I have a PS2, but the only thing I use it for is Madden NFL and other sports games. 90% of my game time is PC, I've tried other console games, but to me they just suck. I don't care if you get off on your xbox, gcube, ps2, or PC. That's everyone's own choice. What I don't like is when my PC games get dumbed down for consoles, or like Halo don't even get PC treatment first. I don't like how many of the good developers are making games for xbox instead of PC now, and then porting over their game to PC later, without bothering to include simple PC game features such as save anywhere, better textures, etc.

I tried to play this game on a P2 550 and a voodoo 3. It really didn't like the Voodoo 3. I'll have to dig it up and see if it likes the radion any better. Man, since no really good newer games have come out besides Vice City and Enemy Territory, it's become nastalga time! I got that new model mod for System Shock 2 and the patch for Anachronox and it's been old gaming ever since. Might as well dig up Serious Sam and continue the trend.

I saw a trailer from this game, and man, I was really blown away. The game looked WAY better than what my expectations for it were. I hadn't really heard of it or followed it until I saw the trailer, now I'm probably going to buy it. That corkscrew weapon just looks too cool to pass on!!

Playing death frisbee ought to be cool, too. Where's the disc golf mod? And the frisbee football mod? Seems like a good game to mod. Jumping puzzles scare me, not because I necessarily hate them, but because I hate re-loading...

Still, Monolith's on a roll, I'll bet the game turns out great.

I wasn't really interested in Men of Valor OR Call of Duty when I first heard of them. Another war game, yawn...but I have to admit, some of the previews and screens I've seen lately are slowly changing my mind. I skipped the first two Vietnam games that came out, but 2015 I've liked ever since they did the Sin expansion pack.

I'll probably wait to read some reviews, and add me to the list of people who don't find "racial issues" a very compelling form of gameplay...

Max Payne 2.....Man I have high hopes...

If Max Payne 1 blew The Matrix out of the water, imagine what this game's gonna do. I hope it's longer than the first one, and I hope to see more models for enemies. Less cheese with the plot sandwich wouldn't be bad for digestion, either.

Um, hello?? Anything HalfLife 2 can do is ALSO because of the engine. Don't you get it? Also, id is the ones who decided to release ET free, not Activision. Activision wouldn't release anything free if they had their way. Until you can see what the doom 3 engine can do in the way of physics, and how it ends up comparing to halflife2's, what do you really know? Nothing.

You know, id is ultimately the people responsible for realeasing Enemy Territory to us for free. If they feel that they can give us that for free, I'm sure they have a few tricks up their sleaves for Doom 3. I get tired of hearing about how id can't make a game, and yet probably everyone here owns some or all of the id games. How quickly everyone forgets.

Halflife 2 will be outstanding. This does not mean that Doom 3 has to suck. In different ways, they are both going to bring us lucky gamers something we havn't seen before in games. And if we can get past the BS of one group of fanboys bashing the other group, I think we can admit that ALL of us are going to wind up playing both games.

yep, it's true, if your rig can handle it, you can increase a view range slider all the way to max. BTW, thanks for the link for the map of Faerûn! Thats cool how you can click on any part of it to get a close up! (And thanks, Blue, for the û!)

That's all it is, is models, and a few (very few) textures. Core gameplay is the same, and the models really look good in action! I hadn't played this game in like 3 years, but I'm going through it again, since this mod, and I am quite impressed. Absolutely nothing was done to change the gameplay. (Thank God!) Check it out!

LOL, you must be from Chicago.

They shouldn't even allow corked bats into stadiums. Players shouldn't even own ONE, much less take it to the plate in a Major League Game. Of course he's going to say it was an accident. What else would he say when he's been caught red-handed? Sosa's no icon, he's a punk who uses a corked bat and takes steroids.

This is going to be a long post, cause I'll try to quote everyone and add my thoughts. If you have ADD, just skip to the parts that you recognize as yours.

I loved Baldur's Gate 2 on so many levels, one of the things I liked best was the character development and the whole storyline.

I wholeheartedly agree with you. I had all three girls in my party at the same time for most of the game (Jahera, Airee, and Viconia) just to hear them fight over me!! I also thought the love interest things added a great touch, and really touched emotions in me that no computer game had in the past or since. Sure, it was a little corny, but the lines were delivered with such sincerity that you could overlook that. The personal touches that the dialog brought to the game really added to the overall immersion factor. I think you're probably right, it HAD to be a professional author/playwriter behind the scenes.

LordSteev - I 100% agree

Perhaps you'd like to join my Fan Club? No dues, you just have to write "Im a supporter of the "Unleash the Fredster!!" Fan Club in your sig.

While I can't think of any way that the Baldur's Gate story could be reopened in any plausible way, it is still kinda sad to think that in all likelihood, Bioware will never again produce an RPG of such quality and scope.

