Lucky *commence jealousy*


I wonder if I'll actually get it on the 30th... stupid hurricane sandy...

Also, I'm in the Planetside 2 beta. It's pretty cool.

Things I like:
-The graphics are really great considering the scale of the areas you're playing in... really!
-The huge, open world gameplay with more players than your mind can comprehend
-Vanu Sovereignty FTW...

Things I didn't like:
-The aircraft controls are too clunky and hard to handle. Maybe I'm expecting too much from an arcade-style game, but I stand by my point. Then again, at least there are aircraft...
-Getting killed by other players, but that's my fault when it happens
-Hurricane Sandy: it has nothing to do with Planetside 2, but I still don't like it
-While I understand the reasoning of the "perpetual conflict" on the colony (if it ends, then there's no game), and appreciate the fact that games like this exist, I think it sort of takes some of the motivation away. In a single player FPS that's story driven, anticipation for missions and battles adds a lot to the experience.
-Did I mention hurricane sandy yet? You know- that hurricane? The awful one?
-The clouds look terrible (but it's not a distraction)

Most of the things he listed had absolutely nothing at all to do with it being a beta...

This is true...

Anyways, I've signed up for the beta, I really want to try it out.

I survived "post tropical storm" Sandy- I still have power! And, Amazon says they are preparing my item for shipping. Finally...
As for my criticisms of P2- don't take them too seriously.

Also, I'm curious:

What do you guys think of the Wii U? IMO, I think Nintendo began to realize that MS and Sony were serious about a long life-cycle for current consoles. They are out of the Wii's league, and the Wii U is what I see as Nintendo's attempt to catch up with their competitors (at least until PS4/Xbox720, when the cycle will just repeat) And what's with the controller? The fact that they have an alternate Wii U Pro Controller, which by some kind of cosmic coincidence looks strikingly similar to the 360's, speaks to the fact that the new controller is cool, unusual, silly, gimmicky, and overkill, all rolled up together and put into a blender (if you'll pardon the metaphor).

Ever since the DS, Nintendo seems obligated to make some kind of new innovation/gimmick in their consoles. First, it was dual screens... then motion controls... then a shameless jump into "3D" fad, and now this. What's next? Smell-o-vision?

Has anyone mentioned the game Aurora yet? It's a vast 4x (explore, expand, exploit, exterminate) game, often called "Dwarf Fortress In Space" and it's free. I have not yet tried it, but I linked some of my Dwarf Fortress-fan-friends to it. They curse me now, for having gotten totally addicted.

We have discussed it on Russian forum. "Aurora" is one of the names purposed (by me) for the game based on SE.

I just found out about a totally cute little game that helps to visualize the effects of relativity. It's called "A Slower Speed of Light". The gameplay is fairly simple: you collect orbs to lower the speed of light to the speed of your character. As the speed of light gets slower, however, relativistic effects become more noticeable. You start being able to see in infrared and ultraviolet, the intensity of light changes, and your perspective begins to warp due to Lorentz transformation. Time dilation is also simulated.

Download it here: http://gamelab.mit.edu/games/a-slower-speed-of-light/

It seems like if this totally cute game was real, the constant collisions of the countless particles in your body with the countless particles in the environment at near light speed would probably annihilate a large portion of the planet (if not all of it) in a gigantic nuclear fusion explosion. How fun!

Seriously though, I'm going to check it out.

I found this cool life simulator called "Game of Life".

You can download it from here: http://sourceforge.net/projects/smoothlife/

It's like Conway's Game of Life 2.0! Cool!

EDIT: That bit in the video at 2:13 when the little things were dancing was SO CUTE! ♥

Dreams Gate is a game based on the "Star Gate" universe, developed by a Russian guy Roman Vereshagin. The game generates procedural planets with erosion effects (!), cool water and clouds. It already has a network system - you can walk on a planet and shoot other players (however the server is offline). Look at the screenshots:





Download:

Last demo client
http://server.dg8.ru/dl/demo-1.20.mod.1_patch.rar

Since the server is offline, press the "Play offline" button when game loaded, or open console by pressing [~] and type "run". This version has no spaceships. To fly over surface, open console and type "fly". To switch back to walking mode, type "fly". After first launch, the screen resolution and fullscreen mode can be adjusted in the config.xml file in the game's main folder.
