  1. Zelda II: The Adventure of Link

    The problem with Adventure of Link is that you're sent back to the start if you die three times (it's three times, right?). I don't know why they thought introducing a life system was a good idea -especially not when it's so unforgiving. I think you also lose all of your experience when you lose all of your life? And then there's the fact that it's so easy to be knocked down pits and losing a life that way. The first game can be difficult at times, but there's nothing that kills you in one hit.
  2. Mass Effect 2

    Three weeks later, and there seems to be a new mission pack called 'Arrival' on the way.
  3. How I Met Your Mother

    I haven't really been feeling these last few episodes, but the latest episode was really good.
  4. bad stuff thread.

    By that logic no one should ever be upset about anything, because there are always people who have it worse. I hope things work out for you, ReZ. And you were so happy about getting that job not too long ago, too.
  5. What Have You Bought?

    Haha, I love how you snuck some bondage rope in there at the end.
  6. Your Favourite Childhood Toys

    It's a bit sad/weird how the extent of Smurfette's personality is that she's 'the girl'. It always creeped me out how she was created by Gargamel and made beautiful by Papa Smurf. Apparently Sassette was created in much the same way (though clearly Papa Smurf never got his hands on her, or she'd be a blond bombshell too). God knows how Nanny Smurf was created.
  7. The Legend of Zelda turns 25

    I love the irony of someone called Retro_Link not having played the entire Legend of Zelda series.
  8. Your Favourite Childhood Toys

    I'm amused by the thought of a Fantastic Four toy set without an Invisible Woman. I love the idea of a generation of little boys growing up with Mister Fantastic and The Thing 2 in a committed relationship when they play with their action figures. This is my favorite example of blatant Kinder Surprise sexism: Oh, how I coveted that nurse dinosaur.
  9. The Legend of Zelda turns 25

    I sometimes think it'd be fun to replay the entire series (especially since I've only played most of the games once), but I'd probably end up giving up somewhere around the second game.
  10. Your Favourite Childhood Toys

    My favorite toys were the hand-painted Kinder Surprise figurines.
  11. Show Us your gaming area.

    You know they have medication that helps with OCD, right, ReZ?
  12. good stuff thread.

    It really doesn't sound like there was any need for date-rape drugs.
  13. Great Games You Struggle To Enjoy?

    Yes, well, that was kind of my point. Space marine games were more fun back in the nineties when they didn't try to tell serious stories. Also, I think I would have to be very drunk to enjoy Gears of War.
  14. bad stuff thread.

    Aww, that's sweet. Of course, it'll seem less sweet when the thread gets its real name back, but still. Really, your post would have been perfect if it had just said "my boyfriend" with a picture of your boyfriend.
  15. Great Games You Struggle To Enjoy?

    I didn't like the game either, but I think the whole genre just doesn't appeal to me. Killing aliens as testosterone-filled space marines used to be fun, but somewhere along the line, they started taking themselves too seriously. The whole wife side plot in Gears of War 2 was as predictable as it was embarrassing.
  16. bad stuff thread.

    It sounds like they were just confused. You should have told them that you're actually bisexual, and I'm sure they would have apologized.
  17. Name That Game: 2011 Edition

    Then 11 has to be Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga. And 15 is Grabbed by the Ghoulies.
  18. Name That Game: 2011 Edition

    It couldn't have been that obscure if I got it almost immediately.
  19. Name That Game: 2011 Edition

    I think people are focusing too much on the wrong part of the hint for number 10. It's probably Dead Rising, which had an unlockable Mega Man outfit.
  20. Glee

    I find Sue Sylvester/Jane Lynch amusing when she's being mean and insulting people. Not so much when she acts like a comic book villain, though.
  21. Glee

    The second season hasn't been as good as the first (though the quality dipped already after the initial thirteen episodes), but on the other hand season two has Chord Overstreet, so... The last few episodes have been alright, though. The Superbowl episode was surprisingly good, and the very obvious attempt to appeal to football fans was amusing.
  22. Name That Game: 2011 Edition

    1 looks like Super Mario World. 3 looks like one of those broken stone things from The Minish Cap. 5 is Metroid Prime 3: Corruption. I think 7 is Super Mario Land 2.
  23. Not the boxer, but just as big of a legend...

    Happy birthday to the non-boxer.
