WHICH 2016 clown panic?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (28 February 2021 - 07:22 AM)

Didn't that come right after the 2016 clown panic? No way to make clowns not disturbing at the time, surely.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (28 February 2021 - 04:26 AM)

The clown guise is supposed to lure kids in, it's no good if it looks sus in one glance.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (28 February 2021 - 04:15 AM)

The new one tries too hard to be unsettling from the start. Curry's look is just a plain old clown, until he very much is not.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (28 February 2021 - 04:14 AM)

And Curry has a far more disturbing look at times than the newbie.

@  Sabrblade : (28 February 2021 - 02:22 AM)

And the original was a showcase of Tim Curry's delightfulness as an actor. 'Nuff said.

It just depends on what it is. It is preferable to take it to P&R though. But sometimes current news as it's happening is less restrictive.

@  fourteenwings : (24 February 2021 - 12:18 AM)

Huh, good point (x3)

@  ▲ndrusi : (23 February 2021 - 11:46 AM)

Yeah. 1. People treat it like Twitter. 2. There's no "take it to P&R" since there's no P&R for the Shoutbox. 3. There's similarly no way to avoid either subjects or people in the Shoutbox since there's no division and it doesn't respect the ignore function, so people end up engaging when they normally wouldn't.

@  fourteenwings : (23 February 2021 - 10:56 AM)

Is there something about the Shoutbox that just means we get politics taking over the thing at least once a week?

@  wonko the sane? : (23 February 2021 - 08:26 AM)

At least your government is willing to talk about the collapsing medicare system. In quebec, their ignoring it in favour of talking about language again! Oh, and unconstitutionally denying access to eduction.

@  Shockwave 75 : (23 February 2021 - 07:52 AM)

At least here in my home province of Ontario we have a conservative gov't who doesn't want to cuz $$$$, but the argument is that they'll end up paying in medical care anyways for those sick people so why not?

@  Shockwave 75 : (23 February 2021 - 07:51 AM)

We have paid sick leave here in Canada too, but it's not very much and not everyone has it. So we're trying to get the gov't to extend it, and give it to everyone.

@  Nevermore : (23 February 2021 - 02:23 AM)

The only reason people still go to work despite being sick is because they feel emotionally obliged to serve their employer.

@  Nevermore : (23 February 2021 - 02:20 AM)

Some people abuse the system by somehow getting sick with a different plague every five weeks.

@  Nevermore : (23 February 2021 - 02:20 AM)

Those six weeks are out of the employer's pocket by legal mandate. If you're still sick after those six weeks, the health insurance company takes over the payment.

@  Nevermore : (23 February 2021 - 02:19 AM)

That's the good thing in Germany - we have legally mandated paid sick days. Six weeks (!) for a single cause (consecutive or recurring, as long as it's the same cause; reinfections long after the fact don't count), Everytime the employee gets sick with a new cause, another six weeks start.

@  tigerhawk : (22 February 2021 - 04:48 PM)

That's how my family got sick, my brothers a teacher, he has a class for expelled students, they gave full attendance these past few lockdowns out of sheer boredom, they can turn in sick and break isolation and he nor the other staff, who also got sick, couldn't do anything about it.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 February 2021 - 03:03 PM)

Yeah, pretty sure the only reason people don't stay home when they're sick is that the vast majority of society lives paycheque to paycheque, and they can't afford even one missed day of work.

@  -LittleAutob... : (22 February 2021 - 11:27 AM)

That's unfortunate... I know masks can be annoying, but I think not being able to breath comfortably for a while is better than actually having the virus and not being able to breath at all. bUt Oh, pEoPLe dOn'T bELiVe ThE dAmN vIrUs Is rEaL

@  wonko the sane? : (22 February 2021 - 08:28 AM)

Hahahaha! Oh, you're serious. Yeah, no one is going to do that. Far too many are in positions where they simply cannot afford the time off, and most of the rest are the kind who won't wear the mask in a global pandemic, never mind when they alone have the sniffles.

@  Shockwave 75 : (22 February 2021 - 08:20 AM)

I just hope a take-away from this will be for people to stay home when they're sick, and if they have to go out, wear a mask so as not to spread their illness.

@  TM2-Megatron : (21 February 2021 - 08:25 PM)

I think it's mostly the masking that's kept the flu season down so much, and that's unlikely to be kept up for that long. I'm sure there'll be some people who keep wearing masks for years after this, but I suspect a larger number are anticipating people able to toss them once vaccinations are complete.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 February 2021 - 05:27 PM)

Same in canada. Doctors report it to be basically non-existant. I kinda hope they keep some stuff up after everyone is vaccinated. Like hand sanitizer at store entrances, and actually cleaning the shopping carts.

