Animals should be in the wild nature. I imagine if we asked a pet what it would prefer, it would want its freedom; if it had the chance to experience both captivity and the wild. Unfortunately, an animal is incapable of communicating that fact. I have had pets in the past and loved them. But in retrospect, they should have been running in the wild. If you find my opinion offensive, put the situation in reverse: Can you honestly say you would prefer to be a pet?

So many great kid memories watching the Blue Angels. Impossible not to feel patriotic watching them.

News Comments > CliffyB Announces F2P PC Shooter Blue Streak
12. Re: CliffyB Announces F2P PC Shooter Blue Streak Jul 8, 2014, 19:01 BobBob
 
If Mr. Bleszinski reads this ...

My advice / opinion:

Make sure it has a series of hit-scan weapons with anti-lag. Splash damage weapons are acceptable but should be not the primary choice otherwise the game gets spammy. I know my terminology is dated. Focus on players developing skill vs. everyone can play it. If you promote the skilled players (prizes, sponsorship, tournaments, etc.), others will follow them as mentors. Make it a fun yet difficult game to master (UT / Quake). This way it will last a long time and stand-out from all the overly amateur friendly games out there.

Also, an unconditional no cheating policy is really important. Some kind of PunkBuster technology will be useful, accompanied by an adequate global or regional reporting system.

Other than that, it would be cool if people could run their own servers (allowing maps and mods), but as this is 'free to play', I don't know if that can work.

Good luck!

I, at least, give fair warning to fellow gamers and real reasons why. Again, what have you done Verno?

You have every right to your opinion of a game. But .. Verno has contributed immensely to the intellectual aspect of the Blue's News community culture. I suggest you apologize for the attack and back off from trolling against him. You'll earn friends instead of enemies. Have a nice day!

I still haven't played an FPS that is as fun as QuakeWorld was back in the early times when gaming required skill and focus.

Yeah, why the fuck even post here????


I've never been against purchasing a game to get the maximum entertainment value out of it. What I find disturbing is the hoarding culture that seems to be a new fad in gaming. It's wasteful and foolish.

Last year I bought my wife a new 2013 Wranger Unlimited in her favorite color for her b-day. Those aren't cheap.

I consider myself fortunate that my wife would prefer to use birthday gift money to travel around places that we haven't been before (ex: small European countries or an obscure location in the US) vs. spending the money on expensive clothes or material possessions. All a matter of preference, of course.

You are hilarious.

Are you trying to win the Old Man Cutter award?

*goes to game website*

*tells everyone to stop playing games you damn kids*

Hoarding games that one will never finish doesn't make one a gamer. It makes one a fool that easily parts with his / her money. Quality over quantity. It reminds of a documentary about these ladies that are obsessed with coupons and will stock up with years worth of items, because they were discounted, yet unlikely to actually use them. Meanwhile, that money could have been invested or saved.

This is the difficult part about buying non-investment expensive property. The property tax forces one to keep on working at high paying jobs to survive. Retirement is not really an option. Downsize, downsize, downsize. Maybe it's not relevant here. It's just what comes to mind when I see someone come out of retirement to work again. On other hand, perhaps the person is simply bored of the tropical island lifestyle.

Just imagine if you had saved that money and invested it instead of buying games. You wouldn't have to live in mom's basement, could be driving nice cars, started a family, gotten a good education. Just imagine. Still young? Read this post again when you turn 30.

Another great show that was cancelled, in the late 90s, was called "Welcome To Paradox". Does anyone remember it?

The last bargain I got was a sandwich near its sell by date at a famous nationwide healthfood chain. I spent the next 24 hours throwing up.

Sick

Did you return to the store to complain? They probably have a policy to compensate you for your suffering.

6. Re: Evening Consolidation Jun 20, 2014, 16:51 BobBob
 
When I lived in San Francisco I had a daily bicycle commute to college to work to back home. The steep hills really help build the leg muscles. The total ride time was about 2 to 3 hours round trip. It's a great work-out. On the weekends, I would often ride across the Golden Gate Bridge to the Marin Headlands. I miss The City. Considering moving back.

That's good, because there have been so many national sports teams mocking your various white sides owned by non-white people.

How does that even compare?

Based on your stance, I should walk around in a state of self-hatred for one part of myself mocks the other part. Take a deep look at European history, you'll see that often different nationalities hated and enslaved each other. For example, based on my own heritage, German vs. Polish vs. Russian or English vs. Irish or all of the above warring or making love with (in my case) Native Americans. The distinct advantage in my situation is that I can role-play WW2 or Cowboys and Indians all on my own.

There's quite a difference between being based on ethnicity and being based on a slur.

I really fail to see why so many people struggle with this.

When I think of my Polish side, all I can come up with are jokes about myself and it makes me laugh -- it also contributes to my hard work ethic. When I think about my English side, I wonder how bad my teeth are, how I can't cook and ill mannered others seem to be. When I contemplate my Irish side, I feel my inner anger and a bit of James Joyce. The German side makes me think of my arrogance and desire for order. My Russian side makes me think of my desires for social justice and philosophical contemplation. My Native American side makes me want to go camping and run through the wilderness.

Do I really think all this? No. It's just a bunch of BS stereotypes and fantasy thinking. I'm just an average person. Heritage means nothing to me in the grand scheme of things. One's true heritage come from childhood and every imaginary and creative step taken up till now. I believe, and hope, future generations will come to the same realization.
