Welcome to The Off Topic Lounge: End of All Things Edition!

It's 2012. The world is ending. Miyamoto is retiring. The Wii is dead. The 3DS failed. Nintendo is doomed. Link still doesn't talk. Samus talks too much. Star Fox is dead. F-Zero is dead. Nintendo hates North America. Trolls are taking over Gamespot. Gabu left us for ponies. And Jaysonguy still isn't banned.

Why are we even here when everything we've ever cared about is DEAD???

This lounge. That's why.

Rules:

1. No spamming - "Off topic" doesn't mean "random and pointless." Yell in all caps about your favorite Power Ranger on Twitter or something. And it better be the green one.

2. No trolling or flaming - Be nice, even when someone takes Hitler's side. They'll just get banned for that anyway.


So gather around the tree and cozy up to the fire.... one last time.

Is anyone catching up or starting any television shows for the holidays? I just finished Breaking Bad (super amazing show) and Party Down. The shows on my list are American Horror Story, The Walking Dead, The League, and Big Bang Theory. I just don't which to start first! Suggestions? If you've seen anything worth watching on Netflix, post it because I love Netflix! :D

People get banned every year for taking Hitler's side

One sec they're all normal and the second later they post something like "Well Hitler really wasn't a bad guy because the Jews had it coming...." and then WHOOPS! see you later!

It's not even Hitler subjects either

"Hey I love cream puffs"

"So do I"

"Know who loved cream puffs? HITLER!"

Yeah, Rabbids guy is the only one i can think of. younghippster or hipyoungster or whatever his name was was a classic. We had a few people banish this year too. I don't recall seeing that snowman guy around for quite a bit of time. He posted here a lot.

And I knew I shouldn't have started playing Final Fantasy 6 until I got done with my backlog a little bit... but now I'm hooked and that will take away from time needed to be successfully completing 1-2 year old games.... Is gaming A.D.D. a disorder? I think I have it!!

I forgot about the rabbids guy :lol:

Snowman doesn't post around anymore, but his profile says he was online today - So, I dunno lol.

I have Gaming ADD too it's okay.

Ugh, that show is terrible, the cliche nerd thing hasn't been funny since Urkel did it.

It was funny initially, only because of Sheldon.

I feel like that show, along with Two and a Half Men appeal to the lowest common denominator.

No it's not. YOU CAN BE FIXED.

I kind of wrote a blog (http://www.gamespot.com/users/JordanElek/show_blog_entry.php?topic_id=m-100-25890989) about it awhile ago.

Also, Gamespot sucks. How can you let a linking bug go for SO LONG. It's a primary feature of the editor! :evil:

#30 Posted by TheFallenDemon (13933 posts) -

GameSpot hasbetter things to do than fix the linking error, such as change the :cool: from 8) to :*cool:

Instead of fixing it you can now swear about how it doesn't work

Now there's a change that makes sense! I was getting tired of always fiddling with stuff when all I wanted to do was say the current used price of El Shaddai on Amazon in parentheses ($27.48)!

#33 Posted by roboccs (7028 posts) -
To heck with you all... Big Bang Theory is amazing. Sometimes it's good to have a show in your arsenal that requires no thought, has cheap humor, etc. I love the characters, they just make me laugh. Come to think of it... none of the shows I really follow require much thought. I think enough during the day and at work and with my family, etc... I would rather just enjoy TV by being purely lazy on all fronts.
#34 Posted by wiifan001 (18413 posts) -
Sheldon Cooper (Jim Parsons) is the reason I watch Big Bang Theory. Dialogue between Sheldon and Penny are among the funniest bits and they work so well together. Sheldon is the one factor that separates itself from being another 2 1/2 men with tacked on "nerd jokes." Amy F. Fowler is ruining his character :x She's the worst thing that has ever happened to that show :evil:
#35 Posted by Sepewrath (28724 posts) -
Well its not really a matter of the showing not being smart or anything like that, its just not funny. I assume the Sheldon character is suppose to be funny because he's a nerd that looks like 3PO, the narcissism, the effeminate mannerisms; but he's not funny. Every time I watch him, all I can think is "meh" And believe me, I'm not above the lowest common denominator, I'm a fan of Its Always Sunny, they keep it pretty lowbrow lol. Big Bang just doesn't click with me.

My roommate loves it and suggested it to me. But honestly I never had any interest in it initially, but I've heard good and bad things about it and decided to need to find for out myself.

I never seen a leopard before and at least you're not attempting to eat me now.

Well regardless of who likes what show, none will ever live up to the glory that was Seinfeld. Not necessarily the first few seasons but once that show found itself it was as brilliant as a show ever got to me.

