"multiplayer drop-in mode allows players to instantly join an ongoing game"

this is intriguing.

Dungeon siege had a pretty damned cool game engine. Unfortunately it had no soul.

Treated, but not cured. Apply Wanadoo cream after to ease discomfort.

Just a quick poll- who here thought that when I said:

'Doom was the first popularized RTS game'. This is true. Black is also white and up is down, on a corollary note.

Thought I believe doom is an rts game? Just curious.

Wc3 is not revolutionary. Nothing Blizzard ever does is. They are honers, not inventors.

edit: added a much needed r to revolutionary.

The verdict is out for me on the hud until I play the game. But as for paying heed to the previews about how it is not intrusive.. I don't know. These are people who are paid to paint a rosy picture of the game in question. Of course they are going to say that any changes from the original title are going to be be effective, easy to use, look excellent, and are unobtrusive. That is their job.

95. You have to give him credit Aug 24, 2003, 01:05 rist3903
 
In a really twisted sort of way, by embodying the worst aspect of abuse, fredrickson is building a better message board. I'm in favor of a list of specific users that are automatically removed by vote for a period of time, possibly on an asymtotic curve. For example, an offender would be removed automatically for one day the first time, then 2, then 4, 8, and so on. Also, this way you wouldn't have to have fredrickson's name be a permanent fixture here, just something that would pop up occasionally with ever decreasing frequency. Just like his posts would, likely. Another possibility would be to have it be strictly in the hands of the user as somebody above suggested. A 'hear no evil' approach, but with the same decreasing frequency. Give people a list of 5-10 accounts that they wouldn't see, and have them be able to modify the list when he shifts personas. By using the curve though, the onus would be on him. In order to offend he would have to have 11 or more accounts active, with the majority of his efforts unseen by most. In which case you may want to up the number on the list. Eventually, he should break, as trying to harass with 20+ accounts would be a full time job.

News Comments > Warcraft III & Descent III Patches
12. Re: Lousy interplay Jul 16, 2003, 15:23 rist3903
 
Doh. That really stinks. Descent games were a blast too. I couldn't get through the third one though. Got stuck trying to find the next objective and my helper craft was stuck in a repetitive wandering loop. I didn't dig on the unlimited lives either, made dying have no repercussions whatsoever. The first two were the bee's knees though! As for the warcraft thing, I suspect whenever they make a patch these days that doesn't actually fix anything, they are scanning for hackers. At least I hope so.

You could pull his teeth out. As for the real world game, I'm getting kind of annoyed about how popular its getting. Seems like everyone and his mother is playing.

53. Speaking of the xbox.. Jun 9, 2003, 14:46 rist3903
 
I doubt the xbox would be able to handle DOOM3 and HL2 as well. It makes me wonder if those games would even play well on the next generation of console systems. All I can say is- hopefully. Not to say that it isn't fun to play some team battles halo style, every once in a while. Speaking of which, does anyone know if there is a way to have a seperate tv for everyone? An example would be 2 on 2 with 2 xboxes and 4 televisions hooked up together. Splitscreen is ok, but I wouldn't mind having my own whole screen.

'You havent seen any HL2 screenies?? Where have you been?'

Haven't looked. Much for the same reason why I try to avoid information relating to any movie I am really looking forward to- I don't want to ruin the experience for myself.

edit: Capitalization.

Re: Post #25 I haven't seen screenshots of HL2 but I agree it may be better than DOOM3. Not that I think DOOM3 will stink or anything, but I think HL2 will blow it away in terms of innovation in weapon design and storyline, both of which have never been id's strong suit. Consider the weapons that were available in halflife, and compare those to the weapons that id puts in every game.

I wonder if parts of your army wink out of existence when they kill their own ancestors.

News Comments > MOO3 Patch
3. Re: Did you see that list of fixes? Jun 6, 2003, 20:09 rist3903
 
It would be folly for the company to put out a manual now. There will undoubtedly be a large amount of changes in the patch that comes after this one, rendering quite a bit of the new manual obsolete. Would you want them to release a new manual then? The only way to keep a manual up to date in a cost effective manner is to put it online. If they did so with a format that could be downloaded and printed then all the better.

edit: added the word 'after'
