Anyone know how to get into the site?
I get the age gate immediately and, as Blue said, I get to enter it to my heart's content.

Update: I got in. Weird. It happened on two different computers at two different locations and now it's working fine.

I disagree. I think Betamax is better than VHS.

The truck looks like an RC car and the aliens are all covered in cellophane but it might be entertaining.

So whats the point of reading it if it can be summed up in 1 sentence?

Because that one sentence doesn't explain how anyone has come to that conclusion.

The game starts with a kick-off. That would be kicking a ball...you know, with your foot. Matter of fact, there's quite a bit of kicking involved. Maybe we're just biased against watching giant, monstrous hulks play sports over twiggy athletes that makes us believe our football is better than the rest of the world's football. I dunno.

I suppose I should mention that I'm anxiously awaiting the Ducks vs Tigers game today. I don't mean anything by this conversation. Just filling in my time.

My point being is that you always see the UK focusing on more intellectual type games compared to the U.S. Over here it is all about the non thinking, simple button mash games......Call me crazy...

I think that having WoW and Sims 3 on the list somewhat invalidates your argument.

I agree that most of the blockbusters here in the US are action-themed games, but they have their own strategies as well(God of War-esque action titles excluded). I think it's more fun to play with people who think on their feet than it is to sit back and have all the time in the world to ponder a move.

Sucks for Valve and the other companies involved with this. That just means more people are going to pirate the games instead of giving them money. How stupid is Australia's governing body, really?

I dunno. I see it as more of a fighting game than an Ultimate Alliance-style one.

The Secret Wars were all about a handful of heroes versus a handful of villains. MUA had a lot of peon fights before you get to the boss fights.

I'm cool with this as long as we stay out of Secret Wars II territory. Really, who needs to play a game about a god that has a teenager's temper.

Time-Lapse Shows Natalie Starting Age 10 Years In 86 Seconds.
Ms. Pacman.


I skimmed over that and read the Pacman as Portman and combined the two in my head and swore it said "Time-Lapse Shows Natalie Portman Starting Age 10 Years in 86 Seconds."

No, it just shows part of the new protagonists being created and that GlaDOS is the child of Alyx Vance and the TF2 Heavy and you win by going back in time and killing either of them before GlaDOS is born, stuff you probably already knew.

But, if I go back in time to kill them doesn't that create a paradox wherein I didn't need to go back in time therefore affecting the future making me still going back in time?

News Comments > Ender's Game Project Cancelled
25. Re: Ender's Game Project Cancelled Dec 15, 2010, 13:37 Hyatus
 
Ender's Game and Ender's Shadow are great books. They speak to the idealistic teenager in me.

However, the sequels read like Tom Clancy novels. I am a Clancy fan as well, but I realize it's an action novel with some intrigue. I don't expect to figure out life, the universe and everything by reading them. That doesn't mean they aren't enjoyable.

SPOILERS FOLLOW

In any case, what the hell were they thinking? Ender's game has, at most, three different things that would be considered gaming and none of them are exciting enough to be their own game and they are too different to be included in one.

You've got:

1. The battle school training.
2. The adventure game he breaks.
3. The endgame all homeworld-style.

Past that, if you included the other books you'd have:

4. Hostage situation takedowns.
5. Escaping from place a to place b.

Yawn.

the war on drugs

Uh... how is this capitalism? Do you know how much money Philip Morris would be making if they could put a weed vending machine on every street corner? Do you know how much money the government would be making if they could tax it?

Big Pharm knows that you can use that stuff to help with medical problems and wants to do everything in its power to try and make sure you can't get your hands on it so you can use their solutions instead.

Your economic views are painfully simplistic. It's like you think we're the way we are because people are evil.

Most people aren't evil. But big corporations are. They answer to one thing and one thing only. The almighty dollar.
