Nintendo is Prepared to deal with Quitters in Super Smash Bros

There is nothing worse in online games than someone who rage quits.

The Benefits of Gaming for Disability and Brain Injury Patients

We all know that gaming is fun. I love it, I have for many years and I will continue to for many more to come. It’s something I do most days and quite frankly the idea of going without is a thing of nightmares. The idea of suffering a stroke and no longer being able to do the activities I love due to loss of movement and cognitive function terrifies me, as does the thought of losing the use of my hands through an accident or disorder, and as a self-confessed hypochondriac I tend to think of the possibility and impact of these things far too much.
