Adding an item to a list now results in a red error saying there's a problem. Simply hitting save again "fixes" it. Still unable to reorder or delete items in the list, which is increasingly becoming a lot more annoying

Adding my voice to the masses: I can add new items to a list, but trying to do anything else (changing order, removing items) causes a 404 page to pop up

At first I was confused as to why you would include a reference to a completely irrelevant show that used to be famous, but that no one really cares about anymore.

Then I realized it was a genius meta-troll and this article became worth reading. Thank you.

You might want to clarify that doing the desert first in no way will stop the cutscenes from triggering. The bug only occurs in a very specific situation that requires you to complete that entire section, then do a bit of backtracking (instead of progressing) in order to speak to a character in a different area of that level.

There is a strange, misguided sentiment that all award shows are bad, so should we really expect anything better?

Come on now. Jeff, do you know why you didn't connect with the Academy Awards? Because you don't like movies or TV shows that much. And do you know why your female roommates absolutely nerded out over it? Because they like movies and TV shows.

So, take that logic to the next plausible step: people who like things want to see an award show about things they like. That's it! That's why people are demanding a better VGA, because god damn, we gamers might not like the Academy Awards or the Grammys or anything else out there, but we fucking LOVE video games, so we want to see a decent award show.

There's another, far more dangerous argument out there that we should just ignore it if we don't like it. You know, like if you shut your eyes you become invisible.

The VGAs sucked, the VGAs have always sucked, and Spike TV is awful. But...the VGAs are what we have. There are lots of internet-based award shows and developer-focused award shows, but they are small fish compared to the VGAs (which is a molecular fish when compared to the other award shows, but whatever). They are the most wide-reaching and well known award show for our medium, and until that changes, they need to be the target of our arguments.

Acting like sales don't matter is crazy. I'm not about to make it the masturbatory focus that's found on other parts of the web, but I find it interesting and I'm pretty sure others will, too.

Statistics are cool and all, but bad statistics are far more dangerous than no statistics at all. Considering the NPD doesn't cover DD, or that it doesn't take into account data from 'small mom and pop stores' like Wal-Mart, makes it largely irrelevant for any sort of tracking. Doubly so now that they refuse to disclose most numbers 
 
NPD used to be fun when it'd ignite flame wars on GameFAQs and GAF. Not even the fanboys pay it much mind.

This is a game I will buy because it is a game I will buy 
 
I'm trying to make a response that makes about as much sense as this trailer

You can never go wrong with Mario Kart, and you can never go wrong with Retro. I just hope that's not all they're working on
