  1. Well, "1-up"... anyone who's not a gamer is going to think "outdo someone" instead of "extra life." Or "nerf" as in making something less effective/overpowered... And then I guess you get the shorthand/acronyms that have more or less become their own words, like HP = hit points, health, etc. or XP = experience (points).
  2. You know, from the way people were going on, I was expecting something really, really confusing and strange with Metal Man's track. This isn't the first time a Robot Master was described as having some weird, awkward crush in one of these songs. ;P Regardless, it's pretty awesome. But yeah, Top Man is an easily recognizable theme and it's quite catchy, so I agree with Kyle on the mass appeal thing. I think it'd be a good pick for a submission.
  3. Isn't it Tara Strong? She's done... quite a few more cartoons and video games than just this and MLP. It's not much of a connection.
  4. By that logic, this is also a positive portrayal, since she's the hero.
  5. I no rite?! But I guess it doesn't hurt to say happy birthday or something.
  6. So, actually talking about the game content here... for anyone who's past the Ancient Cistern, have you heard of the Japanese story, The Spider's Thread (Kumo no Ito)? That's some cool inspiration for a dungeon theme.
  7. That's what I was thinking. Well, not necessarily the deaf part, but that the videos all appear the same and someone jumped the gun before using their brain.
  8. So, I just heard about this. I have two things to say: 1. About time LoM got some love. 2. This had better be awesome.
  9. Sonic 06 is a disaster condensed into disc form. However, I would recommend the soundtrack; there's some very nice stuff in there.
  10. Nope. It's kind of weird when you end up talking Zelda with someone and have no "canon" pronunciation to refer to for most of the names. SAR-ia, Ka-kuh-REE-koh, Guh-ROO-doh, NAV-ee, JAH-boo JAH-boo, Skull-TUL-ah (though that would be more likely with two L's at the end, I guess)... Then again, despite all the games saying "MAR-ee-oh" the ads seem to use "MAYR-ee-oh" a lot. To me, that's kinda up there with "Eye-rak" and "Eye-tal-ee-an."
  11. Yeah, man! Ever since we bought it, our washing machine has NEVER been able to connect to an online network. WTF.

    Portal 2

    They certainly did some interesting and immersive stuff in that regard, but I have to say, there was this one test chamber that I think would have had me ready to tear my ears off if I hadn't gotten through it any quicker. It wasn't a long or deeply involved puzzle, but the "music" had this kinda pulsating quality that just intensified the more you progressed and it got a bit annoying.

    Keep in mind that the very first thing GLaDOS did upon activation was try to kill everyone around her for no real reason. Even with "morality" installed, and being an AI/computer system, she's not exactly a rational, stable being. She's got routines and protocols and all, but she's also got a pointless sadistic streak that existed even before Chell makes it personal.
  14. A lot of people apparently have a problem given that it doesn't seem like it's made immediately clear that the Dream World is something you play on a website and not within the game itself.
  15. I was having a similar problem... the loading screen would simply stay at 0%. Then I tried it on a different computer and it went through in a matter of seconds. It consistantly refuses to connect from my usual computer. So... yeah. I have to say, I'm rather disappointed that the time of day has absolutely zero influence on catch rates. It just seems to take away from some of the fun and surprise when just about everything that will ever be there is there.
  16. Well, I finally got on board (Black, started with Snivy). It's fun getting into this again, but I feel like I'm having trouble finding much in the way of Pokemon I actually want to use... I don't mean to sound like some "purist" snotbag, but a lot of the new critters just aren't connecting with me, and the ones that seem tolerable aren't pulling their weight. I'm enjoying the game, but I kinda hope it improves in this regard so I can actually build a proper team and stop feeling like I'm lugging around a pack barely-useful nitwits. Also, that Audino thing spits out so much experience it almost feels like cheating. I dunno. Maybe I'll hit my stride soon.
  17. It's almost like Capcom likes referencing classic rock songs or something... Dead Rising 2 - Americana Casino http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=21OoEfakQzg AC/DC - Thunderstruck http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EKmYlnQv_dg
  18. It probably wouldn't be something you could just throw together, but a little moogle suit would be bloody adorable.
  19. As a kid, I was always immensely disappointed when a game's booklet didn't have character profiles or artwork. Nowadays, you can at least find a lot of the cool official art online, but back then all you had was either in the booklet or maybe in a magazine article. Games are supposed to be an immersive experience, so it was always nice when the booklet took that extra step to draw you in.
  20. It is looking kind of touch and go at the moment with that regard... as if everything else wasn't bad enough. I think they've said the radiation around the plants is already up eightfold. There was something especially creepy about seeing buildings not only being swept along by muddy water, but being aflame at the same time...
  21. I wondered when this was gonna go up. Very chill; while it's similar to the original in this regard, I really enjoy the instrumentation. It adds a great (but subtle) edge to the general theme.
