    Akvod said: Really... I don't get the flipping of logic. You're not obligated to buy the product. You don't have the right to say "Where is my share?". You lose nothing when a firm sets a price too high. The day before and after the release of a game, you lost nothing. You're only unrightfully taking something from somebody else, their labor, their sweat, their dignity as a man, by...

    Another Look At Piracy

    in Gaming Discussion on 08 May 2010

    The internet is serious business...... but seriously, everyone knows piracy is "wrong". Those who do it have their "reasons". If *all* games had great demos then piracy would be less of a problem. For the people that can actually afford to buy (see 1st vs 3rd world economies) trying before buying is a very important. Because value isn't always obvious, I should say rarely even. ...

And the Miranda thing makes me sad because they modeled her after Yvonne who I love.  I'm a chuck fanboy. Alot of developers really need to learn how to model hot women. To have fucked up both Jacqui Ainsley AND Yvonne Strahovski is just...

    Kojima: Console will be dead “in the near future”

    in Gaming Discussion on 08 April 2010

    I find it said that nobody here has brought up streaming technology. There are several services currently in beta with On Live due out in June. I've used the technology. It works and it works good. I don't know who he was addressing or what he is speaking of, but think about where technology is moving. Phones get more bandwidth every generation, fiber optic data lines to peoples houses. WiFi in a...

    Michael Pachter Responds! Thoughts on the Wii Vitality Sensor

    in Nintendo Discussion on 31 March 2010

    As an EMT that uses this "vitality" sensor technology (also known as a pulse oximeter) on every call I need to be convinced how this will work in a video game. Ok, so it detects a persons pulse and blood oxygen level. It could have additional functionality, I'll need to wait till it's released. The device gives the least amount of player input of any of Nintendo's peripherals (if it's primarily...

    3DS announcement “clashes” with DSi XL, says analyst

    in Nintendo Discussion on 30 March 2010

    Analysts are stupid, Nintendo isn't (when it comes to makin' money). Sempuukyaku said it first, the small percentage of people that wanted an XL that actually heard about the 3DS news and then decided to not buy an XL is miniscule. ...

    Okay, what is the deal.....with Waluigi?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 29 March 2010

    Waluigi is a badass. I dunno why people diss him. He has a ridiculous potential for evil, much more so than Wario. You see that man's mustache? All he needs is a cape. One day he is gonna go postal and bring the Mushroom Kingdom to its knees. ...

    So, megaflop GTA: CW for DS reached 1M

    in Nintendo Discussion on 28 March 2010

    My summation for anyone who cares (I read the whole topic and loved it):   The two heavy hitters were Carl2291 and LordTheNightKnight.  Viper1 aptly gave the thread ender on page 16: Is it low for the brand? Yes. Is it low for the game? No. Carl2291 gladly accepted victory on the first question. The problem was that he could not fully accept the validity of the second and many...

    Why Star Fox 2 was never released?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 28 March 2010

    Now nobody fly off the handle here but... the game does exist in its complete form for the SNES. A digital backup image of the game was made available to some. I have seen the game played in person but it didn't really blow me away (if you've played Star Fox 64 then Star Fox 2 is basically a history lesson). You can find videos and screenshots on the internet. If you're really clever......

    Who thinks Allison from NW is hot?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 18 December 2009

    Clearly the internet (or media in general) has distorted the standards of some people. She is highly attractive. She often acts in cute ways and rarely carries herself in a sexy way which given the venue is expected (which is probably the problem people are having describing her). She is eloquent. She is clearly "of age". She is slightly thin, but moves well so I'm gonna say she's just in shape...

    When game "journalists" have their trolling exposed.

    in Nintendo Discussion on 03 December 2009

    I haven't posted in maybe a year but visit the site almost daily. I feel this thread deserves support. The propaganda being spread by some of these "journalists" is blatant hatred. It is unfortunate that they label themselves as news sources. Kenology and others, keep up the good work....

    I finally decided to STOP watching X-PLAY and G4TV.

    in Gaming Discussion on 17 January 2009

    Adam and Morgan weren't so bad back when G4 was still TechTV (before Morgan was "hot", before they destroyed a perfected good channel and replaced it with a perfectly lame channel). For the most part I agree with you about G4, but their Japanese gameshow stuff is pretty hilarious. And sometimes I watch Attack of the Show just to see Olivia Munn (but yes the show is annoying). I wouldn't suggest...
