Well there's always X3:Terran Conflict if you want to get your space sim on.

I'm guessing these guys just want to make an RTS, however ho hum it may turn out.

I prefer Evochron Mercenary: http://www.starwraith.com/evochronmercenary/index.htm

The series has been out awhile now and kind of reminds me of Elite.

Silent Hunter 5 was on sale on steam for liek few bucks but ubi drm stopped me from even shelling out few bucks, there was another game I forgot the name that used same drm, no sale here again.

Same. It's a pity too, I liked SH3 and it looked like a good game.

Nah, like SH4, SH5 was buggy. I'd wait anyway. The community is fixing the game.

Couldn't get into Mount and Blade. I wouldn't say the game had much of a learning curve, but more of a patience curve. And it was steep.

BTW, does anyone find it comical how the other day ARMA II + OpArrow were $12 on Amazon, and today OpArrow by itself is... $20 on Steam?

It changes everywhere. Some games were lower on Steam than they were on other sites. I stay away from Amazon. I saw that OpArrow was on there for 10 bucks a few days ago, but the customer reviews mentioned issues with key activations. I'm willing to pay a little extra (got OpArrow on Steam yesterday for $15.99 as I already own Arma II on there) to stick with a reputable service where I know the game will work and if not, it will be fixed quickly.

Can a few militias really stand against tanks, bombs and missiles?

Maybe not the definition of "militia," but North Vietnam did.....

Convince Rockstar to port Red Dead Redemption and all is forgiven. Gamers have short memories despite their claims otherwise

Now THATs the kind of thing i'd like to see - I don't see the point in MS maintaining exclusivity between 360 <-> PC. Obviously they're different markets.

You guys realize that you are asking for another console port, right?
You realise it would probably be a shitty port like GTAIV, right?

Hey, a shitty port is better than no game at all. Frankly, now that my 4 year old XBox fried and I can't play RDR at all, I'd prefer to play that shitty port.

Didn't they hire a modder to fix their game?

I don't know about a modder, but they hired a really bright project manager who has been known to get unfinished games up to good quality games. This 1.1 patch is a huge improvement compared to the stock version.

Heh, I even called it on here that it could be out in 2011, but no, there were skeptics!

Obviously this is just a rumor mill, but there is a chance of hope!

Yay for banning idiots from multiplayer.

Boo for that meaning they lose all access to the game after 30 days.

I don't think it's just MP. They were banning people for cheating in SP too.

I'm sorry, but Risen lost me after about an hour. I heard it gets better, but if you cannot make it engrossing right away, you need to make a better game.

Oh man, Bruce Lee, Bump n Jump, Spy Hunter, Beachead I and II, Epyx's Destroyer (best sim game I thought at the time), Silent Service, Impossible Mission (never could figure out how to beat it), Alien, Super Bowl Sunday, and so many more. The C64 was awesome back then!

Say what you will about him these days, Populous was a fucking amazing game, and definitely, imo, worthy of "AAA" status.

And IMO, Powermonger was an improvement on top of Populous.


Powermonger was REALLY good. Had many months of fun with that one

Otherwise you're going to run into crashes, more crashes, and more unknown crashes.

In FO3 I get crashes every hour almost on the nuts....

I haven't had a single crash yet and I played it on a 2008 HP Laptop

They've had these at our convenience stores in MN, but I have never seen them in grocery stores. I think the Buffalo ones are hotter followed by the Jalepeno ones. They had Wasabi Doritos at one time that were pretty spicy as well.

Is this really as good as Sins? What's the learning curve on it? If it is as addicting as Sins, I may have to purchase it. Nothing has topped Sins for me yet, but I do like similar games that introduce something new and different.
