Recoveryanonymous liked a post in a topic by Qnz917 in Nintendo opts for Digital E3 Event once more instead of stage presentation
Nintendo is hosting various ways in which fans can participate in the excitement that is E3, even if they are unable to attend.
According to an announcement from the firm, a series of new channels to “communicate news directly to its key audiences” will be made available for “fans, media, analysts, investors and business partners.”
This includes the Nintendo Digital Event; a Super Smash Bros. tournament; a slate of live game demos from the Nintendo booth; and the opportunity for folks to play Super Smash Bros. on Wii U at their local Best Buy – similar to what Nintendo did last year with Best Buy.
“We demonstrated last year that we are never afraid to reinvent a proven tactic or to break completely new ground if we believe it will provide the best experience for our fans, followers and partners,” said NoA president Reggie Fils-Aime. “So, whether you’re attending E3 in person or joining online, there’s an amazing lineup of games, experiences and events coming your way.”
At E3 2014, Nintendo will the following experiences under the “unifying banner” of Play Nintendo:
Super Smash Bros. Invitational
2014 will see the arrival of not one, but two new Super Smash Bros. games: Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. To commemorate this occasion, Nintendo is inviting 16 highly skilled Super Smash Bros. players to the NOKIA Theatre L.A. LIVE in Los Angeles to compete in a Super Smash Bros. for Wii U tournament. Thousands of fans in the audience and countless more watching a live stream online will see new Super Smash Bros. characters clash with existing favorites in action for the first time. More important than declaring a winner, however, this event is a celebration of all things Super Smash Bros., and a great way for new and veteran fans to take part in a tribute to this legendary franchise. More information about the 16 invited participants in the tournament, the identity of the announcers, and how fans of the franchise can view the tournament in person and via webcast, will be communicated shortly.
Nintendo Digital Event
Every year, Nintendo looks for the best way to show its games and share its news with fans, media and other key audiences. In 2013, Nintendo decided to forgo a traditional press conference and use a video – in that case a Nintendo Direct – to share its news from E3. The company is building on that approach at E3 2014 with the “Nintendo Digital Event,” a new kind of video program that will reveal and provide further detail about the gaming experiences on the way for Nintendo platforms in 2014 and beyond. The Nintendo Digital Event will air at 9 a.m. PT on Tuesday, June 10.
Nintendo Treehouse: Live @ E3
This year, Nintendo will offer fans a deeper look at Nintendo’s biggest games of E3, with information directly from the source. The “Treehouse,” the Product Development department at Nintendo of America, will provide in-depth game demos live and unscripted from Nintendo’s booth. This new program will be live streamed during all hours of the E3 show. Fans can get settled in, open their browsers and experience the Nintendo games at E3 like never before.
Super Smash Bros. Smash Fest @ Best Buy
In 2013, Nintendo broke new ground by expanding its E3 activities outside of the walls of the Los Angeles Convention Center and letting fans play some of the games being played on the show floor at participating Best Buy stores. The partnership between Nintendo and Best Buy continues in 2014 and will mark the first time around the world that fans have had the opportunity to get their hands on Super Smash Bros. for Wii U.

She had nice ass though so no, I don't want that ass to be vaporized by Reaper LAZERRR POWAAAH
On the other hand, I was never too much into all that romance stuff...I was too deep in the story...there ain't no time for ass & titties when you have to save a galaxy guys, DO IT AFTER YOU SAVE IT!
Better to enjoy a safe galaxy and get all the ass and titties you want forever than to get all the ass and titties once before the galaxy is destroyed.

Recoveryanonymous liked a post in a topic by Gone too in KOTOR Canon
They're gonna screw with the Timothy Zahn period instead of incorporating and working around it. It's the easy way out.
The fact that Heir to the Empire was better than most of the things Lucas was actually involved in must be embarrassing as well.
And then there's a host of interesting characters they apparently don't give a fuck about from Mara Jade to Kyle Katarn and Kyp Durron.

Forget Star Wars canon, it's dead. they betrayed the writers and the entire fanbase that kept the franchise alive since the late 80s. At least the games won't suck I hope.
Back in Revenge Quinlan Voss, a comic character, was used by the way. It was always canon. There was a guy on Lucasfilm organizing the EU into a cohesive canon before Disney fucked it all up. For all I care Dark Empire, Thrawn Trilogy and what-not are still canon and Disney can fuck off.

That would be like buying a computer, having someone rip out one of the ODD's or HDD's and saying, "Now you have to pay extra for these ones, even though they were there to begin with. I'm not FORCING you to buy them."
You're not forced to buy an extended warranty here in Australia, but that doesn't mean it's not a bullshit practice, considering you are already covered by law.
Not having all of the extra content doesn't ruin my gaming experience, doesn't it? Funny that because having all of the extra content tends to increase my enjoyment while playing the games...so you're wrong.
Except for the fact that they can feed their families without this DLC. You are acting like Devs are all starving to death. If they were they wouldn't be doing this TRUST ME, I've been homeless multiple times. What's more this isn't exactly an Indie Game, this is from Ubisoft...they are not exactly in the position of struggling to feed their starving families.
The devs aren't giving anyone anything so stop acting like they are. They are creating a product to sell and guess what? Locking parts out of the game is considered a pathetic practice by most. Shit like this is why TPB is so popular. It is not the job of individual people to just KNOW, that devs are pulling bullshit like this, hence why it is important to talk about so people know about it.
Companies ARE NOT BENEVOLENT! They will not self regulate in a vacuum. It is up to consumers to keep them in check and to stop them ripping off their customers, bending over and accepting whatever they've got for you is a problem.
You wanna know what happens when companies try to rip people off, even a tiny bit. They go elsewhere, or get that product through other means.
Recoveryanonymous liked a post in a topic by Jackie in Will you buy the new Nintendo hardware?
Of corse it's a problem if games are to friendly towards e certain demographic
Nintendo just can't afford to release a new console now. They would alienate some of their most devoted fans. I mean why should I buy a new nintendo-console if I can't be sure if it will still be arround in two years? The only way they could make it work, if they replaced all wii u's with their new console for a nickel and a dime. 6 Million Wii U's have been sold, not even nintendo has that kind of money.
And as for the Handheld: I just cannot see the rational for a new one. They are dominating the handheld market with a very powerfull system, that's only 3 years old. As long as there is no new contender and the system isn't really outdated, there is nothing to gain from a new handheld console for nintendo.

