My thoughts on the "Mega Man" thing & Occupying Gaming.

After a one week break for school-work, I'm back for the attack. This week I've got a brief rant about the whole Mega-Man in Street Fighter X Tekken (which is starting to turn into Capcom Vs. Namco) before giving my thoughts on a recent twitter debate that Gabe of Penny Arcade started about Used Games, and whether they should be permitted to continue to exist.

Just to re-iterate a point I mention when talking about Occupying E3 & PAX. I'm not talking about tresspassing into the con itself (if you haven't purchased a membership). I'm not talking about camping on the grounds. I'm talking about an organized protest within earshot of the convention so we, as gamers, whether we purchase used games (by preference or by necessity), or just want to preserve the history of our hobby, can make our displeasure known in a much more significant fashion. Several people in Gabe's twitter debate (under the hash-tag #usedvsnew), said that if we really care about used games, we need to make are voices heard in a fashion outside of just ranting on message boards.

If we're going to do it, this is how.
