Kajex@Technogeek- probably got popular when "Sonic" made references to Chris-Chan. That, or the shots fired at Jim Sterling. Either way, it's a hoot.06/12/2015 - 2:20pm

Goth_SkunkHA! I love this! "More men are making comics. But not all men! Some don't even WANT to. How do we create opportunities for them?" If the tongue was planted any harder in the cheek, it'd pierce right through.06/12/2015 - 2:32am
Goth_Skunk@Andrew: And I bet that, regarding the Men in Comics panel, nobody will object, because such an objection is a waste of time and effort. Unless the panelists act in bad faith.06/12/2015 - 2:21am

Andrew EisenHeh, well the odds that that exact phrase will ever be applicable again are rather slim!06/11/2015 - 6:31pm
PHX Corp@AE ok, I'll use that phrase next time06/11/2015 - 6:29pm
Andrew EisenThe "Women in Comics" panel at this year's Denver Comic Con raised a few eyebrows due to the fact that all the panelists were male. So, here's an all-female "Men in Comics" panel at this month's Indy PopCon! https://indypopcon.com/workshops-and-panels/06/11/2015 - 6:04pm
Andrew EisenAh. No offense but your phrasing wasn't clear (or maybe I'm just super tired). Perhaps something like this would have worked better: "This Looney Toons clip sums up my feelings on the Steam sale kerfuffle."06/11/2015 - 6:02pm
PHX Corp@AE The video I found(from BishopTJH) predates the Steam sale kerfuffle by several months, I posted it in the shoutbox as my response to the steam sales mishap(in terms of How the Videogame industry(Rockstar games, etc) made a stupid move)06/11/2015 - 5:48pm

Sora-ChanCon't: On the flipside, I love using my old PS2 controller for things like Skullgirls. I've tried with Xbox, I've tried with the Wii U Pro Controller, both force my hands into a odd position that don't work for fighting games.06/11/2015 - 2:00pm
Sora-Chan@MechaTama31: Agreed. One thing I do not like about games that use the standard cardinal button layout, is that a lot of games would switch between X and O to be confirm, heck I think I've seen some use Square. Very annoying they would not go standard06/11/2015 - 1:59pm

MechaCrashThey make their automated content things broad and sloppy on purpose. That way if they get nailed, they can just shrug and say "sorry, our bot was operating in good faith" and there's no problem.06/11/2015 - 1:17pm

Andrew EisenYeah, if it weren't for the tiny D-pad and misplaced Z button, the Gamecube pad would be my favorite controller. Certainly the most comfortable, I feel.06/11/2015 - 10:45am
Andrew EisenI use the action buttons more often so they should be in the "home" position.06/11/2015 - 10:44am
Andrew EisenI prefer the left stick in the upper position. It's the input I use more often so I prefer it in the "home" position where my thumb naturally rests. Same reason I prefer the right stick on the bottom.06/11/2015 - 10:44am
SuperKeegMecha: I know what you mean. I have played the PS1-3 and still couldn't tell you which side the square and circle are off the top of my head. The GC layout is perfect. Except for maybe the Z.06/11/2015 - 10:27am
MechaTama31I really liked how the face buttons on the Gamecube controller were very distinct. Lead to very intuitive button mapping, asthere is clearly a primary button, a secondary button, and two tertiary buttons.06/11/2015 - 7:48am

