    i went outside to run and the air was hazy with smoke

    there was a huge brushfire just west of where i am, near the everglades. supposedly as you get closer to the fire it gets so dark that it look like night, even at 10 in the morning

    so yes, its E3 time

    I tried to watch the latest unprofessional fridays in bed last night, but was banished by my wife because I couldn't stop laughing at Rorie's Tomodachi Life voice. Funny stuff this week!

    You NEVER have to "justify" a David Bowie reference. That is the most artistically unassailable part of that game.

    It looks like they were named Diamond Dogs before making comrades into diamonds? Unless the burial at sea scene took place before the cremation scene and they printed out tarps for Big Boss's new squad name

    I also misread those tarps as both Diamond Dongs and Diamond Droogs

    They were called Diamond Dogs because Kojima, like any sensible human being, is a Bowie nut.

    I'm trying to think of a game or anime that had Bowie in it. I know he's in MGS in spirit, but I feel like he's just plain been in a show. I know Freddy Mercury was in Cromartie

    fake edit: I googled 'bowie anime' and a giant bomb forum thread was the first result

    So Mario Kart 8 is amazing. Everything feels super right and super fun. The anti-grav sections are neat and going from like upside down grav to flying into water will never get old. The split screen looks and plays great too. Customizing your kart is a breeze and in like, three races everything was very comfortable. Giant bomb was being total babies about this game.

    Mario Golf is also super rad. I launched a ball into the air and it turned into a bomb and then exploded and dropped straight down and then caught on fire as it did a super back spin to get me a chip in and an eagle. Like, what else could you want?

    Nintendo is doing everything right right now.

    Also everything in that Phantom Pain trailer, barring the Quiet ass shot, looks amazing and I am super excited for PP. I hope the release date is not too far out.

    I'm actually hoping for more gameplay from future TPP trailers

    This one didn't do anything for me at all. Bunch of out of context cutscenes clips over a song for 4 minutes. Eeehhh

    The trailer was all about setting the tone for the game and I think it did a wonderful job of that.

    They basically already did the gameplay trailer as far as I am concerned, and it was called ground zeroes.

    Not liking it doesn't make them babies

    They had plenty of real complaints with the dumb ones

    that's scary as heck, but it reminded me of the game I was actually thinking of!

    Maybe it's the same one, but It's one that I think Dave Vinny and maybe Drew were playing. It was a weird polygonal adventure game that looks similar to that one there.

    edit: Yep, that's the one

    I need to play Mario Golf more. People are talking about all this crazy shit going on while all I've experienced is regular-ass golf. Fun golf, but golf. Golf.

    This sucks. His sitcoms might not have been high art, but they were hilarious.

    How were they being babies about Mario Kart 8?

    Is it the way that the one who reviewed it has been playing it for weeks even after the review and lauds virtually every aspect of the game aside from the battle mode?

    No

    The head is too different to be Rex

    But it doesn't look like the original Metal Gear either.

    The Young Ones was genuinely brilliant.

    I'm not sure it's aged particularly well though.

    I hope Microsoft gives Fantasia some time on stage after bonin' Harmonix by removing the Kinect from the box.

    John T. Drake did a lot of "Everything's totally cool, definitely" PR after that but I have a feeling when that news came out several people in the HMX offices screamed "fuck" simultaneously.

    The tweets that came from them immediately after the announcement did not seem entirely in jest.

    So yeah I have to imagine they were feeling pretty burned.

    I am still early on but most of the crazy stuff I have found so far is through doing the challenges.
