The stupid name?

I can't imagine not using a credit card with services like this.  I don't know how you guys who use prepaid PSN cards do it...

I'm pretty sure Geohotz caused the holocaust.

Seriously, though, sometimes it seems like Sony is actively encouraging Geohotz-blaming.  But what can you do with a jailbroken console that you can't do with a PC?  Sony's shitty security isn't Geohotz's fault.

BTW, new credit card is on the way.  Don't hesitate, be paranoid.  Credit card companies are sympathetic to this kind of thing.  After all, it's a lot cheaper for them to send you a new card than is is for them to deal with fraudulent charge complaints.

Time to ask my bank for a new credit card...

A little while ago someone told me my food is too manly. Too spicy, too filling, too much on the plates. It's been bothering me, so I tried something different today. I made tomatosoup and it tasted pretty good, but I failed. It's still too manly T_T

Spicy - Good
Filling - Good
Lot's of it - Good
On a plate - Good

I don't see the problem here.

I completely agree.  It that makes it 'manly' then let's hear it for manly food!

Most RPGs have a number of battles in the hundreds and ~10 or fewer actions per battle.  That puts you in the thousands, not tens of thousands.  Going by your own estimate of 90 actions in 'one little section', is that section less than 1% of the game?  I don't think so.  So that still puts you in the thousands.

Face it, you were off by an order of magnitude.  A little common sense would have confirmed that too, since you were estimating ~40 hours watching attack animations.  Most JRPGs are only ~40 hours long in the first place, so either FFIV is an exceptionally long JRPG (it isn't) or there was something off about your numbers...

ZeronHitaro's ridiculous estimate aside (75,000 actions?  Really?), the abstract attack animations have really never bothered me.

As for why he's in this rather than working on MML3, look no further than this ==>http://www.siliconera.com/2011/04/22/mega-man-legends-3s-development-hinges-on-the-prototype-versions-reception/

Uh, Inafune left Capcom.  He's not going to be working on MML3 regardless.

I don't understand all the hate for sewers.  They can be done well or done poorly, just like any dungeon.  I guess they do tend to be a bit more mazelike than a lot of dungeons, but I like mazes.

Joystiq is reporting on a rumour that the PSN was shutdown to prevent people with custom firmwares from downloading free PSN games.  I find this baffling on a couple of levels:

1.  That certainly is a problem but why would it be necessary to shut down the entire PSN?  How about just the PSN Store?

2.  What kind god's name is wrong with Sony's security model such that this is even an issue?!  E-commerce has been alive and well for 20+ years with totally untrusted clients (i.e., any PC ever).  You should never under any circumstances trust the client to that degree.  Even if the PS3 itself was never hacked there would still be the possibility of man-in-the-middle style attacks.  My jaw hit the floor when I realized that somebody would even have a security hole like that in this day and age.  No wonder Sony freaked out so much over PS3 hacking.  Their system is a mess and they know it.

If you think 90% of music being made today sucks, you aren't looking hard enough.

That makes no sense.  If you have to look hard then clearly you're not talking about the 90%.  90% of it sucking doesn't mean that there aren't good examples out there.

Besides, 90% of everything is crap (Sturgeon's Revelation).

You must have played a different game than I did...

"Sure it takes a little while to get started and eats up a lot of drive space, but other than that, the PlayStation 3 version of BioShock 3 looks amazingly similiar to the Xbox 360 version..."
Bioshock PS3 vs. Bioshock 360.

Seriously, the differences are negligable.

HL2 was a bad port done by a third party.  Bioshock runs great on the PS3 so I don't know what you're talking about there.

The PS3 version of bioshock 1 is a fucking atrocity:

http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/xbox-360-vs-ps3-face-off-round-15-article?page=2

Calling it an atrocity is completely ridiculous.  It looks great and it runs great.  I've read a number of sources claiming that the PS3 version looks sharper than the 360 version, but I haven't done a detailed comparison myself.  Who cares?  Bayonette this certainly isn't.  I don't see the point in obsessing over tiny details.

I've been reading this mess for a while now and this whole thing is just embarrasing. More importanly though, I'm kinda worried about my account now. Maybe we should change our password just in case... someone around here is going to do that?

Surely you don't re-use passwords, right?  The only thing that uses my PSN password is my PSN account.  And if the PSN really has been hacked...well, changing your PSN password is kind of like closing the stable door after the horse has bolted.
