Count down for takedown notice for the Zelda II FPS....

Sad but highly likely.

Source engine, UDK style release?

I'd get behind that on the basis it's min requirements mean it would work for plenty of people.

I've been reading along, rather interested in the discussion the guys at indiegamer will have about it all.

Interesting way to gather data about the game here Cliffski, ingenius =) Trying to target the scifi space market for our company at the moment and the things I've seen here are excellent to prove sometimes an indie can just ask.

On your questions, I played the demo. Truth is I'm a action strategy person, rather then a long termer, so I passed. Not my style of the strategy genre.

One thing that does stand out, is what was mentioned about the min specs listed on the site. I have a P4 1.6ghz 512mb ram with a old Geforce in it I'll test it on and tell you if it's playable if that helps. At least then you can say that it will run on that. I'll even test it on my netbook (1.66ghz Atom 450 with the intel graphics, 1gig ram, win7 starter).

Again, well done on asking the questions. And to everybody answered, thanks for showing you're willing to answer the questions without getting aggressive and hateful. *gets tearful* This is why I love some of the gaming community =D

A lot of it reminds me of Ghost in a Shell: SAC but obviously not based in Japan.

This has been running in some parts of Asia for awhile. It was in last years WCG finals are a showcase sort of game.

From what I gathered you level up something similar to that of League of Legends, to get extra abilities for your troops/tanks and allows you to use more units. The games showed on the WCG were top level players and it was rather cool to watch.

I'm not sure how the transaction parts work, but I assume it's to level faster and other things along those lines.

It comes down to the part where you are tricking the eyes to see what isn't there. This gives me a headache and I won't even bother with it.

I saw Avatar in 2d and don't think seeing it in 3D with a headache would change it for me.

3D tricks, no thank you. There is better 3d tech out there, it's just expensive and takes up space.

I'm guessing they built it on the cheap. From what I've read it's built using the Unity engine, which is a fair chunk cheaper than their other engines, but also has support for the style MMO setup they have gone with.

I tried to get into the beta just to check it out. I'm curious to know if it supports the webplayer plugin, or if it's download only.

I would say that Blue just posts the links that Hardocp provides and credits him with a link like he does for everybody that asks.

No different from ANT and his site =)

Stupid words for common tasks. I better Ford myself down to the shops and get some dinner.

I only played X-Com a little... but that looks nothing like I remember.

Where are the future armored fighters with lazers out to kill Aliens?

Reboots can be cool... but WTF!

Heh, as apart of "this evil greedy generation" I find all of it funny!

I pay my rent, I paid off my first loan early and learnt that saving is 100000 times nicer (buying my next car outright, no loans kthx). My ultimate goal is to buy a house without a major loan (ie the lower the better, 50% deposit would be sweet!).

I finished my high school with good marks, started my first career and found I didn't like it and returned to uni. I still am doing my uni, but also work fulltime while the rest of my time is devoted to what I love and want to do for my career. I'm not lazy, well I'm a bit chubby... the lady likes to cook some god damn good meals.

Want to know the big issue with his statement? I did this all while playing Quake 3 Arena and Counter-Strike throughout high school for 3-6 hours a night most nights. And then during my first job while studying playing wow (although only like 15 hours a week).

Guess they have killed my education then aye! Then again... I play PC games, not consoles! =O

News Comments > Cecil on Piracy and Economics

"Games are overpriced"

I hardly think so, everything else has gone up and yet games have sat a a similar rate. You can still buy a $50us game after almost 20 years, yet you can't buy a brand new car for $5000us (well a decent one).

Games have stayed the same price for a long time, not even keeping up with inflation and instead have used their increased numbers of sales to stay ahead of the game. At some point it will lead to such thin margins it won't be feasible to even make a game as it will cost more than it will make. That is when prices will be driven up.

Well it's even taking place now with Activision and others increasing their prices to $60us. This has everybody crying foul, but it's a fact of life when you have a money system built on inflation as a natural factor. When games are costing more to make, the people making them still need to make money, this is business.

I agree certain things are a bit too far in regards to their pricing, but that's why it's a free market that corrects itself with lots of sales, price drops and competition.

Seriously, stop being ignorant and realise games are a business like anything in life. I'm not justifying massive profit increases by ripping people off, but asking a fair price for a good product is fine by me.

And piracy is ass! Pay for the product you use. Claiming because it's digital is a lame excuse.

Rappelz, Return of Warrior, Tales of Fantasy, Nida Online, Turf Battles and it goes on and on.

Really a lot of them look alike, hence the asian comment. Then again, there are lots of anime ones too.

Eh? He never said anything about anime or manga.... he said asian.

Look at a lot of the Free to play asian mmos around and you'll see they have a similar style in the art department. While something like allods online looks more like wow.

They don't look asian like the characters or the building, but the art direction is similar to asian mmos.... simple really.

I'm guessing the red flag is for the conducted online part, but it's the 1945 part that scares me. WW2 games have driven that number so deep into my brain I shall never forget.

Also, everything that causes pleasure is addictive, not because of what it is but because of the chemical reactions it causes in the brain. But you know, it's not excatly brain surgery. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=THNPmhBl-8I

About time NVIDIA did it. Hopefully people will update their drivers more often. Then again if only they could all make an agreement with Windows to get their updates as required in Windows update it would stop a lot of the issues developers have (ie support for people who haven't got a decent set of drivers).

Then again, people still download spyware and install it with a smile... sigh.

Hehe I agree with the trailers/demo part, it's excatly what I was thinking. They don't think of a demo as a marketing tool but as a drain on their profits.

Don't get me wrong, I love profits, but you need to learn to balance your profits with your customer service. Paid for demos aren't a service imo.

Other life in the universe? Totally believable. Our Galaxy alone is beyond belief in size.

I don't know if they roll around here, I've never seen any or noticed anything that was proof enough for me to go "OMG ALIENS!" except maybe that episode of X Files oh wait, that show ain't real!

Agreed on SETI, if they had the energy to send us a message, they would have the ability to turn up and say hello. Then again, we have issues detecting Suns going Nova at long distances and it's hard enough to see planets within our own galaxy or even other galaxies that might not even be within our current ability to see.

Humans are small compared to even our solar system let alone our galaxy or even the universe.
