As long as it's a universal standard and doesn't jack up the price with licensing fees I'm all for it.

It won't be and it will.

The amount of craziness surrounding your service in that area is mind boggling. I don't know of anyone that has as many connectivity issues across all levels of service as you!

Now you know two. I have Suddenlink out to the house at least twice a week and have had them that way for the last 6 months or so. I'd switch...if the only other option wasn't radio at 1.5Mbps and a 10GB hard cap.

Guess they're not getting the pre-order numbers they want. If they had gone with the 40K universe instead, they'd have made eleventy brazillion dollars or does Relic still have that license locked down?

The Black and White games were pretty awesome for their day. Fable was a fun romp, too, for the most part.

All the data of the current/past intercourse will be available on the phone, in the cloud, and for selected advertisement partners of Apple. Enjoy!

That's called a FitDick. I've got 10,000 thrusts today, so far.

Man, your right hand must be HURTING!

That's why he switches off to The Stranger every so often, to lower the risk of RSI.

Yes!

Have you played it? How is it shaping up?

From the videos I have seen, it is coming along well. Much more MOO2 than MOO3.

I have been playing it since it was first released to EA. It's getting better and I do enjoy playing it. While I haven't had a lot of time to spend with Phase 3, the AI was really, really dumb and bordering on being schizophrenic bipolar. The patch notes say they have addressed that.

Off the cuff, it's one of the more enjoyable 4X games that I have played recently but it isn't what you would describe as "hardcore". There's DU for that if you like your games to look like they came out of an 8 year old's summer computer camp with gameplay by the Marquis de Sade.

The developers are really listening to player feedback, the tactical system, for example, got a complete overhaul, and are making changes based upon it. The ability to mute the advisors while still retaining the text is another example. It's shaping up to be a nice addition to the MOO franchise. There are people whom are gnashing their teeth and screaming "But it isn't like MoO2!" No, no it isn't but MoO2 had its own glaring set of flaws that most people overlook due to their rose tinted nostalgia.

I think the studio is doing their best to engender the spirit of MoO while modernizing the gameplay mechanics for the current demographic of the market. I don't know if Steve Barcia or Ken Burd have played it but I imagine they'd be pretty happy with what came of their efforts.

i can see where the devs are based in, but why the whole game has to be Australian?

Because the allusion was that Pandora was just like Australia's first hundred years or so. Prison colony cut loose to survive on its own. It was very shoddily done.

BL1 and BL2 were enjoyable. The first because the novelty of it and because, obviously, Claptrap. The second because it was like getting in to an old pair of slippers. The pre-sequel though, turned me right the fuck off. The accents, more than anything, grated on my ears. I'm okay with the Aussie accent but not for every single fucking character (very nearly). I blame Leigh Diffy for that.

Where is the Shadowrun game that is 1 part Watch Dogs, 1 part The Division and a bunch-a-parts GTA 5?

Hidden behind the $100 million stack of cash that Hare Brained Studios doesn't have.

btw, this is the first time I ever heard the term "black mob" is this going to be more a crime fantasy game then? I mean sure there were gangs, but a black mob?

It's been real in many cities going way back to the Prohibition era. Whom do you think ran smack, weed, bootleg booze, gambling, and prostitution in Harlem?

So, if the Season Pass idea is such a horrendous idea to some people...just don't buy it.

Bummer. In "Grandma's Boy", she was awesome. She was the kind of grandmother that you really wished you'd had.

Gamezone is reporting that Alison Rapp was working as a call girl named Maria Mint. The Maria Mint site is down for maintenance, but the image directories are all still up. The Gamezone analysis used jewelry and mostly covered tats to suggest it was her. Other analysis showed the camera and lens serial numbers match up between the pictures on Maria Mint and Alison's Deviant Art account. I felt the evidence, while solid, could have holes poked into it. Kotaku, for example, ruled the findings inconclusive. So I did my own analysis, looking at marks on her skin. The collarbone moles in this picture of Alison appear to match up with this picture of "Maria." Also, zoom in on "Maria's" chin. There's a set of four small freckles here that take the shape of a trapezoid. Here's a another picture of Alison. Zoom in on the chin, and you'll see the same trapezoidal set of freckles. Looks pretty conclusive to me.

I have no issue with call people. The work should be either legal and regulated or at the least decriminalized. But it's not right that Nintendo is getting lambasted over this when it seems pretty obvious that a company trying to maintain a wholesome image wouldn't want their publicists secretly moonlighting as prostitutes.

It's definitely the same woman. I'm sure word is going to get around fast that directory listing is turned on and, once enough people hit it, it will be turned off. Fortunately, there's a site rip available.
