I'm definitely not Brian Kilby.

Taco Bell has proven to me that god is truly dead.

I'm familiar with him but I still don't get the joke.

Aw, you ruined it.

@  tffan01 : (24 May 2016 - 07:58 AM)

@robowang, I would have laughed at the joke if I knew who is Brian Kilby

@  Benbot : (24 May 2016 - 07:48 AM)

Everyone quickly say something so it scrolls down

@  Robowang : (24 May 2016 - 07:48 AM)

I love this board. I'm still convinced you're all Brian Kilby.

@  tffan01 : (24 May 2016 - 07:47 AM)

beetleman, if you read this I'm not saying this as a fact, it's just a thought.

@  Robowang : (24 May 2016 - 07:42 AM)

*Beetleman logs on and reads this*

@  tffan01 : (24 May 2016 - 07:40 AM)

I think beetleman might have a mental disability of some sorts. I'm not saying he definitely has but if he really does, you guys should be a little kinder to him. That would also explain why he says he is a 19 year old but his parents are overprotective. I'm not saying he definitely has but it's a possibility. Or he's just a 8 year old that says he is an adult.

@  Touch My Thighs : (24 May 2016 - 05:00 AM)

No need to ban him, just remove his ability to post new topics. Problem solved.

@  Msol : (24 May 2016 - 01:01 AM)

So what's the over/under for when beetleman is banned?

@  Telly : (24 May 2016 - 12:26 AM)

is the christmas/holiday special in the latest mtmte trade? or atleast mtmte's segment of that comic

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 May 2016 - 05:12 PM)

He tried to introduce himself once, but then he was compelled to kidnap himself and nobody's seen him since.

@  Paladin : (23 May 2016 - 04:53 PM)

wait, what about Candlejac

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 May 2016 - 04:45 PM)

All legends are true, except for the ones that aren't.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (23 May 2016 - 04:39 PM)

The Nightitme Secret Aardvark exists?! I though it was just a legend!

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 May 2016 - 04:28 PM)

Well, maybe. That depends on you, really. What you do behind closed doors is none of my business. I'm not the NSA.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (23 May 2016 - 04:24 PM)

Your nights shall be completely shame-free, however.

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 May 2016 - 04:16 PM)

Nope. You will bear the shame of this for all of your days.

@  Telly : (23 May 2016 - 04:00 PM)

Xbox 360 Getting New Disc Format

From IGN

QUOTE
Microsoft is beginning a new public preview for Xbox 360 users as they prepare for an updated Xbox 360 disc format.

Xbox Live Director of Programming Larry Hryb made the announcement this morning through his Major Nelson blog. "This is an important update as we continually strive to improve our products and we could not do so without the help of our great Xbox community," Hryb wrote. "As part of the preview program, you will receive a copy of Halo: Reach along with other possible rewards."

Due to disc distribution, this preview is only available to U.S. residents. Users can head over to the official Xbox Live website to register. It's unclear at this time what the update will mean for Xbox 360 software going forward. Hryb told IGN in a separate e-mail this is not an update to Blu-ray discs, but could not provide any additional details at this time.


So is HD-DVD coming back? Some super high capacity DVDs? Will this be an optional add on like the HDDVD player? Any guesses by some one more informed in the industry would be helpful.

Basically, the rumor is that ~1.15GB of a standard 7.95 GB DVD is dedicated to copy protection on the 360: this new "format" is basically a dashboard update that allows some or all of that 1.15GB to be used for game data instead, potentially increasing the amount of crap you can cram onto a 360 DVD by almost 17%.

So, it's not a new format, but more of a relaxing of a standard?

Well, hopefully it is simply the aforementioned update that allows more of the existing DVD to be used for game content rather than all that copy protection (and wow, is that a lot of copy protection data, lol). That sounds a much more appealing prospect for existing customers than purchasing a hardware update, when a lot of them have probably just recently spent quite a bit on Kinect.

If its what joystiq said, then that makes me happy. I don't feel like buying an add on right now.

Blu-Ray rights are owned by a association of like nearly 80 companies, of which there are just under twenty on the Board of Directors, one of which is Sony: http://en.wikipedia....isc_Association

It would cost Microsoft a mere $20,000 a year to get into this Association and most likely not a big difficulty to get voted onto the Board of Directors, thus giving them an equal vote to Sony.

Ricardo is a fan of the deep cuts. His only other post is to revive a thread from Jan 2011.
