if this gained enough mass, i think valve could be passing up a good opportunity for some positive pr by ignoring them. i don't think it will reach that point though.

i really need to stop dicking around and make a character for this game. got it as a gift a little after release (but it was really more like a gift from my friend to himself, since he wants me to play it). i just can't get excited about it.

of course the last mmo i played regularly was the matrix online so what do i know

that gsm exploit is old news, so old it borders on the archaeological.

it's funny to watch the cycle of big mainstream news sites rediscovering tech news and being shocked by it anew.

If you even believe in such distinctions such as good and evil.
the only times i ever see this "i am above such considerations" thing trotted out is when morally bankrupt actions are being defended. seriously. at least it's consistent.

the american government likes to court future corporate sponsors by drafting a really repugnant piece of anti-citizen, anti-progress legislation every decade or so, to remind them who's looking out for them.

Normally I like to pick sides when spectating this sort of thing but here I couldn't care less; it's one shitty company suing another shitty company. I suppose I consider EA to be the slightly more shitty company, so I hope it ends up with massive legal bills and huge damages awarded against it.
i've kind of slipped the other way, i hate what i've read of bobby kotick's actions sufficiently to want to see his awful fucking decisions hurt activision. it honestly kind of pisses me off how good MW3 did (how could it not?) and the back patting kotick must have given himself for trying to fuck west/zampella out of their royalties.

And PHJF is correct. Compound adverbs and adjectives before a noun are always hyphenated. I always find it funny when I look at a person's resume who claims they're "detail oriented". Deatil oriented, huh?

Actually, PHJF is [url=http://www.grammar-monster.com/lessons/hyphens_alternatives_in_compound_adjectives.htm
]not necessarily correct[/url].

If you "google" around, you'll find other websites talking about this as well.

The short version is that usage is determined by editorial or stylistic principles. It's just like "solid state" used to be hyphenated, but is no longer commonly seen that way. The hyphen primarily serves as a way to disambiguate the words in this context, not as a hard and fast requirement.

Another example of changing usage would be that Herman Melville originally published his book titled "Moby-Dick" (note the hyphen), but most individuals would no longer consider that correct.

it was seeing this comment at the top that assured me i was missing no conversation of consequence here.

So let's see...fans of these sorts of games are clowns like CJ_Parker and some other guy who can't even master basic grammatical capitalization. I think that pretty much tells you all you need to know.
i generally find your "thoughts" unimportant, and this has proven to be no exception. run along, now. i was hoping a grown up would speak up so i could have a conversation.

i own every modern warfare game, on pc. amazing campaigns. loved how modern warfare 3 tied it up with makarov, first rate ending to a story i found engagingly presented. hem and haw all you want, the sheer scripted spectacle of modern warfare changed how games are made. "no russian" is one of the first things that comes to my mind when the tired "games as art" argument comes up; it never fails to provoke an emotional response from people.

never played any of them online, though.

so in which camp do i fall now? the ones who hate modern warfare 3 because it became so popular that it is now a popular thing to hate, or the guys who hate battlefield 3 even though it's basically the same thing.

Parallax Abstraction wrote on Dec 11, 2011, 12:06:
The THQ executives have been trying a bunch of new stuff the last couple of years but almost none of it has worked out. If they want to have a pray of saving themselves, especially when costs go up more in the next console generation, I think Farrell, Bilson et al. need to be replaced. They're clearly not up to maintaining consistent growth.
i thought it was funny how they announced red faction would no long be developed because the last retarded game in the series wasn't as huge a seller as the others. just.. the phrasing of the press release. "after consistent profits, this IP has finally somewhat disappointed our astronomical expectations and thus we will naturally be shelving it forever."

Love how on their homepage they say that indy games usually have great ideas and bad graphics... and their solution to that is making Tower Defense clone 312 with great graphics.

Its like complaining that roads are ugly and their solution to that is to make roads from diamonds... while they then may not be ugly, they'd still just be boring roads.....

So yeah....

And your complaining about or insulting a game that you've obviously never seen in action is like running naked down that diamond road with a pair of scissors in each hand snipping at the air... Let me help you out:

"snipping at the air" really brought this one together for me personally

It would be interesting to know what the split is across the platforms. Im particularly interested in seeing if PC sales have broken records or whether they have cooled off and its Console sales that have soared.
i read recently it was 56% xbox, 42% ps3 and the remaining 2% were pc and wii sales.

edit: i'm trying to find this article again but i think it was one of my pulse news feeds.

SEE YOU AT THE PARTY RICHTER!!

also... why are they remaking Total Recall??? The original still holds up really well!

agreed, and i went to look it up to condemn whoever was at the helm as unable to stack up to paul verhoeven, but it's len wiseman (the two first underworlds and die hard 4). i like his style of camera manipulation and preference for wirework and conventional stunts whenever possible over cgi. i think he's a good candidate if it HAS to be redone.

I agree. Mimiron hard mode (Firefighter) was my favorite raid boss ever, and listening to it get explained to a new person and then their shock/dead silence on vent afterwards was priceless.

i had to read about what that boss fight entailed specifically to get this. that's awesome

The graphics in Minecraft look basically like they were drawn by a 6-year old playing with Lego blocks and crayons. So, there are much better things this would-be entrepreneur could be spending his money on.
it's my understanding minecraft has sold 3 million copies. there's no "would-be"; he's an entrapaneur.

i'm generally loathe to use this term, but if you're whining about the graphics in minecraft you really don't get it.

Violent: A still from a version of the Grand Theft Auto game. It has been linked to a number of murders in the U.S.


Huh? Linked how? By whom? Because some dumbass said, "Hey, I think this guy killed this other guy because he played Grand Theft Auto!!"?

What a a shameful, baseless propaganda piece. Utter crap.

it's the daily mail. the author probably made everything in the article up as he went along.
