    Re: Not even one decent MMORPG? Pathetic.

    The comments I saw looked like people had given it a decent try, doesn't make them idiots if they didn't like it. I heard that same strain of logic from WoW fanboys when I'd bash WoW, talking about...

    Re: Not even one decent MMORPG? Pathetic.

    I've been trying Muds, as a sort of methadone for the graphical mmorpgs that I miss.

    Man, I've been really trying to get into them, but thus far, I gotta say, I'm disappointed.

    I was expecting...

    Ooh, I take it you are personally involved with one of the crappier projects I mentioned. I meant no offense.

    Oh, I don't know if it's safe to say worst place to start ;) I mean, I could shoot myself for defending WoW, believe me I think it has major issues, but I just think if someone is going to try mmo's...

    Re: Not even one decent MMORPG? Pathetic.

    Well, Planeshift looks like it has the most potential. But that thing has been going on since 99 I think, and what I gather from Linux Game Tome, the forums, etc., it's been at the same level of...

    You're right that it would higher than average funds. I wonder how a subscription model could be implemented? Assuming it was a quality game, of course... Don't MythTV users currently have to pay a...

    Had to look that game up. Is that what caused the whole roleplaying=occult scare in the eighties?

    Yeah, I can't even imagine how combat would be, when it is text in real time - that must get nuts.

    Oh cool, there is a KDE client. I had checked the repos but didn't dig very deep.

    Do you think I'm OK to use the Debian/Ubuntu 7.04 .deb? (Considering I'm on Gutsy) Or do you think I'll need to...

    When I talk about dethroning WoW, I was more making reference to my surprise that it hasn't happened in the commercial world yet.

    Well, I haven't ruled it out - I might give it another try. Does the text-based stuff get to be second nature after a while?

    Re: Not even one decent MMORPG? Pathetic.

    No doubt this is a ton of work - but take Planeshift, for example, they seem to have all the hard work (3d game engine) done. If they were to just wrap up some loose ends, and add some content (with...

    Re: Not even one decent MMORPG? Pathetic.

    Yeah the interface was just terrible. One of those games where you have to force yourself to play it at first. So much of the challenge seems to be just learning the horrible controls.

    Not even one decent MMORPG? Pathetic.

    I can't believe that there isn't even one halfway decent MMORPG floating around the FOSS world. I mean, even when I was on Windows I was surprised no one was attempting to take the throne from World...
  24. Re: What FOSS is out there already that is better than it's proprietary counterparts?

    True, it is a lot more fun - and there is also much more potential to impact development, even as just an end user without any skills. If there is something you want in a program, ask and you very...
