Well, didn't he have the best excuse ever?(apart from something like dying and being resurrected by the wonders of modern science).

Podcasts / Re: Guys Steve should interview.

I'd love a co-hosted interview with someone like Christopher Grant from Joystiq, but as an interview? Peter Moore is always fantastic to listen to. Cliffy B is probably my pick, just go all out and make it an explicit episode, that would be awesome.

Good episode, but I think I'm glad GDC is over...

Unless I'm familiar with the host (such as Joystiq writers), I can't really trust their integrity as to their information and opinions like I can Steve's, but for interview guests, they're always awesome.

I think keeping Co-hosts to special events is a good idea.

As a younger (teenage) avid gamer, I often feel like I missed out on a huge, some would say, golden age of gaming. Rogue and some of the other games that came out when I simply was not as aware and connected to the internet (where I get my information from)  as I am now, or indeed, games that came out before I could walk or were even born, I just simply can't have played thus don't know how groundbreaking or important these games were. Retro Reviews may not interest some listeners but for me they're just like learning about how the first cars came about or learning about how the modern world came to be what it is, and while some people think about history like "It's already happened, why bother learning about it?" I really do like the Retro Reviews, especially when you do a game that impacted on me a great deal (Sander is the name I gave to a rogue in Baldurs Gate 2, and have kept it ever since, so that held a lot of memories.

PC Games / Re: Are there any DnD(dungens and dragons) fans out there?
« on: March 07, 2006, 02:28:52 am »
Actually, I'm very impressed with this guys knowledge/research. Displacer Beasts, Beholders, Mind flayers, all totally 'real' from D&D. I cracked up when he said he failed his phyonics save, because anyone who's fought a Mind flayer knows what that means (for the uninitiated, your brain gets devoured)

I've been playing D&D since the age of 10 (my dad is the Dungeon Master, so I always got to go with him =) and still play it now, 6 years later.

Some of my most fond memories revolve around it. For instance, one of the players who everyone always gives a lot of **** to (we're aussies and it's all in good fun) was trapped in a hole. One of the players decided to drop his trousers and piss on him, and laughing, my dad said 'roll to hit' was a 20, then another 20, and the critical piss attack killed the character. I've never laughed so hard in my entire life.

PC Games / Re: Inflation in MMOs.

I think the economy of the MMOs need to be revised. What they should do is have a set amount of gold in the economy. Basically, when you buy something from a NPC, the gold gets distrubeted back amongst monsters, for players to kill and farm and get gold, to move around the economy, and so on.

The man who Mario calls to fix his hot water!

TV / Re: Farscape
« on: March 04, 2006, 03:55:09 am »
I'm a big Sci-Fi Fan, and I have every season of Farscape, but stopped watching after Season 3...the big reason is that the writers were too afraid to move the plot forward significantly. In Stargate, the world has changed a great deal, they've got ships now, they're a significant power in the galaxy and have new technologies.

Farscape, Every Single Freakin' Time they get something cool (the baby ship) it gets taken back off them, immediately. It's just annoying and with no give and all take, I wanted to see some actual forward momentum in the story so I stopped watching.

Firefly of course.

Crusader sucked for the first few episodes, but started to get absolutely fantastic during the last few episodes.

It's got J.M.S involved in it, so it's bound to be awesome (Babylon 5 is the greatest Sci-Fi TV series ever).

He mentions that in the DVD commentary (hell, Gaming Steve has probably ripped it and listened to it by now =p). Personally, I have absolutely no problem with it and I think it does work in the context of the how and River's back story.

Titanic, easy.

Starship Troopers is one of my favourite Sci-Fi movies, it's kind of like Wrestling for me. Turn off your brain and enjoy, not everything needs to be a cerebral activity of the higher mind here, people.
