My mother sometime's picks up her friend's kid from preschool and it's then my job to play Mario Kart for a an hour or so until her mom arrives. Usually just the same two levels over and over. And I feel awful the whole time because she's trying really hard to race and gets up to 7th place or so and then drives off a cliff and falls back to 12th. And if I get anything less than 1st she gets upset that I'm trying to let her not feel bad. So here I am racing against a little girl, lapping her, and if I even slow down to lessen the distance between us she starts to cry.
Today, after an hour of that, I suggested we try Wii Sports Tennis. Much better. Do you know how easy it is to fake "Oh no! I swung just a second short!" It's a lot easier to make it a tie game or something more exciting for her. So lesson learned. From now on, only play games I can fake trying at.

I originally thought Lamarr the Headcrab was named after Hedley Lamarr from Blazing Saddles.

Which would, of course, outrage that character.

I think I just figured out that Earthbound's town of Twoson may in fact be an oblique reference to Tuscon, Arizona, in much the same way that the unreleased version of Mother for the NES had town names like Spookane and Ellay.

Can't think of any other city names the rest line up with, though.

I bet they started with "Twoson", then built the counting theme off of it (Onette, Twoson, Threed, Fourside).

Also, Eagleland

While I was in high school, a buddy and I played 250 versus matches on the snes version ok MK2 to get the pong mini game.  It took 2-4 hours and was not in the game.

The Steam release of Dead Space created a folder on my computer in which to place a file called joypad_example.txt, and the folder is located at C:\Users\*my name*\Documents\Electrontic Arts\Dead Space

It's not a crash bug or anything, it's just fucking stupid.

You know, I've always liked Lulu from FFX, but I don't think I've ever really taken a serious look at her design.


It's been over ten years, and only just now has it really and truly occurred to me: that is a shitload of useless belts. God damn.

Man, it would take HOURS to take that off.  I thought Victorian undergarments were inconvenient.
