I thought I was adapting to the new look of the site and the forum pages. This morning I saw the new game release for Road To Victory and thought I'd check it out. Read a quick overview then went to check out the screens. Imagine my surprise when I couldnt see ANY detail in the screenshots. . That quickly decided me aginst pursuing the game further - I figured if the game screens were that bad in a advertisement, I surely wouldn't think much of them in production.
Then I relaized I hadn't look at other games since the web site redo. So I went over to check out Kharkov:Disaster on the Donets.
Same thing - I don't know for sure what you've done, but I'm fairly confident that Kharkov screens are much better visually than what I see on the product site here. I'll be going over to check them out on SSG site when I leave here, but I've been buying SSG stuff for years, so I'm confident the issue isn't the game screens in the game.
Are you saying the screens don't zoom for you if you click on them? What about the screenshots in the store?
I've probably bought 80% of my last few games through you folks, but seeing screenshots is a must for me - I'm an old paper wargame convert and the game presentation makes a difference. But the way the screenshots are now - well.
It looks like unless something is done, I'll have to rely on AAR's for screenshots. I can do that - I usually don't jump on games right out of the gate( well except for my last PC:K). But you really should reconsider your new screenshots.
I'll take a look, I didn't realize there had been any change in the quality of the screenshots as part of the site upgrade.
And what of Road to victory? Why was there no advertising of the game itself. You can see the amount of posts I have and not once was there any mention of this game.
Why is that. When I opened up my Matrix game forum to see that on there, you can imagine the look of shock to my eyes when I first saw that.
So, I know absolutely nothing of the game. How did it happen that way? the way you guys were pushing Kharkov, certainly you would think that an anouncement of a new WWII campaign style wargame was about to be released.
