Sadly no.

However I was wondering: do you know anything about Chinese people?

It's a little waterpack that sits on the back of the Gamecube. But don't tell anyone, because this revolutionary little idea is bound to be stolen the moment it gets out!

Re: Parasite Eve: Rebirth to PS2 and GCN?

Uh, did anyone actually read the linked story? It's supposed to be an entirely new game. Not that I particularly care either way -- PE was a pretty wretched game. But who knows how it could turn...

Man, I hope you're not serious. While this new law in Greece is more than absurd (I'm still even wondering if this story might be fake....), suggesting that private corporations should have the...

'Culture' itself is an abstract notion; to say that violence in media 'reflects' culture separates 'culture' as its own reified domain. I would be more inclined to say that media IS culture, or at...

I think framing the issue in term of whether this 6 year old is 'mature' enough to play a game like Halo is a tad misleading. How does one tell if a kid is 'ready' enough to handle exposure to such...

Wait a minute....aren't Halo & the Xbox supposed to be for the 'mature' gamer? According to conventional gaming scene "wisdom" shouldn't this kid only be interested in Nintendo games? :p

Re: Re: Re: Eternal Arcadia Gamecube

Oh it's totally a cynical crack. I have no idea what they're really up to with this Skies of Arcadia port. But I do have my suspicions. The 'Gamecube-is-only-played-by-little-kids' nonsense has...

Unhappy Re: Eternal Arcadia Gamecube

Don't ya get it? "Remixed" is just a euphemistic way of stating that they're making Skies of Arcadia into a kids' game. Don't be fooled -- what we're really getting is "Skies of Arcadia: Mystic...

I'm a bit fuzzy on this. Sure, Pong can be seen having a story like you have suggested -- but, why frame it that way? What would you say is the value in describing the actions that a player...
