    PSA: Crystal Pepsi is back on store shelves

    Just noticed them over the weekend. I bought a few of them to try out. They're very similar to Pepsi...but, with kind of a Sprite aftertaste. Definitely better than buying a vintage one for $100+. Jon EDIT: Thus far, I've only seen 20 oz. versions.

    Gaming accomplishments that you could never do

    Here's mine: uk6wj03BeiA Dark Demon from Demon's Crest on SNES. Only accessible with a code after getting every item in the game. I've been trying to beat him for about 20 years, still can't do it. Even with full potions, Armor Crest, I still fall short, for some reason. I'm still not...

    So, a buddy tried to teach me to drive manual yesterday

    Long story short, it didn't go well. TL;DR version: He drove us to a church parking lot in a WRX. He explained what I had to do and, I thought I got it. I had no idea the clutch was on the left side...I always thought it was in the middle. Anyway, stalled first couple times. The part I'm...

    Time to ask: YouTube video "stars" and the rising cost of games

    The basic question here is do wanna be Youtube "stars" contribute to the rising cost of games? I've brought this topic up at various conventions and the answer I usually get is "yes". I'm also not saying it's the only cause of rising prices, just one of them. I'll give you guys one example...

    Not sure what Shawn's obsession with Shigen from Last Blade is but, I think we've been looking at it for way too long. Who's with me? Maybe we could have a design contest, or something? Jon

    Strange movies you saw as a kid

    What is the most bizarre game you've ever played?

    Thought I'd make a new topic after replaying a game from my childhood I've always thought was the weirdest, most bizarre game I've ever played. Little back story, I only really had one system up until I was a freshman in high school, which was Game Boy. For a little kid, I actually had a...
