And as it comes out this guy was a punk. A well known thug. With people like him it's usually a question of when, not if someone will shoot him.
That isn't to say the situation in Ferguson isn't fucked up, but that guy was a career criminal in training. Can't say I feel the least bit sorry for him.

You're a disgusting person.

I can't figure out if this is relevant to the Star Wars cut you're talking about or a stray copypaste.

And the room. Went. Wild.

Really? Together, as id, they made two great shooters. Individually, other than Carmack, none of those guys has ever achieved much, if anything.

Stop giving the guy so much credit for shit he did 20 years ago, people.

Agreed. He made FUCKING MOBILE GAMES. And his last PC/xbox/ps3 cross platform project failed after 2 years of development.

F him. I have no faith in him at this point.

Him and CB can go F themselves.

I have never really understood the hate towards Romero or Carmack. Only in the game industry can someone make some great games; ya know just games that changed gaming forever with Wolfenstein, Doom, and Quake...only to be hated and told to go fuck themselves because their careers didn't unfold according to what some of you wanted.

Only in the game industry huh? Never heard of the music industry?

Unless you're giving us Doom 2 with challenging AI, 40 decently designed levels, enemies that actually pose a challenge, weapons that don't feel like yet another shitty M16 clone (don't forget all the goofy accessories), and full 32 player multiplayer carnage with LAN/Dedicated servers...

If I ain't gots me a chainsaw, a double-barrel shotgun, and an ample supply of demon guts plastered all over the screen: GET BACK IN YOUR HOLE ROMERO.

+1

The problem is that kids these days only want rail shooters and twitch tiny room shooters. Skill and level design is long gone....

And then there is the excellent level design of Titanfall.

Activision hedging its bets by putting in place a small Adventure studio?
With all the recent Adventure comebacks on Kickstarter and the Oculus Rift a dice roll from going viral it's probably not a bad move at all.

I wonder if any of the Kickstarter folks like Jane Jensen and Two Guys From Andromeda are involved? What's Roberta Williams up to?

Throw out the resumes from dumb people.
Dumb people spam every job listing instead of just the one they actually want.
Throw their resume out... unless you want a dumb person working alongside of you.

It's obviously a bullshit survey. Betty White appeared high on the list of most influential celebrities among teenagers? I don't know how they carried out this survey but it's clearly worthless.

Judging from Paul Walker being so high I'm assuming it was from right around the time he died. Around that same time Betty White was all over the place on talk shows, special appearances etc.

That's not even an argument the lawyers are making. Why are you making it? The game design and characters were not taken from a cat toy.

Nothing you wrote/pasted disagrees with what ForgedReality said.

But after looking into it some more, there is some science at work here than neither of you touched on. Flat black does emit heat radiation better than non-black or glossy black.

Yes it does. He said colour doesn't affect an object and it does. Take to aluminum blocks and paint one black and one white and put them out in the sun for an hour. The black one is going to be hotter.

Yes, but as you've misunderstood again, that's about absorption not emission.
A point that he made in his own post, and you then followed up on essentially agreeing.

What makes you say that? I mentioned it before, but I don't think her design really looks anything like the video game birds. They're both red and they have big white eyes. She claims Hartz used her font, but they don't look similar at all. What else are you and Quboid seeing?

I suspect it's from not reading the PDF and the misleading headline.

I almost responded the first time you said this but Beamer covered it in a roundabout way. I guess you missed it though because this has nothing to do with the game design / art / gameplay. It's about the name "Angry Birds" as used in pet toys. Do you really think 1 bird from a cheap cat toy series inspired the design of the Angry Birds mobile game?

The comparison on page 13 is the most blatant. There's just no way that happened independently even if Hartz didn't have their fingers in both.

I feel like I'm looking at something different from everyone else. I mean, they're both red, and they have big eyes, and... that's it? The wings, tail, shape of beak, legs or lack thereof, secondary coloration all look dissimilar to me. Is there, like, a whole set of these things in the same color schemes as the other birds?

That portion of the document is misleading. This really has nothing to do with the looks but with the name "Angry Birds" in pet toys.

Points 34-36 is where she loses her case though. The entire document talks about how she has the rights to "Angry Birds" for pet toys and that Hartz was just licensing and managing it for her... But then Amendment 1 to the agreement lets them take it over. The only argument refuting that is that no “good and valuable consideration” was provided to her... But she signed it.

I don't hear explosions after playing, but many times I'll have restless nights where I continue playing a game while sleeping in dreams and wake up exhausted.

I've had this too. Body has stopped playing the game, but the brain has not. Extrapolating scenarios and stuff. Even without an actual game feeding your information the brain just keeps on churning along making it up.

I'm always kind of amazed at how accurate yet random the dream games are. I can play an entire candy crush level in a dream. That reminds me... I gotta stop playing candy crush in bed at 3am.

Haha:
"One gamer even reported hearing someone constantly whispering ‘death’ for a few days."

They didn't explain in the article, but that has to be from Black and White. I don't think I was hearing it, but it's one of those goofy sound effects I still remember and occasionally look up online.

Yeah I recognize the problem but I also don't think anything should be done beyond parental and school actions.

Mail, message boards, video sites, torrent networks, whatever... shouldn't be responsible for the actions of their users. Though they should comply with legal requests from law enforcement targeting specific individuals.

Technology/Internet crazes sweep through schools. Stuff was going "viral" there before the internet. If most, if not all, of the kids are using Secret then simply not looking at it would not be enough. Bullies need an audience, which is easy on the internet, and the victim doesn't need to be present.
