I just can't summon the energy to care. To me, this just seems like more puppet theater. Was it real? Was it not? Don't we have more pressing domestic concerns at this point?

We can only hope. Enough with the carbon copy, jingoistic FPSes.

I hope it is nothing like Hot Pursuit. That game sucked so much ass, it might as well have been developed by a scatophilia group.

Like Auto Assault?

I don't know exactly why it didn't succeed, but it was tried :)

Auto Assault didn't succeed because of the following, in my opinion:

1. It was very clear that the towns were tacked on at the last second.
2. The game was not particularly fun as it turned in a circle-strafe fest.
3. The environment and lore was very, very thin. No real hook to get you involved.
4. The secondary ambiance of the world, audio, was also very thin.
5. Like all grindfest MMOs, there were far too many parts that had fractional value higher than what you already possessed.

With Interstate '76, it did all of those things very well. That's why it was memorable and Auto Assault has been largely forgotten.

I hope it is not in the dire sense that some are taking it to mean. In general, I dislike playing with other players as virtually killing someone holds no interest for me.

News Comments > X Rebirth Announced
4. Re: X Rebirth Announced Apr 20, 2011, 18:12 Burrito of Peace
 
Let me start off by saying I have loved the X series since the first game. However, by "transport the multi-award-winning series to another dimension with radically new game design" I hope they mean "An actual game instead of an Excel spreadsheet with pretty, graphical layover". Once you got an industrial empire set up, it became a job in and of itself.

I hope they take the X series more in the direction of Privateer and Freelancer. Also, let's not have any more of the Ka'ak. That joke is getting pretty thin.

And it's well deserved.

TDU2 is basically nothing more than a Facebook "ville" game for the 360.

News Comments > GOG.com: DRM Causes Piracy
33. Re: GOG.com: DRM Causes Piracy Apr 12, 2011, 12:56 Burrito of Peace
 
I am a pirate. I got tired of being ripped off. Apparently, descender feels it's completely acceptable for publishers to rip off customers but finds it abhorrent when the tables are turned.

Gaming journalism is either outright purchased propaganda or completely disingenuous. I know a few brave souls like JaguarUSAF do independent reviews but those are hard to come by and, of course, they are limited to the games they purchase themselves.

However, piracy lets me try the game without the hassle of DRM or walled garden demos. Because of this, I have come to embrace Steam and, in the last six months, I have purchased 21 games.

I am aware that the plural of anecdote is not data. I can only say that, in my case, piracy has generated sales.

"It has to be by creating or finding products that will make the difference and will be recognised as the best products in the industry

Like your award winning, craptastic DRM?

It's pretty easy to go to number three when the only people you are really competing against is EA and Activision due to industry attrition.

I am aware that C++ != C#. I was just saying that it sparked a parallel interest.

10. Re: Unreal Engine Trailer Apr 6, 2011, 15:11 Burrito of Peace
 
I did not say it did. However, this line from their programming documentation; "UDK relies solely on the use of UnrealScript while licensees can use UnrealScript in conjunction with native C++ code" got me to thinking.

So I decided to become at least competent in both for a project that I want to create.

It was this video, and the demo video, that got me interested in the UDK. Ultimately, it also led me to begin learning C# so I could take better advantage of the kit.
