Pyro also did Praetorians, which was sort of like Total War with less units (and a different style for the turn-based mode). I for one liked it, though it was a bit hard. You could have like 300-400 units fighting, which was pretty cool.

I wouldn't say it was a cheap knock-off of the Total War series, it had some very unique gameplay. This to me looks like Praeorians^3, which is a good thing, since they are able to put more units in to the fray as the technology advanced.

Yeah, it does look like Napoleon: Total War, but I think that Pyro is fully capable of producing a game of as high quality of Rome: Total War. And I doubt the gameplay mechanics will be too similar.

[iWhat do you mean "didn't really need him."? This country needs many more people like him. Brave, fearless, following his conviction, sacrificing personal gain, putting his life on the line for the greater good. I envy people like him.

Your comments sadden me. I know this a video game site, but damn, at least he did something. (a very BIG something) Your coldness indicates a certain lackadaisical value on human life. Maybe you take for granted the freedom you have, or do you think it just "happened" to you? Yes?

Throwing around words like freedom, partiotism, duty blablablabla, its like you're quoting FOX "News". He died for several reason. Number one, to exact vengance on an innocent population for the actions of a few people in the government. Two, to stuff the coffers of Halliburton et. al. And three, to establish a US military presence in Afghanistan, and set up a puppet government.

The insurgents in Iraq, atleast they're fighting for their country. To liberate it from occupation. To say that US soldiers in Afghanistan and Iraq are dieing for their country is absurd. Both wars were clearly offensive not defensive.

But thats enough for now. We've been over this many times before...

What, they've got little Tommy who thinks he's 1337 doing their press releases now? Using the word "own" is bad enough, but they just had to put it all in caps.

Creston: the US is blamed for Israel's actions becuase they give huge amountws if military aid to Israel, as well as striking down any move by the UN to condemn Israel. Without the US, Israel would not be able to occupy Gaza and the West bank. Hell, America is practically run by Jewish lobby groups. Just look at the current administration. Its like Sharon personally hand-picked each one.

Hamas *was* created by Israel. Its a well documented fact, so you don't have to take my word on it.

If Israel gave the Palestinians a home state, there would be peace. Funny how all these militant groups formed in response to the occupation. Gaza is occupied territory, capture in 1967. It really nice that you have such a romantic vision of thing B. Israel is the white knight in shining armour, flawless and blameless. And Hamas are demonic hordes of cazed suicide bombers, just waiting for the next chance to strike. Actuualy, now that you mention it, Hamas does have a sizeable charity operation. They distribute food, medicine, support hospitals and schools. But that never gets reported by the Western media, now does it.

I agree though that the Russian would qualify as terrorists also. Chechnya is a fucking crater cause of them. Putin is an old KGB operative, he's not too big on negotiation. In fact, he's a cold-hearted killer.

next up, Battlefield: Tashkent.

Israel created Hamas. Please don't give me that crap about "driving the Jews in to the sea". Israel created Hamas to counter the more moderate PLO. Now, why would they create an extremist organization to take away influecne from a moderate one? Becuase the PLO could concievable bring about the conditions whereby Israel would be forced to give the Palestinians a home state.

And the concept of collective punishment was rejected way back after WW2. You can't punish the Palestinian people becuase of Hamas. As it stands, the Palestinians are living in squalid conditions in the ghetto called Gaza. Almost no infrastucture, checkpoints everywhere. Hell, they went all out and put in a wall.

Hamas responds to Israeli attacks with suicide bombings. Israel responds to suicide bombings with more attacks. You can't possibly claim that Israel is free of guilt. The IDF is as much a terrorist organization as Hamas.

They can act with impunity because they have the US backing them. The whole world has condemned Israel's actions, except ofcourse the States.

Ottoman Empire: yeah, that was hundreds of years ago. In modern times I meant. There are too mant divisions along ethnic lines.

OPEC: OK, thats a very bad example. Not only does OPEC include nations which are nowhere near the Middle-East, it is also an economic allinace (Organization of Petroleum Exporting Counties), not a political one. Furthermore, many Middle-East nations are not part of OPEC, since they do not export petroleum.

And Israel kills more civilians than all Palestinian militants put together. They just do it from helicopter gunships and wish tanks. There is no difference. Hamas exists because the Palestinians don't have an army. If killing civilians is the measure of terrorism, as it should be, than Israel and the US are among the worst terrorists on Earth. You see alot of "crazy Arabs" on TeeVee 'cause that is exactly how the media wants to portray them. They never show American soldiers killing civilians, and even go so far as to condemn certain news organizations for showing the truth.

Middle-East Coalition? WTF?!

Guess dem camel jockeys all look alike, right?

Jeez, I'm tired of these poorly put together alliances just so you can make a all-ecompasing enemy faction. Same thing with the GLA in Generals. If the Muslim world was going to unite, they would have done so already. There are deep religious, not to mention ethnic conflicts between various "Middle-East" nations.

It would have been better to include the Russians and the EU. They are atleast plausible factions. I suppose that for the sake of "racial purity", this new "Middle East Alliance" does not include Israel. Guess its easier to mow 'em down when they're all dirty filthy terrorist Muslims, not out civilized, benign friends in Israel.

Oooh, maybe in the expansion pack..

I started to get very worried aftrer they canned their NWN-like RPG. I can't think of the name right now, but its on the tip of my tounge. Canceling games is bad business, and they're really made it a tradition.

Ah well, maybe they'll seel off the rights to Freespace 3. But Volition is still under the THQ tyranny, so they're stuck pumping out crap instead of making the stuff of legends as they should be doing.

Right, I'm not American. No one is fighting and dieing for me. I also don't like McDonalds and the whole corporate culture surrounding it. In fact, these brave, heroic soldiers which you speak of, are responsible for much of the world's problems, and also have caused me personally quite a bit of harm. I don't want them going anywhere, I want all US troops at home where they belong, not going on imperial adventures around the world. Not occupying miitary bases in 130 countries worldwide. You make the mistake of assuming everyone who posts here is American, or supports America.

"A third of the country's young people have an elevated view of the Army, not foremost for anything it's actually done lately, but because of the computer game they played, which just simulates it."

Alright, someone get a dictionary, cause I do believe this is a textbook definition of propaganda. And successful propaganda at that.

oh wow, another one. And with a sub-par (from the looks of it) engine to boot.

_____

No, not every German soldier killed Jews. But every single one who carried out his orders was an accomplice. Just like every American soldier is responsible for his army's (not his as a possesive, his as in the one he belongs to) actions in Iraq and elsewhere. Even if he's at home or stationed in say, Japan, he has consciously joined an organization responsible for much suffering.

You can't really be neutral on the sbject of the Holocaust. If you were part of the German army, its quite clear that you were a supported of the Nazi regime and their actions against the Jews.

...the game has actually had me interested for awhile. The art reminds me of Beyond Good & Evil. Hope it doesn't eventually end up getting dropped.

Yup. Its looked cool so far.

And to the person who said that games that get canceled suck, let me remind you that Fallour 3, Baldurs Gate 3 and a millions other awesome games got canned. These are just the ones that are fresh in my memory.

Agree with everything thats been said.

I'de wager my life savings that these guys are busy making KumaWar: Israel. See how many Palestinains you can pick off, then see how you stack up against other players around the world. Silly towel-heads, stop fighting against your liberation. The IDF loves you, loooooves you. Hey, come back here!!
