Poll #57: "Do you know someone with a pet named after a video game character?" results, banner, and a logo for One Duck's Opinion

"Yes! In fact, it's my pet!" 5 votes (13%)
"Yes" 9 votes (25%)
"I don't think so" so 5 votes (13%)
"No" 13 votes (36%)
"I'm not sure" 4 votes (11%)

It's interesting to see just how much video games have affected our mindsets, even to the point of us naming living creatures after their characters. Nothing wrong with that, of course.

For this week's banner, I decided to do something new. Behold, everyone: The One Duck's Opinion logo! It seems like as good a time as any to get a logo for the blog, so here it is. Of course, this is nothing compared to the things some truly artistically talented people can do. Just something to replace the boring text that plagued every banner!

So then, that brings us to this week's poll: "Do you have a working NES?" Looking over at my game console-covered dresser and seeing my two NES (One works sometimes, the other never works), it made me wonder how many of you guys have functioning NES consoles. If only mine were more reliable, I'd actually be able to finish Dragon Warrior...

Well, tonight's article should be up later. Should be. I'm not sure, we'll just have to see.

The Duck Has Spoken.

You do know, that if you own the game, you may legally emulate it.

You already know what I think(See my blog) and I agree wholeheartedly that this isn't going to solve the problem.

I hope to have my copy of the game soon(I have to wait until my birthday at the end of the month) but it's tempting to crack the game(DRM/Spyware free!) -using my own registration keys-(in that case is it really cracking/pirating?)so I don't have to do all that nonsense or worry about spyware.
