    At the risk of being partisan: Ask the Republicans. :P

    If fast-food restaurants allowed people to see what was going on, they could probably kiss around half their business goodbye. Probably true for a lot of places, actually.

    They realized their folly pretty quickly there. :P I watched an episode where he almost walked out today as well. Actually, a lot of the other people walked out at some point, including the manager, who refused to even talk to him after he had fixed up everything. She just told him to leave... but changed her mind later when she saw how good business was doing.
    It was on an episode about a restaurant called "Blackberry."

    Funny that you should bring that up. I'll never forget that moment in the Republican debate I watched this year, when someone asked what should happen to someone who gets really sick and hasn't bought health insurance. The host asked "Should he just die?" and you hear a portion of the crowd roaring and cheering, applauding the thought. Then there was the wonderful "If you're unemployed, or not rich, it's your own damn fault!" I just don't understand why anyone would think that's a moral outlook, but oh well.

    Even some places you "know" could have poor standards, though. Luckily, I only really frequent two places, one which serves food so damn near perfect that I'd probably eat there even if they were stirring pots on the floor, and in the other, you can actually see the kitchen. They have transparent glass behind the counter, and if you care to, you can see what's going on for the most part, so I feel pretty safe that there are no shocking transgressions taking place there.

    Yeah, he was a complete prick, through and through. His brother was the exact opposite, he even told Ramsay when the chef lied to him about his dishes being frozen and not made in-house, much to his brother's chagrin. I feel sorry for the nice guy who's stuck with him, but they're brothers, so I'm sure he loves him deep down.

    Oh yes, England was a utopia on earth back then, with nothing but blissful tea-drinking, intellectual discussion and lovely, Gothic architecture. What's that about horrible inequalities, imperialism and abuse of workers? Mere propaganda, probably from the same people who were responsible for putting top-hats out of style. (I wish I could walk around in one... that would be awesome.)

    The more I watch his show, the less I want to eat out. He'll be saving me a lot of money!

    He didn't misunderstand the term. He was just going nuts, almost wanting to beat up Ramsay because he had called him an idiot once already (and he did NOT take kindly to it), so his brother lied to him to try to calm him down. :P

    Cool. I like English gentlemen, and the whole aesthetic surrounding old England. I want a top-hat, damn it. I think people in general need to grow thicker skin. What's the big deal if someone disagrees with you, as long as he's not being a jerk about it?

    Yeah, the seafood place. Seafood and poor hygiene, now there's a winning combination. I guess they must regret their decision once they see Ramsay take charge, the ego comes into play and whatnot. My favorite part was when the guy had to convince his brother that what Ramsay said (busy idiot) was actually a compliment in Britain, rofl. Because the brother was about to flip and completely lose it.

    Bold statement, I like that. If I like the game half as much as you think I will, it'll be a delightful experience. I think this forum is nice as well, mostly because it is well moderated. Nonsense isn't tolerated, but I've never been unfairly censored either. Unfortunately, that sort of vigilance is necessary for constructive conversation on the internet.

    It is really fun to watch an episode now and then. I'm watching one about a restaurant called Oceana right now. (season 4, episode 14.) It's the best one I've seen yet. One of the owners and the chef are just complete pricks. I've never seen anything like it. At least three times someone said that Ramsay couldn't possibly know anything about cooking, "because he's British." (They also didn't understand a lot of what he was saying and told him to "speak English." Incredible irony. :P)

    I agree.... let's not even go there with the "comedic" Batman movies....

    That's what a good gaming experience comes down to, sucking you in. If you're immersed, the game is doing something right, no matter how they accomplish it. Same goes for any entertainment or work of art I think. Thanks for the compliment, I hope I'll be able to enjoy the game and get into it, because it sounds really good on paper.

    By the way, I'm watching some more Kitchen Nightmares now and laughing my ass off. I love how good Ramsay's intuition is, he's always spot on when they've used frozen wares or microwaved their food. I love it.

    So am I. The trailers are not too promising, but I would be very surprised if the movie wasn't at least good, though hopefully it will be great.

    Another thing to consider starting, then. Hardcore grew in popularity as the game got older, and people were both more experienced, and perhaps a little tired of the usual gameplay.

    Pretty much agreed, unfortunately. Just a mire of mediocrity.

    Ah, okay. I'm used to RPGs being 25~ hours, sometimes more. Diablo II used to be a huge obsession of mine, around a decade ago. Hardcore was, well, hardcore. You could put dozens of hours, maybe even hundreds, and then lose it, just like that. That was incredibly thrilling, finding rare items was so rewarding in that mode.

    They are, but in these times in particularly, it's the place to go for original ideas. Hollywood is incredibly stale right now.

    It sounds, and looks, like a fun game, but I'm not ready for another RPG at the moment. Such huge time-sinks. I like that system, though... consequences always make you appreciate the rewards so much more. If you ever played Diablo II, I used to play on the "hardcore" mode there all the time. (If your character dies once, it's gone forever. No load, no nothin'.)

    That's true, originality should be commended, but on the other hand, if you got a great idea that is put to horrible use, it makes you even more frustrated with the movie. I've seen that quite a few time in semi indie-movies too. >_<

    Thanks for the all the links. That's the emulator I already downloaded, guess I must have some wicked intuition. (Or it was the first one on the list I found.... but no one needs to know that.)

    That sounds relatively simple, I'll try to set that up a little later, hopefully it'll work. Funny that you should link Fire Emblem. A mere week ago a friend dropped by and was really gung-ho about that game, showing me all sorts of videos. It had some really nice sprite animations, I love that sort of stuff.
