The Dark Forest / Wii, 360, or PS3?
« on: June 22, 2007, 08:01:44 PM »
I have an Xbox 360, considering it's the only console with exclusive games that are actually great. The Wii is pretty much the weakest console up there. It has outdated graphics, horrid controls (trust me on this, I've tried the remote), a weak library consisting mostly of Gamecube/PS2 ports and sequels, and no online play as of now. The Wii already showed it's maximum abilities at launch. We all know the fullest use of it's remote, which is the selling point of the Wii. We all know the maximum strength of it's graphics. The Xbox 360 and PS3 can still move on and evolve. The graphics processors can still show more of their abilities later on. There can be more put onto Xbox Live, including new software and communications. Xbox 360 and PC gamers can now play against each other on select online games. The disc space on Blu-Ray can be put to more use on the PS3.

Snape Kills Himself and Voldemort to Let Harry Potter Live

There, I saved you $34.99, your time wasted standing out at Barnes & Noble at 2 AM or waiting for your delivery from Amazon.com, and about hundreds of pages of reading.

So, no we have 8 planets and 3 newly discovered planets being debated on.  What's your take on this?

The Dark Forest / Mangas suck
« on: August 22, 2006, 05:21:15 PM »
I was just looking up mangas in Wikipedia to know the difference between them and comic books, and I found something interesting. Turns out America wants to use them to renew interest in reading to U.S. children. The guy who thought of this idea said that kids in the U.S. carry around MP3 players and Game Boys while kids in Japan carry around 3,000 page long mangas. If mangas can change that, why couldn't comic books? They're basically the same thing, only mangas have simpler plots and shorter dialogue. I looked at these mangas at Barnes & Noble and there's somethings that are totally wrong:

1. The text is backwards. Isn't English read from left to right? Why is manga read right to left? Imagine being a kid whose first books are mangas. You open up a copy of "The Great Gatsby" in class and open it from the back. Mangas are gonna decrease the literacy rate.

2. There's more pictures than words. The maximum of "talking bubbles" in a panel is 2. I also saw Batman comics at the bookstore and found two paragraphs in one bubble! Also, there were four bubbles in one panel! Beat that, manga.

3. Demographics. How many cool kids do you see carry around a manga? None, they all carry iPods and cell phones. The few pale, fat kids at my school, however, do.



Looks like mangas are gonna destroy the reading interest in America. I have a suggestion for you booksellers. Why not just advertise your book to renew interest in reading? Compare the numbers of laptop commercials to book commercials. Now you'll see why books are selling poorly to children.

Did I mention that computers are renewing interest in reading? I mean, you gotta know how to read to IM someone, read websites, and type in blogs. Maybe we need a renewal of interest in spelling and grammar?

I don't know why everyone disagrees with me on FF being a girly/gay game series.

The Dark Forest / At least this...

I don't get the product, and I hated that commercial!  Since it doesn't cure blemishes or headaches, what does it do?  Make you look stupid?

Brian, don't you think you're overreacting?  It's just an IM prank, for crying out loud.  Totally doesn't deserve its own thread.
