I just hope their next major project isn't the shitty MMO they're trying to make.

Give us Elswyr or Valenwood already!

I enjoyed it as well. I have fond memories of sifting through box after box of dos video games at Babagges.

It was a more civilized time.

I was about to buy Far Cry 3 until I saw that it requires uplay. I hated dealing with uplay with anno 2070. I'll spend my money on something else. Thanks for nothing ubisoft. One burn is enough for me.

My guess is that they max out at about 100k. Also how is an extra 18 million in venture funding anything like Minecraft?

I find that Minecraft requires child like "play" to enjoy or self made goals.

Most companies make a sequel or two to their best selling game before they jump genres (if they ever do). There is a lot that can still be done with Minecraft and other people will do it if Notch won't. Notch is just doing what he wants because he can (as we all wish we could).

Trying to judge a game this early in development is silly since it will most likely change into a completely different game. Vision and game play are almost never the same thing.

That video is rather sad.

I don't get why people cry about always having to be online.
I don't get why people can't understand I want to be able to play the single player game I paid for without having to depend on my ISP, the game maker, and the game maker's ISP.
Touché.

You can make private online regions which allows you to play by yourself. I don't get why people cry about always having to be online. I suppose the same people have also boycotted steam? I have no love for Origin.

The game is looking pretty awesome to me. The complete rewrite of the old simulation engine means goodbye to old bugs and hello to new ones.

I don't get this widescreen monitor. It's basically a 30" with the bottom 520 pixels cut off. Running letter box on a 30" will get you the exact same thing since the high aspect ratio screen is only a tiny bit wider.

If it was 40+ inches and this high aspect ratio then that would be a different story or if it's really cheap (not likely).

I wonder if valve up'd their time table on releasing this because of Windows 8? It's no secret that Gabe feels threatened by it given his past comments.

It can never be true 3D when you have a flat screen. For true 3D you need dynamic focus depth. Ie, your eyes can focus on any part of the scene and it seamlessly shifts the focus to there. As long as this does not happen there is no real 3D.

Even if both eyes get different perspective and thus pseudo 3D, you can not focus on any part of the scene - the focus would be infinite (like it is now on a normal screen) and thus, not real 3D.
Correct, no eye tracking, no true 3D.

Gabe Newell's dislike of Windows Marketplace (App Store) must have played some part in this statement.

I suggest reading the entire kickstarter page. It sheds light on why they're doing this, and a lot of other things too. They could have still completed the game, but they want to make it bigger and better, faster. The kickstart will allow them to do that.

They're just trying to get a piece of the Kickstarter pie before the bubble bursts, like everyone else who jumped on the bandwagon after Tim Schafer. The crash is going to be spectacular.

Why not? If I was them, I'd jump on Kickstarter to.

I really want another Titan Quest. For all of its problems I still spent at least a hundred hours playing it. If throwing more money at these guys will improve the odds of this happening, then I will.

As far as them fixing bugs in TQ? I expect no support from any game company that I don't pay a monthly bill to.

You apparently have never used your grappling hook to get across the map quicker than a lightning bolt!

Quake 1 CTF - Threewave Capture the Flag FTW!!!!! Just watching videos and listening to the sounds brings me back to 1996.

Oh man. That is one of the seminal games(mods?) that changed gaming for me. I remember for the first few weeks that was out myself and a bunch of other IT guys were all playing very late into the night on the office lan, setup our own server to play against other people online, etc. I was just living and breathing that mod. That flag cap sound will always be ingrained into my brain and has me keyed into a total Pavlovian response of pleasure when I hear it.

LMCTF was the pinnacle of FPS for me. Grapple laser all the way.
