Old Back To The Future Game Is Compellingly Terrible
EA Reaches Critical Mass, Ruptures

Weekly Poll: Macro Madness

Weekly Poll for 6-11-2007Everybody needs a little trash now and then.  How do you know what tastes good if you don't have something foul with which to compare?  The next time you go in search of an original Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse for the Nintendo Entertainment System, pick up Back to the Future II & III from the bottom of the bargain bin.  You'll be glad you did.  Eventually, I mean.  The first few years will be full of regret and buyer's remorse.

I've been building up my custom Akuma character in Street Fighter Alpha 3 MAX's World Tour mode recently, but after playing the game for nearly two weeks straight I decided to finally have a look at the instruction manual.  After all, it's Street Fighter; what's there new to learn?  Imagine my surprise when I read that I can configure the controls to map special moves and super combos to a single button.  No more memorizing complicated button combinations.  However, I can't help but wonder if this is a form of cheating.  This is an option offered by the game, mind you, and not something hacked together with a custom controller or Action Replay-type device.  What do you all out there think?  Are these kinds of controller macros considered cheating?  Cast your vote and leave some comments.
