MORE ECA SCOTUS Rally Photos

November 2, 2010 -

Here are five more photos from the real "Rally to Restore Sanity," taking place outside the Supreme Court – no offense to Jon Stewart intended. Thanks to everyone that took time out of their busy schedules to support free speech, video games, and gamers in America (thanks to our own Matthew Olschan for sending these in).

Holy crap, even Mario himself showed up!

Re: MORE ECA SCOTUS Rally Photos

That's me and my fiancee in the first picture there.  Some of the other people who were in the crowd were some British students who happened to be on a tour and wanted to join in.  They were really cool.  We can always count on our friends across the pond to lend us a hand.

Incidentally, I spotted one of them wearing an Iron Maiden T-shirt.  Reflexively I threw up the horns and yelled, "Yeah!  Maiden!"

Enough pictures, where is the summary? I want meat. Give me meat.

Best I've seen so far is in the WSJ:

"Some of the Grimm's Fairy Tales are quite grim," Justice Scalia told an attorney for California. "Are they OK? Are you going to ban them, too?"

"What about films? What about comic books?" asked Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. "Why are videogames special?"

---

BOOM.

I'm feeling pretty good about this one.

Right now, it looks like it will end up 6-3 for EMA/ESA as some of us predicted, just looks like you can replace Roberts for Scalia in the majority for EMA/ESA(I'm not sold on Alito switching sides just yet).

Geaux Saints, Geaux Tigers, Geaux Hornets, Jack Thompson can geaux chase a chupacabra. Hell will stay frozen over for quite a while since the Saints won the Super Bowl.

Geaux Saints, Geaux Tigers, Geaux Pelicans. Solidarity for the Saints = No retreat, no surrender. 2013 = Saints' revenge on the NFL. Even through the darkest days, this fire burns always.

You can settle on Kotaku's for now

GP may have it up later today

Watching JT on GP is just like watching an episode of Jerry springer only as funny as the fights

America has just became its own version of the Jerry Springer Show after a bizarre moment in Florida involving a carnival worker.

EA has shuttered Maxis (The Sims, SimCity). Should it keep the Maxis name alive?:

Andrew EisenDoesn't matter if you play more games where the cast is the same basic character model. In this type of game, being able to easily tell which character you're looking at serves an important purpose.03/06/2015 - 7:29pm
ZippyDSMleeMechaCrash:Meh I've played more stuff that had pickups rather than set class's.03/06/2015 - 7:22pm
MechaCrashZarya's body type also has a pragmatic reason. Ever notice how in TF2, you can immediately tell who's who because they all have very different profiles? Same deal with Overwatch. If you see Zarya, you KNOW it's Zarya.03/06/2015 - 6:32pm

ZippyDSMleeNearly anyway the new UT game has color at least. And wow they changed to C++ 0-o03/06/2015 - 5:43pm
ZippyDSMleeCraig R.: Same reason why UT99/04 and UT3 are diffrent, gritty is the thing to do...at least it was... nearly everyone else grew out of dark and gritty….03/06/2015 - 5:40pm
ZippyDSMleeI doubt each model of characters in COH/COV/CO,ect are kept as unique model data.03/06/2015 - 5:39pm
ZippyDSMleemodel shape.03/06/2015 - 5:38pm
ZippyDSMleeMonte:I think it’s more a part of the engine, yes its more work but you should be able to have some sort of physical collision system in place to keep arms and stuff from clipping. Outside of that the data stored is just number variables to change the m03/06/2015 - 5:38pm
Andrew EisenAt least she's smiling in one of the pics.03/06/2015 - 5:31pm
Craig R.It's like somebody took the color palette and decided that anything approaching 'bright' is unacceptable03/06/2015 - 5:30pm
Craig R.Scratching my head as to why DC shows are as dark and drab, color-wise, as the movies look to be03/06/2015 - 5:30pm
MonteIf for instance you make the character fat, you need to make sure the animation of the character moving his arms and gun around, won't result in them clipping into the character's larger stomach03/06/2015 - 5:22pm
Monte@zippy, I imagine creating customizabel, vastly different body types would add a lot more complexity. Like making sure the character's animation still looks right. It can be done, but it can get complicated03/06/2015 - 5:19pm

prh99I think it probably far easier to add a character than strip a feature from game engine that was baked in from the start.03/06/2015 - 4:45pm
Andrew EisenAs I've said twice already, yes, strides in one area do not absolve anyone from criticism over where else they're falling short.03/06/2015 - 3:04pm
ZippyDSMleeI know I know one thing is not the other. Still worth nagging about.I still do not see why they do not put in body sliders and elt people make thier own body types....I'd do fat/pudgy or chibi befor I do ultra generic prefect body......03/06/2015 - 2:59pm
Andrew EisenAgain, yes, it's dumb that there's no offline mode and that's certainly something worthy of criticism but that does not make any positive moves Blizzard makes any less positive. A bummer that the issue that's more important to you wasn't addressed? Sure.03/06/2015 - 2:46pm
ZippyDSMleeBut...but... but my butthurt!!111 LOL :P03/06/2015 - 2:45pm
