3. Re: 79 percent of adults believe web access is a 'fundamental right' Mar 9, 2010, 20:01 L0cky
 
LOL @ people who consider internet access a "right"

It does seem silly at first from a technology and service point of view, but if you were to reframe the question to 'would it be oppressive for a government to purposefully prevent it's people from accessing the world wide web and it's information?' then it gains a little context

News Comments > Escape from Enemy Mountain DOOM 3 Mod
7. Re: Escape from Enemy Mountain DOOM 3 Mod Feb 28, 2010, 12:56 L0cky
 
What a strangely hilarious conversation.

"Escape from Enemy Mountain takes place in a hellish outpost. You have been captured and locked in the prison cells inside Enemy Mountain, and you must escape to the main governmental headquarters, from which you can take a spaceship back to civilisation."

The grammar is fine regardless of which side of the continent you're on. The spelling of 'civilisation' is also fine; it's called 'English' and was around long before 'US English' nerfed it.

News Comments > Developer Pirates Its Own Game
17. Re: Developer Pirates Its Own Game Nov 7, 2009, 11:07 L0cky
 
Beware, this post contains fact checking!

So what they really are saying is that they had such little faith in their game they gave it away.

The game has been topping the xbla charts for months now. It's also got some pretty good reviews (http://www.metacritic.com/games/platforms/pc/trials2?q=trials%202)

Big deal! I'd like to see this developer pirate their own game crippled with DRM.

Not sure what you mean. It doesn't have DRM.

I still think they should do a demo (if they haven't), because it targets a differant segment of people (although there's certainly overlap).

They do have a demo: http://www.redlynxtrials.com/MediaDownloads.action

It's a testament to id that when they sell out, the comments threads on it are talking about something else.

And if we run out of bullets, they gonna wish we hadn't

Sold

I never played the first one; however I always got the idea that they were experimenting with the concept. Now that it's popular they want to do it properly, hence the quick sequel.

Am I wrong?

Why is it news that they're DRM free? They always have been.

First or second patches even removed the need for a cd in the drive.

A Zero-G FPS will simply suck. Though a lot of people like that sort of thing, such as the lo-grav mutator for UT, I can't stand it.

The low grav asteroid map on Unreal 2 completely bombed.

It may be different if the players have a lot of air control and can get around fairly quickly though.

Sorry to be a pedant but the difference between copying and stealing is not an argument of semantics.

If someone states that something is 'very big' and someone argues that it's not, it is in fact 'very large' then they are arguing semantics.

If someone states that something is 'black' and someone argues that it's not, it is in fact 'white' then they are arguing a difference of facts, not semantics.

By the same reasoning, if someone states that something is 'stealing' and someone argues that it's not, it is in fact 'copying' then they are arguing a difference of facts, and therefore not arguing semantics.

Try actually explaining your reasoning why it is stealing and not simply copying.

Let's look at Mr. Verbinski extensive portfolio of strong narrative films:
Only he didn't write a single one of those movies.

This is coming from a guy that spent a butt-load of money to receive a digital Oscar.
Aren't you thinking of Michael Bay?

If so, that was a story on the Onion:

Yep, if iD were really all that then PC gaming would have ended with Commander Keen as the only game worth playing.

iD needs more perfection!

I bought ut2003 and 2004 only to realize that there were never more than 10 players online. So basically the same happened again?

Theres 3,600 ut2004 players online at the moment, I remember seeing about 12,000 in the past. This is nowhere near the 80,000+ I remember seeing for UT though.

How many for UT3? 269

So yeah, hardly anyone playing it, but not really history repeating itself.

They show a shot of it embedded in a browser. I'm sure they already confirmed this wasn't what it was.

You're right, I don't see why many people will be interested, but then it won't cost id anything to hand over Quake3 to IGA and see what they can do with it.

News Comments > Epic on MS Buyout Rumors: Only One Billion?
25. Re: No subject Feb 19, 2008, 15:16 L0cky
 
I think part of the problem is that since Epic grew over a certain threshold (from the UE licensing) all of the original developers and games designers are now CEO's and management.

Where making FPS games for PC was a passion is no longer relevant as they're not the ones doing the work any more (except maybe Tim?).

Happens to any small company that grows. The original guys aren't just going to hand over the running of the company to strangers; and it ends up that that's all they do - they become seperated from the passion that got them started in the first place, and things like licensing and money become the main consideration of the day.
