Sit around all day, drinking coffe and messing around doing pretty much no work, on a game that pretty much doesn't exist....

That sounds like my job. Except the coffee. And the DNF.

Yup - same here, just no DNF.
It is amazing how bored you can get of the internets when it is the only thing you have to do all day....

It is supposed to be The Hobbit as well as a collection of his other short stories about Middle Earth tied in as well.

How well it will work, who knows.

As in plural? How the hell can you make multiple movies about The Hobbit?

Ya I think they are milking it, its a 300 page book so it would, based on the LOTR movies come in at 3 hrs. They could do a 2 - 2.5 hr theater release and a 3 hr extended DVD. Two movies though, they will either be short or they are going to have to make shit up to fill the extra time, heh I supposed they could just do lots of 10min panorama shots.

Is that really piracy, though? A store selling copies early is still selling legitimate copies.

Huh? I'm talking about the 20,000+ people downloading the game off torrents.

At this rate we'll be ranting and raving about Duke Nukem forever. That's not a pun by the way.

Is that really piracy, though? A store selling copies early is still selling legitimate copies. This street date bullshit is just crap anyways. If a store has a copy, then fragging sell it. I went by the gamestop today to see if I could talk my way into an early sale, but sadly no. The manager was in and I think he has all his copies rammed up his sphincter.

Oh well. I guess I can wait three more days.

Those who played the PC version....does it look better on the PC?

I got it for free with my then fairly top of the line 7900GT, and it looked really, really good. But that was, ofcourse, two years or so ago? Most of the levels were a bit blocky, I felt, but it was still pretty good eye candy.

Since when did Blues become a stomping ground for a-holes? I see some of the posts and comments about other posters and I'm completely baffled at the lack of respect for one another.

You must be new here. Hi! Welcome to Bluesnews!

As in plural? How the hell can you make multiple movies about The Hobbit? Here's the story :

- Bilbo Baggins gets recruited by Gandalf the Wizard to go on an adventure.
- Bilbo meets the Dwarves.
- Bilbo and the Dwarves get ganked by some trolls, who are killed by sunlight.
- Bilbo and the Dwarves get attacked by Orcs. Bilbo flees into the mountains.
- Bilbo finds the ring, and fucks around with Gollum.
- Bilbo magically meets up with the Dwarves again, and they're ganked by spiders.
- Bilbo and the Dwarves reach whatever the town is called, and Bilbo sneaks into the Dragon's Lair.
- Bilbo talks to Smaug. Smaug gets pissed and attacks the town, and somehow gets killed.
- Bilbo and the Dwarves drink a lot of beer, and Bilbo goes home.

The end.

How the hell do you make more than one 100 minute movie about that?

(PS : I know I forgot that thing about the inn and the cellar and the barrels in there somewhere. I couldn't remember when that happened.)

How does MS not smack these guys on the peepees? I have to wait 3 fugging more sleeps while they enjoy? Grrr.

I'm actually glad GTA4's rampant piracy is receiving so much media attention. Now developers/publishers won't be able to claim piracy as an excuse when they abandon the PC like a bunch of whores.

Durr. Everything looks better on the PC. Also plays better with mouse and keyboard. Great game, btw. Best of the series.

He said people were complaining about lag (screen jump, etc.) but he said it was the video quality capture technique

Ah K so its not the game lagging out, cool, that would drive me nuts.

Looks like lots of gameplay videos hitting YT and looks like T2 is clamping down and getting them killed ASAP, I found one thats still up though and I got to say 'holy fucking lag batman' not you bats I sure hope its just a bad video job and a representation of gameplay, though it would explain T2's clamp down effort.

The guy I linked to yesterday had his stream pulled, but it was perfect in the stream. He said people were complaining about lag (screen jump, etc.) but he said it was the video quality capture technique, and that it looked suprb.

I am looking forward to comparisons of the PS3 and 360. Not that I care a whole lot (360 ftw) but it will be interesting to see nonetheless.

And Chinatown has always been a haven for lawlessness for those who know where to find things. Chinese buddy of mine just got himself a fully unlocked iPhone - which aren't even available in Canada - and he's using it on the Rogers network. I may ask him to snag me one of those.

Drop a line if you are taking orders.
