Well, seeing as how it doesn't seem like they were trying
to attract any US publishers(or not doing it very well), you
could see how a lot of people overlooked it.

Don't get me wrong, pirating does hurt the industry, but
this sounds like just another poorly managed business
problem. And, I mean, let's face it...even before pirating
was wide-spread publishers didn't exactly jump at
originality.

Tho, what exactly was original about this game, I have no
idea.

Yeah, that Ralphie thing was weird.

So was that part later in the show where Janice has a little
tantrum.

What about the ultra-kewl Conan cartoon series?
It was 50x better than the series(which was okay, IMHO).

I don't agree with the 'standardized' control issue.
90% of the controllers at the store are just copies of PSX
controllers. Standard seems to be no less than 8 buttons.

You DO know they can play CDs as well, right?

Well, look at the movie DVD industry. You think it caught
on because people decided to blow a few hundred bucks on
the initial DVD players? No...

It caught on because it started out saturating the market
and only got worse from there. The DVD section at Block-
buster was originally 2 shelving units. Now, it has been
expanded to more than half the store. And I went to the
local Fry's Electronics a couple weeks ago(by local I mean
40 miles from a major city ~,~)...One shelf o'VHS for
relatively obscure titles, and about 15 LONG isles full
of DVDs.

I think the biggest drawback for the moment of DVD-Rom
penetration is the lack of being able to play MPEG2 at
decent speeds without, I'd guess, paying thousands upon
thousands of dollars for a software license. Once that's
available I'm sure we'll see an influx of games using DVDs.

BTW, is there anyone here who owns a PC that doesn't also
own a gamepad or couldn't buy one for $20?

It's not like there's any friggin' difference between
consoles and adequately powered PCs except for the gamepads.

And aren't most video cards these days shipped with TV-Out
options? Oi...

So, saying that a game should come out on the console
because it's more geared towards the systems is, truthfully,
a load of BS, right?

eh...I don't agree about the emotion of those games(save
NOLF which is fun as hell and hilarious to boot).

The emotions Half-Life gave me weren't through scripting and
design(unless you count the occasional fright of a monster
jumping out at ya), but through gameplay(some tough battles
and trap-setting make it fun).

Starcraft got a couple chuckles out of me, but the bland
gameplay, levels, etc...did nothing for me.

I think there are three attributing factors to why Blizzard
does so well. One, HIGHLY established brand name. Warcraft
was a great game back then. Two, Glitz. While I sometimes
don't appreciate Blizzard's gameplay, they have great menus
and character design. And three, what seems like the
absolute BEST marketing team in the biz.

However, I'm almost willing to try out Worlds of Warcraft.
And I REALLY REALLY REAAAAAAALLLY HATE MMORPGS. I don't
think I can stress that enough. REAAAAALLLLYYYYY HATE
MMORPGS. Probably the marketing team. ^,^

"the Logo this week had me reminiscing"

Me too. Best. Logo. Ever!

Now that you mention it, I think you're right. It is
Enemy Unknown. I remember the patches being compatible
with both versions. Hmm...Guess I'll have to go home and
try the game out again if I have time tonight.

I prefer optical mostly because I can use it on the couch
when I'm gaming/movie...ing on the bigscreen in the living
room. ^_^

The major downside of opticals, tho, is that you can't
use them on the majority of shiny surfaces.

Win9x should be fine for most things.
2000 is a bad gaming OS and XP is still fairly new,
expensive, a little buggy and has a horrible licensing
scheme.

I wish developers would at least make their learning
software available to the low-income masses and/or high
school students who need to learn this stuff.

Quake 1 was biatchin' alright. Still, nothing beats(for me)
the original TeamFortress. That was back when clans were
fun, kewl, competitive and people didn't call good snipers
any variety of demeaning names.

I must admit I skipped a little bit of school to play some
matches. ^^;
