hey they're just spreading the Christmas cheer I actually like seeing these.

If there's no news happening, why don't you just make some stuff up and report it?

Re: GameTap Holiday Wishes...

It was a shock today when we found out that EA executives joined in a pile naked reenacting South Park Episode 118 'Goobacks'.  The cause of these actions seem to be them trying to gain more attention as people are still pissed off at them for SecuROM.  Local police quickly apprehended the executives and arrested them for public indecency, and can be imprisoned for up to 2 years.

In other news, Sony and Microsoft have went belly up, and are filing for bankruptcy.  Rumors quickly started that SEGA is going to make a new console now that Nintendo is the only competitor.

Remaining employees at EA decided to try to help their image after their executives typical disgraceful acts, and made Spore and Madden 09 free to everyone online for download at EA's online store.

With the activity at EA, Ubisoft and Activision decided to compete with them by making Prince of Persia and Azada 2 free online, respectively.  Problem is, hardly anyone knows what the hell Azada 2 is, and are wondering what the hell.

Meanwhile, 4 children went to the back of a Walmart in Maine today and broke a mirror to destroy the Walmart store, successfully I might add.  This form of violence was said to be caused by GTA.  Government appointed 'Experts' say they can prove GTA is the cause, though no logical human can even consider the fact from the bullshit foaming out of their mouths.

In Australia, the government allowed an R18 rating, then 5 minutes later abolished it.  Gamers protested, and burned down government buildings.  US 'experts' believe this was caused by GTA as well.

G4TV reports that these 'experts' are fucking morons, and will have more on this story on Monday in the Loop.

A violent killing happened in Germany, US 'experts' once again blame it on GTA.  German police blame it on abusive  and neglectful parents that were not part of their children's lives.  When investigating the parents, they found illegal substances on them, and have been put in jail with their teen sons.

Goth_Skunk@WonderKarp: Given Rosario's outspoken criticisms of the conduct of the IGDA, I would not be one bit surprised if he's being strong-armed into silence in closed-door meetings. He's not towing the party line, after all.01/30/2015 - 11:38pm
MechaTama31EZK: Thank you! (And I was able to see that you did it, only because you did it. How appropriate! :)01/30/2015 - 11:37pm
Matthew Wilson@Monte Nintendo is a Japanese company though. consoles are dead in japan. ps sony is a international company, so they do not much care about Japanese sales much.01/30/2015 - 10:11pm
MonteOnly one generation ago nintnedo had the best selling console. They know their games are still popular and can move their hardware. They just need to focus on better gaming hardware and advertising (their youtube policy not helping)01/30/2015 - 9:58pm
MonteI'd expect Nintendo to keep making consoles, much like the gamecube i doubt nintendo will see the Wii U as a sign of the end for consoles. There are multiple reason why the Wii U failed a big one being marketting.01/30/2015 - 9:55pm
Wonderkarpwhen asked on Twitter, the Chairman said He couldnt comment at this time https://twitter.com/siloraptor/status/561284497275367424. still looking for facts01/30/2015 - 9:41pm
Wonderkarphttp://pressfarttocontinue.com/2015/01/30/igda-puerto-rico-closed/ this is what I have so far01/30/2015 - 9:27pm
Wonderkarpso allegedly, IGDA has closed their Puerto Rico branch. This comes after the Chairman of the Puerto Rico branch was blocklisted by Randi Harper. I'm trying to dig up more info on it. all I have is a link with some info, but its not cited.01/30/2015 - 9:27pm
Andrew EisenSo, kinda like the Wii U just with a GamePad that's portable?01/30/2015 - 9:13pm
Matthew Wilson@AE I hope they do a Ipad/iphone thing. make a home console/handheld where games are playable on both. that is what I would want from them.01/30/2015 - 9:00pm
Andrew EisenThat would be a shame but as long as I can play comfortably on my TV I'll probably be fine with whatever the future brings.01/30/2015 - 8:56pm
Matthew Wilson@AE I would get used to it. I do not think nintendo is going to do another home console , but I suspect a hybrid one. 1. they are doing worse than the gamecube. 2. the home console market is dead in japan. even the ps4 isnt selling there.01/30/2015 - 8:54pm
Andrew EisenAside from that (and the aiming isn't too smooth but it's turn based so it's not a big deal (maybe better with Circle Pad Pro or New 3DS?)) my only other quibble is I'd much prefer playing it on a console. But I say that about nearly every handheld game.01/30/2015 - 8:39pm
Andrew EisenFrom what I've seen of Valkyria Chronicles, this is significantly slower. Mechanically, it's fine and plays into the game well. It just takes too long.01/30/2015 - 8:37pm
Matthew Wilsonyup like VC it moves every enemy each turn one by one.01/30/2015 - 8:33pm
Andrew EisenI played most of the Codename Steam demo. Pretty neat so far but the enemy turn (it's turn based) takes way too long.01/30/2015 - 8:31pm
Goth_SkunkJust finished the first episode of Life is Strange. The writing is hit-or-miss, the lip-syncing is awful (but I can't fault an indie dev for that), but the chronokinesis mechanic is dynamite. Love the concept. Can't wait to play more.01/30/2015 - 8:23pm
Andrew EisenNintendo invites disaster!01/30/2015 - 7:34pm

TechnogeekApparently, this was the first SSB tournament to actually be sponsored by Nintendo; the upcoming Wii U title Splatoon was even going to be demoed there.01/30/2015 - 7:29pm
