I prefer not having to wear glasses. ;)

Honestly, the GBA version with (maybe) the sound and color restoration patches should be enough nowadays. It's got the best translation, the most content, and other languages if you want 'em.

Closest I can come up with is Dota 2 (although it's not like... "bad" bad). It's an amazingly fun game when things go right, but goddamn it is the balance garbage and the community awful. Also, playing against Peruvians who hardly speak any English on an American server every other match is horrendous for a team game.

This sounds a whole lot like this. They're both item jingles, too!

Also, here's something even closer to the Fairy Fountain theme than Celes's theme.

The only game that I opted for the console version over the PC version was Terraria because the PC version lacks controller support and there's no way in hell I'm playing a platformer with a mouse that's fucking retarded.  The PC version is superior in every other conceivable way -- but no controller is an absolute deal-breaker.
I would suggest biting the bullet and getting used to playing Terraria with a keyboard and mouse, honestly. The convenience of using a mouse for crafting, inventory management, and on-screen construction far outweighs the clunkiness of having to use WASD and Space for platforming and movement.

Here's a bit from the song "Mortal Man" by Kendrick Lamar from the album To Pimp a Butterfly (REALLY good album, by the way). I thought it was pretty profound.

How many leaders you said you needed then left ‘em for dead?
Is it Moses, is it Huey Newton or Detroit Red?
Is it Martin Luther, JFK, shoot or you assassin
Is it Jackie, is it Jesse, oh I know, it’s Michael Jackson, oh

I agree completely 100% that Nixon was a no-good crook, but the War on Drugs was actually a great thing.
I'm sorry, but this is the biggest pile of horseshit I've read in a long time. The war on the drugs is demonstrably one of the biggest failures of an institution in history. It's created a multi-billion dollar black market of dangerous substances, it's formed an elaborate network of gangs and organized crime, it's destroyed the social landscape of Latin America and inner city US communities, and has turned many police departments into corrupt, militant assholes. It's ruined and/or outright taken more lives than it's ever helped, and what for what purpose? Because muh mind benders? What is this nonsense?

What I don't get it how you remain a creationist nut after decades of exposure to neuroscience.

He also comes off as rather Islamophobic. Maybe he's not such a nice guy after all...
That sure is a popular word nowadays, isn't it?

Honestly, aside from the comments about Mexico and building a wall, I can't name any time that Trump has explicitly mentioned race in his campaign rhetoric. Maybe this all happened too early in the campaign for me to remember, but can someone fill me in?

Frankly, I think it's too little too late for them to do anything at this point. They got caught off guard with how successful Trump's campaign has been and they're scrambling to get any sort of opposition. It's gotten to the point where some asshole who tried to attack Trump on stage gets glorified as a hero, Godwin's Law has been invoked out the wazoo, and their lot is throwing out every label and pejorative in the book to try and stifle Trump's popularity.

Honestly at this point, the protests are just fuel for the Trump support fire. All they do is fuel more rally scuffles and antagonism.

I remember how retarded everyone thought the face petting was when it was first unveiled in trailers a couple of months ago. Now people are complaining about it getting censored. We've come full circle, huh?

I have no idea why you guys are humoring this kid's conversation.

No? Remember, Steam Machines is a product line, not a single console. They're likely going to launch different versions of the Xbone with varying degrees of hardware capability.

Seems like they're trying to copy Valve's Steam Machine strategy, except on a Windows platform rather than on Linux.

Interesting, so if I make a Sonic game I'm not infringing anyone's copyright? (or IP may be more accurate, if you don't mind lets just class them as the same thing)
I'm basically with Fast on this one, honestly. But that seems to be a somewhat different scenario.

Okay, maybe my analogy was kind of shitty, so I guess I'll be literal.

Video games are, at least legally, software products, not art pieces. Unless that software is used and/or distributed illegally, no infringement occurs. When you upload a YouTube video of a game, you're not uploading the game itself, but another piece of media which displays its content. So then, why should someone get a copyright strike for that?

Seems like quite a legitimate strike. If you were to copy an entire film do you think it would matter by law if you had the credits or not? Fair use is all about using parts of a work to create your own derivative, uploading the entire gameplay, without review or commentary of your own, doesn't really offer anything new. For what it is worth I enjoy watching Let's Plays, but still don't think it falls on the right side of copyright law.
That makes no sense whatsoever. Videos of a video game are an inherently transformative work. Seeing footage of a game is not the same thing as having your hands on the game's actual data and playing it yourself. Flagging gameplay footage for copyright infringement is akin to a car company accusing someone of car theft for posting a video of themselves driving one of their vehicles.

Seriously, they should just let it fucking die. There's no way any competent developer is gonna want to touch the Sonic IP at this point. The series' glory days have been over for at least 15 years. There's no use trying to save it. Nobody is gonna care.
