    Heh, I know EA has butchered alot of games in the past but they also have had some successes. EA Sports games for example hold up well, the C&C series is alive and well, not to mention the Sims.

    My first RPG was akalabeth (precursor to Ultima 1) and played all though out the entire series. Lands of Lore was another and then Planescape and onto NWN. (Dungeon Siege wasn't bad also, A LOT better then the movie).

    I caught that. I'm a bit busy today (and their comment code's busted...) so I'll have to bang out a formal letter to them from Earl Consulting Services (I'm not about to commit Michael Simms to things without his say-so... ) and see what they have to say.

    [edit]

    This is even more funny... Their publisher is in town. No promises...but I'll check into this shortly and get word back on the forums about what their take is on at least a Linux version out of them.

The problem would be that if we COULD find the rights holder, I doubt they'd be reasonable on royalties to make it happen. If you can find me the rights holder and I can make him allow it to happen, I'd knock it out for you just because of what I said- because it'd be a Linux SKU to point people to to help fix the problem.

    Wanna step up to the plate? I can't do it on my own because MY plate's a bit full with things including a full-time job above and beyond the LGP stuff.

    Heh... So you can run it in Wine... With what class of machine, pray tell, Deanjo?

    It's worth noting that your remarks with regards to stretching machines is valid- for the power gamer crowd. You. Me. What about the rest of the Linux community? They're not you or I.

    Furthermore, you want Sacred 2 and things like it?

    You're NOT going to get them with the attitude you're espousing here. PERIOD. Each purchase of even a "bargain bin" version of the Windows title is a vote for THAT platform. Each vote counts against you even though you're using Linux. They don't give a damn about how many people are using Linux (even though it's a hell of a lot more than the 10 million that keeps getting bandied around by IDC...)- all they care about is how many units of an SKU sells.

    When you buy a Windows version and run it under WINE, you inflate the numbers for the Windows version.

    All of you keep WHINING about not having software around to play- well, you guys are part of the damn problem, not the solution when you claim "why would I buy that when I can run it in WINE" or similar. When you DON'T buy some of those "old" titles, the studios and publishers don't have any metrics whatsoever on the prospects of selling things.
