Really NCIS Writers, Really?

March 10, 2011 -

Does it hurt to do a little research before writing an episode of NCIS? Apparently it's a major hassle for whomever penned an episode of the popular CBS crime drama about an MMO, as evidenced in this clip from the show. The storyline features a fake MMO called Fear Tower 3 and a "high scorer" named "MaxDestructo." Are they playing breakout or an MMO? Maybe they meant to convey that these gamers were playing an online game like Quake Live or Battlefield Heroes. I do not know, so watch the video and judge for yourselves.

Aside from Final Fantasy XI and XIV, I can't think of another MMO game with a numerical sequence in it's name.

Another thing: She has something like 10 or 12 cores in the machine and the game's title screen is that shitty? It looks like a beginning PhotoShop project. And now class we are going to make a video game title screen mock-up of a title that even an insane madman or desperate out of work programmer would work on.

It's ok, image software gets hurt in the same way:

Lol at all the butthurt comments on this page. Including the article itself.

You really think anyone in the entertainment industry cares whether or not something is politically correct and/or accurate in the eyes of those who actually know?

There's a reason FOX News goes off and lies about every little thing, or why they exaggerated Mass Effect's side boobage: Because it gets ratings.

Higher ratings = More money.

It was a painful clip to watch.  MMORPGs tend to keep score via an invisible epeen meter.

Re: Really NCIS Writers, Really?

This was on like 3 weeks ago, why the outrage now?

It wasn't that bad really, the point was some baddies were trading secrets through the code of a game, and you could see it by breaking the highest score possible which the bad guys did through some hack. That girl in the clip broke the score legit and so the bad guys were after her as she'd seen the top secret documents.

Was cheesy but it wasn't really having a go at games.

Re: Really NCIS Writers, Really?

okay, that doesn't sound too cheesy to me. it actually sounds a bit interesting

While I was able to ignore most of the really bad tech stuff in that movie, I did do a double-take at the fact that a single hard drive was able to store something like 17 terabytes of financial data.

At first I tried to rationalize it by saying "the data's probably mostly plaintext, it could just be seventeen terabytes before compression". Then I remembered that it had been downloaded via a satellite connection, at which point I went "okay, fuck it, I'm just going to watch Bruce Willis kill a helicopter with a car and ignore as much of the dialogue as i can".

Is this the same show that said Sean Hannity wanted to murder children?   

Re: Really NCIS Writers, Really?

I dunno how are Live leaderboards tallyed? It can be equatable to a "score" sometimes.

Copyright infringement is nothing more than civil disobedience to a bad set of laws. Let's renegotiate them.

That's...painful.

Hopefully they do a show on Black and White too. "Would you like to see my Pokemans?"

Wonderkarpwhich is interesting cause this the first one 100% made by 2k games after the THQ buy11/23/2014 - 4:17pm
Wonderkarpbleh. the more I play WWE 2k15 on PS4, the more I get disappointed.11/23/2014 - 4:09pm
Neo_DrKefkaIt happened around 1030 this morning. I was not blooding because blood was on my hands11/23/2014 - 3:50pm
Andrew EisenThat depends on a lot. Were you bleeding at the time you requested to leave or did you want to leave work to go to the doctor over an incident that happened on a different day that you didn't file an incident report for?11/23/2014 - 3:21pm
Neo_DrKefkaThat would be a major OSHA violation correct?11/23/2014 - 1:54pm
Neo_DrKefkaOff topic but I was at work and went over to the first aid kit to get some eye drops. I look at my hand and noticed blood on my hands. My employers said their is no incident report and they won't send me to see a doctor and that I am abandoning my job.11/23/2014 - 1:54pm
MaskedPixelanteThe more I hear about AC Unity being rushed out, the more I think Ubisoft was telling the truth about why they couldn't add female co-op models.11/23/2014 - 1:14pm
IanCI wouldnt say the 360/PS3 version were superior. They were different games.11/23/2014 - 11:49am
MechaTama31It's hard to rank my top 5 against eachother, but they would include Ghostbusters, Back to the Future (all of it), Monty Python and the Holy Grail, The Shawshank Redemption, and The Princess Bride.11/23/2014 - 11:09am
Andrew EisenTrue, but I liked the fact that rather than do a crappy looking version of the PS3/360 version, it went with an art style more suited to the Wii's strengths.11/23/2014 - 12:26am
Wonderkarpif I had the money, I'd buy one of those expensive proton pack replicas11/22/2014 - 11:25pm
Wonderkarpthats the wii version though. the PS3/360 version is far superior.11/22/2014 - 11:19pm
Andrew EisenOdd that there was no hose connecting the thrower to the backpack. Was there just no more horsepower left in the Wii to animate it? And did seriously no one on the dev or QA team notice the Ghostbusters patch on the player's sleeve was backwards?11/22/2014 - 11:17pm
Andrew EisenI played it one the Wii and rather liked it.11/22/2014 - 11:15pm
Neo_DrKefkaGhostbusters on the PS3 and Xbox is Ghostbusters III for me. It was a short but wonderful experience.11/22/2014 - 11:13pm
Andrew EisenGhostbusters is my number one but the other films in my top 5 are Blues Brothers, Nightmare Before Christmas, Little Shop of Horrors (the Frank Oz one) and Jaws.11/22/2014 - 11:05pm
