  1. Up your's

  2. Okay, but "completely uninspiring" and "crap" are a LOT different from what you were saying about the mods in the straight-5s post. If it's riddled with typos, blatant grammatical errors, and filled with very poor writing, that's one thing - but I've played about 20 mods so far at random, and I haven't seen more than one or two mods with any of those things. (And honestly, that surprised me, given the usual level of writing on the vault - I've played exactly one normal module that had very good writing and only a few others with passable writing). I've played some that started out slow and got
  3. I think that playing through enough mods per day that it becomes a chore to you is going to mess things up as well, though. Bioware says they'll go through them all, but they're getting paid for it and you're not. "Writers I'd definitely want to see at Bioware" isn't too bad a criteria, but if you want to be consistent, you really should play the mods for longer than 30 seconds - that's not fair at all. Yes, Bioware said that it's important for the first character/dialogue to be engaging, but they didn't say that that should determine everything - I played several mods that didn't have brillia
  4. I'd like to mention here that I hope everyone who votes for writing contest mods does so by followingthe contest rules fairly closely. So far, I've seen a LOT of high scores given out due to scripting for mods with mediocre or okay writing, and several lower scores given by players who were sad about the mods being "too short," and that is not fair to anyone in the contest. Knocking off points for typos & scripting errors that leave you unable to finish the mod or certain quests is one thing, but judging a contest entry as if it were the same as any other mod is another, significantly more
  5. Excellent. Now I can finally ask WHY WON'T YOU RETURN MY PHONE CALLS, OBSIDIAN? Oh. Filtered chat. Crap.
  6. Oh, my god. That is far too tasteful for me to find fault with.
  7. I think people are getting hurt, but that is a quite more complex topic than this and would just branch out into insanity if pursued here. I have a problem with sex being marketed to sell most anything, but I think it's definitely effective in certain cases where it's not in computer games because they're totally different products, and also often because those products tend to be cheaper and/or necessary in a way that computer games are not. For simpler products like deodorant, clothing, recordable DVDs, whatever, brand recognition matters a lot more than the quality of the actual pr
  8. So how many people in this thread have bought games solely or largely because of hot siliconed bikini chicks (Playboy Mansion & Leisure Suit Larry excepted)? How many have even bought games they otherwise hadn't heard of because of hot siliconed bikini chicks? I buy that "sex sells" sometimes, though I'm repulsed by the idea that that makes it okay, given that only one narrow, vicious idea of sex is generally used in the mass media. I don't buy that "sex sells" for computer games the same way it does for foul-smelling deodorant. Computer games are a larger investment of time and money
  9. They aren't guidelines, they are rules, and you get a hefty fine for not following them. I think there are better ways to change the whole booth babe standard. This is more of a threat to behave, perhaps they should try and spin the fact that a more child friendly and less sexist E3 will help greatly with PR. They need to open up the Boys Club of video games, but attacking the door with an axe is not the smoothest way to do so. <{POST_SNAPBACK}> It's a rule, yes, but it's still a private event, so it's not censorship. "Child friendliness" is also irrelevant since you hav
  10. New guidelines for a private event = censorship?
  11. I'm suspicious of the reasoning behind the new rule, but somehow I can't think that anything but good will come of it. Except the chorus of whines from kidlets who haven't figured out yet how to use the internet to find porn any time they want it - but it's such sweet music! Mmmm.
  12. And I posted before you edited, and it certainly is a good point. I just think it's amusing that you picked one of the few Hollywood actresses who happened to secretly transform into a semi-Olympian when you weren't looking.

  14. I just read an entire article in Reader's Digest about Geena Davis today, and an entire section was specifically about what great shape she was in, largely focusing on how she made it to the Olympic archery semifinals. Relevance. Look, I don't read Reader's Digest, it was just there. I'm going now.