@  tigerhawk : (21 February 2021 - 05:17 PM)

On the plus side cold and flu cases are down 80% this winter thanks to lockdowns, or at least that's the case in the UK.

@  Hg Dragon : (21 February 2021 - 04:37 PM)

This is quite possibly the most miserable i have ever felt.

@  Sabrblade : (15 February 2021 - 12:04 PM)

Heh, that new Binaltech comic that Ichikawa wrote for one of the Japanese Generations books even had the other Dinobots make fun of Grimlock for his "Autobot Car" body.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 February 2021 - 12:03 PM)

They got that rescue bot grimlock that turns into a motorcycle. That's... pretty neat...

@  Otaku : (15 February 2021 - 11:35 AM)

Just to make Grimlock feel more "wrong", they even highlight how his character just seems ill-suited for a sports car alternate mode in his own backstory.  Hindsight is 20/20, so I now wish they'd made a T-rex that transformed into a sportscar.  Still probably would have been as much or more of a pain to transform, but at least it'd feel more like Grimlock. :D

What Sony really needs to show us is how they're going to capitalize
on the momentum that they're starting to build on both the PSP and
the PS3... I expect quite a bit of Blu-Ray talk and how great they did
with that... We should see Killzone 2 and God of War 3 in some form
or another.

The biggest thing is that they need to date some of their bigger games
and actually get them into the hands of consumers. We need to know
when HOME, Little Big Planet and other things that will see consoles
are actually going to be able to be played. For too long they've been
talking about how wonderful everything will be and telling us to just
wait for it, now they really need to tell us when everything will be out.

I'm not expecting much from Killzone 2. Much like Killzone 1, it's a lot of hype with very little underneath it--Resistance 2 is the real shooter to be watching out for on PS3.

And unless Sony gets Home out the door now--like TODAY now--it's kinda old news, considering the 360 may beat them to the punch.

QUOTE(Jack Tretton)
Little Big Planet is the first game to combine user-generated content, social networking, and gaming.

Only if they beat Spore to retail.

And then go back in time and erase Halo 3 from existance.

QUOTE(Jack Tretton)
Playstaton 3 online has no hidden fees.

Except for that online magazine thing that they're using to charge for demos.

I wanna play Resistance 2, DC universe has me drooling...it s gonna be a good year for me and games.

I didn't pay much attention during this, my reaction for Massive Action Game was "Oh, it's a war game." but I don't really know what I expected.

And they announced a Resistance game for the PSP. I don't own a PS3 but from what I've seen I like Resistance the most out of the current FPS out now.

Screw you, FFXIII.

But in the current, digitized world, trivial information is accumulating every second, preserved in all its triteness. Never fading, always accessible. Rumors about petty issues, misinterpretations, slander... All this junk data preserved in an unfiltered state, growing at an alarming rate. It will only slow down social progress, reduce the rate of evolution. You seem to think that our plan is one of censorship. What we propose to do is not to control content, but to create context.

So... uh...

Bad news that slipped through the cracks: Sony is dropping backwards-compatibility on the PS3 altogether. The capacity upgrade from 40 to 80 kills the last backwards-compatible PS3 on shelves.

Too much talk about bluray and movie downloads, but I must say Resistance 2 looks rather impressive, and while it's a shooter, I might just check it out, just for the Kaiju scale bosses. It's always nice to see more LBP footage as well.

I'm kinda pissed I'm going to have to buy a second-hand non-gimped PS3 when I finally take the plunge.

They should've added the emotion chip back in since they cut costs instead of killing it entirely.

What the heck is Sony's problem? Out of all three consoles, the PS3 is the one that would benefit the most from backwards compatibility. The PS2 is still selling ridiculously well, considering how it's already last-gen, and its top titles still beat the pants off of the best of the PS3 library right now.

I've known people who owned a Wii and didn't even realize it was backwards compatible with GameCube. They didn't even care, because it was GameCube. The PS2 is still relevant.

Oh well, being able to download TV and movies onto my PSP is cool. Too bad I'm already happy with just ripping the DVDs I already own....

I think you answered your own question.

It's stupid and short-sighted, but I think they're saying, "hey, we'll just keep selling PS2s, which don't lose money and which we don't have to pay to market."

Which may be true, but it means their flagship PS3 sales suffer, and Blu-Ray gets fewer new adopters as well. It's one less reason for someone to upgrade.

Actually, I have never heard that many people talk about KH3 being a PS3 exclusive. I was under the impression that the title is considered/rumored widely to be a multiplatform release.
