Haven't had a chance to look too much, but I just want to say thanks for keeping pagination! So many sites are using never-ending scroll these days....its the absolute worst.

Based on the trailers I thought it was going to be really bad. It surprised me tho -- was super funny I thought. Was really similar to watching family guy. Thought the bear stuff was handled really well too. Usually putting animated stuff in with live actors ends up terrible, but they did a great job with it.

Oh -- and Giovanni Ribisi (the creeper) was fucking great in this heh.

Saw them in 2008 when they came through Omaha. Might be the most memorable show I've been to. Was an interesting atmosphere already cause there was stormy weather with tornados, and even had some random people driving by that had to take shelter at my house before leaving. The show didn't get cancelled though, and my friend got to the venue earlier then me so he was there for the sirens going off. Everyone had to sit in the basement where the bands food and stuff was setup. I guess at one point during this the whole band walked by through the hall playing various instruments. Wish I woulda been there to see that...quite a surreal sounding moment. At some point during the actual show the singer tried to explain how crazy he thought tornados are heh.

But yea the show was incredible -- really awesome how they can pretty much play all the instruments and are constantly moving around playing everything.

Oh and just looked and saw someone had some photos of the show I was at (has a sky pic too) http://www.last.fm/event/605955+Sigur+R%C3%B3s+at+Orpheum+Theatre+on+11+June+2008

@tsiro: Thanks for the info! Unfortunately none of that is relevant to what I'm talking about.

My point was that its nothing like stealing like someone else said. Like not even close. And, if GB doesn't want people to 'press mute' or 'change the channel' then they need to be displaying content that makes sense for their viewers. And hey...like you said its 'easy' to tell what type of people view their site...so should be a breeze! Maybe with all the analytics they'll be able to figure out this crowd likes games.

PS I don't use adblocker -- but with vomit inducing ads like these it makes me think about it :)

@believer258: @zaglis: With extremely obnoxious ads like the one posted in the other thread, I don't fault anyone for using Ad-Block. I'm sure even Jeff, who asked us to turn off Ad-Block in the old days, would understand.

Do you not get it? Money is required to run a website and the reason they're with CBS-I in the first place is because they didn't have enough of it before. They were running out. They were running out because they weren't bringing enough in.

Look, I'm sorry, but these huge ads are just necessary to keep a site like this running. It fucking sucks, but it's needed. It's a necessity. If you don't want to see the ads, then pay for a membership. If you don't want to do that or don't have the money to do that, then suffer the ads.

Then they should make the ads worthwhile. When an engaging or funny ad comes on tv...I'll watch it. If its obnoxious...I'll mute or change the channel. Same thing can apply here. I don't use adblocker btw...but its not hard to understand why people do....and its certainly not wrong to do so.

@Demoskinos: No, because you are already paying for that. You are not (i'm guessing) paying for Giant Bomb

Already paying for cable access you mean? By that logic then you should be agreeing that paying for internet access also means you don't have to worry yourself with viewing ads hehe. You need to rethink this thing...It seriously does not make sense.

Also, I'm sick of people saying "just use AdBlocker". If you use AdBlocker, you are a thief, period. You wouldn't go around telling people to "just take" a loaf of bread if they didn't want to pay the $2 to buy one.

So when I change the channel on TV when the commercials come on...I'm stealing? I didn't realize -- thanks for pointing this out. I'll make sure to view every possible ad in every situation as to make sure I don't thieve from anyone.

"There's a huge difference in only being able to play the game in 720p and only have 720p textures. If you can only play the game in 1280x720, then it will look like garbage on a screen with any other resolution (unless played in window mode). If it's just the textures not being up ressed, then it's not that big of a deal. I doubt that they will lock the resolution to 1280x720 because that would be completely crazy."

Theres a few people saying "720'p'" when talking about textures...sorry but its nonsense. Textures aren't 'p' (progressive scan). Textures also most likely arent going to be 720 in size anyways -- they'd probably be a power of 2 so like 128,512,1024--up to like 8192. So if anyone was talking about '720p' or whatever they were definitely talking about screen resolution.

As you can see in the direct translation, "720p" was never mentioned. By "There's no change to the resolution" they're just talking about the textures.

"はい。基本的には忠実な移植になります。解像度に変更はありませんし" = Yes, It's basically a faithful port. There's no change to the resolution

"フレームレートが60になるということも ありません。" = The frame rate won't be 60 FPS

Ahh--well I wasn't saying they said 720p...was just pointing out that if someone were saying 720p it would have to be about screen res as it doesn't even apply to textures for the reasons I mention.

As you can see at the bottom of the OP it says "Many people have pointed out that the 720p part refers to the TEXTURES and not the pixel resolution."...which again, is total nonsense.

@Pinworm45 You still sound like a whiny baby. You guys wanted a port, you got a fuckin' port.

They are still selling a product here. Its not really that crazy for consumers to expect better for the money they spend.
