Today, I deem Bad Moon Rising from Creedance Clearwater Revival as the most appropriate song for the crappy weather we're having.

Man I think I remember some games in the Saturn/N64 era required cheat codes to unlock control settings. Who the hell thought that was a good idea.

I also remember Quake on Saturn having an unlockable 'Jevons Control Method' named after Dan Jevons (I think that was his name) from Sega Saturn Magazine. He suggested to the developers that they should have a control method that used the NiGHTS analogue pad for looking around, while usingthe buttons to move.

Years later, that became the standard for movement/look on Dreamcast FPS games. Pretty clever stuff, am I right?

Trust me, I know how you feel. When I first got my PS3 I was fucking angry about updating shit. I remember I was just going to return it but when you have them down its a smooth ride.

What games did you get?

Just wait until you get a job.

Speaking of which, what the fuck is with the ridiculous experience requirements for every job above entry level now? "Requires 5 years experience as CEO of a major International corporation, in the exact same industry, and preferrably with the same first 3 letters in the company name."

Thanks for the tip. I wish I had composite hookups but I'm kind of stuck with what I got. I actually found a D-terminal version of that with a swtich and everything for just a few 100 yen more. Oh well, I just figured I'd put all the game systems affected on a power strip with independant switches.

It seems to do the job well enough and helps keep my systems from siphoning off power when they aren't in use. My fat PS2 and 360 are horrible offenders at this as they are the primary reason the cable I have won't play nice. They draw power even when they are off.

But I did get a refund.

However, with a Easter's Greetings Sale for Street Fighter 4(for 7£), it's already been two full days and my order has been dispatched yet. Darn it.

I helped my uncle move a really really old sitting down style freezer through a few corridors throughout a basement and up a lot of stairs and out of his house into his garage. It is literally the hardest thing I ever had to do in my life, as it was just under 1000 pounds. My legs were shaking for hours after and right now I can literally feel all of my muscles expanding within every one of my fingers.

The worst part is that we had to stop halfway up the stairs and I had to balance it just right for about five minutes. Not only was I extremely exhausted by then, but the steps were about 5-6 inches long (never saw steps so thin in my life... Just my luck) I was in a section of the walkway that if I were to have dropped it, I would have instantly been decapitated between the ceiling and the freezer and the rest of my body would have been completely smashed, so that is pretty neat to think about!

At least I got a steak and cheese sub after, and I had not done anything with that uncle in a really long time, so it was nice to catch up on our lives after we moved some crap out of his house (the freezer was not all we moved!).

So Anna Paquin says shes bisexual, and yet she is engaged to a man.  :roll:
I'm assuming they're committed to each other, so whats the fucking point of "coming out" as bisexual when she will be exclusively f***ing a man for (presumably) the rest of her life.
It's like going to a restaurant and ordering the pizza, and then while you eat it you tell everybody "I also eat pasta, and I could have ordered it and eaten it". Well guess what, you ordered the pizza, you're eating the pizza, and unless you leave the pizza and reorder pasta you are stuck with the pizza.

They are based on what you google search, custom for each person.

The PS2 sold around a million, PSP around 450,000 and PS3 250,000.

Well, I did wax my chest and back recently, so I looked a little slimmer.

But no, the tires were too smooth, that is there is supossed to be a 0,006 inch of space between the tires and the tire marks, and I got a 33$ fine that will be mailed when I replace the tires(I haven't been fined yet, I have to fix the tires, go the police station to get their documents signed, get my papers back and then I will be fined.

Why do you shed the manly coat of hair? If I had a lot of chest hair, I would wear low cut shirts for the ladies to see.

Sadly, I'm not as fortunate.

I do it mostly, around late spring/summer time as that's ussually the time where my chest and back hair bother me a lot.

Long story short, but when Chris started the "deals" about the Kartel, it was not called that at all. They had like "Nerd Herd" in all the pictures I saw. Lame, I know.

They also had a way better deal in place, then it changed when Chris was away and G was in charged.

<MadeMan>: oh yeah, and also I found my long lost father, who happened to be guus hiddink, and he quickly committed suicide seconds before Aki-at returnd

<MadeMan>: It was horrible

<MadeMan>: I'm going to write a screenplay about it

<Aki-at>: OH SHIT MAN!

<MadeMan>: his death will not be in vain

<Aki-at>: That is pretty shitty =/

<MadeMan>: Yeah

<Aki-at>: At least you still have your fake father

<MadeMan>: you mean...

<MadeMan>: Arsene?

<Aki-at>: =OOOOOO

<Antikrist>: My father and Mother died when I was a kid, car crash

<Aki-at>: You are part French!??

<Antikrist>: my father used to drink and drive

<MadeMan>: My step father is Arsene

<Antikrist>: then on Oct 9th, they took their last ride

<MadeMan>: he took me in after guus hiddink lost me

<Aki-at>: Oh that...

<Antikrist>: I was 8 at the time, I had to move and live with my Grandma

<Aki-at>: So do you play at Arsenal? =O

<MadeMan>: Yeah

<Aki-at>: =OOOO

<MadeMan>: I once beat Manchester United by myself

<Aki-at>: Who are you?

<Aki-at>: OMG!!!

<Aki-at>: PATRICK!!!

<Aki-at>: ITS YOU!!!

<MadeMan>: I had to play Goalkeeper and Striker and Sweeper at the same time

<Aki-at>: What the fuck sweeper?

<MadeMan>: yeah

<Aki-at>: Some guy Austrilian term for winger I guess

<MadeMan>: no

<MadeMan>: I had to sweep up the stadium after the game

<Aki-at>: OHHHHHHHHH

<MadeMan>: we fired the janitors

<Aki-at>: YOU ARE EBOUE!

<Aki-at>: I know it!

<MadeMan>: because I did a better job

<Aki-at>: Ebouuuueeee!

<MadeMan>: yes?

<Aki-at>: But you never beat Manchester...

<MadeMan>: the game wasn't televised

<MadeMan>: because the Man Utd sponsors

<MadeMan>: were too embarrased

<MadeMan>: to see their team lose by so much

<MadeMan>: to one person

<Aki-at>: =OOOOO

<MadeMan>: I thrashed them 27 - nil

<Aki-at>: Eboue why are you never awesome on the televised games? =(

<MadeMan>: A handful of reasons

<Aki-at>: Such as?

<MadeMan>: I'm holding myself back so I don't get traded to another richer club

<MadeMan>: because I'm loyal to my team

<Aki-at>: Ohhhhhhhhhhhhh =O

<MadeMan>: so I only play to my full capacity on the un-televised games

<Aki-at>: That makes sense

<MadeMan>: so that nobody will bid huge money

<Aki-at>: But wait...

<Aki-at>: I;;d rather you have one good seasons with us, win something and get sold for big bucks, then have no good seasons and win nothing =(

<Aki-at>: Also Arsenal are the third richest in the world anyway...

<MadeMan>: but I do win mad crazy games

<MadeMan>: but, the TV companies refuse to televise them

<MadeMan>: because the ratings would be shit if it was just me winning every week

<MadeMan>: so they don't televise the real games

<MadeMan>: and re-enact the games on Fifa 08 and televise that instead

<Aki-at>: So are we really winning everything then?

<MadeMan>: yeah

<Antikrist>: HELPING THE WORLD TO SEE

<Antikrist>: That this soccer talk is gay

<MadeMan>: we haven't lost a game in the last 4 years

<Aki-at>: 0.0

<MadeMan>: but FIFA has been providing false results to teh world to keep their ratings up

<Aki-at>: Shame about your real father though

<MadeMan>: its the single most elaborate and intricate conspiracy in the world

<MadeMan>: I have a feeling that Guus didn't commit suicide

<MadeMan>: but rather

<MadeMan>: he was Killed by Fifa, because he knew too much

<MadeMan>: he was going to go public and reveal everything

<MadeMan>: so they had Vieri kill him

<Aki-at>: OH SHIT THE ITALIAN?!?

<MadeMan>: yeah

<MadeMan>: he's actually an assasin

<Aki-at>: MUTHAFUCKER

<MadeMan>: a soccer player is just his cover

<MadeMan>: think about it

<Aki-at>: We should take him down Eboue

<Aki-at>: You and me

<MadeMan>: He travels the world, meets important people, has loads of money

<Aki-at>: And Fruits

<MadeMan>: its a perfect cover for an international assassin

<MadeMan>: I agree

<BuzzTron_451>: hi

<Aki-at>: But that's like every football player ever

<MadeMan>: you, me and fruits, and Maybe Buzz

<MadeMan>: we are going to blow this thing wide open

Just checked out Sega Uranus's 'The Sega Source' and I've got to say it... needs to find it's own niche. As it stands it's like everything already posted on SegaNerds and SegaBits with a smattering of Junkyard/Memories reviews and Sega history highlights.

I wish them the best of luck with it but... I can't see myself visiting it often. Now if the blog focused on the star employees and divisions, THAT I'd visit often.

like: 'Sega Legacy' focusing more on the business aspect, or highlighting Sega devs and their impact on the industry.

like: 'Sega Legacy' focusing more on the business aspect, or highlighting Sega devs and their impact on the industry.

What I and the staff set off to achieve is a more robotic, factual approach than most gaming sites do, like Joystiq or Kotaku. Notice how they make jokes constantly or drop names or references most non-gamers will not understand? Not only will the industry never be taken seriously with crap like that, but not explaining some of their references will just confuse non-gamers or anyone really trying to get into them and might put them off the medium entirely, in the worst case scenario. It does not help that most "Gaming blogs" look very nerdy and childish, this can be embarrassing and annoying even for huge gamers.

I am not out to say we are better than anyone else, but we just have different concepts and plans than most have. We will be updating every Friday with very detailed reviews (which we try to not make too long... my Bayonetta review for SEGAbits is a good example for something that is too long) and every Sunday we will have a biography or just a general history lesson of sorts that can be about just about anything in SEGA's past. I think you are missing the point if you want me to focus on the "Stars" of the company, a big reason I made the site was to hopefully help people understand and respect SEGA for the truly advanced and revolutionary company they are. Everyone knows about Yu Suzuki now, but how many know about Makoto Uchida? Sure, a few of his games are of questionable quality, but that is not the point. He is part of SEGA just the same.

Sorry if that came off as rant-ish. I just want to get my point around. I am very excited about what we want to do and hope you will enjoy it more as time passes. I appreciate the constructive criticism, I really do.

I getcha now. :) I didn't mean to come off as an asshole, I was just typing my thoughts on the site from a Sega fan perspective. Of course, you already noted that you knew that, so I just typed that I know that you knew I knew... y'know?

As far as the "robotic, factual approach", I wish you the best of luck! It's a tricky line to walk, go too far and you come off as snobbish, while another extreme would be too robotic (people partially read for some personality and commentary).

Take TSSZ, for example, they are a shitty shit site. The owner treats each article like it's the 10 o'clock news and even goes to far as to bash other sites. Hardly a friendly place to read and definitely leaves a sour taste in your mouth.

Anywho, looking forward to what you make of the Source. :)
Title: Re: Post your current thoughts thread
Post by: Sega Uranus on April 26, 2010, 10:04:14 pm
S'all cool, man.

And what I meant by "Robotic and factual" was just explaining everything like a robot would... If you know, they could like do this stuff. I figure most people do not care about jokes when they are reading game news because they are reading game news and not game webcomics.

As for TSSZ, I am well aware of the galaxy of shit they are in, I am going to avoid that as best I can. And for being snobby, the only one like that can muster that up on my staff is Kogen and he only does history articles and reviews anyways.

Thinking that I, quite honestly, sometimes don't understand the mentality of people who buy and sell in an online auction website such as Miau.pt.

It puzzles me to put an online auction up by trying to sell an item for barely 2€, plus shipping costs and someone almost always asks in the Q&A section if the seller would accept shipping for less than that and with shipping already included. :evil:

It could be worse, Labor got in power over here and so far all theyve done is waste money on rorts and shady enterprises.

They set up 'Insulation' subsidies that meant anyone could become an insulator for homes, and resulted in several deaths and houses burning down due to extremely lax regulations. Not to mention people that got totally ripped off by shoddy work.

They also introduced a ridiculously stupid building program for schools where they would have certain approved building companies (ie: the Union boys that got them elected) would build $50,000 buildings for $800,000 paid by the government. Also, they refused to build anything but large sheds, if you needed a new gym/cafeteria/landscaping/computers, "Fuck you, you're getting a million dollar shed".

