Ha! Just like our candidates will crash our country, so to does spore crash our computers!

They'll get it right 5 times! But after that you'll have to call and beg them to not screw us over!

Re: Free Stuff: Candidates Made into Spore Characters

...because we need another reason to never touch Spore...

... Oh God.. Does anyone else sense the oncoming McCain/Palin SPORN?

My life will officially be over...

Re: Free Stuff: Candidates Made into Spore Characters

Something's wrong with Sarah Palin. Where's her aura of pure, dark evilness from which no good can escape?

I say, bring on the candidates in Sackboy form for LBP.

*Jack Thompson loves it when people argue with him. He whacks off to it! DON'T FEED THE TROLL!*

 Is McCain storing nuts?

Just say EA because Maxis no longer exist, only Will Wright.

Andrew EisenThanks to those who joined us for the live recording of the podcast. I'm working on ironing out the tech issues so next week's show should be even better! If you missed it, we'll have a recording on YouTube later. Possibly even an audio-only version.07/13/2014 - 12:38am
Matthew WilsonI hope after this genaration everything is backwards compatible becouse everything is now x86 architecture. with the exception of Nintendo of course .07/12/2014 - 10:54pm
Andrew EisenWhy do you hope we didn't buy any? They're still available on the Wii VC, which is accessible from the Wii U.07/12/2014 - 10:48pm
MaskedPixelantehttp://www.joystiq.com/2014/07/12/segas-plans-for-wii-u-virtual-console-are-non-existent/ Hope you didn't buy any Sega games off the original VC, since Sega has no plans on bringing them to the Wii U Virtual Console.07/12/2014 - 5:39pm
MechaTama31I think there are a significant number of jobs people will do for food that they will not do for an ipad.07/12/2014 - 8:39am
Infophilelabour (primarily among mothers and teens) and some show increased labour. Maybe it's a cultural thing in play that results in different outcomes in different societies.07/12/2014 - 6:53am
InfophileYou also need to take into account just how crappy it would be to only have the basics to live. But with competing forces at play like this, it's impossible to argue to an answer. We have to look to tests of it, and results are mixed. Some show decreased07/12/2014 - 6:51am
MechaTama31to be done, and some people really need jobs.07/11/2014 - 5:41pm
MechaTama31Info, I think you don't really understand just how crappy a lot of the jobs are that provide the "basics" that you assume will just continue to be produced under such a system. There's very little pride or prestige to be had from such jobs, but they need07/11/2014 - 5:40pm
Andrew EisenMaskedPixelante - That's probably because it's now available on the Wii U eShop for $8.07/11/2014 - 5:18pm
InfophileThat's not how human psychology works. It's all about "Keeping up with the Joneses." When everyone around you has a new fancy smartphone and is talking about that cool HBO series, do you want to be the one left out?07/11/2014 - 4:05pm
Matthew WilsonThe issue is most people would settle for the basics and not work. That is why we would need very heavy automation to make a system like that work. Almost all labor intensive tasks would have to be done by robot.07/11/2014 - 2:32pm
InfophileOf course, that's a gross oversimplification. The idea, have a basic safety net that pays for what's needed to live. If people can find a job and are willing to work, they get more money which can be spent on comfort and perks.07/11/2014 - 11:33am
InfophileIt's quite possible to get an economy to work with a basic minimum standard of living. You just need perks for the people who do work. Everyone gets food and a home. Everyone who works also gets an iPhone.07/11/2014 - 11:32am

SleakerI didn't gather the same conclusion.. Seems like they are focusing on devices & services still, just not calling it 'devices and services'07/11/2014 - 8:57am

MechaTama31declared that everybody should have them. Somebody still has to produce them.07/11/2014 - 7:44am
MechaTama31I do mean the developers/governmet. And money is not the only thing of value. I am including the food, housing, etc that everybody is supposed to get for free under this system. In the real world, those things don't exist merely because an authority has07/11/2014 - 7:43am
InfophileAs automation gets better and better, the number of jobs absolutely required keeps diminishing. How many people these days do you think are actually needed to keep everyone alive? Most people just make our lives more convenient and entertaining.07/11/2014 - 4:43am
