  1. I'm glad Finland "won", at least what they put forth was a bit original (still not great tho).

    I'm trying very hard to think of how it was original. Screaming and shouting, I've seen before (and sometimes to better effect, too..) And underneath the screaming and shouting was a very, very typical Eurovision formula melody.

    So, yeah. Original... :shifty:

    Wait, wait. They had masks. Err, nope. Also done before.

  2. Don't know if we need another Sony thread, but this has to be one of the most arrogant quotes I've heard in a long time. From an interview with David Reeves:

    We have built up a certain brand equity over time since the launch of PlayStation in 1995 and PS2 in 2000 that the first five million are going to buy it, whatever it is, even [if] it didn't have games.

    I never really hated Sony until now. They don't deserve their number one spot any longer.

  3. Sadly still having problems running the game at home, albeit different ones this time. But it's awesome that Dan has been sending me e-mails regularly to check if I've been able to solve the problems.

    As for the new demo, played it at school and it's really bitching. Everyone check it out now! The game is still immensely enjoyable, simple fun. And now the intro music is totally awesome.

  4. I was just looking at them and thinking they looked pretty good, almost on par with the stuff from Dreamfall...

    Nooooo, no. No.

    While I agree that they've been getting a bit more crap than they deserve, and the characters look pretty detailed, they don't look better than Dreamfall. Dreamfall's got some great art direction. BS4 has next to none, in the screenshots.

  5. from an interview with Nintendo of America's senior director of public relations, Beth Llewelyn:

    IGN: Have you seen these Nintendo Go photographs floating around the Internet?

    Beth: You're about the fourth person who has asked me that. I have know idea what that is. I haven't been on the Internet yet today, but I have no idea what that is.

    IGN: Are you going to keep the name 'Virtual Console' for your Wi-Fi download service?

    Beth: That's my understanding.

    That Nintendo GO picture is fake, and Virtual Console is the name of the download service.

    Or he's just lying. Take your pick.

  6. I mostly felt bad for IGN, as they felt the need to include that last picture (you can barely see the console), which is obviously just there to "show her off". Lame as fuck.

    Well, on the bright side it shows how fucking small the Revolution is.

    Is anyone else hoping they just call it the Nintendo?

  7. If you're following Iwata's keynote at the GDC, then join in on the thread.

    Supposedly we'll get the final name of the console. Not big, but at least we get to say it's stupid. And that's always fun.

    Hopefully we get some new game info. At least a demonstration of how awesome the Revolution is..

    At any rate, there are pictures. Glorious pictures.

  8. Played it over at the school computers and had some awesome fun with it. It's super fast and I'm in love with the graphics.

    Sadly, there's not a whole lot of geeks at my school willing to sit down and play computer games, so I just played against the A.I, which is kind of depressing. (Mostly because it's loads better than me.. :shifty:) I'm in love with the concept of bringing the power cubes over to your central. Keeps you on your toes.

    I'd give it the :tup: but I'm gonna wait until I've played it against a REAL HUMAN BEING! And played in something other than the tutorial.. :shifty:

  9. Gorgeous as the game is, it can't be THAT far above what most people can run. Otherwise they'd just be completely fucking themselves over for casual consumers.

    Well, that's exactly what they did with Morrowind. Even at low settings it was slow on my computer. My computer wasn't high-end but it certainly wasn't any old crap.

  10. If you can get your creature to wiggle into the shape of an ampersand ("&"), it will grow a top hat, and the soundtrack will change into a medley of tap-dance tunes from "Gold Diggers Of 1929".


    EDIT: Never mind.. Just a joke. Good one.. :shifty: Would've been cool, though.

  11. Samuel Jackson apparently has this line in the film, which is bound to become a classic up there with lines like "Here's looking at you, kid."

    “You don’t know me well, Claire Miller. I spend every day dealing with people who do terrible things to one another. So I have very little faith in the human race as a whole. But I have faith in you.”

    This is quality writing, people!

  12. Link's Awakening is the only Zelda game I ever finished.

    I got very close to finishing Wind Waker, but lost interest during the tri-force hunt. I wish I hadn't sold it. Really, really want to play it now.

    Didn't get further than the fire temple, if I remember correctly, in Ocarina of Time. No, wait. I got further. Well, at any rate, that one I never finished.

    A Link To The Past was awesome, but I never finished it. Got to the last boss, I think.

    I love A Link To The Past, Link's Awakening and Wind Waker. For me Ocarina of Time seems kind of overrated. It's awesome, but it just falls short of being amazing for me. Must be because I can never get used to the N64's clumsy controller. Or maybe I'm just clumsy.

  13. I thought [Jordan Mechner] served merely as a consultant and didn't do anything for the Sands of Time.

    Yes, but he designed the original Prince of Persia games as well as the master-piece adventure game The Last Express.
