I don't doubt that it's real.  You should have seen the manuals I got for my Sony NHD mp3 player and my bicycle.  Both contained a plethora of pictures of the absolutely worst, most tragic things that might happen to you if you used the products.  They were hilarious.  I think I took a pic.  I'll see if I can find it.

I tend to be middle of the road. I don't usually use it in normal conversation but sometimes just to spice things up.  When I'm playing sports or FPS games then that's a whole different ballgame.  In sports I'm swearing at myself and in FPS games I'm swearing at people that kill me.

Well I got good news back from my girlfriend tonight!  Sony just sent back a fixed PSP.  It only took about a week and a half.  I chafe at those buggers for ripping me off everytime I buy a Sony product but I have to give them credit for fixing free of charge the PSP that I bricked by trying to install illegal software!  I'm not going to push my luck anymore-no more firmware rollbacks for me! Give me 3.01 any day baby!  icon_biggrin

Bah the last time someone made a post like this I ended up bricking my PSP! >.<  I'm hoping that Sony is going to fix it for me.

Wow can you imagine being able to play FFVII and Chrono Cross on the PSP?? That would be unbelievable.  The PSP would go from having almost no good RPG's to having a ridiculous amount of beautiful looking (for the PSP or DS anyways) RPGs just like that!

Well I'd certainly HOPE so!  It would be a shame to take a step backwards.  Your summary makes me want to read an animated cartoon involving the three consoles.  It would be fun to watch the PS3 plotting and scheming against his hated enemy the Xbox 360 in the land of Microsofistan.

The Xbox is already a very respectable system for RPG's. There are actually some gamers out there who don't care about JRPG's.

A respectable system for RPG's that you can already play on the PC with better controls and graphics.  Other than that it doesn't have much.  I didn't really recognize any of those games listed in the first post but it certainly looks like a long list!

You know, in the end, it is a BLOG.  He isn't writing for a gaming site, or any particular audience for that matter, he writes because he enjoys sharing his thoughts and opinions.  If you don't like it, don't read it.  I personally look forward to reading new entries at his site, including his stories about Eli.

The way I look at it, as a blogger he's free to write about whatever he wants to.  And as a reader, I'm free to complain about whatever I want to. smile
5058  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / PS3 and used games on: November 28, 2006, 10:42:41 AM
I remember a few months ago reading horror stories about how Sony was going to make it so that only the original purchaser of a game would be able to play it on their own PS3.  So now that the PS3 is out, for those that bought it, is there any indication that you won't be able to resell your game once you tire of it?  Or were those reports all fearmongering?

5060  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Bill Harris, WE GET IT - you hate Sony (Dubious Quality) on: November 28, 2006, 02:30:04 AM
I really enjoy reading Bill's blog.  I check it every day basically.  But I disagree with a lot that he says.  First of all-I'm tired of the Sony bashing.  Who knows, maybe he will be right.  Who cares though?  You don't need to repeat it every single fucking post.  Secondly he's always going back to something he predicted previously to show how always right he is but he also sweeps things under the rug as Kobra said.  Paraworld was supposed to be the second coming of RTS Christ.  Thirdly, I'm tired of reading about his goddamn kid.  I suppose many of you have children as well and enjoy the anecdotes but all I care about are the games. And speaking of which, I'm tired of basically everything in there that isn't game related.  All those links, and stories from readers etc etc etc. I don't give a shit about readers stories.  Anyways it's his blog so he can write whatever he wants I guess.  It's just a shame that it wasn't more game related because he very often has a lot of interesting points to get across.
5061  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: PS2 USB port on: November 27, 2006, 07:20:00 AM
Technically I think the USB ports were there from the begining. Some games had mouse and keyboard support I think.  Not sure which ones though.

This is part of the reason why backward compatability is a non-issue for me in the HDTV generation. Put any xbox/PS2/gamecube game on a decent sized HDTV and you get to see all those glaring graphic defects and jaggies. Playing FF12 on my friend's 42" LCD is just painful.

