    BREAKING NEWS: RIP, Digital Anvil 1996-2005 (December 2, 2005)

    A hail to the good Ol' times of gaming past. I also had assumed that they were already vanished, therefore this sad fact didn't shock me as it should be for being an old gaming enthusiast, though. Speaking of megacorporations, history has proven that there had been existed also independent...

    Thread for topic that screwed up Digital Anvil thread

    Garriott Explains Tabula Rasa Changes (November 27, 2005)

    That would make the game at least intriguing. First I thought it would be just a world setting, one world "high fantasy", the other one a "dirty industrial sci-fi setting". But now the latest figures in the game are looking just ridiculous. Richard Garriot what hast thou done!? Edit: Ow, it...

    Origin Museum Cel's Out (November 1, 2005)

    Yes interesting. Hm, by the way, they rather look like the interior of Terran ships from WC 3 era (TCS Victory).

    Pick Your Favorite Sibling (October 1, 2005)

    That's a tough one, even the games which weren't commercial successful or had badly delivered gameplay were good and special ones. My vote goes to the Ultima series, the original product franchise of Origin. Cybermage was kind of funny but unbalanced/inconsistent. Damn, the rest were also much...

    Hiroshima and Nagasaki 60th Anniversary

    I won't take position to a discussion based on Hiroshima, but here are my redundant, but really impartial (I'm neither fan of the two mentioned forces, nor any which participated on the WWII) 2cents: I think every use of an atomic bomb is naive. It's not only an explosion, it's radio-activity...

    Where Have all the Adventure Games gone?

    Sorry, Death :o Yes, Revenge of the Patriarch seems to be a short and flawed game. But it's somewhat hilarious to see a Kzintosh in action.

    Where Have all the Adventure Games gone?

    Not to play a Kilrathi or Kzinti, but ever wanted a Kzinti in an adventure? [warez site link nuked; see item #12 of the forum rules - Death]

    Large New World Discovered Beyond Neptune

    As it seems, sadly impossible. It's the Kuiper Belt, circling around the sun. It's for a gravitic anomaly (even for an anomaly) impossible to go with the flow of the beld. It would be another gravitational centre. Like a quasar (radio galaxy) which on the other hand can't take place in our...

    WingCommanderMovie: How would you have made it?

    Looks like a Star Destroyer, which had have love with a Mon Calamari Cruiser in resulting with an offspring like that Kilrathi Cruiser from Super WC and Armada. To the topic: I think, the main problem isn't that, in which conceptual direction the movie would/should be made of. My...

    Man kills attacking leopard by ripping out its tongue

    Rather a perfect point to argue. Because when did beavers endanger the enviroment as the human being does. Indeed, the beaver does drain the rivers, but never did a beaver damaged it so drastically and irreparable. Its work is a harmonic consequence to the enviroment and there aren't such a big...

    Man kills attacking leopard by ripping out its tongue

    Good points, even that from Heinlein. To determine humans as the "noblest" entity on earth is a subjective matter on someone own. And I appreciate your take about protein utilization of our organs, cff. I end my part of discussion here, because it's too critical. I could come with various...

    Man kills attacking leopard by ripping out its tongue

    I don't gave the human a prefered position in my sentences, nor I count humans to an ecological intergral part like those animals are.

    Man kills attacking leopard by ripping out its tongue

    Excuse my freaky-fairy-ideals. Yes, you show that in detail what I had meant with the anthropocentric principle of the farmer's survival. Sometimes, situation (most time) and mentallity (luxury) of people around the globe can't provide such ideals. That's just me. Experience it...

    Man kills attacking leopard by ripping out its tongue

    I totally agree. But if I remove the anthropocentric principle of ones' survival, the death of the leopard is a shame. If I would be the farmer, I would reconsider my balance between economy and ecology. Was it necessary to have a farm in the wild lands? I'm alive, but shouldn't I make a...

    Man kills attacking leopard by ripping out its tongue

    Hail the big cats! That's a relative splendid sight! Relative, because of their unnatural origin (= among other possiblities like the use of gene labors, forced crossbreed, geographically unusual encounters of different races). Which leads often to sterility. Sadly they aren't therefore a...

    Man kills attacking leopard by ripping out its tongue

    If I were placed into such situation like that of the farmer, I would indeed commit self-defense. It's just the (human) instinct - the own survival, without questioning what I have lost on leopard territory. I think it was necessary to survive, but it's nothing glorious with it, in my opinion. I...

    Prophecy Music

    Sorry, beside of that what you could mean (really you can't believe it, by swearing to your God? :p ), my proclamation is truly insignificant to you, it was only a self-explaining idiom. Because of my perplexity (I have no air conditioning system in my sleeping room, therefore I haven't slept...

    Prophecy Music

    I agree that also techno/house are also not my cup of Vak'qu. As Metal reaches at least some musical quality and is mostly based on (electric) guitars, could it be considered. Try some Primordial to know that Metal could go well as soundtrack, or even some "progressive" rock, like the...

    GameFan Gives SWC A Glowing Review (June 15, 2005)

    Malar regrets of having no 3DO in his childhood... Wow, I never had the pleasure to enter into the Supreme of Wing Commander. As a sceptical jerk I ever been, I normally dislike all deviations/variations of WC (best example Movie and TV-Series, (but I can also see that there exist some good...