Amen, Creston. I can't think of any role playing game that has spent as much time on story and content, along with great game play, than BG2. I too have high hopes for KoTOR, but the fact that it's a cross-platform release for consoles scares me somewhat. Say what you will about consoles, most console gamers aren't as mature as PC gamers, and content gets dumbed down for them. I have a PS2, and bought Baldurs Gate Dark Alliance for it because it had the name Baldurs Gate in it. It was almost a third person hack'n'slash with jumping puzzles. Built on a rail. Even so, I STILL have high hopes for KoTOR, because at least it's coming to PC and it's from a very talented group of individuals. Keeping my fingers tightly crossed.

LordSteev, awesome post, I totally agree with you. I hated NWN for the same reasons.

Thank you! Please see Fan Club Information above. Yep, neverwinter nights (no caps for crap) had so many flaws, at least to me, that it couldn't hold a candle to BG. Not just the engine, but even the story was only average, and some of the reasons for doing the side quests were just plain stupid. And the voice acting!! That Paladin chick Arabella or whatever her name was, god, every time I heard her go of in her imperialistic tone, I just wanted to bludgen her with a cudgel, lol..

On that note i completed BG2, but only by cheating. I dont know wether it was me but it seemed every time i entered a battle (And im not kidding here) i would get hit by a confusion spell or some sort and then have to reload and specifically targets those that i know would be casting the spells and even then it was 50/50.

Yea, the confusion spells were VERY annoying, especially early in the game when your saves weren't high yet and your clerics didn't have the right spells to counter. A few things to make it more bearable: If your characters have high wisdom scores, they have a better chance to resist mind spells. I found that I had to play with both Airee and Viconia in my party, just to have enough "clear thought" spells to cast on my fighters before sending them in against mages. Dispell Magic works wonders, too. One place that was super frustrating early in the game was at some little runt house you had to clear out in the docks area. You go in the house, it's a small room, and the two mages would start casting confusion right away. Archers work great against spellcasters, and so did Jahera's Insect Swarm, but that took a long time to get with her.

That's why I was pretty stoked to see the new Greyhawk game that Troika is developing. Really looking forward to that one.

Hahaha, the Temple of Elemental Evil! Just gotta love that name! I've got high hopes for this one, too. Troika has never put out crap. I'm looking forward to the turn-based play, too, esp. since they say that all the monsters will take their turns at the same time to speed it up some. I like turn based games, too, but for some reason, I really liked the way Baldurs Gate handled things. Heck, I hit the space bar so often in those later, hairy battles, that it might as well have been turn based! ToEE is the highest RPG currently on my looking forward to list, followed by Lionheart and KoTOR. Not to mention Vampire-Bloodlines, but that one is going to take a lot longer than the ones mentioned. And if you count Deus Ex 2 and Thief 3 as roleplaying games, well, hehe, good time to be a gamer!

It saddened me when I heard BG3 would not be developed. I did not play NWN or IWD, my loyalitites to the BG series are that strong. No, I will not play a BG game on a console either. I love BG/BG2, I can only hope beyond hope a BG3 will come.

It saddened me, too. I don't think your missing anything by skipping NWN, but that's just my opinion. As far as Icewind Dale, it's like a poor man's Baldur's Gate. Not anywhere near as much or as good of a story, but the same game engine, and even more enemies. Very challenging. One thing I'll say, is that while the Baldur's Gate series just kept getting better and better, the Icewind Dale series did the opposite. IceWind Dale 1 was actually a very fun game. It's expansion pack was short and not quite up to the quality of the original. IWD 2, while offering some unique character classes, didn't really captivate me at all compared to the first one.

Whew, ok, I'm done!


EDIT: Whoops! Guess not!


On a different note, I have to agree with all the NWN vs. BG comparisons. I found the NWN campaign (even when played co-op with my wife) tremendously dull. I've played some decent user mods, but the engine itself drives me crazy, from the sameness resulting from a tileset driven schema to the obnoxious henchman code. NWN felt very much like BG-lite.

I agree, the engine is WAY too clunky, and the haphazard and boring 3d environments dont help, but hurt the overall experience. I wanted to kill my henchman. Slowly. The only thing I would contest is that by calling it BG lite, you do a disservice to Baldur's Gate! ;)

O.K. Carpel Tunnel syndrome, here I come!

You know, the funny thing is, I LIKE the 2d backgrounds with either sprite characters or 3d characters. The artwork is always waaay better, nothing looks so blocky, you don't get stuck on railings, narrow stairs, etc...

I'm talking for roleplaying games only, naturally, not shooters.

I also like having six different characters under my control, instead of just one and some hack assistant who runs headlong into danger and off the map that is visible. I love the real time combat with the spacebar pause system, so you could assign your spellcasters with the spells you wanted them to use.

I guess I can understand that the Baldur Gate story is over, and what I really want is a fully rebuilt infinity engine from the ground up to support higher resolutions, better looking characters, better lighting, and better pathfinding. But leave the sweet, sweet gameplay intact!!

I really don't like the NWN engine in it's current state. It reuses the same tilesets way too often, it seems like the areas all start to look the same. Control feels awkward. Bleh.

I could really go for a new infinity engine with a game based on Wheel of Time or something. It had enough interesting and diverse characters to form a party of six easily, with all bases covered. I wouldn't like an exact recreation of the book, though, but the character choices would work for me. Oh well, back to dreaming....
