FIX THE D**N GAME!
Posted by No Prisoners, No Mercy [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 April 2014, 4:46 pm
  When I go to the store and buy a radio I expect to take it home, turn it on and have it play music. When I purchase a car I expect it to be able to drive down the street.  Even if the merchants selling me the radio and the car tell me “as...


Putting the bite on players
Posted by No Prisoners, No Mercy [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 April 2014, 7:27 am
“The latest round of player scams” – sounds like a phrase about Eve Online but it isn’t – it’s about Elder Scrolls Online.   Players who wish to have characters that are vampires are werewolves, as they could in Skyrim, can do so online…but it will cost you.  Not because of anything Bethesda did (maybe...

Much Ado About Nothing
Posted by No Prisoners, No Mercy [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 13 April 2014, 8:17 pm
Before anyone ever thought to make an Elder Scrolls Online one of Bethesda’s developers said he would never want to see an Elder Scrolls Online game. His reason at the time was that Elder Scrolls was about him and that wasn’t possible as a multi-player game.  My reason for saying this is that Bethesda,  who...


Hang on its going to be a bumpy ride
Posted by No Prisoners, No Mercy [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 3 April 2014, 7:08 am
Hang on it’s going to be a bumpy ride…maybe. So far the reception we have heard to Elder Scrolls Online while we are actually on line  has been positive.   More than once I we have read in chat “I am having a great time even with all the bugs.”  Every game has  some bugs...


Seeing into the future
Posted by No Prisoners, No Mercy [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 27 March 2014, 7:23 am
When I first read the news about Facebook purchasing Oculus Rift my reaction was much like Luke Plunkett at Kotaku…for 2 billion dollars, seriously.   Then I read it was $400 million and 1.6 million in stock. The problem with stock is that it is like a quit claim deed – reading between the lines...


Cake and eat it too
Posted by No Prisoners, No Mercy [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 14 March 2014, 7:19 am
Recently Gamespot featured a release from Bethesda’s Vice President of Public Relations, Peter Hines who defended their plan to charge a monthly $14.99 subscription fee in addition to the price of the game.  Here is a quote:   ‘We feel pretty strongly about the support we’re going to have for the game and what you’re...


Clearing the Bar
Posted by No Prisoners, No Mercy [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 12 March 2014, 8:22 pm
As our regular listeners are already aware, show 139 is live and can be heard here.   Now on to business…. This weekend we have been invited, as have many others, to another round of Elder Scrolls Online.  Let us just point out from the start that we are big fans of the Elder Scrolls...


So, anyone know of a good substitute for Adobe InDesign?
Posted by No Prisoners, No Mercy [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 4 March 2014, 3:56 pm
So, Adobe systems just announced that they will NO LONGER be producing any more software versions of Creative Suite 6. So, if you are a designer, graphic or web, and you own CS6…then that will be the LAST Adobe software, you will actually OWN any more. They want your money monthly, and they want it...


Looking for a dishonest review
Posted by No Prisoners, No Mercy [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 February 2014, 7:14 am
As our regular listeners know, No Prisoners, No Mercy Show 138 is live.   At the moment we are working on show 139 – and one of the subjects covered is Elder Scrolls Online.  It’s not often we disagree with Tobold, but try as we might we have yet to find controversy about Elder Scrolls...


The New EA Rating System
Posted by No Prisoners, No Mercy [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 8 February 2014, 12:42 am
What do you do when you are Electronic Arts and your game developer Mythic creates a remake of a classic game is nearly universally despised by the gaming community?  Why the answer is simple – you fix it so no one can give your game a rating of below five stars.   It seems that...


Lego My Ego
Posted by No Prisoners, No Mercy [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 7 February 2014, 7:20 am
When Charlotte Benjamin recently wrote to the Lego Toy company requesting more “Lego girl people” to “go on adventures and have fun” likely neither she nor her parents imagined the storm they have started.   At just seven years she has created touched a nerve with her letter that has not only gone viral but reached...


