I hear there's this new Silent Hunter game...

Looks like the model is free to play, flash based. How realistic will it be? How will the game manage time compression, transit to base, 3D crew, role-playing options, game saves, upgrades for pay, and many other elements?

Stay tuned.

I'm going to go ahead and just side with Jefmajor on his opinion on this.

(Be warned language!)

My thoughts:

WHY UBISOFT, WHY GODS WHY WHHHHYYY WOULD YOU DO THIS?!?!?!

Oh right, Money.

Could somebody merge all fifty-squillion threads on this, please.

Or should I start a new thread?

By all means, please do. Somebody may have missed the others.

Sorry, Neal. I know you started the new forum that was asked for, but I couldn't resist. This is a good thing.

I didn't even realise it was in it's own little section. That's a good thing, it'll get people here and maybe into the other games.

Neither did I at first. I had to go back and change my post, luckily before you saw it.

I notice he's also moved as many of the other threads here that he could find.

Good! They were becoming a bit too much.

And yes, you beat me to noticing it. This time . . .

Judging by the sparse screenies depicted on ubi's site, it looks like a dressed up Aces of the Deep or Silent hunter 1, minus the awesome campaign structure.

The golden age of gaming has ended.

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to post-creative corporatism.

And the worst thing about this whole tragedy? The board members who give the nod to publish this trash are all patting themselves on the back saying, "Good job guys. Our customers will be really excited about this..." They really believe that they care more for customers than for money.

Excuse me, I'm going to be ill.

Just want to say, for a future SH title, i really wanted , except for submarines instead of planes.

This "SH online" is way off the mark. In fact, its a circle runner.

Exactly! Agree 100%. They got the dang thing in reverse.

Oh no Ducimus, on the contrary: That one despite being about airplanes is still probably more accurate as a subsim than SHO
