2. Re: No subject Aug 19, 2008, 12:51 House
I've spoken with Hal, and have watched several video interviews with him. He's actually a very sharp speaker, full of memorable phrases and quotes, and definitely the type of person you'd want to put out in front of the public. This is probably just a poor transcript or else Hal was having a bad day. Also, everybody drinks a lot at the SOE Fan Faires, from what I've heard

5. Is anyone really going to pay for this? Aug 7, 2008, 16:49 House
I finished the first episode and got a little over halfway through this one (before it hardlocked my machine and lost all my progress). The art is fun, but the gameplay is so repetitive. How could anyone maintain their sanity through 20+ episodes?

Also, I'm not sure I really understand the premise, that fairy tales can be made darker by adding lots of fart jokes.

Just based on the video, Blade & Soul is the best looking MMORPG I have ever seen. Its combat looks better than that of many single-player games.

And yes, I realize the eventual game could suck.

15. I don't know which side to take Jul 31, 2008, 18:58 House
Wasn't there a game back in the day that didn't have the rights to Michael Jordan but had a "Player #23", or something like that, on the Bulls roster? I'm sure the player was represented as a muscular African-American about 6'6".

How many different excuses can Crytek come up with to explain why their game sold like shit?

15. Re: Princess Bride? Jun 19, 2008, 06:50 House
I like the eclectic news, the space given to indie titles, even if this particular game stunk. I'm a gamer, meaning I enjoy good games, whether Peggle or Portal, Harvest Moon or Halo.

Yeah, I too originally came to Blue's for Quake news, but honestly, man, how long ago was that? That scene was great, but it's over. Or maybe I just grew up.

5. Re: if you didn't have enough Jun 18, 2008, 16:49 House
This is a collection of five really generic flash games with good art.

I guess if you're a Princess Bride super-fan it might be worth it, but there are plenty of free flash games out there for everyone else.

22. Not that bad Jun 4, 2008, 12:46 House
I played through the demo and didn't think it was that bad. Visually it looks pretty old, of course, but the driving feels pretty good. If the missions were a little more varied, and the scoring more interesting (something as simple as earning medals and titles, for instance), it would be a good game.

I played the demo. It was at least a zillion times more fun than Ship Simulator. The buses actually felt decent with the keyboard.

But it looks like crap and gets boring pretty quickly, as one might expect. As one little aspect of something like GTA IV, along the lines of the taxi missions, I could see this working.

I agree, you know a game is good when it's fun despite all of the bugs and performance issues this one shipped with.

Load times are for me probably a half or third what they were before. Save times are a couple of seconds at the most.

You guys should have watched Abominable instead. It's "better" than Sasquatch, or something like that.

This game is rinky-dink but I did play it up to level 15, the previous free-play limit. I might actually reinstall it now that you can go up higher. It's not that great, and under no possible definition is it an "MMO", but it's sometimes fun for a quick session.

The world designer job is an entry-level position, with industry experience not even preferred. This means salary will be abysmal, and the hours will be hellish, which is probably fine with whoever lands the job as he will simply be delighted to be quitting his shit job and moving to Austin to make games for a living.

Nobody with "experience in this industry", unless you count testers, will be applying for the job.

I couldn't beat Chessmaster 2000 back in the 80's, and it's not as though additional chess rules can be implemented, or as though graphics make a difference.

23. Re: Bottled water Aug 2, 2007, 05:17 House
The other day I brought a couple of bottles of water (Arrowhead spring water) with me on a trip to a museum, but as it was a hot day I drank it all up halfway through the trip. I didn't want to buy the gift shop's absurdly overpriced water, so I figured I'd just fill my bottles up at the drinking fountain. Unfortunately it was one of those fountains where the water barely trickles out, so I headed into the bathroom and filled the bottles at the sink. Luckily I was outside when I went to take a sip, as I was literally forced to spit it out on the sidewalk, it was so foul.

That's why I drink bottled water. At home, I don't mind the tap water as long as it's filtered. But there's no telling what the water will be like wherever I'm at when I'm out. Occasionally it's good but usually it's pretty bad. I could care less how "pure" and "healthy" the tap water is, if it tastes terrible.

I honestly think that most people who ridicule bottled water are not water drinkers. Or else their taste buds are shot.
