Executive orders are nothing new. They're just more used than ever.

I know what it's like to have your life yanked out from under you in an instant. Wish it on very few. I hope you recover as quickly as possible, SleepyFist.

Sorry family screwed you like that. I know that pain, and I don't wish it on but a few. I hope things improve for you, Googie.

Smoke fire etc

So much smoke. I wonder where the fire is...

Square went Sony-exclusive, tried to get other publishers to drop Nintendo's N64 and handhelds, and then supported the WonderSwan for the openly-stated goal of tanking Nintendo's handhelds.

Yamauchi wouldn't let them ever release any games on the Gameboy Advance until they begged, the former Squaresoft CEO who crossed the figurative Rubicon gone, and then when they released a Final Fantasy console game for the GameCube, which they couldn't do due to contractual obligations with Sony until they set up a shell company to do so, rather than as "Squaresoft".

It speaks volumes that Nintendo would allow Sega games on the Super Famicom, a porn game on their N64-based Arcade system, tons of games from Elf (originally blacklisted), and being very forgiving of Bandai after the WonderSwan (even almost going through with a merger), but no Squaresoft allowed (aside from Sunsoft-licensed re-releases of very old monochrome Game Boy games).

So, uh.... got any evidence for that?

Some possible reasons.

1. Possibly Nintendo's terms for this were not to most companies tastes.

2. Perhaps ultimately they didn't make a lot of money off of the Wii VC unless they were Capcom and Square and Konami.

3. Perhaps the lesser numbers of installed users in the beginning was a factor. 3DS had trouble in the beginning that is kind of glossed over today. In addition, the SNES VC only works on the latest 3DS models. An assload of potential VC games cannot be put onto the older 3DS', which are far more numerous in number.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8qrriKcwvlY (Read the following in a bitter, angry with it all tone) fucking fits better.

Who the hells knows at this point, it could go in any direction. I guess it depends on what's considered more effective in the end - Trump's barnstorming spree (no can say he isn't working his ass off for it) or Clinton wheeling out celebrities and every member of the Obama cabinet.

Claiming Clinton's wheeling out Celebs when Trump's doing the same(Admittedly not on the same scale) is a bit much.


That's just politics as usual. Both the GOP and the Democrats do it all the fuckin' time, each presidential election both trot out a mixture of fuckwit and intelligent famous people to support them. I honestly don't see a difference in that regard(Other than far, far fewer Celebs are coming out in support of the GOP this time... I can only think of about five).

I say Hillary's going to win. Trump has offended too many people and his team doesn't have a level of organization that can compete with Hill's if early voter turn-out is any indication. From what I've heard, Latinos have been coming out in droves and we all know most of them aren't voting for Pumpkinhead. Combine that with the polls and I think it's pretty clear who the winner is here.

The real question is, how much damage has Donald's campaign done to our political system, the GOP in particular and American society as a whole? He's lowered the bar for politicians about as low as it can go and has normalized and "legitimized" a sort of ugliness that has no place in 21st century America. He's more or less split the Republican party in half and I don't expect the chasm between the two sides being mended so easily. He's turned large sections of the party against itself.

I have no idea how the senate and congressional races are going to go. I hope the Republicans lose big since many of them have made it depressingly clear that they want to spend the next 2 to 4 years clogging up the system out of spite rather than moving the country forward. After what I've seen for the past 16 years I hope the GOP collapses in the near future as at this point the party in general has become absolutely useless and is only holding the country back.

You are giving credit where credit is not due, my friend. Bigotry and the GOP and the right have been associated for a long, long time. It's been there. Just look at the speeches. Look especially at how they fear mongered for so many years, and continue to do so, against anyone who is Muslim, from the Middle East, or especially both.

Look at what Paul LePage has said about just in general people of color. Google search that shit, it's horrifying.

Look at what they say and want to do to LGBT* people. Hell, Trump's VP is in full support of gay conversion facilities. Look those up too. So many horrors.

It's got a shit ton of bugs or errors(Not the same thing, but they get lumped in together because gamers as a whole can be dumb. Myself included). The count when I last checked was over 300.

And really, I see no difference between what the FF6 community does and the Bethesda engine games unofficial efforts. Shitting on the FF6 community for trying to fix up a game they love is kind of dickish.

Works for me.

See if you can flush your DNS cache. https://www.whatsmydns.net/flush-dns.html I dunno if that'd help, but it might.

Question about that Shining Force hack... How does the EXP overflow thing work?

He was talking about voter fraud, not telling people to vote twice.  :P

And yet...

(Yes, I know this was before he made his jawdroppingly stupid statement/joke/whatever you want to tell yourself)

Was a post sent to another dimension</Vegeta Ocean Dub> or something? 'Cause it looks like the topic was bumped randomly as fuck over a year after the last post.

Seems like EA was trying to comply with regulations(Maybe they got yelled at behind the scenes?) and fucked up in the process because they're EA.

I'd recommend everyone back up the data. It's never a good idea to centralize data in one place. Even if all you do is back it up to your PC, it's still a backup and can one day be restored.

So, uh, anyone take this recommendation?

*pops in*

*sees people defending him even after four separate allegations in the last few days, and after the tape where he literally admitted to groping women without their consent aka sexual assault*

Ah, it's not good to be back. Not good at all.

*pops out*

oh, and before you bring up Trump's fellow slimeball bill clinton: he's not running for president, fellas. Hillary is. It's been 20some odd years, folks. why can't you let that go?

I think the difference is the ideas of the left want people to live safe and happy.

your ideas want people like me to be shot and raped.
