There's a magnet on my fridge that reads "THOU SHALT NOT WHINE." More people really need to apply this 11th commandment to their daily lives. If they did, the world would be a much more pleasant (and quieter) place to live.

I'm still using XP on this computer that I'm typing from. I do plan on finally upgrading to Windows 7 this year, but that's it. After that, I'm sticking to it for as long as I can just like XP. I have no desire to relearn how to use my computer each time a new OS gets released, and frankly, I also have no desire to give Microsoft any more of my money for software that I consider to be second-rate. Windows 7 is nothing more than Vista revamped, and yet they still charge full price for it. What a ripoff. The only reason they get away with it is because there isn't any other real competition to challenge them and drive prices down.

I say who needs them? Having them on board would only taint Nintendo's positive image and drag them down with their garbage business practices. That's exactly the kind of competition they shouldn't be fraternizing with. Besides, once the next game crash hits, most of them won't survive anyway. There's no point attaching yourself to a sinking ship. (Just keep your engines set to full speed ahead and sail right past the S.S. Dudebro as it goes down to the bottom of the videogame abyss.)

Even if it was $10 I still wouldn't buy it. Ubisoft's half-ass support for the Wii U is unacceptable and I have no desire to support businesses that act in such a despicable manner. Any that do will be treated as if they have the plague.

The only games I would ever pre-order and pay full price for are Nintendo games (and certain Japanese titles like Conception II and Hyperdimension). Other than that, I wouldn't pay any more than $10 for this or any other overhyped, dudebro movie game with inflated production values and very little substance to show for it.

I frequent Breitbart on a daily basis, and am of Mexican descent, so your outlandish claim of them being xenophobes is blatantly false. That is nothing more than a smear. Either provide some concrete proof to back up your vitriol or retract it. Frankly, I find people like you to be no better than those in the mainstream gaming media who constantly spew lies to hurt Nintendo. You're both an enemy of the truth and thus no ally of mine.

Sony may not be financially bankrupt, but they sure are proving that they are on their way to becoming morally bankrupt, and that's never a good thing. It's things like this that make me hesitant to buy their products. Because how can you trust a company that has no problem putting out such blatant lies in order to deceive both their investors and customers? This is why I consider them and Microsoft to be second-rate businesses compared to Nintendo. (Sales don't mean a damn thing to me, because, in the end, no amount will save you from a lack of morals.) If Sony chooses to continue down this destructive path, it will eventually lead to their undoing, and they will deserve everything that happens to them.

Did you try to change the default option of store pickup to shipping when placing your order online? You can actually do that. On Sunday, I was able to successfully apply for the promotion, and today I just received an email saying that one of my two games (I bought Zelda: A Link Between Worlds and Bravely Default) has already been shipped out from the warehouse. Go and give it another try.

There is nothing in the U.S. Constitution that grants the Federal government power over the institution of marriage, therefore the Tenth Amendment applies automatically.

However, as for abortion, the argument couldn't be any simpler: Abortion blatantly infringes on an unborn child's right to life, and since the primary purpose of the Federal government is to protect our God-given rights, including the right to life, a ban is completely within their power and authority to impose on the Several states. One way the liberals try to get around this argument is to say that the unborn don't fully qualify as human beings during certain stages of development while inside the mother's womb, and therefore aren't protected under the Constitution. For some reason, if you call an unborn person a zygote, embryo or fetus instead of a child, this dehumanizes them enough where terminating their life through abortion becomes somehow more acceptable to society. It also reinforces the false notion that an unborn child is the merely the property of it's mother so long as it resides inside her belly, and that she can simply snuff out it's life if the prospect of giving birth and raising it suddenly becomes unappealing enough to her. This is of course complete nonsense. In the end, it doesn't matter what stage of development an unborn child is in; it's still a life regardless of what you choose to call it, and is entitled to the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness like everybody else. There is no other definition. Those who argue for abortion are no better than the ones who argued 150+ years ago that blacks weren't entitled to rights under the Constitution because they didn't qualify as full human beings. The only difference with abortion is that we're now talking about human beings that are still inside their mothers' wombs. (At least blacks had the ability to speak up and defend themselves somewhat, but the unborn couldn't be any more helpless and have to completely rely on us for the preservation of their lives so they can have the chance to be born and go on to pursue their definition of happiness.)
