News Comments > Valve Plans 3 "Big Surprises"

Valve's last big surprise was full of suck. So one of my predictions: We really are doing a Steam client for Linux!

I switched to Reddit two years ago. Watching Digg implode from Reddit's side has been entertaining.

A lot of people compare it to Dwarf Fortress. In fact, someone wrote an importer for Minecraft from DF.

Perhaps they hold dance competitions to raise money. We need a guinea pig to try this out for us.

Is this the same old web game where you join and have fun for like a day, and then get wiped out by someone who has fifty other friends playing and just want to destroy newbs coming out of protection? I hate web RTS games. So much potential, but almost entirely PvP based with no counters for new people.

Dunno if this one is the same way. I'll have to check this week some time.

Doesn't stop me from staying up 'til 3 in the morning playing it though.

Same here. Game crashes and stutters all the time, and yet I keep loading it back up to punish myself more. I'm doing sandbox though. The campaign looked boring (played until first crash, which was about 30 minutes in).

Environments look good. I don't care much for the characters though. Hopefully they're a rough draft. They look like plastic.

I get going there for the atmosphere and meeting the Blizzard lot if you're a WoW fan, but what are you shelling out $40 for with the live stream? A lot of people playing WoW and Starcraft 2 in a convention centre?

They announce their new games at BlizzCon, so a live stream is good for watching that. Sure, all the videos are linked up later, but it's cool to watch it live. They also have the developer tracks. Behind the scenes stuff is fun to watch. I paid $40 last year for it and will do the same again this year. It was well worth it since I can't go to BlizzCon.

I finally started playing this game again. I may actually finish it this time (just got the Urn). So far I've come across quests asking me to buy some content. I noticed there's several DLCs, so I'm wondering what DLC some of you would suggest.

News Comments > TF2 Hat Describing Contest, Worms Reloaded Pre-Purchase Bonus
2. Re: TF2 Hat Describing Contest, Worms Reloaded Pre-Purchase Bonus Aug 25, 2010, 16:59 Frijoles
 
Can someone please explain the whole hat thing to me? TF2 has changed so much from launch that I don't recognize it anymore and haven't been following it. Are they achievements or something?

I tried playing over the weekend for the first time in years. I got hit with a can and scared by a ghost. WTF? And then the map started playing "Wicked Game" and I couldn't figure out how to turn it off. I left crying and holding my blankey for comfort.

Few of my friends/coworkers spoke highly of it. I'm also waiting for it to go on sale. I'm a $20 kinda guy.

Release version is just as buggy as the last beta, sadly. They are fixing the crashes, but it's annoying to hit them (avoid alt-tab like the plague). However, I'm still enjoying the game. It does need a lot of polish though.

The game runs off of a shitload of XML files. So adding units, kingdoms, spells, etc is really easy. They say the campaign was created using the tools they are releasing. As for a whole new game with mod tools? Dunno for sure. The modding stuff wasn't available until recently.

This is the type of stuff that makes me oppose NN so much. Corporate and government overlords want to control the Internet for their own agenda.

That would make you FOR net neutrality. That is, you don't want it to change. You don't want corporations telling you what packets are important. Can't do that without the government telling them not to touch it. Perhaps it's the other stuff they'll introduce at the same time that you fear.

News Comments > Elemental: War of Magic Interview
5. Re: Elemental: War of Magic Interview Aug 18, 2010, 23:41 Frijoles
 
The battles are interesting, but I'm mainly having fun (in the current beta) building my cities. After a certain point, I go crazy and take over my neighbors' cities. The tactical battles are meh, but I think that's partially because we're a few versions behind the release. The one we have isn't very balanced and basically you can just cast spells to win. The screenshots show quite a few changes coming, so I'm looking forward to it.

I've said in other posts about Elemental that I enjoy it a lot. I've easily put 20 - 30 hours in to the game already and look forward to restarting on Monday (early release).

Perhaps an MMORTS. That'd be kinda cool if they pulled it off right. Persistent RTS world.
