    Twin, I know this is nothing more than a thinly veiled attack on Nintendo disguised as a joke. So stop picking on Nintendo Guild McTwinRetroism :cry:.

    I'm not crying, I'm just tired and emotional.

    Sonic does this more.

    Except the second is more common than the first.

    Nintendo makes everything the same? It's apparent they've learned from Sony's refusal to make a new design.

    And Sony learned from the time honored phrase, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it"

    Sony needs to make a mascot. They already have loads but, where is their mascot that they're known for? I mean, Nintendo has Mario, Sega has Sonic, Microsoft has Master Chief, Whats Sony's?

    Title is inaccurate, it should be:

    This is why none Nintendo fans are so awful.


    They're the ones who complain the most...and then go back to playing their yearly CoD games.

    Anyway for the haters, this is the last New Super Mario Bros for a long time, Nintendo is treating this like it treats Mario Kart with one entry per platform.

    They should follow Sega's lead; after all, Sega does what Nintendon't.

    Except it is broken.

    I never quite understood the location of the analog sticks on Sony consoles. With the first Dual Shock, it could've been influenced by how often the D-Pad was used in the past, so it was "there" despite the fact that the console's main focus was 3D. That, and the stock pads didn't have analog nubs at all.

    With the Dual Shock 2, I started scratching the back of my head... the focus was shifted from the D-Pad to the analog nub - why wasn't the nub placed in the most obvious place then - right under your thumb as you grab the pad? It's the place that allows for the most comfort as you use the pad after all - putting it where it is now makes the player bend their thumb to reach it, increasing muscle strain.

    With the Dual Shock 3, I lost all hope - tradition won againts common sense, and I think this design is just going to stick. At this point, it's actually a manufacturer's staple and the most recognizable pattern connecting Sony systems. The exact same layout is even used on the PSP and the Vita - god knows why.

    Well it's true, Sega does what Nintendon't.

    Sega makes completely awful games.

    I think he's always having a breakdown. I'd hate to be the guy who gets his burger order wrong.

    I was under the impression that NeoGeo fans were the worst.

    I actually liked sunshine because it was different, its also one of the few mario games that used water on a regular basis without making me want to stab myself.

    But alas this is the EoF so dicks and lollipops and all that jazz.

    He just seems permanently angry. I sincerely hope Obamacare will provide him with chill pills.

    No we're not. We are dignified gentlemen. Who wear top hats and wank with condoms on. And fornicate with women with low moral virtue.
