15. Thanks Crytek Feb 23, 2008, 10:43 Nighthawk
I hope other game devs are reading this, because this is how it should be done.
If you screw up, admit, apologize, and we (the community) will typically be happy.
It's not really that complicated...

News Comments > Blizzard on Gold Sales & Power Leveling
22. Re: No subject Feb 22, 2008, 17:36 Nighthawk
Well, I make $50k+ a year and have absolutely NO desire to spend $500 of many things, and buying gold in a game is on the bottom of that list.
My pally is lv65 and I'll be saving up for my flier, not copping out.
Furthermore, I think anyone that buys gold SHOULD be banned. Powerlevelling I'm a little easier on, they're losing on out major parts of the game, so it's their loss anyway.

Judge, Jury, who cares, it was quick example, and with a little digging I'm sure I could find more...
People are suing for the most moronic things, and that needs to get stomped on.

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

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 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?)

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...

News Comments > New American McGee Game Unveiled
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

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

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.

Should have been charged with attempted mages kill stuff with fire, if he thought he was a ire mage, he was obviously trying to kill the other kid.

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.

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