Nice joke but I'm not the type to just go on about how great I am mainly because I have the attitude that I should be doing better. It's kind of like self-loathing except I love life and wouldn't ever change a thing about everything that has led up to who I am at this instant. It's paradoxial, I know but that's how it is. (same for many other facets of who I am) Also as I said I think award shows are dumb.


So you wouldn't theoretically say all that in a super-cool, ultra-long post? I think your long posts are awesome, that's why I made the joke.

Kenzo is right though, Mr_eX has surely done the most for our little community (of which I participate in almost none of it. rock on!), so he would have to win any such award.

I think it's funny Ryan Scott is talking about my brain and how it doesn't need 3D. It's not about what I need but it's about what a want. Cuz I want youuuuu...

Pretty good episode by the way.

Never seen Tron but when Carlos was talking about someone related to the field of early hobbyist computers is he talking about Alan Kay?

Here's a bit of trivia about the abacus. In 1946 a Japanese clerk named Matsuzake had a competition with a U.S. soldier named Tom Wood to see if the abacus or an electro-mechanical desk calculator could calculate faster. Matsuzake's abacus won. (see page 7 and 8 of this Google books link)

However by the 1980s it would be highly highly unlikely an abacus would win over an electronic calculator.

Also it was Amped 3 that was one of the Xbox 360 launch titles. Amped 1 and Amped 2 for the Xbox where more sim heavy and did not have a story. Amped 3 was a more arcade like crazy title that had an equally manaical story. Amped 3 is my favourite of the bunch though just because of how insane and ridiculous it was especially the cut scenes. However Amped 1 and 2 are pretty decent snowboarding games if you are looking for a more realistic snowboarding game.

The best part about all the different crazy cutscenes was how they all were produced in different styles.

From cutouts


to generic action anime parody. Complete with ironic racist voiceover.


To super hero comic books



That game truely felt like the developers knew they were kind of fucked and said "Fuck it! We're going to make what we want and it's going to be awesome!"

Oh and I almost forgot big musical finale? Fucking yes!



Edit: The VGAs and most big award shows in pop culture are dumb. [Oscars, Grammys, Emmys, etc.] I don't understand why anyone would watch them.
