  1. My brother got a Wii on launch day after he pre-ordered one. I've been on it a few times and I must say it's severely unimpressive. Most notably I played the Bowling game on WiiSports, so I swing the Wiimote along and I think to myself "I didn't swing to the left, why's it doing that?" Then the same thing happened again, so I thought to myself, I shall test how accurate this really is. The next time I swang the wiimote an unmistakably vigorous turn as far right as I could. What happened? The bowling ball went dead straight. The same thing happens with the other WiiSports games, they are wholesomely inaccurate and not even worth the bother in my opinion. Tennis was fun but you know what? I'd rather go out and play real tennis, it's a lot more accurate.

    I've also played Red Steel. My god, that was awful. Aside from it being harder to control than a drunk Arsenal fan after losing to Ipswich, it was just a poorly made game. The Wiimote is absolutely no good for first person shooters, in theory it sounds great, but in actuality a lightgun is far better.

    What the Wii needs to do is successfully recreate on-screen what the gamer is doing. At the moment it can't, I don't care what anybody says, it cant. Until the Wii is capable of immersing people into games that way it has no USP and so there's no real reason why i'd want to play it over my PC or Xbox 360. Or my PS3 when I get one.

  2. Exactly, atheists are laughing at what they think they know about Christianity. Whist Christians are laughing at the fact that athiests seem to know nothing about Christianity but fundementalism. Everybody wins.

     

    I would like a religious debate, but the humor forum isn't exactly the place for it. Suffice to say atheists do not think Christianity consists solely of Creationism and the like. That flash video was just a humorous take on the faith debate and obviously not meant to be taken seriously by anyone.

  3. So is it quite nu-metally, 'classic' LP Feenix?

     

    It's different. Much more metal, and a lot heavier. But that's only one song. It's hard to tell if the rest of the album will be the same.

     

     

    Wicked song man I can't wait for that one. when is their album coming out?

     

    It was supposed to be this year. But now they've said it wont be done til early next year.

  4. These are just some really nifty Firefox extensions.

    The best one of which is;

    Mouse Gestures

    https://addons.mozilla.org/extensions/moreinfo.php?id=39&application=firefox

    I love this one, it's the ultimate in laziness. Moving all the way over to your keyboard and hitting Ctrl + T takes up so much energy, right? Well, with this all you have to do is hold down the right mouse button and move the mouse up. There's all sorts of different mouse movements for different fuctions.

  5. Well actually the band were all together way before they were even signed to a label. All except for Chester. Chester joined the band when Jeff Blue from Warner sent a tape to Chester cause he thought he'd like the band. Sure enough he did. So he recorded some vocals, they loved him and he joined the band. I don't see what the big deal is about that.
  6. As Ive always said bout Linkin park, not bad for a manufactured band.

     

    Right. LP knew a lot of people thought they were manufactured. They hated it. That's why with the special edition their Meteora album they included a "The Making of Meteora" disc. Which clearly documents the writing, recording and production of the album right from when they wrote the first riff on the tour bus outside Ozzfest, right up to mixing the album.

     

    Here's a little excerpt from "Get Me Gone" where Mike explains what i'm on about:-

     

    Put out the album and the talk went flat

    It was funny at first, but then the humor faded

    When some magazines printed that our label made us

    We were too good to be true

    Some were saying ghost writers were writing all that we do

    So we had to disprove it, we spelled it out

    To the detail, how we do it when we’re making this music

     

    Basically, they were tired of being called manufactured. So they recorded the making of Meteora. Only the people who saw it were mostly hardcore fans. It shut those who doubted that did see it up though.

  7. I saw this movie on Saturday. All I can tell you is, it's terrible.

     

    I see the movie as proof that there is no such thing as God. For God would not let such a thing as this exist. Nacho Libre is a scar upon humanity. It sucks more than a Swedish prostitute with a vaccum cleaner. Just don't see this film. You will regret it.

  8. The only way they're going to escape going down with the nu-metal ship in my opinion is if they concentrate on their more experimental, trip-hoppy Breaking The Habit-type stuff. I can't see anyone warming to any more Somewhere I Belong-esque rap-rock rehashes.

     

    Well they have been quoted as saying that their new album will be more Breaking The Habit esque. But from hearing this new song that seems not to really be the case. I don't know, i'm a huge LP fan and i'm sure whatever they come out with should be great.

    Make up your own minds but to me that is a very shoddy list. A fair few of these are just overhyped, badly shot "classics" with poor acting. That said there are a few good films in there. Including Dawn of the Dead, one of my all time favourites.

  11. I'd have to go along with the opinion here that there is more to this story than meets the eye. No perfectly normal 11 year old would commit suicide over not being able to watch BB. There's more to this. Maybe abuse on the part of the parents, maybe the girl had some kind of mental disposition. It's nothing but speculation but you do have to try and put stories like this into context. It might seem uterly ridiculous that an 11 year old would hang herself over not being able to watch BB. It wouldn't seem so ridiculous to think that an 11 year old would hang herself after ongoing arguements with her parents, and this one just pushed her over the edge.
  12. I usually deal with bad news by laughing. I mean, there just isn't any point in getting worried about it cause it isn't going to help. But if you can laugh at it and just keep going then you're fine.

    Although it does depend on the kind of bad news. If the news was say "oh, were locked out of our friend's house after a party and everybody inside is asleep and we can't wake her parents up so the six of us will have to sleep in the porch." (and that did happen). yeah, I can laugh my ass of at that cause worrying isn't gonna help.

    If the bad news was say "Your best friend's been in a car accident" yeah then I would be extremely upset. In that kinda situation yeah I wouldn't take the bad news very well at all.

  13. From computerandvideogames.com

    360 minus 100 equals loads cheaper than the PS3

    Wednesday 21-Jun-2006 9:48 AM Reports suggest Microsoft redesigning Xbox 360 chips to slash prices in time for Sony's launch

     

    Whichever camp your allegiance happens to lie in regarding the Xbox 360 and PS3, there's no denying that Sony's next-gen machine is going to cost a packet compared to Microsoft's when it hits shelves later this year. Now, if internet reports are to be believed, Microsoft could be preparing to make that price gap even wider.

     

    According to website Britxbox.co.uk, a source close to Microsoft has revealed that the company is currently redesigning the ATI and IBM chips inside the 360 to allow a significant price reduction of the machine, come PS3's launch in November, with Core and Premium versions supposedly plummeting to sub-200 GBP and 220 GBP respectively.

     

     

    I already have one and paid the full £270. Not exactly breaking the bank in the first place. Looks like bad news for Sony though.

  14. Proudy, it doesn't sound like your very computer-literate to me. So i'd suggest you get an external hard drive. It'll plug straight into your computer, no problem. If you were to go out and buy an internal HDD then you'd have to install it. Since you don't know how you'd only end up paying someone at PC World or whatever to do it for you, and they'll try and make you pay some ridiculous amount of money for them to do it.

     

    The thing is though there is no point in you getting a huge HDD if you're not going to use the extra space. If all you do is listen to music, play a few games and browse the internet then you don't need much more than 40GB. I myself work with video editing, photoshop, audio editing, games, and have tons of TV shows on my HDD. Which is why I have a 300GB one. It depends on your usage. And finally, if your computer has a HDD that old, it suggests the rest of your computer is fairly old. So if you do get a new HDD, it's going to get bottlenecked.
