From http://www.google.com/search?q=battlecruiser+3000+release+date

Battlecruiser 3000 was released 9/30/1996.

From http://www.3000ad.com/products/bc3k.shtml

Almost 10 years in the making with millions of dollars spent on research and development of advanced technologies, Battlecruiser 3000AD is the only space flight sim that gives you everything you expect in the genre and more. Using advanced technologies in areas of artificial intelligence and accelerated 3Dfx graphics, Battlecruiser 3000AD adds enhanced gameplay to provide you with total immersion like no other game in the genre can. This is no short term shooter. This is an advanced simulation with unmatched replay value.

So, if after 10 years we get this:

http://www.3000ad.com/pics/bc3k/photo004.jpg

it takes another 9 years to get this??? WTF?

http://www.3000ad.com/pics/ucawa/08-03-05/PHOTO010.PNG

Anyone who is older than fifteen - and knows games - knows that MS Flight Simulator has been around since the early eighties and has progressed over the years and over NUMEROUS versions, to get to the shots you posted above.

So what happened to you? You call this progress?

Apart from that, when you have NO AI to speak of, nor any features other than to fly from A to B...

Yeah, thanks, but I know all about your game already.

I have already proved you wrong about the sprites for cities with a simple screenshot. Falcon 4.0 and every other simulation game uses the exact same technique. You cant render and entire city in 3D like a Quake map and expect people to have dogfights over it.

Which One Of These Is Not Like The Other?

Can you spot the 'niche' game that's been in development for over 15 years, requires DirectX 9, is a 'complex simulation' that has a steep learning curve, allows you to fly anywhere on the globe in complete freedom, and has a fanbase of more than 3 people?

And I second wanting the Greasemonkey script to remove Riley's jabbering.

I suppose I could give it a shot, but I'm rather limited in my Javascript skills... plus the comments page is pretty complex since there's a ton of HTML tables. However it can be done, since there's other GM scripts that create killfilters for various sites. I guess I'm up for a challenge!

Hang on, this is the guy that brought us Syndicate, Populous, Powermonger, and Dungeon Keeper. Yeah Black and White was a stinker, but hey, Spielberg made a crap movie here and there. Hopefully Pete learned his lesson this time. That said, bring on the demo! (Hey, gotta be cautious, just in case...)

And tell me that does not look photoshopped in too

Of course it's photoshopped, we all know that there is no way an actual, real, live girl would be playing video games. It's just a nerd fantasy. A myth, I tell you.

Sheesh.

Rumor has it the project was cancelled because they made all the pedestrian models look like a certain glory-hound asshole lawyer who lobbies against "killographic murder simulators".

Bah, humbug! Bring on Crashday!

With each Thompson story its becoming more and more apparent that he's going to have a public meltdown at some point.

<announcer> On the next episode of Celebrity Breakdown... watch your favorite media whores blow a gasket on national TV! </announcer>

[edit: forgot to mention that the Thompson Watch idea is cool. Nice one, Blue.]

It's simple. The media loves a circus, and its the clown who is its star attraction.

Although I bet Jack is lousy at making those little baloon animals.

How long would this take on a dialup connection?

Well, according to this page:

http://www.martindalecenter.com/AATimeCalc.html

the download would theoretically take someone on a 56k about 52 hours.

And thanks to Murphy's Law, if the download does not time out at the very last second, you would still probably end up with a corrupted file.

Valve might as well give up on TF2 (if they're even still developing it). I doubt they can bring enough new gameplay to the table to even compete with what's out now (BF2), and what will be out soon (ET:QW). They should just buy up the Natural Selection team and give that a proper boost.

That's right... Bully Bits are made of Mr. Happy. Now I'm all for not letting food go to waste, but I think I'm not the only one who gets all squeamish just at the thought of feeding this particular meat by-product to my pets.

Recycle, reuse, re...

I think I threw up a little bit in my mouth.

I played one of the demos... it seems very solid, with hardly any glitches/bugs. I don't play very many racing games, but this one seems like it would be better with a wheel. Nice graphics too. Two thumbs up.
