3. ugh... Dec 21, 2002, 22:10 Hyatus
 
"In addition to building on its predecessor's impressive sales figures, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City picks up where GTA 3 left off with violence toward women."

Uhmm...last I checked GTA3 and GTA:VC were equally violent
towards both sexes. It's not like women have extra blood
or have explodable breasts or anything of the sort.

"Almost all video games are designed and produced by men. Many games appear to reflect young male fantasies. It is very disturbing that the most popular games reflect a violent and misogynist attitude toward girls and women or treat girls and women as sexual playthings."

Don't blame us for the lack of interest the opposite sex
shows in the industry.

"the player is rewarded if he murders a prostitute after having sex with her."

The player is rewarded for killing ANYONE. And besides,
doesn't this guy hate hookers anyways?

"Incomprehensibly, BMX XXX did not receive an AO (adults only) rating despite involving scenes of topless strippers."

The naked female body on a bicycle is a beautiful thing...or
something...

I refuse to comment after this or I'd have to spend an hour
refuting this moron's claims about children and videogames.
What an uninformed and ignorant pile of dog crap...

I'm sure it'll be a decent action movie, but...ugh...
I agree. I want a future Terminator movie.

Course, didn't Arnold already agree to doing T4?
I swear I heard that a couple months back.

1. Vice City! Dec 18, 2002, 12:21 Hyatus
 
w00t!

Can't wait to play this game(no, I don't have a PS2 and yes,
I'm a sad panda).

"For its 2003 fiscal year, which ends in October, Take Two expects to release a number of PC products, including a PC version of Vice City, Railroad Tycoon III, Serious Sam 2, and Hidden & Dangerous 2."

*blink blink* Serious Sam 2? ermm...wow, this is a great
beta! Can't wait to play the final version!

"For its 2004 calendar, starting next November, Take Two confirmed a few more big sequels, notably Max Payne 2, a new Grand Theft Auto game, and a State of Emergency sequel"

Max Payne 2, w00t! New GTA, w00t!(taking place in the 70s?
Hope so. I like playing big, angry, black men)

State of Emergency sequel...god help us. The original was
fscking horrible! After the first 10 minutes, the gameplay
got old and there wasn't anything new to do. They should've
stuck with the original design.

2. hmm... Dec 18, 2002, 12:13 Hyatus
 
Yeah, it's the same as Stormriders.

I've never read the manga. I didn't think the movie was
all that great. Aside from the special effects(they were
great, but not as good as "Legend of Zu"(which, IMO,
sucked...course, I never saw the original, so maybe I just
didn't 'get' it)), the movie was severely lacking. It
was probably a good movie for fans of the manga, however,
we don't have ready access to them in the US.

Well, if it's a free beta, might as well give it a shot.
I hope to god we see a mirror or two before day's end.

Actually, there's this insanely huge set of sounds that
quite a few moviehouses and gamedevs use. The name eludes
me at the moment. I'm pretty sure there are licensing fees
involved with it.

17. A Woman’s Guide on How to Pee Standing. Dec 10, 2002, 14:51 Hyatus
 
Wow...for at least til direction #4(w/o device) and all
through the commentary at the bottom, I was pretty turned
on! Thanks Blue! ~,^

And that Eeeek!! link seems fake.
Granted, it's POSSIBLE, but the lack of consistency through
the pictures leaves some doubt. Not to mention why a snake
would want to crawl inside the thing in the first place or
how it got in the damned thing and why it felt the need to
stay in such an obviously cramped position.

I agree.
Total dream job.
Not only is it design and layout of maps(which is fun),
but design and layout of maps(which is fun) for Black Isle
RPGs(some of the best ever(not that I need to state that)).

*sigh*
Well...back to reality...

4. NFL...bah... Dec 4, 2002, 15:16 Hyatus
 
My favorite football games had nothing to do with the NFL.
Super High Impact was(and is) still infinitely better than
Blitz(an opinion, obviously(and not to mention that I find
Blitz to be pretty damned fun)).

Pigskin Footbrawl was (dare I say the word...) HELLA fun
(also still is).

And the granddaddy of all cross-genre sports titles, "Mutant
League Football"(well, and the uber-fun ML Hockey) to which
I am STILL waiting for an all-new kickass 3d version of.

Midway, sack the NFL. Do your own thing.

Unfortunately, I only saw the first few episodes of the
Sopranos this season. I missed episode 5, I believe and
then I just couldn't watch the rest of the series(I gotta
watch it all in order).

Seemed to be starting pretty good.
However, I feel like gunning down everyone who mentioned
the Tony and Ralphie spoiler. Some people don't have HBO
and actually watch the DVDs you know.

Grrr...
