    So you want to play devil's advocate...

    Well, it's not just meant for internet conversation exclusively. But let's say your friend just won't shut up about his new fitness regimen. You go to addiaboli.org, go to "health>lifestyle>sports>whycrossfitsucks", and voilá, you are ready to see whether your buddy knows wtf he's talking about...

    So you want to play devil's advocate...

    Sounds like a way for making internet coversation into trench warfare (well, atleast more than usual).

    So you want to play devil's advocate...

    I just had a pizza-inspired idea: A website where you can collect and find counter-arguments (incl. sources and other supporting material) to any kind of popular opinion. Part Snopes, part TVTropes, part Wiki, part knowyourmeme. Just kind of like a ressource for the youtube commenter...

    Steam Client Beta Patch Notes: REFUNDS!

    The way I read it in the notes, the refund will be worked out through the channel you paid by (eg PayPal), store credit only applies if they can't refund by the original channel.

    Steam Client Beta Patch Notes: REFUNDS!

    So, apparently Steam is going to offer refunds with a timeframe of 2 weeks, provided you didn't play longer than 2 hours. In light of the upcoming Summer Sale, that might be a critical move. Your thoughts? Full story...

    The Episode Where Constantine Becomes A Demon King

    The accent (his or hers for that matter) bothers me less than her constantly reminding me of Bonny Rotten...

    Steam Summer Sale is winding down, damage report.

    I got lucky this year. Many things I would've been interested in I already got in previous sales (like Civ V+Expansions, XCOM), and some others were simply too demanding for the hardware I got (shame, Borderlands 2 GOTY would've been nice). What I got: 21st: -Frozen Synapse: Soundtrack...

    Bananas, racist?

    ^This. For our friends across the pond (NAmerica in particular): - Imagine a sport where black players haven't been a massive influence since basically forever. So... ice hockey. - Now, I'd like you to imagine one team has a black player. - The moment he skates onto the ice, some jackass...

    Are inventory weight limits a useless mechanic?

    I have yet to see a video game that incorporates the old D&D "encumbrance" approach. Each item had an "encumbrance" rating which was a combination of its weight and general unwieldiness. Your penalties for light/medium/heavy load would kick in when either your carried weight or encumbrance...

    Anime where it sounds better Translated

    Most dubs suffer from the same problem: Japanese tends do get across lots of info in a short time (more compact terminology, and being a pretty *motor-mouthed* language). This leads to two issues: Trying to fit a more "unwieldy" English (or German, or whatever) phrase into the same timeslot...

    Game of Thrones, Prince Oberyn Nymeros Martell in the TV show. *SPOILERS*

    Black? Well, the only reliably black guys in the books were from the Summer Isles or (likely) the continent of Sothyros. The Dornish seemed mostly to have Moorish (think Morocco/Southern Spain) influences. With varying parts of Westerosi and Rhoynar (who came from Essos) mixed in, depending on...

    Game of Thrones, Prince Oberyn Nymeros Martell in the TV show. *SPOILERS*

    I'll assume this was meant for me. I apologize if I spoiled something which either came up in the episode or is unlikely to come up/be a content spoiler/relevant in the show. Like you said, ignorance. I saw the spoiler warning and made assumptions, sorry. Plus, I don't seem to have figured out...

    Anime / Cartoon fans, please help me identify this!

    Okay, so lately I've been thinking of a show I watched a couple of times when I was but a wee lad, sometime between '89 and '92. I know I liked it, but it's been so long, and I can't recall the title (plus, different countries and different names, so...). I'd love to have a gander at it again...
