  9. I've got February 1996 (#81) just about done. I was going to upload it now, but I noticed some minor issues (gutter blemishes and scan lines mostly) I missed when reviewing the cbz, so I'm going to go back and fix those. Process was much less tedious this time because I wrote quick and dirty program to streamline my straightening workflow. I made an attempt at improving the images as suggested by kitsunebi77, but I don't really have an eye for these things so someone will have to tell me if I screwed it up. I kept the pngs from before that, so they can be re-adjusted if necessary.
  10. Western games in Japan

    I guess one other point worth considering is that Japan makes so many games of its own, their market might not be able to support competing against foreign titles as well, so they choose not to release too many of them. Beginning with the NES, America heavily relied upon Japanese games to fill out its console libraries, while Western developers preferred to focus their efforts on the PC. As consoles became more PC-like in architecture, more and more Western developers made console development a priority, and the amount of imported Japanese games began to decline (somewhat), but there is so much console gaming history tied to beloved Japanese franchises that it seems unlikely that Japanese games will ever lose their strong presence in Western markets. But Japan has never had a history of importing Western games. Japan didn't even have a viable console market until the launch of the Famicom, by which time the US video game industry had already collapsed under Atari's excess. There WEREN'T any US-made games to import. And once the NES became successful and certain Western developers tried cashing in by churning out quick and easy garbage, the opinion in Japan that Western games were crap was quickly solidified (and since all serious game development in the West was happening on PCs, hardly anyone in Japan was aware of it, since the PC gaming scene there was so small). So Japan made enough games to satisfy its own market to the fullest. Importing lots of Western titles could have possibly hurt the sales of their domestic product.
  11. Net Neutrality and Zero Rating

    Fundamentally, we are on the same side, as far as ideals go. Remember that although a law may be old in origin, it may often still be relevant far into the future. Reaching way back here, the Magna Carta is still VERY valid in terms of human rights, and it is nearly a thousand years old. I agree that the market needs more competition when it comes to broadband providers, as well as content producers. Personally, I have little use for cable makers and the like, I rarely watch TV in general anymore. BUT, I understand that a lot of us do, and don't want to see corporations abuse their customers. I don't believe Pai has our best interests in mind, truthfully. Taking a lawyer who worked for the very industry he is now supposed to regulate? Have you ever heard the phrase about not letting the fox guard the hen house? Very much applies here, and is a large part of what is wrong with Washington, it's a revolving door between lobbyists and the white house. Either way, we will find out soon enough, as there is a proposal presentation in congress for next week, the week before Thanksgiving. If you pay attention to history, a lot of shady policy tends to get passed during times that folks aren't always paying attention to what their representatives are doing...
  12. Western games in Japan

    I'm open to playing just about anything if it has one or more of the following: -Unique art style -Great writing -Atmosphere that pulls you into the game world -Great controls -A fun sense of humor Really, my requirements aren't many, so long as it does at least one of those things well, I'm more than willing to check a game out. I'm a little disconnected from the modern gaming scene, and honestly, I'd have trouble naming you a list of big games in the last, oh, I dunno, 5 years over here? As far as western games over there, I can see Crash Bandicoot having appeal. It was a great platformer, and had fun characters. Everything about those games just focused on the player having fun... even if it was frustrating at times, it was a motivational frustration, something that challenged you to do better next time.
  13. Sorry E-day, had a feeling that a simple approach like mine wasn't going to fit your needs too well. No worries though, only one who uses my computer is me, but I can understand helping others in the house makes life easier for everybody.

  16. That would be okay for me, but I want it to be very usable for the rest of the family. I want it to be the same for them to use whatever streaming box I have in the living room as it would be for them turning on the PVR. Maybe someone who is more into this stuff will reply one day

  26. Net Neutrality and Zero Rating

    Yes Pai wants to repeal the 2015 reclassification applied to broadband providers because it is based off of legislation from the 1930's which were never intended for modern day broadband and internet providers. Added to this, the pile of new regulations added in the 80's, 90's and 2000's only complicate the process of regulating the industry effectively. The real issue here is not about whether the FCC wins or loses rather, the FCC could use the same power to regulate internet service beyond broadband. The new goal of the FCC is to take a different approach to regulating providers and internet in America by focusing on actual abuses of market power while continuing to support the basic principles of net neutrality. One particular issue in court right now is the AT&T / Time Warner merger. AT&T being the owner of DirecTV while also being one of the largest fiber optic providers and Time Warner owning some of the largest content studios including Turner Broadcasting. So far the justice department has said that AT&T/ Time Warner will need to sell DirecTV or Turner Broadcasting before this deal can go through, something both companies don't want. I think these companies need to be broken up in this case because if this new conglomerate owns both the fiber optic cable as well as controlling the media content being created, this will negatively affect the industry and the users.
