3. For the best Oct 24, 2006, 14:17 Xoxotl
 
While I have to admit I'm disappointed, I realize that it's for the best. Better Blizzard puts out a good expansion then bow to the marketing pressure and rush it out of the door in time for Christmas.

Maybe I'm paranoid, but it seems like a great way to get people's account/password to steal their account...

13. Death to Starforce! Mar 27, 2006, 13:56 Xoxotl
 
I've already cancelled my pre-order when I found out it was coming with Starforce. I've had to re-format my system twice when Starforce screwed up my hard drive (first with Silent Hunter 3, and then with X3 DVD Version).

I'm thinking either Jagged Alliance or (I hope!) X-COM.

Ugh. Just followed the link posted in another comment and saw that "Space Rangers 2" had Starforce. Just sent an e-mail to Gamestop cancelling my pre-order.

The Starforce on "X3 (DVD)" screwed up my HD's RAID-0 array, forcing me to wipe it and re-install Windows. Twice. (I reinstalled "X3" before learning what Starforce was.)

But allow young jimmie to buy a game rated M for Mature, download a mod and use a secret password that shows a pixelated sex scene, and all the right wing freaks go batshit crazy.

Hillary Clinton is a right wing freak?

Clinton, D-N.Y., is asking the Federal Trade Commission to probe how users of the game can access "graphic pornographic and violent content" for the game from the Internet.
(snip)
In that speech to media experts and child advocates, she singled out "Grand Theft Auto" as particularly harmful, saying it "has so many demeaning messages about women and so encourages violent imagination and activities and it scares parents…. They're playing a game that encourages them to have sex with prostitutes and then murder them. You know, that's kind of hard to digest."

72. Gamespot Exclusive? Jun 7, 2005, 23:44 Xoxotl
 
According to Battlefield Nation (http://www.bfnation.net/), it seems that the demo may be releases exclusively on GameSpot's GameCenter service (available to GameSpot Complete subscribers). God, I hope note. I can't stand GameSpot.


EDIT: Grammer.

So why don't a few of you shut your pie holes and wait for some video/screenshots/demo of the game first before making such assanine comments.

Wow, you're one dedicated fanatical fanboy enthusiast.

10. Hope for the best... Jan 2, 2005, 16:53 Xoxotl
 
...but expect the worst.

The best SW games had to be Dark Forces II: Jedi Knight and Knights of the Old Republic, with the top place going to TIE Fighter. Everything else pretty much blows.

And don't get me started on Galaxies.

I sure hope this isn't Rebellion 2.

This is a big "screw you!" to those of us who actually purchased and registered GalCiv (without the expansion pack).

I did have Altarian Prophecy on my Christmas list, but I took it off, and asked my family, if they purchased it, to return it before Christmas. And I will not be purchasing GalCiv2.

Good job, Stardock! Keep trying harder to take a dump all over your established customer base!

Okay, maybe I'm missing something, but clicking on the link above about the "Spam King" leads me to a story about US/Japanese Beef Trading.

Does anybody have a link for the demo? When I try to download the demo from Gamespot (even after I log in), the stupid "Java" download link doesn't work.

God, I hate Gamespot.

Based on what I saw in the Demo... I'll pass on this one. If somebody wants to give it to me as a Christmas gift, fine, but I ain't buying it.

Pah.

But, hey, the original Deus Ex GotY Edition is being given away, free, on the latest Computer Gaming World CD-ROM. I'll just re-install that and have alot more fun with it.

Gameplay depth. Interesting concept, no?

155. Re: OMG! Nov 22, 2003, 22:54 Xoxotl
 
And gosh, I guess I missed the memo where every FPS game must have locational damage. Maybe it wasn't added so it wouldn't turn into a shoulders/head shot CS fest.

Lame explanation. The reason every other FPS has locational damage is because it greatly enhances the game. C'mon... this is 2003 for God's sake. If I walk up to somebody in DX:IW and put a burst of 9mm fire into the face and through their brain-pan with my Mako pistol, I expect them to die. Not whip out their own gun and return fire.

Right now, it appears that no matter where I place my shots, it's the same. And that's silly. Why should hits "right between the eyes" have the same effect as a burst into a enemy's re-enforced metal main body armor breastplate? (If they were wearing a helmet with an enclosed face shield, I can understand it.)

And, lord, you have no idea how much that "Unified Ammo" concept bugs me. It feels like a Xbox "shortcut" to make the game easier to play. In DX1, creeping around and looking for another clip of Traq Darts or one more Scramble Grenade was always an important part of the game. The part in DX1 where you managed to break into the MJ12/UNATCO armory and stock up on all the ammo you could carry felt like "a kid in a candy store". Now, with a "one-size-fits-all" ammo source, you don't have to worry about it anymore!

Again, I realize that this is supposed to be The Future, but it just seems so sloppy. Hell, it's almost 2004 and makers of personal electronics can't standardize on a battery size, much less anything else. It seems silly that after the post-apocalyptic "Collapse", all the major gun manufacturers will agree on some sort of super nano-ammo for their weapons.

126. What were they smoking? Nov 22, 2003, 18:12 Xoxotl
 
I won't get into a bitch-fest, but I'll say I was, ahem, disappointed by the demo.

But what really stands out:
  • No locational damage.

  • A uniform single ammo supply


  • I realize that this is supposed to be The Future, but it's a little hard to suspend disbelief when they're asking me to assume that the pistol, shotgun, flamethrower, and shock prod all have a common pool ammo source.
