@SMF96: when i get home, i'm going to try putting the wiimote down as soon as i beat the final boss and seeing if anything happens differently (provided it shuts off in time, lol). or i guess i could take the batteries out and see what that does...

I wasn't really impressed with the bosses in this game.

i honestly have to agree. they were much, much easier than the ones in Beat, and i suck at Pong and Breakout so hard it's not even funny, so i was pretty much howling at the screen in frustration during the final boss. at least i got past it, but still... i get that they were trying to make it something playable in one sitting, but at least the second boss was something completely fresh, y'know? :/

the rest of the game was awesome, though, IMO. :3

so i got past the final boss, went through the 'return to the planet' part, wound up triggering the Game Over by setting the wiimote aside because i was frustrated at the blank screen in front of me and was out of ideas (perhaps to confirm the fact that you must set the wiimote aside, besides the home button, none of the other buttons do anything except minus, which pauses the game as if you're still playing), but the credits didn't roll — the words 'bit.trip flux' rolled up the screen, and then it returned to the title screen. did i do something wrong to not trigger the credits? i'll watch 'em from the title screen real quick before i head out to job#2 here in a few.

i don't quite get it at this point, but i think overall i'm happy with Flux. except for that cheap 'going backwards' part during the second boss, the 'avoid' bits were a fun obstacle. i liked the added challenge of trying to get the 'bonus' bits, and it just felt good to come home to where it all started: Beat-style gameplay. i'm so glad i didn't spoil myself on the music, either, but i was sorely tempted yesterday when i saw it available on iTunes... will definitely be purchasing that later today, haha.

i'll also try out the whole 'don't hit any beats during the end sequence' thing and see what happens when i get home from work tonight. i gotta try it at least once, even though that end boss was a b*tch and a half. i also kinda want to try pointing the wiimote at the screen, i don't think i tried that either. i totally suck at Pong, though. :(

Sounds like manipulation to me.

Most things we do are psychological in many ways...people who started off the meme phenomenon effectively made them popular because others followed suit.

Perhaps we'll soon see street protests against you, followed by the collapse of the incumbent's rule and a move towards the site team becoming democratically elected by the people? :P

you mean programming a giant staff-member elections poll? haha, i'm sure Ant'll get right on that ;)

i don't see why the clocks get so much hate. yeah, they're not really games, the system comes with a built-in clock, yadda yadda, but i've been using the Mario Clock almost every single night for over a year now. i can have multiple alarms set if i want, change what music i wake up to, and if i want to mess around for a few minutes there's the little running-mario minigame on the top screen. there's nothing wrong with wanting something with a little more functionality than what came pre-installed, and i'd say i've gotten my 200 points' worth out of it for srs.

My all-time favorite AVGN vid is probably a tie between TMNT (because everything he said was so frickin' true! hated that game as a kid, haha) and the Friday the 13th Halloween vid (i just love that one for some reason :3). Runners up include Plumbers Don't Wear Ties, Spiderman, and the Ninja Gaiden outtake video (if that counts).

@Jaw51: lol that Fred Fuchs moment was hilarious. I also enjoyed the LJN Rainbow of Death revelation... after that point, i started noticing the regularity with which that thing showed up on games he's skewered over the years, haha.
