The server is stable, but the scraper is at its final limits due to crippling resource use and cloudflare limits, so /gif/ and /wsg/ images are paused. Let's solve this: help build a new scraper. More details here.

I cried the day that I realized that AVGN is more Mike Matei than James

I was heartbroken. I cried that day.

James, in real life, actually knows very little about video games. It's actually Mike Matei that plays and ghostwrites most of the AVGN material. This becomes very obvious if you watch the "James & Mike Mondays" let's play videos, the possibly most boring unfunny let's-play videos on youtube. Obviously Mike Matei isn't that funny or knowledgeable about games himself, but at least he actually still plays games. James is clueless when it comes to anything outside of a handful of surface Atari & NES games that everyone has played anyway
James is in such an awkward position: all he cares about is making awful movies, but the only creation of his that had any success is a video game nerd character who got a bunch of fans from the retro-gamer crowd, and now James is forced to work his ass off catering to them for a living. You can tell that video games were never really a big thing in his life outside of early childhood; James is basically being forced to live up to a role that just isn't really him. And now that he went and had a handicapped kid with his mediocre wife, he has no choice but to continue being a fraud and milking his fanbase for all their worth, in order to support his kid and his wife who will eventually divorce him and take all his money that he made from his undeserved e-fame.

Looking for some retro dating sim/adventure titles on consoles, preferably in English. So far I have played Thousand Arms and really enjoyed that. Where next, /vr/ bros?

What is Arle Nadja doing here? Is she concerned and tired? Is she also supposed to be looking through the screen at me or something?

It's such a silly expression!

Why does this game get so much flack? It's so much more enjoyable than Symphony of the Night and some of the 2D Classicvanias.

Dear Princess Sevenleaf

No.4758748 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
You are a scourge to /vr/. You are a male that uses the name "princess". You are a transexual that is so ugly, using the word "trap" would be inappropriate. You bring sexual identity politics to /vr/, which detracts from topic discussion. You are mentally I'll, and would be in good company with Chris Chan. I'm not opposed to you staying here, but for fucks sake, stop using a trip.

Babbages Gramps, you are also a faggot. So are you, NESFag. But at least you acknowledge it in your trip.

In closing, please stop with your bullshit, Sevenleaf. Please either leave, or stop bringing attention to your cock ducking faggotry. I just want to talk about retro vidya.
