I can't argue about AP, but TC was a giant clusterfuck as well. I actually wrote a guide to the Terran Plot because so many people were getting stuck in it at the time. There were dozens of ways that entire campaign could break.

So yeah, the bugs are just Egosoft as usual. The stupid gameplay design decision, however....

I sit corrected. I don't remember hearing anything particularly negative about TC and picked it up last year on the Steam Big Box o' X sale.

Like I said, the design decisions are just a more clear and recent example of Egosoft's grasp exceeding their reach. They've got great ideas and great artists, to be sure, but damn do their systems coders need more experience or to be lead by someone with complex, hierarchical systems experience.

Egosoft/X - Rebirth raped my mom, my sister, my wife, my second wife, my other wife and then kicked my pregnant dog. Then, when my pregnant dog suddenly went in to labor, they raped the puppies!

OMFG! GET THE PITCHFORKS, TORCHES AND ROMANIAN EXTRAS!

Having read the X threads over the last couple of days, I've had a good couple of chuckles. I'm guessing either younger members have never played the earlier X titles or are severely blinded by their rose tinted glasses. Every X launch has been a total clusterfuck with the exception of TC and AP (as those are essentially mods) and every X title has required extensive patching and rework. Whilst they eventually tidy up the title to a playable, if not enjoyable, state, Egosoft's track record is one of continuously buggy releases. They had, what, four titles on the old X engine and it still had fundamental issues (like watching a TL nosedive straight in to a station over and over again until it exploded). This allegedly new engine, with a cornucopia of new features and an entirely different approach to the X universe should have been a really clear indication that Egosoft was extending their grasp far, far beyond their reach.

It's like complaining that your Triumph or MG keeps breaking down. Duh, look at the manufacturer. What'd you honestly expect?

I hope this is better (than 2), but I'm also incredibly skeptical, at this point.

While I was not pleased with the revisiting of the same seven locations over and over in DA2, I think story-wise it was a much better game than DA1. DA1 was your generic, messianic fantasy story. Even the NPCs were much more bland in DA1. Isabela, Varric and Merrill were consistently amusing and entertaining and I don't recall hearing the same conversation twice.

DA2 just felt more personal to me and I didn't mind the reduction of customization and hojillion and a half skills. Then again, I play games for their stories and not their mechanics or features.

Btw, for those who are waiting for it, apparently Xcom Enemy Within has been released.

I did not purchase it but Steam downloaded this 4GB "patch" just now. Seems like the content is already there, it just needs the unlock which is stupid for those of us who don't want to purchase it right now.

Give AMD some credit. They designed the damn thing, I would think they'd kinda know what they're doing, yes?

Don't be silly, Rigs. This is BN. We're all world recognized experts in programming, game design and hardware design. In many cases, we know better than the creators themselves. It's that special kind of omnipotence that only we possess.



Yes, that was total sarcasm. However, no doubt someone will take it seriously nevertheless.

It's the Shakespeare of the 1960s 1940s.

And even back a little bit in to the 30s. By the time the 60s rolled around, the Golden Age of Cartooning was in its twilight hours. Crap like Speed Race and Geforce, as well as Hannah-Barbera, were starting to become popular because they were much less expensive to create.

If you want to see some mad cartooning skills, check out the early Popeye cartoons in black and white that were rotoscoped. They were 3D before 3D was a thing...by at least 50 years.

The last really enjoyable arcade racing game for me was Midnight Club: LA.

Blur was crap. The NFS series has been one giant steaming pile after another. Need I mention "The Run"? GRID2 was a joke compared to how much better GRID was.

Eehh, no

I have played TW since Shogun 1 and I played the hell out of Rome 1 when it released. And god damn R2 is in a bad state.

Performance is crap, unit balance/stats are bad, battles are over waaay too fast.

This is a dissappointment on the same level as Diablo 3.

Are you playing the same game I am? It doesn't sound like it.

Performance is vastly improved from launch and is quite acceptable across three systems I regularly play on. I think I get chop maybe once an hour as textures are loaded/reloaded but it is for no more than five seconds max.

Unit stats are fine. They've been continuously balanced over, what, five patches now? It is now impossible to have a single unit type dominate the battle field, not even Praetorian Guards. Battle times are also fine. My average battle lasts about 30 minutes which I think is perfectly acceptable given that the main focus is managing and extending an empire.

Not sure we need another cartoony MMO that is quite similar to everything else on the market.

Something they were told five years ago when it started development.

I'm glad to hear that Hudson is doing much better, Blue.

I have a very geriatric pup whom is half Collie and half Cocker. She's very thin and keeping weight on her is an issue. Puppy chow generally tends to be very high in fat so if you have a lightweight dog whom is active and has a high metabolism, it's a great way to keep their weight within healthy comfortability.

The crap Iím referring to Black, is a Cross thatís been up on top on a hill for generations, now some smuck who has an issue with it comes here and complains and wants it removed. Thatís the shit that boils my blood to no end. If they donít like it, go back to the shit hole they crawled out of. This is just one instance of many other things like it.

The land of the free, where all men are created equal and possess inalienable rights, indeed. So long as you're part of the chosen tribe.

What. The. Fuck. Ever.
