      I tried to click on your ad, but nothing happened.

  2. Looking at the Wiki entry for GAME, I can't say the company looks all that healthy regardless. I don't think it's entirely due to digital distribution however, so that part Notch can feel free to eat. "Administration" appears to be the UK's equivalent to bankruptcy/etc. The only reason they came out of it is because someone bought them. The same company that offered to buy them prior to them going into administration actually - but was refused. From their practices listed on the wiki, they're not much different from Gamestop (And the references of electronic boutique, which was bought out by gamestop probably shows why...). So that part I'd have to admit he's right about. It would be fun to watch it's demise. As much fun as watching gamestop go bankrupt. I'm more concerned with the loss of jobs rather than someone's opinion on a company that probably has no real effect on his industry. It's easy for Minecraft guy to say he's having "fun" watching the demise because he's made around $8 billion on his little game so far. I've been unemployed before and it's not "fun". Devs have really got into pissypants mode the past couple of years, hiding behind the piracy and gamestop is bad labels. There have been a lot of good games out this gen, but some quality of games have gone down while the amount to make them have gone up. Gamers are just as much to blame as we can vote with our wallets, but most won't because they like their CoD every year.
  3. Happy 20th, Wolfenstein 3D.

      Amazing. I think I'll fire up my favorite version, the Atari Jaguar version, this evening in celebration.

  5. Genesis and Saturn. Recently picked up Shining Force 2 and Akumajou Dracula X (japanese version of Castlevania: Symphony of the Night).

  7. The games industry is killing itself from within. There was this article today from the makers of Time Splitters: http://www.computerandvideogames.com/346234/timesplitters-4-nobody-was-interested-in-signing-us-says-dev/ Also, the creator of Minecraft said a while back the demise of GAME stores in the UK was "fun to watch". He also said the reason for GAME's demise was digital distribution. Not long after he said that, GAME came out of administration (I think that's the term) and looks to be recovering. Wonder if Minecraft guy is eating his words?
  8. Recently won Shining Force 2 in an ebay auction for about $20 CIB. Will be playing t his soon. For anyone who has Steam on their PC, Sega just released another round of classic games.
  9. Another vote for Dreamcast and adding Sega Master System. It was better than the NES, but lack of 3rd party support because of Nintendo's policy at the time all but doomed it.
  10. "Have you played Atari today?" ~Ronald Reagan

  11. Don't forget EA shutting down online functions for a game requiring an online pass (EA MMA).
  12. Listening to Madonna. Apparently I have no shame.

      Hope it's not her latest album. What a load of suckage.

      Haven't listened to Madonna since "True Blue", though I did like "Say Goodbye" - but yes, Madonna has become pure suckamania.

      Was listening to Hung Up on the Confessions of a Dancefloor or something. It's about five years old.

  13. Filled out an app for a job with a gov't contractor. That crap was brutal.

      Nice. Clearance? If so, those forms are looooooong.

    2. doubleminor


      Yeah. Took me some of last night and most of today to finish and double/triple/quadruple check.

  14. The only streaming service I use is what's available through Dish Network (Dish Online), their PPV and HBO Go. I swore off Netflix years ago after they sent me broken and wrong discs multiple times in the DVD by mail service. I still go out and buy DVDs.
