  1. There was an interesting article on ArsTechnica. It dealt primarily with older games from the 80s, but the points are still relevant to this discussion. Summary: How to please the hardcore fanbase while making the game accessible to a larger audience? http://arstechnica.com/articles/culture/ga...s-come-back.ars Thoughts?
  2. Not every theme transferred successfully. COOP was a disaster for GRAW and it's successors. The ability to host & run tournaments, a community event that drew us together, cannot be understated. Unfortunately, the enjoyment lasted only a couple months. We all know the reasons why Ghost Recon lasted for 4 years. Long tail economics can still be very powerful AND profitable. I add my shout to this thread. Bring back the old Ghost Recon.
  3. Hey folks...for a limited time only... Dedicated Server up and running with Heroes Unleashed. Stop on by! http://www.ghostrecon.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=51393
  4. Special Detachment presents an opportunity to play the latest unofficial expansion pack on our 100mbit dedicated server: ^ CLICK TO DOWNLOAD (MAC & PC) ^ SERVER IS DOWN, 12/26/08, due to lack of participation (zero joins in 3 days). Bandwidth has been shifted back to ArmA. PM rossiski if you want to have a dedicated running. Come over to the +SD forums for joining requirements. In short: - TEAMSPEAK is Mandatory...no exceptions. - Unsportsmanlike conduct will not be accepted. Come on folks, we're all adults here. - Have fun! - Server will run for at least the week of Christmas 2008, maybe longer depending on you! Game server is Teamspeak server is
  5. Would a dedicated server be appreciated for the time being or are others thinking of quick user-created games?
  6. Two words... Coop gameplay. There really has not been a game since that takes coop to the level that GR did. After the MP deathmatch folks got bored and move to the next flashy game, Ghost Recon provided an almost-infinitely variable platform for repeatable, enjoyable coop gameplay. That's what contributed to 4 groundbreaking years of community support, IMO.
  7. We need multiplayer time with this. Who's onboard for some coop GR, voicecomm goodness?
  8. I'm surprised that the article from C&VG didn't mention ArmA. There are games out there provide a great coop experience. EDIT: Coop never died. Many are talking about "bringing the good old days back." Fans follow it's best implementation at any given time.
  9. We've been using ArmA lately for our coop and I have to say I'm very impressed. I believe this is the future for our group. Honestly, the first time I was a passenger on a "little bird" heading into battle was awesome...seeing those miles and miles of landscape roll beneath me. The realism is very addicting and I think I'm hooked. Also, I can't imagine gaming without vehicles now. How did I ever live without an M1A1 Abrams? Sheesh! Additionally, the ballistics are something that increases the level of realism. Knowing that you have to compensate for elevation really makes this more "real" to me. To those who are on the fence with the direction GR is taking, I highly suggest ArmA. It is an outstanding experience.
  10. Actually, you're probably closer to medium with that graphics card. You're not pulling any high, though. And it's stable...I've played one mission for close to 12 hours straight without any server issue.
  11. Oh lord. Sounds like an episode of Futurama. Over here they would be the comic book guy from the Simpsons. That is freaking hilarious. I can totally see that happening... New Futurama episodes coming
  12. http://hardware.slashdot.org/hardware/07/06/28/1124256.shtml Saw this on Slashdot today. Quoting from the site: "Recently, Intel patched bugs in its Core 2 processors. Details were scarce; soothing words were spoken to the effect that a BIOS update is all that is required. OpenBSD founder Theo de Raadt has now provided more details and analysis on outstanding, fixed, and non-fixable Core 2 bugs. Some choice quotes: 'Some of these bugs... will *ASSUREDLY* be exploitable from userland code... Some of these are things that cannot be fixed in running code, and some are things that every operating system will do until about mid-2008.'" (emphasis added) Non-fixable...ouch.
  13. I've heard many say pigs can fly. But it just doesn't mean a thing now does it? What people say and what is actually happening are two completely different things in this case. If people want an answer to the question: 'Is GR 1 dead?', the answer is right in front of them. All they need to do is wake the ###### up and open their eyes, that is where the answer is. Trust me, if there's a resurgence, I'd love to see it.
  14. It's a shame they're already finding out hacks for GRAW2. Hope the retail version addresses it.
  15. Subscribed to this thread because I have no input and also want to know.
  16. Waiting for the coop reviews from the community.
  17. Nice bump Toniezz... This should get interesting responses now that the demo is out.
  18. I've heard many say it's dying.
  19. oh.. I dont think that information is correct. Mattias Wiking multiplayer programmer Don't you love the constant confusions? It's always smoke and mirrors pre-release.
  20. Hello Fellow Chicagoan! I haven't tried it out...looks interesting, if it works correctly. I imagine this app would be useful for rigs that are constantly left turned on. I shut my PC down when not in use, so I don't have much use for power management. Or have I missed something?
