  1. Myth: The SPP is a movement to merge the United States, Mexico, and Canada into a North American Union and establish a common currency.


    Fact: The cooperative efforts under the SPP, which can be found in detail at www.spp.gov, seek to make the United States, Canada and Mexico open to legitimate trade and closed to terrorism and crime. It does not change our courts or legislative processes and respects the sovereignty of the United States, Mexico, and Canada. The SPP in no way, shape or form considers the creation of a European Union-like structure or a common currency. The SPP does not attempt to modify our sovereignty or currency or change the American system of government designed by our Founding Fathers.



  2. the problem with keyboards is they don't register more then 3 button presses at a time. try it in a reply, press 4 buttons simultaneously. nothing will happen or only 1 or 2 of the keystrokes will register.

    That's not entirely true. If I try to press four buttons at once it starts making an annoying error beep.


    And I'll go try out a fighter using the keyboard. SF2 seems like a decent start. Gimme a bit.


    Edit: Okay, I could barely pull off a hadoken using the keyboard. That's how bad it was. Maybe if I had a better keyboard it would work, I don't know. I'm sticking to sticks.

  3. That's true, mostly. Except a lot of other people have already bought into it, so now the current hardware is the standard and people aren't going to stop developing for it. I could start a campaign for boycotting future hardware, but I don't think anyone would follow me. Kind of how no one is going to follow that American who thinks he's Japanese.


    On a side note, I had no idea of Persona 4 or any other new PS2 games, and I have a lot of respect for Blizzard for stepping back a bit on their hardware requirements.

  4. I'm calling who cares which system's graphics look better?

    People who shell out the same price should get the same product.


    And I hate anyone who comes to a gaming board with that 'it's all about the gameplay' attitude. Graphics matter, else how the hell do you justify the price of consoles, let alone that 1Gb GX2 that is always sold out when I turn up at MSY?

    I can only justify the price of new hardware because software developers use only the latest and best when developing. If developers today used the hardware of yesterday, then I'd gladly not pay the extra hundreds of dollars for today's graphics.

  5. Arcade/console ports to PC should never be played with a keyboard, unless the game in question is either a FPS or a [realtime] strategy game.



    Because the keyboard is a terrible input device for just about everything. The mouse is nice for FPS and RTS games, but some people even prefer a controller for their FPS'.

  6. 1UP: FFVII's characters are so beloved that they'll probably never go away, right? Just like Mickey Mouse....


    SH: [Laughs] That's true, because today's 15-year-old kids were only 5 when the game released. Even though they weren't interested in it then, now they're getting into it. We're seeing a new cycle of fans emerging....


    That made me think they're planning a remake of 7.

    That made you think they were doing a remake? Not the announcement that's supposed to shock fans? :D

  7. Last weekend I watched a collection of movies.


    I watched, Wanted, which was decent, but some of the story really makes you wonder what people were thinking. I don't know who in that timeline decided it would be a good idea to decipher a binary code printed out in cloth from a loom and then kill whoever's name pops up, but I think they made a mistake somewhere. On a side note, the cam I was watching was about half a screen too far to the left, and tilted about 45 degrees. I didn't notice until the credits.


    Also watched Speed Racer, which was terrible. I don't think there was a point in the movie where a racer was driving straight. Even on a long straight stretch of track, they managed to drift the entire thing, except for when they purposely spun out. Way too many flashing lights, too. Significant portions of the movie were just big blurs of color.


    I'm sure I watched some others but I can't remember them.

  8. Well, I finally got around to playing it on the 360 this morning, and I have to say that I think this game is amazing. I really want to sit down with it for a good long while and play through it all the different ways I can. Depending on the ETA for the port, I might wait, see how it does on the Wii, and then play it there.

  9. I didn't find any of the things Black Knight did especially detracting from the movie. I also didn't have very high expectations of the movie. I think the Joker as an "Agent of Chaos" suited the character just fine, and made for some very interesting scenes.



    My biggest complaint about the movie was Two-Face. Up until the part where he died, his scenes would've made a great lead in to a sequel, but because of his death that just won't happen, so his character felt ultimately short lived. The redeeming feature to this is that it was never explicitly stated that he was dead, and I seem to remember his last scene depicting him as still breathing.


  10. The joy of the game mostly arises from having many zombies on screen and doing some major ass kicking in various ways, if they lower the zombie count to make up for the Wii's poo poo hardware, then some of the joy will be lost from the original port.

    I don't think they're lowering the zombie count. Probably texture levels and such.

  11. I don't see the problem with a game being two years old. People seemed ecstatic when they heard they were releasing Chrono Trigger on the DS, and that game is 10+ years old. And bad.


    I can understand a concern that porting something from the 360 to the Wii might not work perfectly, but I'll wait and see how they do.

  12. It's not so bad that it's unplayable. In fact, there isn't really anything better out right now. Warhammer might outdo it, but with those content cuts, I wonder.


    I'm currently playing Horde on the Akama server, and have some Alliance on Dalvengyr.


    On topic, this game looks unimpressive. I'm not sure this could get any more generic. It talks of a fancy combat system, but I'm not sure whether it's any good, or even if it's actually unique.


    There's some poor quality youtube vids around of the aerial combat from korean beta servers. You might get an idea off those but I wouldn't recommend it.


    And I'm not sure WoW is the pinnacle of originality either when it comes to how generic it is.

    Maybe not the pinnacle of originality, no, but basing it in the Warcraft universe automatically boosts it above something as generic looking as Aion Online. It's like AO isn't even attempting to make themselves look original, like they've accepted that MMOs in general are all the same in art and flavor anyway, so there's no point.


    WoW has a unique art style. Not an especially good art style, but unique among fantasy MMOs. The story is pretty generic, but it's based off of Warcraft, so they can't deviate too much from the plot of 1990, when it had been done fewer times, and they only really needed a generic plot to throw behind another simple video game of the 90s. They also came up with the rage and energy systems, rather than every character running off of mana. At least, that was the first I had seen of them. The runic power system being used for the Death Knights looks unique as well, taking a new approach to the traditional "evil melee tank" class done so often in other MMOs.
