+ - Capcom is Bringing Ducktales Back

Submitted by jones_supa
jones_supa (887896) writes "Many of Slashdotters are probably aware of the 1989 Nintendo Entertainment System platformer classic DuckTales, designed around the Disney cartoon series. Capcom announced today at their PAX East panel that they are resurrecting the beloved game. Developed by Wayforward and Capcom, DuckTales: Remastered is something of a remake based on the original version. The embedded video shows some solid back-to-basics platformer action. The game will be out this summer for Xbox Live, PSN, and Wii U."

I actually love Opera's feeder. Clean, simple, not beholden to web services like Google. Of course, this comes with its own set of problems:

1) Requires installing another browser and a proprietary one at that
2) Opera's mail client is utter shit (hence the reason I use Thunderbird for my E-mail or I'd just use Opera and have a one-stop.
3) Opera tends to have good releases then buggy ones. Stick to the odd point releases.(12.11, 12.13, etc. 12.14 has issues with certain pages hanging again).

The big issue I have with Cyanogenmod is the fact that it can be very difficult to do right and you risk bricking the phone by doing it.

My wife has a LG Optimus 3D (LG Thrill 4G for those of you stateside) and the last update she received upgraded her from 2.2 to 2.3.5, which was a brutal abortion of a release. Bugs everywhere and eats battery life to beat hell. After researching it throughly I decided against doing anything to it because I had to root it, then make sure I had a kosher set of files and upgrades on it first, then install CM. Frankly, she lives on the thing and if I screw it up I'm dead.

Don't get me wrong, I think the people behind CM are brilliant and I have nothing but kudos for them, however the lack of a good installer stops me from taking the plunge.
