FYI, we just got a copy of this from Nintendo for the site a few days ago (our contact there left the company and we had to get in touch with someone new), but we expect to have a review up within the next few days.

The Dreamcast controller suffered from some of the same bulk issues as the original Xbox.  And it had the cord coming out the bottom, which was awkward.  I don't think my hands are small, but I also preferred the smaller Xbox controller.

I hate the back touch panel of the Vita, but I like it a lot otherwise.  I wish that it let you re-map things for Remote Play, though.  Some games have L2/R2 and 3 mapped to the back, others put them on the corners of the touchscreen, and that works MUCH better.

As long as you got the AC adapter, the controller for the Virtual Boy was surprisingly good.  I believe it was the first to have something like its two d-pads, and they used that to good effect in a game or two.  If you didn't have the AC adapter, though, I'm sure the 8 AA batteries would have felt like lifting weights after not too long. :)

I don't see the images either.

My vote is also for Tali > Liara. :)

Had you managed to get out of the first town yet? ;)

^You either like it or you are a relentless dick if you didn't. What else is there to argue after 5+ years of noise with XIII?

As I told someone else recently, you're about half a step from a ban here, Ygg.  You've already got a bad reputation, so your leash is shorter than some folks'.  Cool it or get out.

This comes up every so often - on our current platform, it's not possible.  We're working on a total technical overhaul of the site, and we've discussed allowing comments... but I can't remember what we ended up deciding.  I'm asking our technical architect. :)

You've got to make your own choice, but for us here at RPGFan, our policy is that we finish a game before we review it unless we have a really feel like there's just no way we can do so.  And if we don't finish, we will tell you so in the review.  I believe there have only been two that I've given up on in almost 9 years at the site.  The latest was Omega Quintet, where I was over halfway through the game and discovered I was probably going to have to start over, and it was so bad I couldn't bring myself to do it.  (The other was Zoids Assault, which I now remember for two things: every battle was exactly like every other battle, and it had only five achievements.  One for being 20% of the way through the game, one for 40%, etc.)

What it really comes down to is whether you feel like you've given the game a full and fair examination.  Is there really anything that could happen in the parts of the game you haven't played that would impact your final score?  And even if there is, is this game so bad that nobody's likely to play it long enough to find out? :)

We even recorded a test before we did the real thing!

So I was listening to your podcast on Tetris and I have one question. Is Tetris a RPG? I thought of it more as a puzzle game than an RPG. First time I played Tetris was on Gameboy. I remember small scenes, a city and maybe a person. I'm not sure what version you guys played where you got the RPG element from.

Not an RPG at all.  That was our April Fools episode of Retro Encounter.  We picked Tetris in part because we thought it would be so super obvious that we were making stuff up.

Given that, I have been extremely happy to see more than one person sincerely ask that question - makes me feel like we did a really good job. :)  In case you missed it, I wrote a review of it as well, and we posted them together.  It is probably my favorite thing I've written for RPGFan in the almost 9 years I've been with the site.  (Although I was also pretty happy with another April Fools article I wrote back in 2011 "revealing" details about the next Kingdom Hearts game.)

Bluetooth headphones are pretty great.

I saw a thing the other day comparing a few live action Superman origin stories, and they all had a part where young Clark saves a bus full of kids and ends up having to ask his dad "should I have just let them die?"  Man of Steel is the only time that Pa Kent tells him "yeah, probably."  So weird.

Fassbender was Magneto in the new X-Men movies, if you've seen them.

If you liked that, jawsh, you'll probably find this interesting as well.  It's an analysis of film dialogue by gender and age of 2000 screenplays.

I thought folks here might find this list interesting - these guys went out and figured out which current-ish actors and actresses have been in the worst and the best-reviewed movies over their careers.

The most pleasant surprise was John C. Reilly at #3 on the best-reviewed list.
