Are we talking Uncharted, or Deus Ex here?

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.

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?

Didn't the rest of us know this months ago?
2645  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.

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.

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.

Is there a reason you link to Neogaf instead of the actual IGN article?
2652  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Next Vanillaware Title to be Grand Knight History on: September 22, 2011, 12:52:59 PM
I love you, Xseed

So friggin psyched...
2653  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: PlayStation Vita Announced (late 2011, $249/$299 for WiFi/3G+WiFI) + some games on: September 21, 2011, 07:12:53 PM
Vita might be the first game system I ever buy at launch.  Normally I find launch games to be completely underwhelming and I'd rather just wait for a price drip, but damn there is some compelling stuff for Vita...

Oh no, I get the GBA, SNES or DS versions issue. What I meant was if you are getting the PSN versions then you have a PS3, so if no improvements why not simply buy the PSOne copies.

Why spend time dealing with eBay looking for old long-out-of-print games (and taking a potential risk with used games: scratched discs, etc.) when you can just buy the PSN version?  I don't understand your comments...
2655  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy Type 0 on: September 21, 2011, 11:12:12 AM
The funny thing is that the game wasn't even indevelopment when it was first announced...

I agree that the game was announced stupidly early, but Yggdrasil's comment is still completely ridiculous.  I guess the moment a game is announced he stops playing anything else and just sits around waiting for it.  Even when the announcement consists of little more than a title (that was later changed) and a platform (that was later changed!).
