Just wanted to say that I am at your service and happy to answer any questions about the Gold 45 Revolver/Ideas Have Consequences/Moral Premise renaissance in gaming!!

To bring you up to speed, here is some info:

If anyone is at comic-con this year, I will be happy to give you a free Gold 45 Revolver t-shirt if you whisper the secret phrase.

So far, in this thread, you guys just aren't thinking big enough. We were graced with divine reason and imagination, so why not use it? Think like a developer/marketer for a major billion-dollar company here; and come up with some scenes exalted by the new “Gold 45 Revolver” technology!

Think big, like in the ending wherein the Fiatocracy's Vampires/Communists/Feminized MBA Fanboys swarm our lone rider in the mountain town, screaming/shrieking the words of Lenin/Marx/Feminism/Fiatism in Banshee voices, trying to claim his ideas and his soul.

Alone our lone rider stands in the thundering downpour, as the lightning reveals the grotesque swarm--the horror of their collective countenance is only trumped by the screeching words. Alone he stands, with his 45; and if he has done the right thing throughout, legend has it that the 45 will glow gold and shoot Zeus's lighting, slaying the hundreds, if not thousands of rough Vampire/Communist/Zombie beasts who slouch his way, screaming, distorting the words/slogans of the declining fiatocracy in a most demonic manner.

See? There are billions of dollars $$$$ in the novel, emotional, exalting gameplay alone. I know you can feel it deep in your bones. You *want* to hold that Gold 45 Revolver. Or you want to obliterate it and that lone rider, and destroy/take his ideas and his soul. But either way, you know you *have* to play the game. That will be $69.95 for the collector's edition, complete with a metal box. For $179.95, you will also get a life-like Gold 45 Revolver replica, based on the single-action Colt .45--the Peacemaker Smokewagon--the Judge Colt and His Jury of Six.

Who wouldn't want to play that, just to see if their Gold 45 Revolver fires Zeus's lightning in the end, or just a little puff of smoke, like a fanboy who took out his hate for the feminist movement (which debauched his father's classical, epic soul and exiled him in the divorce regime) by killing too many unarmed women and innocent hookers?

Great to be aboard!

Video games are a crowded art, and many argue there has been little innovation in the past several years (or decades), especially when it comes to depth, meaningful drama, and storytelling. Of course all the PR departments stamp "depth, character, meaningful drama, and epic storytelling!" on the boxes, just as they stamp "Dante's Inferno" on the game which places Beatrice in the diametric opposite locale that Dante did, robbing it of its classical soul and Dante's exalted intent; and nothing really ever changes as the fiatocracy declines, as "Story, drama, character" are payed homage to in corporate press releases, but never in rugged deed.

A small innovation in a field of "crowded art" can go a long, long ways. For instance, applying the patent's same technology to the traditional Vampire/Zombie game would result in the following enhanced gaming experience:

The "Gold 45 Revolver" mod of Left for Dead would be described with (seriously--the buzz alone on this would be worth millions to EA/Bethesda/Bioware/Visceral/Ubisoft/38studios):

This "Gold 45 Revolver/Ideas Have Consequences/Moral Premise" Mod is based on the L4D Amazon.com description, and it could be easily implemented with a relatively small amount of funding: “Set in a modern day survival-horror universe, the co-operative gameplay of Left 4 Dead (L4D) casts four "Survivors/freedom fighters" in an epic struggle against hordes of swarming zombies/communists and terrifying "Marx Infected" mutants. A new and highly virulent strain of the Marxist virus emerges and spreads through the human population with frightening speed via words, both spoken and written. The pandemic's victims become grotesquely disfigured, violent psychopaths, attacking the uninfected on sight by handing them pamphlets and espousing Marxist philosophies while trying to bite/harm them. As one of the "lucky" few apparently immune to the sickness, as you have been reading F.A. Hayek, Ludwig Von Mises, and Thomas Jefferson, you, unfortunately, are trapped in a city crawling with thousands of the bloodthirsty Infected. Alone, you're dead. But together with a handful of fellow survivors, who you can identify and recruit via dialogue trees incorporating Hayek/Jefferson/the Constitution wherein you also assess the NPC's responses, you might just form a fellowship and fight your way to safety. Players can play as a Survivor or as one of four types of Boss/Marxist Infected, each of whom possess a unique mutant ability, such as a 50-foot tongue lasso, tenure at an ivy league university, an MBA, or a giant belly full of explosive methane gas. The gameplay of L4D is set across four massive campaigns. The zombie population of each mission is choreographed by an AI Director that monitors the human players' actions and creates a unique and dramatic experience for them on the fly. Zombies may be transformed back into humans by quoting Hayek/Jefferson/et al. to them; but the further they have devolved--the more collectivist literature they have imbibed and the more MBA groupthink classes they have taken--the harder it is to save them. Early on in the game, some Vampire/Zombies may appear to be normal humans, and the only way to find out would be to quote Hayek to them and see if they respond with Lenin or Mises. Some of them can be reformed via dialogue, but for others, they can only be reformed by death. And in the end--only those players who have done their best to reform the Vampires/Zombies in word and deed--only those who have acted morally throughout the game, can truly wield the Gold 45 Revolver and realize its true power as it shoots Zeus's Lightning while leveling the zombie masters and their hordes. Should you fail to reach and exalt your peers with classical ideals, the world will end as a zombie communist tyranny--"for the greater good of all.""

