'Mind Gaming' Could Enter Market This Year

Double_Duo_Decimal Re:The Power Glove seemed cool too (154 comments)

Or what about Half-Life 2: what if you could issue commands for your forces, like "medic!" "cover me!" or "attack that strider!" and your squad would actually do something useful, instead of just complain and get shot (which is about the limits of their current capabilities)? In UT2k4 you could give orders to bots on your team by using a designation+order voice recognition thingy. If you had three bots, no matter their names, they'd have a "title" of alpha, beta, or gamma. You could hold a button, say "Beta, cover me." and "Gamma, defend.", then watch them run about to fulfill your orders. It would be nice if more developers would incorporate a similar system in single player squad based games.

Bioshock on Steam

Double_Duo_Decimal Double_Duo_Decimal writes  |  more than 7 years ago

Double_Duo_Decimal (1104907) writes "Irrational Games' BioShock, which has been eagerly anticipated as the spiritual successor to System Shock, is now available for preloading on the Valve Steam network.

Preloading allows a user to download the game files in the background, which are then automagically transformed into game files when the game is unlocked, which in this case happens on Aug. 21 in the United States, and Aug. 24 in Europe."
