Sprint Details Shift To LTE

shihonage No firmware updates possible? (183 comments)

It's not just the network, it's the software. My Epic 4G is notoriously terrible at 4G-->3G fallback, just severing connections and not restoring them. So, question 1: Can they patch the firmware to switch these phones to LTE ? (let me guess, fuck no) question 2: oh nevermind, I'm depressed now

Climategate's Final Days

shihonage Cause - Consequence link is the problem (872 comments)

There isn't a question about climate change. There's a question about the cause ====> consequence link when it comes to HUMAN impact on the climate. Sun is a very powerful external source of energy, and Earth has been going through climate change cycles forever. So, do the scientists have any solid scientific data that links, without doubt, HUMANS as being the overwhelming reason for climate change? Because if not, then fuck them - I want my plastic shopping bags back.

shihonage Game playing != game coding (704 comments)

Wikileaks Releases Video of Journalist Killings

shihonage Re:Actually, I see RPG (1671 comments)

Do we know the exact altitude of that helicopter, and the skill of the potential RPG shooter ? I'm afraid we don't know squat, and the soldiers there appear to find RPGs dangerous enough to seek them out and destroy them.

Yes he looked like an RPG guy to me too, acted suspiciously, and could've taken down the chopper at any moment. This is not Call of Duty, you don't get to reload when your chopper blows up because of your "good faith in men".

How To Sell a Video Game Idea?

shihonage Ideas ? Where we're going, we don't need ideas. (351 comments)

Videogames are an interactive medium. A trailer is not a convincing means of portraying working gameplay mechanics. I'm sorry to say, but ideas are a dime a dozen, even if you can make a video out of them. Unless you can make a convincing video of a continuous chunk of mock-up gameplay, that proves without the shadow of a doubt that your "original" gameplay mechanics actually work, it's kind of a crapshoot.
