"No filmmaker working today has Bay's ability to somehow direct his actors to be both emotionless and melodramatic at once," Warner Bros. CEO Barry Meyer said. "And I personally can't wait to see how he needlessly overcomplicates the plot."

"Michael Bay has this innate sense of how to ruin a great story," Variety reporter Todd Brick said. "His ability to create astonishing plot holes, pepper dialogue with groan-inducing clichés, and abandon storylines halfway through is unparalleled. He was born to destroy this movie."

I love The Onion!

I hope Jacky gets to visit jail for a while. It would do him some good.

As for the "tea parties"; there are an awful lot of people that need jobs, taking time off from work for a mock (and extremely disingenuous) protest may open yours up to someone that really wants to work.

Are they trying to make the PCGA the poster child for the actual death of PC gaming?

I won't even consider buying this until the price is patched.

I'm sure actual facts will not be finding their way into the anti-drug "game". I'm just as certain that much of the content, in all its scientifically accurate glory, will be lifted from "Reefer Madness".

A 30-second intro theme and a presenter that emphasises every other word? Unbearable. This is exactly the reason I don't bother checking out most podcasts.

I agree completely! As an added bonus, because it is a GameCritics podcast, you know in advance that they will whine and cry about something no one else cares about.

Europe is full of nonsense and a vastly over-inflated sense of self-importance.

I would really like to see a revived CompUSA, if only to keep Best Buy honest. Other than regional and local shops, Best Buy has no competition and their pricing reflects that, especially in computer hardware.

I don't take as gospel any article in WSJ that does not list a source by name. Murdoch's crew plays too fast and loose with facts when a good story can be delivered instead.

It's amazing he ever gets a game designed considering how much time he must spend on presentations. On the other hand, maybe he should be encouraged to do even more presentations and less game designing...

Games are games, they aren't meant to be interactive versions of "Sophie's Choice". Games are meant to be entertaining. Sure, developers can create games where the player must make morality-based choices and 'live' with the consequences, but only until they stop playing that particular game. I think most 'gaming journalists' need to come back down to Earth and realize that they're writing about pieces of entertainment, not social commentaries on the nature of Mankind.

I thought this was originally announced a month ago. I know it has been a long time since I put in my application for the beta.

Sun was not worth $7 billion. IBM was nuts to even make that offer.

Explosions are a gimmick, too, Mr Bay. So is CGI. I doubt he could make a movie his mother would watch if all he had were sets and actors.

Yes, golden parachutes suck. Most of those receiving them should get golden showers instead.

Midway's execs were trying to pull a fast one and got caught. That's because they're morons, which is why they're in bankruptcy to begin with.

I thought Sony announced several months back that they were going to stop production on PS2s?

He still fails to address how he plans to have a server render high-end games to multiple clients simultaneously. Yes, it is about revenue per server, but if your service delivery sucks, no one will subscribe and your revenue per server will be zip. Given the special bandwidth setup used at GDC, I am more than skeptical that OnLive will be used by any real gamers, unless it's to get a frag fix at granny's on holidays.
