Crazily the original is only £7.97 from Amazon.co.uk, but the expansion is £19.99.

Even play.com have the expansion for £17.99, where did the $9.99 come from?

Man, Neocron 2 is hilarious. Most of the game itself isn't bad but the whole approach of the developers is laughable.

It had big issues throughout beta and was pushed out into retail still in a beta form. It's missing off the two major features that the new version was meant to have (One of which is player owned NCP item sellers) and they didn't magae to fix their serious issues from beta such as serious memory usage, framerate loss, missions working properly, epic runs being completable, hacknet working properly etc etc. 120 new major items are getting added into the game that haven't even been tested in the beta so the PvP balance will end up even more laughable.

It's a shame because the game does some things nicely but is spoilt by graphics five years out of date and riddled with issues and some bad design decisions.

At least they have pretty good treatment of players by the support team. None of the crap Sony like to pull and little forum censorship.

This is one weird ass game.

In some ways you can compare it to Beyond Good And Evil but it's a whole lot odder than that. It's twisted like all McGee stuff is but it's subtle.

Also the scrapland link now says: "ERROR! Not this new not exist!"

Man, I had a chance to play this and eugh.

For some reason they have some fantastic mappers/modellers/artists on the team and the levels are stunningly detailed. However, everything else sucks.

The bad guys are hilariously bad, terrible animation/pathfinding and virtually no AI, Serious Sam has better AI! Weapons and physics all feel weak and floaty which is a shame cause they have excellent models and skins. The levels are extremely linear and consist of... wait for it... finding the red/green/blue key. I thought we left that behind with Doom?

I have no idea if the plot is decent or not because I can't speak German.

Does anyone care?

This is an Irrational game we are talking about here!

Odd that they are doing it at the same time as T:V though, I didn't think they were big enough for developing two games at a time.

Thats pretty harsh. I don't think a lot of people would call Chris Sawyer an amateur at all. He's someone who's always put gameplay first and suceeded. Now he's made his name and all he could be working with a bigger team and flashy graphics but that kind of thing takes control of the game away from you. Keeping things small makes it easy to shape your game and is much less of a headache. A lot of things are more enjoyable as an amateur than a pro.

PC Gamer UK gave it 39% saying "If they can't be bothered to finish the game don't expect me to be bothered to give it a decent score."

Harsh but fair

Damn that was deceptive. I thought that was Bioware working with the Doom 3 engine!

Are you trying to trick us with this changing developer on the same line stuff Blue?

COOP MOD IS SAFE

I tried the coop mod and couldn't get it to work, then someone linked me to this article:

http://www.fpscentral.com/index.php?game=9&site=news&id=6521

Now, this interested me as it seemed pretty far fetched to imagine that a pk4 file would be capable of making the game read your CD key and somehow submit it to them, so I checked it out myself.

The contents of the pk4 file is a single file, maps.def. You can open this easily enough as a text file and examine the contents, it's just a plain maps list. No code.

The only way I could see people being able to steal your CD keys is by having a seperate .exe, I really doubt it's at all possible through pk4 files.

So unless there is another coop mod going around, the one on this site (Which is the same as the one on Gamershell) is perfectly safe (Although rather simple/buggy).

AnyOS is probably just making changes to the InstallShield OS check. I know several people have done it themselves.

4 hours?

It's at least 12 hours, on easy, if you rush it. Average play time is more like 18/20 hours.

Easy is too easy though, everyone should go for normal.

Hehe, strangely political item from the changelog:

- single player: fixed error in political system, which spawned only US units as enemies

There was a great caption in the PC Gamer UK review of Singles that said:

"Oh my God we're both totally naked!"

Well colour me suprised but the pictures there actually look fairly respectable and the keyboard/mouse setup looks *shock* like a practical and smart idea.

It now looks like there is actually a chance it might turn out reasonable... but even then I don't think there's really any market for their business model.

Blue:

You might want to change the quote. When it says "The demo was very impressive" I thought they were talking about Half Life 2 in someway (Like the recent playtests) but when I read the article I saw they were actually talking about the 'Ruby' tech demo for the new ATI card.

Confused me a bit

The problems experienced with the Multiplayer demo (Apart from connectivity) would be the same in singleplayer.

There is a hell of a lot of gameplay problems with this game. For a start they really need to make the vehicle handling have some resemblance to reality.

You have to declare it if you purchase a significant amount of shares, I believe it's anything over 20%. Stops people making quiet takeovers, you don't want just anyone buying a controlling interest in your company.
