Comment Interstate 76 (Score 1) 1120

Take GTA, stick it in the south west, turn the clock back 30 years, and glue the radio to funk.

Then add cannons.... lots and lots of cannons.

I'd love to see all of the south west render before my eyes, filled with auto villains. Then, network with my auto vigilante friends to take them all style!

Comment System Shock! (Score 4, Insightful) 1120

System Shock was too far ahead of it's time. The interface was inventive, but not in a good way. The creatures were scary, but had no AI to speak of. The graphics were cutting the 90's. And they game play has inspired the industry in so many ways, what would happen if the industry returned that inspiration?

Comment Get a Mini (Score 1) 520

In EU models of the Mini Cooper, especially the Cooper D, you get many of the features of the Hybrid with out the battery:

1. Regenerative breaking (using the alternator to charge the battery)
2. Stop/Start engine (stop the engine at intersections, then, using the energy recovered from breaking, start it back up on demand)
3. Awesome milage

Of course, the USA model doesn't have these features. I'll leave you to speculate why.
