I haven't played Hotline Miami 2 yet, but I hope there is at least one Jasper Byrne song in it. I really dig his work.

Wait, so that Steam Greenlight post wasn't meant as her flaming herself? I didn't realize it could have been something else and now rereading it, I suppose I understand. Sorry for my misunderstanding. Thank you Josh for clarifying stuff for me. I'm not so great at speaking very specifically, so I see where I made the mistakes in my phrasing when I asked the questions I did. Thank you and everyone for talking about this and sort of giving me a lesson on what is actually okay to talk about.
I realize while typing this that it likely sounds sarcastic, but I am being quite sincere in my thanks. I didn't mean anything by what I was asking or in the way I asked it. I just wanted to ask people that knew a bit more than I did and you guys all did help.
Glad to help Joel. I know you're not being sarcastic. It's hard to ask questions about sensitive topics on the internet, so asking friends for advice on how to not accidentally sound like a jerk is a smart and productive thing to do. The real jerks are the people who don't make any attempt to analyze why people may have called them a jerk.

Also, you could probably make that smaller, the reference to me...
Smaller: "Things Frosty likes about the 3DS."
Even Smaller: "Things Frosty likes about Smash Bros."
Even Smaller still: "Things Frosty likes about Monster Hunter."
Smallest: The likelihood of Frosty buying a Monster Hunter DLC for Smash Bros.

It wasn't meant as a conspiracy theory, I just asked if anyone thought that it was possible that after the Gamergate thing she made threats on herself and got a lot of nasty messages and comments. I even noted in my status that I did not necessarily think that, but I just wanted to know what people thought that actually did follow her in the news thought about that stuff given that she flamed herself.
I see that just asking such a thing could have been seen as trying to incite something, but I just wanted to know what the people I know thought given that they follow it all so closely and didn't think it was an odd thing to ask since I don't really follow enough news to even know who this chick is outside of the link that I posted.
It honestly didn't seem like the worst question at the time and since there isn't really a Podtoid crew anymore I don't have anywhere else to turn for people talking about gaming news, so I don't keep track of things going on in the industry except for the random things I see in other people's news feeds.
A few things:
1. It is a conspiracy theory when you suggest that someone faked death threats against themselves. Whether you are saying that you believe that conspiracy theory or not is a separate thing.
2. The reaction you got should show you the answer to your question about what people think about that conspiracy theory.
3. "given that she flamed herself" - I think you were jumping off from a false assumption in the first place on this one, which is probably why you got the reaction you did. I'd check your source on that, and like I said, do some research on the situation before throwing an idea out there if you don't want to risk people assuming you are a jerk.

Normally it's old people who are resistant to change and unable to adapt.
And yet, here I am, functioning fine and not complaining about the changes and a whippersnapper like you is all riled up... >_>
It's not the fact that it's different that bothers me. I was a fan of the previous CAG update. But this one has flow/readability issues. User titles look like either comments or post headers.

Too many characters. Bowser, Villager, and Ness are my big three though.
I couldn't get the hang of Villager from the small amount of time I spent with him. Bowser seemed really powerful though, and Ness has always been a fun goto for me.
So far, I've had a hard time trying to move away from Ike (who was my main in Brawl), but I've taken a liking to Wario as well.
Just made a bomb ass smoothie.
Yo, you put that spinach in it?
