I loved it though (I had a thing for weird, turn-based European games), and it was out in an era when I was reveling in all sorts of turn-based squaddie stuff (Blue Byte's Incubation [ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=78Ijnni8b18 ], SSI's Soldiers at War, etc. [ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soldiers_at_War] ), Jagged Alliance 2, Tom Clancy's Shadow Watch [ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shadow_Watch ], etc.). For a few years, there were so many turn-based squad strategy games, I toyed with doing a fan site devoted to the whole genre. Thankfully, I talked myself out of it. icon_smile

Nice, that describes a similar period in my life around that time, playing all of those same games. I *loved* Shadow Watch.  icon_cool

I love the art style as well, something about a game that uses an engine where everything looks like hand-drawn water color paintings in motion appeals to me. The story seems well done and you care about the major characters and their fate. I'm hoping they somehow use this "CANVAS" engine and "BLiTZ battle concept" in other games or... a sequel.  icon_cool

Started this when it came out and, like normal, moved on to the next new shiny something else I bought. Trying to break that habit and this is next on my "go back and finish games in my backlog" list, been long enough however I'll probably just start over.

IGN slapped together a side-by-side comparison video showing the first six minutes from The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena's Escape From Butcher Bay campaign, as seen today, next to the same segment from the original version, released five years ago:

Video comparison

Interesting how the page says the comparison is for the PC version and yet for the first conversation option that comes up ("Talk to Barber") it shows a green triangle to initiate the conversation on the 2009 side.  icon_confused

what's amazing is that someone actually/deliberately bought something from him, according to this feedback...

y'know, if this really is a scam to snag people who have 'one-click' activated, & it's okay with amazon, i'm thinking you'd have to be crazy to activate it...

Apparently not OK as the storefront is no longer available.

Looks like you got a good deal. Checking eBay right now shows 'Buy it now' prices from around 62 to 87 bucks with shipping.

The best reason to get the PC version is so you can disable the leapgates.

So... you can 'disable' them? Meaning remove the need to hack at all and have them all online all the time?

Yup! Here's how:

In the file Assets>Scripts>Jumpgates>gate.lua there's a class definition for the gates.
You'll find a line beginning with Gate.AttributeDescriptions:AddAttribute
Note, you want the one without the "--" at the beginning
Change the "{default=0}" to "{default=1}" which alters the definition of the gate class so that open is the normal state.

Poof! That's it...one little number. Still not as good as the original, but much more enjoyable this way, IMO.

Note that superficial aspects of the game may still react as if the gates are closed, bcause I didn't mess with the table that stores their status or anything like that. For instance, paths will appear closed on the maps, and entering a gate will get you the "that gate is closed you idiot, why are you clicking on it" sound.

Cool, thanks. Have to give that a shot.  icon_cool

Just save and give it a try.  The issue should only affect a small percentage of people.

Yet another version available now for the lockup problems.

I picked this up on Steam and haven't had any crashing issues. However, I'm in the same camp here - I don't find it nearly as engaging as I did the first one, something I have on my PC, DS and 360. The only 'hack' I've used so far it to change the Leapgates such that the timer stops while the gem cascades roll on. I realize that it was meant to work that way and the whole point is to force you to pay more attention to setting things up and thus avoid triggering cascades, but me no likey.  icon_wink

Looking at my NCSX receipt, it cost me a total of $70.78, including shipping from New York to California. The game is currently listed at $63.90 on NCSX's site. I don't know. Since the standard price of games these days is $60, an import game at $64 doesn't seem like much of a stretch. Sure the game MAY come out domestically sometime, but really no one knows. All I know is that I am playing and enjoying it NOW.

From New York? For some silly reason I thought it might end up coming from China or some such and so jack that $64 base price up way more. For basically $71 that's not bad.... hmmm....

So... is there a secret to this?  I've only got two downloaded games at the moment, the Zelda Ocarina game and the one that sounds like a Queen song. One lets me copy or move it to the SD card, the other only copy (forget which is which) but neither show up on the SD Card Menu afterwards.  icon_confused

That's weird.  It should work.

You have the little icon at the bottom of your screen, right?   So, you updated to the recent dashboard release.

Maybe make sure you're on the first page of channels in the SD card menu?  Or scroll through all of them to make sure it's there.  Did you delete them from the regular Wii menu?  Maybe that's an issue.  You could also just try downloading them again.

Yup, all updated and got the little icon and when I didn't see it on the first page I scrolled through all of them just to check... nada. Guess it's really meant for the larger WiiWare or VC games, as noted by Kronovan these ones are small so not a big deal - I was just surprised when "it didn't work" and was wondering what (if any) restrictions there may be on what does and doesn't work there.

I watched a couple of episodes and was interested enough to pick up a half-price boxed set of what I thought were the three books of The Sword of Truth series but now I see they are the first three ginormous books and there's what - twelve or more all together? Great. I also just saw the "good at first but..." and "devolved" and "trainwreck" comments I do believe. So... how many of them are worth reading?  icon_neutral

I really enjoyed the first 5 books, then the series went to complete shite IMHO.  I haven't even bothered to read the last few, although I've heard he regains a bit of his early form and ends the series well.

i've read and really enjoyed the first 5 as well...never picked up any after that mainly because i got distracted by other things and haven't had the time, but the story started off pretty good in my opinion.  i don't know what he did to mess things up later, but i'd still like to get back to the series some day...

Thanks guys. I'll give the one's I've got a shot and see. Got a huge backlog, though... buy three, read one, buy four more, read two... if they stopped printing books tomorrow I'd be set for years it seems.  icon_neutral

Almost sounds like a repeat of the old "Tarl Cabot" Gor novels for me - great at first, turned to crap around #4 I think and I never made it past 5... and there were 25 of the damn things eventually.

So if the new DLC alters the quest line, does that mean the level cap increase doesn't apply to those still going through the original quest as I still am?

I'm not sure what you're asking.  When you get Broken Steel you have access to more levels no matter where you are or what you're doing.  It's magic! smile 

You covered it. But if I'm not done with the main quest and the DLC alters the ending of the main quest doesn't that create some kind of time space continuum thing or is it smooth as silk...

If you haven't completed it yet, what's to alter?  icon_wink

It's us folks who finished it who are wondering how in the heck it will be 'altered' in order to allow things to continue. I actually completed the main quest and then went back to an earlier save to continue my adventures. I think that was at around the 40 hour mark and now here I am, entering The Pitt with 107 hours under my belt, firmly smashed up against the level cap with Sarah Lyons and Giant Robot still patiently waiting for me so we can go kick some Enclave ass. I hope. I guess I should go check.

So I'm hoping that with the advent of "Broken Steel" I can go back to where they're waiting, live out this altered ending and then continue terrorizing the wasteland to my heart's content. Or at least until I hit the new cap. Yes?

So, here's a thought - is the lack of DLC on the PS3 because of some exclusive deal with Microsoft, or is it because of this? The world may never know.

even if Kathode knew I'm sure he couldn't say, so why don't we stop bugging him about the PS3 DLC and start poking him about Elder Scrolls 5?  Tongue

i can't wait for Elder Scrolls 5,i loved Oblivion and liked Morrowind(until i ran into all sorts of problems on the xbox)


as for the DLC on PS3 there is a rumour that Bethesda had a little falling out with SONY over Oblivion GOTY(not sure what the actual falling out was) and that was a reason why they didnt put this DLC out on the PS3

i heard this on the PS3 forums,so you know it has to be true(!)

Yah, must be.  icon_lol

I'd be shocked if this was an actual Bethesda decision, but who knows any more. Always figured it was the whole 'Microsoft exclusive' thing.
