A loose Scraplet wandering around??? Get back to the damn bar where you belong.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (27 July 2017 - 01:16 PM)

Or a scraplet!

Stop making business sense! Your triggering my irrational hatred more!

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (26 July 2017 - 10:49 PM)

We know why places ain't pre-ordering. Walmart wants "SNES Mini in stock!" In there adds to get people into the strores, and GameStop wants to hold systems back till production is over with to scalp them.

When The Revolution Comes, They'll Be The First Against The Wall-Mart

@  D Buster Prime : (26 July 2017 - 06:20 PM)

Wal-Mart? More like Off The Wall-Mart! Amiright?! *cries over canceled preorder*

@  TM2-Megatron : (26 July 2017 - 05:39 PM)

And the Walmart debacle has no doubt pissed off a whole lot of people. What should be fun is turned into a harrowing experience by these kind of pathetic sales tactics

@  TM2-Megatron : (26 July 2017 - 05:38 PM)

Nintendo is really starting to push fans' patience with this SNES classic thing. Why are preorders open someplaces overseas but not in North America?

@  Msol : (26 July 2017 - 05:03 PM)

Well anywho it's out in Canada and I grabbed mine. I couldn't find a thread so just as a warning: watch out when flipping the head out -- I scratched the paint off a bit while doing so. Very little clearance!

@  Msol : (26 July 2017 - 05:01 PM)

Is MPM-3 Bumblebee out in the US yet?

@  Daith : (26 July 2017 - 03:40 PM)

So all of us who thought we had our SNES Classic lined up friday night through Walmart.com just got flipped the bird.

I just hate Facebook.

@  Confuzor : (26 July 2017 - 01:25 AM)

I hate when follow a link to an article from Facebook it has all this extra junk in the address box, so if I want to copy/paste to send to my friends via text, I have to go hunt down the "permalink" so it's a more manageable size

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (24 July 2017 - 08:52 PM)

*sigh* Yup.

@  Foffy : (24 July 2017 - 06:16 PM)

That's the exact opposite of what Facebook wants to happen, though. They're hoping you get sucked in by other content and end up spending more time on Facebook and/or making an account.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (24 July 2017 - 04:02 PM)

I hate that these days when you use a permalink to a Facebook post, the rest of the page's material still shows up below. Like, WTF, I only want the old way of seeing the post and nothing else!

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 01:34 PM)

I call bullshit on that

@  MEDdMI : (24 July 2017 - 01:08 PM)

Read the article. Apparently too many comics sets off the machines due to the glossy pages messing up the X-ray

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 01:03 PM)

what possible justification could they have to ban books containing drawings?

@  MEDdMI : (24 July 2017 - 12:56 PM)

Per the article, United appears to be the only airline, but there might be others.

@  Dracula : (24 July 2017 - 12:48 PM)

@  Evac : (24 July 2017 - 12:46 PM)

No, apparently just United did.

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 10:15 AM)

is it worth the trouble?

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 10:15 AM)

Why does a safety razor give a closer shave than an electric razor?

@  ▲ndrusi : (24 July 2017 - 10:06 AM)

I don't know about Paladin, but I personally am fueled by the rage of fans who have a very specific idea of what a Transformers toyline should be.

@  Paladin : (24 July 2017 - 09:06 AM)

i remain unconvinced. "if it sounds too good to be true, it usually is."

@  General Tekno : (24 July 2017 - 08:58 AM)

Of course in the wake of net-wide outcry against SOPA and PIPA, a website gets shut down and its head personnel arrested.

Look, the more you protest, the harder the pathocrats will clamp down to hold on to power. Just wait patiently and the system will collapse under its own incompetence, then you can build a new one from the ground up.

I'd feel sorry for them if Kim Dotcom hadn't already proved himself to be a massive tool. The guy hacked into people's credit card accounts and sold their credit card info to the highest bidder, for hug's sake.

Yeah, I should be clear: The extent to which I am bothered by this is only as far as it inconveniences me due to the vast amount of media I now do not have access to, and probably won't for some time. I can't even really feel sorry about most of the people who have been/are being arrested in connection. Maybe that graphic designer guy. He was just unfortunate enough to have done work for the wrong outfit. But the people who actually operated the site knew exactly what they were doing and the risks they took in the process.

I kinda feel bad for megaupload, but even before SOPA and PIPA were even conceived, they were breaking the law. I will also admit that at the least the RIAA and MPAA had it coming. Probably the DoJ too, I dunno maybe.

True enough. I need to pay for a VPN service to reliably access streaming content from Hulu, the BBC and others; but I consider that worth it.

In this case, I think everyone had it coming. MegaUpload was infringing left, right and centre; but the MPAA and RIAA are bloated, greedy corporate lobby groups. Their efforts will succeed only in diminishing those industries they represent, and I'm continually shocked that they either don't know it, or know it and keep on pushing for the anti-consumer laws and regulations just for the hell of it (or to maintain face, or some other equally stupid reasoning). I'm not going to shed any tears over what Anonymous did to their sites (nor the DoJ, which I also have little regard for in these cases).

I'll reserve my sympathy for the actual artists whose work was infringed rather than corrupt and/or misguided entities that should all be dissolved.
