If you thought (or think) that WAR's graphics are bad... it's either a matter of your bad taste or your old video card, sorry. Yes, some MMOs are better looking than others but again it's a matter of taste not poor graphics in my opinion. Kind of like having a WoW player stating that AoC or WAR look bad... but you're saying you still play AO and WARs graphics put you off? That's down right baffling.

Anyway has anyone seen or played the Choppa or Slayer yet?

Damn, does this mean they have yet to fix the PvP consequences? I've been waiting to hear it's fixed... but I've seen more negative than positive since leaving the game two or three months after retail.

So does the game finally have a deterrent to stop the asshole griefers (twenty and thirty levels above me) from repeatedly spawn camping low level players?

And don't give me that QQ shit.

The exact reason why my friend stopped paying for two games and then quit.

My brother was using it but I think he has also quit. Of course he was two years behind on his games so most of the sports games he wanted to play were actually available.

I only used the service for a month or three over the past three years. And I always cancel it quickly after starting it up. Funny how you pay for a month yet when you cancel they tell you they need their games back within days... not by the end of your subscription.

Still it's far cheaper than buying all those short games. If you play a lot of them. I keep going back to the PC on the other hand.

LittleMe, hit the END button to take direct control. Then your mouse has the aiming cursor (the turret follows it) and the ARROW keys move the tank. It's a little back asswards compared to Western games but as long as it's configurable in the retail version it works.

These guys did a great job with that in their first games but it is kind of spotty in this one. I've noticed some glitches with both movement orders and other orders in the interface. Trying to change from one unit to another via mouse is a severe pain in the ass. Sometimes taking as many as three clicks. Unless I'm just doing something wrong the interface is kind of whacked.

Besides that it's makes me want to reinstall Soldiers.

mag, that is exactly what I thought of 'Pitch Black', one of the worst movies I have ever seen. So bad I never want to see another movie with Vin. The only roll I like him in was Saving Private Ryan because he got popped by a sniper and died before he could ruin the movie.

Kind of like Seagal. Best movie of his is when he dies (letting Kurt Russel board the plane) before he could ruin the rest of the movie. http://www.stevenseagal.com/

Let's hope it doesn't take them an extra year (and then some) to get an English language version on shelves.

And yes... The Dark Eye is due out in the next couple days according to EB Games.

Edit: Has anyone got a copy of The Dark Eye? I just noticed that EB Games/GameStop have it listed as 'Backordered'. Anyone heard wtf is going on with the release or if there has been an official release?

To tell the truth I've not seen any of the Riddick movies after a co-work and manager talked me into seeing the horrid 'Pitch Black'.

See the locked 86 page thread on the Official Forums. Their PR guy confirmed that it was in fact part of the reason with little explanation. Then a page or two later tries to retract the statement.

The damned game was nearing gold why else would they delay for six to eight months? If they need more polish do you really think it would take them that much longer?

Also if polish is indeed the main reason do you really think they would spend six more months just polishing? It's all about marketing. My guess is they could stop or just continue with the current marketing and then put out the ads for the console release. I highly doubt the sales for the PC version would falter because of it.

The game looks fantastic and the PC market is starved for this type of game. How could they lose by releasing the PC version first?

Edit: Here's the link, see page two fourth post down by the OP. No, I didn't read the entire 86 pages. After four pages I pretty much got the gist of it...

When the news broke that it was delayed I didn't pay much attention to it. I figured no biggie a month or two longer won't hurt anything. Then my friend told me the date and I text him saying those @#$%^& $%&(&*@ delayed it until the console release date.

When I got home from work the other day I finally decided to read the thread from their forums and near the beginning there's admittance that that was part of the reason... I was pissed... then later the same guy trying to retract the statement? I just stopped there. 86 pages and I don't want to know nor do I care.

My guess was Dragon Age's development shifted toward the consoles when EA took control. It appears to be true since they aren't far behind.

Yeah, I'm pissed. But everybody knows money talks. Once you've sold your soul to the devil... or EA... you are nothing more than a puppet.

If anything else comes out at release I'll be buying that instead of Dragon Age. When I buy it I'll buy it as late as I possibly can and if the player reviews are negative I may not buy it at all.

It's not a stretch to feel betrayed after all the BS about this being a PC exclusive... then console releases... to the present situation. And if you are one of those thinking they are going to use this time to polish the PC version... for six months... you are high. I'd bet the team has already been striped down and moved on to other projects or toward the consoles.

Maybe somebody who lurks among the Bioware forums can shed some more light. Not that it will change most of our attitudes...

Is anyone else annoyed now whenever new Dragon Age info or screens are released? Remember them (Biowares) saying how they would still operate as an independent studio nothing would change? Too ironic...

Acleacius, thanks for the info on that program. I translated the read-me but can't seem to figure out what button on the programs menu saves the settings to your G2 folder.

I think I got the rest of the settings figured out just can't seem to get them to stick or work in game. What am I missing?

I've also left the program open and running with the NotR Lite settings on... yet when I leveled up the settings seemed to be the original NotR.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I had some fun with the demo but wasn't planning on buying it just yet. Too much else going on. After hearing this I may just get it now after all.

I'm one of those who loves Steam too. Were else can you download your games over and over after wiping a drive or building a new system.

I bought a game from a damned Polish on-line distributor and after a rebuild they not only won't let me download it again but stopped responding to my e-mails. Live and learn people.

Trying to get Night of the Raven with that G2 Gold but it won't allow me to create an account. I tried twice and it never sends an e-mail. I assume you have to verify your account via e-mail like all others?

Anyone else having this issue?

It went forward because he was hit on the arm from that side. He was drawing it back for the throw (no doubt) but never began the forward motion before being hit since he never saw it coming.

There were two other calls that were questionable but then there are always a few. Its part of the game. Even with the disputes it will never be perfect. Humans never are.

"I can't remember when I cared less about a Super Bowl in 34 years of watching them. "

You missed a great game if you didn't tune in. Two years straight... the NFL is on a roll.
