I have not had need of BonsaiK's services as of yet. But if I do, I now know where to find him :)

Good to see Bon getting some recognition! He certainly deserves it. I've gotten help from him a few times during my time here.
Also, good damn that man has some answers on him.

Alright, how did I not see BonsaiK coming?
Stupid stupid stupid!

Anywho, I did not know BonsaiK was in the Music... thing... TEACHING! I believe it said he taught people.
Such a long read, I started to zone out on some of the answers.

Well cannae think of anything to say other than "Good on ya Mr.[1] Bon".
Now you just need to answer my question.

Why is the "K" at the end capitalized?

[1] Yeah... I had to check on this one

Well he can certainly fill out an interview. It was enjoyable. I never knew that he had a "relationship" style thread. Congrats though on being in the spotlight. Always nice seeing people get the recognition they deserve.

If anyone deserves it, this guy does. He's like one of those old men who sit beside the fire in slippers and spout words of wisdom every time he speaks.

This should definitely have happened sooner.
This guy is not only the love guru, but quite possibly the most level-headed person I have ever seen on the internet.

Try to imagine me respectfully bowing.

He got the recognition he deserved.
He's 'Dr.Love'

The most mature person I've found in the Internet.

Glad to see he was spotlighted. We must plug his relationship thread more. Possibly make it a sticky. That would be just awesome.

And Bosniak, I completely disagree about Bioshock. I'll put that argument in a spoiler.

Phwew, seriously though, congrats.

It's hopefully going to get a lot more love soon. ;D

Congratulations BonsaiK. I really enjoy reading your thread and the way you handle it. Kudos to you for helping people! :)

Congratulations.

Some great wordy answers there; a pleasure to read.

Thanks for all the positive comments, guys! I sometimes wonder if the things I do here impact anyone at all, as I almost never get mentioned in circle-jerk threads and such, so it's good to get some recognition. It's especially nice to see that people appreciate the Relationship Problem Thread because I've been getting a fair bit of stick for it lately, presumably because helping people on the Internet is uncool or something.

Irridium:

And Bosniak, I completely disagree about Bioshock.

Oh come on, SS2 and Bioshock so close that they're just about the same game! Everything that's in System Shock 2 is mirrored in Bioshock, as Yahtzee's review points out. Cybermods/Adam, weapon upgrades, plasmids/psi, hacking, level design that makes you backtrack endlessly through bits you've already been through, massive sidetracking quests, even random food, it's all there. Even the vita-chambers are there, something that SS2 vets seem to forget - there's a "nano-reconstruction unit" in System Shock 2 that performs exactly the same function as the vita-chambers in Bioshock. System Shock 2 also had pissweak RPG elements too, because certain builds simply couldn't complete the game. "Role playing" doesn't refer to "rolling the dice", it refers to "playing a role", but if you don't have a choice of viable roles, well... the amount of RPGing you can do therefore becomes limited...

"BosniaK" sounds cool, maybe I should change my name...

What's the K for? That's a secret... ;)

Considering his helpfulness with relationships and music, I think he deserved this, even if we disagree about certain things (he knows what I'm talking about...).

Now if you'll excuse me, I'll go make several ham-fisted attempts to boost my fame here.

I don't think the Escapist could be dumbed-down. There's a simple reason for it, which is that there's a forum attached. Themis Media can see people's reactions directly and can see who their demographic is from what people write in the threads and on the comments about the articles.

BonsaiK:

DAMN!
Well, time to break out the thumbscrews....

Aww, I can't torture you, you're too nice...like a male, slightly less sunny version of Aylaine.

Oh and I should include this for anyone curious about the last question:

Listening to this really drives home how far so much of rap has gone downhill since...

Although I do not currently require BonsaiK's services, he honestly deserves a medal for his relationship thread (guess you'll have to settle for the "star" badge! ;) ). His responses are always coherent, full of sense, and just plain commendable. Another well-deserved community spotlight!
