As for the lack of governors for the settlements, you know you can turn that off at the start of the game in both MTW2 and Rome so you can manage all settlements without need for family members. I think its a much better game with that setting since you can use your family as generals and not moving them around from one city to the next.

Yes I knew that, and I always turned it off. But still your settlements will all make no profits or huge minus because no governor is there. Riots will rise up much quicker too. Especially at the beginning of the game you need money money money. You cant get it when you have no governors because your cities will make minus.

Managing a lot of settlements wasnt the problem for me. But managing them efficiently was a huge problem since I never had enough family members to cover all of them and also have a few armies going. Anyway, Rome was very cool, though it sucked sometimes when you told you units to go there or attack that, and they simply would go somewhere else or attack something completely different. or when you told your cavalry to charge the fleeing unit they would simply walk besides them until they reached the map border. Lots of stuff like that.

I bought MTW2, and I was extremely disappointed. The campaign is so fucking hard and stupid its not funny. I was so frustrated, I simply uninstalled it after a few hours of play. The stupid Vatican always gave me orders to join a crusade but I didnt have the troops to send em there and soon after they got angry at me and excommunicated me. That made several other AIs attack me at the same time. Nothing I could do.
Not to mention the lack of governors was 10 times worse than in RomeTW.
I might try it again at some time, but not any time soon. I really hope they fixed stupid stuff like that in Empire.

Well, if you look at HAWX, you will notice its just a souped up Afterburner with a Tom Clancy tag on top (dunno why he would give his good name for such a crap game). So no need to call out for realism or authenticity.

I bet more non-entertainment companies wish they could blame their customers for shitty sales and call them criminals.
Ignorance par excellence. Nothing new.

But Ill give those idiots a hint: I was a huge fan of the Splinter Cell series. Bought all of them (even that POS Starforce infested Chaos Theory), except Double Agent. Why?
Because I had no money? No.
Because I pirated it instead? No.
Because my computer was too slow? No.
Because IT WAS A FUCKING POS CONSOLE PORT WHICH DIDNT EVEN ALLOW TO SET CUSTOM CONTROLS PROPERLY?
DING DING DING!

And that was just an example out of many more. But sure, go ahead and blame the HUGE HUGE HUGE base of pirates. Doesnt matter if you dont have a simple fact about piracy being that big of an impact. Also doesnt matter that your credibility goes down the drain if you count every single copy as lost sale. Ignorance will help make it all good for sure!

Actually it might be a good thing when all the big developers and publishers wont release for the PC anymore, because the small developers will get MUCH more money then and will start PC gaming over again, as it was 10-20 years ago. High quality games will be released again, maybe even the flight sim, space sim and adventure genres will be resurrected again!

So they are making a few tweaks to the engine (what the patch should have done for free) and making a "new" parallel story and calling it a new game (for prolly $40)?

Yep, thats my EA.

I don't want it now - I wanted it 10 years ago.

Thats included in that mentality.
Seriously, if you dont want "news" about, ignore em. Sure, you might miss the release announcement, but who cares, you dont want it anymore anyway.

And I thought I was an extremely impatient SOB...

Didnt some guys had a script to replace "Starforce" by some other word? Why dont you make one that replaces DNF news with porn or WoW2 news if its bothering you so much?

I dont understand all this bitching. I understood it at the very beginning when they still told us release dates, but jesus, this is so long ago, people need to get over it. Either this game comes out or it doesnt come out. If it sucks, who cares? If its good, it was worth waiting and you dont need to be a fanboy to see it that way.
This "I want to play it now!" mentality reminds me much more of 12 year olds than of PC gaming "veterans"...

lol... if people can decide what will be shown in the series it will prolly be like this:
"OMG HE SAID PENIS!"
"OMG!!111oneeleven!1"
"Everyone vote for this to be shown in the series!!!!"
"Already done!"

1 week later in the new episode:
Todays episode "The Penis Penis Intervention" will show gory verbal cockfights between Col. Glans and Capt. Scrotum. Who will prevail and save Earth from total censorship of the invading prude aliens?

Wasnt MM6 that awesome "fantasy" game where you found an alien weapon and computers and other Sci-Fi crap? I remember quitting that game as soon as I got there, because it destroyed the atmosphere completely. I rather play some comic shit like WoW with tanks and zeppelins instead.
I even got that game for my 18th birthday I think. Man, I was so pissed.

Dont get me wrong, I love Sci-Fi, but it doesnt have any place in fantasy RPGs.

So this announcement just tells me to keep my hands off of it.

That's funny. My cousin and I were one of the.. *cough*.. "elite" players in Tribes. Hell, the bastard was 13 and I was 15, if we weren't even younger than that *thinks*

And still the Tribes community was much more mature than those of other games. Even Tribes 2's was horrible compared to it.

All you guys who say Tribes doesnt come close to the tactical gameplay of Counter Strike (or ET, whatever), its very obvious you never really played that game. Ive seen the best teamplay in Tribes and only in Tribes. The only game that came remotely close to it was Operation Flashpoint. But only with voice chat.

