    Badnik Mechanic got a reaction from Indigo Rush in Behaviour on Trains   
    As someone who has started to take a great deal of trains lately... one thing that they should outright ban on trains would be the following.

    Drunks and Alcohol.

    I cannot get on a train anymore without some drunk guy causing havoc, or the worst thing, a group of drunks getting on and causing lots of disruption on board. It doesn't even matter the time of the day anymore, it seems that at any time of the day theres some drunk on board or a bunch of guys boozing and gradually getting louder as the trip goes on.

    It's not just the fact that they're noisy, it comes off as being very aggressive and often you see drunks fighting with one another on trains. But the staff on board notify the transport police at the next stop... they get on... drunks get off, they get a warning, transport police get back on board.... low and behold... the train is now delayed and potential connections are missed.

    Given how much security airports have these days, the security on and at trainstations (even the very highly populated ones) is a complete and utter joke. The only exception to this would be Kings Cross London... if the PM's train is approaching, which one day I was there when it arrived and my God you couldn't fart for security staff.



    If I was that business man I would have slapped you around the head if I saw you doing that. Someone gives you an evil so you pour coffee on his seat and ruin his suit. Grow the fuck up.



    What? He said that... and not one person said anything? Where was this train going, because if the people there are that much of a pushover I intend to go and explot them for all they're worth.

    Badnik Mechanic reacted to BaronSFel001 in Abortion   
    How do you know this with absolute certainty? Unless you think all morality is relative, then there would have to be certain presuppositions that can stand critical analysis. In that case, I say go with what makes the most sense, but is also the most consistent - and the Bible fits that bill. Even if you disbelieve the Bible (by the way, I only brought it up because of association - my argument against abortion actually has nothing to do with Christianity whatsoever), in the name of human decency, could you consider all the facts before making a life-or-death decision?

    Again, my argument does not come from the Bible, but I can easily draw from the Bible. It is the most basic argument: murder is wrong, abortion is murder, therefore abortion is wrong. The only way you can justify abortion is by attacking the second line, and you cannot win against truth.

    This may go a little off-topic, but how could you not associate the Biblical banning of theft as not covering internet piracy as well? If every possible offense past, present, and future were addressed in the Bible, readers would be overwhelmed. The point is to draw the general principle, maintaining that delicate balance between amorality and legalism.

    That is muddying the issue by making poor analogies (Miko is doing a wonderful job of explaining why, so I will not repeat it here). Try again.

    The problem I have with that is that it is woefully subjective. How does one know one is right without absolute standards to base decisions on?

    So majority makes right? Forgive me if I decide to have a problem with that.

    I would bet my life that science has no way of determining that with reasonable certainty (of course science is incapable of absolute certainty, so we have to be reasonable about it). Again, Miko explains very well what the issue is with this.

    Something that ticks me off no end is when people get away with pulling off abortions at this point as well. The law is proving somewhat impotent. How many people a year are convicted of murder by killing a late term fetus? I have not personally heard of one, even though I know full well that they go on.

    You are being unreasonable by saying that if the Bible does not specifically mention a particular offense (or form of an offense) than it is considered condoned. The way I see it, God gave humans a reasoning process, and as such His Word does not have to read like a chatterbox. You are reaching on this argument big-time.

    I have no idea where you got these total lies. Jesus conformed to the law and even raised the written standards a bit. He did have a problem with the "religious" authorities of the day, since they were both legalistic and hypocrtical, oppressing the people for the sake of their own power trip. And wherever you read that His father was a Rabbi was certainly not in the Bible, which directly states that while God is the true Father of Jesus, his father on Earth was the carpenter Joseph.

    You cannot equate animal life with human life, so do not even try that with me.

    Again, you are assuming the worst. And this is propogated so much that it is little wonder why abortion is so common - women feel they do not have much of a choice because they are given all these scare tactics. Your "compassion" falls way flat.

    That is true of all human life ever since Adam and Eve infracted. The point is that humans are incapable of saving themselves, so God provided a ticket out of hell with Jesus. Does the phrase "nobody's perfect" sound familiar?

    I think there are too many who do not even bother trying. These people need support of friends and family throughout the entire episode, not a message that the only reasonable way to get rid of the pain is to get rid of the life.

    Straw man tactics are cold and low. If you are a reasonable person, you know full well that it is not the sort of message I mean to send. You talk about the healing of wounds - by creating another one? Something seriously flawed in that reasoning.

    Your concern for my well-being is touching, but your straw man wording is not. And again, you assume the worst, that every time the mother looks into the face of her child she sees her rapist. You assume the worst about humanity if you think that is the regular case. Did I mention that less than 2% (or is it 3%) of abortions are performed because of rape?

    I have no wish to condemn, but to encourage. I like to think that people are capable of much more strength than they feel they are. They just need to be supported positively rather than negatively, and they most certainly should not be left alone in these struggles.

    I knew you were not, but I just dislike being portrayed falsely (which you are still doing a little of). You and I do see eye-to-eye on one thing: blunt honesty is often the best way to get a point across.

