May 13th 2009 4:46PM So this is basically Plants Vs. Zombies?
This looks fascinating, but like most iPhone games it will probably be hobbled by being on the iPhone. I'm really confused as to why people are falling over themselves to play so of the janky ass crap on the platform. Even the good stuff is almost unplayable, and there isn't anything I wouldn't rather be playing on my DS.
Feb 6th 2009 12:06AM I think you guys are missing the point of the scam. It isn't a person returning a big block of wood and saying it's a PS2; it's a person putting that block of wood into a PS2 box and returning that box. It only needs to be good enough to get the weight correct and to fool someone looking through the hole in the box for the bar code. Entirely plausible.
Jan 6th 2009 9:37PM So wait ... they essentially fired all the staff and ended the most interesting part of the brand (the podcasts)?
1up was worth buying because of the staff and the podcasts. The brand itself is pretty meh.
Dec 9th 2007 12:54PM Hi Mike, here's a quick tip:
If you want to sound snarky while posting a comment on a blog don't use "Whilst". At the very least it makes you seem like you're two internet memes behind the curve. And that isn't even factoring in that it was a dumb replacement for the perfectly functional word "While" to begin with.
Also, I know that at least a certain subset of the readership will automatically start reading your message in Shaw Elliot's "Hero of the Web" voice as soon as they see "Whilst".
Dec 9th 2007 12:11PM I bet you dollars to donuts that this is because they're using a bunch of the guitars that they were going to ship to Canada as replacement guitars.
Dec 1st 2007 12:19PM Are we sure that this isn't just Activision paying CNet off to say this?
Mar 2nd 2007 2:06PM I love how an essential element to all of these Kiting videos is a shitty and inappropriate soundtrack.
Jan 5th 2007 5:00PM Um ... not to be a dork. But "All" doesn't start with E.
Dec 28th 2006 8:26PM Was Xenosaga III good?
In short: yes. It was certainly the best in the series. Was it one of 2006's top five games? ... Not so much. If you're being charitable it might show up in the top 15 or so. Maybe.
Dec 14th 2006 1:28PM I'm going to have to agree with number 21. You guys are all kidding right? Grandma's Boy was one of the worst movies I've ever seen. Like House of the Dead bad. The only funny thing in the entire movie was the rap over the end credits that explained the movie scene by scene. The rest was just embarrassing to all involved.
