What picture.


Well, it wasn't really a picture, but a screen capture of the concept video.



But seeing as how they're still using FFXI-like style graphics to simulate it I'm assuming their next MMO is going look incredibly similar.

Not that I really mind since I like FFXI's art style, but I don't really see that many improvements yet.
1802  The Rest / General Discussions / Jack Thompson disbarred on: June 05, 2008, 05:55:11 AM
Hasn't it been a long time since Jack Thompson lost all credibility anyway? What difference does it make if he's still a lawyer or not, other than the fact that we have lost someone we can laugh at. =P

Got DRK past 37, so now I can move onto leveling another sub or something.

Lesson learned: play an MMO handled by a reputable company.  Speaking of which, Square needs to reveal Project Rapture's official title, getting sick of waiting.  Also would be nice to know what Bioware's working on.


I'm kind of wondering how far they're actually along with that game. The supposed picture of Project Rapture just seemed like a high-res version of FFXI.

This is Japan we're talking about sir, that'd be way too easy.

I don't think anyone gets attached to an MMO, but rather the community. It's the same as graduating from high school or retiring from your job, I'd say. You'll move onto better things more likely, but you'll still look back on it as a positive experience.

Goes to show that FFXI has lived really freaking long just through the Final Fantasy name alone. I don't think half as many people would've played it if it didn't have FF in the title. :P

OMG THREAD REVIVAL

Well, the movie is coming out in a few weeks so I suppose it's time to see how many people are psyched to go see it.
1808  The Rest / General Discussions / This is so great it cant be put into the Youtube thread on: May 28, 2008, 01:19:39 AM
Creepy. Reminds me of The Wizard of Oz with that one song...Dark Side of the Moon?
1809  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Who watch Bleach? on: May 28, 2008, 12:33:10 AM
As far as I know, Flame of Recca had the same long, drawn-out nature of any other shounen series in its manga form. The difference is that the anime was a bit more self-contained, and ended when it had to. It's fine to take forever in manga because it takes way less time to read than to watch a long, boring television show.

People should make more anime adaptations like that: You can use the anime to pique interest in the manga, but don't adapt the whole motherfucking thing into a television series.
1810  The Rest / General Discussions / So...who here still uses dialup? on: May 27, 2008, 11:54:36 AM
I think I knew...one person in high school who had dial up.

But his depraved family soon learned the disadvantages of not having high-speed when surfing porn. I mean the internet.
1811  Media / Single-Player RPGs / RPGs and Homosexuality on: May 27, 2008, 07:01:01 AM
Wrote a bunch of stuff and then lost it. But anyway, skimmed the thread only.

What's the point of having a character that's only gay for the sake of being gay if it's not going to be a central plot point somehow or key to his development as a character? It would feel like that the character is only gay as an afterthought...being gay has to have an effect on the actions he chooses.

Also for the whole "Is being gay right or wrong" thing, I'm on Bernhardt side to some degree, as I think that most straight people don't think being gay is right, but rather only accepting of it as long as it doesn't affect their lives directly- I think most people are just too politically correct to say they don't like homosexuality.

Yes, I'm uncomfortable with homosexuality in the same way I'm uncomfortable about incest and pedophilia. They're all sexual taboos, so how is one "more wrong" than the other? I have the "it has nothing to do with me, so I don't care" policy: I think gays should have rights because it's not like it matters to you as an individual if others are happy being gay.
1812  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Who watch Bleach? on: May 24, 2008, 09:47:53 PM
I only watch Shounen anime in passing sometimes. They usually translate out to me as "Screw around with several main villains while having no real central focus". The best kind of show is one where they don't focus on having to build up the world too goddamn much and just get the message across, like in Now and Then, Here and There.
1813  The Rest / General Discussions / Olbermann's got it... on: May 24, 2008, 09:37:14 PM
Same here. Saw this a few days ago, was pretty big news on some forums, people were going all "He's on the most epic rant of the centuries".

Olbermann is an excellent speaker and has a way with words with scripted monologues like this. But as I recall, he's not very good at actual debating and thinking on his feet.
1814  The Rest / General Discussions / I'm O.K. playthrough video - the Jack Thompson game on: May 22, 2008, 10:06:12 AM
Game's been out for several years as I recall, I distinctly remember beating it.

damn too bad for me i still cant watch this movie


damn too bad for you i've watched this movie now go feel sorry for yourself.

Anyway, movie kicked ass, don't think I can say much about it that nobody else has already said.

I do wonder how they'll make a sequel since
Code:
everyone knows he's Iron Man now
, but I guess they can pull some convenient explanation out of their ass if they have to.

Is that what happens in the comics? I'm not a big comic reader myself.
