  1. What they want to do, is have these new fangled batteries which use water to charge them, you simply push water through very tiny, microscopic tubes, and the electrons transfer or something or other... (development of them hasn't been finished, yet, tho...), anyway, point is, yeah!
  2. Doesn't feel like hacking to me, at least its nothing like my hacking experiences (tho I'm not knowledgable enough to actually be a hacker), it all feels a bit cheesey, what I'd like to know, is how the hell the password cracker in it works... it seems to miracolously be able to find letter by letter, what kind of computer system would give feedback to a hacking program on how close it is to cracking the password, exactly? Hohum... Tho, saying that, it is brill fun, its been available for a tenner at play.com for quite a while now, don't know if it still is...

    Would you really? - https://secure.eve-online.com/cklregister.asp As for your 400mb comment, are you implying that's a lot? I think these days a 400mb download is nothing, that's just a couple of hours. Most games I download clock-in at around 3gb. I was bluffing B) Thats not a nice thing to do , you really should play it tho, your girlfriend will prolly be well pleased plus it'll prolly be even more fun if you play it with someone you're close to... all in all, try it...
  4. I'm not too sure about this, it sounds too 'token'? And also, we all know what girl gamers are like (like most gamers, really), the people who do have misconceptions aren't likely to be watching your program anyway... I just sense that this one could be cringing. Have you planned out how this is going to work, what will you say, will you interview girls? It can all go horribly wrong if you have no experience at creating something which has a point, reviews are easier, but, this sounds similiar to a mini-documentary (albeit not so serious, you get my point, you'll have to have anrrator or plenty of people putting their views in to prove your point from start to finish, ack...) Its a similiar case for the forum section, are you going to look like a proper film crew? Because its likely that members of the public will think you're losers and you won't get one to volunteer themselves, and then when they find out what the program is about... how about just having people you know act as the forum members? Not trying to be critical here, because all the other ideas seem fab , its just the above two which I think might be hard to pull-off if you haven't done something like that before or for a while. I don't think he meant he was going to get his mate Joe to play Podger and his other mate Dave to play Phelan and act out what they said on the forum. When he said the parts of the posters would be played by members of the public, he was just making a joke man. We are the members of the public. It's us he was talking about. They'll probably just have a review of the hottest topics that week, and draw our attention to interesting points and arguments, and Biglime will most likely just say "The issue of videogames as art created much debate on the forum this week. Emjay2kay had this to say..... which I think we can all agree with." And I imagine they'll pick up on topics they themselves found interesting, even if it dropped off the front page with 5 replies. To actually act it out would be ridiculous. My excuse is I'm very very tired... , apologies... And sorry BigLime, I didn't realise you worked in TV (prolly didn't read the original post in the first topic...), I figured you must have some background, but weren't sure what. I'm sure it'll work, this is what games programs should be like .
  5. Oh, and just curious, which digital channel was interested? You can't have signed a non-disclosure agreement, surely?

  7. How about they do a limted-edition nicely-shaped one? I want spheres, damnit .
  8. Oh, contrare, I were under the impression, that an american billion was 100 million, and an english billion was 1000 million... no? Everytime there's been some confusion because it was like that...
  9. Except: Campbell is one of the finest writers who has ever worked in videogames journalism, not to mention one of the most knowledgeable. Even if you feel he is an egocentric bully (which I don't) you must agree with me on that. Actually, I don't think he's really a bully, I mean, as much as he'd like to think he is, he doesn't actually seem to suceed in suppressing people by shouting at them... My problem with him is his writing, its fucking atrocious, if thats the best that videogame journalism has to offer, I'm even more worried... Seriously, the guy can't write, he's worse than Edge (with all it's careless mistakes). What we need is people who know how to write, now, I don't know where we'd find these people, but, even if they're say, book reviewers, I don't care, w eneed some good journalism... BTW, I've thought up another idea for if I were rich, a games company who's games are political and/or educational. One game I have in mind, would be, Harvest Moon, set in a south american company, whilst supporting a starving family, and constantly being offered less and less for your crops, it would be shit hard, no-one would be able to finish the game without losing some relatives, and I'd also add the option of having to grow cannabis and other drugs instead... such a thing would be more risky tho... the game would also be educational in the respect that it would teach people about wildlife, and how to control pests and so on and so forth, not completely realistic, it would be fun, just like harvest moon, then.

