speaking of geese, saw some videos for this game on the Switch: https://www.goose.game/

They aren't all cranky... sure, it's hard to find one in a good mood, but still.

@  unluckiness : (21 September 2019 - 09:12 AM)

Cranky geese is a hell of a tautology

@  wonko the sane? : (21 September 2019 - 09:07 AM)

... that's like the third flock of geese this morning. Do those cranky bitches know something I should know?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 September 2019 - 06:26 AM)

Also, she pronounces her own name "Zuh-see".

@  TM2-Megatron : (20 September 2019 - 03:04 PM)

I think I'd read a while back she was born in Berlin

@  TM2-Megatron : (20 September 2019 - 03:04 PM)

I thought Zazie Beetz was really fantastic in Deadpool 2. Really looking forward to seeing her in Joker.

@  Liege : (20 September 2019 - 12:05 PM)

Any sightings of Ratchet at U.S. Walgreens yet? A couple of stores around me have recently restocked their toy aisles but no Ratchets yet at those ones.

@  Nevermore : (20 September 2019 - 03:54 AM)

You don't even hear a hint of an accent, and she only very rarely chooses some odd wording where she probably wasn't familiar with the more appropriate alternative due to its relative obscurity.

@  Nevermore : (20 September 2019 - 03:41 AM)

Just watched what's possibly the most relaxed interview ever of a German Youtuber interviewing Zazie while walking around Berlin. Turns out she was born in Berlin and spent quite some time in Germany.

@  Nevermore : (20 September 2019 - 03:39 AM)

Actors and actresses I had no idea speak fluent German, part 4.231: Zazie Beetz from Deadpool 2.

It's too bad it's like this because some of what they're doing with tiny cars is pretty cool, but I'm not willing to sign up for that f-ing hassle.

@  Benbot : (18 September 2019 - 02:13 PM)

At this point I'm trying to decide how much of a markup I'm willing to pay some scalper scum or if I should just say to hell with it.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (18 September 2019 - 02:11 PM)

That is pretty much the constant story with Hot Wheels. Anything you might actually want has most likely been picked clean and marked up.

@  Benbot : (18 September 2019 - 02:02 PM)

I've been watching some Youtube Hot Wheels videos out of boredom and discovered there exists a new car that just came out maybe a month ago that looks just like one I had when I was little, and I've been looking around hoping to get it. Slim picking everywhere, but online there are a slew of sellers asking for 3 and 4x the retail price, plus a hefty shipping markup.

@  Benbot : (18 September 2019 - 01:59 PM)

Oh, that explains the problem I've encountered with finding one little car

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 September 2019 - 01:31 PM)

Oh boy. I work at Target, and literally every single morning, there are two or three guys outside who make a beeline straight to the Hot Wheels.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 September 2019 - 09:55 PM)

I've never read the source material and don't know much about it, but I enjoyed the first film quite a bit, and found the second alright

@  Sabrblade : (17 September 2019 - 09:49 PM)

The first movie was definitely not for me. I flat out hated it. Didn't even bother with the sequel.

@  Maruten : (17 September 2019 - 05:02 PM)

I liked the first movie a lot and enjoyed the original volume of the book, and the way they were developed in parallel was really interesting. It all got super extra unpleasant as soon as they went back though. I don't remember really whether the initial sequels are "good" or not, but either way both the second movie and the second run of the book quickly demonstrated that the property sure wasn't for me.

@  Paladin : (17 September 2019 - 04:45 PM)

i have a real hard time offering praise of anything connected to an utter shitstain like Mark Millar.

@  Rycochet : (17 September 2019 - 01:23 PM)

Kick Ass 2 was okay for what it was, a sequel to a film that was okay, just okay. It had a good performance from Nic Cage while the sequel had Jim Carrey who decided he didn't want to promote it after one of america's regularly scheduled massacres.

@  Benbot : (17 September 2019 - 12:20 PM)

Was Kick Ass 2 really that bad? I never got around to seeing it, but after watching the first movie again the other day, I'm thinking about it.

@  wonko the sane? : (13 September 2019 - 01:54 PM)

@  Anonymous X : (12 September 2019 - 11:11 AM)

So relieved that I picked up most of my NTSC GameCube collection in 2010/11 before prices on the secondary market went bezerk...