I can't help myself but ask what does have to do with anything OP said? And in OP's defense, he did put a disclaimer...
Although, OP should've indeed worded it better.
But anyways, I can see this getting locked now.
Back on topic, I have many lines to draw from. Mostly the line of "Is it terrible?"
But there's others out there that are just... Why? Why did you turn that into a game? That's just... no. Some of it from Japan. Some of it from 'Murica. Some of it from the Middle East. But they're all terrible. School shootings, rape, terrorism, "cleansing," and just... Oh man, humans made those things...
Recoveryanonymous liked a post in a topic by Yauka in Do you draw a line in Video Games?
I like the fact I can play games that don't fit in with my views. Sometimes helps me see the world from a different perspective and not sure I've seen something that's offended me. Not always mind, *shudder* Barbie's Dreamhouse Party...all that pink!
But it's nice that we have that option, to play what we like. And on that same level no one should judge anyone for having lines that they don't feel comfortable crossing. Everyone can be, and will be, offended or made uncomfortable by something. The world is a weird and wonderful place.
Recoveryanonymous liked a post in a topic by Qnz917 in Do you draw a line in Video Games?
I don't mind when a content creator produces something that might not fit my views to be honest..I've played all type of games with various type of subjects and have never been offended by the entertainment that was offered..I wouldn't allow children to experience any kind of content with strong mature rated themes though..
Recoveryanonymous liked a post in a topic by Gronth in Im out.
Im leaving AJSA. Probably permanently.
I grew tired of this community, and few people who are in charge. I grew tired of ignoring users complaints and suggestions, i grew tired of editing and closing threads that matter to people by mods here. This is not a "community" its a fanboy club. Its either "be happy or be gone" type of forum here, so im gone. i probably still will watch AJS, but be sure, that i wont recomend this site to anyone anymore. There is no healthy relation between users and mods here, if you want discuss something they dont like they will either ignore you, or will try to threaten you with bans or warns. Evey big decission here is taken behind your backs, and you dont have any influence on this site, like changing the forum threadboards, locking the news forum for users (which is now dead because of that), or changing the main forum rules behind closed doors. OH, of course beside the fact that you may pay some money. AJSA evolved to something some of us tried to "fight" few months ago. If you will try to discuss something, you will read same answers over and over again, to the point you will not want to do it anymore.
As i said, there is no place for your thoughts here. Be happy, or get out. So im out.
Recoveryanonymous liked a post in a topic by Raizurhk in broken
Same though the reason i stopped playing was because the game was boring as hell. No idea why i just didnt seem anywhere near as fun as BF3, Not to mention half the BF community are childish prats that just have to cry about everything these days. Like the classic "waaaah the vehicle DESIGNED to take out aircraft is too good at taking out aircraft. NERF IT NOWWWWWWW!!!"
The logic of some BF players astounds me, they may aswell get dice to play the game for them.
Recoveryanonymous liked a post in a topic by Raizurhk in Im out.
If you want to discuss something none game related then just simply post it in the "General Discussion" section. Though in all fairness a mod could just move the topic to that section instead of deleting it.
And i have seen a few times where mods have warned people to be more "Professional" in their discussions or the thread will be locked. Considering how AJ publicly calls people out on his show etc this threat makes me laugh. We aint professionals we are just regular forum users.
The only distant thing i see in this "community" is for there support of console players, but this looks as though it is on the mend (slowly)
Recoveryanonymous liked a post in a topic by Matin Sanguine in Angry Joe as a public gaming speaker. Is that possible?
I remember the two of you as well, it's a shame that some of the other posters from the older forum aren't as active as they used to be (especially @Scout and some of the others). But then again, I'm not really that active myself despite coming here every day or two to check out any new topics and keep up to date with the community (though I'm a lot more prolific when it comes to posting in the comment sections of articles).
I agree as well, conditions in the current forum are certainly an improvement compared to the older one(s).
Also, in response to original topic, I'm not sure if Joe is going to hit "public speaker" levels of recognition anytime soon (though it is a very novel, and plausible, idea), but he is starting to (and to an extent, already has) gain far larger levels of popularity and awareness in the gaming community, and thus garner attention from companies/groups interested in cultivating aforementioned community.
And it's still early days, who knows what it will be like a few years down the track.

I remember you lot from the old forum when there weren't a whole lot of posters, just a group of maybe less than like twenty or so active members in the General Discussion sub-forum; it's cool that everyone's still here and all.
Also I think Joe could make a decent public speaker even in that setting

Good point there. Things have improved quite a bit on the forum side as far as ad spam and trolls go.
