News Comments > Civilization World Alpha Next Week

Wish they had dedicated more resources to avoid another bugfest release with Civ V instead of doing this POS.

Here's hoping in two years strategy games are not a fight between the facebooked AoE clones (fuck you Microsoft for tainting that) and the facebooked Civ clones.

Even Sid took his name out of the game, something he hasn't done in 20 years. That speaks volumes.

Console-based?. Yep, definitely Call of Duty.

Realistic?. Perhaps that's what *they* think.

How about releasing stand alone dedicated server clients to the public and then shutting down their servers till kingdom come?

This.

That explanation is a bunch of BS.

This is a battle in which I'd love to see both parts lose. Hard to root for anyone, Kotick or the guys that started the big drop in LAN and dedis. Fuck them all.

Blah blah blah. This is DICE in the last year: No BF1943, no LAN, no public server files, no modding, no mapping, no Onslaught mode for the PCs.

Sorry if I don't believe whatever you say, DICE. You can keep patting the head of console players and gifting them maps when they can't even do half the team actions of PC players despite being superior in numbers.

I'd laugh if it wasn't so sad.

Hey, Microsoft, we're still waiting for Windows 7's big push into PC gaming!. Unless you meant taking half our games away and giving us crappy ports, an incompatible and useless DirectX API and Games for Windows SHIT.

Damned bastards. They just aren't happy fucking us deep. They HAVE to say they're doing it for our own good.

As for Gears of War PC, they released a pretty decent port, PC users didn't buy it for whatever reason, thus the sequels aren't getting ports. Makes sense to me.
This is proof right there that you have no idea what your talking about. GoW for PC was the worst GfWL game ever released. There were so many issues it was not even funny. Not to mention that none of the other GoW games ever, or will ever, come out for PC. Because of how poor this release was an no patches to fix it definitely goes to show how Epic has changed gears and shunned PC users.

UT3 was a crap release anyhow. Nothing new to show in the series. It was UT2k4 with better graphics and thats it. As for the free Steam weekends what is the point when the game offers nothing new to the users?

Gotta agree with Necrosis there. GoW was a half-assed POS. I dropped it after I couldn't even finish the third level because it would BSOD before I could reach the next checkpoint. The fact that it had checkpoints and not saves says volumes of where Epic was going with this and the quality of the port.

As for UT3, it wasn't even UT2004 with better graphics. It was UT2003 with better graphics and was released in the worst possible moment. Add to that CliffyB's and Rein's comments against PC players and you have the reason they didn't sell shit. But of course, that was because of piracy. The Titan pack and the Steam thing was just them trying to make amends and seeing if they could get a bit more cash from Steam users.

UT3 Linux?. Just another promise broken from Epic. Par for the course.

It will be hard for him to do less than his predecessor.

The PCGA is the most useless entity in the history of gaming, probably because half of its members are PC's worst enemies.

I'm sticking with CivIV and its two expansions, best Civ game yet. Civ V is, for me, a disappointment, perhaps the biggest one of this year.

Civ V has also been a big disappointment for me, and the fact that it was buggy as hell (yeah, I know, Civ 4 was the same), and that it came without PBEM makes me think they really don't know the community.

It's hard to put buggy, few-features-and-few-civs Civ V with its shitty DLC against polished-by-years Civ IV and its numerous quality mods. Firaxis didn't help Civ V in the least.

I think I will pass on the DLCs and wait till they are collected into a proper add-on. This price is prohibitive.
Ditto, though I doubt I'll even get the package until that's on sale.

Also true, and probable. Just with the Steam Sales anyone can get enough material to play for a couple of years, if you don't NEED to play the latest immediately. After those two years, another batch of games will be on sale, and so on...

Wasn't Borderlands the one that they sold some kind of definitive edition and THEN announced that yet another DLC was in the works?.

Borderlands GOTY has all 4 DLC, though it's not on the disk, you have to download.

Damn. I can't remember then which one it was, but it definitely was the final straw for me with DLC sales.

Should be Civ5, definitely.

All this DLC shit only makes me not buy the game and wait for the Definitive Game of the World Really This Is Everything Here Edition, and then wait yet another 3 months to make sure before I buy it.

There is no PC demo to avoid piracy of the PC demo eating into the 360 and PS3 demo sales.

Er, wait...

EA stupidity at work, as usual.

They fukin deserve it, for being such stink arses when it comes to release dates leavin fans hangin for what..decades? dickheads..

Games get shipped out before they're done, and people complain about unfinished crap. Games get polished until they shine, and people complain that it takes too long...

True but the only reason they held SC2 back for about a year was all the silly bnet 2.0 stuff.

And removing features. That takes time.

3. The relative lack of success of Starcraft 2 is not due to lack of LAN support, or the shitty-ness of BNET 2.0. Considering that Korea has ubiquitous broadband access, and most gamers play in internet cafes anyways, LAN is a non-issue

Wrong. BNET 2.0 is an enormous POS even with quality broadband. And the lack of LAN support means that you can only play SC2 on Blizzard's terms. Both things have had a big impact.

Yifes wrote on Nov 28, 2010, 17:39:
4. Blizzard is not trying to destroy competitive SC1. Whats going on is not about money, but control of the IP. KeSPA feels that they created the competitive SC1 scene, and therefore should have ownership of it, which doesn't sit well with Blizzard. Its a pissing contest between two companies, and KeSPA is hardly the victim here.

The truth of the matter is that SK's scene wouldn't be the same without KeSPA. Blizzard may not be trying to strictly destroy competitive SC1, but they're certainly saying "our way or the highway". They won't mind destroying all the scene if they're not the ones controlling it.

I agree with previous posters. Blizzard has left a lot of ethics and integrity behind since the Activision merger. They certainly don't care about us gamers and what we want anymore. The priority has stopped being making great games and is now just get more money and more personal data any way they can.

I hope they keep playing SC and not SC2 in Korea. SC2 and BNET 2.0 (which is the real thing they're selling) are poisoned fruit.

And lets be honest, piracy is 800lbs gorilla in the room for the PC. With as big as a franchise as Halo is, personally I wouldn't release it for the PC for a min. of 12 months after the console version due to sales.

No, it's not, and that's ridiculous. And I'm fucking tired of hearing it while the industry posts record profits year after year.

If anything, useless DRM is the 800lbs gorilla. Look, Focus in particular, they used starforce in their products. I bought Virtual Skipper 3, then I bought Trackmania, then it broke my burner, then I never ever again bought from them.

Pirates?. They played from the first day with some virtual CD unit, can't even remember the name. Who's the guilty party here?.

Any publisher that harasses customers trying to stop the unstoppable doesn't deserve my money. And lots of games have shown that there's more than enough market in the PC if you don't release shit and you don't treat your customers like thieves. So spare me the piracy cries, please. Even a boring POS like Crysis sold millions, which was way more than it deserved, despite Cevat Yerli's ramblings.
