Now here is something I find interesting the more I think about it. The game rating boards of the United States and Europe have said that Loot Creates are not considered gambling since you always receive something from the create (even though the result is not always what you want). In a way, they say it is not unlike purchasing collectable/tradeable card packs at a store or buying those capsule toys from those dispensers in front of many stores...

So I got no source for this other than the video below, but I "found" a Nintendo Switch inside a taxi.

Apparently, this taxi service in Peru called "Easy Taxi" is putting Nintendo Switches on the back of the co-pilot's (or pilot's) seat for passengers to kill time during the ride. Fittingly enough, you get to play Mario Kart. The driver told me there were only 60 vehicles in existence in the company (for now?), featuring this, so I gotta say I got lucky.

I quickly looked up on youtube to see if there are any other companies (or countries for that matter) putting this in practice. Only found a video about Easy Taxi.



When my cell phone told me my cab arrived, I couldn't find it because I did not expect the car riddled with Mario, Luigi, Zelda, etc. drawings on it to be it. Even after entering the vehicle, it took me a good amount of seconds to realize what the hell was going on. The driver reaching out with the gamepad in hand was the icing on the cake.

Didn't really think this was anything "groundbreaking", but I thought I'd share this interesting little gem. Kinda clever, really.

Yeah, they've been doing that for a few months now. I haven't used the service, but I definitely would get dizzy by playing while moving.

Petition to make a new SEGA console called Spartan.

Saberblade, you're so full of yourself. Your quotes in your signature are like a self circle jerk. Its sad that you put so much emphasis on what the stupid members here say.

I have no sound at work and all I'm getting is some random Youtuber that does nothing but talk. Any real info that's not an online petition by some moron or should I not give a shit

that is why siegfred is the superior name.
But only German people understand how to pronounce that one properly :( Sigurd is easier.
If I struggled to the end of my determination, to the end of my way of life with my followers, if the result is ruin, then this ruin is inevitable. Grieve. Shed tears. But you cannot regret.

lol, making a console with 16 gigs of RAM in this time would be insane expensive.

Looks like someone took lines verbatim from a Steam Machine page and replaced the word Steam with Spartan
Back from the bellows of hell
Back from the back of a jail in a cell
Back from the common decrees to the common degree
Back to the streets from the East
Back to the belly of beast
Back to the place of my peace
Back to me holding my piece
Anything working disturbing that peace
Will certainly meet the deceased, capiche?

Oh wow, and actual Full Metal Panic game. Anime season 3 when
Strategy RPG, most likely a copy of the usual Super Robot Wars series (same studio) with "insert anime name" characters randomly dropped there for the story, and the English name completely misunderstands the naming convention of the novels and gives us something that just sounds weird with that random "fight :" just dropped there out of nowhere. (not that said naming convention is any easy to translate)

Season 4 has already been confirmed (does no one count Fumoffu?). Just google "Full Metal Panic: Invisible Victory".

If it somehow gets localized, I'd probably get the game myself. FMP is actually one of my favorite series.

Yeah, I remember it was brought up in the anime thread some time ago. It's just that it's been so long since there's been anything real, a game suddenly showing like that is a bit of a surprise. I suppose the game is making a popularity check.
Of course Fumoffu doesn't count, it's not the main story !
