yeah but since Sierra's a member of the ISDA, pretty much no one can even carry their abandonware - those that do feel the pain of the ISDA.

it's completely top-down, so in that way it's vastly different from GTA3. Still, it got the controversy and banning of its newer brothers back in the day. But whereas GTA3 tries to be somewhat realistic, this one's more cartoony. Give it a shot - it can't hurt.

No, remember - he's gunned down by the cops right outside the thing, remember?

Actually I think on the VHS version the sound is so weak that it sounds like he got away but on the Laserdisc/DVD versions it's not.

Of course it's been so long since I've seen the movie I could be misremembering the whole thing.

Disencouraging that Blue's Boards still wind up being flamewars. Encouraging that it's just one person doing all the flaming.

I ran into some problems with the OC that were the result of starting it unpatched and then patching as I went along. I think I may start it over just to do it the right way (since the patching has settled down now).

I guess I need to start playing this game again - people can't seem to say enough good things about the multiplayer. As opposed to when it came out. Guess it does take a while for it to warm up.

I enjoy DreamCatcher's slightly-faulty adventure games and you really cannot beat the price

I guess that's their market - when there's not too much competition and the price is right (like they don't have to spend years trying to top the Unreal engine or the $250K to license it) then they can get away with less than perfect games.

I for one like Post Mortem, or the demo at least. I just wish the characters didn't have Jello Spines. I know some subtle movement is lifelike, but these characters were making me queasy.

I don't have the game yet, so it may very well suck as bad as some of the reviewers make it out to be.

That being said, is it possible to review this game properly? Does anyone remember Exile on Main Street from the Rolling Stones? (yes it was out before I was born) That album got horrible reviews when it came out, mostly because it sounded nothing like "classic" Stones. Over time though people and critics decided that this was the best album the Stones ever did and probably one of the best albums ever made (something the Stones anticipated - the Exile in the title was part of their plan).

So perhaps the critics all pan MOO3, but as months and years go by perhaps the hidden genius of the game will come out. Plus remember that for the most part the review infrastructure of today wasn't in place in 1995 or 1996 when MOO2 came out - perhaps that game would have gotten panned, too. This may be why, even though the game went gold early last month, the release date wasn't until now.

Remember though that any average person on message boards couldn't have been playing this game for more than a day.

Or perhaps its that critics want to jump on the "it took a long time so it sucks" bandwagon (Daikatana, Battlecruiser 3000AD, etc.). Sometimes its justified. I'm curious what PC Gamer has to say - their reviews are usually pretty good.

I thought about that, but Microsoft will no doubt want royalties for logo usage (look at the small number of games that use a Windows logo). Plus it muddies things up a bit when the gane ships for multiple OS's (like Mac + Linux). Plus "Windows" can mean 95/98/ME/NT/2000/XP, it would get confusing plus you'd have to pick and choose which flavors of OS would work. I like Infogrames/Atatri - they have a nice nonobtrusive "PC CD-ROM" logo that would work.

Yeah, especially given that Dantastic's quoted system specs won't even be able to play the game!

Some people just want desperately to be the "first" to predict the death of something.

On a related note, I have a friend who was really interested when I started telling him about MOO3, until I mentioned its lackluster graphics, at which point he lost interest because "its graphics suck". Now, I haven't played the game (obviously) and it may not be my bag, and it could be that my friend would just dislike the gameplay as well, but other than the usual "the gameplay is king!" bit, is there any other good way to lure him over into even thinking about the game?

No, postmortem just means the "life" of the game's development is finished (save for patches and such of course), and so this is a summation of how it all went.

I'm waiting for the Post Mortem postmortem (and that gag will continue until someone does one).

Also, I can't decide whether or not to buy this game. Is there going to be a demo?

Please be forewarned - the (apparently unstoppable) background music for "Despot or Sexpot?" is possibly the most annoying thing I've heard in a might long time. Headphones or mute if you enjoy your sanity.
