...no genius, he's playing it on his computer that he can afford--he's not a lifeless turd like you living out of your mom's basement having no bills to pay and saving up $ for the best computer on the market because you don't spend $ on anything else because your mom covers it you fat ugly gamer lifer nerd whos a virgin to real life and the only power you have is typing on internet forums belittling others that don't spend $2,000 on a computer like you.

I take umbrage to this statement. Having a fair bit of disposable cash to do with as you please doesn't necessarily equate to a familial living arrangement, poor health, unfavorable aesthetics or reproductive inactivity.

It just makes you sound extremely, and pitifully, bitter toward those who have greater financial means than yourself. In fact, even the single sentence snark doesn't justify a run-on diatribe of that length.

Besides, Diablo 3 rules in co-op. In fact, it's probably the greatest multiplayer game ever invented.

Roses are red,
Violets are blue.
I hate <game name here>,
And you should, too.

You have a differing opinion?
We can not respectfully disagree.
I'll call you a cunt faced troll,
Because you are, obviously.

You'll question my intelligence,
you'll intimate that my father was my brother.
I'll call you a fanboy,
and tell you I fucked your mother.

Blue will roar in,
Holding banhammer high
Posts will be deleted
Some will wonder "Why?"

But after it's all over,
the bans and the culls,
We'll sit back and laugh
and say it's for "teh lulz".

But somewhere in the dark,
sits a nerd with a heaving chest.
As tears roll down his sallow face,
the Steam key of his favorite game will be pressed,
To his lips and so lovingly kissed.
Then it's back to the forums,
to nerdrage with an iron cyberfist!

Now, granted, like the psychosexual broad, Saints Row has a glaring problem (at least that I and a couple friends experienced). If you play co-op over Live, and your client gets desynced, your save game is seriously fucked.

The game doesn't use GFWL.

There's also Xbox Live, Jerykk.

I played all the GTAs, but never tried SR. I take it from the comments here, you guys'd recommend SR3? Looks like a fun game from gameplay vidoes on YouTube.

Yes.

I would recommend it in this way:

Playing any GTA past Vice City is like being tortured, violated and kept "company" by the single most boring, fat and dumpy broad to walk the earth. The kind of landwhale who would quote bad romcoms and chick flicks lines at you in every situation possible, no matter how tenuously relevant it may have been. After a short amount of time, you notice how shallow, lifeless and alarmingly stereotypical she is, even as she claims to be deep, compelling and free-spirited.

Saints Row, on the other hand, is like that crazy and hot broad you nailed in college. She was hellaciously fun at parties, would fuck your brains out six ways from Sunday when you called her at 3am on a Wednesday and never expected so much as a call the next morning.

Now, granted, like the psychosexual broad, Saints Row has a glaring problem (at least that I and a couple friends experienced). If you play co-op over Live, and your client gets desynced, your save game is seriously fucked.

I should make it clear: I love the Saints Row series like a fat dude loves Asian women. Grand Theft Auto is one of the most overhyped and ridiculously badly written game series of all time, in my opinion. Your mileage may vary. Try your waitress, tip the veal.

Maybe it was a late night due to Smoking and then, after that, Blue was Sunny for a while until he eventually Snore at 4am. He woke up Confused , stumbled toward his desk and began to Computer .

I have had morning-afters like that.

Geez, from the Total Biscuit vid, by the Valve doctrine of game development and storytelling, then the developers are guilty of cutscene crimes on the order of capital offenses and deserving exile.

At the very least, they deserve prison-style anal violation and then exile from the tribe.

What if I just stopped buying games? No, I don't mean switching to exclusively pirating them. I mean just stopped being a customer altogether.

I know that I would find a new hobby or devote more time to a preexisting one but I don't think it would do anything positive to change this behavior of "stick it to the customer at all costs".

Perhaps the only real solution is piracy,

I know what happened, people who have no clue of the English language chose 3 words they think we like for the name.

Robots, drinking and pornography.

I'm not sure on the order or if any are to relate...

This will do well.


Their target market is clearly bending units.



I disagree, clearly it's for the pusher robots.

UI looks busy and lame. I'd expect this from an early 2000s era game ut not in a modern title.

I dislike that I am an AT&T customer.

Unfortunately, where I live, they are pretty much the only game in town if you want more than one bar of Edge service.

Yes.

At first, after reading that article, I thought much same as most people. My thought was "Wow, you are one technologically idiosyncratic motherfucker". Then I sat back and thought about the last time I had to burn or use an actual disc. I was forced to the last time I used TrueCrypt to encrypt a drive. A process that could easily be done to a USB stick.

I don't install my OS from a disc, I use RIS. Even then, if you can't or don't want to use RIS there are products like Clonezilla which make your installation and initial setup headaches go away. Hell, I don't get my initial installation of Windows from a DVD. I get it as an img file from Microsoft that I mount through Daemon Tools Lite and then copy to a USB stick to install from to create my image. This saves me hundreds of real hours every year. Also, my system is back up and running in less than 20 minutes with drivers and most commonly used apps fully installed.

Even moving data from one machine to another no longer requires anything other than a USB stick as every modern OS has USB support installed right out of the box. Unlike discs, USB sticks don't degrade after a relatively short period of time. Also, I can fit, potentially, 128GB on a single USB stick.

How do we get patches, drivers and software like VLC? We download them from the internet.

If we think about music, how many of us actually buy music on CDs anymore? I can't tell you what the last actual disc I purchased was, it's been years. I download everything musical now as digital goods. I don't even use optical media in my vehicle. I can either plug a storage device directly in to the USB port on the dash or stream via bluetooth from my phone.

The sole holdout is video because the MPAA and studios are clawing tooth and nail to hold on to a dead business model. However, I am reasonably sure that we'll see movies and TV shows become digital goods not too far in the future. Even so, we can get our hands on what we want right now in both legal and ethically questionable ways.

Even long term storage isn't necessarily a problem. Despite the short term spike in hard drive prices, drives were at the point where you could buy 2TB drives for less than a hundred bucks. Good ones, too. It's affordable enough now to setup a home NAS for backup and most mid to high end motherboards support RAID.

As much as we may want to scoff...the author is right. The optical disc is a dying technology. Now whether that justifies Microsoft's decision and whether their announcement is truthful is another discussion.

In the screenshot and link to the Game Informer article, the people's faces all have this either claymation like or melted plastic look to them. It's creepy and makes me want to not look at any more press material.

Like clowns wearing gas masks and trying to sell laundry detergent.

THQ owns the rights to Homeworld now.

In fact, there was an article here some months back discussing the very same acquisition and the future of Homeworld 3.
