  1. I miss Bioware from around ten years ago. :U

  2. Playing Dragon Age Origins again for the first time in years and am falling in love with it again ❤️

  3. Been researching getting a new computer and now my Youtube reccomends are filled with rather smarmy looking "PCGAMINGMASTAHRACE" videos. Like...Youtube? Youtube, bro. Youtube. Tube of You. Stawp.

      When I was researching a new PC last year I watched a ton of Linus Tech Tips YT vids, but I had to force myself to click em sometimes because the thumbnails are all obnoxious af

    3. Speederino

      Speederino

      Yeah that’s definitely one of the channels I’ve come across. It’s not that the videos can’t be helpful but like you said, obnoxious-ass thumbnails.

  4. La la la gonna take a break from work to browse the internet la la la- oh.

    Oh. Um...

    La la la gonna go back to work now la la la

  5. Welp, I can’t speak for everyone but Wonder Woman 84 was pretty damn disappointing. Legit one of the biggest dips in quality I’ve ever seen with a sequel. Even Spider-Man 3 had more for me to like than this did 😕

    1. Speederino

      Speederino

      I don’t really feel like going all super analytical here, but to give a quick overview on why I didn’t like it:

      Spoiler

      - Really stupid plot involving wishes. Very lazy, uninspired, and cliche.

      - Both the lasso and Diana herself keep getting new abilities/powers out of fucking nowhere.

      - There is no reason for this to take place in 1984 other than a couple jabs at the fashion.

      - Bad pacing/incredibly boring for a large portion of the movie.

      - The way Steve Trevor is brought back makes zero sense and hurts my head the more I try to think about it

      It's not the worst thing I've ever seen by a long shot but it isn't good either. Just a flat out mess from beginning to end. A major disappointment as the first is still, far and away, my favorite DCU movie. I honestly don't know what happened here. It's like they wanted a few key moments over everything else but barely put in the work to make them good. All this without even going into the more controversial and political mines it needlessly stumbled over.

      Though, I think what is really pissing me off are the folks out there trying to defend it with the hot take of "It's a comic book movie, what did you expect? I think ya'll just haven't seen one in a while." Like, we go one year without an MCU film or anything and people are right back to this mindset? Seriously?

  6. I think the best way to ring out 2020 is to let out a giant, wet fart precisely before the clock strikes midnight. Then the fart stays behind in 2020 but 2021 still stinks of it a little.

  7. I just realized The Fellowship of the Ring movie will be fucking 20 years old next year.

    1. Your Vest Friend

      Your Vest Friend

      So will the first Harry Potter film.

  8. That Mandolorian finale holy SHITBALLS

      I can't believe Darth Vader is Luke Skywalker's father!

      Amazing isn't it? You can really tell if you watch carefully.

  9. I haven't really played a Sims game in like ten years. I know Sims 4 wasn't well recieved at launch, is it any better now?

    1. Tornado

      Tornado

      It's got more stuff (a lot even for free) so it's not as hopelessly lacking in content compared to all the prior base games as it was at launch, but the actual gameplay is still the same "same base character interactions with different animations playing over them" as it was since launch.

  10. 3D Pinball Space Cadet guy for Smash, pls.

  11. Ya know, next year is Zelda’s 35th anniversary. After Nintendo went all out for Mario’s this year, is it wrong my hopes are a tad high?

    Surely 2021 is the year we at least see Switch ports of Wind Waker and Twilight Princess HD, right? Right????

    1. pppp

      pppp

      Yeah, a limited release till early 2022.

    2. Wraith

      Wraith

      Hoping for some kind of Skyward Sword release but I'm not expecting much.

  12. My 3DS keeps having sound issues even though I've sent it off for repairs twice. I'm thinking I should just get a new one but now *actually new* ones are super expensive since they're discontinued. Like, twice the price of the damn Switch in a lot of cases. 😕

    I dunno for some reason I just don't like the idea of getting a pre-owned 3DS, but it's either that or dropping like $500.

    1. Speederino

      Speederino

      What really sucks is that I've still got a perfectly good 3DS XL in my closet, but you can't transfer data from a New 3DS model to an older one. And I have a fuckton of digital games, so...

  13. I say it again: yes, please.

    1. Speederino

      Speederino

      I had a few small doubts from the early trailers, but so far everything about this looks *perfect*.

    2. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      For off-of-the-wall statement spewing toons, they sure made a few lucky guesses (1:26, 1:32).

      Also the Black Panther ref both stings and brings great pleasure.

      ^ Why couldn't it have been the wacky time-traveling cop car, instead?

    4. Speederino

      Speederino

      Ohhhhhhhhh god I just got the "Iron Man" joke at 1:51. That took me a bit.

      "The writers are writing this in 2018. So what happened the last two years?"

      If this is true, then THEIR PREDICTION WASN'T THAT FAR OFF . . .

  14. Yes, please.

    1. The Tenth Doctor

      The Tenth Doctor

      RIP Slappy Squirrel, they really do seem to have axed the old cast.

      Ah well, still love it.

    2. Speederino

      Speederino

      Slappy and Chicken Boo. Just give them roles at some point, I can honestly do without the rest. But come on, imagine Chicken Boo posing as Trump. We *need* that!

