Warlords was a great multiplayer game but, unfortunately, no one played it.

Speaking of movies, I finally got around to watching "District 9" and was very impressed.

The story had depth, humor and poignancy. Unlike many films that depend on CGI for the "wow" factor, it didn't draw attention to itself. It was used exactly how CGI should be used. To make the impossible believable.

IOW it is exactly what true sci-fi should be.

Given the overall quality of Rebellions work, I'm surprised they've lasted this long.

Other than Rogue Trooper and their first Alien vs Predator game I can't think of any title of theirs that is memorable.

Using quantum interference – the vibrations of the atoms themselves – the team was able to run the complete discrete Fourier transform extremely quickly by encoding the inputs into an optically tailored vibrational wave packet which is then run through an excited iodine molecule whose atomic elements are oscillating at known intervals and picked up by a receiver on the other side. The entire process takes just a few tens of femtoseconds

uh....yes? Undecided

great way to encourage your fanbase....simply sue them.

This is the whole "protect it or lose it" bullshit argument that attorneys have established to keep their slimy selves in business.

There are countless ways to resolve issues like this without having to litigate but none involve getting scumbag attorneys an opportunity to fill their pockets from both parties.

Tort reform NOW.

yes, unfortunately they didn't fall into the little corporate automaton yes-men that organizations like yours demands. Kotick wants his ass licked clean and he demands a damn good job be done of it......

I actually feel bad for these guys. They're trying to do the right thing but it looks like MTX wasn't ready for prime time.

Yah. It has the visual fidelity of EVE (even better) but its more combat focused. Hope I get in the beta

I played Planetside in Beta and played at release. Was TrevellianC22 on the Konried server. C22 was one of the best outfits on Konried pre-Core. Half the CR5's on Konried were in C22 for quite awhile. Core made us quit though. BFR ='d not fun. When they were first added. Completely ruined the infantry and armor game.

Core had some cool ideas but design-wise it was annoying. I bailed shortly after and never got a chance to check out the BFR's. Plus the population started dwindling. Not being able to experience hundreds of players fighting side by side took away the whole reason I was attracted to it.

just did a bit of checking.

The issue isn't MTX itself, its that the server supporting the system got hammered by 100k requests. They are now trying to set up something that will handle the demand.

Ya'll need to remember that these guys aren't getting paid a dime for any of this so be patient.

There hasn't been a game since Planetside that has the depth of tactical gameplay since its own inception. Sunday mornings watching an entire force of up to several hundred players per side with chain-of-command working like a well oiled machine was a sight to behold. Some of the best gaming I've ever experienced.

All I can think of is if they made the new one a little less sci-fi-ish it would succeed tremendously.

I love the fact that, in the end, Activision will be on the losing end of this whole mess. They may have the IP but they don't have the manpower that made it great.
