Homeworld Catyclysm was standalone I think.

I never understood that.. They claim its so you can buy the sequel without having to buy the original...thats fine..but who does that? I can't even conceive of buying an expansion and not buying the original product...or buying the expansion 1st, original 2nd

If I'm even remotely interested in a sequel/expansion. I always start at the beginning.

1. Star Trek Legacy Feb 24, 2006, 21:24 VoodooV
 
ok, so I haven't read the article, just the blurb on the main blues page. I'm reading the part about how hes a trekkie, and it just occurred to me. "so what?" how is him being a fan supposed to convince me they're making a good game? In fact, could it be quite the opposite...could being a fan be a detriment...could he get so caught up in one tiny aspact that he, as a fan, focuses on, while ignoring something that might be critical to good gameplay.

I mean shit, he could care more about making sure the Enterprise isn't travelling to Starbase 112 in the Who'Givss'A'Fuck Sector when any true diehard fan knows that Starbase 112 is actually in the I'Don't'gettalaid Planetary Cluster Region. meanwhile, in the real world, the game sucks ass and is boring.

how does being a fan make a good game? really.

I'm not denying that Wing Commander did suck..I'm just saying it had the largest potential to not suck of all the video game movies I can recall.

cuz seriously...Tomb Raider? Mario Bros? please..garbage in, garbage out

I still think the Wing Commander movie had a decent shot at being a first 'good' video game movie. It had such potential..lots of big star names.

but OMG did Roberts screw the pooch on that. Pilgrims, Kilrathi look nothing like cats...I mean WTF?

seriously, all he had to do is stick with what we loved about the games and he would have had a slam dunk. Cuz how often is the creator of the games also the director of the movie. But no..he had to take things in a new direction..argh!

I'm not talking about Aftermath...I'm talking about HL2. I'm not going to rehash the previous thread's rant about whether or not episodic content is a good thing for consumers

glad I'm not the only one to look at the overview and selling points and scrunch my brow.

so, anyway, I still haven't played HL2 (I still really can't stand Steam, but thats not really stopping me) Exactly when do we see the cost cutting benefits of digital delivery? Last I checked, the price of this game still hasn't gone down significantly.

we use McAfee at work...their anti-spyware is a joke..never catches a thing. And their anti-virus breaks a lot of our apps so its a pain to have to install it last..or disable/re-enable...etc

News Comments > Halo 2 for Windows Vista Planned
102. No subject Feb 9, 2006, 22:50 VoodooV
 
I've said it before, and I'll say it again:

Halo1 was good, not great. I want to play Halo2, but can't stand console FPSes, nor will this influence me to get Vista any sooner.

grow up MS

though to be fair, this *is* how they killed W95 as a gaming platform. what was it..DX8 was the last version you could install on W95, DX9 would only install on 98SE or higher right? How many of us refused to touch W2K as a gaming platform until they did that?

ok I'm a little confused. first we were mad at MS's choice of the 2 SKU approach since it would pretty much guaruntee that no one took advantage of the HD and we all were hateful towards the core package.

now there IS a game that requires the HD and now we're angry at MS yet again cuz we're pissed it screws over the people who bought the core?

I thought we *wanted* to screw over the people who bought the core and we *wanted* the HD to be a requirement so that those who bought the core felt stupid and those of us who bought the premium could give MS the bird for not having just 1 SKU in the first place

??

what am I missing here or is this generic *grr..M$ is the devil* grumbling.

Didn't the original C&C cheat with the AI..maybe I'm thinking of another game, but I remember surrounding the enemy AI base once, and they simply never ran out of resources despite me demolishing their harvesters as soon as they left the manufacturing center.

btw, I'm buying this on principle alone...was never a huge fan of RTS games, but more companies need to take the time to update abandonware to run on modern computers....there is a market for it!

while i'm enthusiastic for the movie. I'm skeptical of any mmog based on a movie.

cuz yeah, James Cameron is obviously the missing element that suddenly makes movie mmog's good *rolls eyes*

Do you think everyone who donates blood does it out of good will?

its a helluva lot more likely that someone gives blood out of good will than it is that someone gives money out of good will

people tend to want things for money....once blood is out of you, its not really doing you good anymore, so might as well give it to someone who can use it.

But that's right, him putting his own time and money into charitable products -- that's not worthy.

where in the article does it say that he gave his time? he wrote a check dumbass.

As for the rest of your shit -- I'm unsurprised you stooped to those standards. It's par for the course for you. But you can't actually back up your statements with rational arguments, so why not start comparing others to whores?

look who's talking, I've had to correct you and yours 3 times now cuz of your idiotic attempts to put words in my mouth so really are you arguing against what I said..or what you imagined I said? make up your mind.

lol...50 gallons. THAT's what you're going to nitpick me on?

weak.

but fine, i'll come down to your level. Cuz yeah..donating blood at 70 actually would be impressive feat, knowing that something you did directly impacted the lives of many people. unlike the cold exchange of money where the question of motive will always be there...is it a tax break...is it just to improve public image (which obviously you're buying into) is he getting some unspecified perk in exchange. don't really have that ambiguity with giving blood or donating time

So, you've decided that your opinion of the bloke will remain unchanged regardless of any positive actions he may perform?

what is this? remedial reading comprehension class? I never said that..again quit trying to put words in my mouth.

hey..if money is what sways your opinion of people. hey, to each their own..but thats only a step or two up from being a whore. just thought you should know. sucks to be you though..you're sucking his cock, but you didn't get any of that money.

where does it say that I think less of Gates for donating to charity. His stock neither went up or down in my eyes.

is that so hard to understand? just cuz I'm not "yea", doesn't automatically mean I'm "nay"

Basically you're saying giving money to charities isn't worthy of being considered a good thing because charities piss away their money

again, instead of attempting to put words in my mouth and dealing with I "basically" said, quit being an ass and deal with what I "did" say.

I never said charities aren't worthy of being considered a good thing..again, you're putting some gross lies into my mouth.

you again abuse the hyperbole by implying that I think all charities piss away money..(your words..not mine) I never said all do...but it is the pinnacle of niavete to think it never happens.

you can't comprehend...your problem. for the third time, I will repeat what I said. Just because you're rich and can afford to throw money at a charity does not command *my* respect. *my* respect is earned by doing things that go beyond money. I don't give a flying fuck if my idea of what respect is doesn't mesh with Gate's pocketbook..I wasn't asking your approval...and I don't think Gates cares one way or the other either. just don't appreciate people putting words in my mouth

uhm...no?

when the fuck did I say there shouldn't be charities? I just said that giving money to them doesn't equate to my respect for them

overreact much?
