>>418496 In other news TLOU2 continues to be naught but a terrible meme.
The ending is a retarded mix of "Spare the villain despite murdering your way through their underlings" bullshit and ridiculous grimdark sadness where the girl can't play the guitar that reminds her of her dead father-figure anymore because she got her fingers bitten off.
>>418551 As far as I know, rechargeable batteries don't just explode on their own - if they are broken, they just swell up, potentially cracking the case they are in. If they are prone to exploding, they would do so when being recharged.
Sony was infamous for having several scandals in the 00s, that irreparably tarnished their name. One of those scandals involved exploding batteries in laptops.
I think the worst case scenario is that your old PSP is just dead by now, possibly have a cracked case.
Finally got around to re-playing Halo 2 on the Master Chief collection... it's been 14 years since I last played it, back when it came out on PC. I remember it looking better than this. But then, I may remember it wrong, the graphics do seem to be similar to what the standard was for those days. Simply polygonal shadows, one directional lightning, pretty much no shader effects. The only thing making it look better is the normal mapping (a very big thing in that era), ragdoll effects, and some parts of the terrain being destructible.
>>418631 The last good things Apple still have to their name are the iPon and iTunes. iTunes because it actually separates music from audiobooks from podcasts, and keeps EACH podcast paused for later. iPod stores the same info, and that is gr8.
They had it all planned out and ready to go before they launched their lawsuit, the problem was most of their player base (a) don't care that much and (b) weren't alive when the ad they are parodying was out.
>>418727 aaaahahahahah fucking lol. I guess that's the end of that company. Shame because Skullgirls was really something that was in demand at the time (there were barely any quality 2d fighters when it came out, and it was the next best thing after Capcom took a shit on Darkstalkers). But now they basically run themselves into the ground.
>>418728 Its mainly down to Mike Z, he was a fucking psycho.
Apparently all this time he was a skeevy git, perving on chicks and generally being an autistic weirdo, and when people talked to him about his behavior he'd throw tantrums where he dramatically threaten to quit the company.
During the closing days of Lab Zero his behavior got worse and in the end he specifically fired EVERYONE who hadn't already left the company. Keep in mind this was everyone who still stuck with him by this point and were giving their all to try and keep the studio alive.
Sega announced they'll be *doing something* with Virtua Fighter... the announcement mentioned "Virtua Fighet x esports" which sounds ominous, but at least they are finally doing something with what is the best fighting game series ever made.
>>418832 Mike Z turned out to be more than just goofy and autistic, was actually a huge piece of shit. Creeping on chicks or being an asshole to the rest of the staff then when his coworkers would confront him about it would throw retarded tantrums and threaten to quit along with other bullshit.
It got worse towards the end, when he even turned around and fired the people that stayed with him and tried to keep the studio alive.
