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.

Why the sudden love for the Mac? Every one I know that owns a Mac looks down their nose at gamers. So you have a small market, and an even smaller segment of interest within that market. I just don't get it.

we can only hope the attention focused on problems it will cause will inspire them to reconsider.
Most likely they will reconsider supporting the PC altogether.
