I don't agree with it. First of all, anyone who does this
should be sued. They paid for a service and you f--- it up.

Second, who are you to say that people are dumbass little
wannabes because they want to have a 'cool asian character'
on their bods or car windows?

People should do what they want to do so long as nobody gets
hurt. Go read Transmetropolitan sometime. I may not agree
with some peoples' choices of clothing or bodyart, but I
don't call them 'dumbass wannabes' because they think some-
thing is 'kewl.' Like you never bought an action figure
because it looked 'uber-sweet'... ~.~

2. Re: Game Makers Aren't Chasing Women Jul 15, 2003, 12:21 Hyatus
 
I think the problem is that men prefer competetive games
and women prefer non-competetive games.

Don't get me wrong, I "know" there are some seriously
competetive women out there, but they're few and far
between. I think men are less likely to enjoy randomness
in their games as well.

We'd rather use our fine-tuned 1337 sK|11Z than have to
guess or hope our way through something.

I suppose the point is, despite some exceptions, men and
women are still mostly different in some areas and it's
naieve to think that you'll create that 'wondergame' that
will encompass both genders' time equally. Besides, if
you're going to create a game, make it something that you
yourself want to play.

It's not 'our' fault the market isn't saturated with women
gamers, or women aren't securing more jobs in the market-
place. They need to have a few figureheads lead the
revolution.

The only woman they ever bring up, it seems, is Roberta
Williams. And let's face it, she hasn't done a game in,
what...6+ years?

Women...prove to us you're just as good as we are...secure
some positions, sheesh...Want everything handed to them on
a silver platter saying, "Gee, why won't you let us into
your club?" Earn it. ~.~

Actually, I thought Postal 2 was just mediocre.
Postal 1 is still a game I load up at times.

It should have been a bargain bin-priced title.
$20 like Serious Sam.

Don't know WHAT they were thinking when trying to release
it at normal retail prices.

What they SHOULD do is update the Postal 1 engine just a
tad. Like, update the code to DX9 or so. Make it run a
bit smoother on newer machines.

Looks a little dated tech-wise, but should be fun. ^_^

However, if this game ships for more than $20, I'm waiting
'til it hits the bargain bin for no less than $10. ~.~

8. A Spielberg in Your Own Mind Jul 4, 2003, 14:01 Hyatus
 
'Our memories are, to some degree, like a final-cut videotape: Research confirms that each of us continually edits and splices recollections, replacing one "picture" with another, sometimes with a little outside assistance. "Memory is a creative event, born anew every day," says Elizabeth Loftus, a University of California, Irvine, psychologist who is a leading expert on the malleability of eyewitness testimony. "You fill in the holes every time you reconstruct an event in your own mind."'

I don't agree with this exactly. I believe memory is
flawless(sans brain damage or disease, perhaps).
'Recollections' are edited.

Happy 4th(even though mine is sucking already ~.~)!

I've got to wonder, though...
2 years...24M download...Episode 1? Do I want to play this?
I mean, am I going to have to wait another two years for
Episode 2? Chances are, the team'd stop creating the
mod long before that and we'd be left with half of a
'fanfiction.'

Yeah, I saw those terms and conditions when I was signing
up. This list is just dumb. Basically, I've gotten rid of
what...4 calls a year?

$30? Who spends $30 on a game they aren't sure of?
I'm guessing people who probably think Suncoast is a cheap
place to buy anime DVDs. ~.~

10. ugh... Jul 1, 2003, 15:56 Hyatus
 
I agree. $30 for an expansion pack is way too much,
standalone or not.

Serious Sam 1&2 were only $20 and those were full games.

Anyone remember the days when you could pickup a copy of
something like, "Doom levels 3000+" and it had a bunch of
user-created maps, mods and the like for around $5 or $10?

Those were the days...

Actually, Action HL wasn't NEARLY as great of a game as
Action Quake(2) was. It's really shame nobody seems to
play these games anymore...Maybe I'll throw a LAN party
for my bday weekend and play some AQ...hmm...

'"I'm interested," Hatch interrupted. He said damaging someone's computer "may be the only way you can teach somebody about copyrights."'

Maybe somebody should teach the senators about copyrights
and why they were instated in the first place. Fix that
problem and then I'll listen to him.

What? It's bad enough that the
agents no longer pose any threat at
all, but now these are the kind of
obstacles we must overcome to save
Zion? Make out with Monica Belluci?
What will we have to do next, eat
our way through a prison wall made
of chocolate?

LOL...that was 'spit milk out my nose' funny. ^,^

I had the same bat as that 'BAT OF JUSTICE'. Got it at
Target. It was kewl. ^.^ Great little bat for smacking
around tennis balls for my dog.

And Happy Bday Mrs. Blue. ^,^
Thanks for sharing him with us(and not in the good Las
Vegas way). ~.^

23. Students shirk cursive as keyboard rules Jun 9, 2003, 16:15 Hyatus
 
Okay, really. Aside from signing your name...how many of
you actually use cursive day-to-day?

When I made a girlfriend's Valentine's Day card a few years
ago, I had to actually go back and re-learn the script.

Heh...I've probably forgotten most of it by now. It's just
so useless to me. I write in standard faster than I ever
did in cursive.

7. yup... Jun 6, 2003, 16:23 Hyatus
 
That's how I watch it, too.

I stopped watching most TV shows long ago.
And, while I DID have HBO for last season(alas, no longer),
I wasn't able to catch more than the first 4 episodes.

Not to mention that remembering showtimes is not easy when
you live on the West Coast and your digisat service runs
mostly East Coast channels. ~.~
