Evening Reading

You again, Evening Reading? I see how this is going to be. You think you're so clever. I don't have long to write this or much to say so here, here's some stuff that I enjoyed from our E3 2010 coverage today.

  • XCOM may not be X-COM but it still looks like a video game I would like to play. I was extremely over-excited by something unfathomable when I wrote that post.
  • The 'Wanted' multiplayer mode in Assassin's Creed Brotherhood sounds an awful lot like The Ship, which is surely positive.
  • Mafia II is not getting nearly enough attention. Perhaps people are scared off by its awful E3 Playboy 'booth babe' photo snapshot horrid dress-up stupid? One can certainly hope so. I will not let this make me dislike the game.
  • Dynamic cutting in Metal Gear Solid Rising looks lovely.
  • Project Dust. The creator of Another World is developing a "spiritual heir to Populous" with an alterable, dynamically-simulated world. Gosh.
  • Raymond Padilla wrote an Epic Mickey preview for us. He's nice.
  • Civilization V!

Look, we both know I'll probably see you tomorrow too, Evening Reading, but there's no need to get cocky about it. Yeah, shove off, you wazzock.

    Hey you Chicago peoples.

    I'm here, in my hotel, bored and hungry. I tried AdultFriendFinder but it costs money and its full of fat black chicks or hot 29 year olds that want 9" dicks and simulated rape.

    I guess I'll have to settle for a shacker.

    I'm staying at the Hilton on S. Michigan Ave. Impromptu Shackmeet!

      What's wrong with the hot 29 year old chicks who want a 9" dick and simulated rape?

        Contrary to popular belief, I don't have a 9" penis. Simulated rape is fine, I suppose.

          They won't know about the lack of a 9" until you're raping them and by then it's too late so go for it.

                I am surprised there are conferences for such a thing! I didn't even know this was a specialty. Now I am going to be seeing virtualization everywhere I look!

                  Most of what I do day to day is Citrix XenDesktop/XenApp and VMware ESX - but I'm working on a XenDesktop book now as well.

                    What do you think of Hyper-V?

                      I haven't used it in a production environment, but from what I have seen, it's pretty good given the price point.

                      RemoteFX (RDP 7.1) looks pretty cool too. (Req. Hyper-V)

            Catch a bus north to Superior, get some Giordanos deep dish pizza into you. I'm at work, otherwise I'd offer to come out.

      There's gotta be something you can find to do in Chi-town. Start your own Chris Ware ripoff comic. Write poetry about the wind. Walk to the beach.
