I never really felt like the city beyond the Citadel was alive and I know that it's due in part to the developers looking to give the game a larger scope, focusing on a story that encompassed more of the galaxy as a whole, but I think it'd be great to see a game set in a futuristic city, but approached in a way that would suggest that it's got just as much history as D.C. does in Fallout 3. I feel like someone needs to craft a story set in that world much in the same way that I wish directors would take some cues from the more imaginative replica Panerai PAM00279 Men's Watch novels of the 70s and 80s (and more recently novels like “Altered Carbon” by Richard K. Morgan) and craft a story that doesn't so much attempt to relate the more fantastical concepts of Sci-fi to the world that we know today, and instead looks to wildly speculate on what things might be like for us (if we're still around) some 3,000 years in the future.

I love Mass Effect, but something about playing a game set in that world with the freedom to explore and the subtleties (ME 1 was closer to this feeling — ME 2 seemed to ditch the RPG elements and go for the big-budget blockbuster feel) that you'll find in a game like Oblivion sounds really intriguing.I point to a Sci-fi game replica Panerai PAM00243 Men's Watch chiefly because that's my favorite genre, but it could work in the form of some sort of government conspiracy storyline set in present day NY or Chicago with or without Sci-fi undertones (X-Files RPG?), or a story that begins here in the present day but ends some thousand years in the future on another planet.

Or perhaps it shifts between the two...or many different planets (I suggest the gov't conspiracy angle mainly because I'd imagine that some developers might see it as a more palatable subject for audiences).Personally, I've always found it to be an awesome idea but it wasn't until I played the Mothership Zeta DLC and Bioshock that I wondered what could come of a game that combined the depth of the former with the latter swiss replica watches game's storytelling, but took things in a direction that would elicit the feelings of wonder that I'd imagine people got from watching 2001: A Space Odyssey for the first time.Lately I've found myself really admiring the retro Sci-fi book covers of guys like Dean Ellis and looking at something like the cover I've attached to this post always makes me wonder what the world depicted there (of which we only get a glimpse) would be like.

991—Which do you think should be the top game?Check out all of our iPhone game reviews.”You won't be able to play Ubisoft's strategy game R.U.S.E. using Microsoft's Xbox 360 Kinect anytime soon, but the PC version is another matter entirely.Here we see multitouch and gesture computing company Evoluce boss Wolfgang replica Panerai PAM00212 Men's Watch Herfurtner navigating the opening battle from Eugen System's R.U.S.E. using a combination of his company's software and Microsoft's motion-sensing camera peripheral. It's the same technology we saw last month controlling basic Windows 7 tasks.

This is likely the closest many people will come to controlling R.U.S.E. on a touch screen, as our own Stephen Totilo did back in 2009.It's certainly an impressive display of gesture-based control, but I couldn't see myself preferring it over the standard mouse and keyboard controls the PC game comes with. It's novel, but not really all that practical.”In the replica Panerai PAM00092 Men's Watch first installment of the daily Speak-Up on Kotaku for the year 2011, commenter Murkurial wonders why game developers aren't spending more time exploring the deeply detailed worlds created by science fiction's greatest authors.

What has anyone heard (or what are your thoughts) about a company like Bethesda a game in the mold of Fallout 3, but set in a more dystopian or cyberpunk, futuristic setting? Not the “burning cars lining the streets and everyone is dressed like replica Panerai PAM00161 Men's Watch someone out of Mad Max” dystopian aesthetic, but something more along the lines of a Mass Effect or Deus Ex.Something with the scope of Fallout 3/Oblivion, but set in that city that you can see off in the distance when you're watching cut-scenes of Mass Effect on the Citadel.

It may not be shooting at enemies' exposed buttocks

“Here's a better idea: 'Zoom camera into Tifa's cleavage!'“ the game apparently instructs. It may not be shooting at enemies' exposed buttocks, but it's sure to titillate the longtime Final Fantasy fan more.Here is the description in full, if you're worried/excited about the Teen-rated content in Dissidia 012: Final Fantasy:This is an action game in which replica Panerai PAM00831 Men's Watch players compete in one-on-one battles with characters from the Final Fantasy universe. Players engage in hand-to-hand combat in 3D arenas and use axes, swords, boomerangs, and magic spells (e.g., energy balls, summoned creatures) to drain opponents' life meters.

Battles are highlighted by cries of pain, colorful explosions, and slow-motion sequences that zoom in on defeated characters. A handful of female characters wear revealing outfits that expose large amounts of cleavage; some of these characters' breasts also jiggle during combat. Some in-game text in also contains suggestive material (e.g., “Here's a better idea: 'Zoom camera into Tifa's cleavage!'“). Various portrait galleries depict replica Panerai PAM00140 Men's Watch partially nude female characters; the general shapes of their bodies are displayed instead of actual detail (i.e., no nipples or genitalia).

In the gorgeous settingof Joshua Tree the togs stood out like snickers in a swimming pool so Ishooed away all the assistants and crew and James asked Sara if shewould take her clothes off to make a stronger photograph. Brave girl!We didn’t shoot one single frame with clothes in it, and I thought Iwould get canned because I was pretty new at the job.

he said in his last report. Do you have a question of your own? So, I expect you fall into that same category, except trail-running, not trail-biking. Actually, if you’re doing a 50-miler, you’re also nuts, but that’s just an aside. You don’t say what you wear replica IWC 5442-01 watch now—something pretty heavy, I take it. So you’d be fine in any reasonable trail-runner, but probably one with a Gore-Tex bootie, as it could be very wet in the Headlands area in December. MORE

Day three of the Austin City Limits festival began a little rough around the edges. We sought out the solution in a greasy plate of enchiladas at one of my favorite local restaurants, Las Manitas (View this photo).
