News Comments > Kali Port Change

Kali was great for those games that only supported IPX networks, like Descent, NetMech and Duke Nukem 3D. I never did like the server tracking functionality very much, though.

The Civ IV theme song always reminded me of some generic "world music" you would find in the gift shop of some podunk natural history museum.

The ME generation (anyone under 30 is automatically included).

You do realize that the "Me Generation" term was coined in the 1970s, before anyone younger than 30 was born, right?

God do I miss the original Starsiege Tribes.
Any chance there are still servers running? Is it worth digging through my piles of CD's and finding the disc or downloading it from somewhere and checking?

IMO the peak of this game was right before the Scout update. I was always dreading that update because the Scout was my second most hated class (behind Sniper) but it was even "wackier" than I anticipated. The set/micro-transaction update was the last straw. But, at least I got my money's worth for TF2, which is more than I can say for Left 4 Dead.

One of the best things about QuakeWorld TF and TFC was that the game objectives weren't built into the game. Instead the objectives were left up to the map makers. There could never be a TF2 port of rock2, it would have to be ruined like the port of well, or payload which was supposed to be a substitute for hunted (a poor substitute IMO)

"Let's put it this way: If that guy really knew a lot about computers, would he be wandering the aisles in a blue shirt and slacks asking if you need help? No. No, he would not."

yeah that one is about as bad as "if he was so smart/talented he would be rich! but he's poor so he must be stupid/lazy."

LOL @ top-10 cities list. If Las Vegas is so desirable why are more people moving out of it than moving in?

In what way have they fallen to politicization? Is there a scientific body whose research on climate you trust?

I can't speak for Sencho but their Gulf oil report was all politics, no science.

While this change should not directly affect gamers, as it does not fundamentally alter the gameplay, we are making this change to stir up the controversy again, as it was getting a little stale and we were worried about the sales-boosting effect wearing off. Now, go out and buy this piece of shit, you fucking morons. Then pay us for the DLCs for all the stuff we left out of the original version. Yeah, take it, bitch.

omfg I just realized the new items added are ITEM SETS complete with ITEM SET BONUSES.

NOT GOOD

I didn't have an opinion on this until I found this out. Now I am against it. They've turned TF2 into Maple Story.

Err ok, if justice is really just code for "we need to stop them from killing other people" then sure.

Perspective. We're not talking about a serial murderer, we're talking about some island trash that made a massive error of judgment and displayed total negligence for the well-being of their friends and others on the road. People display that all the time and nobody gets hurt due to sheer luck. If this incredibly unlucky event never occurred, they would likely have continued their blissfully ignorant lives. Also, there is a culture of negligence on this island that will not go away just because you put a couple of people in jail. You could lock them up forever but some freshly dropped-out meth-addled island trash will take their place.

They have to be sent to jail to fulfill our primal need for justice. The problem is this island is full of trailer-trash no-class morons that only think about themselves. I don't know what it is about this place that breeds people like that.

i been to whidbey island. i cant get over the fact that gas stations there still use the honest system. you pull up and pump gas to whatever amount before paying. the meter is all mechanical vintage!

Not anymore, theft is a big problem here. We even had our car stolen once by some meth head. He was too stupid to drive it off the island, thankfully.
