I'm not a fan of Steve, but I wouldn't wish cancer on anyone. The fact that he's stepped aside makes me wonder if he got bad news...

The chances of beating that cancer are slim to none. They got rid of the primary tumor and the metastases in the liver, which required a full transplant. But the cancer will have spread, either locally (peritoneal cavity) or distantly (bone, lungs, brain).

With cancers like that, you don't survive them, you just slow them down. If you can lower the rate of growth down to where you get to a normal life expectancy and die of something else, you win. But they never go away.

News Comments > GameStop Stops Selling Physical Copies of Deus Ex: Human Revolution
26. Re: GameStop Stops Selling Physical Copies of Deus Ex: Human Revolution Aug 25, 2011, 08:45 sauron
 
Deus Ex won't sell many physical copies, but Final Fantasy console titles sell by the truckload, and Square Enix also produces and publishes those.

If I was SE, I'd put together two versions of the next FF title. One version with just the base game, for sale at Gamestop. And a second version, with an extra set of quests, rainbow colored chocobo to ride on, and a loli NPC companion, for sale everywhere else. Then let the Gamestop copies rot on the shelves.

Hmm. Gamestop - fading high street retailer with a poor reputation and limited resources. Square Enix - historically one of the world's largest game publishers, albeit with a shaky recent history.

If I had to put my money on one set of lawyers? Probably SE. Suspect they don't exactly cut any corners. Just heads.

While you suckers play Human Revolution, I'm going to play the original Deus Ex with updated textures until Friday.

Suck it bitches!

'I spilled my dreenk!' For some reason I can never get that line out of my head when thinking of the original.

Got the sequel in here somewhere but never had the inclination to fire it up. Probably never will now, since HR is clearly preferable.

Hopefully this will help Square Enix's balance sheet this quarter.

Hopefully they won't sink the profits into the giant oozing cesspit that is FFXIV.

Damn it Lucasarts. Take Privateer, merge it with Tie Fighter. Merge the resulting space awesome with plenty of running around on ships and stations.

Mmmmmmmm, TIE Fighter MMO..... *drooling*

The protagonist looks like one of the goths that used to hang around the Hammersmith Clarendon circa 1986. And yes, I really am that old.

However, that's my only gripe. The game seems like it will be very fun.

News Comments > Duke Reboot Planned?

Jerykk wrote on Aug 22, 2011, 12:25:
So a reboot for Duke would be what? Duke is a bouncer and aliens invade... so he fights them? IE, no world-reknowned hero status yet.

Pretty much.

Alternatively, he was a sensitive 120lb philosopher, artiste and poet who was exposed to horrific scenes of alien brutality, carnage, bloodshed and daytime soapoperas. And a bizarre and enormous transplant of a rather personal nature...

One bad haircut and several hundered kilos of anabolics later, the legend begins!

<<OK, this is now officially the Duke backstory thread. Ideas please. ^^>>

Heh, yeah I saw that one. There are also no entries for conjuring foul spirits, torturing hobbits, or spreading disease, pestilence and woe.

Honestly, laying waste to the lands of men should at least count as a cardio workout.

My cat would totally do that if we had the DVD player set low enough for him to get at it. Cats are so fun.

By the way, anyone else here playing Fitocracy? It's a RL MMO where you get experience points, quests and achievements for working out. Was started by some ex-Everquest junkies. I did a gym session and cycled 12 miles yesterday, and reached level 3.

It's over at http://www.fitocracy.com/ . Currently in beta but folks here can hit me up via PM if you want an invite.

Also, that Huttball reminded me a lot of Unreal Tournament CTF, so maybe I'll just play that instead.

Eh, it looks kinda fun. However, on the Venn diagram showing Star Wars fans and MMO fans, the intersecting area contains some serious nutjobs. Something to think about when considering a quality online experience.

Then again, the population of Final Fantasy fans that are also MMO fans contains even more nutjobs, and I played that game for 6 years straight.

What an awful name. Pay some college kid $50 + some pot to come up with a better logo and title, geez.

Dude, it's a war! And it's ON YOUR FACE!! AWESOME!!!!111

Possibly the worst title of the year but not the worst of all time. That was Wargasm, which I was too embarrassed to purchase on account of its sorry-ass moniker.

If you'd pulled that stunt in my old neighborhood, some old crone would have rung your doorbell to bitch at you about "littering" within approximately 8.72 seconds.

Folks here in NYC toss all sorts of stuff and I've become pretty adept at grabbing it quick. DVD player, fur coat, desktop computer, swiss army knife, brand new UGG boots, brand new snow boots for the kids - I've pulled all those things out of the recycling or off the kerb in the last 12 months.

Actually, last month renters in my building moved out and dumped a full size mountain bike in the recycling (Iron Horse AT50 steelframe). All that was missing was the back shifter and cable.

I took it to the bike store for replacement and tuneup. $40 dollars later, I now ride it around Central Park on a regular basis to get my exercise.

'Hey, what if we mixed FFXII and WoW, and turned it into a new IP?'

It does look kind of appealing though - I could probably play it.

STOP CAMPING THE FUCKING RUNWAY.

Camping the runway with some shoulder fired rocket launchers is the best thing ever, don't ruin my fun!

Or just watching n00bs taking off from the aircraft carrier and crashing directly into the ocean. Never gets old.
