You gotta love how it takes a million dollars to get a new Star System made. What does it really take to make a star system? Placing planets and asteroids and scripting in some missions. That does not take a million dollars.

Also, the "aquatic" zone, an indicator they're running out of fresh ideas.

bon appetit!

Those statements are not backed up by science, but just suggestive innuendo. I will go out on a limb and bet you take lots of herbal supplements, the vast majority of which have been shown to do jack squat as well.

Are there things that cost more than 2000? Basically, are they stopping people from saving virtual cash for several months to buy "really" good stuff, thus forcing them to pay for it?

Kind of a slap to P2P people.

Old CTF player before transitioning to TF and all I can say to mark the anniversary was this. I fear no one but the one with a quad & black magic. Dam still remember that sound then just going oh shit.

I'll never forget the day where this guy on CTF had the 2x damage rune and the quad damage, which multiplied to 8x. He swatted me with the lightning gun but I had the red armor, and had just run over the 200 health cube. Just enough to barely survive a quick swipe. That was on the map with the two giant faces facing each other.

It's too bad the modern Quake thing never brought back these old maps, old skins and weapons, sounds, and the spike ball grappling hook. The leap pads-and-only-leap-pads stuff just jumped the shark into no soul territory.

We don't like you having to develop that kind of talent with rocket jump and grappling hook, no sirree! Get thee gone!

No, the biggest mistake was making it a console arcade game with shitty console UI. CoH found a goo balance. I never needed more than 2 hotbars and mainly used just the one anyway.


THIS. It's a beautiful game, plays well but designed for a controller.

Yet CoH didn't limit the number of button bars you could have. I had 7 or so on my main, the bulk of which had more esoteric powers, vanity pets, monthly subscriber bonus powers, temp powers, and the like.

DCUO forces you to pick what, 6 powers and one block or something? Because that's all a console controller can handle? WTF.

That they did massively wrong. What they did right was unlockiing additional looks, per slot, just by putting a new look item on one time. Also the Watchtower and Legion of Doom are spectacular.

It's just that console-style "action MMO" fighting that kills it -- limited powers and hold-heavy combat with SQUEEZE SQUEEZE SQUEEZE trigger/click button FAST FAST FAST that killed it for me.

UT99 - woot! Still the best.


I always preferred UT 2003. Was I the only one that thought quakeworld was kinda janky when it was first released? I actually preferred the original netcode for gameplay purposes. Of course, my 300+ ping might have had something to do with it.

Quake World added a lot of prediction to it, which flopped miserably, at least on dialup, with fast-twitch action.

I was in NBI, a regular clan that vied near the top, and finally quit after a Quake World match where I had rocket jumped from a lower to higher bridge over water (under heavy assault), the kind of stuff I loved. Sudden lag, and I found myself underwater running in the corner.

The predictor, combined with bursty twitch changes, just couldn't handle it. As it was almost all Quake World by that point, screw it.

All we want is "Star Wars: Gungan Ambassador", a political strategy game where you play Jar Jar Abra... errr... Binks and do everything you can to turn chancellor Palpatine into emperor Palpatine. Meesa wanta thisa!

Hehe, I'd pay $50 for a game where the goal is to run around as Jar Jar, trying to inadvertantly be a butthole screwing things up.

Visions of the Star Trek 25th Anniversary game, with an unofficial side game of trying to figure out how to get the redshirts killed.

Shut your (blanking) face, sheep (blankers)!
You're a (blank)-(blanking), (blank)-(blanking) sheep (blanker).

I assume that will get to, if not past, the armed men dictating what is permitted, by them, to be seen by the unwashed masses.

not sure why you guys throw stones at them the first time they delay something.

Because the man in charge is notorious for promising the moon and taking forever to deliver.
Then don't support them, until they deliver something worthy for you.
I am looking forward to this game just as much as the next guy, but I don't understand this "I'd love to see this fail" mentality a lot of people have.
Sure Elite looks awesome and will be released sooner then SC obviously but that doesn't mean I want SC to fail.
The amount of detail they put into the ships and ship designs so far makes me hopeful that this will really be an epic game.
But it will take time

They have plenty of money, so no one else needs to support this, and you needen't take any risk.

I just bought the Gog version of BG II. From this article, with this new version, you get an HR graphics pack and 4 new chars, the former of which already exists as a mod which works with the Gog version?

My biggest bummer is that link is a completely unusable disaster on my phone. Slow (7s) from press to action, suggesting massive generated-code inefficiency, next page doesn't work so I can only read the first one. Other articles don't work. And my last resort (past several reloads), the Full Site button, also doesn't work.

I guess I shouldn't be using a 2 year old phone with only 20 million of them out there.

One thing EQ fans always loved about EQ 1/2 is that things were more realistic.

EQ1 had a very cartoony style at launch, before Luclin.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Sand_Giant_-_EverQuest_-_1999.jpg

The difference between old EQ and EQ Next in this complaint seems to be the difference between the Earthtone Coalition and the Forces of Bright, from the Neal Stephenson novel Reamde (note the spelling).

Old grey, steel, iron, brown dirt zones and characters vs. bright, rainbow-colored lands and characters and outfits.

Tera Online has both types of zones, the old school, and stuff that puts Oz to shame. Like if Oz had peanut butter, and crashed its car into Thomas Kinkaid, Painter of Light, with a chocolate bar. Not just colorful, but glowing berries and stuff like in Avatar floating around. The popori home city's lands are one of the 8 Wonders of the MMORPG World

Anyway, as a City of Heroes refugee, I look forward to a base builder system writ large.

Doom was a revelation. The first time I really felt immersed in a different world in gaming. On a related note, I'll never for get the first time I played Wolfenstein 3D, the first time I played a 3D shooter ever. The door opens, and a Nazi is standing right there, pistol in hand. And he shoots. I had the sound way up, and jumped out of my chair I was so shocked.


I had a friend who had a digital audio card, which was somewhat a novelty back then, and the Nazis would say something like "mein leiben" (? My life!), which apparently was widely misinterpreted as "My liver!". Beavis&Butt-head once made fun of it.

Quit playing, logged in months later as free, saw most onscreen button bars missing such that I had to pay to restore them, put on my Leia slave outfit, danced around a bit, and logged back out again.

Wuat goes on i dont even

IIRC, rather than boost unpopular classes, they were following the EverQuest management model of kicking paying customers in the balls by nerfing whatever the popular classes were, repeat ad nauseum until all paying customers hate them.

Valve, a profit driven crypto-fascist syndicate

Errr ooooooook

Fascism is strong government control with nominal private ownership and a strong nationalist streak.

Not sure how that applies to Valve, crypto or otherwise.

Well, it took long enough, but Total Annihilation is finally on Gog, too. With Sacrifice and Dungeon Keeper, they now have the three greatest RTS of all time. Got TA over the weekend, been going nuts on all three for weeks.
