Re: ECA T-Shirt Contest

Thanks good job;

Btw, I think Atari and Midway will drop out too, but mostly travesti because  these guys have done nothing travesti or little and need to start saving costs. and dizi izle

YES.

Now I don't have to get off my ass for the important shit anymore!

Whats next, ordering pizza from Xbox live?

Wait... I think that sounds like a good idea.

But I think voting should MAKE you get off your ass, and see outside or a second while you go vote. I mean, your picking the president of the United States of America for God's Sake... least you can do is drive down there and punch out a card.

Re: ECA T-Shirt Contest

I'm all for freedom of ttnet vitamin speech and allowing rent a car game makers to put whatever they want in games, but there's one thing about this app that has me scratching my head.  Correct me if I'm wrong, but from araç kiralama the previous article araba kiralama on this I gathered that players can use Google maps in-game to find the other (real-life?) dealers in their area.  If this is the case, has travesti anyone considered what's stopping someone from using this app to actually move drugs between hands for reals?

But majority araba kiralama of their outrage araç kiralama stems from what it could DO TO children, not the content itself.  Talk to one of these people and you'll find they don't think any books kiralık araba should be banned from children.  Mention American Psycho and they talk about kiralık araç the redeeming value of using imagination to construct a story.  Reading, no matter what the content, is largely viewed as a consequenceless activity for people of any age.  The reason why I mention American Psycho is because of the content itself.  Gaming never has and likely never will have any scenes where someone has sex with a severed head.  Not gonna happen.  Yet despite this, they'll fight tooth and nail to protect their children from two boys kissing in Bully but whatever they read is harmless... yeah.

The entire arguement is kiralık oto based upon a social normality inflicted by luddites who can't figure out the controls for Halo so it's frightening and terrifying and obviously the cause of youth violence on the rise even though, in reality, it's in decline (which is actually a HUGE suprise given minibüs kiralama the economies status).  In  a perfect world, we would have parents that actually parent.  The idea of sales restrictions on media on oto kiralama any form to accomidate parental unwillingness to get involved with their child's life is the real problem to me.  Here I am, 32 years old, and being held up at a self-scan rent a car needing to show ID before I can buy a $10 M rated game all because Soccer Momthra can't be bothered to look at the crap Billy Genericallystupidson does in his free time.  It's too hard for her, so I have to suffer?

Re: ECA T-Shirt Contest

Here are a few shirt slogans I thought up, some better than others.  Use them if you like.  Change the wording, add art...whatever you feel makes a good shirt.

 

 

 

If killers were born of violent video game play,

 

You’d be dead before you finished reading this…

 

 

 

If violent video games harm children,

 

How come no one’s writing laws that make facilitating such play a form of child abuse?

 

 

 

Age recommendation on the front, content descriptors on the back.

 

What?  Too much for you to remember?

 

 

 

Don’t want your children playing M-rated games?  Don’t let them!

 

…or do you really need the gov’t to do your job for you?

 

 

 

It’s okay to suck at video games,

 

It’s not okay to suck at parenting.

 

 

 

 

To determine the appropriateness of a video game for your child, use:

ESRB ratings

Parental controls

The Internet

You’re damn head

 

 

 

-Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo-

 

If you’re serious about providing entertainment to gamers of ALL ages,

 

Why won’t you allow AO games on your consoles?

 

 

 

 

I’ll decide which games are appropriate for my kids.

 

 

 

 

Warning!  Player of Violent Video Games

 

Studies show I may blast you with a loud noise.

 

 

 

 

 

Video game violence has not desensitized me to REAL violence.

 

Kill someone in front of me and I’ll run screaming.

 

 

 

Andrew Eisen

Re: ECA T-Shirt Contest

here's my variation on the last one:

Video game violence has not desensitized me to REAL violence.
Heck, the violence on CSI makes me cringe.

