If this kind of thing pisses you off then this is a site you should visit daily like I do:

Techdirt made a good point about this....many people still view WoW and other MMO's as some kind pastime that only the emotionally stunted play. Many don't want a Google name search to connect to a players real name who may not want his real-life associations knowing they are playing.

Having said that, I would have been very curious to see how the discourse might have changed if they had gone through with the plan.

Yes, because having a proven developer who will make you scads of cash isn't enough.....you have to own their souls as well.

At first it was very much like Bioshock. Now, at the second half, I see a lot of similarities to Timeshift along with a little Half-Life.

Not too bad but I'd wait for a sale.

That site has to be the biggest pile of shit I've seen in recent memory. Almost everything is geared towards sensationalistic stuff meant to draw out your rage.

Re; the story Blue posted reads like the cops were insane sadists. Someone posted the report and it shows that 1.) the old lady pulled out a kitchen knife from under her pillow 2.) She threatened the cop that she'd kill him and anyone else who approached her. 3.) She threatened to kill herself.

the Crysis hate makes no sense to me

is there ANY game that posters here, in general, have actually liked? If there is I don't remember it.

re; Crysis 2 trailer- My system attempting to play this is the equivalent of a man with a 3 inch cock hoping to impress his porn star date.....time for an expensive upgrade.

too bad for you that "1/3rd" that left contained most of the AAA talent that got IW where they are today.

Its essentially Bad Company style gameplay except really buggy. Once the bugs are quashed it should be enjoyable.

I hope this one does better than "Frontlines: Fuel of War" did for Kaos Studios. Frontlines was an awesome game but they simply couldn't figure out how to get the Unreal tech to perform smoothly.

After the joke that was the "Games For Windows" project I'm not buying any Pro PC gaming PR MS is putting out. Ed Fries was the last champion of the platform MS had and he's long gone (unfortunately)

News Comments > It Came from E3 2010, Part 10
1. Rage Demo Jun 18, 2010, 21:43 Hump
 
1.) Theres really no gameplay I'm seeing that is "elevating" the FPS genre. The on-foot aspects remind me a bit of Bioshock and STALKER. But Willits isn't exactly a PR guy so he has to say something. The fact that its from iD and they're trying something different (for THEM) is enough for me.

2.) I want to fuck Jess Chobot in the worst way Evilgrin

Is Dead Space worth 10 bucks? For that price, I'm tempted, even if I'm not a big fan of horror themed games...

Yes, absolutely. You may want to pick up a PC compatible 360 gamepad though since the key/mouse control in this one is a bit quirky and annoying.

These guys are the model of what all developers should aspire to. They don't get bent out of shape over piracy, rather, they take great care of their paying customers and foster one of the strongest game communities around.

Ubisoft doesn't deserve to be a partner with Nadeo.

Ugh. I hated the original BF:Vietnam. I don't like the jungle setting at all and the music really gets on my nerves. LOL sorry for all the hate! I loved all the other BF games, but I'll be passing on this expansion.

I liked it but I agree about jungle maps, they get old really quick.
