Who ever keeps giving this guy pay checks needs to be kicked in the balls. Hard.

Same for those ADD console kiddies going to the government about bugs in software.

I picked up Dead Space on Steam for a little over $6.

It's a cool game but the controls SUCK. Disabling vsync helps but it's still weird. Obviously it was made for a lame controller.

DS2 is over priced but I am curious how the PC controls end up this time around.

"Welcome to Morningwood." I think I live there, lol.

Why couldn't they have turned on AA for the screenshots? I hate jaggies. That's one of the things that current console games lack is AA which annoys me to death. I hope the next gen consoles have dual (SLI kind of thing) GPUs to handle AA in addition to the other stuff.

About the demo...it'll be interesting to see how quickly it turns up on torrent.

It would be too large. Megatextures are giant. Just look at how big (700+ MB) Rage HD for iOS is. And it's a very short game with A LOT less going on than the full Rage game.

I do miss the days of shareware though. 90's PC gaming > all.

Not at $250 it's not.

I was going to buy one of these, but once I saw the price - nope!

Welp, got my PS3 copy pre-ordered on Amazon. I mainly care about the PC version, but since it's free I'd like to see what Portal 2 is like on my HDTV.

I played the demo of Portal on the 360 and it seemed fine. I'd still rather have the mouse but Portal played a lot better on the controller than I was expecting.

I loved Netscape. I always liked how the UI looked. Even though I hate dial-up, I miss those earlier days of the Internet of the 90s. The only modern Internet thing I care for is youtube, but other than that I'd go back to those old days any time if I could.

I recently bought WinAmp Pro. I always used the free version but I decided to buy it to help with future development. I've always been a huge fan of the program so I wanted to say thanks by buying it finally after 10+ years of using the free version.

$5 for a phone game? Way too much.

TBH this game should be worth more. It's hard to put down and has A LOT of levels. It kind of reminds me of the old tank wars games from the 80's and 90's, except you're "shooting" different types of birds with different abilities into structures trying to kill pigs.

At first, I was like WTF? Then I played a trial version and was quite surprised.

Cool! I have this for my iPod touch, iPad and Android 2.2 phone. It's a very good game. These guys have made a ton of money on this.

Let me guess.

You're 35, have 2 kids and think gaming is "super fun".

This game, like you, is a pimple on the hobby's rear end.


Just when I thought I knew the biggest idiot ever, you come along and take the crown. Interesting how you can judge someone so harshly based off of one game they like. I bet you're a blast to hang out with and I'm sure all the ladies love you!

Just FYI, I've been a hardcore PC gamer since the early 90s and still am. 95% of the games I play are on a PC. A bad ass one at that. As a matter of fact, this weekend I'll be upgrading my PC that's 3 years old now to a i7-950, gtx 460 SLI, 12GB ram, etc mostly for games like Arma 2. I also played just as much Quake and Doom as everyone else on this site back in the day. Hell I still play those games a lot. But I like mobile games a lot since they remind me in many ways of how gaming was 20+ years ago.

I am however not into many modern games like CoD, Halo etc and find them to be killing the genre that was always my fav which is the FPS genre.

I like Angry Birds b/c it's simple, yet addicting and challenging and has a lot more value than a lot of modern games (CoD for example).

Oh and your estimation of me is so far off it's not even funny. Well, it kind of is seeing as how pathetic you just made yourself look. You know, your remarks actually remind me of a snobbish Apple fan-boi. It has the same tone. You might want to try getting your head out of the sand. I like games of all platforms and I even develop for several.

I thought Raven was all but dead? I like Raven's shooters, they aren't anything special but they are polished and fun. Quake 4, Wolfenstein and Singularity are all fun and great at the fundamentals.

Also, even though it is common sense, it annoys me to read console-focused.

I found Quake 4 to be pretty crap. For one thing the weapon damage was out of whack. I remember it would always take a whole clip from the machine gun to kill the weakest soldier enemy, two rail shots (wtf?) or at least two grenades. Fighting the tougher monsters would deplete ammo like a mofo. The weapon damage should have been like Quake 2.

I thought the Doom 3 mod that re-made Quake 2 was much better (Lost Marine).

Doom Live would be an awesome idea.

I'd also like to see a QuakeWorld Live and Quake 2 Live.

Finally a game that takes advantage of modern PC graphics instead of being held back by old tech b/c of the consoles, which were already outdated like crazy when they were released in the first place. All previous games that had a DX10 or 11 mode was a slapped on after-thought and it showed.

I just hope they don't screw this up by having some lame DRM that requires a constant internet connection, or even one to just start the game. They probably will...

I just picked up (yeah like I really needed MORE games...) Mafia 2 and all the DLCs, AaAAaa or wtf ever it is lol, and Swarm Arena on Steam.

I also went ahead and bought the original Arma (on Steam) for 50% ($10). I have it already on CD (I bought it when it came out on Amazon for like $15) but I lost the CD key and I want to play the Cold War Rearmed mod again. CWR2 for Arma 2 is taking too damn long.

I was interested in The Settlers 7 but I refuse to buy anything with Ubi's BS DRM. I passed up on Splinter Cell Conviction PC for the same reason, so I bought it for the 360 for like $15 on Amazon. I think there was another game I passed up on b/c of the shitty DRM but I forget which one it was now.

I was also slightly tempted by MoH for 50% but that's still probably too much for a meh copy-cat CoD 4hr single player and a lame MP (I played the MP beta and hated it).

Man that Quake done 100% Quickest was insane. Mad skills for sure. I've been playing Quake recently again, but I prefer to play it how I remember - in software mode in all its pixelated glory (WinQuake).

Ah Quake. How I miss those old days of Quake fraging and modding. Gaming in the 90s was the peak. Definitely an awesome game and the saying is true, they don't make them like they used to. It's a shame b/c it was so much better back then. The more constraints you have (older/less capable computers) the more creativity that comes out. Same goes for any kind of art (music, paintings, sculptures, etc). The more constraints, the better the art.

"Our [data] actually refers to new Move and Kinect enabled consoles added during 2011" & "Please note that the Move numbers refer to Move-enabled consoles and not total Move peripheral sales"

Uh say what? Every 360 and PS3 is "enabled" for these things. You don't have to go out and buy a new console just for this.

I also don't see Kinect having much of a future other than extremely dumbed down games that very few will care about. Like the Wii. Having just motion is very limiting. Whereas with Move you have motion plus buttons/switches/etc. Move provides for much more interaction. Not only that, but Kinect is worthless if you're sitting down and not having a large room makes it working right even more difficult. Move has been working just fine for me sitting and in a small room.

Talk about an idiot with his priorities ass backwards. Says he "needs" money for his kid yet he has one of the most expensive phones there is? Not just the cost of the thing but the plans are quite high compared to all the rest. An iPhone is a luxury and if you don't have a lot of income it's one of the most stupid things to get. There's plenty of other cheaper options. He'd have money for his kid if he didn't spend $100+/month on a stupid phone.

Really this guy seems like a complete waste of skin and should be locked up for good or deported to the south pole.
