President Elect Obama...

I think the games were put aside for a bit.  Now that this is done it is time to pick up the controler and do a victory lap or two.

Good luck PE Obama, you have taken on a game too large for this humble college student.

It seems to me that the reason they talk about Super Mario Brothers is the Joe the Plumber reference, and that they know exactly what they're talking about.

Re: Stewart & Colbert: Don't Play Super Mario Bros. - Vote!

Ok. So who should I vote for? People keep telling me to vote, but never who to vote for.

I'm sure Colbert tells you what to think.

They were poking fun at the people who are unware that there's games other than super mario, i think.

That was a good point, though. A lot of people dont put their vote where there mouth is, and I've always personally felt that if you cant get your butt out once every four years, then you shouldn't have the right to complain about what's going on. But in the end, I'm glad that we have the choice to be stupid, even if it's annoying.

Re: Stewart & Colbert: Don't Play Super Mario Bros. - Vote!

lol

 

Really funny.

 

I know that many of us Gamers have faced really serious times but I know that these guys are only joking.

 

I did not care that they went with the old "Super Mario Brothers" as this might be the only Videogame they know, they could have mentioned any other game like Sonic, Tomb Raider, Halo and Grand Theft Auto (on second thought, it is better if they didn't mention GTA because they might have mentioned about shooting Police for 'so called' bonus points.)

 

It is funny, yeah, but in the age where the Nintendo Wii and the Nintendo DS is making almost every parent play Videogames with their younger offspring they could at least have said.

 

"Instead of walking on your Wii Fit, go outside and walk to your ballot box and VOTE NOW!!!!"

 

But I guess saying Don't Play Super Mario Brothers I guess they are talking to the early Videogame Generation steriotype.

 

And I know I can laugh at that.

Don't have a wii fit (don't I sound Irish), Don't have a wii.  But, Warren and I did walk to the polls (about a mile round trip--at least it felt like it,) in the rain and we both voted for Obama.  I think McCain took my state, but only by 12,000 votes.

 

Insanity has its toll. Please have exact change.

Enter key is your friend, but there is such a thing as calling a friend for help too much. The GP commenting system automatically creates an extra blank line when you press enter, you don't need to hit it twice. (That messes me up too.) You also don't need to hit it after every sentence.

Sheesh, I thought I finally had my inner amateur editor locked away but I guess he found another way to wriggle out.

Re: Stewart & Colbert: Don't Play Super Mario Bros. - Vote!

Voting done.  According to Kotaku, Mario voted to oppose the inferior (and possibly fake) plumber this election, so the choice was obvious.

SleakerBut where have all the Ethics gone?08/21/2014 - 9:08am
Sleaker@EZK - one of the bigger things is that since Mojang has owned Bukkit for 2 years now, people contributing to the project have basically been doing work for them pro-bono. On top of never formalizing support. They hid the fact probably to prevent support08/21/2014 - 9:07am
SleakerIf you've played on a server with mods/plugins, you've almost for sure played on a Bukkit-based server.08/21/2014 - 8:56am

SleakerTo the point that it seems they have completely lost what it means to be for-community, and having transparency. Along with dumping restrictive EULA's onto people.08/21/2014 - 8:53am

SleakerMinecraft community exploded again today. Apparently Mojang owns all of Bukkit, and never put out a statement saying as such 2 years ago when they acquired them. I have to say, their transition from indie has been rough.08/21/2014 - 8:52am
