Assuming they can get this off the ground at all, seeing as apple is locked and Google has a defacto monopoly going, I'm not so sure a race to the bottom is what an app store needs , if anything the big two needs better control over some of the rubbish that's out there. If they could rid the field of all the ads/pay to use/win/play shenanigans , sure , but with 12% they'll have less resources to do just that

News Comments > Tim Willits Calls QUAKE Design Dispute "Silly"
12. Re: Tim Willits Calls QUAKE Design Dispute Sep 5, 2017, 13:20 BicycleRepairMan
This is the dumbest notpology ever , Romero an co didnt dispute that map fragments exists, even I have folders full of those , and im a craptastic level designer! . The dispute is that these fragments gave Willits the idea of dedicated deathmatchmaps, that HE invented, acccording to himself, in Quake ! That is the silly thing here , which was obvious to anyone who was alive at the time , Deathmatch was a well-developed concept pre quake , and dedicated dm maps were basically expected by the time Quake was made.

News Comments > Steam Summer Sale Launches

What the hell is going on at valve? I mean that sticker stuff is the most uninspired crap I've ever heard of. Imagine that board-meeting. "Uh guys we have to do that summer sale again, any ideas? No?, ok then lets just do a sticker thing." I mean come on. These are the people who made fucking HALF-LIFE! Well, at least some of them, as they seem to be leaving one by one over there these days. No wonder these talents are leaving really when all you get to do is make stickers for the summer sale.

HL3 confirmed.

I cant get into the site, even tho I manage to write a birthdate older than 18 is there some sort of region block as well? I'm encouraged to read their "Privacy policy" and I was considering doing that, or stabbing my own eyes out, and now I just cant decide.

Carmack is spot on with the loading times , i dont have vr , but even for a normal PC game, loading time is a real issue for me, specially after getting kids , I need to be able to jump in , Play for 4-5 mins then out , how is that even possible if i have to watch 3 bink videos, then look at a load screen for 40 seconds before getting to click on New game , followed by a scripted introWHATTHEFFFFFFF.. times up ! The way mobile games work is vastly superior in this area, I can whip out the phone , play 2 min and put it down.

It was rumored years ago that Activision wanted to use as it's own competitor to steam. Never seemed to materialize, though...

I guess they were making games instead , like diablo 3, Warcraft 3.... you know, games with "3" in their name...

Secondly , do not buy the Rubiks Brand cube , there are FAR Better cubes out there , the MoYu brand makes some wicked good ones , my personal favourite is the stickerless guo guan yuexiao. I buy mine from cubezz , but if you look elsewhere a MoYu Aolong v2 is a more commonly stocked cube and really good too. Get a stickerless , they both look cool and you dont need the hassle of getting ripped stickers

My method you only need 3 algorithms an an easy move 1: solve a 2x2, expand it into a 2x2x3, now you have 2 sides left, lets say red ( Right side) an yellow (up), now without moving your finished 2x2x3 , try making a red and yellow cross (+), cant do it ? Then 2 or more edges are wrong , make edges right : hold red side towards yourself an yellow side up. Place one Wrong piece on reds left side an one wrong edge on the up back ( all this can be done without Moving the finished 2x2x3. Now you have to switch the two wrong pieces: L', U, L
Repeat until all red and yellow edges are correct and you can make a cross on both scrambled sides . After correcting the edges you can complete the first two layers(2/3rds of the red side) by only moving red (R)ight side and yellow (U)p side.

Now you should have a cube where the first 2 layers are solved , and the yellow layer has a yellow + on top . Now focus on the 4 top corners , and only placement( it doesnt matter that they are oriented wrong) likely only 2 of then can be placed correctly , place one of the two correct ones closest to you on the left (if the are on the same side , place both on the left) do the following algorithm: L, U', R',U L', U', R ( if the correct corners are diagonally placed , you need to do this twice)

Almost there , now do the Sune algorithm until ITS all yellow on top R, U, R',U, R, 2U , R'
Last algorithm 2F ,U, L, R', 2F, L', R, U', 2F
And you're done

Notation U= Turn up side 90 Degrees clockw , the side that is pointing, most commonly this is always yellow
U'= up side 90 degrees countercw
R=right side 90d cw
R'= Right 90d ccw
You get the idea
L left
F=front , the side facing you
B= back side facing away from you
D= Down
When there is a 2 , as in 2U , turn U 180 degrees

Yeah, thats one way to destroy the credibility of a mult-billion dollar moneymachine, or they could, you know, not do that.

Customer reviews are like youtube comments and everything else on the net, 90% crap. And sometimes that crap is even voted forward, but if I'm considering buying a game, those reviews wont count, unless i happen upon one that seems well-written and thought out by a real person. They are rare, sure, but pretty easy to spot in the pile if you ask me. Also I look at the Metacritic score, and maybe check out some reviews there, and last but not least, if Im in doubt, Watch some letsplay on youtube of the game in question. Look, developers, its not that hard, all you got to do is to create a bugfree, fun, entertaining game thats superduper awesome and affordable, and people will buy and play it. Thats all there is to it.*

*In other words its almost impossible, but thats why you probably shouldnt be a game developer, unless you should, in which case you can make a great game.

"3D TVs to Disappear into History. Won't even say I told you so."

I predict the same headline with "VR" in it in about 2 years.

News Comments > CIG Demands Escapist Retraction; Threatens Lawsuit
34. Re: CIG Demands Escapist Retraction; Threatens Lawsuit Oct 5, 2015, 11:00 BicycleRepairMan
OUCH! CIG is gonna crash and burn, this is a self-inflicted deathblow for sure. EVEN if all the "Accusations" at the Escapist were made-up (And I highly doubt that they are made up), they were all made up by the sources (unless the sources are made up, which means Escapist is too stupid to imagine), so at best (for CIG) this is a conspiracy between the ex/disgruntled employees to fool Escapist, and the Escapist cannot be blamed.

This is a classic slapsuit threat.

News Comments > Escapist Defends Star Citizen Sources
32. Re: Escapist Defends Star Citizen Sources Oct 3, 2015, 04:52 BicycleRepairMan
How do people still believe in this sky-castle? I mean, take a look at other AAA games, lets take the COD/MW franchise: COD is made on a massive budget with MASSIVE teams that have shipped games together in the past, so they are tightly knit and know each others limits and strengths etc, they spend 2-3 years making each game, which is basically an upgrade of the last game, same engine, same style, same gameplay, scripting, animation systems, art, level design etc. And the games are super-linear and typically pretty short campaigns and looks almost identical to the last COD game. So basically despite an almost endless budget and team size, they have a very limited plan and stick to it = shipped polished game. And there are STILL issues with these games. How the fuck is SC going to look on "release day"?

IAW, not considered a "reverse Friday the 13th" exactly here in Europe..
