PS3 Counter-Strike To Support Keyboard and Mouse

enderjsv Re:Awesome. (168 comments)

Ever watch Halo 3 in MLG? Some people are wicked good snipers even with a controller. The difference is it takes a lot of practice. Unlike with a mouse, where everyone is pretty much an expert sniper after playing for two weeks. Personally, I like that the skill cap is so high with a controller. But to each their own, I suppose.

PS3 Counter-Strike To Support Keyboard and Mouse

enderjsv Re:Awesome. (168 comments)

I really don't understand this argument. I mean, I can see how you prefer M+K, but it's not really that hard to play with a controller, once you get used to it. I know like a dozen people who all had that M+K only mentality and used to complain so much about controllers. I ask them now and they still say they prefer M+K, but don't mind playing with a controller at all so long as everyone else is. It's really not that hard to get used to. Try it out. You're missing out on some pretty good games.

PS3 Counter-Strike To Support Keyboard and Mouse

enderjsv Re:Awesome. (168 comments)

I agree with you. I always remember some guy saying he enjoyed a certain pc game but got tired of it when everyone got good enough to bunny hop through a corridor with a sniper rifle pulling off headshot after headshot. I feel like the ease of aiming with a mouse is almost detrimental to FPS games and makes them campy sniper fests. The difficulty in aiming with a controller broadens the width skill and makes the game less about point-and-click and more about movement and strategy.

I like to compare it to racing. Ask any driver if he would prefer to race with an automatic or a manual gear shift, and I bet most of them would say manual. It's just more fun that way, even if automatic is easier.

LulzSec Document Dump Shows Cops' Fear of iPhones

enderjsv Re:no expectation of privacy (391 comments)

Well, what I actually meant was, do they have to give up there privacy rights just because they're at work? If an office worker was working for the government, would it be okay for their boss to videotape them secretly just because they are a government employee. Granted, this isn't quite the same as an officer on duty handing out tickets, but my question is more about how being a "public servant" limits their expectation of privacy? Should it?

Again, just playing devil's advocate.

LulzSec Document Dump Shows Cops' Fear of iPhones

enderjsv Re:no expectation of privacy (391 comments)

Technically, I agree with you. But just to play the devil's advocate, should a government employee be expected to give up all rights to individual privacy just because they work for the government? Would you say the same of an office worker who found out they were being secretly recorded by their boss?

What LulzSec Logins Reveal About Bookworms, and Passwords

enderjsv Re:Are you sure? (136 comments)

I thought about doing a mix. Like, I have a series of numbers, symbols and letters that I've memorized. It's a very secure password, and I like using it because I can remember it.

But of course, using the same password on every site isn't good practice, so I've made various little changes to the series. Only problem is, it gets hard to remember what series fits what site. So I thought of using the same series for every site, and then simply attaching the first and last alphanumeric character of the website address to the password. That way I'll have a secure password on every site that is easy to remember wherever I use it.

So, when this starts happening in the US, I'm guessing Yucca mountain will sound a lot more appealing to all those naysayers. Just a guess, though.

Average Gamer Is 37 Years Old

enderjsv Re:Middle age and I hate games (295 comments)

I hate this argument. There's plenty of mature games out there. Portal 2, Mass Effect, Bioshock. These are just three games off the top of my head that are definitely at a level of maturity with complex themes and sophisticated story-lines. Your post reeks of pseudo-elitism.

How To Succeed In IT Without Really Trying

enderjsv Re:contractor / consultant (283 comments)

That's not fair. There are contractors who care. I've seen one. In fact, let me check something... um... yup, I dvr'd that episode of Ripley's Believe it or not. I'll see if I can find a clip of it on you tube and post it for ya.

Mass Effect 3, Battlefield 3 Launch Dates Announced

enderjsv Re:Great, there goes my weekend. (37 comments)

I had the unfortunate experience of having to play 2 without my save file. It really irked me to find out a certain character I saved in the first game was dead in the second one because of this. I don't see why they don't give you the option of setting up the things you did in the first game for those players who don't have their save file. Is it really a big deal if someone lies and setups their data inaccurately?

MIT Develops Fast Charging Liquid Flow Batteries

enderjsv could (135 comments)

I hate the word "could." It's so inconclusive. I always think of the Geico commercial. "15 minutes could save you 15 percent or more on your car insurance." Yeah, and if I buy a lottery ticket, I could win millions of dollars. I probably won't, but I could.

I'm probably just being too cynical. This is an interesting development, and I should be more supportive. But I can't get excited when there's so much "could" in an article. Just not in my nature.

Crytek Loses Faith in PC Exclusitivity

enderjsv enderjsv writes  |  more than 6 years ago

enderjsv (1128541) writes "According to an article on Joystiq, the developer of the PC exclusive game Crysis has stated that they will no longer be making PC exclusive games, citing both poor sales and piracy as reasons. Here is a quote from the article:

-The comments were made as part of an interview with Croatian magazine PC Play, during which Yerli stated that 'I believe that's the core problem of PC gaming, piracy ... It was a big lesson for us and I believe we won't have PC exclusives as we did with Crysis in future.' He added that while the company will continue to create games for the PC, these titles will not be released solely for that platform.-

The article goes on to wonder if this news gives any more credibility to the oft-rumored PS3 and Xbox 360 ports. One thing is for sure, this isn't good news for PC gamers."
