The update to the demo seems to fix a lot of the problems I was having. I played through again and I enjoyed it more. Hmm.

This was my original impression (copypasta):


I've played the Jagged Alliance demo and tried to like it but I can't. The enemy spots me through obstacles; I keep finding myself in places where they can shoot at me and I cannot shoot back even when I stand; throwing grenades indoors is rubbish; I even tried firing a grenade through the window in an attempt to counter the insane ambush when capturing the second point... and he just stood there being shot at, not firing.

I kept trying to like it, but if the demo is anything to go by I'll be giving it a miss.

I also had a problem with guards repeatedly being alerted by a corpse, to the end that there was a huge swarm of enemies all hunched around this guy I had taken out a long time ago, a group that I couldn't possibly handle. A group that rushed me in one big go when I captured the second point.

The obstacles the enemies could see me through included trees and walls.

This was the demo, so part of me hopes that it's fixed in the main game, but I'm not going to buy the main game with the hope it's fixed when the demo is saying "Nuh uh, I don't play that way."

... installing Jagged Alliance:BiA ...

The demo put me right off. Do tell me if they fixed things like being seen through terrain (walls, trees) and I had a huge number of soldiers swarming around this corpse - who then all charged me at once when I captured the second point

I really want to like it, but the demo put me off.

I tried to like the demo, but if that's anything to go by... I hereby agree with space captain. The streams have been crossed

That said, if Notch funds PS2, he'll be PC gaming's greatest hero. :)

I don't think that came out as intended

Meh. When I arrest people I put everything down that they COULD be charged with. It is up to the City, County or other office to decide what to charge them with.

Might not even have been arrested for resisting arrest.....

I thought you just punched them in the face and then disappeared into the night sky, leaving the police to clean up the mess?

Skyrim cost me 34.99, and according to Steam I've currently squeezed 376 hours out of it. No regrets here.

If my early morning maths serves me correctly, that's just under 10 pence per hour of entertainment.

Got a week of vacation in march, think I'm going to finally have to break down and get this...
Think of all those succulent mods which should be out by then. The editor is due out in a couple of days... om, nom, nom

I played the free weekend last time, and I downloaded it for the free weekend this time... but I can't bring myself to play it.

Is the single-player campaign better than the multiplayer... slugfest?

Also, as an FYI, I installed DNF the other day.

I last two hours before uninstalling it. Sorry.
I saw it on the Steam midweek sale (not seen anything about it on Blue's yet) for 75% off and still passed. I honestly don't think they could pay me to play it.

News Comments > Microsoft Dropping MS Points?
8. Re: Microsoft Dropping MS Points? Jan 24, 2012, 11:35 J
 
Whilst you have some good 'points' (rimshot!) about MS points, the main issue I had - and I doubt I'm alone in this - was that I'd end up with leftover points if I were to purchase something. It's like having to pay ten for something that's worth nine.

If a company wants me to jump through extra hoops, they need to make it worthwhile somehow. If I have to put in extra energy and money to get something that I could happily get elsewhere - why would I want to do that?
