There's a walkthrough in the readme.

Was looking forward to this demo, and am a bit disappointed. The worl dis nice enough, but there isn't the attention to detail that I've seen in other adventures like Siberia.

Biggest stupidest thing in this demo, (besides the amateur voice acting), was with Miranda. She's your travelling companion, but when you move from the beginning until you meet this other guy in the next scene, she's not there!! You look around while you move and you're all alone and suddenly she's right there when you meet this other guy.

How f-ing lazy can they get??

It amazes me how hard these guys try to get people back into their games. I really feel for them! I got an almost too personal letter from David Bowman that made me try Horizons again just to relieve some of my guilt, lol. Lasted a couple of days.

AC2 just looks so darn cool, but I really couldn't get into it. Hopefully I won't fall for the pity routine and try again.

Played it. Looks stunning and the anims are top notch. Moves are very quick. 3rd person view though, so goodbye.

They should put a warning on the demo for these games in big red letters:

WARNING: This is a 3rd person RTS! You do not actually play the game, you give orders to AI that play the game for you!

This way I can save the 40 mins d/l time.

Played this. Seems just like the original, I didn't notice anything really new although I haven't played COD is a bit.

For me, I don't like the random deaths. Tried hardened first, died repeatedly. Went to the lesser difficulty, made it a bit farther, but there's still random shells that can kill you instantly. You'll be doing everything your're supposed to be doing and still die over and over. I was killing krauts with nice sweeping 50 cal work, killing 20x more than any ai, then suddenly BOOM, dead from mortar.

That's another thing, I didn't notice even one single dead kraut from any of the ai. I guess they did kill one or two, but usually it's 20 krauts and I apparently have to kill at least 18 of them solo - even when the ai are only 20 ft away from the enemy, they miss over and over. Kinda stupid.

Won't be buying this. Seems like same COD, just another day.

The intro movie and first cutscenes were worth the d/l alone. That said, the fact that it's 3rd person and fucking strategy ruins it for me. I don't WANT to command a troop and tell every fucking soldier what he's supposed to do or he just stands there like an idiot. I got enough responsibilities in RL and don't want to assume more in a game. Troops dying because you didn't tab before right clicking is not fun.

Also, 3rd person cut's the immersion by 80%. I wish these dev's would quit taking that shortcut, it's a cheesy way out.

We should get a huge 'Please don't suck' petition going and have every gamer sign it. Might help, ya never know.

Neocron is a game I've always felt that needs some friends. I actually thought it was a reslly decent idea and fun to play, just the worlds were so empty it got depressing after awhile. The game is set in a super-busy environment that would work famously if it were chock-full of players. The dev's are genious and did some awesome work besides. Gonna go d/l this now and see what's up.

I just had a moment of weakness and actually attempted to get a fileplanet account. No matter what I did it kept asking me to confirm my purchase of 85.95. Every page that came up had 5 or so 'yes! I DO want you to f%ck my email address up!' things I had to unclick.

F-that. I'll remain hardcore.

"The open beta is supposed to hit Fileplanet on monday."

Well f-me, I guess these turds are gonna force me to join the Fileplanet collective. I was doing so well, but now every turn in gaming leads to getting suckered into joining. What crap, guess I'll lube up and get it over with.

I agree with Rseman, I'm really enjoying the game as is.

I got the self-shadowing mod and the ungibbable mod running and that's it. Pretty darn cool. I use grenades for blind corners and shelves and bosses. They're fun in a room full of barrels too

For centuries, peace reigned in Middle Earth.. err Aegion. But ancient prophecies foretold the failing of Isildur, uhh the king and the rise of Sauron.. edit:Undrath, the Wraith Lord. Sauron, edit: Undrath gathered to him an army of unspeakable evil and, without a single king to unite them, Gondor, umm the Kingdoms fell.
