What started with the Dreamcast is now complete. Sega has officially fallen from grace.

I could try and wangle you a pass, but you wouldn't want to come. E3 is all la-de-da business, after all wink.gif (And no, I highly doubt I can actually wangle passes for anyone.) For purposes of advertising the game, it's probably more important to show it to the press before showing it to gamers - 70k people first hand is good, but it's not a patch on the hundreds of thousands that will read the articles and see it on websites.

It's been confirmed that I'll be allowed to take extra days off around the start of June, so I'll be doing a bit of a jaunt to visit people around the area. Hooray!


You can barely move at PAX for folk pointing cameras and fuzzy mics on sticks around the place. Biggest gaming convention in the country, you know. Shedloads of coverage of it in the US gaming press, blogs etc.

Plus, Seattle's lush in August laugh.gif
LA is grim in August. Too hot and smoggy as all get-out.

I already have an action plan should the Westboro muppets turn up within driving distance of me. Here it is:

1: Round up a carload or two of friends (no more).
2: Make our own signs (see below)
3: Go stand right next to the Westboro lot with our own signs. Passerbys will assume that we're all one group. It's beautiful, because it exercises the exact same freedom-of-expression laws that allow them to do their schtick.
4: A couple of your friends film the whole thing from a slight distance. Youtube here we come!

Here's some of the signs I've come up with so far:

WE ARE IDIOTS (this is why you need some friends, that way, you can claim that the 'we' is referring to you and your friends).

GOD HATES FROGS

GOD HATES FRAGS (with a picture of the Master Chief with a big red X through him)

WHY ARE YOU LOOKING AT ME?

YOU LOOK NICE TODAY. HAVE YOU LOST WEIGHT?

IGNORE US

MOVE ALONG - NOTHING TO SEE HERE

WE MADE THESE SIGNS OURSELVES

You should totally wangle a ticket to PAX instead. LA sucks, and Seattle doesn't.

You could totally sell it to your company. E3 is all la-de-da business, frou-frou meh. PAX is 70,000 *gamers*, that is, 70k potential customers that will be looking at your game. Plus, it's in Seattle. Did I mention that?

Speaking of wangling, I'm assuming you can't wangle me a pass into E3? LA's a gert long drive down the coast, but a day's drive in a convertible in June along the coast could be quite sweet.

Oh, and hello.

*this is sort of a bump because I've seen you around postin and I happen to love this thread*

On to my problem. In our city we have the CFR (Canadian Finals Rodeo I think. I'm not really the rodeo or what have you type, but I think thats what it is.) At work we are supposed to dress up for the week in support. Not being from a cowboy lineage I'm not really sure how to do this. I'm of the understanding that jeans are part of the outfit which I own plenty of. I even have one of those cute straw-ish cowboy hats. But what shirt do I wear? I was told plaid, but that goes against every fashion sense I have. I don't even know where one could procure a plaid shirt. Walmart? Is there any way to make them look better?

Sincerely, avoids bad fashion like the plague


Lucky you asked me. I am descended from a multi-millenial line of cowboys, you know. Some of them might even have been miffic. You can tell by my forum-name, you see. Like the Waltons, as a boy, I was known as Jonboy. Now that my balls have dropped, my hairline receded and my ability to grumble at the behaviour of teenagers has blossomed, that moniker is no longer applicable. Hence, Jonman instead. All you RPG-geeks out there can think of it as levelling up my name, if you like.

Anyway, as a result, I'm eminently qualified to dispense sartorial advice to wannabe-cowboys, despite never having ridden a horse. I've not so much herded cows as walked past them a few times. That's enough for me - they're smelly buggers, and they've always got a bit of an evil gleam in their eyes.

So, sartorial elegance, here we come. I can tell you all the best-dressed cowboys next year won't be wearing plaid. Unless they're Scottish cowboys, of course. Plaid is the pattern used in traditional kilts and tartans. You're thinking of check (translated for the British forumites as chequed). Which of course is a completely different kettle of molluscs.

The good news is that check shirts shouldn't be that hard to find. The discerning buyer-on-a-budget can probably find one in their nearest charidee outlet. I suggest you start there, because Walmart, as we all know, is crystallised from purest evil, and should thus be avoided unless you're the blackest-hearted villain in your vicinity.

Incidentally, it might be worth noting that the entire point of fancy dress is to embrace bad fashion. Otherwise, it would just be dress.

And on a completely different note, feel free to share your best plague-avoidance techniques. Mine include not rubbing diseased rats all over my body, and refusing to make the beast with two backs with folk who have more scab than skin.

Dear Jonman,

Do you have the awesome ability to sustain not one, but TWO "Ask Jonman" threads? If so, where does that ability come from?


No. No I do not. However, I do have the awesome ability to close the other thread, thereby negating the need to sustain two threads.

I could tell you that I'm the last in a multi-millenial line of custodians of a miffic power, but that would be arse-gravy. Ultimately, Mata (or perhaps Mr Fuzzy) clicks a wee box that lives on the intertron, and away I go.

