  1. You aren't a true Star Wars fan unless you can name all 6 million forms of communication that C-3PO is fluent in.

  2. Oh good, you can finally watch Simpsons in 4:3 on Disney +. I've been holding off on watching all that much of it until now.

  3. Everyone just streams their music nowadays and yet here I am with a fucking iPod like it's 2007. I dunno I just like having a dedicated music device for my car ok sue me. SUE ME!!!

      You and me both man. Don't want my phone's storage taken up by music tracks and can't be bothered with spotify, so I keep the MP3.

      I don't have unlimited data, so if I'm not somewhere with Wifi, streaming ain't an option. It's much more satisfying to own my music anyway, though I feel like I'm one of the few people in the world who still buys music.

    3. Speederino


      Same. And I just bought music off of iTunes.


      It's just that since I primarily use my iPod, iTunes is still automatically the most convenient storefront for me since I don't have to deal with downloading and importing MP3's into it. Even if the software itself is...well, iTunes.

      I'm fucking annoyed by Google taking away downloadable purchases. Is there any word about Apple doing the same with iTunes? Because I might have to start buying from there.

    5. Speederino


      I'm kinda confused by that, actually. Yes, iTunes is basically being replaced by Apple Music...but not on Windows, I think? For now? And I think you'll still be able to purchase music on Apple Music but don't quote me on it.

  4. Has there ever been a person who was watching a Youtube video, had it interrupted by a five minute long ad, and thought “aw yeah I better not hit that skip ad button” ?

    1. Ryannumber1gamer


      "Look, I know you're gonna skip that ad, but-" 


    2. KHCast


      Whenever a YouTuber starts talking about a sponsor, or one of those long ads pop up, I use that to grab a drink, go to the bathroom, etc. and if they’re still going when I get back, I just skip the rest to get back to the content

      Said lucky person wouldn't want to anyway, as said five minute ad was an exclusive look at the long awaited Bubsy and Elder Scrolls. He was the only person who ever saw it, and it will not be shown ever again.

    4. Plumbers_Helper


      Not five minutes long, but this is the only Youtube ad me and my niece would never skip:

    Why do the little space pirate ships in Metroid Zero Mission look like sperm, Reggie?



  6. Nintendo, stop drip-feeding us new games on the Switch NES/SNES services. Give us what we want already: get Bubsy and Bubsy 2 on SNES and then you won't have to release a single other game on these platforms. You'll be done. We get the games we want, you don't have to keep worrying about it. Everybody wins.

  7. Alright, just played through Metroid Prime 1. Now to sit back and let the credits pla-

    *The Game Disc could not be read. Refer to the Wii Operations Manual for details*



    But this is the digital version on Wii U


    1. Speederino


      Well at least this didn't happen just before I delivered the final blow to Prime or some shit, I guess. Still stings a little though.

      Digital versions can get disc errors?


    4. KHCast


      Well that’s definitely a Nintendo move 

    5. Speederino


      Apparently its got something to do with the USB drive I have the game installed on (or the port I have it plugged into? Unclear). I mean I got through the entire game just fine with zilch issues until now so I'm just gonna write this off as a silly little fluke until it happens again.

    6. Ryannumber1gamer


      @Blue Wisp

      It's rare, but it can happen. I'm not an expert in it, but disc errors can be caused by corrupted data/data not being read correctly. 

      Ratchet Deadlocked HD has a similar problem where there's a game-breaking bug where the game can randomly corrupt your save data in a way that is not fixable. The reason for it is the save data is read as non-corrupt (It gives a random planet name, followed by DOESN'T WERK). 

      Then, it ends up replicating a disc read error that was present on ALL PS2 era Ratchet games where the game infinitely loads, and never lands on a planet. In the PS2 case, it's due to the data being corrupted/not read correctly, due to the scratched disc, while on the HD remaster, it's because the game has corrupted it's data and seemingly doesn't know where to place Ratchet, as in the corrupted data's mind - Ratchet should be setting foot on two different planets at two entirely different times.

      Since the Wii wasn't designed for digital versions, it's possible that all "data corruption" errors are viewed as "Disc could not be read", because that's just what it thinks. Digital downloads weren't a thing then, and if the data isn't readable, it can't be due to corrupted data because it "wasn't downloaded". Hence why it ends up thinking it's a scratched disc instead, because a scratched disc not being read correctly is the only explanation for why the data would be corrupted.

      That makes a lot of sense. 

      I was thinking that maybe he had a disk already in the Wii U while he was playing and the game somehow did a fucky wucky and thought that the disk was Metroid Prime and the console got confused. 

  8. I'm using tilt controls!

  9. I've been wandering down the internet rabbithole and found an old Banjo-Kazooie fangame I played as a kid. It took three hours for me to download on ye olde dial-up.

    1. Sean


      Shit, I remember these games. I used to post on Banjo-Tooie Hive and followed development of Banjo fangames, including a minigame-based one called Banjo Fair by the site's owner, Mike. Really brings me back, and I'm glad that someone archived these.

  10. How does K.K. play the guitar without real fingers

      how do you play a guitar WITH fingers

  11. Oh good, the speakers on my 3DS stopped working. Again. Probably gonna have to send it in for repairs. Again. Almost tempted to just look for a refurbished one since the last repair cost me a hundred smackers anyways.

    1. Speederino


      And no it is no longer covered by a warranty. The last repair was like a year and a half ago and the warranty you get after a repair is only good for a few months.

  12. The first Red Dead Redemption is now officially 10 years old and if you'll excuse me, I'm gonna go for a long walk and think about where in the fuck all that time actually went.

