Oh come on be nice - 2 out of 3 ain't bad and even the most rabid nintendo and xbox fanboy must at least give the PS1 and PS2 grudging respect for simple worldwide domination.

Pity it looks like the PS3 isn't gonna do the same.

I loved TR: Legends and with the advancements God of War, Devil May Cry and even Prince of Persia have made with the fighting elements, TR will hopefully stick to the exploration and puzzle solving which were always better then the fights anyway.

Yeah maybe my brain is in meltdown - or maybe a single junior person in advertising can create a hell of a lot of good word of mouth using a few well placed comments and reviews.

You only have to look at the huge amount of studio planted film reviews that turn up on so called independent websites to see that the marketing men have caught on to the fact that, a lot of people will pay more attention to what is meant to be an unbiased indepedent reviews rather then notice as their pop blocker stops the latest advert.

And of course it is a fraction of the cost of creating an advert.

Then again I could be totally wrong and the guy could be totally innocent - we'll never know either way.

Oh btw X Files was never my cup of tea.

ok liquid entertainment apparently did Battle Realms (82% ), War of the Rings (67% ), DragonShard (80% ) and erm Desperate Housewives (61% ).

So 3 RTS and 1 RTS (real turdy shite). Guess we'll have to see if they can play more then one tune.

Surely this show is perfect for an MMO.

Throwaway plot nobody cares about.

New islands, creatures, races added yearly (easy expansions).

Never ending

Generic Characters.

Random people speaking forgeign languages which need translators.

Fat sweaty long haired guys (oh wait that meant to be the players)

Actually I do have a decent concept of the legal system - but I also have have a decent perspective on the world and and more importantly morals.

As I said Valve/iD could take the moral high ground here and say "Yeah, it's a couple of art assets which are not really 100% important to either our game or theirs - go for broke guys, good luck, competition is good".

Unfortunatly you seem to be of the opinion that a single game can be summed up and broken down to a few textures. As far as we know they haven't stolen engine code, level design, model design, gun balances, ai routines, huds, storyline etc etc. However a couple of tiny pictures..."SUE EM" "THIEVES" "GRAB YOUR PITCHFORKS".

I wouldn't normally say this - but it's 3:21 and I'm going to bed so please don't think that just cause I don't reply to your self righteous overly legislative bollocks that I have conceeded to your narrow point of view.

I'm not saying it's right - I'm saying if they have used 2 or 3 or maybe 20 small gfx files from other companies then is it really worth destroying them?

Seriously what do iD or Valve have to lose from this. If an entire game was based around Gardon Froomen with every single texture ripped from HL2 then yeah by all means sue.

But as other people have pointed out Stalker, HL2 and Doom3 are all very different games - except for the common camera angle of course.

"Sue them into oblivion" - that statement there sums up not only what is wrong with america, but also why the rest of the world hates you.

iD and Valve could actually take a decent line here and back off.

The news has broken - proved or not it's now gospil on a lot of gaming sites. So do iD or Valve really need to sue a small russian company for a small percent of the profits made from a game scoring an average of 83%?

Now would be the perfect time if a few art assests are used to welcome newcomers onto the scene and encourage PC development surely?

Of course if they have wholesale ripped off huge chunks of code and art and engine and ideas and steam (no wait that's going to far) then they deserve to burn in hell. Although of course if they are burning in iDs hell then they must make sure not to bring back pictures

mostly its not worth it because the current state of vista and its drivers are what makes it fail

hmm maybe that's microsoft are using a old game to showcase it - they could probably run it in software emulation on new processors and still get 60fps

1. Poll Mar 29, 2007, 11:17 Lorcin
 

I don't know anything about this game - however after a quick browse at the screenshots I noticed this poll on the front page:

Which one of them is your first choice?
Handsome boy--Lance
Tough guy--Carsise
Pretty girl--Phyllis
Cute elf--Ami


Obviously going for the hardcore mmo players. Could still be fun though.

TBH I probably didn't play it as much as I could have - it simply didn't grab me. But then again WoW never did either - I played that for quite a while before realising I didn't actually enjoy it.

EQ2 and Vanguard are totally different stories though - EQ2 and Vanguard (retail not early beta) grabbed me from the off.

Don't bother dude - it's a shiny wow clone with only one side and seriously constricted by the tolkien license.

Christ within 2 mins of playing I'd looted leather which had an identical icon to the one in WoW.

I wouldn't ever buy a game of a film unless it scored 90+ so why the hell would I preorder a online game of a book???
