I'm only interested in the Steam sales, so, yeah, I vote for classifying by the sales method.

I never played the first one. I only played the second encounter. Lucky me. My first time will be in HD.

I can't separate the artist from the art in this case. I loved the early Alvin books until I found out what a right wing fundamentalist loon he was. I won't have anything to do with him nowdays.

As uncomfortable as I am letting the government get involved in what has traditionally been an independent self-policing system, the internet has become too important a resource to trust to an unregulated free market.

Like health care.

Anything fatty will have me up most of the night breathing in my own barf. Spicy doesn't do it to me, just fatty. And no, I haven't learnt my lesson either.

I did hear that sleeping on your left side greatly alleviates the problem and I can attest that it works like a charm.

in fact it precludes Linux from ever gaining foothold in the desktop market
Great point. And that's the crux of the matter right there ladies and gentlemen

The primary target platform of the game hasn't changed. It's a console game, primarily

Yeah, the ONLY silver lining to today's developers focusing on consoles and largely ignoring PCs. My PC is several years old and still plays the latest games at their highest settings (it's a single core processor). And I'm not planning on replacing it for a long time.

I still remember that article from the ex-DNF developer from about a year ago that said categorically DNF would *never* see the light of day because it was all a scam by 3DRealms to milk the publishers and investors of as much money as they could before shutting down. I didn't think too much of it then, but wow was that guy right on target.

Ha! Good catch mag.

Tim Berners-Lee, the inventor of the www, said in hindsight he regretted several things:

Web creator regrets addressing system

Tim Berners-Lee has said that if he had his time again Web addresses would be simpler, and arguably more logical, than the http://www.name.com we are all familiar with.

In an interview with the BCS (British Computer Society), the inventor of the World Wide Web said that he would scrap the double-slash, simply because, as he says, 'there's no need for it'.

He also said that he would have put domain names the other way round and drop the full points and unnecessary 'www'. The example above would simply become http:com/name/.

2. My own pet peeve Feb 28, 2009, 13:37 Ratty
 
Never noticed "Febuary." My own pet peeve is "dubya dubya dubya." Really, a broadcast professional should be able to handle "double u double u double u" without any problem at all. For us normal people, dubya is just fine--I'm no purist. Double u is hard to say three times fast without it sounding stilted. But people who talk for a living should be able to master it so that it sounds natural.

I made a resolution some time ago to never play a game without trying the beta first. Given how much I loved the first FEAR and both its expansions I bought FEAR 2 anyway. What a short memory I have. And what a waste of 50 buck. The game is unplayable on the PC. I would have been able to tell that instantly if only I played the demo.

This isn't about equal rights, it's about special rights. I'm not gay, and I can't marry a man. Neither can a gay man. So, there, we are equal.

By that logic miscegenation laws weren't unconstitutional either. A black person couldn't marry a white person, but neither could white people marry black. So everyone was equal, right?

So how is the SP game? I LOVED FarCry but especially for the island locale. I'm not too crazy about the African setting but what do other people think? Is it worth getting?

It's truly amazing and sad that Prop8 passed.

Now California is one of those states. So sad.

Couldn't have said it better myself. I was so excited about this game then as more and more information came out I steadily began to lose my enthusiasm. Supposed to be first person view, then it became third person by default (though you could change it in game). No save games. They adopted the same retarded system they used for Diablo 2.

I bought the game and only got a little ways into it. I keep meaning to get back to it but I know I never will.

12. Vomit Jan 4, 2008, 13:39 Ratty
 
Why are you the designated barf guy? Women have much stronger stomachs when it comes to poop, barf and diarrhea, being the child-bearers and all. I believe in an equitable, non-sexist division of labor. No reason men have to take out the garbage and kill spiders while women take care of the kids and do laundry. But when it comes to vomit situations, and diapers too, women should really step up to the plate. C'mon, you know it doesn't bother them as much as it bothers us!
