    I don't think the rights are such a huge problem. Gearbox has enough financial firepower they could probably overcome any such issues.

    The bigger problem is that the source code is missing. Rob...

    I'd be intrigued to know the definition of "a few years ago." I paid 34.99 for MONKEY ISLAND II in 1992, 29.99 for FRONTIER and SYNDICATE in 1993. 14.99-19.99 was the standard price for expansion...

    I think he means FREESPACE 2's story. And yes, there is a very strong narrative but the game's opening - having you take down the rogue admiral in some pretty straightforward missions - is...

    One thing that struck me was how good HW2's AI was. Especially when you combined you whole fleet into a strike force and then targeted an enemy force. Your bombers would go after the capital ships...

    I meant they ballsed up the lore and backstory, not the gameplay. The gameplay was okay.



    I could buy either of those things, but they're really not what happened. With just two exceptions (out...

    Much as I love X-WING, TIE FIGHTER and the mightily underrated STARLANCER, FREESPACE 2 is my favourite space sim of all time. It has the best story, the best atmosphere and one of the most awesomely...

    Pre-order is worthwhile only for the collector's edition. The standard version will be released on Steam (no word on GoG yet, although you'd hope) and apparently will be 'modestly priced'.

    This is a key point about what FALLOUT is about. It's 200 years after the bombs fell (and still 100 years later in FO1) so the immediate post-apocalyptic vibe of FO3 never made sense. Society is...

    My Thrustmaster T-Flight HOTAS worked straight out of the box with X-WING, no need to reassign anything (although the default buttons are bit odd, so it's recommended). Even the throttle works fine...

    Fallout 3 has the much better opening few hours, is better for Fallout newbies (though it also acheives that by dumbing down a lot of stuff, which is a problem for old-skool fans) and has a much more...

    Paizo CEO Lisa Stevens confirmed on the Paizo forum that there will be a 'proper' CRPG further down the line. The card game was simply something Obsidian could get up and running ASAP.

    The Homeworld collector's edition, including light-up Mothership, is available for pre-order. In the United States anyway. The rest of us will have to wait a while, for reasons best known to Gearbox.
