Primarily PC gaming opinions from a rather opinionated author.
Oh boy oh boy oh boy oh boy oh boy
Feh... I never really got into Warhammer. Warhammer just seemed like a bunch of D&D nerds got together and tried to do a Battletech/Paranoia/Cyberpunk kind of tie ins to "be cool."I am as unimpressed now as I was when I first saw it.
This comment engine sucks a fat cock.
I refuse to accept any criticism of any web engine from a man who steadfastly refuses to stop using IE.And furthermore, your inexplicable bias against what is hands down the most absolute bad-ass sci-fi fantasy gaming intellectual property ever put upon this earth draws your judgement into even further question.Heck, WH40K: Dawn of War was the best RTS ever created (peaking with the Dark Crusade expansion), until Supreme commander took that bar ever higher. But it's still a great load of fun today.
PUH-lease!!! What's my unaltered undeniable fact that has led to my steadfast refusal: Despite all its supposed faults, it's STILL in use by more people and SPECIFICALLY supported by MORE sites than any other browser out there today.It wins in the 'technological democracy' that is the internet, and unless you're a fucking retard communist, or some sort of technical elitist who just can't get over his hate for Bill Gates, you'd realize that over and above everything else the sheer VOLUME of users speaks more than anything else.All the other browsers I've ever had to deal with were to feature poor, requiring endless "open source add ons" such that it quickly becomes unreliable and unusable, and ultimately unsecure.You know what industry I work for, and I'm sure you can understand that that particular industry is EXTREMELY interested in security and stability of products used by its employees.Guess which browser through their own independant tests showed was most secure, or at the very least, most 'securable'? Yes, that's right IE, and that's inspite of the majority of *nix acolites where the word "WinTel" is always said in a scornfull and derisive tone.Bitch all you want, there's a reason Microsoft hasn't decided to buy a "better" browser. The reason: Because there really ain't one that's "better enough" in enough ways.
Holy argumentum ad populum, batman! If the internet's "technological democracy" was a true indicator of quality, AOL would still be the #1 ISP. By your logic, Lady Gaga is the finest musician on planet earth. By your logic, McAfee and Norton are still acceptable antivirus solutions... oh wait, THEY ARE TO YOU! ROFFL-COPTER!
Dude, you already know that I don't really dig on Lady Gaga, and I don't use McAfee OR Norton, AND, you already know I think that AOL is The Devil.The fact that AOL is basically a non-player as an ISP currently speaks volumes towards making my point for me.The fact that McAfee and Norton are losing market share to FREE anti virus/spyware/malware packages out there, ALSO speaks volumes towards making my point for me.ALL the browsers we're mentioning are FREE browsers, have been pretty much since day one. Some of these browsers have been around much longer than IE, yet IE has the largest share of the browser market now. Why? Absolutely positively NOT because it was "better" than any of the other browsers, but because the other browsers aren't SO MUCH better than IE that it becomes an IMPERETIVE to replace IE.Most of those browsers out there have one or more components or features that are better than IE, but the difference is so marginal it doesn't make up for the effort or eventual risk to install 'em.And as far as WH40k being any "big deal"... Pfft... I'd rather play the old GEnie implementation of MMO mechwarrior. THAT was THE shiznit brudda!See you this weekend!
Oh, you coming down this weekend? Or did you mean SGC, that's 3 weekends away. Oh, I get it, probably coming to visit for father's day, aye?Well, when you're here, I'll take you to what must be the best restaurant in the entire world, McDonald's... because it must be the best, since it by far has the most customers of any food service establishment EVAR! ;)See you guys sunday.
I must have made my points poorly if you're going to continue to harp on that...Ah well... I'm amazed at the amount of time and effort people will constantly invest in "better" non-Microsoft products to avoid having to invest that same amount of time and effort (or in a lot of cases, LESS time and effort) in a Microsoft product.People like cheering for the underdog, I get that. Underdog's are brave and give us hope. That doesn't mean that the "big dogs" are naturally evil bastards by default.And WH40k still isn't all that great a game genre...
I'm not ragging on Microsoft products in general. If you have actual work to do, you need a windows OS. Microsoft Office is still the standard in document types (even though they decide to inexplicably rearrange where everything is every 10 years or so), Windows Home Server is just downright cool, and the list just goes on and on.It's just IE I'm saying that sucks. Because it does.And the truth that both you and I know is that the only reason IE is "more popular" is because it comes with the OS. If Firefox, or Opera, or heck even that half-baked fantasy-browser Chrome had come preinstalled with windows, IT would be the most popular browser.
And 40k rules and if you can't come to terms with that, then you have to turn in your geekery license.
My geekery license is maintained by my unending love of BattleTech and other aspects.I don't need to play a game that makes a poor attempt at merging "fantasy" gaming with "sci-fi" gaming.Sorry, I can still see the masking tape that they're using to bind the two together, and it just looks shitty, no matter how much of the "Kool-aid" I drink...
