You know what I miss whenever there's a story like this? A good old crazy rant from Jack Thompson! The man was an endless supply of laughs...

But, so far as I've seen, only the Humble Bundle is still making sure all the games support Linux... These other knock-off bundles seem to be mostly Windows only (maybe a few Mac games, too)... So, only the Humble folks get my money...

I'm not entirely sure why, since even the BSA opposes SOPA as it is, now...

hmm, never played any of the Saints Row games as they just looked like GTA clones. I might check this game out since the feedback has been generally positive.

I wasn't impressed at all with either of the previous SR games... There were a few fun bits in SR2, but all in all, I just didn't enjoy playing it most of the time... So, I was firmly committed to NOT buying SR3... Until I kept hearing all these great things about it! So, now I'm breaking down and buying the damn thing... Ugh...

it was the usual repetitive Rockstar "gameplay"

Some of us really, really like that usual Rockstar gameplay...

Wouldn't it be better for your friends to buy it on PC? That way, everyone can play the best version of the game.

Some of us don't have Windows PCs (or Macs), or rigs beefy enough to be suitable for gaming on... Unless Valve is also going to surprise anounce Linux steam and Portal 2, my only viable choice for playing is Xbox360... (Even then, I'm not sure my old Linux PC would be up to the challenge of handling a modern game like that, anyway... Its main use is as a workstation; I write Linux/Unix code for a living...)

I love when they covered the Taliban ... In each one of those cases, it was true to the game and we were trying to do something creatively. ... I felt we could stand up and defend what we did and be aggressive about it and be proud of it.

Now, wait just a minute... Am I misremembering, or didn't EA cave in on the Taliban thing, and ultimately censor its own game?? If so, that takes a lot of balls to bring that up as a moment to be proud of...

News Comments > 3D DOOM Movie Reboot?
46. Re: 3D DOOM Movie Reboot? Mar 10, 2011, 06:49 Agrajag
 
I still haven't seen DOOM movie. I heard it really sucks.

Am I the only one who didn't totally loathe the Doom movie? Sure, I hated the fact that they wimped out on the demons from hell bit and made them virus-based mutations of some sort... But, other than that, I thought it wasn't horrible for what it was: a brainless action flick... *shrug* Maybe it's just me... But, I still actually rewatch the stupid thing from time to time... I love the first-person sequence, and I love when Johnson finally gets the BFG and says "Big. Fucking. Gun."... ;-)

Ive never heard pwn being pronounced as pween. It sounds rediculous and makes no sense whatsoever.

Yeah, that was originally sort of the point: to make a joke of it...

I'm pretty sure it was right here on Blues News ages ago where someone (loonyboi, maybe?) invented the "pween" pronunciation, and I've always used it since, just because it's amusing and silly... But, I'll be damned if I can find any trace of such a post using either the search functionality here or Google with "site:www.bluesnews.com"... So, maybe I hallucinated the whole thing? ;-) Any other old-timers who have been here since nearly the beginning remember such a thing, or have I just become senile?

This reminds me of "pwn", which I recall used to be pronounced "pween" back in the day, but now everyone pronounces as "pown" or "pawn" instead for some bizarre reason...

News Comments > Coulton's Portal 2 Theme Song
14. Re: Coulton's Portal 2 Theme Song Jan 16, 2011, 10:33 Agrajag
 
I've heard Portal described as an FPS before, which is completely wrong. A shooter revolves around shooting enemies. You don't shoot any enemies in Portal.

True, it's not an FPS, either... It's really hard to peg its genre exactly, other than "puzzle", which is rather vague... First person puzzler? I don't know... Maybe it's just me, but when I hear "platformer", I immediately think of stuff like Super Mario Brothers: 2D left/right scrolling, involving lots of hopping around, precisely timed jumps, etc... Like I say, there's a BIT of that in Portal, so I can see how someone might draw the connection... But, it's just SO much more than that, on the whole... There were very few sections of Portal that felt like they relied on super fast hand-eye coordination and timing skills, as are typically required for most platformers... (About the closest I can think of is that one section where you're bouncing up and down between platforms of varying heights, needing to move the portal ends between them to proceed, and finally onto an angled one to reach the exit... That required a bit of good timing to get right...) Most of the time, it just required more brains than anything else, to figure out just WTF you needed to do, and not so much super-great skills to actually do it...

