News Comments > Chris Taylor Optimistic About PC Gaming

I love how this news item is right above another item that demonstrates how corporations are trying (and failing) to shoehorn the PC into the console model. I wonder why they're trying to do that if it's such an inferior model?

Says you.
Ironically, the vast majority would say the opposite is the juvenile choice, saying it was simply shock value with no legitimate purpose.

So it's only shocking if they show dead Americans? Dead Brazilians and Russians just don't have that shock factor? I can understand I guess, I mean, Americans are rich and special but Russians are poor so it's not such a big deal. And most Brazilians aren't white.

I wonder if they'll lose 200 million dollars on it.

They'll have to take out an emergency loan to recover it, and their credit rating will drop

Fuck the Olympics and VANOC.

you're playing a game set in a city at the bottom of the ocean, in the past... and you don't want it to feel artificial. ok

When I hosted (I'm in Toronto) I completely pwned. I had a K/D ratio of three. Yet...when Whiskey tried to host, the tables turned. The host was getting that split second that separates fragger and fragee in FPS. When I was hosting I'd see the enemy's head suddenly pokeout around the corner just long enough for me to blast away, whereas my opponent would see nothing.

what a convincing methodology

There's a great difference when playing a 'turn based game' with another person 'in person' vs. playing a video game's typically predictable and exploitable AI. For example, in JA 2, all you had to do was let time pass and your own AI training (of citizens) could be exploited to nearly win the entire game by simply skipping moves.

how the hell does that support your original claim that "turn based game play is boring"?

If Torchlight doesn't constantly crash on you.

The development team seems fairly incompetent on fixing some major game breaking bugs.

Don't ride in a car, you might get in an accident. Don't buy a house, it might burn down. Don't buy an Internet connection, you might get hacked.

Wow... we care more about the well-being of our media corporations than our very own military. I think that shows which institution is now more powerful.

Don't you need a Korean Social Security number to sign up for most Korean games/web sites?

this game is destined to fail, just like Allen's last game. and just like that game it will be rescued by one of his associates at pennies on the dollar and continue to suck and lose money.

cancel your cable, buy a block account on Usenet and watch the same shows without the commercials at a tiny fraction of the price. Bonus: if you live on the west coast you can watch some shows before they air.

ETA: or just set up OTA if you can get a signal...

relax man, language has been evolving since day dot, expecting it to conform to righteous apprehension is futile. Interesting that your summary on mainstream phenomena sheds light on this point.

that is an elementary school grammar mistake, how can you possibly try to rationalize that without being sarcastic?

Anyone who believes the whole global warming/climate change hoax is a complete moron. I wish people would use some common sense.

Common sense: CO2 is a greenhouse gas which traps energy in the atmosphere. We created a new pathway in the carbon cycle whereby we pump huge amounts of it into the atmosphere. Therefore we are increasing the amount of energy trapped in the atmosphere.

Never mentioning that the Sun's variance in output and the earth's own fluctuations always dwarf man's acts.

You have no idea what you are talking about.

Let me get this straight... Publishers and devs should make as much money as possible, but consumers who try to get a good deal are "cheap asses"?

The sole purpose of the consumer class is to enrich the capitalist class. Getting good deals outside of the sanctioned channels (e.g. Walmart) goes strictly against your purpose and is deserving of ridicule and shame.

If I lose my car keys, I don't have to buy a new car. I just get new keys. Even if I'm leasing the car, I can still do this. Why should software be any different?
