SimMARS sounds cool...

Awww.. I would think a Sim Mars would be good.

I have similar thoughts. Planet colonizing games are fun. A sim-ish one would be a lot of fun.

Any comments on Hitman series for $10?
I already have an incredible backlog of games to play but don't mind adding a series to my collection for $10 if they are worth playing.

Blood Money by itself is worth $10, easily. The other two games are dated, but great. The original Hitman game is notoriously hard, but it's my favorite of the series (having played it when it was brand new.) Blood Money is VASTLY more polished, and much much more fun to play.

The main problem is the missing game: Hitman Contracts. Which is, for some insane reason, not included because of a single stupid song that there were licensing issues with. Instead of gutting the song like they did with Quake (and losing the awesome Nine Inch Nails tracks), they just chose not to sell Contracts at all on Steam. Fucking ridiculous. The song isn't even that good. And Contracts leads into Blood Money so perfectly, story-wise, that it's a travesty, and the engine is almost as polished.

All in all, worth $10. It's just missing one of the games. Sigh.

Very cool presentation. Chris Avellone clarifying things about Planescape Torment was a really great touch, too.

1) Most humans are greedy fucks and I don't trust them to reward the developers.

Trusting humans to do the right thing is usually a bad thing to do.

You don't need a system for this. Just tell said individual that the Jerkstore called and it's running out of them!

I didn't expect that to make me laugh. Then it did, and kept doing it. Does that joke qualify as topical humor? I really hope so.

Nice, I love long RPGs. Considering I got 150 hours out of Fallout 3, I wonder how much I can squeeze out of Dragon Age.

Sorry for the bad camera acting but I was on my own and tried what was possible without a tripod

I don't know whether it's funnier that Blue took exception to the camerawork (far beyond his normal shakycam warning), or that you're apologizing for it. Either way, still a good interview.

This is what I don't get. People say that space sims are dead because they don't sell, yet here we have the fifth entry in a friggin submarine sim published by Ubisoft. A SUBMARINE SIM. Are you honestly telling me that submarine sims outsell space sims?

People also say PC gaming is dead. People say a lot of things. A lot of it is bullshit. Sorry

I did buy Silent Hunter 3 and 4, though. And Tachyon: The Fringer, Starlancer, Freespace 1 and 2. I like both genres. Glad to see that Ubisoft is still interested in making Silent Hunter games.

Would be great if someone was interested in making a Freespace 3.

Ethnicity? Marital status? rofl

No kidding, that's priceless. Do single guys beta test more? Do married guys give better criticism? And ethnicity, what the hell.

I'm wondering if he even tried multiplayer because I know for certain that multiplayer in Defcon can become a hair pulling stress fest.

I know there's an enemy nuclear sub out there...I KNOW it, where is it? WHERE IS IT?!

Its gotten pretty decent reviews & the price is right.

when an important patch releases and you have to wait days and days to enjoy it, it kind of makes you angry.

I didn't realize that drawings of nude women constituted an important patch.
