Found one in the Pac-Nihlism:
"Thus far, the 21st century has been sort of an odd time for video games. We have seen drastic increases in graphical presentation, and it is becoming increasingly probably that video games will offer up environments that are visually indistinguishable from the real world within my lifetime."

This picture in the Bucky O'Hare article. The mouseover text reads "Looks like some needs Swastika Drawing for Dummies". I'm assuming "Some" should be "Someone"

On your new article, during the passage discussing envy (which I love btw), you say this.

"Frustrated with his own inability to copy the Mario player's performance, the Luigi player might often choose to play to attempt to play through the entire fucking game.

In fact, Mario is guilty of every single (ONE or SIN) of the Seven Deadly Sins, from pride all the way down through sloth.

And not only is Mario guilty of all the Deadly Sins, but he commits each and every single one of them within the span of THE first Super Mario Bros. game.

Go ahead, make the predictable argument about HOW Mario is fighting for justice, opposing the evil tyranny of Bowser Koopa, and restoring order to the Mushroom Kingdom.

True, he rarely gets to BE the hero of the story, and the games where he is the main protagonist range from fucking awful to mediocre.

Mario is an immoral anti-hero who could GO toe-with-toe with Kratos, Duke Nukem, or anyone else for the title of Biggest Badass In Gaming.

Well, to be fair, February 1986 was the Nintendo Entertainment System's proper launch into the American market, followed by further foreign markets. October 1985 was more of a test launch. If you really want to be technical, Mario had been available on home consoles prior to even 1985.

Licensed versions of Donkey Kong appeared on the Atari 2600, the Atari 7800, the Atari 8-bit, the Commodore 64, the Apple II, Colecovision, Intellivision, CPC Amstrad, and the Commodore VIC-20, most of them released in tthe 1982-1983 range, while Nintendo was still developing the Famicom and before they had an idea they were going to market it outside their domestic market.

The non-Super version of Mario Bros. was released on nearly all those consoles as well.

But 1986, for all intents and purposes, marks the beginning of Nintendo-mania as we know it.

Hey Syd, found a small typo on your Top 100 SNES Games Mega Man X3 writeup:

The Mavericks suddenly went berserk again, apparently under Doppler's orders, and its up to Mega Man X and Zero to stop him.

Wrestlemania Sucks Article:
There's only one sure thing that you can bet will happen during this time of year.
I was a pretty big wrestling fan up for many years, up until around 2000 when things started to fall apart.
However I would much rather see m the WWF make better use of its roster instead of dragging out a Triple H vs. Batista match for an extra five minutes.

Found one in the McDonald's Halloween Pails article:
Quote:
In 1989, McDonald's decided that the pails needed BETTER ventilation. So whereas the original McBoo had four sets of small holes in its lid, the 1989 McBoo had six sets of larger holes. So if a guy ever puts a gun to your head and threatens to kill you unless you can tell him the difference between a 1986 McBoo pail and a 1989 McBoo pail, now your brains won't end up splattered all over wall.

A Salute To PrintMaster Plus 2.0:
Quote:
After great debate, the other board members and I have decided henceforth to reject your proposal on the grounds that it is crass and pedantic.

Quote:
The last thing this world needs is more lazy egotistical fuckheads, and PrintMaster Plus's stationery feature was unquestionably instrumental in creating untold dozens of smarmy bastards who cheated their way through college, bullshitted their way through interviews, and ended up with cushy jobs that they sneak out of two hours early every single day.

What the fucking hell am I ever going to use an ant border for?

Also, you forgot to give a caption to the Christmas border.
Metroid: A Blind Run By Valdronius:
Quote:
Nevertheless, if you've read through the 100 Best NES Games Ever article, you may have seen my undoubtedly unpopular opinion that the original Legend of Zelda is an unplayable piece of garbage.

Quote:
If I am absolutely flummoxed, I may delve into the game's instruction manual, but other than that, it will be as if it is 1987 again and I am a drooling preschooler who just got this game from his parents.

Quote:
I am a little disappointed to find that only two vertical descents and two horizontal rooms separated me from the final battle with Mother Brain.

That was intentional. Fixed everything else, except your Oct 6 corrections, which I will fix tonight.
