D3D works on a single platform. I'm glad that it worked out for you, but it's not an option on many projects.

OS X itself (not the thing that runs on the iPad/iPods/iPhone) is POSIX compliant. Up until recently it had very good OpenGL support as well (they're a couple major revisions behind now, unfortunately).

That's a great environment for a computer engineer to work in, undeniably better than most console. Many developers will prefer that kind of environment to Windows..

It's more semantics than anything else, but 4 or 5 squads isn't really STRATEGY, is it? It's tactics.

I disagree completely. The most strategic, and by such a measure that I have a hard time using strategy to describe any other game, game in history is Myth/Myth 2.

This was a game where unit numbers ranged from ~3 to ~500, with the strategy found at the low end (especially in terms of units per player).

The act of being able to replace a unit has an incalcably negative impact on strategy. Most games are reduced to build quickly and after that rock papers scissors.

+1 for card games with old people.

Even tried to teach my parents Race for the Galaxy.

Good luck in the new year, and happy holidays blues newsers.

28. Quasi sober DRM ramblings begin NOW: Oct 25, 2008, 05:30 Propagandhi
 
DRM is a total waste of time. Mandated by bosses that don't understand how simple an executing program is. FETCH DECODE EXECUTE!

Seriously though, DRM will never work... even with hardware support it's a long shot.

14. Broken Economic Outlook Sep 28, 2008, 02:16 Propagandhi
 
Banning reselling of games is such a broken way of approaching a market. A game company that doesn't recognize that you can only sell as many games as there are people who want the game at a single point in time is too stupid to participate in a capitalist market.

Can't use DirectX on the Wii, PS2, PS3, PSP, or OSX. A company which integrates direct x anywhere other than the periphery of its codebase is fuckin itself..

I play at 1024xsomethingorother and could care less about the "lowness."

If I spend time noticing jaggy edges the game sucks, and I go back to a classic (like Myth 2 )

Boy, that sure wasn't the case here in the Northwest. I think this last week was the only extended decent stretch of weather we've had since last fall. It's beautiful today though and I'm off early from work - think I'll take a nap.

You've spoken too soon, at least here in Van it's clouded up again...

I aws interested in the story - obviously the game isn't for me, and I don't know why the IP holders went this route... but it's still interesting to see.

Gothic 4 looks cool, but the art has never been an issue with me. Here's hoping they have enough time to get the controls and gameplay up to the same level as the visuals..

...but that dosn't really matter anymore...

The Dollars may be at parity in the money markets, but there's still a huge price disparity between Canadia and Ameristan. You can buy online, true, but if it's shipped via UPS you're gonna get hosed on the duties
