Much to my surprise, as it isn't a sunday, the RWG and SubTerra forums are gone. Finito. La Fin. May they live forever in our hearts. Goodbye, forever, I'll see you in SubTerra. If you didn't get that joke, find out what SubTerra means.

Well, are anyone else's implants feeling weird today?

Finally.

The spamming in RWG was to be expected, but SubTerra deserved a better death than the one it got.

Oh well. Time to celebrate a victory against SPiced hAM!

RWG deserved a better death, too. It needed a few witty pieces of spam, not a deluge of pointless spam.

Dikiyoba would also like to point out that "Goodbye forever, I'll see you" is an oxymoron.

Hmm. You're right. Should have put more thought into it, but I was in a rush to be the one to tell everyone else. I'll edit it out. Thank you for alerting me.

C'mon, when was the last time RWG actually held a real discussion about RWG? When Icshi was still around, perhaps (which was well before my time)? At least SubTerra had people like Stew Boy and Mystic.

I tried to give RWG a fitting end, and it pretty much worked, for a while. But then the place clung foolishly to life for several days after our tasteful ceremonies, and things went downhill.

Farewell, RWG. We're all a little bit lost without you. I feel particularly diminished by the loss of the forum that I ran more or less as a private fief.

—Alorael, who on the other hand thinks it's nearly as appropriate for Exile to be on the bottom as it was for SubTerra to be down there. But the forum list seems so short!

Hmmm. *looks* Oh yes, how exquisite. I don't think it's a bad thing it's gone, actually. The cult of RW will always sort of exist, with or without forum.

I find it odd that you can still make polls there even though you can't make a topic/reply.

Not true. You can't start polls either.

—Alorael, who is quite certain of that.

I agree that the Subterra forum did not deserve such an demeaning death. I remember playing Subterra many years ago, and I thought it was the best real-time puzzle game I had ever played. I enjoyed it much more than even such classics as QBob. The storyline, while sparse, was a refreshing comedic relief that successfully included a few swear words here and there.

Since I have a Windows computer, I have never had the pleasure of even trying a Richard White game. In all honesty, without all the sarcasm and trite inside jokes, were his games good? Galactic Core was some type of space strategy game, right?

Ocean Bound is just boring. It's like Settlers without graphics, real strategy, or fun. Galactic Core has potential, almost, but in the end the AI is too stupid to make the game any fun and the rules aren't interesting enough to really make GC stand out in any way. It's spectacularly mediocre.

Lost Souls is the best of the bunch. It's a strategy game that isn't quite like any other I can think of, and it's based on capturing territory and using resources to build three different units. The AI is still pretty weak, but the concept was good. If there were a level editor and a way to play againt other humans I would have registered.

—Alorael, who thinks maybe someone should shamelessly plagiarize. The rules of the game are simple enough that even he could program it. AI is always tricky, but it would work fine as a free humans-only game.

At one point, we observed that the consistent problem in Richard White's games is designing so as to require heavy artificial intelligence but supplying only mediocre artificial intelligence. As a contrast, Jeff's AIs are not great, but his games are not designed to require great AIs, and the AI that he makes is functional within the context of his games. RW never quite managed that (except, come to think of it, in Rock Solid, which I still think may be his best game).

But that's okay, if your games include advanced Artificial Stupidity. This is where the implants come in.

*sigh* Missed the deletion of SubTerra & Richard White forums. Though it doesn't sound like much changed from when I left...
To get back on the other conversation thread, I played Rock Solid and Ocean Bound. I don't believe I figured out the keys for Rock Solid, and Ocean Bound was one of those games that I found too frustrating to continue on.
