... Sigh. It's harder to defend how to find a way to ensure those are perfectly safe. And they're probably even more harmed: It's no big deal for some bottled water to be stored on an airplane to quench thirst. But half of what makes those things great is that it lets us do stuff like gaming, listening to music, or just getting some work done on the plane. We'll just revert back to books and stuff, which is good. But then we'll find out that... I dunno. Some asshole can threaten the pilot with paper cuts and we lose those too.

Regardless, I'm happy with this policy change. I hope it's set in stone, since, as they say - safety first.

... I'd rather not. Loopholes can be found in everything. If they can find a way to detect them, or allow only sealed ones, like cans of soda or unopened drink bottles, but not opened stuff or easily tampered with containers, such as coffee cups. Plus perhaps they can create detectors for this crap.

If everything that's remotely a threat is eliminated, eventually airplanes would be restricted exclusively to those on business and the like. Then we'd just see terrorism on buses and trains.

Luckily it kind of looks like the lock-on targeting system is still there (I can't tell for sure) because I liked it. The lack of being able to lock-on to an enemy in Metroid Prime: Hunters is what killed the game for me because the stylus just didn't get the job done. I do think using the Wiimote will be a much better option than the stylus, but the lock-on is something I hope reappears.

Yes, but enemies will apparantly be able to easily break it now. So you're going to be screwed into having to point around sometimes. But I think the Wiimote will probably work better then some stylus.

Only reason I'd say that inclusion of sonic is a good idea is for the PSP version. I haven't played portable Sonic 3 since I owned a Nomad.

Well, you got me there. Portable Sonic /would/ be pretty damn nice.

Lack of Sonic 3, one of the best games ever created, makes me very sad. Also the lack of Streets of Rage.

I think including the Sonic games period is ludicrous, as they kinda already have a collection on that system.

Lack of SoR sucks though.

Edit: Actually, being on another collection technically counts for Flicky, Ristar, Comix Zone, and Vectorman 1/2. Difference being that I don't have to go through the trouble of unlocking them on this collection, so they're good in my book.

Better safe than sorry, I guess. Still though, I don't like the idea that even /liquids/ are banned, but I can't really argue for anything beyond something like installing vending machines on a plane, and it honestly doesn't affect me directly anyway since I don't fly in airplanes much, not to mention it's probably a temporary measure.

Still though, the end of the days of 'carry on baggage' worries me. Always takes a few pricks to ruin it for millions and billions of innocent people.

Edit: Deleted part of the first bit since I wrote about half of this before /reading/ the article. I think possibly not being able to take on carry on baggage anymore = loss of freedom.

Reading some of the comments kinda worries me - like the reason for why a new Alex Kidd likely won't be made (I'm apathetic of the series currently), as it reminds me too much of the reasoning for making Shining Force Neo an action RPG. And reading the commentary on each of the titles, when I think about it, it truly is baffling that the Genesis port of /Virtua Fighter 2/ is included instead of something like Gunstar Heroes or Dynamite Headdy.

I'm kinda worried about if they break too much from Metroid conventions - they seemed to muck up the near-perfect balance of shooting and adventuring in Prime 2 in favor of shooting (way too many annoying encounters), and Prime 3 is making you go from planet to planet, rather than creating one large world like all previous titles.

Still, it should be a great game even if it fails to live up to 1, and I may just be a cranky fanboy who doesn't want things to change ever. Still though,t his is a change to something more mundane, while changes from games like CT to CC and BoFI-IV to V were largely unorthodox.

You're an idiot.

The Wii will flop like breathing flopped.

Yeah, god forbid that he leaves it open in case things don't turn out as well as we hope. :P

I'd just like to note that I was joking when I asked 'what're we talking about FFIII for?'.

1up story. This could also go in Console RPGs I guess, but I'm leaning more towards here because there's only about, say, 4 or 5 RPGs on that list.

Aw man. I'm glad all the Phantasy Stars are there, but no Shining? Streets of Rage is also a disappointment, albit a much less serious one. They could've fit both Shining Force 1 & 2 on had they removed the two Sonic games. As good as Sonic is, there's already a Sonic collection on the PS2: Why not bolster sales of that for those that want to play Sonic 1 & 2?

Still, looks like a pretty solid collection.
10437  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Deep Labyrinth Anyone? on: August 10, 2006, 04:25:30 AM
I'm kinda interested in it, though it's not a high priority. Doesn't help that even the favorable reviews are giving it a 6.5. Still, it might be entertaining.

I just don't understand why it's going to be on the PSP.

I've got a simple answer to your inquiry:

10440  The Rest / General Discussions / Joe Lieberman concedes in Democratic primary for Senate on: August 09, 2006, 06:46:28 PM
Outside of the games issue (and honestly, there's way worse than Lieberman out there, despite the fact he basically started this), I really don't have an opinion of him.
