    Console Gaming annihilates PC Gaming in '07

    When I say obsolete, I mean severe lacking of high budget, high production, big name games that everyone buys and plays. Quake, Unreal Tournament, and Half-Life are starting to shift their marketing towards the console banner. They cane make big bucks not only on the game, but on professionally made map packs via PSN and XBLA. The Orange Box came out the same day for PC and 360. Then again Steam is the only financially viable platform on the PC. Freeware games? Those are more of time killers than a source of entertainment. I've tried so many freeware games back when I didn't have a constant flow of money to put into gaming. My desperate need for new material was never satisfied.

    Console Gaming annihilates PC Gaming in '07

    Console games have been beating PC games for a while now. The lead just grew, and with the blockbuster hits that are coming out in 08 that will not be on the PC, I doubt the numbers will be anymore favorable to the PC stats. The game may work for the PC, but someone that buys an Xbox360 game is going to play it on the 360, because they have a 360 that has the right specs for the game to run flawlessly. The percentage of those that will play it on the PC is very small. As far as I know, the only games that are double compatible are 1st party Microsoft games, because MS has a computer gaming division. It saves them money from having to release two formats of the same game, a cost cutting move. Systems were build on the PC model to beat PCs which they have successfully done. The Gaming market is still heavily single player, the FPS genre is the one that had been geared mostly towards multiplayer with the slowly decaying fighting genre in pursuit. Essentially its the computer gamers that are harming their own beloved market. pirating games isn't like downloading free music. A music artist hardly makes a dime off their record sales, the recording studio does... so even if the studio goes out of business, the artist will always be there to make more material. In the gaming world, the studio is the artist and once it dies... like many have, there is no new material.

    Console Gaming annihilates PC Gaming in '07

    If there are no sales in the PC gaming market because its all illegally downloaded, why would developers keep supporting PC gaming though? If the reason PC games don't sell as well, is the one provided, PC gaming will indeed become obsolete to the point that only one genre will be constant (MMORPGs). Companies flock to where the money is at.

    Yeah, it really is made for Rambo fans. Sometimes thats how it should be done, because movies get screwed up for the sake of trying to get "new fans"

    Console Gaming annihilates PC Gaming in '07

    See, I have the opposite view. I got tired getting to play a few computer games and within a few months my computer couldn't run the newest games at their maximum level. I just grew tired of spending time toning down all the graphics, just to play a game. I rather just pay one large sum every 4-8 years on a new console and play games that all run at a consistent level. the PC offers no limit for the developers, while the Console boxes them into certain parameters. They push the limits and I think the challenge makes for better games. I guess for MMOs it is a double punch on Xbox when it comes to fees. A subscription to Xbox live is the equivalent of buying 1 game a year. $80 for a game? sheesh I hope its a special edition pack or something.

    "Mass Effect" is a porno game...wtf

    What is even more pathetic is that these people are completely wasting their time. Probably none of them play video games, and along with the fact that children are such a small percentage of the gaming market, they really aren't going to accomplish anything. They don't even seem to have a goal, besides pissing me off with a bunch of whining. Infact, the joke is on them. As always, stirring up controversy will only make people want to see for themselves. The game will probably sell even more now.

    Shes gonna apologize now that her book ratings have been under attack on every book selling website by enraged gamers. X'D Fox News and EA are butting heads big time. This reminds me of the whole Oprah vs. Mortal Kombat ordeal when it first came out.

    3 Musketeers Chocolate Brownie

    I had a Snickers Charged bar today. Its snickers with caffeine. It just tasted like a snickers with a small hint of energy bar. It was slightly smaller than a regular bar as well. http://www.typetive.com/candyblog/item/snickers_charged/

    Official Star Trek Teaser!

    I trust in JJ Abrams, Hes done some fantastic work. Star Trek has really hit rock bottom since Gene Roddenberry passed away. I think they picked the right guy to do it. TNG really got robbed of its big screen glory because of it. I think he is doing the right thing by completely shutting everyone out of what he is doing. Its very tight lid, the Teaser blew me away because I didn't even know what it was until the final pan up of the Enterprise. Spock http://comingsoon.net/nextraimages/spockstartrek.jpg there was a blurry Kirk picture but I cant find it now.

    Star Trek film names Kirk actor

    Ah yes, that is at the end of the teaser trailer. You can find the bootleg on youtube, but its terrible quality. I saw it at Cloverfield two nights ago. I didn't want to post it until a direct feed version was available.

    Star Trek film names Kirk actor

    Nothing is showing up 0-o.. must have an anti-leech script on that site.

    It basically does an outstanding job of realistically portraying what people would really do if such an outrageous thing happened. No over dramatization, and no secret military weapons to bust out on the monster. The movie focuses more on a group of friends and their experience rather than the monster attacking the city. I thought it was a solid production. JJ Abrams does top notch work and this was no exception. btw, It shows you were the creature came from... you just had to catch it in the brief moment it was visually explained...

    Late Shows - Writers = Sucks

    A clever media tactic to put all the heat on the guild. People are stupid, and they will believe anything on TV. The Guild is a bunch of writers... they don't have access to be on TV like the people they were working for do so naturally the public image disadvantage goes to the guild.
  22. A remake of the NES classic will hit PSN and XBLA before the sequel is released. More moves, more weapons, and most importantly... CO-OP!

    Late Shows - Writers = Sucks

    I have respect for Leno because he paid his staff out of his own pocket. The Writers Guild should be be given shovels to dig a trench so they can all be machine gunned into it. Striking is one thing, but sabotaging the man's show and calling on others to do so is sick. Whether his show is bad or good without them, He did what no other host did... used his own money so his staff could have a Christmas. TV was crap with the writers guild, There won't be much difference without them. There is at least 5 years of movie scripts left for Hollywood, and countless others that may have never been considered before. This is a battle that is going to be hard for them to win. 5 years is a long time to go without a paycheck. People are finding other ways to make TV without them. Sooner or later they may come to the realization they don't need the Guild anymore. I hope they do.
