  1. I'm really going into the personal taste-area here and say that I don't like the PS[2] controller at all. For some reason it strains my hands, the edges in the side burrow into my flesh and it doesn't feel very good. Also, there's an overkill on similarly shaped and thus confusing buttons. What the fuck is up with FOUR shoulderpads? I think it only encourages developers to come up with overly complex control schemes. Anyway, the thing just doesn't rest comfortably in my hands and handling it is like a struggle for me.

    You may flame me now :fart:

  2. Wow, that's a good question! I'm doing my best now to think of something... I guess whenever I get fed up with Morrowind after hours of faithful roleplaying, I usually go out and kill everyone I encounter, including all the people I worked so hard for to please and be friends with. Even though I don't save those little frenzied sessions of course, I always do feel a bit bad about it, like I'm betraying them. Even though they will have 'forgotten' everything when I load up a savegame...

  3. You can have such fun on that site. And it's once more a testimony that there should be more wacky commercials in the west. For reasons unbeknownst to me, I find great hilarity in watching Sylvester Stallone eating and praising ham at a restaurant table.

  4. Hey that's interesting. I'll check out Edge next month.

    Furthermore I'd like to say that I think the Gamecube controller is one of the most intuitive I've ever had the pleasure to hold. Not only are all of the buttons shaped differently so that they are discernible by touch alone, the thing also just slips into my hands so comfortably... I think I'm in love.

  5. Ah joh, people sometimes just get caught up in a moment. It happens to all of us and there's nothing wrong with it. It would take a fool to go and accuse people of doing that. It's not fanboyism, it's just getting aroused by this or that and venting it. So let's just not take everyone's words so incredibly literally.

  6. Maybe this will persuade you to make the Right Choice:


    Now imagine half the table being occupied by a box that's large (and bulletproof) enough to register a planecrash and survive it!

    Just kidding here; just wanted to take this opportunity to show the picture ;)

  7. It's a safe assumption that people buy the Gamecube to play Nintendo games. 3rd Party titles have little influence on the machine. So it really depends on how you look at Nintendo, their consoles and games being very rich with a special feeling that has grown over the decades. It's an acquired taste. If this sort of thing isn't your schtick, you'll probably have more fun with the X-box, seeing as it sports more games that you'll likely see on the PC (which you know you like).

  8. Well the trailer became a stuttering slideshow for me so I really couldn't get into the atmosphere. I did notice the horrific flaw in the editing though. But those pics look magnificent, and I also taste how this could be a fantastic game; storming all those colossi, each one playing out as a different puzzle (or at least, that's what I understand it's going to be like).

  9. The intention of the scene is to fucking NOT end the game. It's an unfinished game now. We've been cheated out of our ending dammit. This is like the One Ring suddenly resurfacing from the lava of mount Doom; the Emperor climbing out of the shaft he was thrown in; Trinity all of a sudden getting back from the dead and giving us another 15-minute piece of stand-up comedy gold.
