    Hey, at least in the first SSB you got to fight that “Master Hand” thing…that made sense, it was you, a video game character masquerading as a child’s play thing, fighting your master, you, the person playing with the child’s play thing…can you not see the implications? Man versus Creator…these gaming icons were fighting God, on their own terms, so long as God as Hand didn’t bitchslap the shit out of you…see, that was deep. SSBB single player just doesn’t have the existential implications of such a grand endeavor. Or maybe I’m just reading into this.

"BEST OF HUMOUR... Hardcasual is the magic mirror for gamers who aren’t afraid to laugh at themselves, and each other."

"I liked Hardcasual when it was serious. Then they made a joke about me and turned into a comedy site. Now I like them even more... These guys are like The Onion of video games."
