2641  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Star Wars - Episode III Impressions (OMG SPOILERS) on: May 31, 2005, 07:30:08 PM
Quote from: "Ibby"
And speaking of blind Jedi, how come they have this entire sensorium of security holograms watching Palpatine and probably everything else that goes on around the city, and yet Obi Wan can push a button in an instant to see that:

1) Ah! Anakin slaughtered the Jedi Temple.  
2) Aha! Palpatine is the Sith Lord!  
3) Oh look! Anakin is the new apprentice.


That hologram sequence was taken within the Jedi temple itself.  Chances are pretty good that they had security cameras there, that they could access there.

Of course, that still doesn't explain the 'highlight reel' that Obi-Wan got, but, hey...
2642  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Where did your online name come from? on: May 25, 2005, 02:14:39 PM
Well, it originally started as a comic book character a friend of mine and I created back in high school, The Fool.  Didn't really think much about it until a few years later when I rediscovered comics and started trying to do my own again.  The Fool pretty much became my mascot at that point.  Later, when I started doing freelance work I decided to call my 'company' FoolishStudios and my avatar here is part of my brand.

Having been on the E3 floor trying to decipher what a rep was telling me about a game through the noise pollution surrounding us, I can tell you I much preferred what Bethesda did.

Unfortunately their next project will be from Atari who also doesn't have good record with giving devs all the time they need either.


Not to mention the fact that they still owe some devs money....

Ron and I got a hands on with the gameboy micro today and I'm a helluva lot more impressed than I thought I was going to be.  In fact, I kind of wanted one, it's pretty damn cool.  I'm going to try and work on a write-up tonight.

We talked about Muppets- specifically, Fraggle Rock and The Muppet Show.  One of them admitted her childhood desire to be Janice, the bass player from the Electric Mayhem.

Other than that we talked about the shitty power outtage situation.

2652  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Eventhough most here don't care, here's some Revolution news on: May 14, 2005, 05:33:16 AM
I don't think that that is a spot for the revolution- I think it's for something else they will unveil.  Everybody is mistaking this for the revolution, and IGN is claiming it's a fake (but they are refering to it as a fake revolution leak).

It's too good to be fake.  Even if it isn't a real product launch, I'm betting it's some kind of mock-up by their marketing dept.  It feels like an E3 video that's to be splashed on huge monitors.  It feels like Nintendo for sure.
2653  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Eventhough most here don't care, here's some Revolution news on: May 14, 2005, 03:37:28 AM
sources are saying this is fake, but I wouldn't be surprised if this is real....

mind you, I'm not saying this is Revolution, but what exactly are those two devices that it's showing connecting to 4.5 minutes in?  one of them is a gamecube...

Dimmona, I understand your weeping.  The good ol' days of GG are gone...
This isn't Gone Gold (thankfully).  CG is not intended as a GG replacement.  CG is it's own site.


While this is certainly true, we staff would like to think that CG is keeping some of that Gone Gold spirit alive.

That said, I hope they keep the competition tight on this next wave- as gamers that can be nothing but good for us  Cool

The only thing that is remotely surprising about that is that someone actually admitted to it.

even then, it's not that surprising.

Nice!  Meanwhile, I still can't afford to insure my family even though I'm making more money than I ever have in my life.  Even when I was unemployed we didn't qualify for medical assistance because I was not the right ethnicity (or so I was told at the time).

2667  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Revenge of the Sith - Anyone else getting it? on: May 09, 2005, 03:50:41 PM
Yup.  I concur with AgtFox.  This game would score way higher if they would have included live support, btw.  lightsaber duels online would have been SWEET.
2668  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Jade Empire 98%??? on: May 08, 2005, 04:53:29 AM
Hell, I was surprised when I saw it- that's the highest score this site has ever given a game!  I don't think Ron gave it that score lightly...

Basically, though, all it boils down to the fact that he just liked it a helluva lot more than you do.
2669  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Revenge of the Sith - Anyone else getting it? on: May 08, 2005, 02:20:30 AM
Hmnnn... just finished the single player (not yet the bonus ending, tho) and I'm starting to think that I should've rented, not bought.  My estimate of the game is now closer to a 75 or 80.  multiplayer is still pretty fun, tho
2670  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Revenge of the Sith - Anyone else getting it? on: May 07, 2005, 09:43:10 PM
I'm mostly through the single player and I'd say I pretty much agree with the team xbox review for the most part.  I'd rate it a solid 80, with an 85-87 score for those that are rabid star wars fans like myself.  It actually reminds me of the spiderman 2 game in some ways- wonderful execution in some parts (combat system is fun as hell) but some gameplay issues like too much repetition in enemies.

I wish it was live enabled so that we could go head-to head against each other with the splendid lightsaber combat system!!

well, considering it's mostly footage from the trailer (slightly expanded), I wouldn't consider it spoiler material.

It's not like the ending is any mystery...

Kohan.

Of course, working for the company that made it  contributed greatly, but when I started beating the programmers and the owner of the company regularly subsequent patches tended to nerf some of my tactics....

Still, it was fun handing my boss' ass to him every now and then biggrin

Anyone know when the new animated Clone Wars chapters will start airing. They've already shown episode 21 and 22 in the UK but I have not seen anything yet here in the states frown.


Try, like, a month ago?  They were way better than the first batch IMO.  I'm sure they'll repeat 'em as the movie gets closer.

"Revenge of the Sith" is, quite simply, fucking awesome. This is the "Star Wars" prequel the haters have been bitching for since "Menace" came out, and if they don't cop to that when they finally see it, they're lying.

Quote from: "unbreakable"
I truly and honestly hope you arent taking the position that, sans Fonda, they would have been at a complete and total loss of propaganda material.  PLEASE say that isnt the case.


How in the hell can you draw that assumption from what I said?  I never made any such assertion.  The footage w/ Jane Fonda made for an arguably better propaganda tool, certainly, but I'm sure that they, like us, were churning it out at a regular pace.

Quote
If she didnt do something foolish, she wouldnt be apologizing now, huh?  Your problem is in thinking Im defending her; Im not.  Im saying she expressed her opinion, as was (and is) her right to do.  Im not saying that she was right, Im just saying she has just as much right to have a well thought out and intelligent opinion as she does a poorly formed and stupid one.


And I agree with that assertion.  It's just when you go to and cavort with the enemy in their own country be prepared for the backlash it's going to cause.  And be prepared to be called a traitor.

Quote
So when you go and start flaming someone on an internet forum because their opinion doesnt fall in lockstep with yours, it just serves to make you sound like a fool.


I seem to recall my involvement in this diatribe starting with pointing out that your comparisons to GWB and Christian saints to be fallacious.  So, who's the more foolish?

Quote
So it's alright for our nation's leaders to have lavish dinners with the leaders of China, Saudi Arabia, etc., and to accept large monetary donations from them, but for a celebrity to behave in a similar manner is somehow a different moral issue?


Of course it's alright for our nation's leaders to have lavish dinners with the leaders of China, Saudi Arabia, etc.- it's part of their job, and it's called diplomacy.  Why can't you see the distinction between political leaders and celebrities?

Quote
Ah, I see.  They can inform themselves, they just have to shut up if you dont like what they have to say.


Again, you are putting words in my mouth.  I have never stated that anyone should shut up- including you.

Quote
Oh yeah, Im the one sounding foolish.  Tell 007 I said "hi"


I said military intelligence, not counter-intelligence.  Is it so far a reach that I may know a few people who are actually in the military?

And with that, I'm done with this little distraction.  I'll just keep on refuting Unbreakable's inaccuracies and straw men, and he'll just keep on making personal attacks.  I'm bored now.
