is it just me, or is the quote from the Gamestop CEO incredibly obvious? What digital revenues does gamestop even have? They sell codes for downloads in their stores and, I assume, online. Online sales require a credit card. If a customer is already online and has a credit card, they are, under most circumstances,… » 7/19/14 11:04am 7/19/14 11:04am

all of the various game news sites that existed before IGN gobbled them up. PSNonline was one of my daily visits until IGN acquired them in the late 90's. POTF TOO was a really funny comic strip site using the 90's Star Wars action figures. I think they stopped updating that by 1999 or 2000. In the early 2000's,… » 7/13/14 9:08am 7/13/14 9:08am

I remember when the RZR came out, but I was already rocking the tmobile Sidekick. The sidekick had so many more features and I couldn't imagine giving up the keyboard. In hind site, the sidekick's browser could barely render a real website (and there were NO mobile sites). The only thing that was excellent on the… » 7/02/14 8:40pm 7/02/14 8:40pm

Nintendo desperately needs someone on their Japanese staff to champion user experience. It's painfully obvious in their consoles and games that it's not a priority. I love their systems and games (flaws and all) but they could REALLY improve in this area. Bad UI choices, slow load times for seemingly small things,… » 5/26/14 11:26am 5/26/14 11:26am

Looks nice, but the flaw I see is (I think) most of time, users go to IMDB to do a search first. The search feature should be more prominent. It looks like the search box itself is buried behind a click- which is a pretty fatal flaw. Imagine if Youtube did that? As long as users can quickly and easily (read: without… » 3/17/14 3:20pm 3/17/14 3:20pm

I'm in the same boat as you. I actually did try a previous Elder Scrolls 10 years ago after all its hype. I never left the first village and gave up. Skyrim's hype got to me and I bought it.. I played it for probably 2 hours and was done. I can understand why some people might like it- but its too open for me. Every… » 2/19/14 7:33pm 2/19/14 7:33pm

I don't understand why they just don't make it so you can tie any smartphone Nintendo game purchase (classic games) to your Nintendo ID. Then, users can play them on any device as well as Wii U and 3DS. Seems like the smartest move Nintendo could make, because they could sell people a Mario game on their iPhone, but… » 1/29/14 10:42pm 1/29/14 10:42pm

The Chris Farley "Of Mice and Men" SNL skit. I think, because of his untimely death, it's been omitted from all collections because it involves him being killed at the end. It's probably not as funny as I remember, but I'd like to see it again, but I haven't ever found it anywhere. » 1/18/14 6:22pm 1/18/14 6:22pm

Animal Crossing, along with the 3DS and Wii U, are rife with odd user experience issues, too. I'm probably more prone to notice because I work in the Web industry, but it bugs me more and more. Not sure if it bothers anyone else though. For instance, having bathers review my fossils and then give him specific ones can… » 8/09/13 3:52pm 8/09/13 3:52pm
