    Why can't Home Improvement: Power Tool Pursuit! be ported to the Xperia Play? it'd cost like 5 dollars - I know because someone told me they saw someone pay another kid 5 dollars for a copy of the game that he thought he heard someone mention that can run on a Game dot Com and that's like way weaker than a Nokia N-gage so like it'd totally run on an Xperia Play, right?

    Xperia Play has a wide userbase of like 10 people and that's like 50 dollars in sales if 100% of the userbase buys it and that's like 45 more dollars than they need to port the game

    Or why not the Wonderswan? That has an install base of 20 and that's huge money, like 20 times more money than I have right now



    Actually, to get real for a second, how amazing was the Wonderswan? In a period where the Gameboy didn't release the Color model and the only other portable rival was the Neogeo Pocket, the Wonderswan came out for $50 and only needing a single AA battery and was both equally or more powerful than the NGP and nearly comparable to the GBC (minus color). It had a million interesting games including music titles, puzzlers, platformers, RPGs, simulations, shmups, indie-development kits, communication
    w/ the PS1, and a billion anime licenses, could be played both horizontally and vertically or for left handed or right handed players, and it was way cheaper in general than the Gameboy overall.

    If it was released in the West, I feel like it could've done okay in that time period. Well, if they had some kind of Pokemon-killer, it'd have helped.

    Anyway

    Why isnt Marie playable like she's in the game as a boss (also she's super hard and broken wtf! fix plys labzero i cant beat her) so like i know labzero only asked help to fund one more dlc character and I KNOW they all took a paycut to try and help the IGG succeed but i got like 5 more characters than i was expecting so like in reality, why shouldnt i get 6 characters???! its basically the same right. Like thats what i want so i should get it? Also she already has some animations so they only need to draw like a couple more things so that would be like 5$ right? Also if we had Marie then we could tap into 100% of the Japanese playerbase because everyone in Japan loves Marie because everyone in Japan is a maid. Think about it, charge £4 for Marie but like to the whole of Japan thats like a thousand Yen! Really if they dont do this then they are just lazy and stupid it would make so much money but mostly i want it for some reason. ALso i know they would need to draw new art for her story mode but tbh they could do that for free because the artists still get exposure.

    Mods, plz ban chillybeans for talking about some game with skulls in it in this off topic forum


    also, how about that http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TurboExpress
    374px-TurboExpress-Front.jpg

    "Its launch price in the U.S. was $249.99. The price was briefly raised to $299.99, soon dropped back to $249.99, and by 1992 it was $199.99."

    For comparison, the SNES launched in 1991 for $199. $249 back then is equal to $429.12 now.

    So crazy.

    I just like how all the old stuff looked like they were built to be indestructible. I was a sad sega game gear owner. That thing sucked hard..... oh yeah battery life even for back then was god awful.

    Per tradition, I, who have nothing to do with the topic, must answer calm logic with irrational rambling. Here's my unqualified opinion:

    I once played Home Improvement: Oh No, I Killed Wilson! on a Dreamcast in a Kentucky GameStop and I thought, hey, if it can port to the Sega Game Gear, it can definitely port to the OUYA. Did you know most households have electricity? OUYA runs on electricity, guys. That's a 100% market overlap. Tim Allen is blind fool for not taking advantage of that install base.

    hooray for satire :o

    GGPO is a terrible netcode, Street Fighter x Tekken used something like that and it sucked, and also it doesn't work with 3D models and it makes the game look bad, why would you ever use it.
