24. Re: Incitement to Genocide Jan 23, 2004, 18:29 Raven
 
From Dictionary.com:

gen·o·cide ( P ) Pronunciation Key (jn-sd)
n.
The systematic and planned extermination of an entire national, racial, political, or ethnic group.

Mr. Dupuy things that GTA leads people to plan the extermination of his entire ethnic group. I can honestly say that I never even thought about it until he mentioned it.

I guess that means that Mr. Dupuy is really the one inciting genocide.

"Army officials acknowledged that the 30 mm cannons used by the Apache gunners were far bigger than what was needed to kill the men, but said it is the smallest weapon the Apaches have."

I love that quote.

I honestly have no idea what the Geneva Convention says about this, but I do know that Army gunners are certainly allowed to fire on ground troops with their guns.

If they really believed that the tube was an RPG or missile, that would explain the haste they used in firing. Notice from the video that the first burst totally misses the target, falling well short of the area pictured.

1. Pokemon USA Dec 30, 2003, 18:36 Raven
 
In case anyone cares...

Wizards of the Coast -- which was the exclusive North American manufacturer, distributor and marketer of Pokemon trading cards until September -- said yesterday that it had settled its lawsuit with Pokemon USA Inc., The Pokemon Co., Nintendo of America Inc. and two Pokemon USA employees. The company filed the lawsuit in October, alleging patent infringement, breach of contract and misappropriation of trade secrets, among other claims.

I'm guess that this means that they were sued for not paying for some poke-related advertising?

Who owns the rights for The Bard's Tale anyway? It will probably cost a pretty penny for Fargo to get the rights to use the name.

Being old enough to have played the original module, I am surprised that the level cap is so low. Sure, you start out fighting swarms of kobolds and goblins, but you end up fighting Elemental Lords and such.

I see no information about a leaked beta. Unless you are speaking of the "review copies" that got sent out to magazines and royally trashed in the reviews...

Overnight shipping isn't the same as same-day. You can keep blaming the stores around you for not having it, or cope with the fact that even most specialty stores pay for overnight shipping of games, not same-day.

Carrier pigeon or no, even people who ordered the game directly from Namco will be getting the game delivered tomorrow.
