Could be a bit more dark, I suppose. And grim. Grimly dark. Or darkly grim.

Why wouldn't you trust it? The two mod teams don't have to be at each other's throats just because they both feature a cyberpunk setting.

Abandoned and forsaken by his team, the armor of his command vehicle failing, the team's commander cried out in anguish.

dar_ @ Max Payne 2 Mod Roundup

That's what I've been wondering. While not a TC, it made the original game more fun (or at least more spectacular).

dar_ @ Age of Chivalry 1.2 Now Available on Steam!

The jump in popularity is ridiculous. Just shows you that most people don't give half a crap about mods unless they are shoved in their face. Still, AoC is an awesome mod and it's nice to see it's getting the exposure it certainly deserves.

Slipstream looked pretty neat, even though the video of it had about 2 frames per second...

It seems that the PR website is having problems. Too bad, I was hoping there would be a torrent up for the download.

dar_ @ Where do you buy new games from?

Personally, I prefer CD/DVD-based DRM to digital distribution-based DRM. Of course, I'd prefer none at all, but we don't live in a perfect world.

dar_ @ Modcast Live Thoughts

If you are going to be doing that, I also suggest making a separate RSS feed for the audio modcast and the video modcast. I'm really only interested in downloading audio (I'd rather stream video right on the site), and I'm sure I'm not the only one who'd rather not have audio and video lumped into one feed.

dar_ @ Eternal Silence 3.0 Client Released!

Because that's what fileplanet does. They go hunting for upcoming mods and secure exclusive releases usually offering something like free promotion in return. They benefit by getting a bunch of desperate rabid fans to sign up to get the mod earlier and don't really have to do anything beyond throwing the download on their front page.

Guys. It wasn't funny when Doom 3 did it. It's less funny now. It's even less funny when you attach a flare gun to it that shoots some crappy flares that last about as long as my muzzle flashes. Seriously, now.

dar_ @ When playing a FPS single-player campaign, I prefer it when the main character that I control:

I hate it when the player character doesn't speak. I find that it actually breaks immersion, cause the entire story must be written around the character not speaking. Situations where other characters somehow infer the intentions of the player character often feel very contrived and artificial. Situations where other characters speak to the player character, and the player character can't talk back often make me feel like I'm a spectator of the story, and not actively participating in the game.

Characters don't have to say a lot. In fact, a game might work very well if the player character has a very small amount of lines to say. However, if there are going to be conversations between characters in game, don't make me feel like I'm watching TV.

dar_ @ Which is the best game feature/ability?

Time rewind is one of the more interesting features, in that it overrides the usual game mechanic of savegames. Instead of the tedium of quicksaves and quickloads, you have inbuilt rewind that allows you to correct your mistakes on the fly and try again (essentially having the same effect as quicksave/quickload but still keeping you in game). What Prey did with their resurrection mechanic is also a new interesting spin on the same old topic.

No, we must continue to use the comment rating system to send the negative comments about Steam so far into the negatives it necessitates recoding the website in order to allow for such large numbers.

dar_ @ What do you think has the most potential for originality and innovation?

I think the best setting would be a crossover between the Pokemon universe and Powerpuff Girls.