I miss the mirror shield, I hope we will see it again for the next zelda game.
#42 Posted by Sepewrath (28724 posts) -
I would be up for it if they gave it some new features, besides reflecting light and energy. Like maybe the ability to mirror the world or take a reflection of the world and move it somewhere it else. Like say you take the reflection of a block go into another room and the reflection comes out the shield and holds down a switch. Speaking of Zelda a dungeon I would love to see them take a shot is, a haunted house. A combination of Snowpeak Ruins from TP and the Shadow Temple of OoT, though the latter with less focus on being a tomb.

Curb Your Enthusiasm says hi.

The shows I've been watching recently (beside's Curb) include Breaking Bad (best show on TV right now. Possibly the best show I've seen period), Dexter, Community, The Walking Dead, Louie, Modern Family, and Parks & Rec. And I've been told I need to watch Game of Thrones, Sons of Anarchy, Boardwalk Empire, Wilfred, Bored to Death, Life's Too Short and It's Always Sunny.

Anyone who says there's nothing good on TV anymore needs to shut up.

#44 Posted by Haziqonfire (36344 posts) -
I'm glad you agree about Breaking Bad, it's fantastic. I never thought I'd like drama type shows, but I love Breaking Bad, it's amazing. I like Modern Family as well and I still watch Community every week. Also, Arrested Development is coming back for another season before the movie releases which is going to be awesome. Game of Thrones is good. I've only seen a few episodes of it here and there, but now I'm reading the book and it's pretty good. I'm going to watch the first season once I'm done the book.
#45 Posted by _BlueDuck_ (11986 posts) -

I'm currently really in to Always Sunny and Curb Your Enthousiasm. They both remind me of a more dark and adult version of Seinfeld. The Curb comparisons are obvious but even with Always Sunny it's really just about a group of selfish, self-interested friends going about their lives. I likes it.

Otherwise I need to catch up on Dexter, Parks and Rec, and Breaking Bad. I still don't think I'll find another show that will top my all time favorite, being Battlestar Galactica. I wish the prequel Caprica wasn't cancelled.

#46 Posted by Sepewrath (28724 posts) -
I enjoyed Battlestar, though it started going a little nuts later in the series. It started getting way too metaphysical. And I love its Always Sunny, how they aren't in prison yet is absolutely amazing, I missed most of this season though, so I'm going to have to catch up.

I love Breaking Bad. I especially enjoyed the 4th season, which had some great character development, especially for Walt, Jesse, and Gus. I can't wait to see where they take the series in the last 16 episodes.

There are a few shows which I'm catching up on which are still on. I've geen going through Community pretty quickly. I've been going through Community pretty quickly. I'm in the second season and loving it. The first half of season 2 was my favorite period of the show for me. The second half has still been very good, but not quite as consistently brilliant as the first half. I've also been rewatching Dexter. I originally got up to the 3rd episode or so in the 5th season, and now I'm in the middle of the 4th season in my rewatch, so I'll be watching episodes I haven't seen pretty soon. Then there's the new version of Doctor Who, in which I'm nearing the end of season 4. I'm watching the 3rd season of Supernatural. And finally, I've decided to give True Blood a second chance. I originally stopped watching in season 2, after the horrible Marry Ann story (the rest of the season wasn't too bad, especially the story with Eric and Godric story). Maybe this time I'll be able to force myself to get through that season and enjoy the later seasons more...

There are actually a lot more shows that I've been watching that ended a while ago, but I don't really feel like listing them all. :P

#48 Posted by roboccs (7028 posts) -

Yeah, I can't watch a bunch of the shows mentioned because we don't have HBO or Showtime. And though Curb is quite good, to me Seinfeld was better. Also, I'm in the Championship in my Fantasy Football League with my buddies and it's intense!! I love football. Not to mention the Lions can clinch a playoff spot today!!!

#49 Posted by ZumaJones07 (16458 posts) -

And I've been told I need to watch...It's Always Sunny.

bob_newman
You need to get on this one first. My second favorite show after Arrested Development. I'm jealous you get to watch all 7 seasons straight through. :P

I love Breaking Bad. I especially enjoyed the 4th season, which had some great character development, especially for Walt, Jesse, and Gus. I can't wait to see where they take the series in the last 16 episodes.

I'm hoping for a Jesse vs Walt showdown because that'll be something to see. :D

I'm going to watch the first season once I'm done the book.Haziqonfire
This has been bugging me for a couple years now, and I have to ask other people about it....

Why don't you say "once I'm done WITH the book"??? I've seen a bunch of people leave out the "with" in the same exact context. I don't know if it's a Canadian thing or just a dialect thing or just a grammar deficiency thing, but it drives me crazy. I JUST WANT TO KNOW WHY!
