I hated the first dissidia, felt too much like a shitty dragonball tenkaichi, and the designs for the characters were HORRIBLE (WTF BARTZ!!!). If this plays the same, idc how much of tifa's huge boobs they put in it, no thanks.

Oh, I'm not saying that he used the donation to pay for his vacation, nobody can prove if he did or didn't and frankly, I don't give a fuck. I was just pointing out the hilarious reactions all over the net when the news broke.
Removing the other OS feature was a lousy move, no doubt about it. The irony is the fact that it was caused by security concerns. They shouldn't have included it in the first place.
I can understand both sides. I hope they don't end up ruining the kid's live, like I said, they'll probably make an example out of him to discourage others from doing the same.
Actually, IGN claimed something about the secondary OS removal now being blamed on cost cutting. Not 100% sure, it was just a glance I caught of it really, but it may be worth looking into. Regardless as to why, it was still a dick move, I think that much everyone can agree on.

@Leyviur

I like how you worded that all, it makes a lot of sense. It's true, corporations are kinda taking control of our entertainment, but the only way to change it is to make your own form of it, or accept it and the laws that (in america at least) we the people agreed to. Sure we could do what someone like geohotz did and alter their media for our own gain, but at least for the time being (moreso if sony wins this lawsuit) it's against the law. You could call geohot a vigilante in what he's doing (he's still an asshole in my opinion, but eh). Maybe he's really trying to take a stand, or maybe he's just (like I figure it honestly) a pathetic kid who wanted more notoriety and fame for doing something, and it backfired. I still figure both Sony and Geohot to be fucking jerks in any case, Sony for being a manipulative greed-based corporation, and Geohot for being a smug basement dweller who thinks he can get away with what he's doing, but atm my favor leans towards sony. Geohot bought a ps3, and if he wasn't happy with the removal of the secondary OS function, he honestly shoulda gotten rid of his PS3 and been done with it. Now he's wasting his money, people's money, his time, sony's time, and a lot of energy on this whole lawsuit debacle when he could have went ahead and maybe made his own console based entertainment system, or applied for a job with sony directly and try to change these issues from the inside.

(btw I'm really enjoying the insights everyone's putting into this, no one I know personally cares to talk about this at all cuz they just wanna pirate their damned games all the time, lets keep it going please)

Holy crap. I did some conversions, and the US sales price is 155 pounds
I'm sure it doesn't weigh nearly that much.

Wait a sec, this isn't the pun thread.

On a more serious note, the Radioshack I work at just got them in yesterday. My boss locked up our valuables cage when I came in though, cuz he figured I would have stole one.

...he was pretty smart to do that.

George Hotz runs unsigned software on PS3 -> court
US military runs unsigned software on PS3 -> ...
AHA, it's a conspiracy, the US is in fact behind piracy!


I'll stop now >_>
2946  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: George Hotz (geohot) VS Sony. on: March 24, 2011, 06:01:18 PM
Then why is the US military allowed to do it for their 1716 PS3?
Probably because they aren't pirating games in the foreseeable future.

(wiseass quip was wiseass-tacular, lol)

Aren't the ones the military using for something specific though, and okay'd as well as being reprogrammed with help by Sony?

I hate when cosplayers clearly "don't try". x(
I hate it when they try to hard....like Man-Faye, or Sailor Moon:Big Black Man redux.

Cmon man, you seriously buy into that anti-piracy stuff? He's modifying a console that he's 100% aware of will be used as a means to download and play games for free. His attempt at working with Sony to close up security holes....what's to prevent him from using the information he gets from them to open bigger holes in their programming? Sorry, but you're look at that is a little naive, Anuubis. He knows what it's going to be used for, and if he cared that much about prevention, he'd have not released the root key, but perhaps in an honest attempt to show he's so anti piracy, a crack to reinstall the secondary OS feature, which is what he's swearing up and down about being the reason he did this all in the first place. Considering he also said he doesn't have a psn, which is the only way he'd have updated his system to begin with to lose said feature, which would mean this whole process wasn't necessary anyway, I'd say he's just doing this to get at Sony knowing full well what it's going to do.The domino he knocked down may not be the piracy problem, but he sure as hell has his dominoes lined up with that as the goal.

Obviously, it's all a matter of how much of the truth he's telling and how much is proven in court, but honestly he's too smart to to be that painfully honest.

