Although I loved Deus Ex, I think Ultima Underworld was the best title (creatively - not graphically) he was involved in... followed by the System Shocks and Deus Ex (in no particular order... they were all awesome).
Would be nice if there was a bigger graphical difference between the 360/PS3. Might make all these ridiculous patches and installs worth the trouble.
DX never came out on console... That's most likely why he's never played it.
Still won't buy anything from Creative Labs after the "shadow patent" they got after seeing a technical presentation of Doom 3. (Yeah a sound company is going to be expert renderers Then they turned around and used it against id software. Thieves.

DRM isn't free. Drop it and pass on the cost saving. Cheaper game AND no DRM? Who WOULDN'T buy it? THAT would be a success..

Why would EA execs be high-fiving over this? They're getting $15 instead of $50.

So... the natural evolution of a browser is an OS. But to include a browser with an OS constitutes monopoly?
In any case, I don't expect MS to start pumping out innovative or unique games all of a sudden. In the unlikely event that they do, it won't really matter because they'll all be 360 exclusives.
no, you probably think on spaceships and space fights, but those fighters have to sleep and eat somewhere. They probably also have families some planet living their own thing. If everyone just fights who's left to do the rest?
The cities had suburbs all around them.
Real houses that players built to form blocks and blocks of little communities. You could build starports across the planet then transport to these player made communities.
You could run a store out of your house and spend time decorating it to entice customers to return. You could buy a space yacht and load it full of furniture and your trophies and prizes.
There is nothing wrong with having it IN there, I mean, some people want to play Star Wars and pretend to be Sy Noodles and the Modal Tones.
But in fairness, Beth has no MMO track record, yet they've been gearing up recently to start making them. It's possible they have some new ideas to bring to market.
As a method of doing volume shadows zfail is well-known among graphics programmers, and Creative in no way invented it - they just got to the patent office first. It is described in numerous articles and books, not one of which says "btw if you use this you will have to pay the 'tards at Creative".
Codemasters was shrude enough to know that the masses dont in most cases associate likes or dislikes with developer or publisher names, they associate with the name of the Game itself.
