Grats on getting married. Your life is now over.

Right? You'd have to be completely retarded to get married these days.

I always think about Doug Stanhope's rant about marriage:

"yeah baby, we got such a good thing goin on, we gotta get the government in on this shit. Let's take things to the next level by letting a g-man flatfoot say we're legally bound. Nothing says I love you like a joint tax return."

Give me a large break with no ice and a straw.

I totally agree with D4rkKnigh. Avatar did generate some serious cash but that doesn't make it a great movie. As a film, it was quite simplistic and therefore accessible. If that's the way the industry (cinema and games) wants to go, then have at it, Hoss. I shall not follow.

You kids crack me right the hell up. I'm totally serial. You get so worked up cutting down and defending a little promotion that no one'll remember a year from now. Too damn funny.

But please, do continue. I loves me a good retard fight.

Ahh, so what? No big deal here. This exchange, much like gamers' reactions, will amount to bupkis.

The problem with id is that while their tech engine has evolved, their game design philosophy has not.

When one of their new titles comes out, I still feel like I'm playing Quake, just with better graphics.

I guess if it ain't broke don't fix it, but I might as well just log in to Q3Live.

This.

Very much this.

Id seems to be stuck in 1995 game design but with 2011 graphics. How much would you like to bet that Rage will feature monster closets? It's a shame.

I've said it before: id should have been where Valve is now.

I was so disappointed in Doom 3 that I vowed to never buy another id game again and after seeing this trailer, that vow remains safe from breakage.

This is rich. Derek Smart has posted twice (once after being swatted down by Blue himself) and no one has said a single syllable about it.

Is it backward day or something? Or has a callus replaced that part of our brains?

Anyone know specifically what technology gulf he's referring to here? The article doesn't go into it in detail (surprise!) and I've never used Impulse so I'm pleading ignorance.

Why do you bluesies have such a throbbing, purple-veined hard-on for HL3? You know you're just going to say it sucks anyway. There's plenty of things to hate that are available now! No reason you hate squirrels have to store hate in your cheeks like so many mashed up acorns. Spit it out already.

Personally i'd like to see a new Vice City game.

Are the 90s old enough now to have a 90s themed GTA?

What sets the 90s apart? This is a serious question as I've never really been able to figure it out. I dunno...grunge & flannel, I guess?

I'm anti-Ebert, but that's only because I really have never liked his movie reviews. It's pretty infrequent that I agree with one of his reviews.

And I just wanted to say that by just reading the blurb for the Gamefront article, I can tell the author hasn't been gaming for very long. The Battlefield series is copying Call of (Boring) Duty? Seriously??

It's not the Gamefront article I was referring to. It's the GameSetWatch one...the first one. Give it a read, prez.

Edit: unless you were mentioning it as an aside. If so, that's cool too. But you should read the GameSetWatch article anyway, regardless of how you feel about Mr. Ebert.

What a great read the Brian Moriarty piece is. I'll bet that anyone still anti-Ebert did not read this article in its entirety.

That was nice of Valve (giving back axs), but it's troubling that so many people are so willing to give up the ability to resell their purchases.
Arguing that a company holds rights to something is fine, but despite licensing, terms of agreement, etc, why is it that so many people accept this inability to resell?
You can find all sorts of collections upon eBay, of pc games, atari and games, dreamcast, etc.
Why shouldn't we be able to resell software that we purchase?

Does the loss of the ability to resell software mean as much if you've never done it? I say no. I've never resold any software I've ever bought.

Stormsinger wrote on Mar 4, 2011, 18:34:
Since when is a sequel (or prequel) to a movie a remake?

I'll grant you that most sequels suck, but let's try to keep a certain amount of accuracy in our QQ'ing.

Correct. They're primarily talking about prequels/sequels, although the press release did mention a remake.

But even if it is a remake...so what?

[This is not directed at Stormsinger (who got it right), but rather those who generally object to remakes] Did you know that when they produce a remake that they actually DON'T alter anything from the original film?

It's true. Not a single frame is touched. I'm certain you're surprised to learn this, given how strongly the moronic horde react to remakes.

Also...they don't confiscate a single DVD of the original film from people's DVD collections. Phew, right? Again: a complete surprise to learn this, I'm sure. </sarcasm>

So, seriously, how will a remake of Blade Runner ruin the original? I'd love to hear this.
