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.

The Warhammer 40k license has fallen into bad hands.

I fear this is what will happen to the Star Wars game/universe license as well.

Ewok Tower Defense 40,000k.

Someone pays a ton for SW license, the rest is crap by committee, where sweet talking businessmen gain the helm from the deep pockets, rather than creative innovators.

Star Wars builds that stunning game engine with dynamic destructible environments and an AI engine with motivations, such as falling characters strive to grab things, made easier no doubt by the design allowing stress and dynamic breaking.

Meanwhile another company pays $100 million to so a Star Wars MMORPG, and just throws the thinnest, the very thinnest, cosmetic wrapper around World of Warcraft gameplay and character building, right down to the tripartite skill tree specialization families and vastly overpriced "horses", which pathetically double your run speed.

Duh, just use Splenda.

Cooking with Splenda is horrible. It makes the food taste like it was created by Dow.

I would like to see a double-blind study. For my money, it is the best tasting fake sweetener, and is supposed to be stable through cooking temperatures.

"Olestra gives you cramps" until someone did this study and found Olestra chips had a slightly lower reporting of cramps than normal chips. Nevermind, the damage was done. No 1/3 calorie chips for you!

I remember thinking, "$25, no way!". And this is why I still work for The Man.

For the record, $700? No way! Not gonna do it.

I don't think they're saying it needs a powerful computer to run -- that's a stupid management decision if so.

You want to run on not just average but below average, but with a design that scales up graphics accordingly, so the high-end people are drooling all over it online.

No gibs, not Quake.

Also, jump pads instead of (spike) grappling hook, not Quake.

Quake II+ stylings, not Quake. It lost all its soul.

These are the same idiots that said a console controller is the only and best way to play an FPS.

They're nothing but trollbait.

One developer kept PC and console players from mixing on the same server -- not for technical reasons, but because PC players destroyed the console players.

Those clumsy console controllers are just hideous compared to keyboard and mouse. Learned that the hard way with Max Payne way back when. Had both versions, no comparison.

Playing twitch games on a console is like assembling a ship in a bottle using long, thin tools.

Why would a Democrat, who is ostensibly "for the little guy", oppose patent reform, and Republicans, "for big business and powerful interests ripping people off" be in support of reform?

One group gets massive donations from lawyers who do suing. Apparently the more things that can be violated, the more target-rich their environment for profits is.

Determing which party this is is left as an exercise for the reader.

We really need a new ST series. Preferably a continuation of the established franchise where maybe some stars can make a comback/cameo appearances.

Rumors have been floating ever since the first [url=][/url]Abrams movie that they're working on a TV show set after Voyager. But sadly, they remain rumors for now.


It's funny, when I saw the headline, I thought "OMG, they're doing a Star Trek tv season online???" I'd totally forgotten about the shitty MMO.

Hehe I thought the same thing, except I thought it was some Season 8 of that semi-pro fan series done by that guy who made that awesome duplicate TOS bridge in his basement.

DOH it's the button-masher game.

Why would they not take the bags? What do they do with one bag that they couldn't do with multiples? Or is it not at all about recycling, and just about getting you into the store?

Well, relying on your concern for recycling to get you to like them more is obviously a business method, but in this case I'll bet it's more that they can't reuse them, being food-oriented. It's not practical or perhaps even legal?

Re-filling your bag for you at a discount, or normal price + free coffee would be a better way, but even then that relies on opening a barrel, and you know how snooty coffee lovers insanely drool over adore their hermetically-sealed coffee beans, kept from air until seconds before grinding and brewing...!
