There's that big hoohah giong on still (i think?) over forcing cable companies to provide ala carte programming (No, I DON'T WANT THE FUCKING STYLE NETWORK).

Trust me, even if they had to do "a la carte" programming they'd find a way to make it worthless. My phone company, for example, has "a la carte" IPTV, but they still include The Christian Channel in the "essentials" package. I can't figure out why they think that's a good idea, considering this is the least religious city in North America.

"During the development process the H.A.W.X team has also worked with the U.S. Geological Survey and the Center for Earth Resources Observations and Science (USGS/EROS) to understand how to best create a topographical 'underpinning' for the satellite imagery, creating a very realistic representation of the Earth."

in other words they used a Digital Elevation Model. amazing.

For those that didn't know.. Gaute Godager the lead dev for AOC was also the lead dev for AO. He was reponsible for the shadowlands exp fiasco which got him fired. Today somehow after AOC bombed he still has his job which speaks volumes about how incompetent failcom really is.

I've never heard of this fiasco, could you elaborate? Also if he was fired for the fiasco how is he still working for Funcom? Did he get re-hired?

I hope everything works out. Qtracker is the best server browser around right now.

If you had told me 10 years ago that Mythic would be bought by EA (at that point, still a respectable outfit), turned into a heartless franchise milker and would start pulling crap like this, I would have laughed at you and gone back to playing Magestorm.

"Based on a colorful, bright and cheerful world"

I've never been in an Asda before but I wouldn't expect them to be any more colo(u)rful, bright or cheerful than any other supermarket.

Seriously, though, while I can understand the comments I have to agree with the majority of posters in that Quake appealed to me because of its clarity of game rules. No crazy super dodging combos or wacky weapons, just good ol' deathmatch in straightforward, well-designed spaces.

Agreed completely. Quake is good solid fun and I'm looking forward to playing it again.

Other than GTA - I have been watching this game for YEARS! YEARS go by without an update - now they are doing Beta and because I think facebook is the stupidest fucking thing in the world i miss out? DAMNIT!

I don't think so. Read the story more carefully.

News Comments > id: Quake Live "Premium" Service and Wolfenstein Live Possible
10. Re: ... Aug 13, 2008, 17:50 dubfanatic
 
No kidding. The key word in this discussion is possibility. A premium version is mentioned as a possibility that may or may not happen depending on the success of an unreleased game. That means they have most likely not done any thinking or research about what they would offer in such a deal. If you seriously think a company like id would charge extra for nothing, you're clueless.

Also, When the hell is valve going to fix the broken OP class known as soldier, or fix the damage of demoman's det nade.

What's wrong with those? Soldiers aren't overpowered. If anything, scouts are. And should the sticky damage be increased or decreased?

Mind you, I'd say the damage is already done. Carry on.

Yeah, he's been destroying his reputation for 15 years or so, I don't think there's much use in explaining it to him...

News Comments > TF2 Map Plans, Heavy Updates
15. No subject Aug 12, 2008, 20:26 dubfanatic
 
ughh of all the great maps they could have included, they chose steel. I guess they want to cater to the 32-slot server crowd, since those are the only servers that steel plays well on.

I also want to know where Badlands disappeared to, as Valve was meant to be releasing it for TF2.

Badlands was added a few months ago... also thanks for reminding me of rock2. I miss that map, especially the mad rushes to save ourselves from the gas.

haha, the login page says "PASSWARD". and I am also confused as to why they named their game after a British supermarket chain.

Are there any Korean MMOGs that aren't total grind fests? Or, for that matter, are there any that have characters that don't look like 2-year-olds?
