Their other example of good writing is Iron Man. I think that pretty much sums it up.

(which seems to be the popular thing to do nowadays, along with bashing Christians and Jews)...

Every day I weep for the poor, oppressed American Christians. They are constantly under attack from the giant, powerful atheist lobby. Every day Christianity becomes increasingly marginalized in American society. At least, that's what I heard on The 700 Club last night.

The social "scientists" doing research on video games are as much scientists as the sandwich "artists" at Subway are artists.

Better graphics (even at low settings)

No way. The low-res textures are far worse than the console textures, and if you don't turn on the blur you get to see the shadow dithering that looks like something out of 1996.

The days of grinding thousands of mobs over and over to level/skill up are over.

Not as long as there are nerdy 14-year-olds with Mom's credit card and no real obligations or social lives.

Remember since GTA1 you could find vans that provided you RC car missions that usually ended in you blowing someone up?

Yeah, there's all sorts of stuff from the old GTA games that didn't make it into GTA4. It's obvious that Rockstar expended more effort on the graphics and sound than the actual game itself.

haha, what a worthless tax break. Good luck competing with established game dev centers like TX, CA and WA...

Another patch, and people are still having serious issues with the game.

This game will never be fixed. It's all part of the plan to discredit the PC as a gaming platform.

Hitting "p" adds this to the PC release, but it honestly looks worse than the jaggies.

Maybe for some people it does, but on my system it looks better (in my opinion). The game has z-fighting on my system and the blur does an OK job at making it less noticeable. Also right now I only have 256 MB VRAM so I'm limited to 1024x768 (not much longer until my 1 GB Radeon 4850 gets here). Plus with that little VRAM, all the textures are washed out anyway so it doesn't change much.

I don't believe it was the economy but rather poor, no make that very poor management, that brought down CC.

Poor management probably helped, but retail is getting destroyed right now. Circuit City isn't the only big-box retailer that has closed in the last few months, and it's not going to be the last.

I love it when Blue talks about the weather. All the armchair climatologists on this site come out to express how ignorant they are.

Sure they have. Including this on. The only Wright in the NY state assembly is Keith L.T. Wright. Who is a democrat.

I think he was being sarcastic. (the poster, that is)

Game journalism makes me wanna vomit.

Even sports journalism is more respectable than game journalism...

Yeah, ever since Wired joined the church of Global Warming and began preaching it has sucked.

AL GORE ROBBLE ROBBLE ROBBLE

So are you one of those people who think the greenhouse effect doesn't exist, or are you more sophisticated than that?

I tried using my gamepad (Saitek P880) with GTA 4 after the patch. The camera gets stuck at Niko's feet looking upwards. Did they even test this patch?

Some really ridiculous statements here. Those making the corrupt charge, how about some proof? You can't because you have none.

The whole developer-guild collusion scandal brings their reputation into question. I can't say whether this bug has anything to do with their demonstrated corruption, but ultimately it doesn't matter. CCP have already proved they are not to be trusted.

No, it's my honest opinion, formed from the way CCP have conducted themselves over the years. Not only that, but it's an opinion that I share with many others here. Just because someone says something you disagree with doesn't make them a troll.

Space Rangers 2 is a decent open-world space trading-combat game. It's only 2-D though, and the translation from the Russian is a bit rough around the edges... For $4 though, it's definitely worth it.

Why do people always complain about what other's do with their money? I think some people just enjoy being the turd in everyone else's punchbowl.

That's the Internet for you...
