2491  The Rest / General Discussions / Zero Punctuation on: December 07, 2007, 11:57:39 AM
Yahtzee's awesome.  I love those things.  He actually developed a game called The Art of Theft, so someone made a Zero Punctuation-style review of it.  Worth watching if you like Yahtzee's stuff.

Sweet!  I don't have access to CN on the 26th, so for once I'm actually looking forward to reruns!

I know alot of people who use fudge as a replacement for fuck, but you dont see fudge shops being asked to change their products name to something that might not be seen as something else, or whatever.  I think you get what I mean by it.

Hohohohoho!  That example filled my daily recommended allowance of Awesome.

Well, the part that knowing about Zwarte Piet didn't fill, at least. ;)  (Does Piet mean anything, or is it just a name?)

Yeah, I felt pretty much the same way.  I realize that it's kind of because they had to make some changes to make it the season finale, but sad just the same.  I'll keep watching next season, but it'd better be like the awesome episodes, and not like the bad ones.

It'd be interesting if you were right about Peter.  He can travel through time, after all, and something that happens during the next season may make him realize that he has to do that.

I was a little surprised that Hiro did something quite that dark to Adam.  He could have just frozen time, cut off his head, and Adam's dead.  Instead, it's "fate worse than death" time.  Of course, can Adam survive even when there's no oxygen?  Or would he suffocate after a while and only heal if he were dug up?  Or maybe just remain in some kind of almost dead state in the grave?  I'm sure we'll find out.
2495  The Rest / General Discussions / Activision and Vivendi merge to form Activision Blizzard on: December 03, 2007, 08:25:46 AM
To bring up a similar merging, I have a friend who works in Disney animation, and has since well before Pixar came in.  For anyone who doesn't know, Disney bought Pixar a few years ago (at least I think it's been that long), and everyone was worried at the time whether it'd work out or not.  Pixar had released only good stuff (I hated Nemo, but most people liked it), and Disney, while it had a good record at one point, was not releasing very good movies any more.  Disney had actually gotten rid of their 2D animation folks, because the bigwigs had decided that no one wanted to see 2D animation in the theater any more.

Well, Pixar came in and was given authority over the whole animation department.  They have hired back the 2D people, because they were able to explain to the bigwigs that it's not that people don't want to see 2D animation - it's that people don't want to pay $10 to see a bad movie.  My friend says that they've made lots of very good changes, and in the end, although people were nervous about the merger, it's turned out to be a really good thing.  Like games, animated movies take a really long time to come to fruition, so we're still waiting to see the product, but it'll be good stuff from what I've seen.

Hopefully this will go the same way.

that whole 'the entire world is flipped for right handed people' thing.

Can't you just switch which hand you're holding the wiimote and nunchuck in?
2497  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Recently Viewed Movies Episode 2: The Vampire Bites Back on: December 02, 2007, 03:13:53 PM
Not a movie, but I watched season 1 of Amazing Stories on DVD recently - it was interesting.  Some episodes were pretty decent, but I may have been giving those ones some nostalgia credit.  Most of them weren't very good.  It was a pretty big disappointment for me, because I thought "sweet!  I loved that show" when I saw the DVDs.

Now if they'd only release Misfits of Science...

I'm surprised nobody's mentioned Final Fantasy Tactics yet. I remember reading the Book of Germanus on Good Friday when playing it through for the first time...

If it makes you feel any better, that's the game I was going to mention. :)

Disgaea's another good one that's already been mentioned that I would have mentioned if it hadn't been, and it's been recently re-released.

I know I'm not bringing any new games to the table here, but I have to emphasize Halo.  That whole conflict is based on religion, and it was a hugely successful game.

If you want to go into games that are specifically designed to appeal to religious folks, there's always "The Bible Game..."
2499  The Rest / General Discussions / Reviewer fired over Kane & Lynch review...? on: December 01, 2007, 05:48:46 PM
Sad - he was one of the guys I liked more than some of the others.  Lord Scottish, I know that the two sites are connected, but I don't see a reason to stop visiting Metacritic.  They don't even post reviews of their own (at least not for games) - they just average out everyone else's score (including RPGFan's), which I always feel gives me a far more accurate feeling for how good a game is than any single review.

2501  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Heroes discussion on: November 20, 2007, 05:12:17 PM
I agree - this week's was another great episode, with an AWESOME ending.  Hiro's part was really really good, too.  Makes me sad the writers' strike will cut us off at the end of this story.

I don't like the repetition of powers either - it seems to me after this episode that the only reason for West to be a flier is so that they could set up the line where
Claire's mom says that girls go after guys like their dads, and her adopted dad could ask "because he can fly?"  Which is a stupid reason to have had him.

I have to disagree with you on one, though...
even though it's derivative, Monica has a different kind of super-memory than Charlie.  Charlie could remember anything she read, Monica can do anything she sees done.  So for example, if Monica saw someone speak Japanese, she wouldn't learn Japanese from it, and if Charlie read about how to do some fancy figure-skating move, she wouldn't learn how to do that.
2502  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Official (cause I said so) Mass Effect Thread...GO! on: November 20, 2007, 05:04:06 PM
Had to post a couple of comics on the subject, since my 360 is in the shop having a red-ring-ectomy (that sounds dirty, doesn't it?).

This Penny Arcade and the next two mean nothing to me.
2503  Media / The Soundroom / Robot Guitar. on: November 19, 2007, 12:09:54 AM
Wow.  As someone who doesn't play guitar, I can't even be sure I fully grasp what's being offered here, but auto-tuning sounds like 100 kinds of awesome, especially considering that (if I read correctly) it lets you set up multiple tuning sets.  If you're hardcore enough to spend what it must cost to buy one of these when they come out, you're probably hardcore enough to use alternate tunings...
2504  Media / Miscellaneous Games / A Ghostbusters game? WE GOT OOOOOOOOOONE! on: November 15, 2007, 09:55:43 AM
This game could be pure nostalgia gold.  I'm guessing they'll go with 3rd-person action, but I'm torn as to whether I'd guess that they'll go solo or squad.

- Cards fucking suck.

QFT.  I really tried to love the GBA Kingdom Hearts game, and couldn't manage for exactly that reason.  I've also tried several of the yu-gi-oh/pokemon trading card/whatever games, thinking "well, I'll give this one a shot, to try to be fair."  Never managed to like any of the card games.
