Re: What features would you like in a Sci-Fi RPG?

As an evolutionary biologist, my number one concern with some Sci-Fi, especially Star Trek, is that there are so many human-like humanoids. Now, don't get me wrong. Due to convergent evolution, it is not only possible but also even likely that aliens could look like us. And further, they would proba...

How difficult is it to make a game?

Hi all, I finally could afford an android device, and I have been downloading space explorer / space empire building games and reached the conclusion that they all suck major donkey balls compared to Escape Velocity (really old Mac game but still awesome, check it out if you have a system 9 or less ...

Re: Abandonia

Yes, PC gaming has always been a bit of an anomaly in some ways - it just goes to show that market forces are more powerful, and more complex, than just who has the best equipment. It's all just the same VHS vs. Betamax issue, repeated ad nausium. I think the biggest force which made the PC a succe...

Re: Basilisk Update 2016

Halo + Deus ex + Descent This game will be awesome! Just plz make the RPG leveling stuff more like Red Steel 2 and less like the Witcher. Encountering enemies that are unkillable or becoming unkillable based on excel sheet values is dumb :( (If its a shooter and not turn-based, it shouldn't primaril...

Re: Happy New Year Everyone!

Happy new year! Here are my suggestions for new year vows; 4. "Be all that you can be", "Carpe diem", "Always say "Yes"", or some equally catchy phrase like that; try as different variety of stuff as you can, even things you believe will be boring. 5. Lay on the beach or meditate or whatever on regu...

Re: Fallout 4

Ah, yes, the Bethesda take on the Fallout franchise. For those who have played the originals, it's like giving Vin Diesel a glowstick and naming that movie Star Wars. As shooter/hiking simulators the new Fallout games are actually pretty fun (only New Vegas came close to the originals' spirit) As R...

Re: The Next Game

My opinon is that if you cant make 3D right, 2D, or rather "fake" 3D, or half and half is much better. Take BGII which is kind of half and half and compare with NWN. The former is like a million times prettier. In fact, I think all the great games of yesterday (but not yesteryear) where half and hal...

Re: Prismatic Maelstrom Banned

Cant pretend I know shit about programming. That said, how about for the next project from the very start design the developers tools to be user-friendly? See what Bungie did with Marathon and Myth (before they sold their soul to MS) - something like that? I mean, you said the work isnt worth for Es...

Re: Shadowrun did most everything right

Yeah but Matrix wasn't even close to the awesomeness that it was in SR for the Sega Genesis. OK maybe in Hong Kong it was better than the previous two but still. I agree, the Matrix could maybe have been nice if it was a stand-alone game, but for now it is way to similar to meat space fighting. As ...

Shadowrun did most everything right

Hi all, Like many others, I spend a lot of time thinking of game rules despite the fact that I am unlikely to ever make anything myself, and I have to say Shadowrun got most things right. Cooldowns (made even better than Paper Sorcerer), small party and not solo but occasionally you must go solo, sp...

Re: Prismatic Maelstrom Banned

A word, once spoken, becomes a mans law. Even if spoken in a weak moment, out of ignorance or as a jest. Even if circumstance change, or the size of the task was underestimated, or something more important demands your full attention (or you simply lose interest). Everyone knows this! There is not a...

Re: Making games = hard work.

If you have an old Macintosh, try hypercard. Crazy easy to program and you can actually make a decent dungeon crawler with minimal effort - I made a couple myself. It is a bit wonky though, like stats jumping around or resetting at zero for no apparent reason what-so-ever, so its difficult to get so...

Re: Perfect roll in about 50 clicks

Why doesnt someone just hack the fucking thing, instead of letting thousands of greedy players roll and reroll for hours? Im sure enough nerd-hours have been put into rolling good stats so that if their collaborate efforts instead had been directed toward the greater good we would already have colon...
