This looks a lot like the world teased when Epic showed off the next revision of the Unreal Engine Tech... Thoughts?

1. Re: MW2 Ghost Spin-off? Nov 16, 2009, 10:24 Tex8503
Sounds like an expansion DLC campaign to me... maybe something that bridges the 5 year gap and ... *SPOILER*maybe it'll cover how Price gets into the Gulag and his relationship with Makarov prior to the game.

Make no mistake... SOMEONE is paying for the game... in this case - Gamespy is... Probally very cheap for them over all (remmeber how tribes 2 was limited... they probally paid for a limited ammount of copies that corrosponded to certain keys...)...

Vivdeni wins because it promotes their new games...
GSI wins because they get lots of hits for their advertisements...
Gamers win because you get FREE GAMES...

Tell me how this is a bad thing ?

I wonder if they will release the limited release expansion for free...?

#1 - Yes. Yes you are.

#2 - "Yah a new alien race? I think I will pass.
TY EA for ruining the C&C Series."

What the HELL are you babbling about...? Both Tiberium Sun and Tiberium Dawn refered to the alien race - my guess was always that they would show up and it would be humanity uniting to take the planet back. The idea of an Alien race in the C&C universe was setup from day one and not a ploy from EA to destroy the world as we know it.

I'm not a huge fan of EA's buissness tactics - but you need to give the devil credit when its due. Here's to hoping it won't suck like generals.

I saw nothing wrong with CS... its just outdated as far as the engine goes... and HL 2 will fix that because it will ship with an updated version of CS... which is why patching CZ is stupid. CS was never ment to be single player. I honestly don't see the point.

This game was probally one of the most fun of last year IMHO. It was fun. Something not many games can claim. I would have liked to see a multiplayer mode in kinda the way "The Specalist" mod for half-life worked, where bullettime was a all player effecting powerup.

Good story. Good gameplay. All around lots of fun and very underappricated.

The thing is ... there is now a free base to work from.. Hell you could implement Stright DM into the game - no problems. Any restriction has been lifted and you should open youself to the biggest played base imaginable because its a FREE GAME.

Hahahahhahahaha... Here we go again.

Why is it seem like 3000AD is one of the only devlopers to have consistant problems with publishers ?

The problem here is that while Dreamcatcher may be in the wrong - I understand their position. 10 to 1 someone over there looked at the game and said " This is a niche game - crap. Well Lets lower the price to get those people who buy cheap games to look at it." It may have been in violation of the original agreement - but thats for a court to decide. Mr. Smart realizes the market that he is apart of. The Fact he hasn't realized that publishers won't cater to him is astounding. He has the ability to become one of the first successful self-publishers. Sell the game on the net and Via Cd.

By comming out and saying he won't patch or support the game if its released at this price point only will hurt the game. Can't he see that ?

I'm fed up with this shit and I don't even buy his damn games. Hell, No one ever had these problems with interplay and they were evil incarnate.

4. Best. Move. Ever. Jan 27, 2004, 22:39 Tex8503
Ok... Any mods that had any question about what game to design for should have their questions answered.... Up until now - a inital purchase was required for any game to be able to use a mod - however Wolfenstein ET is a FREE game so any mod devloped for it dosen't require any base platform - it could consieveably have the biggest mod user base ever if modders take advantage of it...

Rise of Nations ownz. Just as simple as that. far superiour over spam build RTSs and super weapon crazy RTSs. This game stands alone when it comes to great Real time strategy games.

I won't believe it untill I hear it from valve.... Of course... then I won't believe that untill i see it on a shelf.... of course I won't believe that untill I actually have the box in my hands and pay for it.... and I STILL won't believe it untill I'm actually playing the damn thing.

Those game devlopers are tricky bastards.

News Comments > Halo Status Report
35. FOR THE LAST TIME... Sep 12, 2003, 17:30 Tex8503

Halo (much like HL2) uses Pixel Shader 2.0 .. ATIs cards work ok with PS2.0... Nvidia's do not. They are working on a driver fix. Damn it, If your gonna bitch about a game that hasn't been released, atleast bitch at the right people. JUST RELAX and wait for nvidia to release the detonator 5.0 drivers and the PS2.0 problem will be resolved.

and BTW.. the ammount of time a game has been out dosen't make it any less fun to play.

14. Re: Sierra... Sep 1, 2003, 04:17 Tex8503
The second they canned Babylon 5 - into the fire ... and a shit load of games and teams, you got an idea of EXACTLY where the company stands. They ARE hemeraging money and someone from the company does somthin stupid like that, and it makes you question the integredy of the people workin there. After that B5 debocal - I swore off sierra games, making an exception only for half life and now HL2. I hope valve finds a new publisher because it makes me sick that I'm helping to support the scurge of the industry.

I would like proof that sierra is listening to a damn thing anyone in any of their various communities has said

ya... getting frustrated is one thing... mouthing off to customers is another. Sierra does suck, they aren't the only game in town and they aren't the best either. Poor buissness decisions, Poor marketing, and little attention to community have turned sierra from a innovator to the brink of value ware.

... And is proof that a game dosen't need state of the art visuals to be a good game.

Don't forget that Good graphics are not more important then good gameplay !

Its the gamer's golden rule !
