Those aren't acronyms.  Acronyms are when they actually spell a word.



Though I do have a stupid habit of referring to the GBA SP as a "Guh-basp", ie. pronouncing it as if "GBASP" were a word.

What's iffy about it?



The naysayers seem to all be people who haven't tried it yet.  Just about everyone who's actually handled it loves it.  Apparently even EGM, usually a bit on the anti-Nintendo side, loves it, and has put the Revolution on the upcoming June issue (as opposed to, say, the PS3).  They warn that the scary thing about it will be the line-ups at E3.  o_0



If my hands-on impressions are worth anything, I'll likely be glad to give 'em when I get back.  I don't know how often I'll be able to log on during the week that I'll be in LA, so you may hear a lot about it before I even get a chance to write anything up.

It doesn't seem like a compound word to me, so if it actually was one word, I word prefer it to have "Boy" capitalized.  Like how the second half of GameCube and PlayStation are.  It should be XBox, but then I guess that de-emphasizes the UBER-EXTREME-TO-THE-MAX-AND-SO-NOT-OVERUSED "X".

I remember the episode ("Ladies' Night Out" or something similar, I think - I don't usually remember episode names) of War Planets/Shadow Raiders where Graveheart tries to enter a bar.  The guy at the front (presumably a bouncer) says "Sorry bud.  No miners".



Because, you know, he was a miner.

The first one is last, it looks like.



It's a classic bit of trivia.  I'm sure some of you would know it when you see it.

Eek!  Minors!



Happy brithday, Inty.

Just fix it please, Inty.
3098  General Boards / Gaming / RE: If you forget the space in "Game Boy" again I'm going to kick you. on: April 26, 2006, 11:41:24 AM
That extreme laziness wouldn't explain splitting up "GameCube" to "Game Cube", "PlayStation" to "Play Station" (even if the original proposed Super NES CD-ROM upgrade WAS two words) or adding a hyphen to screw up "Xbox" into "X-box".

1. He's not mistaken, but insists that he is.



2. He wasn't published by Nintendo at first, but became a boss character in a Nintendo game. Now he's a good guy again, or at least when he was on TV, with a slightly different name.



5. What is the name of the character who reports no problems at the beginning of the blatantly-named sixth area of a game?



10. This Hunter's name is half of the North American title of another Nintendo-published game for the same system.




Which of these remaining questions do you think could be reworded or expanded upon?

So that you don't get in trouble looking up pictures of Francine Dee, and due to lack of interest in this topic, I might as well give bustin98 the point, even if he guessed twice and the closest to the right answer is the Japanese name.  At least I assume that Myuu = Mew, the original "secret Pok?mon", #151, which is the correct answer.



Half the quiz is left.  Did I word them too awkwardly?  Inty's guesses at the first two were incorrect, but were from the correct series.



EDIT: I didn't see that Inty edited his post, either that or I didn't originally see that he correctly guessed "Pik" as the name of Miyamoto's dog, which is what Pikmin is named after.

You know who you are.

What do you mean "not that much"?  You have access to the cPanel.  Surely you can see that I've gotten multiple times the space I used to have.  If I have maps over 5 MB, I'm sure we can have a few kBs worth of old avatars.  Revned said it all would take up about 4 MB.

I can't see it at work (Websense blocks sites like IGN), but I'm guessing it's slightly less than two weeks (by about half an hour?) until the LA Convention Center doors open early just for the media folks.  That includes me.  Smiley

I forgot to email them to you, sorry.  When I remember I will.



Now that I have space, I guess I can find a place for them.  Maybe just a directory/folder where all the HTMs can be accessed, unless you want to do something more.

That sounds like a diss.  Tongue
