DS Daily: D-pad vs. stylus controls {Joystiq Nintendo}

Feb 13th 2008 10:40AM I'm surprised at how little love the thumb leash gets. My DS Phat (red mario kart edition) came with this strap that went on your thumb (or any other finger for that matter) and had a hard plastic nub that you used to touch the screen. I found this to be the most comfortable and practical way for playing games like Metroid Prime: Hunters. Both shoulder buttons are easily reachable, and depending on your handedness, either the D-Pad or the A/B/X/Y buttons are comfortably used.

I was really disappointed when my DS Lite didn't have a thumb leash. :-(

How gold sellers are transacting business these days {WoW}

Sep 20th 2007 11:38AM Regarding the "wrong-ness" of gold buying / selling, most folks are focused on whether this breaks the game. I don't think this is Blizzard's main concern when policing gold selling. I think the primary reason is to avoid the sticky subject of virtual taxation. If Blizzard were to make no attempts to prevent real money transactions for their virtual items, Blizzard could be said to encourage or allow real money transactions. If that is the case, then it is a legitimate business. If it is a legit business, governments are going to want to get their hans on a cut through taxes. And if you can tax the purchase of virtual gold, it isn't much of a stretch to tax in game purchases made with that virtual gold.

And if you don't think this sort of thing is already happening, think again. Congress was to release a report in August of this detailing their findings on taxation of virtual goods

Scary stuff. I'm sure Blizzard doesn't want to have their name attached to a new type of tax, and this is a good way to make sure that doesn't happen.

Sep 20th 2007 11:27AM This is also a fairly common practice on PvE servers when you want to transfer money between your Horde and Ally toons. With so few items on the faction neutral AH, it's quite common to see an auction asking 500g for some random grey item.

Forum Thread of the Day: Quest text that makes you laugh {WoW}

Aug 20th 2007 5:43PM My favorite is a drop, but you commonly find it while working on the Azsharite quest in Azshara. It's the crystalized note (in two forms, no less).
