I mean I'm a fan of Megaman and all, but wow, that is one terrible add. The only thing Megaman 4 did differently was add the charge shot. I can hardly believe it says "Like Nothing Before."

Bought and watched V for Vendetta today. While I do like the movie it wasn't as enjoyable for me the second time around. I think it is a well done movie and all, but it doesn't have the depth of the graphic novel. It seems they tried to make up for it by toning down V's complete Byronic hero attitude and having him fall in love with Evey. The graphic novel did suggest some intimacy between them, but there is nothing concrete. I suppose they had to do something about the lack of depth to V's character, and they by no means completely ruined the story as far as I'm concerned because V didn't go so far as to let go of his goal. But it just doesn't quite do the graphic novel justice.

Wow, that's a surprising pick. I don't know what to expect from that so I can't really say I'm pleased or displeased with the choice.

Definitely something new for Ledger though.
949  Media / Miscellaneous Games / The State of NFL video games on: July 31, 2006, 11:57:26 PM
Essentially, the possibilities are endless, from an NFL kids game to an Xbox Live football trivia game to an NFL cheerleader dancing game -- football experiences that we have never seen before.

This sounds fantastic! Let's completely kill off the competition and then release a shitty "trivia" game, a cheerleader dancing game (which actually may tap into an untouched female market) that guys will only get to look at the digital tits, and then completely copy the Backyard sports games for kids. Not to mention that impressively "innovative" title, NFL Head Coach!


But in the next three years, football fans will be able to play five, maybe six -- maybe more -- types of NFL-licensed videogames in total, games that would not have been developed without the NFL agreement. At the very least, EA has demonstrated a commitment to expanding on the NFL license when it very well could have updated rosters and sold millions of copies to disgruntled gamers. If there has to be an exclusive deal, then as football fans, that commitment is all we can ask for.

You know, there are some of us who don't care for all the nonsense and want to play a football video game. Plain and simple. Sure, being immersive with the playbooks and real quarterback voices and stuff is pretty cool, but the last Madden game did a pretty good job of that while being a complete piece of shit to play.

I liked the NFL 2K series when I played the first one on Dreamcast years ago, and NFL 2K5 kicked the shit out of Madden '05 as far as gameplay was concerned, and now they just killed it. Sure we'll be getting some new things from the deal, but I think Madden '06 will be pretty crappy despite the fact it has "real quarterback voices" and "rendered faces."

All I have to say is: Stop all the bullshit and get back to the basics. Cinematic football games are neat, then you throw them away. Good football games are the ones you'll be playing for years after it was released when the roster is "no longer up to date."

I just want Tecmo Bowl back!

I'm to chapter fifteen in my second playthrough Fire Emblem: Fuuin no Tsurugi. Now that I know which units I like and which are useable and such it hasn't been as difficult as it was last time. I still don't like swordmasters or myrmidons, but there are SO many axe-using enemies in this game using them is a necessary evil; though I will admit they're better than the swordmasters in FE7.

So far I have Lilina, Lugh, Rutger, Sue, and Alan promoted with the rest getting pretty close.

Roy still fucking sucks. Shittiest Lord of all the FE games I've ever played.
951  The Rest / General Discussions / KH2: Is Sora a racist or discriminater? dun dun dun duuuuun. on: July 31, 2006, 11:29:57 AM

I know I'm late and all, but just wow.

Seriously, Sora dancing around with Nobodies, throwing flowers around and sliding down rainbows, and cute as hell Unicorns with huge eyes doing something or other; sounds like an awesome game.
952  The Rest / General Discussions / Human Consciousness' existence on: July 28, 2006, 04:53:51 PM
Yet neurons are still a mystery. Scientists have no idea how something like consciousness develops from the simple processes of neurons which function like on and off switches. I think most agree it is where consciousness comes from but there is a lot of debate and speculation still on "how" it comes from.