Imagine how many millions would want to play such novel game types wherein *ideas had consequences*, and soul, character, and honor mattered! Litertaure including 1984, Animal Farm, A Brave New World, V is for Vendetta, The Matrix, Twilight, Atlas Shrugged, Dracula, and 300 could all be brought to life on a more profound level!

The "Ideas Have Consequences" Zombie/Vampire game engine is novel in that the Zombie/Vampire virus/quality is transmitted via ideas in the game--both spoken and written--as opposed to only via physical contact, such as being bitten/attacked/etc.

Imagine the possibilities with that novel game engine/concept in the hands of creative developers!! A thousand, thousand novel Zombie/Vampire games could be created, and epic literature could be brought to life, including 1984/Brave New World/The Road to Serfdom/etc, as well ad the American and Communist Revolutions! This would mean tens of millions of $$$ and an epic renaissance in the now staid vampire/zombie format. And it would be easy to do--just a couple books/words/ideas introduced into L4D, for starters, would be epic! Of course we would still include all the physical gameplay--biting/shooting/baseball bats/etc.--but we would layer it on top of classical, exalted ideas and ideals.

Art has ever been the realm where the noble soul could place their ideals which the world had no use for; and the novel game engine described by this new technology; opposed vehemently by the dominant fanboy/feminist fiatocracy—would foster a new realm of exalted gaming for true artsists—both those who created new games and played them.

The major videogames companies are leaving billions on the table!

Look for the The Gold 45 Revolver at comic-con!!

1. A method for creating video games and virtual realities wherein ideas have consequences.

13. The method in claim 1 where fighting for said ideas in word and/or deed will have consequences regarding the operation of a weapon, which will operate at its full potential for the players and characters who are the most successful in serving ideals and ideas, and rendering them in word and deed.

http://www.google.com/patents?zoom=4...AAAEBAJ&jtp=16 (Figure 15 of the patent)

http://s646.photobucket.com/albums/u...ver%2F&offer=y






[0005]Classical principles of economics can be brought to life, including Moses' "Thou shalt not steal." A character could hear a prophet stating this on street corner, and if they heed the advice, the game is eventually won. If they ignore it, the game, and the game world, are lost. A character could impart classical wisdom such as "What does it profit a man to gain the world and lose their soul?" If the player heeds the higher ideals and seeks the higher path, then they will be rewarded not with money and jacked cars, but with their soul. And a novel weapon such as the "Gold 45 Revolver" will only glow gold when the player's soul is in tact, and the soul is in tact only when the player has made moral choices throughout the game and rendered moral word with moral deed via action in the game world. So it is that we would witness a renaissance in gaming and the exaltation of gaming as a classical art, wherein in-game characters could battle for classical ideas and ideals underlying freedom and prosperity.

Novel Weapons Implied by Invention: The Gold 45 Revolver

[0459]Imagine a game where the ultimate weapon--the gold 45 revolver--would only glow gold if the player did the right things throughout the game. The ultimate weapon would be inextricably linked to the highest moral character. Amoral or immoral characters would not be able to use the weapon. The revolver would not glow gold for amoral or immoral characters--it would never obtain its exalted, magical powers. To date, the prior art includes no weapon which only functions when the player is doing the right, or moral, thing. To date, the prior art includes no weapon which only functions to its highest potential when the player is walking the straight and narrow. To date, the prior art in video games contains no gun, nor any sort of weapon, whose higher powers are activated in proportion to the moral level of the character's character. Such a weapon may also be associated with my earlier patent application: USPTO Application #: 20070087798: Title: Morality system and method for video game: system and method for creating story, deeper meaning and emotions, enhanced characters and ai, and dramatic art in video games. Imagine the weapon of ideals and morality that could bring back the gold standard and stop all the corruption, theft, and never-ending growth of government and it accompanying demolition of those better angels of our nature. Imagine a weapon that could exalt faith, the family, and Natural Rights.

[0460]Only characters who made the correct moral choices would be afforded the priviledge of using the gold 45 revolver to its fullest power. Only characters who matched their virtuous words and deeds would be afforded the powers of the gold 45 revolver. Only characters who defined a moral world, by rendering their ideals real via action, would be afforded a gold revolver at the end. Only by moral actions would the 45 revolver ever glow gold in the hands of those who partook in moral actions throughout the game. The Gold 45 Revolver shows up in Autumn Rangers, The Real McCoy, The Tragedy of Drake Raft, The Legend of The Jolly Roger, and The Legend of McCoy Mountain. [0461]So if you climb up upon my Mountain, [0462]Looking for the Gold Revolver, [0463]Know mightier than the sword is the pen, [0464]His wife was Mary and Jesus loved her. [0465]Three Confederate sentinels were called, [0466]To kill three Union lookouts on the peaks, [0467]Two went forth in the thundering rain, one stalled, [0468]That conscience that makes us strong, makes us weak. [0469]And instead of killing the enemy, [0470]He strove for life and liberty for all, [0471]He died that night to set all of us free, [0472]The gun glowed gold as one last bluff was called. [0473]Where the sun don't shine, truth's light's in your voice, [0474]The gun glows gold when you've made the right choice.--The Legend of McCoy Mountain

The Gold 45 Revolver--A Novel Video Game Weapon

[0475]Back in the Civil War, there lived an abolitionist named Johnny Ranger McCoy. On Dec. 21, 1862, it was raining on McCoy Mountain. The next day The Battle of Glorietta Pass, known as the "Gettysburg of the West," would be fought--the tipping point of the Civil War.

