    Please Understand, Nintendo is the Bad Guy

    You read that a lot in this kind of discussions but this is simply not true. They have copyright on art assets, music, code, voice acting, script ... So while the hack may not simply be the game it still uses art assets and soundtrack and Nintendo can easily claim copyright for those and...

    Nintendo Wants Its Cut

    I can only recommend to get an Something Awful account and follow the LP's there. I don't know how and when a hobby of showing videogames that you like turned into a business but the whole entitlement of wanting to get get paid for anothers copyrighted material is simply baffling. Everyone acts...

    German Consumer Group Sues Valve

    You can't choose the jurisdiction in a contract if one party is a consumer (§32 ZPO) and according to a decision from the european court of justice (C-190/11) it is irrelevant where the company is based as long as it aimed for doing business in another country.

    Mass Effect 3 Review

    It's funny to see you accuse Susan of lying and yet do it in your next post. Lair of the Shadow Broker was referenced several times including the Bossfight. It was almost impossible to miss. And there is even a full mission for the rachni Oo

    Poll: Paying for dates

    See, that bothers me with that attitude. Basically your action doesn't say "i pay for her because i'm feeling nice" but "i pay for her so she better puts out" Am I the only one who thinks that's pretty insulting? Also i can't understand the attitude "you asked her/him out, you pay" Most...

    Poll: Reality and Movies - How Many People Can Swim?

    To be fair, it is one thing to swim in a pool without any current and in your swimwear and a whole other thing to swim in full clothing in the ocean or a fast flowing river. But yeah, swimming lessons are pretty much part of your PE curriculum where i live.
