Re: TV News Report on NY Video Game Law

Um.. I am lost.  Are the games not already showing their ratings on the box already?  What is this law about?  I am so ****ing confused!

Re: TV News Report on NY Video Game Law

I know that news sites have a lot of news to cover, but that comment on the end...what games don't get an ESRB rating? Has anyone seen one? As far as I know, you can't make a game for the big 3 without getting an ESRB rating.

Re: TV News Report on NY Video Game Law

Imports and H-games for the PC.

 

Most of the imports have rateing from their local system though.

Re: TV News Report on NY Video Game Law

Lol, I don't even need to watch the video, I just need to read these comments. It's obviously freaking hilarious

Re: TV News Report on NY Video Game Law

OMG!  Thank you New York government!  What would we do without your infinite wisdom!  Government is best for the people!

Wait a tick...  My GTA IV has a rating...

EGADS!!

They went back in time and enforced this law!  AMAZING!!!

What will they think of next???  Banning bottled water?  Only time will tell!

"...The Law requres a rating and description in the back of the box..."

 

I laughed saying IT'S ALL READY THERE!!!

 

:40 made me laughed harder than I did all day as they say the what the law is WHILE they are showing what's already there...

Re: TV News Report on NY Video Game Law

I was thinking that maybe with this law if some parents try to sue Sony because little Timmy went postal in his schoolyard, the law will prevent this because the games are by law rated, so the parents won´t have any excuse to claim they weren´t uninformed about violent games.

Still, I consider this law is useless because is more to control videogames which is a rising medium than protect society.

Politicians don´t fucking care about people.

Lawl, they show a picture of MGS4 in there. For some reason that strikes me as an odd choice...

Re: TV News Report on NY Video Game Law

While poking around the RNN site for a transcript, I found this entertaining story: Paterson signs junior hunter bill.  Parents, don't buy your 14-year-old that Big Game Hunter title for their console -- put a rifle in their hands and take 'em to the woods for the real thing!

Re: TV News Report on NY Video Game Law

What wrong with the real thing? All it did was bring the state inline with most other states?

Not to say I like the NY law.

Re: TV News Report on NY Video Game Law

I think he means the Irony of people freaking out over Video game violence and how you can "Shoot cops and hookers for points" and then putting a high powered rifle or shotgun in a young teen's hand with out a second thought.

Hunting the shadows of the troubled dreams.

Re: TV News Report on NY Video Game Law

I saw the irony, but I also saw something else.

Re: TV News Report on NY Video Game Law

Another useless law.

Don't really care if it gets passed, 99% of all violent games that parents are all worked up about go through the ESRB already (would any major retailer even carry a non-rated game?) and display their rating quite clearly and, would ya believe it, always in the same place. 

BTW: Good Morning :D

Re: TV News Report on NY Video Game Law

Won't stop them for a second stating that they have won by making the companies do this.  And then show the existing stuff that is already done as proof.  See this rating...see how this system can be set to play it or not...I DID THAT!  Can't wait.

MonteThough from a business side, i would agree with the article. While it would be smarter for developers to slow down, you can't expect EA, Activision or ubisoft to do something like that. Nintnedo's gotta get the third party back.02/28/2015 - 4:36pm
MonteThough it does also help that nintendo's more colorful style is a lot less reliant on graphics than more realistic games. Wind Waker is over 10 years old and still looks good for its age.02/28/2015 - 4:33pm
MonteWith the Wii, nintnedo had the right idea. Hold back on shiny graphics and focus on the gameplay experience. Unfortunatly everyone else keeps pushing for newer graphics and it matters less and less each generation. I can barely notice the difference02/28/2015 - 4:29pm
MonteON third party developers; i kinda think they should slow down to nintendo's pace. They bemoan the rising costs of AAA gaming, but then constantly push for the best graphics which is makes up a lot of those costs. Be easier to afford if they held back02/28/2015 - 4:27pm
Matthew Wilsonhttp://www.forbes.com/sites/insertcoin/2015/02/28/the-world-is-nintendos-if-only-theyd-take-it/ I think this is a interesting op-ed, but yeah it kind of is stating the obvious.02/28/2015 - 2:52pm
prh99The government probably doesn't need an app, but I was think more along the lines of a company that was going to sell the collected info. “If you're not paying for the product, you are the product” sometimes even if you pay.02/28/2015 - 1:50pm
E. Zachary KnightWhat better way for the government to keep track of you than to get you to install an app that lets you insult the government.02/28/2015 - 11:03am
prh99No, but I looked it up and it's basically spyware. Their privacy policy says their apps tracks among other things your location and browsing habits via cookies.02/28/2015 - 8:20am
Ryan RardinHas anyone here heard of an app called iCitizen? It's basically Yelp for politicians.02/28/2015 - 5:16am
Andrew EisenAh, not linked in the way you (and everyone else) want and expect. That's true.02/27/2015 - 10:06pm
Matthew Wilsonthey are not linked in a way that tracks purchases though. the fact that they have to send a code for the other system shows that they are not linked in the way it counts.02/27/2015 - 9:39pm
Andrew EisenAccounts are already linked. Have been for quite a while. Also, Mario vs. Donkey Kong was announced as a cross-buy title during last January's Nintendo Direct.02/27/2015 - 9:25pm
Matthew Wilsonhttp://www.vg247.com/20…/…/27/olli-olli-3ds-wii-u-cross-buy/ I wounder if this is a sign that Nintendo may finally link accounts across the 3ds/wiiu in the near future.02/27/2015 - 9:18pm

ZippyDSMleeDungeons was a so bad so good game to me so I been keeping up with its sequel which will more of a Dungeon Keeper clone. As for pre order out of 7 preorders I was not burnt by 2... Add my contempt of most of modern game design.Ya I have all kinds of hurt.02/27/2015 - 8:40pm
