they really need a fucking 50% price cut and an advertising blitz on that game, so many people still playing GTA V when WD2 is better in almost every respect.

It was about $22 on humble very recently. Missed it. ;(

Reviews seem consistent that this is much better than D:OS 1. I didn't finish the first either but am very much considering getting this.

Meanwhile 20 minutes ago at the gas station I was next to a dude blasting hip hop music in which every third word was n*****. Ah, hypocrisy.

This. This latest n-word hysteria is fueled by fervent egos boosting themselves as morally superior. It's counter productive and divisive. The real dangerous racism is what has been institutionalized and I don't hear any of them calling for an end to that (ie. the drug war).

Agreeing with CJ on this. Diminishing returns have impacted the whole industry. I'm confident we'll see many more gains in the future but for now this is how it is.

A big lie repeated enough times becomes accepted as truth. What proof was ever provided of the alleged hack by Rus(s)ia? The feds never got the evidence, as I understand it. Many past US administrations have tampered with many elections and worked to overthrow legitimate governments. Now when mere allegations are made by sore losers that it -might- have happened here, outrage ensues.

I have news for you, our own media does far more to rig our elections than any foreign government. Also key people involved around Hill's alleged illegal activities in the past election were killed. For example, a judge showed up dead on the beach near the courthouse in FL.

Once they are partnered with your local government for a granted monopoly they don't have to care. They have control as long as we let the partnership continue. It's true that the Marxist NN advocates are whiners too and are delusional if they think that's going to really solve the problem created by anti-competitive government issued franchise agreements.

The real problem is a prohibition of consumer choice.

Frankly, I'd believe it better if he proposed that Q3 was MP-only, something I never understood, but it's what it was...

P.S. after two decades of reading, I've finally made an account... to comment on a story about something that happened two decades ago, I think I'll dine on the irony tonight...

Welcome!!

I sent an e-mail to Carmack right after Quake 2 released that I wished for a multiplayer focused Quake game again. I expressed how a thousand hours of gaming is better than a relatively short single player campaign.

I have no idea if that feedback influenced their decision for Q3. Quake 2 multiplayer was successful but for dedicated netQuake1 players, Q2 MP didn't compare. Not even close. It was so janky and rubberbandy, etc... It felt sterile the sounds were too techy for me. The Q2 railgun was great but no, Q1 (especially CTF) was so much more fun. In retrospect Q1 MP was very arcadey compared to modern FPS's in how it played so fast and there was so much giblets and blood flying everywhere. lol @ quads and rockets flying everywhere. Oh the sounds of Q1 MP are epic.

Dude, relax. With a bit of googling you will easily find guides that explain how to disable or uninstall everything that fucks with gaming. I have turned everything off from the Shitbox app to game mode, game dvr, game bar, all of it. All of those things are just additional spying/telemetry tools anyway or plain adware. Fuck the consolization of the OS. Mickeysoft can stuff that superfluous unnecessary crapware where the sun don't shine.

Yes good advice. I do that too. I was joking in my first post. Marketing types having control of the OS with their magic button saving pc gaming again (not) make me hurl.

News Comments > QUAKE Development History Dispute
33. Re: QUAKE Development History Dispute Aug 31, 2017, 21:19 LittleMe
 
Over ten years ago I personally spoke with Willits at a quake con and asked him questions about Quake 1. He did claim that he fought to have the MP maps included. He felt passionate about that decision. That is consistent with his present claim. He also complained about Romero and others, saying he cleaned up their map levels. Well this is my memory so keep that in mind.

To me, Quake doesn't have much story at all HOWEVER it does have a consistent design direction with its imposing Lovecraftian theme. Of course there was design direction but maybe Romero's context references something else (more gameplay elements like an RPG aka System Shock is I think what Romero wanted?).

Immediately after meeting him, my impression of Willits was that he loved making games, and also that he was irrationally tempermental and perhaps a narcissist. That personality type is well known for revising history to glorify themselves. That lends credit to McGee's comment.

Oh, Carmack has a very good memory and I think he is intentionally not entering the fray OR that maybe Tim is attempting to steal credit. Not sure which.

Yeah it looks like a good game but not enough to justify the $30 price. Needs to go f2p with a few cosmetics, etc. Then people would at least play it.

On a financial perspective it doesn't really seem to make much sense as there really won't be a tremendous amount of income derived from this.

Sure it makes sense if they want to repair their reputation and gain loyalty in the process. Maybe Sony is trying to save face too.

How about standard criminal laws such as conspiracy to commit fraud? 'Breaking them up' treats them as a corporation. Why not treat/charge them as criminals?

Now what about the cities/counties that have become fed up with monopolies and duopolies and created their own municipal broadband, just to have lobbyists from corporate interests draft legislation that bans municipal broadband expansion?

The posit is we can only choose between corporate socialism or socialism. Why can't a city/county just open up competition and let the market build it out, tax free? Why can't communities be allowed to wire themselves without a government monopoly or corporate monopoly? I'm sure a market-based solution can be reached since Internet is in incredibly high demand now. The market can provide this tax free and much more efficiently.
