10486  Media / Single-Player RPGs / This Fall/Winter is gonna suck....but is also awesome. on: August 03, 2006, 10:30:27 PM

Heh. Now anything past this is just beating a dead horse.
10487  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Symphony of the Night to be released on XBox Live Arcade on: August 03, 2006, 10:05:56 PM
It's too early to say shit about whether or not it'll be on the PSP, and it's not like Sony or Nintendo have much say beyond approving/denying it, and I doubt Nintendo would deny it. Sony probably would, but that's made a non-issue with the PSX download service, where it once again becomes a matter of whether or not Konami goes through... And if they're doing this for the fucking /XBox/, I think there's a good chance we can get it when PSX downloads go up.

... Huh?
10489  The Rest / General Discussions / Mel Gibson Hates Jews on: August 03, 2006, 08:03:29 AM
Well... I understand the Jewish community being offended, but I don't think is worthy of /hatred/ of the person. I don't think I'd take well to hearing someone shout shit about me while they were drunk, but better to let that go since they were drunk. Personally, I just view this similarly to when someone acts stupid on the boards - curious to see how the responses turn out.

I can't think of any actor, aside from one, that's actually bugged me enough with how they've acted that I can't bring myself to watch their stuff anymore. It's their own lives, as long as they keep doing their job well, I don't give a crap. As for that one, it'd be Tom Cruise. I'm honestly not sure if I can take him seriously anymore after his whackass bullshit, but I'm going to have to try sooner or later.
10490  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Xenosaga Episode III: Also Sprach Zarathustra on: August 03, 2006, 03:14:35 AM
I actually enjoyed Episode 1's gameplay, so unless my tastes somehow changed enough without me knowing to the point that I'd hate it, I'll be happy with that - the only change I can see is tolerance for length, and if this review's any indicator, that problem won't be there.

Looked at other reviews on the site too - Definitely going to wait on .hack//G.U., and most likely will just read a synopsis. And it sounds like BKO may have a glimmer of hope, but I'll wait until I hear what others say - it's still suffering from one of the biggest problems I had it seems.
10491  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Xenosaga Episode III: Also Sprach Zarathustra on: August 03, 2006, 01:45:17 AM
I've been wondering how this game turned out after the first two that polarized several, myself included, so I went to look for reviews on the import to see if they managed to end the series well. Sounds like they did. While the bit about likening the dungeons to those of SH:C isn't favorable for me, the fact battles are dramatically shorter makes me happy, and it's good to see that it sounds like they didn't just totally destroy the story in the attempt to finish it up. There were some others at GameFaqs that I only glanced at that seemed to be positive overall.

Sadly, there's a stronger argument against Punch Out - making the Russian guy Vodka Drunkenski in the Arcade version, the first guy a wimpy Frenchie... But then those were cartoon cariactures, and never did anything excessively bad, like blackface. :P
10493  The Rest / General Discussions / Game Journal #2 on the new(ish) boards on: August 02, 2006, 09:00:38 PM
Beat Drill Dozer. Kinda short, but given that it's akin to old 16 bit platformers, I guess that really shouldn't be a surprise, plus the levels tended to be pretty long. I really recommand it to those that have GBAs/DSes, espicially with it being cheaper.
10494  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Contact on: August 02, 2006, 07:41:55 PM
I know some editors weren't all that impressed with it, but looking elsewhere I've seen positive impressions of the game, and I enjoyed Grasshoper's last game, Killer 7. Anyone else interested at all in this?

Edit: Oh, and it's coming out soon, sometime in September it seems.
10495  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Summon Night - anyone else grab this? on: August 02, 2006, 03:35:38 AM
I'd like to get it sooner or later. It looks like the only game that actually decided to try copying what the Tales series does, so I'm interested.
10496  The Rest / General Discussions / Horrible game ads. on: August 02, 2006, 01:53:10 AM
Who remembers seeing shitty game ads in magazines years ago? Scott Sharkey of 1up's done two features covering them, the Best Worst Ads, and the Bestest Worser Ads. It's amusing to see them again and just how god awful they truly were. :P
10497  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Spider-Man 3 teaser on: August 01, 2006, 06:06:28 AM
Well, I saw the trailer when I saw Superman Returns, so while this is a late post, I guess I was wrong about the Sandman. But I wonder if he'll be the main antagonist while Venom/Green Goblin are set up, if the Green Goblin will just continue to be developed, or if they're really nuts enough to throw all 3 at us. Christ, it'd probably be 2 1/2 or 3 hours or something.
10498  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / The Fountain on: August 01, 2006, 06:03:30 AM
Saw a trailer of this when I went to see Superman Returns. Looks interesting, anyone have any comments on this?

Read the second link. Apparently the Jews do. :P

Hey, that's right, I should watch the Daily Show tonight to see what Jon Stewart says.

Does anyone else hear the word Festival and think....BIG SHABANG?

And....5,000 people still sounds like a big deal to me, not nearly what both articles posted seemed to portray.

Makes me think it'll be more along the lines of what it's meant to be - show off future stuff to the press to report to everyone else. As it was in recent years, it was more like a extravagent party that was highly exclusive to a fault.

Edit: I'm trying to find the attendence numbers of earlier shows - this may really just be regressing back to when it started, rather than turning into some event that's dramatically smaller than ever before.

Edit 2: Started with 50,000 according to GameSpy. Yeah, definitely turned into a dramatically smaller event than ever.
