Kriyasurferchapel: ah, but it is a wonderful gimmick.
chapelthen you realize, hey, the graphics are at the limit already
zorglu_chapel: who got the other 2million ps3 ?
Kriyasurferchapel: what should be more of a concern on gaming is how Vista will tank PC gaming
chapelcant do too much with the back end for ai and physics, so emergent play is out the window
Kriyasurferchapel: ah, never mind. You run OSX
chapelzorglu_: still waiting to be sold, merchants
zorglu_ah ok
chapeli have a pc
i play pc games
Kriyasurferchapel: "emergent play" what do you mean by that?
chapelwell i did, my pc is out of commision atm
Kriyasurferchapel: Heheheh. I'm afraid to install XP on a decent box. Then I would be gaming all the time instead of working.
chapelemergent play is gameplay not explicitly designed by the developer, it is something that the player comes up with, think of a sand box game
like in gta
neuro`Hello
Kriyasurferchapel: Ok, I see what you mean.
chapelemergent play would be running around and gathering cars and stashing them in one space, then blowing them all up
neuro`Is there a way to tell rails to load a specified plugin first ?
jstewI <3 classic games.
chapeldont play wow
you should be okay otherwise
Kriyasurferchapel: I disagree about not having emergent play on windows. I've noticed a lot more casual rather than hardcore gamers flocking to the Wii. The social dynamic is very different ... more like playing Super Smash Brothers in the same room than playing Halo in the same room.
chapel: so emergent hardcore gaming? Probably not. But emergent casual gaming? I think there'll be some interesting things.
neuro`I want to load localize plugin before any other plugin so that I can localize other plugins as well
chapelwell, what i mean, is the system itself is lacking, it is basically an oced gamecube
jstewIMHO the wii does bring gaming back to the average consumer, just like the NES did back in the 80's
Kriyasurferchapel: right. But what is lacking in the game itself ... I think people will find creative social dynamics
chapelI think there are a few good years of innovation with the controller, but again its a gimmick, and well its cheap too
well for local gaming
LoPMXargh! did anyone get radiantcms' mailer behaviour to work in production env?
chapelthe wii has very poor internet based play
well none at all
atm
Kriyasurferchapel: the best thing about the game is that you're moving your body. When you have more than a single person there, you start getting some interesting dynamics not expressed in the game itself. It is a platform made for multiplayers, not single players.
docukjstew, thanks for helping me with that little sanity check :) much appreciated.
Kriyasurferchapel: it doesn't have to have internet gaming to be successful
jstewglad to help docuk
chapeli agree Kriyasurfer, but again, I could pay monopoly with people too and have the same social dynamics, they arent new
but yes, to casual gamers, it is very attractive
