Re: Internet in the 90s

No, Firefox was released in 2002 and had originally been developed from Netscape, after Microsoft ran Netscape out of business ("We'll cut off their air supply." - Microsoft exec). Netscape Communications made their source code open-source in 1998, essentially giving it over to Mozilla, wh...

Re: Star Armada II

Hey Ice4master! First off, great job developing and supporting your map for all these years! It was one of the first maps I ever tried and liked in SC2's Arcade. I sunk a number of hours into it just trying out the different ships and seeing how far the upgrade system went. Good stuff. Watching your...

Re: Comparison of Age of Empires 1-3 and Starcraft 2 competitive gameplay

For his last topic on slower game speed, I'd say it theoretically lowers the skill ceiling. All players have the same additional time to think, sure, but if you hit a point where your APM cannot be applied to anything useful, that's the ceiling. Slow it down enough and the game will almost become tu...

Re: Fried video card

The tech world passes me by until the next time I build a computer, then it's binge-research time, so right now I can't speak with any authority about the latest generation of video cards. However, I would recommend double-checking your favorite games to make sure they don't have any known issues wi...

Re: Overwatch?

What button do I push to tag in my other fighter? =oP @Mucky: No, you're still oversimplifying fighting game mechanics. I did indicate that was my intention: "... were meant to be limited to ... some high concepts about system balance..." "I was brief because I didn't want to get too ...

Re: Overwatch?

@Milldawg: If you're comparing fighting games to team strategy games, No, not really. The comparisons I introduced were meant to be limited to character selection and some high concepts about system balance, rather than inter-genre balance. @Mucky: Judging by your post, it's clear you don't play fig...

Re: Overwatch?

Ehhhh, this sounds kind of like how they handle fighting games, but fighting games are famously hard to balance. Even when the package of abilities is self contained, there's no predicting how they play out once "out in the wild" compared to other characters. If anything I'd think just ha...

Re: Overwatch?

Last time I looked at the WoW shop, it made me ill. If someone has the discretionary income to blow $25 a piece on vanity items, more power to them, but holy crap the entire shop is catered to that level of excess. I will put money into a Free-to-Play game like League of Legends in lieu of a retail ...

Re: E3 2016

I remember when they put an end to E3 because it was a financial blackhole for game companies and publishers.
