Maybe they're going outside.
The DS version is polygonal and uses completely original graphics, so that's not even a logical comparison (and technically, it has 60% higher vertical resolution due to being two screens).
And in the case of the GBA version, you'd take 20 horizontal pixels over not having to play easy type, having a better translation, a bestiary, and having a massive post-game dungeon added to the game? Unlikely.
The PS1 versions of FF VI and Chrono Trigger are not better, IMO. Did you forget about the ridiculous disc load times? And other than that and some animated cut scenes, they're essentially just emulated versions of the SNES games.
Also, my favorite SNES games are things like Mario Kart, Mega Man X, Super Metroid, Super Mario World, Earthbound, Actraiser, and Harvest Moon. Not sure I'd put the MMX games above the originals, but there are a lot of SNES games that I simply consider superior to their NES counterparts, or that have no NES counterpart at all.
I would definitely play the GBA or DS versions of FF IV before the SNES version.
1. I put toy in quotes specifically because I don't consider them toys and was describing other people's perception.
2. I don't give a shit about race.
There's a reason I put it in quotes.
If you're not using social engineering to get elevated privileges in your middle/high school's computer network, you're not really a computer geek. Of course, we never got caught (although I'm certain that my high school "computer class" teacher was perfectly aware and just didn't care or even approved as long as we didn't actually fuck up the network).
You might as well try to argue that because one child was a boy and the other a girl, that this story is evidence of sexism.
The more pertinent differences are:
1. One was an accident and one was intentional.
2. One will be perceived by the public as involving a bomb and one will be perceived by the public as involving a gun or possibly even a "toy."
3. There was a recent very public bombing. To fail to prosecute in what could be perceived by the public as a "bombing" case could cause negative political pressure against the DA. Despite the recent public shootings, there are many with a lot of political clout who would see prosecution of a BB gun incident as a move toward stricter gun control and act against it.
I'd say these factors likely weighed a lot more heavily than either child's race. I may not agree that they should be considered factors, and I find it likely that this case will be thrown out, but I have a feeling that if the children's races were reversed (or the same), the situation would remain identical, except we wouldn't have to listen to idiotic stories about how the DA is "racist."
Because the DA doesn't have to worry about gun control politics in the second case, and everyone is afraid of "bombs," especially in light of the events at Boston.
I this case, I would say "bomb" related.
Whether this has anything to do with race is of secondary importance.
That was exactly his point. Read the Slashdot summary again. It uses the BB gun incident as evidence of racist behavior and nothing else. You'd have a better time trying to make an argument about gun control politics than race.
I realize this is a hard concept for most people who live in California to grasp, but not everyone lives in California.
People do video walkthroughs because they're easily monetizable. I can make a video for a game and put it up on Youtube and get ad partner money. If I write a text walkthrough and put it on GameFAQs I'm pretty sure I get exactly $0 forever. If I try to host it myself and put ads on my site, it's likely no one will ever read it because people will just go to Youtube, GameFAQs, or the game's wikia site if it's popular enough to have one.
It sucks, but that's how it is. Expect more video walkthroughs in the future.
It sure is. And the Ouya ain't got shit.
Sweet. We finally reached the point where we're just looking for thought crimes.
