The whole Challenge Weekend thing is just a lame attempt to distract you from the well-deserved shoeing that EA/Bioware are copping -

Well there isn't a Ballmer and Jobs foundation is there?
I guess it's up to Bill and Melinda to save the Chinese slaves.

I think it is a great idea!
If Quake I and Quake II had had such hours of gameplay-type reporting, we would never have had Quake III inflicted upon us.

News Comments > Layoffs at id Software

Jerryk said: "What? Quake 3 was more popular than Q2 and its engine was used in more games. The competitive multiplayer community generally agrees that Q2 was the worst Quake. People still play Q3/QL today."

That sums up the trap Id fell into. The biggest market segment for Q2 was the single player but the multiplayer community gets more notice taken of it's opinion due to it's intrinsically voluble group voice.
I had no use whatsoever for the story-less Q3 but us loner single-player types aren't ones to speak up by our very nature and Id fell for the adulation expressed by the multiplayer throng.
People do still play Q2 and even Q1 and Doom I and II on newer engines (and Unreal I and II too), we just don't shout it from the roof-tops.

1. Re: The First 4TB Hard Drive Dec 10, 2011, 03:02 UnderLord
 
"The (4TB) drive is priced at 26,800 Yen, which translates to $345. For comparison, the 2TB Deskstar 5K costs 19,780 Yen ($254), so the price per GB is very close."
No, $508 for 4TB would be very close, what the hell are they smoking?

1. Re: XQD cards Dec 9, 2011, 01:14 UnderLord
 
CF cards may have a connector similar to PCMCIA cards but they are primarily based on the Parallel ATA drive connector, which is why they are IDE-compatible with a trivial adaptor.
Also, what a lousy time to invent yet another FLASH drive form-factor just as new technologies are boosting the capacity and performance of existing formats.

And Yes, I understand Notch is fighting a principle, but dammit man, if you want to piss money down a well, why not do something constructive with it and donate it to a charitable cause instead? You know, like Leukemia research?
Court cases set precedents. If a person/entity wants to put their money into something that may change laws and rules for the better then that is their choice and a worthy expenditure. Not all human betterment comes from medical research or feeding a starving child. The 'principle' is that we'll all be better off if a company can't litigate over nebulous words/terms.

I think you missed my point.

That was venomhed's point, got your alt's mixed up?

Google are in SO much trouble, scanning the Dead Sea Scrolls without asking Bethesda's permission ti use the name.

I hope the judge gives Mojang costs and Bethesda a thorough reaming!
