some of those "1.3" million have got to be the same console being sold again and again and again.

and how many of the 1.3M are poachers just trying to get a profit.

Don't worry scrote. There are plenty of 'tards out there living really kick ass lives. My first wife was 'tarded. She's a pilot now.

22. Re: Battletech game Dec 7, 2007, 18:17 VoodooV
they just need to make a 3d version of all those old Battletech text based MUSE games. They had such a perfect mix of all the classic turn based RPG rules, but it was all done in real time.

I love MechWarrior, but I just don't want another shooter game. I want it to be stat based, not twitch based. I want to win because I have superior strategy, not because I can circle strafe better than the other guy.

I'm not exactly taking a leap of faith on this, but I'm calling it right now: It's going to suck balls.

Sorry guys, but my cynical side is winning out right now.

GoW is a good solid game. It got me to stop automatically hate all shooter console games. (though most are still an abomination). But I just can't see this game selling well on PC. too little too late. If they had actually given a damn when the game first was released, then maybe the story would be different.

spoiled brats. If the game was good enough, swapping DVDs is a small price to pay.

I wonder how many people would actually rethink their college decisions based on whether or not steam works at that school.

...or show some maturity and be patient and wait for all the hype about this episodic bullshit to end and wait for both of these episodes to be ridiculously cheap and get them then.

silly early adopters, won't they ever learn?

the first one on the 360 wasn't bad. like someone else, it was a good popcorn game. Just a decent shootemup.

but this new one looks ridiculous. lets take an already unrealistic WW2 sim/shooter...and make it even MORE unrealistic. not to mention rip off crimson skies with some of those planes.

Really, I think DX10 and Games For Windows is just a scam to kill off PC gaming. They'd rather just collect royalties on Xbox games.

Bingo! Why develop games for two platforms that already sorta similar when you only have to develop for one.

Thing is, I really don't mind. Consoles are getting more and more PC-like anyway. all we really need is the ability to make mods and more support for mouse/keyboard and continuing support for backward compatibility and we'll be golden. maybe some more independent developer support too.

but the PC gaming industry has been digging its own grave for a while now. overly expensive video cards and physics cards. games that focus more and more on graphics when we really don't fucking need cutting edge graphics. we need GOOD GAMES, fuck graphics, right in its ear.

This is just another example of how the games that a lot of use grew up on or were introduced to gaming with are simply not being made anymore and maybe never will be.

FASA games were always about making choices, and having advantages and drawbacks to everything. Wanted to load up a mech with nothing but PPC's? Sure go ahead, but you have to worry about overheating. Want to load a mech up with nothing but AC20's? sure go ahead, but you're going to have ammunition issues. Want to go fast? fine, but your armor may be thin or you may not be able to carry lots of weapons.

You have to think, you had to calculate, you had to have a strategy, you had to have a tactic that maximized your strengths and minimized your weaknesses. Oh and if economics played a part? forget that, because then you may not be able to afford that 100 tone munchkin clan-tech Diashi can't have that now can we?

In today's world? fuck that, thinking makes my brain hurt. I just want to mash some buttons and be rewarded with pretty graphics.

It's far easier to ignore a message board full of angry users than a bunch of employees you work with every day.

That's the problem now that games have become more mainstream, since you have a much bigger audience, the percentage of people you have please gets way lower, just as long as its enough to make a profit. who cares about that vocal niche of players like us who can't stand the continual dumbing down of the franchises we loved.

Thing is though, I have no doubt MS will eventually make another Mech or Shadowrun game, they'd be stupid not to. But as MechAssault and the ShadowRun FPS has shown. you can say goodbye to games that even remotely faithful to the original tabletop games.

IIRC there were still people at FASA Studio from the original days when Battletech games still kicked ass. This could just be a move to consolidate and when they do eventually make another Btech/Shadowrun game, there won't be anyone to complain that its not faithful to the source.

FASA did MechAssault? Ok, fuck these people. I could be playing Mechwarrior 5: Mercenaries by now, replete with live-acting cutscenes.

Blame Microsoft and their need to make Xbox a hit. Halo was supposed to be PC first as well

Please, Did you expect a company known for deep, well thought out, complex games to survive in the emerging world of consoles where everything is fast pasted and XXXTREME!!!

keep in mind, we're not at war. Only Congress can declare war. Bush is not a War President as he likes to paint himself as.

so how do you like those 3000 dead now? It's interesting how easily some people are willing to say that there's only 3000 if that's somehow OK.

So let me get this straight. When Jack Thompson says that violent games leads to RL violence, its OK to say that Jack is batshit insane loco.

But when it's a GAME created by the US Army, that's somehow crossing the line? Sure, the army uses it as a subtle recruiting tool..why wouldn't they? But to somehow equate the America's Army game to the horrors of war and the quagmire that is Iraq is also batshit insane loco.

It's a fucking game people. Either play it or don't, otherwise STFU and get over yourself.

As much as I'm amped about this game, every screenshot I see just makes me think of KOTOR, Same thing with Jade Empire.

Not that it's necessarily a bad thing mind you. All of those games are among my favorites, especially KOTOR.

Just sometimes it seems like more of the same, variations on a theme, cookie cutter almost. I'm eager to see a ME Demo on live soon. Hope I'm proved wrong.

XP won't be sold next starting next year? I predict an increase in piracy in that case.

What's next? a hidden DE-activation code if you go to Windows Update and you're still using XP?
