hey Blue,

I think I have asked this before but never got an official repsonse from El Presidente himself.

Is there anyway that you can post links to the developer's website when announcing a new demo or game?


For instance do a "A demo for <HTML LINK TO DEV>Silent Hill 3</HTML LINK TO DEV> is now available from ..."

(This is a request from us laaazy phucks (and the 1handed internet surfers like fredster) who are too lazy to do a google search ourselves.)

a lot of Hoopla... just announce the damn game and then release it.

edit: here is the website of the company: http://www.flagshipstudios.com

here is the first piece of concept art:
http://www.flagshipstudios.com/concept.htm

based on their first interview, it doesn't sound like this is Diablo 3, or any Diablo "ripoff/genre" style of game...

a Steam update will automatically install Half Life 2 the next time Steam is used thanks the the hacking talents of ANON. You will be able to see Half Life 2 and its astouding AI. Yes, even if you kill that bad buy before he kicks the door open, the door still gets kicked open! The AI reacts just like real humans do! Way to go Gabe! Have another phucking Big Mac.

It is interesting that if you create a quality game with good gameplay and don't release proper tools until 2 years later that modders still have the motivation to create great mods. In contrast, if you release a crap game and the mod tools are on the retail CD, modders still are not interested in creating mods.

It is even more interesting that when you pump out a copy-cat game every year, release the mod tools on the retail CD AND hold contests that PAYS modders to create mods, you *still* don't get the quality mods that the few quality games are providing.

The consumers are not stupid. The market is fickle. Yet game developers still release copycat games with poor gameplay.

When will they learn?

speaking of walking the dogs, ever think that dog poop is biodegradable, but when you wrap it in a plastic bag it isn't?

so what if someone sold biodegradable dog poop bags, that way it is all compost/recyclable?

is this already being done? does anyone know?


damn: a quick google search shows it is being doneup the yingyang..

AcidDrone,

are you referring to your 5th digit (little finger) and the 4th digit (ring finger) on the dorsal side (the opposite side of your palm, aka the back of your hand)?

If so that is the nerve distribution of the ulnar nerve:

http://www.carpaltunnels.com/ctsimages/dorsalulnar.jpg

and that is likely due to 1) cubital tunnel syndrome (at the elbow (funny bone area) or 2) wrist compression of the ulnar nerve

If it's any consellation, I get that too since I lean my wrist on the ulnar side (the side of my baby finger) when I use the mouse... so I stopped leaning on it..

AcidDrone,

if the numbness is in your thumb, index and long fingers (on the palmar side) then that is the region of sensation supplied by the median nerve which passes through a boney tunnel surrounded (mostly) by carpal bones and a ligament. Hence, it is known as carpal tunnel syndrome.


here is a link of the areas of numbness illustrated by the illustrious Dr. Frank Netter:
http://www.idiom.com/~drjohn/ctsensory.gif

Classically, the individual feels numbness, pain, pins and needles during the nighttime in the above mentioned area of distribution. Although you can still have CTS and not be bothered by it at night. These symptoms are due to compression of the median nerve when flexing the wrist chronically. So, there is something you are doing on a regular basis that is putting your hands in this position (typing on a keyboard, maybe)? Assuming you have CTS, whatever it is that is aggravating it, stop doing it.

The second step of treatment is wearing a wrist splint that prevents you from flexing the wrist. Physiotherapists can also work with you, but I only recommend this is the Physio is a hottie.

The third and final stage of treatment is surgery, which is a 3-5 minute simple procedure where the hand surgeon makes a little slit along the palmar side of your wrist and then incises the transverse carpal ligament which relieves the pressure. You wouldn't want to know how much he gets paid for that, either.

If you want a diagnosis, your family doctor can send you for an EMG where electrodes are placed in the muscles supplied by the median nerve. This is the gold standard method of testing for CTS.


As you can tell I am pretty bored.. I have been procrastinating all day when I should be typing up my MBA assignment.. and it is about a video game company in 1994 (Nintendo vs Sega console developer) of all things! You'd think I would enjoy it!!

Developers should take note. This is how you make games. No insane hype, just release it when it's done, bug free.

I couldn't agree more.
