This has been talked about here a bit... Gamecock is sort of a joke name. They are a new kind of publisher that wants to not draw attention to themselves in the way publishers like EA do. They want the comsumers to see the developers name, and gamecock is so ridiculous no one would ever put that in bold lettering on the box. Kind of a symbolic name.

With that said, they are drawing a lot of attention to themselves, but in a good way I think. Now we just have to wait and see if they release any good games.

I just got a DS and I haven't had so much fun playing a console in as long as I can remember. I only like playing strat games and some mmorpg's so the pc is enough for me. Although, I would like to play oblivion with perfect framerates on the 360. The ps3 is a train wreck. I don't know anyone that has one or wants one.

News Comments > X-COM to Return?
7. Re: No subject Feb 17, 2007, 20:22 BIGtrouble77
 
The only good x-com games were the first two, the rest blew. To be honest, I didn't care much for the second's subject matter, but it still had the killer gameplay.

Why the hell are these game companies trying to reinvent the wheel with x-com (and clones) rather than using the original model and extending it?

What a way to not answer the question. Well, I guess he's just saying that they picked a ridiculous name to convince developers that they would never think of trumping them by putting Gamecocks in big bold lettering on the packages like most publishers would.

It's a funny idea, not so sure how well it will work, tho. I'll be keeping my eye out... curious to see where this goes.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gamecock

"Gamecock is sometimes used as a nickname for people who are considered fierce fighters. During the American Revolution, General Thomas Sumter earned the nickname in his battle against the English forces in South Carolina."

With that said, who the hell could name a company gamecock?

Why are they re-releasing this? They should have taken the time to port this to the Wii instead- they would have made a killing.

News Comments > NHL Eastside Hockey Manager 2007 Patched, Series on Ice
23. Re: No subject Jan 31, 2007, 20:07 BIGtrouble77
 
I'm a little frustrated by sigames posting that crap. I bought the version before this one and mildly liked it. The DRM was a complete pita. Like other mentioned, it was not easy if you didn't know how to manipulate the game properly- and when I say game I mean I don't mean hockey, I mean eastside's hockey universe.

So I wanted to give this version a shot and snagged it from a torrent. The only torrent out there is the demo with a crack that doesn't work. I never even bothered to install it. Whenever I did get around to it, if I actually liked the game I would have bought it, but used a cracked version because the DRM is atrocious. Just because people download torrents don't mean they intend to pirate the games they would have otherwise bought.

I can't believe patches are still coming out for this game. I bought this ages ago. I had a great time playing until my empire got too large. I took all of the UK and spain/portugal. Dealing with revolts just took the fun out of everything. I was able to maintain the empire but I could not expand.

I'll proly give it another shot and see if those issues are ironed out. The best part of this game is the fact that you control your family, so you go through many leaders. Your king and sons fight in battles and get old. You also have to make sure you have kids and marry off the daughters. It's so cool when you inherit an empire that way.

Beware game is starforce infected I think. It's got something nasty that deletes daemon tools.

This game looks like it'll be a blast. Nothing can touch a nice pc strat game.

This is a little off topic, but have any of you gotten screwed in WoW subscription fees? I'm disputing some charges and Blizzard is being shockingly arrogant. They have a policy of never refunding subscription fees even if the subscription was inappropriately activated by Blizzard. All they'll offer me is $140 at the Blizzard store or to transfer the credit to another account. They've acknowleged the problem but refuse to refund my money. I'm blown away.

I've been calling gamestops today trying to get a Wii. No one has them, but almost all of them have PS3's. This is most definitely not a repeat of the last generation console wars.

If the PS3 was $299 I'd buy one, but $600 is just insane. I'll prolly just snag a Wii and mod an xbox360 when ms gets around to shrinking the die next year.

This is the way most PS3 auctions are ending on ebay:
http://cgi.ebay.com/Sony-PS3-60GB-game-console-New-In-Box-100-feedback_W0QQitemZ110071571965QQihZ001QQcategoryZ62054QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

Too many people bought them to sell on ebay. They created an artificial demand. It has most definitely stabilized, in fact it looks like they are going to have an over supply after the holidays are over.

Enahs,
I've been running games at 1920x1200 on my laptop for a year now.... In linux no less. Even strategy games like CivIV look like nextgen xbox360/ps3 titles.

8 years of gaming at that res is not true, but it has definitely been possible for the past 2 years.

I'll also note that the graphics are very fun for a game of this type. Kinda has that living board game feel, and it looks absolutely gorgeous at 1920x1200. It's one of those games that really won't age over time.

I don't think the screenshot looks so bad, but has there ever been a female Jaffa?

I don't understand why the developers of the stargate mmo are blogging so much being that the project just started several months ago.

Now SCI-FI can replace that time slot with another wrestling show.
I'm so pissed scifi is abandoning their loyal fan base for the inbreds that watch pro wrestling.

A stargate mmorpg could be a great success, but I doubt most developers could do it justice.
