The Europe in Ruins team is proud to present the latest iteration of their award winning modification with: Europe in Ruins takes the fast paced, intense and surreal combat that you've come to know from Company of Heroes and combines it with persistent environment, ever changing meta-gameplay and ongoing war. The modification sees you creating and commanding your very own battalion in which you can customize with any units and upgrades you wish; Company of Heroes strategy has never had so much choice. Not only do you get to build up your battalion, but as you units battle, they will gain and retain all the experience they have earned, carrying over from battle to battle; going from green to elite! Not only do units gain veterancy, but your battalion as a whole increases in effectiveness through doctrine unlocks and other advantages. Each of these unlocks are designed so that the player can tailor their battalion to their ow

Might want to mention also Kernel Panic ( ). You promised to focus more on on FPS games; well, this one is a nifty Tron like RTS. The ball is in your court :)

I'll check it out. As for variety- we talked about FPS, RTS, RPG, a 2d sidescrolling game and a SPORE mod to boot. Can't fault us for that on this episode! :P

Thanks for mentioning us on the show. Just to clarify we are not part of the Source port that a fellow did a while back. Lastly, I hold no malice in the COF comment, James and I own Half-Life together and he works as our coder as well as COF.

Tatsur0 really hates his Katanas.

Yeah, the SOundtrack is sexy, and the game will surely be a big hit. It'll be the next Counter-Strike in terms of popularity, but hopefully the playerbase'll be better.

Of course, it could also be another mod that is "Too good", and widely discredited, as I've seen other mods in the past. (Ghosts Ops)

Encore also looks very interesting. I can't wait for it either, it should be released before Summer, or so a Dev said, though it was originally Q1 2009...who knows. I'm personally betting on April 1st. :P

diesal_11 Mar 16 2009 says:

the goldeneye source update was because of an error with the server-client round/match times because of diffrent server/client dll's not achivments or anything
the acheivments was because of valve who also "broke" all multiplayer orange box mods servers.
and the reason you couldent find any other maps is you didn't update hence was only finding old crap servers with 3 maps
there are quite a few maps released as well
not accusing you at all but im just explaining what actuly is happening
and yes ge:s is my fav mod:)

The jobs board sounds like a great idea! Very very useful for modders who are aspiring to work in the games industry, particularly since you can easily link to your work on MODDB.

Also thanks for mentioning Heart of Evil Napalam Edition - I should add it's for the Half Life 1 engine ;)

Hey all, I'm a developer on IWBTFG and I thought I'd thanks you guys for the mention here. As you mentioned, the game IS actually intended to be almost unfairly difficult, but we try and make it rediculous and funny enough that it's still enjoyable to play without just being nothing but frustrating.

Actually, that might be cool to talk about sometime, if you're interested in an interview.

Anyway, Thanks again, I should probobally make a news post about this same topic sometime soon.

Odd That. I'm developing IWBTFG, and Alt-F4 works for me and all other playtesters so far o_O.

You did listen to what they said about it? lOl, it was kind of a semi-bash...

Um, how did you come to that conclusion?

Mkilbride Mar 19 2009 replied:

Well, constantly comparing it to TF2, but with most of the content my book, that's bashing...but maybe you guys didn't think it was.

I know if I was making a mod and someone said it was a "barebones copy of xxx game", I'd take offense.

Tatsur0 Mar 20 2009 replied:

Well, none of us said it lacked content. We compared gamemodes to TF2 and the classes since we haven't played the game. You need to spend more time paying attention to whats being said and not finding more reason to spam.
