Congrats Ubi. I'll never buy another game from you, and no, I won't buy the console version either.

News Comments > Return to Ostagar Delays Explained
3. Re: Return to Ostagar Delays Explained Jan 20, 2010, 15:21 Tomas
 
Heh, funny, but I have to admit I understand what he's saying. The more complex a project the more difficult it becomes to really find all the bugs. Even the smallest changes can cause all sorts of weird little things to crop up that are often pretty hard to find with even a decent sized test team. Though on the flip side I heard the one major broken bit was that all the specialty classes weren't working...which seems like something pretty noticeable. I guess if they *seemed* to be working but weren't actually having any effect (the abilities etc) then that would be kind of understandable.

Ah well, I won't buy DLC either way. =) Here's to hoping that the expansion is a legit full expansion and not some gimmicky money grab.

4. Re: that salary is not bad Jan 19, 2010, 13:47 Tomas
 
It's not bad until you consider the hours you are required to work per week (even excluding months of "crunch time") at most studios. Don't get me wrong, it CAN be worth it, but in the end there are a lot of jobs that pay better and will offer you a lot more in regards to a healthy work environment.

But if you're single and love games...it's not too bad.

MW2 total sales - 16 or so since they just alienated my LAN group.

What's up with PC game companies turning into dicks these days?

News Comments > Majesty 2: The Fantasy Kingdom Sim Demo
6. Re: Majesty 2 Demo Sep 15, 2009, 16:32 Tomas
 
It's not so much that you're supposed to lose as it is just amazingly difficult. If you didn't play the first majesty (and were good at it) then you probably won't be able to finish that second level. It's designed to kick your butt. Some of us though have finished it.

Oh, and if you want to cheat you can too. The save game files are easily edited if you're having too much trouble but want to see some more stuff.

I actually wish there was one more level though...it's a most likely buy for me at this point. I absolutely loved the first one.

News Comments > EA Sues over Godfather Guns
11. Re: EA Sues over Godfather Guns Sep 2, 2009, 18:40 Tomas
 
Gotta put my support behind EA on this one as well. Hate 'em for what they do, not for them having to deal with broken laws.

Maybe someone should try to trademark Hitler sometime. I bet you'd make a lot of money off that one too, of course that would ruin all the documentaries that I like to watch so if any of you do it I'll pull a Dillinge...err, I'll use my untrademarked gun and fill you full of untrademarked bullets.

I too loved the first one and the expansion but am just unsure about this one. I'm hoping it's great, and I'd love to preorder it...but for some reason I feel like it's a huge risk.

News Comments > LucasArts Classic Rereleases
52. Re: LucasArts Classic Rereleases Jul 6, 2009, 17:42 Tomas
 
Personally I'd say if all they are doing is dosboxing them they should be about 3 bucks a piece. If that were the case I'd buy some of the ones I don't own or the ones I've lost over the years. More than that and it's really not that great of a deal. It's kind of a cool announcement, but really, I own most of these and have already played them so...

News Comments > No StarCraft II LAN Confirmed
36. Re: No StarCraft II LAN Confirmed Jun 29, 2009, 17:07 Tomas
 
I'm sure it won't effect their bottom line much but I just went from a maybe buy to a no buy. I'm not a huge SC fan (I know there must be something wrong with me...I'm a WC2 fan) but I'm sure this is going to happen to Diablo 3 as well which is what really bothers me. My friends and I have been lanning on the weekends for at least a decade so this type of thing affects us in a big way. I suppose if they released a single player only version for half price I might buy it. But there's no way I'm buying it in the current offering.

News Comments > APB Interview
2. Re: APB Interview Jun 3, 2009, 18:16 Tomas
 
Yeah, I've been really interested in this since I first heard about it. I wasn't aware of the 100 players thing, but now that I read the interview it makes sense and I can still see a lot of room for some pretty great mechanics and amazing gameplay. I've said it before, but I'm going to say it again: I'm really hoping this game is half as good as I think it could be. =)

News Comments > On ARMA II Bugs
27. Re: On ARMA II Bugs May 29, 2009, 01:24 Tomas
 
Seems like they had a hard release date.

I think you hit the nail on the head. I'm betting they had a hard budget or release date and their design had bitten off more than they could manage in that constraint. It's not by any means uncommon, but the good news is that they've shown in the past that they don't drop their support like many developers/publishers once the product hits the street. It does suck though...I agree with the comment about them needing to pull off a more or less solid release with ARMA 2 to really develop the cred that they needed. This will only hurt sales and future investment capital. However, again, I hope they do well enough and make enough sales to try again for ARMA 3. Hopefully at that point they'll be a bit more capable of pulling a game development in under budget/time constraint. It's hard...but they need to really tighten things up.

WoT multiplayer was actually kind of fun - granted I only played the free demo, but it was pretty cool how there were so many counters and other fun "pickups" in it. I'm not sure how the singleplayer was.

22. Re: Thief 4 Reveal Next Week? May 4, 2009, 22:42 Tomas
 
Thief 3 would definitely have benefited from being in a city the size of those in Assassin's Creed. Some sort of hybrid between the two could really be amazing. But yeah, not enough info here yet to make a proper evaluation of what T4 will be.

Sweet. I was a big proponent of RO:Ost so I'm happy to see they are sticking with that for game 2. Now I have to go find a copy of that mag...

BTW, the video seems to be working again. I have to admit, if I had an iphone I'd probably want to have this too. I loved the AH. =)

Hmm, maybe I'm just wrong, but haven't people been doing this for a couple of years now? I guess maybe not with a "proper" client, but this isn't the first case of someone using the iphone for logging in and "playing" WoW.

If I misunderstood I apologize. I do tend to scan things rather quickly when I only have a superficial interest in them. I've long since given up on WoW. Rest in peace my lvl 70 undead rogue.

What does it have to do with being authorized? If I have a PC game and play it on a mac is that wrong? I mean other than the fact that I'm using a mac? Maybe there's some weird thing in their EULA or something but it seems odd that anyone would care at all. I'd imagine they'd be elated to have more people playing their game more of the time.
