I thought that there already was another, better, stop the invasion XCOM.

News Comments > Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic Expansion
2. Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic Expansion Aug 5, 2015, 11:16 Minuit
 
Unless I'm sadly out of touch, "Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic" was a series of two single player games originally published back in 2003 while "Star Wars: The Old Republic" is EA's MMO-Thingee.

While I would be happy to see Lucas Arts releasing more KOTOR even ten years late, it would be a bit surprising to see Electronic Arts releasing an expansion for a game that isn't even theirs.

If that's the case, and they don't have a game plan for how anyone will play this years from now if the servers go down... kind of screwed.

Sure they have a game plan. All you need to do is buy Star Wars Battlefront 2017. Then, when those servers are retired due to extreme age, buy the newly released Star Wars Battlefront 2018 instead.

We can hope. I'm as much a Battletech fan as the next guy but I've always wanted a PC version of the old FASA Crimson Skies. Or maybe even Renegade Legion.

You probably already know this but there was a PC version of Renegade Legion: Interceptor. It was a pretty faithful adaptation of the board game, and was only missing the important rules for how much damage you took when you accidentally knocked over the little cardboard box miniatures.

3. Maybe I`m just crazy, but... Jun 22, 2015, 10:42 Minuit
 
I usually wait three or four months before buying any game because by then I know it's probably going to work.

Apparently that's so systemic that it's stupid not to release broken games and have people pay for the joy of QA testing them.

"WARHAMMER Clue".

Now _that_ would be a game.

"It was Colonel Mustard, with the Choppa, in the Black Ark of Naggaroth!"

It is on Sony to provide a working set of drivers for these controllers not MS.

Right, and yet the article quotes Douglas Wilson as saying "We looked for experts to help us, and even got in touch with an engineer at Microsoft, who told us 'this is NOT possible in any way shape or form.'"

I'm not suggesting there's some kind of conspiracy at work, only that contacting MS for help with Sony hardware seems doomed to failure.

It's shocking that Microsoft Windows has support for Microsoft Kinect but somehow Microsoft engineers at Microsoft aren't working really hard on providing support for the Sony PlayStation Move controller, which could be used to replace Microsoft Kinect.

It's almost like they don't want to officially promote a competing product or something.

With Hatred being back on Steam, there's still a chance that Uwe Boll will make a movie based on it.

Reactivating your account will take only seconds. Patching the game so that you can log in... Well, better start now if you want to log in before the end of Christmas.

My only gripe is them selling paint jobs. Is that new, or had it been there before and I just missed it?

Other than that, it's all good...

They've been selling those for a while now, and they are only cosmetics. I am sure they will have sales on packs of those or get them as rewards in game etc.
They don't bother me as much as the different ship variants for $100+ for that other space game

Imagine if they did what Valve does and created a marketplace where players could submit content, and the devs take a small cut from each sale. That would be amazing. The market is already there. They could even implement some kind of system that mirrors the existing in-game market that allows the price of things to fluctuate automatically based upon demand, should the content creator set it up that way, and only allow a certain number of the items to be allowed into the market, or something like that.

If you were a good enough artist/modeler/etc, you could easily make back the money you put into the game (and then some), while helping out the developers as well. Why haven't they done this already?

Maybe the world just isn't ready for that many penis-shaped space ships.

Another month and a half before release? Looks like Crytek needs a few more weeks to serve all 11,500 dinners to their team.

And I'm willing to bet the EXACT SAME people who toss these comments ALSO wonder why they can't find a girlfriend, or complain that their girlfriend won't play games with them.

There's even proof of that.

I always wanted to get into this, can someone point me to some good graphical mods (and others) that they use?

If you're just getting into this, the Lazy Newb Pack (or one of its descendants, since it is a bit out of date) is a good place to start.

Because of the... um... somewhat challenging user interface, it is strongly recommended that you watch a recent tutorial video or read the O'Reilly Book on the subject.

Let me see if I'm following this right...

"Yes, you can play the game if you like but if you want to win you will need to spend more at our online store than anyone else." -- That's EA.

"As I hope you’ve noticed, these rules are making attempts to prevent Minecraft servers becoming “pay-to-win.” We hate the idea of server hosts restricting Minecraft’s features to players who have already bought our game! It seems really mean." -- That's 'Literally worse than EA'".

I'm trying to find definitions of "better" and "worse" which fit these two data points, but it's making my head hurt.

Wildone wrote on May 30, 2014, 16:36:
Then you'd be in jail, its classified.
That would just mean that nobody could say that the game wasn't accurate without being investigated by one or more three letter agencies. They could put Cookie Monster and a gum-ball machine in the cockpit and nobody would be able to prove that it wasn't accurate.
