Put me down as another person with a story like nin's, Blue. I worked with a woman who had the surgery done, both she and her husband had it done, and she couldn't say enough wonderful things about it and definitely recommended it to me to get rid of my glasses. But, like you Blue, I'm still wearing the glasses.

5. Re: Confirmation that the GW model Oct 29, 2005, 14:57 Bill Borre
AS beat me to it. I'd guess that GW is doing ok from the bean-counter's standpoint. Hopefully, the new Sony game will be better than GW. I like GW more than EQ2 or WOW, but I think GW's combat system is pretty weak as the game is very easy to play with other people, just click-click-click over and over, so I hope Sony's new game will have a better combat system. Also, I'd prefer a more immersive, story-telling environment. The writing isn't bad in GW, but the voice-overs arn't convincing and if Sony's new game was like a mix between GW and the excellent writing of Morrowind, I think I'd really enjoy it.

Sad to see him reduced to hawking games. I really enjoyed "Halloween" and "The Fog" when I was a kid.

The developer of Gun is Neversoft. Beenox is porting the Xbox code to the PC.

Yeah, I must be getting slow... I thought they were serious at first until I kept reading for a few minutes. Very bizarre website. The satire is understated and subtle at times. Perhaps they're British? And now for something completely different...

I wonder if these things will ever get to the point where they are all advertiser subsidized and free to everyone like television.

I'm kinda surprised Anna won. She's a pretty gal, but I definately would have placed her behind a couple of the other enterants.

22. Re: Blue get a Wrist support Aug 11, 2005, 09:27 Bill Borre
I've been working as a tester for Activision for the last five weeks. I have never had hand/wrist pain in my life, but since last week, I have. The project I'm working on pretty much necessititates the use of a gamepad for intuitive control 40 hours a week straight minus two breaks and lunch. I spoke to Volt about it, and they said they'd send me to a physician. Do your hands ever get used to the constant repetitive movements and this is just an adjustment period? Or, I'm wondering, since I'm about 20 years older than every other guy working there, am I doing serious damage to my hands/wrists and should look for other work?

Well, I just hope the poster who told me that you "would not be able to play core characters like Spider-man, but could unlock their special moves if you do their quests" was incorrect. That would be an utterly moronic move by the dev team.

This would be an AWESOME game if they combined the two genres AD&D and Kung Fu Action!

I think this is an interesting idea, but the pricing would have to come waaaaaaaaay down for me to have any inclination.

18. Re: No subject Jun 18, 2005, 09:20 Bill Borre
I cannot believe that Marvel or DC would do an online game where you could not be Superman or Wolverine. Probably how they are going to deal with the "500 Spidermans" problem will be a variant on the "instanced dungeon" where any given server may have 500 Wolverines, but only 1 will be seen by you and your teammates. If the devs chose this solution obviously every player in your team would need to be assigned a different character. The devs could deal with the "1000s of characters" problem by following the example set by UT2K4 and releasing a plugin for the Maya PLE. Sony could even charge for user created meshes that get downloaded from Station Exchange, making hosting user created content pay for itself, and possibly compensate the creators some as well. I'm sure that there are many people who would pay reasonable fees to assemble a collection of their favorite characters for online play.

9. Re: Would be good... Jun 16, 2005, 20:49 Bill Borre
"for 500 bucks you get to play as Neo for one day and kill anyone you want"

THAT is an interesting idea. Combine the eBay auction model with a game as integrated into the gameplay design structure. It may be a way to generate consumer-created game content that pays for itself. Probably five or fifty bucks would be more reasonable but if you're the one who suggests the gameplay mechanic that gets bid on, maybe you could get a cut of what is actually selected to appear in the game, and the game would actually pay you to play. So people who suggested the most interesting gamplay mechanics would essentially be getting their subscriptions for free and maybe even making some money.

This guy should be designing games, not suing them. "Columbine to the factor of 10" Coming Fall 2005. Sorta like Dungeon Keeper, although your dungeon is replaced by a school yard and it's your job to kill as many innocent students as possible before the level ends.

There will NEVER be great stories in games for the simple reason that it is not possible to know what the player will do in an interactive environment. Stories in games will always be inferior to the great stories and characterization you can find in a book.
