She's probably not even as poorly off as those two - as science advances it may one day be possible to essentially create for her an entire prosthetic skull to make her infinitely closer to appearing normal than now, though it'll probably take so long to figure out how to do it safely in this lifetime.

Was playing X4, but then it locked up while loading. If I can find everything for the disc doctor, I'll give it another shot. But if I can't, then I guess I'll be giving up on this. Put back in DQ, but didn't really play. Am probably just going to kill myself and restart the game - this is likely the best game for replaying after you've stopped for a long time.

Katana? Unfortunately, no. But I /did/ find baking ingredients and made a litterally killer smoothie that, after drinking, made my spit lethal to zombies.

Apparantly, about 15 minutes of new movies instantly equals 30% new content. Outside of raw storage space, I really don't see why that flies, but hey. Admittedly, Devil Summoner and Princess Crown haven't even fixed their aspect ratios, and I think Logick mentioned that it may be excessively hard anyway to translate those games, further killing them.

Either SCEA is trying to 'protect the customer' to set themselves apart from Nintendo, who let several SNES ports come out that barely changed anything, or they're doing this because of their PSX download service. Nevertheless, ports of /Saturn/ games and collections should at least be excluded.

As for ToP: Uhh, yeah. This isn't some system bias crap - if anything, it's the anti-Sony sentiment that seems more widespread around here - it's just preferring whichever is the better version. I also tend to prefer getting the GC version of GC/PS2 games, and likewise prefer (or at least DID prefer) getting the XBox version over either of those. However, with the X360's flaky backwards compatibility, I'm more inclined to pick up GC or PS2 version. It helps though that the GBA port is, for reasons Leyviur listed, apparantly one of the worst ports made. I haven't really touched it though, so I can't fairly comment. Just that the original SNES version /did/ play kinda poorly (tri-Ace's fault here), and we haven't officially seen it released in the US until the GBA version came out, so Europeans are about as lucky as we were in actuality.

I really don't think you can just go and call celebrities 'evil' just because their opinions and affaird are publicized so heavily. But I don't like so much coverage being made. At most, it should all be sorted out and made into a biography later on, but I don't give a flying fuck about who is dating or marrying who. This is probably more the fault of the media, the fact so many are apparantly fascinated about following every little detail, and that some celebrities really want all that attention. Hell, the only time I even remotely care is when it's something as noteworthy/stupid as the Tom Cruise rant and this. Even then, the former only makes it harder to take him seriously and the latter... Well, whatever.

As for the apathy thing: probably more like a good quote, but not relevant to this subject. :P

Edit: Some interviews are nice to see/read every so often though. I just don't like the extreme I mentioned.

1up's got an exclusive early review. I know not many of you guys have X360, but for those that do, or at least are looking into one... At the very least, the demo of this is awesome. It's the only game where I can throw Servbot helmets on zombies, take pictures of them and get /bonus points/ for the Servbot helmets, then beat them to death with an electric guitar.
10462  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Phantasy Star Universe to lack keyboard support? on: August 06, 2006, 06:31:04 PM
Ahhh, alright Gast. Thanks for clearing that up.
10463  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Phantasy Star Universe to lack keyboard support? on: August 06, 2006, 04:03:55 PM
RPGFan news story, third paragraph.

Unless this is support for /playing/ the game with the keyboard instead of the controller, this pisses me off. The PS2 has USB ports, and even games like DoC are keeping keyboard support to play as an FPS. There's no reason to not support using the keyboard to type in PSU.
10464  Media / Single-Player RPGs / NISA and Blade Dancer on: August 06, 2006, 03:35:49 PM
NIS is probably best suited for comedic/light hearted games. But it sounds like Blade Dancer's story is complete trash, so I don't know how much I'd care anyway. I'm probably going to avoid the game anyway, pending magically finding a copy for $5 or something.
10465  The Rest / General Discussions / Anascape sues Microsoft, Nintendo over controller patents on: August 06, 2006, 02:44:40 PM
GameSpot story.

I'm getting tired of these lawsuits, espicially when it looks/seems like they're the result of people trying to cash in on the success of games by exploiting loopholes or negligence. Though Nintendo seems to have covered their asses pretty well patent-wise.

Quote from: "Dincrest"
...either way, it's more fuel for comedians, especially stand-up comedians.  They're having a field day with this.

Ahh, how true that is. Seeing the aftermath was great, such as the gifs or parodies on TV.

Quote from: "KeeperX"
Eus: There's been a "Game Soundtrack" category two years running, this is the first original score one.

Ahhh. Well, then they suck I guess. :P
10468  Media / The Soundroom / MTV Music Awards, namely the VG Score category. on: August 05, 2006, 09:53:01 PM
Belated RPGFan story. Thoughts on the choices? Despite what John said, I'm personally just glad they picked games with original soundtracks, and didn't just do what others like Spike TV have done and threw in a bunch of games full of licensed music, ignoring those with original compositions.

I can't comment on the rest, but I left it open for those that care more than I.
10469  The Rest / General Discussions / Flamebait: Girl without a face. on: August 05, 2006, 08:47:19 PM
If she wants to die, better to give her the choice later. She may've been fortunate if she was aborted, but she seems to be enjoying her life regardless. And it's hard to tell how things like this will turn out during pregnancy, since at first it looked like it was just going to be a cleft palate, something some people here were born with as I recall.

I want to say more, but I swear I can't formulate my thoughts any further.

The couch thing isn't a big deal. If that's all it was, I'd laugh at his stupid shit and blow it off. It's that damn scientology/psychology rant that keeps me from taking him seriously. Other actors and actresses are scientologists, and I really don't like that 'religion', but he went and made a public spectale out of himself when interviewed, without resorting to jumping on people's couches.
