Uhh, Descent had it's day, but is there seriously ANY purpose for having a concern about money from those old games now? I can't imagine playing them now myself, they're just TOO effing old...

Well SOMEONE isn't old enough to have experienced nostalgia...

But yeah... I've hated Interplay stone they became EA before EA did. And this is why.

Believe me I'm more than old enough. I just don't like it enough I guess. *shrugs&* If someone wants to spend money on it, it's their money, 'm not judging them, Didn't like enough when it was new I guess.

Descent wasn't the best game single player wise, it's remembered primarily for multiplayer over kali/kahn and early LAN/modems over the net. Descent 1/2, Warcraft 2, doom 2, duke nukem 3d, etc were played over IPX emulators. Warcraft 2 had to be the biggest thing pushing internet gaming back then outside of doom 2, quake and unreal tournament.

Personally Freespace 2 is the game that definitely holds up from that era, descent 1/2 basically need to be re-imagined single player wise, their stories were not good and the best in the series story wise was descent 2. The atmopshere of D2 was really amazing for the time, the story was barebones but it gave you enough of a world to get immersed in. I always liked the voice actor for the material defender.

Just leaving this awesome clip here, the Freespace 2 open trailer:

I honestly I'm hung up on why people want machine guns in their home and think that is an ideal world to live in and/or think the boogie man is coming to get them and then praise be to the God of Love, Jesus. Hmmm...

It's proof we are just monkeys with a few extra brain cells, aka humans are better understood as still members of the animal kingdom, not civilization. Hate to say it but some people just have shitty genes which lead to certain nervous systems behaving strangely.

I've worked the industry, too. When something like this happens you pull the plug. You ever hear of the Chernobyl disaster? This level of incompetence is comparable. I've been in that situation. Much smaller scale, sure, but they hire you with the understanding that there is a chain of command and if that breaks down you pull the damn plug. History is full of lieutenants defying their superiors to great effect, but this is more akin to a bunch of chickens running around without their heads. A good employee stands up, takes command, and makes the decision.

I only say this because it is a clear sign that Valve's management style has started to lean a little bit too liberal. When you have a community like that, who takes responsibility? That's exactly why you have clear lines of authority. It's why management styles based around group hugs and improvised pow-wows don't work in a crisis. If this were any other company you'd expect someone to resign by now, right? You'd probably make fun of it - a scapegoat! Yet to not point even one finger is even more ludicrous.

It works on a small scale. It doesn't on a large one. It's why communism and socialism fail beyond the compounds that first tried it in the 19th century. Mankind has evolved to work in groups of up to 100 but we lose traction past that; it requires a different way of thinking. Valve needs to adapt its initially successful approach or it risks being swallowed up by the morass of prior technology upstarts.

The historical illiteracy your post displays is uncanny, do you know anything about the history of capitalism at all? You and most other idiots espousing utter nonsense. What do you think the spying is for? The elite fear people stop obeying the dictates of the rich and corporations and trying to change society for the better. If it were up to retards like you there'd be no social security or disability for the disabled, the cold war happened for a reason... rich people tend to oppress their society with unjust laws and wars for profit.

You really need to bone up on your history...

The (mass surveillance) by the NSA and abuse by law enforcement is just more part and parcel of state suppression of dissent against corporate interests. They're worried that the more people are going to wake up and corporate centers like the US and canada may be among those who also awaken. See this vid with Zbigniew Brzezinski, former United States National Security Advisor.

Lastly, why the hell would people even want to bother with this when digital games are very reasonably discounted all the time?

The bottom line is that people like to make a bunch of noise about insignificant crap and call it a noble crusade.

The bottom line is you're unaware of the degree of DRM and locked down nature of modern games compared to the 90's, the fact you'd say this means you're idiotic.

I notice they use the word "community", I dont hear that when the community ask for map editors. All I hear is that were too stupid to understand their superduper whamjam editors.

Tragically enough gamers taught game companies the vast majority of them are stupid. From quake 3 and mods to the modern desert of gaming which modding, dedicated servers and level editors have been held back to an extreme degree.

