I can only hope that this new-found interest means that THQ is looking to bring the series back. A Red Faction Guerilla 2 would be AWESOME...

Being a movie tie-in makes it doubtful that this will be of decent quality, but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't hoping for this to be Theme Park/RCT/Parkitecht with dinosaurs.

How sad is it that I immediately knew without reading the article that "Rag Doll King Fu" was the first non-Valve game on Steam back in the beginning?

News Comments > Evolve Server Closures Will End F2P
9. Re: Evolve Server Closures Will End F2P Jun 4, 2018, 09:00 Prez
 
I didn't even know that the servers were still up for Evolve. Stage 2 was a vast improvement over the half-baked cash grab that original Evolve was, but Turtle Rock ended all support not long after Stage 2 went live (I'm sure because 2K games decided that no more resources were to be expended on their failed DLC-fest). Had Evolve launched as the much better and F2P Stage 2, this story might have had a much happier ending. It's amazing how many lessons of this nature the AAA choose to ignore on the way to their next major fuck up.

I started watching it in Stage 2 and I've watched a ton of it since. It isn't the best spectator game - super fast and chaotic and flashy effects everywhere - but for some reason I keep tuning in to watch the matches. I guess I want to be there when the Shanghai Dragons win their first game of the season. Last count they were 0 and 40 or something. Anyway it doesn't look like anyone is beating New York this year When I saw that New York had a team I was excited - I wanted to see a bunch of Jewish and Italian dudes with awesome accents eating bagels and wearing Yankee hats, but no - New York Excelsior is made up entirely of Koreans.

Steam is the de facto source for digital PC game downloads. Regardless of where else the games are sold the vast majority are sold on Steam. The day may come when Origin or some other digital distribution service becomes a true competitor but it hasn't happened yet. Arguably Origin is better, but does not have the universal acceptance that Steam does. The lack of curation and adherence to any standard whatsoever is starting to become a major liabilty for Valve with the negative attention that games like "Gay World" and "Active Shooter" are generating. I have a feeling that the days of zero curation on Steam will be coming to an end in the near future because of incidents like this.

I believe that games like "Active Shooter" and "Gay World" have a fundamental right to exist. What I dont believe is that Valve should be hosting them on their storefront. Curation and standards are not censorship, they are mandatory in a professional storefront.

I loved Fallout 1 & 2, liked Tactics, loved Fallout 3, adored Fallout New Vegas, liked Fallout 4, and am at least curious about this next project. According to Blues forum logic I'm not a fan of Fallout, videogames, or even pizza, apple pie, or baseball. I might not even be a fan of ninjas, penguins, giant robots, or pancakes!!! Fucking PANCAKES man!

One thing a lot of dog owners aren't aware of - i wasn't til I found out the hard way - is that long walks on hot days can cause burn injury to the pads on the bottom of a dog's paws because of the accumulated heat of pavement. Blacktop is the worst naturally - avoid asphalt except for only short periods. Just be sure to keep the dog on cooler surfaces like grass as much as possible during his walk.

This is pretty cool. I've been getting back into a lot of these classic games in the past several months. Why I still love Toejam and Earl is a mystery, but I can't help it.

Interesting that they don't seem to touch on the subject of school shooting games at all, rather just focus on the developer's history.

It's actually pretty clever. They quell the outrage from the public by the game's removal while avoiding angering the anti-censorship crowd by using the developer's history as the grounds for removal.

Yeah, concerning the trailer, I was on board with this big time until the demon lady started talking. Talk about ruining the atmosphere - it sounded awful. Still, I'm loving the atmosphere that the trailer shows. It's definitely what I'd imagine a place like Hell would look like.

How can this even be copyrighted when it existed in the wild for decades prior, as game variants in all the early multiplayer FPS arena games. Unreal Tournament, Quake, Doom, didn't they all have a last man standing game mode.

That's the main point that the case hinges on, and in my opinion heavily weighs against Bluehole's already slim chances. One thing I have noticed is that although legal systems vary from country to country , one universal concept among most of them is the general adherence to legal precedent. Game mechanics for a long time have been legally allowed to be cribbed from earlier games in the vast najority of circumstances provided the newer game has enough variation to be a transformative work and not a direct copy. Which again I imagine with at least a significant level of certainty is why earlier RTS developers haven't sued in Korean courts over Starcraft's (the most popular game in Korea by a huge margin until only very recently) cribbing of the RTS concept and mechanical specifics lifted directly from earlier RTS games.

Admittedly not the best example, but I saw the claims in an editorial video, either by Yongyea, Sid Alpha, or Jim Sterling. Trouble is I can't remember.

He's very clearly talking about the DayZ mod called "Battle Royale" that he created.
Not a claim to have invented the genre.

Fair enough. I didn't realize that was the actual name of the mod. I stand corrected.

Bluehole is not claiming to have invented the BR genre.

In the lawsuit, apparently it isn't. But PUBG devs have made that very claim publicly, and more than once. There is also a separate lawsuit that they filed against a Chinese developer who made 2 mobile games that copied PUBG for their games. The level of delusion they are operating under becomes pretty clear when you read some of the stuff they are claiming to own. They literally try to claim ownership of the concept of using a frying pan as a melee weapon in a shooter. I don't know how anyone in their right minds can claim that AND find a lawyer willing to actually argue that point in court. It's utterly baffling. In that context, I wouldn't be surprised were they to claim they own the 3rd Person shooter concept as well.

No, what's fueling the thread is the ridiculous notion that you can claim copyright on game mechanics. That's ludicrous. If that were the case a dozen developers of older games can in turn sue Bluehole for what they lifted from those older games. Copyrighting the idea of parachuting out of a plane is so insane I have to admit when I first read your post I thought you were being satirical.

Nothing in PUBG is original. NOTHING. You cannot own a game mechanic, and the world is brown and nondescript to the point that Bluehole literally can claim ownership of absolutely none of it beyond the game's name. Hell, some of the buildings and terrain are stock Unreal engine assets. This lawsuit is as asinine as it is baseless.
I guess it depends on what the law in Korea is? What you say is true in the US for sure.

Considering how popular Starcraft still is in Korea, I'm not really sure they want to open that particular can of worms, considering that Starcraft most definitely was not the first RTS ever made.
