Feb 21st 2010 6:56AM Considering the hygiene standards for most nerds, I'd think twice about putting those glasses on.
Jan 21st 2009 10:31PM The reason the PS3 hasn't been hacked is because Sony had the foresight to allow users to install 3rd party operating systems. The people that have historically cracked 3rd party code protection have been the homebrew developers; the pirates merely piggy-backed onto their hard work and benefited. By letting the homebrew developers to run their native code there's nobody left to crack hardware's protection; thus the pirates focused their efforts on other systems.
Oct 17th 2008 11:17AM I would use my free tickets to Amsterdam as a great way to visit Europe for the first time. I'd love to check out Amsterdam's beautiful architecture and canals in addition to their fine coffee shops and museums.

Aug 21st 2008 1:35AM Um, if you buy the 12+1 month card (they can be had for $45 or less) you pay less than $4 a month. Put down the cheeseburger once a month and suddenly you too can afford an XBOX live subscription.
Seriously, I don't understand the myth behind XBOX LIVE hating. For all the flak M$ gets, with LIVE it is remarkably easy to connect with friends regardless of what they're doing on their 360, voice chat with anyone anytime, and more all seamlessly through the dashboard. Sure the 360 has its FAIR share of problems, but at its core, LIVE is a service worthwhile for any console gamer. Sure, VALVe has done a similarly great job doing this with Steam, and since the PC scene is a little different when it comes to online gaming, it is natural that their service is free. Correct me if I'm wrong, but Microsoft foots the bill for all if not many of the XBOX Live services and their required bandwidth. All in all I think its a fairly good deal, considering my experiences with PS3's online capability. I don't even want to bring up the Wii and 'friend codes'. I have the Wii and have played only one online game, SSB: Brawl; I can tell you with certainty I have no plans on reliving that horrible experience again.
Aug 7th 2008 12:17AM I tend to believe that those that resort to calling others 'scrubs' are themselves whatever they believe the word to mean. Any mature player isn't going to resort to petty name calling if they wish to bring a player's lack of skill or what have you into question. Sometimes I really wish Blizzard would create an age-restricted realm, but then I realize that age=/=maturity :[
Aug 7th 2008 12:13AM You're a much nicer person than I am, I would have told that dickwad to shove it after he lost the first roll if he tried to 'make' me roll a second time. One /roll is just as random and valid as the next.

"I hope you've got the proper training because mine is a two-handed staff."
Mar 11th 2008 1:19PM I own Marble Blast on XBLA, and while I much rather prefer playing with the XBOX360 Controller, the mouse and keyboard combo also lends itself well to this game. However, I do not get very good performance ingame...I have a pretty decent rig (C2D E6600@ 2.9GHz, 2GB RAM, ATi x1950xt, XP SP2), maybe I should try the applet in IE instead.
Anywho, here's to free stuff!
