Re: Phailhaüs 30

I laughed, I cried, and just when I thought it was over: "Soupy twist." I feel like some sort of precisely-targeted demographic for today's comedy, if you'll pardon the pun.

Re: Tucson or Bust

I kinda miss Andy's stage directions and impromptu chicken noise from the original, but the musical accompaniment and pre-thought-out lyrics were definitely improvements. It's nice seeing you experiment with new video techniques, even after all these years. Keep shifting that bar ever higher. Awesom...

Re: BREAKING NEWS: LRR + The Escapist = Success

I'm usually one of the last ones to hold out against change, but you've alleviated my fears quite well. It sounds like this licensing deal is going to end with nothing but good for us loyal lrrites.

Thanks for the years of entertainment, and here's to many more.

Will this change the content of the videos? I've only given it a cursory glance, but the escapist doesn't seem to have anything but video games on their site. I always enjoy your video game related videos, but that's only a small portion of what is LRR. Anyway, keep up the awesome, and congratulatio...

I'm pretty sure only the weekly videos will be moving. I doubt escapist would be renting all the silly little extras we've come to know and love.

So, congratulations for finally making real amounts of money for your videos after all these years. Also, in before lock.

Re: Grammarphiles unite; The Oxford Comma

I've always understood that the commas in a list are effectively doing the job of using "and" between each item, and thus the Oxford Comma is redundant. It can be useful to remove ambiguity in a sentence, but it isn't generally necessary or useful. I see it going the way of the double-spac...

Everblue 2. It's a PS2 scuba-diving game, like the Wii's Endless Ocean except with a lot more RPG elements.

I know Wikipedia has an article about everything, but I'm still continually impressed when something this specifically relevant shows up. My collection of encyclopedias has never been this useful. Thanks for the link.

Re: Doppleganger Mafia: Play. D2 (Finally, we flip a coin!)

Voting for someone that isn't playing is only going to help the Mafia; it eliminates someone that is clearly not even around to play, which doesn't do us any good at all. Not necessarily. Not to pull a Rumsfeld, but there are unknown unknowns, and there are known unknowns. If we vote for someone ot...

Re: Circumcision.

But there is a point there. If someone doesn't get regular medical check-ups, their body won't shrivel away, but that doesn't mean it isn't a good idea. I suppose the real question is whether the potential benefits outweigh the potential consequences. I don't have the resources to compare damages fr...

As long as we're agreed: Vote: Xolani

Unless someone has some Mafia for us to vote for, getting rid of an established neutral is better that potentially killing a good guy. (In my humble opinion; your mileage may vary.)

I don't think I've ever met an eight-year-old who could make a well-informed decision on a medical procedure.

...Second, if the mafia knows who is vanilla, then it narrows down their targets for who has the more powerful roles. We don't need to give the mafia any advantage they haven't earned. I hadn't ever thought about it that way. Very well put. So... is Xolani still an option? I presume that, since Hak...

Re: Why I don't play my Wii

My relationship with my Wii is a little bit odd. Despite rarely using it, the number of games I own for it far outnumber that of my other current-gen console, a PS3. When I first noticed this, I was rather shocked, because I have not once felt regret for buying a PS3, whereas after last year's E3, I...

That's not quite how I understood it. We each have a look-alike, but I think they don't necessarily have to have our role or our affiliation/win-condition. Of course, that could be wildly off the mark.
