I've played thru the first four scenarios and I'm loving it so far. Think I'll buy this instead of Demigod.

I'm not trying to slight GPG by saying this because I know they love making games and seem to have a great work ethic. Not to mention a very nice work environment from what I remember... years ago. That said, depending on your views, their games range from great to horrid. Which is par for the course since you can't please everyone. Anyway, since I haven't seen anything about any free content beyond the two more Demigods that were mentioned I have to assume the new maps will be at a cost, right?

I've been on the fence for a few days and would also love a demo. Though I doubt we'll get one. No matter. The biggest hurdle for me is GPGs track record. I bought DS and was bored to tears about half way into it. Then I made the mistake of listening to a friend and bought DS2 so we could play Co-Op. I didn't even think about Space Siege or SC. So now I am wondering should I give them (GPG) one more try?

It looks fun. But after being let down by Tales of Valor I'm not sure I want to be let down (or screwed over) again... so soon.

As far as the whining goes... one mans whining is another mans legitimate complaint. Get use to it.

LMAO, hypocritical much? You sound like quite a few of the younger blokes I drank with in the pubs while I lived in jolly old England. I'm afraid like them you've let movies and the telly influence your thought process.

Let me fix this one for you, ok?

American movies seem to try and change events to suit them. Some would have you believe that American forces found the only enigma machine during the war and that America won the war by themselves.

There that's better?

This next one... I can't really fix because though you may be right to a degree you have totally forgotten your own countries history. I know we all do it from time to time. Do some reading and stop watching programing and/or movies expecting them to be the truth or even factual.

"You americans go on about war with terror, well us brits have had the IRA for years while you lot were giving them funds, as the IRA had a charity over in NY and you gave them money even knowing who they were, but at the time "YOU DIDNT GIVE A SHIT COS IT WASN'T IN YOUR BACK GARDEN." Now you want us to give a shit??"

Why do you think the IRA is doing what they are doing? Hmmm? I'm not saying it's right. And I surely don't agree but if I'm not mistaken your country took control of their country. Again read something besides comic books... though some of them can be quite entertaining.

"I believe that you caused the war with terror as you invaded the countries going off intel that Mr(moron)Bush had."

http://www.computerbytesman.com/privacy/blair.htm http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dodgy_dossier

Guess who was right there with us? Oh, but it was W's fault wasn't it? And do you think he was the one collecting that Intel? You do realize that he had numerous advisers and numerous agencies feeding him that info? Just like your own PM. Do you blame Tony Blair also?

"All i can say is that i wouldn't and never thought that the terrorists attacked the twin towers, I know all about physics and them towers didnt look like they fell down by themselves, it didnt make sense by the way they fell and at the speed they fell or how it could fall with the building structure as it was. Ok you saw 2 planes go into them but that isnt enough to bring them down. After reading the 911 report all i can say is that you have alot of very powerful people in your country who can hide anything."

Oh, boy! I think I watched the same program that you did. But I didn't come away with a degree in structural engineering as it appears you did. How's that working out for you? Have you landed any good jobs yet?

No country is perfect. The US has done a lot of stupid shit in the past but to think your country (or any other) hasn't is just retarded. Governments do what they deem best to protect their interests. That doesn't make it right.

I'm wondering what you think about the current administration? Please, enlighten me. I'm bored. One tip though use a spell checker next time... you won't seems so poorly educated.

OldScho0l, you nailed it. I was very interested in the game when the hoopla started and they used the word "realistic". Now they come out with this bullshit about "third person shooter". WTF? Has everyone lost touch with reality?

News Comments > GameStop New/Used Game Hijinks?
11. Re: GameStop New/Used Game Hijinks? Apr 10, 2009, 01:21 Paranoid Jack
 
LMAO, yeah not only GameStop but every store out there resells used as new. Bought a router from BestBuy years ago and got it home to find out it was locked down with somebodies password. They had repackaged it and resold it as new. I even noticed the box was a bit messed up and told the punk ass kid at the counter... he told me it was a new item.

So after using it for three weeks and finding out it was a shit wireless router I returned it and they most likely repackaged it and put it back on the shelf again. Only I wrote on the bottom of the modem, "this is not new, dumbass".

I've bought games through out the years from GameStop (or EB Games before it) that were empty boxes on the shelf where they had to go in the back to locate the disc(s). Even though they had door sensors to stop theft. So I figured they were opening them to try them out.

Are they still smoking weed out back too... I wonder?

I'm starting to feel as if this expansion isn't quite as good as it could have been. I loved the original and the first add-on though it took some getting use to. I mostly play skirmish mode and some multi-player. Hardly played the campaigns but what I did play was a hell of a lot longer than Tiger Ace.

This expansion adds about ten or twelve new vehicles to skirmish mode but those are scattered through out the four armies. I also played through the Tiger Aces campaign so fast I couldn't believe it was over so quickly. There are two more but I'd bet they're just as brief.

