Lot of Microsoft-published games being cancelled these days...guess I won't hold my breath waiting for Freelancer 2.

I know THQ as publisher of ZANZARAH, the sweetest little fairy tale game that nobody played.

Yeah, the problem is that they tried to do just that with Neverwinter Nights. Damn fine game, and possibly the best PC D&D game in existence, but it's just so friggin hard to develop modules for it.

If Neverwinter Nights had the immersion factor of a first-person perspective (or does it with the new expansions?), it might approach what I'm looking for. Although it shouldn't be necessary to rely on the mod community to get a good campaign together in the first place.

Sounds like this IS "Towns of Rubi-Ka", just with aliens brought front and center.

Drop the first 'M' from MMORPG, and give us a game we can run for a few friends on a server at home. Just imagine if Morrowind had multiplayer...THAT is what developers should be working on.

If they want it published, they should change the soldiers to elves and orcs. If they want to get gamers interested, they should make the characters over into aliens.

If I wanted to watch TV commercials, I'd watch TV...which I haven't for nearly 10 years. Time to set a new homepage, I gather.

how Sandy Peterson always gets mentioned as an afterthought...he's the guy who developed the CALL OF CTHULHU pen-and-paper game, for crying out loud!

Given the nature of the vast majority of the online gaming community, I would think the title is more likely a nod to LORD OF THE FLIES.

I played the demo for one day, and then it refused to run because it suddenly decided it didn't like my graphics drivers (which hadn't changed anywhere over that span).

For a 2D RTS game, the technical problems this one displays are phenomenal.

156. I've got to love the concept Nov 5, 2002, 00:59 Verwirrung
 
AMERICA'S ARMY is Moral Relativism in its purest form, where players on *both* sides are handed the delusion that they're the "Americans".

Anyway, the utility of the game will very soon be moot; there's a legislative bill (H.R.3598, summarized at http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/bdquery/z?d107:HR03598:@@@L&summ2=m& ) sitting in the Senate just waiting for a Republican majority to get passed. Then the draft will be back, and all those kids will quickly find just how l33t the military is!

Too much of a coincidence to have the same unlikely thing reportedly happen so many times in the same geographic region.

(On edit: I just checked the archives of a bunch of Korean newspapers at http://www.kidon.com/media-link/korea-south.shtml, and not one of them mentions the stories attributed to South Korea. I doubt a search of Taiwanese or Thai websites would prove any more fruitful.)
