  • 00:51:02: @twelveicings So far? It's "wittily" referenced Final Fantasy 1, Zelda 1, Mega Man 2 and Dragon Quest V. All while breaking the 4th wall.
  • 00:51:38: @twelveicings And when I say "reference"? I mean "Dr. Dic (get it!?) saying "DASH BOOTS COMPLETED! GET YOUR WEAPONS READY!"
  • 02:06:21: Either be retro or not, 3D Dot Game Heroes. If you're retro, you can't reference Demon's Souls.
  • 04:14:56: So... is there a media wing to NASCAR's Hall of Fame? If there is, I know Ed Hinton's the first inductee. http://bit.ly/bqlp6p
  • 05:36:00: @DanaTaggart Here's my question: where does the line exist between "being" a Libertarian and making that party line politically possible?
  • 06:11:02: I never knew a simple thing like a pulled muscle by the back ribcage could be so fucking PAINFUL. I'd trade this for another concussion.
  • 07:03:21: @DanaTaggart I mean from a position standpoint. How do we turn "I would vote against the Civil Rights Bill because it has wider...
  • 07:03:51: @DanaTaggart implications on private business owners than intended" into NOT being "I hate black people" in the eyes of the public?
  • 07:04:24: @DanaTaggart I guess the easier question would be, is the public ready to not be so knee-jerk that our core philosophy kills us politically?
  • 07:05:22: Jesus H. Christ Esq., I can't even play PC games properly! I never thought I would get an injury that kept me from doing *THIS* job!
  • 07:12:11: @dmataconis Do they even *mention* the Constitution that they are *SWORN* to defend? All civilized countries I can think of have this law.
  • 07:13:18: @dmataconis It's why I'm a dual Canadian/American citizen. I was born in Canada, I'm a Canadian citizen by birthright.
  • 07:17:08: @dmataconis So in other words, if Arizona put this law in, the Supreme Court would gleefully strike this down?
  • 07:17:46: Remember, kiddies: I didn't get a Facebook because I wanted one. I got a Facebook because it's the only way to talk to half of you idiots.
  • 07:18:44: It's also the same reason I have to use .doc, Windows, and every other proprietary nightmare: because you're all lazy and stupid. :D
  • 07:19:42: @DanaTaggart We're too lazy. We need a nanny, when we forget that WE have the power. We don't just say "Walmart discriminates against...
  • 07:20:16: @DanaTaggart women, I'm not going to shop there!", we either go "Walmart discriminates against wom-- ooh, sale on socks!" or "the...
  • 07:20:40: @DanaTaggart government should do something about this... after I'm done buying $5 DVDs!". We have the power, and we willingly forfeit it.
  • 07:21:55: @DanaTaggart We're too fat and happy to do any research for ourselves. That's why we're in this mess. Success has gotten to our heads.
  • 08:09:23: RT @the_pc_doc: Symantec to buy VeriSign ... ugh ...
  • 10:11:53: RT @hesster56: Awesome Google FTW! And its playable! RT @Banger_: hahahaha go to Google. now.
  • 10:13:49: I hate to admit it, but when I got the trade demo for 3D Dot Heroes yesterday, I felt kinda badass. #mygameiscoolerthanyourgame
  • 10:38:16: @SPBowley You're doing better than I am. And I'm supposed to be a professional.
  • 11:07:18: RT @diehardgamefan: Custom Pac-Man Board Playable on Google http://bit.ly/c4lXwy
  • 11:17:15: RT @Jim_Sterling: Okay, really? Packman is a trending topic? We're calling it PACKMAN? Is everybody *fucking* retarded?
  • 12:48:51: @the_pc_doc Honestly? You would do just as well getting the TweetDeck app. Though it occasionally crashes.
  • 20:18:00: @dmataconis He had to. He was walking into a snake pit.
  • 20:19:02: @raywashere Two words: caller. ID.
  • 20:25:08: #FF @lukekarrys One of my web developer guru follows. Knows his shit. We'll forgive his unfortunate association with Arizona.
