Comment Re:Does that $600 include a ice pack? (Score 4, Insightful) 278

If you think your ass is hurting, how about the asses of all the developers who invested money to make games for it?

You know, if you can't swing $600 for a very new to the market high end luxury item item such as this, or if a total of $1500 blows your meal budget, perhaps you need to spend a bit more of your time, getting some education or working a bit harder to get a job that pays more so that you can afford luxuries like this, rather than gaming....eh?

Oh I make more than enough to pay for something like this. But I also have kids... ... and their mother, aka my wife, is gonna have questions, serious questions, about $1,500+ for a new PC with dorky glasses that shut-out interacting with my family... But never forget a desperate man's ability to spin something. I'll figure something out eventually...

Comment Re:Wish they'd tackle Ringworld instead (Score 2, Interesting) 482

I'm not so sure about Ringworld. If you think about it, not much really happens in the movie that would hold the audience attention. They would have to punch it up with a lot more action. The Ringworld itself held our attention through the book, but I think someone sitting in the theater would be looking for something beyond it after the first 15 minutes of exposure.
