    Makes sense for it to do something like Exeggutor did... so make its neck non-existant, and turn its head into bananas. Don't really know nor care to make up the rest lol

    I'm not really sure why you'd want to play minecraft with non-local, non-same platform people on a device other than a computer.

    Computer has all of the good mods and QoL updates, plus a M&K is generally better for the more menu based parts of minecraft (which if you're going to be playing with friend for any period of time, is a lot of what you'll be doing).

    Unless the plan is to update every single, non-playstation version with the exact same features, I don't really see the benefit from this.

    As an actor, I have had almost zero exposure to him, as I'm not American. From what I gather from what limited exposure I have, which is bad impressions from other people, he seemed to be pretty shit.

    As a person, if the sexual assaults he has been alledged to have committed are legitimate, he is an absolute arsehole who needs to burn.

    None, because I already own a GameCube and a Game Boy Player. Unless GameCube LANs became popular, I wouldn't need to purchase any hardware for the GameCube again.

    With that said, I'd pay more for a GameCube than I would for most other consoles from the GameCube generation. PS2s were so mass produced for so long that they're easy to get for cheap, the Dreamcast has no exclusives remaining as they're all on PC or GameCube, and the Xbox was shit.

    To be honest, they aren't that hard to find ( I see many at my local flea market ) and they all go for the same price of a NES, SNES, N64, Sega Genesis, PS2 which ranges between $35 to $50 depending on the condition. If it was still in the sealed box though, I'd gladly pay over $100+ easy. Sadly, the only N console I don't currently own D: but looking to get one soon for a few certain game's.

    probably genetics
    Tesla seems fun


    If we're not using the stupid standard of "for it's time," I'd have to say Mario Galaxy (arguably 2). Aside from the stupid camera controls because no one that made the Wii knew what modern gaming was, the platforming was pretty excellent, the open maps allowed for some exploration without derailing. Most of the different planet areas you went to were at least somewhat unique. The speed running comets were pretty dumb, but I'm not the kind of person that likes to speed run games so it might just be me. Most of the later Mario games went back to 2D or made very little use of 3D anyway (3D Land springs to mind). Galaxy was the last game I felt actually elevated Mario platformers in any meaningful way — something that pretty much everything Mario since has completely failed to do.

    Them being a person. Were you going for something deep here? Think it needed to be fleshed out a little bit or reworded for it to have the best effect, cos even I cba to give a solid answer for this one.

    I think Adolf Hitler would actually be an interesting one. You could delve deeper into his reasoning for his beliefs, any personal secrets and other things that may have caused him to be as he was, and so on.

    Otherwise, I may pick someone on the basis of their knowledge allowing me to further myself personally and/or professionally. Someone like Steve Wozniak or Elon Musk would fit that bill.

    My favourite? Probably Super Mario World. I prefer the gameplay of World to almost every other 2D Mario game before or since, and I feel like it feels better than a fair chunk of the 3D games too.

    Best? As xdevo said above, the Super Mario Galaxy games. The first one set the basis and was solid platforming overall. The second one's only nice addition was the Cloud Mario form, giving a slightly floatier Mario that also felt good to control. The Yoshi additions were fairly poor, in my opinion. I felt like he was added for the sole reason of "OH MY GOD IT'S YOSHI, TAKE MY MONEY."

    It should be noted that I have yet to play Super Mario 3D World, so that game was omitted from my answer completely.

    Genetics, life experiences, the way they were raised and how that meshes with their basic personality.

    I feel having the knowledge of any renowned scientist would make most college classes trivial, so pick one.

    Super Mario 6-


    Well fine.

    It's probably a tie between either Galaxy game, though I consider them both the same game as 2 is essentially an expansion pack. It was just as linear as every other 2 or "2.5D" Mario but the gimmick of every big structure having its own special field of gravity made it great. I mean 3D world had nice, polished mechanics for everything 64 had as well, but it's just really linear and aside from cats didn't exactly do anything special with the platforming. It was still a tight game, just not inventive at all which dooms it to critics who want something revolutionary every game.

    If we're talking strictly 2D mario games, I'd have to give it to Super Mario World. SM3 comes really close too, and maybe it beats it out if nostalgia is getting in the way for me, but the special maps of SMW were great.

    Fuck those pull star things in galaxy games though, the ones where you click on them with the wii mote and they drag you through the air. Satan must have paid a visit to the development team for those things to exist.

    Their relation with other people. Humans are well, social creatures, we take from others and develop our personality like that. We're like a jigsaw puzzle that has pieces fitted in from everyone we have or had known so yeah, that's my answer.

    Well to be honest, I can't really say much about this game but what I did play of it was pretty nice. I only ever got to the Quick League which I think is the second league you face in the actual game itself and then suddenly, it stopped working.

    Overall, I think it's a really cool game, I'd actually get back into it if I could ever be bothered.

    I decided to uninstall the app after I got my first golden karp. IDK why but the keep tapping to win kinda strategy didn't appeal (like, even in the pond, you don't need to swipe to feed your karp even, just tap...). Though, I would definitely that it does appeal to a lot of people that like casual games and then, then there are kids!

    I'd rather play stuff like Pokemon TCG on my mobile which unluckily doesn't work on my phone, gfg.

    You tap to activate abilities, you only need to move your finger over a piece of food to have your Pokémon eat it, and you only need to tap the screen to advance text otherwise. I don't understand your criticism.
    I understand the point about it being simple, and clearly more aimed towards a casual audience, but I don't understand it being "keep tapping to win".

    My initial reaction was to laugh. I'm a horrible person.

    My second, and lasting, reaction is to call the airline some sort of name, and tell it to buck its ideas up. With that said, unless he had made provisions before getting on board the flight such as checking with the airline and/or airport, it could very well have been his own fault. I can't be bothered reading more into it to see whose fault it is, so I'll leave it at that.

    Re: Magikarp Jump, it's a fun little time sink to check on every now and then. Nothing great, but I view it as a less effort Tamogachi that gives a sense of progression. It's nice.

    "Mr Kijima is an experienced traveller, and head of the Japan Accessible Tourist Center, a non-profit organisation which catalogues accessibility issues for tourists to Japan."

    The irony of this made me laugh. At least after this it raised more awareness of the fact that airports - specifically planes I guess - need to be wheelchair friendly.

    If you didn't get it before, I meant that the game was a bit too simple for me.

    Sorry, not sorry. I chuckled at it initially. I was watching Mortal Kombat fatalities on YT, when your post came up Joey. It was kinda like a welcoming change.

    Next thing was a brief angry react at both the person and the airline. At the person because he could have picked an airline that suited him better, that he could've just bluntly refused to do so or rather than hurt himself more, back away. At the airline for enforcing strange-ass rules, but mostly this...

    Seriously dude? That's a person disabled from waist-down on a wheelchair, it wouldn't have hurt you if you picked the man up and got him to his fucking seat. Where was the humanity there?

    I'm going to keep going with the world news things, I'm quite liking it. Please note that all articles will come from BBC, as CNN and FOX (which btw, remember when Fox News was a fucking meme?) are a bit too polarized due to US politics and BBC serves as the current middle ground. That being said...

    Question for June 29th, 2017: Compared to the last one, what are your thoughts on Trump's new travel ban?
