@jeust: I'm not saying every game pirated is a lost sale, but they're enjoying the hard work of these people and offering nothing in return. That's a really shitty thing to do, especially to people like Indie devs who have to struggle just to make these games a reality.

If your some rich suburb kid who could afford it, yeah thats shitty. If your a poor college student , or just poor in general( US or foreign) I cant look down on you,it sucks. There not gonna buy theses games anyway and I think alot of indie(not all) are atleast happy there game is getting more word of mouth.

As a poor college student I understand that sentiment. I still wouldn't pirate an indie game though. If there's any game a college student could afford it would be one of those. They should go pirate a game from a big budget company who wouldn't miss their money.

@jollus: You could try renting a copy of black or white from Gamefly or somewhere. They don't make it easy to delete pokemon saves so generally rented copies have a file on there. It's not unlikely that they will be post Elite Four, which is when you can transfer pokemon from Diamond.

I think the reason a lot of Americans haven't left their state or their country is because they're really big. My state is comparable in size to many European countries, so if I want to go out of state, it's going to be a pretty pricey adventure. There's plenty of stuff to do in Arizona that I haven't gotten around to yet too. I should probably see the Grand Canyon sometime.

Yup, that's the reason. Except in the north east, our states are pretty freaking big.

I've only been to Canada, which, as someone else said, barely counts.

Yeah the northeast is pretty different. Which is why a law like "No speed limits higher than 55!" seems reasonable to some northeastern drivers, but flabbergasts people in states like mine.

Yes, I've been to Mexico because it's only about an hour away. I haven't really done anything there though. I'll take a proper trip down there some day. My bucket list requires me to visit Japan and at least 2 European countries in my lifetime as well.

@max_cherry: I'm sorry but if you're not willing to actually discuss this, and you're just using this as a platform to get more signatures on the petition then I think this qualifies as spam. Flagged.

What the fuck are you guys talking about? The principal is not an innocent party in this. He is the one who made the decision to make the streaking incident into a criminal matter and accepted an interview on broadcast TV with out considering the consequences of his actions. He needs to be held accountable, lest you want America to continue to drift in this disturbing direction. Yes, America has many problems with its justice system, INCLUDING a supposed community leader using it to hang his 15 year old student out to dry. I know it's just a drop in the bucket. But we got to start somewhere. So could you please just sign the petition?

Streaking being a crime is actually what makes it a criminal matter, not the principal. It's his job to discourage this kind of behavior and so he did. How was he supposed to know this would lead to the boys death? Do you realize he's going to be living with this guilt for the rest of his life for the role he played in all of this? What good would come of his forced resignation?

Is this for competitive play or just in game? If it's for competitive play you'll almost definitely want swords dance on that guy. Flare Blitz and Hi Jump Kick are the best stab moves for him, but if you want him to be a little bit more survivable maybe substitute one of those moves with Blaze Kick or Sky Uppercut. With a naughty nature you could also go for the mixed attacker route, and have his fire move be Overheat. Blaziken's got all sorts of fun toys, so it kind of depends on the rest of your party.

The sex offender list really ought to be revamped. I don't see why someone who exposes themselves should be treated the same as a rapist. I still think it should exist. That Megan's Law story or whatever it's called is proof enough of that. Maybe the list should just be for violent sexual crimes though. I don't know. I'm no lawman.

Still I don't really think the principal should be forced to resign entirely over this issue. I don't necessarily agree with his actions, though I believe they are totally understandable given his position, and I have no doubt that if he'd known the kid would kill himself, he never would have reacted so strongly. I bet he feels like shit right about now. Language like "directly resulted in the teens death" is hyperbolic nonsense though, this is exactly the opposite of direct. I understand they're upset about the death of a child, and they want to accomplish something to get rid of this terrible feeling, but demonizing a principal who only did his job isn't going to help anybody. The kid did it to himself, and honestly if he was willing to commit suicide over the mere suggestion of these consequences, there was probably some sort of mental issue there to begin with.

@rorie: I think you guys are killing it on premium content and have been for a while. I'm dying to get paid so I can watch Pathfinder 2. When I said "worth it" I meant it from the perspective of his finances, rather than the perspective of how much you guys actually put out, because as he said, he has no income.

I don't really think setting a game in America helps with sales at all. I can't recall a time where the marketing of a game really played up the American setting. Maybe something like GTA does a little bit.

For me this is the same as the women in games argument, if a developer wants to make a game that's set outside of America with non american characters, that's cool. If they want to make a game in America with Americans, that's cool too. I do feel like we get a little more diversity than you seem to suggest though. Video games pretty frequently have us traipsing across Earth to journey through ancient forgotten civilizations, and unexplored environmental anomalies. A large portion of games aren't even set on earth, most fantasy games exist in a fictional world, and usually the basis of these worlds is decidedly European.
