There are few companies that I would consider "evil". Monsanto is one of them. Or at the very least Satan sits on the board of directors.

You're saying open source projects are inherently less secure than closed source? There are pretty good decompilers around for most languages, so regardless of whether the hacker has access to your original code, he knows what it's doing and can look for vulnerabilities. Microsoft wishes it was otherwise.

A real April Fools joke would have been to have the game be GOOD for one day, then cruely take it away on April 2.

When the two guys who gave us the Quake 1 engine get together to work on something, it gets my attention. I still have Abrash's "Graphics Programming". Most of what's in it is over my head and/or outdated now, but I can still use it to beat an intruder to death if need be.

I'd be a little more concerned about the future of Torchlight, except now that D3 is actually fun, my arpg itch is taken care of.

Good luck to them!

Never fear, I hear that Baldree and Schaefer are going to work on an ARPG at their new studio, tentatively titled "Torchiablo."

I'm sure it will feature adorable pets that can do menial tasks for you.

I envy you Blue, reading the books for the first time was fucking awesome! Also, I highly recomend Martin's Fevre Dream. Its a rather strange novel but I found it to be at least as good as anything from the Ice and Fire saga and miles better than any of the convulted vampire shit that passes for fantasy or science fiction these days...

There are still fantasy and sci-fi books coming out all the time. Without vampires.

I have been reading Martin's fantasy series since he started it. I watched the first season of the show, but it pales in comparison with the books. (Plus, HBOs tendency to rip out sub-plots so that they can be replaced with more titty-time annoys me) So you probably have the right idea, Blue. I've seen plenty of movies that made me go read the book, and I enjoyed them both.

I was not sad to see Roslyn go.

I only started reading the books after the first couple of episodes of season 1 aired, but pretty much read them back to back (and didn't have too long to wait for A Dance with Dragons). The books are much better than the show, and I'd recommend reading them BEFORE watching the show...the payoff is much better from the books. If the show spoils a scene in the books, it won't be as good when you read it. And I still enjoyed the show, because I was always looking forward to seeing how they pulled off key moments from the books.

Maybe if we just starting saying "MolyYES" instead of "MolyNO", Molyneux would make something as good as Dungeon Keeper again.

I don't know why Sony didn't make PS4 at least backwards compatible with PS3 PSN releases. just complicates things more.

If the code is written for a proc that no longer exists in the box (the cell), it wouldn't work...

ps4 is x86 based.


That, and emulators require the host hardware to be much more powerful than the cpu they are emulating. Is the PS4 much beefier than the PS3? I don't keep up with these things.

From the screenshots, it looks like they lost the high contrast. Looks a lot better now.

Yes, this is the weird UE3 b/w game with the odd high contrast style.

I was disappointed (but only a little) by the True Detective conclusion. First 5 episodes were awesome, but the last 3 reminded me of why i hated The X Files...loose threads were never tied up. But it was still better than 99% of what's on TV.

It's so lame when they remake a map from the previous game. I'm sure anyone who plays these games has already put a 1000 hours into that map already.

I won't lie - when the board was down I found video game news dull. I don't just want to see the news, I like knowing what a group of largely intelligent people think about the news.

Yup, completely agree. I briefly skimmed when the comments were down, then proceeded to be bored for the next three hours.

i would see an interesting story and wonder what you guys would say. Blues is better for its comments. Well, some of them, at least.

I wish we had a Linux guy here...application server shit itself over too many open file handles, and who had to dig around the kernel parameters? This guy!

Why do you have a Linux server if you don't have a Linux guy? Confused

Because management won't pay for a competent sys admin, and me and my boss know enough to get things working (though not necessarily optimal). I'm not a sys admin, I'm a dba, so poking around os stuff doesn't leave me with warm fuzzy feelings.

I can't get this game to work. When I first got it on Steam and installed, it worked fine, but after an update, it just hangs on "Installing...". I end up having to restart the computer and stop the update from re-downloading just to keep using Steam.

I miss the days when FPS levels weren't railroad tracks, and the main character didn't speak.