Also they are spending huge amounts of money on some stupid broadband network for ultra high speed interwebs. Sounds sensible, until you realise it will take EIGHT YEARS for this to be done, by which time it'll surely be obselete anyway. Also, only one Telecommunication company is actually capable of winning the bid to do it.

Also, they want to censor the whole internet by introducing a filter that only allows government-approved sites to be viewed in the country.

Also, on a state level, they just blew $5 Billion on a 'Metro Train' system plan. That's right, the 'Plan'. They never actually built or did anything, just thought about it for a bit, bought loads of land, hired shit-tons of engineering companies then said "nahhhh".

Also they want to introduce 'Death Duties' so your family has to pay taxes when you die, because apparantly they haven't made up enough retarded taxes to take our money yet.

Your Labor government sounds stupid.

Actually I'll be honest.

Your Labor government sounds like our Conservative party.

Maybe you should take our Labour party, they built more schools, hospitals, fixed the NHS, introduced a minimum wage, free bus passes and so much more. A lot which the Tories hate (Well they really hate the NHS, they tried to make a PUBLIC SECTOR SERVICE into a PRIVATE SECTOR SERVICE, how can you be so dumb maaaaan)

Just saw this on /wooo/. It's the English election if it were booked by Vince Russo

Quote

    *Brown, Clegg and Cameron face each other in a 'Keys To 10 Downing Street' triple threat match, held inside a three-tiered cage, with a scaled-down model of Big Ben on top of the third tier. *

    The keys to 10 Downing Street themselves are suspended on a wire above the big ben model. In order to win the match, the three cage tiers and the big ben model must be climbed in order to retrieve the keys, which then have to be used to open a replica of the 10 Downing Street door, which is placed on the entrance ramp.

    However, the only way for the participants to get through the cage tiers is via a live online vote, which would determine the order of who could climb into the next tier first.

    Halfway through the match, the Queen unexpectedly shows up and proclaims herself to be the special match enforcer, despite there being no mention of an enforcer at all beforehand.

    The match is a back-and-forth-affair between brown and cameron, with clegg pulling off cruiserweight flippy shit to try and get an advantage, but getting effortlessly shut down by brown and cameron every time.

    The match soon turns into a clusterfuck, as an endless stream of various lab/lib/con party members make run-ins and saves, with the online vote rule going straight out of the window as brown, clegg and cameron climb the tiers to try and escape further beatdowns.

    A massive group of illegal immigrants suddenly swarms the ring and breaks through the cage, taking down everyone inside - except cameron. Nick Griffin and his BNP cronies emerge from the audience, joining cameron and the immigrants in the cage, a conservative victory looking all but certain...


WHEN IT COMES CRASHING DOWN AND IT HURTS INSIDE

Hulk Hogan suddenly makes his entrance, saving the Queen from her immigrant assailants, before joining forces with her majesty and clearing out all the politicians, foreigners and racists inside the first cage.

They both climb into the tier currently holding clegg, brown, cameron and griffin, staring the unholy alliance down. cameron and griffin get the upper hand-

UNTIL BROWN, HOGAN, CLEGG AND THE QUEEN ALL HULK UP OUTTA FUCKING NOWHERE, decimating griffin and cameron with big boots and legdrops, earning massive crowd pops all round.

Hogan is handed a microphone

"Well you see, brothers, I couldn't just stand there and let the red and the yellow get beat down like that, no way, brother. Because it's not the red, white and blue that's gonna win tonight, brother. It's the [spoiler:19xff788]BLACK AND WHITE![/spoiler:19xff788]

Hogan grabs the Queen's sceptre and clocks everyone with it. The referee reveals himself as Eric Bischoff in disguise as Scott Hall and Kevin Nash make their way to the ring. They hold an impromptu 'coronation' as Hogan takes the Queen's crown, proclaiming himself and the newly-reformed NWO as the new rulers of britain.

Subsequent weeks see the former royal family locked in a feud with the NWO for the crown, only to get beaten down and screwed everytime.

"Fucked up so bad", is the understatement of the decade.
The imminent collapse of the portuguese economy is what Sócrates is aiming for and PPC better damn well do something about it.

Of course, unfortunatly(if that's where you're getting at), the problems in Portugal's mindset go way beyond the Left vs Right battle:

Recommended reading (http://http://blog.iea.org.uk/?p=2683)
Quote
Apart from the far-left parties (which have an electoral weight of close to 20% and hold radical anti-capitalistic views) there is a large social-democratic consensus in Portuguese society favouring Keynesian  views that is shaken only by the prospect of imminent financial collapse. The Keynesian consensus pervades most political, media and academic contexts and leads to a dangerous state of denial and to blaming external agents (greedy faceless speculators, the US, the ECB or even Germany) for the crisis.

Update: And another thing, if PPC is apologizing now, then he shouldn't have the agreement with Sócrates in the first place. Now he has blood in his hands.

I never said things were good and that I agreed to our PM's delusional state of mind. There are unemployed people inside this house. I know the drill. I said the right wing did nothing about the overall state of affairs and that is true. When they got to power in 2002 all they did was blame the other party for everything that was going on, acting as if they were still opposition, instead of, at the very least, show an optimistic view towards the future. It helped sink their ship and gave Durão Barroso a good excuse to run for the EU Commission. It will be prestigious for Portugal, people said at the time. Yeah, right. Shove the prestige. The only thing I saw them do right was hunt down tax evaders.

I'm not sure if PPC is starting the right way. He did agree to the tax increase (leading to his apology) however something tells me it will be very hard for next year's budget to be approved.

"Fucked up so bad", is the understatement of the decade.

Please. I took it from your "f***-ups of over 14 years of PS dominated government" expression. Not everything was bad since the current PR left the job of PM. If you really can't see any good done in so long... Heh, there's nothing I can do about it.

Sorry to hear.
But true for PSD-PP blaming each other, but playing the blame game and "the country never advanced because of pessimism" became Socrate's slogans and he became severly hostile towards people who dissagreed with him, oppostion, journalists and bloggers.

And true, Santana Lopes was also a total jerk for getting Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa out of RTP.

Consider yourself lucky, no one is as bad as the Conservatives.

Cancelled the third runway in Heathrow, announced they will build nuclear power plants without spending any public money (Despite there not being any power plant that wasnt made without public money...) 70 odd million cut in police and far less employed, 22 billion pounds to help line the pockets of the well off and rich, the Olympic budget being cut, Home Information Packs abolished which has already taken away 10,000 jobs and trying to pass a law that means you can only vote a no confidence against the government with a 55% majority, instead of being able to vote no confidence with a majority of just one. All within two days of being in power.

The age of Austerity is well and truly back for Britain. I expect far worse in a week or two times.

Hehe, that's silly! ^__^ But I was referring to their personalities in the DiC show, not the Nelvana one. I'm not sure how similar they are.

Anyway, Kazuma's personality really is similar. The way he talks when he's helping someone with their personal problems or their feelings is just like a Care Bear would when they help. Despite being a known Yakuza member, he's very sweet, caring, and sensitive. He wants everyone to get along and be friends with each other instead of fighting. When he does get into fights, it's only his version of the Care Bear Stare. Also, before the final boss battle in Yakuza 3, [spoiler:2diy6exf]he and the final boss have a nice discussion about their feelings and what true friendship is all about.[/spoiler:2diy6exf]
 
So yeah... he's the Yakuza's version of a Care Bear. ^__^

Their latest album is really poor but I still like the band a great deal. Their live shows are great, even with all the shitty new songs. It's too bad the band are becoming massively famous thanks to the Twilight films. I think that's doing them more harm than good. Bellamy's strength never were the lyrics but these days *all* the songs are awfully cheesy. I honestly miss Muse from Origin of Symmetry and Absolution. There are B-sides from these eras that are better than pretty much anything in the latest record.

I actually think their albums got better with time. You know, actual lyrical content and a less alternative-heavy influenced music style.
I love Resistance and Black Holes.

Maybe that's the reason of their success. This shit appeals to more people, like me..

I think that Twilight is not the major factor of their success though. It may have opened them up for a new public, but aside from this new song I don't think that's their main demographic target..

Hey, Sonic Battle is actually really good fun! Not the most polished fighter around, but the replay value is fucking solid, the character selections are literally the best you could do with a collab of Sonic stuff (shit, even Chaos 0 is playable!!). It also has a very nice style and nice music. One of the most overlooked Sonic games IMO.

Remember that old text game "Torture"?

"Use thumb screws"

how many thumb screws would you like to use on your victim?

"999999999999999999999"

your victim has died

also: YES! my promotion (aka raise) kicked in this month! I'm finally making MORE than my living and entertainment expenses! Only took 25 years to get here, but it's worth it!

Here in Canada we've got 3 levels of Police. Federal, provincial, and municipal.
Bigger Cities have their own police services. Ontario and Quebec both have their own provincial police that cover small towns and provincial laws (liquor laws, highway laws, etc...).  The Mounties (RCMP) cover federal laws (guns & drugs), and pretty much everything else outside of Ontario and Quebec.

If I went out for RCMP, I could get shipped anywhere in Canada (it's a big country), so I'm going for OPP (provincial police) because I'd like to be kinda close to my family.

The OPP uniform looks more like this

That is pretty interesting. Too bad you won't get to ride a horse, but those are some of the better looking police uniforms I've seen. Do police carry guns in Canada? Can't tell from that pic.
Title: Re: Post your current thoughts thread
Post by: SOUP on May 29, 2010, 10:40:02 pm
Yes. The standard gear goes like this: Gun, baton, OC spray, taser, and handcuffs.
The kind of guns used depend on the police service (RCMP use different ones than the OPP).
In Ontario, it's all regulated as far as exactly what types of guns officers are given.

You'll appreciate this extract from Snow Crash:

Quote
The franchise and the virus work on the same principle: what thrives in one place will thrive in another. You just have to find a sufficiently virulent business plan, condense it into a three-ring binder -- its DNA – Xerox it, and embed it in the fertile lining of a well-traveled highway, preferably one with a left-turn lane. Then the growth will expand until it runs up against its property lines.

In olden times, you'd wander down to Mom's Cafe for a bite to eat and a cup of joe, and you would feel right at home. It worked just fine if you never left your hometown. But if you went to the next town over, everyone would look up and stare at you when you came in the door, and the Blue Plate Special would be something you didn't recognize. If you did enough traveling, you'd never feel at home anywhere.

But when a businessman from New Jersey goes to Dubuque, he knows he can walk into a McDonald's and no one will stare at him. He can order without having to look at the menu, and the food will always taste the same. McDonald's is Home, condensed into a three-ring binder and xeroxed. "No surprises" is the motto of the franchise ghetto, its Good Housekeeping seal, subliminally blazoned on every sign and logo that make up the curves and grids of light that outline the Basin.

The people of America, who live in the world's most surprising and terrible country, take comfort in that motto. Follow the loglo outward, to where the growth is enfolded into the valleys and the canyons, and you find the land of the refugees. They have fled from the true America, the America of atomic bombs, scalpings, hip-hop, chaos theory, cement overshoes, snake handlers, spree killers, space walks, buffalo jumps, drive-bys, cruise missiles, Sherman's March, gridlock, motorcycle gangs, and bun-gee jumping. They have parallel-parked their bimbo boxes in identical computer-designed Burbclave street patterns and secreted themselves in symmetrical sheetrock shitholes with vinyl floors and ill-fitting woodwork and no sidewalks, vast house farms out in the loglo wilderness, a culture medium for a medium culture.

The only ones left in the city are street people, feeding off debris; immigrants, thrown out like shrapnel from the destruction of the Asian powers; young bohos; and the technomedia priesthood of Mr. Lee's Greater Hong Kong. Young smart people like Da5id and Hiro, who take the risk of living in the city because they like stimulation and they know they can handle it.

The giant inflatable bat from Meat Loaf's Bat out of Hell tour and one of Eddie Murphy's 80's standup outfits made an appearance. Walker Texas Ranger Lever (called the Chuck Norris Action Policeman Handle for legal reasons), Triumph (via video) and masturbating bear all showed up. 3.5 hours of entertainment = Good times.

