You got to hand it to the Jets - they play the ugliest, most boring games week in, week out.

I remember getting Singularity for less than 10 bucks (I think it was $7.50) and I got the first Modern Warfare for about the same, but yeah, Activision is exceptionally unrealistic with their prices and stingy with their discounts. Not being a multiplayer gamer, MW2 and 3 are each worth 5 bucks to me, so it looks like I'll be waiting quite some time yet before I get those. But it's not like I am chomping at the bit for them anyway.

The difference being that living in an environment that allows you to be outdoors all the time -- changes your social habits, your culture, your interaction with nature, and almost everything else. I've been to many different places. Being forced (or choosing) to stay inside all the time is both psychologically and physically destructive.

No it's not. Being out in the wilds is dangerous and possibly lethal. And all us northerners and people of northern European descent while away the winters in our caves quite comfortably, thank you very much. The only reason most people go out is because they have no other choice. Otherwise they'd be more than happy to stay in their caves and have everything come to them. And is there some reason people can't exercise indoors? In fact most people probably do. And most people in public are assholes and/or idiots and I really have zero desire to interact with any of them more than is absolutely necessary. Going out in public in any city is more an exercise in frustration and anger than anything else. Whilst I do like camping that's not as easy as just going outside and takes some time, money, and effort. So, thanks but no thanks.

Heh, I could have written this paragraph myself (Except for the camping part ). I couldn't agree more with the highlighted part.

Regarding the campaign though - the last decent one was the first OFP.

I agree. Though it may just have been the novelty of it because there was honestly nothing else like it when OFP came about. Ghost Recon had better mechanics but OFP was way more open-ended.

Time to remake my old coop mission from Ofp to Arma 3 now, should be fun.

Did you ever upload it to a mod or maps site or did you just keep it for you and your friends? I played a ton of user-made maps for coop OFP with my son and friend back in the day.

"Rayman Legumes"

Thanks for reminding me why I never read RPS.

They certainly have lost something in recent years. They aren't anywhere as good as they used to be, and they are far too whiny nowadays.

I generally play games in huge chunks when I get time - over the last three days I had off and played about 20 hours of Far Cry 3, for example. I don't regret or lament that fact one bit either (nor do I consider it being "trapped"...) because I enjoyed the vast majority of that time immensely. Which means it wasn't wasted. I still dislike MMO's though - I reluctantly joined my friends GW2 guild after he had been pestering me about it for quite some time, and while that game manages to avoid some of the major pitfalls of the genre, it still feels more like work than gaming. Which indicates most of that time was wasted I think. It is, as someone already mentioned, a personal preference thing. Your choice of how you spend your personal time does not make you better or wiser than someone else. I HATE the outdoors; others love it. To each his own.

No one gives a fuck about what you think about their posts. You've only been acting like a crying child throughout this entire thread. Fuck off and don't bother posting if you have nothing to add about the game.

He does the same crap in any thread about Star Citizen. The "Ignore" function is definitely your friend. Just stop quoting him because even those of us who have him on ignore will still see his idiotic blathering if you do.

I hate virtually all F2P games (though Path of Exile is almost okay) but that wasn't why this project doesn't seem like it should have the Homeworld name. Maybe they will surprise me but right now it just seems like it is a Homeworkd game in name only.

And yes, lots of people care about the property. The source files weren't used because the games were so easily moddable (though modders use HW 2 almost exclusively now because the engine is superior). Head over to www.moddb.com and see the huge mods that have been released for HW2. It is still quite relevant.

FPS is fine as long as it doesn't delay the main space game I think. I'm allowing myself to become *a little* more optimistic about this, but my wallet stays closed until I know more about the solo aspect.

But the character shouldn't have anything to do with the design. You can take a terrible character and make a great game with it, or take a great character and make a terrible game with it. The design is kind of separate.

Totally true. I guess my point was if all of his god-like skill is going towards making Mickey Mouse games that don't interest me in the least, why should I care what his design philosophy is?

And while Invisible War would have been a fine game in its own right as a sequel to the seminal Deus Ex from Warren Spector it was a pretty big regression. So yeah, even without him playing with his minnie mouse his opinion doesn't quite carry the weight it used to. Though I'd still listen to him if I was a game designer. He IS Warren Spector.

Warren Spector's Commandments of Game Designů

Back in the Deus Ex days I would have really put a lot of stock in this article, as Warren Spector was undoubtedly a design god and a force to be reckoned with. Now that he has resorted to making Mickey Mouse games, however, I have to admit I really don't care that much about what he has to say. I know, I know, the Epic Mickey games are supposedly good. But they are still centered around cutesy cartoon character for kids and named after the most commercial entertainment icon in the world. SOOO not interested.

Now that I think about it, the fact that Sanchez, who is inarguably the absolute worst quarterback to play in the NFL in a decade,
Talk about hyperbole, wow. Is Sanchez a great QB? No way. But, Sanchez is no where close to being the worst QB in the decade. Hell, he might not even be the worst QB the Jets have had in the last ten years.

The following QBs who have started games for the New York Jets since 2003 arguably aren't as good as Sanchez:

Quincy Carter
Brooks Bollinger
Kellen Clemens
Greg McElroy

I dunno, I've been a Jets fan since I was six years old. Those guys you mention were no Montana but none of them looked as consistently clueless and lost at the position as Sanchez does. He is horrible; I would say that one (maybe two) of past Jets QB maybe ties him for overall badness - MAYBE - but Sanchez makes Jets games painful to watch in a way those guys never did, at least for me. Richard Todd (remember him?) was worse than all of those guys and in his time he was better than Sanchez has ever been.

Nonsense, phalanxes were easy as pie to kill.

Phalanxes have always been nigh impregnable from the front but weak from the side and pathetic from the rear. If you have a holding force to pin them from the front and a fast roaming unit nearby (light footmen or ideally horsemen), it only took minimal maneuvering to hit them from their weak spot and break them. I'm no expert on Ancient Greek tactics but I think that's pretty historically accurate. Is that different this time around?
