i remember playing Pole Position in the arcade when I was little; it was my favorite game. I was juuuuust barely tall enough to be able to press the pedal, steer the wheel, and see the screen.

(a) according to metacritic, they gave it a 2.5. Does metacritic have the wrong score up?

(b) Considering they (OPM) weren't the only ones giving that game a bad review/score, it looks like you've got more than just them to blame if it really was the reviews alone that ran GRIN out of business. :3

@Swerd_Murd: you sound pretty bitter that other people were willing to participate in a radio contest to try and win something for their kid. That's all it was to them -- a radio contest. Who dies from one of those? According to the court documents, the contestants weren't notified about the dangers of water intoxication, nor that they could die from attempting to perform the 'hold your wee for a wii' stunt. A nurse even called in informing the defendants of the dangers of water intoxication and that the contest could wind up with someone dead, and their response was 'oh, they all signed release forms, so it's okay' (even though the lady who died, at the very least, had never signed one). Those guys didn't do their homework or consult a doctor before beginning the contest, nor did they bother to listen to the person/people warning them while the contest was underway; by continuing to egg the contestants on even while they were feeling unwell or in distress bladder-wise, it's serious negligence on their part.

If you're saying that you personally wouldn't have gone through with a lawsuit if your wife had done something so dangerous and died of it, that you feel it would've been her fault, great. Good for you. But that family didn't feel that way, and it's totally your bagadouche side talking when you say you're 'irate' that a family was awarded (insert sum here) by a judge and jury for the death of a loved one. Where do you draw the line? What do you feel is the monetary value of a wife and a mother of three? (note that the family did not specify any numbers in their complaint, either -- that number came from the judge and jury, not them.)

all that aside, that award will probably be whittled down by future reductions (as happens regularly in lawsuits with large monetary awards) and lawyer's fees, so even though they were awarded $16.2 million, they'll probably be lucky to see half of that, and in the meantime, that father has lost his wife and those kids will have to go through the rest of their lives without their mother. Money won't be able to replace that, but at the least the kids'll get to go to college and the finances won't be so tight on the husband (three kids are some serious baggage, there's no telling whether or not he'll be able to remarry before the kids are grown).

Yea that's what helped me find all of the secrets in the game. Like cheetahman said, if the level's dot is red instead of yellowish it means there is an alternate exit (must find key)

not all the secret exits are keyed, though ;)

Did you try deleting your cookies from NL, Metang? You can also try holding down the shift key as you hit the reload button in your browser; that works for me on the computer i'm using at the moment (it's running kubuntu and won't do anything when I hit shift+F5, though it reloads normally when i just hit F5).

@waltzelf: good point... i mean, they won't even transfer games from DSi to DSi unless one of 'em's busted. if there's no way to do it, there's no way whatsoever I'd be tempted to upgrade (even though it's not really an upgrade, but whatev').

@Superman: The only person whose time was wasted in here was mine, having to clean up the mess you started by personally insulting people who enjoyed SPM. I advise you not to continue wasting my time by continuing to insult your fellow posters.

As for Paper Mario 4, I have the sinking suspicion they're gonna try and continue the SPM format with the next installment. I hope my gut is wrong on this one... SPM was fun the first time through, but I've tried to play it through since then, and it was just boring. Everything's so empty; there's not enough enemies around to make it challenging until you get to later stages in the game. I do want to see more in the way of the Sammer Guys and the secret dungeons, though -- those were fun, and the Sammer Guys were my favorite part of SPM. :3