I saw every episode of the History Channel's 'America: The Story of Us' and need to say I am really annoyed by it. First off, they get extremely high quality (for television) actors and take great shots of the country mixed in with some impressive tech (again, for television) to show off how things built in America grew over the years and then they skip half of the facts about America or just get a lot of the info wrong or tell it in a way that it looks more convenient for how the viewer should probably respect the country. Basically, propaganda.

Though, they did have some interesting and well written bits, it is just not enough.

Canned Grapefruit?

Well now I've heard everything.
I KNOW

When I saw it in the store, my first reaction was "WTF?" and then I had to get some because cans are convenient and it was rather inexpensive, to boot.

How does it taste in comparison? I could really go for some grapefruit but it is pretty rare here, so I might look into some of it canned in the future.

It tastes gooood, like grapfruit should! ^__^ I'm not sure if they added sugar or not, but it's good fruit nonetheless. I had the other half of the can today. It will possibly be a common staple for me from now on.

It's 3AM, I forgot how to fall asleep. I just wait around and wait till morning is here.
She's waiting for me to call her, I've forgotten how to care. No matter how much I love her I'm just too afraid of the future to do something about it.
I've cried yet, I forgot what it is to be sad. I did so many bad things I don't allow myself to feel miserable.

I love life, I hate myself. I don't think about it because it isn't worth affecting myself and her because of it. Still, it's 3h30AM and here I am alone wanting her here, praying she's awake too, crying over me and my damned weakness.

I'm sounding off a bit unfair though. Maybe it is true. I may just wish she yearns for me, but I want to spend my life with her. But not this way.. Not apart.. Holding each other, loving each other.

I don't realize what she means to me. Maybe I never will.. I'm just happy to have her.
Love of mine, wherever you are I hope you are aware that I love you.

Fuck my sins. I've awaited your kiss for too long.

Just got back from a day at the shooting range, I did fairly well I think. I got a score of 253 for Pistols (getting a bullseye every shot would score 500, so I did alright I think. I only missed the target once out of 50 shots from a range of 25 yards).

In rifles I got 399, which isn't that impressive considering they were scoped.

Thinking about getting a licence now, I know that a few others are interested in it, might be fun. Wouldn't buy a handgun though, at least not right away as theres so many regulations for it.

Pathetic that I can get the main Xbox franchises for like $20 that all take tons of hours to beat a year after they are out, but the remake of Punch-Out, a two hour game is still fucking $40, and that is one of Nintendo's cheapest games. Not to mention that all of Nintendo's games that do not sell do not drop in price, but disappear forever, only to be bought ever again by rich collectors. Fuck.

Sonic Colors was the straw the broke the camels back really. If the only good games SEGA is only going to put on it are 20 minute long lightgun games on it, then no loss to me.

Not to mention that all of Nintendo's games that do not sell do not drop in price, but disappear forever, only to be bought ever again by rich collectors. Fuck.

Sonic Colors was the straw the broke the camels back really. If the only good games SEGA is only going to put on it are 20 minute long lightgun games on it, then no loss to me.

Will you also burn all your NiGHTS merch?

I am willing to take a video of me burning NiGHTS Journey of Dreams, though.  :!:

But yeah, looks like I am going to get rid of my Wii. I know of someone who would like to buy it, I am looking towards getting a PlayStation 3 to pretty much only play Yakuza and Naughty Dog games, maybe some imports. Once I get it George's head will probably cave in from confusion.

My real annoyance is not because I do not think Wii has any good games, it is that all of the ones I am usually interested in are so expensive and so short. The last Wii game I bought for retail was Wario Land, which is a good game, but it took me like 4 hours overall to find almost everything in the damn game to begin with. What kind of crazy bullshit is that? I mean, I constantly spend under $10 to buy Xbox 360 games new and play them for over 20 hours. I know I can do the same with PlayStation 3, so it just seems like a way better deal for me overall honestly. If I turn on my Wii at all anymore it is just to play some Virtual Console games or use the Internet Browser, what a joke.

Metroid Corruption was the second game I owned for Wii, and is now one of the three games I own that I never beat, one of which I only just started anyways. I absolutely hate it and think it is extremely boring, one of the worst in the Metroid series.

Muramasa is lame hack n slash crap that was already confirmed to be coming to HD consoles later on anyways, so why play it on weaker hardware with less features? I do not even like the gameplay and rather play the companies better games, like Odin Sphere and Princess Crown.

Never liked Monster Hunter, either. Wii's online stuff sucks beyond reason and I do not know anyone who is even interested in the game and do not want to make Monster Hunter-only friends.

For other games like Epic Mickey, I can always play them on a friends console or something if I really need to. For instance I beat Uncharted twice and never owned the console, so I am not too worried at all.

That's a bit harsh on muramasa. and it's not 'Confirmed' to come to HD consoles, Shadi just pretended it was when the publisher mentioned something vaguely talking about HD consoles or something.

It's a pretty good game, not perfect, but good. I was just pointing it and others out because it's quite long and not at all a game you would finish in '4 hours' like you said. Ditto De Blob.

I can understand selling your Wii, but just wanted to point out theres quite a few long games on there.

They said some content was cut before release, but that happens with every game. I still remember people flipping out over it on Sega.com, like they'd never seen 'deleted scenes' on a DVD before.

Heading to Minnesota tomorrow! I'm not going to visit ShadiWulf. I'm visiting my family and heading to my cabin which is a dead zone for internet and phones. I'll have to play real life games like "IRL Bass Fishing", "Cheese & Deer Meat Eater Xtreme" and "Bonfire Party".

So I won't be round these parts for a good 8 days, though I might pop in once or twice.

My goal: to find the copy of Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch for SEGA CD that I remember being at one of the local antique stores ten years back. I'll bet it's still there.

Awesome graphics, and the controls are really well done, but all of those games have terrible storylines. Well, Bass Fishing has a funny incidental mission where a guy loses his phone in the water, but it's rare. The last boss in Cheese and Deer is really hard though.

I loved Iron Man 2
, and I'm hoping to see Toy Story 3 within the next week or so.
I'm also going to try and see Predators when it comes out. I love that franchise.
Now that's an odd sentence.

Well, I did love it. I enjoyed the film very much. =)

Anywho, I start some volunteer work at a day care center this week.  It will be fantastic.

"we still can't be together, i can't stand having you so far away for so long. let's be just friends for a little while longer"
How to revert this? Just wait?

Either way, had a pretty nice date today. Got tired as fuck. I got home and started to sleep like a freaking tombstone. Then I got a text from another girl, and my phone buzzed all over the place waking me up. I called her some nasty stuff, but still can't get back to the sleeping. I've got a massive sunburn as well! I'm laying down on top of a wet towel. I feel like a Green Hill crab. Awesome feeling.

Sometimes I don't know if I love my life or hate it. Either way, I'm pretty good at it. I'm lucky.

PS3's FIFA online play is god awful. Every game ends in an about 5 goal difference either with me winning or losing. It's a simple matter of WHO is getting the lag. Suddenly the players stop running, start spinning around, the goal keeper doesn't come out of the net, and the controls stop working.

Fuck that. I'm not playing this shit again. I'm sick of this. It's infuriating. Wins feel cheap and losses make me wanna punch puppies.

That's weird, I thought EA was supposed to be pretty good with their netcode. I know I didn't have too many problems with Fight Night at least.

I'm currently trying to install a new printer. It's wireless!

I used to play the exact same FIFA games on the 360. It was great!
Now same game, same internet, lousy play? Do they have different netcodes for the PS3 and 360?

I hate playing online anyway. It just gave me more coins for ingame spending..

I finished Friends. wow it was great. One of the best series I have ever watched. I wish there was more..

That Games Radar website sucks.

Their list article of VG characters that died totally spoiled a game I've yet to finish. You could say shame on me for reading it, but I was assuming they would list games that have been out for long enough that most people know the ending and have had time to finish the games listed. Instead, they stick in a game that has only been out for a month and has so much content that few people have actually reached the ending.

the game was
[spoiler:393sv19e]Red Dead Redemption[/spoiler:393sv19e]

I say there should be a good 2 months before endings to movies/games and books are publicly spoiled. Even then, there should be a spoiler warning. I remember Bayonetta's ending was already being mentioned in articles just a week after the game launched.

another thought: I'm gearing up for more original content articles here at bits! 5 Things, SEGAbits All-Stars and possibly a retro review. :)

Thank you for your opinion, but I'm still doing my 5 things articles.  :P Note that it's not a top ten, it's five things that should or shouldn't be done to a future game/IP. 14 responses to my previous 5 things is a pretty good signal that I did something right.

Just got back from some indoor rock climbing. First time i've ever done it, my fore-arms are killing me! I need to learn to put more weight on my legs rather than my arms. The first two runs or so I was mostly using my arms, then the next few I couldn't even make it past half-way since my hands just gave out each time.

Lots of fun though!

Even the most retarded and ugly kids in my old school hang out with more girls then I do these days... Not that I'm bothered by this, just an observation I've made via facebook.

I think my problem is I can't remember the last time I spoke to a girl and I wasn't completely repulsed by something they said, their personality, the way they look or more often then not how stupid I find them all.

Thank god I got a girlfriend before I became such a jaded and hateful prick with low enough self worth that I could shape her into the kind of girl I can stand though strategic insults.

I had a dream. In short, I was in a South Asian country and a boy stole my wallet. I chased after him. When I caught him, I beat him. Then somehow I found his home and I saw his room with a few Sega action figures, some games (Virtua Fighter Remix, Sonic...) and a few Sega posters. There was a Dreamcast controller as well. For some reason there were Transformers posters there too. I cried and then I woke up.

My subconscious is totally fucked up, I never cared about Transformers.

Strange... That's the kind of thing that my straight friends complain to me about, except involving women. So I don't think it's a habit that's exclusive to one gender. ^^'''

Good to hear, I bet you feel so relieved now! Hope you can rest a little easier now.

I've been going mad with job interviews today. Had one yesterday (which was after a phone interview), now they want me to call today to organise a third. This morning I had another unrelated one with a recruitment center, and they've already asked me to travel to the client this afternoon for another interview.

Fingers crossed!

A guy's furnace broke down 3 months after he bought the place, so he picked the most expensive repair shop, that convinced him he needed to replace the furnace for 3 times what it should have cost, then sued us (the 2 Realtors) for the cost, plus a new refrigerator.

What kind of job are you looking for?

Marketing related work, most likely a marketing co-ordinator or assistant marketing manager position. Today has been absolutely insane, when it rains it really pours.

I got back from meeting the clients this afternoon, and I need to send an email to the recruitment place in regards to another job that just came in yesterday. I also had to call and organise the one for tuesday like I said earlier.

Then I checked my emails and found one from the manager of a place I went for an interview weeks ago saying a position just opened I might be interested in, so to get back to him to organise another talk/interview.

Maybe one of you guys can help me:

So at my work I am one of four people on a Mac. Rest of the staff is PC. From as far as I know the company and tech support has no direct control over what I can do with the internet, and our access is shared with a University. However, since yesterday I have been unable to access sonicstadium.org. I receive an error reading "This link appears to be broken. could not locate the server (DNS error)." I get similar errors (same error, different wording) with all of my other browsers ( Flock, Firefox, Safari). All my other sites work fine, but sonic stadium never shows up. Not even the forums.

I then tried  a proxy site and got through fine, and could completely browse the site via the proxy. Why is it that Sonic Stadium is the only site that has this error for me? Am I being blocked by TSS or my work? I'd think porn, ebay and facebook would be locked before a Sonic fan site.

Any tech help would be awesome.
Title: Re: Post your current thoughts thread
Post by: max_cady on July 23, 2010, 12:18:54 pm
Yeah, maybe I can answer that...

It sometimes happens, but websites often times have a list of IPs that are blacklisted. It might be that for some reason TSS is blacklisting your IP.


But most of these cases, it's mostly because the network administrator has blocked the access for that particular site, hence having to use hidden proxies.

Network administrators are jerks like that.
Title: Re: Post your current thoughts thread
Post by: Barry the Nomad on July 23, 2010, 12:33:07 pm
Thanks for the info!

Yeah, you never know. There might be a Sonic fan at the University who pissed off TSS, thus ruining it for everybody else.

I might contact a few of the mods, who I know well, and see if they can't look into it. For now, the proxy works fine.

The internet is an amazing and magical thing.

