News Comments > More Valve Layoffs
33. Re: More Valve Layoffs Feb 14, 2013, 11:34 Armengar
 
i'd say something is wrong too. Valve wouldnt hire crap people. They can afford to be picky and choosy. The type of people working there would be naturally multi talented, and if they are in a good enough shape then they FIND projects to work on (and make more money).

Laying people off (outside of a takeover) shows the need to cut costs for one reason or another. If the cashflow is heavily in the black then you innovate and design new stuff. If it is flat or negative then you look to trim the fat.

we normally get the folks to look after the kids and I get the other half to cook a nice meal for a change. Sometimes a nice night in is good for a change (the router gets switched off too, thats the only way to be sure no sneaky gaming going on....)

News Comments > System Shock 2 on GOG.com Tomorrow
8. Re: System Shock 2 on GOG.com Tomorrow Feb 13, 2013, 11:15 Armengar
 
the xwing series were the first games that made me want to spend serious money on my PC (I think it was a rage 3d with extra 2Mb RAM onboard) - then an orchid righteous 3D when they were released. Decent speakers and a decent joystick kit made them a joy to play.

I played xwing alliance at a lan party not too long ago (with xbox controllers) - it was still a hoot having a squadron of xwings take on a variety of ships (+ some capital ship to ship for good measure)

no idea what has happened to my CDs, I can only find alliance cds now. (the xwing CD had a great audio CD playing in the background)

trademark =/= copyright. GW are attempting to assert that space marines in books are pretty much their space marines. The same way apple trademark their logo etc. It makes no difference if there is prior art (starship troopers etc) as that trademark will have expired unless maintained. If maintained then it can last forever.

Its a shit move by GW but it is one they will win if they can show continuation over other claimants.

Whilst starship troopers is maintained as a trademark (http://www.trademarkia.com/starship-troopers-75110835.html) there is no mention of space marines in there and might well not be in any of the modern material. It would take a lawyer to comb through it all.

Purchasing a blu ray, ripping it then storing means I can watch it on whatever device I choose at whatever quality I rip at. Legal? Who gives a shit, my blu ray that I've paid for. I won't share it with my mates though.

You'd be better off with natural selection 2. Sure its not aliens IP but will probably be better gameplay.

"We know that (for many players) itís much more rewarding to gear up from items that you find while playing normally than it is to necessarily go through Auction House"

Easy! Much bigger drop rate of player bound items. Job done!

very hard game. Cheated heavily to complete it. Opening sequence was one of my favourites from that era.

ever since they introduced their "downloader" to grab programs was the day I stopped using them. At the time is was due to the fact their downloader doesnt understand authenticated proxies. I still wouldnt use it anyway - this simply shows why.

GTi Club was a great arcade too. You could free roam (to some extent given it was an arcade). Good fun.

it is shitty but that is capitalism. If you cannot show continual growth then your shares tank. No chance of influx money and the shareholders go nuts. Irony is, everything goes in bankrupcy.

There are still ample people playing d3 regularly though. Maybe not as many as launch but enough. I found d3 to be an ok game, but sure bit was no d2 but d2 was also shite until LOD was released. I got my money worth out of d3,other people didn't.

No one is holding a gun to your head to play it though.

If it has dedicated servers then so what if the matchmaking goes down. We played HL1 for shit'n'giggles at the last lan just to see the stoopid frame rates. Plenty of HL1 mods still get played and have active servers. Most new integrated GFX laptops will play HL1 brilliantly - great when you are stuck in a hotel due to snow with only a "normal" works laptop to hand (a time when steam really shines).
