To design a game for an online environment is the developer's worst nightmare. Johnson believes that multipayer games are “guaranteed to have three or four times as many bugs as single player games.” The game needs to communicate with the computer's network, then with the Internet, then with the other computer's network, and then with the other computer.
Doesn't quite explain the various PBEM issues...

But for those of us who refuse to use anything but mice for our FPS games...how are we going to be able to use mice with our Playstation 3 since most of us don't have a proper flat surface to use near our TV? I mean, other than a coffee table. (How awkward would that be?)
IIRC, the makers of the Phantom Console are planning to help with that... think there was a news item a month ago or so about their living room keyboard/mouse thing...

Close - join a market late.
By Antony Bruno

SAN FRANCISCO (Billboard) - Creative Labs is showing no signs of slowing in its pursuit of Apple Computer's iPod market share, with the introduction of the Vision:M video-capable MP3 player.

The 30GB device features a 2.5-inch high-resolution color screen that the company claims is able to display four times the color of the video iPod. And at four hours, its video playback time is double that of Apple's.

The Vision:M supports MPEG-2, MPEG-4 and WMV video formats, among others, as well as TiVoToGo and digital photos. In addition to video, the device is compatible with all WMA-based music stores, including support for all portable music subscription services.

Other features include an FM radio tuner, voice recording and Microsoft Outlook organizer compatibility, as well as a 15-hour battery. It is available in a variety of colors and sells for about $330 in retail stores and at us.creative.com.

Old strip from 2003 being recycled whilst Amend takes some time off... Still funny though.

Some of the list is suspect; but I can't disagree with Gauntlet being influential; many multiplayer overhead view inspirations there; plus co-op is always a good thing. Tetris and Dragon Warrior inspired scads of puzzlers and RPGs alike. SF2 is a solid pick as an influential fighter. FFVII is a good counterpart for influential story-tied CG... (plus it alone probably sold more PS1s than any other game)

Not sure I'd pick the 1st zelda over A Link To The Past so far as good games, but maybe the first was influential. Not sure they need 2 mario games on the list; mario bros as a breakout platformer maybe, but Mario64?

they're probably fixing other bugs whilst updating/repackaging for the mega box and want any version-based handshaking for multi to work. <shrug>

ps, I don't even know what 'Canadian Bacon' is.
Almost fitting with the running theme of the day, it's also a movie (released prior to "Wag the Dog") about a war betwixt the US & Canada... also a little 'West Wing' foreshadowing in the casting of the president - a canadian actor, iirc

Speaking of peter parker, anyone see the alternate covers to the current cross-comic spiderman tales ("The Other")? They focus on different costumes spider has worn over the years... Swanky... Here's a crude animated .gif someone made with them...

Enahs, there's no comparison here between overall education between the nations. Canada hands down leaves the U.S. in the dust as do about 27 other nations.
xXBatmanXx: List them.
27 was probably exaggerating, but if you go by the Human Development Index (which factors in education, the original context of his remark, which I re-added above to make xXBatmanXx's quote clearer), he might be able to reach 1/3 of that, albiet also light on the dust...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_Human_Development_Index

Not even sure why I'm responding, stats are stas and it never provokes discussion to deal in maximums... folks always getting all us vs them about things...

Speaking of Canadian American relations.
Is American cheese called American cheese in Canada?
Not sure, but sometimes cheese can be gouda.
Around my side we still call Canadian Bacon, uh, Canadian Bacon instead of just Bacon.

Pedle Zelnip - good post. You could've mentioned our folks taking over in Afghanistan freed American troops to go to Iraq, thus supporting it indirectly without going against the popular opinion that didn't wish any involvement in Iraq.

It's just political posturing. Canadians always see the mouse/elephant thing, and want to make sure our leaders are preserving our uniqueness, etc etc. Dustups over nothing, really. We're pissed over softwood, grumpy over kyoto, and cranky over mad cows. So what. Good friends can get in a row sometimes without suddenly not being friends or coming to blows.

Sometimes it comes out during our elections (and the us ambassador responding in a similar public forum AFTER one of our ambassadorial staff in the US was already privately chastised about Martin's Montreal 'global conscience' remarks didn't help) and sometimes it comes out during your elections (Chretien's comments back in 2000 that it would be better if Gore wins). Besides, I'm seeing more OMFG, WTF did you say, what have you done for us lately (like some of xXBatmanXx's stuff in this thread) in the reactions from below the 49th than I'm seeing "huzzah for standing up to the yanks" up here.
One might argue that it is something of Liberal party tradition to be somewhat confrontational with the reigning powers of the US. Trudeau and Chretien weren't exactly busom buddies with Reagan and Clinton (or Bush). %)
One might argue it's tradition for liberal leaders to be prime minister too (only one hasn't). And Reagan and Mulroney got along fab (with Thatcher making three). Ahhh, the good ol' days.

Yeah, I always found Rick Mercer's bit "Talking to Americans" ( http://radio.cbc.ca/programs/thismorning/sites/a&e/mercer_010330.html ) or whatever to be really stupid. Fish in a barrel, and I don't mean in a demeaning way to 'mericans, just that as Fang said, if you act sincere and ask people about something they don't know about, of course you'll get mockable answers sooner or later.
hell, ask the average albertan to name two maritime premiers...
If someone started asking me specific questions about New Zealand (sorry, Kosumo, first place I thought of), I might give an answer they'd find funny soon enough.

Actually, I liked the first two Blade movies for what they were. Third one took a nosedive well before the infamous "cock juggling thundercunt" line. Not sure the TV show will have much longevity. But Raimi didn't direct those, so not sure the relevance.

I found the first spidey to be boring, and the villain to be weak; was not sold on ol' tobey. Enjoyed the second spidey a fair bit more, and am still looking forward to see how Raimi handles the third one. as well as how he works in bruce campbell's cameo
End point is Darkman is rental worthy if you haven't seen it. Can't speak to the sequels, I suspect they are poo.
