I'm 100% with the OP on this. Waiting for this nonsense to pass perhaps made sense in the beginning. I thought it would go on for a couple of weeks at most, but it's been going on for 2 months now. 2 months of people getting doxxed, having their lives threatened and being forced to leave their homes. It's very likely that we won't see the end of it for some time. I know that both Patrick and Alex have spoken about it, and Brad tweeted some about it a while back, but it kinda shocks me that there hasn't been a frontpage article about it yet.

And I'm never, ever watching a movie with Adam Baldwin in it again.

Divinity: Original Sin or Shovel Knight.

Does completing my bachelor's thesis count? Did that a few weeks ago, and I can't remember ever feeling proud of myself before that.

It's been on my radar for a while now. I really like the style. Reminds me of the old Bitmap Brothers games for the Amiga.

Not exactly bad, but there are a lot of annoyances that make it way less enjoyable than it could have been.

Characters talk way too much, which wouldn't be a problem if the dialogue was actually interesting. Unfortunately, it's not and being told (for example) three times in less than 10 minutes how to swim underwater is really irritating. The game explains too goddamn much to you, and it got on my nerves.

The other big problem I have with the game is the controls. Most of the time they work well enough, but even then I don't feel that they add much to the experience. When they require actual precision, such as stabbing a scorpion's eye, they become really annoying. Didn't help that my right shoulder is kinda busted either.

And finally, the flying sections. Those could have been skipped entirely. Most of the time you're just flying from one location to another, so I don't understand why there wasn't just a fast travel option. Controlling the bird is incredibly frustrating too.

So those are my main problems with Skyward Sword. Some parts of it I enjoyed, even loved, but overall I just found it frustrating. A shame, really.

Dragon's Lair for the NES. Everyone should play that game at least once in their life, because that is one truly awful game.

Keep them! There's a special circle in Hell reserved for people who throw away game boxes, you know?

Just kidding. But I'd probably regret throwing away old game boxes, so I've never done it. Totally understand why some do, even though I think they're monsters. Boxes for old PC games can be especially tricky to store.

I sincerely hope the writing is better this time. Far Cry 3 started out good, but went to crap as it crept closer to the ending. It's a shame, since the gameplay was great. Easily some of the most fun I've had with an FPS in the last 5 years or so.

My ears hurt after I saw The Matrix Revolutions in the theatre. I also remember having a terrible headache after Transformers, but I'm not sure if it was the volume or the quality of the movie itself that caused it. Probably both.

...he took the full load of my Soul Geyser at 99 INT and a Staff of Wisdom +5.

Gross, dude.
