My brother in-law loves Dungeon Siege, only one major problem with the game. He cant play MP, he has the French version and they never made a FR patch v1.07, I also looked on the zone yesterday and there was only 4-5 ppl playing! A game with so much promise and now you cant even play MP yet is a very big let down. No GOTY.

UT2003 I dont think will die down at all, if anything it will get bigger, why. Well firstly there are 30 maps, and 35 personnage(?) all different. The game is beautiful, I cant belive the amount of polys there are. Also there are alot of people that love DM/TDM and also that will love bombing run.

I myself am waiting for RavenShield, but thats early next year Anyways good to see that there are alot of games out that people are liking, we all win

I agree, I mean I understand the initial hype thing that a lot of games get but this is Unreal. PU is reporting that over a 36hr period there were over 1.2million d/l attempts for teh demo not to mention the increasing number of demo srv's currently running. Another thing that epic/de lucked up on is w/ bombing run. Finally we get another gametype besides the standard ones, that are actually fun to play and more challenging. I just don't see bombing run becoming just another assualt gametype either.

Who knows, maybe the same will happen for DoomIII?

Mafia is like GTA3 only with a more engaging storyline and better missions. At least that's my understanding. I'd like to play it but I don't wanna shell out the dough for it. I'm saving my pennies for UT2k3.

Here's a link to the game's web site for 'ya:

Talking

I still think it'll be UT2003. The game is off to an even better start (popularity-wise) than the original, and otherwise is about as stressful on current hardware (especially the processor) as the original is on the hardware that was current when it hit the scene.

Thumbs up

I actually had several different cards early after I got the original, including (but not everything) a Voodoo2 12MB, a TNT2Ultra, and a MatroxG400Max. Since I still play the game, it doesn't need to be said that every GF card I've had has been used with it.

I can honestly say that the video cards, while making some difference in the game (mostly in the form of color depth or minor performance boosts) contributed less to the increases in performance than upgrading my processors have (started out with a Celeron 300a @450 and now using an AthlonXP2100+ at 1845Mhz..)

Obviously the game's addictive, because it's been the main driving force for my upgrades as well as the primary benchmark I have used for determining what works best for me. I expect UT2003 will be the same in the future, now that I'm playing more of it than the original (and as soon as I see a copy of the game on store shelves, it'll be mine, mine, MINE).
