I played (or tried to play) BC3K back in the day. The bugginess and brokenness was legendary, but even when it was (kinda) fixed, the underlying game was TERRIBLE. The UI was just a model of how not to make a game. And as some have said, it's a shame, because if that game was made well, I'd probably never play anything else.
I have no idea how Universal Combat turned out. The screenshots looked atrocious and given "Dr." Smart's responses to his critics, I have no faith at all that he learned anything from his mistakes.
I do always look forward to Smart's games, just for the drama. One day I hope someone makes BC3K correctly.

All I needed to see was " new weapons and equipment for the Albion Skunk." So they didn't fix the biggest issue - not being able pilot newer and different ships.

I played a Reakktor game about a decade ago. Some kind of cyber-punky post-apocalyptic thingy. It was beyond awful. The servers were all in Germany, so and the netcode was dismal, and no one outside Germany stood a chance. Then to top it off the game was flooded with cheaters.

Even without those flaws, the base game was wholly derivative crap. Oh yeah, the IntArwebz reminds me that the game was "Neocron". I wouldn't touch another Reakktor game with a 10-foot pole.

In a better world, he would have succeeded in realizing his vision, and no one would long for Star Citizen or Elite Dangerous or Limit Theory or Enemy Starfighter or No Man's Sky or anything else. But, sadly for Dr. Smart, this is not that world.

Without meaning to derail this highly interesting discussion of piracy theft and so forth -
Ghost Recon has stunk for the last several iterations, and GRO looks to be truly awful. The franchise has pretty much ceded the field to the Battlefield series.
Actually I can't remember a single GR game that was enjoyable. My friends referred to it as "that shooter where you can't jump over a small rock or curb".

...Oh lord, it's getting worse by the second. IGN has an extended preview of the game up and it reveals even more terrible news. For one, tanks can't be damaged with regular weapons, which makes them even more overpowered than the tanks in T2. I'm guessing you'll have to use a specialized anti-tank weapon, kind of like the missile launcher in T2, only this time it's probably exclusive to the Anti-Tank loadout...

The T2 tank may have been powerful in a pub full of kids, but it was ultimately irrelevant and unused in any sort of high-level play. It was just too slow to be useful.

I'd kill to play a Freespace 3. . .
But a Freespace designed for mouse, much less console controllers, just wouldn't be a Freespace. I wouldn't even bother picking it up.

I'd probably have bought these if they were available without using that gawdawful Windows Live! rot. Is it just me, or has Bethesda's insistence on only selling through Windows Live! caused a lot of people to blow these off?

Wow. We're all good little indoctrinated socialists, aren't we?

Flinging around the word "Corporate" as though ALL Corporations are "Evil and Greedy" is just plain nonsense.

Are their "Evil and greedy" companies? Sure. And Flagship falls into that category via their ridiculous pricing scheme. A model that thankfully failed.

But remember... a LOT of these "Corporations" (And privately held companies) provide YOU with a JOB. The Next time your "Professor from a University" or your "Typical Main Stream Media Journalist" get's on his / her political soap box, please remind them of that fact.

Translation: "Bla bla bla, monkeys, evolution ,gay marrage"

=========================

Apologies for the quoting. I can't ever make bluesnews forum posts quote the way I intend.

The implication is that the original poster - wtf_man - is simply rehashing the same conservative talking points that have pretty much wrecked our country. Fausticle is implying that defending corporations is up there with, and largely associated with people who get bent out of shape about evolution, gay marriage, and so on.

I'm inclined to agree with him, but there are some -not a lot of, I think - financial conservatives who loathe the bible-thumping, knuckle-dragging social conservative side. To my mind, the social conservatives and the finacial conservatives are equally superstitious, but that's an argument for another day.

PS I summon Derek Smart. Derek Smart! (and for a third time) Derek Smart!

I think DS noted the storyboard illustrations, but imagined that they were what the final game's graphics should look like.

The Derek Smart PhD epic never gets old. Just in case anyone was unaware, DS claimed to have a PhD, but it turns out, if there is such a degree, it's not from an accredited school, i.e., he bought it through one of those email spam ads. Just Google "Flame War Follies" for the full, delicious, drama-laden tale.

"Those of you talking about accomplishments don't know what you are talking about because you think that game development is about rubbing stones together."

That would pretty much explain the quality of DS's games.

" "I have no less than three degrees - including a distance learning (something which even MIT, Princeton and everyone else is now offering) Ph.D."

this is classic derek smart propaganda. he still insists on having a doctorate degree. tell us oh smart one, which acredited institution allowed you to work on that doctorate degree. oh thats right... none."

Yes, I notice this one never got answered. Cereal Box Institute, no doubt.
3 degrees - an AA, a BA, and a fake PhD.?

On a more direct note, the games are simply ass. They look like crap. The controls feel like crap. The flight model is ass - not Jenna Jameson ass, but Rosie O'Donnell ass. And the UI is famously bad. There's menus hidden within godawful nested menus, it takes 20 minutes to get the tiniest thing done. I want to like the game - I love space sims, I've played X3 and Jumpgate for years, and no one can say those are simplistic. You try to play Universal Combat, and you'll put an icepick into your temple as you curse the elder gods that gave you thought.
Just take what joy you can from DS, and be entertained by these flames.

Those terms aren't vague at all! "technical and related information" covers every aspect of your computer. "without limitation" means (determinately) ummm, with no limits. (could they have really intended 'not limited to' ? That would make more sense).
EA intends to non-vaguely rape you. The game looks like a bland diablo clone with nice graphics, so I don't really care, but boy do I sure hate to see the way the industry seems to be headed.
