theres a 10 minute video out. The game looks really good but if you're expecting a new Tribes you'll be disappointed. Essentially it looks like Borderlands with a cleaner sci-fi manga style with a small helping of RPG upgrading and persistance. In a way it looks like what Global Agenda should've been.

I remember reading the footnote in your post but it's implication simply didn't register (NPI).

re BIA: I thought Hells Highway pretty much tanked at retail but I guess I was wrong if they plan on continuing the IP.

One other bit of info not included here is that Gearbox now owns the rights to Duke. Period.

If Pitchford was able to pull THAT off without draining the company's working capital he deserves to be an egotistical prick.

"Gearge Broussards comment on two weapons in DNF on Shacknews forums-

Yeah, blame us for it if you want. It may change in the future and I don't know what will happen with it, but it was us. I stand by it too, as you cannot discount designing games for a modern world and part of that world is consoles where the bulk of the sales can be. And on those consoles you have a controller. We tried for a long time to support lots of guns but we simply could not find a nice way to map it to a controller, despite trying 4-5 designs. We gave it enough time and decided to stop swimming against the current and adopt what was basically the "standard".

It's not 1996 anymore."

Even Derek Smart was able to figure out a way to map a HUGE amount of commands for a space sim onto the 360 controller. What it comes down to is Fat Man doesn't think console gamers are smart enough to to adapt to what is essentially a "Alt + Key" system. Discounting even that scenario most gamers on PC use a mouse wheel to scroll between weapons. On the gamepad you could apply the "mousewheel" system to the D-Pad.

After a few years of the "Gears of War" look in every title to come out its nice to see how developers are bringing bright, saturated colors back into gaming again.

all I know about Minecraft is that some people spend a huge amount of time and effort building stuff and then the /b/tards kick the door in and destroy everything they can.

yes, its juvenile but hilarious.

the "Meet the Team" shorts were ALL brilliant and highly entertaining. Further, the dialogue and great sense of humor shown in EP3 made that game. It seems they definitely have the talent.

Stubbs is some good shit. Not too heavy on the sugar.

Best way to cook chicken on the grill is to microwave the suckers in a covered dish until they are about %75 cooked then transfer them to the grill. Make sure you oil the grill first as the chicken skin has a tendency to stick.

Oh, and drink several beers before you start cooking. It makes you feel like you know what you're doing Chef

4. Re: id: No Tech 5 Licensing Aug 12, 2010, 22:02 Hump
 
"It's like, look, this is a competitive advantage and we want to keep it within games we publish - not necessarily exclusively to id or id titles, but if you're going to make a game with id Tech 5 then it needs to be published by Bethesda, which I think is a fair thing."

Its not a matter if its a "fair" thing, it's "is it a SMART thing to do?"

No one is going to buy a game simply because of the tech involved. In the end how an engine looks is in the hands of the artists, not the programmers. Why wouldn't you want to recoup all the labor costs that was involved in making the engine and its peripheral apps? Saying "it needs to be published by Bethesda" is an asinine statement that smacks of empty PR cheerleading for the company.

at this point I don't see how RAGE could lose. Just by the length of the development its obvious it isn't shovelware. Post Apocalyptic shooter with RPG elements, auto racing and combat.....from iD = license to print money
