I'm not doing anything. What makes you think I'm doing something? Why are you always asking me what I'm doing? Why are you all so suspicious of me?

Nothing. :sweating:

*grumble, grumble* Still didn't get the maximum score in KQ2+. I keep missing 4 points somehow. Where can I find a point list? I thought I got everything.

Still, nevertheless, it's a beautiful game! :)

- Listening to this new Taylor Swift song which is seriously terrible. I realize Swift isn't exactly a paragon of musical revolution and highbrow composition, but I've enjoyed a handful of her works as the fun, light, and almost nostalgic wa (hey, I remember being a teenager in love and it was all omg), but at some point her songs really do need to grow up and graduate from high school already. Right now, they're kind of sounding like sixth-year seniors.

- Watching/Listening to Chuggaaconroy's Lets Plays.

- Is feeling surprisingly impressed with her Farfetch'd called CH'DING in FireRed (although, in my mind, I call him "Roger" to reference Space Quest) as he's pretty good so far.

You know... after watching Spoony's Ultima Retrospective atleast twice, I've realized something.

If it came down either playing Mask of Eternity or Ultima IX... I'd rather play Mask of Eternity now. Atleast Connor is going on a noble quest that makes sense (albeit leaving a trail of blood in his wake), and actually seems intelligent (from what I've seen from Nidoking's Lets Play) and wants to actually help save his home and friends.

- Watching some of Spoony's stuff.

- Doing laundry.

- Is thinking of doing a themed run for Leafgreen with the theme being people from Phoenix Online forums! I was originally going to do ThatGuyWithTheGlasses but I like too many people there to decide on a team. Then again, I like a lot of people here too!

Does anyone here have a favorite Kanto Pokemon?

So this may be a can of worms, but I'm curious, GrahamRocks!--do you have particular thoughts on Spoony's departure from TGWTG?

Well, while I am sad that he left, I can understand why he decided to leave. It seems that most of his fans admit that they don't watch TGWTG much anyway, and say he's better off without them because they're apparently horrible people.

I am not one of those people.

If he wants to leave, let 'im leave and take a break. Besides, it's not like he can't see anyone from that site ever again, or do crossovers with them. It's not like he's forbidden to return, they just won't post his videos on the site anymore. As for the controversy concerning him and Lupa? I never believed it anyway.

Luckily, they all seem to be taking it pretty well and things seem to have calmed down. Spoony even said that he's proud to work alongside these people for To Boldly Flee despite all this.

Me, I personally like both Spoony and the majority of TGWTG equally. Speaking of To Boldly Flee, I'm excited for that!

Glad to hear you are a sane-minded person about it!

I found ThatGuy via Spoony's videos, but I watch the TGWTG stuff more than his at this point. I hadn't been loving Spoony's most recent videos before the split, admittedly, but I've never played Ultimata, so there's that. But yes, I'm glad to see things seem to have calmed down on both sides. Though it really did seem to me that Spoony made some inappropriate comments and sure went out with a twitter rage quit to be sure. I'm not saying I'll never watch Spoony's stuff again, but there's that & it just hasn't been on media I know/enjoy/love to hate lately.

I am also looking forward to To Boldly Flee!

It's Ultima, not Ultimata. And that series Retrospective has been going on for awhile, and you're just now noticing it?

Anyone else watch Counter Monkey? the Tandem's Last Ride one is awesome!

Yes, Katie, I am one of the very rare breeds of fan: the Sane Fan.

Speaking of fans, I gotta ask two questions:

1. What is everyone complaining about Mass Effect 3's ending/s?

2. I'm reading about the endings without context, so, does your comrades being "synthesized" a good thing? I suspect so, but I never played the games.

In case you're wondering who I follow on TGWTG (Spoony aside): Paw, PushingUpRoses, Nostalgia Critic, Linkara (my favorite!) Phelous, Film Brain (don't see why he gets so much hate), Obscurus Lupa, Oancitizen, Blockbuster Buster.

Say, I'm watching the 200th episode AT4W and it's bothering me that I can't find out what that muic is at the beginning (when Linkara ays the line, "I am so lost!")

Need more forum Pokemon, please! I have Dragonair. Starting Leafgreen, picking girl as usual, name is Lork and rival is Delling.

Oops. I know that--that was a typo on my part, re: Ultima!

It has been--and thus for a while now I've not been terribly interested in the videos. :) Before the Ultima 9 one I did more or less miss them or just didn't pay attention, and I think maybe they were mixed in with other videos as well, rather than being the only thing going up.

1. Haven't played it yet. No spoilers please!

On TGWTG, I follow the Nostalgia Critic, NChick (& Maven), Paw, Blockbuster Buster (moreso when he does reviews than his 'storyline' stuff), Lupa, & Phelous. Though I don't watch all the videos they all put out, either. I've enjoyed Linkara's Power Rangers videos, and find the whole franchise weirdly intriguing having never quite been a follower of the show.

So... you watch HoPR, but not Atop The Fourth Wall? Not a big 'storyline' person?
