I know it isn't traditional to do so, but you did read the articles and look at the pictures, right?
You mean did I read the article with TWO pictures (neither of them are good) and the body of text that just had a bunch of "we want it to do x" in it?
Yeah, I read it. Didn't find it terribly informative.
That is all. Thank you.

If true the finding could upset a number of physics concepts we take for granted, up to and including the Law of Conservation of Energy. It also may help explain such phenomena as dark matter and dark flow among other astrophysics mysteries."

A lack of network access is a sure fire way to ensure you pick a game that's not reasonably completable without a faq. So many games during the NES and SNES era just didn't give you enough information, so you'd have to buy the guide or subscribe to Nintendo Power. These days it's GameFaqs.
Yes, it's cheating. But I play games to have fun, and looking around for hours and hours without making progress is no fun at all. I do always give myself a couple hours to really make sure I'm stuck.
I would agree with that for most of the NES games that required thought, but most SNES games could be completed without them. Sure, you may not have gotten all of the special easter eggs and whatnot (and yes - there ARE some outliers that are baffling without some sort of guide -- the latter Lufia 2 puzzles used to piss me off).
Your world will not end if you are cut off from the Internet for a few hours.
If you can't get that stuff done before you get on a plane, then you probably have more issues with time management than anything else.
Any kind of cross-country (or rather anywhere) flight and I break out my cheap ass laptop and open up ZSNES.
I highly doubt that any of these planes utilize QoS properly anyway. So the second anyone uploads a file or attempts to sync their e-mail, the entire connection comes to a screeching halt.
Sometimes people should just take the x hour ride as a chance to relax and catch up on your sleep/reading/video game time. Lord knows that the workaholic middle class could use it.
