Out of the Blue

Bing bing bing! I am playing the music as loud as possible here in the BlueTower, while occasionally flipping the lights on and off as quickly as possible, but I do not seem to be properly creating the E3 effect. MrsBlue doesn't seem interested in dressing up as a booth babe, so I'm not sure what I can do to recreate the feel of the show. Maybe I'll spend a few hours on a street corner later pretending I am waiting for a taxi cab.

Anything that actually brings something "new" to the table.

Most of the stuff will be comprised of "big" titles that we already know about or lesser, more-o-the-same titles.

Basically, I will be even more sure of titles that I already know I will purchase and there will be a lot of standard crap that I will not care about.

It looks like there is some stuff for the handheld market, but that is not a market that I am interested in.

Hoping something sticks out,
Ray

Shooting and killing the "bad guy" is still a violent act Enahs.

Yes, it is.
But I was referring to “chick flicks”, ya know, no guns or violence, just people talking and dealing with emotion. More often then not someone learns something and does the right thing! My point was you (not you in particular) can not just blame every wrong thing on the media, other wise you also have to praise every right thing and relate it to the media as well.

It is the same position as media influences people, just from the opposite direction.


Why is it ok for kids to see 20,000+ simulated murders and 100's of 1000's of violent acts in the media but seeing some broad's nipple at a football game (more violence) warrants a congressional oversight commitee.

Because all the moms out voting and petitioning to have things changes are not reminded by violent acts that they are no longer sexy young women any more, but fat slobs; but when they see nudity they reminisce about being hot and not being nasty freaks.

And because everyone wants to keep denying that kids can not see a naked chick (from a magazine or internet) as soon as they biologically want too. And because boobies are evil!
I personally do not think that though, I think they rock, rock on!

They're more worried about some character like John McLean lighting up a smoke after blowing away a bunch of other people than they are the the violence itself. That's ridiculous! Woops, better not say anything with something that sounds like "dick" in it or I may get fined by the FCC.

In the words of Howard Dean...YEEEEEEEAAAAARRRGGGHHH! Oh man, life would be so much simpler if I was a crackhead. Take me away Calgon!

Just when I think the guys at homestarrunner.com are running out of ideas, they come up with something like this...this is without a doubt one of the more hilarious Medias of the Day in recent memory. I don't think it gets any more classic than "Justice rocket, big big rocket rocket fire!!" or whatever it is that Coach Z says (that's my best guess though).

Hmmm... looking forward to Sega's big announcement as well.

That Dungeon Siege 2 trailer was a complete waste of my time, though I'm still somewhat looking forward to the game (kinda). Lets see... Metroid Prime 2 and Killer 7 for the GameCube have my interest. STALKER as well... though that could easily turn out to be a total disaster.

That's about it for me. I'm pretty underwhelmed so far as well but it's not over yet!

I'm sorry to say this but use an alternate browser like FireFox http://www.mozilla.org/

The install the Adblock, tabbrowser and "click to play flash" extensions. No more popups and you can select which ad content you may or may not wany displayed.

Just curious as to what ya'll are looking foward to hearing about at E3. Gamespot has a large list of the games being hyped on the floor in LA:

http://www.gamespot.com/e3/index.html

A few things that have piqued my interest:

- Citizen Zero: lots of mystery and any MMORPG that ISN'T fantasy-based gets my interest
- Sega-mega-gargantuan-be-all-end-all announcement. Directed at PC gamers no less...
- Alienwares new hardware: will-change-how-games-are-played-yaddah-yaddah-yaddah (no it isn't the living room set-top PC thing either)
- STALKER in its new DX9 jammies
- Halo 2: MP gameplay video.

Curiously I find myself not caring one way or the other about both Doom 3 and HL 2. You can only feign gleeful anticipation for so long...

Does ANYONE know how to disable this ad from playing. Every single time I load Blues News, I ALWAYS get this ad and for some reason it bogs my system down to a crawl.

It's only happening on this one computer, my other computer at home loads a different ad everytime I refresh the page.

So if young people emulate what they see on screen to that extent shouldn't violence on screen be a much greater concern?

Or when someone does something good “bored people groups™” do not sit around and yell looke, see, he did a good deed, just like in that move with that guy that did that thing. As maybe I am crazy, but I have seen plenty of movies with good people doing decent things.

Lawmakers to examine smoking in film...

"Dalton wrote a recent study claiming that smoking in movies entices young people to pick up the habit."

So if young people emulate what they see on screen to that extent shouldn't violence on screen be a much greater concern? I really hate these crusades of the week.

And as for E3, once again I'm underwhelmed with the announcements we've seen for the PC so far. It's all just console garbage.

I'm glad I wasn't drinking something when I read this.

wouldn't damaging yourself be an excellent way of recreating the E3 experience?

Yeah, but then who would post the news?

So here I am in the hospital being treated for electric shock. Note to all, don't flip your lights on and off rapidly after consuming a pot of coffee.

Given your past experience with electrical devices (computers, coffee makers, etc.) you may want to refrain from quickly flipping the lights on and off. You might damage something or yourself, and that wouldn't be very good for any of us.
