If they reveal HL3 before Episode 3 the internets will melt and burn. I can see it now Episode 3 = HL3 a quote by Gabe.

From what I know it was an out of date Apache server with no firewall. Sounds like the 13 year old hacker of my past could have done that one or my Grandmother. Lawsuit coming hard but do people understand that they left a known vulnerability not be patched and didn't have a firewall and no encryption on passwords??? Answer no.

It is real early but YAWN. I have a hard time not seeing the horrible non-patching fiasco studio ES and seeing Gas Powered. I think this is not what RTS fans are looking for. So far DotA and League of Legends are the last best hope for RTS

I miss Rise of Rome and Rise of Nations

I know I have posted this before but they NEVER PATCHED Guild! It was a HUGE bug and they never patched it and stated that it wasn't worth the money to fix it. Never bought another game from them since.

Silent Storm was awesome!

How is this IP a good fit for a MMO of any kind or even a video game???? It's a great series because it's different and is not a action based narrative. It's politics and intrigue.

Game of Thrones - Living Card Game by Fantasy Flight is an awesome game that feels like you are playing a game based on the series. If you haven't given it a try head down to Barnes and Nobles and buy the core set. It's $40 and plays great. Any action based game would not be this series.

The patent system is anachronistic and needs to be abolished.

This is like when Thomas Edison tried to Patent out everyone from movies. Bad for the art and bad for the public.

News Comments > A Game of Thrones - Genesis This Summer
11. Re: A Game of Thrones - Genesis This Summer Feb 16, 2011, 18:44 UConnBBall
 
I just don't see a RTS for this series. The action is very lite and this is more an intrigue and rumors book. Heck The Game of Thrones is either win or die and its about the Kings Council, back stabbing and the politics and not the armies.

This would be better suited in EU 3 then in any RTS. This game will not give the same feeling of this series period.

Also if you haven't read it read it they are good books in and of themselves and don't have to be finished.

The Civ IV theme song always reminded me of some generic "world music" you would find in the gift shop of some podunk natural history museum.

I'm laughing at myself with Monkey maker MONEY maker

Also didn't fit their vision of making money with video games on Windows? The PC side scares me. If they didn't have Windows gaming and another company did they would spend billions on taking over. They are the super power and they are don't use it for any advantage.

Um Microsoft killed the community when it killed The Zone.

Then

Microsoft killed it when it Killed Ensemble Studios.

That studio was a monkey maker and they still killed it. Also their stupid patching since Rise of Rome has always been one frustrating endeavor. I will jump in when it comes out just to see if old friends might show up but who knows.

Love this on XBox but this will be a blast on PC. I am getting my mouse and keyboard skills (or lack of skills) ready.

Um this is the dumbest Headline ever.

OK How about Google follows Firefox and drops the patent Lord's H.264 for a patent freeish and open sourced codex?

Seriously Apple and MS lovers need to chill on making Open Sourced solutions evil??? What is going on????

Well since The Guild was never patched to fix a game ending bug I never bought another game from them period. I would have and my friend gave me silent storm but never a dollar. Heck you can still buy The Guild online and it still has the same game ending bug.

Bug = You have to complete a quest to further the profession (I think Potter) and to do the quest you had to send some materials to one city and the bug makes it so you can never send anything to the one city. Easy fix but never done.

This is the most wildest news and saddest. Kilipsh aka the best speakers for the money are going to be owned by the cheapest crap making audio company ever.

Broadcom joining Linux foundation next thing you will know Apple and Microsoft follow suit.

Cedega is going free (Cost) also crazy! They took the Wine code while it was in a BSD license and then forked it to a totally priority cost software. Now its going free?????

I think I will be the only one to find this news together as stunning as the dead fish and birds in Arkansa.
