#446711 Is there really a such thing as a Mac game?

Posted G_Player on 03 October 2017 - 11:21 PM

Is the OP the real Steve "Monkey Boy" Ballmer?!? In my mind I can still visualize the QuickTime movie of good ol' Steve coming out on stage, backed by some good ol' rock-n-roll, fist pumping into the air and screaming, "Give it up for me!" You made ONE trip around the stage, screaming and yelling, and upon reaching the podium, needed 5 minutes of heavy breathing and sweating before you could speak.

Aaaah, but if you had been successful at "knifing the baby" (killing off QuickTime), I never would have had such a good laugh. Waitaminute… didn't you guys lose a lawsuit from Apple after you shamelessly ripped-off code (copy/pasted) from QuickTime to create your Windows Media Player?

And your software engineers secretly call Apple, "R&D South".

The truth hurts.

Anywho, yes games created for Mac would be nice. But if I want to see what Windows will be doing five years from now, I'll buy a Mac today.

#446407 Loot Chests now in Middle Earth

Posted G_Player on 25 August 2017 - 11:03 PM

Recently, I wanted to check out Breitbart News. I bookmarked the site and visit on occasion. I was surprised to see an article about gaming and Middle Earth especially.

" ‘Shadow of War’ Is The Latest Example of an Industry Seeking to Profit from Young Gamblers"


"When Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment first announced the presence of loot chests in the upcoming Shadow of War, I was flabbergasted. It was a reaction shared by the vast majority of the gaming community at large."

--------------------


It's a short article and a thoughtful read. Here's the link if you'd like to see it for yourself:

#445010 MMORPGs feel like Pinball machines

Posted G_Player on 24 March 2017 - 11:47 PM

It doesn't matter which game I play, nor how beautiful the graphics. They ALL feel like I'm playing a machine. Everything that appens in the world is scripted events, scripted story lines, scripted NPCs, nothing feels alive. Most players (metaphorically) drop endless quarters into the machine and abuse it to get the most out of it. No one takes the world or the dangers seriously. Barely a few try to play in the world as a living, breathing, denizen. And you can literally quit any world, no matter how far up you've climbed, and you will have had zero efect on it.

I really really miss the days of pen & paper DnD, and wish somehow that an MMORPG comes along that combines the beauty of graphical advancements with living breathing game masters who can set up challenges and takes an active role and interest in characters' lives.

Granted, this cannot be done in a game with thousands in it. But surely, there are those who stand above the rest in becoming a part of the world through great role-playing. But as long as developers continue to automate everything in a world, nothing will ever feel real.

And all you & I are, are just cogs in a machine.

What say you?
