26. New box - same shit Jun 11, 2002, 00:59 theAntiELVIS
 
Do they really think we fall for this crap? Sure there are the weenies who just buy everything because they have no life, but why would ANYONE buy the game a second time in a new box?

This kind of empty marketing bullshit is taking over the game industry. It's like programming languages. They release patches and give them a new version number. Everyone with brains just skips every other version.

I blame Valve for this kind of brainless marketing crap. Everyone knows marketing people are just below insurance salesmen on the evolutionary ladder. They aren't in any way needed. Especially since they're the lamers who are sucking all innovation and creativity out of the industry.

This kind of repackaging is the equivalent of reruns on television. I don't watch that crap, either.

"We sold our souls to get the money to survive because even though we have several hit games, we suck monkeys when it comes to running a business"

But I'm glad there may be another "Jagged Alliance" - version 2 was great.

7. Loony's engaged? Jun 5, 2002, 12:25 theAntiELVIS
 
Nice of him not to discriminate against the blind this way.

I'm just assuming she's blind, of course.

It is a "she", right? It's not a console controller or something?

I've eaten nachos as old as six-months with no ill effects.

Then again, I've been dead since 1977 - maybe that helps.

Fart jokes.
Everyone you disagree with or dislike is a "fag".
Pointless whining and moaning.

The more I read this stuff, the more I'm convinced children should not be allowed to type.

I've written 3D code - have you?

I'd use your name, but of course you're a slime-ball anonymous post, meaning there's no reason to pay too much attention to you. Add to that your boorish use of capitalization, and there is, really, no reason to care if you live or die.

7. The Blue's News Irregulars? May 26, 2002, 19:26 theAntiELVIS
 
You need your own version of the "Baker Street Irregulars" - some unpaid urchins doing the floor crawling for you.

In fact, you should have given Levelord a laptop and made him your "man on the scene" - a special set of despatches from the inebriated heart of the event. That would have ruled!

But overall, I think the reporting this year was a lot more organized and less, err...overwhelming than in previous years. The broader perspective of distance, I guess.

..pulling the links may have been just a wee-bit too subservient to the powers-that-be. If the NY Times or Fox News or CNN gets their hands on something hot, they run with it.

If id doesn't want their media to get out to the public, they shouldn't show it publicly. And certainly a "news" site shouldn't quail from posting something that's actually news. If the industry would retaliate against you for doing such a thing, then you should report that, as well. That's news. It's not like you went to E3 and shot the footage yourself. You're just reporting it. It's id's bailiwick to get the video taken down if it bothers them.

Just my 2 cents (now only worth 0.15 cent due to inflation).

59. The things you people will argue about May 26, 2002, 19:08 theAntiELVIS
 
Carmack is not a god. Carmack isn't even a genius. He's just a damn fine programmer. I'm sure even he would agree that that's enough.

Actually, if you read the man's code, you'll find two things:

First, he can actually be quite sloppy. But that's the game programming world. Many of his techniques (hard-coded limits on the size of data elements, for one) simply wouldn't be acceptable in the biz programming world. In games brute force is often the best approach.

Second, he's tenacious. There are places in the Q2 code where you can see he's tried this, tried that, and tried the other thing until he found what works. Tenacious is a much better thing than genius when it comes to programming. It means he's not in love with his own ideas - he's willing to go where he has to to find what works.

Most amusing here are the strong opinions about how good or bad Doom 3 will be. Doom 3 isn't out yet. What the fuck do you know?

IMHO, it doesn't matter what kind of game id makes. It only matters what kind of engine they make. Q3 blows. RTCW, SOF2, FAKK2 - these are great games built on a great engine. Maybe Doom 3 will rock. Maybe not. But when Ritual, Raven, Gray Matter, etc. get their hands on it, there will be great games.

Doesn't mean it will happen to you - but it happened.

Here in Northern CA, they give you a ticket if you aren't moving at the flow of traffic, no matter how fast it's moving. I got nailed for doing 55 in a 55 zone, but the cop claimed the prevailing flow of traffic was 65, and I was a hazard to other drivers.

I think he just wanted to see where my girlfriend's hand was.
