Impossible. No data from that time remains! I call shenanigans!

It's just one way to defray the skyrocketing costs of videogames

Which I would understand if the end-user saw a break from the $60 price that games come out at now, but it's not going to happen.

There are no laws in the US that govern selling kids mature rated video games/movies/books/whatever, UNLESS it's porn.

However, most businesses have their own regulations regarding sale to minors.

Well, at least they won't be able to blame piracy on their low sales numbers.

There is that.

No, I think the fact that we've basically outlawed internet gambling makes us feel like you outsiders.

News Comments > Carmack on Crysis
11. No subject Jun 4, 2008, 01:02 Hyatus
 
I dunno. With the recent bs about no more patches for Crysis, I think anyone should be open to bashing them.

And sure he plugs his game. Welcome to business 101.

He's absolutely right, though. Crysis is a game for hardcore players. It isn't remotely accessible to noobs.

And how many people played through Crysis and then uninstalled it? It's not a lasting game. The first three Quake games are lasting.

I think I'm fine with him speaking up given these points.

From what I read the game was uninspired, it was hard to make any kind of money and it didn't allow US players outside of the freeplay zones. It's no wonder.

At least someone's trying, though.
If only there was a way to play Madden NFL for real cash...

News Comments > Ships Ahoy - Kung Fu Panda
2. *sigh* Jun 3, 2008, 11:27 Hyatus
 
You know, the first time I saw the trailer for the movie I was excited. They show all the other animals doing awesome kung-fu like stuff, I'm psyched because it's a cool-looking martial arts movie with animals that isn't dumbed down, I'm going to pay money to see it and then:

The panda.

Whatever happened to serious animated movies? All the cool stuff they can do these days with 3d and it all has to be relevant to the kiddies. I wish someone would kill off all of the producers that think movies need to be dumbed down, need to have a romantic interest, need to add an uber-"urban" character for "laughs"(*cough*WandaSykes*cough*), need to add a kid, etc...

I sure miss a lot of the pre-80's era of film and music where people would take chances on movies. And look how many more classics we had before then.

Alright, jumping off of the soap box.*ahh, that feels better*

eh, pretty weak trolling.
Equating this statement with enslavement, pro-environmentalism, communism and our general elections is way too far-reaching.

But, have a banana sticker anyways.

I don't think he means he wants to play an arcade-y blaster, exactly.

He's bringing up some valid points, here.
It's not like it's an easy task to "wing-man" in these space-sims. Most of them make it feel like you're sitting at a monitor while doing target practice. It's difficult to look around and spot your buddies.

Plus, these games typically leave out a lot of features that co-op in space requires: voice-chat, sending targetting info, constant ship-markers, etc...

Not to mention that the AI wingman code isn't usually terribly realistic.

It's hard to command a wing.

Co-op in space games is only not fun because the network code usually sucks.

I agree, about the marketing.
But what a great game.

Radioshack sells(sold?) a PS2 Controller->USB adapter for ~$15.
I picked up four a couple years ago.
They rock and you can get force feedback(something PC games don't use anymore)

The only time I buy a RL mag is when the CD/DVD has a free classic game on it. Otherwise, it's been Blues for 10+ years.

I remember how slow Unreal ran on my old ATI card.
I upgraded to a Voodoo Banshee later that year.
Pretty game.
Maybe I'll go back and...nah...probably not.

"10 Items You Think Make You Cool, But Donít."

The first list like such I agree 100% with. Well, maybe except for the Old School reference part. I've never heard anyone quote that movie.

And as for Justice League, who cares?
Marvel has much better characters. As much as I enjoy Smallville(or did, anyways), Superman is such a lame character. Who wants to read or watch about a guy who can't die? Must suck to be him. The only decent super-character DC has is Batman and I'm glad he's back to getting the credit he deserves.

Is there really a reason to have a PCI-E sound card? I mean, other than being able to say that you have a PCI-E sound card?

It's a cultural thing. A lot of gay folks embrace it.

What's wrong with being intoxicated while playing games? What's wrong with being intoxicated period?(I mean, outside of work/driving/spending time with your kids)

The people who LOVE to tell us they're high and/or drunk are just having fun their own way. At least it beats exploiters/hackers/general douchebaggery.

You can always turn off voice chat.
