Debt Collectors Using Facebook To Embarrass Those Who Owe

Arctic Dragon Re:Easy Solution (266 comments)

Of course, debt collectors never go after the wrong people and they never make mistakes. Wait until you get harassed by a debt collection agency for a debt you don't owe then let's see if you spew out the same 'advice.' And yes, it's happened to me. I eventually cleared my name but it was a pain in the ass.

Nintendo To Take On Piracy In 3-D

Arctic Dragon Re:The trend on Nintendo Consoles (249 comments)

But the shovelware titles are the best-selling. According to VGChartz.com, Imagine: Babyz and Imagine: Fashion Designer have each sold nearly 3 million copies each. Compare that to the sales of some of the highest-rated DS games:

Fire Emblem - Shadow Dragon: 480,000
Final Fantasy Tactics A2 - Grimoire of the Rift: 640,000
Castlevania - Dawn of Sorrow: 340,000

Store shelves are stocked with shovelware for one reason: they sell. Heck, for years people were whining about the lack of 'adult' games for the DS, then Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars (excellent game, BTW) was finally released. The game sold so poorly it's been ported to the iPhone and PSP to help recoup development costs.

The Final Fantasy IV DS remake only sold 1.04 million copies. If more people actually bought the quality DS titles, we would see more of them. Vote with your wallet!

Can Nintendo Really Be Planning Another DS Variant?

Arctic Dragon Re:DS Improvements a good thing (187 comments)

Agreed. I own a DS Lite as well as a 'slim' PSP, but despite it's inferior specs, I enjoy the DS more. The problem is, many people think the DS has nothing more than My Little Pony and Dora the Explorer games, but if you dig past the kiddy games and shovelware, the system has a fantastic library. You have the excellent 2D games (Mega Man ZX, New Super Mario Bros, the 3 Castlevanias and Contra 4), old-school RPGs (Final Fantasy, Dragon Quest, Dark Spire, Ys, Black Sigil, the upcoming new Golden Sun), puzzlers (Professor Layton), and so on.

If the story's title was "Major Windows 7 Bug Said To Delete User Data", the story would have 1000+ comments by now, most of them bashing Microsoft.

Bad Signs For Blu-ray

Arctic Dragon Re:$200? (1276 comments)

Hell, I paid $50 for a name brand (Phillips) region-free player, which also plays DixV and Xvid files. Plenty of value for 50 bucks.
