Re: Pokémon Black & White

Misty has long been replaced by Dawn..who quite frankly is a way better character then Misty ever was. Ash is still terrible though..

My god it is freaking Scary that I know that and have made that judgement. :shock:

Re: [Multi-Plat] Has SE finally hit rock bottom?

Oh don't worry Fiye, it isn't a hate for XIII that is driving the concern. It is the hate of X-2 and how utterly terrible it was. I honestly felt XIII was one of the best they have done in years. My major issues with a direct sequel are as follows; 1) A Direct sequel honestly sets them up for disast...

I am pretty sure that is purposeful at this point, MS hates mozilla. That said the current version of Firefox runs about as well as a virus and I am a long time supporter of it.

I am not opposed to a sequel due to not liking XIII, actually I thought it was one of the better FF games in a long time.

Right, we have known about PSN for quite a long time now. The difference being is that PSN sells extras for that subscription fee.

What? Why would people cancel if it turns free? If anything more people would sign up. Microsoft provides a service, it's not unreasonable to expect to pay for said service.
