Come on, one of the forms makes no logical sense at all.  "I couldn't care less" means you care so little that it's not possible for you to care any less.  "I could care less" means...what?  It might mean that you care a lot.  It's not really saying anything.

I thought both "I could" and "couldn't" care less meant essentially the same thing: a lack of care, whichever way you read it.

No, one of them is correct and the other is an annoyingly common mistake.  Still, a lot of people make that mistake and language evolves, blah blah blah...personally I will fight it till the day I die.  But I'm the kind of person who insists on proper spelling, grammar, punctuation, and capitalization even in text messages.

I honestly didn't really like the first game and I was all set to ignore the sequel, but from what I've been reading they are making a serious effort to address a lot of my complaints.

Still, 2011 is so packed with good games that I'll take a wait and see approach this time around.

I'd give myself stock tips.

Most of my favorite games are 'old'.  I wouldn't want to ruin my childhood gaming memories by exposing myself to the flashy but shallow crap they make today ;)

A PS2 game actually charted and at nº 6 no less, it's called Amagami, no idea what the hell that is but it's really impressive, it's actually higher on the chart than any 3DS game.

It's a dating sim.  I have no idea why it's on the charts now, though.  It's not a new game.

Valkyria Chronicles is probably my all-time favorite PS3 game, but we're drifting further and futher away from the whole make-your-character-and/or-party thing.

These guys aren't hackers, they're script kiddies.  Calling them 'hackers' is giving them way too much respect.

You kids have it easy with your 'essays'.  I'm working on my dissertation...

Anonymous has always been stupid.  It's just a collection of 4chan /b/tards.

So there's all these sub-genres within hentai which is already an anime sub-genre. I feel more inteligent now.

Anime isn't a genre, it's a medium.  Hentai is a genre, not a sub-genre.

Anyone who says bikes should be on the sidewalk obviously doesn't ride a bike.  I cruise at 15-20mph on flat ground on my bike (and can go much faster downhill, obviously).  You do not want something going 20mph on a sidewalk.  The ratio in speed between an experienced cyclist and the average pedestrian is much larger than the ratio between a car and that cyclist.  Not to mention that on a lot of sidewalks there isn't even room to avoid a pedestrian if they pop out without looking (which they do all the time).

I will use sidewalks occasionally (it's actually legal in Seattle) but only if I'm climbing a steep hill and have significanly slowed down as a result and there is no viable bike lane or shoulder to ride on.

It's funny that people would object to bike lines when they would actually solve a lot of these problems...

I have thought the same thing.  The Yakuza games feel more RPG-ish than a lot of stuff that gets covered here.  Though it is true that Sega doesn't market them as RPGs.

I'm not very far in TitS yet, but I would say that it's the better game.  Hexyz Force seemed pretty generic and forgettable to me.  And BTW, I really liked Yddgra Union.  Hexyz Force and Yggdra union may be from the same developer but they don't have anything to do with each other.

TitS is very dialogue-heavy, though.  It's not epic save-the-world kind of dialogue, but it is--for the most part--well-written, which is what makes it enjoyable.  It's a pretty standard RPG setup only you can have an actual short conversation with every random NPC you talk to instead of just two sentences pointing you to the next objective.  Whether you not you actually want to spend hours talking to NPCs is a matter of taste.

Calm, calm yourselves.  Let's all just admit who the one true enemy is here to both the army of walkers and the cavalry of drivers...

The Cyclists.

Hey, I'm a cyclist!  I bike 18 miles a day for my commute.  There are some cyclists who are complete assholes and make me want to pull them over and beat them with Kryptonite lock (that would hurt in case you don't know), but most cyclists I know are good people.
