Out of the Blue

We went off to Brooklyn to get together with family this Sunday and had a lovely time. We were in the vicinity of our favorite deli, but decided to forego the opportunity to pick up some pastrami to bring home. That restraint seemed like a good idea at the time, but I'm already suffering with regrets. Better than suffering indigestion, I suppose, but now I would have liked to have risked it. Lesson learned for next time, I guess.

That's what Doom 4 should be like. The old Dooms with modern graphics.

Instead it's probably going to be a Doom-ish mod for Rage basically. The old style level design and gameplay is gone, unfortunately.

While Skyrim is awesome, what Konrad Tomaszkiewicz said about the lack of characters is pretty accurate. This is a game about the world and the characters are just bland actors inhabiting said world.

I'd totally agree with that. Characters in the ES games always felt like 2d cutouts...

Well if its that easy then they should remake all the old games HD.

So awesome... yes, they should! except only graphic designers like these don't get paid to do that, so no real incentive.

I think A.I. should be developed and robots should start taking the roll of artists and be programmed to do this kind of stuff. Like Google image analysis recognition or something.

Why do radiologists miss dancing gorillas?

Says that 83% of the radiologists didn't see the gorilla. WOW.

Except for the part where it said it took him 35 hours to do just that single image.

No pastrami? No use of man stove in winter? You sir - are queued up to lose your man card!
