Gun-fu is to Jet Li's WAR as Car-fu is to the Wachowski's Speed Racer.

MTV and Harmonix have absolutely nothing to do with Dance Dance Revolution. Konami makes the games.
Don't complain because people are better than you. There's always a bigger fish.
Jul 19th 2007 7:31PM As far as tech support staff saying that a problem has never been reported, I'm pretty sure they're trained to respond with that when their corporation doesn't know what's causing the problem.
I know when I had ISP problems, I called every day for over two weeks, and every time I was told that no one had reported any issues (I did know this to be untrue). Finally, one day I called and there was a tape recording saying that tech support was closed and explaining what the problem was that affected ALL customers in the area (in this case, a backbone was overloaded).
I realize that ISP != console, but I think the principle remains the same. Saying that there is a problem without actually knowing WHAT the problem is, can be a very bad move.
Jul 13th 2007 3:38PM Actually, those newspapers are spot on. E3 is a press event now, not a consumer event. Microsoft and Sony treated it like a consumer event, Nintendo was the only one that actually played to the press. They got their return in spades from the MAJORITY of the press, which is NOT gaming oriented. And that will lead to further returns in the consumer market that reads the press' information. So in that respect, Nintendo wins E3.
If this were, say, TGS or E For All, then it'd be right to say Sony won.
Jul 12th 2007 6:27PM Why not just rotate the battlegrounds?
Have 3 battlegrounds up at once. On its bonus weekend, rotate the battleground in and rotate the oldest one out.
Blizzard would have to do something about the token system, but honestly, the token system is kind of worthless. I know I can manage 100 tokens easily before I can even buy an item with honor points.

It's not a coincidence that it looks a bit like an assault rifle.

You develop online play alongside the offline play. If you develop online play at the end, it's very possible to run into coding conflicts that can mean major amounts of time and money wasted.
As for the press conferences, I was underwhelmed by all of them, but Nintendo delivered everything that I WANTED to know. The rest of it was gravy, rather thin gravy though.

It's not exactly kicking. You'd just make sure you're the only two people in the raid group and then drop group once you're inside the instance and obtained the Raid ID. Then invite 24 other people.

Semaphore requires no sound. It's a method of communication by waving two flags/beacons/whatever.
