Graphics were good, sounds were sparse. Anyone else notice that your footsteps sounded the same no matter what surface you were on? I became very familiar with the old footstep noise, in a not so good way. The ai was pretty much unchanged from doom1. Monster sees you/is teleported behind you, moves toward you and shoots, if it has a ranged wep. They had some cool instances where imps did unexpected things like crawl out of narrow gaps and stuff, but that was totally scripted. The ai couldn't have do anything but walk towards you on flat surfaces. I can't wait to see what other developers do to make interesting game using the engine, which with the lighting and all, is stellar.

The lack of coop multiplayer alone really brings the replay value down to negligible levels.

Cool idea, but it seems like our ultimate goal is to be absolutely motionless and yet have completel control over our computers. While this may be admirable in one light, striving for less and less movement necessary will not help obesity and poor health problems that are becoming endemic in the US and many other parts of the world..

If you like controlling a single hero in a team based game, dota all stars is shaping up pretty well. You can craft items with it in a nifty little system that works well and is pretty easy to use. Needs a little more balancing though.

2. Re: Far Cry DVD Jul 3, 2004, 01:42 rist3903
 
I concur, although since I already bought the 5 CD version I couldn't justify getting the DVD one, unfortunately. I would so much rather have DVD verions of games, particularly for those that would have normally come on a rediculous number of CDS.

I suspect that publishers don't trust non-DVD owners to pick up the appropriate box in America. I would like to think that computer game players are a notch above the average American though in terms of paying attention to that sort of thing though.

Uh, they do. They introduce a ton of new maps, people mess around with them, and based on the feedback pick a select few and put them in rotation. And then based on the feedback they receive after that either take them back out of keep them there for a while. Unless you mean a random map that you could thumb down. A lot of these maps are somewhat unbalanced though, and if people got to play them for ladder credit they might be annoyed if they got the suck end of a badly balanced map. I know I would.

I thought it had some decidedly odd pacing, but was otherwise quite good.

Warcraft 3 could be played right out of the box on a mac. Using the same CD.

14. drought and flooding Jun 19, 2004, 16:35 rist3903
 
Yes, it's a record drought here in the west...and yet over the last three days, my neighborhood has flooded not once, but twice, due to severe rainstorms.

When soil becomes too dry, It can harden to a bricklike consistency which prevents it from absorbing water. Therefore, droughts can increase the potential for flooding.

It is difficult to tell a developer to make a more moral game, as everyone doesn't have the same morals.

I think that the ratings stickers should say something along the lines of:

Warning. If you are buying this game for your child you are an imbecile, and personify a great deal of what is wrong with America today.

Something along a similar line should be done about people who bring tiny children/babies to horror movies.

edited to remove subtle gawkiness inherent in the previous iteration.

Another parent asking others to oversea their child...
Oversee. Not send offspring on a nautical journey.

If developers paid heed to this, would games like thief not be developed? You do pilfer things, after all. Would they then try to say that games should allow you to do anything allowed by the ten commandments? Sounds exciting!

not.

Archaeologists say that a certain thing in the Bible is just fairy tale only to be proven wrong when they discover archaeological evidence that that person or place actually exist.

Salem, Massachussetts had witch trials, and it exists. Therefore, witches must exist.

You might not want to look on the internet for people to respect your wishes vis-a-vis religion, or any other subject for that matter.

Ah, but mate selection is all about evolution. Women don't just have children with the first person they see when they procreate. They make choices, and because of these choices, certain characteristics are favored, and thus influence her decision of whom to pass genetic information on to the next generation with. These choices are informed by popular culture, and so it and all its shallowness is a factor in evolution.

Yes, but if they used win ratios to decide who fights whom, those people who start new accounts after hitting 5 or 6 would still have a tough time, as they would be pitted against others with similar win/loss ratios. Basically it looks like they found a way to make smurfs fight other smurfs. Sounds good to me.
