Haven't played a Forza Motorsport game for years (I think Forza 2 or 3), but that seems like a weird omission for a sim racing game considering how vital different tyre compounds are to strategy in many racing series.

@cookiepup: It sounds like the person who paid them just asked for a shoutout to the trans community, and what they did was give a very heartfelt and genuine account of their personal experiences with people from the trans community. There is a big difference between just filling that request and going the extra mile to be welcoming and supportive of people who may be going through a tough time struggling with their identity.

@kyniro said:

Is the word "burgle" the reason for the spam? The above post is talking about Mcdonalds and "burgle = burger or hamburgler". "Bananas" can't be helping either.

This is the first time I can tell that the spam has been for anything that seems to make sense on that front.

Looking back at the deleted spam posts, there's everything. Taxes. 4K Video downloaders. Investments. Something weird and I think is Russian in origin but I can't tell what they're actually advertising. Grief quotes (no idea what that's all about). "nose-piercing-how-much-time-will-it-take-to-heal". Home dental surgery. GPS updates.

And that's just a random selection.

@bisonhero: It has been more than half a dozen times. There are 18 deleted spam comments on this thread. No idea why that many spambots have chosen this thread to make their stand. We're probably just going to lock the thread, but a small part of me wants to see how long they keep coming back.

@wess: Brilliant, thanks duder. You're a star!!!

It took a while to get through the "interference" and then it kept loading/saving all the time on the island, but I got there in the end. Man does Nintendo not know how to do online. What a mess. This is my first time traveling to another island. I heard people complaining it was bad, but I wasn't expecting it to be that bad.

@wess: If I'm still up when you open your gates, I'd love to jump on.

I know it doesn't count because it's not Giant Bomb content, but Jeff's Kane & Lynch 2 review was pretty important in the history of Giant Bomb.

If any of you even think about posting about Metal Gear in the Anime forum we'll.... I dunno, think about moving it to the correct forum or something. Or leave it where it is. Metal Gear Solid is just Anime really.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

It definitely looks like someone has used that bomb for inspiration. Putting a face on a bomb isn't necessarily the most original idea in the world, but that bomb has a lot of similarities.

✅Round black(ish) bomb

✅Right eye bigger than the left eye

✅Open smiling mouth with visible upper teeth and two different shades of red/pink to show the inside of the mouth

✅Curving fuse with an orange star at the end

It doesn't have the reflection spots above the left eye, it doesn't have the mouth intersecting with the right eye, and it has added eyebrows. But overall it's still very very close.

Who cares? The aim of communication is to convey a message to someone else. If you are understood, the purpose has been served. Say X, say cross. Both convey the same meaning. It doesn't matter.
