Given one free trip to the past in a time machine, I would..
From the Bible itself: Luke:16:30-31 "'No, father Abraham,' he said, 'but if someone from the dead goes to them, they will repent.' He said to him, 'If they do not listen to Moses and the Prophets, they will not be convinced even if someone rises from the dead.' "
People believe what they want to believe. Just because you said you went back and saw Jesus raised or not raised from the dead...would it really convince anyone at all?
OnLive CEO On Post-Launch Status, Game Licenses
Have you actually used the service? I tried it out (I'm a founding member whoop-dee-doo). And it's exactly the opposite of what you state about World-of-Goo. I found UT3 perfectly playable, with very little noticeable lag. In fact on my second Team death match, I ranked at the top of the list for kills. It's about the same sort of lag I'd expect from using the average bluetooth mouse.
World of Goo (and other 2d games) on the other hand was unplayable, the mouse lags so much that it's almost unplayable. So yeah...I'd say your general statement was false. Yes, Latency is an issue, and yes, the video quality is bad. But the heavy 3d games run waaaay better than the lighter 2d games.
Blender 2.49 Scripting
There's been talks about that, but one of the big issues is that the language then becomes non-standardized. So if you give me a script, I'll have to install whatever language binding you used, plus any libraries and modules for that language as well. That doesn't sound fun.

Are Consoles Holding Back PC Gaming?
Well the real reason Titan Quest failed, was it had some major flaws IMO. Inventory management was worthless, the system requirements (at the time) were rather steep, and every review of it I saw gave it about 7.5 out of 10. So yeah, it sounds like the developers were looking for excuses.

Revisiting the "Holy Trinity" of MMORPG Classes
One of my favorite classes is the Mesmer from Guild Wars... practically useless on their own, they have an awesome array of spells for invalidating the other side's strengths. For instance, their skills can cause a target to take damage whenever it attacks. They can move debuffs from friendlies and place them on enemies. And one of my favorite spells removes a hex from a target and allows you to re-cast that hex onto any other opponent.
This is what we need more of in RPGs...highly specialized classes that open up new tactics in combat.

"Live Expansion" Announced for Warhammer Online
I have to agree with the parent. I got this game about two weeks ago. So far, my wife and I have hit lvl16 (out of 40 lvls) and we've only been playing for a hour a day. Very casual oriented. I have a level 64 pally in WoW, and the leveling rate is so insanely slow we just gave up.
You can't do PvP or even run raids in WoW until you hit 80 these days since getting 25 people in the lvl 64 range is next to impossible. In War, the RvR battles are everywhere, and you can actually help out as a lvl 16.
I will be playing war for a long time....
Trick or Treatment
I think it's important not to throw the baby out with the bath water. I come from a vegan family (health reasons) and I have to say, chiropractors, and alternative medicine does work. Sure some of it is just a crock, but not all of it.
Two examples: my mother was told by the doctors that her thyroid deficiency was untreatable and that she would need supplements for the rest of her life. A local alternative medicine doctor claimed otherwise, he explained that back in the 60's chickens were fed with chemicals that were not safe for humans. Humans ate these chickens and that was what had caused her thyroid to start malfunctioning. He treated her, and she hasn't needed the supplements for several years now.
More recently, I have had serious eye/head pain. The eye doctors didn't know what it was. Out of a whim I visited a chiropractor, and a day later I was totally fine. And that was after living off of pain killers for an entire week.
So yes, this stuff works. Nothing is a cure all, and there's just as much snake oil as there ever was. But I have been cured more times by alternative medicine than I ever have been by doctors.
SOE Allows Purchase of In-Game Items In Everquest I, II
I had a character at 34 before starting back at 1 with my wife via recruit-a-friend. It really doesn't change allot of the gameplay. You don't have to quest as much...that's about it. Infact you level so much that most of the time you're flat broke just from the cost of skills/armor.
But it all goes away at lvl 60, so you still have 20 levels at the normal pace to go.
