As far as I know, under normal circumstances unionized musicians usually aren't allowed to take on any non-union work. The issue would be that the union hasn't come to an agreement with the various game companies.

If a porno really needed a composer I'd imagine they could work incognito and uncredited.

I've got it on cd somewhere, and I can't remember if it runs on 2K or XP. But it was an updated version only released overseas (I got it in the UK).

Wouldn't scumm (emulator) also run it? I admit I've not tried it...


In point of fact, the 3D games (Grim Fandango and Escape from MI) aren't SCUMM-capable, there's a sister project that handles those:

E3 2014: Remastered Grim Fandango heading to PS4, Vita

While that's good to hear, why not the PC?!

And you can't play the original because...

It's out of print and people might not have their original discs? And it would be nice to have the remastered version. Schafer implies it's coming, though:

"Talk about other platforms soon! Sony's been a great help making this happen & we're excited to be working with them on the console version!"

When games say "PC and PS4" I read it as another exclusivity-related delay, outside of first party games like Halo or MMOGs like War Thunder. But on the front page right now I see Magicka 2, The Talos Principle, Titan Souls and Hotline Miami 2.

But Microsoft were the ones who pissed me off first, so I'll be buying Sony consoles and will probably never own an MS console again. I imagine there are other people like me who Microsoft has alienated.

Because MS went first? Is this an attention span issue? I mean you personally, fine, but you think this would be normal for everyone else, too? Not 12 hours later you can search on Blue's front page for "PS4" and see the Sony exclusives, plus the Grim Fandango remaster (which has me slightly peeved for the presumable delay on the PC release).

I loved Battlezone I and II myself. Indeed there has been nothing to replace it thus far, but it something did, or if they even made Battlezone III, everyone would think it was crap and the original was better. The market today is saturated and there's always the "sequel sucks" psychology.

There was already that in 1999. You can see people below saying the original was superior, and opinions were a lot more vehement 16 years ago.

You need the PC wireless receiver (link) for the pad to function wirelessly.

Not relevant to you, but note that the Play and Charge kit won't let it function as a wired pad on the PC the way it does on an actual 360.

But that doesn't work with the xbone controller, does it? I assumed not...


My bad, sorry. The price threw me off.

It also doesn't even make sense within their own technology. Why isn't the inertial dampener countering that inertia as well? I can see it not engaging under a certain threshold, otherwise they couldn't even move around, but when a crew member is flung across the deck, the inertial dampener should simply prevent that from happening.

According to the comments on that page, the inertial dampener gets its input from the ship's computers or whatever, it's meant to be countering inertia from known acceleration, not so much unexpected blasts and crashes.

That still makes no sense. The Enterprise computer is so powerful and so fast that in between the nanosecond it takes for the blast to hit the shields and the kinetic energy to transfer to the crew, it could have calculated and adjusted the inertial dampener 2 billion times over while taking a vacation.

But I'm nitpicking. It's still funny to see them shake around in behind-the-scenes footage, and I never get tire of hearing a director say "Shake!"

Maybe it's the dampener and not the computer that's slow.

not sure what sempei wrote but Blue just posts news, afaik he doesn't hold any bias towards one game or another.

It's always the same two or three things that get posts deleted. You posted spam, or you directly attacked another poster. Or maybe it's the ethnic slurs and homophobia one, I don't know. I never know what to think when people with hundreds or thousands of posts attack another poster and then start abloo ablooing about echo chambers or whatever. It's like watching people fail INT checks in real life.

There are only four rules. Is this really hard?

Also, I read somewhere that since the publisher isn't offering XWing Alliance for sale anywhere, according to a provision of the DMCA it's officially abandonware and free to DL?

That sounds like wishful thinking. At most it would mean you can't get sued for cracking the copy protection on your own games -- something people generally take for granted anyways. There's no way that it would nullify copyright and make it legal to distribute. Abandonware isn't a legal condition at all.

I wouldn't say mediocre at all.

i would.. and i did

if you love it, awesome - good for you

but i expect a hell of a lot more from ULTRA!! graphics settings that cripple hardware in this way

Yeah, sorry man. Dont know what to tell you. The game looks fantastic for me. Short of Crysis 3, which isn't a massive open world game with tons of Ai running around, I'm not sure anything looks better. There's a few that look as good, but better? Can you give us an example to back up your point instead of just raving "its junk" and leaving.

Its definitely sure as hell better than DS2, which bragged about its ultra PC graphics, which most definitely did not live up to the hype.

This doesn't look remotely as good as Crysis 3. I don't fault WD for it because it's open-world and Crysis 3 isn't, but I do fault you for talking such bullshit about something we could be objective about. No, it doesn't look as good as Crysis 3 by a long shot and to claim otherwise is putting you in the biased fanboy category.

He clearly said "short of Crysis 3". That means, objectively, that Crysis 3 looks better. All you had to do was pick a different game.

Possibly an absurd question, but is the game playable/fun with mouse +kb, or is a joystick pretty much necessary?

I'm not in the beta so I can't say, but the last two games in the series were heavily biased towards KBAM. On the other hand, combat in the earlier games was also a genre worst -- I honestly don't think there's a space game with worse combat than Elite 2 & 3 -- so they'd have good reason to ditch that model.

If you played the original Wing Commander, think of the training simulator that lets you set up missions on the carrier (as I understand it).

The WC1 arcade game just threw Kilrathi at you in waves. What we'd call horde mode nowadays, with no options whatsoever. There was a whole different game that was a training simulator, Wing Commander Academy, which let you set up mission parameters.

Because it's like a story that several of the regulars have in their heads. We've had 3 companies for 3 console generations now, none of them just gave up and went home because they weren't in first place. Everything people post about what MS has to do is always about beating Sony instead of simply maximizing the profit from the current generation. It seems incredibly weird, but it's how the posts here are consistently phrased.

Why? Is avoiding something full of carcinogens meaningless unless you avoid every single substance that's bad for you? No, of course not.
It is meaningless if you are eating other processed foods. I guarantee if that bothers you, there is no processed food that doesn't have a step which you would find unacceptable.

Wait, so doing something is meaningless unless you do it cold turkey? So a smoker that cuts from a pack a day to a cigarette a day is doing something meaningless?

There's absolutely benefit to cutting back on processed foods, even if you don't cut back on all processed foods because it's nearly impossible to.

I get that his logic of "only an idiot drinks soda" is flawed, but yours is even more dangerously flawed. "Why bother doing something unless you do it absolutely?"

Well, the original quote he replied to was "Soda is gross, who knows what goes into that crap. I wouldn't drink anything that color." In that context, it is a little silly. The food coloring is probably the most harmless chemical in the stuff, and it's ridiculous how many foodstuffs are colored just because people expect them to be a certain shade of white or orange or whatever.

See, the thing I don't get about the narrative here at Blue's is why the second place console is automatically a failure and should give up. Why wouldn't MS just settle for second and make some money instead of immediately throwing away all the money sunk in development just because they're not first?

It's pretty sad that UBIsoft had such piss-poor timing with the release. Everyone who pirated this fucker is playing it over the holiday weekend, while the rest of us suckers and our useless preorders have to wait until the work-week starts again.


isn't it like that for every game? everything's pirated... this was lucky to only get released on the scene 4-5 days before release, while other games sometimes get leaked even a month early. (ex. Halo games on console)

I think he means the long weekend specifically. It works both ways, though, some people aren't available on long weekends since they're off doing holiday stuff.
