I don't read Harris often, but the little I have makes me wonder why people find his opinions so golden.  I've never seen anything particularly insightful from him, just hype factory bullshit in favor of whatever the percieved underdog is (Paraworld, the Wii, etc).

As evidenced by the last two presidential elections (or XBox Live), the majority of Americans* are ignorant, racist, jingoistic, homophobic fuckwits.

With your having called several times in the past for civil war and genocide against all conservative Christians, I'd say you're really not qualified to be passing judgement on your fellow Americans.
Considering being a conservative Christian makes you an ignorant, racist, jingoistic, homophobic fuckwit by default, I don't really think you have a point.

It was on sale at Best Buy for $20 last week.  Sadly I missed the sale.  So, if your copy is complete, I'll pay $20 shipped for it.

I couldn't pick it up -- didn't get to BB in time.  However, if anyone wants to sell me their copy for $10...

If you hit tilde and bring down the console, typing showfps will give you an FPS readout at the top of your screen.

Yeah...

Smash Brothers without the combos and charm is about how I'd sum it up.


Or the quality.  Pretty disappointing game -- it's like Soldat minus the good.

It doesn't surprise me at all that O'Reilly and Fake News are more popular than, say, CNN.  Or even, heaven forbid, the BBC.

IMO, Nintendo's ability to prevent piracy (or at least easy piracy) has generally been why "Nintendo Makes Money (tm)".  GCN may not have been a sales giant, but at least a vast majority of the games sold for it were legit sales.
That's also retarded.

Quote from: skystride on November 22, 2006, 07:08:18 PM

I haven't played Resistance yet but I think GoW is just an average FPS.  The single player game has no variety.  Here I am nearing the end of the game and I'm still using the same tactics and gun I used at the start of the game.  If there is a story, I'm still looking for it. 

From what I've read about Resistance, it sounds like it is more my kind of FPS (variety of weapons being one reason).
Buh...?

Resistance = generic FPS (run & gun).  GoW = cover-based FPS.

Oh, the hilarity of the continued slaps against the Wii for allegedly not being "next-gen" enough.
What's so hilarious about that?  Nintendo went from being on top of the hardware world with the SNES to a long, steady decline in the competitive quality of their hardware.  And before some moron drools all over that point with spittle about GAEMPWAY, let me go ahead and say that yeah, Nintendo's pretty good at making games.  Those games would be even better on modern hardware.

And yes, that screenshot is of the game I've got!
27  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Prediction : PS3 launch stumbles ... speculating created false market demand. on: November 20, 2006, 02:42:09 AM
The launch is a wreck, that's for sure, but every unit will sell, and every unit of subsequent shipments will sell, probably into the Spring.

Sony has nothing to worry about in terms of hardware sales.

I've got King of the Elves, a card game, that I've been looking to foist.  It's worth like $15 I think?  If you were interested in it, would you take it and $24 for Enchanted Arms?

I think I'll buy it at $20.  I can forgive it for being a WW2 game at that price.

I'll buy one when there are enough good games on it to justify the purchase.

Yeah, blah blah $500 or $600 system -- I paid $2200 for a new gaming computer a year ago, yet I don't see many people bitching about the price of top of the line hardware...
Then you aren't paying quite enough attention. Gaming rig prices-especially top of the line vid cards and chips have been out of control for several years, and are probably at least one factor pushing people towards consoles.

Last-gen Final Fantasy would suck anyway.
Clearly you haven't played FFXII on the PS2.  *drool*  Fantastic game and a great cap to the 'last gen' stuff. 
I have played it, and it's a fine last hurrah, but given the time it takes to crank out a Final Fantasy game, (2-3 years last I checked?), last gen is just going to be unacceptable at that point.

If your kids a.) can read and b.) know what that word means, sounds to me like the cat's already out of the bag.

I really hope SquareEnix is sitting in meetings with Nintendo talking about how to get FF on to the Wii. 
Thankfully there's hard proof they're not.  FFXIII will be on PS3.

Last-gen Final Fantasy would suck anyway.

Clearly it's not an average, because if you did actually average the scores, you'd get 8.7, which is just a tenth of a point off of Gamespot's review.

I've tried to unequip that thing and i can't.  It's greyed out and i can't swap it out or anything.  I've tried using Vox and the potions from other characters but it won't work.  Gotta figure out how to unequip it i guess.

Not sure how i want to level my group.  I definitely prefer Vaan, Bashe, Fran, and Ashe.   
Try using the "Remove" command in the equip interface.
