Spoony_Tech commented on Head Teachers in the UK Issue Warning to Paren...:

@Quorthon So you don't think what a child watches or plays has ANY influence on there behavior whatsoever? If that's your stance then you'd be wrong. Not all children will act out on the negative things they see but it's still there in there minds and over time that can desensitize what they perceive as reality. For instance I just bought my son Code Name Steam so we can Both play against each other. After a gaming session he says I killed you daddy. Would he had said that any other time? No, the game had influenced him to say it. Now if he goes out of the house and to school and starts saying that to his friends then the teacher gets word of it then that could start problems. Sure it was harmless enough when said but now he doesn't have the logic to not say this outside of the house because maybe I failed as a parent to let him know it's just a game and we don't talk like that.

Either way I'm done and tired. You keep up this crusade you're on for whatever reason. I never said I was better then you and you seem to just be focusing on the negative you're taking out of my comments.

@JakeOfAllTrades Who's going to judge the maturity of some of the parents. Not all parents are fit to be parents and it's things like this that can get a child out of a bad situation. That's all I'm saying. Not everyone wanted to have a child and their actions some times show it.

My main argument is to have all children safe from harm. Kids are taken away from drug abusers all the time but some times it's too late. Children go hungry because the parent would rather spend all their money on gambling. There's all kinds of forms of neglect. Sure an M rated game seem harmless compared to what I just said but the child's mind is much different then ours and don't process things like adults do.

@Quorthon What do you think the kids of the Colinbine (spelling) shootings did years ago? They were reinacting the game Doom i believe. So yes i do believe not only video games but also movies and any media in general can influence a child to act in an inappropriate way. If they don't know wrong from right then the consequences good be bad.

@Quorthon Also at what point did i ever say i was a better parent? We are all trying to do our best but even you have to admit there are parents out there that don't need to have kids right. Like i just said this topic isn't for parents like you it's for neglectful parents that just dont seem to care.

@MasterBlaster Lol! He seems to just be trying to justify what he's doing as a parent. I don't know him at all. I'm sure from his comments he is a good parent because what parent would go to all this trouble to argue their point. This topic isn't for parents like him so i dont see why he's so passionate about it.

@Quorthon Oh we go to church and my pastor has even said the bible is a M rated book. We don't teach our kids everything in the bible till it's deemed appropriate but like I said I'm done with this conversation because I've said my piece. If you think it's ok for your kid to do those things then that's fine. Freedom is only as good as long as you abide by the laws and rules of society. Like freedom of speech can be taken away if you abuse it.

@Quorthon I haven't backpedaled one bit. No I don't drink and never plan on it. It just seems to me you're trying to justify your actions more then anything so I'll just let it go. If you think allowing your child to play or watch what ever they want isn't neglect then there's no reason to continue this conversation.

Spoony_Tech commented on Head Teachers in the UK Issue Warning to Paren...:

@Quorthon As a good parent I know everything my kids do. Sure they can do stuff behind my back for a time but I'll always find out. I have plenty of mature games in the house but they are locked out to them so they can't play them. That's what a good parent does.

I'm not saying the kids should be taken away from a family because of an M rated game. What I am saying is if they're being played and the kid is being aggressive then maybe there is a problem that needs to be investigated. You don't just go and take away a child unless there's probable cause. If M rated games are being played maybe there's more to it then just that and that's where the investigation needs to come in. If all is fine and the parents deem the game is appropriate for them and nothing else is going on then move on.

I personally don't want the government telling me what to do but some times we can't get out of pur own way to do the right thing because too many parents don't care. When you become a parent you no longer care for just yourself but you give anything to protect your kids and care for them. I've seen too many parents ignore their kids to the point they don't care what they do as long as they don't bother them. That's negligent and that's bad for the child that needs a parent's love.

@Quorthon I wouldn't be commenting if I wasn't a parent of 3 ages 8 to 2. If they're reported then maybe it can be a wake up call and the parents will start to pay attention. I don't have any worries whatsoever as I don't let my kids play anything above a teen rating and even then not all those games are for them. The only reason this is even an issue is because of parent neglect. I don't care how mature a parent thinks their 8 year old is he's not ready for GTA anything!

Oh and I just want the kids to be looked after by someone that actually cares. Braking up a family is on the parents and not who ever reports them.

@Quorthon I think if the patents don't seem to care what their kids are doing then they don't really care to be parents so the answer is yes. I've seen far too much neglect to care. I'd rather the kids be placed in homes that do care. Too many times I've seen so called fathers belittle their kids in public. Its obvious they don't care.

@TwilightAngel I think he was more complaining about the lack of tracks then anything. I agree it was good just not enough of it.

All this stuff is nice but I just want the game. Whatever happened to 2 options at 2 different prices. Of course this game is the same price but I just want the 40$ game please. No more extras to try to justify 50$ please.

