  1. Republicans have been bluffing for centuries about how they want to overthrow the government; this is the first time I’ve ever seen something akin to their threats happen.

  3. Why isn't every major entertainment product produced by semi-celebrity fans of the product? Because, no offense, that's one of the worst, most ignorant, and misguided business choices you could ever make. How many people on that list have professional positions as scriptwriters, coders, marketers, producers, etc. and are prepared to cooperate in the rigorous process of making a legitimate video game? A fraction are voice actors, another are writers for comics, and another are guys making extremely casual reviews behind their computer monitor. There's a good reason these guys aren't the voices behind the choices made for the games, and it's they aren't qualified for those positions. That's why they do what they do, and aren't game developers. Exceptions like Christian Whitehead are EXTREMELY rare and usually don't come along at all. Positions in the professional video game industry are an entire world away from starry-eyed geeks making elaborate fanworks which they have no restrictions and compromises to deal with. Also I couldn't help but laugh seeing Ken Penders being mentioned, who has the all the talent of a bowling shoe in the process of falling apart. And I have no words for Chris Chan.
  4. No way I'm voting for Trump or Biden. Green Party all the way

      Yeah, I couldn't vote for either of them myself.

  5. The absolutely abysmal acts of the police during these protests has made me feel an anger I haven't felt in quite a while. 

  6. Does anyone remember this book?

    A Bad Case of Stripes by [David Shannon]

    It scared the SHIT out of me as a kid. I still find it incredibly unsettling.

      I bet the average millenial Twitter user would take one look at the cover and be quick to think it's a "coming out" story. 

  7. Opinion (from a Jewish perspective): I think it’s pretty rude to call someone “a Jew”. There’s too many connotations to anti-Semitic sentiments with “Jew” for my liking. Some Jewish people don’t mind Jew but I’ve never liked it. 

  8. Lungfishes | PRIMITIVE FISHES

    Look at this lungfish. 

  9. Never expected to see you on here. Anyway, I hope you've had a pleasant time and I'm definitely a fan of your work, as I'm sure the vast majority of us are. 

  10. Get to Know the Rare and Furry Jaguarundi Wildcat - Catster

      I've been looking at a lot of cats lately. How are you?

      A little stressed because of the pandemic, but overall not too bad.

      I love animals. Have you checked out the genet? It's actually not a cat, but it kinda looks like one.

      Lots of the basal groups of carnivora resemble the genet form; they started off as arboreal animals. 

  11. Since all classes have switched to online, I'm really crossing my fingers all the fucking morons in the adjacent apartments who party everyday will go home. It would be nice to have a night without a bunch of ditsy girls screaming at the top of their lungs on the other side of my wall. 

  12. How is everyone in Sonicland doing? 

    1. Indigo Rush

      Indigo Rush

      The socio-economic stability of Mobius is in shambles and the Dingos have taken over the military industrial complex, Sonic and Tails are nowhere to be seen and Knuckles has destroyed the integrity of our military forces

      When did Penders start writing for the series @Indigo Rush

  13. I totally love it when someone puts their shit in the washing machine and just leaves, so now no one else can do anything until they fucking get back 

  14. There used to be an extremely obscure console called the Pixter which I used to play quite often as a small kid. There was this one game in particular where there were three sections; you would start in a car, the next in a boat, the last in a plane. I think it was math themed in some way. There was this extremely catchy music that played through the whole thing that I remember in a foggy sense. I don't know what the game was called and I have tried looking it up to absolutely no results.
  15. Mario Strikers is remembered by 4 whole people but man did it have some awesome artwork, particularly gritty for Mario standards;

      I loved Strikers on Wii, I want a new game in the series.

      I think I'm one of those 4 people. :eyes: I love the arcade-style gameplay of both Strikers games and this coming from someone that usually isn't interested in anything soccer-related.

  16. Also lately I've been thinking a lot about Super Paper Mario and it has a profoundly depressing story in my opinion. 

    1. Waveshocker Sigma

      Waveshocker Sigma

      Yeah but it's a damn good one.

    2. Wraith

      Wraith

      I think its hampered a bit by the fact that a lot of the most important things happen offscreen.

      Then should Sonic be able to at least try to have this sort of story?

  17. Confession: I've never beat SMB1 and the sole reason is that pit in 8-2 where you have to run over the one-space hole and jump. For some reason I can never get the controller to respond and jump at that spot and I always give up.

      I think it doesn't like someone taking photos of it.

      I tend to think that all birds look rather cross all the time.

  19. It's always funny when hardcore gamers start trying to spout how hardcore they are to a group who mostly plays games for fun or to pass the time and they really couldn't care less. Honestly comes off as a lot of dickwaving

      Sometimes I'm pretty positive that Hardcore gamers forget that you play games to have fun.

  20. Hey, I was wondering if you have gone away to a college/university yet and if you have how are you feeling about it so far? 

    1. Failinhearts

      Failinhearts

      Started my first year of Uni this week, and had a full year of college beforehand.

      I'm honestly enjoying it. Work's no doubt a step up from high school, but what's great is that you're able to pursue doing and studying what you like. So it feels more... free and enjoyable, in a sense.

      Started my first year at a proper college this week. First time I've been away from home. I'm still adjusting to everything.

      It does take time, but I'm sure it'll be second nature to you in time! Just keep calm, and don't be afraid to reach out for help.

  21. I've been finding myself becoming more fond of the more sinister Eggman of the adventure games lately. 

  22. Incredibly unfortunate news. Never met him but always seemed like a very nice, humble person. His artwork and contribution to StC was incredible and has influenced me and thousands more. Never read 2000AD but I’ll have to give it a go one of these days. A big shame he died so young. He won’t be forgotten. Everyone should check out his deviantart as well and give their thoughts. https://www.deviantart.com/handtoeye
