So in your eyes, it's not the same as sending the game?

sending the game itself, whether via gift or a physical review copy... it's not money. i think that's where CB was going with it, anyway, lol. even having them send you the code for a points card probably would've been preferable to them sending you the money to purchase one, y'know?

for some reason, Z never worked well for me. I just had to settle down and get a hang of doing it on my own. crossing off the names of those special enemies from the lists and some of the longer sequence brushstroke events were absolute hell, lemme tell ya D: but it gets easier with practice.

i will say that if you're sitting too close to the TV screen, it'll screw you up almost every time -- if you find that you keep having issues, try taking a step away from the screen and seeing how that works for you.

... so you let a developer essentially buy the next game and a half you review for you as well as their own? that's no bueno, man; you gave him a hold on you :/

@SKTTR: some companies provide review copies of games for free. not all, but some. why should them essentially giving out a review copy mean that you should turn around and give their game a better score than a game from a dev who was unwilling or unable to provide a review copy (or reimbursement for one)? that's not fair to anyone.

that said, he brings up a good point -- you do have the option to deny a payment, don't you? or you at least had access to their paypal e-mail address to refund them the extra money. why did you keep it in the first place? and why continue to keep the extra after they filed a dispute? keeping what it took to pay for the game is one thing, but keeping the entire amount... i think that's what bothers me the most about this ordeal. :/

this.

on perhaps a more forgiving note, however, you could allow them to try and play the game on their own for a while. let 'em sink or swim without the pressure of having to defeat friends in multiplayer, y'know? :3

you would not believe how common it is for devs to put shills out to trash a middling-to-poor review and talk up the game everywhere they can. it's kinda hilarious, really.

Agreed.

I despise Coldplay, though, so I'll just spread the rumor as often as I can that they intentionally stole it.

considering that they already stole it from one person, that dude would have to have stolen the Starman theme, not them. i'm not up for slinging mud at the one dude over this, lol; he's had enough problems thanks to this song :/

@Waltz: some of us can't afford to buy more than one or two games a year. if people put a lot of stock into reviews and want to try and find the games with the least flaws, it's their prerogative.

it's not that they're maxed out, it's that they're still in the process of upgrading the site, and they've closed registrations during that time. when they've got the site upgrade finished (and it could be a while yet most likely), they'll reopen for new users.

if you'd like to continue discussing the backloggery, there is an existing thread here. :3

Well to be honest most adults that I've talked with have a distain for things like manga, anime and those kinds of things. I guess what we should say is that One Piece would appeal to young adults more so than to adults (age 50+).

I have more many youth (age 10 to 16) who enjoy One Piece versus young adults who enjoy it. Most young adults that I've met from California to Georgia enjoy Naruto and Bleach although the latter more than the former. Anyway, I'm off to catch up on One Piece.

sorry to burst your bubble, but i refuse to believe that you don't already know what you're getting into when you read something made by another culture entirely from our own. manga is made for the Japanese, no matter how many people across the world enjoy it. they're not writing for some church-going kid who's outraged at seeing women with pierced ears and skirts shorter than knee-length or the six-to-ten-year-old kids he thinks are the core audience for this kind of thing across the world, they're writing for the bored guy riding a train or the high-school kid trying to enjoy his time off from school. they don't give a rat's behind about your personal morals or what you think, so read at your own risk and keep the whining to a minimum, please; it's getting old.

also, i find the ageism here somewhat annoying. who's to say what an individual of fifty or sixty years of age will or won't like? and who's to say that you yourself won't pick up this manga and read it again when you turn that age? I hope you'll be able to imagine someone of that age reading it then, at least.
