About two years ago I got a tattoo of Sonic The Hedgehog on my left calf. While I do really like the old Sega Genesis Sonic games, that really wasn't my reasoning for getting the little guy on my leg. I got it a few days after my best friend had his first child, kind of as a way to represent our childhood (Sonic was the first of many games we've played together over the past twenty-plus years). Overall, it's been a really positive experience for me. I've had random people stop me in the grocery store or the movie theater to ask me about it or take a picture of it, which is kind of weird sometimes, but it tends to bring back a lot of good nostalgic memories for people. People kept telling me that I would regret getting it done or that I'd get sick of seeing Sonic everyday, but it's been a lot of fun and I don't regret a thing.

8. Mission Variety - You are constantly doing the same thing over and over again in Destiny. Something to freshen things up a bit would be nice.

This seemed like a really cool idea, but the deal breaker for me is the Genesis sound emulation. If they can fix the off-sounding music in Genesis games, I'll probably pick one up. It looks great through HDMI, definitly clearer than I can get my old school systems looking on an HDTV.

Definitely The Cosby Show. It's like the comfort food of TV shows.

I found out in the middle of my shift today via a steady stream of text messages from a friend of mine and my brother (neither of which follow Giant Bomb that closely, but knew that I did). It was like getting punched in the stomach. I tried to explain the situation to a few of my coworkers, but they didn't really understand who Ryan was and why I was so upset about it. I've had some family member pass away when I was little, but in those situations there was a shoulder to cry on. With this, I feel totally alone. I've never met Ryan, but he's been a part of my life for over ten years now. I'm not the kind of guy who likes talking about how I'm feeling, but I really feel like shit about this. I don't know, it's probably weird to get this worked up about someone you've never met, but regardless, I'm really hurting right now, just like the rest of the Giant Bomb community.

I feel like I've lost one of my closest friends even though I never got the chance to meet Ryan. Between Giant Bomb and Gamespot, I've been reading/listening/watching Ryan's work for probably over ten years now. I really don't know what to say other than rest in peace.

I'd take it as a sign of the second video game crash. Nintendo is too big of a company to just fail, and it would probably make investors think twice about throwing thousands of dollars into the next big game. It would be bad for everybody, regardless of if you like Nintendo or not.

Toasty! (for my text message sound)

My vote goes to Maniac Mansion on the NES.
