  1. New Series to watch with my girlfriend...

    But then he might end up watching America's Next Top Model again! Better not risk it.
  2. Super Mario Galaxy 2

    It is, and yes - the difficulty of the final star has been greatly exaggerated. Still an awesome game overall, though.
  3. Super Mario Galaxy 2

    Nintendo really didn't want anyone to get the final star.
  4. Super Mario Galaxy 2

    Deposit 9999 star bits with the bank toad.
  5. New Series to watch with my girlfriend...

    I second (third? Fourth?) The recommendation for Community. Probably my favorite sitcom on television right now. Parks and Recreation is also great once you make it through the first season (six episodes). 30 Rock is funny, though it takes about half a season for it to hit its stride. How I Met Your Mother is funny and not too taxing, as others have said. If you haven't watched it yet, ReZ is right about Arrested Development being awesome. It will require your full attention, but it's a great show to watch with/at the same time as someone else. If you want something that mixes comedy and drama, Ashley is right about Chuck being fun, even if it's a bit predictable at times. I also really liked Terriers, though sadly it was canceled after only thirteen episodes. Great show while it lasted, though. It reminded me a bit of Veronica Mars, which is also really good if you haven't watched it yet. Breaking Bad, Mad Men and The Wire are all fantastic shows, but Ashley is right about them requiring your full attention. I think the first two shouldn't be too taxing, but The Wire is very emotionally draining, to the point where it's almost painful to watch at times. But it's also utterly brilliant, so if you think your girlfriend would be into it, then definitely watch it. There's also Dexter, Six Feet Under, The Sopranos, The Walking Dead, Boardwalk Empire... I know you said she wasn't into science fiction, but if she's open to it, you should at least try to get her to watch the miniseries for Battlestar Galactica. She might still like that (Caprica is great too, but also science fiction). Basically I recommend every TV show ever.
  6. Happy birthday, lostmario!

    I already tried to include you in my birthday wishes for Jayseven, so you get nothing from me. Sorry. :p
  7. Jaysus!

    Happy birthday to Jayseven and anyone else whose birthday it is today so that they don't feel left out.
  8. How Much Toilet Paper is TOO MUCH?

    Very carefully. "How many wipes with the family dog are too many?" Newspaper might be a viable alternative for Scoop next time, though. Then he wouldn't have to worry about wasting toilet paper.
  9. How Much Toilet Paper is TOO MUCH?

    Maybe Scoop's friends are poor? Or just really cheap.
  10. How Much Toilet Paper is TOO MUCH?

    Well, that settles that, then.
  11. How Much Toilet Paper is TOO MUCH?

    Two squares, Scoop. You're a bad friend if you use more than that. Toilet paper doesn't grow on trees. This has been another quality post from your sexy pal The5thChil- Magnus.
  12. Name That Game: 2011 Edition

    7 is Full Throttle. Great game.
  13. The Amazing Spider-Man

    I think that was Diageo's point. Hence the finger-less gloves.
  14. Hmm. Very well, then. I feel special again. ;)

  15. 2010: Cinema in Review.

    Yes. Watchitwatchitwatchit. If you somehow managed to enjoy the later Shrek sequels, you're going to love How to Train Your Dragon.
  16. N-E Awards 2010 Results!

    At least let her post a little before you scare her off. I did briefly consider picking The 5th Children as a nickname, but I figured that was a surefire way to get banned.
  17. Hatred For Webcomics

    This is going to sound really petty, but my brother's most annoying friend came over about an hour ago, and the first thing he did was retell a recent Ctrl+Alt+Del comic about World of WarCraft that he'd found absolutely hilarious. I feel totally justified in my hatred for him right now. THIS SOUNDS EVEN PETTIER AS THE FIRST POST IN A NEW THREAD AAAAH This is a thrip by jayseven at the request of Dannyboy and Scoop. Is there a particular webcomic you cannot abide? if so, why?
  18. N-E Awards 2010 Results!

    If I were really Raining, she'd be stupid to defend me. The smart thing to do would be to attack me viciously to fend off suspicion. If I'm anyone, it's obviously Diageo. Sorry, Diageo. We've/you've been made. I second this. Congratulations, Dog-amoto.
  19. How I Met Your Mother

    Haha, I thought that was a weird-looking high five. Totally missed that. Great episode. I loved the callbacks to earlier episodes, and of course the ending was pretty emotional. I saw the ending coming, though that may have had something to do with people's reactions to the episode in this thread.
  20. Suddenly I don't feel so special anymore! :p

  21. Jetlag and post xmas blues...

    Wow, you suck at HEY I'M BACKs. Like, really, really suck at them. :p My condolences on being apart from your girlfriend, though. That's the problem with long-distance relationships. At least you have something to look forward to!
  22. N-E Awards 2010 Results!

    Yeah, I realized that I sounded a tad creepy, but I figured that the joke might eventually become funny if I ran it into the ground enough. Kind of like with I R ARTICH- Oh, wait.
  23. good stuff thread.

    Nintendohnut officially has the best job ever. I'm surprised he didn't get a free puppy, but I guess they have to save something for tomorrow! As for me, I discovered that I have way more money in my wallet than I thought. Now to resist the urge to spend it all...
  24. N-E Awards 2010 Results!

    Hey, desperate times call for desperate measures. You have to get your visage out there if you want to win. :p
  25. What Have You Bought?

    Thanks, I didn't think the game was well-known enough to have received its own thread. I'll check it out. Can't seem to get a handle on if the game is so bizarre it's good or if it's just bizarre.
