Im not sure.. you could always check IGN or EA's website...

1.03 for the BFME should be good.. when it ever comes out... because it was made by pros and a test team thrown together by gamereplays.org

If you want to talk about BFME2 you can go to gamereplays.org ... lots of stuff going on there..

Im alittle hesitant... Based on the support that EA gave BFME, im not going to get it unless its freaking spectacular...

It comes out on Feb 28th and it looks awesome! They went back to the "build anywhere" motive and that should make the game a lot more fun. There are several movies showing the new races,techs,etc for the game and also several movies with the lead developer walking you through some aspects of the game. They've been VERY open about the progress and shouldn't have a delay or a buggy game. From what I've seen, it's a toss up between this game and Star Wars Empire At War that comes out on Feb 15th.

Amen to that ! That's what I always wished for... the "build anywhere" possibility.
I also heard that heroes are customizable (you can improve their armor, attack, etc...)
I also heard they have added other heroes such as Sauron but you have to seize the "one" ring somewhere on the map to be able to make use of him.

I'm eagerly looking forward to playing this game !

What impressed me more than anything about the first version was the sound quality. Considering how old it is now, that was totally state of the art sound and you can tell they spent a TON of time on it.

I dont think EA is known for its solid releases. If you look at BF2, it was soooo buggy. The same was with generals. Almost all of EAs games are good, but just buggy out of the box. However, BFME2 looks to be REALLY good.

The only think I noticed about BFME is that you cant have an FPS above 31. I have fraps running and the game is smooth but for some reason 31 is the highest it goes on any res. Bizarre?

EA locked the FPS at 30. cant do anything about that.

Also EA took that original make of BFME and released patch 1.02 (the most disgusting patch every released in the history of games) You cannot argue that 1.02 has ruined the game.

How did this happen? They listened to some forum that complained so much and by trying to please customers and gimmick people into buying bfme2 they made 1.02 based on what these idiots said. I mean its like they didn't even test the demo. Its glitchy, the internet connectivity is horrible, if you own a router EA says its your fault and you need to fix it and the game balance is just horrible.

it was released dec 04, I would hardly call that old...


anyway, releasing this sequel still makes me laugh... its just like EA to put out a sequel to something that technically doesnt have a sequel... they just whore out anything possible...


Im sure itll be a good game tho

I am playing BFME right now, really fun. I love how the cave creatures slap your guys in the face and they go flying


I haven't noticed any bugs, but it is still early yet. Can't wait for Version 2. Age of Empires looks ok, but I like RTS games to have some element of fiction like monsters or magic usage etc.

December of 2004 isn't old to you?
That's light years in the gaming and hardware realm. As far as a sequel not technically existing, it's a game. I could give a rat's butt whether or not it exists to LOTR geeks (not targeted at you). I loved the old game and would love to see a new one with today's newer technology. The major overhaul for this one is the "build anywhere" design.

When referring to the context in which you seem to use old, then yes, I dont think its as old as youre implying it is when specifically talking about the audio side of the game... sure, barely a little over a year is quite a bit of time for games and hardware but the audio side hasnt seen any major advancements for me to call the first ones audio aspect "old"...


and yes, Im a huge LOTR fan, Im sure youre a geek with something else I could make fun of...
... but I was mainly using my statement about a sequel to show my dislike of EA... its obvious theyre making a sequel to whore it out and make as much money as they could... yes yes, businesses are out to make money but I just dont like how EA whores out almost every game they make... but I wont go too much farther into EA, thats a different matter altogether...

Just to give you another way of looking at it, haven't you ever really liked a game and wished they'd offer an expansion or a sequel to it? Would you think the video game world would've been better off in EA stopped at AOE1? I like the fact that EA puts out newer versions of older games. As far as sound not advancing, there's now EAX 5.0 HD and Xram that can be utilized that wasn't there before. It's not a huge leap forward, but it's definitely a step forward. As far as being a LOTR geek, I'm a huge fan of Star Wars, but the latest movies and getting screwed over in SW Galaxies has left a bad taste in my mouth. I mean, I can't even look at Jedi as powerful anymore lol.

Oh yeah, not saying I dont agree that Id like to see newer versions of games I liked, but I think because Im a LOTR fan, Im not particularly fond of how they released a game without regard to the LOTR world

fyi, I think you mean ensemble/ microsoft when referring to AoE...


I admit Im not really a Star Wars fan, just a little interested in it, but Ive heard nothing but bad things lately from you big Star Wars fans... seems like lately you guys are really getting shafted

What was done to Star Wars galaxies I don't wish upon my worst enemy. I've never seen such an incredible game decimated by a company trying to "help" it. At one time, my character was worth several thousand dollars.....I couldn't give it away now lol.
