Wired has some of the dumbest writers who are completely out of touch with reality.

Smart TV is superior to other methods IMO, not that many people have the smarts to setup a media center computer. I know of a lot people who love them. Just bought a samsung myself and retired my old media center PC just because it is far easier to use than the media center and not as complicated.

That is the problem with the internet, any idiot can write nonsense. Maybe you are the clown Cutter.

See, I'm of the exact opposite mindset. I had a Samsung blu-ray player that I used to stream Netflix and then a nice firmware patch from Samsung fucked it up. After going round and round with Samsung's inept tech support, I realized: Why am I even using this appliance in the first place? The UI is dog slow, bloated and unintuitive and now, thanks to Samsung, broken. So I threw a laptop on my TV via HDMI, grabbed one of these and it's been smooth sailing ever since. The laptop can do everything the blu-ray player and it's associated apps could, as well as everything it can't.

But we are in agreement on one thing, any idiot can write nonsense.

Netflix blames Amazon. Meanwhile, Netflix's starts to look for new servers to rent after pissing off Amazon.

The Walking Dead is on sale for 12$ for the next 6 hours. I'm debating picking it up. How'd you all like it?

I remember when Bioshock came out, the developers touted the fact that you'd have to make "moral decisions" when it came to whether or not to harvest the Little Sisters. And when I played the game, I really couldn't care less regarding the decision.

The Walking Dead on the other hand....wow. Now this game sticks you in scenarios where you really are confronted with moral and ethical dilemmas. Ultimately, the game is linear so no matter which choice you make, you're still going to wind up going onto the next area. But it's the situations themselves that really sold the game for me. If you like being confronted in that respect, than you'll enjoy it.

SimCity 4 Deluxe edition is $5 on steam right now. Worth it?

Easily. You can't even get a value meal at McDonald's for $5 and I know you'll get more satisfaction out of SC4. Buy it already!

Hey Lucy,
What if I don't give a fuck about other people's cities? Ever think about that?

Let me guess. It was someone else's fault, not the guy's who RAN THE COMPANY.

Hahahaha...so glad you're gone THQ. Buh-bye. Uh? Sounds like you're saying something else, but should be buh-bye. Yeah, buh-bye. Buh-bye now. Buh-bye.

I hope another studio picks up where SC4 left off and runs with it. Just because they own the moniker doesn't mean they own the gameplay. There certainly is a market for it and we are long overdue for an updated simulated city management game that can deliver.

San Andreas was the best in the series by far. The sheer size of the game world, the amount of things you could do, the RPG-like elements of character customization, the list goes on and on.

All Vice City had going for it was an 80's theme. That doesn't stack up against everything San Andreas offered.

Don't be so fucking rude and thick headed.

Seriously? You got "rude" and "thick-headed" out of that? Jesus, that's sad.
"awful,boring,stupid"

Wow. Yes.

You have my sympathies. Life must be very difficult for you indeed if you get so offended by a harmless opinion. And yes, the multiplayer is awful, boring and stupid - sorry. Go cry in your beer (or grape juice) if you must.

I can put you two in touch with a good marriage counselor if you think it will help.

Don't worry about being spied on.

Worry about pissing off the wrong person. That's what it comes down to.

I want to know how you get into a post like that. Or even better: an ATF agent stationed in the Bahamas. Gotta make sure those mai tais are being served with the right percentage of alcohol.

Do they still have bot trains overrunning every zone, locking threads on the subject and trying to pretend there is no problem?


Actually, no. There were a huge amount of multi-boxers running around for quite a while, but I haven't seen a single one in at least two or three weeks. They kicked about 10,000 accounts a few weeks back; gold farmers, multi-boxers, etc.

They rushed it out the door in order to beat Guild Wars 2 to the market. It's the only way they could have decent sale numbers. And stupid gamers bought it instead of holding out for the better product. C'est la vie.

What about Grimlock? While the game looks nice, I'm just not sure I can do the whole tile movement thing.

If you didn't grow up with tile-based movement games, I'd say pass on it. If you did and you liked them, it's a great throwback to yesteryear with a new coat of paint.

"That's exactly the reason we don't have it."

So, your reason for not including multiplayer is because your customers want it? Smart business decision. You should sell insurance.
