So if Sun goes under, does the linux platform go with it?

Or could it be better for the linux platform because sun doesn't get to control it?

Either way I'm worried, cuz I have a lot of stuff running out there that counts on java (including my career)

Sorry to burst your bubble joen51. But I've played tons of demos and tons of games for the last 10 years, and here is my conclusion.

9/10 times when they say this isn't the final look/feel of the the game because it's just a beta or a demo... it ends up being the same when it comes out. It's deadlines vs gameplay, and since deadlines are usually the priority of the "higher-ups"... that's what takes precedence.

You are fooling yourself if you tink Black Hawk will be any better when released.

And why shouldn't the public get mad if the GFX aren't state-of-the-art?

I'm still on a p3 700 and an old GF2 gts for that very reason. No games out now need much higher, and those that do at the moment are just bloated peices of garbage that aren't worth my time.

Keeping my fingers crossed for doom3.

If all you aspire to be is a memory, then you might as well kill yourself right now.

Meaning, the definition of your own existence is the fact that you think or have conciousness. It doesn't comfort me one bit that I could be remembered.

Hi Blue,
Just a really quick question. Your FAQ wasn't much help.
Where is bluesnews.com hosted? do you have a T3 in the office? is it colocated, is
it using dedicated hosting somewhere?

I'm in search for a reliable dedicated hosting company (such as rackspace.com). But there is just SOO much out there.

Is this just an ALL ATI card driver package?

So "detonator" is all nvidia cards, "catalyst" drivers are for all ATI cards.

And "Decapitator" is for what, intel drivers or something?

how about "large iguana" drivers

I agree!

That's what happens when a game is in development for 3+ years.

It finally comes out, and the gfx engine looks 3years old

I dunno, maybe it would be smarter to write the entire game, and save the GFX for last. Do as little GFX as you can untill it's ready... then you design the last 6months or so based on the hardware that's coming out.

Infantryman, you managed to write a paragraph on nothing. Or at least you didn't say anything. Allow me to elaborate:

you wrote:
"Who's going to have a review/preview besides a fansite or a magazine-type site? Would you find this preview on www.ilovemicrosoft.com, for example?"

Ummm, a magazine-type site is not as biased as a planetside fansite. You just equated the two, which is completely illogical, and irrelevant.

You wrote: "Plus, most of the "unbiased" sites have the same feeling."

Umm what feeling? are they happy? are they sad? wtf does that mean? If all unbiased site are saying the same thing, then perhaps that's a sign that we can trust what they are saying.

You wrote:
" I've personally been looking forward to Planetside since I heard of it a good while ago, back in the day where all that was known was "massively multiplayer first person shooter." Previews of any sort help people decide what to think... just have to read a lot to become well informed."

I wasn't dissing planetside, I was giving a warning about how you should take reviews of a game from that same game's fansite with a grain of salt.

I am however skeptical, of all games that I know of that have been in development for this long end up being a big dissapointment when they come out. Why? because the software technology is like 2-3years old, and shotty.

Just look at Halo... which STILL isn't out on PC yet!

Of course! why not trust a review/preview of a game to be objective when it's on "Planetside Universe" website.

Tell you what, why don't you go read the reviews of the latest Microsoft Operating System to come over at Www.IloveMicrosoft.com , makes perfect logical ubiased sense to me!!

I'd hate to seem cold hearted, and keep in mind I have a cat of mine own.. and am not sure what I would do in this situation.


But... most people I know let their cats die when they get cancer. I suppose it's expensive, and people associate a cat with nature, therefore they must die natures way.

A cat with cancer suffors.. and it has no voice in the matter. It might rather be dead, if it could conceive of such things.

It's a common problem.. this game has been in development for WAY TOO LONG.
This looked good about 2years ago when I saw a preview.
I hate to say it, but it's GFX are just dissappointing compared to other games coming out shortly.

From my experience, a company usually desides to make a sequel of something. Because the first one was so successful. People often just buy the sequel because the first was so good.

In this case the first Aquanox was a total disaster, every review site flamed them. The GFX were kinda neat.. but the game had literally no fun gameplay value. They even lost money on the whole project.

At least the failure of this one might ensure the company goes under.. and doesn't torment us with a 3rd Aquanox

let's see.... this is about the 10th time they have released a driver that offers a 25% increase.. thus my card must be 250% faster than it was when I got it!!

Better to play the leaked alpha now, cuz when you spend money on the finished product (in 2008), you won't be so impressed by the graphics.

Personally blue that's a noble post shaking your finger at the evil pirates. But let's be honest here, I'm sure you'd love to take a crack at the alpha leak. Doom3 is the most anticipated game of the new millenium.

When intel will sacrifice good architechture design, for a cpu that can achieve 3ghz simply because it sells, then yes we have a problem.

Don't be fooled, you really think Intel board of directors, and shareholders really care about the architecture of their cpus? No.. they want profit, they want good marketing, and they want a bloated HZ number to appear next to whatever they are selling.

Intel with it's cash for R&D could have easily designed a chip that had a modest mhz rating, which had a more efficient design, running on less voltage, able to outperform current P4s, but they had to produce the MHZ. It's all the average consumer cares about.

Look up how piplining works on p4s, along with a few other things which they shouldn't have done. It's a mess.
