WTF? How is it possible to dislike Mega Man X?

I'm beginning to suspect that 3 guys who've seen terrible movies upwards of 20 times may not have the best taste.

The original Mega Man X had about as much story as the later NES Mega Man games, so I think it's just a case of, "I haven't played this poo poo in 10 years and forgot everything about it," which is fine. It's only past about X3 or X4 where the game starts turning into a stonefaced anime saga.

Ninety-one? There are ninety other "Tiger Drivers"? Do any involve actual tigers, or driving?


Their Nolte episodes are my favorite dumb thing.

And now I'll be sad tomorrow when I check my podcast feed and realize I've already listened to this week's episode.

They obviously don't care about or follow video games so I can't really fault them for having unusual opinions on them. If anything it's kind of refreshing to have guys doing a podcast on such a nerdy topic while still having such a huge blindspot.

Eric's joke that Canada gained independence in 1982 is actually mostly true:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Patriation

quote:

Patriation was the political process that led to Canadian sovereignty, culminating in 1982. Until that date, Canada was governed by a constitution composed of British laws that could be changed only by acts of the British parliament, albeit only with the consent of the Canadian government.

The patriation process saw the provinces granted influence in constitutional matters and resulted in the constitution being amendable by Canada only and according to the Canadian amending formula, with no role for the Parliament of the United Kingdom. Hence, patriation is associated with the acquisition of full sovereignty.

Over the weekend I was watching TCM and I caught maybe 75% of a movie where these kids murder people. Their ring leader is a blonde girl and she gets two boys to take a bat to her dads head and make it look like he fell on some stairs. One kid takes a .357 revolver to a couple fuckin in a van. In short, this movie was amazing. Having a hell of a time running down the title of the drat thing!

Is this something up WHMs alley?

She was a sword glinting in the depths of night, a lance of light piercing the darkness. There would be no mistakes this time.


This new episode is pretty funny, but I can only listen to it in short bursts because the sheer volume of Nolte impressions is literally hurting my ears.

EDIT: "Volume", in every sense of the word.

Was it about kids who were born under a certain star sign that meant they didn't have souls? That sounds like a movie RLM covered once.

I think it was just the blonde girl ring leader who was born without a soul. The other kids she Manson Family'd were just assholes.

AMERICAN soccer fans are the anime fans of sports. Everywhere else in the world, they're just the default.

Personally, I would like America to host the Euros at some point, just for 1) American soccer fans to see loving ultras up close 2) ultras see what happen when "take no poo poo" American law enforcement gets a hold of them.
