Where's Punch Out!?

Punch Out! is literally nothing but pattern recognition and exploitation distilled into its purest form.

Isn't a "city chicken" a pigeon?

The tagline for "Lucy" is something about that old chestnut that "we only use 10% of our brains." Turned me right off the film despite the incredible turning-on-power that is Scarlett Johansson.

Dark Souls

The entire park is greyish brown. They hire people to dress in armor and mope around always ready to give you a depressing anecdote. The rides inflict actual, physical pain. There are blind corners everywhere with large employees waiting around them with giant rubber maces that they wale on you with. Poison spume ride. Lots of high walkways with no safety railings. Grotesqueries abound.

Look to the past. There hasn't been a really good one in years. The last truly excellent one was probably Dragon's Quest VIII. Though I haven't gotten around to Ni No Kuni yet, and I hear it might be pretty good.

Mang! What's wrong with 22% of people? Mustard - in almost all of its forms - is awesome! The best condiment by far. Ketchup is nothing but tomato flavored sugar. Mayo is potentially good but unfortunately mostly vile. Even a cheap shitty yellow mustard is better than both 95% of the time. A decent spicy, or dijon mustard with seeds in it is 2000% better 100% of the time! MUSTARD!!!!

As my number of play sessions increases, I find myself dreading picking up any bugs or crafting items because the game feels the need to explain to me what each of them are the first time I pick one up after reloading. It's not like they're useful descriptions either, just "Oh, this bug is cute and lives in the forest!". Whoopty fucking doo game! I didn't care the first time you told me, why would I care the eighth? It's especially hilarious when after describing the item to me again, it cuts away to the item screen and shows my total collected go from 13 to 14! This often happens in the middle of combat...

Is it human kindness to hand an ex-smoker a cigarette?

What if there's a very good chance their life depended on that cigarette?

How good a chance are we talking here?

A self evident chance. Like you could look at the person and immediately tell that their life would go to shit if not for this one cigarette. For hard numbers, let's say 75%.

Well, in this unbelievable, seriously improbable, hypothetical situation, I suppose I'd give the person a cigarette then.

I recently completed Prototype. It also featured some absolutely shitty escort missions. I feel your pain.

Anyone remember SaveKaryn? Some New York woman got herself into a whole bunch of debt buying designer shoes and handbags and shit, made a website asking for money to pay off her debt, and paid it all off down to the last penny on the donations of strangers. Sometimes I just want to slap people.

For human kindness?
