Sex and Video Games



Besides the fact that his voice gets a little annoying at the end, I think this professor does a great job of explaining the brief history of sex in video games as well as what the future brings for the genre.

Also, you can talk about the Indy movie now.

I agree the CGI aliens were super lame. But after reading up on crystal skulls people really do believe there are thirteen and when they all get together some fucked up shit happens.

Although the Alien aspect was dumb. Other than that I thought it was really entertaining.

Ummm... T-Minus 3 days until the best weekend ever.

there may be ~13 skulls but they weren't made by an ancient culture

i really like this thing about sex and video games! hehe, hm, it´s funny, but i don´t know any "grown-ups" in austria who play a lot of video games... so here it´s even more so that they are seen as something for kids! i actually have also always thought it´s something you kinda "grow out" of at some point. and it´s so true what he says about how sex is usually portrayed, and how this just adds to the felt immaturity of games. hehe, i like how sex is included in the sims, i think they found a good middle course! ;))

I just saw a video clip of a guy comparing driving drunk in GTA and driving in GTA drunk. I think he was acting but I would like to replicate the results this weekend... thoughts?

I agree about the somewhat above average movie but being completely out of the "Indiana Jones good" realm. I walked in so excited, and left feeling like I was extremely let down by someone close to me. This probably stemmed from my unnatural love of Harrison Ford. I thought that the script writing was really bad with some straight up Even Stevens shit going on. Particularly in the case of Shia learning how to Tarzan from CGI monkeys...
Basically, in my eyes it had its moments, but really did not meet par.
Welcome home Unky!

See I thought all of that shit, the poor writing, the over the top theatrics and the unrealistic abilities of the heroes screamed classic Indiana Jones.

I think the issue is we all associate the old Indy stuff with the occult, like grails and other religious artifacts. While we associate Aliens with scifi, and no one thinks of Indiana jones as scifi.

But there are some that would alien's creating the peru lines (I forget their real names) on the same plane as the other stories from the first movies. I think we don't and an alien movie seems very strange to us for Indiana jones and that's why it doesn't seem to sit right.
