    I'm thinking of registering as a GOP delegate for Virginia's 10th congressional district. I'm gonna show up and be like "I love Ron Paul, yo." And all the nerds are going to vote for me, even though Virginia is a bound state and I'll have to vote for Romney in the first round no matter what.

    And after I get elected, I'll say "haha, just kidding, I'm sticking with Romney, douche nozzles. Let's go to war with Iran, and raise taxes to pay for the tumescent military we'll need for the occupation."

    That whole hologram thing to me is super weird.

    It seems... disrespectful. I'm surprised people okayed it.

    also I think the newer Kairosoft games have quite a bit of content for $5. I played through Dungeon Villiage twice and will most likely do so at least once more (15 hours maybe?).

    Even if you only play through the game once it's still about the same playtime as a current gen console FPS. And less insipid.

    Couldn't let a chance to use such a great word go to waste.

    Pac's mom loved it.

    I mean, as long as everyone involved was cool with it, no harm no foul.

    Just deeply weird to me.

    Seriously J not only are you a monumentally umpleasant person when you start uttering the nonsense that passes for philosophy in your mind (shame on whatever institution you graduated in, and shame on your tutors for creating such a monster), but your sense of humor, such as it is, is awful.

    Hologram Tupac is technically impressive, but that really does seem like it straddles the bounds of appropriateness.

    I think I just find it kind of troubling that corporations can take someone's image and use it pretty much however they please after they're dead.

    Do we know what happened to the profits? Or who green lit the idea? Not like it matters, still weird, but details may result in it being less odd.

    Dead artists work living beyond them is nothing new.

    The more I think about it the more I think I am okay with it in theory, but I'm not sure if I want to waste time/money to watch a hologram bounce around the stage.

    Ok this prototype 2 commercial is tickling my hype bone.

    The first one moved between "stupid easy" and "irritating without being particularly challenging"

    I'm more excited about Dragon's Dogma, which looks like Shadow of the Colossus plus Dark Souls plus Skyrim/Kingdoms of Amalur

    Richard Baxton piloted his Recon Rover into a fungal vortex and held off four waves of mind worms, saving an entire colony. We immediately purchased his identity manifests and repackaged him into the Recon Rover Rick character with a multi-tiered media campaign: televids, touchbooks, holos, psi-tours-- the works. People need heroes. They don't need to know how he died clawing his eyes out, screaming for mercy. The real story would just hurt sales, and dampen the spirits of our customers.

    Hurt is a song I hold dear to my heart, especially Johnny Cash's version, and it's being used to no effect in the commercial

    I don't have any opinion on the game proper.

    it cost like $100,000 - $400,000. Coachella told Dre he could do whatever for his sets. I doubt they turned a specific profit on the hologram.

    NOPE.
