I'm glad you spoke up about your experience with your fraternity. Back when I went to college I joined a fraternity too and like you, saw this organization as something better than the others I looked at. The members mostly felt down to earth and actually, quite nerdy. Of course, I accept that fact that numerous fraternities have done extremely dumb actions that are inexcusable and I totally get why the guys on the podcast would have a negative view on fraternity life. Greek Life ain't for everybody. @cubidog1 said it best, there are stereotypes of different groups of people where the group members will either reinforce the stereotype or break it.
TheSw1cther- The channel of Two Best Friends Play, but better since it has let play's and hilarious/dumb videos.
Zemalf- The antithesis of TheSw1cther or something like Game Grumps, but I love it. Its a Let's Play channel that has Zemalf, the Let's Player out of Finland, play mostly really difficult games on the PC. He also has a great voice as he speaks in a mostly quiet and calm manner, which makes his Let's Plays oddly relaxing.
Maximilian Dood- I enjoyed watching his Mortal Kombat content before MKX came out.
RedLetterMedia- Funny video series' that review modern films or old and unknown films and deciding which is the best.
SB nation- Watch it mainly for their Fan Press Conference series, where the skits have sports fans hold press conferences about what their team has gone through this season.
xpanthrex- Awesome Best of Giant Bomb clip videos!
So apparently Nintendo Land will be a thing, sort of. Today Nintendo confirmed that they made a deal with Universal Parks and Resorts to create theme park attractions featuring their numerous IP's and characters in all of the Universal Studios Parks that are based in America and East Asia. The announcement came shortly after Nintendo announced that they made better earnings than was expected, which is partly due to yen becoming weaker. According to Satoru Iwata, sounds like Nintendo has considered the option to go into the theme-park business for a long time, but they really want to introduce new customers to their consoles and games rather than simply just make money off of licensing. If any of you want to read more on the news, here's the link.
This will be an interesting experiment for both Nintendo and Universal to see how much of a draw the world of Nintendo can be in the amusement park business. I think this will work big time if they can utilize their properties right. I have a feeling we'll get at least two Mario rides, one would be a Super Mario Roller Coaster and the other would be a Mario Kart track. What if they went meta and put Baby Park from Mario Kart Double Dash as the track to ride on? Legend of Zelda will most likely get an attraction/ride. Pokemon will also probably get a ride, but if they did it right, make a ride about Pokemon Snap. Animal Crossing might get something too, though I don't know what could be done for that. And the way I see it, other Nintendo IP's like Metroid, Star Fox, F-Zero and Punch-Out will only be represented in the form of either merchandise stores or themed restaurants, sadly. Even though rides/attractions for those would be rad.
@afabs515: Yeah, many cartoon shows based on video games around that time were pretty awful, including Mario. Though believe or not, former wrestler Rowdy Roddy Piper was on that show in the live action portions. So maybe because of that, Piper is officially a Mario character? I want to believe that. Skip to :55 to see Piper.
