Good article. I never even realized this.

I assume it's Trails in the Sky.
(never played any of those)

Do you really need to AIM though? You have VATS.

That is true, and I kinda tried to rely on that, but Vats is slow and has a recharge time, so it got really annoying.

That's were PC/mods help. There were plenty of infinite VATS mods for people who didn't want to play this as an FPS.

Personally, I loved the action cam mods for VATS. Every shot was like a high budget action movie. One of them even did different POV replays when the shot was 'awesome' enough =)

I'm not making this up. There's a mini-game in SR3 where you drive a convertible with a tiger next to you and you have to drive fast to help the tiger build up courage. If you smash stuff, he claws you. The whole thing is also voiced by your character going "oh shit it's a tiger next to me aaaaaaah this is the worst idea evaaaaaaar."

How much drug do you need for your devs to create a mini-game like THAT?

Heck, I wish I was them. At least one thing in life would give me blissful pleasure.
Not that I don't enjoy anything... but clearly not as much as they do.

Playing Saints Row the Third (working on THQ humble bundle still) and it's loads of fun. I just loooooooove driving around the city in my sports car. The handling and drifting really rocks.

True enough. The worst part of Star Trek was creating the setting.
Here he already has one, so it shouldn't be that bad. Same things for Star Trek 2.

Yes, and Zenimax is mostly Mythic. That quote is from Zenimax's website.

I find the best explanation (and most Kirk-like) is found within a novel where Kirk reprogrammed the Klingons to fear his name and fame. As such, when he enters the area to save the transports he makes an ultimatum telling them that if they attack, they will earn his ire.
When questioned after by Starfleet, he says simply that he hopes to make a name for himself that would recreate the scenario as he modified it.

(about the latest Star Trek)
I just found the plot to be nonsensical.
Then again, you can't expect much when the root of a story is time-travel.

That and the everyone becomes a cadet -> red shirt in 15 min weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee...

Also, the Kobayashi Maru test Kirk took... simply hacking the shields off? That is so lame...
Every other iteration of Kirk's Kobayashi test was about his wits or charisma... except this one which was just lame.

(and I'm not even a trekkie)

Yup, 3 on 3 great episodes.

How far can this serie go =)

Our President was one of the founders of Mythic Entertainment and was the producer of Dark Age of Camelot and lots of other titles there. Our team is made of many other people who worked at Mythic, as well as NCsoft, Firaxis, Sony Online, EA, and Bethesda Softworks. ZeniMax Online's staff had leadership roles on popular MMOGs like Dark Age of Camelot, Warhammer Online, Star Wars: Galaxies, Ultima Online, and The Sims Online.

I almost thought I was wrong for a second there.

Anyway, interesting debate, game looks decent - lets see how it turns out, and how quickly it goes F2P.

Didn't both Zenimax MMO go F2P after a year? If so... a year.

Today is probably the coldest day of this year in Quebec.
Some of my coworkers had fun outside and I offer you this little science experiment.
