is oleg involved in this expansion? he needs to focus on finishing SOW.

This IS Storms of War. They just attached the IL-2 brand to it and changed the title to something a touch less generic.

They had better bring that CE version to the US, I want that 150 page instruction manual!

Likewise. This will be a day one, collector's edition purchase for me.

Well Dragon Age was pretty fucking terrible, and NWN2 wasn't any better, so yeah. Fortunately Mask of the Betrayer was superb.

Well in fairness, the new community site has been up for a couple months now, and its official launch was about a week ago. During all that time this is the first instance where I've seen it down.

what's the definition of 'Synonym' again?

Synonym refers to words with the same, or extremely close, meaning. In other words, mage and wizard both mean the same thing.

Oh it's out. The patch is up. I watched the intro movie and can stare at the login screen of Deathwing perched on the gates of Stormwind. The actual servers are still down for maintenance and won't be up for another hour or two though.

This article doesn't make it clear, but there are only a few hours left of the original WoW world. When the servers go back up after weekly maintenance tomorrow morning, the cataclysm will have happened and all the new 1-60 content will go live. The Worgen, Goblins, and the 81-85 content require purchasing Cataclysm when it's released on the 7th, but otherwise Cataclysm is live tomorrow at around 11AM PST.

Still, the game does not look good at all. It may surprise on release, but if I had to bet, my money would be on this being as big a debacle as Star Wars Galaxies.

The reboots with Craig were far too serious and felt like a two hour long episode of 24. He was basically a British Jack Bauer.

I take it that you haven't read any of the novels. Lemme guess, Roger Moore is your favorite Bond?

And Creston cannot into bestsellers apparently.

For those who are curious, the Complete moniker is a bit misleading. The adventure pack included in this release is in fact nothing more than an extra merchant who sold a half-dozen or so unique items. Still a solid game though.

I haven't played a FF games since Tactics on the PSX, and my understanding is that FF14 is soul-draining Asian grindfest MMO, but I do really appreciate that Square continues to make games for their fans rather than "innovating to bring the experience to a whole new audience", where innovating means just ripping off what ever is popular at the moment and fobbing it off as something new and exciting.

News Comments > Xbox 360 Auction for Brian Wood Trust

I have to admit that I'm a bit dubious of the whole "swerving to put his body in the way" thing. I don't wish to imply that that wasn't in the guy's character -- I'm sure it was -- but accidents like these happen so quickly and are so surprising there is no time to consciously make such a decision. One second you're absorbed in the banality of driving home or to work like you do everyday, and the next second there is an SUV bouncing across the freeway like a basketball leaving a trail of shattered glass, metal and plastic.

I live right by Palo Alto, which has one of the coffee shops mentioned in the article. It's been a while since I was last in a Palo Alto coffee shop, but the description of Matrix-like zombies with lukewarm cups who type but don't talk is entirely appropriate. One would think that a coffee house would be a social destination, but instead it's become yet one more place to isolate from the rest of the world with technology. I'm not a coffee drinker, but if I were, I would make a point of patronizing these cafes that have turned off wifi.

At this point, I think they're really overrating how popular this game is going to be.

If this bombs I'm going to be giddy.

You can kiss what's left of PC gaming goodbye at that point.

As for the cost, it sounds about right. The game has been in development since 2003, which averages out to a little less than $15 million per year of development, which is about average for a AAA title. I think this is just an instance where costs are high because development was so long.

I thought AP was pretty decent. Wasn't perfect but I don't think it deserved all the flack it got. Definitely wasn't surprised it didn't sell though.

Obsidian Wouldn't Mind Tackling A Chrono Trigger Sequel.

WTF? I enjoy their games despite the flaws, but that seems to be an incredibly bad idea.

The comment was in answer to a speculative "If there was one Square/Enix property you'd like to work on, what would it be?" sorta question. The question prompted of course by Square's ownership of Gas Powered Games whose Dungeon Siege property Obsidian is now developing a sequel for. I highly doubt Chrono Trigger 2: Torment is in the offing anytime soon.

10. Re: BioWare now BioWare Mythic Jul 2, 2010, 00:22 Scottish Martial Arts
 
I believe EA has been wanting to put together a dedicated RPG division, like EA Sports, under the Bioware brand. EA's MMO studio, Mythic, is probably being renamed Bioware Mythic to reflect that branding.

News Comments > QUAKE Engine Retrospective
4. Re: QUAKE Engine Retrospective Jun 26, 2010, 02:33 Scottish Martial Arts
 
It's kinda lame. They claim that a bunch of quake engine games are indexed in Germany, and that since the site's servers are in Germany screenshots of those games aren't included. Of those that they do feature, the dates are wrong on a couple of them and even more are out of chronological order. And for some arbitrary reason they left out Half-Life. They say they left the Half-Life branch of quake engine games on purpose but seeing that that branch consists of just Half-Life + expansion and Gunman, that seems pretty retarded.
