Pirates!
« on: November 25, 2004, 09:36:41 AM »

Not Amiga-related, but still! :-)

The classical Pirates! for the Amiga has been re-made for the PC by none other than Sid Meier himself... In stores now!! :-)

According to Atari Sweden it's out on December 3. I hope they remember they promised to send me one.  :-P

If they had a demo I could play, I would most definitely be interested in buying it (funds available of course).  I've been hit too many times with nostalgia and good looking screenshots only to purchase a terrible game.

I'm not condoning Piracy here, but to be honest I usually download the game from the net before I buy it. The demos are usually not enough to get a good grip on the game.

I usually wait for buying a game until it's available for a budget price. Then you know it's a classical game (if you surf around a bit on the internet, you can read and compare mostly independant reviews) and you know it runs fine on your system (I got a new budget pc, could not afford a full blown super gaming pc)

Demos are good enough for me.  Sure they suck when they don't have the good game, but if it's worth it, I'll buy it.

I ususally take the CD from a friend and return it when he misses it.. Sometimes that last a few months...

Beats downing a demo (which seem to get bigger and bigger, tho that's not a real problem) that has 2 levels... Like movie previews, they show you the best parts and the rest is average..

Yeah, same here.  Actually, also, it's handy to have the crack available, as well.  In case it's needed to get the original purchased game to run!  

(Yes, EA and Epic - I'm talking to you, ya arseholes!  Why do I need to crack NHL2005 just to get it to load?  I don't have any of the "DVD emulation software" your brilliant copy protection accuses me of.....)

Yes!

I've been following the development for months. It looks incredible. I actually built a pc lately for UAE and gaming. I'm a little confused about DirectX and gfx cards. I have a Radeon 7500 64mb DDR AGP gfx card in a Gigabyte motherboard, AMD 2.2ghz, and 512mb DDR Ram. Can I run Direct X 9 games with this? (specifically Pirates! and Call of Duty)

TIA
