I don't, but my brother does. Sucks how I can't get M rated games without an I.D. Blasphemy!
As I saw the creature, I was as white as an egg. I was so scared I might crack from fear. As the humanoid began to lunge after me, I was walking on egg shells from how scared I was. It grabbed me, took me to its station, and cracked me open. The last thing I saw were my yellow insides cooked on a pan. Human nature is as evil as a rotten egg.

Well, I guess I'm gonna get the game tomorrow. Idk why, but I'm kind sad that I didn't get the game on the day it got released. Rather than "I got it on the day it came out!", it's "I got it the day after." I wanted to get it today...
Does that make me weird or... somethin'?

Oh Squeenix throwing your Euro developers under the bus to cover for FF13 taking 3 years to move 7 million copies and the fact that they had to completely redo FF14.

Square and Capcom, two of my biggest loves since I was a kid, are seriously letting me down as of late.

And Square doesn't just do video games. Seriously, they do a lot. Movies, anime, commercials, and a lot of other mediums for raking in cash. I don't know what they're crying about. As for Wada resigning, I heard a long time ago he was thinking of doing it already. About a year or two ago I believe. It's really sad how they believe selling that many copies in the time they hope for is reasonable.

I've finished Dead Space 3, and I'm happy to say that while it's been wounded by the idiots at EA, it's pretty tough to kill.

I enjoyed the game. Especially the weapon crafting, christ is it extensive.

Wounded? I heard    that the ending was kinda lame, but that's it.    A friend of mine just got a copy used a couple days ago. Will probably hear more about it tomorrow from him.

I think I'm not understanding something right here. From reading the article it seems they threw the NA publishers under the bus for not selling as much as the EU markets.
The company particularly points its finger at the North American market, claiming an "ineffective" sales force compared to Europe, where games performed two-thirds better.

I hate Konami for the most part.

They have fallen from the glory that they once had.

Same thing with EA.

In terms of game mechanics they aren't terrible. But they so suck hard at story writing. A 14 year old kid's fanfiction has more grit and originality in it than their shit.

I mean, your example of Dragon's Dogma is fine. So, you start up in a village that gets burned down by a dragon and you set out on a quest to kill it for whatever reason... But enough about Skyrim, we were talking about Dragon's Dogma...

They have fallen from the glory that they once had.

Isn't it the same with so many others? Blizzard used to be awesome. Now it's meh. Activision was once quite good, now... And then Ubisoft, back from before they started trying to eliminate piracy. I mean, they did give us some legendary titles in the past. All of them have fallen victim to fucking their customers over on their products and service to cut costs and remain competitive on the big market by milking their customers rather than providing quality for money.

It's quite sad, and it's the reason why I mostly play indie games.

Don't get me wrong, I can ignore a company to see the studio within.

I understand that greedy intentions can't truly tarnish a good product.

Learning about the time period where Portugal was relevant on the world stage, wooo!
"Suddenly Frodo noticed that a strange-looking weather-beaten man, sitting in the shadows near the wall, was also listening intently to the hobbit-talk. He had a tall tankard in front of him, and was smoking a long-stemmed pipe curiously carved. His legs were stretched out before him, showing high boots of supple leather that fitted him well, but had seen much wear and were now caked with mud. A travel-stained cloak of heavy dark-green cloth was drawn close about him, and in spite of the heat of the room he wore a hood that overshadowed his face; but the gleam of his eyes could be seen as he watched the hobbits."

Ya, in my Renaissance class right now we're learning about you guys' trading/exploration in the 15th century.

Most serious thing around here lately is the fact that Popovic is no longer allowed inside the house, 'cause my grandma insists on feeding her things that can actually kill her.

Is Silver Samurai in this?

Yup, Silver Samurai's in the movie.

It grabbed me, took me to its station, and cracked me open. The last thing I saw were my yellow insides cooked on a pan. Human nature is as evil as a rotten egg.

But this one is less known I believe.

What. The. Fuck.

Okay, the 1st one was creepy as hell. Right when I say the heart with glitter, I just said "Ah crap..."
The 2nd one was... interesting. Not creepy, but a simple look at life from a happy-go-lucky person (who loves counting).
