A complete remake of MGS3 on the Fox engine would be amazing, and I will throw money so hard at such a project. That said, it isn't going to happen.

Started playing CRYPTARK, which I picked up on the Steam summer sale. It's both frustrating and fun. But I think I'm just not that big of a fan of twin joy-stick shoot em ups.

I think longer than humans.

If i remember correctly there was a Vasudan Admiral in a Post-FS2 campaign who was an Admiral during the 14-year war between Vasudans and Terrans, too. Even i do not remember exactly which one.

What is the average Vasudan lifespan and how much does it vary?

If there is no canon information on this then has it ever been addressed in any fan-made campaigns or other supplementary material? Is there any generally-agreed upon fanon answer to this question?

Molto bene   ;)

MGS 2 and 3 HD remake on P'S Vita.   Currently on a week long holiday with in laws and I needed a fix and this is all I can get due to the wifi and my vita failing to cooperate, otherwise I'd be remote connecting to the PS4 6 hours away and playing something a bit less addictive.

This feature request is still outstanding. I've put together a training mission on a proposed advanced IFF system, intended for police and peacekeeping. Please use the attached table and mission to see exactly what kind of behavior I want to teach to the AI.

That's my guess, too. Those storyboard arcs were fun to watch. Haha such uncivilized weapons...

I expect that some of the 12 episodes planned for release include the 8 storyboard episodes that have been released.  If you have seen them, my favorite part is during the "Death on Utapau" ark, where Kenobi & Skywalker have to fight with blasters instead of light sabers and Anakin is going all-out with the trick-shots on his twin blasters.

Since I was fed up with single-handedly causing the extinction of the snow leopard in Tomb Raider 2 I decided to keep playing Castlevania Rondo of Blood (romhack with the PSP translation) on the Wii, this time using a Mega Drive gamepad with a Gamecube adapter by Raphnet Tech (even with international shipping was much less costly than one of those Hori pads and I always have some Mega Drive/Genesis controller lying around since it's basically the console of my childhood) and boy is it much less tiring playing with a proper D-pad.
Of course I interrupted at the galleon level and that's where the proverbial **** hits the fan, Death was the first boss I had to use the built-in hint system for and the following level was a boss rush and the seventh level started with the most difficult version of the crumbling bridge with bats in all Castlevania games I played, though the level is mostly in line with the rest of the game for the rest once you rescure Richter's girlfriend. Though I had to use a walkthrough to find the two remaining damsels in distress, one was obvious in hindsight, the other much less so. At the moment I still have to get the timing to pass under the second form of Dracula while it jumps right, and thank god Dracula's boss room is a separate level, I don't think I could take going through the clock tower and its boss every time I lose a continue.

Also in my quest to get in touch with what the kids play today I picked up Assassin's Creed: Director's Cut on, mostly because I wanted something not too difficult after spending two hours trying to beat Dracula in Rondo of Blood. I'm playing in Italian for once, mostly because I think I'll get the Ezio Auditore's games and I wanted to experience at least this part of the series consistently and I HATE when some english speaking actor decides to break in random Italian phrases. Yeah, I know that to brits, yanks, aussies and company sounds cool and exotic but there is basically no native english speaking actor that I know of that doesn't still have a foreign accent to an Italian ear and let's not talk about bad grammar and misused idioms.  :rolleyes:
But forgetting rants about language, I'm liking the game so far, there is a lot of repetition but since I'm not exactly searching for deep gameplay at the moment it's not necessarily an issue for me. The controls feel a bit weird though, I tried both M+K and gamepad and in the end settled for M+K because it's easier to control the camera with the mouse.

I also watched the Clone Wars 10th Anniversary Panel at the San Diego Comic-Con.  I had already seen the teaser beforehand, but you can really feel the intensity of the crowd as they realize what just happened as they're viewing the teaser.

I did as well. They got so excited, and it's probably the most happy surprised I have been about any fictional story in a long time.
