Sterrance Wow (419 comments)

I never thought I'd see an article that would refer to the iPhone as "cheap."

Average Gamer Is 35, Fat and Bummed

Sterrance Forgot to mention.... (439 comments)

that the survey wasn't national. They "analyzed survey data from 552 adults in the Seattle-Tacoma area. The subjects ranged in age from 19 to 90, according to the study, published in the October issue of the American Journal of Preventive Medicine." No offense to my fellow Americans in Seattle, but its not the happiest place with 226 days of cloudyness. The data might be a bit unbalanced.

While My Guitar Gently Beeps

Sterrance Re:Screw Rock Band: The Beatles (140 comments)

Fact 1: How is that any different from Guitar Hero which never has DLC compatibility beyond playing Metallica music in GH4 and GH:M. Fact 2: I agree that is lame for Apple to inforce, but at the end of the day that's what the contract stated. Fact 3: RIP: Drum Fill solo mechanic, I never loved you though. It always sounded off when doing the solos in Rock Band. I actually prefer Beatles not having this. Also Ringo Starr never liked doing drum solos so it's true to the band as well. Anyway that's business. You make it sound like they are sacrificing virgins for this game.

Smash Bros. Creators Behind New TMNT Game

Sterrance Re:Unfortunately that does not mean quality (29 comments)

Well many people in their 20s to early 30s have great memories playing the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Arcade games. So the franchise definitely has an audience in younger kids and the MTV Generation.

The Sounds of Failing Hard Drives

Sterrance In all my years. (205 comments)

From my Macintosh LC to my Macbook Pro (even my PCs) I've never had a single hard drive fail me. Am I just lucky or is the occurrence of hard drive failure rare?
