    I've just been listening to a friend rant about the overuse of "bloom" effects in modern games, where they add ridiculous amounts of lighting at the expense of the framerate. I just thought you might like his conclusion:

    Personally, I agree that bloom is getting overused a bit too much these days, but what do you guys think? I also agree that game storylines are generally pretty weak :p

    Grr, as soon as I saw the title I ran off to VGCats to find that comic, and found it, and copied the URL, and came back and opened the thread to post it wittily and you beat me to it! BAH!
