So I don't get my kudos for being the only one 2 for 2 on my picks because of the silliness of the "Har-bowl" ?

No one likes meatloaf. It's always either too soggy or too dry, too much of one thing or not enough of it. I don't think I've ever met a meatloaf I've liked. Probably the closest was someone - this was forever ago - made mini-meatloafs in one of those mini-loaf pans and I seem to recall it wasn't bad.

I grew up with great meatloaf as a kid... But it wasn't beef, was 60/40 pork/venison because of our "deer meat freezer" and hunter relatives. Mmmm get some onions in there and cover it with mushroom gravy. Delicious.

My friend's cat will do amazing acrobatic acts to catch flung rubber bands and will bring them back. Always thought it was hilarious seeing that cat trot up to me with a rubber band in its mouth and drop it at my feet.

Clear enough this time?

Yes, it is clearer now, you are blaming programmers who get into business for the industry's woes. Pretty silly but so are nearly all generalizations like that.
Yeah, I guess it is silly to think that poor management accounts for most business failures...it's -much- more reasonable to think that the game industry is just "special" and ever so much more difficult than any other industry.

That's not what I nor you said.
Poor management... Fine.
But you said poor management because of programmers and then in your clarification made that even clearer. Many of the most successful companies in the industry are managed by former programmers and the software/gaming industry as a whole is greatly comprised of people working in non-programming positions who started off coding. You see a failure and point at a former progammer now failing at business but ignore the successful ones and the failures by people who've never programmed. It's silly.

Where are you guys getting this info about a 1 hour beta? That sounds... absurd.

Also:
Running from 5pm GMT on January 25 until 8am GMT on January 28, the SimCity beta [...]

You claim to have worked in the industry for 12 years, but you show a pretty piss poor understanding of how it operates and how it really is substantially different from most other industries. Certainly every industry shares aspects of what the games industry does, but very few of them have to deal with all of the problems as extreme as this industry does. The nature of digital gaming is that it's actually very easy to get in to but much, MUCH harder to survive in. There are fewer protections against bad actors and sudden shifts in the environment, both of which happen with high frequency. Most publisher contracts are fairly draconian, yet aside from the novelty that is Kickstarter and the ilk, there are few alternatives to them aside from simply not existing at all. Recently that's improved somewhat with Steam, Faceobok, and the proliferation of flash games, but doing A - AAA games as an independent is still one of the hardest, yet rewarding, things to do. Still, even people in the industry don't seem to value the work that is done as much as it is in other industries. Part of that is simply the immaturity of the industry, part of that is there are a lot of eager people who are willing to forgo pay and benefits for the opportunity. Either way, the industry is different.

In your infinite wisdom, if every industry is the same, why did you leave?
Keep being an asshole, and this will be the last time I respond to you.

Money, stability, and poor management (mostly because of programmers whose egos make them think that they are too smart to fail at business), are the biggest reasons. And #1 and 2 are mainly caused by #3.

That's why the industry is the way it is or that's why you left? Either way... Blame it all on programmers? Come on...

The Wire isn't like the CSI/NCIS crap. I've never been a fan of any cop drama show before but I'm a huge fan of The Wire. Started watching it back in July and I'm now two episodes into the final season (5).

It's as much about the "bad guys" as it is the good, and at times I've got to remind myself it's fiction and not a documentary. Very well written and acted but most HBO stuff is.

I don't use strategy guides or read about builds or anything like that, ruins all of the challenge and fun of doing it yourself. For people who don't care as much then I'm sure its good but I have to wonder why bother when they could just go to gamefaqs.

- DADES - This is a signature of my name, enjoy!

After playing Oblivion a few years ago, I happened upon the guide at a garage sale for $1. I had already gotten everything I wanted out of the game, but it was fun to go back and read the quests I'd done, see what I missed, etc. Also having a guide available when you're really stuck is convenient.

Agree with Brubeck tho, this needs to be optional/hideable.

The only guide I've ever owned was the one for Morrowind. Read that front to back multiple times and usually during class too. From what I remember it was actually pretty funny at times.

edit: This one which apparently sells for $97 new and $2 used. Hah, look at the author's other books.

It sounds to me like you want Minecraft to be more "gamey" than it is. The things you talk about being rough like combat, experience, adventure (nether quest), and NPCs are not core in my opinion. I feel like Notch added that stuff because of complaints that there was "nothing to do" and I've really not explored them in a significant way.

Verno wrote on Jan 16, 2013, 09:33:
It's too subjective to really debate with someone, is Garrys Mod a complete game? It's sold as one now but the user largely crafts the experience itself. Minecraft is similar.
I do consider Garry's Mod a complete "game". It does what it purports do and it does it well. If it doesn't have portals yet I don't consider that a missing feature. Minecraft lacks a lot boilerplate gaminess but makes up for it with a variety of game world mechanics not previously seen in all one sandbox title. That's why I've got to roll my eyes when people talk about missing features and a lack of things to do.

Verno wrote on Jan 16, 2013, 09:33:
Anyways I'm not trying to change your mind, you wanted me to explain my thoughts and so I did.
I'm glad you did, I just didn't want the verdict left at digital lego with half-finished features without an opposing view.
And again, I'm not taking this as a "diss", I had my time with Minecraft years ago now, I just think your assesment is wrong... Somebody is wrong on the internet! XD
