    • The Truth of Economics...

      10 years ago

      duffman8472

      "...There are no rules, no scientific absolutes. You win, you lose, it's a total crapshoot. The only rule that ever made sense to me I learned from a History, not Economics, professor at Warton. 'Fear,' he used to say, 'Fear is the most valuable commodity in the universe.' That blew me away. 'Turn on the TV,' he'd say. 'What are you seeing? People selling their products? No. People selling the fear of you having to live without their products.' Fuckin' A he was right. Fear of aging, fear of loneliness, fear of poverty, fear of failure. Fear is the most basic emotion we have. Fear is primal. Fear sells..." - From the book "World War Z" by Max Brooks(which is 100% awsome smiley0.gifsmiley13.gif )

      edit: I'm reading World war Z right now so thats why i haven't been posting the past few days and probably won't post much the next few

    • Never mind that poll...

      10 years ago

      duffman8472

      I'm definately not going to purchase a game that was called, "Possibly the worst RTS every made". and didn't rank higher than a 2/10 in any review I read. The PC reviews are worse than the Console ones, but the console version was described as, "a disapointment to the genre, at best". I'd rent it but Blockbuster (quite rightly) didn't get any copies of the game for rent... so looks like i'm gonna buy Empire: Total War unless anyone else has any suggestions... and i only just realized now that i didn't tell you i was talking about Stormrise smiley6.gif

      ... MILK WAS A BAD CHOICE"

      hi everybody. it is so god damn hot outright now... ok so it's like 20 C, but it's extremely humid and the past week it had only been like 5 or 6 degrees. To make matters worse this hospital still has the heaters running in some areas, specifically the area where i was working smiley5.gif ...

      anyway i just bought a new game off the bargain PC game wall at EB, so you can look foreward to another magnifisantly written mini review on thursday smiley6.gif

      and I leave you with a quote from a song I have stuck in my head:

      "When light no longer rose to kiss me,
      I swore to tear Heaven asunder.
      As flights of fallen angels wished me:
      Godspeed on the Devil's Thunder"

    • Funny scene from a tv show...

      duffman8472

      "Shepard Book: What are we up to, sweetheart?

      River Tam: Fixing your Bible.

      Book: I, um...

      [alarmed]
      Book: What?

      River Tam: Bible's broken. Contradictions, false logistics - doesn't make sense.

      [she's marked up the bible, crossed out passages and torn out pages]

      Book: No, no. You-you-you can't...

      River Tam: So we'll integrate non-progressional evolution theory with God's creation of Eden. Eleven inherent
      metaphoric parallels already there. Eleven. Important number. Prime number. One goes into the house of eleven eleven times, but always comes out one. Noah's ark is a problem.

      Book: Really?

      River Tam: We'll have to call it early quantum state phenomenon. Only way to fit 5000 species of mammal on the same boat.

      [rips out page]

      Book: River, you don't fix the Bible.

      River: It's broken. It doesn't make sense.

      Book: It's not about making sense. It's about believing in something, and letting that belief be real enough to change your life. It's about faith. You don't fix faith, River. It fixes you."

    • Godfather II...

      10 years ago

      duffman8472

      I rented The Godfather II (the game) yesterday and have to give it two thumbs up. It reminds me of a couple of games. It plays like a "Grand Theft Auto" game, but only in the sense that its free roaming and the combat is pretty much the same(with the exception of finishing moves). The game it reminds me most of is a strategy game from the time of windows 98, called "Gangsters". The point of this game was to build up your gang train your men with the skills that you needed and extort/intimidate/kill your way to control of New York by taking over crime rings and so on.

      This game takes the exact same direction, with the one difference of you actually leading you men into battle(Though you can send them to do things on their own)... like the old saying goes, "The leader who stays in the rear, takes it in the rear"(<-who can tell me what movie that quote was from smiley6.gif ). I've only played for a couple hours, but there seems to be very few missions. Mainly you simply have to take control of the city from what ever crime family your up against. to do this you have to steal their businesses to make money and upgrade you "Family Members".

      Some people would describe this game as a third person shooter, but that wouldn't be correct. It's an RTS/business game more than anything else, but with the entertaining distraction of shredding people apart with a tommy gun. oh, that reminds me the combat graphics are very well done. i walked into a shop at one point. I walked straight up to a guard and shot him five times in the chest. Not only did he react to each hit realistcally and not only did the blood splatter all over the wall. He also had five, fairly realistic, bullet holes excactly where I had shot him...

      In conclusion anyone who finds the idea of a simplified "Grand Theft Auto" with the strategy and Business aspects of a classic Gangster game appealing in any way then i strongly recommend this game...


      Edit: OMG!!! another person is watching me. I'm up to 10... i think you guys are just starting new acounts and watching me to freak me out smiley6.gif . I mean come on, i'm not that interesting... am I?

      double edit: incase anyone is wondering what i meant by "fairly realistic, bullet holes", i meant that they look real except they are all exactly the same size and shape. Which doesn't happen in reality smiley6.gif

      Nine people are now stalking(watching) me smiley7.gif

      i'm starting to get scared... i mean if they attack i can take 9 or 10 at once, but any more is getting alittle overwhelming...

      Mabey it has something to do with the fact that i tell people to watch me in my profile.........................no, that can't be it. It's obviously a Government plot to keep tabs on my every move... DAMN YOU STEPHEN HARPER!!! smiley6.gif
