Again Herzog Zwei was i believe the first actual RTS as we know it today

A lot of people would disagree with that. I, for one, consider Utopia to be the first RTS game.

I take back the electronic RPG. Even though this can be argued as to what an RPG is.

Actually Overon, I think this is correct. From what I understand, most people consider ADVENT to be the first RPG, which was made at some time in the 70s.

Portal is one of my favorite games ever; however, I don't think it does anything that can only be done on the PC.

Companies need to start using some of the strengths of the PC platform when designing games, rather than just using the ease with which PC games patch to release unfinished products.

I think that one of the main strengths of the PC is the fact that game files can be changed easily. Let's see a MMO where each individual player can impact the world permanently.

Damn 4 player coop! That will be great only if the game is worth playing to begin with. I hope it is. I know nothing about it though

With the way things have been going for the PC, the 4 player coop will only be available for xbox 360.

I think the main problem with this game is its boring, repetitive gameplay.

You can only see the same area and monsters so many times before you want to gouge out your eyes.

The environments and enemies in this game make diablo look like a Zelda game.

I have been playing cRPG's since the late 80's & to be honest this is by far one of the BEST games I have ever played in that genre. Amazing story telling, great graphics & a great adult theme. I'll probably be buying this one as well.

I ignore the opinion of anyone that doesn't list Planescape: Torment as one of their favorite RPG's of all time.

Still think Aerosmith is the best concert I've ever seen

I agree with you (basically) 100%. The only problem is that I can't decide if the recent Springsteen concert was better.

Aerosmith rocks out live.

I'll say it again. Where's Hunted, Valve?

Screw Hunted, I want Border1.

Also, that bomb in the end zone, I can't believe Smith missed it

I think the reason that he missed it is that he was being held right before the ball got there, I think he lost track of it while the pats defender was hugging him.

Disagree a little......I got worried at a few times

I think I've gotten a new bald spot from that floater that he overthrew to Plax right before the Pats drive to take the lead.

1. One of the best books ever Jan 29, 2008, 11:03 CTone
 
It's hard to believe that Xenocide and Children of the Mind were written by the same author. TERRIBLE books.

10. Medic change Jan 23, 2008, 12:10 CTone
 
he first Medic unlock, for example, is called the Overhealer. Instead of temporarily buffing people's health to 50% above their normal maximum, it permanently boosts them to double their standard health. The downside is that it'll be dramatically worse at building Ubercharge

Now that I like. It is going to add more strategy to the game. Take 2 medics on your side, one to uber you and one to boost everyone to 2x health.

Soldiers with 400 health FTW!

I can't believe they haven't nerfed the spy yet

They don't need to nerf the spy, just fix it. There is nothing more frustrating than being backstabbed in the face. They really need to reduce the range of the backstab.

Good news because right now the medic is kinda worthless.

Tell that to the team that just had 2 heavy/medic uber combos rush their capture point.

"Stonehenge, where the demons dwell..."

Where the banshees live and they do live well...

God, I love This is Spinal Tap. Given today's plethora of reality TV schlock, this movie was way ahead of its time.

Excellent reference Blue!

News Comments > Your FPS Brain on Drugs
16. Re: No subject Jan 16, 2008, 14:27 CTone
 
when i read this story and saw the website I laughed so hard and fell off my chair I nearly died.

Same here, except for the nearly dying part. I think the best part of the website is the faq. Here is a particularly choice nugget:

FpsBrain was developed to take effect exactly when it is needed. It is sufficient to take FpsBrain one hour before the game starts to obtain the full effect.

Is this a trend in medication? Drugs that you need exactly when taken take an hour to feel the real effects?

35. Re: ... you guys are nuts. Jan 14, 2008, 14:57 CTone
 
In certain games, there are multiplayer fairness reasons for restriction FOV and etc in widescreen. You dont want one player being able to see more of whats going on than another. You may not be able to do anything about making it fair between two systems of differing horsepower, but thats one thing you CAN do.

I have a crappy computer and I have to play most multiplayer games in 800 x 600 (or worse). This means that almost every other player sees more than I do. Should they be reduced to having 800 x 600 resolution so that they see the exact same amount of playing field that I do? I don't think so. There is no reason to restrict widescreen to be fair, since there is no restriction on resolution.

I do kind of see why he would be angry.

He sees the topic about him giving away his game for free, and he checks the comments hoping to find some praise for this. Instead he reads how a few people find his games to be poor and not entertaining, so he gets upset.

My games are in a niche category. Right there, a full functioning brain - thats not on crack - is required.

Is it possible to post a criticism of a dsmart game without having your intelligence attacked by him in response?

I'd much rather see a discussion of why the UI was made as it was and why it shouldn't be dumbed down, other than just saying its a "niche" game.