    1. Speederino


      Aside: for a decade old game RDR1 still looks fucking amazing in a lot of areas. This is from my last playthrough a couple years ago.


  13. Metroid 2: Samus Commits Genocide

  14. You ever play a huge long game, get towards the end, lapse, come back like eight months later, don't really remember what you were doing, and get torn between sucking it up and finishing things or just starting over? >_>

  15. I sure hope I don't get murdered today.

    1. Sean


      Let's not set ourselves up for disappointment now.

  16. Crossover between Luigi’s Mansion and Resident Evil, pls.

    1. Perkilator


      Maybe if Jill was in Smash Ultimate, we’d get a sort-of redo of Simon’s trailer in the Spencer Mansion with Resi monsters.

  17. *siiiiiigh* Can’t even play Streets of Rage 4’s online without running into asshats, apparently. This is why I tend to not bother with online multiplayer :U

    1. KHCast


      What system are you playing on? I’ve been playing PS4 and it’s been pretty fine in terms of players.

  18. I love how the legacy characters in SoR4 aren’t just palette swaps. Like I was actually slightly disappointed when I found out the nifty dodge from SoR3 wasn’t returning for this game. But now I’ve started unlocking the SoR3 characters and lo and behold, lookie what I can do again.

    1. Tarnish


      Too bad the character drops the weapon they're holding when you do the dodge roll.

  19. If there’s one thing I’m unsure of in Streets 4, it’s how unforgiving the combo system is. It doesn’t matter if you’ve managed to get up to 70, one hit and you don’t get a single point for it. I understand not getting the full combo points, but couldn’t there at least be a smaller, fixed bonus for getting that high? Just as a consolation prize.

    1. Speederino


      Also, having everyone share the same combo counter in multiplayer. At first I thought that was pretty neat. In practice, it just means you’re almost never getting that bonus >_>

  20. I just finished playing the Resident Evil remake for the very first time (both characters). This was my first real experience with Resident Evil in general aside from brief snippets of this and 4 way back on the Gamecube, and I'm definitely thirsty for more. But...oof, I have so many options available that I'm not sure what to look at next.

    1. Speederino


      Option 1: I played this on Switch via the Origins Collection, which also has RE0. That seems like a logical next step since I already own it, but I've heard mixed things and get the impression that might be best saved for after I play the other classic-style RE games.

      Option 2: The recent RE2 and RE3 remakes. My only hang-up is that I'd kinda like to play the originals first so I can appreciate these that much more. Which brings me to...

      Option 3: The PS1 games, including the first. I'm definitely curious to experience *that* in all of its 1996 ham and cheese glory.

    2. Tornado


      Resident Evil Zero is 30% a pretty good continuation of the stuff they did in REmake and 70% garbage. Play the original versions of Resi 2 and Resi 3 first before you try Zero, because if you don't like those you absolutely will hate Zero; but if you really like those (and they are both better games regardless) you may like Zero.




      As far as the remakes go, I'd say that Resi 2... kinda sorta maybe makes the original not so important? It doesn't do so to the extent that REmake overwrites the original version of Resident Evil, certainly. But REmake 2 definitely does stuff that is deliberately there to screw with you if you played the original, so the original Resident Evil 2 is still worth a shot even though it's clunkier than REmake. Threemake I'm not intimately familiar with, but the original Resident Evil 3 is worth playing definitely.

  21. I think Cherry is my favorite character to use in any Streets of Rage.

    1. Thigolf


      She was my first pick when picking up SoR4 and I didn't regret it one second, she's so fun-

      I like using her to jump on top and across enemies.

    3. KHCast


      Floyd is the one I’ve been mostly using, but sprite Axel and Adam are pretty fun too 

  22. SoR4 is fucking *delightful*. Easily one of the best feeling brawlers I’ve played in a long long long long looooooooong time. Definitely what I needed after an honestly crummy week.

    1. Speederino


      River City Girls was also great but there were a couple things with those mechanics that annoyed me. Streets is just a joy.

  23. Oh...joy. Someone at work just suddenly quit with zero warning and now it's just me and one other person in the already understaffed department. And now my workload just quadrupled. Great.

    1. Perkilator


      Sorry, man. Hopefully things can better for you.

      That's rough 😕 Hope it gets better.

  24. Why the fuck has Viewtiful Joe never gotten any kind of re-release? Capcom usually ports their games 20 times each (even the unpopular ones) but Viewtiful Joe is still completely locked to the Gamecube and PS2. 

    Normally I’d say legal shit due to Clover/Platinum except Capcom clearly still owns the rights to him since he gets a costume reference in Street Fighter V. So...come the fuck on already. >:U

      Capcom acts like Okami's the only game Clover has ever made.

  25. Hello it is I, Youtube Gamer Man. Did you know that Super Mario Bros. 2 is in fact a reskin of the Japanese game Doki Doki Panic, and that




    the real Super Mario Bros. 2 was later released in the west as Super Mario Bros. The Lost Levels??? I bet you didn't know that, so I'm glad I took the time to tell you this obscure piece of gaming trivia. This episode was brought to you by Manscape, because I truly have no shame. Stick around for four more minutes to watch me use it.

    1. Sean


      Wow I never knew that our SMB2 wasn't the real SMB2 all along. All these years I loved this game and now I learn it's a fake, can't believe I never knew how objectively wrong I was for loving a fakey fake-ass fake fake game that doesn't exist

    2. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry


      And the real SMB2 is just an expansion pak of SMB1.

    3. Cayenne


      I know that this fact has been memed to death, but Doki Doki Panic actually has pretty interesting origins. It's a shame that almost no one talks about the festival that inspired the game.
