So they say, bu so said Tornquist when everyone pressed him about that awful Dreamfall ending. And now he says he's "not interested anymore".

It's beautiful and awful at the same time how the gaming industry can create products that hold people hearts in their hands and yet is so precarious.

In movies, even the shittiest series has good chances to be completed. With games, it's like hopping on a minefield.

I still got lumps in my throat.

I have to give it to them. It was awful and a mean cliffhanger but so very effective and used everything they've been building on since 2004.

The difference between him and Valve is that Valve aren't just developers of one largely overlooked series or even just developers - they make some of the best selling games on PC AND own the biggest digital distribution platform of the format. It's like they have the infinite money cheat on. Which means it's coming but also that they can (will) take their damn time to perfect it. Hey, they're quicker than Blizzard.

I haven't yet, but I've been hearing very good things about it. If it weren't for Final Fantasy XIII and God of War III coming out in the next couple weeks, I'd already have it.

i actually just downloaded both final fantasy 1 & 2 for my iphone, the control scheme is a little strange considering the placement of the headphone jack but besides that I'm def digging it. i really hope developers start porting more of their older titles to the iphone

Valve are up to something.

They patched Portal today and the patch notes read:

Quote:
Changed radio transmission frequency to comply with federal and state spectrum management regulations
The steam forums immediately jumped on it and found 17 minutes of morse code, a new achievement called 'Transmission Received' and this:



Turns out the code comes from moving in game radios to certain points (that achievement comes from putting the radio on to the big red button on the first stage, which then spits out morse code) and the loud thing from above is when you throw a radio into a forcefield.

IT'S A MYSTERY!

EDIT: here's what we have so far

Quote:
Interior transmission active
External data line active
Message digest active

System data dump active
User back up active
Password back up active

The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog

BEEP BEEEP BEEP BEEP

LOL
Some of the morse code can be converted into images:

Does this have anything to do with a Portal sequel?

Current theories are Portal 2, Episode 3 (which might tie in with Portal), DLC or a portal gun for the valve store.

Well, I almost feel like it can't be Episode 3. I'm not even into Half-Life 2 and I know that's never gonna happen.
