One game by Square doesn't, that I know of. That game is Chrono Cross. It broke the mold!

I mean... what are you even expecting to happen?I expect this:
Pandora's Box has been openedIt was in reference to a technological marvel, the stargate, which allows nearly instantaneous travel to worlds hundreds of lightyears away. It had many potential benefits, but an equal amount of potential dangers. Kinsey, in this context was called out as a doomsayer because he was paranoid that it couldn't be controlled to the degree he wanted it to be.
So... I hate football. But I had a football dream."...only great players can play great football!"
The names of the backups were something ironic, too -- I can't remember exactly, but I think one was 'Toni' and the other was 'Romo'.You have no idea how hard I am laughing right now.
Favre essentially does eenie-meenie-miney-moe to pick which one goes in. Turns out the one he picks is like a 15 year old girl who wasn't actually a player, but was just some kid who had been hanging out watching games from the sidelines since she was like 10.Win. I can already imagine every Cowboys fan out there going nuts about this:
ROM addresses: 0F/FAB1 - 0F/FAF0
Ok, maybe those aren't the true addresses, but this is for the hard-wired bank,
which translates to the addresses above. File offsets are 0x3FAB1 through
0x3FAF0. Add the 0x10 byte iNES header for both afterwards.
The difference between M$ and Nintendo$ or $ony or whatever other company you want to bash is that Micro$oft has a near-total monopoly on the market with their Windows OS as a result of the crap they used to do back in the early days (and eventually paid token fines for in the EU).Irrelevant to the discussion at hand. Although if you want to draw straws that badly, Sony and Nintendo have each tried the same things in the past.
If you play video games you are flat out forced to use Windows unless you want to severely limit your choices. You have no viable alternative and there's many factors related to that but mostly that lazy devs are lazy and didn't really care about coding 'open' code that could be easily multi-platform. The thing today is that multi-platform PC releases are more and more of a thing especially with the mobile market. Sadly this has led to a lot of garbage 'mobile ports' making it onto PC but also the other way around for mobiles.Back in the day, if you wanted to play Sonic but only had a Nintendo, you couldn't. If you wanted to play Mario but only had a Master System or Genesis, you couldn't. That's no different than PC gaming. You know exactly what you're getting.
One of the primary reasons to develop for N64 compared to the PlayStation is the anti-piracy measures incorporated as part of the cartridge format. The standard copiers of the day couldn't handle the format without a ton of time and even WHEN they were able to dump the ROMs the dumps were useless.That makes the system not garbage...why exactly? It was difficult to work with in all aspects.
Remember how long it took Project 64 just to get Super Mario 64 working at a half-decent pace? All those nightmare plugins you had to figure out and individually configure? Emulation was a vastly inferior experience for the longest time until well after the N64 passed on into retro history.So now it's about emulating the system? Irrelevant.
By contrast, the format of the PlayStation 1 was almost immediately cracked with pirate copies flooding markets like China and Brazil even for new releases. Sony made some poor decisions with the external ports on the back of the PS1 and this gave the external mod chip time to flourish. The PS2 suffered a similar fate and eventually the no-mod versions came along which tricked the console disc tray into thinking it was still closed while you swapped discs. You can thank the PlayStation piracy scene for the previous and continued popularity of the old versions of Nero Burning ROM; at the time it was the primary CD burning software that could burn working pirated PS discs.A system's ability or inability to get cracked has no bearing on whether or not the system itself is a piece of garbage. You should know by now that if enough people get together to do X, Y, and Z to A, then it's going to happen.
I heard Majora's Mask was better -- but I have a hard time believing it.Don't. It improved the dialogue by printing 2 letters per frame instead of 1 like OoT. The story to MM was horrendous, almost every sprite was recycled, music was ehhhh, but the biggest thing was there was only 4 dungeons. Fifty two heart pieces to collect for 100%, very annoying fetch-quests, and the game was fairly laggy in a few spots.
Nevertheless, continuing one's bloodline may help in continuing one's legacy.If a person is actively worrying about leaving a legacy, and having kids is a product of that, then they're having kids for the wrong reasons. History will take care of itself. We're all just cogs in the process.
Why would you bother getting married if you don't wish to create a new family unit?It's what they choose to do. To have a family, to not have a family. If "having a kid" was the end-all, be-all of marriage, everyone would be getting married when they're teenagers because teen pregnancy is a thing. Marriage is about happiness for the couple, not just spitting out kids. If having kids makes them happy, yay. If not having kids makes them happy, yay. It's all the same in the end.
Yes, but what if someone wishes to pass on their own lineage?There are many ways to leave a legacy, and blood isn't necessarily one of them. It's who you are, what kind of person you are, what kind of life you lead, what you teach. THAT is your legacy. That has more of an impact that anything in your blood.
Don't drink that shit, tastes like fuckin' ketchup.I like Pepsi Blue.
