    Game Theory: Wii U is the New Virtual Boy

    Its true that the recent influx of games has seemingly saved the Wii U's death spiral, but several of the things mentioned in the video are arguably wrong or misleading. Batterylife: There are alternative controllers that can be purchased (and most people will anyway because of couch co-op)...

    The Big Picture: Dinosaur Exodus

    It always annoys me how people get bent out of shape about sci-fi science/world history not matching the real world. It is fiction and thus inherently doesn't have to match it. So long as it is plausible and consistent I fail to see how fictionalized it is matters. Reptile like dinosaurs are...

    Do you think its wrong to step on bugs - why or why not?

    The troubling thing about your scenerio isn't that you killed a spider. Its that you're actively taking some sort of sadistic pleasure from crushing a spider.

    Escapist Podcast: 154: Post-PAX Podcast

    I have to express my immense gratitude for mentioning Dragon Warrior Monsters. I played this game when I was 10 and it was one of my favorite games of all time. Except I never got to beat it because my copy was stolen and I couldn't remember the name. I've spent over a decade trying to figuring...

    League of Legends Will Reboot Story, Ditch Old Lore, in Future Updates

    Its conveyed in the game mostly through Easter eggs and character designs. Otherwise yes, its almost entirely peripheral to the game itself (which is why it makes sense to sever the chain of the game's mechanics like Riot is doing). The benefit is that for hardcore fans/lore enthusiasts it adds...

    Can Reptiles Make Good Pets In Your Mind?

    Depends on what you want in a pet. Do you want warm fluffy affection and interaction? Reptiles, fish, arthropods, etc will be a horrible pet for you. Go for mammals or birds Do you want something cool to take care of/watch? Everything makes a good pet pending on your aesthetic...

    I'd Like my Legend of Korra, minus the Korra please

    She tried to resolve that without violence. She tried to appeal to him and when that doesn't work to reason and relate to him. Jumping straight towards violence/force/intimedation was not what happened there. It's just what she fell back on when her limited tool-belt of civil discussion failed.

    X Rebirth Studio Boss Apologizes For Buggy Launch

    How might I go about getting a refund? I haven't been able to as of yet.

    Poll: Would You Push The Button? (Moral Dilemma)

    No, I like my immediate family and have emotion ties to them that are greater than any monetary value. Change the button to kill any random person in the world and I'd likely hit it 10 or so times.

    Favourite anime protagonist

    Balsa from Morbito is the first that jumps to mind. Reasons without spoilers? She isn't a caricature like many other protagonists in anime. Realistically bad-ass. Believable and tragic back story Believable agenda/goals and character progression. If you by chance haven't watched...

    300 Heroes Rips Off League of Legends, Naruto, Shrek and More

    I'm not entirely sure they made most those animations either. They remind me of what I use to see back with the Warcraft III custom matches of One-Piece and Naruto themed DOTA remakes.

    Escapist Podcast: 089: Religion in BioShock, David Jaffe and Playing Nice

    I liked your outro joke Paul. It certainly wasn't good by any measure, but it made me smile.

    Your favorite Anime

    Monster is always one of my top picks along with Serial Experiments Lain and Haibane Renmei. I don't really have a clear favorite, nor do I like the categorization as my preference is always in flux.

    Doctor Who Series 7-8: The Rings of Akhaten (SPOILERS)

    I can't believe so many people missed the straight up remark from The Doctor about it being a PLANET. It was at the beginning of the episode when the Doctor was explaining to Clara about the religion of the people in that system, and how all life originated from... that planet.

    Doctor Who Series 7-8: The Rings of Akhaten (SPOILERS)

    I agree the leaf thing is iffy and open to interpretation. Another possibility I've considered is that it relates to Clara apparently being a stable in space time, but that contains a bit more conjecture than what I consider the more straight forward case. The Cube Monster was as The Doctor...
