I'm glad it's failing in an epic way. It's sending a message out to developers that shit like this simply will not work with gamers.

I loved the concept story of Hellgate - but after watching the previews, playing the demo, and seeing how they treat customers, I will never touch this game nor anything made by Flagship.

Can you add it as a text link instead of that image thing? Like next to the title and date and "Post a comment" link you could add a "Digg this!" link or something. Not intrusive but still gives people the option to do it if they want.

The Rainbow Six novel (written by the real Tom Clancy) had the forced sex between kidnapped people. Had something to do with testing the "super virus" that would kill the human race, or whatever it was they were trying to kill the human race with. For obvious reasons, beside it being insane, this stuff wasn't in the video game

I believe the super-virus was the main plot device in the original Rainbow Six game.

So this is what comes of the Cryptic team buyout?

Sorry NC, I canceled my account last month because I was bored... and this certainly doesn't help things.

Damn, so much gaming nostalgia on that shelf. Not only do you have all the MechWarrior games, but also the Heavy Gears. I see the Earthsiege series on there, but didn't see Starsiege or Tribes. Did I miss it?

Simcopter! Man, I loved that game.

It really is sad knowing that the quality of some of those games will never be seen again.

This trailer looks fucking horrid. Not only do they show the fighters flying in between BUILDINGS, you also have the cliche SAM-missile chase, which is completely absurd and unrealistic.

Pass on this.

Do you even know what BVR means? Just because you can't see it, doesn't mean your bullets won't hit it.

So you were able to shoot down an enemy using only guns without being able to see it?

What sim were you playing, HAWX? :-)

I wonder if this is how the name-buying thing happened.

UBI: Hey Tom, we want to make this flying game called HAWX and put your name with it. See what we did there with the name? It could have been HAWKS, but our studies show that replacing "KS" with "X" made it sound cooler with the hip-hopping teenagers. Anyways, the game is like an arcade thing with mouse control...

TOM CLANCY: Are... are you serious?

UBI: Yes! But don't worry, there's this thing called Enhanced Reality System that pretty much makes anyone feel like they're a real fighter pilot, and all they have to do is move their mouse! Oh, and the story's gonna be about private military contractors in 2012 that have their own air forces. Think Army of Two... but in the air.

TOM CLANCY: So as long as my name belongs to me I will NEVER put my name on such an unrealistic travesty!

UBI: Oh, really... (dun dun duuuuuuuuuuuuuun)

I remember reading a review that Tom Clancy was supposed to be very concerned with realism in his games, even going to the point to debate the inclusion of the thermal and night vision apparatus in Splinter Cell, because there was no way a device like that could be built in real life. You can see this attention to realism also in the early Rainbow Six games.

Apparently, that has all gone out the window.

Let me tell you what I want... another Jane's game. Longbow II was amazing, and F-15 was a giant step in the right direction. Not to mention that US Navy Fighters, ATF, USAF, and I presume IAF were a hell of a lot of fun without totally sacrificing the realism.

I remember reading about the concept behind "Jane's World War" which was going to be an MMO (before MMOs were even coined) but instead of having its separate client, the player would play by playing whatever game they want, so if they wanted to fly planes they would boot up USAF, if they wanted to drive submarines they would boot up that Jane's sub sim (I forget what it was called), Longbow if they wanted to fly Apaches, etc... I creamed my pants at that, and I was sincerely disappointed when Jane's was disbanded.

After I beat this game once, I didn't even go back to play it again. There's such a stark difference in gameplay from when you're fighting the Koreans to when you're fighting the aliens that it just doesn't mesh together. The multiplayer sucks so that's not worth keeping my attention.

Well it wasn't Blizzard's joke, it was Planetdiablo's. It would be hard to get them to make a website hosted by Blizzard.

The Tauren Marine was funny though, I loved the part about "overpowered racial abilities."

I was really hoping that WotLK would introduce something different into WoW besides the continual hunt for epics. It didn't. I'd like to see different things in WoW besides epics.. such as player housing, player-owned boats, etc. If implemented it'd be really cool and would really mix it up a bit.

The 2.4 patch with the Sun Shattered Offensive or whatever is called just seems half-assed. It's more of the same, and the island is incredibly small. I was really disappointed, and although I'm hoping for some better things as the "phases" play out, I'm not having high hopes anymore.

I was really looking forward to Warhammer, but this delay killed it for me. Age of Conan is looking to be my jewel now, and I hope it lives up to the hype. I tried LoTRO and it didn't seem fun at all.

The best hope these guys had was to release the game before the WoW expansion. Now pushing it till fall will probably have it come out right around the same time, and WotLK will prevail.

Although the beta is available, Legions (the TRIBES one) is not. There are other flash-based games available for play though.

Rush is always part of a strategy, if you can't handle or figure out a way to stop a rush, then RTS isn't for you.

Of course a rush is a part of strategy. But the problem is that for many RTSes, the rush is the ONLY strategy. What's the purpose of having units at tech 3 when the rush comes 5 minutes into the game? And if you defeat the rush, then you counter rush hoping to catch them with no units. It never really develops into full fledged strategy, but just who can get there the fastest.

I personally LOVE the Dawn of War series. I love the squads and the micromanagement (not to mention the universe is awesome), but the rush is big there, too. I just tried playing C&C3 again and found the voice acting of the units to be so bad I almost gagged. The hardcore Nod units sound like pre-pubescent 13 year old boys.
