Huh? Isnt this like a few years late to the party?
No. Because the point of this editor isn't Quake, but the UI concept behind it. Quake is just used, because its well documented and easy to implement.

Well these two guys were responsible for the CoDs that didnt suck.
The first one? Because ... the second one had stupid auto-heal, stupid "we color the screen red instead of showing you precisly how much damage you have taken" and stupid waves and waves of endless spawning enemies unless you triggered the right script. Since CoD 2 this series was lost to me.

EA acquired them in 92, Ultima IX released in 97. I think a better question would be what changed at Origin that EA needed to put it's own clueless producers on projects they had no business being involved with.
Ultima Online happened during the developement of U9. EA feared that Origin did not have enough talent to create both games at the same time, because UO required more and more staff from the U9 team, pushing the release further and further back. So they send in Ed to help organize and finish U9, but sadly no one told him what Ultima was all about. And in the end Garriott fired him and took over, shoving this developement fiasco quickly out of the door, just to have more free ressources to work on UO.

Why teens are tiring of Facebook.

They are getting older and smarter and realising they want a job one day and pictures of them probably aren't good on the internet....a number of reasons....their friends have been let go from jobs or not gotten jobs, they now know that all of the stuff on facebook can only hurt them.
They realize, that "Friends" are not friends.

I don't play as much games as I used to but that's by choice as I get older. I still love games. Your post appears to suggest, in a very cryptic manner, that gamers are different now than what they used to be. I don't think that's true really.
There is no longer a monolithic group of people who share the same gaming experience. I do not have anything in common with someone who just wants to shoot something from his couch after work in a scripted CoD campaign. Yet we both are called gamers and everyone assumes we share some common gaming interests. WE DO NOT!

After having established this, i dont feel hate from the majors towards their demographic because i'm no longer part of it. I simply do not care if EA or Ubisoft make games or go bancrupt. These companies no longer offer me anything i would like to have. And i have no need for a new generation of consoles. Last year i bought a PS2 and i'm having so much fun discovering and playing all those nippon RPGs. Only with the back catalogue from the PS2 i'm set for years. And there are new indie games, new kickstarter projects to fund or to await.

So, if MS, Sony and Nintendo in cooperation with the major publisher all declare "war" on their customers just because they can ... I DO NOT CARE AT ALL! I have my games that i like. I will have A LOT of new games i would like, offered with reasonable prices, without DRM or any snake oil DLC scheme behind them.

This part of the gaming industry i do like. The other part? Beats me, it no longer has any relevance to me.

The gaming industry evolves. There are the majors and their consumer base, for whom gaming is like any other form of entertainment. For these people there is no difference between going to the movies, watching TV or playing a gaem. Its all the same.

And then there are indies and niche publishers, who cater to the more demanding audience, who view games as a "serious" hobby, who are interested in games beyond the act of just gaming them.

Different companies, different business strategies and a different customer base with only minor overlappings. There is no more "I play and love every game there is!". Gaming has become diversified, gamers have become diversified. A 10 year old Halo player with his 360 has nothing in common with a 40 year old dad playing a flight simulation like Warthog on his PC.

Therefore the headline "The Games Industry Hates Gamers And It Needs To Change" is just making some false general assumptions. There is no more "The Games Industry". There are no more "The Gamers".

Even if it's not Ultima in name and he can't get the rights he knows what everyone wants so just fucking make it!
I had my fun with all Ultima games, even UO. Two years ago i started replaying them. Right now i'm hacking my way across mars with Martian Dreams. I played the remakes made with Dungeon Siege. I play U9 on a regular basis, trying out new restoration mods. I am content, i made my peace. Ultima is finished, its over. Let it rest.

And i dont think that Garriott is able to recreate the same amount of magic and fun he created back in the days with the help of people like Warren Spector and other Origin employees. He had his time, i thank him for that. But as with Ultima, just let the man fly to space and make stupid social games to finance this awesome hobby.

Recent games like Assassin's Creed 3 and Far Cry 3 took advantage of DX11 features and really had a lot of effort put in.
A lot of effort? A variety of people experiencing a lot (!) of technical problems with these two games might think otherwise.

Confusion in the console world: Publishers suddenly scream "PIRATES PC PLAYERS WE LURVE YOU PLEEEZE PLAY OUR GAMEZ! PLEEZZ??"

In 2014, the rhetoric will be "TEH CONSOLES ARE TEH BESTEST FUCK TEH PC PLAYERS PIRATES!"
Yupp. Its only marketing. Nothing more.

Oh well, lessons learned for the future hopefully.
One might learn, but i dont know. Remember the Postmortem of Alpha Protocol, where it was said that the game suffered heavily from different opinions between Obsidians producer and SEGAs management on what kind of game AP should be? Same story with A:CM

Not to mention visuals are the least of biowares problems in it's recent games (ME3, TOR, DA2, etc). They need to seriously get their priorities in order.
After the invention of the AWESOME button Bioware finally can start focusing on visuals!

Thats nice for Demolition Derby fans, but i would prefer a proper Flatout 3. Heck, if there might be a way to buy back the franchise name via Kickstarter and force Strategy First to remove everything related to "their" Flatout 3 ... i would back the hell out of my credit card.

Some people are emotional dependent on games. They CANNOT act otherwise, even when they exactly know what they are doing.

Pure PR spin - it doesnt actually say anything or promise anything specific.
Yep, just some words. I want to see deeds from Ubi. Like, not putting features in their games which do only work when connected. Features, which are essential in later game play stages like in Anno 2070.

Well, seeing as this is an extended tech demo, I'm not interested at all either, so I don't really care too much
Crysis is always good for a cheap Steam sale. Snatched Crysis 2 for a few bucks some weeks ago. Max. settings are too much for my current hardware, but i was suprised how "not bad" Crysis 2 looks, when you lower the graphic settings. In most games you get a horrible mess of lowres textures and bland, static lighting because all the jizz was in the shaders you switched off, but Crysis 2 ... still looks respectable with lower settings. From a technical standpoint, not bad, not bad at all.

Yeah, gameplay & story are, as always, boring as hell, but i didnt bought this game for gaming

Yeah exactly. The Aliens in the films are not bro fodder, they were smart and worked around obstacles, constantly outwitting the humans.

You might have missed the director's cut of Aliens then. Because the turret scene where they just charge up the tunnel getting constantly mowed down is exactly the type of scene you're saying didn't happen.
It's not only this scene. The whole movie consists of battling groups of normal Alien warriors. The only "intelligent" alien was the Queen.

In fact, Camerons "Aliens" was heavily critisized for that, reducing The Monster from the first movie to a simple practice target.
