Too many words. Did not read. This is the kind of quirky visual thing that is best suited for a short video.

/ my graduate degrees weep.

Tell Ron White that and he'll tell you that these guys shoot better than real police officers!

If you stay inside; it's hard to get mauled.

FTFA:. Neither fits the durable stereotype of video game fanatics as pasty, basement-dwelling gnomes.

Lovely. Have we still not grown passed this stereotype yet?

If you asked them what venison is they would say a city in Italy.

Being able to spot something on a 42" screen from three feet away. Not impressed.

I used to eyeball Cessna Skyhawks at three miles, during the day.

To be fair I resemble a dwarf more than a Gnome.

As someone that hunts, this game is fun enjoyed by fellow hunters while out drinking in a bar. Will be my first video game I purchase after I win powerball on wednesday.

1. I have never heard of anyone named DerHohannesian being a Kentucky native.
2. Much less one that played hockey.

Meh. I used to bullseye womp rats in my T-16 back home and they're not much bigger than 2 meters!

I'm not surprised. Take any hobby in the world and there's going to be somebody that takes it to the next level. This one seems like it'd be a pretty expensive hobby, unless the game lets you free-roll if you do well enough. Though, hell, there are worse things you could do while drinking.

\Like driving.

Someone found a way to write an article about their bar.

I don't care for the UI of that site. Functioned badly in ff and chrome. Also, did anyone read the linked article about "How My Roommate Ruined My Life'? The lady who wrote that has't a shred of self awareness. She literally annoys, and violates her room mate and then gets mad because doing THAT made her feel uncomfortable. It has to be comment bait. No one gets paid to be that ignorant.

On each screen the goal is to kill the three male bucks . . .

As opposed to the highly elusive female bucks?

Disposable Rob: Someone found a way to write an article about their bar.


That was my first thought as well...


Someone is using the Hitchhikers technique to pay down a bar tab.

Ah, feminists. Calling video game players pasty, basement-dwelling gnomes with one mouth, calling us sexist pigs for not including them with the other.
