Its not like the guy was an old man and completely PC illiterate. I'm 47 and never played MI but I sure as hell know what the fucking smiley looks like and ...well...and maybe I'm being too careful here.... but I would have stopped at the "SULFURIC ACID" for chirssakes and thought twice.

what a fucking douchebag

OSC is a hack, always has been. I read a ton of Sci-Fi and could never get through one of his books from start to finish. Abysmal shiite.

Looks like the author drank the feminist kool-aide.

This is a boring mechanic in games and dangerously dehumanizing behavior in real life.

Someone hand this man his testicles back please.

Do we know if this has split-screen co-op yet?

I'd imagine they could do it it if they have co-op implemented.

Installed it, "played" it for about 2 hours. Forget participating unless you cough up some cash. When it was first announced they claimed that one could play for free with lower end weapons etc. They've dropped that pretense. Looks like it could get expensive pretty quickly.

The art direction is really bad. Many features are still offline from what I'm told. Not all that impressed.

downloading now. Let's see how this turned out.

EDIT: DO NOT Download the file on the main site. It downloads an obsolete version. Here's the page with the updated client in either bittorrent or direct download (though the latter comes in 6 parts)

So awesome. This is the type of MMO I'd be slightly interested in. I doubt I have time, but I'm actually going to read-up on it now.

I've tried to get into the game several times but it just didn't click for me. The economic aspect just seems very dry and dull.



Then again, maybe if I hadn't burnt myself out 25+ years of pharmaceutical and alcohol abuse I'd have the capacity to enjoy it....

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...

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.
