Lame. Space Invaders is getting a lot of praise for its paddle-based gameplay, and now that whole aspect has to be dropped? Looks like it's time to import.

Okay, it's July 23rd… 19 days after the fourth of July can we stop with the fireworks already?

We haven't even had ours yet. Rain delay until September. This is speaking of an official fireworks show, of course, and not the jackholes firing them off in the neighborhood.

This is the Pearls Before Swine I wanted to send, but because of the layout of comics.com, it got archived to another page today:

In this game, can we dust off our Grammys and have tantric sex? Seriously, never heard of the series, but the gameplay videos look pretty cool on the official website. It's like the old adventure games, actually updated with modern animation and interaction.

Wasn't this pretty much Josh Baskin's idea in the movie Big?

When they stumble upon this old house near Dikanka they were hungry but they also were horny, so horny that they were actually planning on screwing this old, old lady who lived in the house and fed them. I don’t know if that’s going to be in the game but it was funny nevertheless.

PS I just remember that actually the old lady wanted to screw those guys and not the other way. Anyway it was long time ago when I read it.

Is this the origin of the joke whose punchline involves a guy eating hot, buttered corn outside a window?

I've had fun with the various Emergency/Firefighter demos, but I've never purchased one. They're pretty cheap, so I need to do that.

... I have the file, but haven't installed it. What is incomplete in it? It crashes? Level doesn't finish? What?

I don't know why it was pulled, but it was very stable on my system and features two complete levels.

I got the first one with my sound card a few months ago. I still need to install it. I've only ever played the demos, and I liked them.

I've hooked the cable to the hitch on the back of the tractor, but I don't know what it's supposed to do.

It raises up the dumbwaiter. I believe you have to start the tractor moving, run and jump in the dumbwaiter, and have it pull you up. I haven't been able to do it just yet, though.

Did you get the razor blade? I found a razor blade on one of the porches, but it didn't add it to my inventory. It picked it up first-person like picking up a chair or something in HL2. The same thing happened the first time I found the key, so I'm wondering if having the razor blade in the inventory is important.

I guess the problem was that I just walked straight into the house. I played again and turned on the power, read the grafitti, went into the barn, and started the tractor. Better, but that was the point it locked up and I had to reboot.

Don't know. I didn't find anything to do. I lost the Frankenstein guy in the first neighborhood--though he kept talking to me like he was there--and I got a baseball bat because of a hint on the screen. After that, I got to the isolated house and found it totally empty. There was a locked door at the top, so maybe if I found the key you found, I could actually locate the gameplay.

I kind of had fun with Dead Man's Hand, so that's not bad.


- zombies seem to just 'spawn' in some places

Mostly, they seem to spawn near holes in the ceiling. I thought the idea was that they dropped down from there.

- can't get instant-kill headshots on zombies, not even with the sniper rifle

I got a few instant-kills with the revolver, but there's not a lot of accuracy here. It shouldn't take three and four blasts from the shotgun at close range to take down a zombie. There should be some head-splattin' at that point. Sometimes there was, but I ended up getting cornered in the bathroom by a zombie who just would not die.

I found a bug where I only had one shell left for the shotgun, but it played the reloading animation for six shells.

It's not a great game and isn't visually attractive, but I like some of the locales. I'll probably get it since it's going to be cheap.

Good article. I've seen a lot of people state that T&A was the selling point as early as the first game, but that wasn't the case and this guy gets it. The only area where I disagree is the quality of the second game, and the author merely mentioned that it is considered by many to be the best. I thought it was a tired retread and quit midway through, never to play another Tomb Raider game. I hope the new game turns things around.

Is it Tommy Hawk or Talon Brave?

The main character is named Tommy. No word on if they kept the "Hawk" part, but it is noted that the game has a serious tone. Too serious to have a joke name, I hope.

Talon is now the name of Tommy's spirit guide.

Gary Whitta (the magazine guy) is working on Prey? Where'd you see that?

It's in the PC Gamer article. He's a scriptwriter for the game.

What do you mean by this? Sorry I haven't read the article yet.

The aliens have laid walkways on the floors and ceilings. Wherever these exist in the world, you can walk on them.

PCGamer has sucked since Whitta left...

He's working on Prey now.

1) No screenshots (whereas there were at least a dozen prey screenshots, including some of the original 1997 work, hehe, how far we've come).

They're going into Valve mode, where they don't show anything until it's time for a release. I think they only let PC Gamer mention Duke because they knew anyone reading about Prey would have Duke at the back of their minds. This way, people get a little update, and can shift their focus back to Prey.
