News Comments > UFO: Aftershock Demo
27. Re: Sweet Oct 14, 2005, 22:41 UttiniDaKilrJawa
 
Just got from round 2 of Aftershockiness.

After setting up the pauses and the rotation keys I will admit the game is quite a bit less craptastic.

Most of my gripes of the game are mere nitpickiness now.

Not crazy about the way the Soldiers group together when you move them, even when you space them apart first.

Also, had a weird instance ....got 3 soldiers killed and one soldier got incapped but not killed. So I aborted the mission. In the end game stats it only showed that I had killed one soldier , the one that was abandoned. Thought that was kind of odd.

Might have to give this a shot after all.

Also, anyone know the name of that other UFO game being made by the X-Com fans?

@UttiniDaKilrJawa: You hold down the middle mouse button to rotate the camera as you wish. You can decide exactly what events will make the game pause in the tactical options panel. You can choose which level to see with the arrows at the top of the interface (there are four lines over each other indication the "level"). Hope that helps
Hmmm I'll have to give that a shot Slaughter...hopefully this will make a less craptastic experience.

Also, Kudos to whoever posted that XCom was on File Planet..just dl'd and got my first squad wiped out:)

Oh happy days!!!

I can sum this up in one word.

Crap.

This pause everytime someone finishes an action is just maddening. It's like your watching a movie that someone hits the pause at random intervals.

Full 3d graphics are pretty though. Too bad the camera control is how shall I say it ...crap. It is way too touchy plus I wasn't crazy about how I couldn't filter out higher elevations like X-Com ( becomes an issue when your in a building or under bridge). Didn't really notice much of the AI seeing as how I was constantly being paused. Also, with the camera view I disliked the option for rotating the map around. It is very frustrating to be able to see a tactical situation from only one angle.

Between the locked in camera view, chop chop pause combat, and lack of elevation visibility filters I found this game almost impossible to plan AND enjoy.

Graphics are nice, interface looks good and logical, just the play sucks.

40. Re: A bit deeper Oct 7, 2005, 23:05 UttiniDaKilrJawa
 
One other point.

If it is illegal to sell mature rated video games to a minor, then it should also be illegal for a parent to expose their child to these games?

Shouldn't it be considered as psychological child abuse or treated the same way as parents buying alcohol to minors would be?

If we want to hold one select group of the populace accountable with bad legislation shouldn't all members of the populace be subject to the same rules for the sake of fairness.

News Comments > California Game Bill Signed
39. Re: A bit deeper Oct 7, 2005, 23:01 UttiniDaKilrJawa
 
I'm not sure I really follow what's big issue with this. You buy a rated "R" movie you (technically) should be carded if you don't look old enough. Then again, limiting my 12 year old niece's ability to buy Grand Theft Auto SA is considered blasphemous apparently.

The big issue is this:

Game retailers can now be fined 1000 dollars for each time that they sell a game to a minor, regardless of it being intentional or not. Yet all other purveyors of mature media ( movies, CD's,etc ) could sell their works to minors and never be subject to ANY legal action. If one type of mature media is to be regulated then they ALL need to be regulated.

Yet, people say 'games are more interactive, they take up 20-40 hrs of time and can corrupt the minds of the young with the longer play times than a regular movie!!'. Any DVD/video tape /CD can be replayed over and over again. Therefore ANY mature media can create 20-infinity hours of 'harmful' viewing/'corruption'.

Also, the point of this bill is not to safeguard the youth of California/America. It is not to censor out 'harmful material from impressionable minds. The point of this bill is to make an easy grandstand effort to appeal to the 'morally correct' voter so they will all come vote for the politicians.

This is just starting to get weird.

Why is it that almost once a month we hear of some guy from the Oriental/Asian countries dying after playing video games for an extended period of time.

Yet , in just about every other part of the world you NEVER hear about this kind of thing happening? Still, in all the other countries we have people playing just as hard as the poor unfortunate dead Asian/Oriental(s).

Kinda makes ya wonder.

I don't think the guy got in all the trouble he did because he modded the XBoxes.

He got in all the trouble he did because he loaded the modded Xboxes with pirated Xbox games.

Thats sad, but I don't worry about that and neither should you.

Give it another 10 years and the Constitution is going to be deemed Unconstitutional as well :P.

Now if only parents would treat the Mature rating like politicians do.

Then it might work.

2. Re: No subject Sep 8, 2005, 12:21 UttiniDaKilrJawa
 
I like the sounds of the preorder version too.

What I don't like is the way the release was bumped up.

Given Take-Two's recent financial woes, I would be almost willing to assume that they shaved 2 months of bug hunt time to shove it out the door for instant cash.

I'll have to wait for some post launch reviews before I purchase.

Don't ya miss the old days of movie making.

Writers/Producers create an original story and then try to make a movie about it.

Now it seems its all rehash,sequelitis, remake, and conversion from video games.

60. Doggy Tactics Sep 7, 2005, 00:30 UttiniDaKilrJawa
 
Can't remember where I heard/read this at , might not even be true.

But anywho, I recall coming across a peace of information for controlling dogs by grabbing the extra skin across the back of their neck and pulling up HARD. From what I remember this will get most dogs to stop doing whatever they are doing.

The reason as to why this works was explained that most doggy mom's carry the pups around by the back of the neck. Hence when they feel that pressure they think 'mom!' and knock it off.

For whatever its worth.

See it is true.

If you lock 100 monkeys in a room with 100 computers , 100 consoles, and 100 copies of a game you too can get a game rated the good ol ESRB way.
