The end of an era? I block all Youtube ads anyways. I watch NC stuff, but I do that through their site and had it white-listed... not sure what I will do now that they are just using the Youtube version.

Well we have companies like XSeed who have ways to cheaply localize games for the West and they turn a profit. Perhaps there is a similar deal in the reverse? Also, a lot of Japanese understand some English so they may not worry about translating and localizing all that much.

Everyone here is on a doup account. All of the original ones died long ago and no one remembers their old passwords.

Give the Original Series a go again. Everything Shatner does is much funnier now. He was always a drama queen.

Ohana means family. And that means nobody is left behind.

I haven't been to any major game news site in ages besides here and maybe two other sites. Most of my news comes Reddit subs and forums these days.

I think it could be a good thing. The "sellout" nature of game journalism seems to be passing. By that I mean the age where a publisher could "buy" a good review. I am hoping some quality niche sites can rise to the forefront.

I always liked the LEGO games because of my nostalgia for the bricks. But now my Nephew is into LEGOs so we like to play the games when he comes over. I've been stocking up on them. The Lord of the Rings/Hobbit ones were very well done and much deeper than the original Star Wars and other titles. I'd like to hear more about the RTS mode because I might pick it up at that discount price.

I got LEGO City Undercover and I hear that is a great one as well. Very-much a quality GTA style open world game.

I also finally got my Robin and Lucina Amiibo from Australia. Just need Roy, Corrin, and Bayonetta to be wrapped up with the Smash line.

This is a pro-Nintnendo site? Could of fooled me with the amount of salt in the articles around here!

Well, I am a geek so it is probably right up my alley. Though an overboard in the parody department could end up being a turn-off. It needs to be done right. I'll give it a shot after I finish P&R.

It will only strengthen our marriage!

Can't believe that Marshawn Lynch is retiring. I was hoping for one more year with him. Hopefully that frees up some money for a couple promising rookies in the draft.

I spend my time not doing homework and chores like I should be until 8PM Sunday night. :P

If you take into account the Davey Jones stuff from the next two movies, it makes no sense from a narrative standpoint why Sparrow would be so obsessed with finding the Black Pearl when he should have been more concerned with getting away from Jones. Now they start the second movie off with him looking for the things he needs to save his soul from Jones but if it was so urgent then there should have been some hint of that in the first movie, clearly nobody was thinking about that when they made the first movie but they should have been mindful of the events of the first when coming up with a plot to the next one. It makes Jack look like a complete space case running around living it up when he should have been fearing for his life like he was in Dead Man's Chest.

I think this is a perfect case of Jack being Jack. He lives in the moment. I could see him procrastinating on getting the soul debt resolved because he is distracted by getting his ship back. Plus, didn't Jones give a deadline? I thought he was giving Jack a number of years with his saved ship before coming for his soul. I'm sure I remember a conversation where Jack is arguing that the years that the cursed pirates held his boat should not count towards the years he had until Jones came for him.

~Just looked this up online~
Davy Jones: "You've been captain of the Black Pearl for thirteen years. That was our agreement."
Jack Sparrow: "Technically, I was only captain for two years, then I was viciously mutinied upon."
Davy Jones: "Then you were a poor captain, but a captain nonetheless! Have you not introduced yourself all these years as Captain Jack Sparrow?"

The first "guiding rod" mini game in the forest killed SS for me. I never returned to the game to this day. I really should go and complete it.

Wasn't this thread or another in the sub-forum geared towards bouncing new mafia ideas off of each other?

I've been catching up on The Grinder, which is in its first season on Fox right now. It's got a great cast, with Rob Lowe as a guy who just got done as the star of a long-running hit legal drama who moves back to his home town to work in a real law firm with his actual-lawyer brother, played by Fred Savage. I've been looking for new comedy to watch since Community and Parks & Rec ended, and while this isn't quite as good as either of those, I'm really enjoying it.

Would you recommend Community to someone who just got into Parks and Rec and is loving it? I'm about done with S3 and will be in the market for a new comedy once I'm done with that series.

Looks like you still live up to your name-sake! ;)

I always figured they would retain the actual benefits of the petting while removing the more disturbing part of it. Though I expected it to be more like Awakening's meeting hall where random characters popped up to talk to you and you got temporary stat bonuses, items, and exp.

Really, I'm more concerned about whether we'll get new models for Roy and Corrin in the game with their Amiibo. Nintendo has been really great and open with adding content for international versions over the years so I could see them doing it here as well.

I thought it was Super who pulled that off? Or did they do it together?

Boycotting this game even though it is my favorite series and genre because they destroyed the original authorial integrity by censoring a dish washing scene AND they did not do a literal translation of the Kanji dialect. Also because it is digital only.

Nintendo never makes games I like anymore.

Thank you for fixing it. Nice to have it back.

And the first smartass to flip that acronym around is...

Hah! I totally missed that one. I could see them stumbling into a hole in that manner.

Maybe get rid of the S? Nintendo Entertainment Platform? Nintendo Gaming System?

Splatoon has joined the ranks of Dragon Quest and Monster Hunter where they don't fall off charts due to lagging interest, but because everyone already owns the game in the country.
