Alright...Got a few minutes to wait for my son to finish eating, so I'll bite.

PC Gaming is not exactly dead. But it's not the same thing I grew up with, either. You can't look at the subscription numbers for MMORPGs and say PC gaming is dead. It's just changed business models.

Personally, I can't stand MMORPGs. I played about a month's worth of WoW and I was so bored. These days the money isn't coming from FPS and CRPGs, it's coming from subscriptions.

I guess the best question is, what happened to all of the good independent developers? It seems like the dream these days is to make a studio just good enough to be bought up by EA. How did those old devs make money back in the day with such a limited audience and why is it so hard to do the same thing today?

Is it so hard to say no to EA's money? Or is it their readily available spots on store shelves?

What can be done to rectify this?

Anyone else think it funny that some of these don't even pass the theoretical stage?

Really.
Their movie prices are now $4.19 for a rental here.
Why would anyone pay that?

Our local ma&pa video store(well, they've got two now) rents their old releases at a buck for five days. Why in the hell would I rent at BB?

News Comments > On Postal III
9. well... Jul 4, 2007, 20:33 Hyatus
 
Postal is still one of my fave games to play. Guilty pleasure indeed.

The 2nd one tried to get you into character by driving you so freakin' nuts with loading times and long-distance walking(never played with the patch) that by the time you got to do any real damage it just wasn't satisfying enough.

Still, I'll give the third one a shot.

There seems to be a lot of speculation on this kid's death.
Who knows, though?

ermm...you know the movie's coming out in May, right? ~.^

These games are so much fun. I wish they'd release more games that made you feel like you were the character.

Wow...I remember when TF2 was supposed to be a Quake 2 mod.
'Bout time they're getting around to it.

Even more technically, the engine was MOSTLY a highly-modded q1 engine, but the original networking code was from Quake2(which has been pretty much written out, I hear).

In control panel->Mouse, there's a setting for mouse
acceleration. Try turning it off and see if that helps.

Actually, I was coming home from my parents' place last
night and saw that really weird white flash in the sky.
Kind of funny that when you see something like that you
expect the worse has happened.

Oh yeah, and I'm in Portland, OR. Quite away's away.

I never visited the BitchX site, but I'm pretty sad to see
that FatBabies hasn't been updated in almost a year.

6. Re: Games too complex May 26, 2004, 15:37 Hyatus
 
Not to mention the GameCube controller.
The button designs on that thing are so weird.
There's no flow like there is on the PSX controller and
older controllers.

Of course, they're not talking about the controller so much
as the game itself. And really, kids these days are smart
enough to enjoy complex games and the industry should pat
itself on the back for that one. I still believe video
games help the child development process, so long as they're
playing the right games.

I hope we get to see The Lizard soon.

Spidey should get the black suit in the middle of three.
Then you should see Eddie Brock all Venom'd up at the end.
Then, in four, it should start with Venom and then bring on
Maximum Carnage!

And somewhere in there, we should see The Black Cat.

42. Superman May 16, 2004, 13:26 Hyatus
 
Well, over 40 posts and not one mention of Supers.
I guess that's a bit telling of his popularity these days.
Personally, I'd like to see them just kill off the guy for
good. Is making him as dark as Batman supposed to help?
Seriously, DC can't make new superheroes these days. They
should just stick with Batman and their Vertigo line(which
is excellent).

Actually, Lorenzo Music did the voice for all of the old
Garfield stuff. He's dead now, sadly. Bone cancer, I
believe.

News Comments > Worms Forts Under Siege
8. hmm... Apr 29, 2004, 15:47 Hyatus
 
Actually, I really like Frogger 3d.

If you play Worms 3d on the PS2, the camera controls aren't
quite as frustrating. However, the maps feel just WAY too
small and games go much too fast. I mean, it's just too
easy to kill worms in it. It seems less strategical than
the 2d versions(of which I still enjoyed the original the
most).
