Yeah, I just heard about this, but there seems to be conflicting reports on him being dead or not.
Well, that's rather depressing.
Yes, it's a shame so many have died in these two years specifically, unlike those lucky fucks who died theee years ago or before.
No there wasn't. Everyone kept claiming that loads of celebrities died last year, which was statistically a crock of shit.
Yes, actually, that's not unusual. We had loads of famous people die in 2015, 2014 and all years previously. Some jackass inaccurately thought that some spectacular number of celebrities died in 2016, which just wasn't true if you look at who died in prior years. It was a stupid misconception that, since you're co tinting it past 2016 to include 2017, now still continues to this day, and I find this incredibly frustrating.
Leonard Nimoy, BB King, Wes Craven, Christopher Lee, the co-creator of Simpsons, the guy behind Stand By Me (the song), Rowdy Roddy Piper, the main guy from Motorhead, Jackie Brown from those shitty books girls love for some reason... yeah, a lot of people died in 2015. But no, let's continue repeating the stupid idea that 2016 and now 2017 are renown for their celeb kill count.
Who tf are half of those people?
Ah, only just saw this. So far we have iconic actor, iconic musician, iconic director, iconic actor, co-creator of incredibly iconic show, iconic singer, iconic wrestler, member of iconic band and iconic writer.
You sound like Ubisoft. Just tell him he's living under a rock and get it over with.
I can understand not recognizing Lemmy. Not everybody's into his awesome music. But if you don't know Rowdy Roddy Piper I think I'll have to disown you as my... I dunno what you were before this, but consider yourself disowned!
I knew Lemmy, I'm a music buff (kind of) obviously the Simpsons co-creator, although I never heard about it, and BB King rings a bell. He's a jazzy guy, right? I dunno. But nobody else.
I'll calling trolling. Other than the author, you've chosen the least well known of the people named to know, when the others are Spock, Count Dooku/Sarumon/Dracula, a very famous horror director behind A Nightmare on Elsm Street and fucking Rowdy Roddy Piper.
Have you followed Hulk Hogan's wrestling storylines at all? Are you seriously unobservant enough to have never seen the man who's just straight up appeared as himself in everything from G.I. Joe to Saints Row IV? Have you never ever looked into the origin of kicking ass and chewing bubblegum? And you claim to be a cultured being.
I remember in 3rd grade when the gym teacher was asking us which athlete was our role model, everyone was giving names of all these people I didn't know or give a shit about since I never was into the traditional popular sports.
When she finally got to me, I proudly exclaimed Rowdy Roddy Piper.
Don't forget about Carrie Fisher. She's the lady who played Princess Leia.
I'll seriously miss all of the great actors and singers which died. Tom Petty was a fabulous singer, but I will miss Carrie Fisher and the others peeps as well.
I'll always prefer Tom Petty's music than this 2017 trash. All the dubstep and everything involved makes the songs really trashy. Not to mention the weird lyrics.
Given all the popularity of zombies, I was more surprised that George Romero's death didn't get more attention earlier this year.
And with Tobe Hooper also just recently dying, John Carpenter's about one of the last major horror directors left that was making a lot of stuff during the height of 70s-80s horror.
I’m sorry but every time I read this title I keep hearing it in that old video game voice of Gauntlet where the game says stuff like “Wizard is about to die!”
Anyway, just to stay on topic here’s some of Tom’s weirder videos.
Oh, I remember gauntlet. Not in the "I was there to experience the real deal" way, but I remember playing it in a few arcades I've been to. It was pretty dificult, and was obviously a shameless moneywhore game.
If you're not playing on console, you have only yourself to blame!
Personally, I feel console ports of arcade games take away the niche of the arcade game.
I mean, sure, there's games like Carnevil, Centipede, or that one Submarine Sim that are much better in the big TV box, but if you're gonna play a Quarter-cruncher like Contra 3 or Gauntlet, it's so much better to have built an arcade machine in the comfort of your own home or have it emulated or something less crazy exorbitant.
Hey, I just said that I enjoy arcade machines, I didn't say that I can afford to play them.
I mean, as long as you pay for paint and lumber and have some nerd slaves in the area, it's not that hard to stick a TV and a desktop tower into a custom cabinet and then use USBs to put different controls into it.
Though to be honest I always wondered what it'd be like to play something like Super Mario 64 on one of those Polar Position things with the chair and the steering wheel/pedals and shit.
Yes, Sentsei. With this information, I'd be willing to give the game a second chance.
You also need to get a friend to play with you, so you can yell at them for shooting the food.
