News Comments > Defender's Quest & Demo Released
2. Re: Defender's Quest & Demo Released Jan 23, 2012, 19:58 yuastnav
Man, this game is really awesome.
Normally I don't play Tower Defence games, do not like them. Had enough of them after I played some Starcraft Brood War maps with my friends, many years ago and the only ones I have played since then were Sanctum and Revenge of the Titans.
This one is really good, though. I just really like the style and the setting they went for and really enjoy the humour, the mix between tower defence and rpg works quite well, too.
Afaik it is neither on Desura nor on Steam though I personally like it that way because I hate to use installers or self-unpacking binaries on my Linux machine.
Took me about ten hours to finish the main game but only on casual, though. Will try to get perfect on every difficulty setting.

News Comments > Indie Royale New Year's Bundle
9. Re: Indie Royale New Year's Bundle Jan 6, 2012, 05:46 yuastnav
The impression that I have is that, the people who do the Indie Royale, saw how successful the Humble Indie Bundle was but didn't fancy the idea that additional work would need to be done to create Linux ports - so they just made a bundle where that is not a requirement.
A shame, really.
Though it still looks like the Humble Indie Bundle is the most successful one of all the bundles there have been.

Uh, that is not correct. You are having fun because you had low expectations, not despite having low expectations.
You see - you had low expectations i.e. you did not expect very much from this game and the game offered more than you expected and that is why you are having fun.
If you had high expectations than the game would have under-delivered and you would not be having fun.

I'm glad the article states that it's not actually Facebooks fault but the fact that a bad marriage and the ability to talk to just about anybody is the root cause. The leading cause for divorce is always marriage lol.

Sadly not everyone has the mental capabilities to realise that, at least I get that impression when I look at the comments section of this article.
These people could also be trolling though.

Either way; sad, sad.

It is a bit sad to see how some media outlets are completely incapable in dealing with such a new phenomenon as Anonymous.
No, Anonymous is not a group, saying "Anonymous said this and that" does not make much sense since people could go ahead and attack PSN while claiming they are Anonymous while others will say that they will stand by the decision not do something like that. It is not an organisation, it is a loose gathering of people.
Adaptation was one of man's greatest strengths but some people are obviously inept at that, in modern days.

And thankfully such censorship is not common in the more civilised parts of the world.
Again: This is the internet. The internet is not a really a "state" or something like that so I'd recommend to drop these archaic ideas and embrace a more modern approach.

If I recall I think I got a warning about swearing in the beta. Blew my mind. I asked them wtf the chat filter was for in that case. Yet another reason this game is doomed.

Sorry, but that there was absolutely no way that they could've made room for a word filter in their budget.

Krahulik should have stayed out of it. He can spin it however he'd like, but it boils down to "I think I'm pretty important since I run PA and PAX, so I'm going to throw my weight into this bit of arm-flailing."

Between this ridiculousness and the Notch/Yogscast Twitter debacle a few weeks back, the "gaming community" is looking more and more like "kindergarten."

That's absolutely ridiculous.

It might also be worth noting that since PAX, the show the guy was touting that he'd be at, wouldn't exist without Krahulik...he doesn't have to think he's important, he is. If he doesn't want someone with that sort of behavior being on the floor at his show then I think it'd be irresponsible for him not to say something. It's part of why PA is as popular as it is, because they aren't just going to let it slide because someone is paying them money...they actually care about what's going on.

As much as I hate the gaming community in general, the actual event that people are talking about is one of the positive examples of it. The stupidity surrounding it and the juvenile actions of random people who aren't involved with the story sucks (including Kotaku here), but it's pretty silly to think that's a gaming community thing and not a general internet thing.

And further dragging this into the public eye accomplishes... what, exactly?

Cheap entertainment for once and even more cheap entertainment concerning discussions about the morality of the whole story. Kind of redundant, actually.

Oh yeah, and clicks, c.f. Forbes article.

