Yep - see how people who Good-bye Depression by constricting their anus also bought "Walter the Farting Dog"?

Just another example of cute dog-related content being slipped-in to the OotB section on a covert basis!

Ah, but selling a defective product is a crime! Nowhere on those jeans does it say "do not douse with gasoline and ignite while wearing"!

So the obvious implication is that you can indeed do so! Because nowhere does it say you can't.

So the kid should sue the jeans company - it's their fault!

Obviously.

That's what I thought!

Women are so cruel, though - they won't go out with me but they will hang with 3,000 scorpions. Talk about an ego-buster...

23. "I guess that could be said about..." Sep 18, 2002, 19:12 theAntiELVIS
 
Pain, taxes, and death excluded.

Which explains why pain and death are such popular subjects for games. Apparently taxes are such a bad experience they don't make the cut. Which makes you wonder about a world where pain and death are considered "more fun" than paying taxes...

20. Re: Announcer Sep 15, 2002, 18:26 theAntiELVIS
 
I don't know about the announcer's voice being "gay", but it sure as hell is annoying. Unfortunately it's also needed to really play the game and keep up with what's going on.

But this particular voice is soo much like a game show host it makes me want to barf. They need multiple voices to choose from. I'd like a sultry female voice to be announcing, personally. Maybe some sort of "machine" voice would be cool too. But this guy is just stomach turning...

73. Oh, and to clear-up the H-L/Q1 thing Aug 28, 2002, 00:16 theAntiELVIS
 
Half-Life is based on the Q1 code, with a lot of additions (like texture lighting). Some of those additions were inspired by what Carmack was doing with Q2, but are implemented completely differently.

Take the texture lighting - it was a much better implementation in H-L than in Q2, as it was configurable. You could change the color and intensity of a texture light source using the .rad file (I wrote a .rad file editor to make it easier).

But there was NO Q2 code used in Half-Life. Everything added was a product of Valve's work.

72. Doom 3 is just a tech demo Aug 28, 2002, 00:06 theAntiELVIS
 
As usual, we'll have to wait for the Rituals and Ravens out there to deliver a great game, and push the engine to its limits.

The key thing I've read in all the id interviews is that the game is a demo for the technology. Which is not a bad thing. Since Q2 the paradigm has been that id develops the foundation, and licensees develop the games. But building traditional multiplayer will be tough. They'll have to drop peer-to-peer to do it, and build a client/server networking system, so it might be rare. But it should be do-able if all they're interested in is the renderer.

Personally, I think id doesn't want to compete with the Unreal Tournaments and whatnot that will be out there. They have a history of attempting to side-step the competition.

But peer-to-peer is the way to go if you're primarily interested in building a single player system. And id has never claimed D3 would be anything else.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

11. Re: Then and Now Aug 27, 2002, 07:10 theAntiELVIS
 
Wow. I even remember the "American vs. Cash" contest. And now both have left id for other things.

Most sites don't last six weeks let alone six years. And that's not even taking the old "Quake Rag" into account. I think it's pretty amazing that BN has not only survived, but grown and improved consistently over that time.

My own foray into the Webmaster role started with a site that used to make fun of the old "Quake Cast" webcast on Psuedo (remember them?). And I'm sure more than a few others have been birthed in response to the BN presence.

Blue's News isn't just a web site, it's an institution. And as long as the warden keeps Blue locked-in, we benefit.
