I can't believe Robin Williams is gone. I haven't felt his upset about a celebrity death since Chris Farley. Robin was one of my heroes growing up, I loved all his comedies.

This sucks, I'm really upset.

It's weird, as soon as I heard this news, I had literally 10-15 scenes from his movies over the past 30 years replay in my mind. That's never happened. I haven't felt this shocked since Stevie Ray Vaughn died. He was a very special and unique actor, irreplaceable really. Such a shame.

Oh Captain, my Captain...:(

Unless you're giving us Doom 2 with challenging AI, 40 decently designed levels, enemies that actually pose a challenge, weapons that don't feel like yet another shitty M16 clone (don't forget all the goofy accessories), and full 32 player multiplayer carnage with LAN/Dedicated servers...

If I ain't gots me a chainsaw, a double-barrel shotgun, and an ample supply of demon guts plastered all over the screen: GET BACK IN YOUR HOLE ROMERO.

The problem is that kids these days only want rail shooters and twitch tiny room shooters. Skill and level design is long gone....

Im not really sure what everyone has against sex in GoT or any literature/film/art for that matter. Its a subject, like any other, that should be open to the author's interpretation.

If you dont like it, ignore it! Or better yet, grab a pen and write something more to your liking! No need to rain on everyone's parade...

OMG ITS BOOBIEZ AND SEX!! *yawn*

A seminal piece of fantasy literature is being dissected by the prudish american audience because "SEX". Yeah, show us those 'smarts' USA!! (Or in this case, Aussieland...)

Did you read the article? It's a critique of how the scenes are written, not a prudish complaint that they're included.

The video game novel examples they provide are cringe-worthy to say the least.

Ive read the article, and yes Im aware that they are critiquing the use of the language. Its complete bullshit (in GRR's novels at least, I agree video game novels should not exist) since this is how the characters think. Its not "cock" its "rod" its not "pussy" its "mound" etc. Sure it's rather crude in a lot of the scenes, but then again it's a rather crude world we are thrust in from scene one. Its still a worthless criticism that's gained traction because people find it sexist, crude, funny or a combination of those three.

To me it adds another dimension to the immersion. There is no romantic language because maybe just maybe Westeros hasn't had its romantic renaissance period yet??

I happen to totally agree with him, i guess i'm Cliffy too?

since when was stealing socially acceptable? the fuck? i mean, i do use torrentz if there's no demo or beta etc. but then i buy the game.

imo if they just brought back shareware we'd not only have better games, but happier consumers. killing shareware was one of the most anti-consumer moves in pc gaming history.

Wow Slick. Just Wow. Doge Wow. Hypocritical doublespeak shlock in the same post.

Also, everyone is saying he gassed it right as he hit the kid. Sounds to me like he downshifted.

You do realise that there is no clutch, no gears and no differential in sprint cars?

Then again, most of the turning is done by stepping on the gas (the tires are of different circumference)

Wings! Remastered Edition is the easy to play air combat simulation you've been waiting for... no complicated keyboard commands. Just fly and shoot!

Oh yeah? Well, FUCK YOU, TOO!!!

Ive sort of given up on DCS for the time being. Waiting for EDGE and the Mig21 to get back into it...

Might as well call it McDonalds Gaming...in this, or any case of a brand revival, the quality of games to spring from these studios will depend on the people who work on them.

Its kind of telling how any negativity towards Star Citizen is automatically interpreted by the yesmen as somehow destructive and detrimental to the development of the actual game itself.

Like the naysayers are Sith Lords or something and are using their magical dark powers to secretly sabotage Chris's brain waves and are sowing discord among the developers.

Jesus Christ on a Space Rocket, all I ever wanted out of Star Citizen is Squadron42, is it so terrible that Im pissed off at the feature creep and the snake oil pitches that Chris has been throwing since basically day one???

For a second there I though that CR had announced an expansion for a game that's years away from release. Wouldnt even surprise me. Not one little bit.

Although L4D was one of the best and most innovative FPS experiences I have ever played, I fail to see what CS with Zombies will bring to the genre. Fucking weird....sounds like a bad April Fool's joke...

Give me a mouse. And a keyboard. Ill give you an answer.
Any other equipment the rest of the players aren't using that you'd like?

Not much point crowing about your skills if you're not willing to play by the rules. If/when Destiny comes to the PC, you can have a mouse and keyboard. Until then, Bungie's game, Sony's platform, their rules, full stop.

Doesn't make it any less cute that these people consider this level of play to be at all "skillful".

It's like saying "This guy is a beast! He's #1 at fingerpainting! But UH UH! Doesn't matter if you're a real genius artist, you can't criticize his skills unless you're better than him at fingerpaiting!"

Oh for godssake. Between this and the "Waaah, Windows 8 threatens my genitals!" post.

Do you watch people at the Olympics and go "so what, that guy ran a mile in 4.5 minutes. I can drive it in 40 seconds." Do you watch MMA fighting and say "I could take any one of these guys if I had a gun."

Wow thats a really classy analogy. Shows your true condescending colors through and through. Its also failed analogy, unless you consider console players completely unable to grasp the M+KB control scheme.

The only thing wrong with Vista was a rocky launch. It's fundamentally the same under the hood as 7 and 8 and works just as well.

Well no, Vista had a ton of boot time bloat, some inherent security model problems and kernel related issues that were corrected in Windows 7. It's true that the OS itself was ahead of average user hardware at the time but it had a lot of other issues and calling it the same as Windows 7 is inaccurate.

Windows 8 is pointless for any user currently on Windows 7. The 'hood' improvements are pretty minor and its just not worthwhile with Windows 9 being fast tracked.

This is what all the fainbois never seem to get. Windows 7 was an improvement over Vista. Windows 8 is a fucking cash grab, that just doesnt justify an upgrade. It's probably not an inferior product (although Ive had bad experiences with it I will give everyone the benefit of doubt on this) even though it takes getting used to but unless you own a tablet there is no fucking reason why you would want Windows 8 over 7, unless you are buying it OEM and simply have no choice in the matter.