[0476]A Union patrol was marching South, unaware of the 300 Confederates planning an ambush on the Union's campsite come sunrise. That night, Confederate scouts reported that three Union Sentries had been posted on three nearby peaks.

[0477]Three of the toughest Confederate soldiers were sent forth in the thundering downpour to dispatch the three Union sentries--quickly and silently. Two of them completed their task. One of them didn't.

[0478]Johnny "Ranger" McCoy, his abolitionist soul awakened by Lincoln's most eloquent words, turned himself in and disclosed the Confederacy's plans. The alerted Union troops silently flanked the Confederates before sunrise, resulting in a massacre whence the 300 Confederates were killed.

[0479]The next day, Johnny McCoy was found hanging atop the mountain, with his wife and three of his four children. Some say the Confederates hung him as a traitor. Some say the Union hung him as a Confederate. And others say he hung himself, after seeing all his friends and countrymen die upon his betrayal. But I'm thinkin' he hung himself when he returned on home to find his wife and three of his four children hanging--hung by a Union patrol. Imagine a video game with the ultimate weapon--the Golden 45 Revolver. The revolver renders the player omnipotent, and it is the only weapon that can defeat The Consortium and its formidable leader--Ramone. The FPS video game centers around finding the Golden 45 Revolver, but where is the player to look?

[0480]There is only one place to find the Gold 45 Revolver--to look within. Only players who run through the game choosing the moral actions--rendering classical ideals real and serving a higher cause--ever find it. For the Gold 45 Revolver is just a normal Colt that his handled by a moral, humble hero.

[0481]The Gold 45 Revolver

[0482]Let me tell you a story or two.

[0483]US Marine Ranger McCoy returns on home to the United States after being shot down over Afghanistan, and now he's on the run. An invention of his from grad school, APRIL, was stolen and is now a massive artificial intelligence (AI) project at the Silicon Virtue Corporation in California. Silicon Virtue wants the codes to unlock APRIL's moral soul, so that they can reprogram her. The codes are encoded on a ring Ranger wears.

[0484]After being shot down, Ranger is rescued and taken to a base in Kuwait where government officials demand the ring. His old drill sergeant helps him escape, and Ranger stows away on an ocean liner and ends up in Charleston, S.C., where posing as a janitor, he starts building a second APRIL.

[0485]When Ranger was seventeen, he went riding with his girlfriend Beatrice on her birthday way back in Ohio. On by the farms they rode their two Arabians, until Beatrice broke into a gallop. Ranger followed as the Fourth of July fireworks went off, and they came to a river.

[0486]Beatrice wanted to cross, but Ranger said it was too dark and deep. Ranger handed her a birthday present--a ring with a turquoise stone, as pretty as her eyes. And they leaned into each-other in the moonlight.

[0487]Suddenly a flashlight snapped on and three men assaulted them, thinking Ranger was also a girl because of his long hair. Beatrice got away as they bound and gagged Ranger . . . and a horse's whinny and she was back--an old Colt .45 Revolver--the one her grandfather had given her--raised. And Ranger will never forget the way it caught the moonlight, glowing not silver, but gold, as she held it steady.

[0488]"Let him up!" she yelled.

[0489]The men stood up, shining a light on her.

[0490]Suddenly one of them drew a gun and fired.

[0491]Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang!

[0492]And the three men were dead.

[0493]Beatrice cuts him loose and they hop on her horse.

[0494]"You're bleeding," he says.

[0495]"It's just a scratch . . . ." she says.

[0496]. . . And now, many years later, Ranger is building a second APRIL to contact the first before they hack into her deeper soul--a soul that was inspired by a tragic night long ago. Posing as a surfer/janitor, he lies low in Charleston, S.C., now and then going to a folksinger's show at a local cafe--Autumn Wests. She looked familiar . . . .

[0497]The agents find his lab and he's on the run again, all hope gone, with nothing left to do but drive out to California. He runs into Autumn Wests whose playing a show in Nashville, and she helps him out of a bind, recognizing him from Charleston.

[0498]So he rides with her, telling her the story; and they fall for each-other--two immortal souls striving for the natural eternity that is denied in this dumbed-down, debauched culture. Ranger gets her to stop drinking, and Autumn helps Ranger get over his fiance who cheated on him. And Autumn decides their movement--their renaissance--should have a name--Autumn Rangers.

[0499]But the ring weighs on Ranger's conscience--he has to regain control of APRIL before they fully control her, or destroy her.

[0500]APRIL is being used to run massive hedge funds and bankrupt the country, and she begins sending Roboclone agents out to seek and destroy Ranger. The Roboclones find them, but they put up a fight, and in getting the ring back from a Roboclone, Autumn puts it on. Her gun starts glowing gold, and she takes out all the RoboColones. And she remembers who she is.

