as much as you knocked skullgirls for being full of refs and dumb injokes, im sure you're having a blast playing through this

yknow at least borderlands 2 is, like, fun to play in some aspect

like legit its alright, but this whole 'internet references in other media' thing is just getting more pathetic the more it happens. it was terrible when it started and it continues to be so.

and are those minecraft screenshots, like, real? i have a hard time believing that they would just flat out copy-and-paste minecraft into this unless it was like the BL equivalent of the cow level

but, then again, rage faces.

References and memes are fine. Internet-based references and memes are fine. But there are good and bad ways to use them, and there are good and bad references and memes to choose.

The arrow to the knee reference, in my book, would be good if it wasn't something that every person in the game's target audience is already sick of. "Dubstep = wub wub wub" was cute once ever in recorded history. Now it's just grating. Minecraft... yep.

The "bonerfart" enemies could be funny with the right context. Not sure I'm confident that they found that right context, though!

They actually do introduce bonerfarts in a funny way. At least in my opinion it was funny.

Yeah the Bonerfarts in context is hilarious. I don't know if the Minecraft thing is exactly what I'd call brilliant (Haven't gotten there yet though) and the dubstep and arrow to the knee are kind of dumb imo. However that shouldn't sway you away from an awesome game such as this.

Though I am getting sick of hearing the dubstep joke every time I load the game and my character is in Sanctuary.

Spat showed me a video. Sorry, Scrow, but that part actually is funny. I can't say I'm super enthused about this game, not because of anything that seems outstandingly "bad" about it, but because there are so many other games I'd like to be playing with my dwindling free game time.

I think we must remember that we are not so different from the FILTHY UNCULTURED SWINE!!! of reddit, 4chan, memebase, et al. I feel like my negative reaction to them comes from the fact that it wasn't too long ago that i was doing pretty much what they do now, and the fact that their culture has become so unavoidably ubiquitous. So when i feel it, i try and temper it by realizing that the differences are minimal and it is not a super big deal.

The first time I went into #melee I actually thought you guys were like some sort of 4chan offshoot of SM.Net

then it turned out that wasn't really the case, outside of all the :weedle: stuff.

I'd play Borderlands 2 with you guys if I had a computer more powerful than a netbook.
