Why the big fanfare everytime these idiots release some crappy 'free' content , is that not what you pay the monthly fee for in the first place?? lol

The announcement isn't for the people who are already playing the game, they'd already know. It's for those who haven't tried it yet. If they see that a game is getting continually updated and supported by the company, they're more likely to give it a try.

It is considered one of the best console games ever. I consider it one of the worse PC games ever.

A sub-par PC game is still much better than what console gamers are used to.

I hate it when writers try to be clever with the headlines. But at least they're not as bad as the local TV news.

They should make a mmog out of the Dungeon Siege world/saga/IP.
Like Warcraft it's well known enough to have a fan following.

And after the movie EVERYONE will want to play!
In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale (2007)


It's a Uwe Boll movie. Once it comes out, no one will want to play.

The dev team really communicates with the fans, and that impresses the hell out of me.

What amazes me is that a company that makes desktop utilities for Windows is able to put out higher quality games than most dedicated game companies.

Clip of donuts is on its way to the Bats now from me:D

I can see the next video now, "The fastest donut clip you'll ever see." It will feature a very large man and a couple of 10 "round" clips of Dunkin' Donuts.

And Wiki agrees: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clip

So it is perfectly valid to refer to such a thing as a "clip".


This is from that Wikipedia page that you claim agrees with you.

Common Misconceptions

The term clip is commonly used to describe a firearm magazine, or more accurately, a specific type of magazine known as a detachable box magazine. This is an incorrect usage of the term. In actuality, clips and magazines perform two different functions. It may be said that clips are used to load magazines, and magazines are used to load firearms.


Yes, clips hold cartridges and magazines hold cartridges, but that doesn't mean they're the same thing. That's like saying that since people live in houses and people live in apartments, then a house must be an apartment.

When I went through the gas chamber, one of the privates panicked and ripped the mask right off of a drill sergeants face. He was laughing about it once the effects of the gas wore off. Of course, he may have been laughing about what he was going to do to the private who did it.

5. Re: Jack Thompson Jun 4, 2006, 20:44 EricTheMad
 
I love Douglas Lowenstein's response. He doesn't refer to Thompson by name (thus robbing him of free publicity), but instead just refers to him as a "discredited anti-video game zealot".

Thompson is a parasite that feeds on publicity, good or bad. If we ignore him and stop treating him like he actually matters, he'll eventually just go away. Of course, as the guys at Penny Arcade said, if Jack Thompson goes away someone else will just take his place. And that person might actually be competent.

The concept sounds interesting, but it's a complete waste of the Shadowrun license.

The fourth dimension they are referring to in Timeshift is time (the timeshift ability). The fourth dimension they are talking about in regards to the PS3 is just marketing speech for "it's really cool". They have nothing to do with one another.

The Vortigaunts weren't from Zen. Supposedly they were another race who's planet had been enslaved, which explains why they were helping in HL2 and not attacking you. In HL1 they all had shackles on their wrists.

1 gigabyte per second??

1Gbps is actually 1 gigabit per second. That lowercase b makes a huge difference. That's still insanely fast though. Most PCs, even with a Gigabit NIC, can't come close to keeping up with that.

WTF? They are still working on this game? The movie was released over 5 years ago, does anyone actually care?

The movie sucked. Hopefully this will be closer to the book.

Q: BTW Eric, what board are you on?

A: The same one you're on, obviously. What, you think I'm going to respond to your post on a completely different forum?


Q: Spewing vitrolic illogical comments is the norm here and on many boards. I get sick of it every once in a while, don't you?

A: Yep. Which is why I was making fun of your post.
