I don't play any of these games so it has no impact on me. Some are fairly recent, but others like Burnout Revenge had a pretty good run.

This is the usual crap where they say "in the browser" - not only isn't it desirable to play "in the browser" you have to install crap only to get a bad interface.
Get a grip Westwood and give us a proper Red Alert game (with small units who don't take up 80% of the screen!)

Westwood has, sadly, been gone for a very very long time.

I wonder if its worth replaying the beta to get the achieves again and to see what the state of the game is. Like will they give any of the full achieve beta players anything in the real game (like a unique flag symbol, etc).

I would guess that if you complete the achieve or completing the selected beta achievesthat will result in a Feat Achieve in the final release.



IIRC this was not done in any other beta (WoW expansions, SC2) so I would imagine you won't get anything. The beta is short enough that it wouldn't take long to just do it either way.

Patch can't fix dwindling player numbers, doubt it'll be enough to bring them back.

Shows quite a few people on, and it is noon on a workday. Not sure what you were going for there.


Here are the changes for anyone curious.

It was a fun little flick but that's it. Way too late for a game about it. Hell, the only realy part of he film I really liked anyway was about "Charlie Bronson always has rope."

While I disagree with the only liked bit (you can hate on 2 all you want, but 1 was damn good sir!), I agree with the rest. Wayyyyy too late for a game at this point, unless it is just a crazy game changer. And since it is a movie game, I highly doubt that.

So they aren't denying that they are doing it.
They are just denying they are doing it SOON.
Wonder what that means in valve time

An inverse Valve time vortex that will swallow existence itself :/


... Luckily it won't come until a few months after we see it coming though, so hey we have that!

Did not seem to learn anything from my perspective. Vashjir, the sea area is basically useless. Nothing there, no reputation to gain, nothing. How can you add an area like that without putting something in it that is usefull?

That was one of the few zones of Cata I liked. At least it was something fun and different - exactly what I want out of an expansion. Not everything needs to be a grind of some kind. I liked it more than boring Hyjal anyway.

I'm still expecting we're going to get hammered with one more snow before "winter" is over, despite the high being 78 here today. Weirdest winter here in a long time.


Last time we had such a warm winter in the south east we also got a Blizzard in March, so you never know. Mother nature loves to troll

that rate of attrition, btw, has slowed considerably in the last quarter)

I'm sure that has absolutely nothing to do with the 1 year free Diablo 3 subscription plan they offered in that quarter. Mean

Didn't they just announce that Blizzard DOTA will be a standalone game, rather than an SC2 mod? Makes total sense that that would be the candidate then.

From the SC2 page it looks like it is still very much a SC2 mod. That said, Blizzard isn't the swiftest to update its sites, so who knows.

This guy is a moron if he thinks Uncharted isn't at least as well written as most Hollywood blockbusters. I think he has forgotten that the last Indiana Jones movie wasn't exactlly brilliantly written.

I agree that games like Deus Ex deserve to be nominated over most of the games that were nominated, but it's not like other award shows make anymore sense either.

I think (as sad as it may be) video game writing eclipsed your average Hollywood blockbuster a while ago. I still think top notch movies, overall, are better written than top notch video games, but your run of the mill movie? I think video games may have that.

As someone who loved the original Tribes I have been looking forward to this. Nice to get to see it before release as I was burned pretty bad by the buggy mess touted as Tribes 2.

I still remember going to a local LAN center to play Unreal Tournament with some friends only to see everyone there playing Tribes. I sat down and joined in and was in love. Then I got T2 on launch... ugh what a mess.

Sounds like that whole realID thing was a flop.


It was a pure flop. Who the hell has RL friends that play this shit, and even if they played it, who the hell would want their friends to know about it because it's an addiction.

And the game is meant to be a pug game where you meet strangers and make new online friends, but that's a joke too.

A lot of jokes been coming from Blizzard, yet we still have millions of subscribers eating all that shit(that Blizzard shoves down their throats) without thinking twice about it because they're brainwashed fanbois.

It isn't some gaming revelation, but I use it and I like it just fine. I just don't add every random person I play online with to it. It is for *gasp* real life friends who I play SC2 and (previously) WoW with.

I guess if you some oddity that has 0 real life friends you play games with then it serves no purpose, but for everyone else it has a niche use.

Would you like to play a Revolutionary War shooter? Rate of fire expressed in rounds per hour! Woo!

There was such a mod for Half-Life and it was actually pretty entertaining.

I loved that mod. Particularly fun/funny if you found a populated server and people actually advanced in a line

Also, it will once again be possible to reduce the number of players required to start a round to 1 both in ranked and unranked mode. We changed it back after getting a lot of negative feedback from both individuals and the RSP companies.


FINALLY. Trying to setup a joy stick for the vehicles was a nightmare in a live game.

Oh wow... and people keep on giving money to these guys, EA/DICE. Bf3 was done for the PC my ass, that was a convenient lie to get PC gamers to dish out for their consolized game.

Uh... just looking at screenshots would show you work was clearly done for the PC version. It has visuals far out of the PS3/360 range. The server browser is also web based. I think that was a dumb idea, but it clearly shows a PC thought process.

Announcing a Collector's Edition before the game's release is even known is the definition of hubris. Blizzard is as out of touch as George Lucas.

Um... in what way is having the cinematics rated by the British Board of Film Classification announcing a CE? And how in the world would it be hubris if it WAS an announcement? It was a given that this game was going to have a CE and it is already in beta.
