  1. Don't know if you're from Italy, or if that's just your flag. In America video games never sell out, its quite rare. New systems do on release, but an individual game almost never. Certainly not a PC game either, one that's just a rerelease / port.


    Its why I've always found the concept of pre-ordering quite funny, its obviously for sales reports and just assuring people buy it from a certain location, but the "secure your copy" bit is nonsense. Just going to walk into a Best Buy or whatever on the 17th and buy an Xbox copy, like I've done with every other game.


    I am interested in the Xbox One and PS4 situation. I don't even think they can get the regular 360 / PS3 games to work on those, I know the old systems used emulation, but surely its far more complicated and can't just be done on a very small single game level? (Though, the original Xbox 360 could played Halo and Halo 2 even without any backwards compatibility update, etc....).


    I suppose it would be wise of Rockstar to rerelease the game with any extra content they later release in a single package for the new consoles. There seems to always be a dry spell, even a year into a system's life. A release around next holiday would allow them to cash in on many double-dippers.

  2. You do realize graphic designers and the like are the ones who create such artwork, correct? Packaging and all promotional works in general are handled by their art team, who are illustrators, graphic designers, etc.


    You may not be familiar with what a "graphic designer" actually is, which is understandable (in no way meant to come off condcending), but it isn't someone who actually designs the graphics of a video game or anything like that. Just artwork direction, things such as font choice, overall style, etc. etc. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Graphic_design

  3. I'm assuming they'll have a mix of everything. I would like to maybe see a modern, "indie" rock radio station with the likes of Black Keys, Arctic Monkeys, Kigns of Leon, Strokes, etc.

    I'm sure they'll have a '70s rock station, as most regular cities do. For something of that type, I think I'd pick Steppenwolf, The Guess Who, Free, Bad Company, KISS ('70s only, really). Those groups just have that screaming '70s masculinity about them, don't they lol. Doesn't get any more "tough" than those, super-macho groups. Of that time period altogether my favorites would probably be Beatles (obviously, probably not going to happen), Jimi Hendrix Experience, Velvet Underground, Deep Purple, etc.

  4. Eminem, first rapper I became interested in. 90's and 2000's.

    Eminem is originally from Detroit, about 15-20 minutes from my house. A lot of people around here know him or have met him. My French teacher used to work at a pizza place with him.

    My favorite decade would be the 2000s. Most of my favorite bands either came out or got popular during these past 10 years (Arctic Monkeys, MGMT, Muse, etc.).

  5. Connor, throughout the topic you've constantly been bashing Christianity, honestly this type of stuff shouldn't be allowed. Personally I really don't care if you're atheist, but when you go about calling the God Christians believe in a "cunt" and someone who absolutely cannot exist, people begin to get angry.

    You mentioned how someone tried to convert you to Christianity and you told them off, well what are you trying to accomplish here by making fun of Christians' beliefs and by constantly going on about how there is no way that their God exists? It seems to me like you're trying to convert those people to atheism yourself. Trying to get them to KNOW THE TRUTH, MAN!

    And Gerard, your first paragraph is exactly what I mean.

    This topic is meant to be a discussion on religion, not a place for you to make fun of others' beliefs. I'm really not pissed, my post was in general speaking about in real life, but I'm sure many people here are discouraged and don't want to come in here to discuss religion when there are guys like you in here calling their God a "cunt."

  6. First, that was a very weakened Manchester United squad, without a doubt. They didn't start with Berbatov, Valencia, Ferdinand (right?), Vidic, or even Tosic (who, although he may not start, he could definitely come off the bench and bring some extra creativity and boost the attack). Nothing to worry about IMO. And besides, we all know Manchester United already have boughten their next midfield star, he goes by the name of Adem Ljajic! Without a doubt, the number one 17-year-old in the world. I wouldn't be surprised to see him feature in the Premier League when he comes in Jan., but I think his real Premier League career will start next season. Who knows though. :)!

    As for Europa League, there were four teams in that from Serbia. Two got knocked out, and there are two left. My team, FK Partizan, tied their first leg 1-1 but were clearly the better team, they should do much better on the next leg as I predict the other guys will be playing some bunker-down football. I think with Adem Ljajic's dribbling, he'll get through once and it'll be enough to set up a goal. :)! The other team, Crvena Zvezda Beograd, (Red Star Belgrade), former Champion's League champs, lost 0-3, but they always tend to play x10 better at home so I'm not saying their out yet.
