GAF is even suggesting that Star Calibur be made. Don’t stop with just Darth Vader, Yoda, and Starkiller (check out those combos!) Let’s see the whole damn Jedi Order! We may even let you Force Choke us with microtransactions.
I hope this infatuation settles down soon, but somehow I doubt it. Until then, I anticipate quite a few more playin-’til-3-AM nights.
I remember reading some recent study suggesting that negative opinions of others had strong influence on the future opinions of people, but that the converse was not necessarily true. Now if this were a legitimate place for you to get factual information, I’d be obliged to footnote the previous statement, but since it’s not, we’re just gonna run with it and assume it’s true.
A perfect example of the negative/positive opinion correlation is the release of these new Golden Axe screen shots.
I loved this game back in the day. Tyris Flare was my character of choice, and I remember beating this game on a single quarter. I also remember the circumstances around it. I happened to be dating a girl… and her best friend at the time. Things were going fine until they both wanted to confront me (independently) at my local hangout, Grand Prix, which was an arcade/go-cart race track in Massachusetts. Girlfriend A found me first and said she wanted to talk, and I said sure… after I finish this game. I played the best Golden Axe of my life. Girlfriend A wasn’t able to stick around ’til the end, and said she’ll catch up with me later, leaving a few minutes before Girlfriend B showed up. Girlfriend B was witness to the final boss dying to the 6 fire potions I had saved up, beating the game in heroically frugal fashion.
Kotaku commentators loved these screenshots after a positive post about them. NeoGAF slammed the same shots after an initial negative post. I see both sides. Tyris has definitely aged well, and I love the new haircut, but this is the Next Gen™. I should be able to see if she adequately moisturizes and exfoliates after a hard day battling Death Adder.
Oh, GAF. You so silly sometimes.
A thread pops up a couple of days ago dedicated to video game T-shirts, so obviously my interest is peaked. After a few
clichecute Threadless designs, the thread degrades into hyper-geek mode as shirts with saying such as “There’s no place like 127.0.0.1″ and “I PINGed your mom and got 100% packet loss” show up.
Seemingly to get the thread back on track, someone posts a “pretty cool MGS2 shirt:”
This had me stumped for a second. I seemed to have missed the part where Snake went to the Bahamas, and all Raiden got was this lousy T-shirt. Spoiler tags let me off the hook. This is not a MGS2 shirt.
But now the question remains where is it from? The usual checking of the URL for image hosting yielded no clues. All I’m left with now is the image of a Masonic nightmare crashing through my 1983 four color CGA monitor. Our resident printing expert Sofie from Image Foundry was quick to notice this oversized print looks like a cut-n-sew job. I guess I will have to resurrect the two day old thread and in an act of utter and complete lameness ask, “Where is this from?”
