Klingon Academy/Terminus first looks

Recommended Posts

Heh, posted in there already pretty far up the thread... figured I'd stay cool, lest it erupt into a massive flame war. As much as I'd enjoy that (the damn game doesn't support alt-tabbing, those bastage developers!), I'm none too much in the mood at the moment smile.gif

After reading that guy's post I felt compelled to go over there and point some of that nonsense out.

Interesting little battle over there. That guy MohammadX is making himself look more and more foolish by the post. I find it interesting how everone else over there with a differing opinion seems to be rather civil about it, while this guy's spews waste with every sentence.

Why? SomethingAwful has Jeff K, VoodooExtreme has Sweet Dick, PlanetHalf-Life has (had) Walter, and I have radioactive garden gnomes! What's wrong with that? No need to insult them just because they're... because they're... *sniff* different!

hehehe, I told ye to get rid of some of that junk ye had on the ole HDD there Parias. But ye didn't have to can KA confused.gif

Taking into account yer legendary skill with the written prose, I will take a pass on this form of entertainment that this title, Terminus, portends to embellish. Not that I was interested anyway biggrin.gif

Heh, I'd have avoided it if I could Gallion, but I've got one of those damned hard drives that mysteriously run out of room the very second you turn your back. Meaning that I couldn't really find much else to delete smile.gif

I dunno. I think the real issue is that Parias decided and publicly stated that he was going to give the game a bad review before he had even installed the thing:

quote:

Now it's time to move on to Terminus........ my first bad game review, I can't wait!

This certainly gave me the impression that he never even intended to give the game a fair shake. Now, of course a review is supposed to present the opinion of the reviewer. But hopefully, this opinion will have been formed while actually playing the game, not from looking at the box.

Trust me Milod, despite what I said on here, I had every intention of giving the game a fair chance. What I do on Hardnews only rarely directly ties into what I do on here, if at all.

Milod makes a good point. Parias, please explain!

One thing I do not want and which is already happening, is people thinking that because you come here, that your review of Terminus was biased. Thats not very good and I frown at the notion.

I just want to say that Parias is a welcome member of this community, but his views are entirely his own and do not reflect those of others here who have not acknowledged same.

I for one think that Terminus doesn't go anywhere. X:BTF is a better product and will probably get better with Xtension. Terminus is not for everyone and like every niche title, will have its own fans. Even some of my own beta testers can't stand it, while 1 or 2, like parts of it. Nothing wrong with that. I hated it because it doesn't do anything that I have'nt seen before, done better elsewhere.

That is all.

As I said SC, while I'm a part of the community here, my reviews and previews don't really tie in here at all. Despite what I may have said, I still had every intention of giving this game a fair trial before reviewing it, which is why I took as much time as I could to play the game to death before starting on my review. Yeah, I love BC3k, and yeah, I'm eagerly awaiting BCM like everyone else on this forum. And yes, I did indeed state before-hand that the game would be getting a bad review, which as I now understand was probably a mistake on my part.

When I made that initial comment, I was referring to the fact that the demo had flushed my registry and the way the box had shown up (along with the fact that I heard on the Station Terminus forums that I wasn't the only one who had it showing up in that condition) were both facts that had me already concerned about this game. But those were both minor issues in my review, and I believe I stated pretty clearly what issues I had.

And like I keep saying to other people, I gave it a 5, instead of my original idea for a 4 or 3, since it _DOES_ have a few good points to it, and I admit that I had fun with it for the first little while. I stand by my review of the game.

And yeah, you're correct SC, believe me, if my review was as biased against it as most make it out to be, I wouldn't be with the page anymore smile.gif

Well, on the plus side, at least I now know how sites like EvilAvatar have it. Anybody remeber the riot that ensued after his Tribes review? *Grin*