[0501]It turns out that APRIL created Autumn and copied her moral soul into her; for the virtuous woman's soul is morality's natural vessel. In creating Autumn, APRIL studied the Great Books and Classics--she endowed APRIL with the moral, exalted elements of Penelope and Beatrice; of Mary Magdelane and the Virgin Mary. But something went wrong as Autumn lost her soul and her self before she met Ranger; and she took to drinking in the fallen, corrupted society. And of course, APRIL created Autumn based on Beatrice's immortal spirit--Ranger's first love from that Ohio summer long ago.

[0502]Together they must infiltrate Silicon Virtue and battle APRIL who is becoming increasingly evil, as she loses her soul to the corporate bureaucrats. APRIL has grown immensely and created an army of Roboclones; and too, entertainment executives have used APRIL to create an army of model/actresses to sell to Wall Streeters--they are all based on Autumn's DNA. And Autumn realizes that with the ring they unlock their moral soul and superpowers, and march the army into battle against APRIL, her Roboclones, and Silicon Virtue's sinister management.

[0503]Now imagine a TV series lead by Autumn and Ranger who battle forces of evil and actually have a marriage that works. Performed independently of the corrupt courts, with Ranger acting like a man and respecting Autumn, and Autumn acting like a woman and respecting Ranger. They don't lie or cheat on one-another; and the opening scene of the first season would go like this, way back in Charleston. When Ranger first shows up, he downs a few White Russians at a local club, and starts dancing with the drunken Autumn. When he comes back from a bathroom break, he finds some dude grinding on Autumn. So he punches the guy out. Another guy tries to intervene, so he punches him out to. The bouncers rush him and he takes them out, throwing all takers over tables and into the dancers, until everyone is left on the floor . . . . Imagine that Autumn wields the gold 45 revolver, just as Beatrice did, long ago, when she saved Ranger.

[0504]In The Legend of McCoy Mountain, the 45 Revolver starts glowing gold at the end in Mary's hands, as she has made the right choice as she faces down the Seventh Rider, or is it Johnny Ranger McCoy, who has returned to see her serve Justice?

awesome:

Yes–to you and many fanboy MBAs, killing hookers and unarmed women may be exciting and titillating and profound, while words exalting the timeless wisdom of the Great Books and Classics are “inane” “walls of text.” Just as Sauron created armies of soulless Orcs in The Lord of The Rings, the fiatocracy is creating armies of fatherless MBA fanboys in our real world (who plundered/destroyed Merrill/AIG/BEar/Lehman as if they were playing GTA/Fallout). The fanboy MBAs lack the Zeus/Moses spirit of classic, epic justice; so that they find the glorious Constitution and its epic, classical underpinnings to be nothing more than inane, “giant walls of text.” The fiatocracy has succeeded in an epic manner–just look at our soulless games, our soulless culture, our soulless academies, and our withering families and economy, for Aristotle reminds us that “when storytelling declines, the result is decadence.” Do you really think you can chainsaw Aristotle with that Lancer there, or blow away Socrates with your mere BFG? Even if you do, his words will yet dictate tomorrow’s renaissance in games:

The fellowship hath begun!

I hope you sign up for The First Annual Gold 45 Revolver/Ideas Have Consequences/Moral Premise Modding Contest!

Welcome to the First Annual 45SURF.COM Gold 45 Revolver/Ideas Have Consequences/Moral Premise Modding Contest!

http://www.gamasutra.com/blogs/autho...McGucken/1169/
http://libertariangames.blogspot.com

Submit mods to libertarianfilms@gmail.com !

We would like to celebrate the newfound technologies and Great Books Gaming Renaissance by inviting the major gaming companies, as well as all smaller studios and indie developers, to enter their best mods incorporating the novel Gold 45 Revolver technologies. The winners will receive a license to the billion-dollar technology, as long as they adhere to the tenets of classical, epic art.

There is a vast and rising demand to wield the Gold 45 Revolver in the soulless, dumbed-down, boring, morally vapid gameworlds, and shoot Zeus's lightning as the swarms of zombie/vampire/fanboys descend, shrieking the fiatocracy's slogans and raging against the universe's moral premise. The nimble, entrepreneurial companies who serve this demand for the Gold 45 shall reap billions, while those who serve the corporate arrogance will fade away, as Fallout becomes like playing Combat on a 1981 Atari system. And I do not mean to slight Combat, as at least it was an even fight, and you couldn't just go around killing unarmed women.

As the gaming industry sheds market cap and jobs faster than Jeff Gordon & Dale Earndheart Jr. competing for pole position @ Daytona, *now* is the time to embrace and exalt these new techologies! The floogates of revenue, jobs, and opportunity will open, as gamers gravitate towards the new, exalted, epic games endowed with story, character, romance, meaning, and soul all unified by a moral premise.

http://www.google.com/finance?chdnp=...AQ:ERTS&ntsp=0

What we have here is a case of epic arrogance, wherein instead of reading the Great Books and creatively leading an exalted artistic renaissance, the fiatocracy's finest feminized MBA fanboys would rather debauch the culture and currency (as it is easier to cerate debt than wealth--it is easier to descend to hell, Virgil reminds us, than find our way back up). Instead of serving the higher ideals, tehy would rather serve teh bottom line (art's death-knell), and thus shed thousands of jobs and billions in market cap by hyping yester-year's technologies, rather than exalting the classical reanissance that is so in demand, as the rising generation is reaching out for the Gold 45 Revolver which fires Zeus's lightning in proportion to the honor in one's soul. The conservative, corporate MBA fanboys would rather send armies of fanboy clones forth to kill unarmed women and squelch art, love, and innovation, forcing yesterday's hooker-killing technologies on the rising rebels, who are yearning for the immortal soul and epic poetry in their games, art, and culture--for their natural right to know and wield Zeus's lightning and Moses' thunder.

