It can only be good news that game publishers become conglomerated with entities like NBC, which in turn is owned by GE corporation, one of the multinationals that manufacture the engines of war. Hurray for the free market!

Make no mistake about this...corporate greed runs these companies just like any other company. The rank and file want to make games for a living -- the suits want to cash out and blow it on blow and hookers.

Batman just claimed that Valve's 'cheaper games' claims never happened.

I'm not sure that's true, considering Orange Box was at least 3 new games (Portal, TF2, Ep2) for $50. Value added if you havent played the old Valve games, since you also got HL2 and HL2E1.

Do your math, Batman.

This is the game where the mere assassination of Churchill leads to the invasion of the mainland USA by Axis forces, yes? Hmm, a bit far-fetched if you ask ,e.

When you get to the point where you insist that the people who actually made Team Fortress and are developing and updating TF2 are not 'REAL' players anymore, you've pretty gone off the deep end. THX4PLAYING SPONGE BAI

By who? TF2 players, or players of REAL Team Fortress games?

As a matter of fact, the Valve TF2 developers are not fond at all of 2Fort. It's up to you whether the TF2 developers fit your definition of 'REAL Team Fortress players'.

I personally also avoid 2Fort like the plague.

No, guys, you're all wrong. Jerkk has played played the game for 3 years and his acute mind, trained for years in game development unlike those morons at valve, has thoroughly analyzed TF2 and found the major weaknesses! He doesn't want to play rock-scissors-paper, he wants to play an old game that's now free to download! So obviously the optimal solution, according to his precise calculations, is to abandon the years of TF2 development and balancing, and make any class pick up any weapon whenever they want. So a scout should be able to pick up any heavy minigun and rampage around.

That sounds like fun, jerkk! Tell us when you're going to make that TF2 mod. We'll be all over it. God knows no one is playing this TF2 piece of crap right now. All the servers are empty and it's clear everyone would rather be playing Tribes. I pray to Almighty God that jerkk will save us from ourselves and fill this vast lacuna in our game-playing souls.

News Comments > Valve's Francke on Art Direction
42. Re: Slow Down Fellas Dec 12, 2007, 01:19 human
1) He doesnt say he creates a new art style. He says they're USING an existing art style to fit the game. The paintings and illustrations they refer to are listed in the PDF paper Dagok cited. They did an analysis of the 'look' of those paintings and more or less used it as the base of the TF2 look tweaking shaders to get the distinctive look.

2) He's not talking about old Nintendo games. they specifically mention new games like Crysis and how they are going more for 'realism' than any specific art direction

Exactly. Jeryyk the dumbass admits that TF2 classes are like loadouts. Therefore they are functionally equivalent. Picking a class from a menu is not any different than walking up to an inventory in tribes and clicking a loadout.

The fact is Jeryyk is a moron, and his prediction that TF2 will be dead within a year's time is just ignorant ranting.

Jerykk, you're talking out your ass. what the hell is 'flexibility within each class' supposed to mean? Do you want soldiers with heal guns, scouts with miniguns, and medics with grenade launchers? WTF? The whole dynamic of TF2 is that you can constantly switch classes to adapt to the tactical situation. You want TF2 to be tribes, for some reason.

Second, you spouted some shit about how all the weapons are the same. Laughable. Each class has a pretty unique spot in terms of range, firing speed, and clip size. Some weapons, such as demos and pyros, are extremely unique, as demo rounds are ballistic in nature and can bounce or arc over targets.

Really, play for more than 3 minutes before putting on your homemade 'academic gameplay professor' hat and spouting off shit about 'character class flexibility' and 'flexibility of player roles'.

Man, I thought they'd NEVER get around adapting Albert Camus. Here's hoping that it's a great adaption like the original DOS text game!

Yeah, but if you look at the achievements; it also tells you how few people are actually completing the game. Which I did, but as I said before, I think the game sucks and is just tedious and boring.

Only 48.1% of the players have gotten the Defense Of the Armament achievement. Which is at the end of the game. Which means only 48.1% of people have completed the game thus far.

Good thing you don't have any possible biases or anything. Because, first of all you have NO IDEA what a completion rate is for a PC game, and you know it. Saying '"only" 48% = VALVE S UXXX!!!!' is an unmitigated opinion, and a non sequitur at that. In fact, 1/2 of all players that ever attempted the game is, I would say, pretty fucking good, and I have just as much to support my opinion as you do -- none at all.

Still, in what world does 1/2 completion translate to 'few', for an optional piece of entertainment. If you told me that only half of people wipe their ass after they take a shit, I'd agree that's 'few'. If you said only half of Blue's News readers have graduated junior high, I'd agree that's 'few'.

But half of all attempters successfully finishing a pretty sophisticated computer game with quite a few different game dynamics is 'few'? Did you expect that everyone should finish? Based on what? Do you think all gamers are as hardcore badass as you are, since even you finished what you thought was a 'tedious and boring' game? Maybe 25% of them had a life and haven't finished it yet, maybe they're changing the baby's diapers or working on their pickup. And maybe the other 25% thought it sucked too, but weren't masochist assholes and just stopped playing the game when they felt it was boring?

CJ is a moron. "Richard Garriot (or whatever rank he is giving himself now)" does not imply that Richard is a rank. It simply implies that Richard Garriot likes to give himself ranks.

This is clear to anyone who has had a high school education. CJ, due to his idiocy, had to try to have a slam at me by purposely misunderstanding my words.

Interested in this game, I went to its website yesterday and tried to check out screenshots, backstory, etc. When I clicked on 'backstory', what I got was not just backstory written by Richard Garriott (or whatever rank he is giving himself now), no; instead, I got Garriott TELLING ME ABOUT HIM WRITING THE BACKSTORY. He talked about his 'motivation' for writing this and that.

What the hell? Is there any greater sign that one is self-obsessed when you can't present your creative work without discussing the AUTHORIAL PROCESS behind that creative work?

Zeph, take your bible-bashing bullshit somewhere else. Christianity is the only 'logical conclusion', yet faith is required for salvation? Bahahahaha. Where's the faith if the logical conclusion is belief? No faith required. Your thesis is self contradictory.

Also, too bad 2/3rds of the world population as of this moment are not Christians, hasn't reached that 'logical conclusion', and therefore, according to your dubious Bible, God the infinitely loving and infinitely forgiving Creator of the universe must send at least 4 billion human souls to hell to burn eternally because they didn't make the right choice about which religion, amongst the dozens in the world, is the 'logical conclusion'.

You and your religion are a joke.
