Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks Super Review
One of the best Zelda games yet? We discuss the review, The Exorcist, and hot school teachers.


Question of the Week
What's the most memorable boss you've ever fought? Was it a good experience with creative solutions or was it some awful, way too hard assface that ruined the game?

New contests this week

In the office

Above: Holiday party! How many of us actually remember this photo being taken?

Above: A delivery of thirteen Final Fantasy XIII cookies brightened our week, but Charlie took a bite before we could take the photo

Above: Lizzie's desk got Twilight'd yet again, and this time no empty space was spared

In the community

    I'd just like to point out that the majority of Irish people do not say fouken but feck[in] is not that uncommon.

    I love that TalkRadar has a username.

    Kinda excited that Chris refferenced Melt Banana. I know it was, technically, a total stab at them, but it made me happy to hear someone else bring them up.

    It just seemed wrong listening to TR without having a landing page to read. Never do it again!
  • ssj4raditz - December 15, 2009 2:46 a.m.

    That first photo looks like more fodder for album cover parody...
  • Metroidhunter32 - December 15, 2009 2:18 a.m.

    One of these days I am going to have to load one of these and see what the fuss is about.