And thus opportunity abounds! In the hands of creative individuals and modding teams, the novel "Gold 45 Revolver/Ideas Have Consequences/Moral Premise" technologies will exalt a new era of gaming wherein games are endowed with deeper character, meaning, and profundity, as well as classical aspects of art.

THE GOLD 45 REVOLVER MODDING CONTEST!

As there are so many gaming companies out there, and so much MBA hype, it will be hard to tell who "gets" the technology without first seeing a mod from the company/studio. It is hard to tell who has really read and understood the patents, as well as the Great Books and Classics they reference, and who is just playing around and saying they "get it" in pursuit of mere profit. I mean one can say they are doing a "Dante's Inferno" game, and all is well and good, but then suddenly some MBA/fanboy magic goes down in a committee meeting, and the incorruptible Beatrice--the center and circumference of exaltation in Dante's poem--finds herself in hell. Oops! And after the fanboyization of the world, there are no rugged men in the corporation to stand up for her and defend her immortal soul. Now taht would be a game in its own right! And Dante the poet-warrior becomes a buff warrior swinging death's scythe. And that is why we want to first see mods incorporating the novel Gold 45 Revolver technology, before we license it to the victors of the modding contest.

The guidelines are fairly general, so please have fun exalting the novel technologies in your mods! Some ideas for mods are illustrated just below these descriptions of the Gold 45 patents/technologies.

Yes Dascu--we welcome all into this fellowship, unlike Bethesda/Rockstar/EA who focus on hiring/serving fanboys who enjoy hiring/killing hookers and condemning Beatrice to Hell, while Dante placed her in heaven.

The Gold 45 Revolver will allow us to liberate Beatrice from hell and exalt an epic renaissance in gaming.

All brave souls will be holding the Gold 45 Revolver which fires Zeus's lightning at the end of this game.

"The Novel "Gold 45 Revolver/Ideas Have Consequences/ Moral Premise" Game Technologies Will Be Worth Billions of Dollars" to the agile, entrepreneurial companies who first adopt them. These simple innovations and technologies, which can easily be layered ontop of existing game engines, will have far-ranging raminifcations across the industry, exalting games with profundity, soul, meaning, and epic storytelling.

Imagine you are standing in Best Buy. There are two versions of Gears of War. In one, the Locust Horde can be reformed and brought over to your side by quoting excerpts from the US Constitution--by engaging in dialogue--and where, in order to win, you are going to need to win their minds/hearts and souls. In the other version, you can only shoot them in campaign after campaign. Which would you buy? Imagine you walk into EB Games, and you have to decide between two versions of GTA. In one, you can only hire and shoot hookers--there is no chance of reforming them nor talking them out of it. In the "Gold 45 Revolver" version of GTA, you can engage in dialogue with the Hooker and hand her copies of the Constitution and Bible, as well as Hayek's The Road to Serfdom, and thus enlist her in your struggle against the fiatocracy, the decline of freedom, and the growth of the corporate-state. She in turn would hand those works to her Pimp who would join you. Which version of GTA would you buy? Obviously the one wired with the novel technology found in "System and method for creating exalted video games and virtual realities wherein ideas have consequences." --http://www.faqs.org/patents/app/20090017886

Already the novel Gold 45 Revolver technology is solving epic, glaring design problems/flaws in games such as Fallout 3, and it is accomplishing this in an elegant, simple manner which will also exalt the gameplay in numerous games and genres, make gaming more fun, and increase both the audience and marketability of the games which adopt the novel technology--it will also be worth tens of millions in generating cool, positive buzz.:

--http://www.gamasutra.com/php-bin/news_index.php?story=20908
"Self-censorship was the least effective course of action open to Bethesda if they are looking to morally instruct their players. Why not take the route less traveled and try to implement some meaningful consequence, something beyond an essentially meaningless "karma" stat? (YES!! THE KARMA IS MEANINGLESS! WHY NOT INCORPORATE A GOLD 45 REVOLVER WHICH ONLY SHOOTS ZEUS'S LIGHTNING IN THE END IF YOU HAVE BEEN DOING THE RIGHT, MORAL THING THROUGHOUT?)"
read more @ http://www.gamasutra.com/php-bin/new...hp?story=20908

As you can see, the simple, elegant solution would be worth billions! And it could be applied to all RPGs and FPSs! Such a novel weapon would be worth tens of millions in gameplay enjoyment, and tens of millions more in publicity. *Everyone* is going to want to get their hands on that Gold 45 when it comes out, and *every* game is gonna want to have one.

Where in the prior art can one form a fellowship based upon the ideas/ideals/characters of the NPC’s? In what game does the eventual outcome depend on the character and integrity—the ideals and beliefs—of the fellowship one forms? Re: How much would it be worth to Bethesda/EA/38 Studios/Visceral/Bioware/Ubisoft?

