I'd kill to have the kind of connection required to have a 12 or 16 player CS:Source server just for people from GG or CG, but that's just not meant to be I suppose.


Ahh....but I do.  We just need to get our hands on it....

GLOBAL STAR AND FIREFLY STUDIOS ANNOUNCE STRONGHOLD 2

New York - August 24, 2004 - Global Star Software, a publishing label of Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. (NASDAQ:  TTWO), and Firefly Studios are pleased to announce Stronghold 2, the sequel to the award-winning titles Stronghold and Stronghold: Crusader. The Stronghold franchise has sold over 1.5 million units worldwide.

Due to be released for PC in early 2005, the castle-sim and siege-warfare RTS game Stronghold 2 will bring the series to life in glorious 3D. Stronghold 2 will also offer players a "castle-life" campaign, enhanced multiplayer capability and a new, innovative and exciting single player campaign that will be revealed in the months ahead.

"The first Stronghold game pioneered a genre by combining the elements of simulation games and combat strategy into a single unique experience," said Christoph Hartmann, Senior Vice President of Publishing at Global Star. "Now we are thrilled to bring Stronghold 2 to the market, which will undoubtedly set the standard as Firefly Studios has taken its already highly regarded gameplay and pushed it beyond anyone's expectations with new and innovative features.  We are confident that Stronghold 2 will captivate gamers in 2005."

"We decided to steer away from the typical RTS mold when we developed the original Stronghold," said Simon Bradbury, Director at Firefly Studios.  "Now, with a 3D engine that can render tens of thousands of animated characters on-screen simultaneously, we can explore the intricacies of castle-life and the machinations of siege-warfare like never before in Stronghold 2. Once again we will take the Stronghold franchise into new and exciting territory."

My problem with Mr. M's games are typically that they are one-trick ponies.  You can train your creature....and now I'm taking it away from you.  Now you have it back, but you've probably gotten bored by now.  Have fun!

I'm hoping that Fable is not all surface flash like B&W seemed to be for me.  If the good option and the bad option the same eventual outcome I'll be disappointed.  If everything you do truly does culminate in a different experience with a different ending (which I've heard time and time again that it does) then it'll be a knock-your-socks-off title.  In just a little bit we will know for sure...

Some of the interactions change dramatically and you have some very different choices, but they don't let you get too evil.  The sequel is supposed to 'fix' that.   I found the second run thorugh to be diminished a lil bit...you don't have the massive plot twists to look forward to, but it is interesting to see what you can do with them. smile

Counter-Strike: Source Beta... Live!
At 7:00 PM PST Counter-Strike Source Beta went live for CZ/ATI users. Although some users have already reported a handfull of problems, overall the whole event turned out fine! On a (rather large) side note, Half-Life 2 will start pre-loading 18th of August, so be sure to check Steam once in a while.


And there you have it...

Seems the studio screwed us.  Those who waited for the DVD will get to see the movie as it should have been.  Sonsabitches!  

Quote
About the studio's cutting of the film, which he had no control over, he said, and I quote, "All of the best scenes were cut." Anderson was obviously very annoyed at the way the film was released. However, this was not purely because of the PG-13 limitation, which incidentally, the studio enforced THREE WEEKS before the release date! It was always going to be R until then. Part of the reason for the cutting was that some of the effects were not ready by the time the release date came around. The effects team had very little time to do anything.

As far as the content that was cut, apparently we see all those who die, die on screen, but he also said that there is a sub-plot that we will have to wait for on DVD. Yes there will be an R-rated Director's cut DVD although they don't know the release date yet.

Without saying anything that could dig his own grave, Anderson tactfully pinned the fault of the poor quality of the film on the studio's cut. We all know that the script and performances was not quite up to par either, but then it was time for me to ask my first question.
