Doom 4?

Don't they need to make Doom 3 first?

It was unlikely they could have made an interesting WoD MMO anyway. The only reason to play EVE is to be an asshole to other people, it's not a mechanic that would have translated well. And, as small as they are, they would never have been able to generate enough content make a Vampire game viable.

News Comments > EVE Online Defectors Get Apology Discount

I don't understand what exactly brought on the collective tantrum. Yeah, the virtual goods are a monumental waste, but if you're willing to pay real money for something that doesn't exist, you get what you deserve. You aren't forced to participate. The captains quarters are a non-issue, you still have the same access to the original interface. And again, you aren't forced to use it. From what I can see a bunch of crybabies rage-quit because they can no longer spin their ships in the hanger.

Who gives a flying fuck what Carmack says, does or thinks. I haven't bought an Id game since Quake 2, I haven't missed a fucking thing.

Why not? Bioware's reputation can easily suffer another steaming pile of mediocrity.

The GoT series is much better than the hooks. Martin's writing is so tedious and protracted you'll likely loose interest long before the pages run out. Enjoy the shows and hope Martin can live long enough to finish the last two books before HBO runs out of source material.

KJA, just to spite you.

At least Martin's ponderous prose will be more easily mimicked than Frank Herbert's.

Only two books left. He's got that kind of time.

For any other writer maybe, but ADWD was supposed to be a quick fallow-up to AFFC - it took 6 years. Dude's old, he could drop at any time. And even if he doesn't, the world could end. Next year it's 2012, I'm supposed to face the apocalypse never knowing what happened to Gordon Freeman and if Jon Snow was really Rhaegar Targaryen's bastard? Better to just move on.

I'm not sure why they passed, it's not like it would be the first time Bethesda made a game you got sick of playing before the damned thing ended.

I don't know who is going to finish the series after Martin passes beyond the wall, but I'm already past caring.

Patience will be rewarded?

I wonder what the payoff is for indifference?

Not that I really care or anything.

Wait till the turn over enforcement to the (presumed) injured parties, they'll have to invent new words to describe and justify that mess. Just don't doubt that that day is coming.
