News Comments > Interplay Seeks Legal Fees from Bethesda

That's some small change. Did Interplay not actually hire a lawyer?  
Huh? I'm sorry, I was thinking about cake.

I like this bit...
But now, as he watches the scene in super slow-motion, “it is clear that O’Rourke and Agarn already had arrows in their hats in the first frame. Mr. Tucker and Mr. Storch simply jerked their heads backward to create the illusion that the arrows had just struck. Boy do I feel stupid.”

When I read that, I think "I can't believe these assholes didn't let someone shoot arrows at their heads for an authentic scene! Where's their integrity?"

edit: Ok wow, finished the article and I'm just stunned. It's like this guy is shocked that modern techniques weren't used decades ago.

I think if DNF ever came out it'd be pirated like mad because who would have any faith that 12 years of fucking around and pissing away money would produce a good game? If it did come out and there was no demo, how would those people find out otherwise? I wouldn't pirate it myself but I gave up on it being worthwhile years ago. Can you remember where you were when DNF was announced? I was in middle school. I think this is definitely just 3DRealms blowing their horn loudly in an effort to get the courts to not look closely at their business records.

Oh, I'm not disputing that Torchlight was worth every penny I paid. I'm just a little peeved that I paid twice as many pennies when I could have not.

God damn, I just got Torchlight the other day for $10 from Steam. That's not cool, but at least I'm only getting screwed out of $5 and not $25 or some shit.

"Ultima? Wing Commander? Crusader? What are those?" I'm going to go out on a limb here and say the PC was not even considered when writing this article.

You guys know Wesp is not your usual game nerd, right?

My German's a lot rusty but doesn't that say he's a chemist? He must really love programming if he never wanted to ruin the love by making it a job.

They must like it a lot. Developers that get paid to make patches don't do it this well.

Perhaps it's an issue of neutrality, for example an advertiser might only agree to give them money if the article about them made them sound better or something.

That's another good point, forgot about that hehe. Kind of makes having any level cap at all rather moot.

Don't know what good a level 15 cap would do. Not sure you can actually get past level 7 in the tutorial zone.

Not to mention this mysterious control won't extend beyond our borders, but unfortunately the internet does. And yeah, if their plan to take control is to do it one farmhouse at a time, that doesn't sound like a great plan. Actually, one farmhouse at a time is kind of worrying. Where are all the crop circles and cow abductions? Farms. Either the government is using this as a pretense to gather surveillance on the aliens, or they're in league with them...

Of course they're gonna drag their feet. Telcos and cable companies can't make money hand over fist if they just turn around and spend it all on their infrastructure. Look at AT&T now and their trouble with the iPhone. Rather than spend all that big iPhone money on upgrading their infrastructure, they'd rather talk about changing to tiered pricing in an effort to milk more money out of them for the same setup. What's more likely to happen is people will leave AT&T even if it means giving up their iPhones but that will solve AT&T's infrastructure problems too.

Don't get too excited - by all accounts, even playing leisurely you'd only use it for 2 hours before you got a better ship. The humor in the preorder bonuses is that Best Buy's bonus pets are the only bonus you'd be guaranteed to still be using after the 2 hour mark, even if rarely. They say the Amazon Borg officer will remain useful throughout the entire game but I doubt it unless they plan on making that a microtransaction later.

To each his own. We've all taken the hype train right to the crash, or we wouldn't know why we'd never do that again. Besides, disappointed hope that costs $80 is a lot cheaper than lots of other kinds of disappointment.

Just 60,000? That's some weak bullshit. You can bet your ass if/when one drone gets hijacked and attacks a US installation or convoy one day, the military will have them all updated in a week just to try to cover it up.