WonderkarpChristopher Lee Died D:06/11/2015 - 7:17am
WonderkarpI kinda hope Nintendo makes more wiiu games that use the gamecube port. Its just sitting there on my shelf for smash bros parties. It would be perfect for Twilight Princess HD06/11/2015 - 7:15am
Mattsworknameknow why dark souls never caught on the the main stream, it's got a difficulty curve like trying to break bricks with a wet pool noodle06/11/2015 - 4:08am
MattsworknameI think analog at the bottom is the best standard layout. the n64 was innovative for having an analog, but it's overall design always felt clunky to me. I still think the best controller right now is the ps4, touch pad or now. On a side note, i think I06/11/2015 - 4:07am
Sora-ChanWhen it comes to controllers I've prefered really two main layouts. Gamecube and Dualshock. Gamecube just feels good in the hands, where as the dualshock is closest to an old love: the SNES controller. It feels better to have the analogs at the bottom06/11/2015 - 12:40am
Andrew EisenEven explaining it to them they were just like "huh?" Argh. Stupid kids.06/10/2015 - 11:15pm
Andrew EisenAs for the N64 pad, I remember always seeing kids trying to play the demo kiosks in stores while holding the controller wrong. They'd grip it on the outsides and reach across to the stick with their thumb instead of grabbing the center prong.06/10/2015 - 11:13pm
Andrew EisenYeah, I hear a lot of people say the Gamepad is not comfortable to hold. Feels great to me. Maybe I just have the right sized hands.06/10/2015 - 11:10pm
MattsworknameThe wii u gamepad was an intersting idea but it just doesn't feel good as a controler to me, to large, to bulky, button layout isnt' comforatble. i prefer the pro controller myself.06/10/2015 - 11:06pm
MattsworknameI actually never could get to like the n64, I admire it's inovation, but it's actaul design felt silly to me and made some games almost unplayable. the 360 controllers layout was good, but it's actual contrustion really could have been better06/10/2015 - 11:05pm
Matthew Wilson@ae I like the 360s stick positioning06/10/2015 - 10:57pm
Andrew EisenI'm happy with the Wii U Gamepad but I'd prefer the buttons and right stick to switch places.06/10/2015 - 10:38pm
Andrew EisenN64 is actually my favorite. It be Gamecube if it weren't for the small D-pad and misplaced Z button. I agree 360 has the ideal layout but I was never that impressed with the controller itself. Crap D-pad but other than that it's just... fine.06/10/2015 - 10:37pm
MattsworknameAndrew, to be honest, i've often felt the 360 had the best over all controll layout, up till the ps4, that being said, my least favorites were the N64 and the Wii. Also not so good, the original dreamcast controller06/10/2015 - 10:17pm
Andrew EisenDoc - Eh, that's fine I guess.06/10/2015 - 9:46pm
Andrew EisenI can't read enough Japanese to confirm but it looks like, at the very least, owning the 3DS version will unlock the new characters in the Wii U version.06/10/2015 - 9:45pm
Andrew EisenMatt - Up to you. We're now at an interesting place. Want to talk about the relative merits of various game controllers? I'm all for that.06/10/2015 - 9:44pm
DocMelonheadSorry about thad Andy (it's okay if I call you Andy, right?)06/10/2015 - 9:27pm
Wonderkarpexample : Smash Bros. your characters from the 3ds dont unlock on the WiiU. The only real crossplay is transfering your Mii Characters.06/10/2015 - 9:23pm
Wonderkarpdoubt it, Matt. Nintendo doesnt really do Crossplay like that, and the 3ds game has Tetra while the WiiU will be Tetraless06/10/2015 - 9:23pm
WonderkarpI heard a Crazy Rumor that Nintendo is bringing back the Virtual Boy as a Oculus Rift Style VR goggles.06/10/2015 - 9:22pm

Andrew EisenWell, was there a stated reason for its closure or did it just up and vanish one day?06/10/2015 - 8:56pm
Andrew EisenMatt - Yeah, the Wii Remote did no favors to most games. I don't think anyone would argue that point.06/10/2015 - 8:55pm
Wonderkarpmaybe but there's much worse subreddits out there than that. If I listetd them here, Andrew or Fudge would have a hell of a time editing their language.06/10/2015 - 8:53pm
Andrew EisenNever heard of it but if it was pictures of overweight people with a tone of "look at these disgusting creatures, you don't want to be like those miserable, worthless sods, do you?", I can understand how it might have been problematic.06/10/2015 - 8:51pm

WonderkarpI know, its a bit effed up, but sometimes you gotta look at the hardcore negative examples of something to change your life and looking at that would make me not eat and exercise more. Its the same as a smoker looking at a effed up lung or a tracheotomoy06/10/2015 - 8:47pm
WonderkarpI'm a bit pissed at Reddit banning the Fatpeoplehate Subreddit. I used that subreddit to motivate myself to get healthier and lose weight. I looked at it every day for motivation and i lost a bunch of weight because of it. Freaking idiots06/10/2015 - 8:39pm
Mattsworknameperfectly fine as normal controllers. The same is not true of the wii mote.06/10/2015 - 8:33pm
MattsworknameAndrew, on the ps3 and ps4, IM actually in agreement, but more ont he sense that I think both the ps3 and ps4 controller were fine without the added stuff, and really shouldn't have needed the extra gimmicks. Even if you took them out, they'd still work06/10/2015 - 8:32pm

Andrew EisenAnd don't even get me started on how all PS4 games are required to use the Dual Shock 4's touch pad and light bar!06/10/2015 - 10:24am
Andrew EisenEven the games that don't actually use motion controls are still by proxy, on some base level required to use motion controls. I mean, why else would every game be compatible with the controller that shipped with the console?06/10/2015 - 10:19am