Moved this to the 'other' Ask Jonman thread and locking this one, so there's one massive thread of nonsense clogging up the forum. As if.

There's a good possibility that Mrs Jonman and I will make it to the January meet, but I think we're going to have to leave it to a last minute decision, as we're spending Chrimble in the US, and may well be too skint to make it.

Mind you, I should probably warn you that it's on the day after my birthday, so I'll be requiring birthday beer.

Nah, it's OK. You can buy tea in Starbucks. Therefore we, as a nation, have no innate problem with it.

Well, either way, the tea would have gone to waste. The East India tea company was going bankrupt because no-one in the Colonies would buy their stock. It was basically collecting dust in a warehouse before it was shipped over the Atlantic.

Aren't you ignoring the root word? Terrorists, by definition, use terror. Guerilla tactics do not make terrorists. I don't think that the colonists were, any more than the redcoats were, trying to terrorize the population. There was propaganda, I'm sure, on both sides, but I don't think that it amounted to terror.

QUOTE
Britain was the lawful ruler of the Americas at the time The "Americans" rose up against them, They were therefore insurgents using guerilla tactics, Is it such a jump at this point to use the label Terroroist?


Yes, because insurgents are not necessarily terrorists. They were insurgents, but did they really try to terrorize the British?


Dave, I'll forgive you for not realising this, but to the British, the sight of that much tea being wasted when your ancestors chucked it all in the sea in Boston would not only have been terrifying, but repugnant and morally reprehensible to boot. Crapping in the monarch's face would have cauased less horror.

Hate to burst your bubble Mata, but Okami's getting serious kudos from the import crowd on the Edge forum. Preaching to the choir, perhaps, but aren't you and I choirboys anyway? Metaphorically, of course. On another note, that Chokyouin Boykinthing you refer to was released over here as 'Monster Attack'. Harder to find than snake's knees, mind. Well worth the price of admission, I'm told. Mainly because of the low price of admission - launched at a tenner.

As for me, I hate myself for wanting to get Disgaea 2. I know it'll swallow my life, but I can't help myself. Likewise for Final Fantasy 12. Both Mrs Jonman and I are looking forward to the new Zeldas (Wii/'cube and DS), and of course....

GUITAR HERO 2....two player co-op mode, with individually selectable difficulty levels, and bass, lead and rythym sections. Nice!

Mmm, games.

I had a splurge on We Love Katamari (20 squid in Virgin's sale), and Killer 7 (a snip at a fiver in the same sale). Both are as mad as snakes ears. Killer 7 especially. There's a ghost in a bondage suit that hangs from the ceiling by string and gives you advice. I'm utterly confumbled by it. Looks freakin' wonderful though.

Other than that, plodding steadily through Dragon Quest, which is a very by-the-books RPG, but with lovely, lovely design.

Got a few of the Bit Generations GBA titles on the way from the Far East too. Looking forward to having a twiddle with them.

QUOTE (Mata @ Sep 12 2006, 10:29 AM) *
The games so far haven't had particularly impressive previews, and many are relying on very old IP that doesn't necessarily have much new to offer other than the new interface. Will that be enough? I've just had a look on Amazon and all the games are being sold for 50 each, which is steep by next-gen standards, but, considering that the technology really only requires last-gen development approaches, that does seem excessive. One of my long-standing issues with Nintendo has been their habit of selling the machines cheaply then the games steeply, and I'm not encouraged by the way that this seems to be a continuing trend.

Don't believe the prices Amazon quote - they're simply placeholders - Nintendo themselves haven't released any details as to RRPs for the software. The US release date was revealed today as Nov 19th at $250. The European details will be revealed tomorrow. I'm guessing either an early December release, but more likely a February release, at about 175 quid. The Japanese release is on 2nd December, and will retail for 25000 Yen (about 113 quid). I'd be gobsmacked if the games go on at 50 quid - Several of Ninty's head honchos have publicly complained about that being an unsustainable pricepoint. Added to the fact that they're squarely positioning themselves as the cheap option for next-gen - it simply wouldn't make sense to sell the games at a high price point.
Dunno what you mean by them selling sofware expensive. N64, sure, but that's because a cart is a helluva lot more expensive than a CD. Gamecube games were competetively priced - similar to PS2 and Xbox titles. They were in the US anyway (my gamecube's a US machine, so I've mostly ignored the UK Gamecube scene out of necessity). DS games are very reasonably priced, with the maximum being 30 quid.

QUOTE (Mata @ Sep 12 2006, 10:29 AM) *
To add insult to injury, the US prices are half those in the UK - yet again. I'm getting very irritated by the continual disregard given to European territories, and especially the UK, in regards to pricing. Why should we have to pay twice the amount as other countries for the same products?

Because it costs more to distribute goods than it does in the US. Profit margins are similar. But the government and the EU take a bigger slice. Write to your MP and complain.

QUOTE (Mata @ Sep 12 2006, 10:29 AM) *
Anyway, the Wii currently stands as a very interesting idea, but also something that could suffer greatly from the difficulty of extended physical play.

