The S. Koreans say alot worse about the Japanese.


You know, you just have to look in the right places (be it in Japan or South Korea or any other country for that matter), and you will always find people who say worse things than the example cited by Ryan. However that obviously wasn't his point.


And fair enough, that's not what I meant.

I just meant I'm stunned (not as much now, just saddened) to hear Koreans talk about Japan. It's drilled into them from an early age that Japan is the devil.

A typical conversation goes something like:

"Japan is bad".

Me - "Why?"

"Because".

Me - "Because why?"

"Just because".

Me - "Just because why? "

"Teacher! Stop bugging me!"

Interesting news, if true.

Apparently you don't have a soul or some nonsense if you skip them.


1) I live in S. Korea, and I can't get them.

2) I refuse to pay $100-$150 for a computer version of Simon.

5291  Media / The Soundroom / THE TOP 107 GUITAR RIFFS =^.^= on: October 10, 2007, 10:25:08 PM
Eruption isn't a riff.

Spirit of Radio doesn't have one either.

There are plenty of Rush riffs - especially on the first two albums. d

Paranoid at the bottom? Bullshit.

Rubbish list.
5292  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Star Wars prequel trilogy questions... on: October 10, 2007, 10:18:41 PM
I always thought Sifo Dyas was a riff on Sidious (the Emperor), and that it was the Emperor who ordered the clone, in preparation for the coming war he was setting up.

I thought the Emperor was Darth Sidious, not Tyranus. I'll have to re-watch them.

As for Sidious creating Anakin, that's what seems to be implied, and that's what I always took from it.

Because of this, I've often been called a wuss, a no-talent gamer, a cheater or whatnot.


Neal, arent you the guy that enjoys the MegaTen series above most others?.


Well, they're certainly one of my favourites, but I prefer Suikoden overall.

I'm with everyone here. I don't want frustration when I play games. I want to relax and enjoy it. Which is why I enjoy certain genres of games over others.

I've played MGS enough that I can play them on normal now.....but stuff like God of War is easy all the way for me. And FPS? Unless it's the original Doom or Duke Nukem, I don't even bother.

Anyone picked this up?

I've heard various bits about a big suprise during the game that doesn't sound that appealing, but I would still like to pick it up when I head back to Canada for Xmas.

Impressions?
