Why wouldn't you trust it? The two mod teams don't have to be at each other's throats just because they both feature a cyberpunk setting.

That's what I've been wondering. While not a TC, it made the original game more fun (or at least more spectacular).

The jump in popularity is ridiculous. Just shows you that most people don't give half a crap about mods unless they are shoved in their face. Still, AoC is an awesome mod and it's nice to see it's getting the exposure it certainly deserves.

If you are going to be doing that, I also suggest making a separate RSS feed for the audio modcast and the video modcast. I'm really only interested in downloading audio (I'd rather stream video right on the site), and I'm sure I'm not the only one who'd rather not have audio and video lumped into one feed.

Because that's what fileplanet does. They go hunting for upcoming mods and secure exclusive releases usually offering something like free promotion in return. They benefit by getting a bunch of desperate rabid fans to sign up to get the mod earlier and don't really have to do anything beyond throwing the download on their front page.

I hate it when the player character doesn't speak. I find that it actually breaks immersion, cause the entire story must be written around the character not speaking. Situations where other characters somehow infer the intentions of the player character often feel very contrived and artificial. Situations where other characters speak to the player character, and the player character can't talk back often make me feel like I'm a spectator of the story, and not actively participating in the game.

Characters don't have to say a lot. In fact, a game might work very well if the player character has a very small amount of lines to say. However, if there are going to be conversations between characters in game, don't make me feel like I'm watching TV.

Time rewind is one of the more interesting features, in that it overrides the usual game mechanic of savegames. Instead of the tedium of quicksaves and quickloads, you have inbuilt rewind that allows you to correct your mistakes on the fly and try again (essentially having the same effect as quicksave/quickload but still keeping you in game). What Prey did with their resurrection mechanic is also a new interesting spin on the same old topic.

No, we must continue to use the comment rating system to send the negative comments about Steam so far into the negatives it necessitates recoding the website in order to allow for such large numbers.

Futuristic world conflicts. Any futuristic game involving fighting ends up being like UT or something along those lines. We need more games like Planetside (and I mean that just settingwise). You can, of course, mix a bit of post apocalyptic in there, that's always fun if done right.
