Must be those fundamentalist Christians again, formenting their own brand of special hatred....after all suicide is a sin...

Where did that come from?

I haven't heard any fundies attacking him. Williams was a well-known practicing Christian. However, there's been plenty from Fox News and Limbaugh as they've been lambasting Williams as a liberal and a coward.

Thanks. [edit] My first assumption was 10 year old with nothing better to do. Either way, sad stuff.

I know it sounds crazy, but every organic, unpredictable, adrenaline-pumping encounter with other people you have in that game, makes the previous couple hours of running around doing next to nothing SO WORTH IT. There's nothing else like it, period. That's why it's popular.

Of course, this is after you know what you're doing... If you don't stick through the learning sheer-rock-face, you're just gonna think it's lame.

As much as I hate standalone, it obviously carries over elements from the mod, like this. The intensity of outsmarting someone you are hunting, or are being hunted by, is second to nothing I've played so far. It just takes a long time to get there. Time that most people don't have. They need to open up the SA to the modding community so they can get some decent modded servers running.

What would be nice is a button that asks "Were you born on January 1st 1900 - yes or no?"

Instead of having to enter it every time.

It's not called Ultima, but RG's kickstarted RPG seems to be proceeding along fairly smoothly.

I kickstarted that one. I have avoided the alphas - don't want to ruin the game for myself. The game itself looks good. The business model around it is sorta cash-grabby.

I only spent a few hours with a guest account, but from what I saw it's a good thing you're waiting it out. Has potential, but far from ready yet.

It also GOG shipped and is currently available for $11.69

Where's Rodney Recloose? It also looks like a bit of a grind.

Weird Al...may god bless your heart for everything you have done all these years.

Awesome. I'm glad someone educated him on monetising vids on the net. As much as I hate that word. Vaguely remember his last stuff being leaked early, so this was the best possible way to do it.

I'll give credit where credit is due. I loved Unreal and don't really care how good or bad the people that worked on it were at PR. Going through some of his answers he is spot on in some areas.

It would be easy to say that a small group of folks are making a lot of noise, but they're doing so because they've asked politely a number of times in the past, and the devs never acknowledge them, or just say they're troublemakers. They literally insult the folks that are most interested in the project, and want more detail/answers.

Rather baffling...


Oh. It's that bad? What a shame. Was looking forward to a new Stalker.

First Epic game I've looked forward to since U2, of which I was sorely disappointed. This looks like fun though.

Seems they haven't pushed that far past the 33k mark. Been stuck there at least a week.

Are there any zombie standalone games that AREN'T in alpha status, or complete crap?

There's a spin off of the Dayz mod called Epoch. Decent fun, lots of crafting, base building etc. More feature rich than the standalone. It's pretty clunky, like all things Arma though.