Was hesitant when I first read about it, especially since I have never played a Tribes game before, but after having received a beta key (I didn't even know why since I, although I wanted to, never applied - my guess is it's because I bought Global Agenda) and actually played for a bit I can say that this game is a blast!
Really fun, kinda fast (although not really fast-paced) multiplayer shooter. Good times.

News Comments > Geo-IP Changes
15. Re: Geo-IP Changes Dec 24, 2011, 05:28 yuastnav
A VPN network could work - it also could not, depending on how they implement it.
For example: I can say from personal experience that it does not work on Steam. I can connect from the US using a VPN and see products that would otherwise be banned in Germany but if I'd actually try to purchase them I would not be able to do that because I have to enter the address where I live and PayPal also show that my bank account is in Germany. That way Steam can actually determine that I am not a buyer from the USA but from Germany and stop me from buying that game.
Apparently it works sometimes when you use a credit card, or so I have read, though it is a bit strange how that works since one user reported that he wasn't able to do it while his friend was and both of them had the same type of credit card.

You could probably try to enter a fake address in the US but you'd also need to do that in your PayPal account and since they verify these things it could be seen as fraud.

We live in sad times.

That's a good point, I'd missed the significance of the Optimus Prime connection. I'm probably the only Bluesnews regular who has never seen any Transformers stuff: TV shows, comic books, games nor films.

Nope, I was never interested in the Transformers either. Never saw the show or the movies and was never interested in any related products.

Prime is a rather generic word, too.

This game IS KOTOR 3.

If it was, I'd be buying it. Alas, it is most definitely NOT KotoR 3.

Same here.
I am not down with other players running around in my game and paying a monthly subscription since I don't know when I might have time to play and so a lot of money could go to waste.
This is not KOTOR 3, it never was and it never will be - it is impossible by definition, no matter who tries to claim it. Be it a random gamer or Bioware themselves.

GamersGate is a fine service and maybe even preferable to Steam because you don't have to run a friggin' client to play some games, which is a plus for when I want to play games on Wine.
Morrowind runs better than Steam on my Debian machine so whenever I play Morrowind on my notebook I actually have to kill the Steam client afterwards because it hugs so many resources when used with Wine. Does not happen with Windows but sometimes I'd still just run the game without starting Steam (also: is it just mean or is Steam's offline mode permanently broken?).

I see we are using the very loose definition of "new game".

I thought you were kidding but then I read the article and... my god, someone get these people a dictionary please.

I also find it quite annoying that every time ther is Ludum Dare people immediately write "Oh, the great Notch has blessed us with another one of his creations."
Way to patronise all the other people who partook in this contest.

[...] And let's be honest - all heterosexual males between the ages of 15 and 90, when in the presence of a beautiful woman, will be thinking of her sexually at least for some length of time without her being "sexualized" at all.[...]

I guess therein lies the problem: I am not heterosexual (I am also not homosexual so the reverse case would not work either).

Really. So you do not think that the video game industry is over-sexualised? Huh.

No I don't. Sexualized, yes. OVER-sexualized? No. Sex is one of the strongest driving forces in human nature, which makes it natural that it is utilized in entertainment media. If women were the dominant consumer class in gaming, all of the male avatars in games would be hung like bulls, built like Mr. Universe, and sensitive to every woman's every mood instantly (Ya know, like how my wife wishes I was... ). That's just how humans are. It's true in all media, and quite frankly I'm sick of hyper-sensitive, attention-seeking idiots posing as game journalists trying to score points with other hypersensitive morons by continually writing such pointless drek as this shameful excuse for an editorial.

Well, that only shows how remote I am from the standard thinking patterns of most people of this society. For me sexualisation is objectification and that is not a good thing.
Big-breasted, scantily clad women jumping around is god damn annoying in my opinion (on different levels) and it is a kinda sad for me to see that this is actually perceived as the norm.

Well, we all have different standards and different moral compasses. Maybe I am just too sensitive.
