Obviously this has nothing to do with the cheesey-yet-entertaining Emilio Estevez vehicle from the '80's

Looking forward to it but I don't think any game can ever top the introduction of HL2 and Source at that past E3

I heard White Gold is a fail. Precursors got decent reviews in the Easter Euro press but, then again, they have totally different tastes than the West.

God damn this argument is stale. Games are games, stop trying to fit them into a more respectable category to make yourself feel better about the fact you're an adult playing videogames. Enjoy them for what they are.

I don't see anything about being able to blast through rock. Being underground you'd think they'd allow at least SOME terrain deformation but it looks like its still gonna be only structures.

It is fun but you'll need a really beefy system to get to a playable frame-rate. My system is about 3 yrs behind but its still can run Crysis etc with almost all settings pegged. This game though just brings it to its knees. I've tried many different settings and drivers but it doesn't help.

They did this with BF2 as well. Vehicles are part of what makes this IP so great. If I wanted infantry only I'll go back to CoD.

I know there are a ton of people who claim they pirate because they cant afford the games, yet the same kdis always seem to have PC's that can run Crysis at max settings, and have a mobile phone that costs more than my car.
If you could pirate mobile phones, then I'm sure mysteriously a lot of them would not eb able to afford to buy phones either. Its a question of choosing where to spend your money.
If you chosoe to spend all your cash at starbucks and pirate all your games (for example), then expect to get lots more branches of starbucks and far fewer games in future.

Cliff, I appreciate your opinion and mine would probably be the same if I were a developer as well but don't you think the piracy issue affecting sales is a tad overplayed? Don't you think falling sales numbers are due to more people choosing consoles over a desktop? The fact is desktop PC's are becoming obsolete in many ways and kids growing up now tend to use laptops or phones for functions that used to be mainly done with a desktop PC. Like music, the market is simply in transition and it's up to developers and publishers to find creative ways to market their products instead of finding ways to keep an old and inefficient model in place. Part of that is serving the needs of paying customers and not getting so caught up in a group that *probably* wouldn't have bought said products in the first place. I know it's getting stale to bring them up as an example but Valve has shown that serving the needs of their core customers is a far more profitable way to go than pissing people off with DRM that is NEVER EVER going to stop piracy.

How about focusing on giving your paying customers real service instead of getting butthurt over people who weren't going to buy your product anyhow?

BTW, how about learning the difference between "stealing" and "using without permission". One implies taking something for which there is no replacement. Digital products are infinitely reproducible.

I gotta disagree, I thought ME2 improved on the gameplay immensely. Then again I'm more of a shooter fan than RPG.

Anyway, Bioware hasn't done much multiplayer so I'll be curious to see what they come up with.

he's leaving because of Disagreements with Steve Ballmer over the 'Courier" tablet.

Of course Ballmer has been doing such a fantastic job of anticipating what people want that longtime customers bailing on Windows to Mac must all be part of a bigger scheme on his part.

and the thing is, the industry suits will see that 3rd as lost revenue and look for ways to railroad more folks into coughing up cash rather than giving them a real reason to buy.

Free Portal is a brilliant move on Valves part to get more folks to install STEAM.

I love seeing the naysayers of the "free" business model get slapped down like this.
