News Comments > The Uwe Boll Totally Awesome Videogames Filmmaking Competition
2. Re: The Uwe Boll Totally Awesome Videogames Filmmaking Competition Aug 22, 2009, 11:22 ldonyo
 
Putting 'Totally Awesome' and 'Uwe Boll' in the same sentence should be a felony. Given the fact that Boll can't make a movie worth watching, how will he be able to pick the better of two trailers? Hell, he could start by following the first bit of 'advice' he gave in that video clip!

Whose definition of 'offensive' are they going to use? Does that mean you can't make a Wolfenstein-inspired trailer because someone will find swastikas offensive? By the same token, that would probably rule out a Left 4 Dead trailer set in the deep South, as well.

News Comments > Livingstone: Used Games "No Benefit"
7. Re: Livingstone: Used Games Aug 20, 2009, 11:57 ldonyo
 
Used games have no benefit alright, but only to the publishers of the games. To consumers and retailers, used games have a tremendous benefit! Consumers can trade or sell games they no longer wish to own for games they would like to own. Retailers provide a market for this activity.

What publishers fail to realize is that the used games market provides access to many titles that are no longer available. Used games also provide a less expensive way to "get caught up" with a particular game franchise, especially one with many titles in it.

Why does anyone at Activision let Kotick ever speak to another human being? Kotick makes it sound like Activision thinks EA has the right idea about only releasing tired sequels to ancient franchises. Of course, EA is losing money faster than a drunken sailor in a brothel. Maybe Kotick wants to try that, too.

News Comments > Interplay Classics on Steam

I prefer gog.com over Steam for the oldies like Fallout. I prefer not using GoG's installer as I am not a fan of Adobe Air, or much of anything else Adobe for that matter.

Sony once again shows just how much their customers really mean to them. This is a level of disdain not seen since Sony thought it was okay to install rootkits on PCs via music CDs.

And EA knows a monster when they see one, because they look in the mirror every day.

Is Sony planning on a serious price reduction, then, because that's what it would take to get people to buy their hardware. Well, that and games worth playing.

For that price I might give this one a shot. At least they aren't trying to be like Activision and price themselves out of the market.

News Comments > On Modern Warfare 2 Pricing
16. Re: On Modern Warfare 2 Pricing Aug 18, 2009, 23:10 ldonyo
 
That's just crap and Activision knows it. I don't play many FPS games to begin with and now I'll make sure to double check the publisher before I make any new game purchases. Out of spite, I may buy several Activision titles on eBay, just so I know they aren't getting my money.

I'm playing through the first one again to get Shepard up to 60th level before this comes out. On a separate note, I thought all Krogan were blood-hungry?

The Hellgate: London beta was just like this. That was Bill Roper, too. I wonder just how closely Champions Online will mirror Hellgate's very short and painful lifetime?

Nothing like making a prediction about how things will be 10 years from now. Sweeney and Pachter should take their shows on the road. Does Epic have anything coming out soon or is Sweeney just trying to keep the company in the public eye?

I hope Bethesda and Zenimax are just doing a preemptive domain registration blitz to keep the squatters at bay. I also hope that it is nothing more than that.

They're spending like drunken sailors if their losses are that high this year versus the profit they made last year over the same period.

Unfortunately, Sony hasn't figured out that the DRM they use on everything else needs to go, too.

Why in God's name does IndustryGamers give a hack "analyst" like Pachter a forum to spout his nonsense "predictions" from? The guy could predict needing a tissue after sneezing without getting it wrong! They might as well find Miss Cleo and get her to make predictions.

Best Buy never honors pricing mistakes until you sue them in small claims court. Then, you usually get the deal you were after, but you have to sign an NDA and can't tell anyone about it.

If Linux is ever as easy to use as Windows then tech sites will include Linux in their reviews. Until that happens, there is no point in reviewers killing themselves for the four or five readers that use Linux exclusively.

I find it ironic the a game called Greed Corp will be available on Sony's PSN.
