CPU: Intel Core i5 Quad-Core "Haswell" 4460 3.4 GHZ Clock Speed at 8GBs of DDR3 RAM at 384-512 MBs  32GB Bandwidth Bus.


APU: Intel HD Graphics 4600 with 1.1 GHZ Clock Speed 4096x2304 Max Resolution

GPU: Any Customizable Nvidia Ge Force GTX 680 or Higher.

Like...bro, do you even hardware. IntelHD is the iGPU in Haswell, not an APU onto itself.

(Q)Would it be Steam compatible? We're inclined it would be and that Valve would have no problem with licensing out Steam to SEGA

Seriously, do ANY of you running this project have any Idea what you are doing. Steam doesn't need to be licensed. It's a client that already runs on windows, jesus.

I could probably write a blog post alone just on the galactic levels of wrong in the hardware contents...nevermind everything else.

Guys, that Patrick guy is on facebook telling people that he is going to start a Kick Starter for SEGA and this project and the moment anybody says it's fake, or stupid to fund such a project he is banning them from the group.

This is an insidious scam... And he's going to con money out of people:

Following my article, which has gotten an insane amount of traffic for the site, I've noticed EternalHope has gone largely silent aside from saying he is not Zach Morris... which is debatable.

Man...this article I wrote(as terribad as it is compared to most other articles) takes me back hahah. Forgot to mention the Sega Phoenix in it actually based off Lindbergh.

The dreamblog has also started removing comments it seems critical of him. Hell, I'd take a LinkedIn page if he could provide one with sources, otherwise IIRC Zach Morris also used to be stationed out near the Houston area(Lawson is in Texas apparently).

Yeaahh. What if Lawson is Zach Morris? Lol, wouldn't doubt it.

That's pretty interesting though. He's a cancer survivor, so while I'm still not exactly thrilled, I'm happy for him and his family.

Reading this old post and comparing to how Patrick/EternalHope types makes me lean towards yes, he is Zach Morris: http://forums.sega.com/archive/index.php/t-28982.html

Both are from Texas, both are constantly throwing Hajime Satomi quotes out there, both look to Yuji Naka's opinion as validation, both break things down into these numeric points, and a slew of other words that both commonly throw out there. I haven't seen shared spelling mistakes, but then again spelling errors are often one time things or are corrected over the years.

They even are approaching things the same way, just read some of Zach's ideas and compare to Patrick/EH. Surprised EH thinks Zach is a troll given both seem to share the same ideals... and state.

No way are two likeminded people living so close to one another. I would also note that Patrick graduated just before Zach emerged. Maybe he had too much time on his hands?

Seriously, if EternalHope has proof he is not Zach Morris, please share it.

Wow, after reading that post you provided. There's no doubt in my mind that Eternal/Lawson is Zach Morris. Their writing style is almost identical.

Unless Eternal can otherwise confirm, they seem to be one in the same. Crazy that after 10 years, he's still up to the same bs.
