I would be excited but new games are so poor these days that it's hard to get excited over anything...

News Comments > Pediatricians' Game Concerns
12. Re: Pediatricians' Game Concerns Oct 25, 2009, 16:49 dubfanatic
 
American Academy of Pediatrics is a scientific organization right?

No, it's a trade organization. This means they aren't above putting out some shitty, barrel-scraping literature review that fails to make a distinction between correlation and causation.

ETA: Kinda sad that only one other poster has mentioned this so far. Conflating correlation and causation is how these people make their living.

News Comments > "Assassin" Trademarked
8. Re: Oct 25, 2009, 16:24 dubfanatic
 
So anyone making an MMO or Multiplayer game in general cant use "Assassin". Movies can still use it, single player games can still use it, television shows can still use it. You can still say it. =)

No they can't. Read that blurb more carefully.

So, maybe we should just hug trees and eat grass and flowers instead? There's nothing wrong with eating meat, just be selective and prepared to pay more for GOOD meat and meat by-products. Unless you plan on eating as much roughage as a cow you're going to end up iron and protein deficient forgoing meat.

yes either we eat red meat all day every day for every meal, or we eat NO meat. THERE IS NO MIDDLE GROUND

I think I'm finally going to pull the trigger on Civ IV. Is Colonization any good?

There is only one winning condition, so there is really only one winning strategy. It's a little more satisfying to play since the patch but it's still nowhere near as compelling as Beyond the Sword.

LOL at those nerds on Ars defending commercial software pirates. That shit is why I stopped reading Slashdot. Looks like I'll have to stop reading Ars too.

Usenet is still the best. Yeah, there's lots of viruses and porn, but that's why you use an indexing site like Newzbin. Nobody downloads headers anymore (especially with the 1yr+ retention providers like Newshosting have now)

$10.00 is less than I spend on a lunch out of the office. In fact it's a lot less.

Where I live $10 can feed a person for a week, so L4D is worth less than that to me.

Yeah I get so pissed off when I see those road projects with "YOUR TAX DOLLARS AT WORK" signs. How do I know they aren't just going to demolish the project a year later out of spite? I want to build my OWN roads damn it.

News Comments > The Incredible Machine Series Bought, Reissued
13. Re: Game Reviews Oct 1, 2009, 16:37 dubfanatic
 
GOG were forced to remove the Codemasters racing games because of licensing agreements beyond their control. In other cases where they were forced to stop selling games, they kept the game up for download for customers. Blaming GOG for that is silly. I would bet GOG will never release a game with expiring license agreements ever again because of the misunderstanding it caused.

It took me about 2 minutes from starting Steam to the download starting, then when it started it proceeded at my connection's full speed.

Oh and I'm sure this is totally about principles, NOT about his own political beliefs conflicting with the Beck-induced boycott of Fox News. If Olbermann or Maddow said something that caused a boycott of MSNBC, why, he'd be the FIRST to show up!

UPS has the right to not support the ravings of a lunatic. Wardell has the right to not support UPS for doing so. And I have the right to not support Wardell for indirectly supporting the ravings of a lunatic.

I was probably going to buy Elemental eventually but I prefer to support apolitical businesses.

And I'm really tired of all the Civ IV Complete sales that AREN'T Civ IV Complete.

Yeah that's weird, the description just says it includes Civ4+Warlords. No mention of Beyond the Sword. I got Civ IV Complete from GamersGate when it was on sale a few weeks back, and it was the real deal.
