Abby is right, and the issues of Freyja's representation in the game has been written about extensively by people in games media far more intelligent than me, and furthermore it's frankly so sad and upsetting that she has to bring up one, legitimate concern she has with how a game represents women and dig her feet into the ground knowing she's going to receive harassment just for daring to voice her opinion as a woman. Listen to her voice trembling; as a woman I've completely been there and it's painful to watch.

It's doubly sad to come to these comments and seeing, lo and behold, people trying to tear her down. If you disagree with her, that's fine - but at least have the humility to realize that as a woman, she will always, always always know more about and speak with more authority on issues of misogyny than any of the peanut gallery of men who disagree with her because she is a woman who has lived the experience of misogyny.

Hollow Knight is a very hard game, I don't blame the asker's dad for wanting to use it, good on him for picking it up at all.

Between the beautiful art style and the positive word of mouth I want to pick up the new Zelda for the Wii U. Having never played a Zelda game myself before this is going to be a weird experience for me.

I worked at Gamestop for all of three weeks and in that time came to hate the company so much I truly hope the digital revolution comes for them swiftly and decisively. Their practices are so draconian and anti-consumer. The higher ups treated their employees - even store managers - like cattle. I remember being told, point blank "treat the customer rudely or guilt trip them if you have to to make the sale or make a preorder".

I came to the job after having worked for five years at another retail place just prior and was so floored by how nasty the company was I simply stopped showing up after my Black Friday shift.

Why do people immediately think 'ghost' whenever their senses are unreliable? Hallucinations are common, are not just visual, and anxiety doesn't help matters.

Man... can't we just have our fun spooky ghost stories? Of course you can reason it out but "ghosts" is the fun answer.

I once had a teacher who, like Austin, I clashed with a lot ideologically, and there was always this tension between us.

At one point we had to write a 10-15 page paper that counted for like 60 percent of our grade, and she kept failing me on the paper and offering for me to rewrite it and failing me again. I wrote this paper literally 6 separate times, well into the next semester, I even had two teachers separately proofread the paper and both said they would have given it over a 90%. Finally, after being asked to rewrite it or accept the fail the sixth time I had to pull in the dean of students who had to intervene.

I have the Galaxy Note 7. I was probably pretty much the worst case scenario in terms of being screwed over, having preordered the phone, receiving it and scarcely a few weeks after doing so being forced to send it back in for recall (having to drive an hour from my rural home to the nearest Verizon store and spending two hours there during the exchange process). Maybe less than two weeks after that, I'm told to turn it in again, and this time I'm not getting a replacement for this phone that I had been eagerly awaiting for months before it's release.

It's such a shame because, like others, I love the phone. It has every feature I could want - external storage, big screen, pressure sensitive stylus, good camera and a really powerful processor. It had become my inseparable companion for running my small business and I'm absolutely devastated that I have to give it up.

Part of me is that idiotic consumer Jeff is talking about - I was very ready to throw caution to the wind and just keep it - after all, it's about a one in a million chance I will experience any problem. However, I'm slowly beginning to accept that the public consciousness around the phone has become so fearful, I think I just having the phone will probably cause me some social problems down the line, not to mention the whole "you can't take it on a plane" thing.

I'm probably going to hang onto it until the Pixel XL is released and just buy myself a stylus to go along with it. In the mean time I treat the phone in much the same way I'd treat a lit candle - just don't charge it while I'm sleeping, don't leave it alone in a room unaccounted for, stop charging it if it's starting to get really hot, and if I ever smell so much as a whiff of smoke, I'm running it out to to the street immediately.
