it's basically confirmed that Phantom Pain is a Metal Gear game

the developer's CEO is named Joakim, which is an anagram for Kojima
Colonel Volgin appears in the trailer, he's from MGS3
Big Boss has the same scar in the trailer as he does in the Zeroes game
David Hayter has basically Tweeted that he's in the game

I really enjoyed the Dreamcast version. In that version, it was like an RPG version of Asteroids. But if I recall, the PC version is more about auto attacks.

naw it's #7 at 23 per 100,000 people. The US is around 10 per 100,000 people.

Apparently Switzerland had a higher suicide rate in the 1970s for some reason.

i feel the same way. I don't know why they can't un-automate things for higher difficulty settings or something.

I find Heinlein's works to be somewhat disturbing in premise... as a sci-fi author he is supposed to have a crazy imagination.. but there are times where I wonder about the author's mind..

There's that one book where the whole premise is black people take over the world and white people are eaten by them, I think. And some other book with incest being fine.

In Starship Troopers, I believe one of the teachers suggests that if just one citizen of a country's population is taken hostage by some other country, it's perfectly fine to have a war which kills off millions of people on both sides, just to save that one hostage. It's totally worth it, in the teacher's mind. Ummm... yeah I dunno.
It's a weird way of seeing things, for one. If a homeless person was taken off the streets of America and put in North Korean prison... trust me, no one in America is going to give a crap. Millions will not die and no one will care. But I guess Heinlein, who seemed to be talking through that teacher, thinks it's worth it? EHhh....

News Comments > South Korea's Gaming Curfew
14. Re: South Korea's Gaming Curfew Nov 23, 2011, 22:07 Charlie_Six
 
Personally I think that if the government is subsidizing young people's education, and I assume it is, then it's not far fetched to have it regulate aspects of the young person's life. Similarly, if you raise a child and invest hundreds of thousands of dollars into that child, you expect some control and influence in return, don't you?

In the US, many kids squander generous government provided services by becoming druggies, criminals etc. It's fine if you're a druggie... but not if you're using public funds. At that point you're using other people's money, money given to you to assist you in life, in order to just do something selfish.

So if S. Korea was a free market Rapture-like environment where everyone is fending for themselves, then this is overstepping. Otherwise, if S. Korea passes a law with the consent of the majority of the public, then I say whatever. Go ahead.

News Comments > More on Mass Effect 3 Multiplayer
6. Re: More on Mass Effect 3 Multiplayer Oct 10, 2011, 22:53 Charlie_Six
 
I'm really glad Bioware took the risk and put in some co-op. Mass Effect could work beautifully with it too. Already companion NPCs interject with various bits of dialogue during interaction scenes. Multiplayer co-op could simply have the companions being controlled by your friends, and the dialogue they interject with is chosen by your friends too, from a dialogue wheel. In this way, the companions seem more "alive" because their dialogue is being actively chosen by a real living person. Plus this increases replay value since you might want to replay the mission and have your friends choose different dialogue wheel options.

Co-op would be complicated to implement if all the players had freedom of movement/exploration during non-mission sequences though. Like exploring the Citadel or something like that. Most people would not want to just tag along behind the Shepherd player in these situations. Anyone who's played Neverwinter Nights 1 or 2 or Baldur's Gate co-op knows that this can be sort of fun, but also a bit weird.

But, if Bioware just makes side co-op missions where Shepherd and his friends are deploying to some battle area... then I don't see where any big problems could come from. If I'm not mistaken, Bioware is already doing this with The Old Republic.

Another idea is to branch this co-op MP idea into a competitive mode, where two sides of players (3 one each side) would have a scenario where all 6 players are choosing dialogue options on their individual wheels. It would be a semi-big feat for the writer to do, but if pulled off, would be really cool IMO.

Personally I really hope story-driven multiplayer gaming becomes the next big thing. I'm tired of multiplayer gaming being all about nonstop killing. I feel like MP gaming hasn't really evolved in at least a decade, if not longer.

Paypal should reinstate their payment features for Wikileaks. They still do business with Guardian, Der Spiegel, the New York Times and so forth. It's not consistent to cut off Wikileaks' payments and not cut off the newspapers that worked Wikileaks too
