    Strider Hiryu got a reaction from DeathscytheX in Destiny   
    Considering the fact that consoles will not be backward compatible in the next gen I'm pretty sure both companies won't stop supporting the current gen systems for quite awhile (especially considering the fact that the new Xbox is going to require a constant internet connection (or so has been reported). A lot of people don't like the idea of that (nor do I, with my crappy internet connection)). Plus as DX pointed out the original Xbox Live was shut down in 2010 due to lack of subscriptions.  Plus most people won't update to the new system right away so they'd lose money if they stopped supporting the old systems right away (I, for one, will not be upgrading right away. I just bought my current 360 two years ago and I'm still paying off my laptop, no money for a new system. Plus I usually wait a year to make sure there's no major hardware or software problems with the new system (remember the 360 debacles)).
     
    Back on the actual subject I've been awaiting this announcement since Bungie left MS for Activision (and turned over the keys to Halo, an idea I still don't agree with or like. Don't get me wrong Halo 4 is fun but I don't like the direction 343 is taking franchise). Bungie has a lot of great talent on their team so I can't wait to see what the final product looks like and if they can really support their ideas for this game (the server thing has me wondering since, as DX pointed out, Activision doesn't like to run its own servers).

    Whether there is a whole lot of truth in whats said in that article is question but it looks like Gearbox outsourced the majority of the game while they focused on their own title. Sad if you ask me, especially considering how long ago A:CM was announced to how long the turn-a-round on BL2 was. I wouldn't be surprised if Sega takes legal action against Gearbox if this all turns out to be true (I had no interest in this game but I thought you'd all find the above article interesting as you all seem to have been interested in the game).

    Strider Hiryu got a reaction from Sledgstone in Ghost in the Shell: Arise   
    It's a set of 4 movies/OVA's (not an actual series persay, http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2013-02-12/ghost-in-the-shell/arise-anime-details-outlined)
     
    I'm actually looking forward to it (about the only real thing I've been looking forward to in the anime world recently) since it's been dead on the GitS front since Solid State Society and a prequel will be nice considering everything about Motoko that we know comes from after she joined Section 9. Since it's Production I.G. I'm pretty sure it'll be good (unless they go the same route they did with Blood-C, which was disappointing when you compare it to the Blood movie and Blood+).

    I only found out about it being a Canadian show when I went to download it the other day on eztv. Saw the whole first season and was like "WTH it just started airing". So I went on over to wikipedia and found out the info. I just hope this doesn't end up like Sanctuary and getting cancelled after 4 seasons.
     
    I was beyond pissed when I heard Sanctuary was cancelled. The show had so much more potential to just up and end it like that (but that's a topic for another time).

    Just go download it Sledge, the whole first season is up on torrent sites. Like Sanctuary this is another Canadian show that SyFy picked up after the fact (I think this is why it got it's second season). I plan on dling it so as not to wait for each episode every week because the previews caught my interest.

    Strider Hiryu reacted to DeathscytheX in That gun debate thing   
    A gun ban is just a "big government" agenda. We can talk about assault rifles all day but if you go to the FBI's website and look at the numbers, more people are killed by knifes, hammers, and even hands and feet. These individual categories out number ALL rifles put into its own category.
    Another interesting note is that from 2008-2011 the number of homicides have gone down. The US ranks 28th in the world in gun violence per capita. What Piers Morgan won't tell you is that in the UK violent crime is 5 times higher per capita than in the US.
    Timothy McVeigh single handedly killed more Americans in one event and didn't use a single firearm. You can still buy fertilizer to this day.
    People are quick to act on emotion while throwing any kind of logic out of the window... That's why we have the patriot act, that's why the gov can tap your cell with no warrant, and that's why they are trying to restrict guns now. Any freedom we are willing to give up, Uncle Sam will be happy to take it away from you weather it's Democrat or Republican.

    Honestly I think this is probably the most retarded thing I've seen in years (console wise). Quite honestly I don't see the point, I have my Droid Bionic for Android based games and apps and my laptop for Steam so I really don't see the point to this. Plus I'm sure this thing will be released at a ridiculous asking price.

