But the combat so far is lack luster and not very immersive so far.

Touché. There's definitely something lacking from the combat that the first game had in spades, although I can't quite put my finger on what it is that's missing. Perhaps it's because there's no quasi-emotional involvement with your character party in playing a brief demo?

20Kb/s off the Dragon Age website, vs 1.2 MB/s off Gamer's Hell. Thirty minutes and counting. Goodbye real world for (hopefully) a couple of hours.

He definitely reached his creative peak when he was drinking piss from his own shoe.. sadly it's all been downhill for the last 15 years or so.

Essentially, it will be a legalized version of those "free" private WoW servers, where you splash out real money to buy imbalanced virtual weapons to pwn the nubs. It'll be great.

Who is Eric Johnson?

Seriously?

Wow.

As a guitar player for the past twenty years, I'm ashamed to admit that I had never heard any of Eric Johnson's music until a few months ago, even though I remember his name being bandied about when I first started playing. Cliffs of Dover is superlative if you like his particular style, but I can also understand why some would dismiss it as muso frippery.

RIP Pete Postlewaite.

Guy was a great actor and very believable in every role he played.

Agreed. He was a bloody brilliant actor, and I really enjoyed his work immensely. That's a sad way to start the new year. Still, 64 is a decent run.

Sixty four is a decent run? You must be a kid to think that..just wait a few years, then you'll be saying "what a young age to go.."

And R.I.P. Pete, you were a true salt-of-the-earth fella, and great in Alien 3 and Brassed Off.

Sorry, I can't help it - every time I see a story with this game's title I think of Joan Collins and Linda Evans slugging it out in a swimming pool.

The brits love their sims! I can only guess this is due to allowing them to build a dream home that has the space and yard most folks over there only dream of.

One of the penalties you have to pay for living in the fourth most densely populated country in the world. It could be worse, look at the poor South Koreans, they barely have enough room in their rooms to swing a salted dog around.

If the nation that produces phalanxes of 18-hour-a-day gold farmers is growing weary, MMORPG developers should be very, very worried.

I seem to remember some interview or blog a week ago where he said they just wanted to chew the fat with him, I got the impression that valve has money coming out their ears.
Hmmm, money kills creativity. Hopefully, he doesn't become lazy. Hopefully, money doesn't corrupt him.

Since he seems intent on going it alone (well, starting his own studio at least) I would suggest that money isn't his sole motivation, as Valve probably offered him a mint, with the bitter pill being that he no longer controlled the creative direction and was part of a larger team a la Narbacular Drop's transmogrification into Portal. A shame really, as Portal was a massive improvement on ND - let's hope he can make a similar improvement by recruiting more to the cause.

There's no denying that David Allen has an extremely large forehead. But, having studied both of their profile pics on their respective blogs, I have decided that Derek is telling the truth because his eyes are further apart.

Thats funny. Especially since I never lived in NC, am not the only Derek Smart in the US and certainly there are no Derek Smart's with criminal records, let alone arrest warrants anywhere in the US.

You should stand up and exclaim, "I'm Smarticus!!"

An interesting read, and it paints Derek as a treacherous, lying, deceptive, conniving, thieving scumbag. I wonder what Derek's take on the matter would be?

From that comment, it sounds like it's still at the embryonic stage. For his sake, he'd better hope it doesn't jump out and tear his face off.

After reading about this somewhere, I think a Penny Arcade, I tried it. My gameplay was a total failure. Note I'm blaming myself, not the game. Something was wrong; I think due to an incompatibility with the system I was on not everything was properly functioning. All I could do was walk, jump and break blocks - literally nothing else. Definitely wasn't right. Breaking blocks was moderately entertaining for five minutes, which sounds kind of pathetic haha, but I was definitely missing something somewhere. No buttons did anything, just block breaking.

I quit quickly and forgot to go back on a non-netbook. I'll try it tonight. Everyone I've talked to has had cool experience, and I didn't, either because the netbook was messing up or because the experience on a 10" screen was so disappointing that I didn't bother reading some documentation and going back.

There are different versions to try - the survival version has the nasty critters - http://www.minecraft.net/survivaltest/

There's multiplayer too, but I haven't tried that yet.
