FYI - I didn't want to post this as a news item as it is really only gossip and conjecture at the moment. However, there has been some interest expressed here about Republic : the Revolution and it does seem that the community is getting nervous about the game ever seeing the light of day.

Which would be a shame.

Don't know why. Strategy game of the year at this year's E3.

I would read that but I'm loading too many windows as it is at the moment.

That stars game seems to have disappeared without trace, too.

I am, as usual, the voice of reason over there.:)

Yeah but E3 often turns out to be nothing more than a hype machine.

Interesting what they based the judgement on;)

There are times when something that isn't hype comes out of it?

For that matter, I thought E3 was the big computer gaming porn convention.

I don't really know anything about E3 I just read that on the Elixir website. :D

Sometimes it is a true game showcase.

Then everyone starts awarding phony ass awards for games that they saw movies about or got invited to a 10 minute backroom demo.

With whores. In costumes:).

Well that's quality though.

Yep but it's hardly a reliable way to test games:).

It's a good way to test the whores...

Funkodrom

Wouldn't fucking them be a better test of the whores?

Venom

Yeah, but it's computer geeks...like that'll happen.

I misread that. I thought they were.

Must be the public that's getting fucked then

The public should get soap on a rope then.

Isn't that Sid Meier's Soap on a RopeŠ

LOL:lol:

I was going to make a comment about where to attach the rope and then realised that we'd all had our plonkers pulled by Firaxis already.

What's wrong with plonker? Great word. :lol:

Venom

I think I've heard it used before.

A new first for me - I've got them talking about bugs before they've even seen a demo.:)

BTW, can you guess which is me there?

It's not hard, but you should change your signature to counterglow.com

Venom

NOOOO!!!!! Don't direct anyone here RC! ;)
