Let me get this straight:
"Latino children play more video games than white children. And they're really not able to play themselves," Williams said.

but:

"These are highly underserved groups. It's a missed sales opportunity."

So he's saying, what? Latino kids play more videogames but don't buy them? Racist.

Just played that Cooking Mama game and I'm wondering where I can get bleeding eggs at.

Also, Cooking Mama should have her name rescinded as apparently she leaves most of her food very raw.

My issue with the MP DLC idea is that it's hard to "add-in" MP after the fact. Games that start with the idea that there will be Multi are generally less problematic than games that add it in later.

Also, the less DLC my system has to d/l the better. It's tough to clear up all the crap on my system when I want to play something I've already purchased just so I can d/l for a few hours and remove it again later.

It's also a pain for those of us who also own PS3s where you have a max download limit before you have to purchase something again.

I just wanted something a little less mundane when you hit space.
I feel like I'm running an unsuccesful business with all the little stupid upkeep tasks you have to do to win.

Also, wtf?

You can clone a ship on the spot but you can't make several to invade the galaxy with?

To be fair, neither one(player vs gamer) sounds any good.
We should come up with a better label, I think.

How about Digital Hero?
Competitive Shooter?(for the fps gamers, maybe?)
GameBangers?(hey baby...I'm a gamebanger. Want some of THIS action?(whips out a PSP) yeah, that's right...hand-held...giggity)

Suggestions?

Yeah, releasing missions weekly.

And I agree, yes, that's what they get paid for. When I played CoH it was before the whole "create your missions" thing. I'm not saying it's easy, like, everyone and their mother could whip out a mission in fifteen minutes. But, experienced developers should be able to produce something in a timely manner. Maybe they need to make games more modular?

It's the only MMO I care about(albeit not a whole lot). I'm waiting for the open beta to see if it's worth sinking my free time(what little there is) into. Tried CoH and it was pretty meh. I hate games that "force" me to bring along a friend. Is it so hard to ask for weekly multiplayer-optional storyline-driven missions?

Freedom Force is awesome and still has a good little mod community going for it. It's too bad it didn't sell very well. That series needs more sequels.

Several Battle.net features like advanced communication options, achievements, stat-tracking, and more, require players to be connected to the service,

Stuff I could care less about, check.

Seriously. First, they split it into three games and now they're killing my LAN ability. I'm [---] <- That far away from waiting until it hits the bargain bin to purchase.

It could be fun, but 14 clips?
Can you imagine if Rock Band shipped with 14 songs?
Lame.

Yup. I can't play any other way. It's how I've been doing it for, what...13 years? Whenever Quake came out. Even on console games I use it.

I swear this is how it happened for the porn industry. Started with X, then XXX. Now it's up to, like, fifty Xs for how sick the stuff in the video is. Funny thing is, those fifty X videos are about as tame as the original Xs were. The only difference is the women are hotter.

Actually, this is exactly what's going on with titles these days.

It's a slight step above comic book level writing

Comic book writing is usually > game story writing.
