aye, no one expected the spanish inquisition.

Sadly, unless they're connected to an activist evangelical church and witness what's going on, the general public isn't even aware of the single minded, manic, driven dedication and effectiveness of these people.

Hopefully the film will scare the sht out of enough people to make a difference.

"You are the beginnings of a movement, a race of righteous judges", deciding the makeup of the White House, the Congress, the Judiciary for a generation.

"There are two kinds of people in the world.
Are you a part of it or not."

It's 2006 and history is repeating itself.

With net neutrality in question we really do stand at one of the major crossroads in our historical and cultural evolution. hopefully leaders will take the path less traveled and not turn the net - like every other goddamn thing in life - into something only the wealthy are allowed to participate in.

think they're well aware that their MMORG will fail but they decided that more money was to be had anyway before it does. If they can suck up fees for, say, six months, that's a lot more money than a one time sale of the game.
Yup. This is another case of "make a proof-of-concept tech demo, sponge off the venture capital and tax deductions for a couple years, then dump it and move on to the next phantom vaporware scam." The SEC really should investigate these "businesses".

and i really hate it when guys like Koster wonder how to better "reuse and monetize" games, as if they were trying to recycle some old toaster oven. Games, used cars, insurance, no difference, just crap in a box we can sell.

Virtual Villagers is a commercial game on RealArcade, does that exclude them from the competition? fun sim btw considering the limited system spec it has to run in.

someone on the forums had a good idea, Atari should offer a Drizzt Edition, with figurine, exclusive autographed R. A. Salvatore short story comic, etc.

When you can't beat the 1st single enemy in a game because you're supposed to run around like a headless chicken while swatting at an enemy that is standing still then I give up.
lol sounds like me with the wii controller, i'll need a couple rl druids casting continuous DEX buffs to play a game with that thing. it reminds me of "mouse gestures", bleh.

and the Gothic series IS well known to those gamers it's intended for - rpg'ers.

Gabe is not the first to make this theory public
Funny you should mention that, this is the 3rd 'industry professional' i've read in the last few weeks reciting EXACTLY the same mantra: "We're not getting ongoing royalties and residuals for our IP because there is no cross-market for Games" like there is for films, novels, music, theatre.

What's going on? At the last industry roundtable did all these guys get together and agree to read from the same script in an attempt to move public opinion toward accepting higher prices and / or new higher priced distribution models?

Seriously, the similarity and timing of these comments smacks of an organized campaign.

senior executive management can collect Multi-Million $ paychecks for another year before excercising their Multi-Multi-Million $ "Golden Parachute" exit clause.

Officers of companies that pull this crap should goto prison.

haha, 3 Legged Dogs and Monkeys with Switchblades, both great names for a design studio. how about as npcs - monkeys with switchblades riding 3 legged dogs into battle?

completely unrelated - sabretooth tiger mounts has been done, how about wooly mammoths as mounts? maybe in Turok eh.

phillips lumalive fabric - "or even full color animations", so of course you know the only thing that will ever be displayed by 99% of people who buy this clothing. do i really want to walk around in downtown SF when this catches on. no, i think not.

griz proof suit - entertaining but i wanna see it vs. a grizzly. They always show how well the suit does against impacts, ie forces pushing DOWN against it, but the grizzly would likely pull UP on various pieces and thus defeat it.

classic math - other than clearly demonstrating the folly of all things math, it's interesting to see the old (1940s? ) notation used for division. wonder why it changed to the current version.

edit: seen on the same page and worth a watch again dept. - Babel Fish and Intelligent Design. "QED". from the good, original BBC TV series.

In the physical world we vainly scrounge for glory. Bin Laden still taunts us, the bus doors close before we reach them and leave us standing in the rain. But in the fantasy realm of Azeroth, the virtual geography of World of Warcraft, the physical pain comes only from hitting a keyboard too hard, camaraderie is the norm and heroism is never far away.
good summary of "why mmogs?", especially the camaraderie part. The anonymous strangers i encounter in mmogs are far more civil than the jackals i have to tolerate at work.

The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation.

And in other news, several sewer companies will start offering broadband internet service through your toilets
lol, well those pipes ARE almost everywhere. but yeah pvc and other plastics wouldn't work, unless you could modulate the water itself somehow. And who would want to be a field service tech for one of those companies. eww.

good studio name though, when you're up in the club and someone asks who you work for you get to say 'Destroyer Studios'.

"Philadelphia opens high-tech school of the future" with the same old thug-life students and political activists disguised as 'teachers' pushing the same failed social agenda they did 30 years ago.

"teachers eschew traditional subjects for real-world topics"

"It's not about memorizing certain algebraic equations and then regurgitating them in a test,"

Yet, oddly enough, every 12-year old in Philly has memorized and can recite verbatim every line from every rap and hip-hop song made in the last 10 years, but memorizing how to solve quadratic equations is too hard?

i guess McDonalds will still need McWorkers when this latest crop of non-educated misfits 'graduates'.
