I suppose it's possible that a woman would waste cash hoping to enlarge a penis, but I think it unlikely.

So is there an option to play Chavez, or do you have to play the bad guy?

4. Lovecraft... Apr 2, 2008, 01:15 Toebot
 
Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth, wasn't a great game, but it deserved allot better than it got. The PC version was lucky to see a store shelf, the developers closed shop before it was even released. Still, it's not a bad way to kill a weekend.

Undying really was a good game and it didn't get any love either. It was Clive Barker's, but a comparison to Lovecraft wouldn't be inappropriate.

I'm don't think these guys know what they are talking about. U9 ran 'OK' on Glide, it was the directx version that was unplayable. And there were no sequels attempted or planned, 9 was always meant to be the final Ultima. (There were 2 aborted sequels to Ultima Online, but not the Ultima series)

Yeah, Anarchy Online should be on the list and the top spot should have been Vanguard, duh.

"Oblivion, though not without its flaws, is the single best game that I have played in nearly four years."

Or why Chris Buecheler's opinion of Bethesda and their treatment of Fallout 3 doesn't really matter.

6. Whatever, Mar 10, 2008, 10:01 Toebot
 
I'm still not buying it 'till I've played it. Does anyone really think the machines used to generate all those gorgeous screen shots were spec'd at minimum/recommended levels? (And just supposing they were, what was the frame rate?)

"We'll Support Blu-Ray In Ways That Make Sense."

Let me guess. If I pony up for Vista Ultimate, I can rip and burn PS3 games, no questions asked?

Yes "perfectly cogent".

Do I really need to spell this out for you, with small words?

Sim City was Will Wright's team.

And I only have one of the 'SimWhatever' games too, and it was an even bigger disappointment than Civilization.

My comment is perfectly cogent given the context of the article, perhaps you should turn in your 'reader' card on the way out?

Which goes along way to explaining why my game library has one Sid Meier game. And I don't think I finished that one.

Only one problem, and it's a big one. Bethesda's writers haven't managed to put together a story that wasn't a long string of tired and obvious clichés. All the same, I wish them luck.

One final gripe I estimate 90% of the bugs I report don't even get to them because the reporting program times out... :(

After the Anarchy Online beta, they figured things would go better if they automated the dumping of bug reports. It would save them the trouble of doing it manually.

On Edit:

It doesn't have everything in it yet though

Seriously? So this latest postponement isn't just for polish? That is the story they've been telling. I'm seeing either another delay or a messy launch.

This conviction was a good start, now its time to rescind the law that allowed this type of grifting to happen in the first place - the Dietary Supplement Act of 1992.

On edit:

What this law did was remove all requirements for truth in advertising for anything that could be labeled a dietary supplement. It was primarily designed to allow herb peddlers to make whatever claims they wished about the effects of their products. You notice that the criminal conviction wasn't for making false claims about the efficacy of their product, but for their billing irregularities. This is not just about playing on male insecurities over penis size either; the law also allows the promotion of all those weight loss treatments. Like the one that not only makes you lose weight but also acts as an anti-depressant. Or how about bodyfat, got too much of that?

Of course if they did rescind the law - dozens of cable television networks would likely go broke.

In the end, all this effort (if you can call it that) will amount to one thing. Stopping piracy. PCGA = RIAA = MPAA. And when you consider that the best these asswipes are going to offer are shitty MMO's and shitty console ports, it may be time to just throw in the towel. It sure as hell isn't worth another round of hardware upgrades to get a machine to match what ever specification this group proposes. (The hardware guys will have to get something out of this too.)

Is InfoWorkd owned by Intel? What's with the free advertisement for Skulltrail? Are they really trying to pass this off as a reasonable gaming rig? The more you look, the more obvious it becomes.
