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....

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.

Great news. Nintendo's saving the videogame from contracting into a ghettoised nerd hobby, like comic books and other marginalised forms of entertainment.

On G4 (go ahead and laugh) after the conference Reggie said that the Mario and Zelda teams are hard at work.

It shouldn't be a surprise, (I thought they already said they're working on a Wii Zelda) but it was disappointing not seeing anything.

It takes several years for them to make new Mario and Zelda games. I'll be surprised if we see a second true Mario game on Wii, and a Wii Zelda might not even have any showable development on it done for another year or two. Look at the last two Zelda games; WW was released near the start of the GC's life and TP at the end, and held over so a port could use as a Launch title for Wii, which I think was a good move as it gave the Wii its first killer App. So I'm not surprised we haven't heard anything about the next games in those series, even if they do have something planned.

I haven't seen the Sony one yet, but that's two disappointing conferences... Between Nintendo just patting themselves on the back and not really showing much of anything and Microsoft MOSTLY saying 'hey, we can do casual too'. At least the Xbox one ended with a bang(one shot right across Sony's bow). I'm beginning to think Nintendo just doesn't care to put any effort in their E3 presentations anymore(heck, at the rate that studios/publishers are pulling out of the ESA, I wouldn't be surprised if there ISN'T an E3 next year)

It's not that Nintendo doesn't care to put any effort into their E3 presentations. That was a high-end, well-practiced, and thoroughly-calculated presentation that accomplished exactly what Nintendo wanted it to.

Unfortunately for us, Nintendo wanted more "Wii is casual and accessible and fun for everyone" stories from the parts of the mainstream media that only ever pay attention to video games during E3. It's dull as hell to any hardcore gamers, but Nintendo figures that we'll go apejive over a new Zelda or Mario game whenever they show it to us, while USA Today isn't going to write an article to hype up Wii Music any time other than E3 or the week that the game is released.

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

Actually im glad they are not doing another metroid game. The series has been over used and is like mainsteam now. Not good. And I dont think I want to see another 1st person shooter/adventure game. I want 3rd person damn it!! but as a fanboy of the Big N. I really wasnt all that impressed with this conference. Other then GTA for the DS of course!

I think I'd like another 1st person game because the control system is screaming out for it, it would work so well. However my problem is we've not had many great ones, Too many world war 2 shooters (and most of them were crap), Red Steel (which was ok) and Metroid (which was awesome), there should be some more because it works so well.

to 7:30PM PST.

I don't know what all this entails, but I do know that RawMeatCowboy from
GoNintendo is attending and it should be interesting. I don't believe this is
the Nintendo Development meeting (where we got the first confirmation on
Smash Brows Brawl 2 years ago) but probably just an US TOO from smaller
developers working on the Wii and DS...
