You may all beat down on Tim Cain, but he's a damn fine programmer.

 

I've got no beef with him. I only recognise the name. There's nothing in the folder, so to speak.

The bugs in Temple of Elemental Evil say otherwise.

Here is a fact, all software tends to contain bugs of some nature.

 

Here is another fact, an incomplete or buggy product doesn't mean that ALL the code is bad, it just means that its unfinished.

 

The reason why I say Tim Cain is a good programmer has more to do with articles I've read written by him in regards to programming than products that he's worked on. Having read some of his code, I can express an opinion which is valid based upon observation and experience opposed to yourselves having suffered some bugs in some software.

 

It's kind of like saying "Tolkien is a crap author, the LOTR's movies sucked", and having obviously never read the books.

The guy could be the bastard child of Vishnu and it wouldn't matter. The last thing the world needs is another MMO.

There was a time when I questioned the ability for the schizoid to ever experience genuine happiness, at the very least for a prolonged segment of time. I am no closer to finding the answer, however, it has become apparent that contentment is certainly a realizable goal. I find these results to be adequate, if not pleasing. Unfortunately, connection is another subject entirely. When one has sufficiently examined the mind and their emotional constructs, connection can be easily imitated. More data must be gleaned and further collated before a sufficient judgment can be reached.

As a sort of embittered non-MMO survivalist I agree with an enthusiastc "Yee-ha!" and fire my six guns in the air.

I keep hearing about this MMO game... I should look it up on Wikipedia some day :-

Bl was a good game; but it was most certainly not flawless. No game is. *shrug*

Tim Cain rules. Glad to see he's still in the business.

well, I checked and it just doesn't say....apparently, the firm he is with is like a subcontractor of NCSoft, the makers

of Guild Wars, City of Heroes, etc.

 

I wonder if it is a pre-existing title like that or some new deal....

ToEE was an epic failure in programming, design, story telling, and quality assurance.

 

Bloodlines... Not so much, but it still had a good amount of faults.
