Games Fail To Portray Gender and Ethnic Diversity

Koiu Lpoi Re:Random question (590 comments)

Except there have been surveys and studies that show that Japanese people actually relate to those images, seeing them as themselves and distinctly non-caucasian, so I think you're reading too much into it. They may be racist, but not in this way.

Games Fail To Portray Gender and Ethnic Diversity

Koiu Lpoi Re:Thanks for proofing you are wrong (590 comments)

Lol, way to fly off the handle for nothing (and misspell "proving"). He was pointing out that the only black character was a thug gangster - in other words, hardly representative of actual diversity as it is in and of itself a giant stereotype.

Publishers Want a Slice of Used Game Market

Koiu Lpoi Re:Oh com'on! (664 comments)

What if I told you that I thought that Deus Ex 2 was better than one, Jedi Knight was a crappy game, and Twilight Princess was better than Ocarina of Time? Nostalgia does a lot to make crappy games (Jedi Knight? Seriously?) look wonderful.

Publishers Want a Slice of Used Game Market

Koiu Lpoi Re:What's Next? (664 comments)

For some reason or another, everything is different when it becomes electronic. Nobody knows why this is, but we, for some reason, need to remake all our laws and regulations, just because this time it's digital.

Publishers Want a Slice of Used Game Market

Koiu Lpoi Re:devil's advocate (664 comments)

So what? Many modern games work perfectly without a CD. In fact, on some older games, it was a feature that you could install it on multiple computers. "Oh no we're not making money" is not an excuse. Besides, do you know what you get back on a used game sale these days? Maybe 10-20%? Totally worth it man!

SOE Pulls the Plug On The Matrix Online

Koiu Lpoi Re:Sounds normal to me (111 comments)

The second one was notable for its fight scenes and soundtrack. Worth a viewing for at least that.

Google Adds Scripting Capabilities To Google Docs

Koiu Lpoi Takes me back... (58 comments)

I seem to remember that programmability was the exact reason so many security experts despised the MS Office Suite. How long until the first Google Docs based malware installation?

Windows 7 Hard Drive and SSD Performance Analyzed

Koiu Lpoi Re:Vista is not slow! (248 comments)

Only power users that consider Vista to be slow are the ones who use XP cause they've never used Vista.

Or those of us who use Vista everyday. But not ignoring us would destroy your point.

Windows 7 Hard Drive and SSD Performance Analyzed

Koiu Lpoi Re:Windows XP does not support SSDs like this.. (248 comments)

Is that so? Anybody got a link to a guide of some kind? I've got a netbook running on an SSD, and I (and I'm sure many others) would love to know how what tweaks to apply.

Understanding Addiction-Based Game Design

Koiu Lpoi Re:D&D for the unimaginative (308 comments)

originally

Your whole post is a huge slam at D&D 4th, and I have one thing to say: a massive portion of the D&D population has stayed with 3.5 (or earlier!), and have no intention of moving on, for the exact reasons you mentioned. "If I wanted to play WoW, I'd play WoW. I want to play D&D."

Square Enix Shuts Down Fan-Made Chrono Trigger Sequel

Koiu Lpoi Re:They're trying to prevent people from pirating (455 comments)

So, question, if anyone knows the answer: I own a working cart of Chrono Trigger for the Super Famicom. Am I therefore "allowed" to download an image of the same game from the internet and use these rom patches to theoretically play this? Or is obtaining a copy from somebody else of what I already own illegal?

Koiu Lpoi Re:Nonsequitor in the summary (455 comments)

Any idea how much an original Chrono Trigger fetches?

700 yen. The cart works fine, too.
