News Comments > Molyneux: PC Gaming "Huge Tragedy"
26. Re: Sales vs Innovation Feb 20, 2008, 17:03 Nighthawk
 
I'm not sure I'm with you on this...
Fable is great because of it's openness, and, if not for the controls, I would have played through black and white.

News Comments > PC Gaming Alliance Formed
52. Microsoft??? Feb 20, 2008, 17:01 Nighthawk
 
Microsoft doesn't deserve to be in this "alliance"..he's a major contributor to the downfall of the PC gaming industry.
Intel is almost just as guilty, they don't care about gaming, they're just padding their pocket with our money while they pay the devs to jack the system requirements.
If they wanted to help the industry, they would start listening to gamers...

I threw up a little as this thought hit me, EA, for all their downfalls, knows a good game...and should be involved.
/gonna throw up now

22. Sales vs Innovation Feb 20, 2008, 16:50 Nighthawk
 
I don't know how you guys can bash all his game...a quick Wiki search and I found a number of games that were intelligent, maybe not popular, but popular doesn't equal intelligent...
Populous, a great idea, not sure if it was 100% original, but fairly smart
Syndicate, fun game, loved it, not really innovative, it's basicly an RTS.
Black and White, a learning AI, clunky controls, but innovative
Fable, which I just finished playing AGAIN on my laptop, gave you the freedom to do anything, good, bad, hell you could buy a house in town, seduce a woman, sleep with her, kill her husband, or seduce and sleep with him too.
Can't comment on "the movies" though...never tried it.
So, give the guy some credit, he deserves it.

/buying spore (different guy, but that's innovation)
//waiting for Fable 2
/// oh yeah, dungeon keeper was fun too

Again, the blues forum has already answered the question I had in my head...is this game worthy to get.
I think I'll pass, thanks troops.

4. So.... Feb 20, 2008, 16:38 Nighthawk
 
...are they gonna settle??

As for a loser pays system, that's a good idea to a degree, but if the it's dismissed due to a technicality, it would be unfair too...you would almost need a 2nd trial/judgement to see if it qualifies.

I'm more a believer that the judge should be able to dismiss something (and fine the plaintiff) on a common sense clause, like the McDonalds coffee incident (suing because she didn't know the coffee was hot?)

7. Worthy? Feb 13, 2008, 15:07 Nighthawk
 
I was going to come in here and ask if the game is worth buying (blues forum has becoming the best "review" place I've found), and I already got my answer, thanks troops

News Comments > Spore Dated
10. Ea, Spore, and -messing- it all up Feb 12, 2008, 14:26 Nighthawk
 
I swore I wouldn't buy EA anymore, because them forcing stuff out the door and having a patch waiting on delivery date, but I've got to get them credit, they've got some great titles behind them.
I';m looking forward to spore, and despite my better judgement, I'll probably get it...
My vote, it's out Sept 7, and there will be a patch waiting...

14. Re: No subject Feb 4, 2008, 17:02 Nighthawk
 
How about this, can anyone list ANY games developed in China, rather than assuming anything there is crap?

That's like saying has there been any BAD games ever developed in Croatia.
To make the comparison, you need details, other than Serious Sam, I don't know anything else producted there, as for China, we'll discount anything with the Nintendo brand, just to start with a clean slate.

News Comments > Hellgate London Lifetime Subscription Deadline
29. Lifetime subscription Jan 22, 2008, 08:14 Nighthawk
 
I had a lifetime subscription to Gamespy 3D...
Apparantly I'm dead now, because my lifetime scription is worthless.
Not that I didn't get my money's worth, but they dropped 3D for gamespy Arcade, and offered me a free year.
They were essentially the same program, but a different name invalidates the "lifetime" part.

/me spits on gamespy

News Comments > Free Battlefield Game Planned
17. EA Jan 21, 2008, 12:19 Nighthawk
 
Will it support widescreen? Or is EA/DICE still gonna screw us?
Maybe it'll take a few patches to become playable...
I'm glad EA is shifting their business model, I've been screwed enough by them as it is, at least now I won't be charged for it...directly

7. Kukuman is right Jan 14, 2008, 17:25 Nighthawk
 
I'm not trolling, but you're not going to see the next world of warcraft come from an open source project.
HOWEVER, I downloaded a previous version of this, and it was fun, brought me back to the old X-Com days.

It just gives more weight to the "murder simulator" mentality of the ignorant / stupid.

1. Fire Mage? Dec 23, 2007, 21:05 Nighthawk
 
Should have been charged with attempted homicide...fire mages kill stuff with fire, if he thought he was a ire mage, he was obviously trying to kill the other kid.
Cut and Dry...
People wanna start blaming stuff on video games, charge them like it....

14. Patch Troubles? Dec 4, 2007, 12:08 Nighthawk
 
Has anyone else had trouble with the patch? I just installed it, in a non default directory (I've got a seperate games folder) and he was giving me a "can't find the file" error, multiple times, it did go through the process, but this is troubling.

30. Re: what is the big deal? Dec 3, 2007, 13:40 Nighthawk
 
What is wrong with military recruitment ads on a gaming website.
If the US is anything like Canada, you can be...18? Maybe even 16 (not quite sure) to enlist.
It's a career, and most gamers are going to be in that target age group anyway.
Hell, I'm 31 and a gamer, and military (Canadian Air Force).
I don't see the problem.

--Batman--
Yeah, but portal I don't consider as much a game as I do a tech trial for Ep3

26. Re: The Escapist - Bad Example Dec 3, 2007, 12:45 Nighthawk
 
Shown it's colours?? Some of the recent games I've seen are showing ending credits after 10h.
I'm with the other guys, I wanna know about a game, I come here, read the comments, both educated, and half-witted, and figure it out from there.
Hell, if I'm really curious, I'll ask...
Hellgate was a perfect example, I almost picked it up

Well if I was a beta tester, and reading what I read here, I wouldn't be paying for it either.

Is there anyone here that actually paid to pick this game up? I feel bad for you guys..
All the other issues aside, is it even a decent game in terms of gameplay/visuals/sound ?
