Digital textbooks seem like they would only be worthwhile if you could torrent them, as shitty as that sounds. I'm sure some people would prefer being able to read them on their tablet or computer or whatever, but I'm sure official digital copies are still overpriced as Fuck--I'd never want to get stuck paying 40 bucks for a Fundamentals of Basic Math or whatever textbook that is too obscure to be easily torrented, and not even get a hard copy for my money.

 

Real talk tho, GEX is everything I remembered and less.

You know you cried. Shut up. If they had called it 'How I Met Your Aunt Robin' the show would've ended after the first episode. whoknows would've liked it that way. Ted marries Robin because Lily said that the only way anyone from the group can bang Robin is if they marry her. Not a real spoiler.

 

I wish they would have pandered to the audience with Lost... Although I quite enjoyed the show, Fuck that ending!

 

Nah dude, I'm not gonna read the rest of your discussion on this but HIMYM's ending was poorly done. I don't give a shit who Ted ends up with (although Robin is pretty annoying and they basically wrote/cast the mother to be the most endearing human ever), the problem is the execution. They A) spent the entire last season on Barney & Robin's wedding, which was already proven to be a terrible idea when it resulted in a final season stretched out with terrible storylines and meaningless flashbacks, only to make the season seem even worse and more needless in retrospect when the couple breaks up 15 minutes into the finale, B) (and this is the major one) COMPLETELY triviliazed the mother's role in Ted's life. Everyone had already guessed she would be dead/sick but they spent like a single line of dialogue and a 1 minute scene on the titular mother dying, then leapt immediately into "lol dad, this is just about you wanting to Fuck that hot chick who always comes to dinner".

 

The ending came off like a complete misreading of the show and audience for the sake of a last-second twist. I don't think any audience member, whether they were okay with the ending or not, agreed with the kids when they told Ted "yeah, obviously this was all about you and Robin"--no one thought that or bought that, unless they were the kind of TV viewer who would have nodded along if the kids said "clearly this was about you wanting to put your dick in Jason Segel". Having him end up with the mother, having her die and this end up being a bittersweet story, whatever--none of that would been pandering, it just wouldn't have been shitting all over your characters, story, and audience. They made no kind of "Life goes on" or "true love could be right in front of you" or "there's always another chance at happiness" lasting statement to leave the audience with--they just tacked on a twist ending they wrote ten years ago.

 

They mishandled that shit so bad that I just wrote two huge paragaphs about HIMYM and I've NEVER felt an emotion or given a shit toward that show.

Anyone care to give me some pros and cons of A Link Between Worlds? Been having the Zelda itch lately.

Pros: I thought the dungeons were the exact right amount of puzzling--I would be stumped on what to do, and then after exploring for a bit, I would figure it out. Most Zelda games have way too many points where I'm deep in a dungeon and have literally no idea what I need to do, or am on the overworld and have no indication where the next dungeon is. I realize most people don't have the same issues with the main series, but that's what made the game great for me.

 

Cons: Renting/buying items is less satisfying than finding them in the dungeons. It is easier than a usual Zelda, and as a result is pretty easy to blow through. There is a harder difficulty, a tower of escalating enemy fights, and some optional items/mini-games to go through, but I didn't feel any drive to replay/keep playing after beating it.

Someone really needs to teach the walking dead writers how you write a TV finale

 

or a tv show

 

or a line of dialogue
