    Oddly enough, that's how Ebert described The Raid too, in his one-star review: a video game that spares its audience the inconvenience of playing it.

    I read a couple articles today that reminded me of this 'discussion', if I may so dignify it.

    First some Ally Fogg:

    Because that company would probably screw it up and taint the IP in the process.

    Nintendo farms out its IPs sometimes. So does Microsoft. There are probably others.

    Also, "IP swapping" sounds...

    You are a common criminal. Of course, if you don't feel particular reprehensible, then perhaps you should reconsider exactly what that word means when you hear it in other contexts. Many of the best...

    It hasn't stopped me from enjoying the game, but I've never really forgotten that it's there either. It's like an itch that you just can't scratch, or something almost glimpsed out of the corner of...

    No I think it's the right word, I just disagree with you. The actual gameplay is clean, sure, but there's all this other stuff built around it -- the gun skins, item boxes, auction houses, some sort...

    I started playing CS in 1.0 and my personal high point was probably around 2003-2004 with cs_bloodstrike and the Warcraft 3 RPG mod. 14/16-player servers were the sweet spot, none of this 32-player...

    I haven't used it in a while, but Google Earth might offer a more impressive experience than Google Maps.

    Foreign Policy magazine has an interesting article on the history of seccession/accession referendums. Apparently Avignon was the first with 2/3rds of the population voting to defect from Rome to the...

    Well, good luck with that. You're right, the only thing separating Crimea from your hypothetical is power (Russia has too much of it) and interests (Russia cares a lot more about the outcome than...

    Exit polling in Crimea ~93% in favour of joining Russia. Democracy in action.

    "Gaming's biggest joke organisation" should be a pretty tough bar to clear. Surely there's a community out there dedicated to defending the rights of white teenage males to act as assholes in the...

    Halving power consumption in a single generation is pretty much a tacit admission that efficiency was absolutely nowhere on their priority list before this. And why would it be, when increasing...

    Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy

    I haven't seen a film this much in love with its time and place since Deep Blue Sea. TTSS drips with the murky atmosphere of Cold War espionage in 1970s London. Yes,...
