They should package a big cowboy hat and a wifebeater shirt with these games. Fits the bill.

Do these people even know what a computer is?

Celtic Kings...ok we're doing good so far. Punic Wars...still doing - No wait! Punic Wars? Not good. Someone got their history messed up and has placed to poor Celts in Northern Africa, a place where they do not belong..to hot for them down there...

Doesn't the title seem wierd to anyone else?

Maybe they should let people buy each level seperately, just to confuse them further...

What is this shit? 3 versions, and that not including Steam. I can understand trying to reach a wide audience, but this is a bit too much.

Hey Craw, why do you assume that all the forum members are assholes? From what I've seen of the Relicnews forums (not much), they're pretty self-controlled and reasonable. Again, as I've said, you shouldn't tell the community they are incosequential, especially when these are your die-hard fans. Their dedication to the game and the community should mean something, and not simply be blown off with "Who cares about you, we've got plently of other customers". It fosters a sense of community, which is always good for the game. Look at the difference mods make these days. Being nice to and supportive of your community makes them want to work on mods for your game and fosters customer loyalty.

I'm speaking from experience. I'm a member of what left of the Freespace 2 community, and despite the fact that Volition has (through no fault of their own) abandoned the game, we're still very much working on mods, campaigns and such. The game isn't selling very much, if anything, and the tech-support and mod support is virtually non-existant (it is non-existant on the latter count, and the former isn't really an issue). And yet, were Freespace 3 to be announced tommorow, we'de all be jumping for joy, and would dedicate ourselves to spreading the good word. Hell, I'm sure most of the modders would work for free on content for the game if asked to. Thats what loyalty is all about. You don't get that by telling your communtiy that they're not important.

And never tell the community that they are small and inconsequential. These are you biggest fans, the ones which go beyond just liking the game, and who truly take and interest in the continued development of the game series. I could understand if he was reffering to a 5 year old game, and even then its wrong to say that, but Homeworld is a big and successful franchise with a large community.

And I'de like to see these game which he claims have bigger sales potential than Homeworld 2. HalfLife2 and thats about it, I mean Homeworld is big...

The name probably makes alot more sense if you're German, or you know, an alien.

Strangley enough, I do know about this game, and I even know what its about. I saw a preview or something on Gamespydaily a few months ago..

And they're not doing me a favour. Its caled marketing. When you see a commercial on TV, is that company doing you a favour? See my previous post. This way, everyone is happy, so what the problem.

But this way, both FP subscribers aswell as everyone else is happy. If it was exlusive, only the subscribers would be happy.

Perhaps I misunderstand, but why is a solution where by 100% of the population is happy worse than a solution where by 20% (maybe, and thats pushing it) is happy? You still get the same demo, and you get it earlier. You can download from FP servers with no lines and fast speeds, so your money is well spent. The only difference to you, the FP subscribers, is that you are no longer special. And you no longer get to taunt people who do not have the demo.

Its really the same for you, and its better for us, so whats the problem?

Well, without going into a lengthy discussion, its not very different. They have the right to boycott, just as we do.

However, I think you can see the difference between fanatical obedience to the Bible, and wanting free demo downloads.

Sorry, I noticed afew typos, and without the dit feature, I need to repost in order to clarify. Here are the last 2 paragraphs again, right this time.

__

What I think it comes down to is this. Businesess (the bigger ones) will go to whatever lengths they need to, in order to make as much money as they can. This is a fact. When those actions, undertaken in order to profit them, start inconveniencing me, than I must deicde how far will I let them go. How long will I remain a pacifist. It is very easy to call me a zealot, even though you have no reason to think that. It makes you believe that my arguements have no logical foundations, and you can simply disregard them without much thought.

I for one, try to understand your point of view. And I would like you to do the same.

No. My morals are not flexible. They are very solid. That is to say, they would not change depending on the situation. If I was Microsoft, I would feel that people are justified in stelaing from me. You also say that I care about no one but myself? Then why exactly did I go through all the trouble of making a series of posts which I think speak out on behalf of others, to help them out?

Companies will do whatever they can to make as much money off of me as they can. Do you atleast agree with that? Then, why should I not try my best to stop them. I do not live my life based on the philosophy of any movie. Maybe you should see my post back in the old thread.

You also say that I'm only looking out for myself, which I find quite ironic, since you go to such great lenghts to defend big businesess, who's main philosophy is "Look out for yourself, screw everyone else."

I just don't think that you understand what I'm saying. I feel that certain laws, certain codes, certain principles in society are unfair. It is my right to believe so. And, it is also my right to ignore any such rules, since I had no part in their making. I never agreed to them.

Yes, but then again, who do you believe should get the benefits for a given deal (if any): the consumer or the company. I have more sympathy for the users than I do for the likes of Microsoft (Gamespy is not included in this). I have no problem stealing from them, since I know they would, and have, done the same to me. Basically, though I do care for small and medium businesess, I care more about the consumer than I do about Microsoft or a recording label (to put it in the context of stealing music). Who determines what is a "fair" price? What is minimum wage? What are fair business practices? Not me. So, since I wasn't consulted, I see no reason to obey those laws, if it comes to that. If something is illegal but not immoral, I'll do it. And vice versa.

No, I don't derive my philosophy from a movie. The movie does a good job of expressing some of my beliefs. I thought of the philosophy first, then stated the movie as a good example of the philosophy. So, instead of typing up 10 pages, I simply tell you to watch the movie, which will have the same effect, and possibly communicate my ideas better than I could.

But no one is going to force Gamespy out of business. Do you know how many sites they run? Or how many people pay for their Arcade products? And how developers pay to use their Arcade products. And how many people subscribe to Fileplanet? This isn't going to make subscribers leave, its just not going to make people sign up based on the merits of getting a signle demo. Aside from the exclusives, their service to subscribers is the same as others get for free.


As for caring this much about politics. I would be delighted if everyone cared as much about politics as they do about this. I do, but then I live in Canada so I really have no voice in America to affect change, though I have quite a few things to say.
