  1. Like you said the GBA was a huge mistake with only two buttons
    hmm, have you used a GBA... it actually have 4 buttons - 2 shoulder. There is a great interview witht he designer of GBA in the latest Equip magazine which I would recommend for reading - very entertaining indeed.


    Snes is superior in a very rose tinted way.

  2. All religions have various interpretations placed upon them. The ambiguity of the scriptures and other religious works written many hundreds of years ago makes this easy. It is certainly not only religion that has this massive problem, and it is a problem. Most democratic legal systems are filled with cases which see two parties arguing the toss over the same law – I do sometimes feel that this is a major flaw in religion per se however, as a book containing the foundations of a ‘faith’ should not be ambiguous, or contain massive contradictions.

  3. hated the N64 version, especially the battle mode (why the big stupid huge arenas?).
    Absolutely. What I have found very irksome about the N64 addicts is that they always made out it was the multiplayer that made it the 'great game' it was! I guess the younger you are the more likely you are to relish the title that was fresh for you, rather than appreciate the quality that was offered by a former era.

  4. I really wonder how big your Pc capacities would have to be to run a PS2 emulator. It is not quite as powerful as the X-Box, but it will be far harder to emulate. So easy is the X-Box to manipulate that we can run excellent emulators on, it, already.


    The PS2 will give a different headache to what has been faced before, I mean a lot of media time was given to the 'emotion engine' but as the PS2 developed and has been developing we have seen the second chip become the driving force - the Graphics Synthesiser which acts in a very non traditional way for a graphics chip. Paul Holman President Sony Europe) was pained by even developers becoming sidetracked by the promise of the emotion engine.


    I wonder if emulation of later titles will be possible on an unmodified PC.

  5. i agree with u there about the matrix it was just to confuse people into believing it was pseudo philosophy, i would also recommend total recall for open endings(love that film) Rushmore and virgin suicides as good films. virgins suicides is quite open ended


    Total Recall was OK, but Arnie could have been replaced with a good actor which would have improved it no end. Sharon Stone is at her slutty best though. I have to say that Rushmore is an amazing film - I presume you have seen his latter Tennebaum film; but have you seen bottle rocket. If not I would recommend, just out of personal interest (I once found an entire forum devoted to Wes Andersons films – funny). The Wilson brothers are superb. (I think one of the Owen brothers is in fact his co-writer on some projects).
