I bought this game and it still has some issues that need to be addressed. They need to fix the bugs, not release more content right now.

25. Am i a bad person? Mar 9, 2007, 21:34 Efflixi
 
I downloaded the demo of Supreme Commander and was left wanting more...

I downloaded (pirated) the full version a week before it was in stores and played it till my eyes fell out.

About 2 weeks later (just a few days ago) i actually bought the game because i could see myself playing this game over and over so i wanted to support a good game.

Cutter, its known that Blizzard doesn't count non-active accounts. Their numbers are pretty close to being legit.


"World of Warcraft subscribers include individuals who have paid a subscription fee or have an active prepaid card to play World of Warcraft, as well as those who have purchased the game and are within their free month of access. Internet Game Room players who have accessed the game over the last thirty days are also counted as subscribers. The above definition excludes all players under free promotional subscriptions, expired or cancelled subscriptions, and expired prepaid cards. Subscribers in licensees’ territories are defined along the same rules."

The city guards in Silvermoon (Blood Elf starting area) all have context menus as if they were pulled from Stormwind City and they speak in common. I hear the guards in the Draeni city are the same way...

No offense, but the game is called "Dungeon" Runners, you can't go in expecting something as big as WoW or EQ. The sole purpose of the game is to run dungeons to get better loot. Thats it.

Well, that site didn't stay up long! I got about halfway through the performance benchmarks before it died.

For those who cant' view it anymore, here's a quick rundown:
At resolutions and settings where it's not CPU limited, its 20-30% faster than the X1950XTX in the *worst* of cases and nearly double in the best of cases.


Here's some pics i was able to save, its from the FEAR benchmarks:

Here are some mirrored pages, the styles weren't kept so they look bad, but all you guys are worried about is the images anyway... right?

Is it just me or does the link not work? It's not an actual link according to the source code.

Does anyone remember when EA was actually good? They rocked hard in the mid-80's with games like Racing Destruction Set and more. Why oh why must they gobble up good companies and pass off the resulting steaming pile of shit as shiny diamonds?

"John Carmack killed in high speed crash while driving his ferrari."

It seems as if the PC game world is losing more people and companies to the almighty dollar and bad management.

Wishing there were more independant developers who could turn out games like Treadmarks, Fargate, or Serious Sam...

7. Re: resolution? Oct 28, 2003, 21:06 Efflixi
 
I played this game 8-10 hours a day for 1.5 years starting from the Stress Test when all we had was a barbarian with lvl 1 skills. I quit 5-6 months after the expansion pack came out (yes i bought it) because i finally realized it was nothing but repetition. I may install it again and give it a go but i seriously doubt i'll ever get back into it like i used to be.

There was a point where i knew the possible stats on every single combination of weapons in the game. (before the exp pack came out and added thousands of new possible combo's) I still find it funny to this day that i played that game for thousands of hours and never ONCE found a single Stone of Jordan on my own. I had plenty that i traded various things for and stuff like that but i never ever found one of my own.

Like the guy a few replies above me said, i stopped playing this almost 2 years ago. This may be a great patch, and im sure it will be... but i've left the game and chances are i'll never be back.

This thing looks horribly out of whack at 1600x1200. The fonts are messy looking and the title graphics + ads take 7\8 of the first part of the page. I dont like it at all and i've been here since it was Blue's Quake Rag and seen this site go through many changes.

A pic for reference: http://www.efflixi.com/images/blues.jpg

I dont like it, not a single bit...
