"I donít play video games."

You don't play pro tennis anymore either.

So the guy plays video games in his spare time. And I guess he's not the stereotypical slob on the couch playing games if he's able to perform at #1 in UK tennis. Be glad he doesn't get bored and spend all his free time boozing and doing drugs. It's alot easier to walk away from games than drugs, especially if you get jaded. Enjoy it while the feeling lasts.

Yeah, almost done... just a few more tweaks.. a little more polish... just one more engine revision.

There. That should cover George B. comments for the next 5 years.

Sure. Throw in the IP for Myth and we'll trade you Gearbox for Bungie.

How petty, selfish, vindictive, and egomaniacal do you have to be to not even put the names of a few people in the credits of your game?

It does sound kinda spiteful for them to do this. I can only assume there must have been some sort of problem with certain personnel. In any case, I was already uninterested in RvR 2.0. I still feel burnt out on DAoC and I haven't played it in years. This just makes it even easier to ignore it.

The game will get mods whether they officially support it or not. If it really does look like Oblivion with guns, then it might not be that difficult to do (especially if they don't bother trying to differentiate it from Oblivion tools/resources).

Even more strangely, when was the last time a mainstream non-gaming outlet paid any attention to PC-only games? Granted, it's a AAA title, but it's still unusual.

I think that's an unexpected side effect of console gaming going mega-mainstream with more people than ever getting a taste of gaming. With all these new gamers waiting for the next console AAA title, they're more likely to pay attention to AAA PC titles as well. That, and Blizzard's World of Warcraft being a big market to tap into for other games.

News Comments > Gold - Spore
40. Re: DRM Aug 14, 2008, 22:34 MMORPGHoD
 
As for Spore, for a game with so much hype, we've really not seen ANYTHING new in what... a year or so? That's usually not a good sign. It's like EA and Maxis know that there's very little actual gameplay in it, and just hope to sell a shitload of copies off the hype alone before words gets out that it's a level of pacman, a level of marginal civ and a creature creator, and that's it.

My thoughts exactly. It's not a good sign. Let's hope we're wrong, but unfortunately the odds are on the side of suckiness lately.

Link or it isn't true.

See? Suckiness is in abundance these days.

Don't have very good vibes about this at all. Gamerankings.com has nothing recent and all the previews are from 2005. For something that has just gone gold, there's very little out there in actual gameplay details that's recent. That usually means it's going to disappoint.. and they know it.

News Comments > Khronos Hopes for More Streamlined OpenGL 3.1
4. Re: Games vs. CAD Aug 14, 2008, 13:39 MMORPGHoD
 
probably, because it isn't for just CAD

OK. Let me rephrase:

Just state OpenGL is for CAD development isn't for PC game development and be done with it.

I think DirectX has no real competition

Exactly. DX10 may have been disappointing to gamers including myself, but it's at least focused on PC gaming. OpenGL isn't nor would I expect it to be in the future. And I say that as someone who was hoping to see OpenGL offer some sort of alternative to Microsoft's offerings. Not gonna happen.

What I don't understand is, why are they continuing to give game developers false hope? Stop stringing them along. Just state OpenGL is for CAD development and be done with it. They aren't fooling anyone anymore.

18. Re: Square pegs, round holes Aug 12, 2008, 14:43 MMORPGHoD
 
PS3 uses OpenGL ES.

Isn't that essentially a stripped down OpenGL API? Not that OpenGL ES is going to be of any help to PC gaming. Maybe OpenGL ES is more likely to push the envelope for gaming if that's what Sony's next console will be using for SDKs. Otherwise, I'd expect MS to outpace them in API development and capability with DX11+ for their next iteration.

16. Re: Square pegs, round holes Aug 12, 2008, 14:14 MMORPGHoD
 
Given that id is looking to the console market, the recent developments of OpenGL to retain their existing CAD developer base while basically telling game developers "go away, we're not the API you're looking for", the need to support DX if you're ever going to support the 360, and yadda yadda yadda.. can you blame Carmack? I can't. He stuck by OpenGL longer than most and from a business point of view, probably longer than he should have. The OpenGL gang is happy milking what they have.

1. API war Aug 12, 2008, 11:45 MMORPGHoD
 
The war was already lost, unfortunately. Even the marginal improvements of DX10 weren't enough to bring OpenGL back in the picture as far as games are concerned. OpenGL will stay primarily a CAD API and that sucks. I don't expect much in the future from DX without any competition. Any major improvements will be console driven.

100 PSP owners, 45 of them have DS, 45%.

200 DS owners, 42 of them have PSP 21%.. or to match that 45 PSP number, 210 DS owners and 45 PSP for 21%.

There are more DS owners out there than PSP, with a ratio of around 2:1. Even if the owners completely overlapped, you'd have 100% of PSP owners that also have a DS and 50% of DS owners that also have a PSP.

edit: pretty much what blue said

I owned a Audigy 2 until I was fed up with driver issues and crashes. Part of the problem is at the time there weren't any alternatives that provided the same support. I ended up changing to a M-Audio Revolution 7.1, even though it wasn't a gaming card, supporting only up to EAX2. It was however, stable. I had thought my next card was going with the much improved on-board audio chips, but I ended up getting a good deal on a Razer Barracuda AC-1 on Woot. So far I'm happy with it.

Gotta love comments by clueless jackasses that don't play the game. Yes, there's maybe three servers that have what I would call a "robust" population. But the fact remains, it's a minority of people that want server mergers. But as is the norm in any MMO, the ones that cry and complain the loudest will get heard, if for any other reason to shut their whiny asses the fuck up.

Come, boy, see for yourself. From here, you will witness the final destruction of SWG and the end of your insignificant server population. You want this, don't you?

The hate is swelling in you now. Take your PC keyboard. Use it. I am unarmed. Flame me now with it. Give in to your anger! With each passing moment you make yourself more my servant.
