SWTOR is some sort of KOTOR with solid PvE quests. I will grind my way through, probably only to become deeply depressed for not playing a solid Kotor 3 but this MMO crap instead. Life is unfair!! *whine*

Which is why 'they' are working very hard to cripple them before the masses even realize they are here along with their potential. One way or another, they will be kept out of the hands of the common person(price), or if not they will be crippled so badly it won't matter(DRM'd).
Too late. The tech is out and you cannot control everything. There are 3D printers, which are just using sand, software and focused sun light to "sinter" objects. Cheap and easy to build, the controlling software is Open Source. Ideal for underdeveloped countries. Maybe 3D printers will be controllable in the western countries. But not for long, not for all eternity.

Heck, even the once mighty christian church couldnt prevent the crossbow from making powerful knights on horses an easy practise target. The church used to excommunicate everyone who used or built a crossbow. With little to no effect at all. Because the crossbow was way to useful. And the moment 3D printers become useful for the masses, for private households, for small companies ... no DRM, no regulation can stop that. History repeats itself, a new technology will change human society.

I dont know if this change will be good or bad from our current point of view. But it will happen!

I blame 3D printers
3D printers are the new WMDs of the Digital Age. No, i mean it. Seriously. 3D printers WILL change our economical and sociological structure in ways we cant imagine.

This is necessary to fight the rampant hardware piracy the industry is facing today. People just copy a mouse from their workplace or friends, on the Internet millions of copied mouse hardware, worth a few billion dollars, are distributed freeley. This HAS to stop!

I have always loved THQ.
You love a company? A company which has ripped off a talented studio like Iron Lore and lied about the reason for their closure? A company which made a small fortune from selling Titan Quest online as a budget title, giving its former studio employees not one single dime?

Yeah, but you just love that company ... they DESERVE to go under. Fast!

What the game needed was a complete overhaul of its direction. They should have focused on the strategic elements of guerrilla warfare, with the player starting with a home base and reclaiming the country, one area at a time. Players would have to manage resources and decide which targets to prioritize. Do you liberate a prison camp and gain more recruits for the cause? Doing so will give you more soldiers, doctors, mechanics, etc, but will also increase the drain on your food, medicine and shelter space. If someone gets captured by the enemy, do you risk more lives trying to free him? If you don't, what happens if he cracks under interrogation and reveals the location of your home base? Maybe you play it safe and just assassinate him so he can't talk, but what happens when your group learns of it?
Red Faction Guerilla comes to mind. Suprisingly interesting shooter, doing what you are suggesting.

Anyone tried the WCs on recent hardware? Do they run fullscreen? And if so, does it look like a mess (stretching a low screen rez that far)?
WC 1-3 are running with DOSBox, so its up to you with fullscreen/windowed/stretching/screen ratio. WC 4 is the (once) rare DVD version. Runs fullscreen, keeps aspect ratio (or not) with your GPU drivers

Seriously, I am flabberghasted. I never realized the election system in the USA is that .... messy
This is what you get, when you are the pinnacle of democracy and freedom. There is no need for fixing or improvement, because it already is perfect. And therefore no one really cares.

The first step in becoming irrelevant is proclaiming to be number one. And the US just did that over and over again. Until proclaiming to be number one was more important than actually doing something to BE number one.

btw, doom movie was great. not sure what you were expecting, but for me i was not expecting too much for it to match the game or anything; i just enjoyed it. The Rock was great, and in general was a good movie if you don't analyze it too much.
Yeah, i agree. If you didnt watch the Doom movie, it was not that bad. It started to slide when you actually saw it. Horrible, cheap and (whats worst) boring piece of crap.

Good. Stick with what you know. Adventure games they know. MMOs they don't.
Dreamfall was the worst "adventure" i ever had the honor to play. Good story and production values, but horrible gameplay.

It seems that if you want to play the game with improved graphics, it's good, but if you want all the content and a more robust game, the original is still better.
If you have the original Painkiller or the Black Edition, there is really no "need" at all to buy this remake. Painkiller is no old DOS game with a 320x200 resolution and 256 colors. The graphical improvements are superficial, this remake looks like an UT3 total conversion with all its blurry shaders and vaseline full screen effects. Well, if you need that, then suit yourself. If not, just skip it.

Do they want that? I have never gotten that impression. I also don't get how consoles are dead to them. It's all they ever talk about. They pay good lip service to the PC when it makes them look benevolent but that's it.
Sry, my bad. I meant to the investors consoles are dead, because this platform is no longer a growth platform. Earning a shitload of money is of no interest to them. All they care is the short term growth of their investment. So they will pull out after the new console generation probably will fail in generating enough revenue growth.

Diversification sends them packing. It's better to bet on 3 or 4 massive 'AAA' titles a year, rather than to have 3 or 4 times that number of mid-budget titles across several genres. If it's not selling like CoD, it's not selling.
It's not like they do not want that. The majors cant go back anymore.

They have to deliver a huge revenue growth or else ... the investors will pull out. Which they will do anyway because the near hysterical growth rates of the recent decade cant be reproduced anymore. The market is saturated and no new console can change that. Sure, you can still make millions of dollars with console games, make a hefty profit, but there is no more additional growth. And therefore consoles are dead to them.

Unfortunately, it absolutely will not play under Win 7 or on modern video cards.
The original release will not work, yes. But the GOG release seem to run without any problems.

I don't know why people keep blaming him for the mediocre games the rest of id keeps making with his engines.
Because he's the public face of id. Which is good for people like Willits or Todd Hollenshead, who are, in my opinion, mainly responsible for the downfall of id Software. A mediocre game designer and a mediocre business man.

Such a difference a year or so makes. WoW threads get 0 comments, and Diablo 3 threads get 90% negative comments.
Thats because people know what to expect from WoW. Its WoW. There isnt much to discuss. Either you like or you dont like it.

But people expected D3 to be a more modern, prettier D2. Instead they got something which might be ok when the game was called something different than D3. They bitch.
