News Comments > The Incredible Machine Series Bought, Reissued
13. Re: Game Reviews Oct 1, 2009, 16:37 dubfanatic
 
GOG were forced to remove the Codemasters racing games because of licensing agreements beyond their control. In other cases where they were forced to stop selling games, they kept the game up for download for customers. Blaming GOG for that is silly. I would bet GOG will never release a game with expiring license agreements ever again because of the misunderstanding it caused.

It took me about 2 minutes from starting Steam to the download starting, then when it started it proceeded at my connection's full speed.

Oh and I'm sure this is totally about principles, NOT about his own political beliefs conflicting with the Beck-induced boycott of Fox News. If Olbermann or Maddow said something that caused a boycott of MSNBC, why, he'd be the FIRST to show up!

News Comments > Stardock Boycotting UPS? [Updated]

UPS has the right to not support the ravings of a lunatic. Wardell has the right to not support UPS for doing so. And I have the right to not support Wardell for indirectly supporting the ravings of a lunatic.

I was probably going to buy Elemental eventually but I prefer to support apolitical businesses.

And I'm really tired of all the Civ IV Complete sales that AREN'T Civ IV Complete.

Yeah that's weird, the description just says it includes Civ4+Warlords. No mention of Beyond the Sword. I got Civ IV Complete from GamersGate when it was on sale a few weeks back, and it was the real deal.

Yeah the "persistence" was just glorified musical chairs, but the massive, 500+ player three-way battles were really amazing. I hope they implement a compelling persistent world this time.

I missed the beta so I don't really know what I'm talking about, but this game strikes me as a post-apoc Asheron's Call with better combat. If that's true I might have to try this one out.

its only questionable because hitler used it to identify his movement. the swastika is much older than nazis, its older than germany itself - its been used in asia for thousands of years

swastikas are evil but fasces are OK because it's a symbol of power, not hippy bullshit

Still waiting for a free trial or forget it.

Don't you know, open betas are the new free trials. And then when the open beta ends you have to pay to keep beta testing it. Aren't MMOGs just so great?

SimFarm was pretty good IMO, and has aged relatively well.

You heard it here first, folks. WoW is the safe, predictable Buick of MMOs. The cornerstone of gaming suburbia, the doormat of progress. Lay down the rest of your lives and relax in WoW.

That explains why I found WoW excruciatingly boring.

News Comments > Game Addiction "Pandemic"?
9. Re: Game Addiction Sep 17, 2009, 14:31 dubfanatic
 
decry it as an addiction akin to narcotics so as to seem morally in-the-right so that you can get back on the factory line (so to speak).

But we don't have factories anymore...

Last time I went in to renew my license, there was nobody in the office except the clerks. There are some perks to living in the relative middle of nowhere..

You could do this in XP and Vista too... I've been using an iconless desktop for years now.

Yeah, sounds like a bunch of marketing bullshit to me. "Ever-changing, ever-uncertain in-game environment"? It's like the author hasn't actually played WoW for more than 20 minutes.

to prove defamation you have to prove the defendant knowingly LIED about the so-called defamatory claims. if he believed them to be true, its not defamation. so good luck with that

This is true in countries with sane defamation laws. Australia has the most fucked up defamation laws in the world, which is why Evony chose it as the jurisdiction, even though no parties involved are based there.

A blog no one reads, and an MMO that no one plays.

I smell viral marketing.

Just because you haven't read it doesn't mean nobody else has been keeping up on this.

haha I can see the board meetings... "OK zombies and superheroes are both really popular right now, which one should we try to shoehorn into a game totally unrelated to either one? Oh, damn, you mean someone just made another superhero MMOG? Zombies it is then."
