    Taft would often order the "pick any three presidents meal deal" at his favorite diner chain

    Why not just buy some nuts and bolts to replace the broken ones?

    I liked the reaction to "isn't this a bit sexist, immature and demeaning - a real trend in lots of modern (especially Japanese) games?"

    That isn't a trend. Being sexist and immature is practically part and parcel of games since they got realistic enough to put boobies on women in the games.

    Eh, depends on the type of game. Some try a modicum of subtlety in this area. But beat ‘em ups and the like. Just whoa all up in your face. They take it to an almost ironic level.

    i still think bayonetta is probably at least a little bit ironic

    like, they are purposefully being ridiculous while knowing it is ridiculous

    i don't think they're sitting there going "man this chick is so awesome and badass," as much as they are laughing at its absurdity while enjoying the brutality.

    i hope, at least.

    i know that DMC is definitely ironic about its ridiculous protagonist, so there's hope

    That's because he's the size of any three other presidents.

    This is why you can never become President, Thanatos. If you did, we'd have had two gigantically fat Presidents, which would confuse everyone. Whenever someone would mention "the fat President", someone would inevitably ask, "Which one? Taft or Thanatos?".

    "The one that made it more than a week."

    Assuming, of course, that Than would.

    Irony is easy and requires zero personal investment. If it bombs, you can just pretend you weren't trying to be ironic.

    It's one of the lazier forms of humor.

    that's fine, i think that the "silly action game that is so rad but silly" is overdone at this point

    i think there is market saturation

    I can probably count the number of them with serious storylines that weren't absolutely awful on one hand.

    I've found that the best way to reset a sleep schedule is to just pull an all nighter and then go to bed the next day at a reasonable hour. You basically just roll your internal clock over.
