Actually, Mike, I didn't call you an asshole because I don't think it's appropriate to be personally insulting in that way. I think your comments about me are more boorish than any I've made in...

I don't think I've insulted anyone in this thread -- at least, I haven't called anyone an "asshole" or a "dick."

If people take offense because they disagree with me, or because I hurt their...

Is this really true of, for example, Dance Dance Revolution?

Hey, way to be gamier-than-thou, Mike! You sure are one hardcore gamer, man. I bet in the mid 1980s you talked about how GUIs were for people who couldn't handle all the raw power of the command...

I play lots of board games.

I think you're right in identifying this as a good compromise.

Enduro and Mike -- you're totally wrong. It in no way adds to the "challenge" of a title to prevent me from being able to checkpoint...

In the year 2003 there is absolutely no excuse for not allowing players to arbitrarily save their game at any point. It's just pathetically sloppy and arrogant game design to do anything else in a...

Isn't that kind of like...stealing?

I mean, I'm just sayin'. Ethically, I think if you're going to return the unit you should be returning everything that comes with it.