    Badnik Mechanic reacted to Cortez in Mirror's Edge   
    I'm going to hope you're trolling here because if not... wow, just wow. Mirror's Edge, while not without its flaws, was next to MGS4 perhaps the best game out of 08 for me. I'm not going to go into details because nobody wants another un-paragraphed wall of text from me but seriously, how can you complain the game was £40 when SEGA sold Unleashed, 06 and ShTH for the same price, madness.

    Badnik Mechanic got a reaction from Sinister-the-luck-dragon in Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing   
    Well now...

    Now looks like a good as time as any to post my views on the build I played at Summer of Sonic 2009... Why now? Well I went on holiday the day after... ever since then been to bored to do it.

    I was racing against a random boy, I picked Sonic... he picked... beat... I think... or was it Amy? Anyway...

    We played the beach level, because it looked nice, and I knew where there was a shortcut. I took the lead quite early on and the kid made this disappointment noise, however the representative at the time told him Don't worry, you'll catch him up my ears pricked up at that remark... hmmm was this a deliberate design idea... I would find out that it was.

    The game seems to have an elastic band style mechanic, no matter how far ahead you get, the AI will ALWAYS find a way to catch you up. No matter what you do.

    Also, until you learn to master the drifting move, which is not an easy thing to do, you will find it very hard to win races. Oh yes you'll win, but it won't be easy. Not by a long shot.

    Not sure if it was just the difficulty, but I noticed that a number of the enemy AI characters would always go for a said power up, this wasn't really a bad thing, but it did make me wonder if many races would eventually see a pattern to AI behaviour if they were instructed to always pick up a said item?

    The items themselves are fun and what you expect from a kart type game, some have a little twist, like one missile type bounces off the walls, it usually catches an AI opponent... human? That remains to be seen. But all seem to be themed on some kind of Sega game object which is cool.

    Graphics... Yes. It has them.

    ...The level was very beautifully detailed, couldn't blame or fault them for their design, it was a lovely level with lots of detail and colour. Each character can be easily identified during a race, so yes... it has graphics.

    Superstar moves... I'm in two minds about them, it's great that they're there, a special move is a cool feature... but the problem I had is that they would occur far too often/a player could get one very easily with little effort. This will make it hell for a lot of online games. The reason being is that some superstar moves are much more useful than others.

    For instance, Sonic's Superstar move is to get a huge speed boost, immortal to attacks/traps, and can barge other racers out of the way forcing them to slow down...... the speed can increase depending how fast a player presses a said button repeatedly.

    Amy's special move... she smacks her hammer to the left, then right... then left... then right...

    It's a great move... if... you have enemies at either side of you... this very rarely happens. It will certainly do very little to help you catch a leader. It's a defensive move if anything.

    Beats move, he sprays the opponents screen green... Not sure what this will do to AI players, but for humans it may cause problems. However, on the day the rep said that it wasn't finalised and would be getting changed.

    In my opinion, if these superstar moves are so varied in their ability to give you an advantage, I should not be able to get 1/2 of them per lap. Otherwise people who pick Sonic are going to have a big advantage.

    But... despite a few gripes I had, the game was very very fun. It's not going to be a classic that’s remembered for years, nor do I think it'll outshine Mario Kart, but it's really fun. Very easy to pick up and play (once you master the drift). It looks lovely. Lots of power ups and characters, it's pretty much what you want from a good quality party racing game.

    1970's trousers mode.

    Yes... 1970's trousers mode.

    After the race, the rep asked if either myself or the boy, had any comments/suggestions. I then said... "Yes I have one, and it's not a character request" To which the rep said "OH! Really!?" (I don't think he was expecting that).

    I then said... I think that after you have completed the game with all the default characters... you should unlock 1970's trousers mode..." There was a brief pause as the rep looked like I had just told him I was the fairy godmother. I then said "Basically, when you complete the game with all the characters, you can play the game in 1970's trousers mode, all the characters wear 1970's trousers, and the cars are decorated in 1970's markings and faded 60's peace signs. It'll be brilliant because it's a very colourful game and people will continue to play because 1970's trousers mode will be something that nobody will have ever seen before and nobody will want to say "I didn't unlock 1970's trousers mode!"

    The rep paused again, then he chuckled and said.

    "It's certainly a new idea... I'll pitch it to the dev team next time I see them, if only to see their reaction when I tell them that they have to put all the characters in 1970's trousers!"

    So there we have it folks, 1970's trousers mode may just happen if there’s a demand... so demand it! NOW! At all the feedback opportunities demand your 1970's trousers mode! Just think, 1970's trousers today! Tomorrow, 80's shell suit mode!

    We shall win this console war... with leg warmers! Who does not want to see Nights in leg warmers?

    Badnik Mechanic got a reaction from Burns in Cream   
    One day I will do that character study of Cream like I did with Big and Amy.

    One thing about Cream that is interesting from a literary point, is that unlike most of the other characters, Cream, because of her age, sees everything in it's most simple form. Because of this, she is able to influence characters to always pick the 'right' choice.

