Some of the FASA devs used to hang around on Mechwarrior 4 IRC channel. All of them said they loved working there (MS). I guess this took place later, during Shadowrun's development.

If there are hundreds of thousands of linux users playing Quake Live when we are done with Rage, that would certainly influence our decision...

said chances are pretty much nil.

I'm heading towards the final boss fight in the game. I can't help but notice just how many similarities to Timeshift Wolfenstein has. The powers (how they're divided into different abilities), the NPC types and the levels. Even the story in some instances.

I will say the game has picked up a bit towards the end here. I just wish the whole game had been this fun.

It's a fun game... good looking for the most part, cool enemies and weapons... calm down and roll with it.

NO!....I don't like it! You're stupid.....YOU'RE ALL STUPID!

I just don't understand why Raven was allowed to release this pile of shit to begin with. 4 years in development?? Did ANYONE from iD stop by and see how work was progressing (do they even have a connection to the IP at all?)? Barring that how about their own principals? Raven didn't get to be where they are by making such generic shiite (well, not of this caliber anyhow). This is a new low-water mark for them.

A lot of people ragged on Timeshift but at least it had more fun moments than this.....whatever it is.

News Comments > PC Battlefield 1943 Delay
32. Re: Battlefield 1943 Delay Aug 22, 2009, 11:57 Hump
 
You cannot play the console version against the PC version as far as I have heard. So how would it affect console sales?

The logic of publishers is that if people receive the PC version free (easily done as we all know) they won't spend the money on the console version (private servers for pirated versions of games are all over the place now). Then there's DLC. the 360 version will most certainly get DLC that can be charged for (particularly now that its such a huge seller) while the PC user base has shown a significant resistance to paying for what they deem to be "part of the game". It would be a PR nightmare to resolve the two camps.

They probably planned to release the PC version a couple of months after console demand died down but sales are still booming.
EA/DICE have repeatedly said they were surprised at just how popular the port has turned out to be hence my theory that the "much work still to be done on the PC version" is utter crap. Especially in light of just how far back its been pushed. DICE is too experienced to have missed the mark by that long.

Maybe I'm wrong but there's just too many publishers engaging in this practice now for me to actually beleive a small-ish game like this is having such a hard time getting its PC port out the door.

Whatever.

I played the 360 version and its not my cup of tea anyway. I'd rather reinstall BF42 or go play the BF2 versions of the same maps.

Another American economics failure comment. So you're going to tell me that they would skip the holiday XMas grab and push to next year? What a tool. If they did what you stated, they would simply release this game around Thanksgiving or mid December to get the christmas, oops, sorry, politically correct America now, "holiday" cash grab.

seeing your a fucking pro at economics you should know that sales of consoles vs PC is somewhere around 10-1. Its not out the realm of possibility that they would delay the PC release in order to maximize console sales.

To those that said I'm full of shit, you guys seem to forget that many of the current cross-platform titles now being released sees the PC version not being released for at least two months AFTER the console version. Its to prevent cannibalizing of the console sales. Some publishers admit to the practice, some like to use the insulting "we're holding back to polish it".

Sorry but I'm not buying this line a horseshit.

The game ended up breaking all kinds of sales records for Xbox Live! and sales are still strong. To put it simply they (MS) are scared to death of everyone grabbing the PC version illegally which they beleive will end up cannibalizing sales from the 360.

a Month delay....I might beleive them, but, I seriously doubt that DICE's ship estimate would miss by such a large margin.

I've got the feeling that this will be the last build of Windows that people will be willing to pay for. If MS wants to stay in the OS game they better start thinking of other revenue streams before Google and several other entities start rolling out their own free alternatives.

for some reason I just can't myself excited about this sequel even though I loved the original. Maybe because much of the original team isn't working on it?......I dunno.....

Nooop, this looks like a reissue of the Termite/P3i game New World Order that's over six years old -- the game was made in Sweden...

wow, that's going way back. People were so psyched about that game (me included) but what eventually got released was an unfinished buggy mess.
