Well, 23. Wow. I mean.. I used to be so young. Now I'm freaking old. That's okay. You people still love me? I turned 23 on the 12th and have been so OLDNESSIFIED! This is SOOOO the oldness! Oh, yeah!
Philip is listening to: Boogiepop: Music Inspired by Boogiepop and Others. It's from Animetrax and it's the best Nu Jazz I've heard in a loooooong while. This may be one of my favorite albums ever. I mean.. it's just so.. varied and vibrant. It's emotional, it's tense, it's just so acoustically EVERWHERE. I mean.. the CD is brilliant.
Discovered Suki Nihon. Just needed to say that without a doubt, the Cowboy Bebop movie deserved Duke's rating. Awesome movie and have owned it since the day it came out on DVD. Keep 'em coming, boys. - BootsPhilip: Oh, yeah. Oh! I reviewed a HENTAI title for the 100th break point. For the 150th break point.. I'll review some Yaoi. I promise. So, if you feel like you should subject poor me to that.. keep the reviews coming!
woohoo! FL CL rocks! i get bored waititng till midnight. i want to watch Fuli Culi! - DarkmanPhilip: Ain't it though? I consider it to be one of those anime that you either love or hate. I LOVE IT THOUGH. It keeps the brain wrinkly.
Pretend you were a democrat in 2004. Dean or Lieberman? - Dem' BonesPhilip: Well, Dean wants to take away our gaming and anime buying money. In fact his campaign promise is to "remove the tax cuts that Bush placed." I don't know about you; but people that want to steal my money suck. Lieberman wants to put ratings on your games. Oh, wait. He already did that. He also wants to increase the amount of bandwidth for WiFi, HD Broadcasts, and Cable. Also, Lieberman may be the butt of many jokes here; but he's not actually bad for the industry. In the legislation battles that made him famous with America's gamers.. Liberman was fighting for a clear RATINGS system. Not banning or removing products from store shelves. KB Toys, Toys R Us, and other companies took it upon themselves to remove games from their shelves. So, I would say.. Lieberman.
Everyone neds to get Pinball of the Dead. NOW! Second best undead-killing pinball game EVER. - Admiral TailzPhilip: The Undead, large metal balls, how can you go wrong?

FLCL, is like Rocky Horror Picture show, it's normally great but it'w even better when you're high. - ShadyPhilip: Audience participation! *smacks you with a guitar* Okay! Let's drag him out to the street...
The following asinine attempt to justify his PSP bashing and his Nintendo bias, brought to you by Philip Andrew Wesley. Good guy, and an upright bloke, but a gent who can't seem to look beyond his silly bias.Philip: I see you have mastered the art of Copy/Paste; but not the art of writing your name in, IP#22.214.171.124; but I'll forgive you for that. Yes, if you read the bit you highlighted and pasted, you'll note that I said I was biased against 989 Studios. I dislike their sports titles in comparison to Electronic Arts. I also mentioned that I did print some rumors of GBA titles. I also said that our news coverage of the unit was fairly reserved. Now, the BBS, Chat Rooms, and Viral Speak are seperate from our news coverage. Why did we print GBA game rumors and have not printed any news on PSP game rumors? Next paragraph.
Nintendo announced 15 games were in development, the companies working on them, and did not give out the names of the games when they announced the full specs for the GBA. That leads to rumors and is pretty healthy. Sony has announced NO titles, NO game numbers, and NO developers. In fact, the developers I mentioned that could be making games for it ARE RUMORS. (The thing is more powerful than the PS2.. imagine what it could do with Gran Turismo. Admit it.. you like cars too.) The only developer/publisher that has signed on to the PSP officially is THQ. Sony did not even acknowledge the THQ press release. The other companies have yet to put out any press regarding developing games and the number of games. If Konami popped up and stated they were working on 3 games for the PSP, I would be happy to speculate on what those might be.I would be thrilled. I mean.. Silent Hill, and Metal Gear. Konami has a lot of franchise that insta-sell with me, such as Survival Kids and Castlevania. I never said the PSP was going to be bad; but when one of the largest publishing companies in the industry (THQ) says they do not expect it to compete on the same level or market as the Game Boy Advance, you have to take notice of that. I see the PSP debuting with a $150 to $200 price tag and selling pretty nicely; IF it has the games to back up it's other extravenous features. So far, nothing in terms of number of games expected has been announced. Also, none of the "movies" they want to push have been announced either.
I really do not care for movies on UMD. It has as much interest from me as the whole "Let's put cartoons on the GBA" trend that popped up at E3. I like SongPro's little movie player. I can see it being useful for watching -say- Fight Club on an airplane. Especially since it uses SD Cards which I have a few of. The other things about that trend were.. bad. I mean, $15 for two episodes of Yu Gi Oh? No thanks. For $15, I could buy a bit more episodes on DVD, better quality, extras, and much more. Hell, for $15, I could but a BETTER SHOW. I personally think the whole AM3 Animation thing is... dumb. But I like SongPro's player because it lets me download things from my computer. Now, go and read the archives and please do copy/paste the parts where I went berserk on printing the GBA rumors. I'm interested in seeing them myself, actually. I mean, I figured I did a lot better than some other sites in that regard. Note that I'm not jumping up and down over the Game Boy Next. Mostly because Nintendo announced only the screen size; but not the TYPE of screen, any resemblance to system specs, release dates, or games. So, no. I don't care about the Game Boy Next right now; because nothing has been announced in the way of GAMES. It seems repetitive to say it; but SHOW ME GAMES. I'm from Missouri. It's the FRICKIN' SHOW ME STATE. You know what I'm saying?