It must be a shame to be a graphics whore Tongue  Missing out on all those great games that have basically everything else.  Of course I don't have a 42" LCD tv so I guess I don't really have anything to compare it to.  I bet I'd rather play FFXII than that mediocre Xbox 360 RPG that I don't even remember the name of anymore.  Or the PS3's first mediocre RPG for that matter.

I'm not even sure what you're accusing me of here.  Are you saying I'm anti-Wii? I'm pro-Wii??  I don't even have a Wii (or an Xbox 360 or a PS3) so I'm certainly not going to play any of them.  I have no idea what I said in the PS3 thread but as for the other thread, I was commenting about the fat jackasses who play bowling while sitting down and not about the wii itself.  You're obviously in need of some kind of medication and I don't think it's valium.

I just found it strange that there are more threads right now for a console that was released a year ago then there are for a console that was released 4 days ago.

Maybe becuase people can actually go to a store and buy one?  icon_wink



Fair enough, but then how do you explain the plethora of PS3 threads?  I'm sure there are more Wii owners on this board then there are PS3 owners.  I just found it odd as hell that the Wii seemed to be MIA from the boards.  Anyway that was yesterday-perhaps today is a different story.

Seriously, what in the world has been up your ass the last few days? You are seriously obsessed with the Wii to extend of absolutely bashing the other consoles, you are wondering why we don't have essentially an entire forums worth of posts for a console that is brand new and most people don't have...and you are trying to tell us that because Bill Harris, an internet blogger that has no more insight into the next-gen console wars than any of us declares the Wii the winner after ONE WEEK we should all wonder why we aren't talking about it more? Dude, get a grip.

Are you referring to me?  For one thing I haven't been bashing any consoles lately and secondly I've been in Kyoto for the past 4 days so I haven't even been posting lately.  I just found it strange that there are more threads right now for a console that was released a year ago then there are for a console that was released 4 days ago.
5067  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Can someone point me to the Nintendo forum? on: November 24, 2006, 11:54:36 AM
I'm assuming that there is one because there's basically one Wii-themed thread on the first page and that is in regards to selling one.  The Wii was just released a couple of days ago wasn't it?  No Zelda threads or anything?  Is it because everyone is so busy playing it?  Or is everyone just generally apathetic towards the Wii?  The oh so omniscient Bill from Dubious Quality has already declared the Wii the winner of the next generation console war.  He really ought to come check out this forum for a rebuke.

*edit* at second count there appears to be more than one Wii thread but none with great enthusiasm

Nope, all hd disc formats are coming in those slightly undersized boxes.  However, the PS3 ones are that semi-transparent plastic, which has always looked really cheap to me.  They also use it for the PSP cases, but for those, the artwork covers most of the plastic.  The PS3 label leaves a lot more of it exposed, and I think it looks awful.

Phew! Fortunately I caught that in time because I base all my movie and  console purchases based on what the case looks like!  Roll Eyes

Sony isn't going to redesign the controller.  It's stayed basically the same ever since the Playstation 1.

Holy shit. Holy fucking shit.

It's a God Damned GAME SYSTEM for Christ's sake. What the hell has this world come to!

It's not a game system anymore.  It's basically a free $1500 profit.  I consider myself a pretty hardcore gamer but I had no idea that the 360 was going to be a huge thing on Ebay and I didn't pick up on that then I'm pretty sure that most casual gamers never thought of it either.  But now everyone and their grandmother want to sell one on Ebay.  Just one more thing to blame the evil Microsoft empire on.  mad  Of course, console makers could also get their shit together and actually make sure that they have a decent stock available before they release.
5079  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: PS3 Launch Thread on: November 17, 2006, 12:33:35 PM
One could almost say that the PS3 is already far superior to the XBOX 360 because nobody ever rioted for a 360.  Of course, someone could make the counterpoint that PS3 fans are far less civilized than 360 fans smile
5080  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: PS3 Launch Thread on: November 17, 2006, 12:27:38 PM
I seriously doubt that any of these people are actually gamers.  People only do crazy shit like that for one thing-money.  It sorta brings a little more perspective to the whole 'it's my PS3 so I'll Ebay it for $2000 if I like' mentality.  If you Ebay your PS3 or Xbox 360 then perhaps you are contributing to the downfall of society (indirectly of course).
