Auto-aim is a joke indeed.

But mouse/keyboard is not the only way to accurately control a game anymore. If pointing devices like the Wiimote get accurate enough then there's no reason that console games won't storm full-bore into the "hardcore" FPS and RTS genres.

The first generation of motion pointers is still a little rough for that, but the second or third generation? Maybe not so much.

The problem with motion pointers is that my arms get tired after awhile. There's not really a way to fix that.

No, the best thing would be a brain implant that knows what you are thinking. Until then, k+m for me.

Seems ridiculous to charge outside the UK. Should be the other way around.

another stupid MMO

How long have you been a hater?

When I realized that the buttons I click are better than the buttons the WoW players click. :p

Seriously, though. I started hating MMOs when my buddy invited me over to watch him play EQ. His character spent half the time sitting. It only snowballed from there when tons of development studios started changing their tune from the old classics and decided to try this new MMO pop music.

So, they spent over $100 million on WoW. WoW opened in 2004(november, almost 6 years ago). Let's assume the game has had 5 million monthly subscribers(has been more(11 million with China), has been less(when it started)) who all pay for 6 months at a time($12.99/month). That's $64.95 million a month times 12 months times 6 years.

Minus the $100 million for development and not even including what they've made on box sales, that leaves:

$4,576,400,000

4 and a half billion dollars.

It's no wonder all the good gaming companies want to make another stupid MMO and Activision Blizzard wants pay to play on everything.

I could care less if they bring it out on an Atari 2600. Finish the fucking storyline without leaving me hanging for 3 years.

Only book authors should be allowed to do that and even that pisses me off(damn you George RR Martin).

I hope Martin doesn't have a hand in this. We won't see it for ten years.

Note to Activision: Posting pics of a homely girl doesn't make me want to play your game.

Speak for yourself. I would tap that in a heartbeat. Plus, she has a kickin' singing voice. Though, I liked her a little better with some more meat on her bones.

It would appear she has both a nasal AND a navel piercing, although she could just have a ridiculously large "outie" belly button...or she's a thin pregnant woman.

Yeah, well, Bond isn't supposed to be non-stop action, either, but look at the last twenty years of Bond films.

"Bobby has always been passionate about games, and loves the video game industry. But as CEO of a company that makes games enjoyed by millions of people worldwide, the demands on his time now make it difficult to play games as often as he'd like to or as much as he once did."

So what she is saying is that a guy who runs a VIDEO GAME COMPANY doesn't spend time playing VIDEO GAMES? Good choice for running a company. Do you think the head of a movie studio doesn't watch movies? Ridiculous.

Can we all just agree to spell his name as Bobby Kodick? Did you see what I did there? Brilliant! I think.

I suggest Bobby Kotex.

Obviously they are doing this because... well, it's not very clear why.

Well, the name of the company isn't Sensible Games.

Just started playing this. Wow is it awesome. It's too bad they couldn't remake the Baldur's Gate series with this engine. I'd play it(again) in a heartbeat.

Well, if you have to play to gamble, who cares?
If someone just threw a game and I just made money because I beat them, I could care less about the outside betting. Assuming it would be a matched bet, of course.

I don't have games in my main budget anymore. I'll buy the occasional sub-$7.50 game on Steam and the occasional sub-$15 console game at a used game store, but that's what I can do.

Growing up sucks because you have to pay for things that are more important than video games. But hey. Once my kid(s) is(are) out of college(20 years from now) and if my wife will let me, sure, I'll buy it. I guess if I had more time to play the games now I'd spend more on them, but I only get a couple of hours a week at best for me-time.

I do miss it.

LOL, are you implying that Valve patches games based on how well they sell?

I think the idea is that they probably process patches on popular games that make them lots of money before going back to support the lower-end games. Sucks, but I understand.
