    Remember when EA weren't so evil? It was before the PS2 was released so most of you won't but us oldies do.

    Anyway, they're bringing back a classic franchise! Syndicate, the classic cyberpunk RTS game.

    No consoles confirmed. Now lets see them bring back Road Rage, Need for Speed* & Desert Strike with good games.


    *I mean ones that are more like the originals and not ones from this centuary.

    Yay! I really liked the first one! I was pretty young when I got it so I found it quite hard. Sure, the first few missions where nice and easy... but then there were missions where all the bad dudes had gauss rifles! T.T

    I do have fond memories of using some device that makes civilians follow your and they'll pick up any weapons found on the ground and become your zombie slaves.

    Good times.

    EDIT: Oh, 200 posts. omw up!

    Aye.

    Still at least Molyneux is still doing good stuff. Shame Mucky Foot (which had many ex-Bullfrog members) died afterward but at least they gave us Urban Chaos and Startopia.

    Also if Starbreeze are developing it then it could be really good. They did Chronicles of Riddick (great game), The Darkness (disapointing but still good) and some other games that were good too.

    Resurrecting an amiga mouse to play this was one my earliest electronics memories. One of the few times I made a corrupt sector on a floppy disc through use as well.

    Thanks Hadrian.

    I think it was called persuadetron or something like it...

    I loved this game backi in '94 on my 486, thank god for DOSBox!

    Bullfrog was the developer back then, magic carpet, theme hospital, theme park (which is available on DS), dungeon keeper 1 /2...

    Like homebrew.

    All of the bugs from the PC version were present and there were some problems with the stylus but that didn't stop me playing i for hours & hours.

    Can't wait for a new Syndicate, hopefully it will rock just as much as the first two.
