Will definitely watch that!

Have you seen that a speed runner has completed the game in 11 minutes?

I saw a headline but didn’t read the story - truthfully I’ve been avoiding coverage of the game to avoid potential spoilers!

which is a bloody shame, because I loved WC3. I couldn’t dive into MMORPG’s though.

Bugs fixed btw. Early game access files interfering with 1.0 files causing the bug. Playing on hardest level is awesome. Great fun.

Now looking forward to City Skylines II out in a month.

Just saw that mortal Kombat has released. The graphics don’t look half bad and it is getting some good reviews.

WOW did prove to be a good money spinner for them but there was no reason for them not to do the sequels to the RTS as well.

it was the 3rd iteration of the series. Warcraft3 was a huge jump in graphics quality from Blizzard and I absolutely loved playing it. However much like Age of Empires 2 it was the same basic game. Same could be said for a lot of the flagship games from that era. Quake 3, etc. The big changes in the game at the time were hardware-based changes. I remember the jump from a Pentium 2 with a (Nvidia) TNT Riva PCI card, to a Pentium 3 with a Voodoo 3DFX AGP was like night and day.

The change to the AGP port upped the graphics quality immensely. added a next level of screen resolution and I think it’s pretty close to the point where the DVI cables came into play.

I was a Counterstrike junkie at that point, playing tournaments in the States for cash/prizes (mostly, free hardware back then).

I take it you’ve played warcraft 1 (orcs and humans) , warcraft 2 and then warcraft 3 as well. Just like me , Pure RTS junkie… like me… I’ve grown up playing those games.

Somewhere down the line , blizzard decided that with the lore developed by metzen , warcraft would be better suited as a MMO. I don’t agree with that but that’s what it is

that’s just where the market had an opening as the world of online gaming was opening up around 2000 with the advent of broadband internet. I’m fairly certain that WOW was one of the first MMORPG’s to exist successfully. It killed our gaming group, guys who I’d see online every night for a few hours just disappeared into that hole.
