Scarecrow plays the LONG game fighting Batman.

@  Steevy Maximus : (26 January 2021 - 09:17 PM)

I had to "delete" the download, and now the video is working correctly (as a streaming view).

@  Steevy Maximus : (26 January 2021 - 09:16 PM)

Strangest error? I downloaded the rental for Batman: Soul of the Dragon, and when I went to play it, it started an episode of Scarecrow And Mrs King. That show IS apparently part of my library (probably snagged it when Apple offered premiere episode for free), but I don't recall ever claiming it....

@  Patch : (26 January 2021 - 06:44 PM)

Question to all the native English speakers: Those of you familiar with Australian singer Sia - how hard are her vocals for you to understand?

death comes for us all. what difference does it make how?

@  ▲ndrusi : (25 January 2021 - 06:26 PM)

It's only murder and that is all, why should I feel the way I do...

@  Rufus : (25 January 2021 - 01:37 PM)

It's only murder if it comes from the Murder region of France, otherwise it's just suspiciously deceased.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 January 2021 - 09:17 AM)

It's only murder if they find the body, otherwise it's just a missing persons case.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (23 January 2021 - 02:51 PM)

There was a five season anime with wearing relics as the premise.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (23 January 2021 - 01:16 PM)

You don't wear relics, you enshrine them.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 06:23 PM)

Wrong holey... and probably the wrong way to dress too.

@  Rycochet : (22 January 2021 - 06:09 PM)

If your underwear is old and holy, it is considered a relic and should be protected with your life.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 02:04 PM)

That's the argument we keep making: but I still need to wait till feb 8th minimum to replace my holey underwear.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:57 PM)

Personally I'm glad Ontario wasn't so misguided as to try to define what is or isn't "essential" for big box stores like Walmart to sell. If someone is stuck at home literally for weeks and unable to go out, who's to say a new TV or game console isn't essential (if only for one's sanity) if theirs breaks down?

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:55 PM)

Although fortunately, Ontario's daily cases and positivity rate has been on a steady decline for the past week or so; if they can get the vaccinations back on track, there is some hope.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:53 PM)

And as far as Canada's lockdowns go, I'm guessing none of them will end until late March, or perhaps the beginning of April. What small businesses that might be left at that point will be allowed to open for their going out of business sales.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:52 PM)

Unfortunately the CEO of Target Canada made more money by running the company into the ground than he ever would have had he made it a success, so there was zero incentive to succeed.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:51 PM)

Target made some serious mistakes when they came into Canada. They focused on opening like 150+ stores within a 2 year timeframe and had no online infrastructure whatsoever; their website literally only contained legal blurbs and a store locator... lacking even the ability to see what they sold in stores, or if it was in stock and, if so, where. They should have started with 1/3 the number of stores with a full online experience including online shopping and inventory checking

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 12:35 PM)

See; quebec is under a new lockdown, have been since the 26th. It's supposed to end the 8th of february, but probably won't. Stores are only supposed to sell necessities (in deference to the stores which are closed.), but the quebec government made no effort define what counts as a "necessity", only punished them for getting it wrong. So I can buy all the candy I want, but not underwear, boots, winterwear, small appliances. Hell, my brother had to explain why he wanted a FUSE when he needed to fix his stove shortly before new years.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 12:31 PM)

Targets don't exist in canada anymore. They lasted like 3 years before abandoning the market. But even if they WERE still here: they would be under the same poorly defined restrictions as walmart.

@  -LittleAutob... : (22 January 2021 - 12:10 PM)

Target's better-

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 07:51 AM)

HA! my walmarts can't even sell underwear. There's no clearances going on up here.

@  Steevy Maximus : (21 January 2021 - 11:31 PM)

Check your Walmarts: Post-Christmas clearances are going on and I snagged Need For Speed Hot Pursuit Remastered for Switch for only $5 (YMMV)

Until the third civil war. Or yellowstone, whatever's good.

