Video Game Chat / Re: Twisted New Disney Game

I've never owned a Disney character game, but based on the few first details it sounds cool enough for me to consider buying it. Of course, that's just these first few details though, like I said. Need to keep my eye on it.

Incredibly smart? Elaborate.

Well, if you listen to what he has to say, he knows what he's talking about. He's a dick, but he still makes compelling arguments and backs it up with evidence and statistics.

Wasn't he in Mario Party 6 or something as well? (Not that that's covered in Mariopedia yet)

I dunno, I just have a lot of respect for people who can pull off being total jerkoffs while still being incredibly smart as well.

I always take them right before going to bed since I have a mental qualm against being dirty before laying in a covered up space for multiple hours without moving, on a daily basis. Just the thought of laying in my own filth for that period of time skeeves me out.

Also, not taking showers in the AM saves a lot of time.

Also on topic, what's your fastest speed-shower time? Mine's 2:56. That's a full shower; body, hair, face, etc.

Nice. Let's form our own clique then. We'll call it Team Mega-Awesome Extreme.

And now you're trying to tell me that based solely on the fact that everyone else likes a game I'll like it too. I can't decide whether or not peer pressure is more or less unethical than making up data, but it's close either way.

I don't care about whether or not the game is good. AlphaDream makes some pretty good games and M&L3 is using a tried-and-true formula, so there wasn't really anything to worry about. I'm just opposed to people not checking facts ("it was like that when I checked a few days earlier" is not a good foundation for a thread) and a few other things I've already expounded upon in other posts in this thread.
Please, tell me where exactly did I tell you to buy this game because it has high reviews. Go on. Show me. Because if that's the case, you win.

WarpRattler, first off, the original purpose of this topic had nothing to do with whether or not review scores factored into whether a game is good or not and whether to buy it. YOU my good sir were the one who started that argument, and with nobody I might add, since nobody was talking about it prior to that. The only reason I started trying to debate that was because you were making it sound as if Mario & Luigi 3 is a bad game, which it most certainly is not.

Now I already acknowledged I made a mistake when posting, and should've checked my sources further before commenting on it in my original post, so why are you still bickering with people? The only reason I commented on the 'highest' score it had gotten on some sites, was simply because I was acknowledging that I thought it was impressive. What am I not allowed to be impressed? I never said everyone should buy it, I never said it's automatically good and everyone will like it because it has good reviews, I was simply commenting on how I thought it was very deserving of its praise.

There was absolutely no reason for you to come in here and invent a conflict simply because you disagreed with something I never implied, just as an excuse to be elitist. It's counterproductive and accomplishes nothing. If you want to debate the validity of reviews, make your own topic, because as it is, you're doing more harm here by preaching your arbitrary gospel. Because if you read what I originally said, I stated REGARDLESS of the review scores, I bought it and decided it was a fantastic game, and wanted to discuss that. I purposely put that in because I had a feeling this argument would rise up and cause a [dukar] storm, when all I wanted to do was talk about the game's quality. I never once suggested that the reviews were the "foundation" of my thread. You told yourself, me, and everyone else that it was.  And you used the fact I made a mistake on something that doesn't actually pertain to the original topic in here, as a means for you to come in and try to be some sort of divine conqueror of falseness, and all for some misguided sense of self-righteousness.

I was pretty disappointed  with Super Mario Galaxy 1. So this one is not looking too promising.
Pretty sure you're the only person in the world who felt that way.

Personally I found that hysterical, PaperLuigi. Hence what I meant before. He's both 'the man' figuratively since I think he's awesome, and he'a also literally "the man" in that he's the stereotypical angry, white, conservative *******.

I set my cell phone as an alarm for 8:30. I get up always tired since I usually only get like 4 hours of sleep per night. I get dressed, turn my turtle's tank on and feed him, brush teeth and wash face and stuff. Head downstairs, put in contact lenses, do my hair, etc. Then I make coffee, get the paper, and have cereal. I leave for class around 9:15.

I like mornings on one hand because I like the whole cliche setting of the morning. You know, everything's very quiet and macabre. Just news on tv playing in the background. It's not very sunny outside. Still somewhat chilly. Just everything's in a sorta preparation stage.

On the other hand I hate mornings because like I said I never get good nights of sleep.

No. You said it's a big deal when a game is universally acclaimed, when it definitely isn't (both because a lot of games are "universally acclaimed" and because sometimes the critics are wrong).

It definitely is. Because contrary to what you said, there isn't a plethora of games that scores highly everywhere it gets reviewed. More often than not, there's always a handful of reviews out there who will not like a game. Games that score highly everywhere are the ones that become instant classics like Metal Gear Solid, Ocarina of Time, and Mario Galaxy.

But as I repeat, I didn't say to buy the game simply because it's scoring highly.
