a week late to be added to The 'Shroom, but it finally got done, and I think with how fucking massive this thing is, hopefully, it'll have been worth the weight.
Me and Stoob worked hard on compiling 100 songs...
G'day there, mates. This year, me and my adorably overweight friend, Packy, have spent a long time talking over cups of berry juice, pondering the secrets of the universe and when the fuck Stooben will write a song about Packy's amazing arse, where we got an amazing idea. What if we hosted a...
This is a bit late, but for Special Issue 111, we are dedicating the issue entirely to the memory of beloved bureaucrat and dear friend, Walkazo, who sadly passed away on March 27th this year. While the traditional method of gathering special section writers for special issues in The 'Shroom has...
Not quite a fan project, but this is the best place for me to put it.
This is an ongoing update on my ever-growing album collection, which sits at about 327 albums so far. Most of them are CDs, I'm saving up for surgery so I can't really spend too much on vinyls at this stage, but that'll...
Some of these are taken from Reddit, but I'll try to pepper this with some of my own.
-2000 B.C.: Wooly mammoths still inhabited Wrangel Island while the Great Pyramid of Giza was being built in Egypt (and no, there's no grain stored in it).
-1811 A.D.: Italian scientist Amedeo Avogadro...
so for those not aware, we're running a little competition over on Critic Corner, the very first to ever be featured in the sub-team. It's a Lightning Opinion Piece Contest, which basically means that you are to submit a short opinion piece about something relating to the topic given - in this...
Lab Zero Games, the team behind Skullgirls, are working on a new video game that blends the platforming exploration of Metroidvania games with the turn-based RPG combat of Valkyrie Profile (albeit with a more dynamic action-oriented focus to the fights), and it looks bloody amazing. They can...

Quizmo's attempt at an Emerald LP got me interested in trying another Nuzlocke challenge, but I thought "ehh why not make it a shitty LP? Everyone on IRC wants me to do it." so here I am doing my first LP, and likely doing it very half-assed, but maybe it'll entertain you
I guess to start...
(there are some technical difficulties with the colouring on the boxes for fake news and fun stuff, and smb is collecting his notes, so please bear with us on that while we try to figure out a solution)

Sorry this took so long to get up, but we had a lot of... technical difficulties and editing before we could make a formal announcement. By now, plenty of you have probably seen it, so... let's discuss!
Your now-legal Statistics Manager, Tucayo is here with some cool stats!
Hell yes, this is the best news I've read all day. Tough luck, Mario4Ever; you could've been playing this game with a non-shitty controller.
It has been exactly one year since the tragic passing of Joshua Paul LeJeune, better known as Axiomist, a former administrator of Zelda Wiki, founder of WiKirby, and highly contributive and prominent member of Nintendo Independent Wikia Alliance (NIWA). He was well known for his friendly...
Yup, sixty issues. How fun. We tried our best to make this issue feel a bit special, but I guess the best we could do was implement a bunch of changes. Changes I will reiterate later along with other announcements, but for now just read the issue and have some nice, fun discussion before we get...
Two guys from the Something Awful forums - including the bloke who pretty much created the Let's Play trend - make fun of really, really bad Youtube Let's Plays, really dumb video games, and other assorted game-related bullshit. Think Mystery Science Theater but more nerdy and less politically...
I stayed up late to do this, so you people better appreciate it. And I just noticed while writing this that the images for Fake News aren't up yet; holy shit, this is annoying. But uhh anyway, discuss...
If anyone is interested in writing for the 'Shroom, I strongly urge you to write for Fun...
Holy shit. Reached over twice the amount of money they hoped to raise inside 24 hours. Everyone donate and support Double Fine's upcoming game, they're an awesome team with a talent for making awesome games.
If any British folks here used GameStop, they're still offering online services to the U.K. Just... they've ditched retail.
If you already know a few, then just label a few others you'd like to learn on top of those ones. Obviously.
I'd love to learn Indonesian (and by extension, Malay) and Turkish. Considering Australia's close ties to both of those nations, they'd be fairly practical !!

Basically, yer favourite games released in 2000, 2009 and all years in-between. Can include any platform; console, computer or handheld, doesn't matter. Don't care how many ye list; it can be 5, it can be 25, whatever suits ye.
Of the games I've played (I have a large collection of games I...
I have a deep fondness for "Waltzing Matilda" by Banjo Paterson, being the unofficial national anthem of Australia and all. Slim Dusty's version is the best one I could find on Youtube.
To go with that, Eric Bogle's "And the Band Played Waltzing Matilda", although I prefer The Pogues' version...
Simply suggest independent games you feel deserve more attention.
RUSH and EDGE by Two Tribes are two very well-designed puzzle games I'd recommend. They're both available on Steam for $4.99 and $7.99, respectively.
I'd love to see a video game based on traditional Australian culture - featuring both the Aborigines and the Colonies - with a more accurate depiction of the country's geography, climate, wildlife, culture and history.
Or hell, just a game about The Dreaming would be nice.
While we're making topics on awesome bands, here's one of the greatest bands in history and THE band of the 70s. Led Zeppelin crossed the boundaries of where hard rock and heavy metal could go far better than any progressive rock act did, and had a knack for always creating a kickass guitar riff...
Discuss anything music-related here.
I still find it sad that no store here sells INXS albums. I mean, honestly, INXS were one of the most popular Aussie groups ever, and I can't find a single store here in Melbourne that sells them. It's just depressing, man. :(
Discuss Sonic songs!
Tell us your favorites, comment on the singers, note if it fit the situation well, or whatever the heck you comment about when talking about this kind of stuff. XP
My favorite is (as my Location and Sig may hint) Dreams of an Absolution. =3
I like the tone, the...
Well, some of you Users who frequently visit the MarioWiki or Userpedia would know, I am making a Comic known as The Shadow Chronicles. I started work on it Months ago, back when the Smash Bros. Dojo!! actually had GOOD updates. As such, I've already finished, like, 30 Issues.
