Maelstrom commented on The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time Speedrun ...:

Why do people keep calling glitched runs "cheating."
Do you actually understand how ridiculously hard it is to do the wrong-warp glitch? A glitched run allows for more possibilities. Is a runner skilled enough to take a shot at a possible glitch? Do they have enough health to Shinespark across the next gap? That is why it is so great to watch these kinds of runs live, like durring AGDQ. I still see no point in discrediting glitched runs just because they use glitches. If you think it takes little skill, look up the Mirror's Edge speedrun race from AGDQ a year or two back. They say multiple times that it is a very, very hard game to speedrun. And they die and miss glitches left and right, Yet they are among the best speedrunners in the world.



Maelstrom commented on Weirdness: This Video Uses Super Mario Bros. 2...:

Just no. Protestantism teaches salvation by faith, not works. I have never met a Christian that thought "If I don't work hard enough, I will be sent to Hell."
The point of pure Capitalism is that anyone can become rich through hard work. Yes, that implies that working hard will result in little income. Yet, the only alternative is Communism. A society where everyone receives the same income whether their job requires more skill/training (e.g. Doctor) or whether or not they even do a good job. There is no reward for efficiency and no punishment for laziness. If innovation is not rewarded, how will society progress? /rant



Maelstrom commented on Review: Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth (3DS):

I really don't know if I'll like this game. I love EO IV, but a lot of that comes from its method of storytelling: It's basically nonexistent in the beginning, when your only objective is to explore. But it becomes so much more when you reach the 4th world and everything you expected is completely turned on its head.
And I've never played a Persona or SMT game, so.......
