First time back here on Gamespot since Giantbomb happened. I feel weird. digi_matrixI know, right? Just look at these ugly ass forums. I can see why Giant Bomb doesn't have animated gifs and signatures. They are kludgy as hell.

[QUOTE="mosespippy"]I knew a lot of people who used folding@home back in the day but as soon as it changed to Life with Playstation they all stopped using it.stevenk4k5I don't understand why when Folding@Home is still an option in Life with PlayStation. O_OMarketing and Branding. Before the PS3 came out all us Sony fanboys would read anything about Playstation 3. A bunch of articles saying it was gonna save lives come along and BAM you've got people reading about folding@home. Then they buy a PS3 and it has folding@home right in the XMB. One day it disappears without notice and something you've never heard of shows up called Life with Playstation. Without brand recognition it doesn't gain an audience. It shows up less and less in people currently playing status and that lowers the recognition ever more.
I remember a guy on my friends list who used f@h all the time but then when it disappeared and I was using Lw/P he sent me a message asking what it was. He had no clue. It doesn't help that the first thing to appear when you start it up is a world map with news from all over. I don't think the average gamer cares about global news and probably turns it off before checking out the rest of the program.
[QUOTE="hillelslovak"][QUOTE="mosespippy"]I'm in a trophy war with 2 other friends who have more games than me, so every game I get needs to have trophies for me to keep up/surpass them. I'd love to buy it, but it needs trophies.psyumWow, you don't really get videogames at all, do you???? yeah cmon...wouldnt it be better to win a war about "who is actually a better gamer", and get actual games ?I still have fun with my games. I play Rock Band and Rock Band 2 with my roommates, and I have done Motorstorm and Burnout races with the guys I'm waring with. Was clanmates with one of them for 6 months in warhawk before the clan fell apart. I won't grind for some trophy just to get up on them. I get good games and have fun with them while trying to achieve a goal. If at the end of the day I'm not ahead, then that's a reason to continue playing a good game, or give up and get another good game.

I'd love to buy it, but it needs trophies.CannedWormsAre you serious?One guy on my friends list has 28 games with trophies while another has 16. I only have 8, but I'm only trailing them by a little bit. One game could put me ahead. I will get KZ2, but they both have it preordered already, and I know they will end up getting Uncharted 2, which I also intend on getting, so they will stay ahead if I buy any non trophy games.
