    I haven't been to Pizza Hut in years, but I remember preferring their pizza over other brands-- although I don't think I've had Papa John's or Domino's more than once.I admit to being sort of trashy,...

    I'm not familiar with most of these artists-- who should I listen to first?

    @scarycrayons: One of my favorite things about Video Games Awesome is that the women are NEVER the ones scantily-clad. It's always the dudes.@forkboy said:There goes my plan for doing livestreams of C...

  • medacris posted a message in the forum topic Listen to music on vinyl? Why/why not?. on the Off-Topic board

    No. I've never owned a record player, and to be honest, after listening to the same song on several different media, they all sound the same to me, regardless. I do still buy CD's, though. I like hav...

  • medacris posted a message in the forum topic What do you honestly expect from games journalism?. on the General Discussion board

    "Gamergate" was, to me, never about games journalism at all. It was 100% about the idea that a bunch of anonymous idiots on the internet got offended that someone had a different opinion than they di...

  • medacris posted a message in the forum topic Does framerate and resolution truly matter to you when buying console games?. on the General Discussion board

    No. As long as the art direction is good, the game doesn't run like I'm jogging through maple syrup, and nothing's blurry, I'm fine with it. Most of the games I play are a few years old by the time I...

  • medacris posted a message in the forum topic Has the ending to a film ever changed your opinion on that film?. on the Off-Topic board

    I always end up seeing movies super late, and often have them already spoiled for me, but I think having had Fight Club spoiled for me actually made it a lot better.

  • medacris posted a message in the forum topic How Do You Feel About Free On Disc DLC?. on the General Discussion board

    I'd rather not have DLC altogether. At least, not important, story-related DLC, items, level cap increases, or anything that penalizes people who either can't afford it, or outside a region lock. Cos...

  • medacris posted a message in the forum topic Do you enjoy going to parties?. on the Off-Topic board

    Social interactions are complicated for me. I was either totally ignored or the most popular bullying target in school, and although I learned not to take it personally, it still makes talking to peo...

  • medacris posted a message in the forum topic What do you do when the staff hates a game you are playing?. on the General Discussion board

    Shrug and move on. Especially if it's just a matter of taste. No review site or magazine has a person who enjoys each genre, and sometimes, the person chosen to review something is the person most li...

  • medacris posted a message on the post Here's the Next Game From the Creators of SteamWorld Dig.

    @seruk: It's a great game. My friend's sister did art on it, I believe (I don't know her name, unfortunately, just her online handle). I've been meaning to draw Rusty and Dorothy eventually. I was ki...

  • medacris posted a message in the forum topic Had to get this off my chest. This is my pain.. on the Off-Topic board

    To clarify, are/were the two of you dating, or was this just a crush? Because I've been in the situation where I got jealous of platonic friends when I was dating someone, and I was jealous of potent...

  • medacris posted a message in the forum topic Should ALL video games be "fun?". on the General Discussion board

    All I ask from a game is that it stimulates me mentally in some way, and is interactive. It doesn't have to be "fun". If gaming wants to be considered an art form, we're going to have games that discu...

    It seems like a lot of people are running into this problem, OP. It's not uncommon for a Kickstarter to throw in their previous product for free, as thanks/incentive to back, but with games, you end ...

  • medacris posted a message in the forum topic What Animes Would Dan Ryckert Like?. on the Dan Ryckert board

    He might like something really dumb and silly, too. I watched the videos where he played Muscle March and Katamari Forever with his dad, and he seemed to get more of a kick out of them than his dad d...

  • medacris posted a message in the forum topic I'm not excited for Destiny and i feel like i should be.. on the Destiny board

    Don't feel ashamed. You are under no obligation to play or like any game, no matter how much hype or how many positive reviews it gets. It's all a matter of taste.

  • medacris posted a message in the forum topic What exactly do you want from games journalism?. on the General Discussion board

    Opinions similar to mine, with a lot of thought put into why they liked a certain game. Opinions different to mine, opinions I disagree with, but with valid reasoning to back it up. Let's say T has pu...
