President Elect Obama...

I think the games were put aside for a bit.  Now that this is done it is time to pick up the controler and do a victory lap or two.

Good luck PE Obama, you have taken on a game too large for this humble college student.

Re: Stewart & Colbert: Don't Play Super Mario Bros. - Vote!

It seems to me that the reason they talk about Super Mario Brothers is the Joe the Plumber reference, and that they know exactly what they're talking about.

Re: Stewart & Colbert: Don't Play Super Mario Bros. - Vote!

Ok. So who should I vote for? People keep telling me to vote, but never who to vote for.

I'm sure Colbert tells you what to think.

They were poking fun at the people who are unware that there's games other than super mario, i think.

That was a good point, though. A lot of people dont put their vote where there mouth is, and I've always personally felt that if you cant get your butt out once every four years, then you shouldn't have the right to complain about what's going on. But in the end, I'm glad that we have the choice to be stupid, even if it's annoying.

Re: Stewart & Colbert: Don't Play Super Mario Bros. - Vote!

lol

 

Really funny.

 

I know that many of us Gamers have faced really serious times but I know that these guys are only joking.

 

I did not care that they went with the old "Super Mario Brothers" as this might be the only Videogame they know, they could have mentioned any other game like Sonic, Tomb Raider, Halo and Grand Theft Auto (on second thought, it is better if they didn't mention GTA because they might have mentioned about shooting Police for 'so called' bonus points.)

 

It is funny, yeah, but in the age where the Nintendo Wii and the Nintendo DS is making almost every parent play Videogames with their younger offspring they could at least have said.

 

"Instead of walking on your Wii Fit, go outside and walk to your ballot box and VOTE NOW!!!!"

 

But I guess saying Don't Play Super Mario Brothers I guess they are talking to the early Videogame Generation steriotype.

 

And I know I can laugh at that.

Don't have a wii fit (don't I sound Irish), Don't have a wii.  But, Warren and I did walk to the polls (about a mile round trip--at least it felt like it,) in the rain and we both voted for Obama.  I think McCain took my state, but only by 12,000 votes.

 

Insanity has its toll. Please have exact change.

Enter key is your friend, but there is such a thing as calling a friend for help too much. The GP commenting system automatically creates an extra blank line when you press enter, you don't need to hit it twice. (That messes me up too.) You also don't need to hit it after every sentence.

Sheesh, I thought I finally had my inner amateur editor locked away but I guess he found another way to wriggle out.

Re: Stewart & Colbert: Don't Play Super Mario Bros. - Vote!

Voting done.  According to Kotaku, Mario voted to oppose the inferior (and possibly fake) plumber this election, so the choice was obvious.

Andrew EisenI think TT Games gets away with multiple LEGO games a year because they're all based on different franchises. If there were two or three LEGO Star Wars games every year, I think people would feel the same fatigue as they do with Assassin's Creed.03/31/2015 - 6:40pm
Andrew EisenIn other words, a hero is male because that's the default. A hero is female because of a gender-related reason. So, male heroes are for everyone. Female heroes are for women.03/31/2015 - 5:32pm
Andrew EisenHer point is that "When archetypal fantasy heroes in games are overwhelmingly portrayed as men, it reinforces the idea that... women should be able to empathize with male characters but that men needn’t be able to identify with women’s stories."03/31/2015 - 5:30pm
Andrew EisenDaniel - She doesn't say that in any of the TvW videos and I doubt she's said elsewhere that all games with male protagonists are male power fantasies. Anyway, you seem to be conflating two different ideas.03/31/2015 - 5:30pm
MaskedPixelantehttps://twitter.com/Yuriofwind/status/583028257890635776 Oh snap!03/31/2015 - 5:14pm
WymorenceFor me it just boils down to the fact that, even at a giant company, when a game comes out annually it just gives it a vibe of being rushed out the door. And god knows Unity sucked some major lemur with all its bugs...03/31/2015 - 4:22pm
PHX CorpI launched my spotify account today, and I kinda went a little overboard with adding music03/31/2015 - 3:59pm
Sora-ChanCon't. Games like AC are a pain to someone like me who likes to play games in order. So when a game gets too many releases too quickly, it puts me off. Only exceptions are games that have no interconnected underlying stories like the FF games.03/31/2015 - 2:53pm
Sora-ChanWikipedia has rarely let me down on matters like this. But yeah... AC needs a break.. like two.. or three... or eight years.03/31/2015 - 2:51pm
ConsterThere's 9 already?! I think I played 1, 2, and the ones inbetween 2 and 3.03/31/2015 - 2:23pm
Sora-ChanCon't There are now Nine... of just the main entries into the series. There are 13 more in the "other games" department.03/31/2015 - 2:15pm
Sora-ChanI tried to get into AC. Was having a decent time with the first one, at which point they had already released three titles. Then a fourth came out... then a fifth... the wall kept growing before I could finish the first.03/31/2015 - 2:14pm
Daniel LewisI think ubisoft should give AC a break before it's milked to death,and i'm a big fan of the games03/31/2015 - 1:15pm
PHX Corphttp://www.polygon.com/2015/3/31/8320017/assassins-creed-chronicles-china-india-russia Assassin's Creed Chronicles is now a trilogy, goes to China, India and Russia03/31/2015 - 1:11pm
Daniel LewisThe only thing said i disagree with is the final quote on Men's experiences are seen to be universal but women are gendered,though doesn't anita say that games with male protagonists are male power fantasies,so in turn both are gendered03/31/2015 - 1:08pm
Daniel Lewisi found the video to be much better than any of the TvW series and it's about time the positive women are put in the spotlight03/31/2015 - 1:06pm
Daniel LewisSo feministfrequency released a positive female character video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gXmj2yJNUmQ03/31/2015 - 1:05pm
Daniel LewisI think the guy who made the direct leak said it was an april fools joke when a real one was announced03/31/2015 - 12:43pm
MaskedPixelanteNo way Nintendo would let information like that get out. Remember, they shut down a memoir about the localization of Earthbound by enforcing a 20 year old NDA on the author.03/31/2015 - 12:42pm
Andrew EisenOh, there's definitely a Nintendo Direct tomorrow, but that beat-by-beat recap is almost certainly bogus.03/31/2015 - 12:20pm
