Pineapple on pizza is inhuman. You monsters.

Egg on pizza on the other hand, is fantastic. Especially if it's really runny :D

TLDR: Pineapple on pizza = hell yes.

People have such strong opinions on Pineapple, yet no one bats an eyelid at all these fancy pants beers, with weird things in them. Plus I like my pizza bases thiiiiiiiick.

It's been working for me really well, just waiting on Canada.

Anyone else taking E3 week off? Love watching the spectacle live.

Review: AusGAF (2006) for the PC.

You already know what to expect from AusGAF (2006) after the last thread in the series, and NeoGAF doesn't offer any surprises. There's some new stuff, some irritating bugs have been ironed out, and a new storyline bolted on to make everything look welcoming for newcomers.

AusGAF (2006) tries to seperate itself from the pack with interesting features. One of the great things about AusGAF (2006) is that you get to make real moral choices along your way through the complex storyline. It really affects the thread in a subtle, mature and nuanced way, like whether or not you end your post by feasting on the brains of dead prostitutes or killing yourself in front of your terrified pregnant wife.

Some people may bemoan the lack of co-op play, but this reviewer believes it would have caused ludo-narrative dissonance.

The graphics are pretty crap! You'll be checking if something's wrong with your system, and maybe some people will get a kick out of the poorly executed retro art style, but it's not enough.

Being a 2D game, the hardware capabilities of your PC aren't exactly being pushed to the limit. Purists may point out that the 16-bit games AusGAF (2006) is trying to emulate didn't look this horrid, but it's a minor problem.

Performance is best on a Nvidia system, and you'll need at least a 7700 card to be able to run the game at the now-standard 2048 by 198 resolution with full AA and trilinear mimap interpolation. Stability issues were sometimes a problem. It's a shame you can still see some UI compromises that were made for the mobile ports of this thread.

Fans of the Real World Puzzle genre will like what they see here, but others should try before they buy.

Overall Score: 4 / 10

Because if you're drinking beer at all, you've already pushed through the stage of "god this tastes terrible, but I wanna get drunk" to "I wanna get drunk, this is cheap and I'm used to it now." It is then a fairly small step to "hey this foreign beer is on special... tastes kinda different... I wonder how many kinds of different there are?"

There's no "getting used to it" stage with pizza. Except for anchovies.

The old thread title was funny at first, being a reference to AusGAF 1, but it wore out it's welcome as the thread aged. I like this title because it is both a palette cleanser and a video game reference.

Also we could always just make a new thread for 2017 regardless of post count.

Anyone else check out the Doom beta over the weekend? I quite liked it. I get that people don't like that it feels more like UT now, but I dig the pace.

I found out I got into the Overwatch weekend a little too late to play though.

I think it was more that it felt like Halo, not UT.

It feels more like CoD / Halo than UT, that's exactly the problem.

Ooh, taking the shrink-wrap of this gritty rebooted AusGAF are we. Shame about lack of manuals these days.

Also, new neighbors just moved in next door and they're blasting generic,whiny,auto-tuned cringe song #4741. Thought it would be good to have younger people in the unit next to us for a change.


How wrong I was. Is there a GrumplyoldmanGAF thread somewhere?

Beatport obviously isn't any where near as big as iTunes or Spotify, but it's still a pretty good indicator of trends within the electronic music scene.

Netflix has been flawless for me the last few weeks for US Netflix.

Can anyone help me to setup HBO Go on PS4? How do I pay for it etc.

A minute though? I assume you can't just pull a Cookie Monster and crumble them into oblivion next to your mouth, so it'll include chewing time.
