Having been slightly too young to be an Ultima person, would it be reasonable to attempt Ultima VII, or is it simply too old?

I would say the Google map makes the experience a little more modern.

Has anyone played Galaxiae? It's former shareware but now a free game. It looks like Elite mixed with some sort of RTS.

Electronic Arts issues their promised Q1 2012 fiscal results, showing a smaller loss for the period than the company had projected based thanks to digital distribution and strong sales of Valve's Portal 2.

Wait. Back up. When did EA acquire Valve? Did I miss this? I thought Valve was independent?

Don't see how they will be able to explain a buggy, incomplete or poor port for the PC, with all this cash and man hours going to these extremely expensive pr videos.

So it must be perfect.
People like you are not this publisher's top priority. Actually, most publishers don't consider you a top priority.
I'm just glad the video industry has you to speak for it. I know the world is a little better off with you talking and thinking for it. As a matter of fact, we're all just glad you can speak and type.

Oh come now. There's no need to fight with words. You two should hug it out. Go on, hug. Do it... for science! Hug

Thx, just checked them out... electro is a much better fit really. My mind envisions simple, harsh music with electronic and occasional organic elements, competing in tension like augmentations vs. "purity" in the human body.

"Seduction Of Canned Laughter" did have analog and digital elements. Nevertheless... "electronic and occasional organic elements, competing in tension like augmentations vs. 'purity' in the human body." Hmmm... how about these?

Hybrid - Empire (Orchestral Edit) My top choice! Perfect theme for Sarif Industries
Architect - The Shadow of Eve
Trentemøller - Evil Dub

Noteworthy
Elite Force - You
Architect - Wachsmut

we know how the borg evolved mostly it was an merger between a human and the voyager probe.

There's too many rumors or conflicting ideas but none of them are official. A film or television series by Paramount would pretty much make whatever origin they decide on canon.

Great clip.. the music they used is a bit weak though. Doesn't seem to fit the message or the "universe" IMHO.

For your consideration I recommend "Seduction Of Canned Laughter" by Teargas & Plateglass or "Light #1" by Nosaj Thing. In your mind overlap the music with the video. I'm too lazy to do it with Vegas. Besides I don't want those augmented Eidos lawyers to rip me a new hole... cause you know they will. o_o

@MajorD - No problem! While watching the video the Borg origins was the first thing that came to mind. It would interesting if a movie was made to tell the story of the "humble" beginnings of the Borg and how they evolved. Or perhaps Paramount could create a off-shoot television series. Perhaps the title could be Star Trek Origins: Borg. I know this did not work well for X-men Origins: Wolverine but it might work well for Star Trek. We know very little about the Borg and yet they're in the top 10 of favorite Trek villains AND Sci-fi villains in general. We know more about the Ferengi than the Borg. Anyhow I thought it would be cool to explore the Borg's past before they became an unstoppable Juggernaut.

"Human! We used to be exactly like them. Flawed. Weak. Organic. But we evolved to include the synthetic. Now we use both to attain perfection." - Borg Queen; First Contact.

If there was ever a story to show how Borg evolved DX3 would probably be the best blurb of their collective history. In the end an organic resistance was futile to their synthetic future.

8. Netflix Jul 2, 2011, 23:16 Kxmode
 
I don't know if anyone knew this but I just saw this today. Netflix has the entire series of Enterprise (HD), TOS (HD), TNG and Voyager available for streaming. I think it's only a matter of time before Deep Space Nine is added. I hope they eventually make TNG, Voyager and DS9 HD streams too. I liked Netflix in the past, but with this they are now officially the coolest service EVER!

As they prepared to sell their business they discovered preparations "A" through "G" were complete failures. However "H" looks like it'll be a winning success. Preparation "H" sounds good on the whole.

This goes true for a lot of the older games.. Some need re-mastering as it were.

Quake 1 looks like its going to be (although that Doom 3 mod Shamblers Castle is amazing). But others like Tie Fighter, Hexen, SOF 1&2, POD, and many others would really benefit from a remaster (Note: not Reboot). Some of those older classic games are hard to get running on a modern system these days, and when you do you wish they would look better even though the gameplay is still totally solid.

The gaming industry loves to copy Hollywood and visa versa. I think it's only a matter of time before they try to reboot some of their older classics. This message goes out to all developers considering the move. Please, please leave the gameplay as-is. All we want is updated graphics and music. Please do what LucasArts did for their Monkey Island reboots. I guarantee you will win a whole new generation of gamers with minimal development costs.

Is that a map of a "large" world?

Yup. The height is always the same, the only difference between small, medium, and large is the width.

Here's my house complete with catacombs!

Apparently you can create a map of your Terry world. This is the size of a typical Terry-generated world. I wish there was a way to generate a map without revealing the entire world. I want to explode and discover this for myself.

I thought the world was large but this is just MASSIVE!
