But nor the terrorists!

ALSO

They say it's from a year ago, buuutttt....

1) They complain about people getting rich during the foreclosure crisis
2) They're kind of white, lower class looking people
3) They have a target in the middle of Time's Square.

Is the next Rainbow Six game going to be about putting down OWS?

A year ago it very well could have been about putting down the Tea Party.

It's Rainbow fucking Six though, so I'm guessing no.

Oh yeah, forgot about that. The Tea Party was angry at the banks, too, up until the lefties started getting in on the rage, then it stopped being cool.

Less of general interest, Microsoft Flight Simulator is being resurrected, and while it's now called Microsoft Flight, it does still appear to be a simulator. There's to be some sort of open beta starting next month.

I wasn't aware it had gone away.  I have a cousin who's been taking pilot lessons for years and I'm pretty sure he's got a copy, with a serious, expensive, no-fuckin'-around flightstick peripheral.

Trey Parker and Matt Stone are making a South Park game. With Obsidian.

It's going to be an RPG with a Paper Mario styled battle system. And a Materia-like system for augmenting weapons.

What the fuck is this that I'm feeling.

Except it won't be entertaining. Or funny.
Or have any redeeming qualities.

Despite the rather irresponsible headline, Shigeru Miyamoto is not retiring. Read the entire article and then seek shelter from the tidal wave of internet stupidity that is bound to result.

Sounds an awful lot like good news to me.  Miyamoto ditching the big-budget franchises in favor of simpler pet projects?  Sign me the hell up.

It's kind of hard to use a nice moderate article title when the man himself keeps throwing around the 'R' word.

Kohler did change the title to "stepping down" pretty soon after posting that article... though I guess the damage had been done.

It's kind of hard to use a nice moderate article title when the man himself keeps throwing around something that his interpreter translates as the 'R' word.

He wasn't actually speaking English, you know.  It's entirely possible that the word he was actually using doesn't directly translate.

Or it could just be that he thought his repeated clarifications would be enough to prevent the American press from taking his remarks out of context for the sake of a provocative headline.  Haha, silly foreigners.

Turns out there are different words for "step down from current position" and "retire altogether" that both use the character for "to retire" (tai).  So yeah, "step down" is probably what he was saying, and it only got half-translated in the rush to be first to report.
