Re: Making TOP 10 Video Game Composer movie list!

Eric Brosius.
System Shock 2.
'nuff said.

"Command 3" or "Ops 1" always starts playing in my head whenever I walk into a dark, confined area. His music fit the game like a glove, and the game just isn't scary with the music off. It just wouldn't have been System Shock 2 without Eric.

Re: XCOM

Chryssalids I HATE Chryssalids. Possibly the most annoying enemy besides the guys with mind control. Epic note, early in the game on veteran: 13 civilians zombified + 8 of my 14 soldiers zombified + the 4-5 original Chryssalids and ~5 snake men. At night. Retreated back into the ship after laying p...

Re: XCOM

Good advice Saktoth, I'll have to keep the smoke grenades in mind. Anyone going to mod their DS for the XCOM home brew port? Mine's already got an R4. someone actually reaching legendary skills is more epic if they can die at any moment.... Someone lasted more than 1 mission with the most expensive ...

Re: XCOM

Already played it, but didnt liked much.
Any particular reason?
Most people that watch me play it in my spare time at work just go "Ewww... DOS."

I really, really want the original on DS. That would be... my hands would fuse with the DS.
EDIT:
WOO!

XCOM

I've found my old copy of the gold edition. Freaking awesomeness. Flying power suits, blow holes in all the roofs, and drop explosives in each. Screw collateral. Forgetting the missile launcher and just throwing the missiles for fun. Chucking your empty gun at the aliens. Giving the armor-less newbi...

If you see the movie, you will burn out the color receptors in your eyes.

Another sign of the Apocalypse

Blizzard, one of the stingiest companies when it comes to protecting its sales, just released patch V1.15.2 for the original StarCraft. ...which includes a NoCD...? And the warez ensue. Promoting SC2? Feature Changes - StarCraft and StarCraft: BroodWar no longer require the CD while playing the game...

Re: Atari Inc. Buyout Completed - Relevant to OTA IP?

The engine is hopelessly outdated, I'm sure. Yet it runs with more units, on bigger maps, smoother than Spring. Wish there was a simpler version of the Spring engine for older computers. Rotatable cameras and deformable terrain really has rarely made much of a major gameplay difference. OTA just ne...

Re: Atari Inc. Buyout Completed - Relevant to OTA IP?

So... who does have the rights to release the source?
...If there even is a copy of the source floating around?
That's all I really care about. Since I own a copy I can legally play the TA mods.

About proxy servers

I have very limited knowledge of networks (I just build/repair the towers), and a buddy of mine was just recently trying to explain some things to me. He didn't do a very good job describing proxy servers. It sounded like you can not be traced back to your original IP if you use a proxy server, and ...

Re: starcraft progaming - korean commentary subtitled!

War Zone was that game where you chose your chassis and then you chose what gun was gonna go on it, right? Warzone was the one with the 'lego' tanks. Movement type, chassis, weapon/other.

Re: Whats your religion?

If the universe is infinite I said existence, not universe. I only said universe when referencing to our own. Eventually a universe had to exist, which may or may not include a god, but the fact that a well working universe does exist (ours) is not proof a god was involved in its creation because i...

Re: Whats your religion?

That everything is too perfect therefore it must have been designed. But my thought on this has always been: Exis...
