  1. Very nice. I keep thinking of doing this (I'm with America First as well) but didn't think they'd pass something this awesome.
  2. After the last couple years of games, I'm becoming convinced that Nintendo needs fresh people to come up with game ideas. This Zelda kinda feels like "We need to make more use of the game engine we made for PH." The new Punchout looks like fun, but that's it. I'm still dumbfounded at the idea and presentation of that new rock climbing game as well.
  3. Bump. So who watched the new episode? I thought it was pretty funny, but that's because I'm not Christian, and my family is Mormon and I always hate how they enjoy Disney so much, so it kind of was a personal funny for me. It's definitely a highlight to hear Mickey Mouse say "Christians are fucking retarded!".
  4. 1. Drive home from work 2. Re-build Puzzle game engine 3. Finish new online portfolio 4. Finish Code Design doc for new platformer engine 5. Find a new job before the layoffs come in May.
  5. Under the "Another Side Story" heading it says 一スペースパイレーツの視点でたどるメトロイドプライムヒストリー According to my inexperienced translation ability, I see that as "One Space Pirate's viewpoint of the Metroid Prime history."

    Hybrid Heaven

    Hybrid Heaven was awesome. I remember playing that and Winback on the N64 a lot with friends in Junior High / Highschool.
  7. This is why I like the Zelda series. They can make it a dramatic game without being overly Hollywood cheesy drama like this video. I mean sure Zelda has cheesy moments but not like this.
  8. Ah, I didn't get it until I read the wiki article on it. [spoilerS]After battling, Link drives the Master Sword into Ganondorf. Ganondorf stands, impaled, believing the Triforce of Power will save him. However, the image of the Triforce fades from his hand, leaving him to die. Because Zant's life had been tied to Ganondorf, Zant dies as well.[/spoilerS]
  9. Yeah, that's how I interpreted 0:00 to 0:50 in this clip. http://jp.youtube.com/watch?v=EmxxIZapJXc That is unless my interpretation was way off.
  10. I also don't know what to think about this site, but this analogy works because [spoilerS}In Twilight Princess Zant killed off Ganon and the Triforce of Power finally faded from his hand,{/SPOILER} Anyway, I'm not the most fluent japanese translator, but here's what I came up with Page Description 謎の時計がマーベラスエンターテイメント公式サイトに登場! 新しいゲームが、新たな時を刻む The mysterious clock by Marvelous Entertainment official site's introduction. A new game, for a new era(?). Page Title 乞うご期待 Request anticipation(?) * 乞う 【こう】 (v5u-s,vt) to ask; to request; to invite; ED * 期待 【きたい】 (n,vs) expectation; anticipation; hope; (P); EP Honestly though, I'm leaning towards this not being a new Zelda. It seems Miyamoto usually likes to be in the presence of fans when a new game is revealed to gauge their excitement level/watch grown men cry and piss their pants.
  11. "Simply plug the monitor into the VGA or DVI port on your graphics card and put on the passive polarized 3D glasses and your game will be in your face." Well it seems cool, but if I read it right you have to wear some sort of 3d glasses? It's interesting but probably won't catch on if need to wear glasses. I probably won't be buying this.
  12. Yeah, I vaguely remember that game too. Maybe I should download it to refresh my memory though... I don't recall it having good music. Here's my list: Zelda 64 Super Metroid Zelda Twilight Princess Final Fantasy 6
  13. I think it also depends (in the case of DVD) on the disc. I bought a 42" Samsung and it looked great for just about everything, but when I put in my old Amadeus DVD in, it looked terrible, and I honestly still don't really know why, but it's got a lot of dull browns and dark scenes, so maybe that's got a lot to do with it, but I bought the new 2-disc director's cut and it looks a lot better, but still worse than other titles in my DVD library. Although, I do definitely notice the difference between DVD and a movie on an HD channel or an HD movie On Demand, although I don't have a Blu-Ray player so I don't know if there's a large difference between Blu-Ray and (what I'm guessing is) a compressed HD movie from Comcast. Anyone have anything to comment on that? I will say though, I was resistant to HD in the beginning, but ever since I switched over, everything on an SDTV looks a little fuzzy in comparison.
  14. Good. That's what I was afraid of, actually. I might actually take a look at it now.
  15. I've been doing Flash for awhile now, and it isn't half as complicated as that sounds. I'm guessing from the Google results that XNA Game Studio is what you use to make Xbox Live Community games? How in-depth is it? Is it anything like RPG Maker (or that kind of game development program?)
  16. hoshit I remember making that image now. That was when I first started here.
  17. I agree with you on this one. It was a great episode, and I loved how they imitated the Ocean's movies' style.
  18. Naw man, don't worry about it. I didn't even know that they changed it like that. I guess I can understand why they did that though.
  19. That's weird. When my wife tried using her hotmail address it told her that wasn't allowed and it had to be a japanese address. It was a pain to get the account activated because her Mom knows nothing about computers and had to get her son to help. We didn't try a gmail account though so maybe that's the key...
  20. As far as I know, you also need a japanese email address to complete the registration as well. In order for my wife, a native japanese, to sign up, she had to use her Mom's cell phone email address, as we both live in the US.
  21. Shit I think I remember that game. Is that the one that had a selection at the beginning of the game for the swearing or no swearing version? I actually don't remember the gameplay. I just remember there was a lot of swearing. (I was young)
  22. Mine probably is Thundercade for the NES. That game was so great, and even greater with the Game Genie.
  23. Man, I laughed hard at this episode. I hated Cloverfield and it's vomit-inducing camera and dumb hamster looking monster. Looking forward to next week now.
