It seems so according to Surgeon Sim's twitter. But the Korean usage is still interesting how valve recently tweeted some Korean and Korean also appears in SS in that screenshot.

Many good memories of playing id games so many years ago. I remember coming to Blue's News when it was essentially a Quake-only news site.

Now that Todd is out of the company is there anyone original left? Their website doesn't seem to contain a lot of info, and in fact doesn't even mention Rage (which I never played).

Oh yeah, and for those who remembered me as long-haired Jim back in the day, I actually cut it all off about a month ago--a first in over 2 decades.


I know John Carmack and Kevin Cloud is still there.

Makes me think of that biker DLC for GTA 4. If this game is anything like that, then it'll be cool. I liked that DLC.

I've been looking forward to this game for quite some time. I still have a trailer that came out in 2008 where it said the game was going to come out in 2009.

I pre-ordered both consoles.
Wow - didn't think I'd see anyone saying that. My prediction: At the last minute MS will reveal the 24 Hour DRM is still in the XBone. They'll say something like, "Removing would have delayed the release and we didn't want to do that."

LoL, yeah, well several reasons for that. When I picked up my day one release of the original XBox 360 it was already going for $1500 on eBay. I have two daughters. One was the Devil telling me to sell it. The other was the Angel telling me to break it open, "let's play". I told the Devil I didn't buy this to turn a profit I bought it to have fun. We opened it. This time things are going to be different. For one I have two Day One editions of both consoles pre-ordered. The other reason I don't see a Day One exclusive that is a must buy... at least not yet.

Shocked you guys didn't get the upgrade e-mail from Amazon like I did making mine Day One Editions. Though I doubt PS4 has a Day One Edition like the XBOne.


Yes, PS4 has the Launch Edition, which is the same thing. The Launch Edition is what I have according to the Amazon email.

Probably the same reason(s) Microsoft themselves don't trust Win8 to run early builds of Xbox One games. There's gotta be something to it.


Which makes this all the more hilarious.

That engineer mentions "nothing goes back to developers" when it comes used game sales. Why the hell should anything go back to the developers? If I buy a new Chevy from a dealer and then decide to sell the car later, do I give some of the money I get to Chevy or the dealer? No! If I decide to let my brother borrow it for a day, should I send Chevy or the dealer a check? The same applies to any other product. Once I buy it, it's mine! I'm so sick of these cunts who think they still own the product that I paid for. Double-dipping bastards!


Wow. Seriously, wow.

The car analogy is also so flawed it's painful. A car is something extremely expensive that most people cannot afford new. At all. It's also not really a luxury in this day and age.

Most importantly, its value drops. There's good reason to want a new car versus a used one. Less risk, it's cleaner, it will run better, etc. A used game? It's identical to a new game. Zero flaws based upon it being used. It simply does not degrade. Cars do.

Your post was nearly a meltdown and it is pretty far off base.


No you're completely wrong. The car analogy is fine. It doesn't matter if the object degrades or not. The main point is that there is NOTHING where you have to pay a fee to the original maker when something is sold as used.

Plus cars can be restored to new or better than new anyway. And not call cars stay devalued forever. Just look at classic corvette values.

Another thing, a lot of used games have tiny scratched/scuffs, torn manuals or cases so yes they do degrade some once someone gets a hold of it.

So of course the PS4 "launch edition" on Amazon has been sold out for a while now, I just noticed the "day one" edition of the Xfail is still available for pre-order. Haha!

Microsoft- Xbox One's "infinite cloud power" can track 330,000 asteroids in space


But can it track the number of people buying a PS4 instead?

I DOUBT that gearbox lost money on it. Because they sure didn't put much into it. Gearbox says its "3dr's" game, but last I heard, this was all done by gearbox. Didn't they mostly just get the IP and the game itself was done from scratch over again by gearbox?


No they took what 3DR had and tide up loose ends. They definitely did not start from scratch.

When was the last decent motorcycle game?


Tourist Trophy for PS2. It would be great if they'd make a new one for PS4. The creator said he has a lot of interest in making a new one. It's just that Gran Turismo takes up all their time as it is.

When is the OR pr0n going to arrive?

Edit: That's the design? A big cable right in front? Wow, that's terrible. they couldn't split it to run it around sides to keep it out of the way? And how many are going to get trashed when people forget about that and jump up to take a pee or get a drink or something?


That's a very old prototype of the first rift in that pic. The current dev kit has the cable coming out the back and it's not in the way at all. It looks nothing like in that pic. The current 1080p kit they are testing has the cables out the side. They sent out an update to us kickstarter backers of what it looks like currently.

The consumer rift is not even close to final.
