News Comments > Stardock Boycotting UPS? [Updated]

People like both Glen Beck and Keith Oberlmann are simply sideshow barkers who pull in ratings. The unfortunate part is they both have a huge influence in the current political landscape. You can read and hear it on various political message boards. The phrases, cliche's and everything else they use has become the vernacular of the extreme left and right. It constantly amazes me at just how sheep-like and shallow the American public is. For myself its gotten to the point where the most fair and balanced news site is.....and I'm not joking....Xinhua, the official Chinese news agency.

that ought to scare the living hell out of these shitbags. But, I'm not holding out any hope. we only seem to be getting more stupid by the moment.

back at its peak I remember that a few clans would organize huge battles on Sundays. The entire day was like a war simulation for the US Army. If you had a good chain of command the battles would be epic. Once in awhile the developers would join in (on their day off no less) and things would get quite interesting. That was some of the most memorable gaming I've ever experienced.

However, I just don't get why anyone would pay a subscription fee to be in a frag fest, when there are tons of shooters out there that you can do that for free. (I obviously never played Planetside).

Go play it. Its far deeper than a "frag fest". Its probably one of the deepest FPS games you'll ever play. The learning curve is significant so be prepared to spend a week or better just getting acclimated.

this is something that they should've done on day one.

all they need to do now is allow folks to use off-the-rack USB hard drives.

News Comments > Modern Warfare 2 Surprises Remain
13. Re: Modern Warfare 2 Surprises Remain Sep 23, 2009, 14:43 Hump
 
from Wikipedia re Robert Kotick:

Kotick is a controversial figure in the press and gaming community. This is due to the fact that he is only interested in creating sequels to popular franchises, rather than developing new ones. In responding to why Activision Blizzard chose not to publish certain games, he implied the company is not interested in games that "don't have the potential to be exploited every year on every platform with clear sequel potential and have the potential to become $100 million franchises".

He has zero interest in pushing gaming into new areas of creativity and artistic expression even though, like EA, they have the resources and industry position to take a leadership role in such an endeavor. Instead he chooses to be a semen receptacle for sharehlders.

The guy is a cancer on the gaming industry.

At least its only few days.


I'd love to see a study done that confirms or dispels the myth that pirated PC versions of any particular game affect sales of its console counterpart in any significant amounts.

News Comments > German Wolfenstein PC Recall
9. Re: German Wolfenstein PC Recall Sep 22, 2009, 13:37 Hump
 

The reason the swastika symbol is illegal is itself a symbolic gesture. This decision was made right after WWII and it served as a demonstration that germany wanted to distance itself from the brutal genocide that was committed under Hitler.

and laws that lock people up if they deny or even debate the numbers involved in the holocaust? Much of that zeal to "distance itself" from the horrors of WW2 comes from outside Germany via groups like the JDL.

The sentiment behind such laws is understandable, but, it ends doing more harm than good by discouraging debate/discussion and also leads to what we are seeing here, censorship. In no way are Nazi's depicted in anything other than a negative light in Wolfenstein which makes the swastika flag issue nonsensical.

Too bad this isn't real. I mean that.

Hell, CoD:WaW used dogs to good effect, why not a goofy team based shooter?

The doggy back mounted turrets might be a bit much though Laugh2

Not that it's a bad game but Sony is still charging for the Planetside game client? I was under the impression that you download the free version and can upgrade to the full one when you start paying the monthly fee.

FF isn't "bunny hopping". The mod has gotten most of the hardcore TF/TFC crowd who pretty much disowned TF2 as far as league play goes. It takes a lot of time to get proficient at FF because of the learning curve.

Please, PLEASE let this be Shogo 2.

nearly every single post about monolith on any given site has people responding that they want a sequel to Shogo (me incldued). I wish to hell they'd wake up to this fact.
