I take objection to the idea that public health is "politics" just because some politicians don't listen to the experts.

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:59 AM)

I was only replying to the general sentiment of the last three posts before mine.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (04 March 2021 - 10:58 AM)

The person you replied to specifically gave the example of "limiting the amount of people in a facility".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (04 March 2021 - 10:58 AM)

This wasn't about "lock[ing] everyone in the country down".

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:57 AM)

All I'm saying is there are lockdown and anti-lockdown people and hashing it out in the shoutbox on a toy forum is dumb.

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:56 AM)

You don't have to lock everyone in the country down to mitigate risks in one population.

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:56 AM)

Of course older people have it worse, but America is one of those countries where people ship their old people to homes far away from the action anyways.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (04 March 2021 - 10:55 AM)

What ar you even trying to say, anyway? That we shouldn't complain about others increasing the danger more than necessary?

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:55 AM)

Frankly, there's a lot to say on this issue that can't be encompassed on the shoutbox and I really really don't want to have to deal with politics every single time I check the forums.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (04 March 2021 - 10:54 AM)

To claim that this is about the people in the 20-40 range is also disingenuous.

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:53 AM)

Essential workers and such are pretty fit on average which is an extra boon for them.

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:51 AM)

It's not really a personal choice issue, it's a risk versus well, anything you want to do issue. Literally leaving the house results in potential exposure, mask or no. Overall, most of us who hang out here are 20-40, and our survival rate is comparable with some pretty out there statistics.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (04 March 2021 - 10:39 AM)

Anybody who has to go out because of work or groceries or whatever can't just choose to avoid any potential disease-spreaders, for one thing.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (04 March 2021 - 10:38 AM)

Kind of disingenuous to frame this as just a personal choice issue.

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:22 AM)

This whole "I can't handle people not me having the choice to not put on masks" thing's a bit much.

@  -LittleAutob... : (04 March 2021 - 09:14 AM)

Hey, Florida is one of the most infected states, and we won't even shut down. We may use masks, but restaurants, clubs, you name it, those are still wide open. Also, what's limiting the amount of people in a facility again? :p

No kidding, but right now: unless it's physically on the shelf in front of you: there's no clear idea when it'll be available. And that goes for just about everything.

@  TM2-Megatron : (03 March 2021 - 04:18 PM)

I've heard new appliances are hard to get, for some reason

@  wonko the sane? : (03 March 2021 - 04:13 PM)

@  NotVeryKnightly : (28 February 2021 - 07:22 AM)

Didn't that come right after the 2016 clown panic? No way to make clowns not disturbing at the time, surely.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (28 February 2021 - 04:26 AM)

The clown guise is supposed to lure kids in, it's no good if it looks sus in one glance.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (28 February 2021 - 04:15 AM)

The new one tries too hard to be unsettling from the start. Curry's look is just a plain old clown, until he very much is not.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (28 February 2021 - 04:14 AM)

And Curry has a far more disturbing look at times than the newbie.

@  Sabrblade : (28 February 2021 - 02:22 AM)

And the original was a showcase of Tim Curry's delightfulness as an actor. 'Nuff said.

@  unluckiness : (27 February 2021 - 10:19 PM)

first one was a decent horror flick but the second was a mess plotwise and even the scares were worse

@  repowers : (24 February 2021 - 05:33 PM)

If everyone would just have the exact same opinions as me then we wouldn't have this problem

@  Kalidor : (24 February 2021 - 01:49 PM)

It just depends on what it is. It is preferable to take it to P&R though. But sometimes current news as it's happening is less restrictive.

At tonight's E3 2008 Nintendo Developer Roundtable, Shigeru Miyamoto quickly
and casually confirmed that a new Pikmin title is under development. His words?
"We're making Pikmin." The long version of that answer, when asked if the team
was planning on revisiting that particular franchise was far more verbose.

"We continue investigating all types of games," Miyamoto responded. "When it's
time to announce such a title, I'll announce it." Then he did. "We're making Pikmin."

Again, that's "We're making Pikmin."
Yep.

So my glad my Wii was a gift, I would be pissed had I paid money for it. talk about a waste of time, Nintendo's E3 this year was a joke.

Also the new Wii sensor bar does nothing for the old games. LOL.

Animal Crossing: City Folk does have the same furniture as the Gamecube and DS games, but those are only the defaults. You can buy brand new furniture and clothes in the city.
Design your own clothes.
Move your characters and items from the DS game to the Wii version. Of take your Wii Animal Crossing character, put it on the DS, take it to your friends house to upload it there if you lack connection to WiiConnect.
Downloadable content, brand new stuff instead of just hidden on the disc.

Wii Speak that comes with City Folk (and games like The Condiut and the next Tony Hawk will use) does actualy a rather good job. Sound quality is good and better then a speaker phone. Can pick up multiple voices at the same time for group conversations, no drop out. Nintendo did good on WiiSpeak.


This comes from MCaster of Rangerboard who is currently at the confrence.

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.

Actually im glad they are not doing another metroid game. The series has been over used and is like mainsteam now. Not good.

1UP: With your new focus on user-friendly controls and playability, will this approach play into, for example, future iterations of Mario and Zelda? Will this affect game design in any way?

SM: Frankly, some of the so-called "franchise games" are quite difficult for nongamers to play, so making accessible games for these players is key. With Zelda, we have to consider how to make it accessible for new gamers to pick up and play and enjoy just as hardcore gamers have. For example, we've got the Touch Generations series. Now, we're not necessarily going to make our "franchise" games in that style, but we'll take what we know and have learned -- the philosophy behind those games -- and incorporate it into franchise games. That's a philosophy that's very strong at Nintendo.

You do realize that sales numbers for the Zelda franchise have been
steadily declining in both the US and Japan? They've gotta do some-
thing to change it up...

That mad world trailer does look amazing.
So 2 things, out of like 12 or so I want for other systems, not a good ratio for me honestly.

And how much more can you simplify their main franchises anyway? The only times they got hard is when you tried doing everything, Galaxy is easy if you simply on concentrate on beating the game, TP is almost insulting in how simple it is and Metroid on the easiest difficulty is a joke, that's pretty damn accessible.

Nintendo might as just send a box of jive to long time supporters cause that's what they're doing, they took the group that kept them afloat during bad times and just discarded them and of course people still apologize for what they do, CAUSE NINTENDO CAN DO NO WRONG. Its ridiculous.

My fave thing about this is the 1.1 sensor bar, its like a "yea we admit it, the motion control is imprecise, now pay 50 bucks to fix it bitch"

I don't care if it comes with Wii sports, that jive better come with 2 of those things because chances are that enhanced motion control is gonna be put into most of their games thus forcing you to buy the damn add-ons.

Nintendo looks at E3 much differently than they other gaming giants. In its
current incarnation the only thing that E3 is good for, during this time of the
year, is reinforcing their open gaming strategy and introducing products for
the mainstream. It's not the time of year when the most games are sold, and
Nintendo usually holds their own media conferences later on in the year to
really let the press at their closer held secrets.

Was Nintendo's presser the lest interesting for the hardcore gamer? Yeah.
But my wife watched all three keynotes with me and rated them MS, then
Nintendo and then Sony. The 2+ Hour Sony Keynote was boring and had very
little gameplay from upcoming titles. Microsoft really bridged the hardcore-
expanded audience gap and came away looking like Kings.
Yep.
