How long did that Red Faction TV show on SyFy last?

I remember making it through the first episode and being struck by how cheesy the acting was and how hackneyed the writing was.

Bioware came too late in the RPG genre for me to find them "OMGWOWWTFBBQ".

yeah, except for the entirety of D&D-based games, with the exception of the Gold Boxes, they sure did come too late.

^m^

For me, as I said, they were too late to the game. I no longer had the time to sink hours upon hours in to them as I had with Dungeon Master, The Bard's Tale and, the last RPG I dumped a ridiculous amount of hours in to, Ultima VII.

I guess if you were a tween or in your early teens, they were the in the right time frame for you.

All the old companies you know and loved, id, Bethsoft, Bioware, et al. are all over and done and have been for some time now.

I don't really care about id as they haven't been relevant to me since Doom 2 and Bioware came too late in the RPG genre for me to find them "OMGWOWWTFBBQ".

However, Bethesda has been around for a very long time and, if anything, I think they're better and stronger today than they ever were. Skyrim is, by far, the greatest game they've ever released.


Did any of you ever play The Terminator, Terminator 2029, Delta V or any of their games that weren't TES based? They were either horrible or bitch-and-a-half's to even get working in the first place. Being purchased by Zenimax and being held accountable for making good games has given Bethesda the direction they needed to harness what is obviously a large pool of very real talent.

Racist might not be the right word, but its close enough to the attitude they are holding, which is discriminatory.

I know if someone said that shit where I'm working at I'd have their ass fired. Call me cruel or whatever but what they are saying is the same thing as someone saying "Oh well that city is full of hard criminals and has a huge crime rate" simply because there's Africans living there.

Actually, I think they're saying what they're saying because the data shows that's where a large majority of gold-farming and account thefts originate in.

It's like saying that I'm racist toward black people because I don't want to start a business in Detroit due to its rampant urban decay and sky high crime rate. How the Hell does that makes sense? In short, it doesn't.

Of course it's discriminatory and it's discriminatory in, what they consider, the best interests of their property and their paying customers. That's legal and generally good business sense. Protect and reward your paying customers and do your best to prevent disruptive and damaging behavior by third parties.

...racist...

That word, I do not think it means what you think it means.

If only for the simple fact that, in the regions listed, you have people of Caucasian, Arab, Asian, Polynesian and African descent.

So which of those five races are they being racist toward?

Assuming you have all the tools, materials, and experience to do either of those. Personally, I'm 0 for 3 on that list.

Tools and Materials: Home Depot, Lowes, Hardware store of your choice.

Experience: Everyone starts with zero. However, PVC is by far the easiest pipe type to cut and fit. There's also Google and most people have either a tablet, laptop, smartphone or printer handy.

Only thing stopping you from performing such an easy job: You.

When we bought our first home, I knew how to do yardwork, install a toilet from the flange up and some basic electrical work. That's about it. In that house, I learned how to do so much more because, quite frankly, we were poor and couldn't afford a service company to come out and fix all our problems. There are some situations worth calling an electrician for, such as installing 50 amp service, and those that are not, such as hanging a fan in a room where the overhead box wasn't designed for a fan.

Believe it or not, above foundation plumbing is some of the easiest work you can do yourself. Just takes a bit of flexibility, patience, problem solving and courage to tackle the unknown.

Why not use the main water shutoff, for overnight?

I was thinking the same, then just cut below the sink and add a shut off? *shrugs*

It takes about 15 minutes to sweat in a shut off valve if it's copper and less than that if it's PVC. Hacksaw, shut-off valve and the Oatey cleaner and primer/glue kit.

I tried it out for a bit and wasn't very impressed. It was like this weird hybrid between a Choose Your Own Adventure book in the RPG segment, the Disciples games in map movement and Total War in terms of combat. It isn't quite successful as, to me, they didn't flow from one mechanic to the next very smoothly.

However, if you haven't played their RTS mechanics previously, they so generously point you to YouTube links.

Sorry, lazy developer, if you could make a tutorial for your map movement then you could have made a tutorial for the battle segment as well.

I won't be purchasing it and I can't recommend it either.

Even though I'd rather see a "serious" space sim, I am glad to see space shooters becoming more commonplace. That means we're that much closer to Freelancer 2.

We don't own space shooters but we have an understanding with those who do.

What? THQ has nothing to do with either of those series. Homeworld was published by Sierra, which was bought by Vivendi...

Negative, Ghost Rider, the pattern is full. In 2007, THQ acquired the rights to the Homeworld series.

If its not about making a good product then why do millions of people play them?

Ask Zynga. How many people still play "game"-ville, Mafia Wars and crap like that?

Popularity does not equate to quality. The Pinto, for example, was at one time wildly popular.

Yes, a business is run to make a profit. However, even in business there is a notion called "ethics". Bill Roper made a profit with Flagship Studios. Is what he did with Hellgate London and its customers ethical in terms of good will, good faith, long term profitability and brand trust?

This happens very often, in many MMOs.

You'd think that developers would learn from past mistakes then, wouldn't you?

Alas, no. MMOs are not, in general, and never have been about making a good product. They're always cash grabs that see the "developer" riding it down to the bitter end, shutting down the studio and then opening up under a new name for yet another MMO cash grab. Lather, rinse and repeat.

Any action taken by a player within the systems and mechanics created by the developer which in any way possibly threatens that monetary stream is consistently met with a draconian response. Why? Because, again, it's not about the game and never was. It's not about the player base. That's all bullshit window dressing.

The one thing I'll give CCP is that they are one of the few honest MMO purveyors. They largely don't give a fuck what you do in Eve so long as the cash keeps rolling in.

Over the Christmas break, my Dad's account was hacked and 6000+ points were jacked from his account along with the account itself.

He plays on Live with exactly two other people, myself and my brother. His email is unique and his password is not one that you would easily break with a brute force dictionary attack.

MS has been compromised but, after seeing what happened with the PSN, they're clearly not going to announce that they have been.

Respect to you as well, but there is no way to do it wrong. A horrid UI and using a controller which makes the simplest of tasks a chore can make even a simple scheme unpleasant to use.

Nothing beats a true media center; this generation's consoles are way behind by my experience.

Except you weren't originally discussing the experience of "which is better". You described it as a near impossible chore, which it isn't.

Certainly, you may not prefer the UI and control mechanism (of which a controller is only one of several on the 360), but preference does not equate to difficulty.

The fact is that it's no harder than three button pushes and two movements on a 360 controller (ignoring the other two mainstream control options) to get a movie streaming over it. Hell, it's easier than finding and selecting a show on a cable box.