That's a myth - reports from people in devcos who've had access to the hardware for a while say that invariably, the amount of motion required (once you've learnt the controls) would be suitable to slouching in a comfy chair and wiggling your wrist a little.

QUOTE (Mata @ Sep 12 2006, 10:29 AM) *
I think $ony have screwed up their European release majorly: to allow their main rival a two-year headstart, to charge around 150 more for their console, to allow their biggest IP to slip from the release date, to have continual delays in the launch... It's not good.

I dunno. To a certain extent, I feel that the 'Playstation' brand has such strength that they could fill a box full of dead badgers, write 'PS3' on it, charge a kidney for it, and it would still fly off the shelves. You can't deny that to the man on the street, "Playstation" is synonomous with gaming in a way that M$, Xbox, Nintendo or Wii simply isn't.

Dear Jonman,

How can a life that is really that of a homebody sound so very dodgy? I work in a pharmacy and have a married roomate therefor I deal drugs and live with someone else's husband. I had a bunch of meal replacement supplements and so tell people I've taken to drinking lunch. The only new activity I've been doing is playing pool. And yesterday, when asked what I did that day, I could only say I'd spent most of the day with condoms and lubricants.

How do I get the life to match what it sounds like? Or, I suppose I could ask how to make my life sound more like it is. Or should I just enjoy people's confusion?


Yours,
Apparently up to something Dodgy.


Frankly, I think there's so much scope for fun here, the only way to do it is to take your above paragraph, write all the verbs on bits of paper and put them in a hat (or simliarly sized suitable container), then write all the verb objects on other bits of paper, and put them in a second hat.

Draw them out, and pair them up. Then you'll have the new version of the life you're to live. It could well lead to you selling other people's husbands, and living in a pharmacy, but that's the chance you take.

I had a wisdom tooth out last Friday. I lost it at the front desk when I was paying for it, and nearly passed out. Had to have a lie down in the waiting room for a half hour, then get the receptionist to call Mrs Jonman and ask her to come pick me up.

The poor bloke who was after me walked in to see me, white as a sheet, layed out on the waiting room floor - can't exactly have inspired confidence in him, but there you go.

We've gone DS crazy. In between Advance Wars (me) and New Super Mario Bros (Kat), the DS is getting a lot of airtime. So much so that we've just ordered a lovely ice blue DS Lite from Hong Kong. Mmmm, gadgets!

I've also been playing around with GT4 which I picked up for cheap off Fleabay. Obsessively enjoyable. I'm strangely attracted to the photo mode.

Dear Jonman. I have to get up at 5:00 am to be able to acctually wake up enough to get ready to go to school. Then I have to be at the bus stop by 6, only to enjoy an hour long ride around the city before arriving at my school which is a lovely 20 miles away from my house. At which point I'm half an hour early for my first class and get to waste that time wandering halls talking to people that like to tell me that I "look like you got run over by a truck!"

What level of unreasonable would this be?


That's definitely a level 8 unreasonableness, just above 'running over your neighbour's cat and claiming that it was aliens that did it' at level 7, and just below 'my cousin just bit my leg off' at level 9.

No it's not reasonable. But you're clearly no longer living the life of a carefree, scrounging student, which is in itself not very reasonable, but mostly necessary. I'm afraid that there's nowt more that can be said - you just have to lump it. Welcome to life.

Why does the commercial for Lunesta (a sleeping pill) announce that one of the side effects is drowsiness? Shouldn't that be implied by the fact that it is a freaking sleeping pill?

Presumable because if they didn't announce that, one of your stupid or conniving countrymen would sue the ass off the makers. And no-one wants to be assless, do they? Imagine how difficult sitting down would be, not to mention crimping off a chocolate lizard. It hardly bears thinking about.

As an addendum to Mike's post, I'd advise that Disgaea and Makai Kingdom are not suitable for the casual gamer - they're both up to the neck in stats, and require hours of idling inventory management. Don't get me wrong, they're both fab-frickin-tastic games, but both require a sizable investement in time to get the best out of them.

So my boyfriend bought me a PS2 while I've been on vacation as a welcome-home surprise (not much of a surprise, considering I'm still in Europe, but still). I'm totally grateful for the gift but I have NO idea what kind of games I would use on it, 'cept maybe Guitar Hero and DDR, which is what I wanted it for in the first place.

So, I need recommendations for games for someone who is:

1. not into violence
2. not spectacularly good at console games (as in, nothing too hard to get decent at please)
3. too busy to spend tons of time grinding through tedious parts of games or unlocking special features

I have no idea if that actually, uh, leaves any games left. But I figured it's worth asking. wink.gif


You, my dear, are right on the money with Guitar Hero - it pretty much single-handedly justifies the existance of PS2s. Buzz is also an absolute riot with 3 friends, but it doesn't look like it's out in the US. Boo. Mrs Jonman's quite keen on the Sly Cooper series - lovely design, and some decent cartoony platforming fun. I'll post more as they occur to me. And there's always Singstar, although it seems the first one's only coming out in the US next year. Tsk. Sure sign of a cultural backwater, that is.

Fantastic stuff, even if Jeremy makes me want to hit him. Hard. In the face.
