Hot Fuzz just hits all the right notes for me, brilliant visual jokes, a decidedly loving parody of cop movies, everything that comes out of Danny's mouth "BUT HE'S NOT JUDGE JUDY AND EXECUTIONER". Everything is just really darn good until he drop kicks that old woman in the face, and then it goes to a whole new level. TEW is just a hair under, I've never been swerved that hard by a movie ending before.

I love all of them, but I only own Hot Fuzz and The World's End, I've never felt the urge to own Shaun.

What about series like Dragon Ball, where they specifically call the planet Earth, but its nothing like our Earth. IE, Dragon Ball doesn't bear any resemblance to our world, there's no Asia, Europe, Americas, etc?

Off the top of my head I can think of Treasure Planet, Aeon Flux, Space Dandy, Saga (a comic series), and while its mostly fantasy, Discworld doesn't seem to have Earth anywhere near it. They do some minor space exploration to check out the giant turtle they're riding through the cosmos on. Also, while digging through Wikipedia and other places, I found out while the series Lexx (which I have fleeting memories of) does go to Earth, they only get there by going to a different universe/reality.

There are plenty of games that never reference the Earth in the fiction, like Homeworld, Star Fox, Jak & Daxter, Ratchet & Clank (if you don't count the Insomniac Museums), Gears of War, Phantasy Star, Kirby, some Final Fantasy, and Borderlands. Hell, Kid Icarus Uprising makes no mention of Earth and there's an alien invasion halfway through the game.

I'm almost constantly finding out about old games I missed, or digging into the enormous backlog I've acquired. It all works out pretty nicely that so few new games actually interest me these days. Its also way fucking cheaper for the most part.

I backed only one thing, a cartoon- Bee and PuppyCat. I backed it cause I really dig what Rebecca Sugar is about. I like what I've seen so far.

No games. I came really close to supporting Torment though.

Bee and PuppyCat is Natasha Allegri's show. Rebecca Sugar is doing Steven Universe, but both came from Adventure Time though.

I backed Barkley 2 aka The Magical Realms of Tír na nÓg: Escape from Necron 7 – Revenge of Cuchulainn: The Official Game of the Movie – Chapter 2 of the Hoopz Barkley SaGa I wanted to support the guys who gave me one of my favorite jokes on the entire internet, but they're like, 3 people so I don't care how long they take to make it.

I also supported the Skullgirls IndieGoGo for more characters, because I love what they do and wanted to see that game reach more people. That has gone swimmingly.

I always hoped they would make a ZOE 3 but now that Kojima left I dunno. At least he gets his name back on stuff where his input actually mattered.

I would've wanted them to do a ZOE 3 with a different guy at the helm and then just let Kojima make something entirely new again.

Kojima only produced the ZOE games, he was never the director or the writer for any of them. He was involved as much as he was for Lords of Shadow, which is to say almost none.

Zelda WiiU to be marketed as a Zelda 30th Anniversary event, confirmed.

Yeah probably. 5 years between console Zeldas is apparently where we're at now, and Skyward Sword had all that 25th anniversary stuff tied to it.

I honestly wish they'd release them more frequently (like 1998-2002 having OoT, Majora's Mask, and Wind Waker), partially because there's about a 50/50 shot that any new Zelda will play it overly safe and not interest me very much. We had Wind Waker which was awesome and different, then they played it safe with Ocarina of Time Version 2.0 I mean Twilight Princess, then they went weird again with Skyward Sword, so I suspect this will be another game where it's just link tooling around Hyrule on Epona, doing regular Triforce bullshit to stop what turns out to be Ganondorf again.

Since 2009 they've actually released a new Zelda game almost every year, Spirit Tracks, Ocarina 3D, Skyward Sword, Wind Waker HD, Link Between Worlds, Hyrule Warriors, and Majora 3D. If anything, it feels a little over-saturated, even if some are remakes.

Pushmo, Mighty Switch Force 1/2, Tappingo 2, Witch and Hero (very simple, but charming and cheap), Gunman Clive (very MegaMan-esque)

If you have played this game for hours and didn't notice the frame rate issues I'm not sure if I envy the ignorance or am glad I have a good pair of eyes.

That is a little harsh, dude. I wouldn't call it ignorance, some people just aren't as sensitive to lower frame rates or frame rate inconsistencies...and others just don't care. Sadly though, I'm one of those people who finds frame rate extremely important. Which is why I don't own consoles.

At some point, it's a little odd that these type of people would feel obligated to post in a framerate discussion, no? If this was back in the 360/ps3 days I would understand a bit more, but now that we have games that hit that 60fps it is even more baffling that some people don't see the difference and still claim to see no difference. I know it sounds harsh, but it is indeed ignorance by definition as they don't see what is actually happening. I can't speak for the person who posted this, but I definitely don't mean offense with the word ignorance. Ignorance is only in place of understanding and learning. Ignorance can be changed.

Its ignorant to assume that we haven't had 60fps games since the NES. 60fps is not a new concept, its just that some games lend themselves better to it than others.
