I’m starting to feel kinda bad… is anyone excited about any of this?
Not just accounts, I’m sure there are families that have multiple Xboxes and would want to share single copies of games. These ideas are lame. If they wanna restrict how games are shared then they shouldn’t sell em on discs.
I agree. Freedom Wars isn’t the most memorable title.
This makes me wish I hadn’t already finished Donkey Kong Country Returns on Wii. The motion controls were my only real gripe and they’re not in this version!
In my mind Let’s Play videos are just like cooking programs. Fun to watch, but you’re still hungry afterwards.
Nintendo should have sponsored the high profile creators instead of doing this. Rather than taking away their income and shutting down support for Nintendo games, they’d actually encourage more support, and be able to advertise their products in the process.
I totally agree. Nintendo is within their rights to do this, but it’s a pretty bad move. People rely on the income they generate from Let’s Play videos, and so they’re obviously just gonna stop covering Nintendo games. This may not be a huge loss in terms of promotion and awareness for Nintendo products, but it’s definitely a big loss in visible fan support.
I think this headline could apply to DLC in any country.
So far the games I’ve put the most time into on my Vita have been Persona 4 and Valkyria Chronicles II (PSP). I definitely recommend those two. Also, check out the Soul Sacrifice demo if you like Monster Hunter, apparently it’s somewhat similar.
A Playstation Plus membership is a great idea, especially if you have a PS3, cause it’ll give you a pile of great games all at once. (You’ll wanna get a big memory card to hold em all though.)
Maybe I’m the exception, but from my experience in the game industry it has been one of the most culturally diverse work environments I’ve ever encountered.
I think if people have a passion for creativity and want to use game design as an outlet they will. It doesn’t really make sense to demand diversity as that undermines the concept of self-expression. If people aren’t making it, they probably aren’t feeling it.
It could also be that women are taking their creativity to other fields. Novel writing, traditional arts like painting, clothing/costume design, make-up art, etc…
By digital I hope they mean Phantasy Star Online 2 for PC and Vita.
A friend of mine went to University to become a vet and the ratio was something like 1 male to 20 females. I don’t hear anyone complaining about the lack of male veterinarians however.
Sorta looks like they just revealed the first and third words?
I loved Eternal Darkness! This looks like it could be pretty good.
What about long cat!? Who is gonna stand up for him!
You’re absolutely right, they should be sending a reimbursement to any person that was victimized.
Thunberg initially wrote that the bitcoin mining idea, which used a distributed network of PCs to solve math problems for which they were rewarded bitcoins, began as an April Fools prank. Thunberg and company “elected to put some test code in the client and try it on a few admin accounts” before deciding “it wasn’t worth the potential drama.”
This alone makes their explanation completely outrageous. An april fools prank that works behind the scenes and basically steals money without you knowing? Who would find this funny?
Have they announced that Realm Reborn will cost that much? Or is that the original pricing?
The only thing I wanna know is how much it will cost. If this is a retail game with a monthly subscription fee again then they will have wasted a lot of time and effort.
Anyone do this? I got the Japanese language pack, but there’s no sign of the 3 abilities and 2 costumes.
I’m pretty glad for this. I wonder if they kept it secret until the last moment so that more sales would go to retailers?
Earthbound has been my favorite game of all time since I first played it and I would never want a sequel created simply because there was a demand for it. And just cause it’s impossible now doesn’t mean it’ll never happen. There was a 12 year wait between Mother 2 and 3, and it was well worth it.
Wow it looks bright. Even on video in a well lit room it’s hard to look at. I wish they’d tone it down a bit.