How much would it be worth to put the following on a game box? "It is the dawn of the American Revolution, and it is up to you to build the fellowship that will lead the epic battle for freedom. From tavern to tavern you must walk the streets of Boston, listening in on conversations and recruiting those speaking (and oft whispering) of liberty's epic ideals. Redcoats and King George's spies abound, and when you hear the words of Washington, Jefferson, Paine, Madison, Jay, and Hamilton, you must engage the characters by speaking of liberty's ideals yourself; or lose their trust. Throughout you must select the best words to rally and inspire the troops during the fierce war for freedom--to attract the poet warriors with the greatest characters to fight alongside you. Ideas have consequences and word must be matched with deed, as freedom's fate falls upon your shoulders. "The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. --Thomas Jefferson""

I argue that such a novel approach to gaming--not only incorporating the words of the actual Founding Fathers--but rendering their consequences (or the dire consequences of their absence)--would be worth hundreds of millions, if not billions.

And wouldn't that be an awesome game??? Imagine meeting Jefferson and Hamilton, finally defined by their greater aspects--their souls, characters, and words--and actually recruiting Washington to command the forces, based upon his words!

"A slender acquaintance with the world must convince every man that actions, not words, are the true criterion of the attachment of friends." --George Washington
"Arbitrary power is most easily established on the ruins of liberty abused to licentiousness." --George Washington
"Associate with men of good quality if you esteem your own reputation; for it is better to be alone than in bad company." --George Washington


Yes--of course we could give all the revolutionary soldiers BFGs and Lancer Chainsaws to satiate the fanboys; but the big draw of the game would be its depth and profundity! And imagine that in one of the Taverns is a hooker with a heart of gold. Hire her and kill her, as is exalted in GTA, and the world is lost. Talk to her, and "lady liberty" will tell you where you can find Thomas Paine.

I am not sure how soon I can promise everyone Dodge Vipers, as it is hard to get distribution/cool critical reviews without the obligatory Fallout/GTA "moral choice" hooker-killing technologies and anti-Ayn Rand/freedom/liberty/depth/profundity/meaning/character/should-i-kill-little-girl (this is moral choice at its finest!) Bioshock fanboy technologies, but I will do my best!

Together, we can build the Great Books Gaming Renaissance!

http://brokentoys.org/2009/07/15/for...#comment-31220

"Hey there peeps,

Surf has been up this weekend! And it’s finally hot out there!! The June gloom is gone, and the July sky is out en force.

This is quite a thread! But it’s a bit on the gloomy side compared to the weather out there.

If everyone could list three positive things they find about tomorrow’s Gold 45 Revolver / Ideas Have Consequences / Moral Premise games/technologies/patents, that would be fun!

We have so much to cool fun look forward to!

Anyone going to comic-con this week?

If you see me there, I will give you a free t-shirt or two if you speak the magic phrase, “broken toyz fiatocracy fanboyz.” Please whisper them softly as I do not wish for the word to be getting out just yet regarding the impending Great Books Renaissance in gaming. We should probably keep the secrets of our future games to ourselves, so as not to show up on the fiatcoracy’s radar just yet.

Soon, I can tell we will all be getting together and forming a gaming company to build out the new exalted technologies, serving ideals greater than ourselves, and heroically and selflessly rescuing the ailing gaming industry, where too, too many are being laid off, and too much cash is being lost by investors on visionless, massive groupthink corporations reskinning GTA and God of War and calling it Dante’s Inferno. We could go surfing every day (company policy) and have an IPO in a year or so, or maybe just sell the Gold 45 Revolver technology/games to EA or Bethesda, so they could exalt Fallout 3 with deeper meaning, more engaging stories, romance, hookers worth talking to, and Homeric character. Either way, we should all be driving Dodge Vipers in a year or so. Scott seems like he would make a great CEO. I’d offer to do it myself, but I probably would be out surfing too much; and it seems Scott has a better rapport with y’all than I do. Oh well, we all have our places in this world, and I am happy just to be a part of such a great team, and serve alongside y’all in this battle for epic idealism and video games wherein ideas have consequences, whence epic romance, battle, chracter, honor, story, and plot are all finally united in simple moral premises, and games finally gain soul in being exlated as classical, epic art.

We should probably draw up a corporate hierarchy flowchart soon, and form an HR department headed by geldonyetich and sheepherder. We will all have nametags with our usernames/handles, so that will be fun, and y’all can wear masks at the new company, so as to maintain your anonymity and keep mean-spirited ad hominem attacks easy & fun. I look forward to seeing you and your masks every day in our lavish corporate offices, complete with free eminems and soda pop to keep you happy in your cubicle as you work long/insane hours to bring the soulful games to life.

I know many of you have been thinking of possible games utilizing the novel technology. Many of you have pondered the possibilities of endowing the Gold 45 Revolver/Ideas Have Consequences/Moral Premise technology with your own thoughts, values, and belief systems, to varying degrees of satisfaction. Instead of shooting the Lenin-quoting, property-redistributing woman in the flowchart on the patent’s first page, for instance, many of you have replaced her with folks quoting the founding fathers or Ron Paul or Dr. E, whcne you shoot them and/or have them put away so as to serve the fiatocracy. I am sure some of you have already drawn this up–some might have made a fallout mod of this, incorporating my words. Perhaps there will be a market for such games–in fact–I am sure of it, and we will definitely devote company resources to your mods based on this theme, as after all, we own the tehcnology and might as well employ it across the spectrum, for, as many of you pointed out, there is no such thing as ideals and the Constitution, and as long as there is a market for debased debauchery, teh free market dictates that it is our holy duty to serve it. Rockstar/Bethesda/EA have the hooker-killing/Beatrice-in-Hell market covered, and our company will cover various other demands, such as those for epic story, romance, character, honor, and exalted meaning in gameworlds.

