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.

My condolences as well.

I agree with nin, take as much time as you need to. We'll all be here when you get back...and I am sure there are plenty more of my posts you can remove then.

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!

Oh my my, oh Hell yes. Honey put on that party dress.

"Last Dance with Mary Jane" always reminded me of American McGee's Alice for some reason.

News Comments > Star Ruler Interview
4. Re: Star Ruler Interview Jul 19, 2010, 09:04 Burrito of Peace
 
From the two (very small) Youtube videos that are in the "Media" section of the website, it appears that the game's design theme is scale, scale and more scale.

Which is rather disappointing. In a way, it reminds me of a line from the Borderlands behind-the-scenes videos where Claptrap says "You may have heard that we have like a million bajiliion guns..."

The one thing that GalCiv2, SoSE and SotS got right, and I think they actually got it from the Homeworld franchise, was that I could have multiple fleets but they were all damn important, representing a significant cost of investment in time and resources not to mention the secondary investments of technology and the time and resources that went in to researching them. That made me care about their placements, their dispositions and made me critically think about their best use.

Giving me a million bajillion ships spanning thousands of solar systems tells me that I am eventually going to end up playing Excel as the Galactic Bean Counter and Logistics Officer.

Also, after reading the interview, I was left very much with the impression that this was intended to be title that was be everything to everyone. We know how poorly those titles have turned out in the past. No part excels and the whole is, at best, frustratingly average.

I wish you the best of luck, however. Also, eRe4s3r, if anything this will give you valuable real world experience to put in a portfolio and on a resume.

Metro 2033 is only 12.50 in that sale. I picked it up during the steam sale for 24.99

Sucker. Though not nearly as much of a sucker as I am. I bought it at full price and still can't play it. Why? Because I have multiple monitors and THQ's support tells me the only way for me to get the game to launch successfully is to remove all but one from the video card.

Ironically, Guild Wars seems to run worse now than it did before.

I dual boot between Ubuntu 10.04 and Win7 but I don't always want to have to reboot to play a simple game like Guild Wars.
