Imagine if dude gets on stage, picks up the mic and says "Freespace", then just drops the mic and leaves. That would be the most awesome thing, in the history of awesome. And I'm not sure the universe is prepared for the nerdgasm that would follow.

If by nerdgasm you mean mostly quiet people, then sure.

I know it's hard to believe, but Freespace 2 is a month shy of being 15 years old. A significant chunk of gamers, especially the kind that attends things like PAX, will have never played it, and will have no idea even what it is.

I feel so old...

There's a 0% chance it's Freespace. Pretty sure they don't own the IP. But there's a part of me, deep down, that truly believes it's totally gonna be Freespace.

That inextinguishable fire of hope. I'm totally with ya: No way in hell, but damn...we can dream.

"Prepare for disappointment", I tell myself.

Does the normal game also have co-op multiplayer?

What do you mean, normal game?

I mean like the standard game. Not that I want this, just curious. I've kinda been wanting the Elder Scrolls games to have some sort of co-op MP. So I can run around with my buddy. I'd rather 2 player co-op Skyrim than ESO.

News Comments > Steam Allows Multiple Game Installs
11. Re: Steam Allows Multiple Game Installs Aug 27, 2014, 14:25 Bundy
 
Maybe if the installation ran right after the download completed, this would be useful. But it doesn't speed things up if this just means downloads can run simultaneously. At least not for me. My download speed already caps on Steam, this would just mean that I get to download 10 games at once, each at 1/10th the speed as normal. The advantage to one-at-a-time is that you can start playing one of them while the others are downloading.

Might have to give this another try. Every couple of weeks I give it another attempt. I must be missing something cause I just don't see what all the hype is about. I've yet to find the fun.

I think a lot of people have a strong sense of entitlement. Microsoft attached the age of empires name to this because its recognizable. That's all this was. Boy people have a strong opinion about that. My concern is why you even give a crap what they call it. It's a stupid clash of clans clone. Who. Cares.

I think you have a strong sense of brand bias so *shrug*.

I've already explained this several times, now you're just going in circles. The name isn't unimportant, that's why they used it. Taking a recognizable property and turning it into something else often doesn't go over well with its previous fans. This being a PC gaming site I'm not at all surprised to see people care. You're also purposely ignoring the larger context of how Microsofts contributions to PC gaming have gone over in the past 5+ years.

It's a stupid clash of clans clone. Who. Cares.

This is a bad argument, you care enough to post about it so of course others do. I don't see anyone telling you what to think or do about this game, people are just posting their own thoughts. You just don't like them because they're negative.

Your own biases are quite clear too so *shrug*. All in all I couldn't care less what you think. I just think its funny that I was the only one not pissed about this. And of course I'm the only one attacked. Oh well, back to work for me. Good day.

17 I hate Microsoft comments before i chimed in. Guess i missed the memo, this place is for bitching only.

Literally no one said they hate Microsoft. 2 people used the word hate in this thread and you're one of them. The other person said they hate Windows 8.

This place isn't for bitching only but bitching in this topic is perfectly fine and even understandable considering the context. Maybe they could have avoided that by not using the name, I don't know but its no surprise to see some angst because they did.

No one is telling you what to do with your money or time. Quite the contrary, you're the one who seems concerned about what other people think and say about this.

Lol, I'm sorry you didn't get AoE4. This little game is just something for WP and Surface because there's no Clash of Clans. Just pretend it isn't called Age of Empires and you'll feel better. Chill pill, dude. It's a freaking phone game.

I was just explaining why people were upset and why it was legitimate. Stop pretending we're all outside the Redmond campus with signs and pitchforks. It's an obvious cash-in attempt and why would anyone ignore the name? That makes no sense. They are using the name on purpose because its recognizable.

Chill pill dude, relax, people are just venting. How about you pretend people aren't posting about it and be happy?

This is a mobile game, it's for tablets and phones. If Sony released a cut down version of God of War for Android it wouldn't even be a story. But MS does it and its KILL IT WITH FIRE!!!

Literally see previous response.

It's a cut down spin off to a well known franchise, and designed for mobile. This isn't aoe4.

*facepalm* That's the point and what people aren't happy about. There likely won't ever be an AOE4, they killed Ensemble and this is whats left. Of course people aren't happy about it hahah.

A bunch of people had no issue with Blizz leveraging the Diablo name to herd a bunch of nerds to a Real Money Auction house (yes, it's gone now, but was the original direction) so it's done by other "game loving" companies as well.

Most people disliked the RMAH and look at how that worked out for everyone involved.

Not really, but I am the only one here who doesn't want to set fire to their offices.

Wow, everybody is pretty upset about Microsoft making a spin off mobile version of an old game. I have a windows phone, so this is good news for me. There's no Clash of Clans on WP. Anyway, carry on, resume your hate.

Sure hope he reserved the name. Or someone's trash Swing Copters game will beat his to market and leach downloads. What am I saying, that will happen anyway.

I was considering making my wife mad and buying the DK2, cause it really does look neat. But then I'd just regret not waiting another year for the superior CR.

So that's the plan now, I'll make her mad in 2015.

Frijoles wrote on Aug 8, 2014, 13:08:
The adventure genre died for me many years ago. Just haven't found it interesting at all. I've played the emulators of Kings Quest and Space Quest, and while fun, they didn't hold me for very long. When those games came out, though, I played them all day long. And I also sent letters to Sierra asking which language to learn so I could someday work for them.

What I want to see, is a return to the adventure genre, but with the Rift. If there's one area where the Rift really shines, it's adventure games. Moving slowly through a world, finding stuff, exploring. Dear Esther worked really well with it. Games that are thick with atmosphere work well. And who better to bring us adventure games than Sierra?

Not that I'm expecting much.

Did they respond regarding the language?

Agreed regarding the Rift, I feel like it would be better suited to a first person view adventure than a shooter, where your gun always faces the middle of your POV.
