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.

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.

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.

 Mario Galaxy Marathon tonight! Just to piss these guys off!

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.

prh99You have to assume they will seize onto any negative to give advertisers the impression that their message and the site's that run their ads are in conflict.10/02/2014 - 2:25am
prh99The unflattering characterization "They don’t know how to dress or behave." & "‘Games culture’ is a petri dish of people who know so little about how human social interaction..." probably didn't help.10/02/2014 - 1:52am
prh99Probably not many as it was purely a vindictive move. The headline alone was plenty of ammo, but for those that did read and complain..10/02/2014 - 1:42am
Andrew EisenI wonder how many of those who complain about that article actually read past the headline.10/02/2014 - 1:37am
prh99http://intel.ly/1tjh1AH http://bit.ly/1rGPHOY http://intel.ly/Zu6go9 it isn't surprising "Gamers are over" didn't go over very well.10/02/2014 - 1:34am
Papa MidnightCan you parlay that to #WriteAGawkerArticle? The cesspool of horrid crap over there extends far beyond Kotaku.10/02/2014 - 12:34am
Andrew EisenWow! Intel dropped Gamasutra due to GameJournoPros? Over Matt Matthews? The only Gamasutra guy in the group? Who hasn't written a single thing about #GamerGate at the site? Where did you read that?10/02/2014 - 12:32am
Neo_DrKefka#WriteAKotakuArticle "#GamerGate is responsible for breaking millions of Intel powered macbooks after angry SWJ hipsters slam them shut" or "How Toxic Processors from Intel causes sexism. "10/02/2014 - 12:15am
Neo_DrKefkaSo Intel has dropped Gamesutra due to there support of your Gaming News Cabal Fudge. Anti GamerGate article soon? Or like your e-mails are you hoping this narrative dies down soon?10/02/2014 - 12:14am
Andrew EisenWell, time to eat some dinner and work on the Hyrule Warriors guide until bedtime!10/02/2014 - 12:11am
Andrew EisenJust finished my stream. That... could have gone better. Technical issues prevented me from playing a console game so I instead played and bitched about The Walking Dead for two hours. Oh well, the folks watching still seemed to enjoy it.10/02/2014 - 12:09am

quiknkoldAndrew : Mostly I decided there were better people who could explain what was going on, or fight any battles that may come up. so I decided not to talk about it anymore.10/01/2014 - 8:49pm
Andrew EisenI don't recall you promising that. GamerGate is not a taboo discussion here. Anyway, thanks for the link. Very interesting.10/01/2014 - 8:47pm
quiknkoldI know I promised to not talk about Gamergate again, but Intel just pulled sponsership from Gamasutra over it http://techraptor.net/2014/10/01/gamasutra-intel/10/01/2014 - 8:40pm
