    Best Part Time Job to Work While in School?

    in General Discussion, last active on on 11 September 2019

    Hey everyone. I recently started grad school. So far so good but it's a really rough transition to go from receiving a full-time salary to effectively having no income. Anybody have any good stories they want to share about jobs they worked on the side while studying in university? This thread is more about therapy than seeking actual advice....

    Is Joy Con Drift Nintendo's Biggest Hardware Reliabilty Issue?

    in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 26 July 2019

    Nintendo has an amazing track record when it comes to making durable hardware. Their systems and handhelds are very reliable. With the recent reports of the Switch Joy Cons malfunctioning I started to wonder if this is the most widespread hardware reliability issue they have faced. Of course the Joy Con drift is not a disastrous problem akin to the Xbox 360's RROD fiasco but it is still...

    What Game Are You Best At?

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 18 July 2019

    We've all played many different games over the year. Games are all about skill. Naturally we are better at some games than others but which game are you absolutely best at? It could be multiplayer or singleplayer? A game you know so intimately that you consider yourself a pro....

    What is the Best Beatles Album

    in Music Discussion, last active on on 11 September 2019

    The Beatles are arguably the biggest band in the history of popular music. Out of their core catalog of 13 albums listed below which is their best? Personally I say The White Album. I like 9/30 of its songs which isn't a great ratio but its more pleasing to listen to than most of their other albums even if it is a long experience. My unpopular opinions is that Magical Mystery Tour features the...

    Pokemon Detective Pikachu Highest Opening for Videogame Movie

    in Movies Discussion, last active on on 14 May 2019

    So this weekend brought the U.S. opening of Pokemon Detective Pikachu. While the film did not debut in the number one position because of the continued dominance of Avengers: Endgame ($63 million weekend/ $723 million total), Pikachu's number two opening at $58 million is good enough to take the number one record opening for all movies based on videogames. The previous record was held by 2001's...

    What's Your Favorite Music Format?

    in Music Discussion, last active on on 20 July 2019

    What is your favorite format to enjoy music? Personally, I prefer streaming. I subscribe to Amazon Music which pretty much allows me to listen to any song I could want. I mostly stream music at work or at the gym. I like that it allows me to download mp3s to my phone so I can listen to them offline. Prior to streaming I would download mp3s. First I used to obtain them illegally (remember...

    I Want to Buy a Switch! Waiting on Potential New Hardware Announcements.

    in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 08 April 2019

    I have been interesting in buying a Switch ever since it was announced. To be honest I was not gaming much at the time though so I found it hard to justify the purchase. I was too busy with other things. Now things are calming down and I want to get back into gaming. I also want to buy a Switch as a present for myself for getting through that period of hard work. Even before the rumors of new...

    Gaming on the PS4 is so ANNOYING!

    in Sony Discussion, last active on on 03 April 2019

    I love the PS4. It think it is a great console with great games. However, I have not played in seriously in the past two years. Part of the reason is that I have been busy with work/school so gaming just became a lower priority. I also don't write for this site anymore which was once a huge component of my gaming time. I have tried to ease myself back into a steady habit so I can catch up on a...

    What is the Most Irrelevant Smash Bros. Game?

    in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 17 March 2019

    Super Smash Bros. is one of the most storied franchises in gaming. Each entry has been critically acclaimed and sold millions of copies worldwide. However they don't all have the same status or stature. Naturally some entries are held in higher esteem than others. So which Smash Bros. game do you think is the most irrelevant right now? Super Smash Bros. (N64) The one that started it all. Of...

    Do You Have a Preferred Launch Window for Games?

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 23 January 2019

    Is there a specific month or time of the year that you prefer to have big games release? For instance do you like a new game to start off the new year right? Do you not like games to release in the summer because you prefer to spend times outdoors when the weather is nice? Most big games release in the fall/holiday season, maybe you like that because you can dive into a game during time off from...

    Which Post-90s Bands Deserve to be in the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame?

    in Music Discussion, last active on on 28 March 2019

    In order to be eligible for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame a band or artists must be 25 years removed from their debut album. That means acts from 1994 are eligible after this years. Obviously this presents a problem because Rock was way past its prime and continued its decline from the 90s into the present day. It is hard for me to think of bands from that era that legitimately...

    Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse

    in Movies Discussion, last active on on 01 March 2019

    Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse is an amazing film. I have seen it twice now. It's definitely the best Spider-Man movie so far. It's like The Lego Movie but Spider-Man focused. The animation is also gorgeous. I think it is a hilarious pop culture masterpiece. Has anyone else seen it. If not you should....

    Best (Pre Nintendo Switch) Handheld Game of All Time?

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 15 January 2019

    Now that the Nintendo Switch is here I guess all of its games can be considered console and handheld titles. The distinction used to be clearer however and there was a perception that purely handheld games were inferior to console games. That being said what handheld game do you think is the best of all time? Obviously Switch games don't count for the purpose of this thread.   I will say...

    Instead of the PS Classic Sony Should Have...

    in Sony Discussion, last active on on 23 February 2019

    Just re=released the PS One. They should have just put this bad boy back into production with its optical disk and HDMI support. They could have preloaded the same 20 games but with the disc drive people could revisit any game they want and have access to. They are selling the PS Classic for $100 anyway. I seriously doubt a slightly modified PS One would be much more expensive to produce. ...

    Which Current Gen Games Will You Be Willing to Buy Remasters of Next Gen?

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 09 December 2018

    I expect the next generation of consoles to be backwards compatible friendly but still think lots of publishers will port over existing games with better graphics or features. Are there any games this gen you know you will already be willing to buy if they are given a next gen upgrade for new hardware? It could be a game you already bought or a game you held off on buying until next gen....

    What is the Dumbest Reason You Ever Bought a Game?

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 01 December 2018

    Title is self-explanatory. My story: My brother played Pokemon before me. He got Pokemon Red. When it was my turn to buy a Pokemon game he told me to buy the Blue version so we could trade. Even though Blue was my favorite color and matched the color of my Game Boy Color I thought my brother was trying to trick me into buying the worst version so I got Red too. Later we bought Blue version...

    I Want to Become a Minimalist

    in General Discussion, last active on on 25 November 2018

    I recently read a book on minimalist living called Goodbye Things by Fumio Sasaki. I am trying to throw away or get rid of most of my useless possessions. I like clean open spaces. My most recent big purchases were a used Macbook Pro and a DSLR camera so I can work on film projects. I have not had a car for about 4 years. I prefer public transportation and it is better for the environment. I...

    Is There Anything in Your Gaming History that You Are Embarassed About?

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 20 November 2018

    It could be anything in your gaming past that makes you cringe. Is there a particular series you enjoyed that you now realize sucks. Were you unable to beat a simple game? Did you get into a fight with a best friend over a game? I remember when I was young, probably between the ages of 8 and 13 I would always bug my mom to take me to buy new games. I would usually pay for them myself with money...