Well, after two very harsh weeks, things seem to be going my way right now.

Today I had the exam for Algorithmic Analysis and Optimization(it's mostly about Operations Research). And last time I got burned so badly because the exam was nothing like I had expected and two of the exercises had a total of 14 out of 20, and predictably I had only 6.

But today, man, I'm almost certain I'll get a high score. I had all the first 5 questions, which were 8 points. And the Transportation Problem which was also 8 points. So unless I screwed up at the Two-Phase Method, I'm looking at a 16 out of 20(which is like the highest score I've ever gotten in college).

So it might be alright.

And I'll have to do a presentation about the Chinese Postman Problem next week. I already finished a 32-page report, so now I have to worry about the presentation.

If I get a least a 10 out of 20, then I'm one step closer to getting my bachelor's degree! Oh, yeah!

I'm a week into being a blu-ray owner, and I gotta say that I'm loving it!

The good:
+ Picture quality for animation, particularly CG and stop motion, is awesome. I watched Up and the latest Wallace and Gromit short.
+ Menus are slick. Very easy to jump around mid-movie
+ Commentaries are actually fun again! The audio-only got boring after a few years, thankfully they now have video and production art whizzing around the screen as the movie plays. The commentaries for the Clone Wars movie and Terminator Salvation were great.

The bad:
- Things like comedies and independent films are not any better in HD. The $10 HD price hike for stuff like Superbad and The Hangover isn't worth it. I'd prefer buying non-effects driven movies on DVD and simply rent the blu-rays via netflix.
- blu-ray cases still annoy me. The blue usually clashes with the cover art (baby blue does not suit horror movies) and they're an inch shorter than a DVD case. Not a huge problem, but an annoyance nonetheless.
- I'm going to have to get used to loading times. Nothing has exceeded 20 seconds, but it still feels like a long wait when you want to watch something.

No, as a tv viewer and gamer I hate kevin butler. The commercials are stupid, sexist and way too "aw snap dawg" internet slang. Also, it doesn't focus on the actual games and hardware, more on stupid jokes about men playing video games and women not understanding how a remote works (lawl, haw haw).

Quit the fanboy accusations, and that goes well beyond this post.

I must not have seen the ads you are talking about, because the earlier ones I saw (probably over a few months old now) were really nice. =P Though I will agree, I was taken aback by the Marcus PSP ads they showed at E3.

However, I still say that you'd hate Kevin Butler just on the basis that he's in Sony ads. If he were advertising for the 360, you'd be trying to find ways to defend any claims of sexism (just like you Sega nerds put up a defense for you-know-who).
Title: Re: Post your current thoughts thread

Nah, I hate 360's ads when they try to be quirky and funny. Thankfully, they usually just play clips from the game. Give me SEGA ads or give me in-game footage any day.

Yeah, Marcus is pretty lame.

You're telling me. I was talking to my younger cousins a while back (one is 18, the other is about 15) and one was getting a PS3. I told him he should get Yakuza and was telling him about it and he said.
"Oh that reminds me of this really great game on Xbox, it was awesome. You were in Japan or China and you could talk to everyone and explore everything and do martial arts. It was amazing!"
ME: Do you mean... Shenmue II?
"YEAH! That game, it was the best!"
then the younger one said
"SHenmue!? I loved that game, it was awesome!"

Yakuza 3 was the first game they bought for the PS3  :afroman:

Hey guys I'm back.

I had a quite traumatic vacation with friends.. I kinda end up breakin with my girl and stuff for at least a while. We're gonna be just friends until we sort some things out in our own separate lives.
I had to make some heavy decisions, so I took the opportunity to set some goals in my life and do things in a reasonable way.
I stressed out quite a bit, but had some friends helpin and I got through my problems.

I just need to fill my mind with stuff right now. So I joined a gym, started taking driving lessons and bought lots of furniture at Ikea. I'm redecorating my room.

A lot of change is going on in my life right now and I have not had the time to come here and talk to you guys in a while..

Perfect, just as I was about to start up Resident Evil 5 to play the new downloadable content. I get an error screen saying that my disc is unreadable.

Puzzled I turned the disc around and I see some freaky black blotches on the edge of the disc.

It is probably humidity, which means that Game might not repair it.

I freaked out and made checked all my game discs one by one, they were all fine. Apparentely only Resident Evil 5 was the unlucky one.

Be careful though, burned discs wear out your Dreamcast pretty bad. I've switched to full-legal with my DC, except for one or two rare games. She still breaks down sometimes..

Also new rules made actual serious discussions get locked at the first sight of trouble.

I stopped going there a long time, the Sonic Games section is too big of a section to keep up with, though I was responsible for one the largest topics there at the time which was the Sonic 2006 topic. It had about 500 pages of posts.

Looking back now, I wasn't expecting the game to generate that much debate, considering how bad it turned out. But I was drinking the kool-aid back then...

SONIC BLASTMAN!

And what you mean NON-CANONICAL. It is pretty obvious Sonic and Sonia and Manic have been looking for their mother ever since the first Sonic game. The part in the end of the game where Sonic takes out his 6-string and rocks out to the sound of So Much More was epic.

Also, Knuckles should always wear a hat.

-the introduction of the green saber would be weakened as we've already seen it

I dunno about surgery... It sounds like getting hair plugs/transplants would be painful and probably not a permanent solution, or it would be noticable.
Then  again I haven't really done all that much research into it, I think I would rather just shave it off myself though.

I wonder what it's like to be 20+.
You realize you aren't immortal, you feel like your actually ageing in a bad way, you start to get aches and pains, You realize every year you are less likely to have sex with a virgin, girls you knew in school now have children,  you no longer want to run everywhere... or anywhere... You die a little inside.

But you can drink yourself retarded so everything equals out.

When you get older, you feel like the days and weeks go by faster than ever, and I can only picture it getting much worse as I get even older.

While I have no major regrets, there are things I already will never be able to accomplish because I messed up, did not plan something as good as I should have or just was not aware of at the time. That is just all part of life, and I am sure we will all be fine in the end.

The dude's at GameTrailer's Bonus Round are dicks.

In a preview on new IPs, Vanquish talk was almost 90% rant on Sega's marketing.
Michael Patcher even used EA as an example with pre-order bonuses, Best Buy panflets,etc. "If it was EA doing it says..."

First off, Sega announced way back in July, an exclusive pre-order bonus deal with Gamestop, the single largest video game retailers in the United States. That's not enough for you? Mad World also got ads put up by Gamestop. And they are confident Epic Mickey will sell?

Bayonetta was also heavily adverstised on UFC, that kinda looks like the right crowd for an item such as this.

Can you imagine a Best Buy employee handing out panflets with a voluptuous witch without looking like a creepy pervert?

"Everyone should be treated the same" is a load of bull. Acknowledging that some differences might be shortcomings and work over them is the way to go.

I once read (it might have been an hypothetical story, but still interesting) that a lady had a job at a library. She would climb up the ladder and get them books to the people. Sadly, she later lost the ability to walk and was confined to a wheelchair.
Since she couldn't really do her job now, the library managers decided to let her go and get someone else for the job.
She sued the library, claiming she wanted to be treated exactly the same and that they should construct infrastructures in order for her to keep her job.

Personally I think this situation is insane.

We should have same respect for everyone, yes. But people can't all be treated equally since everyone is different.

It is nothing like that. It isn't about ethnicity. It's about a physical aspect. They are simply too fat for the chairs. If it were me they wouldn't even be allowed to sit and risk breaking a chair.
Overweightness is a physical limitation. Fat people can't expect to have everything the same way as slim people.

Apparently the issue is not that they do not fit in the chairs, since the customers are still being serviced for a fee. I just think if the people are getting the same care and obviously have the 'ability' to provide this care for them, its a bit stupid to charge extra.

I mean, as a business person.

In the case of fatty vs skinny asian, I side with skinny asian in that the owner should not have to refit their entire salon with chairs that are made for folks 250lbs or more. If folks of massive size and weight wish to use the salon's equipment, such as sitting in chairs, the owner should have the right to charge extra in the event that the chair breaks or have them sign a contract stating that if the chair breaks it is their own fault and not the fault of the owner.  

If US law changes and obesity is deemed the same as race, religion or sexual orientation the country would go to shit. Every chair in America would have to be altered to suit folks who are twice as wide as the average person. City transportation would be sued, airlines would be sued, public places of leisure would be sued, private businesses would be sued. It would be chaos. Seating space that once was made for 100 people will be cut down to 50 just because each seat had to be altered to fit a larger frame. With populations rising, I think the last thing the country needs is seating capacity being cut down to suit the obese. Rather the money that would be used for chairs should be used for fitness programs and dietary education.

Title: Re: Post your current thoughts thread
Post by: Barry the Nomad on August 24, 2010, 09:14:56 am
Personally, I think it's totally cool if a taller larger person takes part of a second seat, I mean you can't expect them to do anything else. Tall folks can't help their height and body weight ratio any more than a black person can their skin color or a male or female can their gender. In fact I'd back a tall person who was having issues with public transit or airline seats. Those things really don't give any leg room.

Thing is, there's a difference between a person who is tall and in turn their body weight matches their stature and a person who is short and is round like a plum because they eat too much. Living in Philadelphia, one of the fatter cities in America (#15 on the list with a D rating), I encounter people all the time who are shorter than me (I'm 5'7") and are extremely fat and wide. They sit next to me and usually their thigh and hips encroach on my seat. Not fun. Compare this to my home of Minneapolis, MN (#88 on the list with a B+ rating). Growing up I'd see tall big people, of course, but when it came to shorter folks or average height folks very rarely would I see people who were obese. So quite clearly obesity is something that CAN be helped, and it seems the people in Minnesota know how to keep fit much better than the people in Philadelphia. I blame the cheesesteaks.

If she's running the salon in the southern United States instead of a small east Asian country, then she should consider buying new equipment. The obesity statistics in these states are around 30% of the total population or above.

http://www.cdc.gov/obesity/data/trends.html (http://www.cdc.gov/obesity/data/trends.html)

Living in Philadelphia, one of the fatter cities in America (#15 on the list with a D rating), I encounter people all the time who are shorter than me (I'm 5'7") and are extremely fat and wide. They sit next to me and usually their thigh and hips encroach on my seat. Not fun. Compare this to my home of Minneapolis, MN (#88 on the list with a B+ rating). Growing up I'd see tall big people, of course, but when it came to shorter folks or average height folks very rarely would I see people who were obese. So quite clearly obesity is something that CAN be helped, and it seems the people in Minnesota know how to keep fit much better than the people in Philadelphia. I blame the cheesesteaks.

Not always the case. Sometimes, especially in regions with many of them it could just be their genes half of the time. Fat parents have fat children etc.

eBay question for y'all:

I bought a DVD on ebay the seller swore up and down in his listing that he is 100% legit, no bootlegs and had 100% ratings. So I bought the DVD. Just got it today and it is a clear bootleg. Colors are off, everything looks scanned, discs are poorly printed, colors are missing from the outer sleeve that legit copies have. Biggest sign: it's region free yet is labeled region 1. It's a Simpsons DVD so I doubt it would ever be region free.

I contacted the seller and he was acting oblivious, apologized but said he does not sell bootlegs. I don't believe him as he clearly sells multiple copies of these things, claiming they are "used and in near mint condition". They weren't used, they were new but opened as they were never sealed to begin with. He offered me to send the DVD back for a refund. Thing is the set cost $15, and return shipping is a half hour at the post office and $5 postage. Am I better off simply keeping it and reporting the guy? Or should I return it and then report it?

I saw the Scott Pilgrim movie and played the demo of the game... I was really disappointed with both. The movie was enjoyable enough, but I cannot see myself watching it again. The game I was really pumped for and love the style, but I really hate leveling up in these kinds of games and the block button is just a hassle... Oh, and no online co-op? FUFKUFUFCC

I was really expecting to be a huge fan of this stuff, so I was pretty surprised. I might give the game another shot when it is the deal of the week though.

It's a good model. Not official, obviously, but if you let it sit in one place and not dangle or stacked under stuff it works well. Also, the RGB switcher is a nice addition. I see these all over the place online, so I'll bet you'd find one in time.

Just 199 more to go to get Sonic and the Black Knight!

That trailer for Back to the Future on Blu-Ray really made me want to watch the trilogy again. I was thinking about it the other day and that is pretty much a big sign telling me I should.

