Broken Promises: The developers are LIARS!
WTF, man? We've been waiting for about a YEAR for these jerks to follow through on their promise to release a version where single-player offline gameplay is available, and they LIED! Now, I'm not criticizing in any way, shape, or form folks who favor MMORPG-type stuff, but this format, for a small variety of reasons, is not for everyone. Old farts like me, especially ones with actual combat experience, really don't tolerate very well the way some of these wet-behind-the-ears snot-wipes launch intentionally inflammatory diatribes/rants for the stupidest of reasons, especially during online gameplay with their temporary teammates. Gaming is supposed to be FUN, and shooters are a socially acceptable way to release agression (with the VIRTUAL weapons, not the hostile and non-constructive mouthings that would get one's throat cut or neck snapped IRL). I got started in PC shooters with the very first Tomb Raider in 1995, and it was a welcome change from the primitive arcade games I'd grown up with (Pong, Asteroids, Star Defender, and Galaga). Now the possibilites are endless; there's something for everyone, literally (not FIGURATIVELY, but literally). Now, Dino D-Day is a somewhat ridiculous premise, but it's SUPPOSED to be; that's the point, to be fun. I watched a trailer for the game in German (I lived in Germany for eight years during the Vietnam war), and I about laughed my ♥♥♥ off. Now, this looks like a fun game...so, what happened? Not only did they NOT release a single-player version, but there's no bot-play, either, not to mention the multi-player fans are getting pissed off at the lack of continued servers/support. Too bad; I was kinda looking forward to [hypothetical I just pulled outta my ♥♥♥] Dino D-Day: Triumph At Trondheim...compysauri on skis, troodons on snowboards, and velociraptors racing on snow-bikes? THAT would be funny.
