Discussion in 'ATI' started by MS Will Destroy Sony Computer Entertainment, Mar 10, 2005.

  1. okay, ahem. the purpose of this thread...

    what does Xenon|Xbox Next, SegaGenesis, shmup|space shooter games,
    IBM PowerPC cores, X86 PC cores, ATI graphics, XNA, game development
    (and more) all have to do with each other?


    all is contained in this slide:

    "PC GPU driver eyeing your cores (all your core are belong to us)"


    heh, even Micro$oft are actually teh funny.....bringing up the old space
    shmup/shooter Zerowing from the Sega Genesis, and its once-hilarous english
    translation that became famous, even in the main-stream non-gaming media.

    maybe you don't know what the **** i am talking about:

    History of the 'All Your Base' Phenomenon



    In A.D. 2101
    War was beginning.
    Captain: What happen ?
    Mechanic: Somebody set up us the bomb.
    Operator: We get signal.
    Captain: What !
    Operator: Main screen turn on.
    Captain: It's You !!
    Cats: How are you gentlemen !!
    Cats: All your base are belong to us.
    Cats: You are on the way to destruction.
    Captain: What you say !!
    Cats: You have no chance to survive make your time.
    Cats: HA HA HA HA ....
    Captain: Take off every 'zig' !!
    Captain: You know what you doing.
    Captain: Move 'zig'.
    Captain: For great justice.


    History of 'All Your Base'

    1.. Toaplan creates the Zero Wing video game.
    2.. Toaplan releases a port for the Sega Genesis console with the addition
    of an intro scene, which is then translated into english (very poorly) and
    released in the United States.
    3.. Toaplan goes out of business.
    4.. Someone from a Zany Video Game Quotes website notices the poor
    translation, and highlights the game.
    5.. Overclocked.org does a humorous voiceover of the Zero Wing intro in a
    fake Wayne Newton voice.
    6.. Dozens of game-related messageboards begin to post quotes from the
    parody, and images altered to show the phrase.
    7.. Most of the threads lose interest and die off quickly as the trend is
    pronounced dead countless times.
    8.. The Flash movie/video is released with images from the threads and
    music taken from the origional game someone had added the phrase "all your
    base" to.
    9.. AYB explosively expands to the general (non game messageboard-reading)
    10.. The origional site for the video is shut down within hours due to
    excessive traffic, and moves to PlanetStarsiege.
    11.. Lycos ponders how "All your Base" was transformed from obscurity to a
    top 50 search practically overnight.
    12.. Mainstream media begin to notice the trend, and stories appear in
    Time Magazine, USA Today, Fox News, The Los Angeles Times, Tech TV, Wired,
    and many others.
    13.. As the 'remix' used in the video goes from 58 hits a day to several
    thousand per day, mp3.com notices the track has been ripped directly from
    the video game and pulls the music off their site due to copyright
    violations. It is later returned unchanged.
    14.. The trend continues to grow as it expands into nearly every corner of
    the web.
    15.. Large websites like Angelfire and Hewlett Packard sneak "all your
    base" references into their designs.
    16.. "All Your Base" is pronounced dead several times every day, yet it's
    15 minutes of fame continue for some reason...

    Toaplan & SEGA & Sega Genesis motherfucking rule. without them, there'd be
    no motherfucking ALL YOUR BASE hilarity.

    .... is to spam multiple newsgroups with your usual asinine bullshit.
    Yeah, if you consider using a reference that was sort of hip three years ago
    funny. "All your base belong to us" is about as funny now as Wayne's World
    references. Christ, even Futurama used it in an episode.
    Pretty much everyone who's ever been on TEH INTARNETS knows what you're
    talking about, noob. Why you think this hoary old reference is still even
    remotely amusing is the mystery.
