    Universal Combat - First Impressions

    I'm not sure first impressions is as important as the lasting impression of the game. I'd like to think that Gameplay is of more importance than Quality and I'm thinking this game excels at the Gameplay aspect. That being said I'll be back in a few days with my impressions.

    Universal Combat Shipping

    Even though I was told last week that it was slated for Feb 11th, I just called a local EB (a few actually) and they do indeed have in here in London, Ontario, Canada for $49.95 CDN. I can only assume EB store employees are mindless robots that are using old price data. This is going to be a problem for EB and their customers if they have to refund the difference and it's all thanks to DC.

    UC Dev Status - Ship it or give it another month?

    Well, this is all interesting for someone who just got here (that's me). I asked my Local EB to set aside a copy just recently and now I find myself in a situation where I want them to charge me double the sale price ($60 CDN instead of around $30 CDN). I was thinking I should just buy two games but I don't think that will help Derek. Nor will buying BCMG because it's also under Dreamcatcher, right? But you know, the $30 I would save isn't worth the grief Derek is going through so I'll cancel my request with EB Games. I'll be more than happy to sign up with any offical protest or boycott of DC. I do hope this works out for the best, and soon, because I got a $100 Gift Card for EB for Christmas and it's burning a hole in my pocket. Guys, how comparable is BCMG to UC? I'm specifically looking for good co-op.

    Co-op & NPC generation request

    quote:Originally posted by Supreme Cmdr: I had since enabled this to a limited extent in the (BCMG/UC) server. If the server has AG on, then there will be NPC fighters in hostile territory. I will probably get around to doing the same on planetary bases. I just have to add marines to the bases etc. No, I don't plan on doing this in BCM Gold. AG=? Thank you. This and prompt personal attention has sold me. I've asked my local EB to save me a copy (Feb 11 in Canada).
  6. From UC FAQ quote:Q. WHY IS THERE NO CO-OP GAMEPLAY MODE MENTIONED IN THE MANUAL? A. Because of how the game is designed, co-op play is not a straightforward feature. What this means is that you and a bunch of friends can join a server as the same RACE/CASTE and engage forces hostile to your race/caste. However, in order to keep the processing and packet requests to a minimum, the ability for bases to launch NPC crafts is disabled. So, while you can attack a station, it won't launch any fighters. It will only defend itself using turrets and missiles. In the future, NPC generation may be enabled for LAN servers only.Good co-op is the biggest Yea/Nea for me buying game so I'm a little conflicted based on this. Can anyone elaborate on how fun just trading and attacking hostile bases w/out fighters coming out to greet us? Can Derek elaborate on how long it might take to get NPC generation for LAN servers? Oh, Hi all. I've been lurking on and off for years.
