We don't need to sell that many copies to break-even

But the longer you wait in releasing it, the more copies you need to sell, and the less interest there will be. It just seems weird that a mod that one guy worked on was so cool to so many people, to the extent that they gladly forked over the 20+ bucks for Arma2, and now that they're working on a stand-alone version, they just can't get it out the door?

I'm thinking some massive feature creep has set in.

OR, it's as they say- the core network code is rubbish and they want to rewrite it.

I think that's overly harsh too. D3 does suffer from being too easy at times, but it certainly does have some enjoyable aspects to it.

I don't think it's a bad game, it's just kind of soulless and not very compelling.

That's pretty much what a bad game is, though, isn't it?

The gameplay is very sterile and the story is so bad that I didn't want to play through the game again.

Well, maybe I'm hashing shades of gray, but I'd say it was average. Maybe mediocre. But not bad.

I keep playing it because as it's gotten harder it's gotten a lot more fun to play.

While I can agree D3 has its issues, I still enjoy playing it from time to time multi. This expansion interests me... if the price is right.

Reading the Space Hulk comments it sounds like it isn't as bad as the review makes out. Apparently Games Workshop, a number of the RPS guys and a lot of fans who beta tested the game thought it was great.

Just to support the guy who said not every gamer pirates- I don't pirate a thing. I actually enjoy paying for things these days.

So far, I've been unable to use anything newer than 296.10 on my PC. If I try, any game I run goes to black screen, and I have to reboot. I think it has something to do with over-scanning the display, but I can't figure it out. Very frustrating.

I have this issue with Farcry 3. Tons and tons of other people have the issue, but it seems no one on the planet seems to know why it's happening.

EDIT: Sorry, I should say that if you're getting a driver crash, it could be because of one of these many causes...

Why it's common with FC3 though...

I just want it to work. I've had black screen crashes since the day I bought it. I think I've played a grand total of 15 minutes.

I don't know a single person who thinks Apple stuff is uncool because older people own them. I'm sure there are some, but it's hardly the masses.

One of my favorite games ever. Don't see the need for a remake with "HD" graphics that end up looking worse, though. I can just boot up the original in Dosbox...

If it's in DOS, it's not the original.

Trying to put people liking the game down to 'kids' and their lack of knowledge is moronic, plain and simple.

No it isn't, kids don't have a gaming history going back 20+ years. So even a shitty game will seem AWESOME because there is nothing to compare it against in their limited lifetime thus far.

It's the same way how many console call of duty players can't get into quake because they never grew up playing Quake 1, quake 2 and quake 3. They will say things like "I can't get over the graphics bla bla bla". That is a sign you're not really a gamer, since gameplay is not what you play games for but aesthetic cinematic experiences aka cod and it's clones.

It's a totally rational and valid observation that applies to millions of people.

Aside from you trying to fill me in as if I'm 4 years old, is it an observation or is it not? You say, "no" as if your opinion is fact and then you say it's an observation. Unless you have a white paper with some stats on it we're not talking fact. You're right you have a rational observation, but it's still stupid to throw your angst against a portion of society when all you have to go on is a guess.

Obviously you and I have different understandings about what constitutes whining, then.

Blues may rock, but the place is still filled with the kings of bitching and moaning. Anyone who's been here for a long time will happily admit that. It's part of its charm ;)

Hmmm....

Gee, I don't think you managed to generalise enough there

One of these things is just like the other.

I've been around Blues long enough to have seen who's here. 'Tis a bit different from summing up millions of gamers.
