Well, I am a big(ish) white man. But I am not American.

Have you guys noticed that the Japanese seem to think that all white people are Americans?

Ha, that was funny. My friend and I also love to have a laugh at some of the personal ads. We both go to the Catholic church, at our parish free copies of 'Australian Catholic' magazine are handed out. At the back of the magazine are personal ads, most of them are filled with middle aged divorced pe...

There are two things that need to be clarified: 1. Forget what you see on Monty Python, a knight's full plate armor does not restrict movement. It has been proven that a knight in well fitted full plate armor is flexible enough to do cartwheels in it! 2. A suit of full plate armor and O-Yoroi Samura...

But there are lots of people who believe many of those Samurai myths!

A friend of mine actually believes that a well forged samuria katana could cut through anything except for another katana!

You are very miss-informed. Your opinion is based on stereotypes and cheap movies where Ninjas are flying in the air and running accross water!

There are so many myths about the samurai it is just not funny anymore!

Who will win in a battle between a samurai vs a knight?

Who do you think will win in a battle between a Samurai and a Knight?

I have been doing some research on this and have came up with a conclusion.

But before I give my opinion, I would like to know what other people think of the match up!

Saturns are quite costly to send to Australia because they can't be sent via Airmail from Japan. Most of the sellers on e-bay charge $60USD for EMS and $40USD for Sea Mail. Plus most of them sell the console itself for no less that $40 USD. I remember paying almost $100 USD for the console with ship...

Just fried my Japanese Saturn

Tonight I just fried my Japanese Saturn by plugging it into an Aussie power point without a step down convertor. This is stupid, I know, but I had gotten into the habbit of using one power cord for all my systems, so by force of habbit I just plugged in the wrong lead. Plus I have not played my Japa...

I guess that it depends on the type of game. But I have noticed that most Japanese action/ RPGs are so easy, they are more a test of time and patience than anything else.

Are Japanese games easier than western games?

Maybe it is just me, but I have noticed that Japanese in general are much easier than Western games. Look at the final fantasy games, very long but also very easy. Metal Gear solid can be completed in a day or two. And Sonic the Hedgehog is so easy its a joke!!

Hi all, I am back after a long absence! :-) Anyway, I just picked up a PAL version of Shenmue 2 the other day. When I booted it up I began to notice that there is terrible slowdown, sometimes I swear that the frame rate gets into single digits! I know that the DC is plagued with slowdown problems, b...

What kind of question is that? Value isn't going to die in 1 or 2 weeks. Of course you could resell it for about the same price you paid more or less. Sure the value might not go down in a few weeks, but I would like to re-sell it in a reasonable time. I am worried that it might not be too easy to ...

I am dying to play this game, but the price is quite high (its not that I can't afford it, it is more that I would feel guilty spending so much money on just a video game.) Because of this, I have decided to buy it, play it for a few weeks, and then sell it again over ebay. Anyway, I have two questi...

Do you think that Japanese censorship laws will change so that they can get rid of the mosiac? Has Japanese censorship laws become more liberial in the last ten years? These laws seem very strange,you may as well have uncensord porn or nothing at all.

anyway, I agree that we should have more sexual content in games and less violent...

That may be true, but "Playboy Mansion" is still pornography because it contains images that are created for the sole purpose of sexual arousal. BTW, what do you call hentai? it is simply Japanese for pervert, right?

But in the west Sony allowed Playboy Mansion, that contained some nudity? Why do game companies censor adult games? I mean, it is easy money for them, right? I have nothing against adult games, as long as they are not made avaliable to children.

I have been looking for adult Playstation games on e-bay (out of curiosity, not because I want to play them), however I could not find any. Why is this? Are Sony strict on censorship?
