News Comments > Intel Drops Project Offset

Sad indeed. I got a shirt from them. I should ebay it in a few years. I stopped following them when they deleted all the accounts and made everyone sign up over at Intel's site. Hopefully things work out for them.

Seems most MMOs (Tabula Rasa excluded) seem to survive, even with very few users. I'll put this in that boat. I don't think it'll shutdown in the next six months, but I don't see it becoming very big at all.

News Comments > Global Agenda Drops Subscriptions

Surprised they moved so fast on this. They released a poll at the start of the week specifically asking if people had any interest in subscribing or not. I wonder how many, like myself, said no. At least they are listening and making improvements.

As for the death of the game, you can still find matches both for PvP and PvE. I think there were around 20 PvE matches (think it was hard mode) and around the same number of PvP matches last weekend when I was on.

Does Bioshock 2 still have the DRM on it? The steam page for it doesn't mention it, but I remember it (the DRM) being full of suck.

33% off Settlers sounds awesome. No buy with the DRM though until it hits $5.

Tempted to buy Elemental while it's 15% off. I've avoided the preorder since I don't want to play a buggy beta, but the next batch is for Beta 3, so it may be getting stable by then. At least I hope so, since it's coming out soon.

The animations look like shit. If it's like Populous, then that doesn't matter since Populous was awesome. However, it's from Ubi, so no buy.

News Comments > It Came from E3 2010, Part 5
4. The Day the Gaming Industry Died Jun 16, 2010, 12:42 Frijoles
 
The problem is that video game players simply won't keep playing without a new gimmick every five years or so. Where people have been happy watching celluloid movies for like 80 straight years, for whatever reason gamers won't keep playing games unless given a completely new format every half decade.

Umm.. no. I don't know about the mass audience, but I don't want any gimmicks. I want a game. Perhaps console gamers need the gimmick. PC gamers have had just a mouse/keyboard for a very long time (with a dash of joystick).

A lot of people raving about Nintendo's performance. I didn't think too highly of their lineup. Zelda looked very clunky. I don't really want to get off my couch to play a game, but I'll give it a chance. Kirby looked like Little Big Planet, only worse. Never understood why Goldeneye was All That, so meh there. Donkey Kong looked fun.

I watched for the 3DS thing. That actually looks interesting to me.

So this was the surprise? Damn it, Valve.

Fuck, I hope not. That's a pretty shitty surprise.

So.. this is a PvP game? I have a key to the city but the downloader is fucking slow, so I haven't tried it yet.

Steam has made me a cheapskate when it comes to buying games. I'd rather wait for the $30 price range now instead of $50. I may get this one at $50 though.

I've heard lots of bitching and lots of praise. It seems that you're either strongly in favor of this game or strongly against it. I haven't tried it though.

- is rumoured by an anonymous source that it will be Source 2 / HL3
- will not announced by Gabe, as he won't be at e3

I'd be very surprised if HL3 were announced without Gabe. Seems like something he'd want to be in on.

Also, I clicked the link only because Hellbinder freaked out. Was not disappointed.

Previous one was very linear. Not sure if I played #1 or #2. Basically you just follow the path and clear it out. I enjoyed whichever one it was, but it certainly wasn't amazing. The co-op helped a lot.
