    I watched all the MI movies for the first time recently, 2 wasn't as bad as I'd heard, except for the terrible music. 3 wasn't nearly as good as I'd heard.

    I played the first Metroid Prime far enough that the stupid space pirates started popping up in all the places I'd already been, and it annoyed me so much that I never even got to Ridley. I hate when...

    I hope all the members of Giant Bomb's past and present will be able to interact, it's been weird lately that people who worked together so long don't seem to be able to acknowledge they ever existed,...

    My girlfriend moved from Okinawa to Hawaii when she was two. The first time she knew that pineapples grow from a plant on the ground was in her 40s when we visited Okinawa, which has lots of pineapp...

    I rewatched and listened to sendoffs for the Nextlander guys a little while ago, and it was nice to see how fond everyone seemed, and it seemed like they'd all be able to interact still. Then, I don't...

    When my dad got home from work and finally got to sink into the couch he’d say uff da. And I think ope is more widespread than just the Midwest, lots of people say it when they almost walk into some...

    When I got into anime it was called Japanimation, I rented movies like Appleseed and Valley of the Wind, and you'd pay like $35 for two episodes of subtitled Ranma on VHS at Suncoast, or Bubblegum Cr...

    I always loved the Sledgehammer! theme, but I didn't know until a couple of years ago that Danny Elfman composed it. It's one of his earlier themes, I probably wouldn't have known his name when I wat...

  • garnsr posted a message on the post The Very Online Show 22: Destiel is Canon.

    Why aren't Ghostbusters fans the Proton Pack?I think using fandom like kingdom, as in something to be a part of, sounds dumb to me. It started out like stardom, as in the state of being a star, or a f...

    In my experience swimming isn't super common with Japanese people either, I don't know if Asian waters aren't as pleasant for swimming as American ones, or what it is.

    Thanks to Jan for interrupting the wrestling talk and getting the critter talk started.

  • garnsr posted a message on the post 018.

    My first CD player was a SegaCD, and my high school car certainly didn't have a CD player, so I recorded redbook audio from SegaCD games onto tapes, so I could bump Lunar and Robo Aleste and Wonder Do...

    I skip past all the mind-numbing wrestling talk, why shouldn't Jess have the same privilege?

    Warm lettuce smells terrible. I can smell it if my girlfriend has it on her burger or tacos from across the apartment.

  • garnsr posted a message on the post 013.

    Jess does seem to swerve into outrage suddenly while talking about pretty light-hearted things, I've noticed. Some connections are clicking in her head that don't seem obvious to us listeners, I gue...

  • garnsr posted a message on the post 727: Gabe Juice.

    I remember when the documentary Jiro Dreams of Sushi came out, everyone loved it and thought it was so great, when I saw it I thought everyone in the movie and the fans were all up their own asses. Th...

    Lots of Filipino guys in Hawaii have called me "boss" when I've asked them questions, or had to interact with them, as a white guy I always wonder a little if they're being condescending or something,...

  • garnsr posted a message on the post 721: Doctor Hockey.

    There was a time, on PS3, when it seemed like I played a lot of EA and Activision games, and I was surprised by that fact. But, I haven't had much use for either of them on PS4 or 5. Their games fee...

  • garnsr posted a message on the post 720: For Answer.

    I'm surprised Jeff missed "boards" as another early name for levels, it was around the same time as screen or rack, from the early days when a level was one screen, like Pac Man, and I believe they s...

  • garnsr posted a message in the forum topic Anybody else contradicting themselves on their all digital? Or all physical gaming plans?. on the General Discussion board

    I still use my PS3 as my Bluray player, the remote is good, and I didn't want to wear out my PS4 playing discs, and it had eject issues anyway. The first major game I bought digitally was Horizon Zero...
