Political correctness run amok.

I'm on the fence with this one. On the one hand, I agree with this comment, but on the other, if "friends and families of fallen soldiers" really did express concern, their voices should be heard.

Generally when one exhibits so much angst and hate toward something, it is because one sees something in themselves they do not like, so they take the opportunity to condemn that thing to anyone that will hear.

For example, most condemn, criticize, and ridicule Christianity because it personally convicts them like nothing else and their shield of condemnation is the only thing they have to protect themselves. They don't like the way it makes them feel but they can't deny it makes them feel something.

But it's over now and nothing has changed. Zero sum game. No harm, no foul. Life goes on... for some anyway.

I truly envy all of you that have nothing more pressing in your life to worry about, I really do.

Don't DVR sports, Blue. It's impossible to avoid spoilers unless you simply unplug and don't talk to anyone.

Regenerating ego! Now THAT is innovation!
Maybe it was at the time the game was under development. Now its just another sign that its going to be consolized.

My favorite quote:

You can't just latch onto something when it's popular and then squeeze the life out of it and then move on to the next one. You have to at some point create something, build something.

Sadly, this applies to just about all forms of entertainment today; video games, movies, and television. Who is to blame though, the studios or the consumers?

Couldn't some software company just develop some API or plug-in that offers all these things for any game to utilize? That would take the pressure off the developers to create it from scratch and focus on the game itself.

Not only do they release a single new mission, they spoil it! lol.

I played this game for about an hour before I just had to say "enough". Took me longer to download and install it. I'm not sure what they are trying to do with this game, but I never felt like it was Star Trek in any way.

You got it right. What can you do to make people want to be a customer? Stop selling products (which can be stolen) and start selling experiences (which cannot be stolen).

Publishers don't get it, because they are middle men, and middle men are typically lazy. Angst over piracy is more about proving they are irrelevant in this modern age than it is about money, I assure you.

Medusa, I know you mean well, but I did want to take the opportunity to address something, not just to you, but to others as well.

Why do people always assume that being married automatically assumes that children are part of the mix, or more importantly, imply that children should be? There are people that are not able to have children for various medical reasons, or believe it or not, actually choose not to have children. In either case, they may be sensitive about it, and nothing is more uncomfortable for them than to have to explain. You don't have to brooch the subject; believe me. If folks have children, you'll know about it in short order.

Thanks.
