decrappifying the BBC's crap-ful 'documentary'.


I am hating media more and more. Even the BBC is now infected with biased crap. (not that they were unbiased before).

 

I stopped reading the newspaper last year. Figured that I'm better off spending my time reading up on history.

Yep

 

I've come to realize that I should stop complaining about this stuff

 

The 'common folk' can believe their lies. 

 

I like to be a historian on topics...BUT I like to fight for the little guy. I am VERY biased when doing history for this reason. The guy I am discussing with already knows the 'big' and well recieved point of view. I don't need to discuss that anymore. I'll just discuss the other side.

Did you visit the campus before applying there?
Yep smily_headphones1.gif 11 hour drive frown.gif

I had to consider many factors.

Nice nice. Still, congratulations man. You'll be spending the next ≧ 4 years there, so it's good that you went to visit the campus before hand. I know a few people who switched colleges because they didn't like the environment, weather, surrounding area, etc.

I know Vitas, he is all over chinese TV

 

@Eve

 

ohh i see

Duuuuude Vitas! Love his falsetto. I ripped 2 of his albums from the library. I remember seeing that Asian guy in the 11th grade and laughing my butt off in-class. I would honestly like to see him perform live, but most of his concerts have been in China.

 

I posted this in the M-100 thread and one guy nearly had a cow trying to figure out what he had just watched.  XD

 

 

....before you ask: http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Is_vitas_the_Russian_singer_gay

 


Anyone a fan of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time?

 

I just started playing The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D. I've played the original, and the re-make+Master Quest on the GameCube.

 

Control-wise, it feels awkward.

  • I just got the slingshot and the navigation speed without using the gyroscope is pretty slow and impractical in my opinion.
  • I keep wanting to press Y (up-arrow on the N64 controller, C-Up on the GameCube controller) to go to first-person view. Instead, it activates an assigned weapon and I've wasted a few Deku Nuts that way.
  • Using the analogue slider for spin attacks feels unrewarding too since the analogue slider feels so flimsy compared to the joysticks on the N64 and GameCube controllers. Maneuvering the camera with this slider feels clunky and I have a hard time orienting myself in-game compared to the GameCube or N64 controllers. My analogue stick is a bit squeaky too.
  • The new menu system feels clunky and I miss the rotating cube interface. They even changed the sound effects such that each menu makes the "opening menu" sound effect instead of "opening menu" sound effect and the "switch within menu" sound effect like in previous games. That plus the item selection screens have a weird, gaudy-looking stone border; it just doesn't fit this Zelda game.
  • Want to know how to save? Well don't bother looking at the instruction manual since it doesn't tell you. I had to look this up on the internet. In previous games you went to the menu screen and pressed the "sword" button. In this version you press Start or Select. How intuitive.
  • Backflips have changed in animation such that it is really slow. I feel that doing backflips will not make you travel faster as it did in previous versions of the game.
  • Likewise, the jump attack animation seems slightly longer, especially at the end of the attack

 

Graphical-wise, this game looks gorgeous for the most part.

  • Game sprites (at least the Kokiri and Link) now look more cartoony and anime-like which is weird.
  • Textures have been improved, but particles in-game look a bit weird to me; remember those random floating "pollen spores" that flew around in Kokiri Forest? In this version, I feel that there are less of those flying around or they start appearing closer toward the player.
  • Because of the above 2 points, I feel that the nostalgic value of the game has been decreased.
  • When throwing rocks, they literally blow-up and huge chunks fly all over the place (as opposed to a small burst of rocks in previous versions).
  • When jumping, Link kind of spreads his legs instead of just "jumping" normally. It's kind of award and makes Link look like a drunkard or something.
  • Daaaaang does that 3D depth effect effect look nice in this game. Unlike Fire Emblem: Awakening, the textures between 2D and 3D are not lost, and nor are the colour saturation level. In Awakening, characters lost detail and colours looked washed out between 3D and 2D.

 

Alas, I couldn't do the "infinite sword glitch" in this version yet, but I haven't really been trying. I was also going to try to see if the Zora's Domain glitch is still there too...or the early Gold Scale glitch, or getting to adult Link with only the Kokiri's Emerald (or maybe without it at all).

 

 

 

 

 

Overall, not bad, but not perfect: 8/10

Controls are awkward, graphic effects improved but doesn't feel the same, overall nostalgic feeling is kind of diminished for me.

I can't really complain when it has one of the nicest campus's on the East Coast.

 

I feel bad when people type long posts that I can't respond too..

Watching Yahari Ore

http://myanimelist.net/anime/14813/Yahari_Ore_no_Seishun_Love_Come_wa_Machigatteiru.

 

And I gotta say, I dig Yukinon's voice

http://myanimelist.net/people/869/Saori_Hayami

 

Turns out, she was also Ikaros in Sora no Otoshimono and Ayase in Oreimo.

Not that much (Quake 3 to be exact). Probably some fancy config or more likely a modded engine for demo playback (i guess, motion blur).

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
In the light novel, Saori is supposed to go Kirino's house for party, in this episode it does not happen.


Kirino, Kuroneko and Kyosuuke is supposed to go to her house to find out why she is depressed, but in anime it is a birthday surprise, and Saori appears in her fully normal form instead of acting as Kaori like in the LN.


Episode is mostly Saori's backstory, which is much less in the LN.


Kaori came back in the anime, in the LN no such thing happened.
Huh, that's interesting... Thanks for the clarification!

Sigh...my dream that I can one day go out and buy that from a local store. But, in 'Merica, that doesn't seem possible.
They have figurines at the kanfosmfhviamdbfudksndn bookstores in Portland and Seattle biggrin.gif

Hmmm, looking through the other anime forums, it is said that the Kaori backstory comes from volume 9

and I haven't got that far...
So they're really screwing it up then! LOL

Off to prom I go, talk to everyone tomorrow or later tonight.

That was a beautiful song, but I am more of an active person. It was too laid back for me.


Hilarious....ly true.

@Borisu

Are you close to episode 46 of Gundam Seed Destiny? 

 


First half of Majestic Prince's episode 3, and I am getting fooled into being fooled that it may NOT be such a parody.