It's like asking an African bushman to explain how the simple nature of flipping a light switch can turn on a light. Sure it seems simple enough, even to us, yet it is a bit difficult even for a "modern" person to explain.

My thought of it is consciousness is a lot less complex than people make it out to be. Don't ask me to explain, but that is just my vague idea.

I would've assumed it to be some sort of sex accessory myself, so it's not necessarily a bad thing they clarified it :P

954  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / TMNT Trailer on: July 26, 2006, 12:48:29 PM
That and the current TMNT cartoon series is still running strong. I think the fifth season starts this fall.

Anyway, I was pretty pleased with the trailer when I finally was able to watch it. Damn Quicktime. But yea, I'll probably be there opening day myself. From what I've read of the story it sounds like it is going to stay pretty true to the current TMNT comics as well as new and old cartoon fans. I'm pretty excited, I'll be there opening day as well :D

It isn't letting me view the trailer. Do you need Quicktime Pro to watch it?
956  The Rest / General Discussions / The question begs to be asked: on: July 25, 2006, 09:01:15 PM
I'm too full of woe and melancholy to have something interesting to say anyway, so I don't make topics, so I don't use polls anyway, so there.

Sums it up fairly well for me. I usually don't make topics so it doesn't matter much.

I also don't really care for the whole poll idea because I prefer discussion in topics rather than a vote + one liner post saying, "I voted for _____ because of _____." Kind of defeats a bit of the purpose to having message boards.

Quote from: "Tomara"
I started playing Fire Emblem: Thracia 776, because there is no such thing as too much Fire Emblem. Before I started, I checked for patches, I'm not going to be as stupid as when I played 1, 3 and 4 in Japanese. I can now read names, menu's and weapons, yay...

Indeed! Have fun with Thracia, just don't let it discourage you because it can be VERY mean.

Speaking of Fire Emblem, I finally finished Sword of Seals. It was a pretty tough one too but all in all I think it is better than Blazing Sword as far as story goes. I'd really like to see an updated version with the cinematic elements of Blazing Sword and Sacred Stones implemented...maybe a better sprite for Roy too. Doubtful it will happen though.

I've also nearly finished Path of Radiance which I started three days ago. Quite the FE binge I have going. I think this is probably the best playthrough I've had so far. Ike is level 13 with maxed speed, defense, and strength. I'm to chapter 28.
958  The Rest / General Discussions / Bill Gates, so evil! on: July 24, 2006, 01:18:25 PM
I've heard it quite frequently from people here in Utah. Unfortunately most of these people talk trash about Bill Gates I've observed are fairly two-faced. I remember one such person I've heard talking about the ills of rich people yet the same person threw a fit when a family of African-Americans moved into their neighborhood.

I seriously can't stand living in Happy Valley, USA sometimes.

Quote from: "Seiken_Densetsu"
And you may have only have talked a few sentences in first-person, but there are other ways to approach a review without using first-person at all.

Someone took their high school English teacher too seriously. First-person, when used correctly, can make an essay, news story, or review better by personalizing whatever it is you're writing about. I often use first-person when writing essays for school and my professors never have any problems with it. It should be avoided and kept to a minimum, but it can look good in whatever it is someone is writing.

I see no problem with the first-person usage in John's review. In fact, I think you're nitpicking because you don't agree with the review's content yet couldn't find any problems you could dispute aside from a personal preference in writing style.

960  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Superman Returns on: July 22, 2006, 04:40:43 PM
Well Deg, the train sequence in Spiderman 2 was likely an allusion/homage to Superman who has been known to stop trains pretty frequently in the comics and animated series. It's pretty obvious when Spidey first tries to stop the train by planting his feet on the tracks which is how Superman tends to stop them. But it keeps that whole "You're not Superman" thing going by showing Spidey is capable of stopping a train, just not by brute strength alone. There is another train-stopping allusion to Superman that is blatantly obvious near the beginning of The Incredibles.
