Back from sea, into the fall release season for gaming goodness.

I can safely recommend this. It's made by the team that did Diablo, but not published by Blizzard. The result:

FPS, with Diablo-like gameplay (Item generation, random 'dungeons', no ammo worries, etc)

Backstory feels pretty Shadowrun, minus the elves. Also has a little PSO to the whole thing.

All in all, For an FPS/RPG modern-fantasy game, it has us giggling with glee over here. Also, I found a rocket launcher that fires napalm.

I am also enjoying this game. Kind of a new twist on the first person shooter.

I like the Item system, as it's a lot like Diablo 2. Normal, Special, Rare and Legendary items that boost your stats and most of them has "Mod" slots like the socket set up in Diablo 2.

All in all It's Diablo, but you get to shoot daemons in the face. It's fun for now. We'll see how long it lasts though.

Haven't installed it yet, still playing the Mask of the Betrayer campaign. It brings back strong memories of Planescape: Torment. I won't be playing another game until I beat it.

I can't play it multiplayer, download the single player patch, or enjoy any of the features I paid for. Because you have to have an account. And when I try to set up an account, it tells me my registration key is already in use, which is impossible as I have never made one. So it's been cloned or something to that effect. And I can't contact Hellgate London: Support to fix the issue because you have to have an account to get to the Support page. And they don't have a telephone number. I tried emailing Flagship, even asking them to forward my message to the right folks if they can't help, but no response. Flagship, ping0 and EA can suck my balls. I won't be supporting them in the future. I will pirate everything they make.

Which is probably what the person who is using your CD key believed as well. Way to continue the process!

Just kidding... that really sucks though, CFS. That's the downside of having a CD key required for support. If someone actually makes a real key generator that works, they just screwed thousands of people out of $50.

Yup. Any pirating I will do wont hurt anyone, though, since I wouldn't use it for online play, only to access offline play. But having to enter your purchase key to access website features? Retarded. Flagship and\or affiliates is as much responsible for screwing their customers as the pirates in this case. Plus, piracy protection only ever hurts the paying customers.

Hmm. Today I get an email advertising the new 0.6 patch. I don't have an account, do the only way they could have gotten my email address is from the message I sent to Flagship. The link provided sends me straight to a download page, no account login required. But also no explanation or feedback on my reg key problem. Methinks they try a quick appeasement. We'll see if that satisfies me.