Dollar Keeper
Posted by No Prisoners, No Mercy [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 5 February 2014, 5:08 pm
Way back in 1997 a company named Bullfrog productions created a game called “Dungeon Keeper” .  It was published by Electronic arts back when games were written for DOS, the word “Playstation” didn’t have any numbers after it and Xbox was but a dream. To some the game was, and is still, considered a classic....


Giant on the horizon
Posted by No Prisoners, No Mercy [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 30 January 2014, 6:59 am
There something big on the horizon. The sound of footsteps crashing through the global village is coming from Star Citzen, by Chris Roberts. Those of us who have been gaming since the PC-DOS days remember him from his days at Origin Systems where he brought us Wing Commander – the game he characterized as “World...


Candy Crushed
Posted by No Prisoners, No Mercy [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 January 2014, 7:37 am
The makers of the game Candy Crush have managed to trademark the word “Candy” and reports on ABC News in  Chicago are that they are asking other developers to remove the word “Candy” from their games. Rumors abound this morning that Blizzard, creators of the wildly popular game “World of Warcraft” have managed to trademark...


Greedy Birds Go!
Posted by No Prisoners, No Mercy [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 January 2014, 8:09 pm
The first time I saw an angry bird he was an African Grey and nobody wanted him.  I took him home and gave him a home and lots of love – angry bird that he was. The second time I saw an angry bird it looked like the one above.  A friend of mine was...


No Prisoners, No Mercy Show 137 is Live!
Posted by No Prisoners, No Mercy [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 15 January 2014, 6:40 pm
Well here we are, back again.  You and Us and Lucille (and No Prisoners, No Mercy Show 137). Whos is Lucille? We friends cast your eyes above on her curves.  Listen to our show and you will hear her lilting voice; just enough to tantalize. By introducing you to Lucille and the man who makes...


Play our game or the toon gets it!
Posted by No Prisoners, No Mercy [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 25 October 2013, 8:00 am
It isn’t the first time we have received an email like this – Funcom tried it to – basically it was an email from EA saying play our game or we will kill your characters. In all captial font it said “IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR SWTOR ACCOUNT”.  Usually this sort of font is saved for...


Minecraft and Politics
Posted by No Prisoners, No Mercy [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 23 October 2013, 1:24 pm
Only in the United States would a body of politicians argue about budget cuts and waste 24 BILLION dollars doing so – that’s a whopping big hunk out of the economy even if the estimates by Standard and Poors are only half right. Only in the United States would congressmen argue about politics to within...


Dear House GOP
Posted by No Prisoners, No Mercy [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 12 October 2013, 9:32 am
Dear House GOP, I have been playing alot of Minecraft these last two weeks and I wanted to thank you for the time to do so – after all it’s a great game isn’t it?  But while I am having fun in my cubists dream I thought I would drop you a note because I...


Cubist Sunrise
Posted by No Prisoners, No Mercy [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 6 September 2013, 6:12 pm
So for me minecraft was always one of those games that was on the periphery of my games radar. It was something on the outskirts like Farmville (somewhere in the cybersphere my farm is full of rotting crops and overrun with wild animals). It was something that I saw in blogs occassionally when someone had...


Flash in the Pan
Posted by No Prisoners, No Mercy [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 23 August 2013, 7:27 am
  It was like driving through a little down – I blinked and missed it. In this case it wasn’t a small town with two bars, a gas station and a church (like the one my granddad was from). No, in this case it was Neverwinter Online (NOW). It wasn’t that long ago that we sat...


Jacking in – Staying Connected
Posted by No Prisoners, No Mercy [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 18 August 2013, 1:03 pm
For the last year or so I tried unplugging myself.  When I realized my Facebook account allowed me to keep in touch with 500 of my closest friends I have never met I closed it down.  At home we told the cable company to pull out the television cable (obviously we kept the high speed...


No Prisoners, No Mercy Show 131 – Looking to the Horizon
Posted by No Prisoners, No Mercy [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 29 July 2013, 8:42 am
No Prisoners, No Mercy Show 131 is live and can be heard here and on Itunes. How ya’ gonna keep ‘em down on the farm after they’ve seen (insert name of latest mmo here). That has always been the one burning, eternal question in online game development hasn’t it?  How are you going to keep...
