    I really like John DiMaggio’s voice, but it’s so distracting hearing him as random thugs in Arkham Asylum. Distinctive voices like that just don’t blend well into the background; all I can hear is Bender in the body of a thug.

  • Hongo

    Nostalgia called. It made me find OP’s or it threatened to do bad things to those I love.

    • Hongo

      I also aspire to be Weeaboo Nacho Supreme King like Punk.

    • Hongo

      Removed one of them. Cheese graters to your eardrums would sound better.

    • Leon Evelake

      Didn’t much like samurai deeper kyo…. but I absolutely love it’s opening. It’s on one of my current car cds even

    • Hongo

      Yeah, the series was mostly meh, but they got the opening right.

  • Ryuuga Hideki

    I need to stop telling myself I’ll buy games when they hit a certain price and instead need to set a timeframe. Just last week I was saying I’d wait to buy Bloodborne until it hit about $30 so what do you think happens this week? Yup, $32 with the Gamer’s Club Unlocked discount at Best Buy.

    Must… Keep… Resisting…

    • http://iadagraca.com/ BasedWolf

      I don’t do that i just end up having spare money and i happen to see a game i want in that price range.

      if i don’t get it at launch i get it whenever.

    “DO YOU USE PUBLIC WI-FI? YOU MAY BE PUTTING YOUR PERSONAL DATA AT RISK.”

    No shit, NBC.

    • Ryuuga Hideki

      I need to remind myself on nearly a daily basis that most people don’t quite even have a basic understanding of how their electronic devices operate. They know how to use them, sure, but how they actually function? Fuhgeddaboudit.

    • Hongo

      That and the masses are genuinely pretty stupid.

    Olive Garden’s breadsticks vs. Red Lobster’s biscuits.

    Go!

    I vote for the biscuits; I’ve never had a breadstick from any OG that wasn’t dried out and tough, like it was old and reheated in a microwave. Plus they never seem to put more than a drop of garlic or butter on them so it’s just dry, tasteless bread.

    • Raso719

      Biscuit. Aside from the fact that it’s a biscuit it’s also not being served at the Olive Garden so I don’t have to worry about the menu angering my Italian side every time I see a stupid menu item like “Bologna Alfredo” or “Hatsa Spicy Meata Bol”.

    • Hongo

      Biscuits.

      The best bread sticks come from Fazolis.

    • Ryuuga Hideki

      I’ve never been to one, but I’ll see if there’s one near me.

    • http://xblig.co/ Mr. Domino

      Bread sticks for me. They’re always soft and buttery. It’s really the reason I even bother going since there’s like two things on the menu I’d eat.

    You know they make a lot of fuss about diversity and having homosexuality in games but localization teams LOVE removing that stuff from Japanese games. Been that way for decades.

    • Raso719

      Many localization teams also love sterilizing any cultural nuance from anime. 4KIDS TV is an especially bad offender. Like kids can just accept a magical world where yellow rats shoot lighting at a 3 headed bird monster but OH NO! The kids won’t understand dumplings! Call them donuts, they’re too stupid to figure it out! No, it’s not Space Battleship Yamato it’s the Argo because fuck Japan but ancient Greece is fine because lol white people amirte?

      I’ve also found that anime doesn’t have this hesitation of putting female characters into roles that we’re just now starting to see them in the west. Gundam had female pilots since Gundam. Hell, you had female pilots in numerous robot anime well before Gundam was a twinkling in Tomino’s eye. And while there’s numerous examples of over sexualized characters in Anime (lord knows likely well more than half, thank you very much moe trash trend) there is also no short list of strong female leads. I mean for Christ sake when Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind first came state side they all but gutted Nausicaa from the movie and turned her into this damsel in distress. Miyazaki was so pissed he mailed a samurai sword to the head of Disney with the words “No cuts” etched in the blade. That’s like some God Father shit, right there. “He’s send’n you a message. He’s say’n Mickey Mouse lost his head.”

