Re: Zero-K wants you!

There is lots of game-design text, check CA wiki for documents. There also have been many discussions. Well how should anyone new know about those many discussions and design text if you don't give links? I also couldn't find anything Zero-K related besides this which is no game design but a "we wa...

Re: Zero-K wants you!

Well I see no real information on the actual game design which in my opinion is the most important thing. So is there an actual design which is set describing all gameplay relevant aspects in detail? All of this open and democratic stuff sounds nice but especially when looking at CA this was its gre...

No - it really seems to be THE DNF! Here's a live stream announcement where I got told some people even could play it:

Re: Duke nukem forever?!

Maybe it's just about those other Duke Nukem games?! As far as I know they stopped Duke Nukem Forever but kept two other, smaller projects alive - I think one was a port of that Manhattan Project game to the Nintendo DS or something and the other one also was a smallish game with Duke Nukem but no F...

Re: Starcraft 2

I might buy it once it's around 20-25 Ôé¼. The actual SC2 gameplay is way too micro-intensive and I hate certain things about it which I find annoying (like e.g. a Zerg player blocking a geyser by building an own on it and aborting it again to rebuild). Blizzard always made good singeplayer campaign...

Re: OnLive

Well when being tested it turned out that it isn't really "mature" yet. The video compression makes everything look rather bad (especially blurry) and another problem is the input lag you have due to the entire system which is nasty especially for fast stuff like racing games...

Well take it as suggestion for your future birthday avatar - you'd probably just see how poorly I cut the birthday hat out on a high-res pic... :wink:

Enjoy the rest of your birthday and make some people jealous with your graduation... :mrgreen:

Re: Predators

It seems to be one of the movies where you've seen pretty much everything of importance in the trailer. I sort of had this bad feeling after watching that and thus waited for critics before going to the movies. I guess I won't go watch it... It's told to try to clone the first Predator movie but fai...

Re: Chemistry Books

Which level of complexity are you looking for?

The chemistry book by Charles E. Mortimer is an excellent start and is a good beginner's book for university while not being written in a complex way but rather easy to understand - I think it even would be suitable for a use in school...

Re: World Cup Footy Thread!

Lots of people also vote against all that camera stuff as it takes some of the "drama" out of it. People still will talk about things like that for a long time. With cameras used to decide things there wouldn't be anything to remember at all. I guess that's sort of true - with cameras there'll be no...

Re: Get the guns. (X-COMplaint thread)

Actually I don't think X-Com Enforcer really was that bad. It's sort of a Serious Sam game where you just keep the fire button pressed while fighting buttloads of enemies from or inspired by the actual X-Com games. I actually enjoyed it and some boss battles were pretty good in my opinion. It of cou...

Re: Get the guns. (X-COMplaint thread)

Well I don't think X-Com Apocalypse was as explicit as you describe it here so that's no problem. It had the standard alien invasion scenario with some mad cultists and non-described alien infiltration in the the government and companies - so no big deal... "Console kiddies" probably was one of the ...

Re: where did all the pros go?

Besides the general gameplay mechanics not being "after my fancy" I especially was put off by the fact that there existed no master plan behind the entire project. I mean all the flexibility and anyone being able to contribute was sort of cool but it ruined more than was gained in my opinion. It fel...
