Southernest? Probably not considering we have several australians on this board. You get to be "most latin american"

Well, I had some free time in my hands:

click for bigger.

Even if they lived in Canberra it'd be a tie, TOPS. And Sydney is above Canberra and so are most other big cities in Australia. So what do I win now?

For some reason this thread reminds me to an AA meeting ;D Nah, just kidding!

*ahem* My turn I guess!

~ My name is Javier, I'm 22 years old.
~ Born and raised in Buenos Aires, Argentina (I'm probably the southern-est person here ;D), still living there (but not for long!).
~ I'm studying Audio Visual Design in University, currently doing 3rd Year.
~ Fluent in both English & Spanish, still working my Japanese and I have some basic knowledge of Portuguese.
~ I've been playing computer games since 1988 when I got my first few Game & Watch games (Damn, those just rocked! I still play Greenhouse!)
~ I currently own a PlayStation 2, a Gamecube (which I barely use... just waiting for Twilight Princess!), and a Neo·Geo Pocket Color (Hah!)
~ I'm both a Windows & a Mac user (Fanboys should burn in hell!)
~ I'm happily in love with my girlfriend who lives in Toronto, ON (Canada) and I'm moving there with her in 1 year or something like that (I can't wait!).
~ Last but not least, here's a picture of me. (with my girlfriend, on my visit to Toronto back in August) ;D

Oh, and I found a picture of me being stupid! Had to share!  ;D

   1. While sleeping, fifteen percent of men snore, and ten percent grind their Jutendouji.
   2. It can take Jutendouji several days to move just through one tree!
   3. Only one child in twenty will be born on the day predicted by Jutendouji.
   4. In Japan it is considered rude to talk with Jutendouji in your mouth.
   5. It's bad luck for a flag to touch Jutendouji.
   6. The risk of being struck by Jutendouji is one occurence every 9,300 years.
   7. In the kingdom of Bhutan, all citizens officially become Jutendouji on New Year's Day.
   8. If you blow out all the candles on Jutendouji with one breath, your wish will come true.
   9. Edinburgh imports three thousand kilograms of Jutendouji every year.
  10. Women shoplift four times more frequently than Jutendouji!

Hahahah, and here's one more about Solid Snake, because he is badass. ;D

   1. A female ferret will die if it goes into heat and cannot find Solid Snake.
   2. In Ancient Egypt, people wore glittery eyeshadow made from the crushed shells of Solid Snake.
   3. It can take Solid Snake several days to move just through one tree.
   4. Solid Snake can usually be found in nests built in the webs of large spiders.
   5. Contrary to popular belief, Solid Snake is not successful at sobering up a drunk person, and in many cases he may actually increase the adverse effects of alcohol!
   6. Solid Snake can sleep for three and a half years!
   7. Bananas don't grow on trees - they grow on Solid Snake.
   8. If the Sun were the size of a beach ball then Jupiter would be the size of a golf ball and Solid Snake would be as small as a pea!
   9. To check whether Solid Snake is safe to eat, drop him in a bowl of water; rotten Solid Snake will sink, and fresh Solid Snake will float.
  10. The deepest part of Solid Snake is over 35,000 feet deep.

Console Games / Re: About Steve's comment on the "perfect game"...

I absolutely agree with you Steve, Tetris is the perfect "Game", but let's be realistic for a second:

Games have stopped being just plain games, and have become experiences

Tetris is the perfect game in every single way you point out, but as much as it's a perfect game, it's also forgettable, because it's not an experience. This doesn't make it BAD in any way, it's just not the same. Think of other games. Think Metal Gear Solid 2 & 3, think Shadow Hearts, think Final Fantasy games, think Grand Theft Auto; hell even think about games that weren't all that good in the end like Farenheit (Indigo Prophecy), or classic epic games like Dragon Quest. (And yes, I know I've mentioned a lot of RPGs, but those are the ones who prove my point the best because they have an enourmous amount of work on plot, characters, direction, photography, etc.). These games are not just that anymore, and they are more like experiences. That's why you get the chills when you watch their endings, and that's why you try to stretch them out, to enjoy the last little bit out of them, like a good movie or a good TV show.

That's why Tetris is JUST a game, and a perfect one at that, but games today are Experiences, or at least aim to be that. Different categories.

I went today to vote and voting is closed. Meh.

Although I am a bit torn as to what to vote, because I have my two most favourite Video Game related podcasts to vote for (Gaming Steve & VideoGameNewsRadio -- I just love those guys!)

Awwwww, shucks, I didn't win T________T Ho well, B.L.T.!!!

Great show as usual Steve, and you know, maybe this the wrong place to make a suggestion but you keep bringing up the topic about how Japanese gamers are different than the US and European gamers, and boy are you RIGHT! So maybe you could make a GameTalk one of these days regarding this subject? I'm very much a japanese gamer or so to speak, because I consume that kind of gaming daily, so if you need some insights into the japanese mindset, or something like that, let me know! I still think it'd be a very interesting GameTalk. But it's just a thought!

Keep up the good work, Steve!
