News Comments > Master of Orion Video Diary
4. Re: Master of Orion Video Diary Sep 10, 2015, 11:38 Burrito of Peace
 
The birth of something that defines an industry is not necessarily the first example of that industry. For example, there were cars made before the Model T but it was all the pieces that came together with the Model T that gave birth to the car; unified parts, assembly line production, volume production, durability, reliability, and a price point that the masses could afford.

I played VGA Planets as a kid, as well as other titles. But they all lacked that cohesiveness of parts, the production values, and that je ne sais quoi that Master of Orion had. It just felt and played like a much better game. While other games had 4X components to them, they didn't give birth to the genre like Master of Orion did.

sad story about o'donnell. i've always been slightly in awe of his work. sounds like bungie isn't the company i grew up with anymore either - no more innovative games like marathon or myth. i think jason jones' pure gameplay won out over the story/depth crowd.


Bungie wasn't the same company it was about the time Halo 2 shipped.

When I worked there, during the development of Halo 3, I found Marty to not just be an extraordinarily talented man, but a really nice man as well. He allowed me to sit in as an observer to learn how voice over work was done because I found it fascinating. The little riffs he would come up with just off the top of his head were amazing.

I think it was pretty obvious there were problems afoot when Joe Staten left. While he was one of four people that fleshed out the world of Halo, he was the guy who really held all the ideas.

I interacted with Harold Ryan on a number of occasions and the man was just flat out a dick. Rude and dismissive.

Well with sexual activities you really are just kinda One and Done for the day.

I'm assuming of course people are like me and over 30. Where your sex drive is kinda fading off slightly.


That's just you. It's never "one and done for the day" for me. For an hour, sure. I can sneeze and hit 40 right now, yet my sex drive is higher now than it was when I was in college.

While disappointing, I'd rather enjoy a well built and robust XCOM experience.

Hats off to the American and British passengers for quick action on that Islamo-facist who thought a train would be easy pickins. Well done Smart

Glad to see they took him down. Religion of peace my ass.

Same could have been said for Christianity. Can't account for crazy in every religion; they all have them, and at one time or another the crazies give the rest a bad name.

lolno

lolyes.

90 whole degrees for a blistering streak of 3 days! That's so cute.

It was already 80 on the way in to work at 0730.

The burrito one is stupid. If all you want is "maximum possible quantity", then sure, that method works. SOME corn is more than NO corn? You don't say!

The reasoning is simple: they don't know what all you'll order so they put the "normal" amount of each item in as you ask for it. There's no "trick" here. Do you want a huge burrito that's made of several things you don't want? If you already like all of their bean/rice/veggies, you're already getting the larger burrito and you will gain nothing from following his "tips".


This. Also, Chipotle is terrible. Freebirds FTW!

I have to agree with Axis that some of the "advice" in the article is pretty terrible.

The one that bothers me the most is "backup your data online". Sure, you could do that and expose your data to breaches, data mining, or just straight up internal snooping and internal theft. "B...b...but their EULA totally says that they won't look at my sutff!" Yeah, and I have a bridge in Brooklyn to sell you really cheap, too. Also, if you read that EULA carefully (and you probably didn't) you'll notice about six whole sections dedicated to telling you how you indemnify them against any damages as a result of any of the above actions.

If you don't outright own the device or service that your data is stored on, you don't control it and you are willingly trading your privacy for convenience. In my book, that makes you more than stupid, that makes you an idiot.

In addition, we need to start teaching users the principle of least privilege. It blows my mind that twenty years later, we're still letting Windows users run as administrators full time. You don't need administrative rights for every second that you're using a computer. In fact, you should have as little access as possible; only that which is necessary for you to complete your task. Is someone really going to try to make the argument that they need access to policy editing and disk management just to play The Witcher 3?

The use of the phrase "rogue-like" means an instant ignore from me. It's now as passe and overused as all the 8 bit crap that was being shoveled out last year.