Speaking of Xbox 360, did you guys see the new controller?

[youtube:3els70sk]-nJCn5F66nA[/youtube:3els70sk]

That is such a strange alternative... I think most people would not have even considered that idea. But why get rid of the colors? Why is this only available with the Play & Charge Kit? Why are they just now fixing stuff like the sticks and dpad? Why was this recorded in someones garage? WHY WHY WHY?!?
Title: Re: Post your current thoughts thread
Post by: crackdude on August 31, 2010, 11:52:32 pm
The colors have always confused me, cause the Dreamcast colors were all mixed up another way. No other controller uses colors so I don't see the problem.

I hope Sony comes out with a better controller as well.
Title: Re: Post your current thoughts thread
Post by: Sega Uranus on September 01, 2010, 01:48:08 am
The only controller that does not have colors is Wii stuff. Before that it was like... the Super Nintendo probably, and even the Japanese version of that had different colored buttons.

A lot of games now have color coordinated actions. I cannot think of a game off the top of my head, but I remember playing some stuff on the Xbox 360 that would use the colors of the buttons for hints of what color you need to use for a specific areas. Extremely clever idea.

EDIT: Oh I know Sonic Unleashed had minor ones. The blue button (X) was supposed to make a blue blur, the red button (B) was for feet related things and the yellow button (Y) was used for doing the light dash on rings. Pretty neat.

It certainly is. It's still considered the best D-Pad ever made. I can't believe nobody has matched/surpassed it yet. It can't be THAT hard to copy can it?

In any event, the colours for the Xbox 360 pad are quite good I think. A is Green for Go, B is Red for 'Stop' (seeing as it's usually the 'back' button).

I never ever saw that controller before though, all I've seen were those Piano Black ones for the new console.

As for current thoughts: Man, working for a big company can be exhausting. So much beurocracy (I can't be fucked checking the spelling of that).

About the new 360 pad:

The new d-pad is a novel idea! Looks better than the current one.

HOWEVER...

What. The. Fuckity. Were they thinking in losing the controller colors? They are essential to game tutorial screens and QTE's. If a game shows a red circle with a tiny "B", I'm going to see the red before I ever see the tiny "B". Stupid stupid decision. Not buying.
Title: Re: Post your current thoughts thread
Post by: crackdude on September 01, 2010, 08:38:36 am
What?
Only the Dreamcast and Xbox controllers have ever given colors an important role in controllers.

AND WHAT THE FUCK:
"If a game shows a red circle with a tiny "B", I'm going to see the red before I ever see the tiny "B". Stupid stupid decision. Not buying."
You haven't remembered the positions yet? If you see red on the screen do you look down to see where it is? If not, then WHAT MATTERS if it has colors or not.

You guys are seeming so retarded over this. And it's a common reaction I've seen around the web.

Seriously, does ANY of you even LOOK at the controller during gameplay?
And if so, how did you survive playing MegaDrive and Saturn without colors?
Title: Re: Post your current thoughts thread
Post by: Barry the Nomad on September 01, 2010, 09:26:42 am
Sonic Unleashed's and Shenmue 2's QTE's were moments when the button colors were important to me. Also, candy colored buttons make me think of the Dreamcast... gray toned buttons make me think of Death...

Yeah I do not know what you mean by this Barry. The colors in the game will not change, just the controller itself. I doubt this is going to be the standard. I think the next console will have that dpad though.

As for the Saturn dpad, it was one of the biggest around. You cannot really emulate this one perfectly as the space on most controllers now are very limited because you need room for both that and an analog stick, not to mention the back button and Xbox Guide button too.

Title: Re: Post your current thoughts thread
Post by: Barry the Nomad on September 01, 2010, 10:49:08 am
What I'm saying is that why take out an important piece of visual information (that being the button colors) and replace them with bland gray tones? The button colors are referenced in the UI and in-game, so why remove them from the controller?

An important part of branding is too keep the brand consistent. Even with the new 360, they maintained the basic shape of the console so that the loading icon on the hub would match both the old model and the new model.

My only thought as to why they went gray scale is that this is MS's small attempt at reaching out the the hardcore crowd. With Kinect on the way, I'll bet they wanted to revamp the d-pad for the 1337 players and gave the gray tone to the buttons to strip the controller of the "family friendly" look.
Title: Re: Post your current thoughts thread
Post by: crackdude on September 01, 2010, 10:52:02 am
That won't happen Barry.
Yes, this is an hardcore-oriented pad. I doubt casuals will bother about the D-Pad. But it won't be the norm. New consoles will always come with the standard controllers.

Dreamcast:
A - Red
B - Blue
X - Yellow
Y - Green

$box 360:
A - Green
B - Red
X- Blue
Y- Yellow

Dat Triple:
X - Blue
O - Red
Parallelogram - Pink
Triangle - Green

I will never ever ever memorize the PS controller buttons, both in color and symbol placement. I think it has to do with my internal wiring. I am shit at Parappa and Umjammer and yet I've logged hundreds of hours on my PS2.

As for the XBOX colors, having memorized the Dreamcast I mess up quite a bit. The Tornado mini-game in Unleashed was murder.

DC is perfect as they grouped A/B with corresponding colors Red/Blue and X/Y with corresponding colors Yellow/Green. Also, the placement makes sense as it perfectly matches a color wheel:

(http://http://img155.imageshack.us/img155/1076/dreamcastcontroller.jpg)

SEGA = perfection

Then XBOX decided to copy from the best, but had to make alterations to avoid lawsuits. I guess I see what they tried to do, by placing corresponding colors across from one another rather than next to each other, but in my opinion it doesn't work. WHat they should have done was taken a queue from the Dreamcast and simply rotated the color wheel, making A/B Green/Yellow and X/Y Blue/Red.

See, it's almost there but not quite:

NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO

FUCKING

NO

Sorry, but that controller is okay, but it's a monumental piece of shit d-pad compared to the Saturn one. As someone who owns both and plays fighters on both, I can honestly say the Saturn one is leagues ahead of that still. It's better than the Xbox 360 standard D-pad, but not as good as the Saturn one.
Don't take offense by the way Crackdude, anger isn't aimed at you, it's aimed at the pad.

There is a reason top players are still modding Saturn pads to use with PS3 rather than using those fight pads.

Quote
Then XBOX decided to copy from the best, but had to make alterations to avoid lawsuits. I guess I see what they tried to do, by placing corresponding colors across from one another rather than next to each other, but in my opinion it doesn't work. WHat they should have done was taken a queue from the Dreamcast and simply rotated the color wheel, making A/B Green/Yellow and X/Y Blue/Red.

Actually Barrington, I have to respecfully disagree here. I found the 360 pad to be much better with colour placement, for the aforementioned 'Green = Go, Red = Stop' connotation. I know that A is always used to progress and B is always used to stop.


In any event:

Well, don't let me talk you out of it completely, I was just saying it's no where near the quality of a Saturn D-Pad, but overall I was pretty happy with my purchase. It works well for non-fighter games on XBLA, and it also works on all PCs so you can use it to play Mega Drive and Saturn Emulators!

Some girls are just pretty idiots.

I asked this girl to come to my house for a 3-day party. She's underage so she called up her mom and stuff. She got her mother's consent and everything was arranged so that she comes tonight and leaves sunday morning. I buy all the food and stuff for her stay.
Today she calls me up sayin' she'll leave tomorrow so that she (get this)can prove to her mother that she's responsible enough not to stay more than a night so that next time her mother allows her to stay longer.

As for the show, I also didn't like the first 2 eps much, was doubting my purchase until about half way through the second episode (or whichever one had Prez, Carver and Herc cause that riot in the low-rise).

I got back from a day at the drag strip watching Top Fuelers. Those things are insanely powerful. 5000 HP, fire breathing monsters that shake the concrete grand-stands when they shoot past, it was unreal. When we were at the finishing line watching them start, they were about 100 meters down the track before we heard the engine noise.
Holy shit.

Then we went to a steak-house. It was awesome.

I'm not going to the big gaming convention this weekend because none of my lazy cheap friends want to go. Oh sure, they'll drive to my house for pizza and movies, but when it comes to driving an hour and spending $10 admission, it's too much for them! Friends suck. I'd go alone, but 2 hours in a car and walking around is incredibly lame by yourself.

Next time a friend wants a favor, I'll say "I'm too busy and am short on cash dude! Sorry!"

Holy cow. It seems like you have some really bad friends. =/ Do you actually buy the pizza for them? No splitting the bill? 'Cause yeah, it appears that they have no problem taking advantage of you.

What gaming convention was it, anyway? I bet I totally would've gone with! ^__^

Guys, its not really their fault.

Not everyone is interested to drive 1 hour, spend some bucks, and look at games. I could totally see they rejecting that.

Driving to someones house that is few minutes away and having a party is much easier.

Actually, one hour isn't that bad a drive at all. I have to drive an hour and a half to visit with my family. Also, $10 is really inexpensive for a con... That's why I'm wondering what convention it was. If it's a full-fledged one, then they're missing out. Cons are a lot of fun. ^__^

Barry, I say you try going alone and meeting people to hang out with while you're there. Nerds in general are very relaxed and easy to get along with, but gamers especially have a common interest that they can sit down and bond over. I think you still might enjoy yourself. =)

PS3 is def a better offline console. While its online gameplay is good, it is not 'constant' with all titles. Like, Modern Warfare 2 and Uncharted 2's online play is very good, as good as 360 (outside of cross game chat). Other titles feel like complete shit.

I suppose that one of the very, very few advantages of living in the southern United States is that the winters aren't nearly as harsh as anywhere up north. Aside from last winter (when El Niño was acting up), we rarely ever have much in the way of snow. ^^;

Since we're on the subject, I lived in Penafiel, a little town up North, it's situated in a valley called Vale de Sousa.

It has one major issue, in the Summertime, it gets way too hot and in the winter it gets way too cold. It's easy to catch a cold up north.

Now that I've been living in a coastal city for over a year, I can safely say that it's much nicer, because it's never too hot and never too cold.

Just got back from a concert "These Kids Wear Crowns" opened for.
They played here in town on their first tour last year, and I think there were like 20 people, including myself that showed up.  Completely unknown band, opening for a barely known band, playing in a very small venue, in a smaller city (80 000 people).  Thing is, they were really good.  My friend and I chatted with them a bit after their set, and picked up some t-shirts and their EP.

Afterwards, we subscribed to their fan-run twitter feed, and spent the last year getting others into them.  This summer they got a spot on a Canadian battle of the bands type show, and ended up winning. Last month, they put out their first major label single, and have a video playing on Much Music (Canadian version of what MTV used to be like).

After their set tonight, we stopped by the merch booth where the bass player/singer was being pretty much mobbed by girls of various ages to get their picture taken with them.  He saw that my friend and I had shirts on from their first tour, recognized us, and invited us backstage.  We all had a good chat for the duration of the second act's set.  I guess they only made 50 of the t-shirt that I had, so he said he was really surprised to see it. Got some info on when their new album's due, and what'll be on it.  Then he gave us is contact info, so we can all get together whenever they're in the area.

Good times :)

After carefull consideration, I have concluded that it's simply not worth the time and effort to pursue a Dreamcast VGA Cable, for starters, the few stores that still sell them are way too pricey and Dreamcast VGA only supports up to 640x480, a resolution so low that my Asus LCD monitor may not even support it.

So I'm just gonna call it quits.

I feel like converting a really terrible portuguese song into english...

This song is from Zé Cabra.

I left everything for her. I did... I did...
I left everything for her. I know... I know...

I left everything I wanted, I left everything for her.

I stopped watching movies,
I stopped watching soccer,
I stopped going to the beach,
I stopped seeing the sun,

Na,na,na,na,na(This is actually part of the lyrics)... because she though it was OK.

(repeat)

We should have more Portugal moments here.

