News Comments > NY Games Bill
17. Re: NY Games Bill Jan 29, 2009, 13:55 sliv
 
SIGN ME UP! WHERE ARE THESE GAMES?!

Why would they try to pass a bill for games that don't exist? I'm guessing for preventative reasons. Within the past few decades what's been considered "normal" has changed dramatically. Just Elvis's head was usually shown on TV because of his 'crazy hip gyrations' they thought unsuitable back then. I'm sure they're proposing it now so it makes it easier to pass based on what's considered "normal" by today's standards and will be harder to overturn when games that include rape, incest and beastiality (really?) start showing up.

Since we've been home with our newborn, we're watching a lot of daytime TV, which is when most retired folks are watching. It seems like every commercial break we're watching Bob Barker, Pat Sajak or some other daytime celebrity tell us that we won't be able to watch our favorite shows.

Actually, today we saw a new one where they're instructing them to ask a neighbor or friend to help them hook it up for them since they may not be technologically savvy or lack brute strength to get behind the tv. This, of course, is with the visual of a strapping young lad hooking up the cable behind the tv while the elderly woman looked on.

Yep, thought of that. . . but it is a family name so I figured that would be okay.

Locked in a fixed rate for two years with TW. Was cussin' about it before when ATT U-verse became available but now I'm pretty happy I won't see an increase.

News Comments > How Publishers Punish Game Sites
32. Re: No subject Sep 7, 2008, 10:58 sliv
 
Without demos to tryout, all you have to rely on is pre-release reviews or, if you can wait long enough, reviews from those who actually bought it and played it. This is only speaking for PC though. Consoles don't have to worry about this since I can go to my local video store and rent it for $7; if I like it I buy it. ...And then everyone wonders why publishers are moving towards consoles.

Concerning the relationship between publishers and the media, this is business as usual. The publishers spend a lot of money and time on a product and then pays the media to advertise it. Hopefully this apparent breakdown will force the publishers to start putting out more demos since they're not able to fully rely on pre-release reviews. The other option is to decide not to develop for the PC at all and push consoles. Of course, there are more ways to advertise than just relying solely on a group of reviewers and then complain when they review it poorly, that's just laziness on the side of the publisher.

Found the fix for the graphics issue, apparently I wasn't the only one.

How well does this game work with a gamepad (xbox 360)?

I haven't been able to get my Logitech Rumblepad 2 (which is like the PS controller) to work. I'm also having graphic issues where their eyeballs and hair move before or after the rest of the model and also seeing random flashes of code on the screen. I used to play this game with my old 7800GT and worked flawlessly, it would be hard to believe my 9600GTC is causing all of the problems.

Neither a or b since I've never been able to successfully load up Creative's drivers and have had to use third party drivers. Since I have the Audigy 2 platinum and use the LiveDrive daily I have no interest in buying another $100+ sound card for zero performance increase. It's just annoying to have to jump through all the hoops just to get it running.

And I love how Creative stepped up to the plate to give Audigy 2 cards full Vista support by updating all their drivers. Oh, wait...

“Can anyone explain to me how having one console would be bad for gamers? Or game developers for that matter?,”

I think the hidden meaning is that last sentence. Gamers want competition, it's what keeps things interesting. Developers just want to get lazy. Sure we can just call it the P-Wii 360, that sounds catchy. The next thing they'll want is a standardized spoken language so they don't have to make multi-language support. . .

I remember when I saw "Demolition Man" and the winner of the restaurant wars was Taco Bell. My first thought was "oh, I hope not!"
