Re: Oh those pet peeves

That's not quite what I'm talking about, but it's related. The SNES wasn't really consistent on what button was the primary button; it tended to vary by genre. Platformers and other action-based games typically used B/Y/A as primary/secondary/tertiary inputs (usually jump/attack/special), while RPGs...

Re: TMNT (created by Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird)

TMNT 2012 ends the same way as TMNT 2003: a team-up with TMNT 1987. Turtles Forever was better, ultimately, but the 2012 finale does a lot right, most notably reuniting the original cast in their original roles (less the late James Avery, of course; Kevin Michael Richardson replaces him as Shredder ...

Re: Oh those pet peeves

I think the problem, ultimately, is less that Dreamcast/Xbox labeling became standard than that Nintendo made the baffling decision of combining Latin letters with Japanese-style right-to-left reading order. Y-X, B-A may be what my muscle memory says, but it's still objectively wrong.

Re: Oh those pet peeves

I may have just shouted "lick my balls" at a game because it gave me Xbox button prompts even though I was using a PlayStation controller, and then mocked me for pressing the wrong buttons. So, I realize we're squarely in First World Problems here, but, like, mocking the player for not pla...

Re: Hot game deals

Fanatical's got some good bundles and sales on. I'm tempted to pay $7 for Shenmue 3, though I haven't actually started Shenmue 2 yet. And I also have three unplayed Yakuza games, which are not Shenmue but are Shenmue-adjacent.

River City Girls free with Switch Online through December 12. Not free to keep; you can only play it free through the 12th. But it's currently half-price in the shop if you *do* want to keep it.

Bought a new electric toothbrush. It has an insert explaining that it doesn't include a power brick because Philips is committed to sustainability. And look, I've got USB power jacks in my bathroom. I don't need a power brick, I'm fine with not having a power brick, if there had been a power brick i...

Re: TV Series On The Television

Watched the first episode of Willow and thought it was solid even if it was slow-burn table-setting stuff (if you'll pardon the mixed metaphor). Introduce the cast, who are a bunch of stock fantasy tropes; set up their arcs, which is that they're a bunch of unlikely heroes who are going to discover ...