    Holy crap whats the range on those shotguns cause you were pulling some pretty far away kills with it? Nice videos btw
     
    So this explains why I haven't seen you on Halo in awhile, been playing the COD. Got a friend trying to talk me into buying this and watching those vids makes me miss my old COD days (not that much mind you, I never got into multiplayer for BO1 and MW2 turned me away from multiplayer to begin with).

    Strider Hiryu got a reaction from Sledgstone in UPS Driver Steals Christmas Gift Delivered By FedEx   
    More then likely because Gateway computers are pieces of crap (used to have a Gateway desktop, was nothing but a pain in my ass). I believe it used to be set up that way, if an order was more the $250 it required a signature no matter what (even if you didn't want to sign for it) or at least I know it used to be for UPS (one of my friends used to drive for them). FedEx I'm not sure but I remember back in the day I used to have to sign for all my packages that came through them (back when GameStop still used them to ship games).
     
    I know when I got my laptop last year I had to sign for (then again it was freaking expensive) but that's the only thing I've signed for in the past 3 years or so.

    Same exact place I told you to get Elfen Lied at all those months ago. About the cheapest I've seen it. Both the collections will run you around $10 more per collection ($20 both) at any other place online (not including shipping). I'd suggest also checking stores near you to see if you can get it cheaper there (like Best Buy, Suncoast, etc.). I have the original Boxset so it ran me more money (plus I bought it as it was released and got the Limited Edition boxset with the Kiba plushie and first OST).

    Well, we all thought the series finale sucked ass, so it looks like scifi is making up for it. 1 1/2 hour straight to dvd movie that takes place after the end of Stargate SG1. Looks like that other stargate movie that is being made will be a straight to dvd release also. I'm just glad they're not letting the show end on such a shit note anymore.

    Strider Hiryu got a reaction from Sledgstone in Dreamcast 2   
    Most likely no. I highly doubt Sega would stand a chance in today's console market since the bar has been raised pretty damn high for anyone willing to come in now. The 360 and PS3 would be hard to contend with graphics and hardware wise, they're beasts and considering how well the Dreamcast did I doubt they'd be able to make something up to those specs.
    Though the Wii is doing well we have to look at it from a different aspect then power and hardware. Considering the Wii is just a Gamecube slimmed down (graphics wise, I do realize there is different hardware on the system, I just consider it a slimmed down GC) it doesn't hold well in that market. Wii's success has to do with it's family appeal and innovative controller (as much as I hate the Wii-mote I admit it's pretty damn innovative). This is the main reason it's outsold both the 360 and PS3.
    Should Sega one day decide to come back onto the console market it's either going to have to build a powerhouse machine to contend with the PS3 and 360 or it's going to have to go the same way as Nintendo did and make a console that's more family oriented. I don't really see Sega being able to pull this off from both a designer mindset nor do I see it from a consumer mindset. They'd have to make some pretty big changes to come back into the console market and I just don't really see it being possible for Sega.

    Strider Hiryu got a reaction from Sledgstone in What makes Gundam Wing so popular?   
    Ah thanks for the info on Shenlong and Deathscythe. Been years since I saw it so I couldn't remember when they were destroyed and why (I have a bad memory).
    True, give an awesome pilot an awesome suit and they'll be a powerhouse (as seen with Char and a few other pilots in the UC series as well as AC series). It's just that the GW Gundams are actually more powerful then you believe them to be as compared to other timeline series (UC series and GX). Only real reason I know this is not by having seen those series but because I actually read and understand the technical specs that are out on the net for them (MAHQ is my bible for mech tech specs). I'm somewhat of a nerd for specs. I could care less what a suit looks like, I want to know what it's truly capable of and that can only be seen thru the technical specs. This is why the GW Gundams are considered so powerful. They're capable of things that nothing could realistically be capable of even a 25 meter humanoid weapon.
    UC Gundam isn't for everyone thats why I can see you not getting into it. Sadly this is what I don't like about the new generation of Gundam fans. They only watch it for the flashy Gundams, pretty boy/girl pilots, and fanservice (as seen in SEED/SEED Destiny). None of them are in it for the story or awesome character development that was seen in the original Gundam and subsequent UC series (Tomino is the man, all I have to say about that).
    Meh, I'm done now. Enough Gundam spouting out of me. Need to turn this back on track to GW and why it's so popular.
