But we're still all agreeing with the whole "fuck x-axis inverters" thing right? I just want to make sure we have come to a consensus on those crazy fuckers.

Nope. People that invert only the Y Axis are IINO's (Inverts in name only). Us pure breeds want nothing to do with those folks.

The best way to explain the difference between wrong inverted and normal style is this:

Inverted players view camera movement as moving the characters head while normal players view it as moving the characters eyes. If you can break yourself of the stupid "I'm moving this head!" and instead recognize that you are controlling a camera that functions as a pair of eyes the easier it'll be to break out of your funk.

Ummmm, does anyone move just their eyes to look around? If you were walking around with a gun you wouldn't just use your eyes. Nope, inverted makes more sense.

I also invert X Axis. Double inverted

You're missing the point. The difference between normal and inverted controls is purely psychological. Whichever "feels" right entirely depends on how you rationalize camera movement in a first person game. I personally view it as moving my characters "eyes" and so I push up to look up, and down to look down. Whether or not it's technically correct in terms of how human eyes actually work is irrelevant. It's about perception, and for the majority of people the perception is we don't "look down" to look up.

Your point in the first post was "If you can break yourself of the stupid "I'm moving this head!" and instead recognize that you are controlling a camera that functions as a pair of eyes the easier it'll be to break out of your funk." Very clearly saying one view of the control is stupid. So no, I didn't miss your point.

So what is the point of having the door open in a cage match? Why would anyone try to climb over the top if they could just walk out the door? Body slam + walk out the door and the match is over. I just don't understand the entire premise of a cage match unless the door is locked.

Well match of the night goes to Shield vs Evolution as the Shield continues to steal the show. The rest of the show was pretty good. Worst match of the night was the Diva's match but that isn't surprising.

It's the divas match. They don't get to run in worst match of the night because they are always the worst. I missed the cesaro match so I can't comment, but over all I found the show boring and all of the spots felt really flat to me. That Kane and the fire table thing at the end looked like it might have been cool, but it looked like they ran out putting the fire extinguishers on him before he even hit the thing. Then that one guy kept spraying him even long after the fire was out and he was trying to get back into the ring. That whole match just felt comical instead of brutal. Which seemed to be the theme of the night to me. Nothing about the PPV seemed extreme. But I guess that's shame on me for thinking it would be otherwise in the age of PG WWE.

WWE has been PG for 5 and a half years.

I'm actually pretty excited for Extreme Rules. The line up turned out better than I thought it would a few weeks ago.

Rogue web scrappers you say? The internet is the wild wild west..........

It looks like the page numbers are the only thing broken on a lot of these threads - they aren't showing all of them. If you directly change the URL in your address bar, you can get to pages beyond what is listed as the last page.

For example, the Box Office Winners thread mentioned by @aegon shows seven pages, but:

http://www.giantbomb.com/forums/off-topic-31/box-office-winners-league-amazing-spider-man-2-1482044/?page=13

I am having this issue as well on more than one topic.