After all there was another one
And I without knowing a thing, smiled

And for him I walked around crazy
To be his wife, someday

After all there was another one
A family, a home, a house

And after all I was
The spare time love

Who the fuck said "Sorry to hear about your site. I hope everything works out." to TSSZ on the SEGAbits twitter? Looks like somebody here wasn't informed that tssz is a ball of shit masquerading as a news site. Honestly, I'm glad they got hacked and hope it happens again.

edit: to clarify, I'm not pissed off at whoever showed kindness towards tssz (I assume it was Sharky or George), I just find it mind boggling that there are still people out there who Tristan hasn't made enemies with. his "article" on the hacking includes, for no reason but to stir up trouble, a dig at TSS writer Shadzter who is an all around awesome guy, i think he even joined the forums not too long ago. Shadz suffers from chronic fatigue syndrome, and Tristan thinks it's fun to include an insult about the disorder any chance he can get. It's just low, and makes Tristan come off as a cunt. Lest we not forget all the times TSSZ ignored C&D's from sega and how they remove any comments that might be critical of their site. Hell, I pointed out that he didn't cite TSS in an article and the dude banned me. Of course, he had to slip in an Shadzter insult even though he had nothing to do with me mentioning TSSZ's mistake.

Anyway, tl;dr version: TSSZ is a waste of internet space.

I'm not the biggest fan of TSSZ, but having a site hacked sucks. Its his work, it was not just his site but his personal stuff. He has attacked Sharky and our site before, but the act of kindness had nothing to do with his content or site really.

Giving him comments like "I hope you burn in hell and your site is hacked again" and actually hacking his site, causes drama, thus fueling traffic to his site. I rather have the SEGA community ignore him and not cause drama. Thus his site wouldn't have to exist.

But Christopher Nolan will be the Producer so I'm hoping we'll get a good Superman film. It would be really cool to see someone like Braniac or Metallo or even Darkseid as the villain! Lex Luthor is a great antagonist for Superman but it's about time they use someone else for feature films.

Producers do a lot less than you would think. Many times it is just a title that people take to seem important while not doing anything, like what Iizuka does now.

Still, whatever this turns out to be... It will be a billion times better than that movie that had a scene where Superman's dog Krypto fights Lex Luthor's in space...

I'm a little divided over this. I honestly think he won't be that bad for a Superman movie, even though he's probably not the best.

He did Watchmen quite well (Except for the action scenes which were far too over the top for Watchmen I felt.), and stuck to the comic as close as he could in a world run by producers.

I think that the movie, if nothing else, will at least have great visuals and hopefully he can capture that magic Superman has in comics like 'All Star Superman' and 'Kingdom Come'.

I also hope that Kevin Spacey returns as Luthor, but for once make him the more threatening/darker Corporate/Super Genius Luthor who is determined to kill Superman to 'save mankind'. I want to see that hatred of Superman and the determination to destroy him rather than just the usual "i'm going to rule the world!" bit.

I hope they bring back Brandon Routh. As much crap as Superman Returns gets, I thought that he was great in it.

I can't remember it all that well, but I do remember thinking he did a good job. I particularly liked his "I hope this doesn't put you off of flying, it's statistically safer than driving"

One time I took the elevator after college and all of a sudden, the elevator got stuck, with the door sliding open, only to reveal a WALL! I panicked, thinking I was trapped, and hit the Alarm button a couple of times before the elevator opened again and got out of here, thanks to a random guy. I should take the stairs from now on, seeing as how a small elevator mishap is somehow a reference to the movie Devil :shock:.

I was a little high on cold medicine this morning while watching the news of the Chilean miners.

It sounds wrong now, but at 6am it was very funny.

I was in a Databases lecture today. I wasn't paying any attention to the class, instead browsing the internets and reading my RSS feeds. This news about the new Halo Reach map pack appeared and I opened the link, which said in fat letters NOBLE MAP PACK FOR HALO REACH or something. Almost as soon as I opened the page, a girl on the row behind me asked me what was the news about, adding she is a massive Halo addict. We exchanged a few words about games. No Sonic 4 chatter fortunately. She touched the computer too.

Current thoughts: Odds of a woman liking Halo of all things and starting a conversation over that. Wat.

I still don't like the blue cases, but the rest i enjoy! even the load times that have been hyped up are minimal, I hardly notice them. looking forward to BTTF. I am a blu-ray hater no more. :D

As for Clone Wars, I recommend it! The theatrical movie isn't too hot, but definitely rent season 1 and 2. Lots of good season 1 episodes, especially: Rookies, Lair of Grievous and the Ryloth trilogy. Nearly all of season 2 is at the quality of those season 1 episodes.

edit: when is the double tie coming into style? We only have 5 more years!

So today I bought a chili con carne, which was supposed to be super hot. In fact it came with a real warning lol. Now I ate two portions of it. I really like hot food, granted by the second plate of it my nose was running and i needed to drink milk with it... But frankly it was enjoyable and was far from 'too hot' for me. The girlfriend on the other hand had about 3 mouthfuls and gave up.
 
So here I am, about 8 hours later... Nature calls... (It’s a number 2!)

 OMFG...  fire and brimstone!

The warning on the label should have specifically said 'if it doesn't get you on the way in, it'll sure get you on the way out'
 
How can I even restore the PH balance of my arse? I cant drink milk through it!

 My arse looks like the Japanese flag right now!

I accepted a bet to eat two ghost peppers (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Naga_Jolokia_pepper (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Naga_Jolokia_pepper)) earlier this year. To quote wikipedia, "In 2007, Guinness World Records certified the Naga Jolokia as the world's hottest chili pepper, 400 times hotter than Tabasco sauce."  I didn't know this at the time.

I'm also a huge fan of spicy food, but this was no fun.  Just really painful burning, and an intense stabbing feeling in my stomach that reduced me to a fetal position several times later on that day.
Let's just say when it came to "Round 2", it came out black.  For 2 days.....

As far as dealing with "second stage pain", the only advice I can give is to use a warm, moist cloth after post dump, and the pain will go away in a couple days.

Just came back from a four day vacation in Dublin, in the land of the emerald aisle.

In short, Dublin city centre looks like the largest shopping mall in the world, the full irish breakfast was kickass, Temple Bar Pub was fun, the Guiness Factory is also a pretty sight. Had fun talking to some norwegian girls on my last day there.

The only downside: Only fast food restaurants are cheap and everything and I mean everything closes at 6 pm sharp, hostel service was a downer, a drunken guy smeared my face with sallad dressing and we got stuck in the airport this morning for about a hour and a half due to french air traffic restrictions.

Dark Knight Rises? Eeehh.

It uses 'Dark Knight' from the last film and just adds rises.

Should use something from comic that it will be based on. LIke Knightfall, Knightend? How about just Batman: Gotham City?
Title: Re: Post your current thoughts thread
Post by: Aki-at on October 27, 2010, 06:29:34 pm
Considering this is the last Batman film (Or under Nolan's direction) Gotham Rises would probably be the best name I think.
Title: Re: Post your current thoughts thread
Post by: SOUP on October 27, 2010, 06:43:14 pm
Makes sense as a title.
"The Dark Knight" is the name of the movie that did obscenely well at the box office. Count on that name recognition, as well as paying homage to the Frank Miller stories (Dark Knight Returns, Dark Knight Strikes Back).

It's also probably a big part of the plot.  The Dark Knight was all about him being the behind the scenes protector of Gotham.  This one'll probably have something to do with him rising from the shadows to true hero status or something......I don't know.
It's only a title. Christopher Nolan's making it, so you know it's going to be good. Nothing to worry about :).

That shit is so frustrating.  :evil:


As for Dark Knight Rises, I wonder what comics it will be based on this time. Batman Begins was mainly based on Year One, Dark Knight was based around The Long Halloween, I wonder what they will do for the last. It almost certainly won't be Dark Knight Returns... Maybe Aki-at can help with candidates since he's the resident Bat-Man-Fan. I would say Hush, but that's only because it's the only other one I've read.

Hopefully they make a good World's Finest Superman/Batman crossover.

Yep, its from Joker.

Well we know two of the actors from Inception will be 'lead characters' in the new Batman.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt will be a confirmed actor and he sort of looks like the late Hedger:

Post by: Barry the Nomad on October 28, 2010, 08:34:28 am
Nolan said Riddler is not in the movie and continues to state that two-face is dead. The first I believe, the second I'm split on. Nolan's early plans for the trilogy was to have two-face return. He stated it once, then didn't talk about it for a while, then when he talked about it again he restated that two-face died in TDK. My guess is that studio execs shut him up and want to have two-face returning as a big surprise. Just a guess though.

As for the Joker, not sure if he'll return. I think Nolan is happy to keep him locked up. At least the character is alive though he'd go unseen. Best they could do is mention his status in Arkham and maybe have him pulling strings from the inside.

Personally I'd like to see two-face return and see the introduction of the Penguin, of course I'd want the new Penguin to be less freak and more aristocrat.

Nintendo posts half-year net loss, a first in seven years
By Thomas Ricker  posted Oct 28th 2010 5:07AM

After three years of record earnings, the mighty house that Mario built is reporting a net loss of ¥2.01 billion ($25 million) in the fiscal first half ending 30 September versus a profit of ¥69.49 billion a year earlier. In addition to the adverse affects suffered under a strong yen, Nintendo's sales for the first half of its fiscal year were down 35 percent to ¥363.16 billion due to lower demand for its Wii console. According to the Wall Street Journal, this represents Nintendo's first net loss in the fiscal first half in the last seven years. The future outlook is pretty grim too with Nintendo forecasting an annual profit drop to the lowest level in six years as Wii console sales decline for the second year in a row. Ouch.

Post by: SOUP on October 28, 2010, 08:52:48 am
After Batman Begins, I remember Nolan and Goyer mentioning a basic outline of the second and third movies. It was basically this:
Movie 2, Joker is the villian, Harvey Dent helps bring him down.
Movie 3, Joker scars Dent at the beginning of the movie while at trial for his crimes, Two-Face is the villian.

The thing is, they combined it all in the second movie to make Dent the big character.  I've read in interviews that Nolan wants to wrap everything up in this movie. In a way that you can't really do in comics, because the story never stops going.

I don't think Bane, Killer Croc, or Poison Ivy are going to be in it, just because Nolan wants to go as realistic as possible.

Honestly, they'll probably go with whatever villain fits the kind of story they're trying to tell, as opposed to picking a villain and writing a story around them.
I could see Catwoman being in there somewhere. Mostly because there's got to be some female lead involved.

^If he really wants to go the realistic route, Penguin could probably fit nicely. I think in more recent times he's just been an eccentric mob boss rather than being a wacky bird-man thing.

Maybe something relating to Hush?

Oh and Ulala5, Bane was in a movie, but I think everyone is trying to forget about it...

I don't Nolan is too crazy about re-casting Joker, apparentely Chris Nolan was shocked at Ledger's death and he doesn't intend to revisit the character.

Now, as far as a villain, I'm surprised it's not The Riddler, that would be the next logical conclusion considering the events of TDK.

I hope that they don't bring back Two-Face, it would be like pulling a Spiderman 3-esque plot twist out of thin air.

They already did Ra's Al Ghul, so that's the another other high profile Batman villain that I can think of. And Scarecrow.

So that would leave Penguin(doubtful), Black Mask, The Mad Hatter(doubftul), Bane and Catwoman.

Well even though everything is different than what is used to for the main series, Penguin is technically dead because when he was Danny DeVito he died or something. PR guys told me this is related so I have complete proof!

When Danny DeVito comes back to life I am going to marry him so we can get all of the benefits one would expect with a marriage. However, it will not work out and we will talk about a divorce, but then I see the elephant drawing he made for me and rethink my plan of action.

I don't know how interesting some of those would be for as the main antagonist for the whole movie.  I'm pretty sure Catwoman would be in there, but there's got to be somebody else. I'd second your pick for Black Mask, and MadeMang's mention of Hush as being in the mix too.

Speaking of Batman villians again, was Black Mask ever a big deal in the comics? I've heard his name thrown around a lot as a potential baddie for the movie and upcoming game, but never heard of him at all before reading his bio in Arkham Asylum. I think he's a cool sounding villian and fits the universe of Nolan's Batman, but he just seems kind of low-profile. That might be a good thing though, I do love when people take low-profile characters and do something great with them. They might be able to include Deadshot as his hit-man or something. I think he would work really well after reading up on him on wiki
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deadshot (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deadshot)
Quote
Within the DC Universe, Deadshot is often a hired assassin, regularly boasting to "never miss." He is capable of using a large variety of weapons, but is most frequently portrayed as using a pair of silenced, wrist-mounted guns. He initially appears in Gotham City as a new crimefighter, but is revealed to be an enemy of Batman when he attempts to replace the Dark Knight. He is sent to jail when Batman and Commissioner Gordon publicly expose his plot to become the king of Gotham's underworld.[1]

@MadeManG74

To be honest, I myself didn't hear much from Black Mask, it wasn't until the most recent Detective Comics, Batman and Catwoman issues that Black Mask turned into a major villain and the defacto mob boss in Gotham.

