I believe the unreal mod you're trying to think of is Strike Force.

Fun little mod, too bad it never really took off compares to CS.

It's amazing how these social networks come and go.

Facebook/myspace/twitter aren't my ball game at all. Then again, I do try to avoid saying retarded comments. I guess growing up on the net with trolls, forum mods and just plain evil sobs has taught me to watch my tongue on the net because it all comes back to bite me in the ass =D

Then again, I'd rather my private moments be private and my future employers don't decline my oppotunity to be employed due to my facebook promoting "lol drunk weekend ftw!" or "taking sickie cause of mad concert".

There is a thing to be said about personal interaction, but I did meet my fiancee via the internet (she did live local however).

Isn't this the same mod that's been in development for years? Going retail is cool, but they haven't excatly proved they can release a product within a reasonable time frame.

Then again, maybe their goal the whole time was to create a standalone game.

Kind of expected this, don't know if id gave the rights to EA and would have to back out.

Ravenrex EA haven't done that in awhile, they just make a noise "baaadoing" or something.

All publishers publish some crap games, then again, crap is subjective just like good. =)

Ventura, I know this isn't the right news post and it's a week late.

But your comment about the MW2 on steam costing $89.99USD is because of the current exchange rate for aust. They still want to charge us the usual $100+ AUD for the game and with our exchange hovering around 90+ cents to the US dollar that's how they do it.

Sigh, screwed on ratings and on prices.

Myself and my brother are going to make submissions. He's only 17 but he cares about it just as much.

Adult games for adults, I am fine with them banning pedo-rape simulators and alike, but games are entertainment just like books and movies.

Guess we can finally be counted (you know assuming they don't just ignore us heh).

Good luck fellow Australians!

News Comments > Reports: Bethesda's Interplay Injunction Denied [Updated]
10. Re: Reports: Bethesda's Interplay Injunction Denied Dec 11, 2009, 13:53 RenownWolf
 
I'd rather be interested in the actual judges ruling as it's usually full of reasoning as to why each part of the motion was denied.

I'm no pro but I do pay attention to the missus when she's blabbering about her law studies and the judges reasoning can sometimes be the most insane yet awesome thing you've heard.

Then again, you can also see where the appeals come from when a judge just rambles and gives no decent reasoning (suggests that they either have no idea what to think, were too tired or would rather let the appeal judges figure the mess out).

A bit dry on an actual point that was. Like reading the funnies in the newspaper.

Indies never disappeared really, but now they don't rely on a big publisher to bring it to retail with the internet now so widespread and people having decent speeds to download the games they want to try without pressure ($50us/$100aud price tag).

Good luck to the indies I say, sometimes KISS is the right path indeed.

I wouldn't say horrid =\

But it looks a few years old, more like it was designed around the q3 era. Playstation 2 game maybe? heh.

Gotta say at least they are holding a position in the market. Really they have set themselves up decently if they can manage to get an exclusive on a decent game.

That being said, a few more features and better developer integration would help spread their tools further.

I don't know what royalties they go for, but the easier you make it for developers to release their games on there, or better yet indies, the more it will expand because the developers will help market impulse for them to sell their games.

News Comments > On Microtransactions
3. Re: On Microtransactions Dec 5, 2009, 01:12 RenownWolf
 
I'm curious, would people here prefer micro transactions or a subscription (say maybe $5us a month). Or better yet pre-paid time for ingame time.

For example say $5-10us for a 90 hours game card (that's 3 hours a night for a month), is that something you guys would consider? Personally I'd jump at it as it means I'd only be paying for time I've used.

Btw, just picked those numbers from my head, just wonder if it's a decent idea?

Considering their next action was to start hiring up in countries with a lower level of income it does appear a bit of bs.

News Comments > Battlefield 2142 Patch Details
2. Re: Battlefield 2142 Patch Details Nov 30, 2009, 12:48 RenownWolf
 
It would be rather nice if there was mass bannings for the BF series. I realise they do try... but no matter the security there will be botters but they really need to ban hammer more and have a more active anti-cheat setup.

Sorry but PB fails in everygame... all it ever does it fail to work and boot you from servers at the worst times and yet the hacker is still in there happily destroying the game.

The BF2 patch fixed somethings... but mostly it reminded the hackers that it was the place to be =\ I'll wait until the player count has dropped again so there is a chance they are legit players rather than botters etc...

MMORPG Churchy style fun fun. And a mere $60,000 required... by Dec 2.

I greatly doubt it's going to work, all the power to them, but I doubt they get anybody doing their "pledge" over $100 even though you can do $3000.

It all kinda gives me the creeps =\

Wow China is such a interesting place. While other countries look at internet addiction and go "lol as if addicted", China is right in it's face trying to stop it.

Mmm... guess somebody should get working on a Cultural MMO experience with micro transactions and a small monthly fee ($1 a month of whatever suits the chinese market). Maybe add a WoW type arena mode for the competitive mode with awesome fights like... The Politician vs the Historian!

After a quick look and only found the click on the "redeem your pre-order beta key" part for the Open beta.

Guess it's more of a Pre-order gimmick like always.

I like Star Trek and all, but from watching the video with the "It's a tank ship, a dps ship and a support buff ship", I don't expect great things =\

I still live in hopes of more Firefly... picked up the boxset at a dvd shop one day and read it. "Meh looks arlight, and on sale for $20 (aud mind you).

How my perception of sci-fi western changed from "haha cowboys in space is silly" to "THEY CANCELED THIS?? WHY!!!".

Go go firefly! I'm a real sucker for good sci-fi =\ Even had my missus paying attention to SG1 instead of listening to her Twilight books crap =D
