who is waiting for Noctis noVa or NV

I wanna try the sim out *sighs* if only they will release a beta version and its taking so long 2003>>>2007?

Woot! Another Noctis fan!

Keep in mind, though, that there is no "they". It's just Alex, working all by himself, making the game in a programming language that he's not even done making yet.

And pherhaps it'll go down, since the development of the game has started some years ago.
I'd like to see it done, but were not 100% sure of the release.(Not even 50% of it, I guess)

Honestly, I forgot this game existed. How can it take anyone, even if its just one man, a couple years to work on a game, and not post anything about the progress he's made on his forum? Its made even more depressing by the fact that Noctis has this invisible corner bug, so my mouse acts up and I can't look in one direction.
#
E_net4 9 years ago
I don't seem to have that problem, but anyway, if Noctis V gets to existance, it'll be a good game.

I'm not really a fan, but I would like to see the next version be released.

I got bored of Noctis IV. There wasn't enough variety in the planets to keep me interested, and the graphics sucked IMHO.
#
E_net4 9 years ago
Yes, and there was always a big hole in planets with life.

Whats w00t and IHMO?
#
Crazy 9 years ago
Oh, yay! Internet slang!

w00t= WOOT! It's a way of saying "yay!". Usually a positive yell.

IMHO = In My Honest Opinion.

Also, "WOOT" comes from the phrase "We Own Opposing Team".

And "IMHO" can also mean "In My Humble Opinion", although that just sounds silly.

My IRL "friends" are annoyingly stubborn with this. They are saying that it actually means "Whaat?", oddly pronounced. Whatever I tell them, they just won't give up.

That's a backronym. It was invented AFTER the phrase was used.
#
Crazy 9 years ago
Wait... isn't the opposite of an acronym a cronym? Logically?
#
Zombie 9 years ago
Well an acronym is a word where each letter stands for an individual word in a phrase... So a cronym would be... Uhh... a phrase where the first letters of each word form a word... Like in some military branches they'll turn the call letters of aircraft into words. Like "Tango Whiskey Charlie Four Nine Five" would be "TWF-495" or somesuch.

A backronym is an acronym where where the word makes the phrase, as apposed to the phrase making the word. Like LOL. LOL is an acronym for "Laughing Out Loud." If I say LOL means "Lie On Leaves" then that is a backronym because the phrase was not initially used to make the word. :3

You just said one and the same thing.

But in the english language there also exists the phrase "Grammar beats logic", so...

Agh. Thanks for noticing, Crazy. I typoed big time on the start of that second paragraph... It's supposed to say, "A backronym is an acronym where the phrase was made to match the word, as opposed to the word being defined by the phrase."

If you pay attention, that is somewhat different from what a... err... "cronym" would be. In a backronym the phrase is made using the letters of the word to match the usage of the word. "Cronyms" can make sense as well but are not specifically related to the word or its usage.

Like if a fighter jet had the call sign TBS-599 they could say "Tasty Bacon Sandwiches 599" as their "cronym." It makes sense, but does not relate at all to the word.

On the other hand, in the example of WOOT meaning "We Own Opposing Team," the phrase makes sense. It was made to further define the word like acronyms are made to give a long concept a single word, hence WOOT is a backronym in this case.

Sorry about that little snafu. I didn't fubar it too much, I hope.
#
Crazy 9 years ago
But what if TBS-599 had just been swiss-cheesed?

Really, though. There's no difference between a cronym and a backronym. WOOT and We Own Opposing Team aren't necessarily connected. If a person yells "WOOT!" when his popcorn finishes, i'm pretty sure all he owned was the microwave. Unless he stole it.

Perhaps the popcorn, too.

No, i'm PRETTY SURE he stole THAT...

We already DID.

Also, I for one do not belong in the group of people who are waiting for Noctis V.
#

Well, the current version of Noctis I am finding very difficult. I have only been able to move around and... well thats it.

Ah, but would you at least like to see it come out?

Hmm... No. I at least won't play it even if it comes, but I know that if it DOES come, some people will start playing it instead of doing something more important.

Perhaps to see what all the fuss has been about, I might look into it. Otherwise, nah.

Another game (in the same vein) I've been watching for a good while is Infinity. It's much more active, and pretty-looking, than Noctis Nova. You could call it an extremely open-ended Freelancer MMO, with /enormous/ ships ala Freespace, which has the prettiest graphics I've yet seen in gamingdom. I cannot stress enough how great it looks, and yet it's not just a pretty face: Watch the video showing the seamless space-to-planet-surface transition, for instance, and you might see what greatness it will hopefully achieve.
#
Bien45 9 years ago
Dang! Infinity is an MMOG and my other Comp the one im using now cant handle it! Poor me!!!!!!
#

I'm a noctis fan, too.
Although my emotional part tells me NV will be out someday, my rational part says the project is already dead.
#
ahrenjb 9 years ago
Infinity looks absolutely amazing.
