Started Xenosaga III a few days I ago, but I couldn't continue playing, I had a lot of work to do and I promised my brother I would wait for him to catch up. He finished Episode II today (thank god, I was getting sick of him constantly restarting, he is such a perfectionist!) and just started Episode III. I'm really looking forward to this game. I want answers!

I watch it every week. I used to read the scanlations rather obsessively and now I'm collecting the manga. Though the story of the anime is nothing new, the whole presentation has style. I love the last few minutes of the first episode.

It is abuse if the prices of products are raised artificially. This is not tolerated within the EU and Nintendo was fined 169,7 million euros when they did similar things within the EU between 1991 and 1997. The law may somewhat support Sony for now, but I doubt it is going to stay that way.

But isn't grey importing a product of a healthy marketmechanism? There are barely any laws obstructing grey importing in the case of consoles and games. More and more systems don't have regionlocks, systems have multiple language options and the TV standard isn't a problem anymore either. With the market wide open, price differences should fade away, in theory anyway. The only ones profiting from the higher prices in several parts of the worlds are the companies themselves. Abuse of corporate power is illegal according to EU law and I think this reasoning is going to spread with the economy becoming more global and all.

Okay, that's fucking bullshit. I read the news about the lawsuit over on Gamespot earlier, and Sony's reason for suing Lik-Sang and similar sites was
that they "want to protect the customers from buying hardware that won't function with software from their region". As if people who import aren't already aware of that.

This logic is especially retarded due to the fact that the PSP and PS3 are completely region free.

And, this is a lesser known fact, even PAL PS2s running PAL games transmit a pure NTSC signal when the players chooses 60-Hz mode. Many European TVs do not support 60Hz. The problem can often be solved by purchasing a RGB-cable, but the official RGB-cables cost 5 times as much as the cables of a lesser brand. I doubt anyone could lable that as protection...

That looks kinda cute.
1987  The Rest / General Discussions / Schools ban tag on: October 20, 2006, 03:20:27 AM
The guy should compare American schools to schools in other countries. I doubt American education is that harsh. I mean, I can't take the bus to school, we don't have such a system in the Netherlands, I ride my bicycle to school, 10 miles to school and 10 miles back. Every week several days are pretty long, I'll be at school from 8.10AM to 4.05PM. Some subjects have a very tight schedule, so I'll be doing some homework too. We don't have 10 minutes between classes, we get 2-3 minutes. And foreign students are often suprised at how soft and lenient our school is.

From my perspective, homework is neccesary to complete the tasks given to us before the deadline. If we don't do our assignments, it's likely we will fail tests, because we haven't practiced enough.

Of course, there are students in our schools who don't do homework, but they do poorly at exams and tests. If we get bad grades, our teachers take a look at our assignments and if they are done poorly, he/she will know what caused the bad grade.

Some teachers say we shouldn't be given this much work and be expected to take responsibility for it. In their classes students rarely do their homework, because they know the teacher will give them extra time during classes, even though we can handle the homework for other subjects just fine. Just yesterday, one of my classmates was talking to a teacher after she had recieved a bad grade. She claimed it wasn't her fault, she wasn't responsible enough yet to do that much work without supervision, she was still a kid, the teacher said she had a point. And the funny thing is, that girl is going to university next year.

You know, I think responsibility has a lot to do with these issues. If parents and teachers don't believe kids can't be responsible (responsible enough to not hurt other kids while playing tag or responsible enough to do homework) kids are likely to take advantage of that. The resulting behaviour alarms the adults and they put the kids on even shorter leashes. Like Dincrest said, if you never let them play with the skipping rope, how are you going to know they can handle it or not?
1988  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Fire Emblem -- Why do I play it??? on: October 17, 2006, 02:25:31 PM
I love the Fire Emblem games. I played most of them multiple times and the only one I didn't finish is Fire Emblem Gaiden. I don't let characters die. Throughout my whole Fire Emblem game I have made one sacrifice, Lucius died during the final battle and because I actually had a chance of winning that attempt I didn't reset. It was kinda ironic. I mean, Lucius, of all characters... and he was my favorite character too :(

XS3 is less story focused than 2, I feel, but the gameplay is worlds better. It's much longer as well, it took me about 50 hours doing almost everything (I think).

XS3 is probably the best all around game out of the 3.

I don't mind if it's less story focused, as long as I get my answers, I want to know if I'm right about a few things. I remember saying KOS-MOS reminded me of Lenneth when the first episode was just released and I want to know to what extent my comparison was correct.
1991  The Rest / General Discussions / Game Journal #3 on: October 13, 2006, 09:59:56 AM
Just finished Xenosaga Episode II. God, Shion is a bloody moron, I'm glad they ignored her for most of the game. I am looking forward to Episode III. Will Namco release it in Europe? If so, I should ask the boss if he could arrange a reviewcopy for me. If not... I guess I'll have to import it, I need to know how it ends and I already have the urge to spoil myself rotten by reading the script...
1992  The Rest / General Discussions / Teenager plays Space Invaders with neural interface. on: October 12, 2006, 10:19:47 AM
Because you need to be special to do something like that. He probably pilots a mecha in his spare time.
1993  Media / Single-Player RPGs / it happend to you that you stop play because you use faq? on: October 08, 2006, 03:06:35 PM
Reading is usually easier than writing. So many rules to keep track of...

Using a FAQ has never ruined a game for me. I just want to enjoy the game and I don't really care about beating a game all on my own.
1994  The Rest / General Discussions / Sony: Euro gamers don't mind delays. on: October 07, 2006, 09:17:42 AM
Yeah, because people want those systems and games. Would it be logical to think: "Well, I'd love to play Final Fantasy XIII, but I hate waiting 9-12 months before I can finally buy it in Europe, I guess I should boycot it all together."?

Europeans aren't unfamiliar with importing products. Gameshops usually carry popular NTSC versions of games. We do mind waiting and 60 for a game and importing does hurt sales, but I guess Sony doesn't care enough to notice. Their loss, not mine.
1995  The Rest / The Helper Monkey / Ancient laptop needs driver for soundcard on: September 30, 2006, 04:38:30 PM
I have Lifebook c4355, a lovely old system, but I have one huge problem, I can't a driver for the soundcard! The driver used to be on the Fujistu-Siemens site, but they seem to have removed it (curse them!). I don't know what kind of soundcard is in my laptop and I can't find the specifications of my laptop anywhere on the net. Help, please?
