Hey Lone_Wolf, Where you at? Are you still trying to beat Hearts Of Iron with the French Army? Give it up, I keep telling you they hard coded it so that they surrender. That is the true realism test for WWII strategy games.

Well that figures, Unreal Tournament 2004 comes out as a DVD about two weeks after I buy it on 6 CDs. I had to do a double take, yes 6 CDs. They did not even give me one of the cool jewel cases, the thick ones that flip like a book. They just put them all in paper sleeves. How tacky! I had not seen that many CDs for a game sense Baldur’s Gate. Why do they do that? Why not just release it on DVD in the first place? Do they think not enough people have DVD readers? Do they think that we enjoy storing massive amounts of CDs? I can see doing that back in the days of BG, the DVD was not even being used for movies, but now most everyone has a DVD drive. Most computers that have system specs this high to run the game has a DVD drive. If they do not, then that is just sad.
They could have released the CD and DVD version at the same time. Like widescreen and full screen movies. Not waited just long enough for me to buy it and then taunt me, ‘ha, ha, you should have waited.’
I guess the days of games coming out to just DVD are still a ways away. Even as I type this, I am installing Far Cry (5 disks with the cool CD case) on my PC and am getting interrupted by notices to insert the next disk. Oh well…
Another reason to like the Xbox, besides Ninja Gaiden, all the games come on one DVDs and no install time.

Please give me a game to challenge my system. Give me a reason to look at the newer hardware. Give me that boasting right. Give me a reason to look at computer hardware ads and drool at the specks and the games that I can play on it. I remember the days when I was beaming with delight because I was one of the few in my group of friends that had seen Half-Life played at 1600X1200 with no frame skip. I miss that part of having a PC. Now it is where you buy something and wait for 2 years, all the while your friends are laughing at you because their rig plays the same games at the same performance for half the price. Now it is just who can fit the most goofy lights and the most windows in their rig.
PC has gone the way of the cars. You use to have the muscle cars with tons of custom tweaks, and you did everything you could to squeeze every ounce of power you could, now all the cars are cool based off of how bright you can paint it and how many lights you can cram into it............

What started this
