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.

Prolly lost the source code. I doubt any of the old N64 firmware stuff is lying around Nintendo...

So you mean Kotaku condemned the two fan games (AM2R and Pokémon Uranium)? (Makes sense, people accused them of doing it.)

Everyone who talked about them condemned them. Placing the blame solely on Kotaku is willingly putting blinders on yourself, plugging your ears and screaming lalalalalalalaalala to the entire situation.

And now I feel dirty for defending Kotaku. I've had to do this twice today(once in IMs). Uuuuuuuuuuuugh somebody hit me.

From what I can tell looking at it, it is just an independent re-creation of Nintendo's patch, ala the Phantasy Star 4 bug fix we got a few years back(Hell, I think I approved that one myself...).

Apparently, she has pneumonia.

Also, not exactly the first president to have health issues or campaign while having them. If Teddy Roosevelt can campaign seconds after being shot...

Pretty sure they're going for a Nintendo Power type deal(Though probably not inspired by it) where everything is as "kiddie friendly" as possible. Kiddie friendly=friendly to advertisers who have always been massive pussies(A lot of why TV in the US in the 1950s was so sterilized was to appeal to them) See what Youtube is trying to do to desperately attract as many advertisers as possible. When people all over political spectrums, topics and styles of making videos are getting hit, you know advertisers are at the core of this in some way. The Nintendo Life thing is almost certainly the same way. Nintendo is considered a kid friendly brand and has been since the 80s. As such, advertisers are gonna have certain guidelines on sites that interact with Nintendo to this much of an extent, even if the interaction is unofficial. Doubly so, I imagine, for sites with Nintendo literally in their name.

Sometimes the simplest answer is to look to history and see what patterns are repeating. Seems like this is the pattern that is repeating here.

It's compatible with most games. If you have a DS4, more are compatible due to its touchpads.

So glad to see it featured here!

Man, was I surprised with Crane's e-mail. He's super cool.

The news page works off of submissions. Someone found your hack interesting enough to do a news submission based off of it.

Prolly not. The third parties are jumping straight to presidential candidates without that much effort spent building up a massive base outside of the presidential side of things. People have been trying this for over a hundred years and it still hasn't worked. Even former presidents have tried this and it still hasn't worked.

They're using the 1800s playbook where you could have a newish party run for president without spending hundreds of millions of dollars and decades of local, state and federal elected officials before aiming at the big leagues, and it's not the 1800s.

Armored Core in general does this, not just the PS1 games. I think the only ones to skip this are the PS3/X360 ones but I could be wrong.

The Ratchet & Clank series does this on PS2 up until possibly Deadlocked. No idea about later ones.

The Witcher series is very much into this. It's a major selling point, in fact.

Possibly some of the GTA series(I seem to recall the pre-PS2 installments doing this)...

XenoSaga series partakes in this.

Kingdom Hearts: Re:Chain of Memories has shit unlocked if you have a KH2 FM save, IIRC.

I didn't read this thread because it's 70 pages long, but from perspective of someone not for the United States, the viewpoint of an outsider, I have to say that you guys there in the U-S-of-A are fucked. Just completely fucked. There is no positive outcome of this election. I just can't even believe that it has come down to choosing between a criminal and a con-man. Jesus tap-dancing Christ on a crumpet. Just totally and utterly fucked.

And can someone explain to me what happened with Bernie Sanders? The only candidate who actually seemed to give a shit about the country was the first to go. I doesn't make any fucking sense. I read a lot of articles about him gaining serious traction and a loyal following, and then 'poof' he just dropped off the radar.

I know people in the U.S. joke about moving to Canada if a certain candidate wins the presidency, but if you have the means, I think it might be a good time to give that some serious thought. Our you could come and live in Japan. I could do with a couple of drinking buddies.

He did not disappear off the radar, trust me. He just ultimately did not get the votes. He was every day news until after he conceded.

It runs off of a bot. Not sure what the exact conditions are for triggering it, though.

Re:  accuracy of polls.  They're more accurate than you guys give them credit for.  They're certainly not definitive, but they're a very, very good measure:


Though I agree that the national attitude right now doesn't really matter because lots of people will change their minds between now and November.

I think the reason it may not seem like that many people support Clinton is because a large chunk of people that do (particularly in liberal areas) only support her because she's running against Trump.  It's like a bitter pill kind of support, not a "we really like this candidate" kind of support.

That's my reasoning for supporting her. If trump wasn't so godawful, I'd sit this election out like I did the last two(tl;dr I think of Obama as a near war criminal and someone who read 1984 and went "I want to do this.").

So, yeah, I'm voting because I don't want my rights as a minority and a woman stripped from me. I'm LGBT(amongst other types of minority), and given the way the conservative wing of the country's been talking about us lately, I'm getting fuckin' proactive on this shit. I am afraid of death squads 20 years in the future. Trump wouldn't enact them, no, but he'd open the fucking door with his policies and the people who he would pick.

Edit: Clarified myself a bit.

Then I am clearly full of shit on this subject.

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.

I don't think polls can be directly reset. I know I never saw an option back when I was mod...

AoT's anime doens't work that well because it's partially finished. The manga's still going(Monthly chapters, though I believe it's set to end next year).
