'Rogue has been gone for years.'

Same company... Rogue changed their name to Raven...

'So you're saying id sold the rights to the Quake 2 universe for two fledgling companies to make expansions for Quake 2?'

Rogue is/was hardly a fledgling company. I guess they were so fledgling that they couldn't afford to have put out Hexxen either, right? They're now Raven software. No idea if Xatrix was fledgling or not.

And none of this is accusation or conjecture, it's fact. Anyone that was active in the gaming community back then was more than aware of the practice, which jasn't changed at all. It's no different than one developer paying another developer to use their game engine (Duke Nukem Forever anyone? How many engines have they paid licensing fees for now? 4-5?).

'Quake 2 had outsourced expansion packs'

Neither expansions were outsourced. Rogue and Xatrix bought the license to use the code. There's a huge difference between outsourcing (cheap) and paying id for the right to use their code.

60. This was almost believeable... Mar 4, 2008, 06:16 Lesaonar
I love a good intelligent rant. But this definitely isn't one of them. Not even 3 paragraphs in he complains, and I quote 'One guy went so far as to say he'd bought the retail game and it was having the exact same crashes, so it must be the game itself. This was one of the most vocal detractors, and we got into it a little bit. He swore up and down that he'd done everything above-board, installed it on a clean machine, updated everything, still getting the same crashes. It was our fault, we were stupid, our programmers didn't know how to make games - some other guy asked "do they code with their feet?". About a week later, he realized that he'd forgotten to re-install his BIOS update after he wiped the machine. He fixed that, all his crashes went away. At least he was man enough to admit it.'.

Anything else past that has as much credibility as that statement alone. He's essentially saying that any time one wipes their HD, they need to reapply a BIOS flash. Irony at it's finest. Complain about someone not being able to play the game, due to lack of understanding of their hardware, yet hasn't even a scintilla of knowledge regarding what he's complaining about? That whole paragraph is nothing but falacy, which puts any other statement he made into question.

Actually this will affect gameplay. Think about it.

Sorry I should've said game mechanics, which is the only thing nerfing covers. And it's only going to affect gameplay if you actually need that to make the game world as it was originally written. Or need to finally be able to pull your pud to a digital rendering of a woman you'd never get to see that way in RL. Not all of us are pimply faced little geeks that need digital nudity to make our lives seem more fulfilled. I'll look to my wife for any RL nudity I'll need.

Either way, it's not that important.

Sorry mate, but this is hardly nerfing the game as it's not going to remotely affect gameplay.

Just let the game die allready. Was a great idea at the time, now it's just an albatross around any company's neck.

Can't pirate an MMO? Someone's been living under a rock... Never heard of emulated servers? Especially WoW. Easily downloadable client from blizzard, quick change to a single file and you just pirated the entire game.

Free to play, but you still have to pay the $60 for the software. Beta'd it and no way in hell would I bother.

Unfortunately, using the BBB isn't going to do a whole lot. There's nothing they can do to stop the NIMF from making false statements. A defamation class action is a different story, as long as the original documentation can be found as used as evidence.

Maybe it's just me, but possibly more a perception ideology. I don't see jesus at all in the ultrasound, what I do see is the grim reaper with his right arm up flipping the bird. I'm not being sarcastic either, that's exactly what I see

8. Yet another rushed expansion... Oct 4, 2005, 18:25 Lesaonar
This one'll be a flop just like TOA. I still have friends on Pendragon (test server) and Midgard part of this expansion is still bugilicious from what they say. WTG Mythic... So glad I cancelled my subscription about a year ago.

The WoW 'ilness' was an actual game bug that's now been fixed.

11. ... Dec 8, 2004, 14:46 Lesaonar
I played Pendragon (test server) and Pendragon only for 3+ years. Got into every closed beta and this is no different than any of the prior expansions and a lot more like EQ. TOA started the EQ mentality with DAoC, Catacombs adds to it. More timesinks with little worthwhile content/backstory, new classes that are far from balanced, updated graphics that look worse than the originals and the list goes on and on.

Mythic is a sham, and almost all the people I regularely played with on Pendragon are gone. Can only take so much of the same old same old and complete disregard to testers input before you finally decide to click cancel, break your CD's and delete any/all evidence that this mockery of an MMOG ever even was resident on the HD.

Placing any type of trust in any statement made by Mr. Broussard is like investing in the Phantom game console. Game's been vaporware for years now. Anyone with an IQ higher than a parboiled potato would realise that.
