I have heard good things about http://www.func.net/ mouse pads, though never used one myself. I just have some generic black one, but its pretty damn great, one of the only soft ones I have had where the material does not peel or anything. Sorry I can't tell you what brand it is, it has no logo/markings at all.

When I was younger, probably around 9 years old, I was playing Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. It took me weeks to get through, did not use any sort of guide/FAQ or anything, it was feeling great. I finally unlock Ganon's Castle, getting that awesome light bridge up to the entrance. But it was right at my bed time, so, I save, and get ready for tomorrow to be fucking epic when I finally defeat that evil bastard. All day at school I was thinking about it, wondering what would be inside, just generally getting super pumped. I straight up run home, burst through the door, and see my little brother playing the game. All good, I tell him what I am going to do today(kick Ganon's ass), and he also gets excited and lets me play. So far, great. I reset the game, get to the main menu....My save is gone. My little brother had made a new game over my save. I lost my shit, I was so angry, did the whole "YOU CAN NEVER PLAY MY GAMES AGAIN" thing, screamed, tried to explain to my parents why I was so upset, but of course they did not get it all. Just kept saying "Why don't you just do it again?" But that was not the point! I totally dropped the game for a few years, eventually did beat it, but I always had that bittersweet feeling. This has led to me being paranoid about saves, ever since then I always use at least 2 save slots, usually more.

Do you guys have any terrible video game memories like this? I don't really mean just a bad video game that you played, more of a terrible memory associated with a game. Of course, it COULD also be a bad game, just not only because it is a bad game. Looking forward to hearing your sad stories!

I support your decision OP, sex with drunk girls who turn up on your doorstep is no good.

To the point, yeah I have had this shit. A friend of mine will always try to log in to my profile/account on whatever game and just play from there, every time I have to tell him to get off of it. Sometimes he will whine about not wanting to start from the beginning, but meh. Dunno why, but he just does not get that I want to play and experience the full game for myself, he just does not see it as an issue at all. But, I don't understand his position at all either, I could never just start a game from the middle on someone else's save. I guess people are just looking for different things out of a game.

This nifty website named Giantbomb. It has a giant wiki of pretty much everything video game related. I guess there is no section for influential people, but it should not be too hard to find them by browsing important games/developers and such.

That said, do you have any questions specifically? Got some smart duders around here who know a thing or two about games.

Yeah, 12gb is more than enough. If you want to overclock things to help game performance, you want to look at your GPU and CPU. HOWEVER be very careful overclocking stuff unless you know what you are doing, you can shorten the lifespan or even burn out your parts if you are not careful.

And for that we can be thankful.

Quiet you! Evangelion is amazing, and if you don't like it you are a terrible person.

This really is not news. Some guy saying "Yeah I would want to make the game" when he does not even own the rights anymore does not qualify.

Bwahaha, I used to play Runescape when I was in middle school, I had to go to a library after school to wait for my parents to get off of work so I would just log in and play it. Good memories.

@TooWalrus: @FluxWaveZ: Yeah, looks like Polygon reviews do go up there, and the P4G one is not up yet, so it could very well surpass/meet TWD score. But hey, either way its awesome. Good games getting the respect they deserve makes me happy.