I endorse Catwoman in this, if only because Selina Kyle was rumoured at one point to be Carmine Falcone's niece.

Black Mask isn't a huge villain in Batman, but he could make a good secondary villain in the movie.
The main reason I'd go with Catwoman over Harley Quinn, is just so that there's a love interest for Batman.

There are a few dtp and image editing jobs floating around the net, otherwise I might have to do admin at my brothers workplace for a while.

They are taking on staff in advertising on the floor above me, I'll be creating ads for the paper instead of designing the pages but it'll at least still be creative.

Good Luck Monkerooney, I know how it feels to lose your job through no fault of your own. Hopefully it ends up working out well for you. I'm now in a far, far better job than I was at the last place, so I hope you find something you enjoy!

Thanks!

To be honest I would like to start creating ads, even if it will most likely involve a pay drop- the last day for people applying for the role is this Friday so hopefully they'll give me an interview!

My old boss has spoken with the head of advertising and hopefully put in a good word or two.

My brother-in-law (as well as most of my family) is expecting me to write a letter with words of encouragement for my father before his "Walk to Emmaus".

What is a "Walk to Emmaus", you say? Here, read for yourself:

Quote
The Walk to Emmaus is a spiritual renewal program intended to strengthen the local church through the development of Christian disciples and leader. The Walk to Emmaus experience begins with a 72 hour short course in Christianity, comprised of fifteen talks by lay and clergy on the themes of God's grace, disciplines of Christian discipleship, and what it means to be the church. The course is wrapped in prayer and meditation, special times of worship and daily celebration of Holy Communion.
By the way, this is going to be a surprise for my dad. He doesn't know he's going to be participating yet... that is if they can make him be willing to participate. This just doesn't *seem* like something my dad would do, unless he felt like he HAD to - and then he'd only do it begrudgingly. He's far too anti-social to volunteer for this kind of thing, really. But, organized religion does have a habit of pressuring people into doing things they don't want to.

I honestly don't know what to write. If you noticed the phrase "intended to strengthen the local church" in the description, then all this seems like it's going to be is a brainwashing session of the church exercising its control over its members. There's no chance something like this would make the attendees "closer to God". If I recall correctly, the scriptures say that just by believing in God, you're already as close to Him as you're going to get in this world. God isn't going to look at my dad in extra favor just because he spends an extra weekend worshiping Him. For this group to believe that it would only means that they carry a self-righteous ego, which is something I'm sure that Jesus would not approve of. Therefore, its only purpose must be to have the church demonstrate its dominance over the daily lives of its people.

All it adds up to is a colossal waste of time. I'm tempted to tell him to just go home and enjoy some nice football games instead. He can pray on his own time and on his own terms, and forget about these cult-like Christian groups.

Bold: I guess you don't recall correcly at all then ;P

But as for the rest... meh.
I don't think your "conspiracy theory" is really true. Jesus used to gather huge groups of people too. Nor do I think the church has intentions of dominance.. more like money. They must be getting some Gs for this, and that indeed would not please Jesus.
Also, "strengthen the local church" doesn't quite sound like spiritual renewal. More like "let's feed you bunch of crap so that you go to church more often".

So yeah, I agree with you.. There are better ways of pleasing God (if you believe in Him) and clearing up your thoughts (regardless), which don't involve some church trying to get some bucks outta people's stress.

Yeah, Samus has lengthy monologues in Fusion, and interacts with her CO. You really got to see her thoughts and feelings about her past and what was currently happening.
And as I said, we've seen the type of person Samus is since the ending of Metroid II.
I just find it funny how so many people are whining about Samus in Other M when her personality has been shown in many previous games.

Wow, there's a bit of a double standard going on in Microsoft Japan.

They have put up with Tecmo's oversexualized fighting game DOA and it's even more sexualized fanservice spin-off DOA Xtreme 2, but this Gal Gun shooter is suddenly too much?

It's probably a publicity stunt, though.

Gal Gun has way worse stuff than those games. You can shoot milk at the girls, and you get extra points if you hit the lowest part of their panties. It also has very, very young girls in it.

Thus why it's a sequel. They knew that people wouldn't be drawn in by the same level of raunchiness twice, so they had to up the ante.

For the third Bayonetta game, they're going to forgo gameplay altogether and just have porn. xD

Well thanks for the concern! Haha, yeah sometimes fighting games can get a bit intense, but usually it's a good kind of intense. I usually just play against friends so I don't really get riled up, but it's still competitive.

Fallout is even better, just wander the wastelands discovering new stuff.

Haven't done a jigsaw puzzle in a long while though.

In any event, today was much, much better than yesterday, everything actually went quite smoothly, and tomorrow is Friday! Boo Yah!

So... impressions on the first footage of the GL movie?

Personally, while I was surprised at first, they seriously picked the footage that made it look like some comedy and the fact that Blake Lively is mentioned before the lead actor kinda tells that they(ET) aren't serious about this.

Having said that, I hope they tweak those special effects for the next 6 months, cause it looks a little cartoony.

Just finished taking down all the decorations from a big Christmas fundraiser put on by the Lung Association of Ontario.

Driving loads of boxes and risers from the hotel/conference centre was pretty perilous. The weather here's gotten particularly nasty.  Snow to freezing rain = black ice everywhere.

Thursday! Not long until the weekend, where I'll probably once again just stay home and play Vidya games. Not that I'm complaining, since i do all my going out on weeknights it seems.

This Tuesday I went out with friends to dinner, then last night I was at a Michael Jackson party for the launch of the new game and album, so now I've got two (probably busy) days of work and by friday I'll be ready to pass out at 9PM in front of the Xbox.

Oh yes, hopefully I can get some perspex by the weekend so I can finish working on my Arcade Stick that has just been a cube for a fortnight.

So a couple days ago the most awkward situation arose.

There I was at my University's library, studying with a friend of mine for the then upcoming Mathematical Analysis exam (which went down horribly by the way).
Out of the bloody blue, my ex-girlfriend comes in with a colleague of hers (not her boyfriend, if she has one).

So she comes over me and gives me a two-kiss compliment (normal hello in Portugal). She asks if she can stay there. I'm baffled! "Sure I guess" I reply with a confused look on my face.

So for the next hour and half she just sits there listening to her classical music while the other dude is reading some book. I start to get nervous and lose my focus, so I can't concentrate on my studying.

I text my college chick cuddly friend in an attempt that she coming over might scare my ex off, but she's in class.
Meanwhile she grabs my laptop and goes facebook all over. I'm in no mood to even care.
So I get up and go to the bathroom. At this point I'm mindfucked beyond comprehension an can't figure out what the hell she's doing there!

I fresh up, and again I sit, this time with renewed confidence.
She starts small talking and stuff. We talk for about half an hour, me struggling to not spit on her face like I should. At this point my friend is up to the happening and is looking at me like "dude, what the fuck".

So she finally decides to leave (the other dude is long gone by the way). And she asks me if I may walk her out. I may say lots of shit about her, but she does know how to persuade a dude.

So after a minute long walk to the door she says something like "so I guess I'll see you around some other time.. chaau"
I'm just staring now. I have no idea what was that all about. I am mentally tired.

I go to the nearest cafe and ask for a bica (strong short expresso).

And that's my story of the week.

I'd say just confront her about it.

She wants to see that you miss her. Don't let her get what she wants. Act like her presence does not effect you and she will be miserable and leave. She will most likely act like she likes you. Women are brutal beasts.

Then I woke up and realized that he wasn't real, and those brilliant game designs weren't his - they were mine! =O So I immediately got a pen and a notepad and drew them all down. ^__^

Too Human was restarted like five times. It was not in development for a constant stream of time, there were whole years where they did not even work on it.

I think it is funny how you brought Forza Motorsport 3 in here though. The company that developed it made three games within the time between GT4 and GT5, so it is hard to compare directly. Every game has glitches, though, of course!

The last video you posted made me laugh incredibly hard.

Right on, man.

Anyway, back on topic, I was very dissapointed by that MD Play portable Genesis console, I went to Mediamarkt this afternoon and they had one of those on display for people to try it out.

And boy, did it suck badly, I learned that this was manufactured by a chinese company called AtGames which had an agreement with Sega on this, but actually trying it, the whole thing just feels off, first the games, the sound is off, the music is either too speed up or two slow downed, the Sonic & Knuckles rom was the worst, the mushroom hill stage sounded slow as heck and the ring sounds were completely different. And Golden Axe also sounded off, when hooked onto a LCD TV, it actually looks pretty bad. The Mega Drive Ultimate Collection is a GodSend compared to this.

I didn't test the ROM features for obvious reasons, but as it is I don't think it's worth the 50€ price tag.

Also, my VGA HD cable just arrived from Hong Kong and either it's damaged or it's just the way it is, because the image is horrible, either way, I hope they give me a refund or ship me one that's working properly.

I know there is bad people in all religions, but you have to question the motive of the church that doesn't punish priests that do this sort of stuff and go on to say homosexuals will burn in hell. I encourage people to believe in God, but drop Catholic religion, not even Jesus or God would approve of this shit.

Also Chrome App Store is open. Meh. Its  OK. Most is HTML5/Flash/Links to sites as 'apps'.

Get an open-source handheld like a GP2X or Pandora. I have a GP2X and I can play all mega-drive games perfectly emulated, Neo Geo, SUper Nintendo, PC games, arcade games, listen to mp3s... they're great.

@George

Ya know,I get the impression that some people haven't followed Pope Benedict at all, he has been condemning child molestation left and right and reaching out to said victims of abuse. As far as "protecting" the priests of alleged wrongdoing, the catholic church(and other organized religions), like the military(heck like just about any corporation, even), having an hierachy and an horizontal structure, handles their own insubordination from within in the same way military tribunals are used to handle problems. If there's an internal problem, then the situation has to be handled from within.´

Tutition fees going to 9,000 British pounds a year ($14,214, 10,738 EUR and just for mang $14,415) after today, looks like Labour lost, the Conservatives have won and the Liberal Dems have been chickens.

A shame, a dark day for British education. I expect our system to fall rather dramatically into the deep end overall with only a few excellent universities left in the country.

I can totally understand the college student's frustrations, however, they are wrong to think that a college degree is an entitelment, it is an investment that may or may not pay off, depending on how well you do in College.

It is not about something being an entitlement or not. And in any case, they pay that investment through general taxation if they begin to enjoy a large income. But that was not entirely my point.

Providing free education for all is beneficial to everyone in the country, it allows us to train the greatest minds ready to improve our country further and improve all the needed sectors. Having state funded courses for hair cutting is silly; having state funded courses for further education in engineering, science etc is not however.

All this will do is bring down many universities, damage our education system further and give us a fair few less graduates in the future. With a damaging recession we've just come out of, I'd expect many people having a hard time justifying going to university.

I realize it may same strange to Americans to see us complaining about tutition fees, but the fear is, and a justifiable fear too, that fees will continue to rise. Plus, we already pay a large level of taxes (Which I personally do not mind myself, not sure why people are against general taxation as long as it's put to good use)

Which they have, introduced in the late 90s, at 3,000 British pounds, then top up fees were added and now we go to a maximum of 9,000 British pounds a year. It is not exactly out of the norm to see believe it to continue to rise.

Wow, the average tuition for state-owned public colleges in Portugal is roughly 800/950 GBP/EUR year. However, the real cost of a student in said public college is roughly 2.500/3000 GBP/EUR per year, so about 75% is supported by tax payer money.

That's what's been pissing a lot of people off in Portugal, mainly because the current goverment, whom our PM makes Tony Blair look like Margeret Thatcher, has dumbed down education for one nasty reason:

To statiscally improve school drop-out percentages by dumbding down education so much that nobody flunks;

Which in turn results into colleges getting filled with people who, despite their best intentions, don't have the stomach or simply don't have the capacity to actually go through college.

Hopefully, this isn't the real issue with British colleges.

Trippy! Yeah, I got that rolly crate thing back in the early 90's. The top lid is made to hold an NES or Genesis, however with the SEGA CD attached it can't fit in there. So that space has become a garage of sorts for my Nomad and Game Gear.

