    Yea that's fair, when I was thinking of AI, I was more thinking of Jagged Alliance 2's AI than X-Coms, but maybe I'm looking at that with Rose tinted glasses too.
  2. Yea but that's the thing, I might grant you...

    Yea but that's the thing, I might grant you graphics on a few games, but even games that for exterior appearances don't have great graphics, or indeed any reason for "high" system requirements still...

    Fair enough, I don't know what I'm talking about which is why I posed the question. But I think my post needed to be read a little more carefully before saying such. So I'll rephrase for you.

  4. A Question for you technies: What an earth are games "spending" all our power on?

    Here's what I really don't get about modern games............. and I've thought this for ages, what are they spending all that extra processing power on? It seems that for 99% of games the increases...

    Hey all, pretty simple request.

    Yea I'm pretty much a mouse and keyboard man all through, I rarely have any real difficulty using the control scheme on any game, but it took me about 2 minutes to abandon it with Dark Souls. (though...

    Wait, how have I missed this, Star Citizen looks amazing?

    Though having looked at it, it looks quite cool, though the Alpha hasn't even been released yet? Maybe you were talking about another game?

    Star Citizen as I recall wasn't really a successor to FS2, it was more along the lines of Elite/X series of games.

    Freespace 2 didn't even have cockpits. Even if you wanted to make them, again...
  10. Soooo why hasn't there been a Freespace/X-Wing Spiritual Succesor Kickstarter?

    When the kickstarter craze first kicked off I was counting the days until some ex Volition dev or similar asked for money to build a spiritual successor to the great Freespace 2.

    But it hasn't...

    I honestly never found the whole capital ship building trade empire thing much fun to be honest. As a lover of TIE Fighter/Freespace 2 when I played X3 I mostly just played as a roving fighter pilot....

    By late in the war it really wasn't much of a gamble at all, by the Battle of the Bulge you can read about entire units who are seeing combat for the first time with only about 5 or 6 hours training...

    I would be ridiculously surprised if that last stat was true, it just doesn't make sense. As for the Phosphorus use on enemy tanks, yes I've heard that too but I heard a different explanation. I...

    I got burned twice by Codemasters in quick succession, once for OFP:DR and once for F1-2010. Now F1-2010 wasn't absolutely terrible, but it wasn't great. Whereas OFP:DR just anashamedly lied about...
