Retired, my ass. Tulsa still happily uses them, as did Minneapolis and Atlanta, as of this past July.

I wonder if they will continue seeing as the article specifically mentioned how to get a .380 past them, or plastic explosives and a detonator.

Yes, because they're looking for boobies, not bombs silly.

It is a stunning revelation that for a games company to be a success it has to focus on high quality games.

It's kind of weird that everyone is focusing on the Gold Box games. I feel like the first game, Pool of Radiance, was in many ways the high point of that series, especially in terms of scope and doing different things. After they became the Gold Box company the games just more and more samey. SSI was more interesting to me when they had a dozen wildly different RPG engines going on.

Wizard's Crown was definitely one of those. It had an amazingly complex combat system.

Yes, all very good games for the time. I loved the tactical combat games they put out, and Wizard's Crown was special for me. It took me a long time to save up enough money from washing cars and mowing lawns to finally get it, but when I did I played the absolute hell out of it.
I tried to replay it again recently via emulation and the UI drove me positively batty. I've become spoiled I suppose.

Yes, it's actually a lot easier to switch on and off than it is to modulate what "on" means.
It's also a question of noise immunity. Two states are quite easy to distinguish even with significant degradation of the signal, while more add less and less margin.

We'd do more tricks if we had to, but with fiber the raw bandwidth is huge so fewer tricks are going to be done versus the horribly limited spectrum in other areas (consumer WiFi, cellccomms, etc).

At least the early backer perk is a lifetime DLC pass and not an in-game towel.

Yes, clearly they are just targeting a midrange and / or much older PC. Their answer confirms that - when ported it ran fine on unimpressive technology. Which it would if it wasn't particularly taxing.

They are out of their minds. And honestly, only having 10 people - not so much a selling point.

Some of my favorite games were entirely about "weird things with physics" and "weird things with zombies".

Possibly an absurd question, but is the game playable/fun with mouse +kb, or is a joystick pretty much necessary?

You know, I originally was miffed about DA2, but since then so many franchises have been nuked from orbit this seems like a lesser transgression in hindsight.