  • 20:26:03: @Halley5 Thank God. At least someone in that party can think for himself.
  • 20:27:11: #FF @TheRealBell - Another web developer, and the World's Last Kubuntu Beacon. We'll forgive the fact that his state has Michelle Bachmann.
  • 20:29:14: #FF @ValleyIndy + @mozactly - These two have single-handedly changed the way the Naugatuck Valley gets news. Amazing work from 2 people.
  • 20:30:11: @Halley5 Baby steps! Baby steps! The problem is that both sides are like the Brits: they never go against the whip. Figuratively + literally
  • 20:30:26: RT @dmataconis: I supported Rand Paul in the primary. I am supporting him in the General Election. And I'm neither ashamed nor am I back ...
  • 20:31:14: @Jim_Sterling Got you one better: a forced update for one of my game *added* a bug. I can't revert it. I <3 the 7th generation!
  • 20:31:43: @Jim_Sterling And considering it lets runs on third outs count, it's a game breaking bug in MLB '10 The Show. It broke the game.
  • 20:34:58: #FF - @mrdatahs - Education tech writer at ZDNet. Has great ideas, defends them beautifully. Even if he relies on Google Apps too much. :)
  • 20:36:42: Casual fans won't get it, but I do: this is the biggest news to hit the NHL series since the right analogue stick. http://bit.ly/cf6yx4
  • 20:38:28: #FF @jdeloma / @jamiedeloma - Another CT newsman, and teacher at Quinnipiac U. Very old-school for such a young man.
  • 20:39:07: @dmataconis Shit. They just gave the election to Linda McMahon.
  • 20:57:19: @Halley5 Palin, to me, was done a long time ago. She pisses me off because she's using honest, scared people for her own gain.
  • 20:58:25: @Halley5 The Libertarians needs it too. I don't know how Wayne Allyn Root and Bob Barr got to be our biggest names.
  • 20:59:02: @twelveicings ... Dude, I may have to get the PS3 version now. XD
  • 20:59:29: @DanaTaggart That sounds like something I'd hear on an Outkast album.
  • 21:01:19: @twelveicings Well, let me know if you get it, if you do, I'll get the PS3 version to play you~ (though I prefer 360 for sports)
  • 21:03:18: #FF @edropple Because he links me shit like this: http://bit.ly/cwZP4h
  • 21:04:34: @Halley5 We have to be careful what we wish for. The people of Cuba wanted change, too. That's what Guevara and Castro gave them.
  • 21:05:34: #FF @hesster56 + @gorrie - DHGF writers who are interesting when not talking about videogames as well.
  • 21:06:37: #FF @raywashere - Like me, but not as hairy: IT guy, hockey referee, generally interesting dude. We'll forgive his Yankee allegiances.
  • 21:07:40: #FF @burning_phoneix - Fellow DHGF writer, football freak, and personal friend of mine. THE source for Asian football discussion.
  • 21:08:17: #FF @Aitherion - Another former FESSer, and all around cool dude. Known this guy since he was like 12. Someone employ him!
  • 21:10:31: @jperlow Just have them do what XKCD did with their UniXKCD pa-- wait, where did it go!? Booooo!
  • 21:12:15: C'MON, CALGARY HITMEN! Represent the WHL! #reallyasaskatoonbladesfan
  • 21:15:41: #FF @JVB + @HeroicSuperman - Check out their Post Game Report podcast on iTunes. I've met them at press junkets. They're great dudes.
  • 21:16:20: @jperlow I'm not sure if using Linux as a punishment is the best way to spread the word...
  • 21:18:48: #FF @DanaTaggart - High ranking member in VA's Libertarian party, and a founder of the Tea Party movement. Great person, very passionate.
  • 21:21:31: #FF @ErikaS981 - Former HS classmate of mine, one of the 2 or 3 I still actually like, which is high praise! All around awesome chick.
