Nov 12th 2010 10:08AM Don't they already own the phrase simply by virtue of the fact that they own the trademark on the name "Donkey Kong"?
Jan 2nd 2009 12:11PM You know, it depends entirely on the attitudes of the other group members.
I really don't mind wiping if we're having fun and everyone has a good attitude. Just finding mature, fun, easygoing group is worth any repair bill, if you ask me.
But when people are jerks -- for example, causing wipes because they are impatient, constantly ordering other people around, or blaming everyone else when the fault is theirs -- then I have little patience, and just one wipe may be all it takes for me to say hey, this isn't fun... I'm not paying $15 a month to be treated badly.
Apr 19th 2008 5:40AM Don't forget to consider a game's price, because the games which hardcore gamers favour are also the most expensive. A lower priced family title might sell more units, but not necessarily make more money.
Apr 13th 2008 4:00PM She's a fantastic actress; we started watching Lost because we were flipping channels and saw Delenn! It would be a real waste if they just killed her off like this.
Apr 2nd 2008 6:04PM I guess there's some poetic justice in Microsoft having to worry about someone else's monopoly... but seriously, do you think that Sony could legally get away with gouging only Microsoft?
Nah, I'd wager Sony would be perfectly happy if future Xboxes carried a blu-ray drive, regardless of the console war. They'd be making money off the success of both consoles.
Mar 31st 2008 6:58PM Joystiq, why would you want to ruin the fun by posting this? But you know what? Nothing makes me laugh more than the people who have to announce "This is an April fool's joke!" -- as if they are smart and figured it out first. Well guess what; you're not smart. You're the biggest April fool of them all.
Mar 17th 2008 7:18PM Truth be told, the games industry doesn't seem to be working hard to respect the point of M ratings. Explain to me why Halo, an M-rated game, now has a Lego Halo kiddie video game in the works...?! Face it, Lego-age children in a normal household should not have any knowledge of the M-rated Halo franchise. (Same goes for the Lego Indiana Jones game, really -- those aren't children's movies, but Lego is a children's product.) Who is to blame? Bungie and Lucasfilm for exploiting their brands to ridiculous extent, or parents for buying children's products based on M-rated games, and R/PG-13 film properties?