With the finalized system core specs released by Sony, the PSP blows away the PS2 in terms of raw power. That is rather nice if you ask me; but when will we hear about companies working on games? It appears that Sony currently wants to push the movie playing aspect of the device, the ability to use it as an MP3 player/GPS/Blunt Weapon, and the raw sexy power of the PSP first. The system won't be in developers hands by Christmas; but the dev kits will. Once those are out, Sony will show the finalized unit at E3 2004 and announce game titles in September 2004. SEPTEMBER 2004. This gives them a total of less than four monthes to blitzkrieg the press and toy stores with promotionals and information on the titles they will launch with. The time table here is going to require a lot of money to pull off. With Sony of Japan, Sony of America, and Sony of Europe all showing drastic red ink this last fiscal year.. it will take a George Bailey-esque miracle to pull it all off in time to pull enough clout to put any type of dent in the Game Boy market close to what Sony has been saying they will do. Sony has inherited Nintendo's own "Empty Talk" bug. I guess they have to do the empty talk now; because they can not say Saddam wants to buy all the PSPs in 2004, can they? Well, they could say Osama Bin Laden is trying to buy them all; but that would just piss people off: "You can't crash a plane without your PSP! It has Wireless TERROR LAN! From Sony! Terrorist approved!"
I used to own a Walkman in the early 1990's. It cost a grand total of $8. If Sony wants to make the PSP the new "Walkman" in 2004, they need to launch the system at a cost loss. If it debuts at $100 or less, you can be assured that I will be in line to get one the first day. I probably will be there anyways if it debuted at $150; but it's more of incentive for me to buy the thing if the price is lower.
As for the chip that Nintendo of Europe says they will show at ECTS? ECTS is next week. Sony and Nintendo have press conferences during London Games Week and the ECTS show. Nintendo says they are going to show off the chip. I wonder what they will use to show it off. And if Sony announces something on the way of PSP games at ECTS, I'll be happy. We will see what happens at ECTS and after that, the Winter Tokyo Game Show. Should be interesting.
What's happened to this place? The anime-related stuff is updated constantly, and hardly anything is updated that has anything to do with the gameboy or its games! The gameboy sections of the site haven't been updated in months! - BridgetPhilip: That would be.. Summer. Also.. game wise.. this summer has been a drought.. with only an occassional oasis. Also, games are expensive.. companies don't send free stuff as often and I have car payments, insurance, and all sorts of other evil expenses.
I've finally decided what I want to do in life.Philip: In the name of the Father, The Son, and The Holy Slack Monkey! I SHALL DESTROY YOU!
Duke, you forgot Iria. Ir...I...a! - BrianCPhilip: That's a good one.. I hope the Media Blasters Box for it turns out nice.
Hey Phil, I've been curious about your opinion about "Mario & Luigi: Superstar" and "Mario and Donkey Kong" for GBA. I mean if you're interested in them or not and maybe some possible reasons too please. Thanks. - Mario FanPhilip: Well, I can explain them in easy short sentences. I'm buying them BOTH. Well, anyways.
Donky Kong: It's Donkey Kong Goodness!
Mario & Luigi Superstar: Super Mario RPG 3.
There you go!
What??? Game ID system? This perplexes me. In order for the game to bear the mark of the first system to register it, the system would have to have some ability to write to the game disk, in order to make that mark. Go through all that additional hardware just to prohibit reselling games, which will only end up hurting them in the long run anyway? What a dumb idea. I was thinking, if it was a GBA game, you could just open up the cart and take out the backup battery... if that's what they use? Maybe it's Flash ROM. Oh, well. It's still worth it if they make FFVII-2. - MEPhilip: Well, they are a little rewriteable.
I get no love from DMG Ice. - Yellow SnowPhilip: Exactly. Back to your cage now, Yellow Snow Site-Bitch.
Amy: FFFFF!!! (translation: Actually say something if you intend to hit the infect button!)Philip: DDDDD!!!! (Translation: Amy-Chan is a freak; but she's cool.)
Forums Closing? Hmm...Philip: Essentially, it's time to clean up the site and make the content tight like a tightness worthy of being named the tightest tight tightness that ever was tightly tight.
Kirby once told me that when worse comes to worse, always try to throw a goomba. So once I did throw a goomba. Needless to say it ran after me. Kirby just laughed. I think enemies in video games need to be more friendly. Just look at kirby. When you look into those eyes, you know he's not planning to take over the world. - Shizzle-KinsPhilip: He may not want to take over the world; but he does want to eat it. I want to take over the world though. BWA HA HA HA HA HA!
I ask for viral speak! O yeah, and more msts. i already read that one long ago. make a new one. i already started on mine. you have to at least beat me! COME ON DAWN SPAWN! THIIIIIINNKK!!!! hehe, thats all i guess. - DarkmanPhilip:YOU GET NO VIRAL SPEAK! Oh, wait...
Hey, Philip, I gotta question for you...Philip: Well, we would host you; because our comics suck too. AND I ADMIT IT!
You cannot comprehend the deeper meaning of what it is to be a Spubber. One must have a pure heart in order to find what it is to Spub. - DukePhilip: Spubbing is not as the pure as teh FOY! Because Foy IS Flight.
I had a very, very, very good weekend. I blew a lot of cash. Pillar, 38th Parallel, Just... get their CDs.Philip: Go for it! Oh, I had to put the date tag on there; because I HAD to show the horrible evil lag that I have between getting stuff and posting it. I AM THE KING OF SLACK!!!!
Love anime enough? - BootsPhilip: Not as much as other things. That's for sure. <3
I wanted Shantae to pop out of my cake and grant me wishes!
(Buy her game or suffer greatly!)
