1  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / General UQM Discussion / Re: Project6014 demo release on: October 18, 2010, 08:30:01 am
Curses… I appear to be very late with my comments, as all of my complaints have already been addressed!

In any case, I enjoyed the demo.

I am curious if you will incorporate internet play in the final product, as it may be entertaining to wield some of those new ships.

If Zarla does join your staff, I would take solace in your promise that the results do not become… well… too risqué. Zarla is notorious for a certain… provocative… writing style…

I would offer my assistance, but at the very most I can only produce subpar music and/or voice acting.

In the purviews of philosophy, psychology, and politics, anecdotal evidence is marginally meaningful. I do not mean this as an attack. Instead, I intend for this to be an embellishment on the fact that personal experiences often lead to hasty generalizations that spawn waves of misconception. Even self discovered truths such as the mighty axiom, “I think, therefore I am” can be brought to their knees with the simple question, “What if human logic is flawed?”

My point is that one can not speak definitively on matters such as this. For example, the statement, “Humans are inherently greedy, and naturally work in their own interest” is rather dubious. Are humans selfish? Or do the social machinations of today turn us into these less than altruistic abominations? If so, are we too far gone? How do we know in the first place? I can tell you that I most certainly can not say, but perhaps we can come across something similar to an answer if we try to find it. That is, ideals are obviously not viable, but is it incorrect to strive for them? In spite of the reality we are presented, can we almost achieve the impossible?

The only truly straight lines are imagined, so must we scribble?
Or shall we search for the silver lining of every storm cloud, only to be struck by lightning?

I just don’t understand the Torch ban at all. The Thraddash Torch is the best thing ever! It is easy to see that a ship is good when your opponent would rather slam into the planet than face it! You know, I just absolutely ADORE anticlimactic hour long battles which involve firing hopelessly at an impossible to hit vessel while having crew members killed one at a time.

The Thraddash Torch, friend of video game masochists everywhere!
