just thought some people out there might like to know that introversion are making a third game called 'defcon' and rumor has it that EA may be publishing it. my fears for the company are no more and i can sleep in peace again.

anyway, this topics turning into one major red vs green darwinian warzone! my point is that there's no point in arguing over the game, people all have there own opinions and even though these opinions may not be the same as yours that's no excuse to start having a go at them.

if this game is not someones cup of tea then just exept it and don't worry about it, god only knows there's someone out there who doesn't like half-life 2 (can't understand why!) but there's no point walking up to that person and giving them a good hit round the face cause that is not going to change there opinion.

anyway, this post is getting a little longer than i expected and i hope everybody understands the point i'm trying to make.

peace out!

Safe KeeperSo I assume you don't think the Total War, Sim City, or Civilizations series have any strategy in them either, hm? "Oh my God, I can't win by micro-managing everything to death, this game has no strategy!".

Come on, listen to yourself. In Rome: Total War you controlled whole "squads" (I doubt they were called that back then?). In Age of Empires II you controlled individual units. What was deepest? The flanking, testudos, and multiple other special abilities and tactics of Rome, or the units simply walking up to each others and hacking and slashing until one side was dead or fleeing? Well?

Actually I think what I meant to say is that, it's not really a strategy because you have extremely limited options. In the demo, which is all I have played, you pretty much have to follow a path, then when you come across enemies, you just tell your little commander guy to make them run towards it and they start shooting. That's pretty much all you do. Then you have your little program slots to choose what you want, and since you are limited, you have to use strategy to decide what to use, but since you don't get very many slots, you don't have very many strategy possibilities to think about. There is really no macro-management either if you think about it. You just have to make your guys walk from the incubator to where ever you need them which isn't that hard to figure out.

First of all, darwania isnt a mod. Second of all, its a great game. It may not be to your "OMG! im gonna shut big ali3ns in teh face!!" tastes. It is certainly very different to the HL games. I can safely say though that it has more original ideas in it than all the HL games put together. The storyline is much cleverer than the old "OMG! Big aleins are invadin so i nide 2 shute dem in teh face!" Even though the graphics arent advanced, they are certainly breathtaking. The massive levels, the visual effects, the massive unit count possible, its much better than being able to see some rebels nose hair.

Safe Keeper Second of all, this is hardly a "mod". A "mod" is something that increases graphics quality, gives armour some more hit points, reduces the range of bowmen, or allows Palpatine to play Counter-Strike on Vader's wrist computer. This is a full-fledged game.

HAHAHAHAHAAH!!! I LAUGH AT YOU!!! HAHAHAHA! You dont know shit about computer gaming!! HAHAH! Mod increases graphics quality!! AHAHAHAH!! Gives more hitpoints! HAHAHAHAHA!!!

here, read about it jackass and next time dont lecture without having backup! Your HD might crash http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mod_%28computer_gaming%29

SO, AGAIN AS ALWAYS...

FIRST OFF, TO ALL YOU SHITHEADED JACKASSES THAT WILL NEVER LISTEN OR JACKOF* WHILE READING POSTS POSTED BY OpiumMuffin! IT IS HIS OPINION, IT IS MY OPINION! AND MY OPINION IS THAT THIS GAME SUCKS ASS! YOU CANT SAY MY OPINION IS BULLSHIT BECAUSE SAYING THAT WILL PROVE YOUR A TOTAL MORON THAT SHOULD BE PUT IN PRISON AND KICKED IN THE ASS. I REALLY COULDNT CARE LESS ABOUT YOUR OPINION AND THIS THREAD, MEANING YOU MORONS MADE ME POST AFTER ABOUT 4 MONTHS NOT BEING HERE!

SECONDLY I HHHAAAVVVEEE PLAYED THE DEMO AND I DIDNT LIKE IT!!!!! DO NOT TELL ME I JUST WATCHED THE VID AND POSTED SOMETHING cuz im gonna rape ur mom!

THIRD IM NOT A RASIST OR ANYTHING BUT REALLY IF YOU ACTUALLY READ YOUR OWN POSTS YOU WOULD KILL YOURSELFES A SECOND LATER!

THIS THREAD SHOULD BE LOCKED AND THE NAME SHOULD BE TRANSFORMED TO DARWINIA SUX, I DONT CARE ABOUT YOUR OPINION!
