Apple To Launch Largest Stock Repurchasing Plan In History

atheistmonk Re:Dumbest idea, ever (282 comments)

I have small hands and my Galaxy S2 is very easy to use one handed. I must be doing something wrong to be able to use the phone that is the wrong width for the human hand so easily.

Electronics Arts CEO Ousted In Wake of SimCity Launch Disaster

Too bad this didn't happen with Blizzard after Diablo 3 as well. Fuck this always-online NWO bullshit.

Valve Officially Launches Steam For Linux

atheistmonk Re:Goodbye Windows (313 comments)

Yep, I've successfully run Skyrim and New Vegas, but NV is a bit slow and Skyrim is fine at first but quickly turns into a slideshow, as compared to my Win 7 partition where it's flawless :/ Mind you, I did it out of the box (it's amazing it worked just like that) so it could simply need some extra config. I'll give PlayOnLinux a shot.

Valve Officially Launches Steam For Linux

atheistmonk Re:Goodbye Windows (313 comments)

Definitely agreed. The biggest thing about Steam going to Linux is the exposure for the platform and the interest it generates. This may help to spur on WINE development even more. When I can play Skyrim, New Vegas and Rocksmith flawlessly in WINE I'm not looking back.

Microsoft Puts the Kibosh On Kinect Sex Game Plans

atheistmonk Re:Obligatory (419 comments)

I remember way back when I bought PC Gamer there was a letter to the mag complaining about FEAR's frequent swearing. They agreed with him too. I guess sex and swearing is far more deplorable than the cannibalism, dismemberment and showers of blood in that game..

Mega Man Designer Explains Japan's Waning Video Game Influence

atheistmonk It isn't the superficial stuff (315 comments)

It isn't about getting ready of the whacky.. It's about getting rid of the stale. Japanese themes don't worry us at all. That's all superficial and as he said the superficial changes (blue eyed, blonde haired characters, Western themes) did bugger all. When it comes to RPGs (as an example genre), Western gamers lap up the open world games such as Morrowind and Oblivion. The Japanese probably love these games as well, but the developers are stuck in the rut of crafting Street Fighter, Tekken and DOA games with the same formula over and over again. Final Fantasy is still basically the same formula as well, with a bit of experimentation to do with class changing now and then. I'm not saying that there aren't plenty of Western developers aren't stuck in the same rut and there are certainly fun, novel games that come out of Japan (like Katamari). Just my $0.05

Mass Effect To Invade the Big Screen

atheistmonk Re:Can it wait? (142 comments)

Seriously, though. Reading TFA (I know I know) it is somewhat comforting to know that Bioware dudes are going to be involved. I'd prefer to know if their writers were in on it, though. Hell, Mass Effect blew my mind with its cinematic integrity. Will it get the Hollywood treatment and everything we know and love about it is raped and murdered before our eyes? Yeah, probably. But who knows, 300 and Watchmen were pretty faithful adaptations and maybe we won't have Johnny Fucking Depp or Robert Downey Jr playing Commander Shepard.

Sneak Preview For Coming KDE SC 4.5

atheistmonk Re:KDE4 ruined it for me. (249 comments)

I know exactly what you mean when it comes to Amarok. The layout in particular annoyed me. I'd follow instructions to give a similar appearance in Amarok 2, but even with it looking like 1.4, it didn't have the same functionality (clicking a column title to sort, for example). I've been using MPD for awhile now, but recently I stumbled on Clementine which is a fork of Amarok 1.4. It's still very young, but is usable and looking good so far.

Japanese Spacecraft Bringing Back Space Rock

atheistmonk Woomera is the perfect place. (116 comments)

Any illegal aliens that come along with the spacerocks will be placed in Woomera Detention Centre for at least six months and then blasted back into outer space while the whales cry for them.
