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...

The last time I played this game, I had my mission sabotaged by the children I was paired with because I wouldn't give them my loot.

I remember there were some missions in the game (original, before expansions) that were impossible without a human party because the henchmen were woefully underpowered for the mission. Problem is, most people got through those parts before I did, so there were very few groups to join. Effectively you were stuck at these missions if you didn't have any trusted people to play with. Did they ever improve the henchmen or matchmaking?

3. Re: Joystiq - Is game censorship... Apr 11, 2009, 15:17 dubfanatic
 
Yeah that article is junk. Did it not occur to the author that German developers are more aware of the censors than US developers, leading to the German games being designed to avoid the censors?

Good point about The Witcher. Germany hates violence in media as much as Americans hate sex in media (if not more). Maybe the whole war thing had something to do with it...

Isn't there already a game called Blood Bowl? Or is this a remake?

Oh, it's a new adaptation of the Games Workshop franchise, duh...

What's with all the links to Slashdot, when the Slashdot "articles" are just links to blog posts... which invariably come from somewhere else? (since we all know bloggers can't come up with original content)

I had a Voodoo 3 3500, the one with the TV tuner. That was probably the second worst video card I've ever owned (behind the Voodoo Rush, my first 3D card). I had to underclock the card to get it to work properly, and the TV tuner barely worked.

The "First commenters" article was just as nerdy as the people who make those damn posts.

I would probably play a Redneck Rampage MMOG, and I generally hate MMOGs so that says a lot.
