I drive a 2005 GMC Canyon.

It's old and arthritic, there are bits that have fallen off years ago and never gotten replaced, but dammit, when I hear that engine purr, I stop wanting a sports car immediately. The Canyon's my Old Faithful.

Also, protip: don't fuck with Alchemy or strike up any deals with ancient Japanese Shinigami gods no matter how tempting the deal or how suavely dressed the Shinigami is.

You people and your sports cars and roomy minivans. :p I just got myself a used (106,000 miles) Toyota Corolla. Livin' the high life in a cramped $2,500 vehicle. At least the gas mileage is really good, and I should be able to pull off some of the good parts from my old Geo Prizm.

Is it an AE86? I couldn't help it. ;D

I have a 2010 Honda Civic that does its job.
I'm happy.

I'm only 36. I guess I've got 2/3's more of my life to go before clocking out  ;D

Pretty much yeah I'd say. At a certain point things deemed "adult" pass from the alluring and risque to the mundane. It helps that we can't really talk about those more risque things though XD.

But for a serious answer to a joke question: Purely from a demographics perspective it's likely we're mostly past the early-20s stage of adulthood. Let's say someone jumped onboard with the series with Order of Ecclesia, which I think we could say was more or less the last new game likely to develop an interest in the older series lore and games for someone playing it. If they were 16 when they got the game they'd be 24 now, or 28 if they got the game when they were 20. And I think it likely that most hardcore fans of the series got onboard with earlier games than that.

It's not that Castlevania gameplay hasn't stood the test of time, the best (and arguably even the mediocre) entries in the series have timeless gameplay. Easily as timeless as something like Mario. It's just that it hasn't been marketed properly in so long.

Well said Ratty.
I have a feeling we'd have lesser and lesser young'uns as time passes.
Unless, Bloodstained does it's job of luring kids to revisit the older IGA-related titles.

Now, can we go back to talking about cars?  ;)

Just on cars I read Jorge's post and they had a brand new Honda civic on display next to where I work. Looks pretty sweet imo.

I'm shopping for used cars essentially as we speak -- the Canyon's... not having a good time and it's worth checking into replacements sooner rather than later when I may noty even have a primary vehicle.

I need to sell my Mitsubishi Lancer 2005. It's a good and reliable car, I had it for around 3 years now. But it drinks fuel quickly and it seems like it gets less fuel-efficient as time passes, this annoys me. I hope to sell it this year and buy a more fuel-efficient car.

Dear GOD I want a Tesla car. Not very feasible for Alaska though -- it's a LOOOOOOONG way between towns the further out from Anchorage you get.

I have an 08 Ford Ranger that I bought from my dad, and I lllllooove it. Never really entertained the idea of owning a truck before, but having a small pickup is perfect for me: I can use it to haul work materials/trash/etc., 4wd comes in handy in the snow, and it's still easy to park vs. a full size. I don't think I ever want to go back to a passenger car again. I just wish Rangers were never discontinued.  :(
I like big butts, but I do have the tendency to lie quite a bit.

Partially, yes. Now that you are aware of this, make those sprites!
