Indeed.

And Prey works fine on Win7... not very many games don't. Actually, just one that I know of.

If I see a good sale on Wolfenstein, I'll buy it.

Not so sure why, but I got the impression that they tried to do stuff with the Wolfenstein game that just didn't work well. Not sure if it was controls or other such things... but I really don't think it had anything to do with the engine.

A good example- Aliens Vs. Predators- nice and all. But how about just an Aliens game, with the Doom3 engine (maybe modified a bit for crisper textures) with heavy emphasis on atmosphere, environment, and story (this includes top-notch voice acting). It could easily be pulled off with the Doom3 engine. It'd still look decent, run very well on a very wide range of hardware, and would sell great.

I will seriously look into Wolfenstein. Loved the originals but didn't follow the new one cause I got the impression it was only a half-arsed attempt. I might be surprised and really like it, however.

Redeemed, if you like game and want to support them, why wait for the sales? Buy full priced and let everyone know. "I am Redeemed, and I like Doom3 engine games."

Cause... money is not something I have a lot of.

It's either I wait for the sale, wait till I have money to purchase it at regular price, or I pirate it.

Final option is none-existant IMO, so it's one of the other two. Hopefully it comes on sale soon so I can buy it. Otherwise I might be waiting a tad bit longer.

The guy is on Westwood One, his radio program is called "Coast to Coast AM", can't remember his name - they talk about some weird stuff on there.


+1 Prey is a great game! ITs too bad the MP was botched at launch.

I just replayed the demo a couple weeks ago. Wish I had the full game. Maybe I'll play Quake 4 instead?

Ok, just as long as you don't pirate it. Still, a game as old as Prey. I t expect it to get much cheaper now it's left Steam and well out of production.

Amazon has it new, for $7.77 shipped.

Crainger- I already bought Prey... from Amazon... for $7.77 shipped.

I was talking about Wolfenstein earlier. Hope to see a sale on it on steam. If not, maybe Amazon will have it for $7.77 shipped sometime in the future. :: :::: ::::::
