I read "Megatokyo", and I will be the first one to tell you that it is terrible . It wasn't so bad back when Caston was involved; and I really like his influence in it, but after that point... It is just such a manifestation of the word "weeaboo" with all of its negative connotations. So many stereo...

Noted. Any other tips from the gallery? I don't really think of what you said as being "bad" at smalltalk. Just do what you want and that makes you comfortable, with a certain amount of accommodation for the perceived preferences of others. If you like silence, don't say a lot. If others aren't com...

The roomate problem isn't really a problem for me, since I don't usually drink anything besides water (and milk on cereal/oatmeal). So I don't really ingest pulp regularly, but when I do drink orange juice, pulp is always the preference.

I finished Metroid Prime a little bit ago.

Just be aware, season 2 is starting in only about 12 1/2 days! At that point, I expect a lot of discussion here will be about that (and I assume it'll be easier to catch them in order when they're going through their initial run).

Shirley you can get those to play on more modern machines. I'm not sure if some kind of compatibility mode or emulator would work, but if all else fails I think you could get a virtual machine running Windows 98 running well enough (which is what I used to do for a couple of games).

Absolutely no experience here, but... Windows or OS X? I've heard of some people having trouble with Deus Ex cutscenes and DX11; disabling it apparently helps, though don't ask me how you even do that.
