    In double dragon you can do a lot of stuff. Punching, kicking, doing combos with the other player, picking up bottles (you mentioned knives already). And in the version I played (3?) you could also gain two other characters.
    This is the game that gave me blisters on my fingers 😀

    @Kinect games not playable until Nov. 4th
    This is a dumb way to do handle the launch of the device … What can I say, Microsoft keeps true to itself 🙂

    Derrick, you forget that during in prison you have food and shelter

    @A post-pc era
    He’s right about that, you need to see a plausible future that is better than the current status.

    And here’s the thing: I can see entertainment encompassing mobile devices, but I don’t see myself coding on an iPad. Or a netbook. Maybe a laptop, surely a desktop. The PC is somewhat the most ergonomic choice when it comes to working in IT. So as long as somebody must develop apps, there will still be a requirement for PCs.
    As for operating systems, the issue is who has the most apps. Windows was aimed from the start to the average dude, and it is also the oldest OS that had that in mind. Because of that, it has the most applications for the average dude.

    @Sony’s PSP 2 will be more powerful than Xbox 360
    Well, both PSP2 and XBox 360 are gaming machines. As for the most powerful, it all depends on the test, so I’m taking the news with a grain of salt.

    @Some 3DS have been announced
    Why are they doing old titles? Well, my guess is that they don’t have the development power required to make new ones.

    Gaah! DD stands for Digital Distribution, not Digital Download. Or other stuff 😛

    @QOTW: I think the PS3 is a failure. From all the indie gaming websites that I visit, none mentions PSN. Most, if not all, mention XBLA. So, from my point of view, PS3 failed. It failed to create a community around it, and therefore to create a market. And it is still freaking expensive.

    @QotW I can’t see them as failures. Sure there are plenty of things sony can learn from this generation and improve upon, but unless Sony decides after evaluating this generations sales figures that its going to pull out of the console/handheld business, I dont think it is a failure. That said, they (psp, ps3) seem far from a roaring success.

    Also just sent in my questions for episode 200, if possible could I get some confirmation that they have been recieved incase I got the email adress wrong. Thanks. =D Got a few doozies in there that will hopefully will be a laugh.
