As you can tell, we get a lot of hacks, and we can't really playtest them anymore. We used to, but it got to be too much years before I became a staffer.

Oh yeah.... uh, what?
If you mean by Public Maintenance.... so yeah.
EDIT: Seriously, what do you mean by me hacking the site? I'm not into "script kiddies"-type of hacking.
Is their a person in the IIRC channel with the same username as me? There were alot of sites (esp. gaming sites) where "Zynk" is already taken. Also I read on the Staff Discussion board that there are script kiddies in the chatrooms. Is that true?
It's a shame that the Wii U is a flop, but, in all honesty, it's really just a continuation of everything that Nintendo's been doing for the past THIRTY YEARS or so.
The company is absolutely hardwired into the mindset of "We Shall Do What We Do And Damn The World Around Us", unable to shift and change in a fluid and rapid manner. When they DO appear to be adjusting to shifting tides, they do it in such a Nintendian way that it leaves people scratching their heads in confusion.
When the world began to adjust to standardized optical media -and it was plainly obvious that the CD was the way things were going- Nintendo made a cartridge based system, and then a puzzling proprietary magneto-optical... thing... and promptly lost massive amounts of third party support.
When the DVD became the heir-apparent format, Nintendo had the option of "one upping" Sony's PS2... but instead chose that weird minidisc format, again isolating it from the third parties who LIKED having more than 1GB of storage space- and eliminating Nintendo's console as one that people just might choose as a DVD player (one reason many people believe the PS2 took off so quickly was that dual functionality).
And onward and upward- Nintendo does what it does, seemingly in a vacuous bubble away from the influence of the people that actually buy its products.
It's not game changing at all, it was a fad. A fad that is already over.
Everyone hates the XBone for including the Kinect and being that much more expensive for it. Everyone celebrated the PS4 for not including Move despite earlier plans. NONE of the most anticipated games from the last E3 had anything to do at all with motion controls. Very game changing indeed.
There were two RPGs on the Famicom before it (that used a first-person shooting type combat system), released in I think 1987 and 1988 but doesn't Zoids itself go back to like the 70s at least?
The problem with unwritten traditions is that, because they're unwritten, they can be changed by anyone to suit their own prejudices, so this particular argument is entirely worthless.
