The Farcry spinoff does look like stupid fun. The trailer shows the bow-and-arrow with a "cyberpunk" re-skin, so that's an automatic thumbs up in my book. And how can you go wrong with cyborg tigers?

I wonder if the game has an in-universe explanation -- maybe Dr. Earnhardt took too many mushrooms and we're playing through his hallucination. Or during his bender (before the game-guys took him off the to studio to voice his role) he pounded out a script on an old typewriter and mailed it to a film studio in Bangkok.

"I'm a lizard, please remove this lizard from my genitals". Someone sniggered. I distinctly heard someone snigger. And it wasn't just me.

Great ep all round :D

Edit: I just read the front page post. It was Kathleen :D

At 1:51, the text at the bottom of the screen says, "CHANNEL 4: NOT JUST FOR YOUR VCR."
Damn, you went old school with that one.

That's the real problem with EA... They are so evil as a company, but their games are so good.
Kind of a Catch-22 there I'm afraid.

PA Report did an article about EA last week.

Here's the article

This part made me chuckle:

Can you remember the last EA title that you truly loved? Can you remember the last interview you read about that game where a developer was allowed to explain their passion for the game? Bonus points will be awarded if it wasn't a Bioware-developed game.

...Starflight.


Oh, wait; we're not talking "Electronic Arts"; plucky, respectable alternative to the then-dominant 'big-business' publishers that treated the developers that came to them with prospective products like shit...

*looks at EA*

...I think it *might* have been The Sims (yes, the original) - I do remember reading a preview article in PC Gamer that had...somebody-Woosolenko(sp?) extolling the unique nature of the game - the person's last name stuck in my head more than anything else about the article, tho. :)

And c'mon - it was The Sims - ain't no party like a pool party where you take out the ladder after everyone's gone swimmin'! :twisted:
