I tried Fez for a bit and wasn't overly impressed. Perhaps it was my feeble mind trying to keep up with the map system....music was good, though!

Apparently all but two writers were let go, including some who have been there basically since the site started. Looks like they're making a major shift to video over there. Ouch.

Ouch. I was never a huge Gamespot fan, but I would still look up reviews to see how they compared to others. And it does seem like they've been around forever. Wiki says they were launched in 96, and it does seem like they were one of the earlier news sites I remember (Them and Yahoo seemed so much bigger back then).

Finally, a dating simulator that appeals specifically to me.

Good luck to you!

I have to admit, the concept made me chuckle, and I might check it out, just out of curiosity...

You need to be streaming/recording that shit, Blue. People make money on YT with that, these days...

Seriously, give it some thought...

Trackball blows for gaming. I tried. You can always tell who is using one when spectating. They are SO SLOW and choppy. Your thumg is only so long, can't move around very well without repositioning your thumb, so tehre is a HUGE dead space every time you have to move back.

I must have mine set high then. A spin does a 180, and you lower your thumb back when you're ready to stop...

It looks very, very purdy. Too bad it'll likely be the same five hour "sneeze-through-in-an-afternoon" campaign again.

Also, why does attacking nuclear reactors cripple the government and the military? Were they all sitting IN said nuclear reactor or something?

Just seeing the screengrab, it looks like mass effect...

Interesting. Crytek was really excited about making this game, weren't they? Shows how desperate they are/were that they had to part with it...

As I said in two other posts on this site in months past, the part of the company having the issues was Crytek UK, which only worked on the new Homefront. It is not surprising to anyone following the events of the preceding months that this was the part that would be sold off. It's also not surprising that development was kept in the UK (take a guess where they got the people for the "new studio"). Industry analysts anticipated this quite a while ago...

Had they been truly excited about it they would have utilized Crytek Frankfurt. It does seem that they will have to shift their focus after this, though, in terms of development versus publishing and their engine.

That's not their only problem...

Online Singleplayer? ~.~

Kinda like D3, only with praise this time because it's not Blizzard. I plan on getting this when the price drops. I'm very tempted, but $75 is a bit high still.

I would say Elite's case of other players around you, as you fly/play, trumps blizzards need of an auction house.

I doubt they'd just pull the plug with no warning. I would likely buy a huge HD and just download everything.

I just cringe at the thought of trying to get everything...I have a 300 gig cap a month, and would blow through that in no time. Hell, Dragon Age is like 25 gig on it's own, and there's a few other titles people have said are bigger.

I've been saying this since Steam arrived on the scene (and has taken off) but everyone seems to think it's the second coming or something. Maybe I'm just showing my age or maybe this generation doesn't really understand what "owning" something means, but we are headed in a really bad direction with the way software and games are heading.

Gaben said they have a kill switch for if they ever went out of business. They could release all purchases. Who knows if they would actually do it, though.

That would also need either to have the steam content servers still running, or only work with already downloaded purchases. Which, some of us downloading our entire steam catalog at this point seems like a disaster...

Larry Flynt is all kinds of awesome.

Whoa, an un-banning?


Was he banned? I checked his page a couple weeks ago wondering where he'd gone, and didn't see that he was banned.


I could have sworn he was. Maybe not...

It was awesome, but I AM worried about Abrams at the helm of Ep. VII. Will it be Star Trek? Or Star Trek: Into Darkness? More the former than the latter, please.

Someone on io9 pointed out a week or two ago, that this will be the first Star Wars w/o the 20th Century Fox famous orchestral lead in. Which for Star Wars, is almost as iconic as the SW theme itself.

Kinda sad.
