Apparently it has a Dec 9th release date for us in the states.


Awesome. Thanks for the news.

I actually thought the first 2/3 were pretty good and there were some nice character bits. Particularly
the bits with Davros calling the Doctor a hypocrite for not picking up a gun, but turning humans into weapons. And Sarah Jane seeing Davros. And the bit at the end with Wilf saying goodbye to the Doctor was good too.  It's just that RTD can't write a fucking decent two parter

So it appears that
the episode was shit. I don't know why I get my hopes up. More technobabble than an episode of ST Voyager.

It's five bucks.

I know but I'm not getting a lot of hours at my job because I just started and I need to pay rent.

Yeah, five bucks is really important right now :(

For Elementary school, I'd say play them some Pink Floyd from Piper At The Gates of Dawn or some of the solo Syd Barrett stuff. Some of it is quite catchy and cute and I think they'd like it.

I don't mean stuff like Interstellar Overdrive either. I mean like Scarecrow or Bike from Piper or Octopus from Madcap Laughs.

The Loblaws Superstore near my house is having a sale with a bunch of games for $5. I saw Arc The Lad and figured I'd get opinions before I grabbed it.

Is it worth grabbing?

Seems that the Suikoden 1 and 2 compilation for the PSP sold poorly in Japan, so maybe they think that it will sell even worst in america.

I still don't understand that one. Considering how much they go for on Ebay, you'd think Sony would be chomping at the bit to re-release it here.

I still pray to the gaming Gods that it'll be on PS2.

If it comes out on PSP you know it'll be ported to that before too long!

Funny I was already thinking of that.

I'll argue for a console release for the same reason I argued against a Wii release. The plots, since Suiko 2 anyway, have become denser and denser with each release. Hell it's five or six hours before the plot starts rolling in Suiko V.

I don't know the ratio of how much space there is on a UMD vs a normal DVD but I'd prefer a console release just for the fact that the story the developers wanted to tell wouldn't be hampered by space restrictions.

I'd actually argue that Suiko games hinge on plot more than a lot of RPGs (even though it seems like there are certain events that have to happen every game, like a prince/someone of nobility having his kingdom stolen) and I'd rather have a game with a dense plot that took the time to establish characters and setting than a Suiko game that skimped on it.
4781  The Rest / General Discussions / Ronald McDonald part of "giant gay agenda" on: July 03, 2008, 07:26:49 PM
Seriously, you can't make stuff like this up.


American Family Association Launches Boycott Against McDonald’s For ‘Promoting The Homosexual Agenda’»

Today, the right-wing American Family Association (AFA) announced a boycott of McDonald’s. According to AFA, Ronald McDonald and his gang are part of giant gay agenda:

What the boycott of McDonald’s IS about

It is about McDonald’s, as a corporation, refusing to remain neutral in the culture wars. McDonald’s has chosen not to remain neutral but to give the full weight of their corporation to promoting the homosexual agenda, including homosexual marriage.

AFA is upset at McDonald’s for refusing to condemn Vice President of Communications Richard Ellis’s decision to serve on the Board of Directors of the National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC). AFA President Donald Wildmon said the situation is “strange” because “it’s the family that McDonald’s appeals to — children’s playland, you know, all the little toys, all of that. And they are promoting a lifestyle that would utterly destroy the traditional family.”

So far, McDonald’s is holding strong, writing a letter to Wildmon on May 29 and rebuffing his attacks:

We treat our employees and our customers with respect and dignity, regardless of their ethnicity, religious beliefs, sexual orientation or other factors. We support our employees’ personal involvement in organizations of their choice.

Although AFA tries to make clear that it is NOT protesting McDonald’s “hiring homosexuals” or “homosexuals eating at McDonald’s,” as Good As You notes, “Whether it’s a direct attack on gay customer or employees or an attack on particular employees role in a pro-gay capacity, this situation is still about the company supporting diversity (something the AFA resists at every turn).”

AFA has a long history of silly, offensive boycotts against, among others, Wal-Mart (for selling “Brokeback Mountain” DVDs), Ford Motor Company (for advertising in gay-friendly publications), and the American Girl dolls (because the maker contributed to a youth organization that was pro-choice and supported the acceptance of lesbians). In 2005, it called off its unsuccessful nine-year boycott of Disney (for its “embrace of the homosexual lifestyle“).

McDonald’s should follow Disney’s lead and ignore the right-wing protests. After all, during the nine years AFA was boycotting Disney, the company saw record profits.

Why´s that? I own a psp it would be a great addition to my library

I would rather see it on a console, not a handheld.
4783  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Suikoden VI on PSP?! on: July 03, 2008, 04:57:24 PM

German news site GameFront recently posted an interesting story regarding the listing of Suikoden VI for the PSP on a retailer's website. The story has been roughly translated on the NeoGAF forums. The retailer was in Japan and the entry has been removed -- but the rumors live on. Is Konami hard at work on Suikoden VI and moving the series onto the PSP? Or was it a clerical error and should have read PS3? Either way, until Konami makes a statement, we'll have to wait and see if anything comes up at E3 or the Tokyo Game Show.

I hope this isn't true.

Judge Orders YouTube to Give All User Histories to Viacom
By Ryan Singel EmailJuly 02, 2008 | 7:16:54 PMCategories: Copyrights and Patents  

Youtubelogo2 Google will have to turn over every record of every video watched by YouTube users, including users' names and IP addresses, to Viacom, which is suing Google for allowing clips of its copyright videos to appear on YouTube, a judge ruled Wednesday.

Viacom wants the data to prove that infringing material is more popular than user-created videos, which could be used to increase Google's liability if it is found guilty of contributory infringement.

Viacom filed suit against Google in March 2007, seeking more than $1 billion in damages for allowing users to upload clips of Viacom's copyright material. Google argues that the law provides a safe harbor for online services so long as they comply with copyright takedown requests.

Although Google argued that turning over the data would invade its users' privacy, the judge's ruling (.pdf) described that argument as "speculative" and ordered Google to turn over the logs on a set of four tera-byte hard drives.

The judge also turned Google's own defense of its data retention policies -- that IP addresses of computers aren't personally revealing in and of themselves, against it to justify the log dump.

The Electronic Frontier Foundation has already reacted, calling the order a violation of the Video Privacy Protection act that "threatens to expose deeply private information."

The order also requires Google to turn over copies of all videos that it has taken down for any reason.

Viacom also requested YouTube's source code, the code for identifying repeat copyright infringement uploads, copies of all videos marked private, and Google's advertising database schema.

Those requests were denied in whole, except that Google will have to turn over data about how often each private video has been watched and by how many persons.
