Games journalism is no different than any other: it's been utterly destroyed by the internet.

Computer Gaming World had a "tschotske of the month" segment wherein they highlighted the little goodies publishers would send them in a shallow effort to curry favor. Thanks to the internet, there are a million and one voices on a million and one sites clambering like mad jackalopes at the foot of Mount Publisher for the merest scraps of content. The cost of maintaining quality and integrity in an organization is too great when its efforts are simply lost in the Sea of Mediocrity known as internet. Games journalism hasn't existed for years, it's been completely replaced by publishers' marketing divisions.

*ahem*

He's going the distance,
He's going for speed,
She's all alone, all alone, in her time of need...

In short, it's Trials Evolution + Rush 2049 + Halo + Tron

That's a little better...

See for yourself.

Doesn't matter, I'm on a strictly no EA diet for the foreseeable future.

"5 dollar noobs" are all that ever populated l4d2 online play. I loved the game to death, but it is virtually impossible to play without restricting it to friends who aren't going to rage or constantly do stupid shit.

I need to hibernate or something. All these kickstarting projects sound great and all, but I rather like having some actual material by which to follow a game.

Well there's a difference between being tired and being physically unable to stay awake. I fell victim to the later during numerous physics lectures from professor Ido Braslavsky... though I suppose I could blame it on his bizzare, hypnotic accent. My Scottish chem prof never put me to sleep, and that was a morning class.

I guess what I am saying is if all professors were Scottish and not Israeli, nobody would fall asleep in class. I demand a study to be done on this very subject, post haste.

trance >>> daft punk

Strangely enough, I find trance both perfect for chilling and working out. Not sure how that works out.

How'd you get through school like that? Between Diablo and Counter-Strike I had some awful days fighting to stay awake, but I (tried) to keep those to a minimum.

Ugh, sounds like Daft Punk. The music from that stupid launch trailer, sounding straight out of Drive, is more pleasing.

That's easy, they could simply have every action, including movement, cost a fixed amount of gold. If your character runs out of gold then he is unable to do anything unless you buy more with $.

Space Siege was one of the worst games ever made, which was pretty fucked up considering Dungeon Siege 2 was the fucking tits.

Reading scifi like a normal nerd now, but good lord is reading more fun than I remember.

Ahhh ha, yeah. I was telling my mother kids these days might actually like reading if given ACTUALLY GOOD BOOKS instead of Charles Fucking Dickens.

Have an ever-expanding volume of (mostly) sci fi, classic and modern, on my K3K.

Even assuming that all it took to get an internet connection was "a cable line" - which isn't true - that doesn't change the fact that population density is a huge factor when it comes to what areas get covered. In a lot of remote areas, there just aren't enough people to justify the cost of the hardware that would be required to allow high(er) speed access.

And how about completely urban areas where I still can't get a fiber connection? I live within 30 minutes of two major cities and I have access to slower, overpriced TWC or some podunk DSL connections.

But it is. Just like it is why, in general, public transportation is no useful in the US except for a few cities, where it is very useful in other countries.

Installing, operating and maintaining rail != laying down/hanging a cable line.

Telecoms have consistently been raising prices without increasing access or quality of service.

No offense, but can you honestly say you are less extreme or biased (simply on the opposite side of the spectrum) after objectively reading your own comments on religion?

Any and all organized religion is a cancer with no purpose practical or otherwise in any modern civilization. One could argue the merits of the various religious charities, but then one could as easily argue doing good not for the sake of one's eternal soul but for the sake of doing good.

I take special offense to Christianity itself because seldom do I ever see so many people as Christians claiming to be of, by, and for their religion while acting all but entirely against it. The core tenants of Christianity are compassion (like for GAY PEOPLE), forgiveness (like for CRIMINALS ON DEATH ROW), and charity (like WELFARE).
