That wouldn't even surprise me, to be honest. What I listed was literally all the American releases of it.

I know Japan actually got a box set of the first three films on LaserDisc that also came with The Making of Raiders of the Lost Ark and Great Adventurers and Their Quests: Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.

Off-topic, something I notice a lot is that certain companies tend to support an off-shoot format heavily for some reason. Paramount actually did release the majority of their films (basically from the late Gulf and Western era up until the early Viacom era) on Video8. From what I remember, Warner Bros. also did too, in a similar time frame.

I don't know if the 70mm version was for the Asian market. It might very well have been. 

A lot of Laserdiscs got exclusive Japanese releases, since Laserdiscs were a much bigger format there than in the West. 

We have the Japanese rental market to thank for that. 

 

Japan also got Muse Hi-Vision, which was a shame. There's something weirdly aesthetic about hi-def analog video. 

I actually have a Pioneer HLD-1000 somewhere, but I need to jerry-rig some sort of power converter for it. 

 

The Video8 support could be due to airline support. 

A lot of in-air movies used to be distributed on Video8 due to their light weight and small size. 

When production companies produced Video8 tapes for airlines they probably produced a small number of home releases to be sold via mailorder. 

You saw the same thing with 8-track tapes up untill the mid-1980's. 

 

Sony also pimped their Video Walkmans (especially in Europe and japan) during the late ´80's / early ´90's, so they might have reimbursed some of the cost of making the Video8 versions. 

 

I also find it kinda cool that VCD is still supported by most Hollywood studios out in Asia. 

Like, I have a copy of Blade Runner 2049 on double VCD which is seemingly an official Sony release.

My god I'm dissapointed in the Warframe community right now. I love the folks there for being balanced and what-not, but a recent post I made got really out of hand. So story time- I had lost (permaban) my Warframe account for a week, an account in which I invested thousands of dollars and hours into because I had Cheat Engine running to hack away in Civ V at the same time.

 

I decided to post on the Warframe forums about it- detailing why I think that system is wrong- and my solution to the banning people based on Cheat Engine- but I just got a barrage of posts telling me I was wrong. Even if I was, it was rather discouraging. Sure, it's my fault for having Cheat Engine open at the same time- but for me, losing my account was almost like someoen killing my dog without warning simply because I took it into a zone where pets weren't allowed, and the community saying its my fault open and shut. From people calling people out it righteous to ban people who run Cheat Engine at all (a software that cannot influence multiplayer games mind you), to those saying why waste time with a system that isn't broken, I think I've had my fill of people disagreeing with me for quite some time. 

 

Although I'm an invested Warframe player myself, the users I encountered who were so pro-DE reminded me of my time in the OnePlus forums actually- where a simple question about removing the OnePlus branding devolved into people calling me a brainless retard for buying a OnePlus phone to remove its internal branding. Its funny how fanboyism works isn't it? In trying to protect the company you like, you paint a red flag on the community as a whole? I don't know, I'm just a annoyed with what happened on these places.

I've experienced a similar thing except I could never trace back the reasoning to my ban. I had hundreds of hours and a lot of money invested in the game and was forced to start fresh. Sadly DE doesn't have a very good support system (as most games don't) in responding to why an account may be banned. Although it may suck that most developers don't care for why you're are banned it's not special to just DE. I suggest just creating a new account and starting fresh. After thousands of hours into my new account, I'm glad I didn't leave the game.

The fact that the default Windows XP background has a Wikipedia page astonishes me.

There's such a thing?

 

I usually work in government ministries, and the price is usually 1.25$. Local co-op is 1$.

 

Apparently white collar workers have less disposable income than students. 

 

Might me because it takes credit cards compared to other places.

So, Idaho got a Comicon this world; Wizard World. Supposed to be the largest convention Idaho has seen.

 

Less people than our local annual Anime convention. Or our saturday Boise farmer's market.


Plunder with thunder!

Kill for the thrill!

Drink up me hardies,

Til we've had our fill!

TWO DOLLARS. o.O

The soda machine at my campus sells them for NOK 20 each, so $2.46. And a trip to one of the grocery stores across the road or next door won't save me any money either. It's pretty much the "standard" price for 0.5l bottles of soda in Norway. Though, a 1.5l bottle at the grocery store only costs slightly more, and has more than twice as much soda in it.

Our commissary has soda bottles for $1.65 plus tax = $1.80

Our vending machines have soda bottles for $1.75

 

Guess who sales more?  Yep, the commissary.
