About Speak-Up on Kotaku: Our readers have a lot to say, and sometimes what they have to say has nothing to do with the stories we run. That's why we have that little box on the front page of Kotaku. You know, the one with "Got something to say?" written in it? That's the place to post anecdotes, photos, game tips and hints, and anything you want to share with Kotaku at large. Just make sure to include #speakup in your comment so we can find it. Every Wednesday or so we'll pull the best #speakup posts we can find and highlight them here.
Cry For Argentina
Open letter to game publishers:
I live in Argentina, we have no anti-game laws in here (I think they banned rape games but that doesn't count), no restrictions.
Still, you somehow tend to decide to block games in my area.
May I ask you to stop?
I can understand games being blocked from Steam (the only digital distribution site apart from GoG.com smart enough to sell games to places other than NA) in regions where you want to sell retail copies, but we have no retail games in here (only console imports, and I'm a PC gamer).
Seriously, there's a world out there, people in third world countries like this do buy games and you have nothing to loose if you allow digital distribution. So why block them?
I would appreciate if Kotaku helps spread this message, the new Transformers game just got released and I'm pissed to find out that I cant buy it for no reason other than some random guy decided to ignore the fact that I exist, and even worst, they decided to ignore my money.
More F-Zero Please
Mommy, I want one of these on the 3DS!
Seriously, though — I'd love to see a new entry in the F-Zero racing series, though I'm not sure if I'd rather see it on the Wii or the 3DS. I honestly want to buy a 3DS more than I want a Wii, but that's just me.
Regardless of which system it's on (which would you all prefer?), I'd love to see it support online play for a bunch of players at once (even four players wouldn't be bad with twenty-six bots, but hey, the more people they can support at once ...).
Thought you guys might like my latest picture :)
Well I do at least. Can't speak for everyone else.
Requiem for a Dead 60GB PlayStation 3
My 60GB launch PS3 just died (YLOD) on me today. It was 4 years and 5 months old. It's last game was a free roam session of Red Dead Redemption. It and the backward compatibility of PS2 games shall be sorely missed.
By the way, anyone else's lauch 60GB is still kicking? I saw all these posts online about the YLOD a while back and I thought mine was outliving a lot of people.....until today.
