Yes, because to be an RPG you have to level up, do quests and collect a bunch of shit. Your idea of an RPG is pretty limited.

I don't understand all the criticism of this game. Is it just a continuation of the nonsensical Valve bashing that plagues Blues? Anything remotely connected to Valve sucks and you'll invent reasons if you have to?

Even judging from a press release, the game sounds good to me. A first person action-RPG from the makers of Arx Fatalis is not something to complain about.

I'm going to trust people who have actually seen the game more than a bunch of reflexive bashers who have no idea what it will be like.

In a good way though. From what I've read, Allied Force is incredibly stable overall. Releasing patches like this is just good support, not evidence of rushed programming like F4 was.

Even if it's not thrown out immediately, the lawyers can tie it up in court until she dies.

Is submitting a game for rating an 'advertising claim'? I guess it's vaguely related ...

3rd party modifications are a whole different issue than this problem of unlocking questionable content left in by the developers themselves. If Epic left in nude skins for the Unreal characters and people unlocked them, the same problem would occur.

Wasn't the nude Mona skin in Max Payne 2 simply unlocked? Why didn't that raise such a stink? I know Rockstar included simulated sex, so it's not the same thing, but I wonder if Remedy announced the nude skin to the ESRB.

@DOD:Source Screen Shots. HAHAHAHAHAHAHH
AHAHAHAHAHHAHAAHAHHA, oh man, no seriously show us the real shots....really. AHAHHAHHAHAHAHAHAH HAHAHAHAHAHAH.
Oh man, good joke, seriously, show us what you've been doing to really show off the source engine.


Since when was DoD supposed to show off the Source engine? That's what Lost Coast is for, surely. DoD: Source is just an update of a popular game that's been around for years.

My computer isn't nearly good enough to run B2, but this tournament stuff sounds excellent. Too bad about the subscription crap though.

I'm concerned about the Oblivion interface. They've designed it to cater to TV screens, and judging from the single screenshot that includes subtitles, the text is BIG. Not quite as bad as DX: Invisible War, but it's not far off. I thought Morrowind's interface was slick and functional, so I hope they don't make things unnecessarily simple.

True, Lurker. For all we complain about EA, they've published a lot of great games over the years. System Shock 2 not least of all. They've given funding to risky games as well, like The Sims (they might have milked it, but like it or not it was a risk to begin with). They're publishing Spore as well. There's good and bad in everyone.

Maybe the GOTY edition will have the expansion included. That should be out before long.

EA titles through Steam? Impulse purchases ahoy!

Surely the point of Steam is that EA does not get money for those sales. So they're Valve titles, not EA titles. Maybe that's it: a big ploy by Valve to make even more people use Steam, a lesser of two evils kinda thing.

Though personally I don't consider Steam an evil at all, unlike the Valve bashers patrolling this site.

More generally, I can't believe all those American stores would refuse to carry a product intended for people over 18. That country really needs to lighten up.

Read that again. The fourth fiscal quarter, ending March 2006. They're going to miss Christmas.

These graphics address one of the criticisms people had about episodic releases. If you're deliberately avoiding 'realistic' graphics, it doesn't matter if they grow old between episode releases. The game will always have that distinct style, even if newer engines can crank out more polygons.

News Comments > SiN Episodes Announced
43. Re: Hmmm.... Jul 7, 2005, 22:35 Squirmer
 
You can't talk about Sin 2 in normal terms because it's not structured in the usual way. The complete pack of episodes is not 'Sin 2: The Game'. The game is episodic in nature; it's not Sin 2: part 1, Sin 2: part 2, etc.

The final number of episodes might amount to $100, but there would be a fair number of gameplay hours in that. It's fairer to compare it to a regular shooter plus a couple of expansions, in which case the cost is similar.

The bottom line is this: even if you choose to buy Sin 2 you only need to pay $20 to try it. Beyond that, the choice is yours. It will only cost $100 if you choose to pay that much, just like you can choose to buy expansions.

The way i see it i rather get my games from the developer
Maybe not thru steam but it would be nice if the pimp publishers got cut out of the mix.. Ohh! but wait where would the development money come from?


The good thing about Sin 2's system is that if you can afford to fund the first episode you'll make enough money to fund the rest (as long as your game is good). Most developers still can't afford that initial cost on their own though.

If I were EA and I wanted the same people who made System Shock 2 to make a sequel, I could contract the same people to make System Shock 3 (assuming they are all still alive). There is nothing impossible about it. Enough money could solve any problem which might arise in doing that.

What? You expect Ken Levine to dissolve Irrational Games and move over to EA just to make System Shock 3 when he's already working on the 'spiritual sequel' in Bioshock? You think that would actually happen?

Speak for yourself. I like ambiguity. And looking at the huge amount of articles written about The Matrix trilogy, I'm not alone.
