News Comments > Goodbye from 3D Realms
18. Re: Goodbye from 3D Realms May 9, 2009, 13:08 dubfanatic
 
Daikatana was made by Ion Storm, not 3d Realms. At least Daikatana was actually released, made money, and developed in only 3 years, not 13. Hell, 3 years is actually a short amount of time compared to today's games. I can't imagine wasting 17% of my life (assuming one lives to ~75) on something that will never come to fruition.

He meant "Daikatana-type" stories. That missing hyphen threw me off as well...

Making History Gold is a decent WW2 grand strategy game. Definitely worth $10 IMO. The original edition got 6 of 8 on Out of Eight but some of the problems have been fixed in the Gold edition (i.e. you can play as any nation, the AI is better all around, you can start in 1933)

The matchmaking needs improvement, but I have had no problems with the official servers in months. The only time I have server problems is when I end up on unofficial servers. One such server I joined had too few slots for versus, and the survivors were instantly demolished by about 40 AI Hunters. But, I usually end up on Valve's official servers and I have no problems with them. I suppose it helps that I'm about 30 miles from the server farm... I imagine I'd be telling a different story if I was in Europe or Aus/NZ.

I'm about ready to give up on on-line play for this one. Not because of the lag, but the hacks. It's getting almost as bad as CS. In the past day I've run into wall hackers, auto-targeters, and invincible zombies.

Wow, that's just unlucky. I haven't noticed any cheaters in this game at all, and I've had it since November.

better questions imo are why anyone thinks the military has their best interests in mind and doesnt plan on using them like a disposable tool.. and for those that know this and still choose to do it, why would they sell their soul for such an opportunity?

This is a good thing... the lower end of the bell curve fills the ranks, leaving the upper end to get things done.

Why would you buy a second copy of TOB and make a second account for it? Am I out of the loop on some sorta memo or something?

Account hijacking insurance I guess... common sense usually works for me but I guess some people need to pay for it.

EGATrek was good stuff, I liked that game and I wasn't even a fan of Star Trek.

If this was like SimCity with real pollution and hydrology models it would be cool but this sounds firmly in the "edutainment" category.

My little brother loved this game... I never understood why. He kept trying to get me to play it but I always thought it sucked. Oh well.

Government's response to the people

Care to elaborate?

More seriously, if you actually believe that fiction you're needing to get a better news source.

Any suggestions?

This action comes on the heels of nationwide tea parties taking place today to protest irresponsible government.

What has that clever piece of AstroTurf got to do with this? Just had to get a word in edgewise about it?

rising development costs + poor economy + very small and highly critical player base = genre death

there you go, didn't need to write an essay to tell you that

Good thing I bought the boxed copy...

This patch actually made the game quite playable for me. Disabling shadows takes a huge load off the CPU, and the shadows were hideous anyway so it actually looks somewhat better. My Saitek P880 gamepad also now works perfectly ingame.

Looks interesting (I never played DotA) but it's just not striking me as a must-buy. I'm gonna wait for reviews...