      By and large, though, the woes in western media are cause by western media’s share holders and executives who refuse to see that the hunger for new characters and story lines is there then go and use focus testing groups filled with emotionally bankrupt dudebros or overly sheltered/sensitive religious types as a bench mark as to whether or not an idea is any good.

      And that’s why I haven’t had cable TV in over 10 years.

      This is Yohko. She’s in COLLEGE.

      She just has a sailor fetish.

      Also, remember: COLLEGE. Not HIGH SCHOOL boobs.

    Kids show ending………..

    • http://iadagraca.com/ BasedWolf

      Damn that is grim.

    • Hongo

      That will put a dent in your day.

  • Aaron Wilkins

    Just ordered my PC Cpu. Lack of money sucks but still getting the parts at least. At this point all I need now to begin making my first gaming PC is a monitor, OS, and SSD.

    • KingKellogg The Waffle Haggler

      Ohhh Nice!

    • Ryuuga Hideki

      I know SSD’s are a lot faster, but I’m still happy with my (almost full) 7200 RPM 2TB HDD. Haven’t really seen any areas where having that extra speed would make a big difference.

      What other parts do you have? If you’re not looking to push past 1080p then you can find some pretty good deals on decent sized monitors; my GTX 660 has handled everything I’ve tried on 1080p like a champ on high-max settings, even games it “shouldn’t” run well like Tomb Raider and Shadow of Mordor. I’d rather have that than pushing past the 1080p barrier, but maybe that’s just me. Plus of course the cost of the monitors goes up drastically…

    • http://iadagraca.com/ BasedWolf

      My SSD is useful for boot and photoshop loading, not much else. I just keep my work programs on there cause it helps load up speed.

      I’d use it for games but it’s only a 64GB

    • Ryuuga Hideki

      Even on a regular hard drive like mine Windows 8.1 boots up ridiculously fast, I can’t even imagine going to an SSD. That must be near-instantaneous.

    • http://iadagraca.com/ BasedWolf

      It basically is XD

      You know that loopy thing at boot? Loops once, sometimes with a half. Then boom login screen.

      I know it’d be better if i had a little bit of a nicer computer.

      EDIT: some times if i hit my power button first and monitor second my computer is at the login screen before the monitor turns on.

  • http://iadagraca.com/ BasedWolf

    So I’m watching dare devil.

    “Moves mouse over button, hits enter on keyboard to select it”

    WHY!

    • http://iadagraca.com/ BasedWolf

      On a side note from the episode that just ended.

      *Villain describes vital flaw in what he just did in bluff.

      Pays for it cause he underestimated people.*

      I don’t even think I would have fell for that cause I’ve held a gun before.

    • KingKellogg The Waffle Haggler

      Thats why we need to have basic gun safety for people.

    • Ryuuga Hideki

      While I knew he was bluffing, that was still a surprising outcome for that episode. Heck, for the show in general; I honestly didn’t expect that character to die.

      Outside of a couple of Wilson Fisk’s killings being a bit too brutal for my taste (being vague in case anyone is avoiding spoilers, that car scene had me flinching and looking away, and how the hammer scene went down and was resolved with her help was also a bit too gruesome for me) I loved the show overall.

    • http://iadagraca.com/ BasedWolf

      yeah you pretty much liked fisk as a kind of tragic character until he was viciously killing people.

      and i didn’t expect that dude to die either, low and behold i respected him too.

      Honestly my favorite thing about the show is that it tried to make all the villains likable except when they were being bad.

    • Ryuuga Hideki

      Everyone was multi-faceted like that, it was one of the best things about the show. I really did feel for Fisk, especially showing the way his dad was and how genuine he seemed in wanting to make the city a better place… and then he went and did that.

      *shudders*

    • Leon Evelake

      I don’t know.. but I do that sometimes

    • Hongo

      That’s like when TV shows have characters playing game systems and they are spazing out with the coontroller and there’s 8-bit sound effects.
