THE RUNDOWN

  • Microsoft going away from space points, Mass Effect 3 has a new trailer multiplayer available to watch, some good points about bandwidth in a digital word, BlizzCon not happening in 2012, and finally a look back at Paper Mario!
  • Plus, we talk about what we’re playing, take your calls, and more!

THE BIG TALK

Best, the best. There is nothing else to say! Buy cheap kamagra! Our company is a professionally managed distributor of generic drugs.
  • Are Microsoft Points going away by the end of the year?
  • Mass Effect 3: Special Forces Trailer (Multiplayer mode)
  • What sort of impact will bandwidth restrictions on ISP’s have in the new digital only world?
  • There will be no BlizzCon in 2012. However, Nerdtacular is still happening!!

OLD SCHOOL

  • Paper Mario – Nintendo 64
    • “Paper Mario, known in Japan as Mario Story, (originally known as Super Mario RPG 2) is a role-playing video game developed by Intelligent Systems and published by Nintendo for the Nintendo 64 game console. It was first released in Japan on August 11, 2000, in North America on February 5, 2001, and in Europe and Australia on October 5, 2001. Paper Mario was re-released for Nintendo’s Virtual Console in 2007.
      Paper Mario is set in the Mushroom Kingdom as the protagonist Mario tries to rescue Princess Peach from Bowser. To do so, he must locate seven “Star Spirits” to negate the effects of the captured Star Rod, which grants invincibility to Bowser. The player controls Mario and a number of partners to solve puzzles in the game’s overworld and defeat enemies in a turn-based battle system. The battles are unique in that the player can influence the effectiveness of attacks by performing required controller inputs known as “action commands”.
      Paper Mario is the first installment for the Paper Mario series and is the predecessor to the GameCube game Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, the Wii game Super Paper Mario, and the upcoming 3DS game Paper Mario. The game received a positive reaction from the media, attaining an aggregate score of 88% from Game Rankings and 93% from Metacritic. It was rated the 63rd best game made on a Nintendo system in Nintendo Power’s “Top 200 Games” list in 2006.
      It was first of the post-SNES Mario games not to feature the voice-acting of Charles Martinet.”

  1. I hate microsoft points too! But I think the reason for them has more to do with the localization of the Xbox Live Dashboard than some shady point shaving. It’s easier to develop for and support an application that uses a single currency (microsoft points in the case of the dashboard) than one that supports the actual currencies for every country the application is used.

    So for example the dashboard says the cost of the item is 1200 points everywhere.. instead of $15.00 US or ¥ 1150.20 japanese yen or whatever country needs to be displayed.
