Re: ESRB Holiday Card

Aprrently, some atheists and non-Chirstian groups are offended by the world "Chirstmas" because it has the word "Chirst" in it.  I guess it is some type of strawman to piss people off and cause a flame war.

Yeah, I understand that, but for the sake of the kids, they can just get their heads out of their asses and get over it.  This isn't the season to be an asshole, it is the season to come together with family and friends.

Also for the Aussie Gamers who don't have snow, perhaps the OFLC should make a Christmas card with a hot sunny day at the Beach and Santa in his swimming clothes delivering PlayStation 2, 3 & PSPs, XBox360s and Nintendo Wii's and DS's.


And hopefully in the next two years there could be an R18+ rating for Videogames if all goes well.

Re: ESRB Holiday Card

After having an icecicle land on my head, this warms my heart.

Happy holidays all!

Re: ESRB Holiday Card

Come on, it's Christmas/Hanukkah/Quanza/etc. Happy Holidays, everyone!

Re: ESRB Holiday Card

i dunno with all the religious descrimination during this season should the holidays be rated "E"?

more like "T" or something perhaps... :p

 

j/k not a fan of the holidays, but doesn't mean others aren't, so have fun all!

the age of the gamer is beginning and '08 was merely the start :)

Re: ESRB Holiday Card

Makes me wonder what a 'T' or 'M' version might look like... ;P

Re: ESRB Holiday Card

political correctness is in itself politically incorrect.

its actually more polite to call someone a retard (Slow) that it is to call the mentaly ill (messed up)

Re: ESRB Holiday Card

Re: ESRB Holiday Card

I've never actually heard of anyone who objects to the word Christmas, methinks it's just a giant strawman.

Although if such a person did exist you get to ignore them.

As we all know people can get offended by anything.

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
Sleaker@MP - devolver Digital issued a twitter statement saying they would replace the NISA pledge.07/29/2014 - 10:57am

Papa MidnightIt's not bad so far, but I am honestly not sure what to make of it (or where it's going for that matter)07/28/2014 - 9:44pm

MaskedPixelanteNah, I'm fine purple monkey dishwasher.07/28/2014 - 4:05pm
Sleaker@MP - I hope you didn't suffer a loss of your mental faculties attempting that.07/28/2014 - 3:48pm
MaskedPixelanteOK, so my brief research looking at GameFAQs forums (protip, don't do that if you wish to keep your sanity intact.), the 3DS doesn't have the power to run anything more powerful than the NES/GBC/GG AND run the 3DS system in the background.07/28/2014 - 11:01am
ZenMatthew, the 3DS already has GBA games in the form of the ambassador tittles. And I an just as curious about them not releasing them on there like they did the NES ones. I do like them on the Wii U as well, but seems weird. And where are the N64 games?07/28/2014 - 10:40am
james_fudgeNo. They already cut the price. Unless they release a new version that has a higher price point.07/28/2014 - 10:19am
E. Zachary KnightMatthew, It most likely is. The question is whether Nintendo wants to do it.07/28/2014 - 10:12am
Matthew WilsonI am sure the 3ds im more then powerful enough to emulate a GBA game.07/28/2014 - 9:54am
Sleaker@IanC - while the processor is effectively the same or very similar, the issue is how they setup the peripheral hardware. It would probably require creating some kind of emulation for the 3DS to handle interfacing with the audio and input methods for GBA07/28/2014 - 9:30am
Sleaker@EZK - hmmm, that makes sense. I could have sworn I had played GB/GBC games on it too though (emud of course)07/28/2014 - 9:23am
E. Zachary KnightSleaker, the DS has a built in GBA chipset in the system. That is why it played GBA games. The GBA had a seperate chipset for GB and GBColor games. The DS did not have that GB/GBC chipset and that is why the DS could not play GB and GBC games.07/28/2014 - 7:25am
IanCI dont think Nintendo ever gave reason why GBA games a reason why GBA games aren't on the 3DS eshop. The 3DS uses chips that are backwards compatable with the GBA ob GBA processor, after all.07/28/2014 - 6:46am
