    Oliver Stone's Untold History Of The United States is a 10 part Documentary series by acclaimed and controversial film Director Oliver Stone. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XO-Y8wNwbuA http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gM6RqlnTryA The Documentary focus largely on United States Political History from World War II right up to the ongoing War on Terror. It focuses largely on the "distorted" aspects of American History that is warped into a mythology of sorts like the justification of the Atomic Bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki among many controversial undertakings of the United States in the past 70/80 years. There is no Conspiracy rubbish, it is all well sourced and highly accurate Oliver Stone worked along side Historian Peter Kuznick on this project since the late 1990's on sourcing material for it and production took 4 years. Their is also a book that accompanies the series by Oliver Stone and Historian Peter Kuznick which goes into more detail than the Documentary and starts earlier in the late 19th century. I cannot recommend this series enough. If you enjoy History it is well worth a look into.

    Although I guess it can't be helped, I hate the current trend of games getting shorter as graphics capabilities increase. Games like the uncharted series look absolutely beautiful but they're soooo short. So much effort needs to be put into modelling nowadays, every flower model needs to be near photo-realistic, every floor has scratches and cracks...that it means that developers have no option but to cut down the amount of unique environments they put in their games. It's the main reason Square have given for never making the FF7 remake. There's simply too many environments to be able to make on the ps3, a ps1 game is too big to make these days. This is what worries me about the next generation of consoles, the graphics are even more detailed. What effect is this going to have on the games?

    SEGA CS is complete BS. I had issues with the game (Episode 2) under iPhone 4 and they kept toying with me. First they made it sound like it was a problem on my side. Suggested me to redownload, close app, turn off, hard reset, etc. Came back and told them none of them worked. As soon as I did, they magically found out there was an issue with the game under iPhone 4. But an update will come out soon, so don't worry, right? Oh, the update adds some advertisements. DID IT FIX YOUR GAME? no "Go get a refund" thx saga But yeah, SEGA is pretty crappy at getting fixes out.

    I think Zero Mission did it right. I also don't like the recent focus on the so-called importance of "social gaming" and how many games focus too much on online multiplayer. Firstly, how about actually giving us a game with a great and lengthy single player as the primary focus of the game? give me a reason to give a fuck about the characters, let me enjoy the gameplay by myself AND THEN I'll decide if it's something I want to share with friends. Also, think about things in the long run, 20 years from now and I'm still playing games like SMB3 and ALttP and I can see myself even playing games like Metroid Primes 20 years from now as well because of how great they are without depending on others. Games that focus online? As good as they are, playing them 20 years from now is totally dependent on if others are playing too and if the servers are even still open. Also, the mentality that online is the only thing worthwhile in games nowadays is annoying, as well as people complaining that there is no online. Like, maybe it'd be better, but honestly, single player comes first. If sacrificing online means more time for a better single player, then so be it.

    The blow up the trash in 30 seconds missions in Mario Galaxy. They feel like something that would be in some shovelware game designed by idiots. There's only 2 of them in the game, but withas high quality as the game as a whole is, those two shitstains really stand out.

    It's there for the people that want it. I posted this in a status update, but nobody is making you buy it. Believe it or not, there are people out there that own 3DS systems and probably haven't played Sonic in years, and they'll discover this and will be stoked about it. I'm willing to bet that that's happened with a lot of the different re-releases. And they'll most likely release the other games as well, you know.
