I have no idea where I read this (might have been on here), but I seem to recall an interview where someone from Nintendo was talking about designing automated software to detect people drawing offensive stuff. When they came to testing it, they were somewhat put out to discover they hadn't even come close to… » 9/15/14 4:56am 29 minutes ago

Still to this day the most satisfying controller ever. I won't say it's the best, since that ridiculous appendix of a Z button loses it some points, but the A button is indisputably the greatest button of all time. Those lovely shoulder triggers are a joy too, and I'm of the firm opinion that no analogue stick should… » 9/14/14 4:55pm Yesterday 4:55pm

I've said it a bunch of times, to various people, but the core of the game is rock solid. It's heaps of fun to play, and I'd not claim otherwise for a second.

Thrown into a swimming pool full of drunk people by a bunch of probably not very responsible or well trained company reps?

This reminds me a bit of the time that punk band The Mr T Experience were asked to cover REM's Can't Get There From Here for a tribute album. Lacking a copy of the lyrics, and unable to figure out what Michael Stipe was singing, lead singer Dr Frank came up with... » 8/25/14 2:21pm 8/25/14 2:21pm

So... Not to be a downer, cos... Y'know... Awesome cosplay, but isn't stuff like moulded boob armour the kind of thing we seem to spend a lot of time objecting to here? I mean, in terms of pointing out kinda shitty representations of women in fantasy and Sci fi? » 8/24/14 5:26pm 8/24/14 5:26pm

I always loved that he was such a huge Legend of Zelda fan, he named his daughter Zelda. As a lifelong Nintendo fan who grew up during a period where Nintendo was becoming desperately uncool, it was so amazing to discover that even a huge star could be a geek like me. » 8/11/14 6:33pm 8/11/14 6:33pm
