Yes, the casting in Game of Thrones is so perfect, the characters are what I imagined reading the books. Unlike the crappy casting for that Hunger Games movie.

Hope there's a demo. It looks like a modern day Fleet Command or Harpoon.

XboxFL is obviously the Xbox for the retired folks in Florida right?

As for Diablo 3, would've loved to buy it, if not for their stupid "Yeah, if your internet is down, go play something else" horseshit.

My internet has been down for a total of about an hour in the last 5 years. This is a just a whiney bitch point that isn't a realistic concern.

Try living overseas on a military base with limited internet that gets hammered every night at peak times like 5-10PM. It's fine for surfing the web but for online games that require constant connection it is impossible. Satellite internet is an option and some folks do use that but the latency is so high it's useless for most online games which require any kind of reaction time to play. Of course all this is not a realistic concern right?

Due to my unstable internet connection the only way I'll be buying this is if the pirates come out with a decent offline mode. Yes, I will actually buy the game if a third party cracks it. FU Activision/Blizzard.

I had one of the original voodoo1 cards I think I gave to a friend years ago. About the only game I would want to play on it these days is Janes LongBow 2 even though it's somewhat playable with voodoo wrappers on Win7 already.

Back in the 80's and early 90's I used to trust most game reviews from CGW. They had specific reviewers who specialized in different game genres and it was like an old friend coming back month after month telling you about a new game and whether it was worth buying. Alan Emrich used to review wargames and strategy games and he loved including tables of unit values and other game details. I still have a page from his review of the original Warlords that I keep with the manual. The internet eventually killed off CGW but at that point it was in the pockets of the advertisers anyway.

EDIT: by the way, CGW museum is great for reading classic game reviews.

For some real nostalgia flavor they should get Scorpia to write a strategy guide for it.

I think they are under pressure to get it out this year to appease all the WoW gamers who renewed for a year after falling for the carrot dangling ploy.

Although the console will not include a disc drive, it will offer compatibility with some sort of interchangeable solid-state card storage, although it is not known whether this will be proprietary or a more standard format such as SD.

So they could still sell games on SD cards or proprietary cartridges I would think.

I would get on the Populous/Powermonger remake bandwagon but the Populous DS version that came out a few years back ruined my hope it could be done correctly.

And they've been making it since 2008. Think of all that DLC they will have created! Seriously, though, I am looking forward to it after watching the trailer today.

The article on ARS about the longterm investigation of the Anon guy in Chicago is interesting. It helps they had an inside informant but the wireless router snooping and other forensics the article details is pretty fascinating.
