News Comments > Kanye West to Headline Call of Duty XP

To prove a point you litter your explanation with more slurs?

And "some of my best friends are {fill in the blank}" is such a cliche of bigotry it's not even worth addressing.

Call your friends what you want, but please don't use that language here...

not a fan of eddie murphy, blue? or SNL? or are you just hypersensitive because of white guilt? some sort of combo? or did you just want to be a stuck-up prick for the hell of it?

History has demonstrated that not nipping racially inflammatory commentary in the bud just leads to things going downhill quite rapidly.

try growing a sense of humor at some point, it lowers stress

I like to think I actually have a pretty well-developed sense of humor. I guess I'm wrong, as I didn't see how that brief out of context clip that tried to make this a joke about Kanye's race was so funny and not at all racist.

Warmest regards,
The stuck-up prick.

Sigh, Blue. It's all about context man. And sometimes you just miss it.

Using a homophobic slur as a pejorative is a matter of context, huh? Yeah, I guess I missed that...

I think Valve fixed it for HL, but it had a different movement related oddity: Hugging the walls by running forwards and towards the wall gave you extra speed.
That his was also present in Doom. With wallrunning, which, IIRC only worked on north- and eastbound walls, you could actually reach speeds high enough to outrun your own rockets.

http://www.bluesnews.com/doomtips/#THE%20WALL%20RUN

THE WALL RUN
One of the buggiest of the Doom bugs. By strafe running along a wall from South to North (North is up on the map), you can achieve a speed best described as ridiculous. Wall running is allegedly 300% faster than strafe-running, which is 44% faster than running, which would be, um,...well, you get the idea. It's fast.

Odd, I downloaded the demo last week on PSN. Still haven't tried it, but the demo is already out.

Not to mention, I could have sworn I saw Bet playing this demo on Steam a couple days ago too.

There were ways to get early access:

For those that missed the trailer you can find it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dj4WiMV5ijQ

My thoughts? Grey, it's the new brown!

That trailer is still just as no longer available as it was when I mentioned it in the story.

Actually, I manage my GERD the same way: I don't eat after 2 or 3, and I don't drink soda anymore (although beer is no problem for some reason).

Glad to hear that it's not a problem anymore! When it hits me it's extremely painful.

It rarely caused me serious pain, maybe because I'm kind of stupidly stoical, but it was causing me to lose my voice (I actually had LPRD).

I was extremely happy to find this way to work around it, because I hated the idea of having to take Protonix for the rest of my life.

Onlive? Oooo, I'm going to play that when I get home! NO! Wait, I can play it right here at work!!! MUAHAHAHAHAH.
$50 for a game that requires the internet and you will never physically own. Net alone zero config options graphically.

Maybe if it was $25. But no way in hell for the same price as a boxed version.

Did you read the story? The retail version includes OnLive access.

Yea I am able to get to Blues again! Kate at Quadranet is da bomb! She got this fixed in no time. Blue ignore the email I sent to you earlier this evening.

Since Friday I have not been able to get to the site without using a proxy. Charter said they could not fix the problem so I sent a message to Quadranet and they fixed it in a matter of minutes.

Ah, that's good to hear. I forwarded your mail to Frans to ask if this was a problem for Quadranet's attention, but obviously it was.

Sorry about the problems. Welcome back.

Did you get a chance to try a Sweetwater in Atlanta?

No. I would have rather tried that, in spite of the whole 420 beer thing seeming like a childish gimmick.

There was just a very strong desire to see my reaction to the "Death" wings. I explained that if these were sold off the menu to the general public without giving you a free t-shirt or something similar for finishing them, it was extremely unlikely they'd be too hot for my tastes, but I guess they thought I was delusional.

On the other hand, I had never thought of adding cracked pepper to the wing sauce the way they did, which was a neat touch, and definitely something I will add to my recipe. They also had draught coke with real sugar, so both of those elements made it worthwhile.

Although, speaking from direct experience, Notch should be very greatful that tokay and TheRomero are not under the Zenimax umbrella...eh, Blue?

^D^

Oh yeah, big time. They were both terrors, tokay in particular... destroying all comers in a 3" x 3" window. Just amazing. If he was involved, "Scrolls" would end up being renamed something like "Thank You American, Can I have Another?"

Yeah, that's the reason.

I didn't reply because the site was non-responsive for me earleir, so I needed to make sure there wasn't some new news like it being out of "beta" or something.

On that last one, I'd say more along the lines of "Creepy Bungie employee routinely carries handgun and handcuffs for some reason..."

That was odd to say the least. There's also this:

The confrontation resulted in both men drawing guns and one being shot by the other.

Which had me checking the byline to see if this all took place in Deadwood.

Assassin wrote on Aug 12, 2011, 12:29:
Stephen, I remember you had a certain policy regarding certain sites. Why did you changed your mind?

To clarify your question to others, the policy you refer to was to avoid linking to sites that stole things.

My primarily reason for scrapping that policy was to provide the best possible service to the readers here. The most important thing is to offer the information and resources they are looking for, and trying to find another source for a story to avoid linking to the original would impede that, and on some level would put me in the same dishonest boat as them. Likewise, that would also obviously be the case if I started stealing the stories outright in retribution.

On an unrelated point, I actually began to rethink this years ago when a the founder of another gaming site that was at the top of my shit list for stealing stories died. Not that it changed my perspective on any of his bad behavior, but it did make me think about bearing grudges, and how short life is to get too caught up in such things. Oddly, he was the second game news dude who stole a lot to die young, but I think it's reasonable to call this an odd coincidence, rather than karma, as I don't think failing to attribute a gaming news source is a capital offense.

Apologies for not naming names, but I feel like I'm already playing in the mud in hashing through all this.
