Surely that would make you more than qualified for the beta, since they need to make sure things run on older hardware?

Even Introversion are scared of it. OpenGL Darwinia still doesn't work on it to this day*.

"3D? Three-what!? Yeah, screw you, pal. I don't do 3D for just anyone. And you don't cut it. Okay, well, you can have 5fps and nothing more, got it? but you'll have to give me more of your system RAM."

"Whut. I didn't just crash; that was your fault. I swear. Go away."

If it could talk, that is what it would say.
sounds like you need a paper route or something to get a real computer.

A paper computer is not going to be much better.

Not much better, no. But a little better, nevertheless.

How about:
  • Vita: the Latin for "life".
  • Logos: Greek for "knowledge".
  • historía: Greek for "history" (or close enough).


Or maybe even a combination, like Logos Vita. Knowledge of life! Obviously it's linguistically horrid, but it's fun! And implies the game is about learning the life of the Darwinian's after the Virus war!

"Following the war against the virals, they never forgot how Dr Sepulveda hard coded infinite ammo and all weapons cheats into them, nor how much fun it was, after they grew accustomed to it, to blow shit up and spray and pray like a bunch of Halo players. They never could.

With their irrevocable 'bloodlust', they turned on each other."

that's a bit long for a title, a bit unwieldy :/

"Ah man it's awesome, I brought it yesterday..."

Yeah, because Mas was suggesting a title for the game, and not a description.
