... And don't get me started if you want to get your little game onto a device so you can show your friends!
If your son/daughter is reasonably familiar with Phython (e.g., someone above mentioned rudimentary hangman-esque games), provided you don't mind helping (a little), Kivy is a fairly straightforward Phython library that can get a game from console to device (Android) with a decent UI. You can run your creations on Android in either the Kivy launcher, or compile to APK. The wiki is good.
Members of Club Nintendo earned "coins" by registering products or completing surveys. They could exchange those coins for downloadable games, posters or character figures.
No more. Coins can still be earned until March, and redeemed until June.
A new loyalty program will be phased in over in the summer for the US, but no word on what offers it will bring, or said program's availability in other areas.
I myself got a few freebie games from this program, and am disappointed to see it go.

OK, here it goes, and EVERYONE has seen all this in film:
Self lacing shoes
Self drying clothes
Formfit clothes (ie one-size-fits-all with automatic seam adjustments and all)
Ten second dehydrated ready meals (fifteen?? Are you NUTS!?)
adjustable baseball bats
Fresnel binoculars (I've seen something similar but in a loupe not a distance ocular)
And of course, the Max Headroom shop tellers, using such glitterati avatars as Ayatollah Khomeini, Michael Jackson, Rappin' Ronnie Reagan, Qadaffi...
What'll we end up with? Another fucking season of Big Brother, more shite from Simon Cowell, more denials of inappropriate behaviour from Buckingham Palace (but we won't know what they're being accused of because any complaints made against the Royal Family are now a matter of national security!), and more false flag bullshit from the Western Governments to even further shit all over our rights as citizens while we get taxed to death
Good news! You can knock one of those items off your list. Nike's on it!.
." So you get things like mandatory Grade 13 for students going into Ontario universities (but those from outside the province don't need to take it), mandatory business closure on boxing day (even though the reason for this is lost in the mists of time for most),
Outdated info. The Ontario Academic Credit (OAC/"Grade 13") year was removed by Mike Harris (PC-ONT) back in `01-`02 (a sibling was a member of the double-cohort year [Grade 12s and OACs graduating and applying to university at the same time -- basically a royal clusterf***]). Also, I worked retail through my teens (`90s), always worked the 26th of December. And no, I was not in a designated "tourist attraction" mall (and yes, that loophole IS stupid -- either it's illegal to be open on x day or it isn't), nor were fines levied against my employer at any time. Closed on Christmas Day, yes; Boxing Day, no.
From the article, it's apparently an online radio service, similar to Pandora or Spotify, except for the fact that it works in Canada.
There, FIFW. Google had better not break the one service we can reliably use up here without jumping through proxy hoops, or a bunch of us'll be pissed. I'm preparing the maple syrup cannons, just in case, eh?
The streaming part works perfectly fine, even over slower Wifi. Gamepads aren't recognized on the remote side, though - tried Sonic Generations and my gamepad didn't show up in the config.
Sooo, Valve... could we have controller support for streaming, too? Pretty please?
FWIW - Haven't had an ounce of grief using either a wired or wireless (with dongle) 360 pad on the client machine since back in Feb. with the beta (Win7 serv. --> Win8 client). Mind you, I do have the controller drivers installed on both machines (and in the case of the wireless pad, have a dongle attached to each -- they're $8 on amazon) -- maybe that's the trick?
I'm gonna see how my 6850 handles Batman: Arkham Oranges.
I'm confused. I thought Slashdot was against GMO... or is WayneTech growing their oranges organically?
Either way, mmmm, oranges!
StarCraft 2 took 12 years and was great.
Diablo 3 also took 12 years to release, and it most certainly wasn't great.
the CPU vendors need to start stacking them onto their die.
In 5 years your systems will be sold with fixed memory sizes, and the only way to upgrade is to upgrade CPUs.
Stacked vias could also be used for other peripheral devices as well. (GPU?)
Problem with this, of course, is that Intel wants to stop having slotted motherboards. Chips will be affixed to boards. Makes RAM upgrades a costly proposition, no?
