Re: E3 dead

From what's floating around, it's likely to be supplanted by 10 or more small publisher-based trade shows, likely mostly in LA and mostly at the same time.

Who knows though, there hasn't been a...

Re: Is Sony's Dutch PSP Ad Racist?

Like most of these kinds of stories, the situation isn't quite as dire as it was made out in that special. There are certain clubs in certain countries that have these problems; however, it would be...

Re: Is Sony's Dutch PSP Ad Racist?

1. The Dutch were notorious slavers back in their colonial days. There's also plenty of racial over/undertones in Europe.

2. Of course there's racial overtones to the advertisement. It's the whole...

Re: Germany 2006

Well, not in this case. A deserved victory for Italy, even if I was rooting against them.

Re: Germany 2006

Brazil played like crap. Pekerman screwed the Argentinians by making defensive substitutions. Eriksson screwed the English, period.

At least I had them going out on penalties right.

Re: Germany 2006

Not to mention the possibility of C. Ronaldo missing the match through injury.

England had to be happy to see that match and know they'll be facing a under-strength and likely tired Portugal after...

Re: Severe Bastardization of English Language

English and spelling reform is a very interesting subject.

Anyway, I think the issue here is that moral values are being assigned to a system that exists in an amoral framework. Language can't...

Re: Severe Bastardization of English Language

Well, the point is that "bastardization" is a relatively new word.

The bigger point being that language changes.

Re: Severe Bastardization of English Language

FYI, the technical term is African-American Vernacular English, or AAVE for short. "Ebonics" was the creation of a newspaper reporter.

And AAVE has been accepted as a dialect/language (huge...

Re: Severe Bastardization of English Language

It's not really a bastardization (which doesn't appear in my dictionary, if you're really worried about lexical drift) of "the English language", it's an extreme variation of spelling in written...

Re: Germany 2006

As for where I am, I changed my work schedule to watch the WC live, so my day goes: wake up, watch soccer, go to work, go to sleep, repeat.

It's pretty nice except that I don't get a lot of free...

Re: Da Vinci Code

I didn't say it wasn't enjoyable! It's pretty deliciously silly.

As "secrets" go, both HBHG and DVC are pretty bland. I'm waiting for somebody to make a blockbuster about the Cathars.

Re: Da Vinci Code

The Da Vinci Code is the retarded version of Holy Blood, Holy Grail, which was pretty retarded to start with.

A quick and condescending review in the form of an SAT analogy:

Re: Massive Online Gaming: the future (E3)

As opposed to posting on a videogaming forum on the internet?

Guys, let's try and avoid posts like this. If you're going to be condescending, at least put some effort into it.

Re: Do you prefer movies or sports?

I was waiting to see how long it would take to get the typical "gamer" response to sports*.

5 posts sounds about right.

I'm playing the game on a laptop LCD and I haven't had a single bit of trouble with darkness in caves or in forts, unless I'm playing in the middle of the afternoon on a sunny day. I think I've...

Re: Do you prefer movies or sports?

Is it just me, or is this apples and oranges? As Jet pointed out, it's not like this is a common choice. "Movies or Sports? Oh, what cruel fate!"

Maybe it's a viral marketing attempt to figure out...

Re: Good lord (a PS3 thread)

What he said. Taking the American price from the European price via conversion rates runs completely counter to the way that console-pricing has worked to date.

As a further example, Xbox360...

Re: The Oblivion thread

There's no journal. There's a separate screen for quests in your menu. Actually, there's a screen for your active quest only and then a screen for all quests.

The layout is easy to use and it very...

Re: Wind Waker: most overrated game I've ever played

Put me in as somebody who thinks it's over-rated as well.

Yes, I know. Although I feel that the positives that I noted in my review stand, there were flaws that didn't become apparent to me until...

Re: The Oblivion thread

Nah, I'm much too interested in the mods, patches and expansions that will be easier to do with the PC version.

That, and I don't have an HDTV and really don't see the point of having a 360...

Re: PC gaming - growing into a niche?

The PC gaming scene in America has been niche for a while.

All you need to do is look at number of games released to figure that out.

PCs will still be the cutting-edge experience on the market...

Re: critically-acclaimed games you don't like

I think the difference is that in Metroid II, there's no real fooling around with what you have to do next -- it's pretty straightforward.

In comparison, Super Metroid has the look and feel of...