    Rifters? You don't know what they are either, then? A referee? I'm getting worried... Do you have conversations such as this? 'SeanR: Its 4 in the morning, your dinners gotten cold, where have you been? SeanR's girlfriend: Well, you wouldn't believe what happened, me and the guys from work are now building battleships and so now we're going to have Rifters and ... so you see, we're also going to have a referee ... and all this will happen at 50KM at the weekend... SeanR: What really happened? SeanR's girlfriend: I won't go into the details, but there is a small child in the boot of the car...' (at this point I'm just wondering why I just wrote that...) Anyway, yes, going off-topic. It seems like a healthy pastime, socialising with people from work, just curious, why don't you play it too? It prolly only gets on your neves cos you don't understand a bit of it and so it sounds dull... Personally I don't see the point in Final Fantasy, isn't it just another level-em-up? There aren't trade routes and an equivalent of corporations and all that, are there?
  11. And until Campbell decided to write for it... I think therein lies the major flaw, Campbell...

    I were under the impression that it can be quite tactical tho, especially in big fleets... only in so far as weapon range, ECM, ECCM, (warp jamming, oooh ) and weapons... Mmm, cruise missile or torpedoes? plus gunnery skills, and shield repairs. But it's a case of getting to a specific distance from the target, choosing the correct weapon, and clicking... then just let it play out... Boring. I wanna play like Xwing mixed and Elite, not AOE and Homeworld... The GFs big into Eve Well, generally the fun can be had with the corporations and building one up or helping build one up and so on and so forth... its basically gang wars... I really should have gotten Eve, some lovely people on the forums... oh, how I miss 'Ariell'... Which worries me, maybe your girlfriend just uses it to socialise? Nothing wrong with that, but a pricey chat room it is... Tho, I don't think thats the case, it looks loads of fun. Just be glad that she's a gamer! edit: oh, and you can't really expect dogfights, can you? With the connection the majority of people have, and the costs of running a server with as many people as eve has, all dogfighting, all at once! Yipes...

    Eve is what you make of it my friend. Yes, I find mining boring too, but you don't have to mine at all if you don't want to. Download some of the PvP (Player vs. Player) videos and tell me those look boring. PvP in Eve makes my heart pound like no other game I have EVER player in the last 22 years. Link: http://www.eve-online.com/download/videos/community.asp combat in eve is purely point n' click. There's no skill... just stats... I were under the impression that it can be quite tactical tho, especially in big fleets...
  14. Well, I'd open a game store/arcade combination, like that one discussed a while back, with ALOT of booths for people to try games out on, and some jukebox system, as well as a cushioned seating area with even more consoles, these would prolly be xboxes tho hooked up to live... that would be large too, and a bar, and small clusters of arcade cabinets about the place... I would also produce a magazine, obviously I wouldn't write for it, but, I'd make sure people who can actually write are employed, I'd try and fund a magazine up to the standards of the best film and book review articles and magazines... Also, I'd gag Stuart Campbell...

    aha! Eve: Online has one server, dunno how many are on it, alot tho... much more than the 15,000 per server... Really? Garuda seems crowded enough as it is. Lord knows what 500,000 players on one server would be like... Well, space is slightly larger than 'garuda' You should visit their site www.eve-online.com , you will certainly get the picture that there's more to it than just getting better ships, there actually seems to be some sort of story, which the players are involved in, and the whole idea of corporations vying for power and traders fighting over the best trade routes...awesome!
