all right, i'm done for the night. I look forward to you eventually acting on all these moral convictions of yours, then, Waltz. All this hot air is fine and good, but let's see you back it up by refusing to purchase any more Nintendo products until they take on your personal moral compass — money talks, after all. Stop giving any to them if you don't like what they're doing.

Don't worry — i'm prepared to wait.

@Waltz: Nintendo is a video game company, a major corporation. Their only 'moral obligation' is to their shareholders and investors, period. They're taking the steps they feel are necessary to preserve their image and userbase by making the decision to allow production of this game here and not that game there, as would any other company faced with such a set of choices. Nintendo has never purported to allow every single game submitted to them to be produced for their system(s). It's not like these guys were given a 3DS devkit, wrote the game specifically for this system, were told that their ideas were great and wonderful and oh yes we'll totally release this and then right as it came time to do so shot 'em down cold.

For the third and final time, you would have a point if there were absolutely, positively no other route for the tBoI devs to take with their game, but that's not the issue here at all. The game is already out for a major distribution service. People have downloaded the hell out of it, are probably downloading it now, are more than likely firing it up to go at it again with all the controversy one of these articles inevitably stirs up. You're not barred in any way from playing this game right now, you just (probably) won't be playing it on a Nintendo console. You have the option to buy a console or a computer that will play the game, though, just like how you have the right to patronize any other storefront that does or does not carry an item you want to purchase, a movie theater that will or won't carry a movie you want to see, a restaurant that does or doesn't serve a food you want to eat. you're getting soapboxy over nothing.

@OlympicCho: They've got the right to do whatever they please with what they're manufacturing. What you're arguing is that Nintendo has some kind of moral obligation to make anything and everything submitted to them available on their various platform(s), which is not true. Again, there is nothing to stop anyone from playing this game right now except possibly parental controls (idk how they work on Steam or not) and access to proper equipment, neither of which are any different than being able to afford a console and/or get past a parental lockout, really.

If you could cut the snark in your arguments, btw, I'd greatly appreciate it. It's not warranted at all.

@Rayword45: The first paragraph of our Community Rules clearly states the following:

... use common sense and don't use profanity. We retain the right to edit or remove any posts deemed offensive or inappropriate.

they also state farther down that

Blatantly offensive posts directed at others will not be tolerated.

if you're asking why things were edited on the first page of this thread, there were a few profanities and then an insult that I edited out in order to preclude the sort of rabid arguing that generally gets threads locked. if you've got any more questions or need clarification on anything, feel free to get in touch. :3

It amazes me that this game draws controversy and finds itself banned on various platforms, while over in the world of movies stuff like The Human Centipede exist.

There is an oversensitivity about the games industry. That's not to say you can't be offended by a game/ movie, but censorship? No. Bad.

Not all movies are shown everywhere — the one you're referring to only saw a limited release here in the US, for example. It wasn't banned, it just wasn't carried at all chains. This is the same thing IMO — the game has already been released. People can play it right now if they have a computer that'll run Steam. If Nintendo chooses not to carry tBoI, buy a console that (eventually) will.

they certainly seem hopeful in that article, though. let's face it, if Microsoft wanted the game that badly they'd have long since already signed paperwork for it.

In case anyone cares, i can totally vouch for dry rice working with wet electronics. My husband dumped out a full glass of soda onto the floor last weekend, soaking my PSP in the process (he'd been playing it and set it aside onto the floor)... he tried turning it on after paper toweling it off and it didn't work at all. I took out the battery and the memory stick, stuck the whole thing into a bag of dry rice, we left it alone until about two days ago and then gave it a shot. works perfectly :3

@TheDreamingHawk: I'm sorry you're having a hard time getting over KtWL at the moment (it's a decent anime IMO, but Tezuka's work is a bit old-fashioned for me), but I still do not get your point with regards to my own comment. i don't remember people getting argumentative over the Monster Hunter series whenever a new game hits, so i feel it's safe to assume that if they stuck horns on those lions, gave the elephants three heads, and called it 'Outdoors Unleashed: Ceti Alpha V', there wouldn't be any uproar. the anti-hunting message in Kimba the White Lion has nothing to do with what I'm trying to say.

Funny, I don't recall anyone flipping the hell out like this over a Monster Hunter game. I'm thinking if they switched out the cute widdle wions an' ewwephants for some random dinosaur-looking beasts, this would be a non-issue.

As for the game at hand, Teyon has never really impressed me before, so count me in as one of the ones waiting for a review.

People tend to come and go, come and go. It's the nature of a forum on the internet — any forum, really.

that said, i just looked at the database and did the math — provided all of the signup date information is correct (it may not be exactly; there could be some hiccups from when Ant had to convert all of the old usernames to the 'a-z, 0-9, _ and -' format) NL had a total of 600 users sign up for accounts between November 4th, 2005 and December 31st, 2007. Considering we've got over 36,000 users currently in our database, that's not really a lot of names to potentially see around on a daily basis. :3
