Durians: Smell is extremely hit or miss (that you can smell from a mile away), the fruit itself is sweet and creamy and very good (supposedly, I cannot stand the smell either).

Due to the smell, it is actually banned from public transportation in Singapore.

It's a sweet banana+onion kind of taste. Yeah, you've heard me.

I don't have strong feelings about when the week starts. I just know it's Monday, and you people are WRONG.

"Inside (That Part)" should've won it. Did the environmental puzzles in The Witness ever actually do anything, or was it just "hey, I can draw a line in the world. That's neat"?

You know the thing with Tetris where you close your eyes and still see Tetris? You get that with The Witness. You see those line puzzles. And then the game uses that so that you can find the environmental secrets. There's no hand-holding, only your curiosity and experimentation.

The game seems tightly locked to those LCD monitors all over the island, so it's also a sort of illusion. The moment where you break out of that illusion using only your instinct, is 10 times better than any scripted sequence this year. You feel like the smartest motherfucker out there, and you also feel like you've discovered some insane, world altering secret.

So yes.

Whoooo, people sure are uptight about penises. Well OK then. I thought it was silly and fun.

But I'm not from the US, so that may be a thing?

wow... this sucks. the mcelroy humor is dreadful those two arent funny

different strokes but i feel you are in a VERY tiny minority.

I mean, I love 'em, and they're the funniest, but maybe it just doesn't work here 100%. Like, their free-form goofiness maybe is not suited to scripted commentary. It's still amusing, but maybe it doesn't land all that well.

I really enjoyed Justin in the Joystiq days, but I think the shtick has worn off on me. I don't find them funny anymore. But thats ok.

For me their podcast have little shtick to them, just seem like people making jokes. They're also just fun, smart dudes. Sawbones is great, as is The Adventure Zone. But hey, as we've said, to each their own. All I know is that I will never tire of Justin McElroy, and the same goes for Vinny Caravella.
