Sounds dirty. I like it.

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.

It's about time they fixed the Hail Mary Pass bug.

It's kind of ridiculous that for some people, anything short of absolutely steamrolling the other team is enough to send them looking for another game.

Can anyone tell me a single hit turn-based action RPG to come out since Jagged Alliance 2 (which arguably wasn't even a hit?) These are my favorite style of game, and I can't think of a single one.

Silent Storm. It was all kinds of awesome, some years back.

Interesting. This almost looks like a Battlefront version of Hearts of Iron.

This demo is giving me some serious problems. It locks up when you zoom in too close to one of the Strykers in motion, and will randomly bug out and teleport all the vehicles into a corner where they attempt to drive off the map. Anyone else getting weirdness like this?

2. Re: No subject Dec 12, 2006, 00:02 ShakyJake
 
Jagged Alliance was an awesome series. Hopefully this one goes through, and doesn't have another false start as has happened before.

A 3D engine? I wonder how similar it'll be to Silent Storm, which was another great game that had awesome potential, but just never seemed to go anywhere.
