There's too many inconsistencies in this so called considered bill, it'll never pass.

It sounds like you are under the impression that the US legislature considers that a priority. This is incorrect. The fact that this corporate-backed bill is getting fast tracked to the Senate floor while bills that could solve real problems languish in committee should show you where their priorities really lie.

You gave it that long? I deemed it worthless in less than a day.

The only thing that kept me going that long is that I was in a guild with some people in my dorm. If I was on my own I would never have even started to play it.

Drug dealers give first-timers a freebie..this is no different. It's crack no matter how you slice it.

Then I must have immunity because I played it for two weeks and got completely bored with it. Such a boring "game" if you can even call it that.

I'm not surprised. There's no established formula that has proven to be a commercial success, and the industry is afraid of taking any risks, hence all the WoW clones.

CK1 was/is my favorite Paradox game. This is looking to be 100x the game that CK1 was. Can't wait!

Kali was great for those games that only supported IPX networks, like Descent, NetMech and Duke Nukem 3D. I never did like the server tracking functionality very much, though.

The Civ IV theme song always reminded me of some generic "world music" you would find in the gift shop of some podunk natural history museum.

The ME generation (anyone under 30 is automatically included).

You do realize that the "Me Generation" term was coined in the 1970s, before anyone younger than 30 was born, right?

God do I miss the original Starsiege Tribes.
Any chance there are still servers running? Is it worth digging through my piles of CD's and finding the disc or downloading it from somewhere and checking?

IMO the peak of this game was right before the Scout update. I was always dreading that update because the Scout was my second most hated class (behind Sniper) but it was even "wackier" than I anticipated. The set/micro-transaction update was the last straw. But, at least I got my money's worth for TF2, which is more than I can say for Left 4 Dead.

One of the best things about QuakeWorld TF and TFC was that the game objectives weren't built into the game. Instead the objectives were left up to the map makers. There could never be a TF2 port of rock2, it would have to be ruined like the port of well, or payload which was supposed to be a substitute for hunted (a poor substitute IMO)
