Everyone that loves Uncharted 2 needs to see The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor. I already knew Uncharted was super duper ripping off Indiana Jones, but this was a bit too much.

Your point being?  I haven't heard anyone praising Uncharted 2 for its originality.

Got an email from NISA saying that there was some manufacturing issue and they don't expect to start shipping orders out until the 29th (the game is supposed to be out the 27th).  This is for my preorder from the NISA store.  I'm not sure if this affects retail copies.

Oh well, gives me time to play the Team Ico collection.

I personally felt that Uncharted 2 was tons better than the first.  Sure there weren't really any big changes, but there were so many subtle improvements that everything just felt better, particularly with regard to the pacing of the game.

But why are we talking about Uncharted in a Deus Ex thread?

My copy is on its way!

Well...

Code:
Depending on what you did earlier, many of your augs (including the typhoon) are not available for the third boss fight, which can make it a bit of a pain.

I do think the first was the hardest, though.  I was rather unprepared for it.  Of course, later on I read somewhere that you can just take him out with the stun gun.  It stuns him long enough that you have time to reload and after like ten shots he's down.  If I replay the game I'll give that a shot.

Are we talking Uncharted, or Deus Ex here?

Code:
Though the Deus Ex "zombies" are some of the funniest shit I've ever seen. Were they TRYING to be scary? Cuz it was just a bunch of goofy guys running around wimpering, crying, and banging into things! Fuckin' hillarious!

Back to Deus Ex, I guess.

Code:
I was [i]never[/i] under the impression that the 'zombies' in Deus Ex were supposed to be scary.  They were people who were driven insane and they acted like people who were insane.  If anything you were supposed to have sympathy for them.

They were a pain in the ass for stealth, though.  Too many eyes.  Made me feel kind of bad after I got spotted and had to mow them down with my heavy rifle...they didn't stand a chance.

So Japan hates Chrono Cross? I figured.

I have no idea how you arrived at that conclusion.

I was looking around for reviews of Totori and the first one I found was this.  People complain about IGN reviews, but at least they're grammatically correct.  That was painful to read.  How can anyone look at that thing and think it was suitable for publication?
2289  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The Merged Final Fantasy XIII-2 Thread on: September 25, 2011, 03:06:31 AM

Didn't the rest of us know this months ago?
2290  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception on: September 25, 2011, 03:04:00 AM
Having fun with the first game, but man, I canNOT un-hear Desmond Miles (Assassin's Creed) for the life of me whenever Drake speaks. Thanks a lot, Nolan North.

I have the same problem, but backwards.

Yeah, I've always thought of Drake as Nolan North's most iconic role.

If they have a press conference and it DOESN'T start with that dude that looked like Gordon Freeman breakdancing way the fuck out to Beastie Boys - The Sounds of Science, then fuck physics.

That's fair.

Nobody is "really confident" in this.  Not even the people presenting it.  Whatever gave you that impression?

The media frenzy is amusing, though.
2293  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: CERN researchers upset physics as we know them. on: September 22, 2011, 08:21:47 PM
Did anyone else ever think that "nothing is faster than the speed of light" was sort of arbitrary anyway?

Not really, no.

'Speed of light' is just a name.  It's better to think of it as there being an inherit top speed in the universe, and light just happens to go at that speed because photons are massless.  Other massless particles also travel at the 'speed of light'.  It's just that photons were the first massless particles to be studied.

It's a bit confusing talking about the DS 'version' or PS3 'version', anyway.  Yeah, I know, they have the same title so it's sort of natural that people do that, but they're actually completely different games.
2295  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: CERN researchers upset physics as we know them. on: September 22, 2011, 07:32:15 PM
I'm a physicist and I would suggest taking a result like this with a grain of salt.  A timing measurement like this over that kind of distance is an extremely hard thing to do.  Actually getting the time accurately is the easy part, the problem is with knowing the exact distance travelled with the necessary precision.  Even the authors of this result don't seem to have much confidence in it.

Unfortunately, details are scare at this point.  They say they want to publish something, but I looked on the arxiv and it doesn't look like they've put anything out yet.

But the BBC article really glosses over the problems.  Love their scare quotes on "systematic error".  Sorry, but systematic errors are everything in an experiment like this.  Science magazine has a more balanced view.