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 January 2021 - 08:52 AM)

You could leave your friends behind.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (18 January 2021 - 09:43 PM)

You could if you really wanted to.

@  -LittleAutob... : (18 January 2021 - 01:35 PM)

@  -LittleAutob... : (18 January 2021 - 01:35 PM)

......... all wounds heal through God. *walks off*

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 January 2021 - 01:01 PM)

Let me know when the WEAPONs wake up.

@  tigerhawk : (18 January 2021 - 05:18 AM)

Or is the wound the Earth healing.

@  unluckiness : (18 January 2021 - 03:32 AM)

Healing is just destroying the wound

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 January 2021 - 06:08 PM)

But eventually destroys everything.

@  tigerhawk : (17 January 2021 - 05:03 PM)

Heals many wounds

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 January 2021 - 02:03 PM)


@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2021 - 07:53 AM)

I dunno, maybe. I'm not clairvoyant either...

Wii Sports Resort: Disc Dog (throw a frisbee for a dog to catch), a Jet Ski game, and a swordfighting/log-chopping game.

They're testing using the DS as a travel guide--when your plane lands, you get info on where to get your luggage, where to find a restaurant, etc.

Delta's DS Travel Stations do this right now...

My opinion? Dog Poop.

Another E3 from Nintendo catering to the Mass Media and "Expanded Audience",
and they're doing this with a music game that sounds horrible. No. No thanks.

Show me something more interesting at the Developer Roundtable or I go crazy.

Currently the only thing I use my Wii for is Wii Fit. Though I've been meaning to finish Galaxy and Twilight Princess and give RE4 another run with the wii mote. All on the back burner with GTAIV and Bioshock...

Nintendo said they were no longer competing, and getting Mario 128, Zelda and Metroid off their back was their priority. It's now up to third party developers to satisfy the hardcore gamers with a Wii, other then that I would consider it filler.

Your scientists have yet to discover how neural networks create self-consciousness, let alone how the human brain processes two-dimensional retinal images into the three-dimensional phenomenon known as perception. Yet you somehow brazenly declare that seeing is believing!

Does anyone see City-Swimmer? Is he gliding beneath the silver water? Is he creeping 'round a corner, hugging a wall, silent as a shadow in the dark?

So nothing interesting then.

I wonder if buying a Wii was a mistake, seems the best titles are already out and well, this was just boring and uninteresting, there was nothing there I am interested in.

Guess Nintendo is going into overdrive with their new gamer demographic.

It's now up to third party developers to satisfy the hardcore gamers

This will never happen, most 3rd party companies seem perfectly content to dole out shovelware.

It doesn't help that the shovelware sells and the hardcore content as it where sells poorly(or at least poorly compared to the shovelware).

Being a Nintendo fanboy, this line of announcements is just subpar. I'm all for WiiSports Resort, it looks fun and could be a good sequel to the first. But lack of Mario, Link, and Samus in any form is kinda got me thinking it's gonna be a 360 year next year.

Nintendo has some pages up for the new games. http://e3.nintendo.com/

I have to say... I'm really disappointed with Animal Crossing Wii so far. Watching that video, I don't see one significant new feature that wasn't in the DS game. Sure, you can use your Mii, but that doesn't affect gameplay... and it looks like the same shops are just restructured into one "mall" instead of spread throughout the town. Other than that... it's a freakin' port.

The text says that we'll see the return of "proper" holidays, including Halloween and Bunny Day, which is an improvement over the DS version, but the same as the GCN version. You could already visit other people's towns in the DS game. They mention the same items to collect as previous games: bugs, fish, fossils. Every animal and every piece of furniture in the video comes from a previous game. So... really, what IS new here? It honestly took them three years to smooth out the DS graphics and add voice chat and Miis?

Not so much novelty dude, as lack of new stuff. A new Zelda game actually developed for the wii and not a GC port would be immense, same with metroid.

Hell any new stuff would be good, not just resting on your laurels.
