946  The Rest / General Discussions / Habeas corpus is for the gays and terrorists. on: October 20, 2006, 10:33:56 PM
Quote from: "Bogatyr"
I don't see why make an ironic comment to defend the "rights" a bunch of lowlife criminals.
But if you say you don't support them, period, that's a good enough answer for me.

I'll defend the Black Panthers. They weren't lowlife criminals, they were angry African-American citizens who wanted to defend their fellow African-American citizens, with lethal force if necessary, from being exploited and persecuted by the Caucasian majority. The key word being defend. Also, you're taking the notion of the Black Panthers from a typical mindset of what you hear or read in the media or even a lot of history textbooks. While they were militaristic, they also set up fundraisers and community programs to help poverished African-American communities.

There's a lot more to the Black Panthers than just being, "angry black guys with guns."

I will be voting Democrat down the line here in Utah this election. The problem is I'm in Utah, and my vote isn't going to make much difference. But holy shit that is fucked up.

I can't say that America has always been perfect (quite the opposite a lot of times) but dang.
948  The Rest / General Discussions / Worst Rated Player in Madden 07 speaks his mind... on: October 20, 2006, 04:47:09 PM

That's awesome! Still, I can't help but wonder if the guy isn't taking this a little too seriously :P

but even with just high quality 1st party titles, it will be worth owning.

My sentiments exactly. Nintendo's juggernauts are quite the force to be reckoned with and not just because they're part of a popular franchise; they're fun games to play. A lot of people, including myself, are more than willing to buy a Nintendo console for the first party games.
950  The Rest / General Discussions / Schools ban tag on: October 18, 2006, 11:44:22 PM
Quote from: "Alexander"
Edit: Guys, if this is something at just a couple of schools, should it really matter?

Nevermind the fact that a few hundred or more children at said schools just had some of their recess activities taken away from them. What are they supposed to do now? Play hopscotch?...Not that there is anything wrong with hopscotch, but flag football, soccer, dodgeball, buttball and whatever else are just so much more fun!

Christ, I fell off the top of a fucking slide and split my head wide open. I was on a swing when a girl walked too close behind me and I broke her jaw when my foot hit her in the cheek. My friends and I climbed all over the basketball hoops and one fell off and broke his leg. And to top it all off we played tackle football at recess even though it was "against the rules."

And guess what! We all fucking survived elementary without being damaged for life!

But when it all comes down to it, they're going to need teachers or the playground attendants to enforce the new rules and there is no doubt in my mind as far as these kids breaking the rules goes. Because they're going to.

As Neal pointed out, the American school system is out of control. This being one of the reasons I decided not to be a junior high/high school English teacher. I don't want parents sueing me because there kid is skipping class and doing poorly.

Ah, enough of my bumbling. I just feel sorry for those kids who have to go to such boring ass schools as those.
951  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Shadow of the Colossus on: October 18, 2006, 11:27:11 PM
I think more than anything the control scheme differs from what is generally used for PS2 games. I had no problem adjusting myself, but that's just me.
952  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Fire Emblem -- Why do I play it??? on: October 17, 2006, 02:54:12 PM
I enjoy the fact it isn't mindless fun, but that I actually have to think about the next moves I make rather than mashing buttons. The difficulty also entices me. I'm nowhere near as hardcore as I used to be when it comes to game difficulty (I used to play through Megaman 2 on daily basis for hell's sakes) but higher difficulty levels appeal to me because I enjoy the rewarding experience from kicking a hard game in the ass. Fire Emblem gives me ample opportunities for doing that, so I like it.

Although I have to admit I was somewhat disappointed by the "ease" of the games released in America and Europe after I played FE6. On the other hand, I'm grateful they're easier after playing FE5 because holy shit that one is fucking torture for a completionist.

Lastly I enjoy the battle system. It is easy to grasp but surprisingly deep and challenging at the same time. Perfect.
953  The Rest / General Discussions / EA begins to charge for cheats on: October 17, 2006, 12:08:37 AM
I think most people like The Sims. I even like The Sims. I don't play it anymore but I did quite frequently for the first few months the original was released. It just sucked up too much of my gaming time.

Huh? Oh yea, on topic:

Pretty fucking stupid if you ask me. Whatever happened to the classic Konami code? That shit is all anyone should ever need.

I don't play EA games though, so it doesn't really matter to me. If they want to charge five bucks for create a player on Madden then that is fine by me.

I've now played through Okami twice. In total I've spent just about 70 hours with the game over the past three weeks. Completed the second playthrough in 24 hours and 36 minutes. I think I'm finished with the game for the time being, though I'll definitely be playing it again in the future.

In all my time playing video games there have only been three games that I have played through in their entirety again after I finished them for the first time. They are Chrono Trigger, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, and now Okami.

I'll sure miss ya Clover Studio, but thanks for all the fun!
955  The Rest / General Discussions / Jacko attempts to label Bully 'public nuisance', fails. on: October 14, 2006, 05:05:03 PM
Mr Thompson filed his legal action last month, claiming that the game would violate Florida's public-nuisance laws.

They are typically used to prosecute environmental pollution.

That says everything as far as I'm concerned.
956  The Rest / General Discussions / Clover Studio to be Dissolved on: October 13, 2006, 12:08:17 AM
What I'm worried about is Capcom destroying the the Viewtiful Joe and Okami names with shitty sequels since they love to do that to even their somewhat successful franchises.
957  The Rest / General Discussions / Wii pre-orders start tomorrow! on: October 13, 2006, 12:01:12 AM
I'm so sad I won't be able to afford one, because I really want one. That also means I'll have to avoid the internet for a month until Twilight Princess is out for GameCube so I don't mistakenly/unmistakenly see any spoilers.

I'd preorder if I could though :(
958  The Rest / General Discussions / Clover Studio to be Dissolved on: October 12, 2006, 11:31:12 AM
That...That is the worse news I've heard from the gaming world in a LONG time! I LOVE Clover Studio's games! I have all the Viewtiful Joe games and Okami!

Ah, Capcom, you've broken my heart yet again :(
959  The Rest / General Discussions / Teenager plays Space Invaders with neural interface. on: October 12, 2006, 01:21:22 AM
Holy shit, that's just crazy! Way cool though.

It amazes me how far neurology has progressed in the last decade. Just simply astonishing.
960  The Rest / General Discussions / Game Journal #3 on: October 11, 2006, 10:50:51 PM
Apparently I'm not finished with Okami, because I've been playing through it again. Getting through in about half the time so far. I was about twenty hours in I believe when I defeated Orochi in my first playthrough and I managed to get just as far in under ten hours this time. Still having a lot of fun, even if the game was made easier by the fact you start with almost all of the Divine Instruments and Dojo techniques, but I don't care much because the experience is still fantastic.

I just made it to Sei'an City where I will actually take the time to open the treasure chests in the canals before I dig up the spring.

Oh, and I have over 300 demon fangs now, so no worries there either.
