    His girlfriend is moving in with him, and thus no more gaming. She told him to "grow up," is forcing him to sell all his video games if he wants to keep making babies, and is enrolling him in pottery and gardening classes.

    The hellspawn toddler is actually part of Mercy's plan to hook up with Holi, see he's going to be all like "oh we should get the kids together for a playdate" and then after a couple of glasses of wine...

    I'm kinda wondering the same thing at this point. This page has been really goddamn weird re: Me.


    EDIT: Why am I suddenly gay? Why are there (apparently) tongues in my asshole at all times? And what's this about S&M? And I'm not an alcoholic. I'm just a lush. I love being drunk. I can go without it, I just consciously choose not to.

    It's a good thing you're in town tomorrow. I spent most of my day closer to Cleveland.

    Also Mercy is with a single mother? Shoplifting?

    Yeah, if anyone's gay in this thread (besides me) it's definitely Gotro and Amish. Not that there's anything wrong with being gay. I wish I were gay. I'd have more money, probably, and less baby shit around the house at this point.

    I miss sizequeen is what I'm saying. Also, we all need to grow the fuck up.

    Says something like "sponsored by he makers of Call of Duty" at the end of the original FPS russia video, but seriously, Woody knows nada about guns based on that. The second rifle in the video he talks through just looks like a bling'd up M4. Magpul AFG, some kind of Bi-Pod, empty 5.56 mag-well. I'm sure some of the gun-afficionado's here could i.d. it more.

    It's Woody. Of course he wants video hits.

    I can see a Cypher style of killstreak in BLOPS2. We don't even know the era, but it's probably going to be set around the MW series of events.

    They both look like ARs. And that doesn't really matter because all ARs in Call of Duty fall into two categories post-BLOPS; usable and trash. And they'll never be true to their real life counterparts, so speculating on weapon skins is silly to begin with.

    Maybe we'll go into Afghanistan and it will be like Rambo III.

    Also I made a highlight vid of me being awesome set to music again

    Your best bet is probably a used copy. The prices I'm seeing for them on the Amazon marketplace are around 38 dollars (with shipping).

    If you can read the article linked to,
    Bowling seems to be structuring his studio to be the complete antithesis of the Activision development model.

    as a quote:
    “Robotoki [the studio name] is focused on being a developer development studio that just happens to make games,” he said. “We are focused on our team first and everything else second, because I believe as an industry; we have a lot to learn on how to treat talent. While we continue to out stride film and music entertainment in other areas, we are falling severely behind in how to properly inspire and support our creative talent.

    “As a developer, our focus is on creating a universe first, experiences second, and game mechanics last, “ Bowling said. “With focus being on universe, we aim to create experiences that transcend platforms and genres and allow our players to connect to our world, their characters, and gameplay via any medium (console, PC, or mobile).

    Well, I know who I won't be buying from. From the way he stated all of that, I think I know where the marijuana tags from MW2 came from.

    Clearly the one thing Bowling quit Infinity ward for, is that he couldn't get enough of that game mechanics to think about.

    The mechanics flow a lot easier from the universe than the other way around.

    As an almost graduated game design major, I can say that game mechanics > universe/experience is typically the best way to go. But it is possible to create a game out of a theme first but it's best to use this on a single-player experience. Typically it doesn't fare as well in a competitive experience.

    That's true, though not to say one precedes the other;
    more like continuously modifying one to fit the other is always a part of the iterative process.

    Counterstrike went pretty much only for game mechanics and we see how well that worked out.

    You can pump out creative, pretty shit all day long. But in the end, it's still shit.
