Fable 3 preview: It's the economy, stupid (Joystiq)

Oct 15th 2010 9:45AM Why are games being made to so closely mirror real life? Don't we play games to escape real life for awhile? So, if you marry a player in co-op, your gold is combined? So, if I'm playing the game by myself, I have to worry about how much money I spend or vice versa? This just seems like a needless aspect for me. I don't really want to think about that stuff. I already have to do that in real life and it's not fun.

And...managing properties? Even if you have some butler to assist you, how is that any fun at all?

DLS Faceoff: Grooveshark is a solid music streaming and recommendation app for Android (Download Squad)

Oct 12th 2010 3:39PM I'm not really sure how I feel about Grooveshark. I'm not quite sure how it works, but it seems to be a user-based music system where users upload songs. I'm not sure how legal that is. While searching, I came across instances of the same song just labeled improperly. Were these added by Grooveshark, I'm not quite sure how that would have happened. It's like during the old Kazaa days when you'd look up, say "It's The End of the World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine)" and someone who didn't know the name of the song called it "End of the World".

New copies of WWE Smackdown vs. Raw 2011 include free online pass, DLC (Joystiq)

Aug 19th 2010 11:45AM @SSmaster Me too, but I hope it improves upon last year without taking things away that I like. They seem to always remove a feature I love with each iteration. For example, I loved the Create-a-belt feature and they took it away with no explanation. I also liked having thousands of patterns to choose from for my wrestler's attire and those were dumbed down to maybe 10.

Aug 19th 2010 11:43AM @Noise Tank Yeah, the sad thing is there are probably guys on the roster for the game who are let go already like Shelton Benjamin and Charlie Haas. I do understand once the rosters are finalized, they can't change them, though.

Google Buzz faces privacy lawsuit (Download Squad)

Feb 18th 2010 8:29AM Ugh...only in America can you sue a company for changing how you use a FREE service...I really wish the judge would laugh this woman out of the courtroom...

I understand the privacy concerns, but they have been pretty much fixed and Google has publicly apologized for the screw-up. What else can they possibly be expected to do?

Digsby's at it again - this time they want you to tweet for dollars (Download Squad)

Dec 16th 2009 8:58AM Okay, bye! You obviously didn't read what the issue is.

Google unveils new homepage: did you even notice? (Download Squad)

Dec 3rd 2009 9:14AM I can't say that I understand the point. As soon as you move your mouse everything comes up anyway, so why make it fade in? Just to make it look cool? I'm not sure if it fades back out again after awhile, but by that time, you've probably already typed in your search and hit Enter. It just seems a little silly to me.

WWE Smackdown vs. Raw 2010 dated, detailed (Joystiq)

Aug 25th 2009 1:13PM You know...I actually hated GM Mode. I personally don't like those types of games. Some people do, but not everyone does. Keep in mind that just because you like a feature doesn't mean EVERYONE does too. If everyone did, it wouldn't have been removed (probably. This is THQ we're talking about). I am VERY looking forward to seeing this Design a Story-mode. I might not have to imagine anymore as to why the two guys are wrestling in the ring during Exhibition matches. On the other hand, it may end up less than how they describe it as is what usually happens when SvR introduces a new feature in the game.

Instant Eyedropper: Find the color code for anything on your computer (Download Squad)

Feb 29th 2008 1:18PM Awesome find! There have been many a times when creating website profiles and such things where I have wanted to make the colors match something else and now this will definitely make things easier!