I mean, if they had to remake one, why didn't they remake best-in-class FF6 rather than one of the most overwrought entries in the series?

This is videogameland, and its square. Its highly likely to be a clusterfuck.

Pretty much, the fact that chris taylor wanted to make a MOBA with is kickstarter tells us volumes about the general shittyness of the game industry.

I don't think Dark Souls is all that challenging, and I don't mean that in the way "I'm so good at it" etc.

It's challening to everyone who was born yesterday and didn't play the blik of pre-2000 games, or never grew up on the NES/SNES/GENESIS.

The bulk of modern newer generation gamers are morons. Most games post 2004 ish have really gone off into newbie never never land never to return.

People who get a hard on for these games really is lacking the IQ or never grew up during the NES days through the early PC years of the 90's. There are NES games harder than dark souls and they aren't even that hard either.

Where do we draw the line? Every developer releases their own launcher for their game(s)? We'd end up with 100+ different launchers installed. Why is this necessary whatsoever?

The average gamer made that decision along time ago licking the boots of steam and paying for always online drm'd games like mmo's and diablo 3.

I remember the good old days when you didn't need a launcher to or a game mananger, you simply ran the game.

Well, a scam usually doesn't try to actually build what they promised..

Plenty of scams build what they promise but only to a half-assed degree, we have plenty of evidence from gaming kickstarters alone that this is the case. One can go to steam early access and see all the unfinished games the developers have given up on because they got that money no strings attached.

You'd think 3.4m is enough to build a drone (and it is)... until you read what they "claimed" that palm sized drone ought to be able to do. Which is all nice and all.. except You can't scale down batteries to palm size and still have more than 5m flight time while also shooting HD video and writing it to SSD (Which, believe it or not, actually requires a lot of power too)

Did none of the engineers ever actually tell the people in charge that?

It was a scam from the get go, lets be honest.

Fallen Enchantress and Sins of a Solar Empire are amazing PC games. I have faith.

The first few goes at FE sucked though apparently, and I hate GalCiv but others seem to love it.

I never played the original Galciv but I really dug galciv 2. I think it's just for those of us who love building and researching shit. AKA we love to manage the shit out of everything. The min/maxing. What I've always hated about civilization is running out of shit to research, so the original Galciv 2 was like my dream come true with a massive research tree. IIRC they patched it to widdle down the "redundant" research options but I always thought "Super Quantum lazer Mark 4" was a cool way to extend research in a way, where brad thought it was stupid, I thought it was pretty cool.

I always love having more options than less, I hate running out of shit to do in games, there's something cathartic about endless progress/growth.

You don't strike me as having sufficient brainpower if you call SC2 better than SC1.

All you're doing is calling him names and not backing anything up. Why do you feel SC1 was better? Give some examples.

I did back stuff up, in terms of story... the love interest in SC2 vs SC1 story makes no sense, aka raynor as a character has been retconned. In SC1 he had a vicious hatred towards kerrigan towards the end of of SC1. In SC2 he is somehow now in love with her for no reason, other than the original SC1 team had been disbanded and the wow crew papered over the story of SC1 with bullshit they dropped out of the sky. I've played SC1/SC2 recently so that's how I know how different both are, since I've played them back to back.

The next is Tassadar, the heroic sacrifice he made in SC1 and then in SC2 he pops out of nowhere with no warning or justification, it was all so forced... it was the worst bit of story telling I've seen in gaming history... it just goes to show you how World of warcraft basically wrecked the chances for good continuity for both Starcraft and Diablo's story, WoW made blizzard fat and lazy with all that MMO money rolling in.

Problems with SC2 Innovation Vs. SC1: At the time SC1 was released, we were moving from warcraft (clones of races) to the three innovative races of Starcraft 1. It was a step foward for RTS as a whole, a benchmark against other RTS games. Blizzard was breaking new ground in both gameplay and story at the time it was released. None of that is true with SC2, SC2 is by and large for hyper competitive koreans... basically the korean scene that developed in SC1's multiplayer community came to dominate in such a way as to limit innovation in SC2... aka the lack of freedom to experiment outside of traditional RTS gameplay, to come up with NEW ideas rather than the same old build base spam units, conquer your enemy.