Spoony_Tech commented on RCMADIAX Takes to Twitter to Outline New Strat...:

Never bought one of his games nor do I plan to. I do have Drop Block U but I didn't pay for it. None of his games appeal to me. I don't just but whatever. I do research and from what I can see his games aren't that good so no worries. There is plenty of great eshop indie stories from developers that make good games.

@CaviarMeths Lol, I just did the same. It's like they have totally cut us off from any communication. I guess it could be worse and we get no games but we have to make a stand somewhere.

Maybe I'll call that phone number I seen listed. I'm sure they've seen some complaints about this but maybe it's out of their control and Sega is calling all the shots on pricing.

I went to Twitter to complain. All I'll probably get is a bunch of fan boys calling me out but whatever. They need to know they're losing support from this.

@CaviarMeths You can't steal my rant lol. ;)

Has this one also been confirmed at 50$ I know Brake Code has but can't remember if this has.

I'm also quite surprised so many people are boycotting this price increase. I still don't have Persona Q or plan to until it comes down to 30$ as well. What a shame as I want to day one Nintendo's biggest supporter 3rd party wise. I really think this is costing them more money then making them and they should rethink this price point. Make it 40$ on the eshop and I'll day one this.

I also when to their forums a few months back to see if we here are the only ones complaining and was surprised to see they had been shut down. I need to find an email address and formally complain about this.

Spoony_Tech commented on The Nintendo 3DS is Now Four Years Old in Europe:

@rjejr You make some good points and for some you can't really point the finger at Japan this time. NA has dropped the ball far too many times and really hasn't learned from their mistakes. Of course they get some influence from Japan but they really need to step it up. Also not including a power cord/charger for the New 3ds was just plain Stupid. That might work in other regions but not hear as it's unheard of.

I'm not too bother by price cuts but it does help. My theory has always been get the systems in people's hands and let them buy games. Nintendo wants to make a profit and I can't blame them as they have nothing else to fall back on. I say give the systems away and make money on the games. Might be crazy but at least the people will have the system already.

@ThomasBW84 Well I guess Monster Hunter doesn't need to be played for hours but who really doesn't though. I find myself and I'm sure most people that got into it sitting for hours and watching the red light start blinking before I put it down. After all, with sleep mode you can play for 5 mins here and there on any games no matter what type it is.

@ThomasBW84 Wouldn't you say those same things in this review about Monster Hunter 4U though? Both games need to be played for hours in one sitting and tv or not I enjoy my 3ds a lot more these days. I'm looking more forward to playing this in 3d and on the go far more then sitting confined to the tv of which I rarely get to.

Spoony_Tech commented on Review: Elliot Quest (Wii U eShop):

@rjejr Didn't burn out on it just haven't taken the proper time with it. As for games like Shovel Knight, I for one ain't the biggest 2d side stroller fan nor a fan of graphics of the old school but there's just something special about SK that needs to be played by all fans of gaming in general. As for this, it looks enjoyable as well. Maybe not on the level of SK but a good game is a good game Reguardless of graphics. I've never cared for graphics over gameplay anyways.

@Kaze_Memaryu It's not really dl'ed automatically. It does dl a picture of the game but when you click on it it prompts you to go to the eshop of which you still have to dl it or you can delete it.

With that said I've played 40 hours on a free game and never plan on spending money. I never do for this type of game on smart phones either. I have the patients to wait and play a little at a time throughout the day.

@SpriteMaster Welcome aboard and nice first comment. I'll like your point with what Image and Form did with the Steam World game. Most would think with the success of Dig we would get a sequel but they went in another direction which is fine by me. Too many sequels in both movies and games today. Sometimes all we need is one stand alone games that says it all.

Spoony_Tech commented on Planning On Downloading Xenoblade Chronicles 3...:

@Ainze Normally I would say yes As it was a nice post but if you include a bigger memory card it encourages people to dl more and that benefits Nintendo. It's a low cost for them to even include a 16 gig as they will make up that cost in about 2 VC games. I do agree it's our choice but this here is silly as it Doesn't encourage you to dl If you're a new user to the 3ds. Nintendo makes fat more money off dl's so give a bigger card.

I thought we already covered this topic? O.o

Either way I don't care as I'm sitting on a 64 gig anyways. Still have over 200k blocks. Could pick up a 128gb for 50$ on EBay right now but not sure enough 3ds games will come out to warrant that purchase from now till the end of its life.

@dkxcalibur Then do yourself a favor and get Monster Hunter last. Why you ask, because you won't get the other 2 any time soon if you do. Monster Hunter can be played for 100's of hours and you still learn something new everyday. Steam will take about 30 hours or so to beat plus there's online, Xenoblade will take no less then 80 hours and that's if you ignore everything but the story, and Monster Hunter can literally be played 1000 hours and still mot have everything done. If you get the games in that order you will have ample time to play them all to full enjoyment!