    3. PC the Hedgehog

      PC the Hedgehog

      I honestly thought they'd omit the third verse entirely and just call it good, but they really went all-out. Honestly, I'm surprised at how much they retained from the original intro, both lyrics and animation-wise. And the updated lyrics are great.

    4. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      Fuck, that got a few good chuckles out of me. Good stuff, excited to start watching.

  15. https://twitter.com/TiVo?s=20

    So I just found out Tivo still exists and has a Twitter, but MAN this is weird. Supposedly it has 25k followers, but look through their tweets. They're all ghost towns that are lucky to get 10 likes and a couple of comments. So who are these 25k people? 

    1. Speederino

      Speederino

      Also sorry I don’t know wtf happened to the formatting here

    2. Your Vest Friend

      Your Vest Friend

      Given their age, probably a lot of accounts that aren't used any more.

  16. Is it just me or is nobody talking about the Miles Morales game? When the first one came out it dominated social media for like two weeks but I'm hardly hearing a peep this time around.

    1. Polkadi~☆

      Polkadi~☆

      Not everyone has a PS5. Even though we can get it on PS4 too.

    2. Speederino

      Speederino

      That's just it though, how many people are actually holding out for the PS5 version?

    3. Rabid-Coot

      Rabid-Coot

      More things came out next to it and its probably less impressive the second time around

    4. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      I know I’m waiting on a 5 for this one.

      But real talk, that’s sort of been the case for a lot of games this year. Outside of Animal Crossing and LoU2, not too many AAAs were really talked about at length this year. It’s really been more random choices like Among Us that received most of the attention.

      Though for MM, yeah I really do think that there are a fair bit of people who are just holding off till they can get a PS5 to enjoy it.

    5. Crow the BOOLET

      Crow the BOOLET

      I like to think that everyone is playing it right now to talk about it

  17. Crash 4 is great to simply play through but man I just don't know if I care about getting 100% this time. Maybe if I take my time with it.

    1. Wraith

      Wraith

      I grind like, a level or two per day and it's not that bad at that pace. Still wish the game wasn't like this though.

    2. Jango

      Jango

      It's really overwhelming, definitely. But my main problem with 100%-ing the game isn't the difficulty per se, as I found it to be just right and not that "torture porn" I see people bringing up in some places, but the fucking loading screens. That kills it to me. At least I'm seeing that the PS5 and Series X load the level in 6 seconds, but still... It could load once and every restart should be instantaneous, like when you're doing time trials.

      What I hope for the future is more levels like Cortex Castle (actually hard, but delicious to master) and less repeating the same levels with filters and shit, because my God, I can't wait for the same level to load 10 times. Also, I really dislike some of those filters, especially the one in the snow world.

    3. Speederino

      Speederino

      I do think some sections a bit too hard for their own good, especially when you factor in the 3 life gems and perfect relics. But what would go a long way is if they didn’t count any lives lost before the first checkpoint *like the old games did*. Removing that just forces the player to reload constantly and it suuuuuucks.

    4. Kuzu

      Kuzu

      It says something when I can only do one or two levels per session. Game is fucking rough man. 

  18. I just realized it's Friday the 13th. This hasn't been a good day (or week) at all so no wonder :U

  19. FUCK YES FREAKAZOID IS RETURNIIIIiiiiing in an episode of Teen Titans Go. Hm. Well...ok. I guess it makes sense, honestly.

    1. Teoskaven
    2. Plumbers_Helper

      Plumbers_Helper

      Freakazoid is one of my favorite shows of all time so I'm looking forward to it even though I don't care for Teen Titans Go. So happy to hear Paul Rugg helped write the script.

  20. I have a sudden, strong craving for peanut butter. But I am at work, and have no access to peanut butter. I can't even snag a Reeses from the vending machine because I don't have change.

    This fucking sucks.

  21. I like Crash 4 a lot but man they really did go too far in some places. And I'm not just talking about the collectables, there are some truly absurd difficulty spikes here and there.

  22. To the person at work who keeps emailing everyone these stupid Facebook Thanksgiving images with Hallmark quotes on them:

     

  23. Well, at least one good thing came out of 2020.

  24. Really don't like how N. Sane Crash 3 requires you to get the gold relic on Future Tense for the final gem, at least on the Switch version. This is for machochists, not people just looking to get all the gems. At least you can still see the true ending without it.

    1. Speederino

      Speederino

      Seriously, this sucks ass. Even if I manage to grab all three Aku Akus and get through most of it in a decent time, that last section is absolutely dreadful. I can't help but feel there's a lot of luck involved.

  25. I’m at Rings of Power in Crash 3, the level that, as a kid, I just could *not* get the gold relic for. I tried and tried and tried, and eventually just gave up. So I never got to see Crash 3’s true ending. Well here we are, 20 years later. LET’S DO THI- I got it on the second try. What the fuck, child me?

    Did I...did I not know you could boost through the rings by barrel rolling? But if not, then how did I get the level gem? I...huh?

    1. Harkofthewaa

      Harkofthewaa

      The rings give you enough boost on their own to get you the gem. The thing is that, at least in the original the only hing you got to barrel roll into the rings was that the first one has the tornado symbol on it.

    2. Speederino

      Speederino

      N Sane has that too, but I didn't really understand what it was telling me right away. I kinda figured it out through sheer luck.
