The PS2 OG isn't even out in Japan yet. I wouldn't count it out just yet, especially if the GBA one sells well.

ZGM, the game may 'look' the same, but the sprites are much MUCH cleaner and animate much better, too. It's like watching an 80s cartoon and a recently made one. The difference is very noticeable once you see it in motion. Suzu being playable was actually the GBA version copping it from the PlayStation version, too. As an aside, your hate on for Sony isn't much differrent from what you're accusing the rest of this board of (Nintendo hating).

Alisha, yes, ToP takes place in ToS' distant future. Namco has said as such in a past interview.

I'm currently in the process of selling about all my games to get money for my suddenly diminishing college fund. My collection is, in layman's terms, the equivilant of a cheap $10 whore. I'm disappointed.

I will never, ever part with my Suikoden collection though.

Just to inform you, the PSP one WILL undoubtedly be better than the GBA one. The reasoning for this is because the GBA version is a train wreck port of the SNES version with a lot of flaws, faulty gameplay design, and weird as hell menu organization. The PSP version will be a port of the PlayStation version which has better animated graphcis, full voice acting, and most importantly, a completely revamped battle system with better control and spell timing - I believe that in the PS version, spells don't freeze everything like they did in the GBA version. That made the already choppy gameplay even worse.

You can find my take on the game here.

You need to read more then. I borrowed that line of reasoning from 1984. If thats stupid to you, then well ..yeah.


Yes, I've read it. Just because it comes from a book doesn't mean it's automatically 'smart.'

Apathy breeds obedience I guess. The more you don't care about what those with the power to influence say, the easier it is for them to influence you.


This is the dumbest thing I've ever read.

I think "Final Fantasy for DUMMIES" works better.

Maybe they'll surprise us and remake Chrono Trigger for the DS.

...what? A guy can have his totally out there fantasies, can't he?

I don't disagree that many things in history have become embellished. I also don't doubt that the justification was exaggerated in the rationale to drop the bombs. At times of desperation, people will stretch the truth to get out of it. No avoiding that.

I don't, however, disagree with the bombs being dropped. It was basically the belting a kid got to tell him to get his shit straight. If we hadn't dropped the bombs, history might've repeated itself. Now it's not just Japan, but many countries that need to consider "will doing something like this get our asses nuked?" It's a scare tactic, but a damn effective one.

That's actually the third game in the series.
3836  The Rest / General Discussions / The Bomb causes global warming on: August 05, 2006, 06:12:49 AM
Of course not. My Asian history class mentioned that many Japanese citizens, not to mention American Japanese in concentration camps, were horrified that their own people, who they believed to be honorable and noble, committed such atrocities.

About the museum though, I guess my information is outdated or incorrect. This whole issue has caused a lot of conflicts and scrutiny over the years, and it seems like Japan is just now starting admit what happened.

I wonder what's worse: The Japanese making sob stories out of getting barbequed or them trying to justify killing millions of people in their invasion of the mainland.


I saw the bomb memorial museum in hiroshima and the whole china issue was very sketchy.  iirc, they did mention it, but the numbers and acts were toned down majorly from the articles i've read other places.


"Sketchy" is an undesrstatement. If I'm not misinformed, the entire thing was about how Japan tried to "liberate and help" the mainland from foreign influence or whatever.

This game is short as sin. Other than that it's pretty fun.
3840  The Rest / The Helper Monkey / Problem with Norton Internet Security on: August 01, 2006, 07:03:17 PM
I have a new computer that comes with Norton Internet Security preinstalled, and t keeps blocking AIM Triton. I have the progam updated and AIM set on "Permit All," with all AIM ports unblocked, but whenever Norton Internet Security is enabled, AIM is blocked. Anyone have any solutions to this?
