Sony Patents Game Demos With Feature Erosion

Magneon Good Idea? (200 comments)

Hmm, like in Jedi Knight 2 and many other games, where you start with all your powers and lose them early in the game then have to earn them back... It might work. That or it would just be annoying than your run of the mill 30 minute gameplay demo.

Worst Working Conditions You Had To Write Code In?

Magneon Sunny California (1127 comments)

Last year I was working on my teams MATE ROV competition entry, and the electronics box onboard the submersible robot flooded during our first of two trials. I spent the next two days sitting on a concrete pool deck in beautiful, sunny, June California at UCSD trying to rewrite the embedded system's code, squinting at the screen to route around FUBAR'd components such as the onboard computer system that was supposed to handle networking with the dry side control computer.

We did win the guts and glory award though :)

It was so bright that even 10 feet underwater the cameras went blank white until we covered them with five layers of windshield tinting film :D

EU Says MS Must Offer Other Browsers; Now What?

Magneon Re:interesting times (911 comments)

I find Safari to be snappier on my mac, probably due to webkit and the rest of the UI being native components.

I have my mac and my pc sitting side by side and I find the Windows version of firefox to be noticably nicer to use (faster, better UI integration) than the mac version.

Recently though, I've become a fan of chrome on windows. I'm curious to see if the Mac version is any good.

Warhammer Online Sees Massive Content Removal To Make Launch

Magneon Re:This is why Blizzard is so seuccesful (397 comments)

Actually WoW had 6 capitol cities (3 per faction) and added 3 more (one per faction and a neutral one). Presuming capitol is defined as the leading city in a race/society as opposed to a faction. If you're going by auction houses, there are 12 or so if you count all of the goblin cities.
