Cos you play console games sitting on the floor or slouched in a bigcomfy(tm) chair. Not on your Aeron at your desk, having told your PA to hold your calls for an hour.

But yeah if the PS3 goes hog wild with M+KB support for games they may just have made me a potential buyer, and I fucking hate Sony. Stupidest thing MS did was step away from M+KB support on the 360 because they were so scared people would say it's just a PC in wolf's clothing.

this shit is going to rival Molyneaux for "bullshit hype" factor

the game is fucking retarded IMO


Hey, quit that fence-sitting and tell us what you think.

Can't say I've seen anything that grabs me about Spore either but I never even tried the Sims so maybe I've missed out on a great game. I did borrow Singles for a day once though. sweet cheeses...

He's right, you know. Not about the compatible TVs. I don't know where that one came from. But the games really aren't worth shit except for nostalgia reasons. Which may be enough.

However, once Steam started charging more for games than I can pay at retail and which I don't have to wait a couple of months to get in the UK then I went off them pretty quick. By then I'd accumulated a couple of hundred dollars worth of games on my account and it occured to me that that was quite an investment in games that I couldn't even lend out or sell. And I was a big advocate of Steam originally.

CHUD.com?

Now if only they'd make a CHUD film. Oh...

Nick - your game-to-movie pick is doomed. This movie will "suck ass", as the young kids say. But I assume you'll be picking up a cheque regardless so who gives a fuck, right?

I have higher hopes for Boll's Dungeon Siege movie (a game so disappointing the movie has galvanised my hopes for the franchise.) than I do for a JA game. And I've never even played a JA game. I was on a gaming hiatus (we were on a BREAK!) when it came out so it's not even as if I'm emotionally invested in the product. I'm just really confident that games-to-movies suck. Apart from Bloodrayne. It had Terminator boobs.

Ah.. a sequel to Missing Since January (or In Memoriam, as I knew it.)

MSJ/IM was a great little game until I got stuck at a fucking demented hand/eye coordination puzzle.

"the EFF and other organizations Are fighting back, but the Universities themselves never will because most rely on money from corporations to stay in business.

The real hope has to come from students themselves, to realize they must band together and Fight Back."

Unless they want to go on to work for those corporations. In fact it's probably true to say that a lot of those **AA drones dubbed a tape or two back in the day. They didn't think it was wrong at the time but now they're getting paid to get outraged by P2P. The morality of students (or the rest of us) hasn't changed but the ease of infringement has. They're years behind the loop in technology so all they can do is wield the familiar old Hammer Of Litigation to smack the students about (and the students are easy targets because of their housing blocks and on site internet connections). Nobody is really in the right here but I believe that if you're going to steal stuff off the Internet you should call it like it is and be prepared to pay the fine if you do the crime. I steal the odd TV show off BT but I'm not a freedom fighter I'm just impatient and cheap. If the letter comes asking for a settlement I'd do the righteous thing and fish a bundle of crisp hundreds out my back pocket and mail it to them.

she seems to have been transported several centuries back and landed in the middle of an age ruled by pirates and buccaneers.

Buccaneers are pirates.

You forgot to mention how irritating the voices were in Aftermath. Every time a squad member finished their action they said the same thing. Again and again and again.

I still have Aftershock to play but I think the tutorial has turned me off it.

This smacks of the Fallout MMO that's in development. In my opinion a few people are going to get a good wage for a couple of years and fail to produce a game anyone will want to play.

What ever happened to those Phantom guys?

7. Re: Any Chance Feb 22, 2007, 15:32 Awesome Spume
 
to be honest, these days, when I see that a game has been targeted at consoles + PC, I just ignore it. Too many shoddy PC ports, with substandard graphics, appalling control schemes and sod-all modability means they just aren't worth my time. Increasingly I tend towards obscure, indie developed PC only games.

Yeah. And fuck those bastards that try to force MOVING PICTURES on us. Those sonsabitches will have us playing in 3D next.

Different markets. Steam may not make sense in the US but apparently it's good value in Australia. In the UK I think it's a toss-up depending on the game but I'm disinclined to buy anymore games off Steam unless it isn't actually available locally (like Space Empires 5 - which is still a pretty crappy single player experience but getting better with every patch. Might be worth playing a year after launch).

Hardcore gamers are bound to be in the decline. Point me at the hardcore jigsaw players, or radio listeners or backyard hot-tubbers compared with now and thirty years after invention. Soon games will be like TV or books or bowling - something a lot of people do without really thinking about how weird it is to be doing it.

I don't think it's something to worry about because there are still hardcore books, TV and games and there always will be as long as there is a niche to be served that has money to pay. As the market expands so do the number of people in the niche so the money pool gets bigger.

You want a real sharp comparison just look at fetish. Statistically nobody you know is a regular at a fetish club or store but it's still a multibillion dollar industry worldwide.

There. Added.

BAGHDAD, Iraq - Gunmen wearing Iraqi army uniforms seized an Iranian diplomat as he drove through central Baghdad, officials said Tuesday.
Iran said it held the United States responsible for the diplomat's "safety and life."

Whatever. I hope they execute him - then maybe Iran will open their eyes.


Nice. So you support terrorism now?