@  unluckiness : (12 September 2019 - 12:54 AM)

I have fond memories of it since it was the last console Mario Kart that didn't have the ridiculous pre-race cart assembly

@  TM2-Megatron : (11 September 2019 - 10:26 PM)

@  unluckiness : (11 September 2019 - 09:24 AM)

Double Dash is great. Just watch out for blue shells

@  Nevermore : (11 September 2019 - 03:20 AM)

@  TM2-Megatron : (10 September 2019 - 11:10 PM)

If you owe, you're expected to actually pay it at the time you file, before they even process your return

@  TM2-Megatron : (10 September 2019 - 11:10 PM)

If you file electronically, I find you usually get your refund within a couple weeks

@  Nevermore : (10 September 2019 - 06:22 PM)

Well, lucky it took less than two months for me. For a little over 200 Euros.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 September 2019 - 06:11 PM)

Pretty much, yeah. Canada revenue will be all up your ass if you earn less than 200K and owe tax, but your refund is basically "duke nukem forever".

Let's see, a few more:

 

Mighty No 9 is a perfectly fine game.

 

Okami is pretty, but a hot mess gameplay wise. It's also not 'Zelda on PS2' I wish people would stop saying that.

 

Resident Evil is better as an action/horror game then flat out horror.

 

The stamina system of Dark Souls and similar games is crap and not only needs to be retired, but shouldn't have ever been used in the first place.

 

MegaMan X7 is the best in the se- HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

 

Sorry sorry, couldn't say that last one with a straight face, Ignore that one.

I hated most of the characters in Xenoblade Chronicles 2, especially the villains who tried to shoehorn in some sympathy right at the end. I ended up skipping most of the backstory cutscenes after a while.
Also Vandham.

Spoiler

Also the entire game was basically "win easily in the actual fight, lose in the following cutscene". Every damn time.

I actually don't hate Ashley. Sure her xenophobia was hardly endearing and she was a petulant ass for the first part of the third game. Butshe does come around, she does drunk cute and her commitment to her family is commendable. I certainly have no desire to kill her off. And at least she's not a dull as that boring twit...Kaden...Kaiden...starts with a 'K'.

I also like Miranda. Sure she's a stuck up Cerberus cheerleader boshtet...but she also goes to great lengths to protect her sister and she did bring down her fathe5 and planted the homing beacon that lead Sheperd to The Illusive Mans hideout. Basically, if not for her, Shep never would've been able to takt out Cerberus and find the Catalyst.

I never really cared for Mario 64.

While interesting, the Metroid Prime series are not as fun as the 2D Metroids.

As much as I enjoy the DLC and updates, Final Fantasy XV was just fine in its Vanilla form.

Final Fantasy XIII was actually fun...in some places.

But it definitely did not need sequels.

I kinda like microtransactions.

Yeah, I kinda agree.

 

If that and DLC keeps inflation from bringing up the prices of games, I am fine with it, so long as they are not game breaking to be without.

 

Also, I cannot play a FPS without the vertical controls being inverted.

I actually kinda agree with this. The gameplay was actually pretty good (aside from the authorization function. The story was just a big stinking pile of hot garbage. Unfortunately, they made separating the story from the game nearly impossible.

Well no the game would have contrived some other way, even if you did have the option of shoving her out an airlock half way through Mass Effect 2.

 

That being said, I would probably have been better disposed towards her if not for the camera mounted a foot behind her backside that the game insisted on switching to whenever she was talking.

While I understand where you're coming from with that, I think that's more the developers being pervs than any character flaw with Miranda. So I'm not sure I can hold it against her.

Skyrim sucked.

 

Elders Scrolls IV: Oblivion is when the franchise peaked, I feel.

 

Owned Skyrim since Day One, have yet to finish the main quest, any DLC, or even the Thieves Guild. Morrowind is a very lackluster experience now-a-days (Especially if you use a mod that modernizes the draw distance and realize how tiny it is).

 

Oblivion remains one of only two games I've ever 100% completed. I really ought to go back now that it's been a decade.
