If this doesn't allow you to look at your TV and 'hack' it to change the channel, I'll be very disappointed. That said, I wonder if it'll include the tablet (2nd screen) game where you chased people around in a top down helicopter and tried to stop them from racing through the city. It would work perfectly on the gamepad. Also I wonder if the drinking game will be moved to touch based, because we all loved trying to do that activity with our analog sticks.

Nintendo has learned nothing from the Wii-U and the branding problems the company faces in the West. It's hard enough for me to swallow that my Pikachu 3DSXL (with camera nipples) is going to be outdated by another system less than 1 year after it came out, but to then call it 'New 3DS' and some games will only work with 'New 3DS'... Yeah, I'm going to have parents cursing me out next year at my store, I just know it. They really need to figure their shit out, because all of those new people that were brought into gaming with the Wii and the 3DS are going to either give up on Nintendo or give up on gaming entirely out of frustration. If you're going to change system specs, then change the name of your system. Trying to build '3DS' and 'Wii' up as evolving brands just confuses folks.

This is a new one even for me. I was watching Metal Gear Scanlon - Part 01 and went to pause the video. I clicked the pause button with my mouse and the video started stuttering. It eventually stopped, but when I went to resume the video, it was stuck in a pause / unpause loop. Pressing spacebar appears to function properly.

Windows 8 x64
Firefox 31.0
Flash version: 14.0.0.17
Running ATI Crossfire on tri monitor (might matter, because I multitask so much?)

I'm not even sure if you guys can fix it, my impression was this was more a problem with Flash than the video player. But I figured I'd post it for ya guys anyways. Haven't run into this issue with any other flash video players and it was repeatable on my side.

@master1xander: Go into your Billing: https://auth.giantbomb.com/account/ and check the Billing History. It will tell you the billing dates there.

O man that ending.

I wish my brain would just like him already. It's like the bridges in Donkey Kong Country 2, I keep coming up, pay the toll but then something happens and it turns into a sadistic version of Papers Please where they stamp my passport to let me in but then shoot me as soon as I cross the border. I keep telling myself, 'He ain't so bad, he's a funny guy.' and then something new pops up and it's like DUDE! WHY DO YOU HATE OAK TREES? (I'm assuming this will be the next thing that he hates) He's a good guy, I just wish my brain would stop being so picky about him.

Well on account of everything is 3D rendered (I'm fairly sure I saw a demo, once upon a time in a mystical venue, where they showed that Dota 2 could work with any camera angle, but I could totally be crazy), technically it can all be in the same engine. Would be pretty kickass to mix Counter Strike with Dota... FPS Dota, just saying... Yeah, you're probably right, that's a terrible idea.

@cornbredx: I only remember a handful of things from EtM, but I remember an airplane hangar full of Smiths that would randomly break like something you'd see in Gary's Mod today. It was amazing fun to futz around with. I seem to remember they tried to recreate the highway scene too and that level was near impossible to play half the time. Far from a great game but still one of my favorite memories.

@corruptedevil: If you liked Path of Neo you would most likely love Enter The Matrix. PoN seemed a bit of a back step when it was released, like they were trying to shell media out just for the sake of possibly hitting gold. I like PoN, don't get me wrong, but they played it crazy safe and sadly it didn't pan out to be a great game, where as EtM they went crazy ambitious and things went hangwire in places, causing it to be hit and miss with a majority of their audience.

If you want to try playing it, I suggest trying to hunt down the PC version, while it's probably the most broken, it's also the only version that seemed to work without having to lose crazy amounts of progress. The console versions had game breaking bugs that would cause you to restart the entire game to get past.

@notdavid: Right? The music and sound effects are kinda garbage but the machine itself is sort of beautiful, atleast to me. I would kill just to have it sitting in my living room, even turned off.

@fisk0: Meh, the other two had their place. Sure they jumped the shark big time and retconned some really weird shit. But Smith taking over the Matrix, program by program, was actually a fairly good representation of how a virus infects a system, though at a much slower rate. Not to mention Matrix Reloaded still has some of the best scripted fight scenes ever. The biggest bummer to me was when they started the whole, 'fighting in the real world, while you fight in the Matrix.' The whole robots storyline seemed dumb and tacked on. The first movie barely made mention to it and then the other two movies were almost obsessive about it. Seeing anime characters in a Matrix game though... Eh.... I think that tops those other two movies.

@davidwitten22: Yeah, I was one of the weird people who really liked it too. I loved the ideas they had behind it, showing scenes that were happening at the same time as the movie. Plus I actually found the gameplay really satisfying.

Could be a billing issue or the renew setting got screwed up with the few hiccups the site has had. Not sure if they did any tinkering to billing when the Heartbleed shit hit the fan. From my experience it could also be your bank, sometimes they'll block a renewal request randomly if their fraud system freaks out.
