That panoramic image from Mars is incredible.

It really is. As I get older, I find I appreciate different things than earlier in my life, and right now NASA is at the top of the list. Those guys are just amazing in what they do, and it's so frustrating that they're not getting more money to do awesome things.
We could have gone to Mars a couple (several?) times with the money we've wasted on war in the last decade. It's starting to look like we'll have to hitch a ride with China, or else pay for the trip through corporate sponsorship. "This EVA brought to you by Massengill."

The mentality of 'they don't have a right to do this until I've done something wrong' simply doesn't make sane, rational sense.

One of the most ignorant things I've ever read, and I've written some doozies myself.
What about the police? You ok with them pulling you over just for the hell of it? How about knocking on your door and forcing themselves in without a warrant just to make sure you haven't "done something wrong"? How about at 2:00AM? It's for the safety of the country/neighborhood, they tell you. Maybe they need to go through your browsing history "to protect America". "Sure officer, go ahead. I'm all for protecting America. Oh, you need my phone as well? Uhhh, ok."

As my personal lord and savior, Maynard James Keenan, said:
"Where's the line?"
Do you have one?

So if a 10 year old can write it, I gather you should be able to whip one up in no time to prove just how much more talented you are right? Go ahead, we'll wait.

Many (most?) of the people criticizing the lack of manual jumping don't seem to be aware of the game's new traversal system. It's automated now, so if you run towards a ledge, Garrett will automatically jump when he reaches it.

You don't seem to be aware that we know exactly how it's going to work. We just don't like it. I don't want him to do anything automatically. Why is that so hard for some of you to get? Jumping may as well be a QTE. Just mash your "parkour" button when you are prompted to jump. This is a limitation imposed by console controllers. I don't want anything automated. I have 104 keys on my keyboard, and 9 more on my mouse. I want a fucking PC game.

You can jump, it's only available though where it works.
Again... IOW, YOU CAN'T JUMP.

Far Cry 3 @ $7.50... I got to stop looking at the deals and start working through my backlog so I can take advantage of the deals.


I almost grabbed it, but it requires a Uplay account. Grabbed Serious Sam 3 yesterday for $3.99, though, and it's a blast. Run and gun fun.

That's bullsh!t. I don't need some crap census. I can easily look around for myself. Every family member, every friend I have, every co-worker has ditched pc in favor of some sort of phone/tablet as their main computer within the past few years. Are you really saying that people rather go sit at some desk somwhere to read their email/peruse the web when they can easily carry it in their pocket or have on their endtable and use it while lying down in bed or on the sofa? I appreciate your support for the pc , but you are way wrong. If that census is true then the people interviewed are talking about their old laptop/desktop that's collecting dust while they're carring around their main computer in their pocket.

IOW... "I don't need facts and data. I can create my own reality. I know a guy that said he ditched his PC for a tablet... all the evidence I need. You PC fanboys and your "facts" just don't jive with my worldview. I have not looked at the source you used, but everyone knows the U.S. Census is a pinko plot to brainwash the American people into believing that PCs are still widely used in American homes. It's obvious people participating are either lying or didn't understand the question. I say so. Infinity."

I don't know anybody who has ditched their PC. And you changed your claim after you got called on your bullshit. You went from "most homes don't even have a PC anymore" to "ditched PC... ...as their main computer". Both statements are BS, but you can believe whatever gets you through your day. And, BTW, my computer chair is damn comfy.

...and despite what that dipshit Willits claims, their next engines simply aren't going to be anywhere near as good.)
Willit's entire statement seemed a little "don't let the door hit you in the ass on the way out" to me.

And +1 to what Primalchrome said (64). So many of my favorite games were built with engines Carmack created. His influence on PC gaming cannot be overstated. You can't blame him for the dreck id has squeezed out since D3, gameplay-wise. He's not a game designer.

I always felt that John made great technology for a very average game company. Imagine if John worked for Valve or Blizzard 15 years ago, the world would have been a better place.

You must be joking. Wolfenstein, Doom, Doom2, Quake... ever heard of them? Four of the greatest FPSs ever made. Hell, the GoldSrc engine used to make Half-Life was a modified Quake engine. While id has made some pretty uninteresting, unimaginative crap in the last decade, they were gods in the 90s. I still play Doom, Doom2, and Quake on occasion, and they are still fun as hell.
