9. 9 Home Gaming Setups Better Than Yours Mar 18, 2008, 18:41 Hyatus
 
Most of these are awesome and better than mine, except:
8. Gamer's Paradise

I've got a similar setup except mine is a projector that takes up my whole wall. Screw plasma.

The real question is: Does smoking WEED affect the disk laser?

This game is fun. I often prefer to play this over TF2.
Only downside is that more people need to play.

He never watched himself on Star Trek or Boston Legal.
The only performance I would want him to watch would be his rendition of 'Rocket Man' just so he could feel the torture he gave to us.

I have yet to see Casino Royale(and with an 8 month-old now romping throughout the house probably won't see it for a good 15 years). However, two things I'd like to note.

First...what's wrong with Bond spewing puns inside a hidden volcano fortress while the timer ticks down? It worked just fine in Dr. No(well, it was more of an island than a volcano, but I digress).

Second, in any case I still believe it's completely different from the original book series(which is an excellent read btw, as I'm not generally into spy novels), so they're all really producer-written these days anyways.

Third, yeah, after Batman Returns it sharply rolled downhill. I mean Gotham ended up being more Vegas than seedy New York. However, I can't believe all the Robin hate. Robin's been in the comic book since nearly the beginning. What needed to happen was for Tim Burton to show us the darker Robin that would've made an excellent sidekick in Returns, maybe.

As a side-note, if anyone gets a chance to see Sweeney Todd, I suggest you take it. It's a great film and now I actually want to go see the stage musical. I never thought THAT would happen.

I'm sick of all the reviewers that don't give props to TeamFortress. It's like they all think TeamFortress Classic was the first iteration in the series.

Just my pet peeve?

Alright...Got a few minutes to wait for my son to finish eating, so I'll bite.

PC Gaming is not exactly dead. But it's not the same thing I grew up with, either. You can't look at the subscription numbers for MMORPGs and say PC gaming is dead. It's just changed business models.

Personally, I can't stand MMORPGs. I played about a month's worth of WoW and I was so bored. These days the money isn't coming from FPS and CRPGs, it's coming from subscriptions.

I guess the best question is, what happened to all of the good independent developers? It seems like the dream these days is to make a studio just good enough to be bought up by EA. How did those old devs make money back in the day with such a limited audience and why is it so hard to do the same thing today?

Is it so hard to say no to EA's money? Or is it their readily available spots on store shelves?

What can be done to rectify this?

Anyone else think it funny that some of these don't even pass the theoretical stage?

Really.
Their movie prices are now $4.19 for a rental here.
Why would anyone pay that?

Our local ma&pa video store(well, they've got two now) rents their old releases at a buck for five days. Why in the hell would I rent at BB?

News Comments > On Postal III
9. well... Jul 4, 2007, 20:33 Hyatus
 
Postal is still one of my fave games to play. Guilty pleasure indeed.

The 2nd one tried to get you into character by driving you so freakin' nuts with loading times and long-distance walking(never played with the patch) that by the time you got to do any real damage it just wasn't satisfying enough.

Still, I'll give the third one a shot.

There seems to be a lot of speculation on this kid's death.
Who knows, though?

ermm...you know the movie's coming out in May, right? ~.^

These games are so much fun. I wish they'd release more games that made you feel like you were the character.

'Bout time they're getting around to it.

Even more technically, the engine was MOSTLY a highly-modded q1 engine, but the original networking code was from Quake2(which has been pretty much written out, I hear).