    Not just acting because they want a restoration of what they see as being right, but she always seems to have this nack of getting other characters to do what they should as apposed to what they want.

    As for Cream being annoying... she's a young child under 10... of course she's going to be annoying!

    Badnik Mechanic reacted to eXtaticus in A Discovery in Sonic Unleashed   
    The entire game is just blatant proof that Sonic Team isn't clever at all; the fact that they created a game as bad as Sonic Unleashed in the first place gives them the instant status of "total idiots".

    Seriously, they should rename themselves to "Puyo Team", or "NiGHTS Team", and give up on making Sonic games altogether - leave that job to a decent branch of SEGA, such as AM2 or Smilebit!

    But I don't think you quite get it... nobody is going to care. Really they won't. If someone has a huge catalogue of PS2 games, then chances are they'll have a working PS2. So if they already own a console and a game that they love... why would they re-buy it anyway?

    Like I said, if they do start putting PS2 games on the PSN, most PS3 owners will be very happy about that. I really do struggle to even try to comprehend a scenario were PS3 owners will dislike that decision, especially since if you read a lot of the comments about what most people want on the PS3, PS2 games on the PSN/backwards compatability is probably second only to cross game voice chat.

    You also asked in the topic description, how will the industry react, if anything they'll be happy about this move too. Look how many third party companies have already taken full advantage of various other consoles and their 'classic' titles being up for download.

    If I really try, the only negative thing I can probably think of is that some people may need to find the cash for a bigger HD-Drive, even then it'll only be those who constantly buy full PS2 games on a very regular basis.



    But you can still buy PS2's. Even if PS2 games appear on the PSN, they're not suddenly going to shut down the hardware aspect if it's still selling very well.

    Badnik Mechanic reacted to Tornado in Let's say Sony does start selling PS2 games on PSN   
    So after two years of Sony saying "Our customers don't want this" and "we removed it intentionally because we don't want you playing PS2 games on your PS3," Sony simply changing their tune to "Our customers want this so badly that we might as well charge them for it" won't have any negative response? You're right, I can in no way see why people could have a problem with that; just like they had no problems when Sony said with a straight face that people don't want rumble functionality (yes, I understand the circumstances were different for that particular fiasco).


    Since the news leaked, what you are describing has been the exact opposite of how people seem to be reacting, so I imagine most PS3 owners will not, in fact, be okay with that as the only option; other than for certain games.


    By "industry," I meant overall. Not just the publishers.


    That doesn't really apply. It would if we were in 2007 and you could buy both the 80Gb model if you wanted BC and the 40Gb model if you didn't, but its 2009, so you have to buy a completely different system now.

    I really don't think that the Sony userbase will suddenly throw their arms up in the air and go "Oh the hypocrisy! I shall not buy anything else from them again!" *stands on a mountain like mozes.*

    Good lord, I mean come on guys, you couldn't sound anymore like the dude at the air who has the board that says "The end is nigh"

    Considering how so many people want a method of playing PS2 games on their PS3's, it doesn't really seem like it's a move to shoot themselves in the foot in all honesty. All the other companies are putting their back catalogue of games onto their respected online stores, so why is it that if Sony does it it spells doom and gloom? Or is it that we're just after something new to moan at sony about?

    But I don't think you quite get it... nobody is going to care. Really they won't. If someone has a huge catalogue of PS2 games, then chances are they'll have a working PS2. So if they already own a console and a game that they love... why would they re-buy it anyway?

    Like I said, if they do start putting PS2 games on the PSN, most PS3 owners will be very happy about that. I really do struggle to even try to comprehend a scenario were PS3 owners will dislike that decision, especially since if you read a lot of the comments about what most people want on the PS3, PS2 games on the PSN/backwards compatability is probably second only to cross game voice chat.

    You also asked in the topic description, how will the industry react, if anything they'll be happy about this move too. Look how many third party companies have already taken full advantage of various other consoles and their 'classic' titles being up for download.

    If I really try, the only negative thing I can probably think of is that some people may need to find the cash for a bigger HD-Drive, even then it'll only be those who constantly buy full PS2 games on a very regular basis.



    But you can still buy PS2's. Even if PS2 games appear on the PSN, they're not suddenly going to shut down the hardware aspect if it's still selling very well.

    Badnik Mechanic got a reaction from Burns in SEGA Republic site is up with Robotnik's SPINGEAR   
    "Keep your arms and PINGAS inside the car at all times"



    Actually, given the development stratergy of Dubai, I would imagine that the government actually paid a shocking high level of money to pay for the park, and will then charge an arm and a leg for the rent a few years down the line. But since how Dubai is an extremely expensive place to visit, they will see a return very quickly on this investment.

    I doubt Sega could have built this in America or anywhere else in the west as they would find it very difficult to cover both the construction and the build costs, however, Dubais development stratergy is to often pay for the product, then charge the owner very high rent to opperate it in Dubai.
