Re: Play the News features Biden-Palin Debate Game

Here is a game:  Like "America's Got Talent"  There should be 3 buzzers manned by 3 judges.  When questions are asked in a debate, buzzers go off for dodging the issue, using slogans instead of answers, totally changing policy with a past that has been erased on the spot, and down right lying!

I also predict if the Palin/McCain team wins, Sarah will be pushed to the backround rather quickly.  I believe the Republicans, - including John McCain are using her starpower and are all too aware she has no experience, and will elbow her into obscurity.   S.G.

I'm "playing the news" for two weeks and still can't say if i like it or not... well, actually, i do enjoy playing on that site, reading the news, different points of view about them, improving my knowledge of the current debates and so on. Still... you know... i'm not sure i like politic matters shown as entertaining... Anyway, that site is very well built and you can learn a lot surfing it, so... :)

Republicans are stupid...  our economy proves that though.

Re: Play the News features Biden-Palin Debate Game

Yup, it was all those damn Republicans fault!

Re: Play the News features Biden-Palin Debate Game

 Actually it was. Republicans wrote the dregualtion legislation that's helped lead to to the current recession.

Re: Play the News features Biden-Palin Debate Game

Hmmmm political games are just popping up everywhere.

Hmmm a Biden-Palin debate? Sadly, she'll probably get destroyed in it.   :P

Re: Play the News features Biden-Palin Debate Game

 Hopefully. Though maybe the trooper probe will have forced het to step down by then! But yeay, she can't back up her claims, and if Biden grills her about her ID stances and her global warming views, she's not gonna come out lookning like a the same hockey mom she was earlier.

NeenekoI would hope not. Though it is not unheard of for store specific cards to be pretty good.07/30/2014 - 8:17am
E. Zachary KnightDoes anyone, or at least any intelligent person, expect a retail branded credit card to be anything close to resembling a "good deal" on interest rates?07/30/2014 - 7:13am

MaskedPixelanteOf course it's improved. At launch, Origin was scanning your entire hard drive, but now it's just scanning your browsing history. If that's not an improvement, I dunno what is!07/29/2014 - 8:59pm

Sora-ChanSo it's just a matter of having better emulation software. If it can be done with a 3DS game, with all the memory and what not it takes up, it can be done with a GBA title through emulation.07/29/2014 - 7:30pm
Sora-ChanOther VC titles for the NES and Gameboy had the same setup where you couldn't access the homescreen without quitting out of the game til a later update when those games were released for the public outside of the founder program.07/29/2014 - 7:28pm
Sora-Chanthe 3DS can, and does, run GBA games, as seen by the founder gifts, which included a number of GBA titles. As for running GBA games and still having access to the home screen, I beleive it's more of the game emulation software needs to be updated.07/29/2014 - 7:27pm
Matthew Wilsonthe 3ds already swaps os's with the original ds. plus I dont think people expect miverse interaction when playing a gba game.07/29/2014 - 6:06pm
MaskedPixelanteBut that's not the issue, the 3DS is perfectly capable of emulating GBA games. The problem is that it doesn't have enough available system resources to run it alongside the 3DS OS, and thus it doesn't have access to stuff like Miiverse and save states.07/29/2014 - 5:45pm
Matthew WilsonI am well aware that it requires more power, but if a GBA emulator could run well on a original psp, than it should work on a 3ds.07/29/2014 - 5:36pm
ZenThe reason the SNES could run Gameboy, or the Gamecube could run GBA was because their adapters included all of the necessary hardware to do it in the respective add-ons. The systems were just conduits for control inputs and video/sound/power.07/29/2014 - 4:51pm
ZenMatthew: Emulation takes more power than people realize to run a game properly. You can make something run on less, but Nintendo...as slow as they are at releasing them..makes them run as close to 100% as possible. Each game has its own emulator for it.07/29/2014 - 4:47pm
Matthew Wilsonkind of hard to believe since the 3ds is atleast as powerful as the gamecube hardware wise.07/29/2014 - 4:27pm
MaskedPixelanteYes, the 3DS has enough power to run 16-bit emulators, but not at the same time it's running the 3DS systems themselves. You could run the games, but you wouldn't get save states or Miiverse.07/29/2014 - 4:04pm
InfophileRunning GBA on 3DS shouldn't be hard. The DS had flashcarts sold for it that added just enough power to emulate GBA and SNES games, so the 3DS should have more than enough natively.07/29/2014 - 3:37pm
MaskedPixelanteIt's a bunch of people whining about boycotting/pirating Trails in the Sky FC because XSEED didn't license the Japanese dub track, which consists of about 10 lines per character.07/29/2014 - 11:27am
