Yeah, I like the concept too. I wish it was a regular RTS, though. I don't care for the turn-based wargame type of design.

8. Real Life Adapts Marvel Comic's Rogue Nov 29, 2005, 10:05 Bill Borre
 
Talk about life imitating art. I guess that it is true that comic books have attained the status of art, or we're going to have to amend the saying to include that life imitates comic books as well. That tragic story of the young couple's kiss of death is just like Marvel's Rogue, but for the sexes being reversed.

News Comments > German Violent Gaming Legislation
7. Re: Games don't kill people Nov 18, 2005, 12:19 Bill Borre
 
It is kinda funny to see this legislation stemming from Germany as their game releases are so cleaned up as it is. I spent a couple of weeks at Activision playtesting the German gamecube version of True Crime 2 and you'd be amazed out how much work they put people through, going through every single texture in the game to eliminate any blood whatsoever. Even if it is just a patch of blood on the pants of a corpse, it has to be submitted to the database to be removed. Looking over at someone else's monitor, who is playing a non-German version of the game, it is a totally different playing experience.

I would think that if the original publisher, in this case Activision, is handing the title off to another publisher,that would be a pretty clear indication that they do not expect it to sell well.

Activision did not acquire the publishing rights to the MMORPG. Microsoft did.

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.

Now, THAT, would be a cool game...

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!
