Oh, a guy named "Jeff", apparently from Meredian 4, is posting over at the official Steam forums here and there. Gamespot gave the game a bad review, but heck with them. :twisted: I'd chip in my positive thoughts but I STILL can't get my Steam forum account activated. I don't know what the deal is. :?

The other thing happening is small companies get swallowed up by large publishers (EA, Activision, and Microsoft, to name a view), who often want them to re-focus on console versions. Far too many PC franchises imho are getting watered down by this happening, getting turned into clumsy console ports...

A lot of people at the Steam forums are unable to get the demo to run. I'd post there to tell them to come over to these forums, but their registration appears not to be automated and their moderator appears to be asleep (i.e., is not approving forum registration signups) so I can't get posting priv...

You guys may want to "sticky" a post in the forums explaining online play can't be done with the game's current engine. I think you're going to get a lot of new players from the Steam release asking about this topic over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and ove...

Another example on Steam is Red Orchestra, which is a mod based on one of the Unreal engines by Epic, which is ostensibly though of as a competitor to Valve. Eventually, it turned out the Red Orchestra dev team decided to change to the Source engine for their next "full game" incarnation, even thoug...

FWIW, the game (at least on my system) behaves very well with alt-tabbing. That won't help probably if yer switching to another game. But if you need to take a break, do some Web surfing or check email for a while, you can probably leave your mechanic in a safe room somewhere and alt-tab out of the ...

I bought the game at Best Buy. No I don't have the level editor installed. I'm confused, are you all recommending I DO install the level editor, or that I DON'T? :? :) I thought it was in beta and don't see any download links for it. The game runs fine once I go past the error message screen, as I s...

At that Echo fan site, there's some info on various sequel plans that never got off the ground (including an online multiplayer variation). Most of the key design members are out of the games industry now. The key guy Tony Zurovec followed Chris Roberts out of Origin/EA into their own firm in the he...

Oh, while I was battling the mech I had some great flashbacks to Origin's 1995-1996 isometric action games Crusader: No Remorse/No Regret. One of the great things in Crusader were sequences where you accessed a remote control panel and took control of a walking mech that fired rockets and machine gu...

I'd love Internet co-op for this. I do get the impression their engine simply has no "hooks" for Internet or LAN play, so they'd likely have to rewrite the whole thing to insert it. OTOH, there was one bargain WWII shooter i liked a few years ago (Deadly Dozen) that had no multiplayer at all. For th...

Did you guys play Max Payne 2? I had meant to ask if there was any chance of a "Last Man Standing" skirmish mode for Shadowgrounds like Max Payne 2 has. Maybe just something to mess around in once someone has completed the missions campaign, w/o having to use the level editor. 8)

I blew through (well, relatively speaking :wink:) through the next mission after that. Then I decided I needed a break. I'll give you guys credit for a game that (on Normal) makes me break out in a cold sweat, bang my keyboard occasionally in dismay when I get my poor mechanic offed (I could really ...

Thanks again for the basic guidance. :) I blasted it with the 100 mini gun rounds from behind and that finally did it. I don't know if shooting from behind matters, but at least I didn't take any return fire.

Did a health meter ever come up for the mech? The previous "end bosses" had a visible health meter, but I don't see anything for the mech when I blast it. I did find an ammo crate with a little mini gun ammo at least. Anyway, thanks. :) I'll keep trying but there are no medkits left, and I just can'...

For the love of God, someone give me a hint. :cry: I took 2 hours to get this far on the lousy mission (please Frozenbye have a heart and don't make missions this long without a savepoint).

This error is only annoying (it doesn't prevent me from playing the game).
