News Comments > No Shooting Civilians in Battlefield 3

I won't buy an FPS that does not allow me to kill every man, woman and child I see.

I admit I get the giggles when I wing little Timmy and I watch him crawl down an alley, crying for his Mommy.

Then, if I am patient, Mommy shows up and then POP POP, two for one special!

Did anyone else have the problem in Shanghai were the black market guy wouldn't even talk to you?

No dialog at all. The UI would light up to hit E, I'd do so, his head would twitch to the left for a second and that's that.

Random comments and ad hominem attack

Refinements really have nothing to do with the point that, unlike Jobs, Ford founded an entire industry and revolutionized other industries with his designs. Assembly line driven mass production, for example.

I can't be bitter about something I am not personally involved with. Jobs is a salesman and that's that. The way he pushes sales is very much akin to used car salesmen and snake oil salesmen. Just as Ballmer is a belligerent, sweaty, loud bully. Ever wonder why Sinofsky is now the public face of Windows development?

I'm sorry if you think I somehow shat in your Apple flavored kool-aid.

1. Steve Jobs Was 'Henry Ford' of The Computer Industry. Aug 25, 2011, 22:55 Burrito of Peace
 
Bullshit. That easily belongs to Robert Noyce or, Hell, most of that team from Fairchild Semiconductor.

Henry Ford actually designed, built and mss produced something, personally, and was an engineer his entire life. Steve Jobs soldered a couple of components on a bread board in comparison.

Steve Jobs is a slick used-car and snake oil salesman. He's good at selling the idea that you "need" iDevice but he didn't found an entire industry. While Apple may have come out on top of the sales, every thing they ever produced was merely a refinement of some other tech that came before.

This is a horrible, horrible game that is terribly broken. The support for it is promised but has yet to materialize. Stay way.

GameStop sells PC games? That is news right there.

Only if you pre-order and they will only ever get the exact amount of copies that have been pre-ordered and paid in full.

Cubitek's offering look sexy for a unique desktop. Something much different than the usual rectangular tower.

News Comments > Skyrim Using Steamworks
22. Re: Skyrim Using Steamworks Aug 18, 2011, 08:05 Burrito of Peace
 
I'm fine with this.

I used to hate Steam with a passion as I was under the false impression that it was solely a DRM schema invented to do nothing but track everything I did with my games.

Steam does track what I do with my games and it is a DRM schema. However, it also allows me to install my games on any machine I want so long as that machine has an active internet connection. It offers me great deals on games that I wanted to buy anyway and I no longer have to carry discs back and forth between work and home to play whatever my current interest is.

I look at Steam, now, like I look at my email. I log in once and I get to what I want to do. It's painless and takes maybe a second or four to login.

20. Re: removed Aug 16, 2011, 09:17 Burrito of Peace
 
I played the demo and while I appreciated the Star Control feel to it, it still has that weird Eastern European feel to it, especially in the dialogue. It doesn't quite click.

Also, way too many menus and submenus. I should be able to do almost everything from the main game interface.

[Shrugs] I enjoy smoking but I do not smoke the chemical laden crap that gets shoved at you from Philip Morris or RJ Reynolds.

Based upon current scientific theory, there about a thousand ways that are guaranteed to give me cancer. C'est la vie. I feel one should thoroughly enjoy one's life instead of nattering endlessly about its longevity. There's no point in living to 80 if you haven't enjoyed 75 of those years or you've lived under the repressive delusion of monastic moderation.

You won't and you know it. Just look at DA2.

Oh, right, I could download the high res pack AFTER the game shipped instead of just having it included in the fucking game like it was supposed to be.

Aion is from Korea, done by a Korean development team. Not at all connected in any way with the GW development team. NCsoft just happens to own both teams.

The only people who play Aion are Chinese gold farmers.

Yes.

1. I don't think you get the reference at all.
2. EA has nothing to do with CoD

You should probably edit your post.

Nope. I am well aware of whom publishes CoD.
