The rise of 3D printing would also make the use of old shells only for nostalgic reasons. One can manufacture a shell in any novelty design, as long as the business end of the cartridge lines up with the slot, and do so very inexpensively. If you use the right materials, (Like ABS), you can even make it smooth and shiny. (see also, vapor smoothing.)

I suppose that with certain sports titles, you also get the NVRAM chip and battery, as long as the NVRAM is suitably sized...  That means programmed eeprom replacements on the game's PCB would be a thing.

Outside of selling DeJap'ed RGP titles that never got sold in some markets as bootlegs, I would think that the best economy is still one of those super piracy/developer carts though. The kind that have a full FPGA in them attached to the cartridge bus, and can do ANY title, even those with special CPUs.

But that's a dangerous flirtation with ban-worthy territory.


Hypothetically speaking, even somebody that owned such a cart might find them a poor substitute for owning an actual cartridge of the desired games, either for practical reasons or because collecting is more than just being able to play the game.

Apart from that, the use of the circuit boards is a solid enough point, but the fact remains that the bundle in question overcharges for the cartridges in question.

You know... I wonder if the main character from Mass Effect is supposed to be Jesus.

Metaphorically, or like The Man from Earth?

Metaphorically.

I mean his name is Biblical... and he did come back to life... and he is the savior of the galaxy...

And he gathers 12 disciples in 2. I'm pretty sure the symbolism was intentional.

Make sure to remove all of it. Festering splinters can be a real pain.

Temperature? Live with 80-90% humidity and then come talk.  :P
I do, as a matter of fact.
Then it's solidarity against the fuckin' weather.

Hey, you don't know their circumstances.

For all you know these are the most perfect parents on the planet with radiant holy auras.

It sounds like you guys live in literal hell. It's 30c and like 50% humidity here and I'm fucking dying. I need a nice 10-20c to stay comfortable. I think I'd literally die in 50c.

I think though, that I know Eric's circumstances to some degree.

Or at least, that those circumstances included screaming children in public.

Yep that is certainly the danger zone.

However, I heard the chanting of screaming children can lower the temperature.

I never understood why human sacrifice is generally a child or young woman. Why not sacrifice an aged person? At least that way they (at least feel like they) achieved something in their life.