I haven't played any of the new multi-player modes yet nor have I figured out how many new maps where added though it doesn't appear to be very many. Oh, well. I guess it's par for the course lately. Always being let down by what's being released on PC lately.

Has anyone else bought it and felt the same?

Funny that you posted about this today. I just got a pop up and deverted from Blues to SpywareRemover.Com but when I tried to exist the shit it was clearly spyware or worse. I got a link sent to my e-mail about this thread but when I got there the thread had no new posts. I had already seen them yesterday or the day before.

http://www.bluesnews.com/cgi-bin/board.pl?action=viewthread&threadid=97207

As soon as I read the last post and realized it was not a new post the warning popped up advising me I had spyware and changed from the Blue's thread to a bogus SpywareRemover.Com site.

I'm beta testing Vista 2.0 ..... I mean Windows 7 Ultimate. Has anyone else had this?

It's just an opinion Fion. No evidence needed. Like most of what gets posted on the Internet it's just somebodies opinion...

Edit: As far as the hold up for the consoles... I'd bet it's the PS3 that is late to the party so EA wants to put the brakes on the PC version. No matter it's done either way...

"The whole game is a love letter to PC gamers and Baldur's Gate, but you take it as a sign Bioware doesn't care about PC gamers? I seriously wonder how you got to that conclusion."

A love letter? More like a Dear John letter. This game was a PC exclusive... that became a 360 to release later... to the current it's done but you can't have it because we want a simultaneous release. You may be ok with it but I'm not.

We the PC gamers are the ones who bought all their early titles, we were loyal fans, we even bought some of their crap console ports for the PC, and this is how they repay us... when they finally get around to making another game designed specifically for the PC? A game that is supposed to be a return to their roots... which is now tarnished with this bullshit EA decision to screw over the PC gamers because if they release it on PC now it will somehow negatively effect the consoles?

Clearly I am not the only PC Gamer that feels this way. I may change my mind by the time they are finally ready to bless us with the PC release but I doubt it. Negative PR has caused more than a few well made games to flounder. Not to mention judging from their last few releases I feel they've lost touch with what made their (PC) games great. Yeah, I know selling a shit load of games at Walmart is what they are really shooting for now. So good luck to them.

So DLC has become the replacement to their one or two expansion pack average that they've been doing for the past decade? Makes sense since the consoles have become their main focus... it almost goes without saying.

I'm hoping there will be other games to keep me busy until the first Exp/DLC goes retail. I've already decided to hold off purchasing DAO as long as I can... since they don't really give two shits about their old PC fan-base any longer.

Edit: Am I bitter? Yeah, you could say that. Remember when the Doctors made that media release about the company not changing? That even though EA owned their souls they would still continue to work like an independent company.

I love CoH (both the original and Opposing Fronts) it's easily the best RTS in my opinion. I was hoping they would add more armies from other countries... but this should still be good. Not sure how it will mesh with the older units though. I haven't followed it that closely.

Another good thing is that this should be out just before or just after we go on strike... so I'll have lots of time to enjoy it.

Yeah, but Gothics game worlds blow away anything Morrowind or Oblivion had going for them. Even before this added goodness the community created to make it G3 Enhanced Edition. Yeah there were a few bugs and the combat was spam attacks but for me it has always been more fun than those others...

Thanks (again) for all the info, Sho. I'm back into it and having a blast again.

Some bad news... it won't run on Windows 7 (64 Bit). Not sure about Vista 64. I've tried the usual Compatibility option running as XP SP2 and Vista SP1 but the engine (Genome Gaming System) is crashing during the booting of the game.

I'm searching for a work around now. Has anyone else figured out how to get the game to install and run properly on Vista or Win7 (aka Vista v2.0)?

Edit: More kudos to the fans who made these patches and add-ons. After installing just run the official patch v1.12 then the unofficial v1.6 and finally v1.7 (not sure if 1.7 has the contents of 1.6). Anyway after running the first community patch the game runs fine on Win7 so I imagine it will run fine on Vista also. They removed whatever bug it was causing the games engine to crash on boot up.

Very good to hear. Thanks for all the info. I'm going to reload it soon. Hope they'll do an English version of the community add-on.

Can't wait for Piranha Bytes next game.

I know I'm lazy. Well at least when it comes to researching what this patch and the previous ones do...

Anyway, do they address the combat issues in G3?

I'm enjoying it... in spurts though... while I play several other games off and on. I agree with most of what he states but think he is overly harsh at times. But then I'm only a third of the way into it... if that. My main complaint is the camera in tight spots if you're using AWSD and hit a glitch it spins you around and you end up going in the opposite direction.

Also it seems his familiarity with the setting and their rules clearly gives him a huge advantage. I find the combat challenging quite a bit. There are areas which I have had to turn back and level a bit before returning. Not to mention I rarely use potions while playing.

Not a bad game for $29.
