I don't think I'll ever play it on PS3 again...but despite my disdain for Rockstar, I am tempted to get GTAV on PC and will likely crumble when the release date rolls around.

Just get that shit through alternate means. Don't fall for Rockstar's double and triple dipping nonsense.

But the whole point would be to pick up where I left off with the Online game. As they have said that your online toon will carry over to PC/PS4/xbone for those that want it. And whenever Heists do finally come out, I'll be playing it on PC with others.

If all I cared about was playing the single player again, I'd just do that on PS3.

Wishing there was a mouse/keyboard with analog buttons...for driving.

Yeah, I ran across that article a few months back. All the url's for mod files are 404's After all, the article is 4 years old...

And if you Google search those mod names, you can easily still find them.

I don't own X-Wing Alliance or I might try this out. But I'm guessing you don't get all the story stuff doing it this way, just the missions.

People are probably busy, presumably like you since you weren't volunteering that information for them either.

Because I don't blindly buy old shit off GOG hoping that it works properly. See my last post. If you already have the Collectors Series CDs, this GOG release is a waste of money and isn't even the newest version of those games.

Reposting this as I edited my last post.

Just came across this this guide here to get the Collectors Series CDs installed on Win7 64bit systems.

I just went through the instructions for installing Tie Fighter and it worked without issue. So if you own the Collectors Series CDs, you are better off installing that than buying the GOG low res release.

seems like the answers are on gog forums

[url=http://www.gog.com/forum/general/release_star_wars_tie_fighter_special_edition/page7[/url]

looks like you can either run it in dos mode (320x200) or windows 95 mode which uses xwing vs tie fighter engine that takes away more than it gives, mainly dynamic music and messes up the physics for the sake of multiplayer balance - even though this is single player.

people are clamoring for the 95 collectors cd edition that's not part of the release.

In 1995, TIE Fighter also received a Collector's CD-ROM. The CD-ROM version offered optional enhanced SVGA graphics, increasing the game's resolution from 320x200 to 640x480.[2] The cinematic cutscenes were also enhanced, and the game received numerous voiceovers. The CD-ROM includes the previously released Defender of the Empire expansion and an additional Enemies of the Empire expansion.


Yea I own the Collectors Series and it won't install. And seeing as what is on GOG is the older, lower res version...I'll be passing on this.

Just came across this guide here to get the Collectors Series installed. I haven't tried it yet. But might be worth a look for some.

OMG you guys are pathetic. I didn't even say anything bad about the games and you are immediately getting into defensive fanboy mode.

Peoples nostalgia over how the original games means nothing to me. As my nostalgia over the games would mean nothing to you.

I want to know how the current releases function and how they look and at what resolutions are available...among other issues, features, etc.

Guess I'll just go get my answers from another forum where people don't have giant sticks shoved up their ass.

does it use player hosted or instanced servers for multiplayer?

Both. They are hosted. And you can open private instanced games (that are still hosted).

Other then the increase to 30 people online there's nothing about online. All this nice new shiny stuff is single player, always shown as single player. What's getting implemented online is going to be the deciding factor for me. Otherwise I'll wait for the price to drop.

GTA in multiplayer have always been a car crash (literally) ... GTA is just about the SP ... only reason to play them!

Yeah, not anymore. MP in GTA5 is a blast.

Indeed. But where are the Heists? It's been over a year now and a majory advertised selling point of the game has still not been released. But people are suing Sega over advertised graphics in ACM.

It's unacceptable. As is how poorly they handled the launch of Online, with all the cheating, failed events (on PS3), etc. I gave up after I think the 4th patch that attempted and failed to do anything about cheaters and the Beach Bum pack that the new missions didn't work for about the first week after release. Beach Bum event weekend was also broken on the PS3 and never happened.

With all that said, I don't know what it's like now, because I haven't played it in 10 months. Heists are still missing, but we know that.

I don't think I'll ever play it on PS3 again...but despite my disdain for Rockstar, I am tempted to get GTAV on PC and will likely crumble when the release date rolls around.

So 51 posts and not one of you has bought these new versions and posted impressions. Just a whole lotta yammering about nostalgia.


I'm at work... so all I can do is go on wookieepedia and post about Keyan Farlander and Maarek Stele fun nostaglia facts and twiddle my thumbs until I get home.


If he doesn't like the posts, he's welcome to leave.

And yeah, some of us have day jobs. He should try it.


Not everyone works the same days, at the same times, and not everyone is in the same time-zones, you loud mouthed dipshit. But clearly you still like to continue posting shit about people while hiding behind the ignore function.

51 posts and no impressions...clearly nobody is buying this, yet. Being midday has never stopped anyone from posting impressions almost immediately before.

I've seen this headline like 3 or 4 times since this afternoon. And it is misleading.

He is in negotiations, yes, but has not been signed. It's all contingent upon the Sherlock production adjusting their entire schedule to accommodate the filming of Doctor Strange.

I'm not sure why women think he is good looking, but whatever, I'm not female. To me he looks kinda creepy, like in a Patrick Bateman American Psycho kinda way.

If this was HD upgraded versions of the games, I'd be all over them.
We'll see how these look and at what resolutions after they are released.

One thing I've learned of my purchases of old games...I don't play them, or maybe for an hour when I first get them, but that's about it. Dungeon Keeper 2 being the exception.

I bought the first one on PS3 after all the hype about it. Personally I found the voices extremely annoying and the gameplay was rather boring and repetitive.

More i play the game (non demo) more i like it. I think its just switching my Civ5 perspective to the subtle changes. That said those subtle changes once you get use to them are pretty good. Enjoying it, and i know it'll only get better. One of the major reasons why i bought it is that i know that the expansions, patches, and mods to come will only add to it. Firaxis knows their TBS

This.

From what I've been reading on forums, the game isn't that worth buying if you were expecting something much different from Civ 5. A shame, I'll wait for the inevitable GOTY edition.

Huh, on the gaming podcast I listen to they said, "If you're expecting this to be like Civ 5, you'll be disappointed."

Well, TotalBiscuit seems to have my opinion. Either way I'm not entirely convinced this is worth the asking price right now.

So you share his contradictory opinions?

He basically likes the game, and says so repeatedly. But then he sums it up at the end saying he doesn't like it that much because it's not Civ5 and it's not Alpha Centauri.

21. Re: Bah! Oct 21, 2014, 16:22 Krovven
 
You can turn on Quick Combat for no animations as well as Movement, to make turns go faster. Quick Game settings...and I get some people really want to do the Huge maps with large number of civs, and while I have played those...I prefer smaller (faster) games. 1v1 up to 5v5 or so. The Duels are fun and is a good way to quickly get through some games going for different victories to learn how things can play out.

Agreed that vanilla Civ V was rather weak. The expansions really made it a great game (particularly the G&K xpac). While I had played Civ 3 and Civ IV very briefly I could never get into them. Playing PBEM games of Civ V is what really got me into it and I ended up playing the game far far more, even solo, than I ever expected.

I can't wait for Beyond Earth. Here's to another 600hrs over the next 3+ years...
