We also get a lot more native PC games than in the 90s, look at Steam. Most of the F2P games I've used I've never laid out a penny for either.

I'm sorry to tell you but this is bullshit, many of the "native" games on PC are also totally locked down thereby basically defeating the essence of what we had in the 90's.

Almost all AAA are ports or are DRM/crapware infested, so it basically defeats the purpose.

i really hope they hit the pvp.... i am worried that they won't :(.

They are trending toward $3.2M so they should make it easily.

And if for some strange reason they don't, I'm sure we'll see it as the first expansion.

They'll be a last rush before it ends like always. They have a track record. So people have confidence.

I hate PoE. It felt horribly poorly made, and not because it had "niche appeal".

Sorry to say it but if you believe it was poorly made, you haven't played the baldurs gates games in ages. PoE is easily better than Baldurs gate 1 and Icewind dale. Planescape Torment is still tops however.

Good idea.

Problem is everything is easily compromised, due to them having the resources to intercept things or have companies leave hidden backdoors:

Just like how books were going to destroy our memories too... every advance has people decrying it... we adapt as we always have.

There are always trade offs, what we get by offloading memory is we can use those cognitive resources for other things. Plus the internet acts as a giant thought error correction tool.

We can find true information and it annoys the shit out of the elites, things that were hidden can now be found at lightning speed like this:

HoSpanky wrote on Oct 8, 2015, 12:42:
The people complaining that it's "just voice acting" and "their demands are unreasonable" haven't done an ounce of reading on this. The demands are...pretty reasonable. Asking for an extra $3300 for every two million copies sold is VERY reasonable. Asking to be paid extra for "stressful" recording isn't unreasonable. They don't mean "when I sound stressed", they mean "when they want me to yell myself hoarse for 6 hours, ruining my voice for several days". Think about how much yelling there is in games. It's a lot!

Initially I thought this was silly, like most everyone on here. Read into it, it's not absurd.

Most game acting is pretty bad but I agree if their demands are modest, but we may being fed FUD or PR. Many people who are voice actors aren't exactly poor.

Dungeons 2 could have been a good game but man they released it in a totally unfinished state. You can tell the game wasn't finished at release.

Give the art assets to High Moon and let them make a game out of it. War of/Fall of Cybertron were rock solid.

Problem was the multiplayer coding was shit and the game modes in multiplayer were limited because the game was locked down and had no level editor.

It's the Unreal engine, multiplayer was/is fine.

Sorry to tell you the multiplayer was gimped, the game constantly switching hosts and had serious problems when people were lagging. Also the matchmaking was pretty bugged before they patched it.

Bub wrote on Sep 22, 2015, 08:07:
Luv how the Kickstarter honchos are painting themselves as holy holies, while their system perpetrates scams like Star Citizen and other "early access" type games. I don't see them requiring the users of the site to post information frequently like stocks have to. They have essentially created a stock market with virtually no rules or regulation, so slick guys can soak many for millions.

I understand your beef with star citizen but the regular AAA game world is a just as much a disaster. DRM'd games out the wazoo, encryption, the fact they are trying to get games encrypted and stream them from the other side of the net.

Star citizen seems benign compared to the push by the big companies to take away our rights completely to own anything.

mordor is super duper short.. shortest game in recent memory

its open world but it doesnt even have tons of side shit.. handful of main missions, handful of side missions, handful of collectible BULLSHIT... thats it
What? I played the main quest and did most of the "side shit" and racked up 40 hours of play time. It's not short.

It's short because the time wasted travelling is filler, aka traversing the map eats most of those hours.

Ad-blocking is theft now? Really??

Yup. Just like piracy.

Piracy is different, you're taking something that took the creator effort to make which is also normally charged money for.

Except that corporations stole the public domain and made all sorts of corrupt IP laws, thereby disqualifying themselves. Corporations calling gamers pirates is like The mafia calling everyday citizens thieves for trying to protect their rights to own the shit they buy.

Consider all the broken and defunct games and the confiscation of videogames from mmo/f2p/drm'd games. A whole period of game history will just disappear down an IP black whole because most people are too stupid about their rights and how corrupt the world really is.

I'll wait and see, I hope the editor isn't gimped. If the game is locked down that would explain why they are pimping the editor, aka no importing models or modifying the game. If the game has matchmaking and is locked down its game over for the multiplayer.

<sigh> I miss QuakeCon, not that I ever went. I miss the era when id was the unquestioned ruler of the FPS, and their games just dominated my life.

Ruler? Hardly. DOOM and Quake were good no doubt but there was ton of other FPS' that were much better. iD was never really much more than tech company.

Doom 2 LAN was amazing, quake 1 wasn't that great single player but multi it was good, it was one of the first internet games so people remember it fondly alongside games like Warcraft 2 and Descent2 over kali/kahn.

Either way during the mid 90's duke 3D, unreal and quake were the fps to get. You're misremembering the past there. iD's downfall started after quake 3.

Rules? Have we lost the notion that The People have inalienable rights? Rules that protect people imply that rights are not inalienable but are granted under their graces.

Previously there were no clearly stated 'rules' while they secretly violated our inalienable rights. So human rights don't matter? Only the rules and regulations count?

Under the new guidelines, agencies will have to delete data collected from phones outside of the one targeted within 30 days

Oh, now they're 'guidelines.' Oh now I feel safe and so free!


They fear political awakening. All our rights are null and void before the fears of former national security advisors and the upper class generally.

D3 is the best ARPG since Sacred 2, IMO.

This is actually a sad thing when you think about it, given that many of us hated what they did to the world of diablo and how the game doesn't even really feel like a sequel to the first two games from a game world point of view. It's like diablo alternate universe. The whole game feels like really bad fanfiction.

Reality is there is no truly great ARPG yet, Path of exile was close but the whole item/economy is weird and the stupid net issues.

Right there with ya. Started with the Monster3D from Diamond and then the Voodoo 2's from them. I think my first card that replaced the Voodoo 2 was the Nvidia TNT card.

It really wasn't until Geforce 2 that 3dfx went to shit, that and them buying STB instead of remaining a chip company. That really fucked up their company trying to distribute their own boards.
