@sergio: Negligible at the distance I'm talking about. Admittedly it is a good 700 miles closer than Boston but it's still 900 miles away. Chicago is closer to PAX East than I am to Chicago. If you want to create a 3rd PAX for people who can't go to the other two you do it closer to the places that are 1600-2000 miles away from the other locations. That's Texas. At the very least Kansas would be okay, that's 500 miles for me.

Dallas would be best for me, I could drive to Austin in 3 hours, a flight to Kansas hopefully wouldn't be so terrible. I live 10 minutes from the airport so that'd be real convenient.

Honestly those two would be best for me but I'd also bet on them. It's the best bet for maximizing the folk who can't make it out to the North West corner or the North East corner, there's plenty of space either in Dallas or Austin, temperates will be nice and decent 70s during the Fall and early Spring, generally no snow to deal with during the Winter, do not come during the Summer, great location.

Or maybe have it somewhere that is within driving distance of 7-10 major cities like Chicago or St Louis? Even cities in Texas aren't really in driving distance of one another.

Your supervisor asking if you had autism is likely illegal.

I'm confused how you guys can hate on the Transformers movies so much and still like The Avengers movie. They're of the same quality. You just don't want to admit it.

That quality is: bad

I agree with all of this statement.

Both are non stop special effects movies, sure. But one is written by Joss Whedon, a fantastic script writer, and the other has the worst script writing known to man.

Also one is shot so that you can actually see what action is taking place, where it is taking place, and who is involved. The other is up close shots of terribly designed robots that are indistinguishable and never gives a sense of place so have no way to follow any of the action. But Bay makes the stuff blow up real good!

Talking about Speedy Gonzales and not mentioning Mel Blanc's Mexican character from Jack Benny misses a lot:

And yes its playing off harmful stereotypes, though with less malice than our current animators:

I don't really see why porting it over would be detrimental

Development/publishing time and cost vs. potential sales and profit?

Ehh, just contract out to Iron Galaxy.

I wonder if Sega is just waiting to see if Microsoft will quickly abandon the 360. Since this could be spring/summer 2015, Microsoft may have completely closed the 360 down while Sony probably will have another PS3 revision.

I have a PS4, 360, and a Vita, but not a PS3. I have no reason to get a PS3 unless Persona 5 only comes out there, so I really really hope that doesn't happen.

My guess is it would show up in PS Now so you should be fine with a PS4.

Nintendo last year released more amazing games than any other publisher and it isn't really close. Life is weird.

Sony could just sell the movie rights of Spiderman back to Disney and pay its way out of anything. This is just foolish.
