1. Welcome to The Infinity Program, a general discussion forum that has been around since June, 2004. As the founder, one of my goals is to maintain this community even as others fall to the wayside. Also, I want to encourage engaging conversation by regularly submitting new topics that contain thoughts and insights rather than just aggregated material. Finally, none of the posts here are the result of “exchanges” or “packages”—i.e., all participation at this forum is “organic.”

    If you are a first time visitor and want to know more about this place, read the “Guide,” “A Short History of the Forum,” “Five Reasons to Switch to the Infinity Program,” and the highly entertaining “A Brief History of the Universe.” Along those lines, The Infinity Encyclopedia describes notable members and topics, and notable events of the forum. Alternatively, if you want to submit feedback, contact us.

    Self-imposed restrictions to increase difficulty

      (Medora, Sep 14, 2014 at 4:30 PM, Electronic Verve)

    So some people who do playthroughs of games on YouTube add 'restrictions' to the games they play. For instance, ChronoGear did a 'minimal' run of Majora's Mask, which included skipping items that are not required, and only maintaining three hearts. Even more, in Dark Souls, he remained level one, never healed, did not cast spells, and did not use a shield. (Apparently that Dark Souls playthrough was more forgiving than others on YouTube, such as that by Psychadelicsnake.) Then there was ChronoGear's playthrough of Shovel Knight, that throwback to retro platformers, made far more difficult...

    Nintendo had me thinking about great promotional offers

      (Medora, Jun 7, 2014, Electronic Verve)

    After buying Mario Kart 8, I realized it comes with an offer to register to Club Nintendo (free) for a free digital copy of one of four games, each valued at $60, one of them being The Legend of Zelda: Windwaker HD (in other words, premiere offerings for the Wii U). I chose Pikmin 3 since it was so unlike any other game I've played, and I already own Windwaker. So this had me wondering: What is the best promotional offer you ever received for a game you wanted to get?
