Thanks good job;

Btw, I think Atari and Midway will drop out too, but mostly travesti because  these guys have done nothing travesti or little and need to start saving costs. and dizi izle

YES.

Now I don't have to get off my ass for the important shit anymore!

Whats next, ordering pizza from Xbox live?

Wait... I think that sounds like a good idea.

But I think voting should MAKE you get off your ass, and see outside or a second while you go vote. I mean, your picking the president of the United States of America for God's Sake... least you can do is drive down there and punch out a card.

I'm all for freedom of ttnet vitamin speech and allowing rent a car game makers to put whatever they want in games, but there's one thing about this app that has me scratching my head.  Correct me if I'm wrong, but from araç kiralama the previous article araba kiralama on this I gathered that players can use Google maps in-game to find the other (real-life?) dealers in their area.  If this is the case, has travesti anyone considered what's stopping someone from using this app to actually move drugs between hands for reals?

But majority araba kiralama of their outrage araç kiralama stems from what it could DO TO children, not the content itself.  Talk to one of these people and you'll find they don't think any books kiralık araba should be banned from children.  Mention American Psycho and they talk about kiralık araç the redeeming value of using imagination to construct a story.  Reading, no matter what the content, is largely viewed as a consequenceless activity for people of any age.  The reason why I mention American Psycho is because of the content itself.  Gaming never has and likely never will have any scenes where someone has sex with a severed head.  Not gonna happen.  Yet despite this, they'll fight tooth and nail to protect their children from two boys kissing in Bully but whatever they read is harmless... yeah.

The entire arguement is kiralık oto based upon a social normality inflicted by luddites who can't figure out the controls for Halo so it's frightening and terrifying and obviously the cause of youth violence on the rise even though, in reality, it's in decline (which is actually a HUGE suprise given minibüs kiralama the economies status).  In  a perfect world, we would have parents that actually parent.  The idea of sales restrictions on media on oto kiralama any form to accomidate parental unwillingness to get involved with their child's life is the real problem to me.  Here I am, 32 years old, and being held up at a self-scan rent a car needing to show ID before I can buy a $10 M rated game all because Soccer Momthra can't be bothered to look at the crap Billy Genericallystupidson does in his free time.  It's too hard for her, so I have to suffer?

RIAA - Artists are realizing they can sell their own music online and get more profit while charging people less, them attracting customers is stupid like any industry, and people are kind of waiting for a change up in the structure of the music industry, because they know artists are going to sell their music online for cheaper and then they support the artist more.owo...I sure am glad those helpless companies _finally_ have a voice. ,MPAA-we charge more and more for dvds, and sue people, but for some reason people just dont want to buy "epic movie"! whats wrong?RIAA-cd sales are dropping, and Tiffany Jewellery we dont know why! we tried lashing  Tiffany Jewelleryout and adding minor copyright protection to cds, but we still cant get sales up! whats going on?ESA(representing EA and every other company)-we treat our customers like the pirates they are, and add copy protection that cant be extricated from a computer without a full wipe, and still people are buying less games! whats the deal?ESA - Well, meet the gamers, we are people who are hurting in economic downfall like movie and music goes.  Games cost $60 a pop, limit our download options, perform worse with legal copies, and companies are starting to charge money for demos...  Plus treating gamers like pirates, and we dont like crap put on our computers without:


Re: ESA Participating in Copyright Alliance Conference in D.C.

Only we one more on that list and we could have the "Four Horsemen of the Apocolypse."

Re: ESA Participating in Copyright Alliance Conference in D.C.

I sure am glad those helpless companies _finally_ have a voice.

Re: ESA Participating in Copyright Alliance Conference in D.C.

It makes complete sense for them to meet and compare notes. Those relying on dying business models need to stick together or there might be uncontrolled innovation or something...

I just can't wait until companies realize that they are destroying themselves by doing the stupid immoral drm/sueing/intimidation/protection rackets that they do...

Re: ESA Participating in Copyright Alliance Conference in D.C.

Well the CEOs are just ensuring a good golden parachute for them selfs so they can bail out when the company goes belly up..

Copyright infringement is nothing more than civil disobedience to a bad set of laws. Let's renegotiate them.

Re: ESA Participating in Copyright Alliance Conference in D.C.

They did this last year too. Not really big news here.

Re: ESA Participating in Copyright Alliance Conference in D.C.

Just shows how eagerly the ESA are to walk in the other two's failing footsteps. And the recent events with Spore etc show just how thoroughly the ESA are shooting themselves in the foot by doing so.

Re: ESA Participating in Copyright Alliance Conference in D.C.

Sounds more like a note-comparison session to me.

"Extortions illegal you say? Not the way WE have it planned..."

-------------------------------------------------- I LIKE the fence. I get 2 groups to laugh at then.

Re: ESA Participating in Copyright Alliance Conference in D.C.

MPAA-we charge more and more for dvds, and sue people, but for some reason people just dont want to buy "epic movie"! whats wrong?

RIAA-cd sales are dropping, and we dont know why! we tried lashing out and adding minor copyright protection to cds, but we still cant get sales up! whats going on?

