  1. Thread winner best review so far that I agree with. So hard sometimes to pick between the fanboys and the realistic reviewers. Thanks guy. Looks as though the game like the others still has a lot of work ahead of it before it's really ready for the masses. I'll wait and get it from the bargain bin like I did TOW1 recently. I guess that has become the trend nowadays game releases and one to two years later it's ready for purchase. Sure am glad there are demos to save some of us from wasting our money.
  2. I wouldn't be so sure Windows 7 will replace XP finally. Not anytime soon for sure. It will take years to get mainstream to even accept Win 7 after the Vista scam. You can bet if a lot of games won't run on Win 7 gamers will turn on it just like they did Vista. If you're already having issues with games that's a sure sign it's in for a rough road to hoe.
  3. Back to Matrixgames and KOIOS PANZER COMMAND:SERIES then for me. Though their infantry system sucks at least it has a campaign mode and even a random campaign mode and at least rotate the map randomly feature. Nice try Battlefront you kept us waiting and waiting and waiting for a long time before you dropped the bomb on us. Guess there is still hope when you finally get away from this Modern Era CMX2 junk. I'll be back then to buy.
  4. Why did you downgrade to a 6200? That's your problem besides it being a P4 instead of Athlon. Looks like you downgraded everything but the memory and memory alone won't help you with crappy cpu and gpu.
  5. Hey it's not our fault you use that crappy on the way out Vista OS. You could have had XP installed, but, you chose Vista so suffer for your mistake don't blame it on Battlefront or other gamers. I bought a new computer recently and it has XP installed, so, don't act like you had no choice. As for those waiting on Empire Total War you are going to just waste your money yet again. CA has been promising greatness ever since that horrible RTW initial release and the game and that miserable AI hasn't improved yet. I don't see this one making any progress either. But, if you just care about graphics and little gameplay or challenge then by all means waste your money. I'm not.
  6. I'd just be happy with an AI that knows when it's winning and plays to win. I don't care about graphics hell I'll play with 8 bit stick men if the AI is good/great. I just can't help shake the feeling though what we are going to get is just CMBO in module form with pretty graphics. Please explain to me what the CMX2 engine really has over the CMX1 engine other than graphics and the ability to play real time? Kinda feels like Matrixgames buying up the Talonsoft and Old Close Combat series, making it XP compatible and sticking them back out there at full price again.
  7. I don't see how this is true since Matrixgames Panzer Command Kharkov far surpasses even your CMX2 modules because it has random generated campaigns and random generated battles even. I think you bit off more than you could chew with that statement Steve. Even the ai is better in it. Once Koios gets the Western front portion out it's going to put CMX2 Normandy and it's modules way behind unless you put back in quick battles and random created campaigns.
  8. Don't you guys see? It's all a MARKETING SCAM to get more IMPATIENT people to buy CMSF Marines. Notice Moon makes a pitch for buying CMSF Marines in every post.
  9. Will the Strategy First publication of Blitzkreig work with the Battlefront expansion WAW? The reason I ask is this on the order page of WAW: "This is an expansion pack only and requires the base game of "Strategic Command 2 Blitzkrieg" (Battlefront.com English language version) to be installed and activated in order to play. Currently the expansion will NOT work with any other non-Battlefront.com version of Strategic Command 2 Blitzkrieg. "
  10. Where's the battle at Midway and the sinking of 4 IJN carriers? I thought this game was supposed to be historical?
  11. What I would like to see instead is the developers give the AI some life and have it taunt you during the game and say things like "What a stupid move that was" or "haha I sunk your battleship" lol stuff like that. I'd like it to be sound so we hear it no matter where we are, but, would be nice if the map auto scrolled to where the action was at when the AI spoke. This could actually lead to the ai winning more games I think as players who really get serious about being taunted would perhaps make more mistakes and forget their focus. I do this sort of stuff in PBEM games and it works for me.
  12. Plus not everyone plays like George McClellan and so the ai shouldn't either. Perhaps the ai realized it was in a losing situation, decided to John Wayne it at the Alamo and knowing it was going to get eliminated anyways decided to take as many with it as it could.
