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.

edited for sparkle.

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.

Why do you say that? I am finding games with more difference in levels then in the previous patch.

5. Re: Time to load up my second favorite RTS! May 10, 2004, 23:25 rist3903
 
If you mean that the level of players is a quite a bit different with a lot more variability in it, I agree. I'm not so sure its worse though. I suspect that they started matching players by their win/loss ratios, which says a whole lot more about their abilities than their levels. If this is the case, then it would be a vast improvement over the previous way of doing things.

The six year old is old enough to grasp the concept of being the center of attention, while the others are not. He/She is therefore annoyed about the presence of the younger children, as the amount adults coo on children is inversely proportional to the age of the child.

I dunno. Sounds like he got some pretty impressive data transfer speeds. Could have potential.

T3 wasn't too shabby. I was prepared to be extremely let down, as T2 was such a good movie.
