Whenever you turn something in to a commodity, you'll always see people trying to produce or buy that commodity at rock bottom prices and sell it somewhere else for a profit. Whether that is by legitimate means or not, it always happens.

In regards to Mafia II, there is not a single valid excuse to pirate the game.

They released a demo well in advance of the game that gave you a very good feel for how the game was going to look and play. Hell, after playing it for two hours, I went out and pre-purchased it in full so I could pick it up on my way home tonight.

Syd is a troll. He's a troll for a simple fact that the gear/job he claims to have/be is utter bullshit. My dad recently stopped being restfully retired at 60 and set up this massive Pro Tools rig with hundreds of thousands of dollars in add-on software, racks, keyboards, pads, several workstations and a bunch of other things that I do not know enough about to describe accurately. What I do know is he spent a ton of money on it along with the studio. Within the last three weeks, he has contract work scheduled out until next July. He's already recouped the cost of his investment.

Being poor isn't an excuse to steal. Have some pride and self-control. Stand up and be a man, for fuck's sake.

Because, by then, the Russian mail order bride business will have totally collapsed.

I think it will be an awesome, but niche, game. I would like to see zero interactions with the "humans" in game. I would rather have them be an autonomous, sentient reactor to your changes as the god of their world.

Probably hoping for too much, however.

Ugh, let Digital Anvil stay in its grave.

Freelancer was fairly decent but Brute Force was total shit.

Its not like its an MMO where it matters,

Nothing you'll ever do in any MMO will ever matter. It's a time sink that you dump money and your life in to yet, when you die, nothing you'll have ever done in a virtual world will mean shit to the people around you.

I love being a fat, jobless, virgin, broke-ass loser who lives in my parent's basement.

It means that, unlike dear old BobBob here, I won't be dying from hostile natives, food poisoning, diphtheria or statistical mortality from traveling via air transit. What good is all that experience and social education when you're dying of an intestinal bacteria infection in a dirt hut in Tunisia?

On to BFG...I can't say I was ever really a fan. I've always used EVGA for third party cards when I didn't have cards directly from Nvidia in my systems to use.

They look very, very sexy. Here's to hoping they also release it for the 360.

There's only so many times I can play Final Liberation.

GTA4 now looks like complete shit...

GTA4 was complete shit. The Mafia guys showed how it should been done with the original and I hope that this series grows large enough so that it can take Rockstar on.

I'd love to see GTA4 sleep with the fishes in favor of more Mafia titles.

This little dick waving contest between Darks and RumpleForeSkin is truly disgraceful toward the branches of service they're claiming to have served in.

Can you guys knock it off already? I've known some decent Army folk and a couple of Marines that I'd call passably human.

Though, I do have to give Rumple credit for being correct that the Marines are, in point of fact, an adjunct attachment of the United States Navy. Though you'll never hear a squid, bubblehead or aviator claim it, they are.

Advocate if you ever figure out how to get sound in Syndicate Wars in the DOSBox please let me know how....

It just worked, I didn't have to do anything special.

I'm using Win 7 Pro x64 and the IDT audio chipset on board my system.

Hell yeah!

I went ahead and "found" Syndicate and Syndicate Wars so I could play them in DOSBox.

Advocate, if seen posts saying exactly the same fucking things about Rome. I remember how people were up in arms about the time period (booohooo, I never understood that complaint. I hope they continue to come up with a new one at least every second game) about bugs, the AI, performance, complexity, hard to mod, yadda yadda yadda.

The amount of whining is staggering. And it repeats itself for every single fucking game.

Yeah, the game's gonna be full of bugs, the AIs gonna be mediocre and the forums are full of people up in arms because it's not fucking Medieval3.

You know what? Medieval 1 had bugs, bugs, bugs, the AI became only acceptable with medmod, people hated the lack of Shoguns simplicity and, you know what, they were up in arms because it wasn't set in fscking Japan. And attention to detail? The first one had battlefield ninjas!

I grant you the difficulty of modding (otoh they promised mod-tools for every game and never delivered. Call it new found honesty) but otherwise your whole post is the ridiculous whining that plagues PC gaming.

None of which I mentioned at all in my original post. I made no mention of bugs, for example.

However, if you're so incredibly blind as to see that the Total War series has begun to degrade in the quality that made the series' name...then there's not a whole lot to discuss with you.

I guess you see the demise of a once great franchise as "whining". So be it, that's your opinion and you are welcome to it.

Dear CA,

I've been with you since the beginning. I loved every one of your games up until Empire. Then...then you started seeing someone new. They changed you, made you become games that I didn't recognize any more. Your once fine attention to detail began to slip and your unit controls became sloppy. You stopped being fun and started being grinding.

You started getting stuffy and uptight when people asked about mods. You grew irascible when old friends asked about their favorite time periods that you had visited before and if you had thought of returning to them again.

I guess this is goodbye. Maybe you'll go in to rehab and come out a better person. Best of luck to you.

Please God, let them buy Steam and run it in to the ground.

Also, God, while we're on the subject of miracles, can you then make publishers go to Impulse so we can have DRM free games again?

That would be awesome, thanks!
