The pricing for the 360 games on demand service isn't bad, but it is no better than going to get the Platinum Hits versions of those same games. GameStop probably has used copies of all of those titles for half the price MS will be asking and you don't need BS MS points to get them.

Activision needs a serious reality check if they think they can keep the same sales numbers and raise prices. EA and Sony both used to think they could do no wrong and look where that got them.

EA would like to see anything that might stop them from bleeding red ink every quarter. If they get really desperate, they might even try releasing games that aren't full of bugs, crippled by DRM or just plain don't suck, but they'll have to get to that level of desperation first.

EA would probably lose a lot less money every year if they stopped pumping out craptacular movie tie-in games.

open-world debauchery game

That's pretty funny, Blue!

What would players do? See how much they can eat at a $4.95 buffet followed shortly by a trip to the emergency room? See if they can spot the transvestite hookers among the female ones? Count the number of shows with topless dancers in them (or the ones without, which might actually be harder)? Spend days or weeks trying to hit the big slots jackpot? Count the Elvis impersonators? What fun!

That clip pretty much summarizes every movie he has ever made.

Apple seems to be much worse than Microsoft ever was. It seems to be okay, though, because Apple's customers are the ones being treated like shit.

That's why he develops games and other people market them. Plus, he works for Nintendo. They hardly distribute anything digitally.

I'll add this to the nonsense like the mouse will only last two more years, which was predicted about 7 years ago ...

Word may go away one day, but it isn't going to be any time soon.

Downloaded it this morning using the GFWL front end and manually copied it from my profile folder to the Fallout 3\Data folder. Once I finish up in the swamps of Point Lookout, I'll be on my way to MZ!

Bill O'Reilly is not a moral barometer or a "culture warrior" by any stretch of the imagination!

I am in total agreement that Michael Pachter is the number one fraud in gaming. This guy makes Miss Cleo look like she really is psychic!

Apple's iPad Tablet would only slay smartphones, eBooks and Netbooks if Apple prices it reasonably. However, since we're dealing with Apple, it will probably be priced like a Macbook Pro.

I agree, delays that improve the game are good and there have been a number of titles in the last few years that would have been vastly improved had there been a delay of their release. I also agree that everyone trying to release for Christmas is just plain dumb. The recent announcements regarding titles that have been pushed into next year has been very welcome news to me.

Delays that are due to the publisher and/or developer trying to find funding to finish the game usually end up in a half-baked release of beta code that gets almost no support, doesn't sell well and usually ends the developer, the publisher or both.

Many countries have laws that forbid children being put into harms' way, which would explain a dearth of children in games not meant for them. Also, just how were the custom characters "randomly" created and by whom? Was it a white adult male, perhaps?

As to, "Our thoughts about why are all informed guesses.", I would have say that their thoughts as to why are very UNinformed guesses.

I'm looking forward to the game. I'm also happy to see that you do not need a supercomputer to run it.