岩「…Ace beats Jack」

岩「…I can see why Hasselbeck's worried about fake guns killing fake people. afterall, she's a fake journalist on a fake news channel」

Re: ECA T-Shirt Contest

I like where you're going with that but seeing as CSI is a television show (fake violence), I think you'd be better off substituting it with something real (like the nightly news) as it better ties into the first line.  For example:

Video game violence has not desensitized me to REAL violence.

Heck, I can't even get through the nightly news without covering my eyes.

Re: ECA T-Shirt Contest

Is it just me, but given the GameStop vid that was referenced here a few days ago, should the prize really be a gift certificate to GameStop?  Maybe your choice of Sony, MS, Nintendo or Steam credits instead?

Re: ECA T-Shirt Contest

Hmmm...how about a charicature style image of Jack Thompson over a deep fryer with a generic fast food uniform on, and a caption that reads: F**$ing ECA.../ or: F**$ing video games...

 

 

-Remember kids, personal responsibility is for losers! For information on games and psychology, look up: Jonathan Freedman(2002)Block & Crain(2007) Just to name a few...

Reality/////////////////////////////////////Fantasy. Seems like a pretty thick line to me...

Re: ECA T-Shirt Contest

thshirt2 copy by you.

My worst one yet

Re: ECA T-Shirt Contest

tshirt1 copy by you.

I'm from the UK, so I'm not eligible to enter but i'm posting this one anyways. ;)

Re: ECA T-Shirt Contest

How do you post the pic?  Can't seem to figure it out...

Also, am I the only one who thinks the ECA's logo looks like a penis?

Re: ECA T-Shirt Contest

How's this one?

Re: ECA T-Shirt Contest

Well, I'd like to enter (despite having no ECA where I live), but they've decided to make this a USA/Canada only affair, so oh well. You'd think, with the advent of the internet, that everyone would be running worldwide competitions by now, but hey.

Re: ECA T-Shirt Contest

It has to do with the regulations of the Non-profit status. They probably would otherwise.

Re: ECA T-Shirt Contest

 Ok, it has nothing to do with the ECA, but it'd be cool to have a picture of Jack with a word bubble yelling 

"BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD, SKULLS FOR THE SKULL THRONE!"

 

 

......aaaand that makes sense only to 40k players :P but still makes me laugh.

Re: ECA T-Shirt Contest

JT wouldn't worship Khorne.  He's totally a Tzeentch worshipper.  Think about it, he's totally insane and believes in a false "truth" given to him by the Great Manipulator. :)

If we're going with a 40k theme, how about using one of those pictures of five Space Marines holding out aganist a hoard of 'Nids/Orks/Chaos/whomever.  The Space Marines could have the ECA as their insignia and the baddies could be based on either censorship-fanatics or EA (who would totally have to be based on 'Nids then, with a Carnifex representing SecuROM.)

...Ok, I'm done gushing about 40k now. 

Re: ECA T-Shirt Contest

 hehe, one more and i'll let it rest.

 

ESA is the Inquisition!

 

ok, done with the 40k references now.

Re: ECA T-Shirt Contest

It might be wise to use http://99designs.com/

Might get more submissions and it is also just a easy way for people to see what has been submitted.

The Campaign For Liberty used it to get art for the Rally for the Republic and I think it was pretty successful.  It's over but it'll give you a good idea on how it works.  http://99designs.com/contests/10532

It would also allow everyone to view the possible submissions, see which ones were eliminated, see which ones that are out of hand and give guidance in that regard.  I dunno, worth thinking about I think.  Might help making a larger turnout and even receiving a higher quality result.

Re: ECA T-Shirt Contest

How about a big Securom logo?

 

 

Oh wait..

Re: ECA T-Shirt Contest

I was never able to buy the previous year's winning shirt....I want that shirt, "Contrary to Popular Opinion, these do not make me a killer"

Re: ECA T-Shirt Contest

Re: ECA T-Shirt Contest

Wait, nevermind, just checked their site, they have it for sale.