I just finished watching the Spike TV VGA Awards.

Honestly, nex year, just show the trailers and have slideshows about the winners.

Because, whoever scripted that show is under the impression that gamers are 15 year-olds who just like to shoot things.

The fact that the studios awards came first, kinda proves that they have no respect for these institutions and they pretty much just nominate studios from the same country or close enough, otherwise they won't bother showing up.

Notice how all the nominees are basically the games that they talk about non-stop on Invisible Walls.

And Neil Patrick Harris... seriously?
Title: Re: Post your current thoughts thread
Post by: Sega Uranus on December 13, 2010, 01:42:47 pm
Neil Patrick Harris is awesome... You shut your mouth!

Otherwise, I completely agree. The 2010 VGAs was a complete joke - Which is not to say any year prior was ever any good. It seemed more like a bad skit show this year though I think, with a bunch of nobodies. It was really annoying how in the first hour and a half they gave out like three awards, then the last half an hour had like 12 given out in a quick slideshow... WTF??

Loved that Halo Reach violin piece though (MAJOR SPOILERS though), and the Uncharted 3 trailer really had me pumped. Otherwise, I felt bad watching the whole thing, specifically My Chemical Romance which single handedly made me never want to purchase Gran Turismo 5.

The Disc battles and Light-Cycles are the highlights of the movie for sure.

I AM BACK FROM THE DED GUYS

I haven't been able to spend some time around here lately. Now it's christmas break but I have a shitload of shit to study and compile. Life's hard now.

Quick update on my life:
-the first row of exams went on terribly well. I passed at everything with acceptable to excellent marks. Pressure is on for the final semester exams. We'll see how that goes.

-I've started going out with this girl. She is very sweet. She had a boyfriend but they broke up. How do I keep getting in the middle of these situations? Anyway, she makes me happy and I'm hoping something good comes out of this relationship.

-Holy shit. NeoGeo games on PSN.

-Since I barely have time to wipe my ass, I'm considering selling some of my games for some cash. First off I'm selling my N64 and all the games. If anyone's interested, hit me up ;)

-I'm loving the roundtable articles you guys are pumping out. Would love to be involved once I get some time.

I miss you guys. I think about you everyday ;)

Well.

All we had in the house was Vanilla chai... which i heard is really sugary.. so I figured it would be fine once.. but I want something else next time I drink tea.

Anyways. I took the advice Sharky gave me and had it with sugar and milk. Although I got a feeling I didn't leave the tea bag in the cup long enough.

It's OK, I can deal with it.

The vet is currently looking a way to see just how serious her condition is and maybe ease the pain. Hopefully, the cancer(which has mutated into a huge lump on her upper breast) hasn't reached her lungs yet and maybe they can tone it down or remove it partially. Even so, the vet told me she doesn't have much time left, regardless of the outcome.

To keep things on a negative vibe, I've been feeling pretty depressed lately for some reason. I don't really know what it is, since everything in my life has been really good to great except for one thing which has kind of been hanging over me half the year.

I think it's the fact that I'm now off work for a little while and i've just had a lot more idle time meaning I've been dwelling on it unfortunately.

Oh well, Panzer Dragoon Saga is a very good anti-depressant at least. I think it's just that I haven't been able to spend as much time with friends as I had hoped since many are working through holidays or going away for the Christmas break.

I am planning to finally work on my new arcade stick again though, so on a more positive note: Suggestions for arcade stick artwork GOGOGOGOGOGO!
Feel free to suggest any cool pictures, I can't guarantee i'll use them though!

I'm thinking about using this; Rugal is one of my favourite fighting game characters along with Mature.

As Geese Howard would say: Predictable!

Although, out of those characters I do actually sometimes use Chris, but I use Orochi Chris, not regular.

EDIT: May as well show my progress,

Here's what the parts looked like early on, I just cut the inner supports and had the perspex and MDF board for the top plate cut earlier. The box had been assembled for a while.
(http://http://i54.tinypic.com/30tqmis.jpg)


And here is is after gluing in the inner supports and drilling all the holes, placing some buttons in for place-holders and to see how it'll look. The top plate is actually perspex, but it's covered with the protective film at the moment. I'll put the art underneath the perspex so that it's got a clean finish but I can interchange the art.
(http://http://i55.tinypic.com/qogi75.jpg)

It's currently hanging in the garage with a coat of varnish, so tomorrow I'll probably be sanding it down and giving it another coat. If I have time and the inclination I may start on the soldering too. I might leave that for the weekend or next week though.

As for Storm though, I don't know what happened to him. I guess he's just been busy.

IDEA!

For each board list we should change it so that the instead of a giant S on each one it could spell out SEGA. Think about it!

S - SEGA New and Discussion
E - Eh, them sure is some old SEGA games you got there
G - GAMES, OTHER
A - Also other things

And why is the gabage puyo not being used?! It is grey already!!
Title: Re: Post your current thoughts thread
Post by: Sharky on December 31, 2010, 02:25:20 am
That did cross my mind about the gabage puyo

The reason the gabage puyo isnt being used is that, normal threads can be both 'normal topic' and 'popular topic' both need to have grey versions (to indicate no new posts) but they need to also let you know if they are popular topics or not.

I did want to use the garbage puyo but... it wasn't as useful as it first seemed.

I also, really like the expression of the Star/Crown and Moon. So needed to use them.

My arcade stick is nearly done, the varnish is drying and all the holes are drilled.

The colour scheme is going to be Red buttons for everything except Back and Start which will be red, and red Ball Top. Because of that, I want to do a Black and white background, I've been messing around with some images and monochroming them etc and I've narrowed it down to these two:

Good picture, but I'm not sure how it would look for the background of a stick. Plust I wanted the black and white thing for this one.

Virtua Fighter stuff is usually too detailed to be used a background where most of it is covered by buttons anyway.

I did consider these though:

Rockmelt, a form of Chrome is pretty sweet. Doesn't crash like Chrome use to on me.

Honestly I think all browsers have good things and bad things about them. You'll never find a browser that is perfect, because the webpage could be designed poorly or overcomplex (like facebook, which I find always has problems) and people blame their web browser for that. I say just stick to whatever you use and call it a day :)

But yeah, it's not surprising that people thing Sydney is the capital, it's much bigger and more well known than Canberra is. Canberra basically has it's own Territory within New South Wales, solely to hold parliament.

Well, I got off the phone with the company I'll be working with. I'll be punching in on Monday 9 am, next week. We still haven't worked two things out: How many work hours exactly and how much will my pay be?
It's a part time job, so obviously it's below minimum wage and I don't have classes till March, so I'm completely available for the time being, so that's not an issue.

The pay is the tricky part: How much is my time worth? What should I factor in?

I'll start doing some research.

I finished my Arcade Stick! I just tested it out and all the wiring and buttons work perfectly! It's always a relief to finally test it out and see it works fine. I think I'll be playing some Super Streeties for the first time in a while now.

Well, I went to a job interview this morning. If things go smoothly, I'll be a part-time web admininstrator and web page designer starting next monday. I really need to thank my cousin for hooking me up with those guys.

I am so freaking out right now... Of joy, of course.

Greetings fellow geek-by-trade.  I do some web stuff but mainly systems and networking.  Hope it works well for you.

Out of curiosity what do you charge hourly for freelance work?
Title: Re: Post your current thoughts thread
Post by: max_cady on January 08, 2011, 12:36:55 pm
I had that talk with my future employer, but I still don't know how much will my fee be.

I know web designers get payed by the hour, but apparentely I'll be getting a comission for every website(about 10-15%) I build for the customers.

Other than that, I'll be mostly watching the company servers and being a small company, I'll also be doing some menial tasks for them.

Thanks!

I also went back today and upgraded my older arcade stick with new art and removed those unseemly brass screws. Unfortanately I wasn't able to get a new Perspex plate for the front case, so it's still a bit ratty. Hopefully I can update it later with a new panel. The varnish makes it look a lot lnicer than it used to though.

This topic (http://http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=418145) is amazing!

After 30 pages of just random conspiracy theories implying somehow and someway either The Tea Party, or Sarah Palin, or Glenn Beck or Rush Limbaugh were responsible for this poor Congresswoman getting shot, finally they get into the specifics of the gunman being a potheaded Mein Kampft and Communist Manifesto-reading psycho once it was actually revealed as such.

Only on a very superficial level, there's a few books out there detailing some Hitler's Worker's National Socialist Party(yes, that was the full name of Hitler's Nazi party) overall social experiments as both Staline and Hitler's idea was to create a completely state-dependent and state-controlled society. And much like state-dependent societies, everytime something went horribly wrong, they would just pin the blame on someone, preferably something vague and invisible, to scare people...

What some today call "market speculators" the root of all problems, back then, they went by a different name: "Jews" and Christians as well.

So completely random arrests and executions were the bread and butter of both these regimes, because they were also never given any actual profile of what an "evil-doer"  does or how they look like.

Hitler was also a strong advocate for gun control, because he didn't want the people to put 2 and 2 together suddenly realize their mistake and impeach him, by force if necessary.

Both Staline and Hitler wanted a controlled news media and both had their fair share of "useful idiots" and "puppet celebrities" to help their cause.

The short answer is: Different means, but ultimately the same goals.

Yes. The standard gear goes like this: Gun, baton, OC spray, taser, and handcuffs.
The kind of guns used depend on the police service (RCMP use different ones than the OPP).
In Ontario, it's all regulated as far as exactly what types of guns officers are given.


That's really a nice gear, the gun, baton pepper spray, taser..

You know, I give up.

There are only two words that can describe the current portuguese goverment and that is: "comically corrupt".

There was an auction where a lot of portuguese public debt was apparentely bought by an unspecified number of countries.

China appears to be have bought some of Portugal's debt in some unspecified and murky deals that were made. The Ministry of Finance comment on this? "It's possible that China may have bought some of Portugal's debt". That is all. Transparency at it's best. I laughed when I read the headline.

Valve announced that people that buy Portal 2 on PS3 get a Mac/PC steam download version for free.

And here I was debating which version to get... :)

Also the PS3 will get free steam updates, just like the PC version directly. Sounds solid.

I don't own a greatest hits game on PS3. That is quite a feat, considering I own 40+ games.

I have to purchase 'greatest hits' games in person, not online because i'm afraid of the ugly cases lol. I'm also still made that Sony changed the boxart look when they launched the smaller SKU.

Dude, your post gave me a boner. Is that classified as a "broner"?

I'm certain Chris Nolan will make it work. I mean, the dude took a teen heart throb that I admittedly didn't like at all at the time and made him the ultimate Joker.

Far more excited for Dark Knight Rises than I am for "Spider-Man: the reboot of Spider-Man 1 that is being filmed less than ten years after the first and only 5 years after the last one". I prefer a continuation of a story rather than another freakin reboot.

I actually don't mind reboots myself, especially if the first attempt just didn't work out or wasn't really true to the source. Good example is The Punisher. 2004 film was a good action flick, but it wasn't The Punisher. I was stoked to find that Warzone was going to be a re-boot rather than a sequel. Unfortunately that didn't turn out too well either. Needless to say, if they made ANOTHER reboot I would be very happy. I love seeing different interpretations of the same character like that sometimes.

You forgot the 1990's Punisher with Dolph Lundgren.
Title: Re: Post your current thoughts thread
Post by: Barry the Nomad on January 20, 2011, 07:44:48 am
Yeah, Punisher and Hulk have been rebooted like crazy. Well... the Hulk sequel was more of a semi-sequel than a full on reboot. Though, with Ed Norton not in the Avengers movie it'll be yet another Bruce Banner. That'll be three in one decade!

Thing is, with Spider-Man, they really could have made a great fourth film with the old cast. Only reason 3 wasn't so good was due to the studio pushing Raimi to include Venom. If a director has no interest in a character, then don't push them to include one in their film. Sandman, on the other hand, was well done. However he didn't get a lot of screen time. Same goes for Harry Osbourne, he had a great character arc through the three movies and yet didn't get enough screen time to develop in the third film.

Spider-Man 4 with the Lizard and Kraven would have been awesome! Weird transformations, horror and whackos with weapons are right up Raimi's alley. Since 3 did away with Harry, Venom and Sandman, there would be no baggage to hold down the fourth film. It
