News Comments > Eschalon: Book II Next Month
6. Re: Eschalon: Book II Next Month Apr 27, 2010, 17:30 Lord Tea
 
Book II is a must have for me. Indie roleplaying at its best. @kxmode: man, this sounds really good to me!! I haven't played a true scifi RPG since the Buck Rogers series from the early 90's LOL.

they would have been insane to let the release date get any closer to starcraft 2.

so true. Once StarCraft 2 is out no one will give a damn about the greatly disappointing SupCom 2 anymore. Who cares about the AI by the way? Chris Taylor and his cronies are perfectly capable of coding a good game (e.g. SupCom 1, FA, TA) but, as it seems, they have yet to learn the basics about AI programming. Modders are doing a much better job here and modded AIs are widely available for SC1/FA.

The next DRM comes with automatic shutdown if you alt-tab to windows, allows only one install and spawns a security drone that hovers next to your mouse hand with a machete. They'll get it right yet...lousy pirates, ruining gaming for everyone

ROFL!! Yep, hard times for the honest PC gamer...

And yeah, while it's impressive how many patches they're putting out, it's basically all been to do stuff that an AI is SUPPOSED to do straight out of the box.

Creston

exactly what I thought: if they have to release a patch every week or so then it's a bad sign.

News Comments > Blizzard Wields Banhammer

because

1) it runs on most computers
2) it's an easy to play hack'n'slash game
3) it can be bought for cheap
4) it has been extremely popular and Blizz is still supporting it
5) the Diablo III hype brings people back to playing D II

I never really liked it by the way; beat it once, then moved on to something new. I wasted months to years of my life with Diablo I though

Because Stardock games cost 20-50 times less to make

MattyB wrote on Apr 16, 2010, 11:54:
they've invested too much time/money in a system to throw it away early on, so they'll keep flogging the horse and trying to justify it.

Pride comes before a fall, and all that.

within the context this all makes perfect sense.

That said, it doesn't take 20-50 times the cost of a Stardock title to make a game a good one (all Stardock games I own are kickass), but it takes a lot of money to develop these new DRM "technologies" - money that the honest gamer has to pay for his own punishment.

Naval: Focuses on Naval units.

What a joke. There are 6 (six !!) naval units for all factions combined in the whole game. Headscratch

20. Re: StarCraft II Monthly Fees in Russia Apr 13, 2010, 16:57 Lord Tea
 
I bet by the time they release faction 2 (maybe 3) of Starcraft you'll have to pay for access to battle.net.

There is a very very very good reason to drop LAN support. Do you really believe it's easier to code Starcraft's/Diablo's communicating with battle.net than just include some good old LAN capabilities? Add 1 and 1 and you're there. It's all about revenue.

Any Ideas as to WHY Blizzard is doing this?

Blizzard is testing a subscription-based "future" battle.net in Russia. And by the way this isn't just my idea, it's a fact (read some of the recent interviews with the Blizzard CEO - no clear statement but lots of hints in this direction).
It's one of the reasons why I'll keep my hands off any new incarnation of Starcraft and probably Diablo III.

What he said. Supcom 2 seems better optimized with better AI and FAR better pathfinding.

better pathfinding, yes. But better AI? How? I've heard the AI mainly throws lots of units at you in a seemingly scripted way.

I'm at least glad to see GPG supporting it after release. They're not exactly well known for supporting their games.

Creston

what? SupCom 1 went through several updates (as seen here) and so did SupCom FA. I just finished the Aeon campaign in FA again and I loved it. Compared to the first game SupCom 2 is so for kids, I would never touch it.

Updates for FA? I never saw any. All the bugs from day one are still in it, AFAIK. The slow mass bug, the nukes being worthless, etc etc.

They patched SupCom well, but FA was a travesty. As was Demigod.

Creston

well FA was based on the bug-fixed SupCom 1 engine so they updated FA only twice. Yeah, there still are quite a few minor bugs in FA especially with experimentals, nothing serious though... I've never had one of those memory holes that are allegedly slowing down the game to a crawl.

I doubt they can, but then again: what's the point in getting SupCom 2 if they mod it to be FA, a game that is 2+ years old and I already have.

once you have the Racer this isn't an issue anymore, you just ignore the other traffic and afterburn yourself where you want to be.

Ubishit doesnít give a ratís ass about what anyone thinks or says. To them itís the bottom line and apparently they donít give a damn how many people they piss of along the way..

I personally donít feel sorry for anyone that buys Ubishit games. You guys all knew what you were getting beforehand and now you all are getting what you deserve.
Boycott Ubishit so we can force change.

I totally agree with this part of the post. Problem is that those fools are now spamming the whole interweb with their stupid DRM problems.

bought the Borderlands 4-pack and sold three copies to Germans in need for the uncut version

It's more than worth the ~$20.
