What the heck is MiFi??

about $149.99 with a 2-year data contract. :P

@irken: i meant price-wise... MiFi is way more expensive than a one-time purchase of a wireless router. if StarFox's limitation isn't due to money, though, my bad -- MiFi would totally be a valid suggestion in that case. :3

All this will probably do is re-introduce old Marvel cartoons on the Disney channels

i thought they already did that on Jetix and whatnot?

either way, i'm more interested in what Disney has planned for their theme parks, and how it will affect Universal, especially with IOA's Marvel Superhero Island being... well, Marvel Superhero Island. From what I've been told, Universal gets to keep exclusive rights to attractions based on Spidey, the Hulk, Storm, and Dr. Doom, but that leaves a metric buttload of characters up for grabs, and with Disney behind it, i'd imagine they could come up with a ride to one-up Spiderman no-problem, and holy crap that would be so awesome. I don't know whether or not Universal would ever be able to expand MSHI or put in any new Marvel rides (not that there's really room for it, but whatev') without having to go through Disney first now, and the same goes for new meet-and-greet characters.

also, the HHN planning team is going to have to be really careful about anything planned in IOA and what they parody in the Bill & Ted show. i mean, i know Disney regularly tells the Bill & Ted team to cool it with their parodies, but it would be even worse if they actively told them 'hell no, you can't use these characters at all or we'll hold it over your heads the next time you want something Marvel-related out of us'. Sony already did it to them before, but Sony wasn't Universal's direct competition... Disney could make it far worse for them if they screw up.

i could see Disney wanting to do the more 'Spiderman and Friends' type kid-friendly things in their parks, though (especially for Mickey's Not-So-Scary; the character meet-and-greets would be such a draw for them), and let Universal keep the beat-the-bad-guys-into-submission and other nitty-gritty stuff for more mature theme-park-goers... or, as I said before, there's so many Marvel characters that aren't in active use by Universal for rides or as meet-and-greet characters. There's plenty of Marvel as-yet untapped, so it'll be great to see what Disney comes up with. :3

You have a point. I don't think this is the first time I've seen him apologize hidden away somewhere, either. But I think I understand his problem, and I don't really hold it against him. He misunderstands the purpose of some posts/threads, creating arguments out of thin air...but it's cruel to blame him for that unless he's doing it on purpose, which is hard to judge. He argues some good points in a bad fashion...so he's just not too good at civilized debate. Common problem on forums, and I still say he's WAY better than your average user on most other forums, so no problem there either, imo.

Basically, I think he get more ridicule than he deserves, being brought up in discussions he hasn't even posted in like he was a joke in and of himself. Nobody deserves that kind of treatment, imo.

back when he was still being a jerk and behaving kinda troll-ish toward everyone about everything, i would have disagreed with you. however, from what i've seen out of him lately (past couple months, maybe? my sense of time has never really been all that great lol), i must say i admire his perseverance, and i'm kinda glad he stuck around. :)

that's all right -- everyone who was here back while you were still going through your super-argumentative fits will always know you as Eugene, no matter how many usernames you go through. :3

as for gaming quirks... I am not a Metroid fan. I've dabbled in them, but i have never actually played a Metroid game to completion. 's just never been my cup of tea.

also, i prefer to watch other people play FPS games, even though I'm perfectly capable of playing them myself. it's more cinematic if I'm not at the helm, y'know?

Assuming this post was equally sincere, I don't think it's fair that it's been ignored thus far.

assuming it was sincere, i don't think it's fair that it wasn't posted in a topic all its own. this kind of thing deserves the spotlight, not just a random place in someone else's apology thread. :3

eh, Guitar Hero is kinda boring after a while, to be honest, unless you've got friends around to play with. it's more fun with more people playing. also, in wi-fi play, be prepared for people dropping out at the end of the song all the time if they're losing. :/

@MetalMario: if you click the 'read full review' link beneath the text Metacritic excerpts from each review (unless it was from a magazine, in which case it'll give you the date and page number), it takes you to the website where you can read the actual review.

agreeing with Devil_Hunter_Dante. Metacritic doesn't just collect numbers, it links to the reviews if they're available on the internet and shows excerpts of reviews from magazines I don't get (Nintendo Power, Game Informer, etc.). I've been checking Metacritic for years now before buying games, and I'm glad to see Nintendo Life's reviews showing up there now too. :3
