Carmack: "We do not see the PC as the leading platform for games,"
Me: I don't see id as a leading developer for games. In fact, far from it.

Yup this is when you have a nation run by lawyers and fictional entities (corporations)that own language.
The only way to win is not to play.

Except for that part where Mojang is attempting to trademark literally every single instance where the word 'scrolls' might ever be used.
I haven't read the legal stuff, so if that's true, then Mojang gets what's coming to them. But my understanding was they just tried to trademark "Scrolls". And if they were trying to trademark every possible use of "Scrolls" then why would they have offered up to not trademark Scrolls at all and instead trademark “Scrolls: <some subtitle>”, to which Bethesda said not good enough.
So please link where it says they tried to trademark any instance of Scrolls.

I'm pretty excited. Since I 12 years old playing Wolf3D, a major id release was a Big Deal. In fact, memories of my adolescence can almost be partitioned around id releases.
Of course, it isn't nearly the same these days. I don't really get all that excited about video games in general anymore, and my expectations aren't all that high, but there is definitely a little part of me that has that same feeling when I was running home with the shareware version of Doom on a couple of floppies, or waiting the hour or so it took to download the five-odd megabyte Quake test demo (god, that seemed to never end).

If Mojang gets the copyright on the word 'scrolls' Bethesda is in a deep pile of crap because Mojang could go after them for just having the word in their games title. When it comes to a companies bread and butter they are not going to take the good intentions and word of someone if they potentially have the power to royally fuck things up. Even the very idea of copyrighting a single word is stupid. Notch is Tim Langdel. You can't own a commonly used word. Period. If mojang would have called this something else with multiple distinct words and then tried to copyright it this case would not be happening. I hope Bethesda cleans Mojangs clock for even trying this crap.
It's just more legal bullying from Bethesda. Hopefully they will lose this, just like they have lost every time in the Interplay case(s).

Wow...that is a kick to the balls of PC gamers and the people that made him all of this previous money and fame....Gamestop? Really? A console store? Why not promote a local PC game store or at least a big box store that sells PC games.....
There will be a very large % of the people there that don't even know who he is!!!!! I am sure it will even take a while for him to get noticed!!!

Trolling like hell indeed.
No, see trolling is what you were doing in the BF3 threads talking about RO2.
But when someone talks about RO2 in an RO2 thread and shares their opinion about that game, you call it trolling. Moron.
I've heard nothing but bad things about RO2 from all except the most die-hard fanboys...like ASeven.

Have you seen how quick you can build a ghosted volume on a SSD? I execute a scrip and by the time my coffee is done brewing I have a fresh win partition to clutter up again. SSD to SSD data transferring is bonkers fast. It almost makes it fun
I always reformat my system when I hit a performance snag, totally believable
SpectralMeat wrote on Sep 23, 2011, 11:57:That's what I thought. So I reformatted my system, installed the latest drivers, and still get dramatically bad FPS. UT3 looks much better than RO2 and has larger maps with much more detail - its rare for my system to dip below 200fps with everything maxed. RO2 is running at 40-60fps while looking terrible and having much less going on. Its not my system. It's TWI's crap programmers. Their reach far exceeds their grasp. They really should have used UDK to develop this. You can't break core engine functionality and royally mess things up to the point they are presently at. For some reason TWI saw fit to go and mess with systems that no other UE3 projects bother touching since the systems work. There is a reason their programmers were not in the industry already: they should have stuck with office software.EddieTheHack wrote on Sep 23, 2011, 11:53:
You are some kind of idiot bro. I have a GTX 590. The game looks like COD 2 and plays like a slide show.
There might be some other problems with your system then. I have a single GTX 570 and the game runs at around 60-90 fps with every graphical details maxed out at ultra settings 1080p rez.

RO2 is playable and a fun experience already.
The morons who whine about performance have subpar hardware and put everything on ultra. Then proceed to complain that it doesnt run as well as crappy console games.
Hint: this is a PC game, not a console port. The level of details on each map is enormous, with LOS extending to the horizon (weather allowing). Add 64 players running around... They modeled every little stone that litters the streets in 3D, the destructed wall edges also have every small detail.
So yeah, it will stress out your 470 and core 2. Running a moderately powerful setup here, and everything runs smooth on high detail (my vid cards are not up to date).

Yeah, that would be nice. Surely it will come one day though.
It will probably cost $20 by then though, so I probably should have waited.
