I just dropped a huge upgrade to my PC in lieu of getting a PS4, thinking I'd pick the console up later next year. More and more it looks like I might not have to do that.

I'm Korean-American, but that didn't stop me from connecting to Wei in how he sometimes feels alien around the people who look like him, and yet also feels like an outsider with the people he grew up with. That conflict between the home of ancestry and the home of circumstance is a pretty good encapsulation of the Asian-American experience.

As the only one of my friends without an N64 and Ocarina of Time, this was my heralded 'big-adventure' game that I clung to. Loved it. Tried the sequel years later and was disappointed by how awful it was. I hated what Tetsuya Nomura did with the character design.

@humanity: Ah, I thought you used vectors. Did you just use the polygonal lasso tool for the shapes?

@shingro: I'd argue that what you call 'casual' gaming is a hell of a lot more interesting than anything Activision's franchises have been making lately.

I feel a little silly being so broken up over a guy I've never met before, but this hurts pretty bad. I drew a picture while re-watching videos of Ryan at his best. It made me feel a little better.

RIP big guy.

As far as I'm concerned, Hayder's send-off in MGS4 was a perfect ending for my relationship with that "voice". I'll be sad to not hear his growl in the new one, but Keifer Sutherland is an excellent actor so at least there's a tangible trade-off!

@The_Laughing_Man: Sadly, that's probably one of the reasons why they were closed. I used to work at Gamestop, they obsess over preorders and magazine subscriptions. Used to be they'd give commission. Then they just said "Do it or you're fired".
