Blue, are you going to do a 'Games on Sale' list today? Because Steam has Skyrim and Portal 2 on sale for the weekend.

I know it was mentioned in the Portal 2 story last night but might be worth pointing out in a thread of its own. I know I'll be taking full advantage!

Agreed, the images from the Horst Faas link are really amazing.

It came into the possession of IGN in 2004 and a year later IGN was acquired by Rupert Murdoch's News Corp.

Explains how Duke Nukem's phone got hacked, at least.

This is going to sell truckloads if they make the specs accessible and it isn't buggy as hell.

Could be the WoW-killer, assuming GW2 hasn't claimed that prize already.

Boning them over a single percentage point is a short term greed approach that will just come back to bite you in the long run.

Yeah, it sounds like it bit them in the ass...switching devs mid production causes my interest to go from mild to nonexistent.

What is this obsession with getting bitten in the ass by a Human Head?

To quote Audrey Hepburn, 'I never bite, unless it's called for.'

My MO is to wait until a game hits the Steam sale at Xmas for 5-15 dollars, and then I buy it. Publisher's nightmare. If I only get 80% of the game for doing that, I won't buy it at all. Better to go back to the backlog of like 20 games I still have to get through from last year's sale. :-)

There's a contest here at work, and first prize is a ticket to see the Yankees. Second prize is a ticket to the Mets. Third prize is two tickets to the Mets. Booby prize is a Mets season ticket.

It's pretty sad - the Mets were pretty great 10 years ago but these days the team isn't taken seriously even here in NYC.

The latest rumour is that it is BG2 for ipad btw.

I almost fried my Android tablet trying to shoehorn Planescape Torment onto it with an emulator. Had to reset it to factory defaults. True story. I'm such a nerd.

Planescape:Torment in HD, preferably with 3D a la The Witcher. /drool.

I approve of your disgust!

Also, I approve of your approval of nin's disapproval of Darth 'Redfaced and Horny' Maul.

However, I approve of Cartoon Samuel Jackson. And the jedi babe in the short skirt.

Woody Allen won for best screenplay. He went through a boring patch around 10 years ago but lately he's been pretty good.

I liked Midnight in Paris - glad he got something for it.

I can't even remember the last DDO expansion. I guess the game must be doing well for them to be doing this.

I saw that LOTRO also just expanded (Isengard) and is already planning another new one (Rohan).

Good for Turbine - fun and well-designed MMOs. Well deserved. My orcs love playing LOTRO in particular.

The truth is clearly they took content out of the game to sell it as DLC.

There's no deception going on here. Here's the game, in the box...no Prothean. $60. Take it or leave it.

Easy choice *pockets the 60 bucks*.

Hey, that's 60 smackers to spend on wine, loose women, and general shenanagins!

Or in my case, a pint of beer, the wife, and some food for the cat. ^^

The only way I'd buy day 1 DLC would be if it was Horse Armor. I mean, my Space Steed is totally unprotected out there! And he's clearly freezing his nads off!

Also, in space no-one can hear your horse armor clank. Win-win situation, really.

I got Mass Effect 2 for like $8 in the Steam Holiday sale and haven't even installed it yet. Guess I'll go with that for now and get ME3 for $8 in the next Steam Holiday Sale, and ignore the DLC nonsense.

Hey EA, enjoy your $8 (minus Steam's distribution fee and royalties to the developer, so probably more like $2).

ME3 won't be on Steam, EA is using some excuse to move all of their titles to their own service instead of legitimately competing by improving Origin.

Thanks, I missed that. Guess I'll skip it completely then. Plenty of other stuff out there - The Witcher 2 springs immediately to mind.

Heh, just headed over to Origin - who the heck pays $80 for a video game? Good luck with that.

In science news today, a Russian drill penetrated a 14 million year old Antarctic lake.

In global news, the science crew there has gone chaotic and started killing each other. Rumors of a shape-shifting... thing... are floating around. It is supposedly vulnerable to fire.

Your second line was the first thing I thought of after reading the first line. That and the XFiles episode which they admit was a take off of The Thing.

I think the prequel/remake is out on dvd now (or very soon), but sadly it didn't get very good reviews.



Similar, except that it made made me think of HP Lovecraft rather than the X Files. More specifically, Charles Stross's recent books centered around the Counter-Occult Branch of the UK Government. Bureaucracy, paperclips, and mind-bending horror.

It's called The Laundry. Well worth it if you're looking for a fun read.