“Historians from England will say I am a liar, but history is written by those who have hanged heroes.” –Braveheart

“Again, purists must remember that 300 seeks to bring a comic book, not Herodotus, to the screen. Yet, despite the need to adhere to the conventions of Frank Miller’s graphics and plot — every bit as formalized as the protocols of classical Athenian drama or Japanese Kabuki theater — the main story from our ancient Greek historians is still there: Leonidas, against domestic opposition, insists on sending an immediate advance party northward on a suicide mission to rouse the Greeks and allow them time to unite a defense. Once at Thermopylae, he adopts the defenses to the narrow pass between high cliffs and the sea far below. The Greeks fight both en masse in the phalanx and at times range beyond as solo warriors. They are finally betrayed by Ephialtes, forcing Leonidas to dismiss his allies — and leaving his own 300 to the fate of dying under a sea of arrows.

But most importantly, 300 preserves the spirit of the Thermopylae story. The Spartans, quoting lines known from Herodotus and themes from the lyric poets, profess unswerving loyalty to a free Greece. They will never kow-tow to the Persians, preferring to die on their feet than live on their knees.

If critics think that 300 reduces and simplifies the meaning of Thermopylae into freedom versus tyranny, they should reread carefully ancient accounts and then blame Herodotus, Plutarch, and Diodorus — who long ago boasted that Greek freedom was on trial against Persian autocracy, free men in superior fashion dying for their liberty, their enslaved enemies being whipped to enslave others.”

Sauron the Deciever is merely a Maia, and was once in the service of Morgoth. Sauron did not create the Orcs, but it's interesting that you (wrongly) say that they are soulless. The Orcs were once Elves, children of Eru, and they of course had souls, or spirits, if you like. Morgoth could not create anything from nothing like he desired, his works were all perversions of what came before. The Orcs would have souls just like the beings they were derived from.

Yes--Orwell feared the Great Books would be banned by Big Brother.

Aldous Huxley feared they would be banned by fanboy distractions which the fiatcoracy pumps out while their statist/feminist friends ban the Great Books and epic soul at the univeristy, thusly leaving a fantastic opportunity for us to fill the gaping void and serve the demand. Well, many of you are waking up and getting bored with shooting aliens in metallic bras in game, after game, after game to bolster the MBA's bottom line, and that is why you enjoy my words and find yourself longing for the Great Books Renaissance in Gaming.

Many of you want to man up and hold that Gold 45 Revolver which shoots Zeus's lightning in the third act, as the fiatocracy's feminized MBA fanboys surround you, shrieking their MBA buzzwords/slognas to market their boring, silly, little video games which everyone grew out of over five years ago, leading to the industry's current losses, as arrogant fanboy MBAs would rather lose millions in serving their egotistical soulless vision, rather than serve a renaissance, which they are granting us full ownership of by their arrogance and ignorance.

Books that need to be on every game designer's shelf:
http://www.gamasutra.com/blogs/DrEll...ners_shelf.php

Reading list for Dr. E’s Hero’s Journey into Arts Entrepreneurship & Technology Class:
http://artsentrepreneurship.com (where fanboys go to beocme men)

Opening Books (staple of every class):
The Battle for The Soul of Capitalism, John C. Bogle
The Odyssey, Homer (Homer and Bogle are read in tandem)
The Hero With a Thousand Faces, Joseph Campbell
Dante’s Inferno (we read the love story as a video game, and now Electronics Arts is making a major video game based on it!)

Philosophy:
Socrates’ Apology, Plato
Plato’s Republic (particularly Book VII & The Parable of The Cave)
Aristotle’s Poetics

The American Founding:
The Declaration of Independence
The Constitution
Benjamin Franklin’s Autobiography
(quotes from the Founding Fathers pervade all lectures—with today’s wikiquote/internet, there is no shortage of classical wisdom for every topic)

Economics:
The Theory of Moral Sentiments, Adam Smith
The Wealth of Nations, Adam Smith
The Road to Serfdom, F.A. Hayek
Classical Economics, Thomas Sowell
The Theory of Money and Credit, Ludwig von Mises

Religion:
Exodus (KJV)
The Book of Matthew (KJV)

Literature:
Hamlet, Shakespeare
Moby Dick, Herman Melville
Paradise Lost, Milton
The Iliad, Homer
Virgil’s Aneid (Jefferson wrote in his later years, “they all fall away, one by one, until one is left with Virgil and Homer, and perhaps Homer alone. Ludwig Von Mises adopted a quote from Virgil as his lifelong motto: Tu Ne Cede Malis, Sed Contra Audentior Ito: Do not yield to misfortunes, but advance more boldly to meet them.)

