    I'm preordering next paycheck and regretting nothing.

    Because DICE Stockholm has a great track record of releasing bug-free products like Battlefield 4? Because there's no way EA would force a dev to launch Battlefront in November for Christmas/The Force Awakens even if the game isn't ready?

    Granted, I'm pretty anti-pre-order to start with, but after being burned by Battlefield 4 (and from what I've heard about Sim City) I'm going to wait on Battlefront. I would be interested in hearing counter-arguments about why pre-ordering would be advantageous.

    I will be starting the new game as close to 9am as possible after the reset. I will post here just before I go over to start the new game. Join on me and start up the scripts if needed. If I understand correctly, you can join the game in progress up to the highest levels you have reached in the past.

    The docs for the script you linked say that they won't announce official rooms until 2 hours after reset (11AM PDT) - should people join the Icrontic room or the official ones?

    I would love a movie about another assassin in the hotel, or potentially many movies.

  • Re: Project Ascension: An Open Source Game launcher

    If you're concerned about Valve's monopoly you need to support DRM-free and independent sellers as well as work on an open friend/presence system (XMPP-based Gamespy anyone?)

    A launcher is competing with the Start menu, not Steam.

    The whipping boy of languages hasn't been made to look good? Real shocker.

    “There are only two kinds of languages: the ones people complain about and the ones nobody uses.” ― Bjarne Stroustrup (inventor of C++)

    PHP has its warts but if someone can't tell me about their experiences with Composer I don't want to hear complaints from 10+ years ago. The rapid release cycle of the past 5 years has been fantastic for the language and the community has matured. It's optional typing system makes it awesome for getting started fast and then maturing into a Serious Business Platform.

    But I'm primarily doing JavaScript right now so what do I know about good languages...
