Am I right in remembering you guys doing a separate awards thing for music last year? Because I felt there was a sad lack of music awards. The best sound award was it.

I believe we're still planning on doing some kind of music of the year awards.  Some real life stuff got in the way of those who would have gotten it posted.  But as you noticed, we were a little earlier than normal with the goty awards, so I wouldn't rule it out.

Aw, sad momma duck.  I've seen a few stories like that - hopefully this one ends like the others did, with someone getting the babies out.

I could happily trade quotes from that movie for almost as long as the movie lasts. :)

Hey, he's a physics teacher, not English.

Edit: also, what are you talking about?  It doesn't say that... ;)

There's just as much reason to not censor it as there is to censor it. None. Zero. Zilch.

You're wrong.  There's exactly one reason to do that or to avoid it: whether they think they'll make more money if they make this change.  If they think making that change will positively impact sales, they'll make it.  If they think it'll negatively affect sales, they won't.  End of story.

I don't know enough to know if this is the case here, but let's say they feel the Australian censorship boards will refuse to let them sell the game without changing it.  That leaves them choosing whether to localize the game two ways, one for Australia, and one for everyone else, or just to alter the costumes for everybody outside of Japan and save some money.

Well, like someone said about Vita, if you're considering getting a PS4 and you have PS+, make sure you go out and "buy" any free PS4 games so they're in your library.

Here's a link to the web version.  It's easy to buy the games that way.
Playstation Plus free games on PS Store

Yeah, playing hardcore on PC is an extremely risky proposition.  I've tried it, but I don't want to risk lag death.  My demon hunter was on PS3.  (I've got both because I reviewed the console version for RPGFan.)

Glad you liked Clue.  It might not have become one of your favorites, but it's one of mine.  Tim Curry, Madeline Kahn, Christopher Lloyd, Michael McKean... everybody is awesome.

I have a level 60 witch doctor (on PC), but I've never really used zombie anything.  As my regular attack, I use firebomb with the ghost bomb rune, although I used the one that makes it bounce six times for a long time.  Secondary is Locust Swarm with Pestilence - I love how it splits off over and over to damage a whole herd of enemies.  I've got both of the summons, and then I use Soul Harvest with Soul to Waste (because I forget to cast it if it only lasts 30 seconds) and Spirit Barrage with Manitou.  That one's great because it's always firing at people, even if you get frozen or stuck behind a wall.

But I might try Zombie Bears as a replacement for Locust Swarm.  The internet says it's a good skill. :)

I was very sad when my level 59 hardcore Demon Hunter died the other day.  Took it as a sign that I should play some other stuff for a while.

I'm with you on the expansion, too.

I like that one.

Have you seen The Evolution of The Hipster?

Have you seen the "theory" that the Isle of Sodor is actually a totalitarian dystopia?  Here's an article about it:

When I was in basic training, I was among a group assigned to clean the bathroom one day, and the drill sergeant told us he wanted to be able to drink out of the toilet.

When we were done, he came in with a coffee mug and at least appeared to take a big swig of toilet water.

I always wonder if it's coincidence that I saw him at sick call the next day...

I agree - there's lots of cool stuff available for Vita.  I've got a PS4, so I've been taking advantage of the Remote Play feature, and I really like it.  It lets me play stuff while we're using the PS3 to watch a movie.  I haven't had the best results when playing over wi-fi, which is sad, but as long as I am connected "directly" to the PS4, it's all good.  Haven't done any looking into what the problem may be.

Saw Frozen last week.  Thought it was kind of stupid. :( 
Code:
My main issue was that everything happened too quickly in the setup.  The "we're getting married" after the ball was the way everything in the movie happened until the big conflict erupted.  And there was no reason whatsoever for the snowman character.  And the whole reason for the conflict in the first place was parents following poorly-worded advice in the worst possible way, which led to an orphaned girl continuing their policies that could only lead to disaster.  The advice was essentially "You must learn to control this - fear is your enemy."  And their reaction was "Never use this.  Let it ball up inside of you and be afraid of what would happen if you ever let it out."

Saw Snow White and the Huntsman yesterday night.  Supremely stupid movie with just one or two redeeming ideas.  The dark forest was genuinely creepy.  Somehow not using actual dwarves as the dwarves works out far less well in this than it does in LotR, and little people actors noticed (and were pissed).  And as others have noted, there is no world in which Kristen Stewart has ever been or ever will be "fairer" than Charlize Theron.

Oh, no problem - I actually figured I was in for spoilers on the whole book.  Thanks for the explanation.

I understand better now, but I agree that they've muddied the waters enough in the movies that it doesn't make sense in them that nobody's been killed at least once.