ESA(representing EA and every other company)-we treat our customers like the pirates they are, and add copy protection that cant be extricated from a computer without a full wipe, and still people are buying less games! whats the deal?

looks to me like an "old dying business model" meets "overpowered drm model" circlejerk.

Re: ESA Participating in Copyright Alliance Conference in D.C.

MPAA - really bad movies lately, bluray is a rip off cost wise, and some places are changing around movie release dates pissing people off. (Harry Potter, in theaters, Nov, wait no, July 09, wait no June 09, wait no 2012...)

RIAA - Artists are realizing they can sell their own music online and get more profit while charging people less, them attracting customers is stupid like any industry, and people are kind of waiting for a change up in the structure of the music industry, because they know artists are going to sell their music online for cheaper and then they support the artist more.

ESA - Well, meet the gamers, we are people who are hurting in economic downfall like movie and music goes.  Games cost $60 a pop, limit our download options, perform worse with legal copies, and companies are starting to charge money for demos...  Plus treating gamers like pirates, and we dont like crap put on our computers without:

A. A warning
B. The ability to remove it
C. A plausible reason that hasn't already been destroyed

Some companies have decided to buy out other companies and destroy the bought companies branding value, game value, and then the big company decides to buy another company to repeat the process.

Arr, matey, gimme me games, I shall pirate them if you treat me like a pirate, arrr.

Re: ESA Participating in Copyright Alliance Conference in D.C.

So the ESA, RIAA, and the MPAA are meeting under the purview of an alliance?

*Cue Imperial March music*

*That's the main theme for the Empire in Star Wars in case you didn't know*

Oh yeah, and "yaaaar"

Re: ESA Participating in Copyright Alliance Conference in D.C.

Sounds kind of counter integral to have a conference that is only 2 hours long. Sounds more like a meeting to dot the Ts and Is.

Papa MidnightIt's not bad so far, but I am honestly not sure what to make of it (or where it's going for that matter)07/28/2014 - 9:44pm
Matthew Wilsonis it any good?07/28/2014 - 9:36pm
Papa Midnight"Love Child" on HBO -- anyone else watching this?07/28/2014 - 9:27pm
MaskedPixelanteNah, I'm fine purple monkey dishwasher.07/28/2014 - 4:05pm
Sleaker@MP - I hope you didn't suffer a loss of your mental faculties attempting that.07/28/2014 - 3:48pm
MaskedPixelanteOK, so my brief research looking at GameFAQs forums (protip, don't do that if you wish to keep your sanity intact.), the 3DS doesn't have the power to run anything more powerful than the NES/GBC/GG AND run the 3DS system in the background.07/28/2014 - 11:01am
ZenMatthew, the 3DS already has GBA games in the form of the ambassador tittles. And I an just as curious about them not releasing them on there like they did the NES ones. I do like them on the Wii U as well, but seems weird. And where are the N64 games?07/28/2014 - 10:40am
james_fudgeNo. They already cut the price. Unless they release a new version that has a higher price point.07/28/2014 - 10:19am
E. Zachary KnightMatthew, It most likely is. The question is whether Nintendo wants to do it.07/28/2014 - 10:12am
Matthew WilsonI am sure the 3ds im more then powerful enough to emulate a GBA game.07/28/2014 - 9:54am
Sleaker@IanC - while the processor is effectively the same or very similar, the issue is how they setup the peripheral hardware. It would probably require creating some kind of emulation for the 3DS to handle interfacing with the audio and input methods for GBA07/28/2014 - 9:30am
Sleaker@EZK - hmmm, that makes sense. I could have sworn I had played GB/GBC games on it too though (emud of course)07/28/2014 - 9:23am
E. Zachary KnightSleaker, the DS has a built in GBA chipset in the system. That is why it played GBA games. The GBA had a seperate chipset for GB and GBColor games. The DS did not have that GB/GBC chipset and that is why the DS could not play GB and GBC games.07/28/2014 - 7:25am
IanCI dont think Nintendo ever gave reason why GBA games a reason why GBA games aren't on the 3DS eshop. The 3DS uses chips that are backwards compatable with the GBA ob GBA processor, after all.07/28/2014 - 6:46am
Sleakerhmmm that's odd I could play GBA games natively in my original DS.07/28/2014 - 1:39am
Matthew Wilsonbasically "we do not want to put these games on a system more then 10 people own" just joking07/27/2014 - 8:13pm
MaskedPixelanteSomething, something, the 3DS can't properly emulate GBA games and it was a massive struggle to get the ambassador games running properly.07/27/2014 - 8:06pm
Andrew EisenIdeally, you'd be able to play such games on either platform but until that time, I think Nintendo's using the exclusivity in an attempt to further drive Wii U sales.07/27/2014 - 7:21pm
Matthew WilsonI am kind of surprised games like battle network are not out on the 3ds.07/27/2014 - 7:01pm
Andrew EisenWell, Mega Man 1 - 4, X and X2 are already on there and the first Battle Network is due out July 31st.07/27/2014 - 6:16pm
