News Comments > EA Can Fly
3. Re: DRM Aug 14, 2008, 22:08 ldonyo
 
EA is the only company I know of that can regularly turn gold into lead. I hope, for PCF's sake, that this doesn't happen here.

5. Wii Games Aug 13, 2008, 21:29 ldonyo
 
Calling a title "The Most Violent Wii Game Ever" isn't saying very much. Galaga is more violent than just about every game published for the Wii to date.

14. id Tries Flagship's Business Plan Aug 13, 2008, 21:24 ldonyo
 
"Gee, there aren't enough online games on the market, why don't we add some of ours?"

That must have been going through someone's mind at id. That's the only possible explanation for daring to tread where so many have so recently failed so miserably.

Now, add the extra disincentive of an extra tier of services for extra money. Can't you just see all the people not lining up to get in on this non-deal? Carmack's name alone isn't enough to sell a mediocre (or worse) game anymore, so he'd better hope this doesn't suck.

Maybe the R&D guys were working on a baked Apple that got out of hand?

2. Re: ROTK Aug 13, 2008, 21:07 ldonyo
 
I played the first iteration of RTK back in the NES/SEGA Genesis days. It was a lot of fun back then and involved a lot more strategy than just building up armies and hording commodities! For $20, I may give the latest version a try.

1. Sequels Aug 11, 2008, 21:25 ldonyo
 
No, sequels, in and of themselves, are not evil. Sequels like Doom 3 and Quake 4, however, are definitely evil. And I don't mean the enjoyable kind or evil, either! EA's endless parade of sports game sequels would also fall under the evil category. Now, if EA would try adding something other than new uniforms and stadiums, like improved gameplay, then they could get out of the evil category.

3. Re: How to make a molotov cocktail Aug 9, 2008, 12:48 ldonyo
 
How many hundreds of movies and TV shows have shown how to make a Molotov? The sad part is that the blurb on gameindusrty.biz does not mention the lack of instruction for this in GTA IV.

14. Epic Games and PCs Aug 9, 2008, 00:34 ldonyo
 
Do none of the top brass at Epic understand PC gaming anymore? Just because you add "enhancements" to a console port doesn't mean your console port is a good game. I think this is just more smoke being blown to justify Epic's decision not to produce PC games any longer and just port their console titles.

News Comments > It Came from E3 2008, Part 30
1. E3 Relevant? Sorry, no Aug 7, 2008, 21:59 ldonyo
 
Every "announcement" that was made at E3 was nothing more than the confirmation of rumors that had been out for weeks, if not months. There were no revelations, no surprises and certainly no need for all of the "articles" that were generated to cover this non-event. add to this the invitation-only snub of the game-buying public and all you have left is a circle-jerk for the gaming industry.

PAX and the GDC have far more relevance than E3 in the U.S. and there are conventions galore abroad that have real product announcements from companies that have not been all over the Internet. Hell, the San Diego Comic Con has more new gaming news than E3 does and new movie trailers, too!

Too bad the police and newspapers didn't use the Internet to research this claim first!

5. Mandatory 360 Update Aug 6, 2008, 21:03 ldonyo
 
Since I don't use XBL to download much of anything, I'm more than a bit ticked that I won't have a choice regarding the installation of this "update". If MS wants to encourage people to use all their downloadable services, why don't they drop the price of the friggin' hard drives to match reality?

name sounds like a deodorant commercial.

This coming from someone with a handle of zirik?

If it's cheap enough, I'll buy it. If not, I'll wait until all the episodes are out and buy the compilation after it goes on sale.

Can we just let E3 die, already? It hasn't been worth a shit for a few years and no one cares about it now.

Legendary actor? He was fortunate that he didn't have to show emotion, since emotion is beyond his range. He is a good director, I'll grant him that, but actor? Puh-LEASE!

1. CNet Finally Got Something Right! Aug 4, 2008, 21:18 ldonyo
 
It's been a long time since CNet had an article of any kind worth reading, but this time they managed to get something right. Yes, it is an op-ed piece, so the big brass really can't take any credit for it, but I'll give them props just the same.

I'm kind of surprised Jacko hasn't run off at the mouth on Faux News by now...
