Nice to hear you apreciate ECP. Thank you

Definitly, there's so many little touches that ECP adds to make the game seem more real, which all other mods don't bother with.

Converging on a town in the middle of the night and haveing the enemy AI shooting flares into the sky to see you better... freaking awesome.

Can't way to see what the ECP crew can do with ArmA.

[edit] Just saw theyarecomingforyou's post. I agree.
---snip---

As for what I'm seeing here... Valve's throwing together a -very- nice bundle for Ep2. Can't wait to play TF all over again. Memories of circle strafing around the heavy gunner as a pyro till he was fully cooked.

You simply hate Valve.

Anything associated with them you despise. You've bashed Half-Life 2 saying the game's nothing special.. I remember a long discussion about the facial expressions in the game and you refused to acknowledge there was anything great about them. You don't have to like the game, but there's obvious technical aspects to the game that are more advanced then in others. Doom 3's unified dynamic lighting and shadowing is impressive tech. F.E.A.R.'s close quarter AI is really good... these are things that stand out no matter wether you like the game or not. But no, you argued it out eventualy saying that Tron 2.0 did facial expressions better... and when people pointed you to the final chapter where one of the most stand-out examples of HL2's facial system is on display you wouldn't play it, even though at the time you had access to the game.

Sin's moved to the source engine and is being released on steam? Well you made sure to bash that game, you even proceeded to insult one of the developers when he posted here.

nin showed you flaming on Gearbox'es Halo forums. Where you there because Gearbox did the Half-Life expansions?

Rational arguments are always bent to a certain angle to make sure you punctuate whatever flaws you come up with, which tend to be simply your opinions. Alot of what you harp on isn't a problem to the rest of us, or we don't see it in the same light as you because there's no blind hatred.

That's you Smiley.

But keep fighting your fight. Just more hot air from a Monolith fanboy. I'm calling you that based on your own definitions of what makes up a Valve lacky. You defenitly are a fan of that company. Nothing wrong with that, but it's nothing but hypocritical to go after people who simply enjoy Valve's games and take an interest in them.

Of course we're not you, Monolith is great and Valve is a horrible company that doesn't deserve it's success. This is true because you can automaticly determine what's right or wrong based on your limited knowledge and, more importantly, your opinion of any given circumstance. Wish I could be soo enlightened.. heck someone like that could become president of the United States.

sheesh

The EA distributed retail version of the game is selling for $40 from many sellers like Amazon which is $30 less than the combined price of the four parts on Steam (HL2 + DM + CS + HL:S).

One more time, you can get all that + DoD:S for $20 not $30 more.

The irrelevant part is DoD:S. Why? Because someone trying to replicate the retail package would by the bundle, not buy each piece individualy. It is after all cheaper to do it that way and you get everything mentioned + 1 more item. *So the price difference is $20 not $30*. It's because of your thick head that I have to post this multiple times spelling it out very clearly just to make a simple point.

At any rate I'll actualy lend a little support to your argument... personaly I wouldn't say DoD:S is really worth 20 bucks myself, so there's still an argument for why doesn't Valve offer a $40 package with only the retail offerings.. then again the solution to that is to go to the store.

The rest of this argument comes down to supply and demand. If Valve is charging too high a price for their items they will eventualy suffer... or change the pricing. But for now what they charge for their items is what they feel it's worth. If they're wrong they'll loose (or are loosing) money.

Oh and I bet the rest of this thread will continue on bitching about prices and content delivery (and I'm as much to blame here at this moment) with no mention of the interview I posted below that has some interesintg info on the upcoming release

Right, I was just pointing out something you conveniently forgot to mention. That you could get it all for $60, not $70 or $80 (go read your original post that I was replying to. You have a very short memory)

Anyways, I don't know what deals Valve has to pull to get physical copies on the shelves, obviously EA wouldn't want them undercutting them, but it seems there's a pretty straight forward priceing. You can buy it on the shelf for $40 and add $20 if you want DoD:S, or you can buy it all for $60 directly on Steam. Not exactly unreasonable pricing, but that comes down to opinion.

The other games on Steam seem to indicate that Steam's good at getting smaller indie games out at decent prices. I haven't played any of them but Darwinia seems a good value.

Right, and if you so choose for $20 more, which is nearly the exact price difference, you can get all that pluss DoD:S through steam.

More bullshit from the king himself.

They are the same comparison. Both relate video game news.

I also visit sites for various other games (no, not just Half-Life) as I'm sure about 99% of the people here do. You can get more specific and precise news about those games from such sites, which as been shown here is a good thing when a general news site missunderstands what's being conveyed in a news article. Despite what you assume to be true (which is what you do to validate all your arguments) in your tiny little brain, that I'm some rabbid drooling fanboy, I'm just a person who enjoys video games.

Some of the people here are more interested in being arm chair crittics and conspiracy nuts.

I'm sorry Riley what was that? You where speaking from your overly biased viewpoint again. Pretty hypocritical to call someone who follows a specific game's news a lackey when you yourself can constantly be found trolling a gameing news site.

edit: And yeah, it seems like there's some (though unintentional) spin on this. I think the only thing that's occured is the name of the expansion has been changed.

From what I just read the only thing that's changed is the name. It's still the same content. And it's not too much of a surprise that there where going to be episodic releases if you've been following Half-Life news.

My concern is if this takes off publishers will start saying "no" to the development of games in genres where ad's are inapropriate. We'll see less fantasy games or anything outside of a modern day or near future genre.

one other annoyance; why does it always seem to set itself to run on startup after being patched?)

I always leave it set to not load up at windows startup and I have never seen it reset that option.

Listen, and understand. Riley is out there! He can't be bargained with. He can't be reasoned with. He doesn't feel pity, or remorse or fear. And he absolutely will not stop, until your brain bleeds out of your ears!
