Supermarkets don't force everyone to line up at one checkout and leave others empty either

Apparently you don't shop at Stater Bros!

Just completed Crash Course in coop. Took me about 30 minutes. It was intense, fun, but ultimately, it was nothing really special. Not complaining though, more content is always welcome

Were any new achievements added?

You can certainly blame them. It irritates me whenever servers disallow me from downloading or playing a game I wish to play. Maybe you're not even interested in the Left 4 Dead content?

Hahahahah... So you decide to play L4D the same exact time as when new free DLC comes out, yet are not interested in it?

Yea! I really enjoyed the first one... while it lasted. If this is just as good (or better), I might have to break down and pick up a cheap 360.

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.

Here's a study: http://www.shacknews.com/onearticle.x/53357

And it must be true because a CEO said it!

I agree with this banning. Violence against re-animates has gone up 300% in the last year, and I believe L4D is in large part to blame.

When you've got multiple titles that are platinum hits or better, then you can say you have the credibility on what it takes to make it as a real player in the industry.

It's not necessarily having mega-blockbusters under your belt that counts. It's having the respect from fellow developers. I don't think I ever heard someone say:

"You know, the great ones, like Miyamoto, Kojima, Newell, Spector, Avellone, Levine, Smart."

EDIT: spelling issues

Yeah, $20 for all 5 Jedi games is good. But can Dark Forces I and II be played in a window? I would think those old graphics being stretched across my 24" LCD would cause instant insanity!!

Boy do I love Derek Smart threads... Where do I start?

At 46, I have been gaming since the days of Pong. I’ve owned every single gaming console ever created.

This is such a cliched response, it's not even amusing anymore. If you have to rattle off the games you've played and the consoles you've own rather than let your development track-record speak for itself, you're doing something wrong. In Derek's case, the damage it causes is two-fold:

1) It shows he must rely on his "gaming prowess" rather than his track record, and

2) Of the 16,000+ games he's played/own, he still hasn't learned anything.

I have been around long enough to see the rise and fall of the likes of Microprose, Sierra, Dynamix, Empire, Spectrum Holobyte, Access, Interactive Magic, Bullfrog, FASA and every studio or publisher in between.

I love how he tries to juxtapose his longevity against those of other quality dev houses, as if his genius has kept him alive while the others failed.

From one of Derek's "sources":
I think you’re an easy target, Derek, not just because of your history but because your games are tough to learn and beyond the reach of reviewers out of touch with what gamers care about.

"Tough to learn" and "reviewers are out of touch with what gamers care about"? Really? So you're saying gamers really want tough to learn games? Okay then...

I'm going to have to create another post just for Derek's rebutal of the game review...

Modern Warfare 2 is starting to rival Halo 3 in terms of marketing and hype. Personally, I'm sick of it.

The new Zune HD is really nice looking but I can't believe they launched with 16Gb and 32Gb versions. Didn't Apple just release a 64GB iPod Touch?

Either way, I'm sticking with my Zune 120Gb. 16, 32, and 64GB are just not big enough to warrant a change.

I don't know... I'm still on the fence with this one. It looks like it could be fun, but get old quickly. I'll have to wait for user reviews.

And they said no demo... at least before the game's release?

The bold type looks fine when there are only 1-3 listings. But when you get a ton of them (like with On Sale or Hardware Reviews, they start to "bleed together."

Must be on an XBox the way the player is maneuvering.

It is, and I'm really disappointed that's the version they're showing videos from. Why couldn't we get PC videos? Is every damn website a console whore now?
