Speaking of Shenmue, I was playing "Die Hard Arcade" for the Saturn and I noticed it had the "Tap Punch Button Now!" type action sequences. Was this the first 3-D game to have this sort of thing?

I know "Sword of the Beserk: Gutsrage" for Dreamcast also had a bit of this (after DHA).

Hey Gohan, what would you say if my hair is turning blond(and extremely long) all of a sudden!) http://www.jediknight.net/mboard/biggrin.gif
Besides, I still have my DC and my Saturn, I will keep playing with them untill the day they collapse! I always have and always will be loyal to Sega!(even if they stop making consoles)

ah sorry guys this subject was meant for the starfighter forum, I closed the window quickly when I noticed it was in the BFN forum, and had hoped it would cancel it's self, it did not...

now for the rest,
Dave: what the hell was that? :|
Pedro: look the name was a mistake, when I first got AOL, I liked SW and DBZ, so anyways when I signed up for this forum, or the JPB forum, I though our names had to be the same as our AOL name, I was mistaken.

And Kurgan, I thought it was quite clear I was not a DC fan http://www.jediknight.net/mboard/smile.gif just like it's quite clear you all are not a PS2 fan, but thanks for stating the obvious once again http://www.jediknight.net/mboard/wink.gif

OOPS! Sorry, I was wrong, you can't alter your name. You ofcourse can re-register yourself under a new name.(but let everyone know. So we won't think that you are just another newbie http://www.jediknight.net/mboard/wink.gif)

Hey Does anyone have a near bottomless pit with shaft at the bottom at the ready for me. I want to make a Luke Like exit. However, ruling the galaxy with Jedi SuperBuen???? Sounds nice, I'll think about it. But keep that pit at the ready, I might still choose fot the light side. http://www.jediknight.net/mboard/biggrin.gif

Pedro: How about 9$ and a Chewie Pez dispenser?

Boba Rhett: *Snaps open a can of Pepsi and fills a glass*

First you have to sign here, here, here and here, as well as your initials here and here. Keep in mind that I am not responsible for any dismemberment or damage cause to but not limited to yourself or your family/loved ones. By joining the Dark Side you agree to only wear black and have a red lightsaber. Having wrinkles and a cane is a bonus and will be payed accordingly. You get extra credits for dissing any Death Projects we have as well as chopping any family members' arms.

How will Aspartame hurt you?

I know for PK's phenylalanine can be bad (since they are essentially born allergic to the substance), and saccharine has been shown to cause cancer in some laboratory animals, but what about Aspartame?

I know the deal is that it is a fat soluable substance: ie: you need to exercise it off, rather than piss (to put it in layman's terms) it out (ie: water soluable) like regular sugar.

And sugar can lead to tooth decay and putting on extra weight (as too much of just about anything except vitamin C can do anyway). Tell me if I'm wrong, but I haven't heard anything about apstartame causing cancer or anything else. If you have that kind of info to share, please do....

I've never heard of aspartane causing "cancel" either... Hahaah maybe that's what happened to Obi-Wan, he drank Diet Pepsi, lmao!!!

Boba Rhett: Muwhahahaha welcome to the Dark Side! Now we can rule the Galaxy!!! We need one more ally...

Pedro, *waves fingers in front of his face, using an old jedi mind trick* you will join us in the Dark Side... Wait a minute, you're a Hutt! awwwwww !@#$ my old !@#$%^ mind tricks won't work on your @$$... !@#$ !@#$ !@#!@$#@$@!~@#%#$@%#$%$#@^%$@%^%$@

aaaaahhhhh feel better, here 9$ and a Diet Pepsi, Welcome to the Dark Side, all we need now is for you to sign the same papers except with the difference that we are not responsible if Princesses in a metal thong choke you with a chain while your sail barge explodes...

So how is PSO? Is it just hack 'n' slash, kill everything and min-max? Or is there actual substance to it?

Is it better than EverCrack? ; p

I don't have time to write out all the stuff "yea right http://www.jediknight.net/mboard/wink.gif"
so I got you some links. I know from first hand experiance that it harms people but you can decide for yourself.

Oh, PSO is great, it revolves around teamwork, and you can't kill other players. And about the hack'n slash, it's not quite JPB if you know what I mean, it's more about rythm and timing to get a decent combo (never more then 3 hits). And I must admid that about 90% of the players are really friendly.

Kurgan

Rhett, if you could elaborate on your "first hand" experience, that would be interesting.

I found some links that seem to refute the claims in the ones you provided.

http://urbanlegends.about.com/science/urbanlegends/library/blasp.htm?terms=aspartame

http://www.nutrasweet.com/infocenter/consumer/otherssay/nsresponds.asp

http://www.fda.gov/bbs/topics/ANSWERS/ANS00772.html

http://caloriecontrol.org/response.html

http://web.mit.edu/newsoffice/tt/1998/sep16/aspartame.html

http://www.msfacts.org/aspartame.htm

I could post more, but that's probably sufficient to prove my point.

Apparently the issues these folks have with aspartame are heavily exaggerated and don't stand up to the evidence.

Kurgan

Boba Rhett
02-27-2001, 12:08 AM
That's why I said you have to draw your own conclusion. The first hand eperiance is that whenever I have anything containing aspartame a have horrible headaches and whenever my fathers does, he practically passes out for a day.

PSO is sweet.

The lag isn't noticable, and it really rewards teamplay. And unlike Diablo 2 online, 90% of the players I meet are very friendly. I've received so much help just over the past two days that my character is already getting strong!

Pedro The Hutt

Bleh. Dreamcast only failed beause they screwed up on marketing with the Sega Saturn.

While I am dissappointed with Sega's decision, I really don't care, seeing as I own both of them, and plan on getting a Gamecube and Xbox.

And PS2 isn't a whole lot better then Dreamcast. To be honest, I don't see a big difference between the two systems. And I am NOT a biased gamer... I can't be, since I'm opening a game reviewing site. =)

Ah, thanks Rhett, of course:

The first hand eperiance is that whenever I have anything containing aspartame a have horrible headaches and whenever my fathers does, he practically passes out for a day.

I can use something with aspartame in it and nothing like that happens to me at all. So what do you make of that?

Of course if something in the product is causing headaches it could be a number of things.. caffiene for example, or you could be allergic to the food coloring or other ingredients. It wouldn't have to be aspartame. I just think people assume it's this big scary nasty thing because of the hub ub over saccharine (not all sweeteners are created equal after all.. they're different chemicals).

If you feel better not using aspartame, fine, don't use it, and good for you. But without proof, you can't go around saying it's poison and there's a conspiracy to drop it in our water supply or whatever it is those folks on those websites you provided were trying to prove. ; p

But your dad passes out for a day? Are you sure he isn't mixing it with something stronger?

why do people enjoy comparing themselves to lab animals?

Diet anything will kill you.

I drink mountain dew, so i have nothing to worry about. I tried that sweet & whatever sugar and i can see why lab animals die from it! IT TASTES DISGUSTING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
