    It's weird how this thread and the general chat in OVGD are talking about the same thing right now.

    Those are pretty okay in their own right -- generally, combine them with more general information about how the game plays, and you have something that could serve as a good indicator as to how well those whose scores are aggregated enjoy those features.

    Well, hopefully.

    Well, we pretty much all play video games on this site, it's somewhat to be expected, I guess?

    Yeah, a few episodes in and I can see that the arc transitions are a lot smoother. But it's been replaced with Kyou, Ryou, and Kotomi showing up randomly and commenting on whatever stupid crap is going on and then running off again. Still, probably 95% of what I'm hating about it stems from Nagisa. They did the impossible and made her worse, changing her personality from awful to non-existent (unless Mary-Sue-following-the-main-character-around-everywhere is a personality, but I don't think so). And they gutted the characters of Tomoya and Kyou, cut Tomoyo's story and development in half, did God-knows-what with Kotomi's personality, and gave Ryou a smaller dose of the Nagisa treatment. It's really annoying just because it would probably be a really great show (and better game) if Nagisa wasn't in it at all. And also I don't understand all the reviews I read saying that it's a great romance story, but I guess that's exactly why Twilight is a bestseller. That's probably why they had to deliberately make all the characters worse, too: it wouldn't even be conceivable that Nagisa could be anybody's choice if all the other options weren't reduced to shells of what they should be (or just removed from the picture entirely, as they were in the game).

    I should really find a better place to ***** about being angry at animes, but eh, effort. And I don't want to risk getting involved with real weeaboos.

    I should also start that eventually. My backlog and procrastination is preventing this though. I should be doing homework and studying, not playing animu.
    I don't mean to judge, but the sooner you get on that, the sooner your life improves. And studying's overrated anyway.

I may be looking too much at allmusic, which employs several "critics" who like everything and give half-opinions and four-line reviews when a "line" is about 400 pixels wide.
    Music critics are in a league of their own at sucking. But yeah, I can never tell what ratings really mean, either. They should be curved or whatever, so that there's about as many 1s as 5s, 2s as 4s, and so on, because how often do you actually see a really low score as opposed to a really high one? It's madness.

    Going off what I just wrote, this kinda makes me want to hunt down a 1/10 game, just to see what's up. I don't know that I've ever seen one, though.

    Let the record state that the GCT aggregate has decided that aggregators are the way to go with reviews.

    Also video games are for nerds what's wrong with you guys.

    As far as chapstick is concerned, Burt's is the bee's knees.

    Haha, see what I did there?

    But that reminds me of this awful story. I used to have a ton of chapstick in all different flavors (strawberry, bubblegum, blue raspberry, etc), and my old next door neighbor growing up asked if she could eat it (I had a group of friends over at my house). I figured she was joking and said no and thought nothing else of it. Anyways I stepped out of the room for something, came back and we all left to go outside or something.

    When I went back hours later to get some chapstick every damn stick was eaten. There was like 8 of them !

    I can't even imagine how someone would enjoy that lol.

    You think that's weird.....oh man I've got a story for you.
    So I went to Disney World for my senior trip at the end of november last year, and I was casually minding my own business walking through some stores in the Magic Kingdom. A child no taller than maybe five feet, runs up to me and jabs my groin. Then darts away. I didn't see a face, or anything. Just BOOM and gone. I was literally sexually assaulted by a child in Disney World. My friends were dying with laughter as I was groveling on the floor in pain. I made at least 100 people's day.
