  1. According to the Ratchet and Clank guys, Galaxy is based upon their game and Miyamoto has been copying them for a while. Seriously, look it up.

    Here's a rather biased interview, for example. And a Joystiq article to boot.

    Then Ratchet and Clank stole from Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island because one of the bosses in that game you had to fight on the moon. Its all a spherical cycle.

  2. That sucks, why does he even bother to play this game then, or any game for that matter? If the main goal is to have fun. How can someone like that have fun?...

    Sadly there are douches in the world who have been heavily spoiled during childhood. They could all use some manual labor.

  3. From what I have played of it, the game play is better than Mario 64. Its whether you think the nostalgia of Mario 64 being the first 3D Mario outweighs this one.

    And I haven't picked it up yet, hopefully Walmart, Kmart (unlikely), or the game stores around here have it. How likely is it to be sold out?

  4. I've always been under the impression that if you work at a place like Microsoft, the pressure can be really fucking on. Programmers have release dates and deadlines. While it isn't an every week thing, projects can be large enough where hitting the deadline can be scary with 80 hour work weeks.

    The only justifiable reason I see you can defend writers getting special royalties is that writing is a hit or miss thing where you either make crap, or copious amounts of cash off a show. Some (not you Nicholas) have defended music and writing deserving of special compensation due to their "artistic" nature. Well, I personally see programming and all engineering as creative acts, and the reason I'm a programmer is because I believe it is an art form. From that standpoint, the artistic nature of writing doesn't make it more worthy of royalties than other jobs without reasons, cause what may seem mundane to you, might be a creative act to me.

    Unless you program Halo 3, or maybe World of Warcraft, then you would have no where near the impact that these writers will have. How many Americans watch televsion. 200 million? How many use your software? 1, maybe 2? Not trying to be an ass, but you get the point.

  5. Played today at Gamespot for an hour (no one else was in the store, so don't call me a hog). It is definitely fun. I couldn't put it down but I had to go to see Robert Morgan read excepts from his new book.

    Its confusing at first. You have to stop to talk to all the little creatures so you can figure out whats going on.

  6. YES to these two:

    Fallout 1 and Fallout 2 - probably the best PC RPGs the PC has ever known, although japanophiles and mmorpg players will whine differently. The storyline is excellent (best of any post-nuclear earth stories), the gameplay is great, the humor is great, sound and graphics ahead of its time, cutscene and movie CG is excellent, and the games had substance. Unlike every other RPG you can win the game without ever wielding a weapon by talking with or sleeping with everyone, or you can make your character mentally retarded and go around shooting everything you see, including children. The "matureness" of these games far surpasses grand theft auto. What you do in one town can affect the others. You can get both for under $15, and its well worth it. Think Diablo but with guns and turn-based combat and a whole lot of dialouge.

    Also, two of the best intro movies to any game ever in the history of games.

    Fallout 1 -

    Fallout 2 -

    Fallout 3 is under development by Bethesda and is scheduled to release in Fall 2008.

  7. One of the things I've wanted to do once I become a multi-millionaire was start up a cable tv network with these sorts of cartoons showing in the morning every day during the week and after midnight on Fri/Sat/Sun. Nothing like a midnight showing of Tiny Toon Adventures.

    So yeah, I'm taking donations if anyone agrees with me. Or maybe if you know Bill Gates or something and he could fork over a couple hundred million or so.

  8. See I really dont understand how people think its 3 minutes total. I mean, when I first read it, that didnt even come in to thought. All I thought was "3 minutes per match, cool". Its definitely not 3 MINUTES TOTAL FOREVER OH NOES!!!... seriously.. I really dont get how people would think its 3 minutes total.

    In other news, this game looks like its going to be very amazing.

    Simple, people fail to read, like with the last online update. You'd think that America's schools today would teach reading comprehension, but I guess as time passes those skills are left out of the curriculum.

  9. Well even a SD card can expand this time if is a memory problem...

    I hope they will not constrict us to press rec every 3 minutes in a match.

    I don't think they mean for you to record an entire match, just a bit to showcase moves or a cool KO or a comeback or something.

  10. I'm sure all the characters will get spoiled to you anyway. How many of you are going to quit looking at the thread and any smash related news a month before release, go to the store, pick up your copy, turn off your computer, put in the game, and play all the way though to unlock every character and then be surprised about it.

  11. So Mario Galaxy got a 38/40 from Famitsu.

    In comparison, Mario 64 got 39/40, Sunshine 37/40, New Super Mario Bros. 36/40.

    Famitsu only gives one 40/40 per console. There are only 6 perfect scores, which includes any console game ever made.

    The six: The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (N64), Soulcalibur 1 (Dreamcast), Vagrant Story (Playstation), The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker (Gamecube), Nintendogs (DS), Final Fantasy XII (Playstation 2).

    There are 19 39/40 scores, most recently being Phantom Hourglass, Okami, Kingdom Hearts 2, and including A Link to the Past, Mario 64, Tekken 3, Virtua Fighter 2, Resident Evil 1, and Metal Gear Solid 3.

    This leads me to believe that Wii Fit will get the 40, since it seems to be a huge fascination in japan.

  12. Being a raving rabid monkey island fan, it was ok. Whoever was playing the keyboard butchered some of the parts.

    We really need more Lechuck remixes on here. Lechuck's theme is probably one of the greatest in any video game ever.

  13. The reason you don't see them anymore is because you can't make any money off of them. Not only that but with the rise of 3D graphics in consoles and computers most kids would rather stay at home and play their halo's and whatnot. $15,000 gets you what, 11 arcade games? Plus you figure in rent and electricity, and, well, you are doomed, unless you are a millionaire opening up arcades for fun.

    Pretty much the only way to balance it out so you aren't taking losses every month is to add in about 10 pool tables and offer alcoholic beverages or a bar.

  14. from what i'm hearing, people having the most problems are those who upgrade from XP to vista.

    i bought a laptop with it pre-loaded and i beefed up the system just because i knew it was resource intense and because laptops can't really be upgraded (get my money's worth).

    I have seen DJP's issue with files that don't copy and network file sharing doesn't seem to exist. but other than that it's done everything i need it to do. I had a few issues with running Java Netbeans but i think it was a bad program install because i re-installed it and it worked.

    the real kick is, what have people who bought Vista Ultimate really gained by going ultimate? 80 something fonts! that's microsoft's big reward for that extra $100 or so you spent on Ultimate, congrats!

    People pay for Windows? :P

    Yeah, I have Ultimate but am not seeing a difference. They have yet to release any other Windows Ultimate features that I keep seeing they will do in my Windows Ultimate update box since I installed it 6 months ago. I don't use the dreamscenes mainly because all the ones out there suck.
