It depends a lot on the length of time that “crashing” entails - if you’re spending one or two nights on their spare bed or couch, you probably aren’t going to be doing laundry and you might not even need a shower so that eliminates like half the article right there. But if it’ll be a few weeks or longer, it Read more

Also, I know that were aren’t in the Phone Charger Wild West of 2004, but there are still three different charging ports that someone may have - it would be absurd for a guest to get mad at a host for not having an iPhone charger when they don’t have any iPhones.

My buddy and a friend of his stayed at my house one night last week and he brought a cherry pie, it was great.

Agreed, the story mode was so tedious (most of the missions were pretty easy but then they’d throw an impossibly hard one in for no reason). Also (and this isn’t really the game’s fault), I realized that a lot of the fun in Mario Tennis comes from playing against other people and I don’t have anyone to play with like Read more

Makes sense and probably still works very well if you haven’t played the game already.

I enjoyed the heck out of Mario Golf on the Game Boy Color, N64, and the GameCube so I’ll probably be picking this up. Never really cared at all about golf outside of the Mario Golf games, though (except for the excellent Golf Story, of course).

Honestly it’s the kind of game that I feel like I only needed to play once. Now that I know the twists and have experienced them I don’t really have any desire to go through it all again. Read more

My point is that we’re all free to interpret the characters how we like, though we aren’t all free to (legally) make comics and movies with those characters using our interpretations that others will see. The creators still have say in what is actually produced and their interpretations matter a lot more in that sense. Read more

Yeah I imagine the Galvespians will either be live action actors CGed to look smaller or just fully CG with voice-over, either way they won’t need to be cast at the time of principal shooting.

I recommend re-reading them, it may have aged better than you think. Also I don’t know who you were when you read them, but as a 13-year-old atheist I thought it was pretty cool to have one of the main characters literally kill God. And honestly part of it was taking what had been teased for two books (the nature of Read more

I’m not saying Amazon = Bad and Best Buy = Good, but you don’t see the CEO of Best Buy going to space anytime soon. Sometimes, even if your only real options are two giant corporations, it’s good to not give your money to the bigger one to avoid them getting an eventual monopoly (though it’s not like I have any Read more

Yeah I don’t have a super visual imagination so I’ve never properly pictured them either, but I have seen some fanart. And I can’t imagine they’ll be removed, they’re pretty integral - the whole point of the titular Amber Spyglass was to see Dust on their world like they can and that all has a lot of larger plot and Read more

For the record - the original game gives Mario 2HP whether he’s big or powered, so two hits and you’re down to 0 and you die. By this metric, the GBA port gives Mario 3HP when powered. 3 is 50% more than 2, so you’re 50% more resistant (however, Mario in the original can be said to be 33% less resistant than in the Read more

If you’ve been watching the series you probably have a good idea of this, but keep in mind that the books are definitely young adult novels - they deal with some adult themes, but I never enjoyed them more than when I read them at 12-13. But if you like the content in the series I imagine you’ll like the books as well.

I’ll definitely be watching this, I enjoyed the first two seasons. Also looking forward to seeing the Mulefa, they're a big part of the book but I'm not sure what they'll end up actually looking like.

Right - (some) people are conflating the toxic idea of “the fans own the work and the creators need to only do the things that make the fans happy and if the fans demand that something be changed then the creators should make it happen” with the idea of “everyone owns their own interpretation and while no one else has Read more

Sure, I mean maybe if you asked him in 1977 Mark Hamill would have answered the question differently, due to a lot of factors, but I think the core of his answer is timeless - “the characters are there for you and if you enjoy the characters more by interpreting something that isn’t explicitly there or even intended, Read more

I didn’t see anyone sexualizing them? For some reason a 10 year old boy being straight isn’t considered sexualizing. No one’s talking about these kids having sex, but you can know at a pretty young age that you’re gay and you can be attracted to people accordingly.
