I don't think anyone in their right mind would endorse war. And even though I detest the idea of armed conflict, I also spend a lot of time studying the various wars that have occurred between nations in history. Suffice to say, some wars are more interesting than others. I find the Spanish Civil War in the '30s to be of particular interest.
 
Really though just because war is bad doesn't mean you should ignore the fact that wars happen. They happen a lot. And people die. Sometimes it can be a good thing in terms of social change and progress. Other times it is a completely awful thing that does nothing but destroy. While I completely understand and agree with having an anti-war sentiment it does nothing to help the situation when you can not view a war objectively or via its own merits.
 
So yes, it is alright to use terms such as 'underrated' and 'greatest' when it comes to this topic and having a knee-jerk reaction to the subject does nothing to further the understanding of it. Just like martial arts, some of us study wars so we know better on how to avoid having them in the future. After all, there is a lot more to war than actual combat. If anything, if you read some Sun Tzu, combat is usually the last thing at play in any conflict. It's pretty interesting all around - I suggest some of you open your minds to it. Burying your head in the sand solves nothing.

That was actually a fairly rationally written article. I'm all for hating Fox News, but when you do so, you better do so for the right reasons.
 
We'll see what happens when this hits the TV screen though.

That demon is in the game. It's the final boss of world 2.

While I don't think The Resistance is Muse's best work, it's still Muse, which in my mind puts it a notch above a lot of the stuff coming out today. I think it starts out pretty good, but loses me in the middle, which is a bit of a shame. Muse was one of the only bands who I could slap a CD on and listen to it all the way through without wanting to skip ahead. Sadly, The Resistance doesn't have that appeal.

Not necessarily. While hyperspeed is faster than light travel, traveling faster than light does not mean you are entering hyperspeed.

You should have taken the time to think about this and instead said, "I do not agree with Jeff's review," rather than coming out and saying "it's off the mark." Sorry you're butt-hurt, but that's your own fault for being unable to enjoy games and leaving it at that, not Jeff's, for giving his more informed opinion on a game.
 
For instance, I enjoy the Dynasty Warriors series, even though it consistently receives scores that indicate it's rather low quality. Do I usually agree with these reviews? Yes! But it doesn't stop me from still finding my own enjoyment out of the game.

Alpha Protocol, Assassin's Creed 2, Modern Warfare 2, Halo 3: ODST, Dragon Age.

That's just off the top of my head. I'm sure I'm forgetting a few. I'm starting to think developers are delaying to 2010 though because they don't want to compete with the high profile games being released this fall.

I hear Band Hero 2 is slated for a December release, with Band Hero 3 coming out in early 2010.
