Does it have a map?

I was wrong.  When you are on the world map the top screen shows an overview map and the places you've been are marked.  It doesn't show you where you need to go next though.

Quote from: godhugh
That's been a staple in FF games for as long as I can remember, not sure if it's in the new ones but it was in all the old ones. I'd always just run around hitting A in all the tall grass, pots, clocks, bookshelves, etc... in order to find the hidden items. They're usually just potions, but sometimes you'd get something better (like a tincture in FFVI, hooray!).

Yeah I know.  But that doesn't mean I have to like it.   icon_evil  Especially when the game goes out of it's way to show you how to zoom in and make something sparkle that's interactable.

The sparks are to show secrets not just items that are interactive.

"The net result of all of this -- performance, camera, A.I., interface -- severely sours the experience and tests the patience of those who simply want to boot the game and play. Who wants to work this hard to have fun?"



Sorry, but once again I have to disagree.  I have an old P4 3.2 ghz, 1gb RAM (crappy PC2700) and a 7800 GS (was originally running the game with a Radeon 9800 XT)

I have never once had a crash.  I can run the game at 30+ FPS at 1280x1024, High settings on everything but shadows and water reflections.  The camera isn't a problem for me, I never have difficulty positioning it where I want it.  The AI isn't great, but it isn't bad either, I have never had it take away from my experience, and the interface is beautiful.  Everything I need is either a rightclick or one keystroke away.

I don't understand the bad performance people have on systems way better then mine. 

And yet, the issues are real, regardless of how well it happens to perform on your rig. I've got an AMD 4800 w/ 2 gigs of RAM and an ATI XT1900 and while it runs acceptably, it still chugs far too much for the system I've got.

Yeah, obey any LAWFUL order.  IIRC, Watada's logic is that this is an illegal war, therefore, his orders to go fight it is itself illegal.  Hence, no need to obey. 

IIRC, again, he tried to compromise by asking to be sent to Afganistan instead, but was denied. 

I'm not saying, "go Watada!" or anything.

"Unlawful" order means it goes against the Constitution or the Uniform Code of Military Justice. The individuals at Abu Ghraib were guilty because they followed an unlawful order as defined by the set laws. It doesn't mean a person can just say "I think that this war is illegal" and not fulfill his or her duty as a military member. Otherwise, there would be total chaos as half the people would be disobeying orders left and right just because they disagreed with them.

ETA: The miltary isn't a travel agency. He can't just request Afghanistan instead of Iraq. How fair would that be to the person who would have to fill his slot? We go where we're told. I've gone to Afghanistan and to Kuwait in the past few years and I wasn't excited about either one (and am opposed to us being in Iraq), yet I went to do my duty.

Man, we seriously need to start giving out more Medals of Honor.  If you read through a lot of the transcripts of those awarded in Vietnam, a lot of these guys are doing the same things.  Especially guys who take a grenade. 

MoH's take time, so it could definitely happen.

The password is...boring!!

I thought that the opening scene with the three stories of coincidences was the best part, which is not so great in a three hour film.

My cousin's a SEAL in that same unit. I can't imagine doing what he does over there. I hope that this SEAL's story is publicized far and wide so that people will see that there are still heroes in our military. Regardless of what anybody thinks of the war (and I have definite feelings about it and our current leadership), this type of sacrifice needs to be known.

I've seen a couple previews saying it had an older guy using the PSP in it and a young kid using the DS.. sort of showing Nintendo with a "kiddy" image and the PSP for older gamers.
Any comments on the videogame-related stuff in the movie?


There was a guy playing the PSP and there was mention of Playstation and XBox, but there was neither any mention or sightings of any Nintendo product. Oops, spoiler!

Do you buy movies on DVD? If so, isn't it more of a value to get 13 episodes, plus the original miniseries for $45 on Amazon than a 2 hour film for $20? I understand not wanting to plunk down $80 for those HBO sets, but BSG is pretty cheap considering.
