I think I'm fine with a piece that describes the reaction to the Nintendo statement (which this was) rather than the article that speaks to artefacts of the past. While it's sometimes interesting to know how the sausage gets made it's the cooked and prepared version you want most.
You still get kicked off if you're playing a game and the "family" member logs in. That means it's great for households with a single computer but don't bother trying to log in with multiple systems at once.
Am I one of the only two people ever who played Warhammer 40,000: Chaos Gate? Because that was probably one of the better X-Com clones out there. If you're a fan of the old games but want a chance in hell of winning without resorting to game guides try it out. It's pretty solid.
