Hah. "Games press". As if this is even a remotely relevant qualification for Giant Bomb.

@ktargo: Holy fuck, I have never heard this Big Blue remix from Mario Kart 8 before. Might just be the greatest remix of that song, ever.

Also, I love this thread. A lot.

Also, after doing some digging on my own for that Mario Kart 8 soundtrack, the remix for Mute City is also pretty fantastic.

Please God let everyone answer that the new video player is important. So funny to hear Jeff blow up Flash's spot when the site still uses it. Must be frustrating for him and the crew, hopefully it makes the docket for things to do soon.

You can just select HTML5 in the current the player, you know.

My priority would be moving beyond 720p. I know Jeff has said this is expensive, but if we're compiling a wish list it should be there.

I voted for the new video player for sure. I know there's obstacles to overcome there that are still outside their influence (especially when it comes to Flash, but even if you choose HTML5 the player can suffer), but anything that could be done to help keep framerates for videos high would be great.

Don't preorder video games, and stop watching trailers or reading preview material.

That's about the only advice I can give.

The trend continues - you know you've truly made it on the internet when you've been drawn as a Persona character by someone in the GB community.

The tone-deafness of EA when they make showings at E3 continues to be a thing that makes me hate video games, but the fact that it is pretty much the first shot out of the gate for E3 is really making it sting this year.

This one's pretty garbage, and I was only reminded of this bland leather-clad mountain of boobs and objectification because of Vinny playing Ninja Gaiden recently.

Surprised this wasn't mentioned yet either - but likely because it's so bad it's forgettable.

I had already made some thoughts earlier and elsewhere, but I'll leave them here as well, to maybe add to the conversation as to why he felt important to me and maybe others, or at least as much as someone can leave behind even if you've never met them before in person:

With all his different personas and his re-inventions, the many faces of Bowie gave some of us the inspired confidence and permission to be whoever we wanted to be, and ultimately to just be ourselves - no matter how weird or different we are.

This is Major Tom to Ground Control.

I'm stepping through the door, and I'm floating in a most peculiar way, and the stars look very different today.

For here, am I sitting in a tin can, far above the world.

Planet Earth is blue, and there's nothing I can do.

See you later, Starman. Thanks.
