I doubt an "M" rated game would have made it into Wal-Mart.

Would Oblivion have sold half as many units had it not been stocked by Wallyworld?


Another original post by unbreakable.   :roll:


Since you seem to have nothing to add aside from a personal attack, why don't you do us all a favor and drown yourself in a bowl of soup?

Graham's response, my friends, is a perfect example of "shitting where you eat".  Kudos!


So you answer a 'personal attack'  with a personal attack of your own?

Quote from: "Scott"
Drugs are addictive, are they not?  People start using legal amounts, then they get more, and more, etc.  Once again, you start taxing the system, more arrests, more money to drug dealers, more abuse.


First off, there are several legal substances which are highly addictive, some of which are more harmful than the ones that are illegal.  All drugs are not equal, and not all illegal drugs are even addictive.

I definitely agree some drugs should never be considered for legalization.  But some , specifically pot, should be legalized, taxed and regulated.  In my opinion, alcohol and cigarettes are more harmful than pot, and have far less medicinal applications.

That small of an amount?

Nah they are still going to deal with dealers, but a idiot who has a joint on him will not have to face jailtime now.


The fact that this means that they can take their drug mules right up to the border with a legal amount of drugs and then just slip through makes me unhappy about this.


Why?  Those are fairly insignificant amounts.  Besides, illegal aliens aren't likely to have a 'personal stash', they are more likely to be importing larger quantities meant for US consumption.

Am I the only person considering not getting it just because it's too embarrassing to ask for?
No, I'm right there with you.

Wii is, and I hate to say this... gay.  Sorry.  It's the best word for the situation.

It's like Kingdom Hearts.  I don't give two fucks how deep the story is, or how rich and detailed the combat system is, or how orgasmic the whole experience is.  It's got DISNEY CHARACTERS in it, and sorry, that's too queer for me.  Someone else might be able to overcome the repulsion, and bravo for them, but not me.


Like I told the other guy, grow some fucking testicles. If the name of a new console embarasses  you to the point of not buying the console, you have a LOT more than that to be embarassed about.

The name will most certainly NOT tank this system.  And KD is right, this system is aimed at almost everybody BUT the hardcore gamer (though I'm sure they will be coaxed into a game here and there).  It will still be the first console that I bought day one, no matter what it is called, because my kids and my wife are all excited and intrigued by it (as am I).

2372  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Battlestar Galactica spin-off!!!!! on: April 27, 2006, 06:38:23 AM
As I said out loud when I read it:  Holy Fuck!

Quote
SCI FI Channel announced the development of Caprica, a spinoff prequel of its hit Battlestar Galactica, in presentations to advertisers in New York on April 26. Caprica would come from Galactica executive producers Ronald D. Moore and David Eick, writer Remi Aubuchon (24) and NBC Universal Television Studio.

Caprica would take place more than half a century before the events that play out in Battlestar Galactica. The people of the Twelve Colonies are at peace and living in a society not unlike our own, but where high-technology has changed the lives of virtually everyone for the better.

But a startling breakthrough in robotics is about to occur, one that will bring to life the age-old dream of marrying artificial intelligence with a mechanical body to create the first living robot: a Cylon. Following the lives of two families, the Graystones and the Adamas (the family of William Adama, who will one day become the commander of the Battlestar Galactica), Caprica will weave together corporate intrigue, techno-action and sexual politics into television's first science fiction family saga, the channel announced.

Pre-E3 Contest Month!

Real World Golf Giveaway



As soon as I read it, I knew who had the winning entry, and who are we to get in the way of his recovery?  Let's hear it for 'Knuckled dragger", er, Chaz!

His entry:
Quote
I was born with a condition resulting in exaggerated growth in my arms. Nicknames like "knuckle dragger" have haunted me since grade school. Because of this, I have developed an intense fear of being outdoors in the view of the public. I would love to take up golf, as I enjoy watching it on TV, but I have been unable to find a club short enough to accomodate my unique physical characteristics, and even if I could, I feel that practicing in view of the public would be too traumatic to bear.

Real World Golf seems as though it would solve both my problems. The short club length would be perfect for my arm length, and the ability to practice in my own home would give me the confidence I would need to play on a real course.

It would not be overstating things to say that this package could very well be the key to my recovery.


Thanks again to everybody who entered!



Win a copy of Real World Golf, the first and only game on the PlayStation 2 and Xbox that lets you actually swing a club to hit a golf ball.  Using the unique Gametrak controller, the player has total control over the golf ball.  Ball speed, swing height, and club face angle are all accurately simulated.  All adjustments are made in your actual swing, allowing the user to utilize advance golfing techniques as well. 

Gaming Trend is giving you the opportunity to win this highly interactive golf game.  All you have to do is be a member of our forums (register here) and post in this thread- let us know why you feel you should be the winner of this game.  The person with the most compelling or creative reason will be the winner ("I need a new game" just wont cut it.)  We want to give you plenty of time to come up the best possible answer, so this contest will end on May 11th, exactly a month from the release of the game.

Prize package includes:
1 copy of Real World Golf for Xbox
1 Gametrak controller

Contest is over.  Thank you to everyone who entered.  Here are our winners:

Third Place Winner: ChaoZ, with the entry "Jack Bauer is ambidextrous, but wielding two guns at once just wouldn't be fair."

Second Place Winner: Soulchilde, with the entry "If Jack Bauer and MacGyver where locked in a room with a piece of thread and toothpick while Macgyver was trying to make a lockpick, Jack would kill MacGyver and use him as a lockpick. Jack hates waiting"

And finally,
First Place Winner: Gromit, with the inspired entry "Jack Bauer is Ubisoft's replacement for Starforce. Let's see you pirate games now."


Do you use words like 'datamine' or 'backslash protocol?' Do you lovingly refer to your favorite television program as 'The Jack Bauer Power Hour?' Did you know that the only reason why you are still conscious is because Jack Bauer doesn't want to carry you?

Jack, of course, is the lead character on the hit show, 24. Gaming Trend wants to give you the chance to win an awesome 24 prize pack that includes:

First Prize:

1 copy of the 24: The Game
1 CTU T-shirt

1 24 mug

Third prize:

a keychain

All you have to do is be/ become a member of our forum and post a 'little known fact' about Jack Bauer (like the ones found here). It needs to be original, with extra points going to creativity, especially if it involves gaming. Contest ends in one week (April 19th)

Please keep posts in this thread limited to contest entries. If you want to post questions or comments about the contest, please post them in another thread as this one will be heavily moderated.

I think you are dead wrong on this one.  3rd party devs have almost unanimously come out in favor of it and I think we are in store for some pretty damn innovating games.


Yes they have said they are in favor of itin theory.  But we'll see what they actually produce.  Saying it is cool is one thing, actually taking a chance by creating games for it is something else.


Oh, you mean like the 'chance' they are taking by designing DS games?

Also, realize that the cost of entry in devtime for the Rev is supposed to be considerably less than the rest of the next gen platforms

If they are expecting 3rd party developers to embrace the idea and create games around this unique control model, they are downright stupid (in a business sense, I would like to clarify).

Hah!  well, as a current Mac user who was a diehard PC user for years, I'm willing to bet that this is going to bring more converts over to the software side of things as well.

I'm very happy about this.  I'm much more happy about buying one computer for all of my needs that I can game on too.  My current PC is nothing more than a gaming box (and it hasn't been doing well in that dept for a while now) and web design testing rig.  I just couldn't see myself buying a gaming PC when I need a good powerhouse design rig much more.  Now I can have both biggrin
