News Comments > The Phantom Menace?
21. Re: VC is peanuts, this is a joke. Jul 10, 2003, 23:25 TangledThorns
 
You should stop thinking about how things have been done in the past and start thinking about how things will be done in the future.

I think the Phantom is exactly what the computer games industry needs. All recently made consoles are exactly the same as each other. This is something to get excited about at last.
Start thinking globally not locally!!

OMG, this person sounds like one of my company's ditsy PR reps. Nice try, we're on to you. In fact, I think I should send the FTC a healthy email about these guys. What they're trying to do infeasible and looks like a total rip-off to their investors.


edit: I clicked on the jackass's name and look, he/she just joined today and has 4 posts in the Infinium (crap) chat. Again, nice try. Hope you guys like your jail cell.

I'm sorry guys but I really have no faith that this machine will ever see light of day. I do see it as a scam that the CEO is try to milk money from investors who don't know what they are doing. If this was being built by a large well known company like Pioneer or even Apple then I might believe it. Otherwise I think the FTC should investigate this company soon.


My GrandDaddy had an old saying.

'When you owe the bank a million dollars, you're screwed.'

'But if you owe the bank $50 million dollars, the bank is screwed.'

i just picked up a copy of T1 the movie and I think i'm going to watch it tonight aaah memories

The first T1 is such an 80s film with its setting, music and fashions. Everybody dancing to pop music in the Tech Noir. Sarah Connor's big haired roommate. The synth chase music. Man, its like The Valley Girl meets hard-core sci-fi. Good thing there were no break dancing scenes.

Anyone remember the orginal Terminator game for the PC? You got to run around LA freely and could steal cars and drive them around.

I remember that game, it was from Bethesda Softworks and I could barely run it on my Dad's old ass 286 Epson Equity 2. I'm not even sure it was a 286 but I wanted to play it so badly. I tried and tried to make it work but it would constantly crash Was anybody here ever able to get it to work?

13. Re: NERF or Nothing! Jun 30, 2003, 20:21 TangledThorns
 
I was perfectly clear. I'm just saying the game has lost almost all strategy. Just build a mass army of one unit and it can be anything really but lately its been air units. Ugh, not very fun. Also, I bounce between levels 10-15 on 2v2. Can't always get good allies and I hate to coach but I love 2v2 games since they last longer. You play a 1v1 and own the other guy and he quits early. Not very fun IMO.

Ok, I was hoping other WC3 players (note beta) would respond but here goes. Before, you couldn't really win a game with one unit, it took a combo with heroes normally. So now there is no real strategy, just build a bunch of certain units and rush. The patch is a prelude to Frozen Throne and thats why I may not buy it. Cool features but ruined strategies.

I do play and win but I don't like how I win. I prefer combos over mass units of one type. Oh well, Homeworld 2 coming soon. Yay!

LOL, you should think before you type. You were a tester so obviously you adjusted into the patch as the changes were slowly moving on. Imagine if it all were sudden? Think next time please.

Um, idiot? Most of the changes were cosmetic/functional rather than balance related. The game is relatively balanced (it is my opinion that humans are too strong by a bit) right now.


Um, n00b? You just verified what I wrote. Play some more, you'll find it more out of whack.

WTFG Blizzard! You nerfed the shit out of a perfectly good game. Ugh. It was so well balanced now its in complete whack. After this patch, I may not get Frozen Throne.

Oghr's new album comes out next week? Man, time flies, it seems like yesterday that is was still months and months out... And I still haven't even gotten around to picking up Front242's new one yet.

HEADHUNTER! Front 242 is just plain awesome! Best Industrial band ever.

74. Who to Blame? Jun 26, 2003, 21:31 TangledThorns
 
I don't really blame Lucasarts for this but SOE. But its all about the Benjamins and even more terribly bad MMORPGs are on the way.

The problems with MMORPGs is not really with the games but the internet as a whole. Its based on a 30 year architecure and it'll take more than just faster pipes to make it all work. MIT and others are working on new ways that data is packetized so people can download faster. Meaning, someday you can download full movies in seconds instead of hours.

Who cares, everyone knows that the Infinium Phantom console will rule them all.

LOL, I just signed up for the beta. It'd be a interesting console if it works.

I'm just curious as to the new tech that will be going into the new consoles. I think it would be smart if they continued to add features like the DVD, HDD, ethernet and others like DVR. As for Nintendo, I'm not expecting much from them except more arrogance.
