iD software kind of lost me sometime after Quake 2.

Then they might get you back with Rage; it seems that good to me.

Certainly I enjoyed Q1 and Q2 far more than everything else they've produced...

So is he saying Indies only get good sales if they sell on Steam? If Cliff was smart he would take that Indie web site he started to the next level. If it still exists...I don't even remember the name anymore.

Yeah, nevermind the humble indie bundle, or the Apple App Store. Oh, those don't count?

More than likely, they just didn't provide a compelling publishing arrangement, and perhaps Steam's behemoth status is partly to blame for that, but blaming it all on Steam makes them seem a bit like a kid who wants to take his toys home now.

Right. Chrono Trigger, Doom3 engine.

All you modders out there, get going, STAT! I expect a playable build by lunchtime tomorrow. ^^


As much as I'd love that, Square is very protective of Chrono Trigger, and tends to send Cease and Desist notices fairly quickly :-(

At the very least, Rage is cutting edge technology. Perhaps you may not be interested in the game itself, but what modders and others do with it should be pretty astounding.

Have they said that there will be mod tools?

To quote shacknews on this:

The news was confirmed by id creative director Tim Willits at a recent press event, who said that both features will be available out of the box. "Pull down the console, type 'id studio', then press enter," he said. "Then, bam, there's all the tools we use."

Meh. RAGE looks extremely generic. Will pick this up when it hits the bargain-bin.

Read the Kotaku preview and then reconsider:

I have to agree. Well worth the $5. I've eaten food and watched movies that cost way more and were enjoyed way less.

They're already used to having a permanent internet connection and games not working when the internet goes down and it's nothing more than a temporary, minor frustration that a rational person is more than capable of handling in a rational way.

Temporary and minor like the PlayStation network being down for a few months? Oh wait...

Sorry, but you're dead wrong.

Yeah, Res. of Evil was quite awesome, actually. I really liked it.

I've been wanting to replay Doom 3, but last time I did that I didn't get much past beyond the first level before it started annoying me. I was wondering if there were some ready-to-go mods that fixed some of the more stupid design decisions.

I could never get past the "Zombie Closets" aspect of Doom 3. I actually enjoyed Doom Resurrection on the iPhone more (blasphemy, I know).

Anachronox was so amazingly good. I'm very glad I happened to play. Yeah, the combat was boring, but an unofficial patch by one of the developers added a fast forward key, a truly must-have!

I strongly encourage everyone to play the game if they haven't already. It holds up very well since interesting characters and dialogue never go out of style.

Yep, totally agree. I loved it and played it all the way through. Was so sad that it never got a sequel (mostly I believe) because of Daikatana's failure.

Let me contribute to the thread with the generic, stock DRM comments you see in a comments section like this:

"I was interested in this game, but thanks to DRM I will avoid it" Translation: I had zero interest but just want to bitch about DRM for the sake of it

Translation:

I'm a jaded gamer who can't believe other people might actually have meaningful beliefs that keep them from buying games where they're treated like a criminal instead of a customer.

Boo on VVVVVV for taking their webpage down during the bundle. Oooh... we don't want to let people know about our game.

I'm guessing it was because their website was basically just there to order the game:

They do link to their forums.

I'm enjoying Terraria far more than Minecraft.

There are a few things that terraria does poorly though:

* no easy way to disable monsters
* crafting is not nearly as obvious as minecraft
* crafting seems to take far more time in terraria

But other than that, yeah, there's a lot of things I like about it more.

I wish it was available for the Mac too -- Minecraft wins in that regard (far more portable).

So for the price of a half decent lunch i could have potentially several hundred hours of quality gaming ahead of me! "

Uh... $15.50 is a half decent lunch?

Do you live in Disneyland? (lol)

No, try San Francisco. *rimshot*

(I don't actually, but I swear it's that expensive sometimes...)

If that's the same one from here (sorry, I'm not creating/logging into a youtube account to watch a video), it looks amazing.

I just hope they don't fuck it up with GFMFW...


Easily solved, just change any youtube URL:

Free transfers remove the only deterrent to extremely obnoxious behavior.

No, they do not.

Obnoxious behaviour should be dealt with regardless of its source.

I think you'd have a better argument saying that free transfers could have a negative impact on the economy or population balance of the game, in which case simply putting limits on the number of transfers and enforcing terms of services should be sufficient.