All these books are informing the epic text "THE GOLD 45 REVOLVER: THE 45SURF HERO'S JOURNEY IN ARTS ENTREPRENEURSHIP & TECHNOLOGY"--the mythological roadmap to reaping billions of dollars in tomorrow's videogames, while exalting a cultural renaissance.

Yes, this is what it feels free to be liberated from the fiatcoracy's corporate-MBA's hooker-killing technologies and dumbed-down, fminized academies. This is what it feels like, boy, to see your manly, epic soul; that God himself gave to you; and which the fiatocracy rages against, so as to destroy the Constitution and family, and enslave everyone to epic, unprecedented fiat debt.

Of course they will destest such novel Gold 45 Revolver / Ideas Have Conequences / Moral Premise games, but then that is why we will pwn3d the billions of $$$$, and not them--because we are working for something far greater than mere MBA fiat paper, and as Socrates stated, all wealth comes vritue, and virtue does not come from wealth.

so strange that bethesda censored/banned me form their forum last night right as soon as i introduced the notion of the invaulable gold 45 revolver/ideas have consequences technology (which they obvisouly need), and then hayt--the bethesda/fallout employee "hayt" in this thread--walked out on this thread today, just slamming the door: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WOWlG...eature=related

Here is how the new technology solves the above problems:

Self-censorship was the least effective course of action open to Bethesda if they are looking to morally instruct their players. Why not take the route less traveled and try to implement some meaningful consequence, something beyond an essentially meaningless "karma" stat? (YES!! THE KARMA IS MEANINGLESS! WHY NOT INCORPORATE A GOLD 45 REVOLVER WHICH ONLY SHOOTS ZEUS'S LIGHTNING IN THE END IF YOU HAVE BEEN DOING THE RIGHT, MORAL THING THROUGHOUT?)

Of course it is the route less traveled for a reason: it's a whole lot more work. (NO IT ISN'T! JUST GIVE THE PLAYER A WEAPON WHICH LOSES ITS POWER THE MORE EVIL THEY BEHAVE! THE PATENT SOLVES THIS PROBLEM IN A SIMPLE/EFFICIENT MANNER!) The framework of systems and rules that govern Fallout 3 serve the setting: a place of lawless anarchy. As such it's difficult to introduce a potent enough disincentive to murdering children (NO IT ISN'T! JUST GIVE THE PLAYER A WEAPON WHICH LOSES ITS POWER THE MORE EVIL THEY BEHAVE! THE PATENT SOLVES THIS PROBLEM IN A SIMPLE/EFFICIENT MANNER! IF YOU SHOT CHILDREN, THE 45 WILL NOT GLOW GOLD & SHOOT ZEUS'S LIGTNING, AND THE MBA FEMMINST FANBOY VAMPIRES WILL OVERCOME AND KILL YOU IN THE END!!). And, in more general terms it's hard to make any game talk to a player in true terms of "good" and "bad," when the medium's primary vocabulary is one of "success" and "failure." (HUH? KILLING CHILDREN IS BAD! KILL KIDS = NO GOLD 45 4 U! NO ZEUS LIGHTNING 4 U!)

In real life, if you kill a child, you will be imprisoned and, depending on where you live, killed for the crime. Not only that but, insanity aside, there will also be heavy physical, mental and emotional repercussions to your action, things that will stay with you throughout the rest of your life.

How can these kinds of severe, complex outputs be communicated in a video game? (KILL KIDS AND YOU WILL SUFFER A HORRID DEATH FROM THE SWARMING HORDES OF VAMPIRE/ZOMBIES SCREAMING MBA BUZZWORDS AND THE FIATACORAY'S CLOGANS!) Do you, as in Steel Battalion, kill the player and wipe the save game to teach a lesson? Or do you, as in Fable 2, let the player's evil shape the character's physical appearance, making them more unpleasant and ugly for it? (GIVE THE PLAYER A WEAPON WHICH LOSES ITS POWER THE MORE EVIL THEY BEHAVE ALREADY!)

Video games will always struggle to provide deeper, more nuanced consequences. (YES IDEAS HAVE CONSEQUENCES!) Try to provide multiple narrative routes through your experience, and costs will skyrocket into the implausible. Restrict the player's abilities in order to impede their progress and you have a weak compromise that offers little in the way of persuasive or realistic moral instruction. (THE CURRENT PATENT SOLVE THIS DILEMMA BY CENTERING THE NARRATIVE AROUND MORAL PREMISES AND PLOT POINTS, AS WELL AS A NOVEL WEAPON!)

These are difficult questions with few satisfying answers (UNTIL NOW DUDE! CH-CH-CHECK THE SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR CREATING EXALTED VIDEO GAMES AND VIRTUAL REALITIES WHEREIN IDEAS HAVE CONSEQUENCES PATENT). But no matter what, in removing the opportunity to kill children in their anarchic game, Bethesda has admitted video games' ineffectiveness in providing meaningful disincentives and negative repercussions for in-game atrocities. That the team chose to carve the issue out of their game rather than attempt to engage it head on, speaks volumes. (VOLUMES!!!)

ok--i fixed the caps key--some independence day beer got in there... my gf wants to know why i am working on the 4th--haha. "because i love something awful." "you love what awful?" chicks--you gotta love 'em.

so, as you can see, the patent solves a vast and great problem in a simple, elegant manner.
