"Serious Games" Industry Gains Traction

svvampy Re:in other news from 1983 (92 comments)

I found Full Spectrum Warrior to be more like a puzzle game. Each level was designed with specific challenges. Move to cover here, flank insurgent there and so on. As you said, a single mistake could be devastating, but unlike sokoban you can recover. Albeit by trudging back to the healing point. I did like that feature, but when I started thinking of the game in that fashion, it sort of lost its appeal.

Maybe the game was more dynamic than that, but for some reason it stopped being interesting for me and I moved on to other games.

Verizon Tells Cops "Your Money Or Your Life"

svvampy Re:Frankly I'm siding with Verizon. Good for Veriz (593 comments)

This situation highlights the gap between technology and policy. My guess is, that if things don't get completely ignored after this news item falls from focus, then whatever policy changes are implemented will be ponderous and draconian and will not prevent this scenario from recurring.
