8. Re: KOTOR on the other hand. Oct 12, 2003, 14:35 snide
 
sorry to dissapoint you all, but unless they make some major changes from the xb version KOTOR probably isn't the RPG you are looking for. it's pretty thin and watered down for a bioware game. don't go into it expecting the complexity or story of baldurs gate or even NWN. wanna talk about a letdown, how could lucasarts AND bioware slip?

Surprised no ones mentioned that this announcement sheds some light on the ritual firings 2 months ago. my guess was they lost the project awhile ago and thats why they had to lay off part of their staff. personally, im a big fan of ritual's and can't see why valve would have fired them.

haha, funny you said that, me too.

I gotta hand it to FunCom, they did the lead to gold alchemy thing with AO. I've never seen that kind of turnaround in the industry before.

Phaelog youre rebuttal cracked me up

I thought final fantasy was bad, but I don't think it was horrible. Also, along with a Mr. Ebert I think that it will be looked back on as a landmark film that although unsuccessful and pretty stale, changed the way movies could be made...ala the jazz singer or something. It was still terribly impressive concept wize, it just had a really shitty story.

^^^

Oh I agree, I just think that if you have 2 month spans in between these hiring and firing plans then you aren't as organized as you need to be. I love Ritual and hope they continue to produce top notch work, I'd just be really pissed if I was one of the guys laid off.

News Comments > Gorky Zero Polish Demo
7. Re: Polishing up my Polish? Oct 10, 2003, 04:49 snide
 
Oh the american ignorance, havent you thought that Gorky or wtf might sound good "to them" and it's "their game" and name doesnt make a game or make anyone purchase it, does it?

Of course it's their game, they can call it whatever they want to call it. However if they intend to launch it in an english speaking country they would be advised to change the name so they don't get laughed at.

If you think i'm being overdramatic just look at Divine Divinity, a great game, that hasn't sold as well as it should because everyone giggles over the ridiculous name.

Also, why assume I'm American. I'm sure the name is equally silly to canadians and brits as well. Your whole point still doesn't explain "beyond honor" which for all I can tell doesn't seem to make much sense.

And for the record, my post was if anything American humor and not American ignorance. Sorry if I'm not aloud to rip the name of a game, people do it at least 5 times a day to my own site (Guzzlefish) and I laugh along with them.

You probably got the razor because of a birthday. Dunno how I got mine either, but it was definitely because of my 18th birthday. It's a long running deal that gillette has done over the years. This was back in the Mach 1 razor days hehe.

yeah, but the majority of online MMROPGs allow you to have at the very least 3 per server.

7. Re: Per-character charging Oct 9, 2003, 12:09 snide
 
honestly i dont get this, theorectically a new character should just be a new row in the database, how do they justify this cost? i can see how cost goes up per user, hence a monthly fee, but per character? unless one user has multiple characters online at the same time (very very unlikely) then the cost to the company should be the exact same no matter how many characters the user has. What a scam

what the fuck man? i thought the same thing. this is ridiculous. i mean im a fan of ritual and especially levelord but 2 months ago they were all up in arms saying how it sucked they had to fire such talented people. now they are hiring all of a sudden? must be a new game deal or something, wonder if they picked up some of the old guys.

4. Re: DVD!!! Oct 9, 2003, 11:16 snide
 
i second that vote. while i understand the reasoning behind staying with the cd format, i don't know why more companies don't provide dvd options. i HATE having to deal with so many discs these days.

also, what the hell is with charging per character? that's pretty ridiculous. good thing i have absolutely no interest in this game.

You can always move to New Hampshire. Isn't that the state the Libertarians are targetting?


Yep, though with 5,000 sigs it's fairly likely it'll never take off. I love the idea, I just don't think it'll work. Plus, there are two kinds of libertarians...the well read economist and civil liberty types (myself) and the absolute wackos who live in huts and want to bomb places.

i don't see cameron getting back into hollywood movies for awhile. he's digging his sea and space stuff too much. he is also rumored to be a mircorp client. the guy made over 100 mil from titanic, i guess he's content just doing his hobby stuff at the moment.

Arnies future movie career? How about Arnies movie career of the past 10 years? i'm pretty sure we can all agree his hollywood standing died quite a while ago. He's relying on past graces of hollywood b-movies. I'm amazed he's still making flicks really.

Honestly, these are some really crappy films that didn't make too much cash in the BO. True Lies is the only I think that people would even debate (outside of the t3 nastalgia fans).

Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines (2003)

utter modern action movie crap. no decent villian and a hackneyed plot with ugly special effects. terminator - james cameron = shitty movie that ceases to be a sci-fi film.

Collateral Damage (2002)

got hyped cuz of the rollback 9/11 deal, wish they woulda just canned the whole flick.

6th Day, The (2000)

not just one arnold spouting corny lines, but two arnolds...yikes.

End of Days (1999)

everyone thought this one was gonna be good, but that was back when we were all scared about y2k and stories of milleniual doom were intriguing. not a huge flop like the others, but it was still terrible.

Batman & Robin (1997)

this movie almost killed superhero flicks in hollywood. one of the worst big budget hollyood flicks i've ever seen. arnie in it is laughable.

Eraser (1996)

im sure some will think it's ok, but i ask you, would it be ok if those guns weren't so friggin cool?

Junior (1994)

arnold...comedy...it'll be just like twins 2!

True Lies (1994)

A decent popcorn flick fairly forgettable as time has passed, all the good things about the flick have nothing to do with arnold.

Last Action Hero (1993)

Simply painful to watch, need i say more?
