    I would never eat that if given the choice between warm & cold pizza.

    I'd microwave a pizza before I'd eat it cold, even.

    Oh I've got one hell of a skill challenge for Oristok now, @Huntera

    also my thoughts re: yosuke are that he's a fun cool guy who has a bunch of character flaws that seem to include being a little sexist and possibly a little homophobic but in the "i am still a highschool student and not a magically enlightened being and am still not living in the real world yet so I treat things that make me uncomfortable less delicately than I should" sort of way

    which describes most everyone i knew in highschool! they grew out of it and one day yosuke will too and he will still be a fun guy who's passionate about things and we'll have cool bbqs

    it's all in my fan fic

    All that's totally true and valid

    The complaints about Yosuke tend to be at a narrative level

    Like his portrayal is realistic and reasonable for someone his age but also he never gets smacked down for being a jerk, which creates the impression that the game is tacitly approving of his attitude

    I'm not sure that's the case, Kanji threatens to beat the shit out of him at least once and I'm sure Naoto gets really pissed off with him at some point as well.

    Also, (Yosuke social link spoilers):
    by level 10 he's all "I'm a messed up jerk, please knock some sense into me, Charlie".

    I'd agree that the game never explicitly addresses some of the complaints made about him here.
    But like T4CT said, he's a 15 year old guy, they're universally terrible.
    And will probably stay terrible for a few years yet.

    Part of the problem with Yosuke (and p4 in general) is how the social link plots are isolated from the rest of the story
    so Yosuke can hit rank 10 early on and have all this character growth but then go right back to being a dick in the main story

    P5 should try and incorporate the Social Links into the story.

    Like how in P4
    Dojima still hauls you in for the suspicious letter even if you've sorted out his issue of being the World's Most Medocire Dad and helped his daughter out with everything in her life.

    My nephew helped me find a bunch of a jade animal statues in Sleeping Dogs. I think I have all the ones I can so far-- the last three are inside missions or something. Wei learned a ton of moves and a had some some surprisingly well-written conversations with his master. The arm breaker combo and the leg breaker combo make me wince. I'm relieved the noise isn't right. I had to take some time away from the TV when I watched Ong Bak. That movie had the noise you hear when you break a limb down just about perfectly.

    The validity of cold pizza depends a lot on what toppings you got.

    Also it need to actually be cold, cold pizza is not at all the same as lukewarm/room temperature pizza

    Pineapple in my opinion is the bane of cold pizza.

    Olives, of course, are the king.

    Pineapple's not my favourite, as it doesn't go super well with olives, which are my favourite.

    But they have their place. Goatmon get better opinions or as a resident of just-subtropical Australia I am uniquely positioned to fill your house with pineapples.

    Also real quick aside re: MGS2
    Always bothered the fuck out of me that Solidus goes "200 years ago today they signed the declaration of independence"

    and like even 12 years ago as a Canadian teenager I knew that was bullshit and that the game didn't take place in 1989. Solidus makes it sound like an exact figure but really he's off by 20 years and this is basic historical fact WAIT A MINUTE THE PATRIOTS HOLY SHIT

    I'm not sure why the game taking place in 1989 would make it correct, since the document was signed in 1776, not 1789. And in any case, he was probably also wrong because the document wasn't signed on July 4, it was simply dated July 4 because that was when they could get it printed out. Independence day is actually July 2, and the document wasn't even signed until August 2.

    The game would have to take place in 1976. 1989 would be the 200th anniversary of the constitution going into effect.
