Uh huh. And why is it the FCC's job to ban this? If there's no technical interference issue, it shouldn't be banned by the FCC. Period. The airlines are the ones who should make this policy decision, and if you don't like their policy you can complain to them and/or fly on a different airline.

I agree. I had sworn off flying long ago anyway. Unless I need to go overseas (something I never foresee ever happening) I will drive there.

Well, if an ISP does something you don't like you can always just get internet access from a competitor. Except, I guess, in almost all of non-urban settings where we either don't have a choice or places have actually outright purchased a monopoly on broadband in those areas.

That's pretty much how it is here. You can have Cox high speed, or various DSL providers. Yea for choice!


Don't forget uber slow Satellite! It's at least 20 times faster than dial-up and more expensive than cable! Clap

Clancy's writing went a bit off the rails later in his career imo. I didn't like his last several books nearly as much as his earlier works. Judging by the customer ratings on Amazon, I am not the only one. You can tell generally tell if a Clancy book is earlier or later in his career by its rating alone. Later books don't generally review as well as earlier ones. Still sad he is gone - he was a creative and foresightful fellow.

I have no interest in this but it made me think - what was the point of making it third-person? Haven't all the Ghost Recon games been FPS except for that one that was console-only?

On a side note, while I really like the original, I hated the fact that you couldn't see your weapon. It just felt weird.

Nope. They earned every bit of negativity they get...

Yep. EA has been given their share of "breaks" by me and presumably others and has LONG since used them all up by continuing to do business like greed-driven assholes. Until they start treating their customers (and potential customers) better as far as I'm concerned they deserve every ounce of hate that comes there way.

I think so. And to the embarrassingly bad trolling attempt by Talisorn I think they would probably say "Fail troll is fail" or something like that, wouldn't they? Or maybe a "derp derp" or whatever?

Haha yeah, good luck with that. Gave up on Martin a long time ago, guy has terrible work habits. Blogs a billion times about football, pizza and attending conventions but takes 5 years to finish a book.

No one was as bad as Robert Jordan. He was just out of control. He kept padding his Wheel series with tons upon tons of fluff. Entire books were written where virtually nothing happened. I gave up in disgust after the ninth book. If I had to read about one more paragraph about pointless and utterly meaningless plotlines with pointless, ancillary people... Or had to sit through just one more never-ending sequence where two of his ridiculously caricatured female characters had a battle of wits to see who could be the bigger cunt...ARGH! I have never wasted so much time turning pages wishing something - ANYTHING! - interesting would happen. He destroyed an extremely promising series; the ending of the sixth book was possibly the best, most satisfying ending to a book I had ever read. Even then, if he cut out the meaningless, boring parts ,that really should have been the ending of the FOURTH book.

This can't be right. Being online is absolutely essential for the game to work.There's just NO WAY Simcity can run without it. Rolleyes Jesus tap-dancing Christ, EA is run by blithering morons.

I was thrilled to see the Colts get clobbered. I think they are a good team but my ex-boss whom I hate more than almost any human being on the planet is a huge Colts fan. I'm not above pettiness when it's so satisfying!

Well, I'm looking forward to Might and Magic, even if it does sort of look 10 years old. I recall some pretty epic battles in the last one.

Yeah - from the preview it doesn't look like anything revolutionary is going on but the series always worked for me as it was so no biggie.

Insert obligatory "Go fuck yourself" here.

Thanks for doing that so I don't have to say it myself! EA just continues to boggle the mind with their lunacy. Why do gamers continue to allow themselves to be treated like this?

My kids thought it looked super cool, they loved the cyborg ninja thing. But they were wondering why my character (Raiden) was wearing high heels. I told them this game was from Japan and boys in Japan are weird.

Amazon worthy review there!


LOL!

It's been so long since the Metal Gear franchise has been on PC that I was considering buying this. But the online requirement wasn't intended? Really? "Stealthily snuck on there" indeed! Since the bastards apparently tried to sneak in always-on DRM, it looks like I won't be getting it until it's 5 bucks on a sale.

No offence, but you missed my point. In ANY Aliens game done before, there is always slow times filled with horror moments, and as well action times.

The action in the first (and best) movie was different from the sequel though. The original was far and away the scariest, and all the action was a terrifying culmination of the supremely crafted tension leading up to it. It also consisted only of violence inflicted by the Alien upon the hapless crew, yet it remains one of THE great sci-fi movies of all time. I don't want cannon-fodder aliens; that shit is old hat by now after tons of games. I want to feel the tension and the terror of the first 'Alien', and this game is looking to be EXACTLY what those of us who groan at yet another gung-ho-space-marine-with-a-pulse-rifle-gunning-down-aliens-by-the-truckload game have been wanting since FOREVER. I'll be tuning out the haters on this one.

The lone person against a Predator in a PC game... a single Predator imho WOULD work. Because in the movie it works great... albeit Arny had some disposable supporting actors. In Alien, it was not just Ripley. It was a whole crew who had no clue wtf they were up against.

I am not attracted to the idea concept of 1 lone player... a girl character which I loath playing. Think NOLF here. Not to mention Ripleys daughter is as far from canon as you can get. And then you get a what? A wrench?

The only thing I do like is the environment visuals. To me the visuals/sounds/lighting stick out as being very well recreated. But no way am I interested in playing hide and seek with a single Alien for 10+ hours.

I am glad they are creating a game that THEY wanna play. Maybe someday a Dev Team will come along and make the Alien/Predator PC experience, that "I" wanna play.

Your game could turn out awesome, no doubt. But first they need to resurrect the brand. It has been tarnished by mediocre/bad movies and mediocre/bad games for so long, that can only happen I think after some good products in the universe, and this looks like a definite start as long as they don't screw it up.

As for Ripley's daughter not being canon, she is mentioned in the extended cut of Aliens. Ripley is crying over a picture of her after she is told by Burke that she (her daughter) died years before while Ripley was in cryosleep. It was actually an important scene - it shed light on just why Ripley was so dead-set on saving Newt in the second film. I surprised it got cut from the theatrical version. Anyway, it would make sense that she might go on a search mission to find out what happened to her mother's ship.

After seeing this and reading the PC Gamer preview Blue posted today all I can do is try to curb my unabashed excitement with the mantra "this can still suck. This can still SUCK!" But damn if they aren't headed in EXACTLY the right direction so far. Just imagine... an 'Alien' being scary again! Then imagine more... What if this began a string of great new Alien movies? In a word, A-W-E-S-O-M-E!!!!
