I've just been reading HG Wells' 'The Shape of Things to Come' - a book written not long before the 2nd world war that attempted to predict the next couple of hundred years of history. He saw the war coming but massively under-estimated the Nazis (in his version WW2 begins with the Poles invading Ge...

Sorry Lord Haw Haw - it's as Tobias said. I'd just left a 2v2 that was ruined when my ally - the imposter using your name - nuked me then got all shouty and abusive, so when you joined i assumed it was them come to taunt me further. Been away from defcon for a while so wasn't up to speed on who the ...

I generally enjoy crate luck, good and bad. I take a certain pride in smiling in the face of bad luck, often hold back deploying powerups when i think i can win without them, and employ them with glee when i need them or just feel malicious.

Small numbers of MW in convex terrain can be partisans, harassing and distracting the enemy who keep on the edge of laser range then can't kill because of the terrain gets in the way. Or they can rush-attack undefended spawns if they are ignored. Although admittedly i've never found myself on the wr...

It is a very long time since iv'e played it, but homeworld was once my favourite game. I completed single player several times, and was fairly good online. Homeworld has one of my favourite camera systems ever, and online fighter battles were awesome in ways i haven't seen matched since - the combin...

i blame its stickiedness, and that i didn't notice how old the thread was, and i'm sorry for the somewhat harsh tone - i was in an odd mood.

It's been a while since I've ridden a bike, but I have been on both kinds and unless those pads have spikes or something, they don't have near the power two feet connected to two legs. Wrong and irrelevant. On a surface with good grip, front wheel braking beats back wheel braking. As deceleration i...

Not LA. Turin. The sequel doesn't deserve the name. You need to see the original.

Read again. I never said it reduces strategy, it just replaces the style of strategy everyone is used to with something new. It's still strategy, but it's different. That's the main reason the game would become a different game - you'll be required to play it differently. I didn't say it does (but ...

Oh i do realise it would have a huge effect, and i'm not realistically expecting it to happen, so relax - no-one is about to shatter this thing that you (and i) treasure. But please join me in this indulgent thought experiment about a game that could have been. I think you are wrong about this reduc...

I think your problem is not so much explaining what Darwinia and Multiwinia are, as setting people's expectations of how good they are. If i'd seen an accurate description of Darwinia before i played it, i'd probably not have trusted you to have made it as fun and shiny as it turned out to be. I'd s...

A change of perspective

I think Multiwinia is an awesome game, but I sometimes find myself thinking that the mechanics of the game give the player a bit too much godlike detachment, and when I do remember to zoom in I can get a very intense view of the action with laser bolts flying past me and everything looking much more...

A minor irritation, but would those running servers please take away the out of date adverts for the G15 tournament that gets spammed onto the end of every match?
