This game represents everything I hate about modern games. Apparently we want better lighting, better animations more life-like graphics. This striving for hyper-realism is driving me nuts.

The computer allows us to make everything, and yet we insist on creating worlds that are essentially no different from the one we live in. Where is the weird, the fantastic, the horrible and the wonderful? Why do we settle, when we can have anything? When do we start creating art?


OnLive and Gaikai — How To Stop a Gaming Revolution 125

happierr writes "The gaming industry has been struggling in the last few months, and it is about to struggle even more when OnLive and Gaikai launch later this year. The new services are both a step in the right direction to counter piracy and provide easily-accessible gaming to people with low-end PCs. They might even do for PC gaming what the Wii did for casual gaming; greatly expand the market and draw interest from people who would not ordinarily play games. The services are a real threat for the Big Three video game companies (Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo). How will they combat these revolutionary services? There are a few steps that the Big Three are taking to combat the New Two, such as an increased reliance on peripherals and vision cameras, exclusivity deals, and more online multiplayer features, which OnLive and Gaikai will have a hard time matching."

Amen brother. To quote the great Hoare:

"There are two ways of constructing a software design: One way is to make it so simple that there are obviously no deficiencies, and the other way is to make it so complicated that there are no obvious deficiencies. The first method is far more difficult."

It was true then, it is true now and it will remain true in the future.

Respectful is a word being thrown around a lot by believers of some god or another, but it always means the same thing. Do not question, do not criticize. I am sorry, but I am not buying. People can believe whatever they want - I sincerely do not care. But when they ask me, to "respect" their particular brand of nonsense, I am all too happy to utter the words "Fuck off".

And "some people" would call Madeleine Bunting who is known for her advocacy of religion and her dislike of atheism, well biased. She has gone so far, as to suggest that atheists are unable criticize religion, because - get this - they are atheists! Wow, what a great source for your argument by authority.

Now show one, just one, of the fallacies used by Dawkins.

Didn't think so...
