    U.S - Fallout 3

    Japan - That game where you find witches by groping underaged girls.

    There was some blog by a black guy teaching in japan.
    His stories of avoiding students trying to shove their thumbs up his ass were so funny.

    I think Japanese game designers tend to stick to trope and convention and onerous storytelling in lieu of modernity sometimes.

    Other times we get Katamari though!

    Also I just hate JRPG's. HATE

    Also, the Japanese think all western video games are filled with old guys in power suits (Gears, Half Life, Halo, even Fallout 3 to some extent)

    not that I'm defending them or anything, they have vending machines for used underwear for chrissake

    No RPG has held my attention for more than a week.

    Except Baldur's Gate II.

    now now, Final Fantasy, while incredibly overhyped and stale, has brought forth some incredible storylines. Let us not forget FF6 (FF7 can get bent).

    My initial reaction is strongly pro-American video games, solely on the strength of Baldur's Gate and Fallout.

    The thing is, it's easy to forget Madden...but it's out there. Oh yes, it's out there.

    The second time I was turned to stone and didn't realise that that killed you. My character was still standing up! I didn't even know that he had been turned to stone in the first place!!

    Western RPG's are better.

    Japan makes some cool arcade and puzzle games.

    The thing that you also have to remember about Japanese games is that for the most part, we only get the ultra-big-budget, incredibly mainstream Japanese games. It's sort of like judging all American cinema based only on Hollywood blockbusters and shitty parody movies.

    Of course, there's also lots of smaller Japanese games that wouldn't do well here just because American and Japanese taste are so incredibly different, even before taking actual quality into account.

    And I guess Japan doesn't really make FPS games (probably the motion sickness thing)

    They can't design controls for horror games to save their lives either.

    Can I just say that I've been doing the whole =/= representing "does not equal" for a while around work and with friends and always get "WTF is that?". Thank you good sir for perpuating this as mainstream.

    One friend even made me make her a macro in Word for this. It is now just that awesome.

    Unsung hero eve-

    no not quite.

    I don't know boolean strings or whatever. I just appropriated it from math.

    So != represents "does not equal"?

    != is a boolean operator in C and its derived languages, that returns "true" if the value on the left is not equal to the value on the right, and false if the values are the same.

    In other words, yes.

    I have a question that can only go here.

    I seem to remember Pony telling a story where he punched a guy in the face at a bar because he liked Lolita by Nabokov. Did this happen or am I just imagining things?

    No see because the person liked Lolita he has a thing for little girls and he probably just came back from raping like five thousand underage girls in an underground fighting tournament

    Man, in Lolita it's not about wanting to rape kids, because he still wants to fuck her when she's an adult.

    Fuck off and die.
