I'm 90% sure the only reason Feld0 keeps this site still running is because of the ad revenue.
Usually, forums only make enough ad revenue to sustain themselves, and that's when they have a decently large active userbase. MLPForums is much more active than this site has ever been, and yet Feld0 has to rely on user donations to actually maintain the damn thing because the ad revenue just can't keep up with the costs of the website.
I'm certain the only reason the site is still up is because Feld0 is too attached to actually to take it down. And because it's being maintained by MLPForums donations.
As far as being the protag of a mainline Zelda game? No. Link has always been a male. No matter what people say, Link is a character, and he's male. There's a reason he always looks similar (green tunic, yellow droopy hair), and he's always called Link in non-Zelda games. MK8, Smash... Always referred to as Link. Changing that for no reason other than to appease SJWs is not a good idea. If they come up with a good story (or even better, gameplay) reason to have a female Link, then by all means, do it.
Linkle being the protagonist of a mainline Zelda =/= Linkle being Link.
Either way, Link as a character is not defined by his gender, so I don't know what your problem is here. It's not the same situation as in, say, Mario suddenly turning into a woman, because Mario in every game is the same entity while most Zelda games have a different Link.
To all the people saying Mewtwo is too expensive, go google the Skullgirls Kickstarter debacle to get a good rundown of how much developing a fighting game character costs. Charging $4 for him is hardly unreasonable.
CUD, when I buy a disk, I expect to be "entitled" to the contents of the disk. There's no justifying when a company sells me content and then tells me to pay for it again once I try to access said content... which is basically what companies do with locked-in-disk DLC.
And on another note, stop saying free content. It's not free content, the publishers accounted for the extra game modes when they set the price.
It was some indie developer who was crying because he wasn't making money.
"Maybe you should have considered buying the individual games you wanted" "You'd save money" So I'd save money by buying a Â£10 game by itself instead of spending Â£8 for 8 games? Makes sense.
Sure I'd be supporting the developer more by buying the individual game, but he put it on humble bundle, that was his choice, and I'm in the wrong for giving money to charity and getting his game out of it when he clearly chose to put his game on there for people to buy? I'm not forcing him to do anything. and it only makes sense as a customer to buy at the cheapest price.
Also the games that I haven't played I was never going to buy in the first place, so the developers of those games got 50p while they wouldn't have gotten a penny if it wasn't on the humble bundle.
... Not making any money is a big deal. You kind of need money to eat.
You'd save money because you would only be buying the games you're absolutely sure you want, instead of the ones you think that look kind of interesting and decide to wait for them to go on a bundle. I'm gonna wager you don't wait for Nintendo's games to drop in price.
It's their choice in the same way jumping down was the choice of someone surrounded by flames on the roof of a building. These devs chose to run through the flames, because they don't have any other choice if they want to survive. See, when you sell games for pennies, you create market expectation about the price games should be selled at, and so devs who develop games that should be sold for $15 are forced to sell them for $2 on sales or bundled with 7 other games for pennies, because the market simply won't buy them at the standard price anymore. Couple this with Steam greenlight, which effectively opened the floodgates to allow anything to enter the platform, and you're pretty much recreating the exact situation that lead to the crash many years ago: Steam is a flooded market where the customers don't have any real way to tell what's good from bad, so they're just buying what's marked down, which makes it impossible for the larger companies (mid-tier developers like Paradox and indies like SuperGiantGames categorize as this) to make a profit off of their sales.
That could eventually lead to those larger companies making the good games to throw their hands up and give up on investing time and money on the platform. It's impossible to tell exactly how this will manifest at this point, but you can be sure it won't be any good for the industry or the customer.
But you know what? I'm sorry for targeting you. It's not your fault and it was stupid of me to insinuate it is.
I'm looking at my steam list now, about 30/71 I've actually played. About 25 of them itself is from a humble bundle where I only wanted 1 game from the 8 they gave me.
Congrats, you're part of the problem. Maybe you should have considered buying the individual games you wanted instead of screwing over the developers by forcing them to share your money with 7 other developer teams. You'd save money, have a cleaner steam library and support the developers of the games you like all at once.
So now that I got reminded of this thread, you really should add Trauma Center to your list of games.
It's a crazy good puzzle game that makes great use of the touch screen and has easily the most whacked out plot that goes totally anime in the best way possible. It has a very solid remake on the Wii, though, so if you want to get it there that's fine as well.
I'll also second Order of Ecclesia, it's the best Castlevania game on the DS by far.
I almost want to recommend Flower Sun and Rain but it's a game that is so bat rainbow insane it makes David Lynch films look sane. So I will throw the name out but a play at your own risk.
I'm gonna have to check this out, I didn't know Suda developed a DS game.
Sony has crap protection. Thing is they could cure cancer and you would post some hatred article is all I'm getting at.
If they didn't pull crap like this Nollog wouldn't have any "hatred" (an article proving Sony has terrible customer support is apparently a hate article. lol) to post, would he? Why the hell should we give Sony a free pass when they treat us like crap?
