  1. Illustration thread

    Well, it's not an illustration, but it is Nintendo-themed. I made this refrigerator magnet out of Sculpey clay before Christmas.
  2. Mass Effect: Andromeda

    Yes, Shepard being indoctrinated and every character you've met over the past ~180 hours dying horribly makes for a much better ending.
  3. Your 2017 Gaming Diary

    Well, I'm done for the year. Here's my final tally. I finished less than half as many games this year, but I tried to go for quality over quantity (I also got addicted to Dark Souls...).
  4. PlayStation 4 Console Discussion

    If there's no port coming, I would replay the game before the servers are shut down. I couldn't beat these games without summoning if my life depended on it.
  5. PlayStation 4 Console Discussion

    The Demon's Souls servers are being shut down worldwide at the end of February 2018. This has to mean a PS4 port is imminent, right? It'd be nice to know before the servers shut down...
  6. Ni No Kuni II (PS4)

    From the article: The battle system was my least favorite part of the first game by far. Absolutely hated it. I have no idea what changes they've made to it in the sequel, but I can't imagine a scenario where they could possibly have made it worse.
  7. I've beaten 50, although that's counting Souls bosses I summoned for. It still counts even if someone else did all the work, right? Happy to see Riku on the list. He almost got me to give up on Kingdom Hearts. And then I got stuck on him again in Chain of Memories and had to put that game aside for over a year because I got so frustrated. Souls has nothing on Kingdom Hearts.
  8. American Horror Story

    I disagree and think that you should only watch Murder House and then stop. Well, Asylum might be worth watching too. Coven was the worst thing that has ever been created by any person ever. Freak Show was boring. I haven't been able to bring myself to watch seasons five and six yet.
  9. General Book Thread

    I've had terrible luck with audio books after finishing up the Discworld series earlier this year. I decided to tackle The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, and I loved the first book, but after that, the way Douglas Adams was clearly just making things up as he went along and the way he would constantly stall for time when he couldn't think of what should happen next quickly started driving me nuts. It didn't help that Martin Freeman did an awful job as a narrator, either. Despite all that, I thought I'd listen to the Artemis Fowl series next, since Eoin Colfer wrote the final Hitchhiker's novel. I realized less than an hour into the first book that I'd made a huge mistake, but I still trudged through the first three novels because I'd bought them and by God, I was going to get my money's worth (I didn't realize until I had two hours left of the third book that Audible has a 'great listen' guarantee, but oh well). After that, I discovered that Tina Fey's Bossypants was available on Audible (it hadn't been the last time I'd checked). And it was good! Finally! I'm currently listening to the Hunger Games trilogy, and... it started out so well. I loved the first two books, and I thought people were probably exaggerating about the third one, but man. It has been completely horrible so far. I have no idea how Suzanne Collins managed to drop the ball this badly. I only have four chapters left, so I should have this wrapped up tomorrow, thank God. I'm not sure what to listen to next. I've been toying with the idea of listening to Stephen King's It, but it's 45 hours long, and my luck hasn't exactly been the best lately. Edit: Decided to go with Amy Poehler's Yes Please as a palette cleanser. I'm pretty sure no one's going to get their head cut off or get blown to bits in that book. Well, I guess you never know with Amy Poehler.

  11. General TV Thread

    I love conversations about search engines.
  12. PlayStation 4 Console Discussion

    The Undertale trophies are up, and they're about what you'd expect.
  13. What Have You Bought?

    Yeah, that's really ironic.
  14. Name Changes

    Or how about Dr Bob! I'm pretty sure that's available.
  15. Name Changes

    There's already a Matt, though. Maybe you could be Matt123! Or, if that's also taken, Matt456.
  16. What Have You Bought?

    I'm disappointed you didn't go with Tomb Raider Anniversary for the PSP.
  17. Your 2017 Gaming Diary

    The co-op aspect is a lot more fun in co-op, shockingly.
  18. N-Europe Summer Meet 2017

    Erm. You're a bit early, Danny.
  19. Playstation Plus Free Games

    No, they released a standalone version.
  20. PlayStation 4 Console Discussion

    Titanfall 2 is worth buying just for the campaign, which is only five or six hours long, so it wouldn't keep you away from Overwatch for very long.
  21. Photobucket Replacement

    It sounds like a joke, but yes, about three weeks ago they suddenly started requiring a paid subscription to hotlink images. And yes, it's really $400 a year. But it's $40 a month if you don't pay for a full year in advance, so $400 is a great deal if you think about it.
