I sent this to Patrick via tumbler, but I will reiterate that I thought it was shitty that Patrick bash on the Tetras game/Ubisoft for a problem almost no one will and is probably hard to test.

@patrickklepek Hey man, Toonies are awesome. You want to go out and pick up a cup of coffee? You don't even need your wallet. In the US You'd need to carry 8 quarters in your pocket, weighing you down, making jangly noises while you walk. If you had a toonie then pick up one coin and go.

I never get up in the middle of the night. I go to the bathroom before bed and when I wake up.

I thought that was normal..

@joemotycki: Greetings from a fellow Cowtowner!

@patrickklepek: I once had reservations about Loonies and Toonies ($1 and $2 coins, respectively), but they are actually pretty great. Especially in this age where I almost never carry cash, it's nice to be able to grab a small handful of coins and have 10-20 bucks.

We got toonies and got rid of the penny.

ONLY CANADA DOES MONEY RIGHT.

How do you fuck up Tetris!? I had one of those old massive Brother Word Processors that played Tetris alot smoother than the P24 did, and it ran it off a damn floppy disk!

So you've gotten rid of one useless coin and replaced it with a heavier useless coin.

Is Bombin' in the A.M. the new 'How Did This Get Made' podcast, reciting bizarre Amazon.com user reviews? I'd be down.

It's two bucks! That's not useless! There's like a million things I could buy with just one of those!

I was just gonna come here to say this! The only thing that's missing is a guest appearance from Paul Scheer, but I figure Patrick can pull some strings.

Also toonies are amazing because they look like they just put a silver donut over a regular dollar coin.

@ilikepopcans: In what way? If you watch that video the IGN guys made they confirmed the issue happens on a debug PS4 that isn't even connected to the internet.

Where is Bennett Russell now!? Games journalism needs him!

Jacob Two-Two was a pretty alright show.

It'd be neat to see Patrick try out the DMC series and see why it gets so much recognition while DmC gets shat on. Although he said he would try this with Dynasty Warriors and never really did anything with that as far as I remember. Brad tried this with DMC1, but that was kind of missing the point since he never continued on to DMC3 or DMC4.

I'm really struggling to think of physical goods that might cost two dollars. All I've come up with so far is various office supplies and candy.

I love that we saw this happen live:

Geez, i get up to piss almost every single night. Alex's perfect sleep is a dream to me.

Posted by Haz

It's pretty funny to see @patrickklepek ask what a Toonie is. I wish our currency was called the Toonie. Or Loonie Toonie. Or Toonie Loonie.

Also, how about a double double from Timmies eh with some Timbits to boot and an iced capp?

In regards to the Tetris/Ubisoft thing, IGN released a second video same day. The devs met with Greg Miller and they determined that the problems were being caused by Greg having 2000 friends. Disconnecting the internet fixed the problem.

RE: Pro Wrestler lits - I'm guessing Xavier Woods repeat... and hopefully Stardust/Cody Rhodes as #2?

Also - that guys's amazon reviews are amazing. I was following along in real time, so i also saw all his epic late 2000 reviews. I'm guessing he was a teenage kid at the time, not necessarily a foreigner as Patrick speculated. Or perhaps both.

@mr_creeper: hows that bitcoin conversion rate, son?

This is the future, we don't have to deal with conversion rates! I just send all this antique money I get from work to this one guy on Skype and he takes care of the rest!

Kentucky Route Zero is doing crazy things with storytelling. Each episode feels very standalone. Everyone should play it, one of my GOTYs whenever a new episode comes out. Love how Patrick puts it, you can fill in the blanks with these characters as if you're the one developing their personality. People who like weird fiction, it's a must.

Bears!

My mother was a big Brat Hart fan and stopped watching Wrestling after he went away. I thought he died.

Posted by Luck702

Oh my god, I said the phrase "how do you fuck up Tetris" about 3 times before Patrick asked, "How do you fuck up Tetris?"

Srsly tho, how do you fuck up Tetris?

True.

Scoops, yours and alot of other people's critical personal praise have put that on my wishlist.

The Notch stuff was weird. We're not judging him but we're judging him. No really I don't care but I'm going to talk about it for 15 minutes. No seriously he can do what he wants with his money I'm just saying it's weird to buy a house that big. NO IT'S NO BIG DEAL. WHERE ARE YOU GOING?

It'd be so cool if Notch starts another game under a different name and becomes a success then reveals it was him.

Posted by ArbitraryWater

Bennett Russell seems like he has a lot going on in his life circa September of 2000. I'll just say that I was very entertained by that entire segment. Stuff like Patrick reading a dude's 14-year-old Amazon customer reviews is why I love Giant Bomb.

The chances of that happening are roughly the same as the chances were for Minecraft to become a global phenomenon: Astronomically low.
