Nov 28th 2007 2:17AM Would a large third party company please hurry up and "rethink" this patent/idea and release it for a sane price.
I would buy the 47 key option, and possibly even the 10 key option...but not for more than oh say...$350-$400.
A large company could sell these at this price, easily, and still make a profit.
Do it logitech. Please. I want my goddamn WoW action bars on OLED's on my keyboard damnit.
Nov 21st 2007 2:13AM "911 Emergency how can i help?"
"Hello this is Lord British at the Brittania Manor on elm street"
"Okay...now how can i be of service?"
"Em i appear to be having some kind of debilitating heart attack or seisure"
"Okay the ambulance is on its way, where are you in the house right now?"
"I'm currently in secret room 7G"
"Secret room 7G...just take the secret spiral staircase with the entry underneath the pantry all the way up to the 3rd floor. When you get there, move the small sculpture with all the eye's embedded in it, in an anti-clockwise manner until you hear a click. That means the panel behind you will have opened and you can come inside and help me."

Nov 19th 2007 8:15PM A nice image there to counter-act the stereotype that i all too often get referenced these days.
The fat evil gamer from the south park WoW episode
Nov 19th 2007 8:12PM I'm sure a certain demographic will enjoy them.
Just because i hate teenage horror films doesn't mean that every pubescent 14 year old wont love them, despite generally being the most tasteless and horribly badly made genre of movie ever concieved.
Nov 19th 2007 7:55PM I like the halo universe you idiot. Hence why i've read all the books. Yes i generally have a hard time filling the hours and i wouldn't generally pick this kind of book as a prime time reading for me, but like i said...just filling the hours.
I'm not insulting your precious haloverse okay. I like halo games and the storyline/lore of them as much as the next guy...
I'm just saying the books are a massive pile of shite.
And @ Spartacus. Yeh i know that this happens often, i mentioned this kind of fad in the original post, but this is the most recent and most profound example i can think of....And certainly the first time for a video game book to have such popularity.
Anyway, dont get me wrong, i've nothing against anything other than the book. It (and all the other halo books) were pretty damn terrible and doesn't deserve to be on any best sellers list.
Nov 19th 2007 7:25PM I downloaded it off this fancy internets thing.
I wouldn't buy this piece of shit. In fact i wouldn't even read it unless i was horribly bored all day.
Nov 19th 2007 7:07PM Well i must say, this news makes me fairly embarassed to be a gamer.
The fact that just because this book is attached to a massively popular franchise, it will sell well enough to make into the NY times best sellers list, despite being a fucking turd of a book (try and disagree with me on that, i dare you. The book was fucking terrible, same as all of the halo books...I've read them by the way).
Seriously. Its silly that such a terrible book can sell so well, just because its being backed by ignorant gamers that wouldn't know the difference between shakespeare and a bumper sticker.
I suppose its like any other fad, if it has the coverage one way or another, it will sell, even if its terrible (da vinci code anyone?). This just seems like a particularly bad case of that fact.
Nov 18th 2007 2:39PM Holy shit and usually i'm the grammar whore.
Oh well. I can't always be right :P
