You can wipe your ass with anecdotes about amd vs nvidia.

Read lots of reviews, do your homework, and make a choice based on evidence and reason.

He who says someone is "whining," would call the "whining" a legitimate complain if he agreed with it. But he doesn't hence calling it "whining."

PT Boats was an unfinished mess that they never fixed. Why would anyone trust them to release a standalone expansion?

News Comments > Games/TV and "Significant Psychological Difficulties"
16. Re: Games/TV and Oct 11, 2010, 18:15 Overon
 

I don't need a study to tell me that you will have "significant psychological difficulties" from playing games/watching tv too much ....
Actually you do. Being scientifically illiterate is an obstacle for evaluating people's claims. Everyday you are bombarded by claims and if you are scientifically illiterate or more generally, lack critical thinking skills, you are ill-equipped to determine what is true or what is not. Common sense only goes so far. There are many things that do not get along with common sense yet they are true and vice versa.

Studies based on self reported data are as good as toilet paper.
I think you are exaggerating a bit. They are not as good as toilet paper they are better than toilet paper. But there are some inherent flaws that is the property of all self reported studies.

From wikipedia:
Self-reported answers may be exaggerated; respondents may be too embarrassed to reveal private details; various biases may affect the results, like social desirability bias. Subjects may also forget pertinent details.

It is also possible for results to be biased by a lack of respondents, if there are systematic differences between people who respond and people who do not. Care must be taken to avoid biases due to interviewers and their demand characteristics.

"Imagine there's no Heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace

You may say that I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world

You may say that I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will live as one"

People have been known to omit the anti religion lyrics in this song.

There was a patch coming for PC and it's never going to arrive:
http://forums.2kgames.com/forums/showthread.php?t=88830

I would suggest people keep this pc gamer travesty in mind when bioshock infinite comes out. Think twice.

DNF is not a pc centered fps, it's a console centered fps. You will be lucky to have decent configuration options in the pc version.

News Comments > On Metacritic Scores
3. Re: On Metacritic Scores Oct 4, 2010, 21:50 Overon
 
Yes metacritic scores aren't perfect. In fact using reviews in which the reviewers don't even use a quantity for a the rating and having to assign a numerical value to their review is not the best of ideas. However one can still get a consensus score and the more reviews there are the more reliable the score will be. That is the key, the more reviews the better the consensus. And that is what I look at when I look at metacritic or gamerankings. How many reviews make up the score. That is the most reliable method we have.

I am not one to put a lot of stock into opinions on forums. Opinions on forums such as this tend to be at the extreme ends of the spectrum. I look for the consensus opinion and many reviews for a game on metacritic give me that.

I don't agree about the game being overrated. Read the positive reviews, read the negative reviews and decide which one you are likely t agree with.

Where is the teacher that comes ends the verbal feud in the schoolyard?

None of these guys as high level executives inspire my confidence in their respective companies. They are children. Not someone you want to lead companies.

When they see each other in public at some convention, maybe there will be a fight that's posted to youtube.
