@development: It's just a weird minor quibble I have with the game; even if the game has had some graphical setbacks I'm not that upset by it. But everytime I look at characters moving in this game it looks like someone running while on a conveyor belt.

I don't know what it is about the way characters move in this game, but it still bugs me. It just looks off somehow.
I have to believe, I have to believe, that there will be another proper Endurance Run someday, whenever that day comes. While the stealth ERs are all well and good, I much prefer the reliable and daily content that an Endurance Run provides, and that makes all the difference to me.
I don't get the negativity some people have towards this UPF. Vinny's game was exhasted pretty quick (and looked boring & sparse as hell to me), and the stream stuff was goddamn fascinating. A real weird look into some beautiful messed-up internet that reminded me of GB circa '09. Also didn't hear the guys bash people on the stream at all, so no idea what that criticism was about. Some gentle fun-poking and comments, maybe. It also brought up a great discussion about the concept of this kind of always-on voyeuristic streaming, and people's true understanding of it.
Also, they were clearly having FUN. DO YOU HATE THEM BEING HAPPY?
I pretty much agree with this. Seeing them browse streams was amusing and more than anything else, was at least something different than the same old formula. I've gotten incredibly bored of how rote most UPF shows have become, and it was because of the streaming stuff that I watched at all.
Aside from some of the pearl-clutching about the dumber comments in the various chatrooms, it was awesome to see the guys (and Jeff in particular) genuinely enjoying something completely absurd. And yeah, it totally felt like something plucked out of the Giant Bomb of four years ago. "Should we do this? Probably not. Let's do it anyway! Who's gonna stop us?"
Seeing a Venemoth defeat Lance's Dragonite was perhaps the most ridiculous Pokemon battle I've ever seen.
I'll say that Brad's obsession with Dota is actively harming his output as a video games media personality whatever the fuck. We go to 'professionals' because they have more experience and more knowledge and have played a wider set of games. Brad is turning into your friend who only plays World of Warcraft. And when you go to talk to him about new releases he tells you how farming gear is going. When he does play other games, all of his frame of reference is World of Warcraft.
I could not agree more with this.
I got all of mine removed a few years ago, it's not as bad as it sounds. Very soft foods for a few days, get a ton of rest, and make sure to take ibuprofen at regular intervals for awhile even when you don't feel any pain yet; it's better to pre-empt it than to let it start. Don't, under any circumstances, use straws or anything else that requires suction, and be very careful to not disturb where the teeth were removed. Salt water, mouthwash, etc to keep your mouth clean; just don't spit it out when you're done, carefully drain everything out with water instead.
As long as there's no complications and you take good care of yourself it's really not that big of a deal at all. Just a few days of serious downtime.
