Whether they spoil in the heat, freeze in the winter, or get taken out by a human-friendly venue of vultures, a zombie outbreak is unlikely to succeed. Here's 7 reasons why we should stop worrying about the shambling dead and start concentrating on a real threat: sparkly vampires.
Why does it always have to be one or the other? I have a PC and a PS3.
Ubisoft has announced that the next stand-alone Assassin's Creed title will come out next year, and it will be the first in the series to come with an online multiplayer mode. The company also said it will be "shoring up its focus on competitive AAA core titles on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3" in the coming year, making mention of upcoming releases for the Tom Clancy game series and a new Prince of Persia title.
An article in the Guardian asks whether the focus of modern games has shifted away from having a clear-cut ending and toward indefinite entertainment instead. With the rise of achievements, frequent content updates and open-ended worlds, it seems like publishers and developers are doing everything they can to help this trend. Quoting: "Particularly before the advent of 'saving,' the completion of even a simple game could take huge amounts of patience, effort and time. The ending, like those last pages of a book, was a key reason why we started playing in the first place. Sure, multiplayer and arcade style games still had their place, but fond 8, 16 and 32-bit memories consist more of completion and satisfaction than particular levels or tricky moments. Over the past few years, however, the idea of a game as simply something to 'finish' has shifted somewhat. For starters, the availability of downloadable content means no story need ever end, as long as the makers think there's a paying audience. Also, the ubiquity of broadband means multiplayer gaming is now the standard, not the exception it once was. There is no real 'finish' to most MMORPGs."
I don't know, but I might have to call BS on the 700+ people who claim to know fifteen or more infect people.
Sounds good as long as it doesn't compromise the foods shelf life in any way. The skin on fruits and vegetables is a barrier against pathogens. If the skin is broken or marked the fruit will spoil much faster.
Holy mackerel the Nano looks great!
I think we are thinking too deep into this. I wonder how we ever got by before multiplayer.
very few people realize the power that sits in the palm of their hands these days. The computational power of a cell phone is vastly superior to that of computers that used to fill entire rooms! More people need to appreciate whats really going on here. It's not just a computer, it's a calculator. A very fast calculator crunching huge amounts of numbers for YOU. There is a machine in your pocket flipping trillions of 1's and 0's! It's nothing short of a miracle that we have learned to harness electricity in this way and on such a small scale.

nate_in_ME writes "After getting a positive from the AVG virus detector while playing music on iTunes just a few minutes ago, I did a bit of research. It appears that AVG has recently pushed an update to the virus definitions that flags every iPod/iTunes related file as being infected with the 'Small.BOG' trojan. Interestingly enough, AVG does not have any information on this particular virus in their virus encyclopedia. Discussion on the Apple forum is up to 4 pages and climbing. One user there had an interesting thought: 'Maybe Palm has some shares in AVG...MUAHAAAA!!' (on page 3)."
Dalambertian writes "The release of Spore's Patch 5 lets players export their creatures (and soon vehicles and buildings) in Collada format. This includes textures, bump mapping, and rigging for animation. Maxis developer Ocean Quigley recently posted a nice tutorial for getting said creatures into Maya, and other 3D packages are soon to follow. This could have a huge impact on the games industry, and the indie games scene in particular. Unfortunately, if the patch falls under the usual EULA, then any legitimate use of the art assets outside of the Spore community becomes impossible. EA is apparently just teasing us with its taste-but-don't-swallow policy, and at present it's not clear whether the genius that came out of Spore's development will ever truly be accessible to the game dev community."
Hahaha. Only the people who played with the microwave would understand. Seriously, Who didn't play with the microwave? This is a sort of nostalgic comedy
Precisely. The definition of the word Immersed is "To engage wholly or deeply". This can be done with or without good graphics. Some people just can't wrap their heads around a game that doesn't have pixel shaders and z-buffers. I recently started playing Final Fantasy VI(a two dimensional sprite based game) and I am completely immersed.
"I also put the 1983 storage and speeds in 2009 terms, for the benefit of the youngin's out there." Thanks for moving the decimal for us. 2Ghz is 2000 Mhz no matter what
