what should the headline be to be correct (i.e. what should be in place of "its")?

It's actually correct as written. No need for a (sic). As the professor pointed out, the possessive pronoun its refers to object life: If we remove the prepositional phrase on other worlds, we get:

We can detect life through its vibrations.

Oops, that is right now isn't it. I removed the offending [sic]. Maybe I should've just added another to signify my incorrect incorrection?

hah, a bunch of nerds who don't mind conciseness in grammar. i like this place more and more everyday. makes me cringe when people whine about being corrected. they'd rather stay ignorant and smug than take the ego hit and learn the truth.

LastPlace here, thanks for the acknowledgements. I probably will not be playing next year since I could not enjoy games that went against my picks.

were you taking it that seriously? haha i just stared at each pick for about 5 seconds, made a gut choice and moved on. i didn't care enough to affect my sundays.

Just goes to show that the large, large, large majority of the game buying audience buys shit based off of hype, rather than actual game quality.

Which explains why Activision and their ilk spend 20 million developing a game, and 500 million marketing it. If they reversed it, few people would likely buy it.

Good job, general game audience.

Man Creston now you made me feel bad! I buy some good games too though, honest!

Nah, to each their own. There have been games that I thought were great that most everyone else thought were shit too. (I LOVED Oblivion, for example.) There are even some people that think X-Rebirth was great.

But Destiny seems to have been nowhere near worth the hype and attention it got (nor the review scores.) and yet the large majority of people who bought it did it because the advertisements seemed cool.

Which is sad, because it means the current status quo of "Produce mediocre game, hype the shit out of it to make it sell" won't even change.

guilty as charged =(

but moreso because bungie have earned a lot of currency (literal and metaphoric) with me from marathon up to halo. i implicitly trusted them to tell a great story. not anymore.

sony are a bunch of fools. NK has no way to touch us, and even if they did, i don't think even they would be insane enough to commit an act of war over a fucking joke.

i'll always insist on The Lion in Winter being the best xmas movie. as dysfunctional as it is, at its heart it's about a family coming together for christmas and being a family in the only way they know how. the fact that it's maybe the most intelligent script i've ever seen by a mile doesn't hurt either.

Well good thing they're only speaking for Wired, and not the rest of us.

Yeah, true, but I agree with them. What was the last good R Scott movie? American Gangster? And before that, Kingdom of Heaven (director's cut, of course). When was the last time he had two in a row? 15 years ago?

true his success rate is somewhat hit-and-miss, but for all his triumphs i give him the big benefit of the doubt. he just needs to be paired with a top rate screenwriter and it's gold. hasn't done that in quite a while. hell, just because he made bladerunner i'll always pay attention to what he's doing.

don't know why you bother man. fools like littleme aren't interested in the truth, for as much as the bleat and nag otherwise, or they would've done the due diligence and seen they have no rational leg to stand on.

It's funny that the other day the MPAA totally pissed Google off when Google was actually trying to help them.

typical no-talent hacks trying to justify their jobs. their brains don't have the processing power to comprehend the whole picture so they get lost in the minutiae and have no clue about what they're doing to us as a society. but that's been the entertainment industry's problem for a long time. they've been so used to staggering profits that their greed has essentially become unlimited, and they don't care who they squash in the course of chasing it whether it be innocent mistakes or the rights of a whole country. i'm pretty sure if left unchecked by the likes of google, they'd happily turn this into a police state where piracy became a capital crime.

In America it's risky to complain. It can go either the apologetic nice neighbor way or the weapon toting angry neighbor way.

yeah infotainment systems are pretty much superfluous these days with everyone having smart phones. someone should just invent a proper universal smartphone dock for a car. now THAT would sell like hotcakes.

Can we get that into the site title?
Hah! Best comment in an otherwise long and boring thread

haha seconded, although i find the bitterness here goes down a little more smoothly than the eye-watering chokejobs like youtube comments and *shudder* 4chan. like sipping an expensive whiskey instead of pugging off a handle of smirnoff.

Thank The Lord Cthulhu for the "not MMO" news on that Eidos Montreal blog. I think they need more blue filters though, JC Denton style.

ooh, that'd be an interesting thematic twist i think - the game switching filters to blue as the dentons are introduced into the game.
