Note how the article doesn't actually mention "MMORPG", just "MMO". Just because most MMOs are role-playing games doesn't mean all of them are. And when I read stuff like "very different from any other MMO for some special reasons", I think the "reasons" might very well be that it's not actually an RPG, but some other genre.

Blue, you might want to edit that MMORPG reference in the intro because the article doesn't say that.

The FAQ at http://www.btinternet.com/~acbarrett/faq.htm explains that this was actually done as a spoof by the Rainbow crew themselves, which is what I thought. Damn funny, though.

No elves, goblins or swords... just killer robots, freakish mutants, squealing tires, destructible environments, Havok 2 physics, radioactive fallout, scripted storyline and PvP battles, and ion cannon satellite strikes?
Does that sound intriguing to anyone?

Well, it does to me. MMO = Mad Max Online

Why else would she be wearing a pasty underneath her bustier and bra?

Um, that wasn't a pasty, it's a nipple piercing - check out http://www.drudgereport.com/mattjj.htm. Also, she obviously wasn't wearing a bra.

I still think she was in on it, though.

Am I the only one who thinks the new iPod Mini (http://www.apple.com/ipodmini/) looks like shit? I mean, the original iPod was alright, but these - eww.

The only guy to top Blue's sheer madness in not reinstalling would be someone who had a heart transplant while jogging.

I don't know about y'all, but I've done this two times, with Windows 98 and Windows XP, and never had any problems. I think this anxiety is a leftover from the old Windows 95-days, where a motherboard change could indeed fuck things up.

Also, how 'bouth them Rams! Shame about that back referee, but hey, right now we simply cannot lose.

Build engine games (off the top of my head):
Duke Nukem, Blood, Shadow Warrior, 3 Redneck Rampages, Extreme Paintbrawl, Tekwar, Powerslave (also originally 3dR), Witchhaven, NAM, Fate. Probably a few more.

Rise of the Triad, too, I think.

A final analysis of current product pipeline revealed that both titles have been cancelled.

...but we only noticed yesterday. Or something.

I'd love to play Circle of Blood, that old adventure game from 1996. However, it's so old that I couldn't find a store that sells it. Does anyone know where I could find that?

Hey Kenn, thanks for the hint about Equilibrium - looks very promising, don't know how it managed to stay below my radar until now.

it would appear that huge computing power is so huge that it merits two posts

...and I'm left wondering why I clicked on the second of the two links, but not the first.

Nope, lol, thanks anyways, I just remembered, "The Killing".

I was just about to tell you. Coincidentally, I'm watching it right now, and it's very nice so far. However, I still consider "Out of the Past" (http://us.imdb.com/Title?0039689) to be the best film noir ever.

... but I have been told I am apparently too qualified.

Not to be an ass or anything, but for the irony to work, shouldn't it be "apparently to qualified"?

Edit: God, I'm an idiot. Me no speak English.

Yeah, Blue, if you wanna inundate us in ads and still won't give us a PayPal donation link, I'm gonna be really mad.

C'mon, just do it! You know it's the right thing!

Edit: Didn't know how to spell "inundate". How embarrassing.

Included along the way is the apparent first confirmation that the game's title will be Primeval: Wrath of Entropy.

Because as we all know, hell hath no fury like entropy scorned. What the hell??
