Master of Orion was Civilization in Sci-Fi. Master of Magic was Civilization in Fantasy.

So looking forward to this. I knew someone would eventually attempt it.

Index is 1 and 10. That's good news for VR enthusiasts. I hope it keeps going strong.

When OnLive died, all your games died with it.

I already don't buy from Gamestop or their store in my area: EB Games.

Why? From the anemic PC games section they have and the huge "used" console sections it's obvious how they make their money. I stopped buying from them ages ago. Then Impulse was sold to them. I have Galactic Civilizations II and both expansions on that: it's the only way to get them. I also bought those previous to Impulse's sale. Future purchases from Impulse? Not going to happen.

Gamestop may have been able to get away with this contractually, but you know what? I'm not contractually required to purchase a damned penny from them.

Same here. I even used to work at Software Etc. in '94 back when the 486/66 was the king of the processors. The walls/shelves were stocked full of PC titles and there were small sections here and there for Genesis, SNES and even 3DO. 16MB of ram was ~$200 and a 500MB HD was ~$500.

They lost my business the day Steam went live, mainly because I am lazy and don't like to come out of the basement. I was still buying used games for Gamecube and Wii, but this has made me not want to do even that now.

I also bought the GalCiv II games/expansions on Impulse,long before it was sold to Gamestop. In fact I just learned it was owned by them when I went to install the games for the first time in a long time last week.

Is there a way for me to download the install packs to store locally so I can install the game whenever I want without having to ever use Impulse again? If so, I will gladly do so.

Rarely do I have nerd-rage, but this is just ridiculous.

6. Why is his name in the title? Jun 15, 2008, 01:47 The Relentless
 
His last few games sucked. His name in the title probably does more harm than good.

RTS? I thought it was an action RPG like Dungeon Siege. Although I haven't paid much attention since the first announcement long ago...maybe it went in a new direction instead of the bloody click-fest repetition of those othe arpg games. Either way, meh.

I'd pay $9.95 per episode.

Maybe GameTap will acquire it, also.

I read a rumor in PC Gamer (this is from memory so prone to be off a bit) about an Asian magazine that accidentally leaked info on a Starcraft MMO.

This is the first I have heard of this game, and I am usually well informed on this crap.

This was posted on one of Gametap's designer's blog:

Oh me, where to begin? May 31 will bring lots of great new titles and features, including a whole new website where you can actually do stuff.

First, you might as well get used to referring to the GameTap you know and love as the Deluxe Player. In the past, weíve talked about design changes that you saw in the Deluxe Player. Now we get to talk about design changes youíll see there AND on the web AND in something new, the Lite Player.

Weíve been awfully quiet the past few months, working on a complete website/Deluxe/Lite experience that integrates a ton of features youíve asked for. Features like user ratings, related games, user profiles and avatars, forums, enhanced search, shared playlists, quick game launch, and more.

On May 31, the tap opens to full blast - all these features (and more), plus free games, retail games via digital distribution, brand new games free for subscribers the very same day they go retail, GameTap TV on the web.

So, today youíll see plenty of coverage out there talking about free games for people who donít subscribe. (All you subscribers - another new term - youíre GameTap Gold!) What does that mean for you? How about more challengers in popular free Challenge! games [Metal Slug and King of Fighters series, anyone?], more folks mixing it up in the new forums, and a generally expanded community of like-minded gamers. And only you get unlimited access to all the games in the catalog, whenever, wherever. Itís 24/7.

Itís way cool. (And itís been a crazy few months!)
