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

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.

Andrew EisenThe story you just linked to? The story you asked if anyone had seen? Yes, THAT obnoxiousness. I've heard it parroted for nearly two years now.11/27/2014 - 7:57pm

Andrew EisenI've heard the same obnoxious horse poo for years. It's nothing new.11/27/2014 - 7:45pm
ZippyDSMleeAlso anyone see this? http://guardianlv.com/2014/11/anita-sarkeesian-unmasked-feminist-icon-or-con-artist/11/27/2014 - 7:28pm
ZippyDSMleeEvil within is a badly designed game.11/27/2014 - 7:28pm
Andrew EisenSure but you said "widens," hence my confusion. Looking into it, yep, there's a tweak to completely re-frame the image, adding more info at the top and bottom. You apparently need a fairly beefy rig to keep it running smooth when you do that though.11/27/2014 - 6:48pm
Matthew Wilsonthere is vertical fov, not just horizontal fov11/27/2014 - 6:38pm
Andrew EisenWell, you can widen it to 3:1 or even 10:1 but I don't know why you'd want to. From what I understand it's the missing visual info at the top and bottom that some object to, not that there isn't enough on either side.11/27/2014 - 6:36pm
Matthew WilsonI think it widenss the fov, so you get to see more.11/27/2014 - 6:31pm
Andrew EisenI don't see how as doing so would not add any visual information to the top or bottom of the screen.11/27/2014 - 6:04pm
Matthew Wilsonfrom what I read, getting rid of the black bars and stretching it out made for a better play experience.11/27/2014 - 5:59pm
Andrew EisenFrom what I hear, there's a ton of "look up and shoot at the guys above you" stuff in the game that the wider frame doesn't accommodate such actions well.11/27/2014 - 5:55pm
Andrew EisenHaving a game run in scope is not necessarily a bad thing but like any aspect ratio, you have to compose your shots correctly.11/27/2014 - 5:55pm
Neo_DrKefkaThe Evil Within was pretty bad and to make it worse the way the screen size made it hard for you to see even on a big screen it really hurt the game. Being Artistic is great but when you focus on art rather than what sells you run the risk of that happen11/27/2014 - 5:33pm
Matthew WilsonI kinda hope this is not true. http://www.nintendolife.com/news/2014/11/nintendo_might_not_be_making_more_gamecube_controller_adapters_at_the_moment11/27/2014 - 1:34pm
Matthew WilsonI saw that. I wish people would stop preording, but sadly that will never happen.11/27/2014 - 1:26pm
