Thank you for writing this - so well said! I've been seeing MGSV, and in general Kojima, just getting the brutal end of the stick more and more these days.

You backed up your statements with quotes and links and I hope people can see your work. MGS is my all time favorite series, and I can admit that Kojima has… » 8/20/14 11:42am Yesterday 11:42am

That's a lovely little story. I think you're gonna make the kid's year. Having such a connection is really gonna separate you from the other teachers, and I guarantee you his work ethic and enthusiasm will be favorable to say the least. » 8/19/14 10:26pm Tuesday 10:26pm

To folks like us, we're OK with it because we wouldn't over-react and we know where this costume comes from. However, the reaction in general as a whole has been mostly negative.

There are people who are going to get excited to see this but I really think it was a pointless update. We're going to boot up the game… » 8/19/14 1:20pm Tuesday 1:20pm

Man, this was so crazy...I lost my cool seeing Tenzin get punished like that =/

I hope things turn around quick - this was a very bleak ending for an episode and the darker tone continuing from the murder of the Earth Queen is sorta strange to see, not in any negative way in particular. » 8/15/14 6:06pm 8/15/14 6:06pm

Ohh man, the hype is real. I became an avid time from 0 to 60, and grew to love Eclesston's Doctor in a major way. I mostly knew the Doctor as Tennant as that's how the internet recognized him a few years back when I kept hearing about this Doctor Who.
Thus, when the regenration happened, I was very sad to see him… » 8/15/14 6:05pm 8/15/14 6:05pm

I love how they decorated the area in the photos you took! It looks sooo magical.

Also, thanks for the write up! I've heard others describe the game how you put it. The controls are the only things that's worrisome but it's to be expected with that set up. I think it's going to take some getting used to as avid… » 8/15/14 5:58pm 8/15/14 5:58pm

I'm glad you wrote this, but also sad that it needs to be said and reiterated over and over again. People are quick to anger, quick to judge, online. What scares me is how easily people unravel when seeing an opinion they disagree on in the online space and begin to devolve into something less than human.

Most of the… » 8/14/14 9:10am 8/14/14 9:10am

Who's Bean!?

I kid. Yeah, Ganondorf as you mentioned, Wario, and Ness are all important to the roster IMO so I see them making it back. Hoping Ganondorf has a reworked moveset with a sword in place. They replaced Bowser's actual stance and gave him new animations and moves and he really didn't need that… » 8/13/14 9:49am 8/13/14 9:49am

At first I thought I needed it. And then I realized it's...nothing really unique or special =/

Kick that logo off there, spice up the graphic in some other way than putting black and white against a generic red.

Something minimalistic woulda been dope - like an all black system with the smash ball in the center,… » 8/13/14 9:43am 8/13/14 9:43am

Thanks for sharing this adorable story, Ben. I think it's boss how that video game girlfriend helped you make a move on someone in your own class...Although I'm curious about one thing - you mention that you were talking to her for weeks.

What exactly does that mean/entail? o.O » 8/12/14 8:08pm 8/12/14 8:08pm

It's interesting you posted this today - the style of my review takes heavily from the TAY standard as well, and although I have only review under my belt, I'm planning to change that and keep exploring with a new review to be shared with TAY tomorrow. I was more concerned with making the visual elements nicer in… » 8/11/14 8:27pm 8/11/14 8:27pm

This is the worst thing that could happen for a Nintendo game...split pre order bonuses!? I am very disappoint. Surely there'll be a way to get all of these? But if the only way is to buy them as DLC, then that's even more disappointing.

Is it only the retailers that are gaining something out of this transaction… » 8/11/14 10:53am 8/11/14 10:53am

Here in this specific locale of Florida, whenever it rains, it rains crazy hard. And when that happens, I have to unplug my computer and other electronic devices I don't want damaged because there are circuit cuts that want to ruin me!

I learned it the hard way, twice, as I was working on artwork/writing and then… » 8/11/14 10:48am 8/11/14 10:48am

MegaSalamence...Ugh. Gross. Batwing rip off haha!

These megas are all sooo bad. I loved what the community did with their own interpretations for many of them. As a whole I think the mega concept is weak but that's another concept.

Here's a neat Mega Salamence by TomyCase on DeviantART: » 8/10/14 10:49am 8/10/14 10:49am
