Hehe...

X-files was featured in, w00t!

Btw, I have a collection of musical paperclips I got as a gift, kind of like these:



They're so cute I end up not actually using them.


PS: What's up with that new hairstyle - trying to overcome Fred? that's his business!

Those are pretty cute indeed.
The paperclip thing started as a joke, but only when the show was half made did I realize theres actually a lot of cool ones out there.

yup
The lighting is considerably better in this place, hence a slight increase in the visual quality of the footage.
Its a really nice place.

It was the longest day yesterday wasn't it? Jack hates that day :P

And yes, I like Avatars:TLA intro too, although it very much fits the template mentioned in the episode. Its so weird how so many shows do that.

If theres a list for pre-intros though, Legend of Korra's old-timey news reports should get it.

oh yes, those pre-intros are amazing... Whoever thought about making those is a genius.

I think I know why most shows use such kind of intro, but I can't explain it in english u.u

That arm effect is nice... When I saw the vid I thought it was just put on your arm, with that pic I realised that the cables are actually coming out of your arm !

I'll put it on the suggestion pile as the next two episodes are planned already.
Actually, I have a friend who might want to do that one though.

Oh, ok. I'll wait.


Btw this website reminded me of RRS... it's a comparison between Star Wars vs Star Trek technology:

Neat comparison, although the fact the federation doesn't design their ships with easily exploitable weak-points is probably the biggest factor

Did you see this btw;

Wowowowowowow, very nice! Never seen it before. I wonder where he got all the measures though, do all science-fiction series have trivia books with such info?

A lot do when it comes to star trek/wars.
In other case's he studied when you saw a ship and a person at the same time, and made estimates based on that. (or another known referance point - but mostly people I think).

Of course, theres some disagreement at times, and in some case's the source material was probably getting it wrong themselves. (The difference between deathstar sizes seems unlikely to be intentional imho).
Old sci-fi tends to get their science very wrong at times - Star Trek TOS occasionally referred to traveling between galaxys rather then solar systems, and Star Wars has the famous lightyear-as-speed mix up. Both retconed later.

For the bigger stuff theres normal explanations for the size source, or uncertaintys.

Still, I love looking at massive fictional stuff for some reason :P

I'd be so much happier if you uploaded RRS to youtube or any other video publishing website other than blip.tv ... For me, that site always plays videos jerkily and laggy.

Anyway.

Nice rejected review, however, how come you don't even put some video capture of the gameplay in action or big screenshots, anything, y'know, that'd actually make me want to play the game and get to know it better?

The whole "I won the game celebration" thing and the pun at the end was kinda funny but that's about it.

I wish the shows (I speak in general, not just the bonuses) shared a 50%/50% ratio between funny + informative. As it is now I feel it is 20% dullness/bad editing/non eye-candy shots, 25% mildly interesting ideas, 25% informative and 30% funny.

Heh, not bad (the short about advance wars) I played a bit the GBA one, but quickly grew tired of it, too repetitive/can't captivate me.

... Who is that Honeybun Mii ?
