News Comments > A Game Of Thrones - Genesis Website
9. Re: A Game Of Thrones - Genesis Website May 13, 2011, 02:28 ShakyJake
 
I have a few friends who I've never been able to badger into reading the books, but who I've gotten to watch the HBO series. They are completely lost, they tell me. Too much going on, and no explanation into why the politics work out they way they do, which in the series is largely dependent on the previous generation, and largely explained as you read through the books. It made me realize that the series really is just porn for us people who have read the books and know what's going on, and don't have to rely on spoken dialogue alone to take in all the history that leads into the series.

News Comments > Ships Ahoy - HOARD
6. Re: Ships Ahoy - HOARD Apr 5, 2011, 05:57 ShakyJake
 
It only fixes the problem if you had a conflict with the demo being installed, from what I've read. Unfortunately, there's a serious issue with the 4-pack. The 4-pack and the regular version of the game each have a separate app ID, and right now the 4-pack isn't activated. It also shows up as "Hoard" in the library instead of "HOARD" in all-caps like it does for the people who bought the non 4-pack version. Very frustrating, as we were looking forward to playing together on release day...

It's too bad that it won't still be a Q1 release like I'd read last year, but I'm hoping it's still not too far off.

If they bring back throttle and true joystick support, I'll be more than happy.

Anybody else miss the times where helicopters in games took some real skill to use? Feels like they've went overboard with dumbing down the controls so that anybody could do it with little or no practice.

So the narrator in that video apparently believes the Vietnam war took place as long as 60 years ago?

I'd really like to see a new Fall from Heaven mod for this game, though some of the abstractions made in the new game might not lend itself too well to the mod.

Agreed. These new themes of theirs just don't have the same feel as their WWII games. And I'm still waiting on a Pacific theater version of Combat Mission. After Afrika Korps, I was really expecting that instead of Shock Force.

Hopefully the game will have a realistic penetration model, and not just hit points for tanks. The tank warfare part of WWIIOL was by far the most appealing to me while I was playing it.

Great game and an excellent mod, but I remember there being very few games running at any time by the time I stopped playing.

Did WaW not have a comparable level of gore already? Maybe it wasn't noticeable when using only rifles and submachineguns, but I seem to recall taking arms and legs off of Japs when using the trench gun.

MoW? What game is this, you're talking about? I've been looking for a good tank simulation ever since I came to realize that WWII Online just couldn't produce a good armored battle, anymore.

News Comments > WAR & DAOC Billing Errors
3. Re: WAR & DAOC Billing Errors Apr 9, 2010, 08:02 ShakyJake
 
Freaking out a little bit, here, but I got off lucky I suppose. I was only charged three times. Some people on the forums are claiming they were charged their $16 subscription fee over twenty times, for over three hundred dollars total. I'm going to have to wait and see if they make good on these refunds. My bank has a history of not being very sympathetic towards these kinds of screwups, which right now has me thinking why I'm still bothering with either of them.

Not allowing preloading was a bad idea. I've been stuck with, "The steam Servers are currently too busy to process your request. Please try again in a few minutes" for almost two hours now, no doubt because of bandwidth bottlenecks. And so I can't even begin the download which I've been told takes a few hours as it is. Seems like some of the game features aren't the only thing to have taken a step backwards with this release.

This looks pretty interesting. The tank warfare component to WWII Online was always my favorite, but the limited population and vehicles numbers in that game meant you never had truly large-scale battles. This might just improve on that, though we'll have to wait and see.

Wow, that kind of screws those of us who live out in the country, where cable isn't available. I'm a huge Silent Hunter fan, and the other days' news of Silent Hunter 5 was the best I've had in a while, but this means I'll have to be dialed up on my 56k to play? Gahh. No way.

Good stuff all around. The fixes for the texture hacks, particularly. More and more, it was becoming obvious when people had those running on a map.
