OWEN WOULD KILL ME IF I PUT THIS ENTIRE THING IN COMIC SANS.

TYPE RIDER IS JUST THE LIST OF REJECTED UNDERTALE SKELETONS

-Type Rider I was expecting to have a story like Braid or Limbo or something where there was a greater story in the background, but it's refreshing to see an edutainment game present differently than what we're used to.

-Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing/Mario Teaches Typing were some of the big games when I was a kid (at least that I could play while I'm in school). Thought I question how much that really helped us with typing since the whole "Home Row" thing never stuck. Like, as I type this it's half muscle memory and half me looking at my keyboard and jamming shit in as fast as I can and OH GOD I'M LOOKING AT MY HANDS WHILE TYPING I AM NOW MANUALLY BREATHING SOMEONE HELP.

-The Daigo Parry Video we were talking about is impressive even without knowing all the mechanics:

This article as goes into detail on how this moment works, but what I find fascinating is that Justin Wong could have won by DOING NOTHING. In a game like Magic The Gathering, you can see the level of strategy step by step. In Hearthstone, it also shows you the past few spells cast so you can go back and see what happened.

But in fighting game, all of that happens at a way faster pace. If you've ever had trouble pulling of a Shoryuoken consistently, imagine having to not only be able to pull it off on demand, but also devote mental energy to playing what is essentially MtG without the benefit of stopping.

For me, this moment would be HBox's Bracket Reset at this past EVO:

No offense to Armada, who gave Hungrybox a HELL of a run for his money and could have easily taken it, but he looks like someone or know someone who has unironically uttered the words "Cultural Marxism".

-Top tier meme:

-This is the Mew Card that was a promo for Pokemon The Movie 2000:

Translate:
Mew w/ 30 HP
2 PSI Energy- Psychic: 40 Damage

-80's Overwatch Setlist has at least 2 not 80s songs on the playlist, but it's still got tons of fucking awesome jams:
