naah, nothing happened but work and games. i had an 8-day streak at one point and i've been called in a lot lately. I also bought and completed NyxQuest (great game, but those last couple of levels are crazy hard compared to the rest of it lol) and the other day I snagged My Life as a Darklord (more work = more money = more games :P).

also, strofan7, i'm afraid you haven't quite beaten my (apparently) beloved Eugene. sorry, dude. :3

I like Macdonalds and oPortos as much as the next person, but it hardly compares to a restaurant.

True, in that case, I like Logan's Roadhouse

They let you eat peanuts with your meal and they let you leave the shells on the floor! what's better than that?!?!?

the cinnamon butter you get with your rolls, that's what! just ate there the other day... i don't remember the cinnamon butter down in FL, but up here in NC we got it, and it was great. :3

I just caught Idiocracy the other day on Comedy Central, and they had to bleep and blur out so much of it I absolutely have to see this movie uncut eventually. It was absolutely hilarious. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who likes extreme advertising and fratboy/college humor. :3

seriously, check out this 'ad' for Brawndo: The Thirst Mutilator (it's a product featured rather prominently in the movie). there's two more ads available here and here if you're interested, lol.

i'm pretty sure my last save for Suikoden Tierkreis was 60 hours on the dot. then again, i spent a lot of time trading to earn money for good equipment and stuff, and also some minor grinding for levels so I could get through some quests. :3 Twilight Princess was a 40-something hour game for me, and i believe my Okami save file was at 66 hours iirc.

and then there's games like Chrono Trigger, where I really don't want to know how long I spent playing it in order to get through every available ending. holy crap. :3

some events won't trigger, though, unless you've already fully completed things in a different time period. if something sounds odd, try visiting that same area in a different time period to see if there's something you forgot to do or someone you forgot to talk to.

Oh, you don't know the half of it. When that game came out, my little brother was still quite young and he thought the baby was saying "Hi, hi!" to him, so he'd intentionally let the baby Mario float around in the bubble constantly and laugh about it. From that point on, we've always known the game as Hi Hi, so I often forget its real name and think people mean Yoshi Story when they say Yoshi's Island. All day long... hi, hi, hi, hi... It's part of the reason I am how I am today.

vaguely-related anecdote time!

so my little sister, back when she was first learning how to write... it was around xmas, i believe, and she was totally believing in Santa Claus at the time, so they taught her how to write 'ho ho ho'... and she apparently thought that was how you wrote everything -- 'ho ho ho'. she wrote in all the Little Golden Books she had with her crayons and stuff, and all it was was 'ho ho ho ho ho ho ho' over and over again, but if you asked her what she'd written she'd tell you all kinds of whacked-out stories about whatever it was she thought she'd written, lol. we still tease her about that today.

Dance Dance Revolution (and any other Bemani game, for that matter) is pretty brutal without sound (done it before for purposes of screwing around with my friends... yeah, it was hilariously bad, lol). Other than that... i dare say I wouldn't have enjoyed Super Mario Galaxy half as much without sound.

as for games that were noticeably improved by a lack of sound (not that you asked), I would have to put Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island on that list. the Baby Mario wailing really gets on my nerves sometimes. D:
