I was 15, at home, doing whatever I was doing on the internet, when my grandmother called and told me to turn on the TV. I just sat there thinking "What the fuck is happening!?" as the footage just got crazier and crazier, and the reporters started confirming that this was not just a bizarre accident. And I was in a bad way in my personal life at the time, which made the whole thing even less palatable. The next week for me was a whole lot of getting up, turning on the news, and just trying to wrap my head around it all.

Heh, I've been mentally designing a Frasier pinball table for the past week, so I know that feeling.

Sadly, I do not have the talent in any way.

"Eh" to both. Destiny doesn't really blow my skirt up, and I don't make enough money to care about Apple stuff.

Every bathroom I enter is the right bathroom.

A Buffy the Vampire Slayer game by Rocksteady. It could be incredible if done right.

"News" like this doesn't deserve to be on the front page. You don't need more than the title to know everything that's going on. Retweeting it is more than enough.

Oh, you're the guy that sets the content standards for Giant Bomb? Hmm... odd that you'd pass down a memo via the comments, but then I'm not in the position to determine what belongs where on somebody else's website. *puts pointed emphasis on last fourteen words*

It's not an indictment, I'm just pointing out that it's kind of a waste of everyone's time, especially Patricks. Like, I've noticed that it's a slow day and there's been no Bombin in the AM today for some reason, but this is does not make up for that, and nor does it have to.

How is it a waste of time, though? Probably took Patrick maybe two minutes to put this blurb together and upload it (and that's a generous estimate), a few seconds for us to read it, and now we know the game has had a substantial delay, fulfilling the purpose of the blurb. He could have tweeted it, sure, but only reached a tiny fraction of the site's readers.

I don't think this was intended to make up for Bombin', as that would just be bizarre.

Oh wow, totally forgot about these! That's awesome. (and yes, I'd totally buy a physical pack of these)

Edit: I used "totally" twice. That actually bugs me. I need a life.

Seem fine to me. I have Fatal Frame 1 and 3, and Twisted Metal Black, and the emulation appears to be pretty much perfect. (save for tiny, rare hitches now and then that don't affect gameplay in the least and may actually exist in the original games for all I know)

I really enjoyed this one. The writing was really funny throughout. The resolution with the golden arrow was painfully dumb, but this was a huge improvement over the first two episodes. Also, best comedic Robin Hood since Cary Elwes.

I'm definitely looking forward to next week, as the "creepy" episodes always have a ton of potential.
