The Men of War games haven't been too shabby at all, so I think we can afford to be a little optimistic. Can't we?

I wouldn't say it's broken (though it is in places), rather there is much room for improvement.

Them be PR words! You aren't in PR are ya boy?

There was only one Captain's Quarter released - and a miserable grimy hole it was too. The other three were "almost done" when the Eve community started the whole Occupy movement off, so it seemed better to complete the set rather than throw them out.

I won't be buying either for this reason. 2 games I was looking forward to that I will not be purchasing now, Skyrim and D3. I hope Rage and SWTOR will keep me entertained till the next round of "games I'm looking forward to".

Rage may not be made by Bethesda, but they sure as well will be profiting from it. Way to stick it to Notch, Judas!

I hear the add-ons aren't part of the deal. I hear also that a 360 controller worked well for Privateer, so I assume it should be good for WC1+2 too.

My mind is still reeling from the "Battleship: The Movie (Based on the Hasbro game)" movie posters I saw this weekend at Century Theaters.

I had to sit through the trailer a week or two ago. I have no idea who greenlighted that one or thought it'd make money.

You're fucking kidding me, a Battleship movie? Why was I not warned about this travesty? No wonder my countrymen are rioting and looting.

Gaming journalism? Gaming shilling you all mean.

Any real journalists would take a look at all the so-called "game journalists" and die laughing. There are some few notable exceptions but in truth most game journalists don't even have the minimum requirements to be called errand boys in a real newspaper or any other place that employs journalists.

As a "games journalist" myself (back when the term was even more meaningless), I would agree with you for the most part. However, I'd also say that journalism as a whole has long been discredited, regardless of the genre. The entire news trade is little more than a form of copy-writing, BBC included. As you say, there are exceptions. I'd say that J. Walker of RPS is a hero that deserves recognition.

Great game. It's basically Counter-Strike with mobility scooters: for people like me who have gotten too slow and old for mainstream FPS games.

I had a tinker with both games a couple of years ago and they seemed to be to be how you'd imagine a Battlecruiser 3000AD game if it were re-imagined into an RTS.

Read into that what you will.
