News Comments > PC Mass Effect May 6
50. Derek Feb 27, 2008, 07:02 Nighthawk
 
Thanks for the update Derek, glad to see there's actually important people reading stuff in the forums, refeshes my hope in the industry.

I'll likely pick this up, and I hope it's not just a port to PC.
I won't bash bioware, but I was a little disappointed for a leading PC game dev to develop Mass Effect for 360 only, and while I'm still disappointed, I'm glad to see we're still being thought about, but I imagine it's EA calling the shots now anyway.

News Comments > Chris Taylor on PC Gaming
18. Decent Titles? Feb 27, 2008, 06:43 Nighthawk
 
Recent favorite titles for me.
Half Life...I'm gonna say all of orange box just to cover it.
Bioshock
Call of Duty 4

Looking forward to a few more, having the potential of being great
Fallout 3, if they can keep the feeling of the original
Fable 2, see my previous rant
Spore
Starcraft 2

Give credit to Chris Taylor, I didn't like dungeon siege either, but that's not the only game to his credit.
Total Annihilation still is one of my favorite RTS games for a bunch of reasons, and Supreme Commander is a good follow up to it.

As for world of warcraft bilbo...10million people seem to disagree.

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

5. I love blues...just for this Feb 20, 2008, 16:39 Nighthawk
 
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...

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

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.

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....
