    Holy shit! This made my day!

    @stephen_von_cloud: I think the frustration with toilet paper is people have latched on to it as something they can try to control when they feel out of control. For reasons beyond me. And now if you ...

  • Paliv posted a message in the forum topic Corona (COVID-19)- is it affecting you?. on the Off-Topic board

    I second the concern of people’s reaction. In New Mexico in the one big city (Albuquerque) toilet paper, soap and hand sanitizer is almost sold out everywhere. You would think that toilet paper was th...

  • Paliv posted a message in the forum topic Does anyone else feel like the GB staff's tastes are too homogeneous to use the site to reliably find new games anymore?. on the General Discussion board

    Wow, this thread. A lot of expectations here. Personally my tastes have always lined up with the GB crew, especially Jeff and Ryan, so maybe I’m old and don’t get it. I don’t see why they can’t just d...

    @chaser324: Totally agree. I actually think that might have the opposite effect of the intent implied in that post. If it were real, however that’s doubtful.

  • Paliv posted a message in the forum topic I Hope Bernie Sanders Wins the Democratic Nomination. on the Off-Topic board

    @milkman: Participation in primaries is even lower than general election. The politically informed and involved are the participants. I don’t think Bernie’s current success is a barometer for anything...

  • Paliv posted a message in the forum topic I Hope Bernie Sanders Wins the Democratic Nomination. on the Off-Topic board

    @chaser324: I think the democrats know they need someone to win moderates. They are playing the political game rather than being idealistic. Polling shows that a socialist agenda isn’t likely electabl...

  • Paliv posted a message in the forum topic I Hope Bernie Sanders Wins the Democratic Nomination. on the Off-Topic board

    @therealturk: Totally agree. As someone who considers themself liberal, but grew up in a conservative family, the liberal holier than thou approach is borderline intolerable. I find militant liberals ...

  • Paliv posted a message in the forum topic I Hope Bernie Sanders Wins the Democratic Nomination. on the Off-Topic board

    I don't believe Bernie Sanders can garner the votes to win. Few moderates will vote for him. The American left is ignoring the every day joe outside of the urban youth. Don't get me wrong, I like a l...

  • Paliv posted a message in the forum topic Why don't people like the Watchmen?. on the General Discussion board

    @bonbonetti: If I remember correctly, and it's been 10 years since I read the book or watched the film, the book wasn't very action packed either. A lot of pondering with interspersed action, but it's...

  • Paliv posted a message in the forum topic 2001 Jeff Gerstmann's Thoughts on the Console Wars and a Sega Genesis Retrospective. on the General Discussion board

    Thanks for sharing this. It reminds me of the pain of trashing my decade+ old EGM collection because my mom convinced me to de “clutter”. She wasn’t opposed to the magazines, and I am not a pick rat b...

  • Paliv posted a message in the forum topic Is Giantbomb making less content now?. on the General Discussion board

    Man this comes up almost every year. And every year since my first kid was born I just wish I had time to watch even the content I’m most interested in. Before that (since the beginning) I watched eve...

  • Paliv posted a message in the forum topic XFL Discussion Thread. on the Off-Topic board

    @ginormous76: hahaha, unfortunately that isn’t happening. I have a little Kindle Fire that is more conducive to a harmonious marriage. But, it still doesn’t solve the football fatigue.

  • Paliv posted a message in the forum topic XFL Discussion Thread. on the Off-Topic board

    @frytup: yeah, I definitely was feeling football fatigue, and I love football. NFL and NCAA. But a break is nice too. Off season is when I find more time for gaming.

  • Paliv posted a message in the forum topic XFL Discussion Thread. on the Off-Topic board

    @billmcneal: there are several players that are former NFL players.

  • Paliv posted a message in the forum topic Why don't people like the Watchmen?. on the General Discussion board

    I love when these old posts pop up, some of which I commented on 10 years ago. Though I think I missed this one. I personally read the graphic novel before seeing the film. I liked both and was surpri...

  • Paliv posted a message in the forum topic How have your gaming habits changed as you get older?. on the General Discussion board

    As a kid I would play as much as my parents/obligations would let me. In high school and college I played at least a couple hours every 2-3 day, if not more. Now I have a family and am lucky if I get ...

  • Paliv posted a message in the forum topic Game Of The Decade For You. on the General Discussion board

    For me it’s Mass Effect 2. Forza Horizon and Control are the only experiences even close (I never would have thought I’d play a game so close to a David Lynch film). Nothing else comes close to how mu...
