TR was a failure that was re imagined into a even worse failure. Seriously Garriot had an idea and wanted to play with runes again. The DEVs tried to make up an MMO ruleset around that. They threw in instancing after GW showed what could be done. They empphasized the SF because RG thought fantasy was overdone and he wanted to go to space. So congrats everyone who supported TR, you got Richard into space. The game, the Koreans, and the players were always second in TR's publishing.
Will be interesting to see how this pans out. I'd be lying if I said that I was never tempted to grab Derek Smart's other games off of GameTap since it's so easy and I've been curious as to how bad they really are. Will be playing these for sure because of that curiosity.
Who knows, maybe they won't be all that bad! Stranger things happen. Particularly curious as to whether they'll hit the top games played.
That is ridiculous. That many nerds out there with nothing better to do in life than pay to play a treadmill game?
I hate the way MMO's have no ending, and are clearly designed to extract money out of you and get you hooked. I think when people reach their 30's these kinds of games really don't appeal anymore. We tend to see through it too quickly. I can understand a month or two, of which you would pretty much see and do everything, but years?
ok, fine, here ya go...
Man, I just LOVE these posts of 4D Rulers begging for money, over and over and over. It never gets old! There's not a day that goes by that they don't look more and more desperate! Whoo-hoo! I wonder what they'll be pestering us with next week? And how much money they've raised? These weekly updates of how much more money they need are not enough! No sir, we need daily, no fuck it, hourly updates on how much money they still need! That would be SOOO cool! It's 11:39 PM, I wonder how much money they still need as of this very minute?????
Beg! Beg! Beg! Yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!
He's 14 and they are worried about him seeing porn? If he's normal, by that age, he should have at least reached 2nd base...and more then likely seen others hit grand slams via the internet, his father's "magazines" in the sock drawer, national geographic, or torrentspy.
Oh, my poor baby! How dare they taint your innocent young mind!
14...hahahaha. There was a time when 14 year olds were having babies...
Oh shit, wait...they still are!
I always find it funny when people seem to say its 5050 on the format war. 7/8 major studios now use BluRay, Dell the largest PC maker in the world supports it, Apple supports it, Sony (of course) and the largest electronics makers support it including panasonic and their budget brands, all the major optical drive makers are supporting it along with many more.
BluRay produces a better picture, and better sound than HDDVD and now the price for making them has dropped due to PS3 game production as well as increased production facilities HDDVD has no advantage.
Could it all change? Sure... but itd take a massive influx of HDDVD players which isnt happening yet. It will at some point but if they'e not quick the PS3 will fill up some of that demand.
I'm all for indie developers and would totally support a project I believed in.
With that said, no offense to these guys, but the game looks lame.
I dunno, it just seems like I could back a more original looking concept then something that looks like a quake 2 mod.
