Here up Upstate NY (Ithaca area) we got a good five inches which means in the hills nearby they probably have a foot at least. It's by far the most snow so far in the season here.


Man, you just made me homesick.

Grew up in the Southern Tier/Finger Lakes region.

I think that they should just FRAPS two hours of Missile Command being played really, really well.

I mean...c'mon...would probably be better than what Hollywood will come up with.

Disappear? No. Be flamboyantly murdered in a very public message to other journalists?

You betcha.

I have an idea. Why don't they stop making copy-paste grind trash and make actual fun games? Maybe people are tired of playing the same shitty grind they've been playing since Ultima Online.


It's a catch 22, Dok.

MMO players decry the monotony of WoW clone after WoW clone...then flip out when they get in an MMO and some aspect of it isn't exactly like WoW.

I hear you, though - I'd be interested in maybe paying for an MMO that wasn't more like a second job than a form of entertainment.

Pick any STALKER game, get the "Complete" mod compilation for it and prepare for open-world FPS bliss!

I have faith that these dudes won't screw this awesome franchise up for consoles.


Not familiar with this - will have to check the Googles for his "Complete" of which you speak. I grabbed the expansion on sale, but I think I'm going to replay the original from the beginning, soon.

Only mod I used was one that let me pay to repair my gear. (I suppose that might be considered lame, but it made the difference between "awesome fun game" and "pain in the ass" so I'll own it.)

EDIT: Just read up on this mod. Sounds epic. Thanks, Prez!

Re: How to Switch from a PC to a Mac - TechReviewSource

"so safe that viruses barely exists"

What a load of horse shit. Did Apple write this piece of trash?


Care to enlighten us on when an OS X box has ever been hit by a virus? You know...in the wild, without requiring the user to enter the admin password for the box to install it?

Linux, and by extension OS X and Android, aren't impervious to malware...but it does require the user to consent to install it. "Barely" might actually overstate the risk.

Though I'll agree the article is rubbish...recommending installing MS Office!? $200 for an app that DOES create vulnerabilities to MS Office exploits, when you can get a better, more secure, app for free with NeoOffice.

I can't understand why I would pay to upgrade to a new version of Windows until I have a reason.

The only reason I maintain a Windows machine is to play games - so far, I haven't run across a game that I couldn't live without that required Win7.

Upgrading a Microsoft OS without cause, when everything is running just fine, is asking for trouble and a smoking hole in my wallet.

I never thought I'd say these words, but @#$% you, Bioware.

Seriously.

Going from Origins to one playable main character? None of the endings of DA are canon, including the Dark Ritual?

DA and Mass Effect are great IPs - but you're @#$%ing them up with this dumbing-down crap. You made a ton of money on the originals, so chop the bean-counters and marketing wonks into bait and get back to making games people love, rather than just squeezing the life out of them.

Gah!

I wonder if this one is going to flop. I pretty much have no info due to a complete lack of interest in a "Super-Hero MMO"... so, I assume that if there are many people like me... between CoH and CO... the "Super-Hero MMO" market is already over-saturated.

But hey, then again Batman: Arkham Asylum and it's upcoming sequel may have stirred some interest. (Again, games I wouldn't play... but I know the first one was popular).


Arkham Asylum was a great game. Perhaps not your cup of tea, which is cool - but it was really well done. Definitely looking forward to Arkham City.

That said, I look at this trailer and cannot help but make unfavorable comparisons to Batman:Arkham Asylum - it's got that MMO stand and wave attacks in the general direction of your opponent abstraction going on...whereas Asylum did an awesome job of putting you in the cinematcally coreographed boots of Batman.

If UO2 was going to fix that, why can't this game?

What does the Constitution say about video games? That's easy:

"Congress will make no law abridging the freedom of speech."

Not sure where there's a grey area, there.

Dude, Planetside taught me many things...and one of them is that Sony is a masochist.

NWN2 had some rough spots, but I still often think fondly back to my Elf Fighter's courageous one-man stand at the gates to his castle vs a Vampire onslaught.

I got most of the way through MotB and lost interest. I think I just got frustrated with the consistently Bioware plot rails of the day.
