News Comments > GameStop Honoring DNF Preorders
8. Re: GameStop Honoring DNF Preorders May 30, 2011, 18:19 007Bistromath
 
The key phrase here is "provided the customer has a receipt."

I'm pretty sure the only people who still have the receipt for a DNF pre-order from more than a year ago are the ones who framed it.

Where "multiple" means "two?" Why the hell are we supposed to care about this?

RPGs are about choice and consequence. If you choose to focus on certain stats over others, you must face the consequence of not being proficient in some areas. If you can respec, these consequences do not exist because you always just change your stats whenever needed.
Except that respeccing usually comes with some kind of significant cost which pretty well represents the research/acquisitions concept I was talking about. Don't forget that RP stands for Role Playing; having your choices artificially restricted is not a reasonable consequence. The total inability of a character in a system without respecs to occasionally change direction to adapt to new situations is largely a limitation of abstraction, not a desirable trait.

I'm all for no respec. It defeats the whole point of character development if you can change your stats at any time.
You don't really know what character development is, do you? The idea that a character researching new topics in their field or buying new specialist equipment or whatever somehow harms the narrative is...

Well, I'm just thinking maybe you should get a copy of Urquhart's plaque.

The decision is stupid, but I find this guy's loopy defense of it much more interesting. Somebody give that dude a plaque that says "Great Communicator."

Sad that a game with no redeemable qualities sells so well, and so many awesome games never break even.
Its name is it's redeeming quality. If you don't think the word "sniper" can sell a million by itself, you don't know shooter kids very well.

How does this game manage to have a serious "e-sport" community if it has no LAN capability?

Oh, right. People are stupid and will buy goddamn anything. *headsmack*

News Comments > Tamte Calls Out Kotick on Indies
25. Re: Tamte Calls Out Kotick on Indies Sep 23, 2010, 20:46 007Bistromath
 
The hilarious thing here is that Tamte has basically screwed us all over with his misguided challenge. He's giving Kotick ideas: there is now a non-zero probability that he will make an online-only version of Black Ops available, and charge us a monthly for it in the process. He's been quoted several times as planning to do exactly that with this series, and Tamte has basically just stared him in the eyes and said "do it, faggot."

News Comments > Frozen Synapse Preorder Discount
5. Re: Frozen Synapse Preorder Discount Sep 10, 2010, 07:33 007Bistromath
 
Has the discount not actually been posted to the website yet? It looks like it's still the same price, to me.

Jerykk: preorders get a copy to give to a friend. I think it'll probably be cheaper after release. Kind of a weird model, but it makes sense since preorders are funding the development.

"Some of you feel that this does some kind of injustice to your brothers in arms, so we're going to allow you to pretend it doesn't exist while still selling it to everyone else. We're doing this because we respect the fact (which we pulled out of our ass) that you can't handle things that make you upset as much as people who don't travel to foreign countries to get shot at for something they don't believe in."

Crossposting from slashdot, but you can't tell me it ain't true.

News Comments > DOTA TM Controversy
12. Re: DOTA TM Controversy Aug 17, 2010, 17:06 007Bistromath
 
This is paranoia. We're talking about Valve, here. They are the reason mod communities have not been totally marginalized in this industry.

If anything, Valve taking on the project to make a standalone game out of it will make it more free to the public. I neither have nor want Warcraft III, so I've never touched DotA. I barely know what it is. When Valve does their thing, there's at the very least going to be a demo, and that will give me a reason to think about it at all.

And I'm not here to "Tell it like it is," I'm just asking you guys use a tiny bit of common sense. Just a shred.
The thing is, we're not being anti-corporate here, we're refusing to put our trust in a known liar. I'll give you that it's unlikely they'll try to charge for MW2 MP, since I'm pretty sure it would technically be breach of contract. The thing is, gamers as a whole have a long history of getting ass-raped by huge devs and doing absolutely nothing about it, and nobody is as good as capitalizing on this as Activision. You can't put anything past them, even if it is not exactly probable, and Robert Bowling is definitely the last person it makes sense to listen to. The man would say that golf balls are square if he thought it would make Activision any money.
