Re: Sonic Unleashed?

Paving over that little speed bump... The next generation may be the last one in terms of advance of graphical power. [...] Once you get photo realistic, you can't rely on graphics to sell video games anymore. I honestly wonder about that sometimes. Things look really good in the terms of standard v...

Re: Obama now President of USA.

Y'know, if you were, um, insuring marriages or something, I'd agree. Charge more for the gay couples. That's what insurance companies do. Stereotype your demographics and use that to conjure up a fee. But lawmaking by statistics is kind of just plain un-American. I'm aware of how promiscuous the gay...

Re: Obama now President of USA.

"They were just born that way" shouldn't be the core justifier of the cause. Too often this line of thought, intentionally or not, carries the undertone that if homosexuality were a choice then it would be the wrong choice. This was the biggest line of thought to cross as a recovering adolescent Ca...

Re: Sonic Unleashed?

E-102 Omega Street is just laughably absurd, but they're at least attempting little bits of un-sly humor here and there. They haven't really tried that since the Got Ring? blimp in Radical Highway.

Re: "Sonic 1, 2, 3, & Knuckles" UNANSWERED BACKSTORIES

LABYRINTH ZONE : -- HOW did Sonic end up in the Labyrinth zone? Every other zone is easy to comprehend(Sonic just ran to them.), but running to a labyrinth, hidden deep in the darkness of the island, doesn't seem very believeable. The labyrinth is on Sonic's island, and he should know that if he we...

With my TV, the aspect ratio can only be changed if it's standard definition. Once it's HD, it refuses to mess with it.

Re: Obama now President of USA.

Assuming those with civil unions have all the same legal rights as those who get married, why the need to get married? Is it the location (i.e. house of worship), or is it a matter of principle? (i.e. 'if they can do it, we should be able to also.') Mainly the principle, like you said. The reason f...

Re: Sega Mega Drive Ultimate Collection

I was once out with my friends, when we went to rent a DVD. We had an argument over whether to get widescreen or fullscreen. I'm not kidding, the people who said fullscreen said, "Because you get more of the picture that way. I don't know why they just arbitrarily add black bars to block out the top...

I just don't 'get' action figures. I understand the allure of having them as toys, knick-knacks, or collectibles, but don't feel the drive to partake in any of those concepts. Especially not with that ugly son of a bitch. I feel like Sega's pushing the Werehog like he might be the next Metal Sonic o...

Re: Obama now President of USA.

I can't fully get behind "equal but different". It leaves the door open for them to move the goal posts, and if truly was equal then it wouldn't need to go by a different name. It's like having white water fountains and black water fountains. I totally agree that the goal should be gay marriage. An...

Re: Obama now President of USA.

It's not exactly a new idea. It won't work, though. Marriage is too deeply ingrained in secular tradition. It's fairly obvious that Christmas isn't about worshiping Jesus for the vast majority of people, but we're not going to start calling it "December 25th Day". Touché. Maybe "brilliant" wasn't t...

The quote sounds to me like the game is just going to stretch to 16x9, thus ruining the aspect ratio.

I think that would run into the "Flying Spaghetti Monster" problem of "we know you're just fucking with us".

Just sad that it now has to go through the courts again and if successful it will be seen as “activist judges” overruling the will of the people yet again.
