hey they're just spreading the Christmas cheer I actually like seeing these.

If there's no news happening, why don't you just make some stuff up and report it?

Re: GameTap Holiday Wishes...

It was a shock today when we found out that EA executives joined in a pile naked reenacting South Park Episode 118 'Goobacks'.  The cause of these actions seem to be them trying to gain more attention as people are still pissed off at them for SecuROM.  Local police quickly apprehended the executives and arrested them for public indecency, and can be imprisoned for up to 2 years.

In other news, Sony and Microsoft have went belly up, and are filing for bankruptcy.  Rumors quickly started that SEGA is going to make a new console now that Nintendo is the only competitor.

Remaining employees at EA decided to try to help their image after their executives typical disgraceful acts, and made Spore and Madden 09 free to everyone online for download at EA's online store.

With the activity at EA, Ubisoft and Activision decided to compete with them by making Prince of Persia and Azada 2 free online, respectively.  Problem is, hardly anyone knows what the hell Azada 2 is, and are wondering what the hell.

Meanwhile, 4 children went to the back of a Walmart in Maine today and broke a mirror to destroy the Walmart store, successfully I might add.  This form of violence was said to be caused by GTA.  Government appointed 'Experts' say they can prove GTA is the cause, though no logical human can even consider the fact from the bullshit foaming out of their mouths.

In Australia, the government allowed an R18 rating, then 5 minutes later abolished it.  Gamers protested, and burned down government buildings.  US 'experts' believe this was caused by GTA as well.

G4TV reports that these 'experts' are fucking morons, and will have more on this story on Monday in the Loop.

A violent killing happened in Germany, US 'experts' once again blame it on GTA.  German police blame it on abusive  and neglectful parents that were not part of their children's lives.  When investigating the parents, they found illegal substances on them, and have been put in jail with their teen sons.

MaskedPixelanteOnce again, the 3DS already HAS a GBA emulator, it just can't run at the same time as the 3DS OS.07/30/2014 - 4:54pm
Matthew Wilsonyou cant street pass in ds mode ether, and if moders can make a gba emulator that runs very well on the psp as I understand it. you are telling me that Nintendo devs are not as good as moders?07/30/2014 - 4:49pm
Zenperformance. Halo 1 and 2 worked great because they actually did custom work on each of them...just like Nintendo does now lol07/30/2014 - 4:08pm
Zenexisting hardware while the GBA has to be emulated completely. Same reason the 360 couldn't run most Original Xbox games correctly, or had issues because they just did "blanket approach" for their emulation which led to game killing bugs or horrible07/30/2014 - 4:07pm
ZenSora/Matthew: It's not just Miiverse, but the whole idea of streetpass and things like that would be affected if the OS is not running. And just because a 3DS game can be downloaded and run does not mean that GBA can as easily. Those 3DS games use the07/30/2014 - 4:06pm
E. Zachary KnightSleaker, How is that different from every other credit card company targeting high school and college students?07/30/2014 - 1:40pm
Sleaker@EZK - I think some people are concerned beacuse it's a predatory technique targetted toward younger people that don't understand on top of offering the worst interest rates of any retailer around.07/30/2014 - 11:33am

NeenekoI would hope not. Though it is not unheard of for store specific cards to be pretty good.07/30/2014 - 8:17am
E. Zachary KnightDoes anyone, or at least any intelligent person, expect a retail branded credit card to be anything close to resembling a "good deal" on interest rates?07/30/2014 - 7:13am

MaskedPixelanteOf course it's improved. At launch, Origin was scanning your entire hard drive, but now it's just scanning your browsing history. If that's not an improvement, I dunno what is!07/29/2014 - 8:59pm

Sora-ChanSo it's just a matter of having better emulation software. If it can be done with a 3DS game, with all the memory and what not it takes up, it can be done with a GBA title through emulation.07/29/2014 - 7:30pm
Sora-ChanOther VC titles for the NES and Gameboy had the same setup where you couldn't access the homescreen without quitting out of the game til a later update when those games were released for the public outside of the founder program.07/29/2014 - 7:28pm
Sora-Chanthe 3DS can, and does, run GBA games, as seen by the founder gifts, which included a number of GBA titles. As for running GBA games and still having access to the home screen, I beleive it's more of the game emulation software needs to be updated.07/29/2014 - 7:27pm
Matthew Wilsonthe 3ds already swaps os's with the original ds. plus I dont think people expect miverse interaction when playing a gba game.07/29/2014 - 6:06pm
MaskedPixelanteBut that's not the issue, the 3DS is perfectly capable of emulating GBA games. The problem is that it doesn't have enough available system resources to run it alongside the 3DS OS, and thus it doesn't have access to stuff like Miiverse and save states.07/29/2014 - 5:45pm
Matthew WilsonI am well aware that it requires more power, but if a GBA emulator could run well on a original psp, than it should work on a 3ds.07/29/2014 - 5:36pm
