...That comparison is not very good at all because brick & mortar stores always kept a conservative stock of current games only in maybe an aisle or two at most...


What utter bullshit. Egghead/Babbages had ancient games even in the 90s when stuff on CDs was popular. They had whole isles full of shit like "You don't know Jack". Full isle of trivia and chess and other crap. Later on when BB actually had PC games 75% of them were shit.

You're full of shit.

Further...I can't believe you would rather have someone else determine what is appropriate for your consumption.

Accept what is deemed appropriate by someone else.

or...

Take the responsibility and time to determine what I think is appropriate for me.

I'll take the later as opposed to the bleached version.

EDIT: What I mean is I think it's awesome that Steam will put garbage on the platform provided it's not blatant shovel ware asset flipping crap. The idea I get from it is if something is distasteful it isnt for someone else to decide.

Gotta love the typical BN negative comments.

Trailer looks awesome. If they can keep the nutty stuff at 110% for the whole game and add in a cliche, corny story, along with over the top J.J. Abrams effects I'll buy it just to offend people.

Apparently there's something known as "Computer Elbow" (similar to Tennis Elbow). Might be that. I know I've had elbow pain on occasion, and my job has me typing all day.

I get that when I get a few days off and decide to do a couple marathon gaming sessions. I can press on the outside of my elbow joint to get a bit of pain. For me, it's probably just a pinched nerve because one Valium before a night of sleep takes care of it. Before you ask, I have a back and neck injury from letting a noob get me in a choke so he could practice. He absolutely wrenched on me. Anyway, I take one pill like every 3 or 4 months when I get an aggravating pain that wont go away after a few days.

One other thing Blue. Seeing as this site has been around for so long, ya know you could be suffering from old age

I envy that you can bbq and grill. The smoke gives me an asthma attack. I can't even be around a fireplace or campfire.

Wear a respirator. You can pretend you're grilling in a post-apocalyptic world.

There is no 'best experience' with everquest anymore when after 10+ years people are still camping out rooms in lower Guk.

LOL must get those boots!

EDIT: Oh wait...that was Najena. Damn. So much camping.

That was the one lame part. If you needed someting from a specific spot be prepared to wait DAYS to get on the list to get into the group that was camping a specific spot only to sit there to kill a group of 4 mobs then sit on your ass for 30 minutes till they spawned again...only to NOT drop the shit someone needs :p

Don't get Landmark. It's amazing they're actually still selling it. I think it's a crime. It's not a game. It's a tech demo.

As for Everquest... It's where I "popped the cherry" so to speak, with mmos. So many awesome memories. But that was so many years ago. If it's the same experience as it was near the beginning then I say hell yea go for it, but I'm tempted to believe it's only harcore people still playing so you won't get the vanilla experience of traveling from Qeynos to Freeport for the first time. It was actually scary. Especially knowing that if you die and you can't get back to your corpse in time you lose everything.

So many memories :p

How the fuck do you hack a VW Bus or old Camero?

Agreed. I get the whole suspension of disbelief thing, but a game that "looks" like something that could happen in the near future needs to comply to certain rules.

I can see a new tesla car just starting up and moving, but a 50 YO VW bus?

GTFO

lol, I really hope VR just tanks and goes Virtual Boy and you're all stuck playing in 2D with shit frame rates at a needlessly high res for the next 10 years bwahahahaha

pc gamers sure deserve no less after collectively shitting on 3D like they did...

3D as in the 3d monitors that you need to wear those special glasses? I have a giant 3d tv. I used the glasses exactly once before I chucked them.

3d will only work when we get something like a holographic image. simulating 3d on a flat screen is a novelty at most.

I'm 100% sitting this one out till there is a standard.

Better tech should drive the competition, not who can have the better exclusive killer app.

I believe the guy in the trailer is just a random dude at EA headquarters on his knees begging for less console drivel and mod support for the PC.

Of course he is just about to catch a bitch slap from the current EA CEO, who's name is Cash DLC McDiamonds, I believe.

I forgot about that. These large publishers are so focused on immediate cash they fragment their playerbase with dozens of maps etc.

Who was the first one to do this expansion fracturing?
The one I think of is id with Q3 Team Arena.

1942 redux.

'cause redoing stuff is the new new.

Not that I'm complaining. If they can redo that simple formula they would clean house.

There's a reason that game did so good.

I don't understand why people that read the books would hate the TV series.

Yea, there's some stuff that doesn't follow the books, but the big parts are all spot on. Stuff like the scene between the viper and the mountain could not have been better.

EDIT: 12 minutes!!!

I miss the days of logging into my favorite QW/TWCTF/Q2/Q2LMCTF/Q3A/UT Etc. server so I could duke it out with/against people that I would see all the time. The community used to be so awesome. We'd even swap over to teams that were getting wiped out to even the odds.

Remember when people used to actually switch teams to even things up mid battle?

That shit is all gone. Now its just click a button and play with a bunch of random people.

What the fuck is a religious site doing reporting on gaming news? Bizarre. I suppose next we'll see WeButcherCows.com covering interior design or AnalBleaching.com covering genocide in Rwanda.

religion/command&conquer

Makes perfect sense to me.
