....and the people who've never even played L4D come out in full force to hate on the sequel! Even though they never had any reason to care in the first place since they've never played the original! Awesome.

You're missing the point. Our problem isn't with the sequel necessarily, it's with the fact that they are tacitly abandoning the first game with all its problems (e.g. matchmaking). Also I haven't seen any negative posts here that indicate the poster has not at least played the L4D demo, if not the full game.

The least they could have done was fix the matchmaking before announcing this. 7+ months on and it still tries to put you on full or broken servers, there's still no pre-made team matching, some lobbies and servers never fill, and you can't open friends games up to the public if someone has to leave. This is an amateur move from a company I least expected to pull such a move.

This would be worth it if the economic aspect was deep enough, but somehow I suspect this is just a glorified friends list.

They did fix it, it was a server-side fix.

I got a cheap Sandman kill on Robin Walker tonight. Then he threw a jar of piss on me. He's a showoff, he had all the hats...

I'm not much of an RTS player so I wanted a demo to experience the pace of the game. Now I'm just not interested in even trying a demo...

Oh and good job totally derailing the thread, idiots.

Here is the actual quote from the article that I'm sure nobody here or at LinuxToday bothered to read:

Veghte said, “If you’re just starting your testing of Vista, with the [Windows 7] Release Candidate and the quality of that offering, I would switch over and do your testing on the [Windows 7] Release Candidate, and use that going forward.”

This quote was aimed at enterprise IT managers, testing out operating systems in their company. Of course it makes sense to start testing Win7 now in an enterprise environment instead of using Vista which will just be obsolete soon. But of course sense doesn't stop Linux zealots from saying OMG M$ HATES THEIR OWN PRODUCT ROFL and feeling a sense of smug superiority. I'm no Microsoft apologist but I think Linux zealots are even dumber than Mac zealots.

complete.utter.bollocks. Did you skip your meds today?

I hate to say it but Derek's got a (poorly elucidated) point. 3D Realms owes us nothing. It's not their fault people invested so much emotion into a game that had so few details surrounding it. Anyone who actually entertained the thought of this game coming out after the "media blackout" was foolish.

No kidding. I picked up HoMM2 for $2 at Salvation Army, there's no way I'm paying 3x that for its predecessor.

Comic book movies are just the old Rambo-type movies with a thick coating of nonsense pop philosophy, and all the proles eat it up and call it deep. Whatever.

Daikatana was made by Ion Storm, not 3d Realms. At least Daikatana was actually released, made money, and developed in only 3 years, not 13. Hell, 3 years is actually a short amount of time compared to today's games. I can't imagine wasting 17% of my life (assuming one lives to ~75) on something that will never come to fruition.

He meant "Daikatana-type" stories. That missing hyphen threw me off as well...

Making History Gold is a decent WW2 grand strategy game. Definitely worth $10 IMO. The original edition got 6 of 8 on Out of Eight but some of the problems have been fixed in the Gold edition (i.e. you can play as any nation, the AI is better all around, you can start in 1933)

The matchmaking needs improvement, but I have had no problems with the official servers in months. The only time I have server problems is when I end up on unofficial servers. One such server I joined had too few slots for versus, and the survivors were instantly demolished by about 40 AI Hunters. But, I usually end up on Valve's official servers and I have no problems with them. I suppose it helps that I'm about 30 miles from the server farm... I imagine I'd be telling a different story if I was in Europe or Aus/NZ.
