Rockstar Games...


Recommended Posts

You know, this game made the Arts page in the New York Times yesterday, and all I could think is, why the hell are they wasting space with Rockstar and spending zero time on the games and studios that are actually worth their time? It's just because Rockstar has a public image for being so "scandalously ghetto" or whatever. And the big punchline was how surprisingly the PC wasn't the bully, but fighting them. *yawn* ... is that the kind of mainstream news its come to in the videogaming world?


Anyway, this game looks ok. The open endedness is of course always welcome, but even with that it looks like it will get old fast, faster than GTA for sure, where you at least could cruise around in a fast car and take tight turns if nothing else.

What do you see when you turn out the light? I can't tell you but I know that it's mine.

I found it rather fun. They had a cool idea about making missions that you can do whenever you feel like it, but also providing a simulated city to explore or just relax and drive around in. Also, each iteration of GTA3 has improved upon the previous one and added more interactivity and new modes of transportation.


What drives me nuts, is that the news seems to focus on relatively small aspects of the game. That whole thing about being able to kill prostitutes to get your money back was just a logical consequence of the simulated nature of the game: If you pay somebody in cash, then they must be carrying "your" money, and if you send somebody to the hospital or morgue they drop any money they're carrying. Killing prostitutes for your money back was an example of emergent gameplay.


I wish for once a news story would focus on the blunt satirical nature of the game.

      Bachelor Mapping Challenge!
      The girlfriend will be away to her mum's place for almost a week, which means more mapping time for me! I'm planning a speed build. Hope it will go my way
      I'm starting by downloading 2.11. Don't know if I'm going to use any fancy new stuff. Just want to crack those itching map muscles that has gone dry and dead since almost a year's worth of no-mapping

      The cool part of Canonical's Snap, is that my machine can now ray-trace an entire (simple) scene faster than it takes the web browser to start!

      Fm idea (braindump)
      "Experience the life of a mission builder"
      Esentially there are finnished elements placed somewhere in storage in the game and you have to place them in the correct places, build some walls here and there, add guard routes, give them their correct speech lines, etc. Decorate the places.. all in-game. lots of fun.. 😉
      If you do it right in the end you can play the mission.
      (would be even cooler if a thief-ai could play the mission, making it some kind of tower-defence game)
      This first started as an idea for an aquarium builder mission where-in you have to fill an empty aquarium with sand, waterplants, castles water and swimming fish. But above idea is more fun.

      Dear ChatGPT, What are The Builders in the Dark Mod?
      The Builders is a popular game mode in the video game community called "Dark Mod," which is a fan-made tribute to the classic "Thief" series of stealth games. In this game mode, players assume the role of builders who construct structures in a dark and ominous environment while trying to avoid detection by patrolling guards.
      The Builders game mode is unique in that it offers players the opportunity to create and design their own levels using the in-game tools and resources provided. Players can experiment with different building materials, construct intricate traps and puzzles, and create their own unique gameplay experiences.
      While The Builders game mode is not an official part of the Dark Mod, it has become one of the most popular and well-loved aspects of the game, thanks to its emphasis on creativity, strategy, and stealth.
      You guys did not know that, did you?
