Ya, and you were not really a sleeper on this board to make the first "sweet I talked trash to a professional athlete" post.

Tell me what you do/did/don't do for a living so I can make fun of you. Not sure if there is a fantasy draft for people what you do but it's worth a shot.

Cool thing will be to wait until you have a career ending injury then do the macho tough guy post on some obscure internet forum that couldn't have less to do with the topic at hand than tissue paper does to hand grenades.

Putz.

Just make sure there's some Punch-out style boss fights. (Seriously)

Now it all fits.

Spoken like a man who's never competed, or won, at anything above a hot dog eating contest past high school.

As with most games, I'm not sure what the point is of attacking this project at this point. I know the internet is full of contrarians and it's really cool to hate on this because of schilling, if you're one of those counter culture nerdlings, but honestly the proof will be in the pudding.

They've very obviously assmbled some good talent, and lord knows he's a competitive guy who isn't going to put this much effort into something half assed.

And honestly, at the end of the day, it's going to be released, and a **** load of people are going to love it, another **** load are going to hate it, and there's really not ever going to be a way to be right or wrong, it'll be their spin on how an MMO should be, and for some people it will be a revelation, and for others it'll be a bastardization and they'll go back to leveling another character to the ceiling on WOW

I guess i just don't see the point of *****ing based on a couple of screenshots. Someone new throws their hat into the ring and in a really big way, this seems like something we should generally be excited about.

Full Disclosure: I am the guy who started the dirty water thread, I might not be unbiased on this subject

does it bother you that contract years magically motivate players to do better?

i'm not sure why you are questioning my physical prowess as i can crush rocks with my bare hands. thats not the issue here. my statement was that A) i'm a yankee fan, and B) arods stats this year pale in comparison to last year, when he ultimately earned the largest contract in baseball history.

coincidence?

Ah crap, I better elaborate real quick before this thread degenerates any further.

Right now, MMO (read: WoW) boss fights are stinky bad. Everything is timed. This leads to people sitting in a fight staring at the chat screen where notices are displayed every 5 seconds telling them what to do. ("Boss A uses Attack B in 10 seconds, DPS back off")

Now look at Punch-Out, where fights are based on awareness and acuity. Attacks are random, but can be predicted by visual cues on the part of your opponent. This makes for a much more fun and intense gameplay experience, as the player has to devote that much more attention, and it only takes a couple of mistakes to lose.

Think about it.

Did it ever occur to you that playing 162 games in 180 days, well 190 games in 208 days + post season, against the best players in the world is hard?

You, being a Yankee fan, know I am not a big Arod fan by any stretch. But he's going to retire, likely, as the greatest hitter to ever play. If he does so, and he does so clean, what can you say?

Ernie Banks never won one, yet he might be one of the most beloved men ever, and rightfully so. If you don't like Alex for any number of reasons besides his ability to play the game then cool, but the guy can play baseball, and for the most part better than anyone alive.

Is he someone I am nervous about walking to the plate in October? Not really, but I'd much rather see about 600 other guys than him.

The things he can do with a bat are almost inhuman...

Ok thread derailed....

I'm gay for schilling now. Can we get a subforum where he fends off TW nutjobs spouting off vitriolic comments for no other reason than to play "dunk the celeb" on our forums?

i seem to remember a time where we didnt much care for penny arcade's opinions, and now we're praying to them? nice, glad i missed that memo.
