Huge Loss? Anyone who wants the new version isn't buying the old one anymore either way. Only those who are poorly informed or have no patience are buying the older 3GS.

It's old school RTS... and I never cared much for the original... so when comparing it to something like CoH, I'll pass.

I still have my hopes set on D3.

Midnight can't come soon enough. I even took a guys weekend duty so that I could also have his day-off... you guessed it... tomorrow. I better get some shuteye before the midnight release. I want to play a few hour or until the sunrise if I can.

I loved G3 more than Oblivion. And if you want to talk about a game with show-stopping bugs look no farther than FO3. To this day I haven't finished it due to the constant crashes to desktop. I plan on picking up FO3 GOTY for the PS3 since the PC version won't run on my current system for more than a few minutes. Of course if I build a new PC anytime soon I may be able to play it then...

Early on the PvP servers were a mixed bag. I loved the one on one or even taking on two people trying to gank me. Even better was for them to find out I could kill them both and they would come back for revenge until I killing them repeatedly. Chasing them out of the zone.

Hunting some solo gankers was great fun... as long as their level wasn't too far out of league with yours. I even had a hit list of ass-hats who I hunted whenever possible. Well, until so many players hit the level cap and started grieving low level players at spawn areas (as somebody else pointed out earlier in this thread).

Without a doubt some of the best MMO combat to date. I want to try it again but I'll have to start a new character this time. I jumped in for a welcome back thing and could barely remember how to play the old characters.

Not a bad looking CE. Hope it's not $99.99 like some other CE is selling for...

edit: Not sure if I should be happy it's only $79.99 or $69.99 if you go PC.

I've got it pre-ordered for the PS3. But who knows I may still be too busy with Red Dead Redemption to buy it on release. I'm also worried that the over-all feel and mechanics (game-play) will look/feel kind of clunky. Ever since seeing a video of actual in-game combat that looked poorly animated... several months back... I have been second guessing the purchase on release day option.

Is this real enough for you?

I just got it via e-mail. I don't troll their forums or sites. But I'm interested on seeing the game in action... maybe even beta testing if I get lucky. Most likely will play this one at some point in the next year or two since it's not slated until next year. According to some guy on their forum...

Edit: I found even more bad-ass in-game combat videos. Check out the combat tactics of the Sarlacc Enforcer.

As soon as I heard the game was about six hours or less... not to including the Co-Op... I canceled my pre-order.

These types of corperations and their dealings have destroyed the American economy by screwing over the little guy with their douchebaggery. They screw everyone in their path all in the name of greed.

Have you been working for Corporate America too? After you work for a corporation for more than a year you start to realize that greed is the driving factor for ever single thing they do... nothing else matters.

LOL, thats exactly what I said to a friend earlier today. In fact as I recall, didn't new line claim they didn't owe anything because the money was supposed to be a percentage of the net, and they said they didn't make any net money on the LotR trilogy? (aka hollywood math, kinda like music studio math)

Were I work (for the Evil Empire) we call that fuzzy math. Meaning they can spin the numbers to mean whatever it is they want them to mean. Even if it make no sense what so ever. For example... I am graded on ten different factors to determine what my over-all productivity is. Half of those factors are controlled by the company. It's the same reason why the Union had the team award removed from the contract because the company would constantly spin the info and short us on our bonus. The less money they give to employees the more money they get to keep... greed is good, if you're already filthy rich.

Nothing new here. And I agree it's the greed of the filthy rich that has ruined this country and our economy. From the corruption in our government to the CEOs running these douchebag companies.

Yeah, it was like beta testing the original Ultima Online. They mailed you a CD. Crazy how far we beta testers have come, right? When I beta tested Age of Conan they made us download pretty much the entire game client each week. Instead of just patches. If I remember right it was over 29GB.

After hearing a reviewer stating that the single player game for Splinter Cell Conviction is just over five hours long... I now know why they are really hyping the beta access codes package in with the discs.

Even with the Co-Op game adding several more hours of game play it's a no sale for me and most of the friends I have spoke with. Sad that under ten hours is now the norm.

5. Re: Commandos 4 Revealed Apr 12, 2010, 12:46 Paranoid Jack
 
I agree, C1 and C2 were better than C3 though C3 had a lot of good ideas gone horribly wrong. I can't speak for Strike Force but from looking at the reviews I didn't miss much.

http://www.metacritic.com/games/platforms/pc/commandosstrikeforce#usercomments

What I'd like to see them do is take C4 even further... something more toward the game-play in Silent Storm but improve on the formula even more. I know there isn't a huge market for that so the chances are about the same as a snowball in Hell. Either way since we are just wishing here I figured I would throw in my two cents.

Glad to see so many of you are so open minded as to play indie games... yet you must admit it's very bizarre that some are also so close minded as not to except someone else's opinion concern a game. Strange crowd here at times.

Maybe I'm just getting old and didn't smell the blood in the water?

Mag, sorry I didn't get back to you sooner. As far as I can see the downloads and activations are not a problem. You will need to deactivate copies before building a new system or reinstalling your OS I would assume. Though I just migrated from Window 7 RC to Windows 7 Professional and the game (Dragon Age) was on a separate partition and works fine from either copy last I checked.

You can even register your DVD keys and download a copy from EAs site if you break or lose the disc. Not bad as far as I'm concerned. Not that most of us will use the feature.

I gave ATi several tries over the years. The last one was returned for the very same reason it had been years since my last attempt at happiness with an ATi card... driver support is still spotty at best. Far fewer issues with Nvidia cards over the years. And that is the only reason I still buy Nvidia over ATi.

I may give them another try when I build my next system but I'll have to buy someplace local that accepts returns.

What is ironic about switching to a lesser game rig?

LoL, that's one of those d'uh! comments, isn't it? The whole situation is ironic. What you just stated included. Plus with all the PC release issues currently being complained about I figured it couldn't be more evident. I won't agrue with you that the PC is the better gaming rig. It is. Most of the time.
