@Thanatos2k: Oh I know that, overall, the pharma companies have done a lot of good for people. Diseases have been eradicated over the last 50 years, people are living longer lives, help is there for people who need it. I'm just saying I know a lot of companies out there are worse than just some game company, is all.

@cboye18: It's true that it costs immense amounts of money for drug development, testing, and so on, but this goes beyond trying to make more income for such things. Marking up medication to $750 a pill when one needs multiple pills to fight off the infection is going to simply be a death sentence for many.

The public generally doesn't have thousands of dollars to drop for medication when needed.

@_plaguelight_: Oh people everywhere in the U.S. comment about such things. Hell, I've been in and out of hospitals for a time, and it was insane.

Even recently, when I felt an ear infection coming on, (I'm a bit prone to them), I contacted my doctor saying it's happening again, I don't need a checkup, just send the Rx in. They were like sure.

When my roommate went to pick it up for me on his way home from work, turns out that my insurance, for some reason, wouldn't cover it. And it would be $190. For antibiotics.

Thankfully the infection cleared up before getting serious, because I told him screw it: it was already feeling better at the time.

Still, if I had needed it..ugh.

@GarGx1: I find it ridiculous as well when gamers take polls on 'worst company' and it's a video game company. It's like they have no idea what is going on in the world outside of their screens. It's sad, practically pathetic, really.

@ad1x2: Oh, he had me and others helping him out. So he got one and one of his friends also got one. I would have been the third, and there was no need for a third, so back to the pool it goes for someone else.

@ad1x2: Yeah, I got mine in, my roommate wanted her so I was trying to get it to help him out; but, when I told him I got the order in, he said he already got two, so I'm cancelling my order. Let someone else who wants her get her.

@fanboyman: Apparently not considering as soon as 2 PM hit the page was getting errors left and right. Oy.

@fig56: Someone on Gamespot who understands that a business wants to make money as much as possible?!
And these amiibos were a great idea for Nintendo as they're a license to print money. And for consumers it's like having multiple DLCs/unlockables for games all at once, which isn't a bad thing. The only really big stress point is not having enough to go around right away.

Uugh. Really. Is anyone else sick of that shit by now or is it just me.

I've never been a huge Batman fan. Sure I've watched it growing up and whatnot, but that's about it. Never read the comics or anythin'. That said, holy shit that is one awful-looking Joker. The tats were bad enough, but fucking grills? He looks like a gang member trying to prove he's just so crazy and insane by getting tattoos along those lines as it is without the ridiculous grill action.

Plus the Joker's always had a bit of class about him. A certain je ne sais quoi. Grills are in the opposite direction of that.