  • 21:32:02: Nominate whoever you want, CT Democrats and Republicans. I'm just going to vote for Peter Schiff anyway. #ctsenate
  • 21:34:41: #FF @Psymin1 - DHGF writer. This is proof that if you want it, you can have it. He was a fan of the site, and showed his mettle as a writer.
  • 21:35:35: #FF @BrentMayne - Being a catcher, I simultaneously marvel at the things he teaches that I taught myself, and wonder why other coaches don't
  • 21:36:33: #FF @DerbyCT - My home! Though I'm VERY disappointed in my city right now. #ourbudgetsucks #stoplayingoffteachersdamnit
  • 21:37:14: @SPBowley I can predict Sterling! He will say something stupid every game! And Waldman will shame herself! Baseball IS predictable!
  • 21:38:03: #FF @Samarecarm - She's private, but that's OK. Anyone who willingly sleeps with me HAS to be a good person! <3
  • 21:40:08: #FF @dekunda - Sammies! Former FESSer, big videogame fan. Like JRPGs, Atlus, or Mega Man? Follow her, and squee with her.
  • 21:41:30: #FF @SPBowley - THE authority on southern CT high school sports. A gruff voice away from being George DeMayo. We'll forgive the Yankee love.
  • 21:43:14: #FF @dmataconis - Model Libertarian: actually follows the letter of the Constitution. Though he's another %@^&ing Yankee fan.
  • 21:43:47: #FF @jperlow - Tech writer for ZDNet. Want to have some fun? Get him pissed off about something, and grab some popcorn.
  • 21:44:38: #FF @ryanarraine Security expert for ZDNet, does amazing work there with Dancho. Another Goddamned Yankee fan.
  • 21:46:30: #FF @BigSamTweets - The Samuraiter! Big fanfiction writer, JRPG fan. The only person I know who likes Spectral Force Genesis.
  • 21:48:14: #FF @TheGoalieGuild - This is the only person I know of (other than me) that talks goaltending and *knows* what he's talking about.
  • 21:56:59: Jesus Christ! Brandon vs. Calgary is in OT! San Jose vs. Chicago is in OT! I NEED PICTURE IN PICTURE! :(
  • 21:57:35: RT @connpost: Linda McMahon wins the GOP senate nomination: http://bit.ly/9z6Nnn (Hear that, CT? No primaries for us! We can't handle it!)
  • 21:58:05: @Halley5 Wayne Allyn Root bothers me because he's just a Republican using the LP for his own fame. I hate those types.
  • 21:58:27: @Halley5 Here's the question: can we, the people, really govern ourselves? Before you answer that question, take a walk into WalMart.
  • 21:58:53: @Halley5 Remember that the people you see there are technically government in a democracy. This is the big concern.
  • 22:00:13: FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK. Not only did Brandon win, I missed the goal! #gettingpipinmynexttv
  • 22:00:42: @jperlow On the one hand, the implication is chilling. On the other? I just realized I'm doing the same thing to a friend. So it works!
  • 22:01:30: @Halley5 In a crowded field? Not if you want fame. Beter to be the king of a small business than a middle manager in a corporation.
  • 22:02:49: @Halley5 Being a realist kinda sucks. XD
  • 22:05:29: @Halley5 That's because to most other people, the Libertarians are just "those racist teabaggers". Honestly? I think he sticks,
  • 22:05:53: @Halley5 because he's actually an old school Republican. The new school types are just Neo-Cons.
  • 22:13:08: I think Dustin Byfuglien might win the damn Smythe Trophy! He's almost singlehandedly killed TWO playoff teams, inc. #1 + 3 seeds.
  • 22:21:19: @jperlow I'm wondering if Linux is really the answer, then. Because he's going to tinker + break it. "I edited xorg.conf. Is that bad?"
  • 22:27:08: @Aitherion She's an establishment Republican with a short history of combating the press. The only thing she's changing is the seat's gender
  • 22:31:10: @SPBowley He can use what he learned in Vietnam against her. Oh, wait...
  • 23:11:14: I bitch about news sites putting up paywalls, yet I've been an ESPN Insider subscriber for five years. The lesson, as always: I'm dumb.
