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

the 'mod race' was one thing, but this thread is pretty creepy — I'm not so sure it's kosher to be role-playing users and/or members of staff fighting and/or actually killing one another. This is probably a line we should avoid crossing in the future, guys.

this. it was pretty hilarious to have people get all butthurt over it and then ask them why they bothered paying attention to it if they hated it so much, though :3

wonder what they'll replace it with...

Lol he didn't say the game was free.

the idea of a game being released here just because America is a 'free' country was too ridiculous to entertain, so i had to give him the benefit of the doubt.

Because it never was even confirned for the EU region. Besides, America is "Free", so that means we don't get random cancelations.

what are you talking about? Sakura Samurai wasn't free in the eShop, and we in NA get random cancellations all the time — not to mention ridiculous game delays; every region gets those. you're the one waiitng for a few titles that've hit EU or JP but not NA yet, aren't you?

as for the OP — i have no idea. Sorry D:

@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
