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.

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

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?"

benohawkThat still isn't Steam pay royalties. At best it is Bethesda not being willing to relicense the music,07/27/2015 - 12:51pm
Infophile(cont'd) different service. This often happened with TV shows, where music was only licensed for broadcast, but not for DVD release. So for many older shows, they either have to relicense it or use different/no music for the DVD release.07/27/2015 - 12:36pm
Infophile@benohawk: It most likely comes down to the original licensing agreement for the music in it. Often those agreements only license it for the medium it first releases in, so it has to be re-licensed if it's rereleased in a different form or through a ...07/27/2015 - 12:35pm

black mantaI recommend using the KMQuake II patch which supports .ogg music files, then downloading the music from someplace, then dropping it in to a music folder into the \baseq2 directory.07/27/2015 - 10:32am
black mantaI got Quake 2 during the Steam Quakecon sale. Funny thing is, there's no music for it! Guess Steam didn't want to pay the royalty fees or something.07/27/2015 - 10:30am
