For all the money gaming makes the US, the US sure seems to hate gaming.

    I was about to boast that we can buy more copies of Canadian-made-disaster-3 with dollars than with loonies, but then decided to look up the current exchange rate: the US is, objectively, in the pooper.


    Pooper.

    I don't know what cigarettes are like in the States, but up here in Canada the warning label also includes pictures of diseased lungs, blackened teeth and deformed fetuses. Let's take this video game label all the way; have Barbie's Horse Adventures with a picture of uzi-toting 5 year old shooting up her preschool. It will be glorious.

    They just need to put a big label on everything that states "This is potentially bad for you. Consume in moderation."

    They are known to cause enraged nerds to flush forum threads down the pooper.

    Graham should talk about Mass Effect in every single episode.

    It should have a screenshot of the WoW official forums on it too.

    Or would that be too upsetting?

    A browser based version of Pokemon that runs even on iOS and Andriod (ala browserquest) could be a Trojan horse that gets people to play decades old ports of Pokemon while charging up the wazzu for rare candy (without having to loose a penny to Google or Apple). But even if they considered the browser as a platform, knowing Nintendo, I wouldn't get your hopes up for "multiplayer."

    I think exposing someone to the official WoW forums without explicit consent might be unconstitutional. At any rate, it would be more damaging than the product itself.

    Maybe a warning label warning label...