It wasn't on sale for a long time though..

Re: ECA T-Shirt Contest

XD  I was about to say... I'm wearing that t-shirt right now...

Re: ECA T-Shirt Contest

"The ECA: Proving Jack Thompson is a idiot for 10 years running."

Jokes aside, sounds like a lot of fun.

Re: ECA T-Shirt Contest

I was going to say something about advertising and relevance, but eh, if ECA can't advertise here from time to time then there's a problem considering who's paying for what and what not.

Good luck?

Andrew EisenYes, the Wii U upscales but rendering in a higher resolution looks a hell of a lot better.08/01/2014 - 10:35pm
Andrew EisenIt's pretty. Lots of videos of it floating around. Just search "Xenoblade dolphin" and you'll find them.08/01/2014 - 10:32pm
ZippyDSMleeThe WII upscales tho. Matthew: It might be becue cartoonish desings do not age as fast as presudo realisim.08/01/2014 - 10:29pm
Matthew WilsonPeople who have run the Mario Galaxy games on a emulator have said they look better then most xb1/ps4 games when upscaled, so it would be interesting to see a upscaled version of Xenoblade08/01/2014 - 9:24pm
Andrew EisenHeck, it would probably sell better to newbies anyway. Even with its awesome art direction, the game looked dated when it came out years ago. I imagine an SD version would be a tougher sell.08/01/2014 - 8:55pm
Andrew EisenBecause it would be cool, would serve the game's fantastic art direction well and encourage people who've already played it to buy it again.08/01/2014 - 7:42pm
ZippyDSMleeWhy bother with an HD relese just repack the damn thing and promote it since it will play on the WIIU anyway....08/01/2014 - 7:04pm
Andrew EisenPlus, with Nintendo carrying the Wii U almost all by itself, it could help plug one of the unfortunately inevitable release schedule gaps.08/01/2014 - 3:23pm
Andrew EisenAn HD re-release would be cool though. It's a great game (and quite the looker, especially when up-rezzed) and more people should play it (the game had a limited release at a time when the Wii was all but dead an buried).08/01/2014 - 3:21pm
E. Zachary KnightSo no, people are not going to need to play the Wii game to undstand or enjoy the Wii U game.08/01/2014 - 1:27pm
E. Zachary KnightFrom what I understand, the two games have as much to do with eachother as Final Fantasy and Final Fantasy 2.08/01/2014 - 1:26pm
MaskedPixelanteIt's my secret hope that Nintendo announces Xenoblade HD to be released in the leadup to Xenoblade Chronicles X, or at least a mass market version of the first game so that people aren't going into this one blind.08/01/2014 - 12:40pm
PHX CorpI'm going to do a test stream later today, if anyone is intrested07/31/2014 - 2:40pm
Andrew EisenYes, I'm such a big Nintendo dork that I read Nintendo's quarterly financial reports.07/31/2014 - 2:09pm
Andrew EisenCool tidbit - Mario Kart 8 sales account for more than half of total Wii U software sales for the last quarter even though it was only available for the last third.07/31/2014 - 2:09pm
Andrew EisenStill a pretty cool promotion. Unfortunately for me, I'm not interested in purchasing Mario Kart 8 and I already owned or didn't want any of the free games on offer.07/31/2014 - 1:43pm
Andrew EisenInteresting that EU had 10 games to choose from while North America only had four.07/31/2014 - 1:41pm
MaskedPixelanteIt certainly worked, I probably would never have bought Mario Kart 8 if it didn't come with a free copy of Wind Waker HD.07/31/2014 - 1:14pm
Andrew EisenI imagine will see similar promotions like "Buy Mario Kart 8 get a download code for one of these specific games" but almost certainly not for all of its (however you would define) biggest releases.07/31/2014 - 11:24am
MaskedPixelanteI wonder if Nintendo is going to be doing "buy one get one free" promos for all their biggest releases going forward.07/31/2014 - 10:48am
