They did up the video quality, you just have to click the "View in high quality" link. This only works on videos uploaded relatively recently, though.

"With 'Spore,' we were intentionally not targeting the core gamer," he says. "Almost all of our testing was with Sims players and casual or nongamers. I'd much rather hit that broader group."

Of course they'd rather go for non-gamers. They are far more easily impressed than anyone who has played a game in their life. EA/Maxis were able to significantly decrease the amount of effort put into designing an appealing game and put all those extra resources into the hype machine.

You obviously have no idea what you are talking about. Zero. I would even go so far to call you an idiot regarding this subject.

It doesn't work?

Tell that to 10 million Guild Wars boxes sold.

That's because Guild Wars isn't F2P, and you just mentioned why it isn't.

The number one industry priority right now seems to be to find ways to charge for things in new and creative ways.

When will MBAs learn that "innovation" is not necessarily a good thing in the business world? Our current economic crisis is a perfect example of that.

News Comments > Jack Thompson to be Disbarred

Just because his legal credentials are gone doesn't mean he won't take his crusade to the protest scene. I would suspect he'll be even more rabid.

That's precisely what Fred Phelps did after he was disbarred.

The cherry on top of all this would be if he drops dead from a stroke.

I'd prefer to see him go the way of Joe McCarthy, his evident role model.

Couldn't he just go somewhere else and get a license?

Wikipedia's article on disbarment says this:

"In the United States legal system, disbarment is specific to regions; one can be disbarred from some courts, while still being a member of the bar in another jurisdiction. However, under the American Bar Association's Model Rules of Professional Conduct, which have been adopted in most states, disbarment in one state or court is grounds for disbarment in a jurisdiction which has adopted the Model Rules."

I think since this is a relatively high profile disbarment, he'd have a very difficult time getting on the bar in any state.

56. Re: No subject Sep 24, 2008, 19:05 dubfanatic
 
xXBatmanXx has a good point. Any Blue's News reader knew before Spore was even released that it would be infested with DRM. Not only that, but if you waited a day or two after release you'd know it isn't worth your money even without the DRM because the game sucks. Hell, it's not even worth pirating.

Dagok, they are referring to the fantastic DOS installer that C&C and Red Alert had in the beginning. They were quite a loss for the series as the installers helped bring you into the world. It's a shame no one does game installations quite like that anymore.

I haven't installed C&C or RA in probably 8 or 9 years, but I still remember the installers. I can't say that about any game released in the last decade.

Why do people buy games from developers with a record of releasing games unfinished? Seriously... don't complain about this sort of thing if you are helping perpetuate it.

Frankly if you've been forced to use mods to multiplay GTA on the PC in the past then I think anything would be an upgrade at this point.

no kidding... I realize coding those mods is very difficult work but it would definitely help if the teams had developers who knew what the fuck they were doing (like not letting random morons have source code access)

The only free games that don't attract children are the really complicated (or "boring") ones. But, by decreasing the amount of players and cutting out the only demographic that actually cares about buying anything in-game, they decrease their revenue. The only way for F2P to have any hope of being anywhere close to profitable is to cater to the lowest common denominator, which ruins its image.

So every game really does have at least one raving illiterate fanboy, even this game.
