Mars Express Captures Phobos and Deimos

dvs01 Someone spot E1M1 (84 comments)

I'm looking at those craters and am trying to figure out where the Phobos bases are. Perhaps it's at the wrong angle. Did the UAC cover it up?

Konami Cuts and Runs From Iraq War Game

dvs01 Ridiculous (321 comments)

Yes, I think that this game would be VERY fun. Why hide the damn fact? Yes, I think it would be VERY fun to act as a terrorist and kill U.S. forces, while afterward, it would be VERY fun to play on the U.S. side and kill the terrorists. Why fun? Why should I say its fun to play a video game character that kills Americans? Why the hell not? The strategy and tactics involved in both sides would be interesting, no matter what it's actually meant to depict. In fact, simulating a defeat of the Marines would be quite fun to do, since they obviously won and outgunned their enemies.

Aside from that, killing anything and everything is fun in video games, and that's just how it is. I'll shoot a baby with a rocket launcher, and then get off the PC and go about my peaceful day in real life. It's a fucking game. Hence the name.

Anyone heard of Counterstrike? That game is notorious for being VERY fun, despite the fact that one of the teams has to play the terrorists. Whoever is sensitive to this needs to not play, and stop trying to ruin the time of those who want to play.

This is more ridiculous than the people who protested against Resident Evil 5, a game set in Africa, where (surprise!) a majority of the zombies are black.

Microsoft Sees Linux As Bigger Competitor Than Apple

dvs01 Re:Of course! (596 comments)

Why not just give in and sell out? Sell Linux to Microsoft for a billion dollars. Then, fork it and use the money to continue development. If they want to pay for something that's free, they can go ahead :)