@MGF Yeah, some people do want just homebrew, I can attest to that. But honestly speaking, how many people who have hacked devices like PSPs and Iphones honestly do it for homebrew alone? Alot less than the guys who pirate, I'm sure. Maybe it's just because I deal with such a large amount of grimy people on a day to day basis, but I'm definitely more inclined to think on the negative side in this all.

(oh, and just to maintain civility for the hopeful duration of all this, I'm not calling out anyone who advocates homebrew or defends geohot's posistion as a pirate or thief or such. This topic is just for opinions, not to condemn or praise anyone...cept geohot, I don't like him much at all >_>)

girls in restaurants who insist on calling everyone "hun", "sugar", "sweetheart" or similar petnames that would normally be used as a term of endearment to one's girl/boyfriend or husband/wife. Fucking rubs me the wrong way. I'm not much better, as I call everyone sir, miss, boss, dude, but mine are more like titles rather than creepy hit on terms.

A buddhist walks up to a hot dog cart. Says to the owner "Make me one with everything"......

Should be hitting you right about now.
2951  The Rest / General Discussions / George Hotz (geohot) VS Sony. on: March 24, 2011, 04:43:09 PM
So I've been kinda following the whole thing about him jailbreaking the PS3 and how Sony took his ass to court for it. I'm pretty interested in following it, mostly because I'm a big PS3 guy, and I hate how he's gonna give more people an opportunity to pirate some more and cost game developers money that could be better used for making some new games perhaps, but I'm really following it because I hate how every little pirating fanboy is defending him, saying it's their right to play with their system how they like. First up, no, you wanna download games free, stop pretending you're gonna do something special outside of piracy, if you wanna do homebrewed programs and gaming, do it on your pc which is okay to modify however you like (not really but eh). Second, I love how all these kids are claiming corporations are money grubbing scum suckers and such, when in reality, you're costing the working class employees money by what you're doing. If you bite sony's ass and they lose a few million dollars, they lay off the people who are less integral to the company (and get paid less overall). The corporate bigwigs lose nothing, they're set for life, all you're doing is hurting working people by stealing games. It's like stealing from a local video gamestop or a best buy. The working class employees (the ones who get aid for actually labor) are the guys who're gonna get fired. Best Buy executives and Gamestop corporate brass just shrug off a few stores to regulate their weekly checks back to 5 and 6 figures.

Enough of my ranting though, how about some opinions, I'd love to get some discussion going about this.
2952  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Radiant Historia on: March 24, 2011, 01:07:49 PM
Fought said guy again just now, not worrying about item use as much and regearing for defense/mdef. Stocke 62, Raynie and Marco 60, and after 20 minutes of elegant planning each turn, I beat him. Physical attacks are worthless, go for magic, and don't bother using your third tier bursts as they're not very damaging against these guys. I used turn break when ready, and just unloaded g spells. Stocke was my item whore, healing every turn and topping off mp/curing status effects. Raynie was nuke duty, and Marco was my ace in the hole. Emergency double heal when needed, stat buff/shield seed when not, trans-turn to Raynie when everything was smooth. I'll give a fair bit of advice to anyone who's fighting the master right now (complete with no spoilers).

Do NOT worry about using you super awesome items. If you can beat this guy, the final boss is cake. Make sure you win this fight, cuz what you get is soooooooo worth it. Good luck, and for the record, aht stinks!
2953  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Radiant Historia on: March 24, 2011, 03:21:17 AM
Just took a shot at the the guy who teaches aht stocke and eruca the pact moves. First form was easy-ish, second form destroyed me. Now bear in mind, I died one time through this whole game, and it was because of the optional boss in cygnus (the bear) because I wasn't aware he was gonna be that hard at my current level (granted, the second optional boss killed me a bunch, but I was using testing mechanics to fight him, see what I should/could do so they don't count). Nothing gave me a lot of trouble in difficulty, but this boss was HARD. 4 copies of the same dude, and my level 62 stocke with the best armor in the game and a huge defense push was taking 200 damage a hit, which is still 50 points less than my raynie or marco, who would take 2 hits and be dead basically. OH, and my third mana brst on Stocke, Dead Fencer, did a whole 7 damage to all 4 of em comboed together. Enjoy the fight everyone ^_^

Any suggestions on beating the second spider?
Which one, the battle arena one?
2955  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky on: March 22, 2011, 07:56:38 PM
