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.

Zenemulator...it's not just a slap job that makes "some" work..they do it for each which is why they work so well. I would rather have the quality over just a slap job.07/30/2014 - 5:48pm
ZenMatthew there is a difference between "worked" and "accurate". You play the Nintendo VC titles they play as damn close to the original as possible. The PSP would just run them as best they could, issues and all. And Masked...EACH VC title has their own07/30/2014 - 5:48pm
MaskedPixelanteOnce again, the 3DS already HAS a GBA emulator, it just can't run at the same time as the 3DS OS.07/30/2014 - 4:54pm
Matthew Wilsonyou cant street pass in ds mode ether, and if moders can make a gba emulator that runs very well on the psp as I understand it. you are telling me that Nintendo devs are not as good as moders?07/30/2014 - 4:49pm
Zenperformance. Halo 1 and 2 worked great because they actually did custom work on each of them...just like Nintendo does now lol07/30/2014 - 4:08pm
Zenexisting hardware while the GBA has to be emulated completely. Same reason the 360 couldn't run most Original Xbox games correctly, or had issues because they just did "blanket approach" for their emulation which led to game killing bugs or horrible07/30/2014 - 4:07pm
ZenSora/Matthew: It's not just Miiverse, but the whole idea of streetpass and things like that would be affected if the OS is not running. And just because a 3DS game can be downloaded and run does not mean that GBA can as easily. Those 3DS games use the07/30/2014 - 4:06pm

Sleaker@EZK - I think some people are concerned beacuse it's a predatory technique targetted toward younger people that don't understand on top of offering the worst interest rates of any retailer around.07/30/2014 - 11:33am

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
