Universal Combat Expansion

This press release announces plans for Universal Combat: Hold the Line (thanks Frans), a Universal Combat expansion, while simultaneously, somewhat confusingly, heralding the end of the short-lived UC series (which was planned as the new Battlecruiser franchise), saying the previously announced UC: Edge to Edge is now a working title, and that the game's official title will be unveiled later this year. Meanwhile, here's the announcement of Hold the Line, planned for release this holiday season:

We have no immediate plans to develop another stand alone Battlecruiser title in the short term. As such, today we are announcing the above currently in progress addition to the Universal Combat franchise. Our aim with UCHTL is to improve on various critical aspects of the previous title in order to provide an even more advanced and fun title based on lessons learned from the previous offering.

Probably the last of its kind in the Battlecruiser series as we have come to know it, we are making UCHTL the all-encompassing game with as much advancements and fun filled gameplay in first person planet-side careers as is currently seen in the space borne careers. An extensive FAQ which will be frequently updated to reflect inbound questions, is located at www.3000ad.com/products/uchtlfaq.html .

So any more captions for the tee's then ? (if we're gonna do it, we should at least do it right)

How about:

"My other T-Shirt is a bogus degree"

"If you think my last game is ugly, you should see my new one"

"I'm standing next to stupid" (with the arrow pointing upwards)

Oh how I laughed like a little girl...

Hmm t-shirts. Now theres an idea. "I got flamed by Dr. Derek Smart and all I got was this lousy t-shirt." On the back: "Feel the love! You wanker."

I'd buy one of those!

    "Ah yes, a typical news day at the [hog] farm for 'tards."

    No wonder this title went straight to the bargain bin! Now that's marketing. This is the kind of developers all publishers dream of having. Why a grown man would post such nonsense is beyond me. This is what you call professionalism. His behavior explains why he had to pretend to have a PHD. If as a business man and a developer he post stuff like this it's safe to assume he could never make it through a PHD program.

    For the love of pete, Derek, you can't design games. You suck. Find another profession where you can take your phony PhD. Give it a rest already.

    Alex Garden said it best when it came to Homeworld; "the game speaks volumes about how comitted we are to making a great game".

    DS - "the game speaks volumes about how comitted I should be".

    At the very least, I'm glad that none of you abject wankers can play my games; because then, this is the kind of crap I'd have to put up with.

    Would these be the same abject wankers who didn't buy your product which required you to run to mommy whining for an increase and advance on your allowance?

    Would these be the same abject wankers who made sure that companies like Blizzard, Relic, Raven and more had money to continue successful franchises because they were of the best quality AND were superb at supporting both their paying customers and future customers?

    Would these be the same abject wankers who, as gamers and then game reviewers, roundly panned your sorry little attempts in Basic to make a "game"?

    You've stated that you didn't make your "game" for the masses. Fine, niche markets can support small titles very well. However, even niche games make enough of an effort to appeal to new gamers to increase their market share. You couldn't give a fark less. So long as someone kisses your ass and tells you what a great "game" your heaping, steaming pile of crap code is, you're fine. A normal, concerned gamer who legally purchased your game with hard earned cash expresses dislike for the problems they are encountering and you act like someone raped your dog and then set it on fire.

    In a way, this makes me feel dirty that you are in the same community and profession as I am. Because people on the outside look at your tantrums and screaming as represenative of how ALL gamers and game developers act.

    Alex Garden said it best when it came to Homeworld; "the game speaks volumes about how comitted we are to making a great game".

    Your game speaks volumes in regards to your commitment as well.
