I also noticed the game on sale.  Is this a real difficult game?  I don't have that much experience with the naval games. Thanks

If Steam can work for Matrix and Eagle Dynamics, I can't see how a transition to Steam would be a bad thing for BFC.

I seriously donít understand why a company WOULDNT go to steam. I donít bother with Battlefront games ever since the disaster I had trying to update to the new engine and a subsequent patching info. The latter never resolved by a company that didnít seem to care. Regardless, Iíd buy every single one of their games if they were on steam since I donít have to worry about buying patches, DRM and activating subscription crap

I agree, I was a big supporter of all their games.  However, all the upgrades and patching problems, forget it.  I like Steam and it makes it really easy.  That's the Key word = EASY!!!  If it ain't easy, most will not bother.  Maybe Matrix could get the titles or release the code for mods.

Battlefront never figured out that they could put their games on steam and have occasional 50% off sales and everyone in the whole world would probably own a copy...They could never see past their own noses when it came to marketing or strategy.  What's better, 10,000 owning a copy at 50.00 or 500,000 owning a copy at 20.00 ?  The world has left battlefront behind unfortunately.  I do like the idea of the catalog available on gog though.

So true

Thank God Germany didn't have this much luck in the war.

The man who was playing one of the worst matches in his career made the 2-1 in the final minute of the ridiculously long extra time, after Sweden was denied what looked like a penalty in the first half.

Beautiful goal by Toni Kroos, undeserved victory.

Over here in Belgium people are becoming more optimistic about our chances.

General Discussion / Hey Jarhead!!

So...I caved.  The gun store had a 10% off sale yesterday and today.  I waited until about 11am this morning before sauntering over.  I said if the RDB was still in stock, Iíd pick it up.  I thought for sure it would be gone but they actually had two on the rack.  Picked one up but I wonít be able to get to the range until Weds.  (I could go tomorrow but going on Sat or Sun is pure misery.  Hour plus waits just to get a lane and 45 min between target changes.)

Hopefully it works as intended.  I know Karl-Tec has a rep for dodgy quality control.  I had good luck with my KSG.  Hope it continues with the RDB as well.

Well OK. If it is the consensus to play the opposite side, then I'll reallocate opponents, so that you all get a bit of variation with your gaming partners. I'll leave things as it is for a couple more days in the event that some of you are totally against this - as then it just won't work.

But if I see nothing more regarding this post other than approval, then I'll set up the mirror games for you.
