    While watching this, Chris Plante of Polygon retweeted, back-to-back, reviews from two different sources with vastly different conclusions. I think that's great! One took issue with the game's struct...

    @hidamari: I caught the "not used to fighting a dude" line but missed the Merry-Go-Brown, so all I could think of was "Is this an even lazier Chris Brown joke than I expect from this?" Glad to see it'...

    @mrbene: The kind of funny thing to me is that the few places I've seen serving "Seattle dogs" are unlikely to include any of the corn relish, mustard, or hot sauce, but I have seen jalapenos included...

    I'll grab some microwave popcorn if it's on sale, and then have it around for a quick snack during a movie/Netflix/DVR catch-up kind of night. But if I want to have some good popcorn, I have a Presto/...
