They completely ruined it by making it a squad based combat game with an RTS viewport. I understand that there are people out there who like that sort of thing, there are people who love blue cheese, but recent events would suggest that they are not a majority.

I don't necessarily think the DOW2 change is responsible for THQ's troubles. I enjoyed both games, was fun to customize the squad and so on, loss of base building wasn't that big a deal.

That Takedown project looks interesting, world needs more 'tactical' shooters in any case.

GOG giving away a "Legendary" RPG on Thursday I guess it'll have Legend in the title.

Ah, only to people owning Witcher 2 or buying it, so I guess it's not that cool. Whoops.

Some more Next Gen console rumors:

PS4 to release before next Xbox

Next Xbox to use always-online DRM?

If MS is that dumb and goes down the Ubisoft road, I predict Sony will have it easy. Unless they do the same dumb thing.

The whole anti-used games rumors suggest that both consoles will feature some kind of online checks.
I just don't understand how MS hopes to implement it - they sell thousands of consoles in countries that are not supported via Live.
Maybe those rumors are for dev-kits only?

I can see that they want to bind your game to an PSN/Live account to curb used games, but always-online?

Please...

Which reminds me, the Witcher 2 x360 special editions got cut in half, so yours truly was left without a copy. I'm starting to think they simply don't want my money.

Holy hell, haha. I'd love to play a "classic" Larry game again, those were great silly fun. :)

EDIT: Goddamn, a remake? That's too bad.

Read the FAQ. It offers up a lot of possibilities. According to a comment Scott Murphy (Space Quest Co-Creator) is also ready to join them.

Shush. I was referring to the just released RE: Operation Raccoon City.
