#1412509 Taco Bell or Pizza Hut

Posted by Eric Dude on 12 January 2020 - 12:24 AM

Taco Bell is like the album The Downward Spiral; I understand why I enjoyed it in my younger days, and hell, it's something that I can eat every now and then for old time's sake. But for the most part, those days are behind me.

 

Stuffed crust pizza, however, is still something I can very much get down on.

 

Pizza Hut.

I have a couple of GBA games I don't want anymore:

 

Super Ghouls N Ghosts

Wade Hixton's Counter Punch

 

20 for either, shipped. Or, I am looking for a copy of Pokemon Red or Yellow, would trade for either of those straight up.

I mean, if it was the only car you had, you'd probably put the time into it rather than saying, "wow, I'm bad at this thing I've only just tried to do"

Sure. I'm just saying, the scenario of "this is the only car I have, I must learn this skill!" is becoming pretty rare. And that's fine.

 

My dad bought me a 5 speed truck when I was 17. So I had to learn how to drive a manual transmission if I wanted to drive at all. 
Also, Bikes are manual. 
My current daily driver is a manual transmission. I would not choose to have an automatic if I could avoid it.

 

Obviously I can see why you learned to drive a stick, but I can see no logical reason for you to try hard to avoid it at this point. Whatever shifts your gears, mate.

 

You know what's funny, though? I always choose "manual" in racing sims. :lol:

 

I guess for me, I spend so much time in traffic (2+ hours everyday) that driving is rarely a leisure activity, and I care not for authenticity of shifting in daily driving.

#1411564 Official E-Sports Thread

Posted by Eric Dude on 28 December 2019 - 11:09 PM

Well, the Classic Tetris World Championships (from Portland Retro Game Expo 2019) aired on EPSN2, so I guess Tetris is a legit e-sport now. I watched it start to finish. The whole thing was very well done, in terms of video production (capturing the players hands was a brilliant, if obvious, move), commentating, and competition. You should watch the whole thing if you can find it in it's entirety (or just piece it together on YouTube), but here are two great matches:

Check this man's veins.

You could learn if you had to

Thankfully nobody really has to. Even a lot of high end sports cars nowadays only have pseudo-manual shifting. Which probably disappoints the dick-wagging stick shift drivers, but computers can do most things better than we can.

 

(I have also tried and failed to learn how to drive a stick, but I also never really had to)

I wonder about the other songs on that list...

This short clip let me know that I am not missing anything by not watching AVGN, and it took less than a minute of my time. Thank you!

#1411097 norg, I'm calling you out

Posted by Eric Dude on 17 December 2019 - 10:18 PM

There are only 4 instruments, but norg had to do a separate track for every punch in.

S-Tier ball-busting. I approve!

If anyone can appreciate this it's you guys. Having to explain what this is, or what Metroid is, is already difficult in normal music circles. Mana and I are finally releasing this next Friday, and it's a very different take on a soundtrack we've all heard a LOT

YEAH I AM EXCITE!

#1410065 Post your game room

Posted by Eric Dude on 19 November 2019 - 10:20 PM

Kind of tempted on that pelican mondo-selector, but I've got enough stuff to Frankenstein it all together. And there's an odd sort of satisfaction in doing that.

 

We just bought our own house, and I get part of the garage for my game room. Should have pics in couple months.
