Nintendo should have had a TV out option on its portables long ago. The games are a lot of fun and if you have to play on a small screen, fine but I'd really like to play on a big screen when home.

Since they went with cartridges it wouldn't be a surprise if it's backwards compatible with 3DS games.

Also with flash storage vastly over performing spinning media, it's a very smart move to go back to cartridges instead of sticking to whatever spinning disks are currently available.

This was known to Johnson and the FBI at the time, who chose to do nothing.

I wonder why that is. Because after all, if

During the election of 1968, Johnson was trying to bring an end to the Vietnam war.

then Nixon's action would be in direct conflict with that objective, right? Did Johnson just no longer give a shit? Or did he hate Humphrey more than Nixon? Seems unlikely, since he endorsed Humphrey after pulling out. I'm just going to leave it at that, lest someone think I'm sticking up for Nixon.

It's so obvious the guy is a Patriots fan when you see sarcastic, biased writeups like this:

PUNISHMENT: As punishment for filming the game from the wrong location, NFL commissioner and former Jets public relations intern Roger Goodell fined Patriots head coach Bill Belichick $500,000, fined the Patriots $250,000, and docked the team their original first-round selection in the 2008 NFL Draft.

Why was the Spygate penalty so high? Small picture: because Goodell was really pissed-off that he told Belichick to do something and Belichick ignored him. Since it was his first year as commissioner, he really, really wanted people to respect his authoritah!

PUNISHMENT: When you are consistently outplayed and outcoached by the same team year-after-year (or worse, lose to them in a Super Bowl) you WANT to believe -- you NEED to believe -- that the only reason you can't match up is because of some mysterious Patriots' black magic voodoo cheating.

To keep your sanity, you make up fairy tales to soothe yourself. I get that, I really do. I used to feel the same way about the New York Yankees when they were good. I sympathize.

Meanwhile, he reports entries for other teams that had unproven accusations leveled against them as if they were proven. Being a Pats fan doesn't make him an unreliable source, but biased reporting does.
Butthurt Red Sox AND Patriots fan? Confirmed.

In a truly free society, people could just murder, assault, rape, and steal with no consequences, except for vigilante justice. That's why we make these crimes illegal.

So you equate unpopular speech with physical actions like murder, rape, and theft.

Good: comic creator wants to fix the belligerent, intolerant message attached to it by wingnuts.

Bad: comic creator decides to do so by using an belligerent, intolerant message that attacks a guy who had nothing to do with the ill-gotten appropriation of his character.

Captain Gumption here.

Yes, a private citizen should get to decide how he's monitored.

I find the idea that he mentions being "more honest and open" indicates that he's worried about PC police as much as copyright infringement. The belligerent left is really beginning to destroy art and free expression from all directions.
