Scrent commented on Soapbox: Why Region Locking Is A Total Non-Issue:

I completely disagree with this article. I don't think Elite Beat Agents would even exists if not for the Ouendan series getting so much attention globally. I guess this also could be said about Phoenix Wright that was released on japan with english translation already.
I can see the damage of region-free games discouraging publishers to bring games to a market specially on the europe / america since both use the same english translation. But be impossible to play games that I want when no one is gonna make a attempt to bring those games is really frustrating.
I can list a good amount of games that I would have bought if not for the impossibility of playing it without some sort of hack or import a new console and that is sad.

Scrent commented on Uh Oh, Now Namco Goes for Single 3DS Save File:

All the times I had a save erased it was by a wrong doing, power outrage or data corruption. I would much prefer to be unable to loss all that data.

The only ones that should be worried about this are the ones that buy used games. To be able to re-gain achievements and alike are just excuses. Go tell Microsoft or Sony that you want to erase your achievements and trophies!

And a boycott sounds ridiculous. Those that buy new aren't influenced by this and those that buy used already don't give a cent to the developers!

Scrent commented on Mega Man Legends 3 Cancelled:

I guess Inafune was really the one making things running at capcom. Now that he's not there, there's no one to pull some tricks on those shareholders...

Scrent commented on Review: Diddy Kong Racing (Nintendo 64):

I never was a big fan of racing games simply because it never appealed to me to race just for the sake of being first place. Even with the story behind DKR being, as the reviewer said, rudimentary, it was enough to keep me retrying those harsh boss races over and over. That's why i find DKR a better game over MK64.

Scrent commented on Talking Point: Is Nintendo Ignoring WiiWare?:

"We have some promising indie titles such as Bobby Carrot Forever, Eduardo the Samurai Toaster, Evasive Space, Icarian: Kindred Spirits and LostWinds 2, but we’re willing to bet that most WiiWare gamers would be willing to trade all of those titles for a true Mario, Zelda or Metroid game crafted by Nintendo."

I guess you answered the question with this part of the text. During the launch of the WiiWare there was a lot of talk about how this could help new ideas to come to life by small developers and such. But if Nintendo had made a ton of games to WiiWare, I'm pretty sure that most of those great games listed above wouldn't shine like it did.

Scrent commented on WiiWare World - Best of 2008:

This top 5 became much like of what I expected. Except for Art Style: Orbient that I thought it would be Bomberman Blast or Tetris Party in the list instead!

Wiiloveit:
What can I say? I didn't have heard of SB until the game announcement. And I have be thinking it was a TV show until Djungelurban pointed me out it is a Web show. Maybe it's not our kind of humor... I have yet to check it out.

My bad! I just assumed that it was a cartoon aired on TV and didn't even tried to look into. Maybe it just miss some talk around here to make it shine. Gonna have to look at it at some time.

Djungelurban :
Actually, I'm pretty surprised to see strong bad on the list. Thing is... this show is not aired around here, so... I'm pretty sure that people are buying it totally 'on the dark' or based on all those positive reviews.
