I completely agree with the first part, but obviously I'm guilty of the "PCB with no name", which is of course a totally intentionally douchy move.
I try to take pictures that leave in enough details to hint at exactly which the game in question is, and enjoy seeing if people are familiar enough to figure it out. I only do this because I actually enjoy that kind of detective work myself.

Actually weren't thinking of you specifically lol (didn't notice you posted one recently).
It's just something that I've always found extremely stupid and irritating on this forum, probably the shittiest 'farm tradiditon' after the politics threads. :twisted:

Hell yeah the acronyms, this winds me up on a daily basis because it's a business staple - just assuming everyone is in your little bubble.... or that if they don't know the acronym, their existence is unimportant. Especially when it's in no way unique - hello GOW. My brain gives a default translation of oh fuck off.

Also: random Japanese names for Western localised and popular games. I love you BIL, but my brain struggles with those Shinobi sequels and I have no idea what magic it peforms whenever I see whatever the hell the Japanese title is for Mercs :D But hey, at least it's written using the Latin alphabet....

Pair the two by referring to Streets of Rage as BK. Stop making me hungry.

If it's any consolation I swear I don't do it to be an Elitist Prick™. Image :lol: It's strictly business! The business of differentiation. :cool: Splatterhouse III? That noob K.LOBB screwed up its BOMBA balance (someone did, at any rate). Splatterhouse Part 3? Now we're talking, time to bust some fuckin heads with precision ultravaiorence. Image Why's this Ghouls n' Ghosts way the hell harder than you remember? Is actually Daimakaimuira. Image

If it's something with no real regional difference like Contra III I'll tend to use that, even if it's not what's on my shelf. I ain't calling it Probotector though. I don't protect robots! I shoot the fuckers! Image :wink:

TBH I was aghast to learn The Revenge of Shinobi was "The Super Shinobi" in Japan, the former being one of the chief ruiners of my preteen boy brain. Makes total sense though. TSS (no not Twinkle Star Sprites!) is clearly its own sub-series, followed up by TSS2. "Revenge" makes it sound like a sequel to the AC game, and "III" cements the impression. I think it's worth distinguishing the stripped-down, deadly-unforgiving AC line from the more showpiece-oriented doublejumps, lifebars & command moves "Super" one.

(Little Annoyed Hell GAIDEN: I wish Shin Shinobi Den had been called The Super Shinobi III - because fugly aesthetic aside, that is sure as shit what it is!)

Got a fun one... People that drive massive vehicles but then...they can't really handle driving/parking them. In a parking lot today there was a large van parked diagonally across two spaces. Like wtf.

Then just something funny. I was in the self checkout area and another guy also using the self checkout started talking about how it was taking jobs away from people. I lol'd.

Gotta agree with BIL that regional difficulty differences can make them to be like two different games. Ninja Gaiden III? Props for 1CCing that one. Ninja Ryukenden III: Yomi no Hakobune? Eh, anyone can do it.

Time to triple up on the red white and blue with Binding Arbitration Clauses: just encountered yet another one on a game I picked up (and after waiting over an hour for updates to download), so back to the store it goes.

Millions of administration and law workers paid because they're certified qualified for the job...not a single one can make a fucking pdf.

punk ass bitches

EDIT: also people who give the cold shoulder / silent treatment for fucking nothing, no explanation, not the balls to speak their heart, talk with/confront people.
So easy, no risk of being wrong and realize maybe you're being an ass, eh?
Well whever you are if you do that you're just a pathetic worm.

Chrome spellcheck seems to have suddenly lost its shit. "Largesse" and "reticle" are both redlining, among several other conspicuously non-exotic words. Seriously? That's the threshold? I'm surprised "threshold" didn't redline. Making me look up words I already done learn, and shit! :evil:

according to google spell check
"gamers"
is not a word
please contemplate this, fellow "gamers"

but what drives me even more nuts than missing words in spell check is when the spellings I learned in American schools as a kid are WRONG according to whatever weirdo "American Dictionary" some of these programs are using
for some reason though... I never use the "add to dictionary" function...

People posting videos to youtube labeled "reviews" of games, but it's actually an hour+ let's play of them ineptly stumbling through the tutorial stage.
