Sharpies are lifesavers, aren't they? So versatile! One time on picture day at school, I took a Sharpie and drew a Hitler [mustache] out of it. They actually took my picture, too!. However, the people preparing the yearbook used my picture from last year. Oh well :(

They should have used Photoshop or paint.net to fix it, if they really wanted to. ;)

Wow.

Up until yesterday, I wasn't even aware that Konami had made a Metal Gear series game for the Game Boy Color. I saw a video of it on YouTube, and it looked pretty cool, so I got curious and checked it out on Amazon. Turns out, there is in fact a new, factory sealed copy left on Amazon, for $999.99.

I mean, I get that they've held onto it for years, assumably to sell it as a collector's item later, but I'd say 1000 bucks for a Game Boy Color game borders on ridiculous...

On a related note, I purchased Metal Gear Solid 4 yesterday - it's my first PS3 game! ( :AddNoise: 8) :AddNoise: )

Actually, since I don't yet have a PS3, it's of little use at the moment, but the title is going on the SCEA Greatest Hits list on Tuesday, and I wanted one with the original "black-label" cover art to join the black-label Essential Collection and the black-label stand-alone MGS3:Subsistence 2-disc set on my game shelf. The Greatest Hits discount is awesome, but the edited cover art is terrible this generation.

That's one of the most brilliant business tactics I've ever heard of.

Marble Saga Kororinpa.

Most. Addictive. Game. Ever.

 

The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

I LOVE tvtropes. I can waste hours at a time on that site. I don't know what it is about that particular Wiki...

I think it's because every other word is a link to another page of the wiki, referencing another trope. I won't understand the definition of this trope unless I read the description for that one, and so on, and so on... ;)

Both of you are exactly right. And Dan, I think the correct term is a wiki walk - a term you should already know, actually, since I first found it on TV Tropes.

@CMD: Lol, a PS3 game without the PS3... what irony ;)

Haha, I just bought Gran Turismo 5 Prologue for my PS3, but I have no controller XD

By the way, have you ever noticed that it's really easy to invent words on the fly if you use a keyboard? Nandas consenit falur desinado trabalonious sedadelic eandas cearn molentest... so funny how you brain automatically knows what letter combinations work. I guess that's why I'm able to spell things I normally can't while writing :)

Yes, very cool :D

Talking about automatic spell checking sort of stuff, has anybody heard about Google Wave, and is anybody in the closed beta?
