Consider 0x10c Minecraft 2.
Sandbox in space.

There's a side documentary about Scrolls included with the Minecraft documentary.

Here it be: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8atE70UgCPY

Notch is not involved... well beyond giving his buddy a job and funding his game with Minecraft profits.

Minecraft would be well worth it at $100... Just sayin'.

Granted, that probably isn't the case with this new one, though I don't know much about it, specifically.

Value is relative. I tired Minecrap for a few hours and I wouldn't pay $1 for it. It was only a success because it became something of a meme like Angry Birds. 'What, you're not on board the XYZ train with everyone else? What's wrong with you?!'

You've already been called on it but I'll add on anyway.

Minecraft isn't "only a success because it became something of a meme". It's a success because it's a great game that appeals to all demographics for a variety of reasons. It went viral because of word of mouth and that word of mouth was "You gotta try this awesome game, it's only $15."

You don't like Minecraft, fine. I don't like 2D sidescrollers, that's also fine. But when you belittle the game as some sort of fluke you're totally wrong.

Some child star following the standard spoiled kid who thinks the world worships her acting out later in life routine. The tale is such a cliche I'm amazed anyone gives a fuck but I guess people just love reveling in the misery of others.

I feel bad for Amanda Bynes... She's getting this reputation but I think it's undeserved. She's not at Lohan's level yet. The things she's been in trouble for are no different than what ordinary people get in trouble for. Cell Phone while driving, DUI... Then they suspend her license so she of course gets a ticket for driving on a suspended license. Once you're in that system it's difficult to escape and being hounded by paparazzi certainly isn't going to make it easier. I have friends and family with similar rap sheets and I know it's not easy even when photographers aren't chasing you anywhere you go.

I'm willing to give her the benefit of the doubt on these latest charges. The doorman called the police for smelling marijuana... what? And then they answered that call with multiple officers... what? Then they put her in a psych ward... what?

So what do the female employees look like? Are there any?

Women in electronics/IT?

I don't think they exist.
There are a few. Just a few compared to males.

I wouldn't really consider the Apple Store electronics/IT ... It's a retail job.

Software development is historically seen as male dominated but our current pool of of developers is over 1/3rd female. My daily team meeting is 7/16. Though our one American female developer left a few years ago. The 7 women on my team now are Indian, Taiwanese, and Russian. Hey ladies, do you want a job when you graduate? Go CompSci!

what possible reason could they have for wanting to make huge design and technology changes to the game now?? after so many years?

Honestly why do companies do this?? I am sure Titan is fine the way it is and heck its probably awesome. I guarantee you they do not need to change the game design or the technology.

The question is what clueless suit wearing douche-bag walked in and made such a retarded decision.

You can't be that naive.

The suit walked in said let's ship this pile of shit already and the one honest guy with ballz of steel stopped the freight train. Their only redemption is they haven't married it to a massive expensive marketing campaign with a vague release date.

Like I said yesterday, it's more like a suit walked in and said "This needs to be F2P, rework the economy to make it so." Then the honest guy with the balls of steel told him they couldn't just slap that onto the existing game ( la D3) so he told them to start over and you might as well make it work for PS4 and Xbox1 while you're at it.

Called it.

I had said multiple times previously on this forum that Titan was a casual game originally designed not to compete with WoW but either was or will be mothballed and its assets used in a new MMOG that would essentially replace WoW.

I'd bet it was the other way around. It was probably WoW in space and they realized they'd need to do more than just that. So here comes the F2P, RMAH, Facebook integration, and PS4/Xbox1 compatibility.

News Comments > Steam Top 10

Gotta agree with Prez here. I just can't get into 2D sidescrollers. It's not that I don't like 2D games, I enjoy puzzle games, rpgs, adventures in 2D just not when they're sidescrolling (The Cave was really pushing it with me). They feel very limited to me, like some have mentioned here when I was playing Terraria I kind of just felt like I'd rather play minecraft where I could explore in 3 dimensions.

I don't want to diminish the genre though. I understand why people like them and there are really beautiful and interesting/innovative 2D sidescrollers out there, just not for me.

I wish there was a good way to tell how many hours I've put into CS, CS:S, and CS:GO.

GO should theoretically be accurate at 222 hours.
Source says 673 but that's just a fraction of it.
CS probably would have the most for me but that predates Steam.

As far as fighting games go mortal kombat is pretty bad. The fighting mechanics are not very in depth and the action is slow and bland. I never understood the fascination with Mortal Kombat, and I suspect it's only popular because it's so damn violent. It doesn't help that there are HUGE character imbalances too with some clearly being superior to others *cough* Jax *cough*

The one fighting game I really want to come to PC is Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom 3. I read a rumor that Capcom would love to release a PC SKU but Marvel is holding back the rights. But beggars can't be choosers I guess.

I've never really been a big fan of fighters but from what I've heard MK (surprising to me) is one the big competition games these days. I have a handful of friends who attend the tournaments and post in the various communities and they're talking about MK.

The old MK games had a TERRIBLE fighting system, but the latest one apparently has a professional grade one.

That's what I was getting at

Why so many posts?

Quick summary of the thread?
MS basing? Indifference? Genuine excitement?

All you need to know is I'm generally right about everything.

Wrong.

If I'm virtually always right then the odds are actually pretty good that you're wrong. See how that works?

It's a nearly meaningless statement anyway. You're generally right about everything? So what do you mean by "generally"? More often that not? Like you're right 50.1% of the time? Yeah, so is generally/virtually everybody.

People at work say to me, "You're always right" but I disagree with them. Allowing others to think that or having that perception of yourself is dangerous. Know that you know nothing.

I don't know why I'm bothering to preach humility to Cutter though, prolific partier, banger of scores of women, survivor of 8 gram rocks, and a rockstar from Mars. Nothing wrong with those things of course but when you're reminding everyone all the time...

What is Gungame DM ?

GunGame is a mode in CS, CoD, BF and other games where you need to get a kill with every gun. There's a bunch of different rule variations on it too. My favorite though is GG DM Turbo. Deathmatch meaning you respawn right away and Turbo meaning you get your next gun immediately after getting a kill with the current gun. The server I linked goes Pistols, Shotguns, Subs, Rifles, Snipers, Nade, Snipers, Rifles, Subs, Shotguns, Pistols, Nade, Knife.

In CS GO, Valve created a new official mode called Arms Race which is basically the same as GG DM Turbo. There's another official mode called Demolition which is more like regular GG (no instant respawn, no instant weapon switch, and a bombing objective) but it has a limited set of weapons (8 I think).

If any one is taking advantage of this and wants to play some GunGame deathmatch, stop by my stomping grounds: 74.63.223.45:27015

That's a custom GG mod that's quite a bit different from the official version "Arms Race". You might be put off by the maps a bit though, most are converted from Source and are made for their layouts not their looks.

Same community runs two other GO GG servers and a bunch of Source ones too: https://www.dogzgaming.com/viewpage.php?page_id=2
