Best synopsis of Shadow of Mordor ever (from a Steam sale highlight on RockPaperShotgun):

"Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor for £3.19/$3.99 – A ranger whose family is killed by orcs rediscovers love when he meets 12,000 other orcs"

Saw a YouTube review of that NES TV the other day and they were saying a lot have broken feet.

Why though? I mean it's a TV. Don't you just put it down and leave it there?

It has these really bad plastic feet that stick out way further than any TV that I've ever seen. I remember moving my sister's CRT TV a few times before HD really took off, and those bastards are heavy. The plastic feet are in a position, and so weak structurally, that setting it down at a slight angle could cause them to snap off.

So more a case of bad design that extra rough handling type thing.

And yeah some CRT TV are really heavy. I used to have a 32' stereo wide-screen so  it only was all the weight at the front but it was stupidly long.
Replacement was about a quarter the weight and a bigger screen lcd

Also here's a great article on what it costs to own a game store:

Thanks for the link to the polygon article it was excellent!

There are now exactly zero independent video game shops where I live. There's Game of course but their stuff in store is more expensive than their own website and used stuff is really expensive.
Two CEX which are noting better than pawn shops that are always stocked with crap and a small chain called Grainger Games, that while they have good prices they don't have much to choose from, they always seem to have more dvd and blu rays than games.

 There is one store that deals in retro in a town close by but their prices are as bad as CEX with stupid amounts wanted for even common Megadrive stuff you can still get on ebay cheap.

Just started it because of this post.

Are you going to do a write-up on it? If not, I may want to.

KFC VR training:



As a former "crispy" and "original" cook at KFC I can attest to the accuracy of this training video, but with two minor issues: First, the handle on the strainer used for washing the chicken is very different (it has a vertical orientation instead of horizontal).  Secondly, when you make a mistake, which ALWAYS happens in training (not unlike the Kobiyashi Maru), which results in a few stripes from a branch broken from a tree outside the restaurant (which YOU have to go fetch).  Back in the day it was done by an anonymous person wearing a Colonel Sanders mask, but I heard that today in some regions they have an actual full-body C. Sanders cosplay!
