@kmfrob:

Putting Pikmin in the same category as those other games shows how little you know about it. It's a real-time strategy game. The part you mistook for "busy work" is resource-gathering, which is something you must do in just about every RTS.

What a stupid, anti-consumer slant you put on this Austin. As someone who owns a large collection of games, I almost never trade stuff in. But I like owning a physical copy because I can lend a game to a friend, and if I ever decide to sell it, I can recoup some of my investment (or even make money down the road, as several games I own are now worth more than I paid for them). I can't do that with a digital download. And what happens when a service ends, or a game download is tied to a specific console like Nintendo has been doing?

I hope more retailers push back against digital code pack-ins. I feel like most of us would prefer having a physical copy for the reasons I stated, and this notion that all-digital is an inevitability is nauseating to me. (By the way, I can buy physical copies of games without ever leaving the house, often with free delivery, through Amazon thank you very much -- there is very little reason to go digital)

Well, the Wii U is clearly not Nintendo's focus any more. I hope they at least announce something like a translation for Dragon Quest VII 3DS to tide people over.

Ars Technica thinks the PS4 may be outselling the Bone by 2-to-1, so it makes sense Microsoft is getting desperate.

I've noticed over the past few months a lot of NeoGAF topics becoming Patrick news "stories". Might want to cut down on this kind of thing... at least when it comes to nonsense "articles" like this one, Patrick. Just sayin.

" A millionaire would have a nicer game room "
That's because he's currently in the process of building an extension on his house specifically for his games.

I just came across this guy and he's got a pretty sweet YouTube game review show starting out.  He has less than 1,000 subscribers right now and has only done a few episodes, but they're well done.  He shows off pretty much every version of the game he is reviewing.
Check it out:
Gradius

Ghosts n Goblins
 
Afterburner
 
He must be a millionaire, check out his game room - in one of his videos he says the power company had to modify his line because his arcades were draining too much electricity!  He also mentions he has multiple copies of Radiant Silvergun (Saturn).  That's one of the most rare videogames in existence.  Just crazy...

@JoeyRavn: 
 
It really comes down to how much money you want to spend.  Check out your local printing stores, some have the ability to print digital files onto a variety of material including canvas or photo paper.  I've had a piece of similar size printed onto photo paper (which supposedly lasts 100+ years) for around $80.  Printing onto canvas is a little more expensive.

@DarthOniXVIII:  Take a photo and post it!  I'd love to see how it looks in your place.
