You're out to lunch if GTA IV doesn't satisfy you any bit.

GTA IV on PC with Mod Support and full res is a SOLID game with some very apparent flakey extra fat bits that should have been omitted.

I guess I'm stuck in line and ordering a sandwich, then, unless there's a mod that actually makes the driving feel as fun as it did in the previous games. GTA should not be a freakin' driving sim.

My understanding is that when the current Spider-Man trilogy is done, so is the "splintering" of the Marvel movie licenses.

I doubt it. Fox still has the rights for at least 3 of the bigger franchises. In any case, I don't believe any outsider knows the contractual details for sure beyond that they include a [blank] movie every so often or they lose the usage of the characters.

Saying something like "glad that dude died, heard he was fat and ugly - so who cares". That dude could have been a really nice old War Vet that can't play newer games because his reflexes aren't what they used to be.

...the hell?

There was already a way to do this but it looks like they just made it easier. Let's hope they do L4D2 the same justice(again, already there, just would be easier).

He should go work for Mountain Dew. I think that company may be X-TREME enough for him and his earring.

Woah. He has an earring? Ah crap. My mom just heard and now I can't play Gears of War anymore.

Why in the hell would we want to eliminate the one dollar bill?
I understand pennies and can sympathize with getting rid of nickels and dimes. Do you want to live in a world where you tip your stripper in 5s or higher? No thanks, says I. She can work her way up(down?) piece by piece...of clothing like she's supposed to.

God, even the photo at the top of that story made me wince.

You think that's bad... did you see the first comment?
cousin of mine fell out of a small tree above my aunt's garden and had one of his testicles impaled by a thin metal tomato stake.

Blue, what are you thinking? I wouldn't click on that link if someone was...well...doing one of the things that are probably in that article to me.

[...] when there's nothing interesting that they can think to write, they just title a piece "_____________ Are Dead/Dying" and they look around their home or office and the first device they see gets written in the blank. BAM! Instant story.

This just in: "Lamps are dead. What will replace it?"

Due to the low cost of streaming sunlight into your home, people are finding it harder to justify the keeping of lamps and other bulb-related luminescent devices around. The last hurdle that sunlight has is to light those few hours of darkness after the earth rotates around it during the night. However, studies find that more and more people are turning to their monitors and flat screen TVs for late-night room light before dozing comfortably in their dark rooms for a peaceful evening slumber. Scientists believe that by next...oh...Spring(?) that bulbs will have gone the way of other once basic commodities such as on-air TV and radio.

The war on darkness continues.

There were nods to plenty of other movies as well. I enjoyed the Dr. Strangelove bit. I thought the film was funny but I wouldn't recommend it for most people.

What Went Wrong With Silicon Knights’ X-Men: Destiny?

You didn't get to play as the X-Men.

That was simple.

It's probably that oldest of cat stories.

It starts with a little bit of high-grade catnip...free at first. Then the physical demand for more starts to ramp up day by day. Pretty soon she's trading tuna, but the fish runs out. Then, unable to face her family for the food they've brought that has been so easily dismissed, she moves in with her tom cat. He will keep her safe.

All she has to do is a favor here and there, a little demeaning, sure, but he's her tom. But even he is starting to lose interest. After all, demand is high and there are so many other cats who want a taste of the 'nip these days. Then he suggests, with the back of his paw, that she starts doing those things they shared with some buddies of his. That's what keeps the 'nip flowing.

For a cold, rainy week this lasts until one day she just can't take it anymore. Then her claws show, but alas, she's had so much 'nip that her feeble body can't take the brutal jabs from her old tom cat. The lightning flashes as the rain pours down on her painful, beaten body. She repeats her mantra over and over again. He promised to keep her safe. He promised to keep her safe.

She is waiting to die, beaten and alone while sprawled across a dirty, garbage-filled dumpster. An old friend passes by, not sure at first that this mewing could be her old pal Josie, but she recognizes something in that sad voice. Her friend calls a few cats nearby to help pick Josie up and take her home, but Josie cannot face her old family. At least not yet.

Josie spends a week in kitty rehab. The days were long and grueling, perhaps her hardest yet, but she eats some food, a little more each day, and her spirits lighten up. The need for 'nip is still there but it lessens when she realizes that others have gone through what she has. Some even worse. At least she got out, even if her dignity lays in shambles.

She returns home, hopeful that her family hasn't forgotten or replaced her throughout those cold, autumn nights. The door opens and her family is there waiting. She strolls in slowly. She needs to pretend that nothing happened. After a day or two, home again, it feels as if nothing did. The past, a bitter memory, a movie starring someone else.

A few days later she is watching the news. Her tom cat was run over by a car she recognizes as from the 'nip man. Just rewards? No. Even he was loved by someone once. Poor soul. At least she is out of there. At least she is home.

...so it requires Vista minimum but DX9 minimum video card?
Why would they not market this to XP users?

How dare they release expansions to the game?

This is an outrage!

Seriously, though. While I'll be waiting for it all to go on sale, I don't begrudge the people that buy this stuff up early. That seems a little silly to me. Why is it that people buying content for their game and supporting the developers is a bad thing?

I miss fatbabies.com.
It was great to see all the dirt on mismanaged game companies, even if some of it seemed like whiny bitching from unreliable sources.

I guess my biggest problem with Wario Ware was that you needed to unlock multiplayer. Bringing it to a friends' house was a huge bitch.
It was only played on our one Wii, so I can understand. Though, why didn't you just pop an SD card in and transfer the save files?

Funny you loved NSMB until other people played. I actually found it somewhat dull single player [...] But being able to push someone into the lava was fantastic.

You must not have kids.

I disagree about Wario Ware. I thought it was the best incarnation yet and loved those little "stances" or whatever they were called when you got to the new ones.

I also thought New Super Mario Bros was awesome...until other people started playing. Then it was a nightmare of trying not to get smacked into lava or enemies while proceeding through the level.

Mario Galaxy was meh and had such a stupid 2nd player mechanism.

Boom Blox and Wii Sports/Resort/MotionPlus were all fun times, though.

Considering the fact that Cryptic pretty much sold CoH to NC Soft, who then took former Cryptic developers who left Cryptic and formed Paragon studios to develop content for CoH . . . yeah, Cryptic sure has put more development effort in to Champions . . .

Yeah, you're right. Even if one were to contend that Paragon was semi-Cryptic, content was pretty much the same with roughly 3 major updates coming out each year for both.

wish them luck, but I do not think they are going to have much success with this game. City of Heros just got canceled. Not a lot of market for a hero game.

It should have been cancelled forever ago. It's just the predecessor to Champions and I'm sure the latter has had more recent developer content from Cryptic than the former.

If this is really just a Marvel Ultimate Alliance-style MMO, I'm okay with that. MUA1/2, X-Men Legends 1/2 were really fun and sure, I'd prefer sequels to those games instead of an MMO, but this could be a fun romp for a little while.
