  1. Retro City Rampage releases today! Finally!
  2. Man. The PlayStation was the first game system I got within its original life cycle, so when I get all nostalgic about video games, that's where my mind goes. The original Spyro the Dragon is still one of my all-time favorite games, and was the first game I purchased a digitally from the PSN once I got a PSP. One of my favorite things about the PSP was the PSone emulation; now they just need to get their act together and put out the PSone emulator for the PSVita.
  3. A band I really like decided to go full indie for their 13th LP and fund everything through KickStarter (successfully funded at 243% of their goal). They released a rough cut of a demo for the new album, so I'm listening to that. I likes it.
  4. It's highly unlikely that EA purchased it themselves. I am not a lawyer, but seeing as how Activision holds the rights to the title, I'd imagine it would at least be enough for a domain seizure, if not straight up legal action. It's more likely that a fan who ardently prefers BF over CoD set it up as a jab. Whois shows it was registered through Domains by Proxy, Inc., though, so we can't know who exactly is responsible.
  5. The "Choose Defaults" dialog allows you to set your default startup tool, as well as the default settings for the tools that have them. You can access this dialog by clicking the "Tool" button on the far left of the toolbar. It is the first option. You can read more about these settings on this page of the Paint.NET online Documentation.
  6. I got in this afternoon. They had it open for a few hours, but they've reached their capacity again.
  7. Unfortunately, even if someone did have an invite to send, the aren't allowing any new account activations right now. The invite should still be valid when the open it back up, but we'll have to wait until they do so. I too missed the boat by a few hours.
  8. It's basically a "thanks" button to recognize useful posts. EER put up an Announcement explaining the basics.
  9. I'm interested in the PSVita, but I'm also a big PSP fan, so rather expect being in the minority. I'm at least intrigued at the possibilities of the WiiU, but I'll have to see some specs and some actual games before I'm convinced. I find it odd that they only allow one controller per box, but I'd never be playing local multiplayer anyway, that that's a non-issue. The best part of E3 was the 3-4 hour GiantBomb podcasts each night.
  10. Minecraft for XBOX360 Kinect, of all things. I have no idea how they're planning on having you control that.
  11. Newb is a shortening of the word newbie. I tend to pronounce it the same way - essentially new-b - in my head, just to keep the distinction. Newbie is a generally affectionate term for someone who is new to the thing in question. Referring to someone as a newb points out their lack of experience as a natural extension of the limited amount of time they've had, and is usually used without malice. It is possible to grow out of being a newbie simply with time and practice. On the other hand, a noob - pronounced as it looks as a single syllable, sometimes spelled n00b if you're h4rdc0r3 l33t - ca
  12. Difficult question. Looking at each of the games individually, I'd give the victory to Spyro, solely because of the original. The platforming puzzles in that game were magnificent, making full use of the free-roaming 3D environment and gliding ability of the character, hiding the level secrets on platforms that were just around a corner out of the line of sight from the critical level path. The Crash Bandicoot games relied more on timing and precision to navigate individual smaller scale challenges, more like the classic 2D platformers. However, looking at the games as a series, Crash takes
