@Morphtorok: they kinda have to do that, though — it's not like they can switch up who or what the donations were for. if I give a third party a donation they're promising me will go toward a certain charity and they choose to renege on that agreement by using the money in some other-than-stated manner, i can take legal action to reclaim my donated funds. they have two choices in this situation, either refund the people who donated or continue to donate the money to the stated charity — and that's if they had enough fine print to cover their butts adequately now that they don't have lawful permission to fulfill the promised prize for the winning party.

with all the hoopla over the fundraiser, i thought they already had gotten permission to use the game. they should've gotten that permission beforehand.

AuthorRe: Should people be satisified with the content a developer puts into the retail game that doesn't have DLC? Is it wrong to want even more content?
theblackdragonAdmin

theblackdragon

1,033. Posted:

It's not wrong at all to want more content from a game. back in the day we used to dream of sequels if we wanted more from a game series, and people (and reviewers) did and still do complain when a game feels like it's too short or ends prematurely. That said (since i see you guys in here bringing it up), day-one DLC is a load of horsecrap. Release the full game at launch, and then start adding content later on in the form of DLC if you so choose to give people more game to play or extend the game's life cycle. i've got no problem with DLC provided it's not just unlocking content I've already been sold in the form of data existing on my cartridge or disc.

and if a dev decides not to do DLC, that's their decision and it should be respected. maybe we'll get a sequel out of them someday, maybe not, but i see a game like a movie, TV show, or book series in that respect. If the creators decide a story is over, it's over, and efforts to prolong the experience usually turn out craptastic (i'd rather see a story end than to have it jump the shark, y'know). if they decide a story should play out one way, they'll write it that way, and that'll be that (except where the fan community is concerned, and that's why we have fanfiction, fancomics, fanart, and other fan-based works, folks). i don't have a problem skipping over DLC i don't want, and I don't have a problem skipping games that do the 'unlock' bullcrap instead of new downloadable content.

he apparently had this problem and has come up with a potential solution — to rub out the scuffs with an eraser. i have marks on my own circle pad and i'll probably try this if i get the chance. thank you for the suggestion, Chopper :3

hey OrdonianLink, if you're really that bored with this thread again that you want to post vulgar questions like the one I just cleaned up, I'll be more than happy to lock it for you. Just saying.

anyway, now that the mess is gone, let's move on to a different #429: What's your favorite breed of dog?
(or if you don't like dogs, just post your favorite type of cat/bird/fish/whatever... you picky people, you :3)

I love basset hounds. they always look so sad, but they're really not. They've got thick sturdy tails that can clear a coffee table in one happy wag and they think they're lap-dogs even when they're totally not, haha. They also think they make the perfect paperweight; we had one growing up who'd always come over to sit in the middle of any papers that'd been spread out in the floor for whatever reason — just in case someone opened a window and let in a breeze, i guess :3

AuthorRe: Teenage Gamer May Go To Jail For Up to 8 Years
theblackdragonAdmin

theblackdragon

1,050. Posted:

@Tasuki: read through the first couple pages of this thread, man — i'm in the same camp on this as you. I can absolutely understand why the authorities would have brought him in and how they couldn't ignore something like that given the climate surrounding that statement and where he lived at that point in time. I believe that there are some things you do not 'joke' about for any reason, and iirc i was the first person in this thread to say they doubted he'd get the full 8 years if convicted.

however, you're talking like he did kill a bunch of kids at an elementary school, and he didn't. he said something about doing so and may or may not have had plans, we have no idea. whether he meant it and was preparing to do so will come out in the court sessions, I'm sure, but you sitting there calling him a 'spoiled brat' for being depressed and on suicide watch while sitting in jail pisses me off because that's exactly how a rational human being should feel while incarcerated and unsure of their eventual fate. I'm reacting to your remark about him being a brat, nothing more. It can take forever to get through a court case like this, and in the meantime you're having to deal with the strain of not accidentally pissing off your for-real-crazy cellmate(s), accidentally making eye contact with a cranky guard, knowing full well the hell your family and loved ones are going through while you're sitting behind bars. If he wasn't showing signs of depression, remorse, or fear, there really would be a problem with this guy.

Being in jail isn't the same as being put in the corner after pushing your little sister into a puddle, it's not a slap on the bottom and a chuckle from mom or dad as you're told not to run through your neighbor's flower beds again. Jail is a horrible place filled with people who both have and have not done that of which they are accused. it's a place where bad people can and do make worse things happen — from both sides of the bars. Also, we have no idea that he is 'crying' or 'whining'. We know nothing whatsoever about his behavior in jail except that he's apparently depressed and on suicide watch (which could be for a myriad of reasons), so for you to call him names like that when he's already in the system and being handled just seems disgraceful.
