  • Keen to give this a listen.

    I don’t suppose I’ll ever understand the disdain for nostalgia that’s slowly crept into fandom like it’s suddenly a fashion accessory that’s gone out of being hip and cool. The alternative is the constant feed the monster mentality that only commercially-driven media outlets (ie newspapers) seem to get any decent return from. I like reading the newspaper but of course not every bit of the news in there is going to leave a smile on my face. I don’t want to have to be the same with media I can choose to engage with 🙂

  • I feel like Virtual Boy was more of a portable console, packaging-wise, rather than a handheld. Even though it was basically a Super Game Boy 😛

    If Nintendo abandoned dedicated machines and just made a smartphone instead, I would probably just have to drop them entirely. Which would be great for my backlog I guess, but I would still hate to have to do it. Though I did come close to skipping the 3DS on launch, with how expensive it was initially.

    I’d totally try the 300 year old cheese. I mean it’s supposed to get better with age, right? It must be amazing by now!
