TAY Classic Cuestion: Perpetual Livestream?

Hallo Herr TAY, I'm considering doing a lot more livestreaming, but I'm not sure if interest exists... Basically, I'll have my Twitch channel streaming whatever game I'm playing whenever I have that game on, sometimes with commentary, sometimes without. Would that be interesting background noise for you guys? Let me… » 4/07/15 11:00am 4/07/15 11:00am

I have a question for book fans.

I've never been a big fan of the "swords and sorcery" kind of fantasy, but I'm currently loving A Song of Ice and Fire. As I've been reading up on the series though, I've noticed that I'm especially interested in a particular "flavour" of story arc in that universe... The "pagan" mysticism. Specifically, the story arc… » 4/21/14 11:25pm 4/21/14 11:25pm

Anyone here taking a martial art?

I kinda started this thought process while playing Project X Zone... Seeing some of the really awesome martial arts acrobatics on display from some of the pairs (especially Akira/Pai) gave me this incredible sense of power that I very rarely feel. Obviously, the things in these games are mostly fantasy, I'm aware of… » 7/01/13 6:11pm 7/01/13 6:11pm

An Exchange Between My Brother and I, Regarding FF15.

Me: FF15... Doesn't look as cool as its original trailer.
Me: Where's all the colour?
Brother: the story was awesome in original trailer
Me: There was a story?
Brother: yeah man
Brother: get the crystal
Me: All I remember was this king-like dude sitting in his throne room, and then chopping the fuck out of knights with… » 6/11/13 6:56pm 6/11/13 6:56pm

Operation Condensation: Episode 1 - What The [Fudge] is a Sonic?

Operation Condensation has been a resounding success so far! I've gotten through 3 games and made my decisions on whether or not I'm keeping them. My fiance chose the first one for me - Sonic Advance 3. After that, I tackled Fear Effect and Rayman - of which the fiance picked at random. :P

But anyway, let's get the… » 6/01/13 11:11pm 6/01/13 11:11pm

Commencing Operation Condensation.

So TAY, here's the plan: I have far too many games and I wanna shed things down. Most of my collection, I'm keeping - I've already beaten or played through the majority of them, and I know I'd revisit them at some point (or at very least, have them as lovely showpieces in my collection). A solid 25% of it, though,… » 6/01/13 8:08pm 6/01/13 8:08pm

Introducing a new series - WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE [Zelda game]?

Whenever I feel like it, I'll post a new segment of What Is Your Favourite? to TAY and tayclassic. I still don't have author rights for some reason, so someone will have to bump it for me. :D Anyway, in this series, I'll ask you simply: "What is your favourite [ ]"? It can be anything, from games to movies to… » 5/31/13 9:51pm 5/31/13 9:51pm

Anita Sarkeesian is a sexist moron.

That is all. First person to invoke that "white dudes have life on easy mode" is also a moron. That concludes my thoughts on the matter. I'd elaborate, but my immediate feelings boil down to this. I'd like very much for people to stop claiming my life is the easiest fucking thing in the world just because I was born a… » 5/30/13 7:46pm 5/30/13 7:46pm

Anyone wanna take up a photoshop project for me?

So I FINALLY found a copy of one of my childhood favourite games (The Raiden Project; pictured) on eBay for a reasonable price (snagged a disc-only for around $25, though it normally runs around $40).
I have two problems though:
1. It doesn't come with the box and
2. If it did, it's a longbox title.

EDIT: Can someone… » 5/30/13 4:13pm 5/30/13 4:13pm

Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D was made in 2004 - Quick Review

For those who don't know, DKCR3D is a 3DS port of 2011(?)'s Donkey Kong Country Returns for the Wii. The original was good, but it had stupid controls designed for idiots. As JonTron sarcastically put it, "Buttons don't work. Why push a button when you can shake a stick?" Plus, it was hard as balls, but not in a smart… » 5/25/13 7:06pm 5/25/13 7:06pm

Anyone else remember when you could just pop a game in and play?

As recently as the PS2/GC era, things were simple - you bought a game, put it in the machine, sat on your arse, and played. End of story. With the PS3/360 era, things got a lot more complicated, but it did have its upside - while you'd have to wait hours for mandatory updates and installs to complete before you… » 5/24/13 6:29pm 5/24/13 6:29pm
