How long can 1up tech support ignore my post about their lack of security?

http://boards.1up.com/zd/board/message?board.id=comments&message.id=20664#M20664

It's been two days and Thummp the admin on the support boards has even made his own topic since then and not responded.  I would have thought having every account vulnerable would be enough of an issue to warrant a response.

Deadly Creatures looks intriguing. The graphics are nice, and it has a pretty original concept too.  I initially thought this game was going to be a one-on-one fighting game with insects and reptiles, but it's actually an action-adventure game. Sounds good to me. Happy

The Legend of Zelda has ruined boss battles.  Every boss now is the same generic 3-peat puzzle.  The Deadly Creatures concept is terrific, but I am sick to death of these poor boss fights.

I agree. It's disappointing that Nintendo and other devs still rely so heavily on this tired gameplay tactic. I prefer not knowing how close I am to beating a boss because it helps build tension which is what a boss fight is supposed to do. Bosses should be fairly unpredictable and hard to beat.

May I suggest hacking into his account to drive the point home?

What an idiot I am. I couldn't see my comments because I didn't notice the page numbers at the bottom of the page so I was continually looking at page 1. That needs to be made more clear with a page tab/label next to the numbers. And possibly having a set of page tabs at the top and bottom of the webpage to easily skip. Or having a system where it takes you straight to the page you last viewed when you click on gg weekly.

TESTING STUFF

Behind the Scenes with Spider-Man: Web of Shadows

END TEST

Is there no way to get rid of this image description confirmation whenever you post a pic? It pissed me off enough on gamespot when they introduced it.

IMPROVEMENTS TO THE SITE?

Another reccomendation is that I like the titles for each post like we had at 1up, that made it easier to browse the comments and easily see what people were saying. Nobody else like that?

Ottherwise I think this is a cool idea: have an icon at the end of each news story and when you click that icon it automatically takes you to the comment box and inserts the link and title description at the top of your post so you can reference that news story and comment on it in one fell swoop. Happy

Where is the smiley tab? Happy

DURING NEXT WEEK

Shall we discuss about opening things up on news posting? I have a few ideas, it's just a matter of balancing things out to make sure things aren't repeated and everything is tidy etc.

Womb raider Edgecrusher shots.

Rune factory pics:

The Clone Wars Wii: trailer

Did anyone else see this? Looks okay. You can't go wrong with star wars music and lighsaber battles in a trailer though. Force unleased pisses all over this though.

Deadly Creatures preview, screens, videos

I'm with ravenprose. I still think this game will bomb because of its outward lack of character. But watching the videos and screens, it actually looks like it could be a very different intriguing game. I hope there are more adventure elements rather than this one on one battling. Wonder how they are doing this so called story when the bugs do no talk or have character? If you check out the videos there is one subtitled: lots of geometry. Looks really great visually.

Hopefully the rumours are true that you get to kill a person in it.


That would be the very definition of epic.

Oh man can you imagine crawling all over the skin of a massive human boss and biting him/her? Avoiding its hand slaps? Like Shadow of the colossus but so much more epic in size considering the size ratio of human and spider. It would be like that mechanical bowser in super mario galaxy, that was epic.

Hell, they should scratch the whole insect v. arachnid, v other things like that, and make it all an epic campaign of revenge, involving all things smaller than an inch, united against mankind.

Yarcoffin... I don't remember seeing you on GG weekly at 1up. How did you find your way here?

I'm a "real-life" friend of Yodariquo. I was an active member of Gamespot, but after the Jeff Gerstmann incident I never moved over to 1up, although I had an account there long before then, it has never been active.

And it's pronounced "Yar-Coh-Fin"

I too enjoy the ability to write the word Fuck and have it show up. Having a community with no T&C in place yet should be an interesting experiment.

Oh yeah I remember you, I just wondered cause I never saw you on 1up. So tell us all Yo's secrets. We demand details.
