News Comments > Commandos 2 – HD Remaster and Praetorians – HD Remaster Released

Lots of hate and pissed off people over this game and them removing the beloved Coop.

People are not happy and that's elating to lots of lost sales. I know they lost mine, I thought the game was going to have it. Then they posted it on Steam and shows only SP.

Not to mention they censored the shit out of the game too. I mean WTF were thy thinking, I get it in Germany and all, but the US version and so on. SMH!!

Very bad move on the devs part. This bad decision will cost them.

As a fan of Star Trek -- having seen all the films and TV shows numerous times -- I very much enjoyed Picard. It instantly grabbed my attention and by the end of the episode hooked me. Being the first prime timeline series since Voyager it's awesome to see what has become of the Star Trek world. It felt like returning home.

Its next Generation, so that's a big plus over all that other BS that's out there.

Will be watching the show tonight, but I already know I will like it.

That's really not an example of CCP control...that's hollywood making the changes in order to avoid alienating a massive developing market of potential revenue.... Tencent...Tiktok...and any other Chinese company dealing with information transfer is the danger. Every company doing business in china requires domestic ownership....and has the CCP over it's shoulder.

Apparently you haven't been paying attention to the funding of many of those movies. Its all Chinese backed. So, yea it is CCP trying to control it.

So we watched Godzilla Saturday (my gf’s idea), and while the whole movie was tremendously fucking awful, the thing that stuck out most was the shoehorning in of a totally random Chinese character. My first instinct was wow this must be a Chinese-backed movie... and sure enough it is.

Yes, shoehorning a character from a giant media market into a Godzilla movie just to appeal to a wider audience is an unprecedented catastrophe.

LOL.

Skull Island had a Chinese character, as did The Meg, and both of them were fun romps. When a movie is bad, it makes like actor and product placement stick out. Still hard to blame them for wanting to appeal to a market of 1.4B people. Also, hooray for more Asians in Hollywood films. We've come a long way since Long Duk Dong.


Sorry Blues, but this a bullshit strategy by the Chinese, they have been pushing their way into Hollywood for a very long time now. Just look back at the Red Dawn movie, that was originally the Chinese who invade, but oh no, we dont want to offend the fucking Chinese so they changed it to the Koreans who could never in a 100 year develop tech like that to invade us.

But there you have it, the fucking Chinese trying to dictate to us and control how a movie should be made.

So yea, you can take those blinders off now!

Is anyone really surprised at this? Really? I'm not, I've lost all faith in Valves ability to create games. They are more interested in the bottom line.

Blues, you know you can still use your win 7 pro CD key and use it to activate Win 10 right? That option still works.

Much cleaner and more efficient to do a reinstall. So much cleaner.

If you need a Win 7 Pro Key , email me.

This rumor and speculation has been going on for a while now. I really like the Viking era, so this could be a lot of fun. Hoping UBI finally puts 2 player Coop in it. Anyway, Since Rune 2 is basically a wash this could fill that gap.

Tell me about it! The first thing I thought was what the fuck is this shit? I've played every Wizardry game to date, this will be the first one I skip. Cant believe this watered down shit is even called Wizardry.

Clearly you aren't THAT familiar with Wizardry if you're unaware of the Japanese spinoff series that's been going on for nearly 30 years and now has more entries than the Sirtech series : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wizardry#Spin-offs

The backstory here is that before Windows 95, Japan had its own alternate universe of homegrown PC platforms like the MSX or NEC PC-88. During the mid 80s, the Wizardry that Western PC gamers know and love was ported to Japanese PC platforms (by a company called ASCII) and was a HUGE hit. A couple years later, a game called Dragon Quest was released for the Famicon/NES that sought to distill Wizardry down to something that would work on an 8-bit console. Dragon Quest was an even HUGER hit and remains so till this day. After Dragon Quest took Japan by storm, the company that ported Wizardry to Japanese PCs decided to port them to the Famicon/NES, and Wizardry was even more successful on that platform than it had been on Japanese PCs. By this point however, the pace of mainline Wizardry releases was slowing down and the games themselves were growing too large and complex to be portable to 8-bit and 16-bit consoles. So ASCII secured a license to develop their own Wizardry spinoff titles for consoles and handhelds. While not as big as Dragon Quest or Final Fantasy, the Wizardry spinoffs had a loyal audience in Japan and they kept making them, through multiple licensee changes, up to this day, and some have been localized back to the West. This trailer is for one such localized game.

I'm well aware that its been popular in Japan, but that still does not change the fact that this game is still shit.

Just watched this mod in motion on Youtube - WOW! EA, go and watch the videos AND LEARN!!! And then produce a new Star Wars RTS, please. Maybe hire the guys behind this mod.

The mod is not as good as you might think, the lighting in the mod is all fucked up. they tinted the units with the color you play as and its all fucking shit ugly. They need to put it back like it was where the units tag was colored and not the units.

They all look like shit and way to dark.
