The hardware will be released in episodes.

Well, they darn well better not release the motherboard and CPU in the first 2 episodes, then never get around to releasing the graphics card...

In best Robert Duvall voice:

Smell that? That's free gifts to a falling player-base. Once we had an MMO, falling numbers, losing subscribers. We called in marketing support, bombed that player-base for 2 months with free gifts, double XP, added playing time... When it was over, I logged on to the servers and all you could smell was that empty server smell, even with all the free gifts...

Smells like... desperation...

News Comments > EA: Tanks for the Warhammer 40K Inspiration?

First, this is so obviously infringing that you would HAVE to be trolling to disagree.

Second, it's a sad commentary on GW and their games. They are doggedly pursuing success in a dying medium. Before computer games, tabletop gaming might have been king. But now, unless they have seen it IN a video game, most "gamers" wouldn't recognize a GW property. That doesn't justify someone stealing their designs... but come on! One of the most anti-technology game companies (they won't even allow their games to be SOLD via the web?) is surprised when no one in game design recognizes their models?

They should be using the web/gaming as a new market. Instead we get a handful of decent video game interpretations of their tabletop games and a single mediocre (to be generous) 3rd person shooter... and a hostility to all things electronic.

Sad...

OK, considering that the primary appeal of the books to many is the strong characters in complicated (often ethical) dilemmas in an intricate political conflict... I'm not seeing how this will translate well to this game. An interactive movie... maybe. But an AssCreed-style adventure/combat game? How is that going to play out?

An excuse to regulate the internet? Probably, but like the wild west of old it has pretty much been proven that people can't control themselves with a free and unregulated internet.

Dear God! I've been lurking on this site for ten years, and your comment finally made me sign up!

I don't know what's worse... your faulty analogy or your appeal to it in order to support restricting human freedom! First, it wouldn't take you more than five minutes to research the "Wild" West and find out that it was far from "wild." The most homicides ever recorded in Tombstone, AZ in one year? Three (and that was so extraordinary/infamous that they have made books and movies about it ever since). How about Dodge City? Five. Deadwood? Seven. Hell, seven murders is a slow WEEKEND in Detroit!

So, you conclude, based on a false, media-driven stereotype turned analogy, that people cannot be expected to behave on the internet, so we need to regulate it?!?! Please!
