Wow lucky I was lazy yesterday and forgot to download it. It was on my tasklist and I was really looking forward to the HT improvements.

Whats in the new patch? I've been away from WoW for about a year now, and feel like its changed enough that it might be worth going back.

I likes DS2. But I gotta say, they seriously need to update the graphics engine in that game. It looked worse that diablo1. You had to run it at really high res for it to look somwhat decent, but it was a performance hog too, so running it at anything beyond 1280x1024 was not going to happen.

<3 Stardock. I'm glad this whole ordeal has brought more publicity to them as well as to Starforce (negative publicity that is).

FFXI was a fantastic MMORPG, albeit it was not an "easy" MMO like WoW. I definitely want to see what next MMO they have in store. I'd be pretty happy with FFXI-2.

I've actually never heard of GalCiv 2 until a glowing review posted couple weeks ago on FiringSquad. I'm a big Civ and Alpha Centauri fan, so I was definitely intrigued. I've been waiting for some more reviews and user impressions before I go pick up the game, but this seals the deal. I'm most impressed with this company's attitude towards combating piracy:

Our primary weapon to fight piracy is through rewarding customers through convenient, frequent, free updates. If you make it easy for users to buy and make full use of your product or service legitimately then we believe that you'll gain more users from that convenience than you'll lose from piracy.
...But there are other ways to reduce it than through draconian copy protection systems.

Like I said, it sounds like a fun game, sci fi and strategy, and its sorta "anti-Starforce". I'm sold.

Here to AceKicker winning this money, I too saw Daikatana the first two times I read the head line. It wasn't until I started reading through the body of the press release that the world is in fact not going to end.

Knowing ubisoft, the PC version will probably be loaded with starforce. I guess I'll get the 360 version if in fact its any decent.

I'm happy they're working on improving the performance for HT and dual core. Can't wait to give this puppy a try.

Any more first hand comments? I'm on the fence on whether to get this or wait. I'm a star wars nut, but the demo didn't hold my attention, unfortunately.

Agree 100% with m00t.

No. Shut the fuck up.
Sure if you say so. Just one last comment.

Like i said, they patched their game because they saw some things they wanted to improve, get over it.
If its just a couple of improvements, fine. But if you go read the list of fixes in the patch, there are far more "Corrected" issues, than there are "Improved". A couple of them sound crippling.

I don't pretend to know about game development, but I do work in a small software company. So while I don't know absolutely everything there is to know about releasing a game product, as clearly you do, I do know how hard it is and what it takes to come up with near bug-free software. And how expensive and time consuming bugs can cost in the long term.

It's fucking absurd and ignorant to think that a game that receives a patch before it ships was just not fully tested

Can you leave personal attacks out of this. I was careful of my wording. I said "as fully tested as it should have been". Sure software is growing ever more complex and there may never be any perfect release. And no range of testing (aside from public beta) can ever predict what 100,000 users will do with your product.

The difference here is that they're finding bugs BEFORE those 100,000 users ever got their hands on the final product. If bugs are still being found between the time of going gold and appearing on store shelves, then the product was not tested and polished as much as it should have been.

I'm sure that missing the 2005 holiday release incurred alot more pressure for them to release, but thats no excuse.

Patches are fine, that means the developers are supporting their product. But please ignoring what games with patches released on day 1 really are: unfinished.

If a patch comes it right on or before the day the game ships, that just says that the game was not as fully tested as it should have been. Its about quality assurance. This game looks interested, and I played the demo. Unfortunately it game me the sense that it was very restricted inthe SW universe, it was unnecessarily complicated, and had a clunky obscuring interface. Its not all bad, but maybe I was expecting alot from the next get rts.

Same here. I had the sound stuttering bug since its release, and while I've gotten all the latest patches and updates, and made all the recommended tweaks, it just wouldn't go away, even today. I managed to finish the game on an older system, but I didnt find it all as great as many have proclaimed.

I got lost in the sea of HL mods. Kinda skipped DoD entirely. Can anyone comment on how DoD is compared to TFC?

Been waiting for RE4 for the PC. But I hope Ubisoft doesn't release it with Starforce.
