2311  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Annual Expansion Releases? on: August 25, 2006, 01:23:21 PM
Except that they wouldn't make as much money if they went about it the way you're wanting them to go.  That's entirely the point of their new direction, and one can't really blame them for wanting to go this route, especially since they've got everyone hooked.
2312  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Phantasy Star Universe stuff. on: August 22, 2006, 02:10:02 PM
Pff, the voice acting is of the same caliber as Xenosaga Episode I, Star Ocean 3, Tales of Symphonia, or any of the other more recent RPG releases.  Sega didn't blow anything off.

Also, the Sonic Team commentary doesn't apply given that the team functions much like Square does, and there are multiple groups of programmers and designers that work on their own respective projects.  PSU's had dedicated development for 3+ years under Takao Miyoshi's lead and has been delayed for over a year purely for the sake of squashing bugs.  That's not the sign of a half-assed project, and what they've put together is pretty damned amazing given the resources that were at their disposal.
2313  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / WoW - Home to over 50% of all MMORPG playing dorks like us on: August 15, 2006, 09:33:14 AM
It is.  Another chart to look at is this one.
2314  The Rest / General Discussions / Ze Picture Thread on: August 10, 2006, 05:52:47 PM

That's me on the top of the antenna of an airport surveillance radar being assembled.

Side view... guy taking the picture asked me to pose in some fashion and that's what he got.

....and me working on an ECU next to a shelter.  I recall grabbing one of the 2' x 3' duct brackets and flinging it about 20 feet in some random direction a few minutes before this picture was taken, hence my fairly disgruntled expression.  My co-workers always enjoy it when I'm pissed.
2315  The Rest / General Discussions / Phil Harrison will be amazed if the PS4 has a disc drive on: August 08, 2006, 11:09:31 PM
Hey, I heard about this new thing called the internet, and people can publish whatever they want on it!  Books are totally going to be obsolete, I'd be surprised if there were still any print media left by 2004.
2316  The Rest / General Discussions / Flamebait: Girl without a face. on: August 07, 2006, 09:35:41 PM
I mentioned this to my friend JWL over AIM regarding this, but after thinking things over, I realized that she'll probably grow up just fine and overcome in the same fashion that Hellen Keller and Stephen Hawking did.

So yeah, still in the pro-life boat, here.  Kudos to her parents for not being shallow and looking past the outside.
2317  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Phantasy Star Universe to lack keyboard support? on: August 07, 2006, 09:17:53 PM
You're misinterpreting what Gast stated.  Being able to control via keyboard is exclusive to the PC version.  The game has full gamepad support.  Was able to configure buttons however I saw fit on my Xbox pad that I have connected to my PC while I played the beta version of the game.
2318  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Phantasy Star Universe to lack keyboard support? on: August 06, 2006, 06:23:40 PM
Sega is selling a USB keyboard for PlayStation 2 and PC.  Worry not, Sega's not half-assing this game.
2319  The Rest / General Discussions / Flamebait: Girl without a face. on: August 05, 2006, 05:20:10 PM
This is not for the faint of heart.  If you have a weak stomach, don't click.

Something Awful published an article regarding a girl named Juliana Wetmore, a girl who was born without a face.  With that article rekindles the never-ending debate of pro-life versus pro-choice.

I'll be honest here... I've always held pretty firmly to the pro-life deal, with very rare exceptions (is the mother's life at risk?  etc.), but how do you respond to a situation such as this?  As it stands, I'm completely indecisive in this scenario.  Thoughts?
2320  The Rest / General Discussions / Instruction Booklets on: July 31, 2006, 08:23:55 PM
Still plenty of games out there with large manuals.
2321  The Rest / General Discussions / Instruction Booklets on: July 31, 2006, 07:44:10 PM
Don't buy EA products.

Problem solved!
2322  The Rest / General Discussions / Israel to world: Fuck off on: July 17, 2006, 07:53:18 PM
Iran can't get involved.  They aren't exactly going to roll their military through Iraq, and firing Silkworm missiles over Iraqi airspace would be insanity.  We'd have to get involved if it happened, and Iran would have nothing to gain from it.

Not really sure about Syria, on the other hand.  However, if Israel attacks Syria, they wouldn't have too many sympathizers left.
2323  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Shining Force EXA on: July 15, 2006, 03:48:49 PM
The sold half of what they were aiming for in Japan, and the game sold less copies than Shining Tears did in the US.  On the other hand, Shining Force 3 remains their top selling Shining game of all time.  You'd think they'd consider making another strategy/RPG, but hey... let's keep making more action RPGs that sell like crap!
