Could we just skip the pleasantries and get right to the games?
One of my clearest memories of gaming in my childhood was playing Twisted Metal in Target because my mom wouldn’t buy it for me. I must have played twenty hours at that kiosk. I’m glad to see David is back into car combat! Exciting!!!
You’re right! It’s been a while since my PHIL 210 class LOL. I even wrote a research paper on this and still got it wrong.
Well, Bentham came up with the prison diagram, but Foucault was the one who originally came up with Panopticism.
Panopticon refers to a philosophy from Michel Foucault. He came up with the idea that if people think they are being watched they will behave differently than people who do not. Like a guard tower in a prison yard with no guards is more effective than no tower at all.
That probably explains the totalitarian government thing.
That has happened several times though. After an expansion the subscriber base always drops significantly. I believe that there will always be a somewhat large contingent of people who play WoW for a long, long time.
I have a suggestion that I’m sure you’ve considered. I’d just like to show my support of the idea.
It would be nice to see the writer of the features, reviews, and news reports on the homepage along with the other stats. I know I have my favorites and I’d be more likely to read those articles if I knew who wrote them.
Just a thought.
Great article :)
DTOID show should have bought this, spray painted it silver, and stuck it on their wall.
BRING IT TO PC!!!
I wonder how many of these people found it as a sweet release from the evil empire. I hope they all ended up in better places.
Ohhhhhhhh make it so!
Every time I see his name I think of Jean Baptiste. Thanks Russ.
I’m not gonna hold my breath on Mirror’s Edge (though it would be nice). I’ll be super stoked to see a new Mass Effect game. This E3 is gonna be insaaaaaaaaane.
Anyone else think of Battlestar Gallactica when Hendrix rolled in with All Along the Watchtower?
Star Wars + DICE = Battlefront III
It will certainly be interesting. I look forward to it. Thanks for your reply.
Great point about the fact that the Wii looks to fit into today’s connected infrastructure whereas the PS4 looks to embrace it. Nicely done Mr. Crecente.
Based on your information and sources, would you say that Durango wishes to compete in a slightly (or not so slightly) different market than the PS4? What I mean is, are the rumors true about MS being more concerned about the casual gamers and consumers of media whereas Sony wishes to develop a stronger relationship with enthusiasts and "core"gamers? I would find it very interesting to see how the market share shifts and develops if these rumors are not just rumors.
I realize that much of this would be speculation but I’d still like to hear your thoughts about the whispers and such.
Also, the inevitable PC version will undoubtedly fix these graphical issues (or the modders will LOL)
I liked the idea to put Russ in a moving crowd while talking about the game. It’s symbolic and looks really cool as well :)
Griffin a.k.a. Charlie Sheen = Winning
Sexism in the industry apparently = AC4.
While all of the fourteen y/o boys say YAYYY BOOOBIESSS IN VIDEO GAMEZZZZZ!!!!
Do you think the trailers might have been captured on a PS4 or Durango devkit? Or possibly a high end PC?
Rockstar are pretty famous for their bullshots. 64x AA, post processing, etc.
