Reminds me of Dungeon Master from 1987/88 where we had different attacks, and even attacks based on the weapon type. Bash/slash/thrust, etc.. Finally after 23 years it's being rediscovered.

The larger problem is that in 99% of metro areas there is only 1 option for broadband. I don't consider DSL broadband.

Not only that, but it's a government mandate. I'm not too informed with the Canadian system but if it's like it is down here, then in my opinion, these laws are woefully outdated. They might have been necessary in the 1960's and 1970's, but no more. It's a dinosaur and it should mostly be eliminated but now it's the status-quo.

That's one of the big problems with using government to solve problems. It's very difficult to change or adapt to an ever-changing world. That's especially true with technology. That's why I think further regulation is a very bad idea. It just locks things into place when what we need is flexibility. Government is the antithesis of flexible. Governments like perpetuity and inflexible laws and they think and act as if they know what's best for many decades. That's the problem right there.

You can't just go out and start a new ISP, the infrastructure costs are prohibitive.

What? That is not true. That's like saying no one can just go out and start a new game company because the costs are prohibitive. Capital investment is how an economy functions. There's no law that says an ISP must invest a billion dollars to start. They can and often do start small. Infinity Ward did that. Blizzard did that. They are both huge now, but started smaller. Same works with any business.

And the only way out is heavy gov't regulation to keep the ISPs from pulling shit like this.

I was reading your post in agreement and like 'America! Fuck yeah!' but then the last sentence was a perfect anti-climax! The Only Way Out (TM)? Do you realize that the corporate oligarchy loves regulation because they often write the regulations and benefit from them? Netflix is really demanding to enter the Oligarchy here.

The corporate oligarchy, as you put it so well, would include Netflix once regulations are enacted to benefit them. So it seems to me your solution is to expand the Corporate Oligarchy instead of reducing or eliminating it.

Why not work and advocate for a "real market" (as you nicely put it) where competition and consumer choice decide what choices we get?

It's been a long time but iirc I liked FHmod much more than EoD. DC was better still. But that was 5+ years ago and maybe EoD is far better now.

Nah, if there were 32 players on I'd install 1942 and the mod, but... Even an ant farm would be more fun. Err, I mean, tasty.

I've got to try this. Haven't played 1942 in over 5 years.

The problem is are there still people playing this mod online?

Good question. I think there are only 6 people playing this mod right now.

I think their philosophy towards microtransactions - "...not requiring you to spend additional money to play the game and not making the game difficult or painful to play in order to encourage you to buy things from the store..." is very reasonable for a MMO that's free to play.

Good I hope so. LOTRO is bad in this regard. They make you buy game functions that should really be part of the game anyway. They should make it so that you buy things like forming your own guild, enhanced friends and auction tools, etc, but the base game should be the same.

Sorry to hear Half Elf. I was firmly in the 'not buying' camp from my experience buying (at full price) Splash Damage's ET:QW flop. And that game sure is/was terrible. They've had them for $4 at micro center here for over a year and people won't even buy them at that price. The ideas might have been fine, but the execution was awful.

Yeah it would be much more interesting if they beefed up many parts of the vanilla game and sold it as a DLC. I'd buy that. But not some half-assed 2hr mission that doesn't jibe with the original game.

Okay I'm picking nits maybe but I think 2005 was too early and it wasn't until 2007 that these consoles had full momentum. I think we're still in the lag and that we aren't yet seeing full PC momentum. I'm thinking BF3/Diablo III and some other upcoming titles will improve things. Witcher 2 will help also...

There are some huge pluses on the PC and I'm very glad Capcom is seeing at least some of that. I had feared their mixed (at best) reception in '08 with AoC might scare them away.

There would be some good things to come out of a complete and total dollar collapse. Namely, federal nonsense like this would hopefully end.

Reports I hear are that the game is very linear but has fun combat and decent story. It may be the Freemason's response to Assassin's Creed, story-wise. AC made the Templars out to be bad guys, iirc.
