FYI about the steam giveaway, the rules state you must have at least 10 titles in your wishlist to be eligible, so don't stop at the 5 you want.

I remember slaughtering entire armies with some archers because the AI forgot how to attack. There's a difference between bad AI and non working AI, upon release these games usually have the latter. Yes they fix it, but I consider this an April 2011 release.

I encountered an issue after upgrading from and AMD to Intel quad core. The game stutters pretty bad and is actually running slower now, its odd. Other then that I have not noticed any bugs.

1. Re: What James Madison Thought About Video Games. Nov 3, 2010, 12:17 D4rkKnight
 
Why isn't it common sense to say that if a parent wants his 13-year-old child to have a game where the child is going to sit there and imagine he is a torturer and impose gratuitous, painful, excruciating, torturing violence upon small children and women and do this for an hour or so, and there is no social or redeeming value, it's not artistic, it's not literary, et cetera

What the hell is that...I don't know of any games that allow you to do this. Making up sensational bullshit to sell your case is pretty low.

Atari stopped Bioware from selling the premium modules, but I do notice that one of them, Darkness over Daggerford, was released for free:

Not very modable apparently, they lock it down I hear. That's a shame because games like this thrive on large mod communities like X has.

These guys could make 100 games and still manage to make some of the worst diplomacy and combat AI i've even experienced. I'm looking forward to two years after the game is released less then the actual release itself.

I don't find it particularly surprising that you start having hearing loss in your teens. You actually have your best hearing abilities around 8-12 years old and anything after that is "hearing loss". Try the frequency pitch tests, even teenagers lose the ability to hear them and that is entirely normal.

"One in five teens suffer hearing loss."

This just in, apparently the human body ages!

That's why I didn't like Europa or Victoria, it's too controlled by history. My nation never feels unique because the game dictates what everyone can and can't have at a certain time period.

"Strategy Analytics: Global MMORPG Market to hit $8 billion in 2010"

The author is working hard at earning his first billion by charging almost 2 grand just to read his report.

Is this a fact? Did you call the guy up or see it on that linked site?

What happened to Blizzards multiplayer spawns?

They have become a publishers pawn like most devs.

I'm with PHJF on this, their streaming service just sucks. The interface was dreadful on the Wii, with endless pages of absolute shit movies. I canceled before my trial week was up because it was not even worth $8/month.

Let's stop acting like steam and GoG have the same selection of games.

Way to attract new players...I was interested in trying this game but these DOTA clones seem just as elitist as it was only now you have to pay to get in.

4. Re: A Decade of Diablo II Jun 29, 2010, 18:12 D4rkKnight
 
Some of the overland levels were pretty lame, especially the desert and swamp. I always wonder why almost every action/rpg dev feels the need to have desert and swamp levels. Most of the time it feels like they didn't even enjoy creating them in comparison to their other levels.

The thing about Diablo II is that everything had a chance to drop some special item which fueled your addiction, even if the levels or enemies sucked it wouldn't stop most people from playing.

Will Wright:
"SimCity kind of worked itself into a corner, (because) we were still appealing to this core SimCity group. It had gotten a little complicated for people who had never played SimCity. We want to take it back to its roots where somebody who had never heard of SimCity can pick it up and enjoy playing it without thinking it was really, really hard."

So they made Societies, and that was the end of Simcity as we knew it.
