    So, the article is doing well..

      Watching a streamer play right now. Announcer sounds stupid.

    • Prof. Bananas Goldsteinberg

      What’s with everybody and announcers lately? :p

    • P_Punk

      He sounds friggin stupid though!!!

    • Prof. Bananas Goldsteinberg

      Wait, the in-game announcer or is somebody commentating?

    • P_Punk

      in game announcer.

    • Hongo

      I need to install Halo 1 on my new laptop.

    • Prof. Bananas Goldsteinberg

      Did it come with it or something?

    • Hongo

      In middle school I traded some Pokémon cards with a buddy and he gave me Halo.

      And I’ve managed to hang onto it all these years.

    • dracosummoner

      That’s a deal!

    • Hongo

      Considering the cards were worthless and even more worthless now, it was! Almost feel bad for gaining.

    • dracosummoner

      That reminds me of when I got the Final Fantasy VII strategy guide (original owner, I think, pretty much did everything there was to do in that game) for ~one~ of my three Lunchables pizzas one day.

      ‘Twas the life. I brought my lunch from home, and for most of my schooling I rode with a parent and didn’t take the bus. Good times!

    • Hongo

      It’s called doing business and knowing the business that’s dealt.

      The barter system is a thing of wonder. I once traded a copy of Banjo-Kazooie for a holographic Charizard.

      Not the best deal in retrospect.

    • dracosummoner

      I simply borrowed my friend’s copy of Banjo-Kazooie (N64) and then bought Tooie on XBLA with reward credits earned from using Bing.

    • Prof. Bananas Goldsteinberg

      Young me would have been so conflicted about that offer.

  • Hongo

    Company in Japan is offering marriage certificates and packages for those interested in a 2D waifu.

    That’s just pathetically sad. Fucking. Sad. At least try to get a woman. Or even go gay if that’s not in the cards. Just get something with a heartbeat.

    Waifu comes in two flavors. You can also set your price with package options.

    • P_Punk

      Yeah its pretty sad, but gotta let people do what people want to do. Would you want someone who’s interested in fake people to marry someone alive?

    • Hongo

      Probably not because he would be awkward as hell.

      That weird kid in the back of the classroom we all knew who muttered about anarchy is sane and cool compared to him.

    • P_Punk

      DEATH TO SOCIETY!!!!….but dat assss

    • Hongo

      Teenage angst and ICP.

    • dracosummoner

      Completely honest question, how do people with 2D/otherwise imaginary ‘spouses’ (not the first time I’ve heard of this happening) actually deal with their consummation desires?

  • charanb

    hunters can use environmental clues to find the monsters in Evolve such as a group of birds flying away, sounds awesome but what’s the point when an icon appears to say where the monster was anyway.

    i’d rather use my own perceptive skills to you know…’hunt’

    • P_Punk

      Is there an icon? I thought you did have to use visual cues and tracking to see the monster?

    • charanb

      well that’s what happens but when the monster alerts the birds then an icon (a massive one at that) appears at the place it occured

    • P_Punk

      oh, there really should only be an alert that something moved, not an icon like you described.

    • charanb

      someone else put it perfectly, when something in the environment happens then the only alert should be a comment by the player’s character IF it occurred in the point of view

    • P_Punk

      Well I’m sure a skilled hunter can hear things moving around them

  • charanb

    Walking Dead, Wolf Among Us, Tales from the Borderlands, Game of Thrones and now Minecraft

    just how big is Telltale Games anyway?

    • KingKellogg The Waffle Haggler

      They must be busy, or HUGE.

    • GUN®

      I dunno, they make games in bite sized chunks and, I’m making an assumption here, their games don’t vary much in the gameplay department.
