If I were them I would have left the resume blank and acted like a brand new thing.

I know right? Loki and World of Warcraft. That's like saying, "We're going to make cars. We have engineers from Rolls Royce and Ford." What kind of Frankenstein ride would that be?

Here's an example of what happens when a veteran Star Citizen backer tries to ask legitimate questions about delivery and project scope.

Despite the Moderator's "Topic has been answered. Thread closed". Looking back at the replies the questions where actually never answered. I believe Tracker came closest to some sort of answer.

Why is this on Bluesnews? It's been available for like 2+ years now.

I heard about the site from a coworker today and thought it was definitely worth sending to Blue. There's more than a few of you who are current or former pen-and-paper gamers.

That's wonderful that you know about it. Posting it on Blues News will make it known to more gamers especially those who have yet to try pen and paper gaming. I know some of you are burnt out on MMOs. Why not try an "old school MMO"?

Plus you can ask the DM to roll the die to see if you're getting drunk! Drunk2

I bought my Ethiopian friend lunch the other day, he often acts like a baby, can that count as my contribution?

It can. I take back everything I said.

Of all the films on that list I liked Transcendence the most. It felt like a science fiction film. It made me think about a lot of things. It made me feel for the antagonist who actually turns out to be the protagonist.

Well, I did spend over $1,000 on subscriptions for WoW -- but it was a game I was actually playing!

I honestly hope you get your money's worth. Because if you do, it will mean it's a good game and I'll be playing it too.

I better or else Chris Roberts is dead to me and I will make it my mission to flame everything he ever done past, present and future. Not to mention that I may seek a class action lawsuit against him if he doesn't deliver. According to Kickstarter the game was promised November 2014.

I've been deep in the timesink known as Elite: Dangerous. It's not on Steam. Kbai.

Steam has turned into the equivalent of Apple for indie developers. Valve has WAY too many restrictions on joining their network, the least of which Valve gets a hefty cut of every game sold.

I'm a Veteran backer since 1/22/2013 (back when SC had around $5.5M)
https://robertsspaceindustries.com/citizens/HydraClawe

I've drop $930.00. I own these ships: Cutlass, Aurora, Freelancer, 350R, M50, Hornet Ghost, Avenger, Starfarer, Herald

I'm not dropping another dime on this game until Chris tells HOW MUCH TOTAL he needs to make this game. It feel like a money sink.

13. Blizzard's Overwatch Jan 2, 2015, 02:51 Kxmode
 
Everyone was trying to predict what "Titan" was from Blizzard's 10K filing. On March 4, 2010 I predicted the following on BluesNews...


You're thinking too small. Look at the larger picture. What multiplayer genre is hot right now? First-person shooters. It also happens to be an untapped genre within the MMO sphere. Iím not discrediting Planetside, Global Agenda, and trivial Asian titles but I am saying thereís no one game pulling people like WOW does. Blizzard has never made a FPS title. I think they're ready to branch out into new ground both literally and figuratively. I believe Blizzard's Nextgen MMO will be a FIRST-PERSON SHOOTER.

Mark today's date! You heard it from me first. Just wait...


Over 4 years later Blizzard releases a trailer for Overwatch; a multiplayer FPS. While Overwatch is not an MMO as I had predicted this article clearly shows that Blizzard's cancelled MMO Titan eventually became Overwatch.

This is the second time I've predicted correctly Blizzard releases. The first was Wrath of the Lich King a few days after TBC was released. Although I believe at the time I called it World of Warcraft: Northrend.

To all the naysayers who didn't believe me when I predicted Titan as a FPS MMO and Wrath of the Lich King: you can go suck it. That's 2 correct Blizzard predictions.

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?
