Yes freespace 3 that's what we need. No point & click mouse space sims. I would even take a remake of wing comander 2 made with a modern graphics engine.

****** turn back the rest is just me ranting about stuff you all know*******************

We need to find a way for modders to get financed like small studios in the music industry. Maybe then will we get back to having some variety & originality in games.
Combined with some marketing, alot of genres could make come backs. The only time you see comercials on the PC side is when there is a console version coming out yet devs complain about sales lol.

Even mom & pop PC stores know how to form a consortium or coop where diff comapnies put their assets together in orther maximise their exposure. SO how come these game devs can't get together & buy some air time to show adds?!?!

22. Re: No subject Apr 9, 2005, 23:41 4D-Boxing
If i get this right with a steam only release we have to pay by credit card?! Valve should have done a servey to see how many HL2 owners have credit cards. To make things worst alot of parents don't like the idea of giving out credit card# for anything internet related. Anyways threw out my credit cards a years ago, that means no boxed version no purchase.

The details are not out yet so I wont jump to conclusion & assume that I will be able to buy it at EB or get it free using steam only.

That's what happens when you insult your clients! I mean what was the guy thinking? Before this entire thing started I was looking forward to his work but then out of the blue the guys shows up on message boads & starts insulting gamers & potential clients. Would you go buy a car from a a salesman who calls you an idiot before you even walk through the door?

The guy brought all this onto himself. Look at all the EA & UBI bashing that's been going on... you don't the guy from those companies in here trading insults with people!

So to amswer you question... Can't we have any intelligent discussion?

No, Derek himself took this discussion in the gutter & there it will stay!

After What these guys did to Deus EX & Thief... Well I'm not surprised! People are out of work & that sucks. They destroyed 2 great PC games & it was reflected in the sales figure. Let's hope other developers learn something from this.

I wish i could say i feel bad but hey glowing stuff in thief, 3rd person view & a dumbed down Deus Ex makes me not give a $*#@

I hated FPS until R6 & HL came out back in 1998/99. Sad to see R6 franchise going down the drain. After what happened to Raven shield, I imagine that most gamers on the PC side will skip this & go for Swat4.

Best of luck to the people at 3DGamers! Gamespy/IGN ouch... but smart move the guys at 3DGamers deserve a big payday after all they've done for gamers (free downloads & no registration). I hope things stay the same if not well another site will pick up where they left off Kind of like how Blue became my #1 news site after voodooextreme went IGN.

Thanks Dagok & Protoz for the solution. Zathrus nice try & thanks but, you just said what I implied before.... I have a feeling the prob is on ICQ's side but anyways.

I will give Trillian a try. I could have switched to a diff instant messenger like MSN or yahoo years ago if I did not mean having to teach my parents & grand parents how to use something new.

Well i guess i'll have to go back to IE also. No one seems to have found a work arround for that simple url forwarding thing in ICQ....getting sick of doing the old cut & past thing again since making the switch.

That mean installing norton again to get a good pop up/ ad blocker

Tried them all & except the one that comes with firefox the norton one is best for me .

Is their a way to make the forward link fonction in ICQ with Firefox? I have a feeling the prob is on ICQ's side but anyways. Maybe you can use that great machine on epsilon 3 to find a way to make it work

Had a few operation has timed out messages from firefox when trying to open certain sites but that's nothing. Probably just old links that need to be updated.

AH well, after checking out the link & reading the description...I have to agree with BIGtrouble77.

Money for a bigger entourage & bling WTF! IT's like NFS underground & those snowborad games.... I'm not in it to dress up my character in fresh new clothes focus on the sport & forget about the bling & maybe you'll get a few sales!

Didn't they learn from the mistakes of others?

I would not bet on it! The past few years, to many companies have been making the same mistake. Like I've said in the past a company could release something good just by reading what people have to say in this meessage board.

People don't want their favorite games dumbed down. They want them expanded.

