Oh wow.

An old white Republican and a self righteous hipster democrat. Yep this election is TOTALLY different.

The guy who does that comic used to be a staff member on this website....

 

Re: Webcomic: Obama, McCain & Guitar Hero

Seems like according to this that perhaps the last game McCain played would be Pac Man, which is still newer than the last game Obama has said he played with Pong. >_>

 

Either that or it's just the last game McCain heard of. <_<

Re: Webcomic: Obama, McCain & Guitar Hero

Shouldn't Obama be asking where the ball and paddles are?

Re: Webcomic: Obama, McCain & Guitar Hero

 Yeah, and asking where the quarters go! McCain's comment should have been more along the lines of "Where are the flippers at? TILT!"

Re: Webcomic: Obama, McCain & Guitar Hero

Well, I believe they're using videogames as a metaphor for underachi... I mean, as a metaphor for being in touch with what's going on.

Re: Webcomic: Obama, McCain & Guitar Hero

I see wat you did there...

Also, I think most politicians are 'out of touch' with what's going on.

Re: Webcomic: Obama, McCain & Guitar Hero

From the linked website

"The spin of his campaign is that polls don’t matter and things are “more or less tied,” but really, is there any hope at this point?"

If McCain actually wins this thing, there's going to be a major backlash and investigation into the republicans. The numbers already showed some suspicious things in 2004, but the race was closer then. If the GOP pull a win here.... woah!

Re: Webcomic: Obama, McCain & Guitar Hero

There is absolutely no connection to the fact gas prices are plummeting right before a Republican needs a big win.   please keep your tinfoil hats on and look the other way.

Here are we -- and yonder yawns the universe.

Re: Webcomic: Obama, McCain & Guitar Hero

Nope, it is about supply and demand.  Oil prices rose on demand.  They are plummeting because people have lost lots of money in the global economic crisis and cutting back on their trips, holidays, getting more fuel efficient cars etc and so oil has had to drop.

Additionally, oil prices rose exceptionally high because of speculative investment.  People were buying up oil to sell at a higher price and it's a self fulfilling proficy.  Once they start to hit a peak and people start to sell, the speculators quickly sell up all their stock and the price comes tumbling down again.  In reality, the price should have settled at about $100/barrel but it coincided with the banking troubles and financial recession and so just kept on going.

The notion it was something to do with a conspiracy theory or Republicans trying to win an election is hillarious.

Re: Webcomic: Obama, McCain & Guitar Hero

What does GOP stand for?

Re: Webcomic: Obama, McCain & Guitar Hero

Grand Old Party.

Which is odd, consdidering that the Republican Party is newer than the Democrat Party.


If you go crazy then I will still call you Superman.

Re: Webcomic: Obama, McCain & Guitar Hero

Its implying that most of the people in that party are old and out of touch :D

Matthew Wilsonit is a video talking about why certain games/products/consoles do well, and others do not. he back it up with solid research.04/18/2014 - 3:56pm
Andrew EisenI'm not keen on blind links. What is it?04/18/2014 - 3:45pm
Matthew Wilsonthis is worth a whatch https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MyXcr6sDRtw&list=PL35FE5C4B157509C904/18/2014 - 3:43pm
MaskedPixelanteNumber 3: Night Dive was brought to the attention of the public by a massive game recovery, and yet most of their released catalogue consists of games that other people did the hard work of getting re-released.04/17/2014 - 8:46pm
MaskedPixelanteNumber 2: If Humongous Entertainment wanted their stuff on Steam, why didn't they talk to their parent company, which does have a number of games published on Steam?04/17/2014 - 8:45pm
MaskedPixelanteNumber 1: When Night Dive spent the better part of a year teasing the return of true classics, having their big content dump be edutainment is kind of a kick in the stomach.04/17/2014 - 8:44pm
Matthew Wilsonhttp://www.giantbomb.com/articles/jeff-gerstmann-heads-to-new-york-takes-questions/1100-4900/ He talks about the future games press and the games industry. It is worth your time even though it is a bit long, and stay for the QA. There are some good QA04/17/2014 - 5:28pm
IanCErm so they shouldn't sell edutainment at all? Why?04/17/2014 - 4:42pm
MaskedPixelanteNot that linkable, go onto Steam and there's stuff like Pajama Sam on the front-page, courtesy of Night Dive.04/17/2014 - 4:13pm
Andrew EisenOkay, again, please, please, PLEASE get in a habit of linking to whatever you're talking about.04/17/2014 - 4:05pm
MaskedPixelanteAnother round of Night Dive teasing and promising turns out to be stupid edutainment games. Thanks for wasting all our time, guys. See you never.04/17/2014 - 3:44pm
Matthew WilsonAgain the consequences were not only foreseeable, but very likely. anyone who understood supply demand curvs knew that was going to happen. SF has been a econ/trade hub for the last hundred years.04/17/2014 - 2:45pm
Andrew EisenMixedPixelante - Would you like to expand on that?04/17/2014 - 2:43pm
MaskedPixelanteWell, I am officially done with Night Dive Studios. Unless they can bring something worthwhile back, I'm never buying another game from them.04/17/2014 - 2:29pm

NeenekoAh yes, because by building something nice they were just asking for people to come push them out. Consequences are protested all the time when other people are implementing them.04/17/2014 - 2:06pm
Matthew Wilsonok than they should not protest when the consequences of that choice occur.04/17/2014 - 1:06pm
NeenekoIf people want tall buildings, plenty of other cities with them. Part of freedom and markets is communities deciding what they do and do not want built in their collective space.04/17/2014 - 12:55pm