I think that game was indeed too fast for you since you dont even seem to understand the maneuvers and tactics showed in that video.
Your teammate catching the flag in mid air when you intentionally drop it? A light picking up the enemy flag just to let it drop unexpectedly to another light who goes the completely different way just so all the light defense is fucked? Heavy offense which keeps the enemy team busy and destroys their defense while you grab their flag? The awesome (even on public servers) support you always got? Actually teamplay on tribes remembered me much more about WoW arena fights with a team you know well. Now THATS teamplay.
That pretty effective (and still more used than voice chat today) communications menu was fucking awesome and you could tell people what they need to know extremely fast. It was also fun to use. Remember those conversations "You idiot! No! Yes! No! Yes! Shazbot!"? Nowadays you think if some 14 year old boy who sounds like a girl tells me to get our flag back, I will do that? Haha... Much better to hide your age behind voiceovers for such situations. Thats also why there are still so many people not using voice chat since they are simply too shy. That voice menu made Tribes such a cool game because people actually used it actively to make the game more effectively. A public server in Tribes felt like a Guild server (today) in other games. You should have seen in in clan matches... It was the figure skating of computer games. Just much faster.

He is right. There is no game that matches the speed of Tribes. Even its successors didnt archive that. T3 looked promising in the beta but they dumbed (and slowed it) down right before release. Didnt feel any different than Tribes 2.

People try to blame piracy again?

Hint: I didnt even download the demo because I know my computer would be far too slow, hell even my friends super machine cant play it fast enough.
Another Hint: Guess what was one of the big reasons why World of Warcraft sold so well and why games like Age of Conan wont be that successful?

Also, if you still buy or pirate an EA game, its your own fault anyway.

And whats that bullshit about Psychonauts? I never even heard that name before...
Its common sense that the well known games are pirated the most and games that nobody knows are pirated almost not at all. Also adventures are not very successful anymore anyway. Sooo lets see where does our awesome conclusion of these facts bring us...? Right, its pirates fault!

You guys almost sound like politicians who always blame others.

I dont play it.
...people all over the wolrd and taking the game LIGHTLY!

Thats funny, you reacted like some little boy who got told that the toy car hes playing with isnt the fastest in the world.
But yeah, its pretty obvious you dont play it judging by that phrase, or you simply are that obessed with it already that you became completely numb.
Its true, the creators laugh at their customers face. Thats the whole point. They dont care shit about a good game (the old development team did maybe), they just care about cash. If you only compare *censored*'s support to games in the past you should notice it instantly, especially because games in the past had maybe 1/20 of that kind of money available and still offered far better support, bug fixing, balancing, new ideas, etc. It actually takes *censored* up to 6 months now to fix a serious bug or balancing issue, if at all. And if you look at their ideas to fix things, some 10 year old kid with no experience at all could do as well. I really would like to see a meeting of them deciding things. I bet its pure comedy.

Its not true however that all people take that game lightly. There are far too many addicted and fanboys in it (or both). But even if so, people ignoring the fact that they are being milked, getting no quality for their money, is pretty bad and either makes it obvious that so many are addicted or simply dont care for quality. But as I said, the majority doesnt even pay for it by themselves, so I guess thats why they take it so "LIGHTLY". Mommy and daddys money isnt worth so much.

Anyway, right now more and more people notice that (maybe they grow up finally). Read the forums or talk to people online, there have never been so many people being mad at *censored*. Maybe something changes now. But I dont care much anymore. I just stopped playing again because finally my friends got new computers so they can finally play better and newer games and dont have to stay in that POS anymore to be able to do something together with me.

Muscular Beaver are you talking abotu WoW?

If you are get off your lil Immature hate wagon.

Bitter non epic owning Non PVP lil pussie

Only peeps like you complain of WoW, over 4 million play the game, but you right Muscular Beaver it sucks...


YAY FOR THE BANDWAGON JUMPIN LIL ASS HAT!!!!!

p.s. Sorry if you were not speaking of WoW

Im on the bandwagon? Over 10 million people play that pos. And *I* am on a bandwagon? I found it out myself because I freaking played it for years.

And you should know very well that sales or how many people play a game doesnt show how good it is. It just shows how successful it was at getting cash in.
To me it proves also how many people (especially teenagers nowadays) have no taste at all anymore and dont care for quality at all (no, I am not talking about the release, Im talking about *censored* now). Given that most of them dont even pay for it by themselves, I actually understand it a bit.

Anyway thanks for the insults and your idiotic assumptions. They prove one thing very well - that you are a fanboy par excellence and that nothing will change your narrow-minded view.
And nope, you wont get a job at *censored* for defending them. I am very sorry.

I had a coworker was was totally psyched by this, and when he was trying to sell me on it, I said "But it's from SOE." and all the excitement went out of his face.

I hope youre not one of those who think there are better MMO developers out there.
I made that mistake. 4 years ago I actually told my friends to get over to *censored* because it was not from SOE but from the awesome *censored*.
A few months later I felt like a complete moron and retard because of that phrase and my friends still tease me every once in a while because of it.

Up to date I still think Origin was the best MMO developer. But they are long gone. But *censored* is by far the worst Ive ever known, even though their non-MMOs were sometimes real good. But that was a long time ago aswell, and I think they had a whole different development team back then which left shortly before they released *censored*.

I have never ever complained about paying money on a game that just had a shitty plot or other similar stuff. Its the features, the atmosphere, the gameplay, how things fit in the world, the controls etc. Those have to work out for me, or its not worth my money. I cant see that in trailers or even reviews. A simple demo will help me clear 95% of that out. I dont need to play 3 hours into the game. mostly 5-30 mins is enough. Some games require more time (I remember Tribes 1 being such a game), but those games dont give me a bad feeling about the whole game. I actually notice its just me needing to learn it before its getting good.

Oh and btw, you can hear whole CDs in shops, not just the start of a track.
And even if you are too lazy to get out and buy your music in a shop, there are several other websites that have far better samples than Amazon. So youre not using your "responsibility as a customer", I guess.

Alright thats it this time for real.
