Have they ever thought about selling their unusable notes out for novelty purposes? I think it would spice up a good game of monopoly :)

Lueseiseki First Space Docking Test (106 comments)

Well that's kind of strange. I've seen headlines describing the advent of sex in space before but this is two guys doing it to each other? Not that there's anything wrong with that I mean...

Today's Children Are Officially Potty Mouths

Lueseiseki Re:Adults too. (449 comments)

It's called "positive punishment", a very standard and accepted phrase in the studies of psychology and behaviorism. Does a kid that was spanked always become aggressive against his/her environment?

Spore-Inspired Action RPG Darkspore Announced

Lueseiseki Re:You had me at EA... (86 comments)

Hey calm down, if you pay attention to what EA's been doing lately, they're not as restrictive and all that as they were pegged out to be. An example is their Bad Company 2 game, which launched with SecuROM that they intended to (and did) remove two weeks after the game released. Even further than that, they're even coming out with a fully fledged expansion to that game in Vietnam. No pay for extra maps here, this is actualyl original content that wasn't stripped from the game. If you wanna bitch at a company so bad do it to Activision.

4 Cores? 6 Cores? Do You Care?

Lueseiseki Re:They are just late to the party (661 comments)

When you kinda grasp how they do it, it's not so hard.

If I'm looking at an ATI card with the number given as 5850, I know that it's part of the current generation ( 5### ) and is a pretty high end card card ( #850 ).

If I see 4350, I'll know it's from the previous generation of cards ( 4### ) and it is an entry level or HTPC card.

It's kinda hard to really know whether an ATI's 4650 is greater than a nvidea 9800GT though, but I think the real difficulty comes from trying to know how much a generation of cards improves from its last generation. (4350 vs 5350 for example)

South Korea Announces Daily MMO Blackouts For Youths

Lueseiseki Interesting, but (148 comments)

How would they go about enforcing this? (article slashdotted) Are they going to block a family's internet connection because their one child will be playing during a different time? What if you have multiple children even?

From the summary, it looks like they're really trying to shape this up and make it into a good game. FWIW, The Thing was was one my classic favorites for the PS2. :) A very scary game indeed.

Easter Eggs Give Clues to Next-Gen iPhone

Lueseiseki Lueseiseki writes  |  more than 5 years ago

Lueseiseki (1189513) writes "Very little is known about Apple's next iPhone, but screens and files hidden in the handset's latest beta software are providing some major clues. iPhone 3.0 beta testers are stumbling upon menus, system preferences and text strings that Apple tried to keep secret — presumably because they give away features that will appear in the next upgrade to the iPhone hardware, which will probably be released this summer. Highlights include a video recorder, an auto-focus camera and a digital compass. Beta-testing sleuths have also found tantalizing suggestions about the operating system, including an unannounced tethering capability, voice control and a "find my iPhone" feature."
