News Comments > Entrenchment Delay
4. Re: Entrenchment Delay Feb 9, 2009, 19:34 D4rkKnight
 
I'm not touching this game again until they complete all three of these micro-expansions. So far the first ones taking longer then a retail expansion, so I think it will be around 2011 when they are all finished.

No hard feelings towards Stardock, I just hate the idea of playing a turtle expansion without the diplomacy and other expansion to go with it...its going to be a veeeery long time before I play this game again. The games take too long for me to justify playing it now knowing in the end it will have triple the content. I want to still care about this when it's all completed.

Quake was number 8 on the list . I can understand C&C because it had the critical success behind it that drove others to immitate. It should not just be about the innovation but also it's success in the marketplace, because that is a major factor in future game development.

I also don't like the Sims at #2, I could see it in the 20-11 crowd but not here. Its really only spawned influence at EA, where they churn out hundreds of expacks for it. In the gaming market as a whole you don't see many Sims like games.

Oh it will have a simple launchable .exe within a week of its release, if not before...count on it.

"historical construction" Thats an odd description, its a medieval RTS. Constructing the castles is one aspect, destroying them an entirely different one.

All of these games sound like shit. Yeah it sucks that they closed Ensemble but with games like this there wasn't much to look forward to.

They aren't great story tellers, they are great game designers. Their writers are just average.

Too little too late. Where was the free trial when people actually cared?

Microsoft does, they tested it for a whole week before releasing it according to R*. In fact we have to wait for every patch to be "tested" by MS before its released, and it's clear they take their time.

The multiplayer has random bugs: when returning to the lobby from a game its sometimes impossible to start a new game, forcing a server shutdown.

The game randomly crashes after playing for awhile, it seems the more you play multiplayer the more unstable it gets.

When you spectate a game in progress the framerates drop to like 5fps and you get kicked for "Running to slow"

This is after playing for a few hours, I'm sure theres more issues.

I would agree about HL2, not HL1 though.

I can't believe R* sold out to Microsoft LIVE...they should have known from Microsoft's past record what this would mean, and they got exactly what was expected in the end. Well, props to Microsoft for proving to the PC crowd that they are incompetent of providing a simple installation and application of LIVE (again), and to R* for piling on more requirements and of course all that DRM. All this and bugs + performance issues, I'm so glad I wasn't able to purchase this game.

I only liked San Andreas and only because of online servers with 100+ players playing cops and robbers.. I never really played the actual game.

Loved the old top down ones as a kid though, annoying as shit with the pop-up but oh so fun. I remember the Speed mission, you had to keep the bus at top speeds or the bomb goes off...it was almost impossible in that game.

I went to Best Buy and they had it in stock (In the back room), but they wouldn't sell it to me, told me they weren't allowed to until tomorrow. I told him todays the release date and he said he cant sell it because he could get in trouble...kind of ridiculous so I think I'll buy it somewhere else tomorrow (Only had time to check BB today).

Well I see 100/125 on CB's Cops and robbers server 1 as I write this:

Theres like 50 other servers out there as well but that one was always my favorite.

Not sure if this is the same multiplayer app but if its not then this one is leagues ahead of MTA.

qStorm of Zehir hearkens back to the days of the Baldur’s Gate and Icewind Dale franchises by including full party customization, dungeon crawling, and free exploration of a non-linear game world via Overland Map."]

It took them 8 years to realize this formula actually works?

Welcome to MMoRPG's...they don't sell fun, they sell online interaction. People will pay dearly to talk and interact with others in an online game.

This is something that would be released as a free patch from most other PC dev's. Not that anyone is surprised by this...
