@Corbie: :: bows, exits stage left ::

though I am honestly sad that stuff like Candy Land and Chutes and Ladders can be found in PC-game form nowadays. i hope board games still exist in board form in the future. :(

seriously, though, i'm pretty sure the first video game i ever played was Super Breakout on the Atari 5200.

@Rapadash6: it [King of the Hill] was nice in that it didn't need to beat you over the head with its humor, but there were also times when the things that were happening just weren't funny IMO. it was a good last episode, though, even though that kind of thing would never have happened IRL, lol.

i agree that The Cleveland Show does look stupid, but I'll give it a shot before turning my nose up at it at least. anything's better than The Simpsons. :/ :: shrug ::

I agree, but I have to say I'm disappointed with the NES version of SMB3 which is on Virtual Console, the conversion is a bit shoddy.

how so? it plays exactly the same as I remember it playing back when i was a kid, graphics oddities, occasional slight slow-downs, and all.

@Chatham: it was probably the weirdest King of the Hill episode I've ever seen. It really felt like they knew they were going off the air anyway, so they went ahead and wrote the 'perfect' episode for the Hill family, ludicrous or not. :3

i swear i've never dropped a handheld so often as I've dropped my DSi (though never really a fall of more than three or four feet, if i had to guess), and the only real problem so far (knock on wood) has been that sometimes a game will freeze up on me after a fall. hooray, Nintendo. :3

what constitutes a 'great' review? copious amounts of four-letter words. it's part of the reason I love the AVGN so much. :3

lol. seriously, though, i look for reviews that cover things i'm worried about with each individual game, which may be gameplay mechanics (as in 'did they fix blah-blah-blah from the last one?'), plot/story, length/complexity, or other things that may have piqued my interest from the trailer or the hype surrounding it. i never rely on one single review, though -- if something is actually a problem, it'll show up in more than one review; otherwise, it could be that the one dude that had a problem with blah-blah-blah was just having an off day, or they just hate games with whatever-it-was in it.

wow, morbid thread. o_O

i've seen websites come and seen them go... usually it's because the people running it decide to give it up and then it falls into ruin under new management, or worse yet, the people running it decide they don't want to pay for hosting and bandwidth anymore, so they shut it all down. i'd expect to see that kind of thing happen long before this place were to be left and abandoned outright with no management present. :3

it's your choice, man. go with your gut... if you don't think you're ready to dive into it when your birthday hits, don't push yourself to do it just because your friends are. if they're really your friends, they'll understand your reasons for not choosing to imbibe along with them. :3

that said, those friends who are more experienced with alcohol may be able to recommend some lower alcohol-content drinks so you can enjoy your first buzz, if you decide you're interested in giving it a try after all.
