@nightriff: Judging from the data in the MGS2 data tracking thread and my fuzzy memory, it seems to be Fatman.

I'm surprised Muramasa isn't on that list. Also, Guardian Heroes.

And I will fight anyone for putting Double Dragon Neon or Scott Pilgrim on a Top X list for brawlers. They're OK games, but in the larger pantheon of brawlers they should NOT be on a list.

@krullban: AFAIK, sites like Dropbox, Google or any hosting site has to comply to any claim by any copyright holder, or a representative thereof, according to the DMCA. Whatever the basis is of that claim.

Anyway, digging further in the NeoGAF thread seems to point to a third party representative of Namco Bandai Germany who is in charge of hunting down illegal download links of their content. If any past DMCA complaints were any indication, this is done by bots, and in this case, seemingly believed by any human in the chain.

(Of course, this would be the ideal place to make a joke about Germans and following rules to the extreme...)

This ideally will resolve itself (unless Durante actually "stole" From Software's code for his mode, which is unlikely) and DSFix will be back, but with the holidays ahead of us, it will take a few days.

Knowing Nintendo they're actually not intentionally creating scarcity, they're just sticking to their own plans and focusing on what they think are the more popular figurines. Just like how disc based media was ignored for a long time, joining in the hardware arms race was a silly fad, and so on, and so on.

I think that it has more to do with the combination of the nemesis system and a fairly solid, if incredibly uninspired, combat system that gave Mordor the illusion of a living, developing world more than the other games. Also, this title wasn't hampered by game-breaking bugs (Halo:MCC, AC:U, and many, many more), nor an incredible time sink that put most people off (DA:I, Divinity), nor sent out to die on a dead console (Bayonetta 2, Mario Kart 8, Smash).

In a year in which everything that could go wrong, did go wrong for a lot of games, the games that have an Unique Selling Point but are competent are going to shine.

  • Minecraft: Story mode will be a narrative-driven video game created by Telltale Games. It will be about Minecraft.
  • Mojang is collaborating with Telltale and members of the community to make Minecraft: Story Mode as Minecrafty as possible.
  • The first episode will be released some time in 2015, and will be available on Xbox consoles, PlayStation consoles, PC, Mac, iOS, and Android-based devices.
  • Minecraft: Story Mode will be released episodically, just like The Wolf Among Us, The Walking Dead, or the recent Tales from the Borderlands, which is another developer-collaboration series between Telltale Games and Gearbox Software.
  • We’re not intending on creating an “official” story for Steve, or explaining the world of Minecraft in detail. It will be a cool game.
  • The Minecraft 2 thing was a joke. No really. It was a joke.Credit:

This is getting weirder and weirder.

I wonder if Telltale remembers when the market was flooded with music games.

@bbalpert: The twist is... You build your own radio towers!!

And the next victim is... Steve Carell's Pyongyang cancelled.

This is getting out of hand, stupid, and makes you think how THQ (who published Homefront) actually went under.

That's weird, it should work. Back in the day I had no problems running US / JP games on my EU SNES with an adaptor.

What adaptor are you using? Is it like this one?
