But wasn't he shown with a big-ass book full of mythology tales?

That's pretty lame.

It's a damn shame that they're are so pretty.

If you can find anything so epically corny, I...might just create another.

That is possibly the best thing of all time, I don't think I could find anything half as corny.

That was the Oedipus part, but to link that to Dragons being able to spark his memory about a certain Japanese God, then to link that to the rest of it to it's origins and such would require an extensive amount of knowledge in that field. Hardly doable for someone who just dabbles in it.

I haven't heard of a single person who prefers the DX50 over the DX90. Are you thinking of upgrading?

Well, thank you! But trust me, I can do better.

 

(You can also open the image in a new tab and download it to set it as your wallpaper, though you would probably have to add some space at the bottom to get it to fit.)

Grade-Schoolers likened boobs to coconuts for a reason ;)

At this point I actually think GGO is way much much much better than Season1. I appreciate that its taking time to actually introduce the background/settings and tell the story instead of skipping most details like Season1.

 

Still not sure what to comment on Zankyou no Terror.. those mythology references are making the quizzes kinda boring or bland to me.

Mythology references make it less exciting? My only two guesses as to why are:

 

  • You're well-versed in mythology. ("Heard it all before.")
  • You know little of mythology. ("Don't get it!")

The latter one, not interested in that anyway. But main problem is that such quizzes rely mainly on highly specialized knowledge instead of thinking skill, which is kind of boring from a third person view.

Nope.
And if I had the money to upgrade any piece of my rig, it would be my IEMs. DAPs don't change the SQ as much as the headphones/IEMs do IMO.
But since I'm really happy with my SM64, and the next big step up in SQ would cost like twice the money I paid for the Earsonics, I don't see myself upgrading my rig anytime soon.
Right now I'm more in the market for a nice turntable or a desktop rig.

Hmmmm true but it's the exact same situation they had in season one. The bits of combat we saw so far were not really convincing and did a poor job at communicating the rules and mechanics of this game.
I can hardly think of anything that I really liked in this show so far. Well, the visuals...but besides that?

Not everyone has to like them. Just because you understand them, you don't automatically like them.

Yea, I get that it's a device to show how "smart" our detective is, but that specialized knowledge stye of thinking doesn't really give it that impact some logic games can.

And frankly, it's a device used everywhere, which does get monotonous over time :<
