    Poll: Do you play the single player of Military Shooters?

    Yes. Since the decline in the quality of CoD after MW2 and the IW/Activision drama, I've enjoyed playing them with CoD4 as the benchmark for their quality. After all, CoD4 comes after only Portal and Jesus: http://www.escapistmagazine.com/videos/view/zero-punctuation/24-Call-of-Duty-4...

    Wave Hoax Tricks Gullible iPhone Users Into Microwaving Their Phones

    I've found that iPhone/iOS users are something special. I deal with them at work everyday. Whatever tricks can be played off of their techno ignorance is fine by me. Did you know you can fold up your iPhone and charge it in the Microwave?

    Your favorite free-to-play game

    Hawken, without a doubt. I fell in love with the art style the first time I saw it over a year ago, and I will FINALLY be able to play it on my own machine when I complete my custom PC later this month!

    Poll: Modern Technology and my lack of Excitement over it.

    I don't understand. Do you really want to carry around a: Camera, CD/MP3 player, cell phone, palm pilot, X number of books, and a dedicated gaming device? I don't know about your pants, but I don't have that many pockets. I also don't have the time, money, or outlets to be recharging all of...

    We Really, Really Don't Need New Consoles

    I need a new PC, not a new console. I'm happy with my 360. I need a PC for school to play Hawken, ARMA, and Starcraft, and to work in Maya.

    Video Game Crash?

    It won't happen. There's so much talent in the Indie sector, a "crash" wouldn't be like 80s where no one cares about the cute novelty of video games. A crash might be good- let some air out of the bubble and get these big devs back to making more quality games. They'll have to if they want to...

    Jim Sterling says PS+ humiliates the game industry

    360 online play is superior to PS3. Live has party chat- if you only use party chat to talk to your friends, you basically have a $60 per year phone bill! They have built Xbox Live into a social platform, largely through party chat. Get online, talk to your friends, hang out virtually, play...

    Mechwarrior: Living Legends Pulls the Plug

    What about making Mechassault 3? Mechassault was a major contributor in getting Xbox Live off the ground. If I had a better(newer) PC, I'd be all over Hawken. I would like a western-style mech game to come to the consoles. Done right it would be awesome, with little competition, except from that...

    Do We Live in a Computer Simulation?

    Fair enough. Im more interested in the fact we can even test for something like that.

    Michael Pachter Says Call of Duty is a Failure

    Those are definitely BOLD statements. No way in hell am I going to pay every month to play a game I may not be consistantly playing to begin with. I'll jump through Activisions hoop like a well trained dolphin when they come out with a CoD I don't despise, but you slap a monthly price tag on...

    Do We Live in a Computer Simulation?

    Of course it doesn't actually "change" our perception of ourselves, but "where do we come from" is one of the longest-running unanswered questions of our species, so I don't suggest the "ya, whatever" approach.

    Do We Live in a Computer Simulation?

    http://phys.org/news/2012-12-simulation-idea.html It's being taken as a serious possibility. We are far from the computing power needed to find out, but the idea is being tossed around a bit more. What do you think? Personally, I do think it would explain a few things such as the four...

    Zero Punctuation: Call of Duty: Black Ops 2

    Its been sad to see the decline of the CoD series. From CoD4, which Yahtzee put up with the likes of Portal and Jesus Christ, to this meandering pile of coded nonsense. I immediately hated every character the second they were on screen. One looks like a character from Trailer Park Boys on...
