News Comments > Blood Revival Proposed
16. Re: Blood Revival Proposed Aug 4, 2012, 18:14 Wookiestick
 
Oh hell yes!
For real, back in my high school days I used to play this game on T.E.N. and over direct dial up connections along with Quake (via PCanywhere software) and Duke Nukem 3d.
The first Blood is one of the most underrated PC shooters. It came out during an explosion of "me too" games that wanted to cash in on the popularity of the first person shooter craze that Wolf3D, Doom, Duke Nukem 3D, and Quake had paved. Had it come out a year earlier I think it would have done better (it came out 6 months before Quake 2). What it lacked in cutting edge tech with design changes to polygonal 3D, it completely made up for in personality.
It was gory as all shit, it was fun to play, had funny catch phrases injected with pop culture references, many moments of extreme excellence in level design, it was a BLAST in coop, fun deathmatch (blood bath). Critics derived that was much too much like Duke3d but I disagree.
If this post is genuinely by Jason Hall I for one am totally hoping this happens, or at the very least somehow release the source code for the community to add. I am also willing to help wherever I can.

I was playing during the great lag quake for Diablo 3. Luckily I am not hardcore for hardcore, but there was a lot of complaining in general chat.
I did die though.

News Comments > Vivendi to Discuss Activision Sale?
37. Re: Vivendi to Discuss Activision Sale? Jun 8, 2012, 14:35 Wookiestick
 
Well, CoD can only ride the wave for so long. Just like any other market plan for, say a MMORPG like WoW...
You can only release an addon/expansion/sequel with refined gameplay with success for so long. It climbs, plateaus, and then falls. WoW peaked around 2010 and has slowly lost revenue, though still remains profitable.
I personally think CoD has hit that middle point. Maybe that's why they are eying a sale of this nature. Sell it before it's value goes down in stock.

I'd be curious to know if UE4 won't support Wii U because it isn't fast enough or because of it's vastly different CPU/GPU architecture isn't worth the effort.

Sorry for being slightly off subject, but has anyone made any sort of publically accessible improvements with the Doom 3 source code yet? A search turns up nothing.

Just bought the CM Sirus headset last month. Very nice hardware, though the optional analog hookups don't have the degree of tweaking control the onboard USB/DAC has.

News Comments > More on DOOM 3 Source Release
6. Re: More on DOOM 3 Source Release Nov 16, 2011, 14:39 Wookiestick
 
To be honost I dislike Creative Labs as a company. They have a griphold on the soundcard market with EAX (though some companies have reverse engineered it with limited success)-- and yet continue to release overpriced mediocre sound cards. They update their drivers maybe once every 2 years (if at all). I recently bought an ASUS XONAR DX soundcard and I love it for sound editing, though it only supports up to EAX 2.0.
After the aggressive affair with cock-blocking id with Doom 3's shadow technique (on a patent Creative made a decade before hardware was even capable of running said method), I find their reputation to be a crappy taste in my mouth.

Verno wrote on Sep 6, 2011, 11:32:

That is total nonsense man, like literally utter bollocks. No one in their right mind would spend millions buying up an IP for a popular game franchise then decide to not use it. Valve would probably never sell it to anyone but Turtle Rock anyway. I could maybe see Valve getting Techland to make L4D3 externally but even that's kind of dubious.

When I confronted him with almost verbatim what you said, his response was "I'm only repeating what the developer told me."

I am not disputing your statement, Verno.

18. Dead Island is L4D3 (?) Sep 6, 2011, 11:29 Wookiestick
 
A guy I know swears up and down that he went to PAX Dev 2011 convention and that one of the devs for Dead Island said that Techland contracted out/bought out the rights for Left 4 Dead 3. Dead Island was going to be Left 4 Dead 3 but throughout the development it changed so much that they renamed it Dead Island. I realize this is kind of a dubious statement to make but I can't give out the name of this guy out of fear of reprisal inside the industry (for him).

The first one had time trial scoreboards. You could do certain events in the game and earn so many points in so much time. It was then posted to competitive leaderboards.
