Re: Steve Wozniak reminisces about Marathon

I don't know much about Halo, but I know that the logos used on Oni's boxes (when it was published by Take-Two) seem to be haphazard and inconsistent. Sometimes a publisher or developer is left out, or one is included that was not connected to that version of the game. Fwiw, Destineer is listed as t...

Re: Steve Wozniak reminisces about Marathon

Yes, I think that's a big part of the reason that Jobs was angry when he heard that Bungie had been acquired by MS. He probably felt a little foolish that Halo had been stolen from the Mac after he introduced it on-stage. Apparently MS promised him they would get it ported to the Mac, in order to ap...

Re: Steve Wozniak reminisces about Marathon

Yeah, I thought it was interesting too. I always wondered why Steve Jobs didn't care much about games, and Woz actually addresses it in this interview, which is the original reason why I watched it. By the way, I bet Woz has no idea that the studio that made Marathon eventually got bought by MS, giv...

Steve Wozniak reminisces about Marathon

Hey guys, I haven't posted here in a while, but I just wanted to share something that surprised me. The interview is a couple years old, but Game Informer talked to Woz about his enthusiasm for games, and posted the whole interview here . He briefly talks about holding Marathon LAN games with his st...

Wow, looks like Treellama really upgraded the fusion overload feature! New feature request: Make overloading the fusion pistol electrically shock the actual player through the keyboard. Might as well take this all the way into the real world.

So glad to see Aleph One finally hit this milestone! You're awesome for keeping at the project this long, Tl. I feel inspired to play through the trilogy again for the first time in a while. I'm most happy to see the M1A1 opening officially banished (I like the idea of all of Bungie's game sharing t...

I thought through their responses quite thoroughly, Tl. Their responses were missing each and every point I made, and so I finally threw up my hands in disgust. I could compile a lengthy list of the misunderstandings and rebut each of them, but I'm just not willing to take the time to re-explain eve...

I don't know whether to laugh or cry at the responses I've gotten here. Let's just say that even though I don't like the elitist attitude of some CLIQUE members, I have slowly been gaining a better understanding of why the CLIQUE has such disdain for the rest of the forum. I'm also mad at myself for...

I just can't bear it no more. There are no different definitions here. That's exactly what I said, in the very text of mine that you quoted. (Btw, "moral" != "morale.)

I don't think you do get the point. In a best out of 8 game, if that happened, the score would be 4-4. There's no guaranteed win. Well, that's according to how you were defining "best of x ", not according to how it works in sports, as I explained earlier. Essentially your suggestion is the same as...

In that case, the score would have been three to one. That you think 3-1 is an even score explains your posts and confusion on this "best of x" point, i guess. Okay, you got me. I rushed through my post so I could make an appointment tonight. I think what I was trying to say was that if the teams a...

Whether games that don't affect the outcome are played or not doesn't factor into the meaning of "best of x"--which simply means greater than x/2 games won. Additionally, it doesn't affect this discussion since playing them or not doesn't affect the outcome or fairness of the tournament. Again, unp...

Best of x means, simply, you play x games, and whoever wins more, is the winner. How is this difficult to understand? It's difficult to understand because that's not how the rest of the world defines "best of x ". Normally "best of x " means that no more games are played after one team wins more th...

A difficult math problem, to be sure, but it turns out if you solve for x it works when x is any multiple of four. Perhaps you're using the term "best of x " differently than I meant it. To me, "best of 4" would mean that the match ends as soon as one side has won 3 games, and that setup allows a p...

This whole ladder tournament is a really stupid idea to start with For someone who is anti-competition such as yourself, I would expect that response, Mr. No-Ranking-System.

This all sounds very reminiscent of the time I proposed rules for a ladder tournament :) It always comes down to the same problems that need to be solved. In my rules I had suggested an "observer-host" who both hosted, to eliminate the hosting advantage (which allows us to do best-of-whatever and no...

Hmm...so, ultimately, whichever teams play the most will be at the top of the ladder? I thought ladder tourneys were pretty much the opposite of that: the tourney does not advance until each round has completed, and no one plays less or more than anyone else (aside from the occasional "bye"). As lo...

I am stuck on Goo Lagoon... I opened up the underwater hallway in the initial body of water, which leads to an elevator... which doesn't move. What am I doing wrong?

P.S.: It would be really nice if you had Winter operate off its own set of prefs like other scenarios.

I'm much more in favor of playing more of the third party scenarios in Marathon; they still never get played on the meta. We haven't yet devoted a single night to The Gray Incident, Blue Fingers, Tempus Irae, RED, Evil, or Eternal, let alone playing M1 or M2 or revisiting any of the scenarios a seco...
