Movies, Shows & Books / Edinburgh Festival

Anyone at the festival? What have you seen? What are you going to see?
I have just ended up here by chance with no real clue.

Nintendo has pulled all UK retail copies of the Mario Party 8 game for the Wii, due the appearance of the word ‘spastic’ in the translation. The official information refers to the appearance of an offensive word:

"Unfortunately we have discovered that a small number of games contain the wrong version of the disk due to an assembly error," reads a statement from the company.

According to the good folk at Spong, the offensive word is contained in this sentence:

“Magikoopa magic! Turn the train spastic! Make this ticket tragic!”

Overkill? I understand why the kid-oriented game would make family-friendly Nintendo want to stay clean but it’s hardly up there with the Hot Coffee fiasco or the recent Manhunt 2 ban, now is it?

Of course, maybe Nintendo has learned from Sony’s mishandling over the Manchester Cathedral spat that the best thing to do is to act fast, over-react if necessary and take the financial hit before the media has a field day and Tony Blair weighs-in on the topic.-Martin Lynch

General / Can mime beat crime?
« on: July 04, 2007, 09:17:09 pm »

In an attempt to reclaim public parks and other urban danger zones for its upright rather than horizontal citizenry, the city of Seattle has hit upon a neat solution. It's paying buskers to perform there in the hope that an atmosphere of civic jollity will ensue, criminals will abandon their leafy hideouts and shadowy rookeries, and levity, decency and joie de vivre will flow back to these once grand killing fields. The fact that it might push up property prices for a big sell-off, put bearded hula-hoop-twirling Bob Dylan impersonators in the line of stray bullets and keep the main shopping streets clear of tap dancers at lunchtime has not been mentioned.

Sounds like good times

I have a Belkin Mimo wireless modem and it keeps on stopping working and we have to unplug the power and plug it back in and it works again, then it works for a bit and then stops again.
