  1. Amazon has done stuff like that before. Remember Daemon X Machina? Amazon cancelled preorders for that game, a cancellation which cancelled out the old 20% Amazon Prime discount on pre-ordered video games. Amazon Prime used to offer a 20 percent off discount on preordered video games, but between Daemon X Machina's announcement and release, they eliminated it. So, in the case of that game, cancelling the preorders meant those who opted to reorder through Amazon would have to pay full price, rather than at 20% off. I just read it as a corporation trying to squeeze a f
  2. First, we are updated through this post. Second, let's let you know what January's Challenge Game is!
  3. I believe I have fixed the link matter, also we are updated through this post.
  4. Though it only recently concluded, the show did debut in 2007. To put that in perspective, it predates Groupon, the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Team Fortress 2 and the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, to name a few things.
  5. I do hope the Barenaked Ladies got a nice paycheck for the Big Bang Theory theme.
  6. Console: 1 Handheld: 0 PC: 0 Mobile: 0 Overall: 1
  7. Welcome to Video Games Finished in 2021! New year, new thread! We've been here before, but if you haven't? This is easy peasy. You keep a running tally of the video games you beat over the course of 2021, and post your completions in the thread! Feel free to join us, whether you're new or old. Let's see if we can top our collective tally of 420 video games beaten in 2020 this year! GAMES BEATEN: When you beat a game, post the name and the system. That’s it. We are going by the honor system here. Line them up and knock them down, and let us kn
  8. Counting the Lost Levels and the 34 games dropped by ArmoredFrog, we beat a combined 420 games in 2020! Please, insert your own joke here! With that said, that number is in flux. @Tyranogre: if the disc is broken and you can't replay/beat the final boss, I have no issue adding that to your 2020 total. If the disc is still usable and you can finish the final boss now, I'm fine counting that as a 2021 beat. In addition, if there are any late additions to your 2020 totals, let me know and I'll update the first post accordingly. Which actually does bring us to 2021: we ca
  9. Guess what? It’s the last day of 2020, so if you have any last second game completions, be sure to post them!
  10. You're not the only one. I don't remember the user, so my first thought upon seeing the username was the video game.
  11. Yes and no. From 1988 to 2003, Section 28 was in effect in the UK. This stated a local authority "shall not intentionally promote homosexuality or publish material with the intention of promoting homosexuality.” This would include libraries or schools. With that said, Half Blood Prince and Deathly Hallows came out after the repeal. In addition, other UK authors (such as Philip Pullman and Neil Gaiman) wrote LGBT+ characters during that time.
  12. Most definitely. Some parts of Harry Potter simply haven’t aged well, others are far worse in hindsight given her interviews. Dumbledore is also an example of retroactive representation. Some creators are far better at discussing representation in post, rather than including said representation in their book/movie/show. It’s very easy to say a character is gay after the fact. It’s better to show a character is gay in the work rather than tell us years later.
  13. And on that, we disagree. I see crediting Hatsune Miku as absolving the creators rather than discrediting them, albeit accidentally. They’re not responsible for their work, after all. Rowling, for example, deserves credit for Harry Potter and all the problematic stuff within, not Hatsune Miku. Using just one example, Hatsune Miku didn’t create a werewolf that targets children and then say in interviews that lycanthropy is a metaphor for HIV/AIDS, Rowling did. I know it’s a meme, I just see it as questionable one given it’s unintentional implications.
