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.

Re: Really NCIS Writers, Really?

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

Exactly, I can prove how much bigger my DPS is...

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?"

InfophileSony's customer service has always been crap, but up till now it's been manageable crap. A few cases of people having to pay for being hacked at worst, the Other OS removal... This one is going to be much worse for them.03/28/2015 - 1:34pm
WymorenceWhen did Sony start doing the ransomware stuff...? other than the old BMG rootkit stuff that is.03/28/2015 - 12:45pm

Andrew EisenThat would mean either Nintendo's next home console will be out by next year or the next Zelda game is suffering a two year delay. Both extraordinarily unlikely.03/27/2015 - 8:34pm
Matthew Wilsonsome people are thinking we might have a Twilight Princess situation on our hands, what do you guys think?03/27/2015 - 8:01pm
MechaCrashMiyamoto once said "a delayed game is eventually good, a bad game is bad forever." While this can be taken to excess, it is good that Nintendo remembers it.03/27/2015 - 7:44pm
MaskedPixelanteYay for it not being a buggy mess like AC Unity. Boo that it got delayed til November 2016.03/27/2015 - 7:07pm
Andrew EisenAgreed. Considering we've seen nothing of the game (and those who did see it last E3, said it was super duper early) I would be quite surprised to see it this year.03/27/2015 - 5:28pm
Matthew WilsonI am sure star fox is 2016 too.03/27/2015 - 5:14pm
ZippyDSMleeThe primary reasons I would get a Nintendo system is Zelda and Metroid, Metroid prime collection was beyond words awesome even if 3 was the weakest one. I played TWP on the emulator I have Skyward Sword but like TWP I been putting it off…. LOL03/27/2015 - 5:14pm
Daniel LewisI actually thought star fox would be the game to be delayed,hopefully that isn't as well!03/27/2015 - 5:13pm
Daniel Lewiswoah post shared at the same time matthew,you just beat me!03/27/2015 - 5:11pm
