Re: Spam Bam Thank You Mam

I'm thinking that when you buy a job lot of verified emails, some traders will throw in a table of pre-generated spam as a bonus, maybe with some metrics on success rates and demographics.

Re: Obscure Old Games

Torment is pretty much a classic pointy clicky adventure using the engine and trappings of an RPG, it's a short story and almost-murder-free runs are available. It's not the Monster that Ate the Weekends unless you want it to be.

Re: CHAT DUMP (and Quotes)

I enjoy manual because having a 'more torque' lever feels good and you basically never need the brakes, but emulating the complexities of a gearbox just because people hate change is hilarious. If the power train has infinite torque just gimme a USB joystick port in the drivers side door armrest and...

I'm still surprised by the overwhelming volume of the positive response. Did someone find an astroturf machine idling with the keys in the dash?

Re: Fallout

I recall Shamus Young's E3 reaction being that "Nothing Todd Howard says here makes me think they understand the problem they’re trying to solve." If there are nukes, and no mods or private servers I figure the best case scenario as a first person Fallout themed game of Diplomacy.

Re: Fallout

Not following Fallout with any deep interest, but isn't this one of their off-season experimental outings, the gimmick being Fallout Rust, and they expect the players to build a vibrant RP civilisation with stories, quests, trade posts and some kind of rule of law? If that's broadly correct I certai...

Re: Fun Facts

I love that the guy was just throwing cool words and concepts together with no thought of any bigger picture and it still somehow coalesced into the Homer's Odyssey of 1980s boys. I wonder if he ever got to read World, Shut Your Mouth.

Re: Greatest loss of gaming innocence?

I remember having the opposite experience back in vanilla WoW, glitching into terrain outside the designated play area and finding that the landscape really did continue, and was occasionally populated with half-created npc settlements and events, even the outline sketches of entire new zones.
