SkyNET (the FPS game from Bethesda) and, uh, Future Shock? the one where you are the resistance and you put on a Terminator exosuit and blow stuff up, were just phenomenal games.

Gave this a shot with my Logitech joystick, but it hasn't worked right in years.
A-HA! You aren't the only one. I have not been able to use my joystick with a Need For Speed game since NFS Underground 2. Most Wanted, Carbon, and now Pro Street, just don't work with my joystick, which is a little sad since I have been using a joystick with Need For Speed games since Need For Speed 3.

After NFS:U2, the NFS series stopped letting me setup my joystilck the way I wanted. I am downloading this now, and really hope they have fixed the joystick support.

Portal is pretty much GOTY in my book. The bonus maps are a little brutal. Hope they release more maps or at least update the SDK so others can.

Actually cheese, it uses the new NWN2 engine, not the first.
The Witcher does not use the NWN2 engine. It does use the Aurora Engine and the CD Projekt guys threw out the original graphics engine (which is about 7 years old now) and wrote their own.
I've been following this game for the last year, so I should know.
Well, we licensed them the engine, so I do know.

This is a damn fine RPG. I had a chance to play one of the near final builds and I enjoyed it quite a bit. I think many RPG gamers out there will enjoy it, too. I just hope it gets the press and promotion that it deserves.

Is it too much to ask that companies of this size either hire QA personnel or contract for such services?
Any particular reason that you ask?

Didn't realize you guys read Blue's News, Derek. That is rather neat.
Yeah, I have been visiting daily since I was first introduced to Quake 1 by friends. I only created an account about 7 years ago, coincidentally, right after I started at BioWare. This is actually one of the few public accounts where I used my nickname instead of my real name.

I wonder what happened to Dragon Age, is that even going to be for the PC any more?
Dragon Age will be coming out for the PC. Just won't be talking much about it until we do a few things first, such as ship Mass Effect and get a publisher for DA.

"Mass Effect Sets In. Gold, due November 20."

Doesn't say anywhere in that article that its "gold", nor has the game gone gold yet.

Completely disagree with #47 as the name was kinda innocent and the gameplay was fantastic. All the others were pretty bad names.

Please re-add the joystick support that worked so perfectly in NFS Underground 2 and all the earlier games that was ripped out for Wanted and Carbon. Please?

Ofcourse, Stewart got a million bucks for playing Richard the Lionheart for 1 minute in Robin Hood : Prince of Thieves

I thought that was Sean Connery, not Patrick Stewart?

Well, considering that we have never announced a release date for Mass Effect, its hard to delay something from an original date that didn't exist in the first place.

The date, as usual, is When Its Done.
