  1. That is a great list. Amazing how some older games captured our imagination and long term appeal more then some recent ones. Red Storm Rising was such a great game, same with M1. Its really not that strange that games of old perhaps captured us more than they generally do today. We were younger and had a much smaller frame of reference. After playing a couple of hundred games you obviously become more blase' about the whole thing and expect more from the experience. the X-com series was freaking excellent, but If I played through it again today the chances are that it would only ruin a childhood memory ive spent a decade hyping and romanticising over in my head!
  2. OMFG you need to pay for beta testing????? That is so bad! You are doing testing for a company with all kinds of NDA' and you still need to pay for it??? Jeez Cmon :tsk: and people wonder how weird rumours start, well folks, this is how! its not the first time papa6 has jumped the gun and screamed out in agony over something that only minutes later turns out to be not true. but I guess thats part of your charm papa6! as someone else said, its not the beta you are paying for, its the subscription to that particular download service.
  3. Lol. That's a girl. She was on another picture in the article as well. easy with calling people girls, I remember when someone thought I was a girl in the original grin picture! aah the humiliation! Didn't you get a haircut afterward? yeah...

  5. Got MY vote! How is dear little Pesto? she is very well , thank you she still tends to walk on her hind legs sometimes, I think the accident breaking her front paws actually somehow speeded up her evolution! and she will be most thankfull for the nomination
  6. oh yes, I live for flame wars when you guys started to quiet down, I needed a new crowd to tickle my flame nerves! hehe thanks for the kind words guys, its been a lot of fun!
  7. its very true, you have to rub grin_bumbi´s tummy from now on to get the good stuff! but Its not like im gone, ill haunt this place like a ghost(pun very much intended) in an old castle!
  8. yes, maps, textures, models , code and game play, thats all we changed really he he
  9. dont give up rocky! its a tough art to master, but the feeling of satisfaction after conquering your opponent after a 2 hour battle is second to none! well..there are a FEW that can beat it I guess, but I think this is the wrong forum for talking about them
  10. ofcourse buggyness is a sore issue, but it really hasnt got much to do with sloppyness in most cases but more from lack of time, and also I think alot of it comes from the forgetfullness of players, in our heads the games of years past was perfect and bugfree, but in reality they were really just as buggy as games are now. I wouldnt say games have become sloppier(especially considering how much more advanced they are nowadays) but peoples expectations has gotten higher. but ofcourse, me as much as anyone would wish games were bugfree, but there really isnt a "fix bugs" button to press(if there is, please tell me where its located on the keyboard!) that said, looking back, GRAW patched is ofcourse alot tighter than graw out of the box and ofcourse we would have wanted it to be as good as it is now from the start, but time time time doesnt always allow this.
  11. my oh my, even translated Jens manages to sound like a total cheese ball
  12. liar! no one at grin would be stupid enough to show a game in progress to a friend who cant keep his mouth shut!
  13. I can tell you that they were probably quite ###### off when it was pulled. Making a game requires alot of involvement from the uuh..well..involved, and it affects both your personal and social life a great deal alot of the time, but you do it to have something to be proud of in the end, and to have that satisfaction yanked out from under your feet, after having put so much of yourself into something is so frustrating that no one in their right mind could walk away from it without being a tiny bit ###### off. Most people dont work in games to make make alot of money, If I wanted to make alot of money I wouldnt work in games, we/they do it because they love games(for the most part). and about the uniforms, you dont expect mitchell to wear the same sweaty uniform he wore in the first game do you?it must smell horrible after those intense days in the hot mexican sun!
  14. dont wanna rain on your parade Canga but I think rocky already posted this
  15. oh no, those pictures(and videos) are for internal use only!(and blackmailing ofcourse)
  16. a tad premature but what the heck! merry xmas, even tho I dont celebrate xmas , only Festivus!
  17. actually, I dont think dice intended BF2142 to take over after bf2, but rather have people play both and perhaps get players thats not into "realistic"(im using the term rather loosely ofcourse) games. We were drinking beer the other day with some friends at Dice and was told that appearntly(as im not one to read sales list, so I didnt know this, but perhaps everyone else in the world does ) even tho bf2142 sells ok, its release hasnt really affected bf2, its still one of the top sellers, as it has been since release.
  18. I hardly think GRIN will get rid of their own proprietary engine. But there's just too much HDR for my taste. Let's hope GRIN learns lessons from GRAW. for the last and final time , HDR stands for "high dynamic range" and you really cant have "too much" hdr, im guessing what you are referring to is bloom and posteffects perhaps ?
  19. well you never know Rabbi, Ubisoft has done crazier things than getting Kevin Smith involved in a game..hehe... "there is only one return, and it aint of the king"
  20. the urban dictionary has this to say about Woot 1. woot 1548 up, 247 down Woot originated as a hacker term for root (or administrative) access to a computer. However, with the term as coincides with the gamer term, "". "" was originally an trunicated expression common among players of Dungeons and Dragons tabletop role-playing game for "Wow, loot!" Thus the term passed into the net-culture where it thrived in video game communities and lost its original meaning and is used simply as a term of excitement. "I defeated the dark sorcerer! Woot!" "woot! i r teh flagmastar!" (Think Tribes) "Woot, I pwnzed this dude's boxen!'
  21. I dont know...are you guys purposefully unhappy? Do you try to hate GRAW to feel better? I really dont know, I'm not trying some misinformation campaign...I'm posting what I've seen... hehe, that was kinda meant as a joke, we swedes sure like our play on words and if you havent noticed, it would be kinda weird for me to be a graw hater, since my name is "grin_wille" which kinda indicates that I was a part of making GRAW
  22. if we had more girls around here we could hold a beauty pagent to crown "Ms Information 2006"
  23. for me(since ofcourse, I would be biased if I said graw, and ofcourse I didnt buy it I would say Company of heroes and medieval 2:total war would be my top picks of 2006, absolutley fantastic games! ...but that only counts the second half of the year..what was I doing the first half? oh yeah, thats right, crunching to finish graw, hehe
