TBH that guy in the phantom of the opera mask and the blue rose was pushing it. Hmm, the Wings aren't the main bad guys? Now I'm intrigued.

I was confused about that scene in russian where they meet the little girl who is actually gregory? And then saya says she is going to sleep. Did that happen in the past or present because it wasn't really made clear. I hoped that the Chiropterans were naturally occuring monsters that were as old as time. But they seem to be headed down the science gone wrong route.

Disaster : Day of Crisis Japanese boxart

The Grigory part is in the past (191Cool , He is based on Grigory Rasputin. I can explain more, but that would be spoiling things.

About Disaster, I think the rumour that it was delayed because of the June China quake are true.

Wow, 360 defect rate was 68% and Microsoft knew about it pre-launch and still went ahead. I got to say that kinda pisses me off.

I think you've misinterpreted that.  There was initially a 68% yield rate from production (68% of units off the line didn't work at all).  Not that that's any better given the initial failure rate was technically 100%.

Yeah it's weird. I still find it weird seeing all the americans speak in japanese too. It's easier if everyone speaks english but in an accent for me.

No, no, no hearing people talk with a fake accent is horrible.

What's more, the initial yield on the three-core CPU designed by IBM for the next-generation console was just 16 per cent.

That's all according to a report by VentureBeat's Dean Takahashi, author of the console's unofficial biography, of sorts, Xbox 360 Uncloaked, who attributed the numbers to "several sources".

In his article Xbox 360 defects: an inside history of Microsoft's videogame console woes, Takahashi also wrote that during meetings to outline the Xbox 360 project, "Secretly, Microsoft had planned on selling 50 million Xbox 360s".

Later on, Takahashi's sources claim that Microsoft was well aware of the massive defect rate (although entertainment division boss Robbie Bach has subsequently denied there was any concern about it at the time) and chose to press on with the console's launch anyway.

Over 1.2 million consoles were returned by early 2007, he wrote, and eventually Microsoft announced a free replacement service as it got its head around the problem.

"It turned out in the end that this was all going too far, too fast," said one source quoted by Takahashi. "They were adding too many features after things were locked down. That incremental feature adding just made it fragile."

Microsoft also took ownership of the ATI and IBM chip designs at the heart of the console. "However," Takahashi pointed out, "this was a mistake: it was now responsible for failures related to the chip." Yeah - oops.

The result of all the failures was, initially, a "bone pile" in a warehouse at manufacturer Wistron and a repair centre in Texas of over 500,000 consoles that either didn't work to begin with or broke quickly. All the while we were being told failures were within "normal rates for consumer electronics products".

Later, between January and June 2007, Microsoft even shut down manufacturing, according to Takahashi, in order to investigate.

Yet for all this, Takahashi reported that Robbie Bach told fellow diners at some sort of technology banquet in July that gamers have largely forgiven the company for the defectives 360s.

For Microsoft's part, it said: "This new story repeats old information, and contains rumors and innuendo from anonymous sources, attempting to create a new sensational angle, and is highly irresponsible."

LMAO.....I have 3 consoles in that "bone pile". Needless to say, I won't be buying Microsoft's next console anywhere NEAR launch...if at all. I've nearly completely switched over to PS3 at this point actually, now that multi-platform games have improved. Other than exclusives.

What do you mean? Because of the bridge option? It's just a wireless router like the ones I already have, but branded from the look of it.

Yodariquo, the currency symbols viewing the site in IE persist. Several of the updates read as th&%s.

Huzzah, watched the episode set in france, learning about Haji. Interesting. One thing that I found funny/annoying was that at the end of one episode there was this cliffhanger scene. Then in the beggining of the next episode they did a mini recap of the last scene...

And the translation was different!

And then there are the usual Diva becomes the Songtress. Wings become Chiropterans, who become The Opponents.

And who the hell are the Chevaliers? Haji is one? What?

Maybe that's why the PS3 is outselling the 360 now, they've fixed the problem.

I can't control the input characters (ok, well, if I wanted).  Anything that isn't posted as Western European / Latin characters will display unusually if your personal settings aren't for UTF-8, just like Kanji characters won't display if you don't have East Asian character sets installed.

To change your encoding settings, choose View (or in newer versions Page) and Encoding from the menu.  Then choose UTF-8 or Unicode.

I think the IE8 BETA 2 automatically detects the character set, but I'm not sure.

It can't be right? It's a wireless router? Unless it's some bizaare scheme to wirelessly hook up to your existing PC and stream content from the HDD on your desktop. But........ no

To change your encoding settings, choose View (or in newer versions Page) and Encoding from the menu.  Then choose UTF-8 or Unicode.

I think the IE8 BETA 2 automatically detects the character set, but I'm not sure.

You see, I'm stupid enough to not know what any of that means. Grinning I just started a CSS course, though my tutor is self taught. Doing ordered lists and block quotes and crap at the moment.

Oh yeah your Shadow of the Colossus review. Good stuff. Do you think that Kizuna is ripping off SOTC?

Man that star wars force unleashed wii video looks kinda crappy. Poor framerate, blocky characters and a weird camera.

GG. Look to my latest Virtual Console Update for a "fix" for your VC HD related issues.
