We had a new Pentium Pro machine at work, so got Duke (and later, Quake) to exercise it.

Used to play online at T.E.N. Total Entertainment Network, which had written an Internet piggyback for the LAN code. I think that's a porn site now. :-/

Beating the final guy was a cheer worthy moment, which I have never felt in any other game, especially since I started the end out of ammo except for the machine gun and didn't know to shoot the blimp.

I also recall seeming endless hours of working your way up the desert mountain to gain access to the alien ship, all the while this eerie warning siren was going off, and it leaving you feeling very forlorn and hopeless. This is what amplified the joy of the final win. Good job, and Game Over!!!!!

But will there be boobs? Or are boobs inappropriate for children?

She made some good points. I just disagree on the lingeree bit. I can see the point, but a game is about relaxation and fun.

And even ignoring lingeree per se, I love the fashion aspect of it. City of Heroes alt-itis was all about fashion and themes, and not just the skimpiest outfit you could create. It is a struggle in Star Wars: The Old Republic to do fashion. You have three choices: hulking armor, a freaking ugly Jedi coverall robe, or some slave bikini variant (name changed to dancer).

With various non-workman pants and skirts, and a more cover uppish top, you can approach real stylin'.

as they seek revenge for the death of their slaughtered Master

How about a game where we seek revenge for the death of our beloved, slaughtered City of Heroes?

is there a game worth buying yet?

NO. There are a few quests and that's it. More than people know, because they talk without playing it. I've spent a few hours playing. But it's not a whole game yet. It is like a DayZ alpha type of situation where everyone has their fun running around in the wild west.

That said, if anyone wanted a deal, they needed to buy the sale packages that just went by. The price of the game is probably going to double now.

I was ready to pay over a hundred to Mechwarrior Online to buy an Atlas. Thank god for the open beta and the insane decision for no single player. Not an mmorpg, just another online battle arena.

Here, I wait. I want to know what the gameplay is. Pure PvP?

And the ugliness of immersion-busting "balancing" rears its ugly head.

I remember some ancient no-copy tricks. One was to produce physically damaged floppies and try to write to the damaged sector. If it succeeded, it was a copy.

And the Atari 800 floppy drive had a section it could read but not write. So people would produce floppies and read unlock permission from that section, but people couldn't copy and create a new floppy that way. Unless you had an off-brand floppy drive, that is.

Now I just need a game I want to actually play that supports it.

WoW?

SW: TOR?

That's pretty much it. Oh well.

I have two Eve accounts for two-boxing. How fast can I switch the games inside the headset?

This was the first SJW-approved game because women weren't second class citizens, forbidden by men from taking off their tops, too.

I hope social justice doesn't go in reverse.

DS admitting he is wrong? Please, you want some elves for that fanciful fantasy?

That's pretty damn impressive, but personally I don't care about planets with nothing interesting on them (See Elite Horizons or even KSP) to me that is super lazy game development. Procedural content is not real content, its just fluff that hides that there is nothing underneath the surface of a game in terms of content. But then some people love that in elite.. just hope SC is not going that route. And hey, as KSP shows us, handcrafted height-map based planets (so no caves or arching rock formations) with zero detail ain't better either...

Procedural planets are just the start. Go read Reamde from Neal Stephenson. In there, they have a massive virtual world where planets are not just procedural in a fractal sort of way, but generated from real-world physics, lava and volcanism and plate techtonics, with real, natural depositon of resource veins, and populated by real functioning ecosystems and evolution.

Imagine a still better world where there is a nation of a hundred million orcs, and they are resource hungry and nasty and spreading. No "spawn points", real virtual organisms breeding and spreading and harvesting and building and...harvesting you because you are in the way.

Where is that freaking game? Screw spawn points and theme parks and tank/heal/dps and magically reapearing resource nodes and inability to climb anything.

Gameplay has not evolved from the tank model in well over 20 years. Which would matter if games weren's solo oriented, making bots even easier.

I get to do something cool later today, though mentioning it in advance is not really playing it cool.

STAR WARS??!?


but I'll fill you in tomorrow, at which point it will probably be a "so what?"

Ok, maybe not!


So I'm just setting myself up here. That's me... living on the edge.

You and Aerosmith are going to go see Star Wars together?!


Steven Tyler could go dressed as a hippie Admiral Ackbar. He wouldn't even need makeup to give him a big fish mouth.

Plus he is well-acquainted with traps!

Wouldn't you need a 4k monitor to really see a difference? Otherwise you're just taking the 4k output and downsampling one way or the other to your own monitor.

I don't view that as downsides. If they make the world right, you will have a couple of minutes of warning incoming.

If people can just appear, then the world is not built right, and it becomes like every other game out there.

Imagine being an RAF pilot during WWII -- and you get that warning. Now how stupid would such a world game be if Nazis were just miraculously there over the airfield?

In lieu of knowing how twitchey gameplay will be ("Hit him with your 2s hold!!!") this is the only thing keeping my interest open.
