You guys all realize IST was looking for 3D games to test the new features of ePSXe, right?

*whew* mys secret cloning project that produced both SGP and Tharthan is still a secret...
That was close!

Do I dare ask what the original source material for the clones was?

But top 100 lists... always struck me as a silly idea in general.  I mean, you're just comparing games of totally different genres, which appeal to totally different people.  Can you really say that 'The Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time is better than Super Mario Galaxy and Call of Duty 4 because this and that reason'?

Much better to list the top games of a certain genre or maybe theme.  Top 100 platformers might be a bit more meaningful than top 100 games, and the same goes for top 100 FPS games, top 100 fighting games, top 100 shoot em ups, etc.

Exactly. Mixed genre lists essentially rate genres against each other. That doesn't make any sense and is just completely arbitrary.

Ape Escape

I'd link to the old insomniac essay about how bad it is to rate games of mixed genres into a single list, but I think all the content of that site is behind a paywall nowadays.  :crazy:

It's not the seats, it's the angle towards the screen. If you are in the front you need to look up a bit (it gets straining for 2 hours) and if you are on the outer edges you are viewing somewhat diagonaly towards the screen. At home the center seat is always yours.

Even screen size is relative to your field of vision and thus depends on the distance. Your TV might not be several meters across, but you're only a few steps away from it. It's not hard to even oversize a telly. In the cinema half the seats are also pretty crappy. especially the outer edges and the first few rows.

Java's all but dead...

According to...? Java just got back the leading position in the TIOBE index . Which means its popularity is growing. When it's the most widely used already.

My point is that I have doubts that the theatres are going to be able to survive off of the money of dates and groups of friends going out to them when one of those friends might just invite their friends to their house where they have a huge telly.

So? When their time comes, cinemas will go out of business. But I doubt it'll be anytime soon.

What has changed is that people pool into huge blockbuster movies and not so much smaller productions. Because the big movie events are just that - events, to be savored with friends. While smaller stuff is more readyly bought on DVD and watched on a boring evening with nothing else to do. But again, that's a change in movie going habits but not per se a bad thing.

Skies of Arcadia.

I'd play Shenmue 1 and 2 once if you are interested in gaming history up to today, because the influence those games had, however hard they flopped, is tremenduous.

For multiplayer fun, Powerstone.

This thread makes me sad on so many levels.

I absolutely would be all for "levels" when it came to the power of a console setup, what I dont want is a Platinum RAM, and bronze level everything else, If im going to have to customize a console I want it all on one level, preferably in one expansion pak/kit, I shouldn't have to hunt down multiple parts to make my console games work.

Who says that this will be the case? Still far too little info to say anything about what this will actually mean IMO. There is a large span of options of what this could be, and little of them are new. It could be small add-ons (Sega 32X, Sega CD, N64 RAM expansion,...), it could be yearly refreshes of the hardware (GBC, NDSi, new 3DS, Apple devices) or it could just be a unified software platform to use with random PC hardware. It's impossible to tell what it'll be, but the differences between those options are enormous. So, let's hold back with the judgements for now and wait and see.

All I'm definitely seeing that affects me for now is that a ton of more games will have PC ports instead of being console exclusive, FUCK YEAH.  :beer:

They could have taken ANY other Rare character for the presentation. It's hard to believe how little they understand the gaming fanbase if they think Conker was the appropiate pick to turn into a kiddified Looney Toons character.

Right, you totally didn't just say that a free college education will lead to a country of useless slobs who can't do real work.  ::)

Oh right, you didn't use those words so that's totally not what you said because reasons. Not going to get dragged into a quote war, I'll let everyone interpret your statements by themselves.

Most conservative worries boil down to envy. Someone else is getting something for free or easier than they did "WE NEED TO STOP THIS OR OUR SOCIETY CRUMBLES".


Countries with multiple heads of states, such as UK, Germany or Switzerland, seems to do overall better than countries with a single head of state such as the US or France.

If you are refering to the president in Germany and the queen in the UK, those second heads of state really only have ceremonial functions. Politically they mean practically nothing.

XCOM2 was as good as expected. Well at least gameplay wise. In technical terms the game's a disaster. If you liked the first, get the second, once they put out three or four patches...

Also done with Mordheim. I put up a review on steam:
I didn't beat it, but I've got my fill.

Next up I definitely need to find something not turn-based...
