Nintendo Puts a Bedtime On Wii U Content In Europe

HexRei Re:WHY? (190 comments)

Yeah, because the half hour difference between 10:30pm and 11pm would just ruin you.

Of course, you could always try getting up earlier in the morning, and catch the store before it closes.

It's still stupid, and based on the bizarre idea that kids won't have access to their console during that period. How bout asking parents to lock down their credit cards a little more tightly?

Crysis 2 Most Pirated Game of 2011

HexRei OP conclusion ignores motive (383 comments)

The fact that it was a leaked early release is the reason for the mass downloading numbers, not weak DRM or growing numbers of pirates. I mean come the fuck on- even people who typically or ALWAYS purchase their games would have been interested in this release, who wouldn't want a chance to play a game before it even hits shelves?

Running Your Own Ghost Investigation?

HexRei Re:Alchemy (810 comments)

Yes, but when people talk about it today they are basically talking about magic. I know pagans who claim to be alchemists and they know shit-all about chemistry.

Octopuses Have No Personalities and Enjoy HDTV

HexRei Re:Sounds like... (482 comments)

Not really. You weren't conducting a controlled study and you had strong emotional attachment to your relatively tiny (1/16 the size) sample group of a different type of octopus. Like I said, her evidence seems stronger.

Octopuses Have No Personalities and Enjoy HDTV

HexRei Re:Sounds like... (482 comments)

No it doesn't. His evidence is weak and unscientific, that's why it's called anecdotal.

Octopuses Have No Personalities and Enjoy HDTV

HexRei Re:Personality (482 comments)

She was using Octopus tetricus. Study involved Octopus rubescens- perhaps this also accounts for the disparity.

Octopuses Have No Personalities and Enjoy HDTV

HexRei Re:Sounds like... (482 comments)

While we are all entitled to state our opinions, I'd tend to value a scientific study involving 32 subjects over your two-subject anecdotal observation of pets.

That doesn't mean your wrong, but her evidence seems stronger.

Charity Refuses Donation Because of D&D Connection

HexRei Re:Advanced Bad & Summary (216 comments)

This is doublespeak. One moment they are worried they might be seen to "endorse or support" the gaming convention- next they are simply blaming it on their lack of involvement. Which is the truth? Do they truly only accept donations from organizations with which they are "involved"? Let's face it- they don't condone gaming or gaming conventions, to the degree they are afraid to accept donations from them. That shows serious bias no matter that ridiculous self-contradictory disclaimer.
