As Game Informer (and many other outlets) recently reported, it looks like the second season of Xbox Live's "1 vs 100" will be its last. I'm really sorry to see it go, actually, though as Dan Americh reported, it was a *lot* of work to pull off. I didn't play it every week, though I tried to get in there a lot. I also enjoyed playing the "bonus" rounds that were done during the week, just to get players points and to also help decide who would be in the Mob or "The One" chair when the show was actually on.
As many of you know, Activision president Bobby Kotick has reiterated his desire to charge the typical Call of Duty player for multiplayer capability.
Finally finished Mass Effect 2 last night. I won't spoil it here, so don't worry. You can read on. I have two thoughts on the ending of the game, first as a game and then as a story.
This morning I read Phil Kollar's post about why Alan Wake didn't sell well. It was a pretty good post. Rather than add my 2 cents into the long string of comments at the bottom of that post, I thought I would post my own.
A shoutout to you, the little people...um, I mean great people on this site.
Surprisingly enough, a new study has shown that yes, they do.
Am I the only one who has trouble understanding the dialogue in games a lot of the time? Am I the deaf one?
Wow, the peasants are revolting! You'd think Bobby Kotick had just publicly ordered a mob hit or something.
There's been a lot of hubbub (I really love that word) recently about the user content on this site. Many lament those users who post "meaningless" blog or forum posts, ostensibly just to get points for leveling up on the GI site. (Really, once you're level 5 and your stuff shows up on the front page, is there any real purpose to point whoring? Who cares if you're level 5 or level 6 or level 7?)
What is the point of video games making you do stupid and boring stuff? What games have you played where they make you do them?
