General consensus is that Rau was freaking awesome i guess. His final speech truly was done in a frightening way. I also think Andy's voice was cast very good. Not very often you can hear someone say "It tastes great with yoghurt sauce" and still seem cool. :lol: Mwu was a little above average, as w...

Siphon FIlter 2: Waaay back in the PS1 days, me and a friend were playing a deathmatch. Only two-player support, but meh. It was my first go at the game, so I was hiding and shooting in the air. He came around the corner, and i pulled out my knife. We ran at each other, and... knifed each other at ...

Yeah. Microsoft pretty much just showed us some shooters. Nintendo just gloating. And Sony just explaining away the HOME fiasco. Ever since E3 was cut off to the fans a few years ago, the presentations have been getting smaller. Companies are pulling out to hold their own private exhibitions. :? Wel...

WHat would be wrong with Oblivion on steroids with guns??? Bethesda, since the early nineties, has been one of the leading development studios for RPGs. Morrowind and Oblivion are indeed fine examples of the level of detail put into each of their games. Seeing this legendary developer united with a ...

I've recently come into possession of Armored Core Last Raven and Assassin's Creed. Assassin's Creed is a load of fun, but one thing that bugs me is you can basicly walk around holding the right trigger and A button to do everything. Hey Outlaw, is Formula Front available in the US? Should be. We e...

The only real reasons would be to save fuel and prevent spawn camping. Besides, in later series, notably C.E., ships in the atmosphere (Archangel, Minerva, Vosgalov-class) utilise catapults. Not sure, but i think the thrust gain there would be more substantial, owing to friction, air resistance, and...

Cant say i would have thought of it myself, but, suprisingly, i do similar things with other games/shows.

I first discovered GUNDAM in 2005 with the release of SEED here in Australia.

That problem is not limited to DBZ-many fighting games (Virtua Fighter 5, DOA 4, etc) suffer from the same problem. Extremely frustrating.

WHat game are we talking about here? Your original post was scant on details.

If it is Armoured Core, a fast moving AC with an EO chest and weapon pods always seems to do the trick for me.

Well with people asking about rumors being confirmed or denied...

(IE: Taking over the protagonist role) I've never even...

Yeah, that's generally it. Plot hacks and bad physics. By all means, Kira would have been fried and launched into a near-earth orbit from the size of that explosion.
I still don't get why the explosion, if caused by water heating, coincided with the Freedom getting stabbed, though.

I would recommend 360, for the DLC, multiplayer, etc. The online community, in my opinion, has a bit more substance. I've always found that the requirement that you pay for LIVE was a bit of a deterrent to the casual noobs found on free PC games. The DLC system seems pretty sound, i don't know how t...

AC, AI and Gundam Sentience

The concept of mecha (or other war-machines) with an AI has been around for ages. Just look at Ghost in the Shell, Yukikaze, Zoids, Gundam Wing, etc. Equally prevalent are sentient mecha , mecha with the ability to think for themselves. Again, GiTS, Yukikaze, and Zoids, among others come to mind. Wh...

I think this is probably another dead end. A spaceship's engines push it forward by expelling propellant. The faster the propellant is moving, the more thrust you get. The phenomenon we experience as "heat" is actually a product of molecular motion, and when you're dealing with rocket engines, the ...
