If they do stop making disks, can I get decorative faux video game cases to put on my shelves? I want to look more distinguished.

No, I didn't notice that I could go there.

I'm not even sure I got the emblem. I played during the specified time, and it popped up a message like "Play the beta during this time to get an emblem thing!" but I don't think it directly confirmed that I got it.

I'm thinking about a concept page for games where you can move a mouse-like cursor around freely, but the game cannot be played with a mouse (or is not designed to be). You usually see this in menus, a recent example being the Destiny beta.

Just to make sure this is a good idea and the page won't be deleted, what do you all think about it? And is there a better name than "Cursor on a Console"?

how does this work with Wii and Kinect games where you're controlling a cursor in the same way but via motion controls. Do all of these apply?

I think that counts. Not all Wii or Kinect games have it, so it's not inherent to the control scheme like on PC.

I think I liked the Mako better than scanning, so that's okay.

The Mako would have been a good part of ME1 if there had been 1/2 as many Mako sequences and 2x the density of interesting things to find on the planet surfaces.

What is with all these new accounts bumping old shit?

As PC Gamer notes, an image in the teaser email has the filename "ShadowRealms_Teaser_video.jpg." and that's not the first time the name's popped up tied to EA. In February the company filed a trademark for it, and in March it registered a ton of domains including the name, such as "," "" and "" - a free-to-play MMO is the obvious leap to make.

So yeah.

Dragon Quest VIII.

This is true. Several JRPGs have this because they were localized for Europe first.

Looks like very calculated nonsense cooked up by ad agency people.

Meanwhile the actual game is about magic future samurai or something.

Timothy Blood and Brian Strange are great lawyer names.
