How would you feel if your online opponent was secretly a bot?

Yesterday I was playing Wii Sports Club Boxing online while contemplating stuff to talk about on this week's Sup Holmes. I thought I'd have a while to think, but I was wrong. I only had to wait like 3 seconds before I w...

But we're in an uncertain time, unsure of what the future might hold, which means we can still have hope that some of our favorite franchises might yet see life.

How can Microsoft sway public opinion of Xbox One? photo
How can Microsoft sway public opinion of Xbox One?
by Conrad Zimmerman

Microsoft's announcement of the Xbox One has been met with no shortage of derision. Concerns over the future of the used games market, the console's need to connect to the internet and a failure to effectively communicate the device's value to the consumer have led to one of the most negatively received console announcements in history.

But it isn't over yet. With E3 on the horizon and several months left before the release of the hardware, what can Microsoft do to turn the tide of public opinion?

Should publishers try to profit from user-created videos? photo
Should publishers try to profit from user-created videos?
by Conrad Zimmerman

Last week, it came to light that Nintendo has started making content claims for popular videos on YouTube which feature their products, including "Let's Play" and other forms of walkthrough content, taking the ad revenue which would have normally gone to the uploader. As the first major sign of corporate intervention in the rapidly expanding form of entertainment which (in all but a few circumstances) necessitates the use of another's intellectual property, one has to wonder: Should they even be trying to profit from the content their customers create?

Should we expect games to fully function at launch?
by Conrad Zimmerman

It seems we can barely go a month without a game release suffering some manner of issue in its launch week that overshadows the game itself. With the complexity of modern games, the wide range of variables at work and the challenges inherent in releasing interactive products on a global scale, it should be no surprise that such issues are possible, but should consumers be willing to accept them? Check out our responses and add yours as we answer The Question.

Should Nintendo stop making home consoles? photo
Should Nintendo stop making home consoles?
by Conrad Zimmerman

Tepid sales of Wii U hardware and the slow drip of content being released for it have led some to suggest that perhaps it would be best if Nintendo just got out of the business of making game systems for the living room. With their handheld business strong and their library of memorable properties, could they be better served as a company by backing out of the highly competitive home console market?

What do you think of HD remakes of games?

[Every week (usually Mondays), Destructoid will pose topical a question to the community. Answer it if you want!]

The games industry seems to be rather fond of remaking the leisure products of yesteryear with fancy, high-definition graphics to bring them into the modern age. Are these releases introducing new audiences to the classics, or just exploiting nostalgia? Does it represent a creative drought within the industry that we see so many of these upgraded releases and so few original IPs? Is it an effective way to keep a series alive between installments?

Is DRM a factor you consider when buying games? photo
Is DRM a factor you consider when buying games?
by Conrad Zimmerman

[Every Monday, Destructoid will pose topical a question to the community. Answer it if you want!]

It's hard to argue that anyone likes the idea of Digital Rights Management systems (apart from some publishers, maybe) and the gaming community has been getting up in arms over the various implementations for what seems like forever. But when it comes time to buy a game, does the presence of DRM have an impact on whether or not you choose to buy it?