I could go on but there are multiple reasons why that could take up pages...

Starcraft 1 story was bad too. You just didn't realize it 18 years ago. LOTV's story is certainly on par with what Blizzard has produced before.

The point was the lore and atmosphere they established in the original is gone because the original team no longer exists. That was the point, the game doesn't feel like a true sequel.


Yifes wrote on Nov 14, 2015, 11:01:
They have added so much more mission variety and gameplay mechanics, include mutually exclusive between mission upgrade choices, single player only units with overpowered abilities, etc that I find the singleplayer to be much more interesting and varied than the SC1 campaign.


I'm sorry but if you believe this, you are functionally braindead. RTS singleplayer is still about dragging units from point A to point b and overwhelming the enemy, like no strategy involved. RTS single player has always been generally crappy in RTS land, the problem is they made no new innovations. If you think those gimmicks are innovative you prove just how braindead the average gamer is.

SC1 is a better multiplayer game than SC2 (at least up to HOTS, we'll see if LOTV can recapture the glory days of Brood War MP), but the SC2 singleplayer campaign is significantly better than SC1.

If you believe the singleplayer campaign of SC2 is better than SC1 in terms of story you're an idiot. I was hoping for some real innovation in the single player portion of the game with SC2, what we got again was rehash with gimmicks.

And I think you're lacking the IQ to perform any serious analysis. You don't strike me as having sufficient brainpower if you call SC2 better than SC1. Let us not forget SC1 was a groundbreaking game at the time, SC2 did none of what blizzard used to be known for.

This game is fucking gorgeous! I say that without having purchased it yet of course, but from videos and stills it seems absolutely beautiful. I'm right in the target demographic though.

I'll definitely get it when it goes on sale, should be amusing and nostalgic enough to warrant a sale price buy.

Tragically enough, the game quickly gets repetitive. Fall of cybertron is still the best transformers game.

You do realize that WoL alone contained more missions than Starcraft 1? Regarding to playable content, SC2 is three full games. But hey, keep on ranting if that makes you happy.

You do realize that the single player is universally mundane and the story is bad and basically retcons the original universe of starcraft 1? SC2 is SC2 alternate universe... its like really bad fanfic. The missions in SC2 were standard fare and SC2 is still about multiplayer mainly, the sc2 campaign and missions I was never impressed by... its missing the charm of the original SC and broodwar, the atmosphere is much different... and that whole Rayner + kerrigan thing they retconned... at the end of SC1, raynor and kerrigan were mad enemies because of kerrigans atrocities, the idea that he would take her as a love interest is bizarre beyond belief.

I don't know what's more pathetic, ActiBliz buying CandyCrush for 5.9 billion, or Valve sinking all of their money into this ridiculous enterprise. You know as a PC gamer you're being led by a false prophet when his primary concern is making a more inferior console that's already out already.

All because Gabe Newell was so afraid of Windows8, yeah, cause "Games for Windows Live Xbox Marketplace" or whatever is so scary. Steam has become the primary place for games on Windows they fucking dominate that market, nothing else comes close. Time to start running away from that platform as fast as you can! Run Gabey run!

As soon as steam became a thing, it proved without a doubt the gaming masses are feeble minded. I held out on steam for years but newer generations of kids with no tech literacy fed the corproate DRM beast.

No one should expect great things from valve, they are the ones who popularized DRM and normalized it. So now almost all AAA games have gangrene steamworks shit inside them. No dedicated servers, everything locked down if its multiplayer to steam.

So I guess what I want to know is: what makes Fallout 4 new and exciting? What makes it fun? I was absolutely not impressed with this whole building gimmick and the companions don't really seem to add anything. So buy or wait for sale (if at all)?

It's the same old AAA schlock, new kiddies without any gaming history will eat it up as amazing, those of us who grew up on gaming during the 80's and 90's won't be impressed. It's just a new group of kids who are born yesterday compared to the older generation of gamers. Demographics and all that.

The problem is there's always a new batch of kiddies and most gamers are morons, lets be honest. The rise of DRM/MMO's/F2P proves the gaming masses, generally, are idiots.
