1. Downtime notice - Oct. 17, 2017

    Well, it's a permanent downtime. After 22 years of service it's time for a final goodbye. Our live production servers will be taken offline on October 17th. The simple fact is that there are plenty of better ways to get the secrets hidden in games and connect with other gamers. There are plenty of Youtube channels and Twitch streams that will show games played at their best, something that plain text and screenshots can't convey. If you want to connect to other gamers outside of those services, there are plenty of Discord servers that offer a direct and engaging community experience.

    Please visit our friends at GameFAQs.com or IGN.com for information such as codes, guides, reviews, etc. They're the real deal and have always been respectful and honest about how they operate. Our ghost pages can be found on Archive.org for those times that you'd like to take a look back at how things were.

    Thanks to everyone that has contributed content and time managing our community, and especially to you, our dear visitors!

    Our last words: "Up ,Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, A, B, Select, Start"

    So, I remember somebody saying how excited they were about this game. Who's still planning on getting it? If there's a few people then I'll certainly get it at some point, even if I'd be playing on a touchpad until I go home. :D

    I'll probably buy it at launch if everybody does, but my time will be limited due to exams.

    Likewise, I don't think I'll have the time to get in to this soon, but maybe in the summer.

    I'll play with you at launch. :D

    I'm sure that some of the guys in the Steam Group will pick this up once they realize how awesome it's going to be. I am just too excited for it, and I am not sure why.

    I think that it looks great. I don't blame you for looking forward to it.

    The shooting looks really bad. And it was some flaming hot garbage when it was a HL2 mod. The graphics are much better but the guns still seem stiff. Also the creator is a ****head.

    Despite my excitement, I don't expect a stellar game. After all, it's only $10. I just think it will allow for some good co-op, open world, dino killing action.

    I didn't realize it was $10. Might be worth it at that price.

    I feel like you are getting your 10$ worth. Meh.

    Well, after the chaotic launch and the fact that the big Monday patch (actually released Wednesday) didn't entirely fix the crippling bugs in the game, I think I'll hold off.

    Primal Carnage looks better anyway. It's a similar premise but you can play as the Dinosaurs as well.

    Are people still critical?

    Well, from a browse of the Steam forum for the game it seems like there's still a multitude of issues, especially connection issues.

    The game itself appears to be very average at best.

    I think I will, but I am unsure.

    There was a major patch that helped some issues, but there are still plenty of problems. The devs are very dedicated to getting everything into working order though.

    I still think the game is worth the $9 (it's a dollar off at the moment).

    Well, I WAS going to get it, until you guys started criticising it! :D

    I still recommend that you think about it. You (and others on GW) buying the game would definitely give me more of a reason to get it since it's a co-op game. For the $9, however, I am thinking of just getting it. The game looks fun and I never expected anything great from it.

    That's a real shame. The review and comments are very critical, though.

    I'm not sure how good Primal Carnage looks, but I'd enjoy playing as a dinosaur, I think. :D

    Well, I'd imagine that I'll be playing a fair amount of COD once I'm finished with exams. I'll likely wait until I finish university in a month or so before starting my PC gaming, due to the lack of a mouse here.

    From about Monday onward I'll be playing more CoD early in the morning. Which is like 1 pm your time.
