News Comments > Activision Publishing Suing Worlds Online
5. Re: Activision Publishing Suing Worlds Online Oct 5, 2013, 15:33 Hump
 
I was given an install CD for WorldsOnline when I got my first PC. It was the poster child of a net bubble company that sucked up millions for a total shit product. Of course when management were exposed as useless money sponges and the bubble went pear-shaped, they started patent trolling.

Human garbage all around.

I'd like to see something like Starhawk but with better execution.

Sell the hardcores the boxed game for $60. Once the sales level out, they'll switch to a F2P.

They know full well what they're doing.

I'll vouch for War Thunder. Very similar gameplay but the execution is far, far better.

Im guessing if the Steambox is going to become a reality then HL3 as launch title would be a no-brainer for Valve

Say what you will about Valve, they don't do things halfheartedly.

One thing about the game they did right was to ditch the tedious crafting and needlessly complicated menu UI from FarCry 3.

Overall I enjoyed blood dragon a lot more than FC3 itself.

This is really unfortunate. Section 8 was a solid, well balanced (for the most part), multiplayer game.

News Comments > Rhode Island Alleges 38 Studios Deception
19. Re: Rhode Island Alleges 38 Studios Deception Apr 5, 2013, 17:35 Hump
 
From statements by him and his wife, they appear to have basically lost pretty much their entire fortune on this deal. While he's still making a nice salary by being on Baseball Tonight for ESPN, and there's no need to feel sorry for him, I do find the idea that they're now trying to pin criminal actions on him to be fucking disgusting.

The stories of his financial losses have been called into question. Im sure he got hit hard but depending on which story you read its all pretty vague.

What IS know about Schilling thats been backed by individuals who have done projects with him (sports memorabilia dealers, etc) he is described as a difficult person to work with (another quote "a real prick"). Not sure if that played into this but Im sure it didnt help

If RI gave Schilling a check without so much as double checking his numbers, they deserved to lose every penny of it.

I live in RI. Allen Dershowitz once claimed it to be the most corrupt states in the union. While there WAS a rush on their due dilligence when they were trying to bring 38 studios in, there HAS been some questionable financial machinations on the part of the company's end as well.

I think we'll find that there will be plenty of blame to go around once its settled.

News Comments > MechWarrior Online Payment Concerns
12. Re: MechWarrior Online Payment Concerns Mar 31, 2013, 00:00 Hump
 
I was hoping for an updated version of MPBT:3025. This shit has gotten way to complex and tedious.

hell, i thought the guys who did Chromehounds MP did a fine job of balancing A SIM-feel with a meta game and marketplace.

I was one of the biggest MW fans out there but after playing MWO for several days I lost all interest. The tiny cramped maps, the confusing UI just turned me off. It made kind of wish Crytek had invested some money into the MW IP and worked with the Living Legends guys to come up with a MP game that one wouldnt mind spending a few bucks on microtransactions but still felt like a traditional MW online game.

They days of selling a game on its graphics alone is long gone.

to be honest I stop noticing this level of rendering 5 minutes into a game. from then on it needs to stand on its own. Current graphics tech is more than adequate. Enough with the tactical FPS shit. theres plenty out there.

every Logitech mouse does the dbl-click thing after extended use. take it apart and you'll see that the little bar that depresses the actuator button is made of the same soft plastic the rest of the mouse is. After a time it will become squashed and misshapened just enough that it will no longer firmly 'click" the actuator causing a double-click.

If you are careful not to destroy the teflon pads to access the screws that hold the mouse together, you can usually reshape that little bar with a little manipulating (heat helps). You can also use thin plastic and superglue to fashion a new surface that can lay over the old bar.

or you can just buy a new mouse.....
