I guess we should add sarcasm to the list of things that we're no longer allowed to use in posts.

That edit was absolutely ridiculous and unnecessary, especially given the text at the bottom.

I remember reading where Virginia Heinlein saying that L. Ron Hubbard started Scientology on a bet between himself, Asimov and Robert Heinlein.

That it was the only way you could print your own money in the modern era.

WOOT!

Saints Row has always been a far more enjoyable game, to me, than GTA. Pure mayhem fun.

Also, Johnny Gat is awesome.

I don't know a single person that actually finished Bad Company 2's single player. Sometimes, who gives a crap?

Now, you do.

Is the cel-shaded look from the screenshots due to wanting to have a lower point of entry to include older system and/or lower spec machines?

But making levels that look like worlds rather than levels is insanely time consuming.

I imagine it is.

However, and correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't that one of the ideas behind Rage and megatextures? To make world building a faster and easier process?

Further, isn't that also one of the ideas behind procedurally generated content? Admittedly, that tech is in an extremely nascent stage but it's still a genesis.

The reason games are shorter now is because they're harder/more expensive to make and the development cycles aren't that much longer than they were back in the "old days."

I am not entirely sure this is accurate. With modern APIs making things like sound card interrupt nightmares a thing of the past, unified engine choices (UT, Rage/IdTech, et al) and statistics of hardware usage (Like Steam's surveys), I can imagine that modern day developers have it easier in many ways.

Now, the fact that they choose to cater to eye candy/graphics whores is just that, their choice. I think games like Braid, Angry Birds and both Humble Indie Bundles show that you can make money without pandering to that specific demographic.

In fact, I think there is probably a very large segment of the market that is underserved because they don't want to play Call of Halo Duty Speed.

While the plural of anecdote is not data, I recently went back and reinstalled all three Homeworlds to play because there isn't a single modern title out that even comes close to being as enjoyable as those games and in that genre. They're long as Hell and interesting for the most part.

Doesn't matter WHAT they are working on, it's just AWESOME that a internship is done in his name.

Sides THQ owns the rights to the Homeworld IP.

I'd care, even were I dead. The last thing I would want is my memorial being Extreme Truckers 3: Belching down the Beltway.

Hopefully those Brian Wood Memorial Game Fund Interns are working on something good, like Homeworld 3.

I saw some stuttering when panning the camera around the battlefield.

I'm hoping that was just a product of video compression as E:TW had some horrific problems with framerates on my machine in the beginning.

So you can add different skins to your cars. It's not that much different than what you could do in Midnight Club LA.

...racing games...

My wheel and pedal set disagree. Any one seriously in to racing simulators and even arcade games has a wheel and pedal setup.

Gamepad racing is for console kiddies.