  13. Thas what yall get for buying ATI video cards the worst card for overall compatibility. I don't have these issues with my Nvidia cards.
  14. The fact that players would build airbases all over the map is what wouldn't be historical. Now if there were an extended delay before the airbases were built AND they could be DESTOYED or put in unusable conditions I'd be for that. But, this is an operational strategic game not Civilization IV or Tropico.
  15. You could also do a system "search" for the file name you named your save game and it should show up somewheres on that hard drive.
  16. Yes and as I recall that Russian got his butt kicked at the end of that movie. So, all the consumers watching that movie got what they wanted at the end of it. To mean if you wait and hold out long enough you'll get what you want.
  17. That's all fine and well, but, what if you just happen to have a massive heart attack and die? I know that's morbid and all, but, we're talking about consumers vs business practices that you are now saying you are the soul person who can do something about the elicense. Plus, I didn't see 3DO or the others making no-cd ability of their products when they went out of business or stopped making products. It's all fine and well to give us your well being thoughts of "this moment", but, things change, people change and attitudes and personalities change in given situations so what GUARANTEE do we have that you'll live up to your WORD? I'm just trying to understand why software developers and publishers think they are better than every other industry out there that doesn't live by these practices, offer refunds and the whole 9 yards of "consumer satisfaction". I get more customer satisfaction buying books and music cd's than I do out of software purchases. I just can't fathom how the software industry treats EVERYONE like they are pirates first and foremost and treat those that DO PAY just like they would a pirate. On that note, the demo is great and I'd really like to have a copy of it, pay full price, but, I will NOT cower and be victumized by intrusive DRM's or copyprotection or any other means that is intrusive or forces me to do a certain thing or be online to play a silly game. No game is worth that. No gamer should have to do that or be treated like a pirate. I will also push for boycotts towards any publishers or developers who do so. We boycotted StarForce and got that off of several publishers games I guess we'll just have to do it at other places as well. Back to Matrixgames where trust comes before greed.
  18. by forcing elicenses that scenario might not be far away.
  19. Thanks to both of you that really helped and I will definitely give the demo a try. I am a Pacific Fan of WW2 and I'm always looking for another rendition of that theater since they are mostly so few and far between. I have Pacific General and I enjoy that very much. The HPS games are merely ok and I don't play them much because the ai isn't that great. Rising Sun Gold is about the same, so, I'm really looking for something more challenging, but, not the level of War in the Pacific by Matrixgames because I just think that game is too busy. I'd like to finish a complete game in a day or two. Long as there are options to tweak the ai to a harder difficulty then I think I will be happy. Giving the ai more has never bothered me. It's when I give the ai more and it still sucks is when I don't feel the developers put enough time into the ai to make it challenging even for the hard core of us. Thanks again.
  20. Well really you can already play this game sorta. You have CMBB so play CMBB all this does it make a campaign link out of CMBB and there's even already campaigns in CMBB that do that already albeit it's all tactical not strategic. Although I am anxious for this game also I'm still going to miss that it will never have random generated campaigns like Matrixgames Karkhov by Koios does. That's what I'm playing waiting on this one an other than the weird infantry death system it's not a bad game.
  21. Just wondering as I like Gamers Gate for my downloads and I like Paradox distribution methods better.
  22. Well here comes yet another game of war, but, once again is the AI any good? How many levels of difficulty does it have? How much can the gamer tweak the AI to make it harder to play against? All too many games come out with hardest mode and they are easy. Is this ai going to be anywhere near the ai of the expansion of SC2? I ain't buyin it or recommending it if it's not.
  23. Oh just about all of them at Matrixgames, HPS, Shrapnel, just about every mmorpg, hrmmm, and Paradox how many patches did EU II get YEARS after it was released..will your company do so much? Fact is you left the Combat Mission origional series unfinished and still with bugs and issues. So, I wouldn't go patting yourself on the back when others have done so much MORE.
