Seems like Gamespy being closed should warrant a much more spectacular send off. Gamespy has been an avid sponsor of all things gaming for decades now. Seems sad that all they warrant is a couple of links and a "so long, thanks for all the fish".

I picked up XCom as well. GMG transactions wouldn't go through for me until I called my credit card company and authorized them specifically. I think the problem is that I'm in the US and they are a European vendor. $16 was too good a price to pass up.

Steam posts seem to be mostly positive. Apparently there are some difficulties selecting groups, or controlling groups or some such. I was holding out on the pre-order for this. The description sounds some much like Dungeon Keeper that it sounded like a clone. Forums posts by the developers indicated there were some DK elements, but it also had elements of Dawn of War. Both high quality titles but I don't know how good the match up would be.

I really thought Battlezone and Battlezone II were great titles. Multiplayer was sort of meh, but they were in the late 90's when almost everything had sort of meh multi-player. Gameplay was wicked cool though.

The preview trailer doesn't show a whole lot, but this has been my favorite turn-based series since the original AoW. Top notch, in my book. It will probably be on my pre-order list when they give some additional doo-dad. Wiz portraits or some such.

I really like the Hitman movie. Thought Timothy Olyphant acted it pretty good; all straight faced when checking out hot chicks or killing evil henchmen. Only problem I had with the movie was when they were in the Russian train station. The conversation would have gone something like this"
"So the guy has a tattoo on his neck, right?"
"Da"
"Ok, so stop everyone with a tattoo on their neck."

News Comments > McDROID and Demo Released
2. Re: McDROID and Demo Released Feb 6, 2013, 12:17 Keith
 
Tried the demo. Seems like a fun little title. You basically start with a "McDroid" and some hardpoints to upgrade with weapons. You can research upgrades for the weapons hardpoints as well as your McDroid (better armor, faster repair speed, and the like). Has a bit of the ol' tongue in cheek humor, too, just to keep things going.

Looks to be closer to Dungeon Keeper than any of the other recently released "dungeon master" type games. I'm always sketchy about Paradox games though. I'm not sure how the developer - publisher balance works out, but it usually seems like I'm left holding the proverbial bag with a shoddy product.

News Comments > Silent Hunter Online Trailer
2. Re: Silent Hunter Online Trailer Feb 4, 2013, 22:33 Keith
 
I really liked Silent Hunter III. SH IV had too many bugs, and I never picked up SH V because it is widely reported to have even more bugs than SH IV. Still, there is something to be said for cruising the Atlantic (or the Pacific) and trying to stealthily approach convoys so you can nail them broadside with a torpedo strike. Hopefully UBI has learned its lesson on releasing bug-ridden games with draconian DRM. The lack of trust in UBI at this point is evident in less than expected returns on the latest Ghost Recon release, as well as Anno 2070, etc., etc.

I could care less about Secret World. Just wasn't any fun. Conan wasn't any better. I would buy Anarchy Online II though. Awesome game. Still get all nostalgic to fire it up now and then.

Although the download for this is super-slow so I haven't been able to try it, the concept sounds cool and the videos looked pretty solid. A little tongue-in-cheek, a little mayhem. Add robots, guns, and farm animals and I'm at least going to give it a whirl.

Too bad they couldn't put any effort into adding customizable controls. Opportunity wasted.

I actually liked Demigod. Admittedly it didn't evolve into what it was hoped to be, but it was still a fun romp when playing against the AI. What is more concerning to me is the transition from Supreme Commander to Supreme Commander 2. SC 1 captured the essence of Total Annihilation, in my opinion, where SC 2 was like a post-Thanksgiving turd. Glad is came out, but really just wanted to flush and forget it.

I'm not sure why anyone would see the Stalker as OP. I played a few games in my shiny new one and it was fun, but nothing particularly earth-shattering. I also went a few rounds in Yen-Lo Wang and my Catapult and didn't seem to have any trouble fighting the Stalker.
As far as weapon groupings go, I think you are way over-simplifying the issue. Yes, they stay in the groups once you make them. However, add in that the process is more confusing and difficult than it should be, frequent weapons change outs, and having to do it at the start of an actual battle rather than in the mech bay or somewhere more appropriate, and it's just silly. Sure, it's doable, but why wouldn't you make it user friendly? It is functional, but not one single iota more.

I'd like to see another Unreal game. Preferably one with a single player component. I liked the original Unreal, and Unreal 2 was OK. Played the hell out of UT and even still have UT3 installed. I wonder how well the original holds up by modern standards. I see it on sale every once and a while on Steam and think I should take a run through just of nostalgias sake.

I really like that the Stalker has been included. One of my favorite designs from the old table-top days. Never could play it well, of course, but one of the modules or something featured a graphic of a STK-3K Stalker smashing through a wall to get to the 'mech on the other side. Good stuff. I am still dissapointed in M:O though. They still have the worst weapon grouping system on the planet, bar none, and practically no immersion. Graphics are improving slightly, but the store is improving significantly. Seems a bit odd to me, but I'm not their accountant.

I still don't understand why they haven't released a patch that adds configurable controls to either of the Transformers games. Possibly they are just trying to avoid me buying both. Which is working, I hasten to add.
