Which Game Series Would You Reboot?

Apocalypse111 Re:Not all series need reboots (1120 comments)

Mega Man has the same problem... you'd think after the 3rd or 4th game he'd figure out that Wily will keep getting out of prison and cranking out more robot masters to beat, so why start from scratch each time? Either keep the weapons from the previous games or jam a Crash Bomb up his ass and be done with it.

Apocalypse111 (597674) writes "A pair of high-school students are suing the California based anti-cheating service Turnitin (or rather, Turnitin's parent company, iParadigms LLC), claiming copyright violations. According to the lawsuit, each of the students obtained a copyright registration for papers they submitted to Turnitin. The lawsuit seeks $150,000 for each of six papers written by the students. At least one paper was submitted to Turnitin with instructions that it not be archived, but it was archived regardless, the lawsuit claims. "You can't take a person's work and run it through a computer and make an honest person out of them," said Kevin Wade, father of one of the plaintiffs. "My son's major objection is that he does not cheat, and this assumes he does.""

Apocalypse111 (597674) writes "Chinese scientists have successfully bred partially green fluorescent pigs which they hope will boost stem cell research. A research team at the Northeast Agricultural University in Harbin managed to breed three transgenic pigs by injecting fluorescent green protein into embryonic pigs, Xinhua quoted Professor Liu Zhonghua as saying. "The mouth, trotters and tongue of the pigs are green under ultraviolet light," said Liu.

Finally, one step closer to realizing my dream of green eggs and ham!"

Apocalypse111 (597674) writes "A quick look around the 'net at discussions about Microsoft's upcoming Zune music player are yielding, probably predictably, a number of negative comments. One of the more popular comparisons floating around is a comparison to an 8-track player. This comparison has become so popular that a Google search for the Wikipedia article on the Zune yields first the actual Zune article, and second the article on 8-track cartridges. Could this be the result of a subtle marketing campaign, or perhaps the efforts of a dedicated individual on a Google-bombing campaign? Given Microsoft's track record with DRM, security, reliability, and practically everything else, is this comparison far from the mark?"

Apocalypse111 (597674) writes "According to CNN.com, air samples taken over North Korea have not yet found any radiation from the event on Monday that NK claims was a nuclear test. This is not definitive proof that the event was non-nuclear, as it may either have been so small and deep that it did not let any radioactive debris escape, or perhaps the North Koreans sealed the site. The article even mentions the possibility that it was conventional explosives. Personally, my money is on the theory that a few million North Koreans got together and yelled, "BOOM!"."

According to the PR release, "Sony always strives to deliver the highest level of satisfaction to its customers and all consumers. We believe that this program is in the best interest of both our customers and all consumers.""



Comment Here if you are Friend-ing me!

Apocalypse111 Apocalypse111 writes  |  more than 8 years ago I just now looked at my "fans" list and noticed that a few people like me! I must admit to being pleased, yet somewhat dumbfounded by this development. I was also struck by the question, "Why did these people bother to 'friend' me?". Was it something I said? Maybe my sig (it seems pretty popular)? Maybe you were just testing out the system and I was the lucky scapegoat? Well, I figure its worth asking here, if you're adding me to a friends list, why exactly?