Well said! Every game site or pc gaming site should have that posted in huge letters. Maybe then MS, EA, UBI & the rest will wake up and do things right, but i bet they just use the easy way out and say the games don't sell cause of piracy or a slumping pc market (all B.S. good games have no problemes selling ...HL2, WOW..)

Anyways at least the mod community is healthy so their is hope that a few groups won't completely sell out to the big boys & try to become the new industry leaders.

it's just a little embarrassing to be freakishly Cash diet thin to begin with

I know the feeling. People used to tell me wait t'ill you hit college you'll gain weight then people said when you turn 25 then 30 wel passed all those stages and i still can't pack on the pounds but my roomates who used to pig out with me & play NFS back in the days we not so lucky.

Even did the super size me diet back in 93 & did not do a thing to me....then again i might have a McDonalds time bomb waiting to go off in my body somewhere

Anyways Happy New years to all & thanks Bleu for another great year and a great site.

4. Re: PC? Dec 24, 2004, 11:09 4D-Boxing
UBI went out of it's way to destroy the PC version so I would not expect much from this title. UBI will probably say that the sales of Rainbow6 3 where low on the PC so they will evaluate things blah blah blah...

Well UBI, you destryed one of the best FPS on the PC & you expect high sales figures.. dream on! Keep your crap & stick to the Xbox. UBI's crap does not stand a chance of selling on the PC. Epic dropped the ball on ut2k3 but made up for the mistake by releasing ut2k4 & a crazy amount of free stuff plus superb community support. UBI gave us the Athena expansion & tried to make us pay for it & the base game was a buggy mess! Nice strategy UBI, don't you dare cry about poor sales.

I bet they never even release that SDK for R6 or released it so late that the community gave up on the game!

Corporate suicide by UBI & imcompetance at it's best!

4. Re: Red Menace Dec 10, 2004, 17:30 4D-Boxing
Not trying to take sides or troll but one countries terrorist is anothers hero, one countries masacre is another countries great military victory.

Some dictionaries define a terrorist as someone who uses violence to force social or political change. So Nelson Mandela or Anyone who has ever fought for their independance, freedom or democracy could be classified as a terrorist.

Sorry but terrorism has been arround since the beginning of time, colonial forces terrorised natives of countless nation, slave traders did the same, anyone who has ever invaded another land for financial, strategic or political reasons can be called a terrorist. It all depends what side of the fence you are on.

All i'm trying to say, is that things are not always black & white. Jumping to conclusions using half the info or one sides info does not make anyone intelligent or an ignoramus. Since we would need to have the highest of security clearance to know the truth about anything these days, I would take any political facts with a grain of salt. Don't forget countries now say that they will do anything to protect themselves and that does not exclude lying, dramatizing, exagerating & spinning the truth.

Look at the rainbow worrior incident, French agents placed a bomb on a green peace boat, cause green peace was against French nuclear tests. Well those terrorist blew up the boat & when New Zealand tried to keep the terrorist in jail no one including Australia, US, Canada stepped up to make sure justice was served. Frence put sanctions against New Zealand exports, crippling the economy...They turned to the worlds super powers and no one did anything so they had to release the terrorist to save their economy.

Enjoy the spelling & grammar mistakes..added a few to keep things interesting lol!!

Anyways this is a gaming site i'll let life teach you the rest.

companies should forget about the warnings & just impose a life time ban on hackers. They can put one warning on the box & in the EULA and that's it. No warning before banning just a message after it's done.

Well done Blizzard!

Xero.... good to see another boxing fan in here! Manny vs Barrera 2 should be a great fight!

I'm the same way when it comes to gamepads..never got used to them. I do have one of those $20 belkin dual stick pads for FIFA & NBA live. As for Racing games, nothing beats a wheel or an old fashion joystick.

Anyways from what I've read online, some people do not want to buy any sticks, pads or wheels just because they feel it's to childish to own gaming peripherals & even worst to have them exposed next to their PCs. ( think i read that in a review of a collapsable stick.)

I do not agree with that attitude... I'm over 30 & would rather play a good game then watch reality TV or what ever is on nowdays.
