oooh, future Doom beta access. Because id is going to absolutely rock the house now that their one remaining asset, Carmack, is also gone. Keep your eyes open for Doom, fellas![...]
Tim Willits is still there. He's the lead designer/creative director, Carmack just coded the engines. If you would like to complain about recent (and upcoming) id Software's games, he's the guy to send emails to.

I see I need to explain things to you: The only good thing about id's game has been their technical prowess. The game design has sucked since the days of Doom 2, or Quake for some.

Now that the technical guy is gone, all they have left is their design guys, who have already proven themselves to be terrible.

So what's left to cheer for? Oh, right.
I loved Doom 2, all the Quake games (even Raven's Quake 4), I liked Doom 3 a lot (especially the BFG edition, which seems to be how Doom 3 should have been from the start) and I loved Rage.

So, for me, id games are very good. They're fun and the "gunplay" of Rage was brilliant. I do not think it impossible for other programmer geniuses to take over Carmack's work properly.

Yup... well except for Q4. Hope it's not on rails, hard to tell from whats been shown, but we know it's gonna be a corridor shooter.

Jackson was right, though. That guy should not be an entertainment reporter.

Typical headline BS, was expecting to hear Jackson tear the guy a new one but he was just razzing him, it was funny not angry.

That Yamato trailer is like... 3 years old ~.~ but what's even more hilarious, is that you can watch the entire movie in the related video links on the side... yay? ;p

Ya ya, I know it's old, but seeing as I only found out about it the other day it's new to me ... and it's never been posted here so it's new to Blues.
Figured there might be some old farts like me around here who grew up with Star Blazers and might appreciate it... and the fact you can watch the whole thing on the tube is just a bonus, which I did last night. They did a pretty good job, kinda falls apart towards the end though.
Also it seems the franchise has been picked up by an american company who's looking to make another movie based on the IP.

You gotta admit though, for a 50 billion + investment that's pretty friken sad. At that kind of money spent the bathrooms should be gold plated.

Every single Olympics you always get the it isn't finished yet, will it be finished on time stories... but I don't think I've ever seem them two days before opening ceremonies, could be a very interesting event this year.

What an ass kicking, first play of the game says it all, Denver gave the game to Seattle... not to say Seattle didn't play great. Normally I would have hated the game seeing as it really was quite lame, but for the first time I can remember, I actually cared who won. Seahawks FTW!

lol, oh Rambo. I remember Rambo III where the Pentagon whipped up their Bravado propaganda in the film for Americans to be happy that supplies and money were being used to incite radicals (Rambo helps the Taliban).

yeh funny how short term america's memory is for that kind of thing

usa funded and trained islamic terrorists in the first place - talk about karma.. thats it

Yup, in yet another proxy war with the Soviets the CIA funds terrorists (well at this point they are attacking the Russians so they are called freedom fighters) through Pakistan and the Saudis. Once the Soviets pull out America simply packs up and leaves the Afghanis to the CIA funded mercs. Then the ex-CIA assets turn on America and thus begins the huge escalation of the American intelligence industrial complex built to protect Americans from the monsters created by the very same intelligence agency. America reaps what it sows but fails utterly to realize it time after time.

I like how you can trade in any PS3 but only certain 360's, MS sure doesn't wan't those old bricks they sold you.

Payday 2 free this month!?

Yup.

http://blog.us.playstation.com/2014/01/30/playstation-plus-february-preview/

Oh wow... I just finally started getting into the original Payday and finally cleared up enough space on my PS3 to get Dragon's Dogma downloaded. Now the sequel is free AND Metro Last Light now too? (and all of a whopping 2gb of free space)

So... is there any point in keeping the original Payday?

You know the PS3 uses standard 2.5" 5400 hard drives? $50 makes any PS3 a 500 gig'er, and installation is easy peasy. If you start Dragon's Dogma chances are you'll not play anything else for quite awhile.

oh, fired up BL2 (for free) on the PS3 last night just to check it out. Ouch. Even on a 46 inch tv, laying in bed 12 feet away, feels like I am in a tunnel with the 55-60 FOV. Isn't really playable.

Ya really annoying, though after a couple hours my brain adjusted and it was playable.

Wow, that zombie bees article is scary. I've been following this for a while. Christ, if the bees go, food is going to become astronomically expensive go away.

FTFY


We can pollinate food crops without bees, it's just ridiculously tedious work and it would require a shitload of workers per crop. Cutter is right, food would be hugely expensive. Of course, without all the crazy stupid subsidies food would already be a lot more expensive.

We can pollinate our human cultivated food sources. Wild sources will collapse, devastating the food chain.

Wasn't the XB1 running more then one operating system simultaneously in order to get all the TV stuff to work? Sounds like typical MS software bloat to me, not going to fix that with an 8% saving by disabling kinect features. Looks like PS4 gets the best version of the multi console titles this time around.

EDIT oh and lol at the 13gig patch for DR3 that didn't fix the lag issues... was kinda pissed it went XB1 exclusive but not so much anymore, they deserve each other.

Hmm, seems like Epic was done with GoW and wanted to move on to something else. MS wanted another GoW because MS figures that will force PPL to buy the XBO. So MS buys the IP and gets another dev to make an XBO exclusive GoW. This is what happens when bean counters make decisions about games instead of the PPL who make the games. Wonder what Epic has in mind and if they will still shill for MS.

Now I'm beginning to wonder if Deep Down is being done by the Dragons Dogma crew. Finally killed 'the dragon', game over? nope, just changed gear. My next battle was with an eye (beholder), took me at least 20 min to bring that sucker down, awesome RPG.

Nice, looks like a fun game. Large battles could be sweet, assaulting a castle would be bloody marvelous. Realism is a tough problem though, depending on what they mean by that. Realism is two armies face to face ready to do battle and you dying in the first volley of arrows.

Graham Henderson, the head of the Music Canada (formerly the Canadian Recording Industry Association) wrote a blog post late last year lamenting musicians' earnings, a situation he blames on the Internet allowing a few to "amass staggering, unprecedented wealth" while musicians toil for tiny incomes.

Ya! Damn right! It's the recording industries job to amass staggering unprecedented wealth on the backs of musicians. Damn pirates are taking our jobs of ripping off musicians and we will not stand for it!
