Well, for one thing, this went on for six months. For another, the person in question was 19.

Mix of both. Third party games were hard to sell on the Wii and DS at that time(Friend of mine who was working at Vicarious Visions at the time mentioned the DS factoid to me in an e-mail once, and low third party sales on Wii outside of dance games and early stuff was something that was much reported on back in the day).

Also, part of the issue really wasn't that it was low sales, but also that the tech was so obscenely different that it was hard as hell to port. You basically had to have a 100% code base. The Wii was basically a DX 7.5 system while the X360 and PS3 were DX9.5 systems. If the Wii had been the same basic tech generation, but still as fast as the version we got, we'd likely have gotten a shit ton more ports.

I was referring to mz's post, not your's. :P We allow advertisement posts if cleared with the mod team. You didn't clear it. Add the link to your sig and delete the OP text, plz.

That's not really advertisement, that's informing the rest of the board. FWIW, we're fine with people putting stuff in their sigs. It's even in the rules.

Yeah, this is '80s style through and through. Though, BHC3 was a '90s production. '92 or '93.

She didn't die, for the record.

127
Im guessing rights to use the names and intellectual property rights were non-existent in the game. Also they rip off the Predator when you go to the secret level :P Doesn't get any more 90's than that! Not sure why they used Eddie Murphy though for a character choice when all the others are action stars :P

Beverly Hills Cops 1/2/3.

On-topic, I don't really know why General Leo is popular. I've only played FF6 once, but apart from the moment he decides to turn against Kefka, I have no memories of him at all. What does he do besides that?

He has Shock, which was an always multi target non-elemental equivalent of Fire/Ice/Bolt 3. It hurts. A lot.

I'm not referring to gamesharking her in. I'm referring to doing what this hack did; Adjusting the story to account to for her being back/not dying.

Now we need another mod for FFVII in which you could resurrect Aerith, hehehe.

Eventually. It'll take a lot of time though. Much more of the game would have to be altered, percentage wise, than FF6.

Doesn't matter if it looks fake or not. I can always tell. I don't know why I hate it so much. I just do. LOL

You'd like Mad Max: Fury Road. Movie has barely any CG. Almost every effect is practical.

Including the flamethrowing guitar.

Deleted Anapan's post.

Don't make offers to buy IPS patches and ROM hacking work, folks.

Trust me when I say CG ain't cheap. A lot of the money in blockbuster films goes to the CG. Render farms take a shit ton of electricity, yo.

Anyway, I liked the design for the ED209 in the remake, but you barely see it. Woulda been nice to get more of a look at it.

I guess I preferred the setting and dialogue and acting.

As for Robocop since that came up:

Robocop 1 is by far the strongest. The remake, which is more like a re-envisioning or whatever term you'd like to use, is the second best. Robocop 2 has some neat stuff and a scene that is unexpectedly horror like, and the third has like one or two good scenes.

The little girl hacking the ED209 is legit funny and I will always defend it. The giant killer fuck you bot saying "I am a little puppy" will always make me grin.

I don't care what anyone says, the third one's the best. :P

I still feel that way, but I would say the third one is also the most flawed. Weird opinion, I know.

137
What would you like to see and where would you like to see it? We can surely make it a reality. :)

I would say change the "New Game Write-In" text that marks the new game entry portion of the form/s to say something like "New Game Entry", or "Is The Game You're Submitting A Hack For Not Listed? Add It Here".

By the way, I'm sorry for the late reply, Nightcrawler. I forgot about the topic until a bit ago.

Well I haven't played the "dick nazi" hack, but did it come with a (seemingly) serious message about dicks/nazis/dick nazis being underrepresented in games, how it's something the gaming community needs to face up to and how germans/male nudists can finally have a character to relate to? I would guess not, and by the name, I would think it is mocking nazis and not the opposite, or just doing something absurd for the lols and not activism. So spontaneously I don't think it's a good comparison.

My point was we don't really discriminate against content in general unless it's outright hate speech. I suppose I should have been clearer about that.

I'm sorry to hear about your father, Leever. If you'd like, I can edit my comment and alter the suicide part to be something else.

They've caused 6 page threads in the past many-a-time, Midna. Many-a-time.

For the record, I made that joke, which was more an expression of frustration, as someone who has had suicidal tendencies in the past and suicidal idealization.

As for soap box... We have dick nazi hacks on the site. I think that says it all. Dick. Nazis.
