@matthone It's so nice they made the effort to include the Khmer Empire, as it influenced many of the surrounding cultures and countries (there are ten million Khmer in the south of Vietnam alone). The temples themselves are unique to each country also, so I hope they nailed the styles!

Nintendo punishing Pokémon Sun and Moon pirates by blocking 3DS online access

@_TheDarkSide_ Removing physical sales and preventing/stopping the second hand market from existing.

I don't use it anymore, but then I only have a PC. I had a PS4 and would sell games on (trading didn't exist where I lived), mainly because I had no desire to play them again (either I'd finished them or didn't get on with them).

@_TheDarkSide_ The moment you start that, you are pushing people to PC gaming, which is definitely a cheaper way to play, but not something the consoles manufacturers are necessarily going to want as they make money from every single game published.

I see second hand gaming as a necessity, or we'll be at the behest of the console manufacturers as they can shut it down at any time - we'll lose the ability to play our games past the shelf life of the console, as backwards compatibility is something that was only added as an afterthought with the Xbox consoles, and completely removed after the 60GB PS3s.

@IncredibleBulk How so? Microsoft did the same with Xbox and Xbox 360 consoles when they used them online (modded consoles and games), and I support that.

I have pirated in the past, mainly because I was too eager to play Halo 2, for example, because it leaked months before release. I fully expected to be banned from Live if I had taken the console online, so I didn't. I used that Xbox for retro games and videos, and another console for legitimate games (I obviously bought Halo 2 when it came out) so I could play them online.

I absolutely hated the teaser in the best way possible: scarier than any horror film or game I've ever watched or played. Incredible feat that should not be cancelled as a full game. Hoping there's a way around this to crowdfund it or SOMETHING. This game simply has to be made.

@hazzatori I'm not likely to be able to buy all those games for £24.. so it makes sense to do this, especially since I won't play Battlefield - or indeed any of those games - for more than a year anyway.

Great value now; they may bugger us in the future, but you can always unsubscribe.

@Xs1ght It's exactly that - I stumbled upon the Golden Computer Centre just by walking around a busy district (Sham Shui Po), completely lucky in that regard. The condense nature of Hong Kong means you need to know where to look - there are remarkable things to be found including a manga cafe.. where it's all in Cantonese. I stayed for a grape Fanta and some computer time.

Except you can - with Donkey Kong! Supposedly THE exclusive game, and it sells.. a few - only to be beaten by Fable and Donkey Kong. Next year will change nothing, just like last year and the year before that. A solid console but nothing fantastic that shifts systems like Tomb Raider, Halo and Mario 64 did.
