Crimson dark goes back to 2006, and he's been updating it ever since until november 2011, that's when he got a job-life that isn't compatible with the comic anymore.

Mass effect 2 is a better Space RPG than Star Control 2 in my opinion Smiley. So the genre isn't dead at all!
Ofcourse, Bioware has a lot more tech and money working for them than TFB had in those days, then again let that be a lesson for TFB that creating top games in the past doesn't gain you immortality Wink.

SCDB is back up.

That's dangerous to say.
But can we visit it without risk of getting infected?
Yesterday at home it caused various virus mentions.

Well he's been kind enough to provide us with a contact e-mail, so maybe it's time to gently nag him directly in his inbox...

have you mailed him already?

All of those descriptions of Stalin also apply to Hitler, which basically leaves us with the insanity defense. I don't think that helps against labeling 'evil'.

What convinces me that Hitler was worse is that a lot of (not all, but a lot) Stalin's evils were under the stress of a very real threat of invasion from the west. If Hitler hadn't gone in and begun ramping up, I'm reasonably confident that the CCCP would have been a lot more relaxed in its industrialization, which would have partially alleviated the conditions which led to the mass murders.

Stalin was willing to go there. Hitler went there just because he felt like it.

Germany wasn't exactly a joyful land to live in either back then Wink. That's why hitler was so successful.

Accolade didn't make Star control 3, Legend did Smiley.

Cronos, looks like you forgot starcraft 1 and 2, the command & conquer series, dune2 & 2000 etc etc Wink
11  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / General UQM Discussion / Re: Project6014 demo release on: January 06, 2011, 10:39:41 pm
A question for anyone who's played the demo.

Does anyone have examples where we may have contradicted canon? We're trying to make it so it doesn't.



To do that you first need to tell us how do you define canon Smiley.
Because some of us only look at SC2, or also at SC3, or also at the things said by creators etc Cheesy

A country which treats certain minority groups as some kind of untermensch is not worthy of my respect, i'm sorry.

Out of interest (and not trying to score points or anything), how are the Roma treated in your country? Up here in Scandinavia we're currently shitstorming over the French and Italians kicking them out, al while trying to do the same (but in a nice way) ourselves.

I don't really know. Searching indicates that once they were deemed a criminal organisation by some dutch prosecutor, but they are too small of a minority to actually cause problems, I think.

Check the date. That was two years and a month ago. That resolution was recently found to have been procedurally invalid, and it is unlikely to last much longer.

Excusez-moi, I missed the year, but the resolution is still in effect, and the protest is still going.
14  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / Starbase Café / Re: UN no longer against execution of homosexuals on: December 30, 2010, 09:41:12 pm

That's nice to hear.

Also nice to hear is that the USA recently signed a proposition to scrap the Don't ask, Don't tell rule in the US Army.

But what infuriates me is that a month ago same-sex marriage was outlawed in California. WTF, USA?!

I wonder, have you guys ever played imperium galactica, or star reach? Those were the space strat games that I used to play 10 to 15 years ago..
