How about we make games for everyone, and everyone will be happy? I don't like adventure games or RPGs, but that doesn't mean I don't want them to get developed or promoted. With online distribution, if there is an audience for it, it will get made. I personally don't care if the "big" publishers care about the PC as long as I can play things like The Witcher 2, SpaceChem, Breach, Starpoint Gemini, Bronze, APOX, et al.

Any journalist that takes a "lavish trip to preview games" has completely lost any and all fucking credibility.

Previews are bad. Previews are lies. Because you can't criticize something that isn't finished yet (well, I guess you could), so all you can talk about is the good stuff. So that's why I rarely do them (4 in the last five years).

Read Out of Eight's review here for more details.

Now that I see what the price is ($10 for the next week), fans of multiplayer RTS games should totally get it. I figured it'd be around $30. I wonder if I can add a new "6.5" score.....nah.

Everyone once in a while they will have a "sale" that drives the price all the way down to $50. The manual makes it worth it, though. And, yeah, the game itself, too. Just dooooo itttttt.

LOL thanks. You know it was a joke, right?

It gave me a moment of hestitation. I've been looking forward to this game for a long time, so I've been waiting for something to cause my high hopes to come crashing down. Just had to be sure

I e-mailed the press contact just to be sure, and yes, the game has full mouse support.

See the evening preview from yesterday on it.

That's a positive sign, but most previews are positive. That "soul energy" mechanic seems interesting, though: let the heroes live for as long as possible.

M.U.D. TV (by the same developer) was not great, so we'll see.

The 3 to 8 scale is weird

Gotta be unique! By the way, I do give some 1's and some 2's, but I try not to ask for crappy games to review

Prez wrote on Dec 25, 2010, 03:55:
but I gotta say your reviews are some of the best around

My ego thanks you!

Prez wrote on Dec 25, 2010, 03:55:
The only thing I wish they had are screenshots

You and a bunch of others. I don't put them for a couple of reasons: (a) pages load faster without graphics, making the reviews suitable for mobile platforms and slow Internet connections, and (b) it's more work for me.

Probably be similar to Afghanistan, which was essentially a mission and unit pack.

Well, I just thought that if they were going to add stuff to China and Japan, they might as well exert a bit more effort and extend similar systems to North America, Africa, and South America (and India, too).
There are other things that still aren't improved (like taking five click to reach the CoT list).
As for the hordes, I just feel that they are too overpowered given the current game rules: you have to deal with them on multiple levels simultaneously, which is above and beyond what is required for more civilized nations.

There were no mentions of any PC-centric advantages like higher resolutions, AA and higher framerates.

You were expecting something different from Gamespot?