Wait, "platformer"?! I don't think I've ever heard anyone call Portal that before... I suppose it does sorta share some elements of one, but it just sounds utterly wrong to call it one, for some reason...

Well, that was surprisingly short... Once I got to Mexico, I expected at least as many missions as there were prior to that in America, but there sure didn't seem to be... I ended up unwittingly going into the end-game without even realizing it was the final mission, leaving several towns in Mexico un-saved... Thankfully, you get to continue after the "end"... (And, it's fairly clever/amusing how they handle that...) Still, it was all pretty fun... Not nearly on the same level as the main game, though... But, definitely well worth playing, if for no other reason than seeing (spoiler) Herbert Moon get eaten... ("You can't eat me, I'm Herbert Mooooooon!!" ;-)) (/spoiler)

so it doesn't really matter what the jury awards as damages

Where the hell are they finding these juries that are happy to go along with these RIAA/MPAA scumbags, anyway?? If I were on that jury, I'd say the songs are worth about $0.99 a copy, at best, and calculate from that, instead of crazy RIAA math... Or, if we're forced to only use their wacky numbers somehow, I'd simply acquit... Fuck them... I'm all for copyright protection (I write software for a living), but this insane overkill of million dollar fines is the equivilent of killing mosquitoes with a nuclear bomb... If they were going after assholes pressing and selling knock-off CDs or something, sure I could see the penalties being justified... But, someone in their home downloading (and probably not even realizing they're also technically 'uploading') a handful of songs off the Net, making no money off the venture? It's just plain crazy to treat them the same way... Especially since you're undoubtedly pissing off and losing a customer (probably several, including her supportive family and friends) in the process... It's just shooting yourself in the foot, and ultimately not helping in any way...

as this already happens with porn etc.

Etc.? What else is there other than porn that the government denies full first ammendment protection to? Christ, just recently, the Supreme Court overturned a law against crush videos, of people torturing and killing actual living animals, because doing so violated the first ammendment... If that disgusting shit is protected, violent video games sure as hell should be...

The only reason they went that way on porn is because we're still mostly a bunch of repressed puritans over here, who view sex and nudity as naughty and evil and corrupting... We've never had that view on violence, however... We like our violence...

Ok, I'm a little further along now, and I already see that at least SOME items are going to be useful for various things... Cool... I just wondered how it was going to work without being able to sell them at shops now, but I see now they've got some kind of plans for using them, anyway...

Just got the blunderbuss... That's bad-ass! And, you get to make your own ammo from dead zombie parts!

30. Undead Nightmare Oct 31, 2010, 11:19 Agrajag
 
Anyone playing Undead Nightmare? I just started, and it's pretty damn cool so far... But, given that all the shops seem to be closed (even when you clean out the zombies from a town), I'm just wondering if there's any point at all to collecting stuff like plants and animal parts anymore? Will I be able to sell/trade them for ammo at some point, or am I just wasting my time (and risking zombie attack) by stopping to pick flowers and loot/skin dead animals? (On a side note, I am glad they cut the overly long skinning animation, and now just treat skinning an animal like looting a corpse...)

Any gamers that don't know how to get to Hell on an expedited basis, let me know, and I'll send along the cheat code to get there more quickly

Is that some kind of lame-ass death threat, or something? I think the guy is just a couple steps short of suicide-bombing Gamestops soon!

Care to educate us on what freedom used to mean?

I was always told that it was just another word for nothing left to lose... ;-)

And, to the troll: I assume you oppose all forms of fantasy role-playing where one takes on the role of someone evil as well? No cops and robbers, unless everyone is a cop? No D&D unless everyone is aligned good? No civil war reenactments unless everyone is North? No WW2 movies, because some actors would need to portray Nazis? In fact, lets just get rid of history books entirely, because people might read about bad people and then could possibly imagine being those bad people, right? People like you disgust me... You don't belong in this country, because you obviously don't understand a thing about what makes it great... And, you're always the sort that are waving flags and pretending to be patriotic, too... (Yeah, I know, he's probably just a pathetic troll, but there really are idiots like him in real life...)
